I really can’t state enough times how much I love The Honest Company. My essentials bundle came today. I always add my 3 discounted items onto the bundle. So, I get 8 items every month. This was my second Essentials Bundle and I got the Essentials sample pack before that. I’ve tried a good many of their products so far and I’m getting more new products again next month. I will eventually write a review of all the products I have tried. Unfortunately, there are some products I can’t test out. I don’t have a baby. So, I can’t test out the diapers, training pants, swim pants or any of the baby gear. I have tried the healing balm (which is basically a diaper rash cream) and I will try the wipes and the belly and nipple balm (I use baby wipes for lots of things and the belly balm is basically a deep moisturizer and the nipple balm seems to be basically a food grade all natural neosporin which will make it perfect for injuries on our dogs). Other products I can’t try right now but will hopefully be able to soon are the dishwasher packs, laundry pods, oxy boost, auto dishewasher gel and rinse aid. Our washing machine barely works right now. It won’t dissolve the packs. And our dishwasher doesn’t work at all. Everything else I intend to try eventually and I will write up my review post once I’ve tried a few more of the products.
As for this month in my essentials bundle I got: Honest Shampoo + Body Wash. Honest Conditioner, Honest Healing Balm, Honest Body Oil, Honest Conditioning Mist, Honest Bathroom Cleaner, Honest Stain Remover and the Honest Organic Lip Balm Trio.
I always put the most expensive items in my main 5 item bundle. Then add the cheapest three as add ons. This gets me the cheapest deal.
I actually wasn’t out of shampoo and conditioner but since this is the only shampoo, body wash and conditioner that I can use without getting itchy I didn’t want to risk running out. I probably won’t get them again next month, though. I think I’ll be ok to skip a month on getting them.
I love the scent of the shampoo + body wash and conditioner. It smells like orange creamsicles. The conditioning mist and one of the lipbalms smell the same. I put the lip balm on time I opened the box. I love it. Much more glossy than chapstick but not so glossy that it doesn’t last. And it smells amazing. I haven’t tried the other lipbalms yet. And I haven’t used the conditioning mist. I’ll use it (and the body oil which I also had never had before) after I shower in an hour or so.
My new items this month were the Honest Body Oil, Honest Lip Balm, Honest Conditioning Mist and Honest Bathroom Cleaner. Since I just opened the box I haven’t tried them all yet. Everything smells awesome though (except the body oil..it doesn’t really have a scent).
My current plan for my next months bundle is: Organic Nipple Balm, Organic Belly Balm, Honest Bubble Bath, Honest Multi-Surface Cleaner, Honest Glass + Window Cleaner, Honest Floor Cleaner, Honest Stain Remover and Honest Wipes. That may change though. I tend to go through the stain remover fast but if my dog gets out of her peeing on the carpet I may not need it next month. So, it may change to something else. If the Canvas Tote becomes available again (its been out of stock ever since i’ve been subscribed) then I’ll take something off to add it as one of my +3 items.
I look forward to these boxes every month. After I’ve tried everything then I’ll just order what I need every month but for right now I get really excited to try the new items each time a box comes. 🙂
If you would like to try out The Honest Company this is my referral link. I’d greatly appreciate you using it as it would save me money on my next subscription box. And any saved money is always a great help for me.
