Honest Company essentials (free trial): 

All-Purpose Balm

Face + Body Lotion (fragrance free)

Hand Soap (Lavender)

Multi-Surface Cleaner 

(missing) Shampoo + Body Wash (Sweet Orange Vanilla) 

Above are the Honest Company essentials full size products, not sample size. If you want sample sizes of the products you can get them from Nordstrom as the ‘Discovery’ Gift Set or the free trial from the Honest Company website. These products I am showing and reviewing came from the free trial on their website, which I purchased for about six dollars for shipping. 

I’d like to give a separate review of each product from the Honest Company essential bundle free trial as always since it’ll better explain which ones are my favorites and which ones I may not rave so much about. I was genuinely astonished by how amazing most of the products were. I’m a massive fan of Jessica Alba now more than ever after she’s standing for such a good cause. I read her recent book called ‘Living Naturally and True to You’ and gained even more inspiration to live more like her, due to the overall benefits. She is one of my natural beauty icons for sure! But, that doesn’t mean I’m instantly going to fall in love with her beauty and personal care items, as I want products that I’m happy using because they make me feel good and look good. Luckily, most of the products I have tried to so far have been really great! Some even above my expectations! 

P.S. If you didn’t already know, Jessica Alba tries to include healthier and better ingredients in her products, leaving out harmful chemicals! Yeeeeeees! My blog will continue to display amazing beauty products that live up to this idea! I may have a few ‘guilty pleasure’ beauty products that do not follow these standards, but I will let you know in the posts how clean they are. 

All-Purpose Balm

I love the concept of an all in one beauty balm used for rough skin, lips, etc. This one smells like something you can eat and devour; a treat with brown sugar (although it isn’t meant to be eaten and I didn’t eat it either… I know what you’re thinking! Haha!). It’s got a lovely sweet smell and the texture is exactly what I’d imagine a balm to be. I’m not the biggest fan of the all in one balm as I wish I could use it as lotion, but the texture is too thick. 4/5 — These ratings are based on my personal opinion. 

Face + Body Lotion (fragrance free)

I noticed online how there are different fragrances to this one. Wish I would’ve tried another one, as I’d use it more often if it had a nice smell. The consistency of this product was a little odd, it was white and spread pasty until it sunk into the skin. I didn’t mind it, but you may or may not. I quite liked this product and used it up too fast to give a better review. It’s lightweight on the face, which is a MUST for me. I can’t stand greasy feeling face lotions since I have oily prone skin. I want to purchase this again as a body lotion with a fragrance! 4/5

Hand Soap (Lavender)

Hand soap, is well… hand soap. I definitely like this one as it contains less ingredients and gets the job done. Washes hands and smells slightly of lavender, which is calming. 5/5

Multi-Surface Cleaner 

It appears that most of her fragranced products smell delightful! All of the scented ones smell amazing and I’m surprised as most natural products smell somewhat earthy. Which isn’t bad, but it’s more of an acquired smell over the sweet and light scents that the Honest Company creates. This one is a plant based cleaner smelling of white grapefruit. Delicious! I like using this to clean my electric toothbrush stand once a week as it’s gentle and the thought of it possibly getting near my mouth doesn’t scare me. 4/5

(missing) Shampoo + Body Wash (Sweet Orange Vanilla) 

Totally my favorite product from the trial! I accidentally threw away the sample size as I used it up so quickly. I actually purchased a two pack of this at Costco last week and was overly happy for a body wash! Once again, the smell is subtle yet incredible! It reminds me of a creamsicle, need I say more?! It’s not over drying like castile soap as it moisturizes a bit with coconut. I don’t prefer using it as shampoo though, but it’s a nice option! I have used it as a face cleanser in the shower and it removes my makeup too! Even my tough to remove mascara! Versatile products are a must for an aspiring minimalist like me. 5/5

Oh, I quickly wanted to mention the packaging. It’s cute, but I like the Honest Beauty packaging so much better. I think the Honest Beauty packaging is one of my favorite natural beauty product packaging I’ve ever seen! 

So, you may be asking if the Honest Company essentials bundle in full size products is worth it? I say YES for those of you looking for a consistent supply of natural personal care products as I think they arrive monthly by mail. But, I also say yes again, by purchasing what you need separately as some of you may not need all of the products coming to your door that frequently. I fit under the later as I am the only one to account for, but in the future when I have a family I would love to consider the subscription service as I’d imagine it’d be ideal. 

I did a post on the Pros and Cons of the Honest Beauty free trial, but I want to try more of Alba’s newer products especially the lip crayons! So keep your eyes out for a post on more Honest Beauty products because you can bet I’ll be buying more.
