Honest Company Mother’s Day Gift Set Review

Honest Company Mother's Day Gift Set

The Honest Company recently launched a Limited Edition Mother's Day Gift Set and as a lover of all things Honest Company, I immediately bought it for myself. (Don't worry - I bought one for my mom as a Mother's Day gift too!)

The good news about this box is that even though it's called the Mother's Day Gift Set - it doesn't say Mother's Day anywhere on it. It's just wrapped up perfectly to gift for Mother's Day or any other occasion!

Honest Company Mother's Day Gift Set Review Items

The Box: Honest Company Limited Edition Mother’s Day Gift Set

The Cost: $49.95

The Products: A signed copy of The Honest Life by Jessica Alba, Lavender Vanilla Soy Candle, Sea Salt & Sugar Body Scrub, Lip Shimmer, Organic Body Oil. 

Honest Company Mother's Day Gift Set Review Box

The gift set comes in a very well-made wooden box (crafted from sustainable paulownia wood).

Honest Company Mother's Day Gift Set Review Candle

Organic Body Oil - Value $9.95

Aromatic Soy Candle in Lavender Vanilla - Value $19.95

I already knew that I loved both of these items, but I was excited to try the candle in this exclusive lavender vanilla scent! (If you haven't tried the body oil before it's a very lightweight oil and absorbs quickly - no greasy skin!)

Honest Company Mother's Day Gift Set Review Lip Shimmer

Honest Lip Shimmer in Pomegranate - Value $6.95?

I'm guessing on the cost of this lip shimmer since it's exclusive to this gift set - you can't buy it from Honest.com. (I really hope the fact that they made lip shimmer even just for this box means that there will be Honest beauty items in the future!)

I like this lip shimmer a lot - it's not really shimmery at all, but adds a nice hint of color and the pomegranate flavor is great too. It's not super moisturizing (I'm a little obsessed with the Alima Pure Lip Tint right now, so nothing compares it's moisturizing powers!)

Honest Company Mother's Day Gift Set Review Scrub

Honest Sea Salt & Sugar Body Scrub - Value $15.95?

This is another exclusive item, so I'm again guessing on the value. I think this is my favorite product discovery in the box. They somehow crafted a scrub formula that meets all of my very specific tastes when it comes to body scrubs - the grains are fine, but not too fine, the oil leaves skin moisturized but not too oily, and the scent is very subtle and clean. I'm seriously considering buying more boxes so I can stock up on this scrub! (Hopefully they start carrying it in the Honest shop soon!)

Honest Company Mother's Day Gift Set Review Signed Book

The Honest Life - Value $22.95

I think The Honest Life is a great book, and makes this a great introduction gift set. And it's just so cool that it is signed by Jessica Alba! (Maybe the value should be higher than $22.95?)

Verdict: I paid $50 for this box and received over $75 worth of Honest Company products - and that's not including the value of the wooden box, which I will definitely use for storage! I'm very happy with the value and presentation of this box, and I plan on buying a few more for gifts!

Did you get a Mother's Day Gift Set? What was your favorite product?

I ordered this earlier in the week and it’s supposed to arrive tomorrow, I can’t wait! I already have the book and body oil at home, but I’m thinking I’ll keep the signed one and give my original copy to someone else. Im really hoping they make the scrub part of the permanent line of products. My favorite scrub is from LUSH but it’s $35 for a pot (although it lasts a very long time). What a great gift for others! Maybe I’ll have to order an extra one for someone else (or me!). 🙂 thanks for the great review and photos.

I love the honest company! I didn’t get this box (maybe I will now). But I get all their cleaning supplies and love them.
I love my alima lip tint too. I’m from Portland and have been using alima make up for a while. Love them!
Is the honest lip tint flavored or just scented? Just curious because I don’t like flavored lip products but scented is ok 🙂
And love your blog 🙂

My box arrived yesterday and I love it. The body scrub is heavenly and I think the candle has a very calming and fresh smell. Not heavy at all. I am going to buy a few more for gifts as well and maybe another one for me. I do hope that they add all these products to their store. Very happy with everything.

I’m so glad you loved it too! (Sometimes I worry that I rave too much about Honest Company products!)
