Honest Beauty is a brand new brand and subscription from the Honest Company. I could not wait to sign up for this subscription!
To start with, you can do a free trial box, and just pay $5.95 shipping to sample 3 skincare items and get a makeup bag too. (This review is of the trial kit for Oily Skin - they also have dry and combo skin options).

You have 7 days after receiving your trial to cancel for any reason before you are automatically enrolled into our monthly beauty subscription.
The Products: Skincare and makeup products made with the same ingredient-conscious formulations we’ve seen from The Honest Company

Makeup Bag - Value $5?
I love this little makeup bag! The outside is made with vegan leather, and the inside has a matching floral lining:
(Materials are BPA and PVC free).
Now on to the skincare samples:
Honest Beauty Beyond Protected Oil Free Daily Beauty Fluid - 10 ml Value $6.20
This beauty fluid (sunscreen) has a thicker consistency than the moisturizer, and takes a few seconds to rub in, but it has a non-greasy finish. I like the subtle scent too.
Honest Beauty Dependably Clear Oil Free Moisturizer - 5 ml Value $2.20
This moisturizer is a lightweight formula (absorbs quickly), with a natural earthy scent. The scent is pretty light too, so it didn't bother me (not my favorite natural scent though). I like how this left my skin - moisturized but not oily/greasy feeling at all. I'll get this in full-size for my upcoming Honest Beauty bundle.
Honest Beauty Refreshingly Clean Gel Cleanser - 30 ml Value $3.60
(This is the one beauty product that comes in all trial kits). It's pretty hard to disappoint me with a cleanser, and this one was good in my book. It's a foaming cleanser that doesn't dry out your skin, and of all the products sampled, this one is my favorite scent!
Verdict: This sample kit has a value of about $17. (Or $12 if you don't count the $5 value I assigned to the makeup bag). I think it's a great way to try out their skincare line, and I hope they launch a makeup sampling version soon too.
Of all the items I sampled, I will definitely get the moisturizer and gel cleanser in full-size. I like the Daily Beauty Fluid, but typically I don't apply a sunscreen everyday because my primer and/or BB Cream already has it built in, so I'm not sure I need that step.
What do you think of Honest Beauty? Have you sampled their skincare products yet?
