The Honest Company II

You may have read my previous post reviewing some products from The Honest Company. Well, I’ve invested again in a much larger and more diverse group of goodies!

In my first review of The Honest Company I covered how I felt about their healing balm, multi-surface cleaner, lotion, diapers and shampoo + body wash. Since then I have continued using the surface cleaner at my office and the shampoo + body wash on the children and on my own hair.


The products that I invested in this time around include:

Conditioner (Perfectly Gentle – Sweet Orange and Vanilla) 
Face + Body Lotion (Perfectly Gentle – Sweet Orange and Vanilla)
Hand Soap (Lemongrass)
Deodorant (Lavender and Vanilla) 
Organic Tampons
Dish Soap (Lemon Verbena)
Dishwasher Detergent

There are only hearts next to the things I can stand behind 100% and the only reason that it’s limited to three items right now is because I haven’t had the chance to try everything out just yet. Although, I’m chomping at the bit to give everything a go.

DEODORANT: When it comes to personal care I haven’t used deodorant on a daily basis in a very long time, mostly for the fact that it’s been linked to an increase risk of breast cancer. Plus I don’t tend to sweat a lot. Now that’s changed thanks to The Honest Company’s deodorant which is “made without: aluminum, zinc salts, propylene glycol, butylene glycol, parabens, phthalates, fragrances, triclosan, talc, steareth-n, silica, silicones, dyes, or most common allergens.” Their Lavender and Vanilla Deodorant doesn’t just smell lovely, the ingredients in it have also completely gotten rid of the uneven skin tone and the razor bumps that I normally got from shaving my armpits. That’s a win, win, win. ♥ ♥ 

CONDITIONER: I actually ditched hair conditioner a while back when I switched from mainstream shampoo to The Honest Company’s Shampoo + Body Wash. It removed the stiff feeling from my hair and I actually noticed some of what I call “baby hairs” on my head growing into full length strands of hair. I don’t know if it’s coincidence or what but my hair is 100x healthier since I switched to their shampoo. I thought my hair couldn’t be any softer and I am happy to say that I was wrong. After I started using The Honest Company’s Conditioner there are no more knots in my hair when I get out of the shower and my locks feel silkier than ever. I’m head over heels for this stuff!   

FACE + BODY LOTION: Since I’m being honest… I actually bought this for my kids. I threw away all of our Johnson company baby soaps, powders and lotions some time ago and I was relying solely on the wonderfulness of The Honest Company Shampoo + Body Wash for all washing and moisturizing needs for the boys. Knowing that Baby A would be born with extra gentle skin, I decided to invest in some lotion that I can trust and that’s why I bought this. Of course I had to use a little bit and then a little bit more and some more after that. I’ve since made a habit of putting it on Baby J, Baby M, and myself pretty routinely.   


As for the rest of the things that I bought, I plan on using up what’s left of the things that I have before I totally ditch my old brands for good. I have given a sniff test to the hand soap and dish soap and they smell absolutely wonderful. The dish soap promises “extra suds” so I can only imagine that it works the same wonders as the body wash, which I can use very little of and achieve wonderful things. As for the dishwasher detergent, as long as my cups are streak free I will be a happy camper.


When it comes to the Organic Tampons, I probably won’t be posting any kind of review for them, but here’s what I can tell you. A study was done not that long ago that proved there were carcinogenic herbicides in 80% of all tampons tested. Which means, whenever your body is already punishing you for being a woman and you plug up, you’re raising your risk of different cancers. That’s not fair! After I learned this, I searched a number of times for a substitute product and that’s when I discovered that The Honest Company offers one. I trust this company very much and I’m excited that this is something they sell. That being said, the price is a lot different than what I bought before. $7.00 for sixteen tampons VS. $7.00 for forty tampons. Personally, I would rather pay more for my tampons and get peace of mind with them than pay less and possibly suffer the consequences.


If you have any questions about any of these amazing products leave it for me in the comments section below. Don’t forget that The Honest Company offers free trials on a lot of their products, they also have Gift Bundles and diaper cakes!
