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."
The Subscription Box: The Honest Company Diapers & Wipes Bundle
The Cost: $79.95 + tax per bundle
The Products: Each full-size Diapers & Wipes bundle includes 6 packs of Honest Co’s plant based diapers (quantity varies depending on diaper size) and 4 packs of wipes. Both products are free of petrochemicals, chlorine, harsh chemicals and common allergens. You can also add up to 3 additional items to your bundle with the “Add-Ons” feature. Each add-on is 25% off the cost listed online for individual purchase in the Honest Company online store.
Ships to: US, Canada, and APO/FPO addresses. Shipping on purchases and bundles over $50 is free for US deliveries only. See their FAQ for further details and restrictions.
Good to know: There have been some complaints about Honest Company lately, so it's good to keep in mind that you must call to cancel your subscription (you can't cancel online) and consumers have reported being on hold for longer than normal before they're able to talk to a representative. Even though you can't cancel online, you can adjust your shipping calendar dates for your Honest Bundle and customize the contents at any time in your account. If you sign up for the free trial, you will be billed for your first month 7 days after you sign up for the trial.

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 SOME of the diapers (which I opted to try this month). You can also add on extra products for a 25% discount.
2 packs of Honest Overnight Diapers, size 5 - Regularly $13.95/pack ($0.63/diaper), save 22% with subscription
Predictably, as happens when you have a toddler, just when you find something you love and can rely on it, something changes: the day I received this bundle, my little guy started peeing through these every night! For months since I started using Honest Company diapers this has not been an issue and I was so happy to have found an overnight diaper that worked well enough to keep my son dry at night.
I think he might be growing out of them. My 19-month-old is a tall kid but solidly in the middle for weight, and at his last appointment a few weeks ago he weighed 28 pounds. The size 5 honest diapers say "27+" for their size but, I think we need to start sizing up next month. That extra half a pound apparently makes a big difference, because last month this fit perfectly!
3 packs of Honest Diapers, size 2, "Election Diaper" and "Tropical Frogs" prints - Regularly $13.95/pack ($0.35/diaper for size 2), save 22% with subscription
Thankfully it's really easy to update bundle sizes. I also learned from a commenter on a previous review that you can swap sizes on just SOME packages of diapers, not the whole box! I imagine that is intended for when your kid is growing out of a size, especially in those crazy first few months.
This month, I used it to get a quick last minute baby shower gift, and replaced two of my Size 5 diapers with Size 2 instead! I usually buy size 1 or 2 when giving diapers to a new mom, since they can sometimes get overwhelmed with Newborn sizes and babies grow so fast.
I got the "Election Diaper" in my shipment last month, but "Tropical Frogs" was new to me. I love this design - the frogs are really a bright and colorful but unexpected pattern that would be great for boys or girls.
2 packs of Honest Diapers, size 5, "Skulls" and "T-Rex" print - Regularly $13.95/pack ($0.56/diaper), save 22% with subscription
Once again, I missed out on the fun seasonal selections - my bundle shipped just a day or so before the holiday designs were announced! I am hoping I can get a few of these in my December bundle:
How cute! I love the cars with trees, but also how simple and fun the candy stripe pattern is!
But, the T-Rex design was new for me this month, and I love it! My son just learned to imitate a roar so these are perfect right now. He's showing an interest in the animals on his clothing, too, so he seemed to like them just as much as me.
4 pack of Honest Wipes - $18.95 ($4.95 individually)
Last month I gave away all 4 packs of wipes to my sister in law, who has a newborn because I had 8 unopened packs on hand! I'm back on track this month so I don't feel so overwhelmed, but I do wish Honest would let subscribers swap wipes for other products.
Happy to report that nothing has changed about my love for these wipes! They're perfect in every way: seemingly gentle for baby, unscented, with a great thickness and just the right amount of texture.
I also got an add-on this month:
Honest Diaper Rash Cream, 2.5 oz size - $9.95 ($7.46 with the add-on discount when you subscribe)
Once again, I knew my bundle was shipping and we were almost out of diaper cream, so I tossed this in! I was a little surprised that it's a 2.5 oz tube for the $9.95 retail price - that is so much smaller than the last tube of Desitin that I bought, which is 4 oz and cost about half as much!
We haven't had a reason to use it yet, but I opened it to get an idea of how it was different. It's not as thick as Desitin, but thicker than the Target brand diaper cream (which I've found to be way too runny). It also has a really pleasant herbal essential oil scent. The ingredients include sunflower, castor, olive, coconut, grapeseed, jojoba, and clary sage oils. I'm not sure, but I think most of the scent is the jojoba and clary sage. I'm pleasantly surprised by this new twist on an old product, and I'll be happy to report back on how it works once we actually use it.
Honest Tote Bag - $8?
This month, I also got the free subscriber tote from October's offer! They don't sell this online so I'm guessing at the value, but it's a nice sturdy no-frills canvas bag. This is a nice big tote, big enough to fit 4-5 packages of diapers. The bright blue ink on the inside of the shipping box did rub off on this a little bit, unfortunately, but I plan on using it to pack up my baby shower gift.
Verdict: For $87.41 this month (bundle price + add-ons), I got $118.11 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 excellent, the prints are fun, and I've found the formulations of the products I've used to be excellent so far. I was happy to learn that I can customize my subscription to include different sizes, and I'm always pleased with my add-on products too.
