The Honest Company

As a mother to five children, I am very concerned about the products we use in our household. I want to make sure that the ingredients we use on the items that my kids come into contact with everyday are safe.  That includes what we wash our clothing with, our hands, our hair, and our bodies.  Ideally, these items would be natural and gentle and free of harsh chemicals.  Oh, yeah, and I’d like them to be affordable too.  That’s why I am so excited about my recent opportunity to try some of the great items from The Honest Company. 

The Honest Company offers cleaning and beauty products as well as baby items like diapers and wipes.  The company was founded by Jessica Alba.  You receive products in one month bundles that are delivered right to your door so it is a great time saver!  Of course you can purchase individually or in 3 or 6 month supplies as well.  In the Family Essentials Bundle, you would choose 5 products from a list of everything from bubble bath to dishwasher pods.  They also have bundles for buying diapers and wipes.  The designs on the diapers are really cute!  Kinda makes me wish I still had a baby to wear them.  OK, not really, but if I did, these would be the diapers I would choose.  They are naturally biodegradable and plant based with no harmful chemicals of any kind.  I think the only thing that would equal would be cotton cloth diapers.

 I was able to sample some of the personal products like the face and body lotion which felt really nice on my skin.  It is a blend of organic olive oil, calendula, and organic aloe and fragrance free.  My skin gets really dry and it was instantly soothed and softened.  I also sampled the hand soap which had the clean scent of organic lemongrass as well as the shampoo & body wash which was also tear-free so it was very gentle and had an orange vanilla scent.  The laundry detergent was the only household cleaner that I received but it worked well and was fragrance free and safe for using in front loading and/or HE machines.  I received the healing balm which can be used on irritated skin such as diaper rash.  It had a bit of a peculiar smell and felt a little greasy but would probably work well for protecting sensitive skin.  My favorite product was the lotion and I am eager to check out more of their items.

The Honest Company was started by a mom and a dad who, like many modern parents, were increasingly worried about products made with questionable chemical ingredients. But the alternatives they found were often expensive, inaccessible, bland, or ineffective. In response to this clear need for something better, they created The Honest Company to ensure that parents (or anyone for that matter!) could easily find natural and non-toxic eco-friendly products that are beautiful, effective, and affordable. From customized product bundles to diapers and wipes to an ever-expanding line of cleaning and personal care products, you can find everything you need at and have it delivered directly to your front door.
