This post may contain referral/affiliate links. Read the full disclosure.

Honest_Co_Diapers_January_2017_Box

The Honest Company offers five different “bundle” subscriptions: Essentials (household items), Diapers & Wipes, Health & Wellness (vitamins), Organic Infant Formula + DHA  and Beauty.  

My Subscription Addiction pays for this subscription. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes).

This review is of the Diapers & Wipes Bundle, $79.95 a month, box. 

Note from Liz: The Honest Company was recently in the news about cancellation issues. Currently, you have to call in to cancel your subscription (you can update the ship date from your online account, though.) Phone wait times were reported at up to half an hour in some cases. The Honest Company has issued this response:

“Our mission from day one has been to help people live happy, healthy lives by providing products that families everywhere can trust. We are constantly looking at ways that we can further improve our customer service policies and procedures. Online subscription cancellation is a feature we’ve been working on and plan to enable in the very near future as a way to provide our customers an easier way to make changes to their subscription preferences 24 hours a day/7 days a week. We look forward to implementing these changes shortly. In the meantime, we always offer refunds to any customer who wishes to cancel, without exception, as well as a 365 day return policy.”

Honest Company Diaper bundles are always huge since they have enough (or more than enough) for a month! Here’s what I got this month.

If you’re not familiar with this subscription, here are the basics: You always get 6 packs of diapers and 4 packs of wipes each month. For the diapers, you can select your favorite patterns, and Honest will randomly pick for you depending on what’s available. You can swap in Overnight Diapers or Pull-Up style diapers for any of the 6 packs. You can even change the size on just some of the diapers, and you can also add on extra products for a 25% discount.

I personally love the add-on discount and it’s becoming a bigger part of why I like this subscription. Now that I get diapers delivered to my door, I make far fewer Target runs than I have in the past. Honest add-ons make it really easy to make sure I’m stocked up on other diapering products or even just hand soap and other essentials!

1 packs of Honest Overnight Diapers, size 5 – Regularly $13.95/pack ($0.63/diaper), save 22% with subscription

If you read my reviews regularly, you know that I’ve struggled with these overnight diapers in the last couple months. They were amazing at first, then for about 1.5 months straight it seemed like we had leaks every night! I tried sizing up and even tried different brand of overnights and still had issues – so I think the problem had more to do with the normal development of our toddler than the diapers themselves.

We started giving him his nighttime bottle about an hour earlier which has been the biggest help – and in the last two weeks, he is happily dry in the morning. Yay! I’m so happy I can keep using these and don’t have to start finding another brand (and making a separate diaper run to buy them).

5 packs of Honest Diapers, size 5 – Regularly $13.95/pack ($0.55), save 22% with subscription

Honest had some new prints to choose from this month! Subscribers get to select their favorites, but you can’t control how many of each you receive, and they’re always subject to availability. This colorful whale print was too cute to pass up! I wish I would have gotten more than 1 pack, but I’m always happy to get the cute skulls and dinosaurs prints too (those are always available).

Here’s a closer look- the whales have teeny tiny happy faces on them! Our son’s vocabulary is exploding lately, so it’s super fun to point out smiling faces and hear him go “Happy! Happy!”

This is a big stash of diapers and will last me until our next shipment. I usually alternate our deliveries between 5 and 6 weeks, though sometimes at 6 weeks I am on my last handful of diapers when the box arrives, so I’ve cut it close a few times!

Honest_Co_Diapers_January_2017_Wipes

4 pack of Honest Wipes – $18.95 ($4.95 individually)

Once again, nothing has changed about my love for these wipes! They’re perfect in every way: gentle for baby, unscented, with a great thickness and just the right amount of texture. I love these so much that I’d buy them even if I wasn’t a subscriber. I’ve also noticed that even though we have a habit of leaving the top open slightly after diaper change time, these don’t dry out quickly.

I still have quite the overstock, though, so time to give some away or find a place to donate them. This is really my only complaint about this subscription – newborn babies need a TON of wipes, but once you hit toddlerhood you really don’t go through 4 packs/month anymore.

I also got an add-on this month:

Honest_Co_Diapers_January_2017_BubbleBath

Honest Bubble Bath, 12 oz – $11.95 ($8.96 with the add-on discount when you subscribe)

Bath time has been getting out of control lately (read: lots of splashing), so I decided to switch things up with some bubble bath this month to distract my son a bit. This Sweet Orange Vanilla scent smells so good, like a creamsicle! I was worried about him getting this in his eyes at first… but he literally spent his entire bath picking bubbles up and smashing them onto his face and laughing, so I am happy to report these bubbles are kid-tested and definitely “tear-free”. A good squirt made a lot of bubbles and lasted for the whole bath, too, so I’m sure I’ll be picking this up again in the future.

Verdict: For $88.91 this month (bundle price + add-ons), I got $114.60 worth of products at their regular retail prices, delivered right to my door. My verdict is pretty much always the same: Honest is a little more expensive than some other diaper brands, but the quality and convenience are great, and I’ve really liked all of the add-on products I’ve tried so far. My only wish is to be able to swap out baby wipes for literally any other product (or even to ask Honest to donate them on my behalf) because I have at least 8 unopened wipes in our closet after this delivery!

  1. I was able to cancel my Essentials bundle via online chat- maybe that’s something people could try? I had also asked about a bundle that doesn’t come with wipes via online chat. 4 packs is way too much for us. The answer I got was the bundle is still the best deal. I like your idea about swapping out a pack of wipes for something else!

  2. I cancelled via the app last week…no problems!

  3. I would be very interested in this box if there weren’t the issues with cancellation. I am tempted to try since I have a baby coming in just a couple of months but companies who make cancellation difficult really irk me. Hopefully they will fix that issue soon.

    • I feel you, I’m the same way. These issues were some months ago now so they may have gotten better in the meantime, i may try calling customer service just to see how long I’m on hold to report back. I did have to chat them about a return for a different subscription a few months ago, and they responded to their online chat almost instantly!

    • People have complained about waits for customer service but they have an awesome call back feature. You can choose to have them call back instead of waiting. I had an issue with my bundle a few months ago and actually had to call two times. I used this feature and it was great. I called when I was walking out of work and had time to drive home before the called back. No talking and driving and no waiting on the phone.

    • Reporting back! I called this morning to cancel my health & wellness bundle. I was on hold for about 10 minutes around 9 AM Eastern, and I was off the phone within 2 minutes once they picked up.

      I didn’t even know they *had* an app or a call back option, thanks AmieB and Sheryl for the tips!

  4. Have you considered donating the wipes to the local food closet/pantry? Mine always needs baby things. Last week they were in desperate need of number 3 diapers. As a non mom, I didn’t know diapers came in sizes. You could also contact a military veterans association for the name of a volunteer organization that puts together care packages for troops overseas. Those wipes would be invaluable.

    • You could also donate the wipes to a homeless shelter or women’s shelter.

      • I’m looking at local homeless and womens shelters actually! Military care packages are another great idea, I’ll have to see if there are any groups nearby that do that, thank you!
