This is a review of the Kiss my Face upper management gel. I got curious about this gel after watching a fellow youtuber achieve great wash and go's (wng) with the product. I must say that I am not disappointed that I decided to go on the hunt for this product and try it myself. Needless to say I LOVE IT.

I used this gel on freshly washed hair over my Curl Junkie Smoothing Lotion leave in conditioner. I sectioned my hair into 8 sections and worked the gel through my sections. I did not rake it through instead I smoothed it into my sections ( this method works best for my curls). I must say that the application of this gel was not great for me. It was not slippery to the touch and as I applied it to my hair it felt a little stripping, kind of as if I was applying lemons to my hair however, I continued with the application. Well, I am so happy I didn't stop mid application and run under the shower to wash it off because the end result was a bouncy, natural feeling, wng that lasted me 3 days straight and could have lasted up to five days.
Since this was an impulse purchase, I only purchased one bottle however, the results were so wonderful that the next day I immediately went back to the store and purchased the last bottle that was left on the shelf. That weekend I went on line and found it at such an affordable price that I ordered 5 more bottles for my stash.

As you can all see the pros out weigh the cons. I know that most curlies are in love with eco styler gel for the most economical product to achieve a great wng. However eco for wng on my hair is a fail. The Kiss my Face gel has proven to work for me every time and it works well with other products such as Curl Junkie smoothing lotion. I give this product a 9 out of 10 rating curlies, and I only give it a 9 because no product is perfect.
