I like that The Honest Company uses packing that is recyclable and made of recycled content.
Here is my order summary showing everything in my Essentials Bundle, my add-ons, and my free gift.
Here is what I included in my Bundle:
Shampoo + Body Wash – Perfectly Gentle (Sweet Orange Vanilla) – Retail Value $9.95
Shampoo + Body Wash – Ultra Calming (Dreamy Lavender) – Retail Value $9.95
We have been using the Sweet Orange Vanilla Shampoo + Body Wash for a while now. Honest somewhat recently added the Dreamy Lavender scent so I decided to try it. My kids like both, but I think I slightly prefer the Sweet Orange Vanilla scent.
Bathroom Cleaner – Retail Value $5.95
Glass + Window Cleaner – Retail Value $5.95
The bathroom cleaner works great and smells good. This is the first time I have tried the Glass + Window Cleaner and I was impressed. It easily cleaned my windows and mirrors and didn’t leave streaks.
Healing Balm – Retail Value $12.95
This is one of my favorite Honest Company products ever. You can use this on anything from diaper rash, to a cut, to skin abrasions, to your cat. Yes, I used this on my cat when she accidentally abraded a small part of her skin. However, this is certainly not the intended use and I recommend using common sense here.
The next 3 items are my add-ons this month. To get the most bang for your buck, include your most expensive items in the Bundle itself whenever possible since the cost there is set. Then you can choose up to 3 add-ons which will be at 25% off their regular price.
Toilet Cleaner – Retail Value $5.95
I can’t believe I am saying this, but this smells really fresh and actually makes this mundane chore … almost fun. Almost. It definitely helps.
Each dish soap bottle was individually wrapped in case it leaked it wouldn’t get on everything. One of the bottles leaked about a teaspoon during transit, but it was contained within the wrapping and didn’t get on anything else. The other bottle was completely fine.
Lemon Verbena Dish Soap – Retail Value $3.95
White Grapefruit Dish Soap – Retail Value $3.95
Both of these work well and I like both scents so I went for one of each. Variety is the spice of life.
Because my 3 add-ons totaled $13.85, I received an Add & Save Discount of 25% (-$3.46) off my total, so my add-ons cost me $10.39.
At the end of last month, The Honest Company offered a free gift of your choice for existing customers through April 29 or while supplies last. Love this! I wish more subscription boxes would do this. I opted to try one of their Aromatic Soy Candles.
Orange Cypress Candle – Retail Value $19.95. The candle was securely packaged. This is the first time I have smelled this Orange Cypress scent and I like it. It smells very fresh and as if I am actually standing in a grove.
Hand poured in the USA. Burns up to 50 hours.
The candle is in a recycled and reusable glass tumbler.
Showing ingredients (soy wax, natural essential oils, and unadulterated plant essences) and also what is not in there (synthetic fragrances).
Value: My Essentials Bundle cost $35.95 + $10.39 for optional add-ons + $2.92 tax. This is just shy of $50 for about $62 worth of items. This value will change based on the individual items you select for your bundle and/or any add-ons you pick. My overall value is a little bit lower than I often receive because I wanted to try some lower priced items, for example, the Glass + Window Cleaner, that were new to me this month. Plus this month, I also received the candle as a FREE loyalty gift. I did not count that into the total, but it retails for $19.95, so my total Retail Value here would be even higher this month.
Verdict: I feel good about using Honest Company products around my family. They work well and have pleasant scents/attractive packaging which helps make cleaning fun. I also appreciate the convenience of having everything automatically sent to my house which saves me time. So, for me, the value + all these other factors = WIN.
