Honest Company is a company that I have been interested in for a while.I’ve heard good things, and like the ethos of the company. I actually enjoy using “baby” products for myself. I definitely enjoy knowing that what I am putting on my skin isn’t the stuff of sci-fi mutant creation. Plus, I have Celiac’s disease— you have to be careful with skincare and makeup products because they often have wheat in them.
Anyways, I sent away for a sample bundle. It’s free— you just have to pay the $5.95 shipping (in the US).
I haven’t had a chance to use the healing balm, so I’ll have to get back to you on this one. I’ll hold onto it because I tend to use these in the winter for chapped hands and face. A little bit goes a long way and it keeps very dry skin from cracking.
The lotion is nice and light. It doesn’t really smell, which is good for people (especially those fresh from the womb) who can’t have fragrances on their skin. It’s not super moisturising, so if your skin is very dry I wouldn’t recommend this. But I can see this being a nice lotion to put on a baby to keep them from getting dry skin.
The shampoo and body wash is a baby shampoo. It’s light— again, it doesn’t have a fragrance, but it’s what you would expect from a baby shampoo.
This hand soap is something I really like. It is supposed to smell like lavendar, but I feel like it is a bit minty. It’s a nice smell— very “clean”. It works well too, which is a plus when you are talking about soap.
The cleaner is okay. It’s good for surface cleaning, but if you need to do some heavy duty cleaning, this is not your guy. That is, for countertops or daily cleaning, it’s good. It has a very light scent, I can’t really describe it, but I like it.
If I was making a purchase, I would probably buy the hand soap and maybe the cleaner for everyday wipe downs (okay, I probably will be buying the hand soap next time I need some). I would buy the shampoo for a baby, but it’s obviously not that great for people with a lot of hair. The lotion is alright— probably not worth the money for me— but possibly for a baby.
The big draw of the company is how eco friendly and “safe” it is. I cringe to think of all the crap ingredients we put on tiny people when we don’t have to, so spending the extra for Honest Company products is something I would do if I had a baby.
Let me know what you think, and if you have tried any other Honest products!
