THE HONEST COMPANY - PRODUCTS REVIEW



When The Honest Company first reached out to me to review their products, I was silently jumping up and down. This had to be one of the most anticipated items that I've been wanting to try out. I first heard about this company when Jessica Alba, the co-founder, appeared on The Nate Show (so sad when it got canceled). I was very impressed with the company's commitment to making safe, effective, bio-degradable and non-toxic products affordable and not just a luxury that only a few can enjoy.  All products are proudly made in America and made for the whole family to use. 

Also with every product purchased, The Honest Company donates product, money, time, and effort to addressing critical health & social issues affecting children and families. This year they are partnering with a nonprofit organization, Baby2Baby

As you read on, I will show you what I received and my ratings based on my impression of them after using them for a week. 

So this is what showed up at my doorstep...



How cute is the packaging?


Ok let's start off with the diapers...




Diapers (rating: 4 out of 5)
The Good: Cute designs, non-toxic, chlorine-free, super-absorbent and made with a stretchy band in the back for extra security (you know, for those poop explosions up the back).
The Bad: Found these to be a little stiff compared to Pampers.





Healing balm (rating: 4 out of 5)
The good: This was great for soothing my son's eczema.
The bad: The formulation was a little greasier and stickier than I would like, but it may be due to all the organic oils.

Hand soap (rating: 4 out of 5)
The good: It washed off easily and had a nice clean scent of lemongrass.
The bad: It left my hands a bit dry afterwards.

Face + body lotion (rating: 4 out of 5)
The good: The formulation was very lightweight, absorbed well, and left the skin incredibly soft.
The bad: The initial smell reminded me of barbie dolls for some reason, however it did eventually wear off. I'm not sure if I just got a bad batch, because most reviewers loved the smell...

Laundry detergent (rating: 5 out of 5)
The good: Cleaned very well and did not leave our clothes feeling stiff (even without fabric softener).  
The bad: None



Shampoo + Body Wash (rating: 5 out of 5)
The good: We love this product! Our longtime favorite's been Burt's Bees Shampoo and Body wash for our boys and we found this one to be very similar. The scent is a little sweeter and the consistency is a little thicker as well. I've been finding myself reaching for this more than the Burt's Bees.  
The bad: None

These are some other items that I'm interested in from their beauty and cleaning line:
sunscreen, multi-surface cleaner, and fruit+veggie wash.

I think it's great that the company's constantly introducing new products and improving on old ones based on their customers' feedback. If you are still skeptical or hesitant to buy their full-sized products, they also offer free trial kits (just pay $5.95 for shipping and handling). 

*Please note that when you sign up for the free trial, you are automatically enrolled to be a member of the Honest Company. You have 7 days to cancel, for any reason, if you choose not to be charged monthly to receive their different bundles sent to your home.

Have any of you used their products before? What did you think of them? I would love to hear from you!



Disclosure: As part of The Honest Company's affiliate program, I was sent these products to review for my own use. I was not asked to write this review nor will I be paid to do so. All opinions are 100% mine and these products were shared/recommended because our family really like them. This post does, however contain affiliate links, which means I will earn a small commission based on any purchases made.

  2. Great review! I'm such a sucker for packaging. These all look great. Did you end up continuing to use any of the products?

    1. Thanks! I'm actually still loving the body wash for my boys. They're sold at Costco now and we're well stocked up!
