The Honest Co. Review

 The Honest Co., founded by Jessica Alba and Christoper Galvagin (They just celebrated their First Year this week!) with the goal of providing effective, non-toxic and sustainable baby, child, adult and household items to everyone at an affordable price. While they do have monthly subscription boxes (or bundles) called Honest Diapers Bundle – $79.95, with your choice of size and patterns (yes, patterns!) along with wipes, or the Family Essentials Bundle – $35.95 (you can mix and match 5 bath and body products along with household cleaners – they also have an option to add 3 more products at a discounted rate.)  After such a great experience with the diapers I ordered over a week ago, we decided to jump in and try both subscriptions.

OK, so how cute are the inside of the boxes?!? They even read “Thank You” once you get to the bottom!!

The first five items we chose for our Family Essentials Bundle were:

*Shampoo & Body Wash in Sweet Orange Vanilla – This smells AWESOME! Do you remember 50/50 bars? Yeah, it’s like that! We used it on the Kiddo and it was nice and light and did not weigh down his hair at all (head full of curls) in fact they seemed higher and and had more body!

*Conditioning Mist in Sweet Orange Vanilla – Again, AWESOME scent! This also made it Really easy to brush through his damp hair and all the ouchy tangles!

*Bubble Bath in Tangerine Dream – This is a very light scent, more of a hint of tangerine. It is a very liquid formula but, unlike other natural/non-toxic brands, I did not have to work for the bubbles (no swishing my hand in the water to work them up) the bubbles were there on their own!

*Laundry Detergent in Free & Clear – We have not used this yet.  We still need to get though the last of our other stuff. I will report back on it’s performance.

*Oxy Boost – Again, still waiting to get through the rest of our name brand oxy cleaner. I really have high hopes for this though!

The monthly subscription comes with 6 packages of diapers, the designs we chose are anchors, colorful leaves, dinosaurs, and trendy skulls (the number of diapers per package depends on the size you order) and 4 packages of wipes (which seems like a lot right now.)  After buying our first packages of diapers for a test run, we absolutely fell in love! Not only are they non-toxic and plant based (see their list of attributes below) but they really are very absorbent and the kiddo loves picking out the next “Dry butt!” It makes it so much easier to change a diaper when they are participating, rather than having to chase them down!!

  • Naturally biodegradable & pure plant-based PLA in the inner & outer sheet (NO petrochemicals/oil)
  • Bio-based wheat / corn super-absorbent materials blended with reduced SAP gel
  • Choose from a growing selection of modern & fashionable design options for your girl or boy
  • Secure moisture barrier cuffs to prevent leakage or blowouts
  • Comfortable stretchy, re-fastenable grip tabs
  • Contoured fit & non-irritating feel for the most sensitive skin
  • Premium fit & performance, completely safe, and super-cute designs – definitely not your standard white diaper

Overall, we are very happy with The Honest Co. and our choices !  We will definitely be keeping up with our subscriptions and I look forward to trying other products in their Family Essential Bundle! The diapers we will definitely be recommending to all our parent friends and parents-to-be, in fact, they would be “gift worthy” for any showers you may be attending!!
