Honest Organic Body Oil – Value: $9.95
This is a staple in our house. We use this oil from head to toe and will continue to repurchase it over and over. I love to slather this on the kiddos after bathes, before bed. It’s like getting a mini massage and they get so relaxed. Great stuff, can’t say enough about it. I only wish it came in a bigger bottle.
Honest 3-n-1 Facial Towelettes – Value: $6.95
This is a newer product from Honest. I don’t know why I was expecting them to look and feel like the diaper wipes. They’re super thin, no scent if any, and leave a slight film, almost slimy, until it completely dries. I took off my eye makeup and did not experience any sting. That’s an A+ in my book. I’m not calling them favorites yet, but they do the job.
Honest Deodorant in Vetiver – Value: $8.95
I originally ordered the Lavender Vanilla scent, but when my shipment date neared, they sent me an email to pick something else, sigh… just call me Snooze and Lose. Oh, well! This is my second deodorant from Honest. I’ve tried the Bergamot Sage and I liked it! The key is to spray a layer, let it dry, do your makeup or something, then come back and spray another layer. It will last the duration of a typical work day. This scent is pretty, blah. Thank goodness for perfume.
Honest Toothpaste – Value: $5.95
Honest Kid’s Toothpaste – Value: $5.95
We also repurchase the Honest Toothpastes over and over. I would say we probably reorder every 3 months. They come sealed so you can stock up and/or purchase as an add-on if you’re not quite ready for your next open toothpaste. Toothpastes are also available in travel sizes. The only thing that’s missing are new flavors…can we get bubblegum, kiwi-banana, or something?!
Gymboree Coupon – Value: 20% off entire purchase
I also received another 20% off coupon for Gymboree that expires at the end of July. I don’t count this towards the value of the box. They are nice to have, but I’ve already received one last month in the diaper bundle. I’ll pass this one over to a friend.
Verdict: My family and I really enjoy the Honest Company. There isn’t a dollar amount that you can put on the value of this service as a whole. The convenience is life-changing and I can’t imagine not having them in our home. We tell all our friends and young parents that we meet about it and we even turned our housekeepers onto the service. It’s just that great to have!
