The Honest Company was co-founded by actress and health nut Jessica Alba, who realized the need for safer skincare options when she had children of her own.

The Honest Company

Birchbox Breakdown

There are times when honesty is not the best policy. Case in point: You ask your BFF if that new romper you’re wearing makes you look like an overgrown baby, and she falls to the ground laughing. But when it comes to skincare, honesty is paramount. And it doesn’t get more transparent than The Honest Company’s biodegradable, all-natural line, full of ingredients you can trust. Ideal for sensitive skin, this three-part kit has everything you need to stay well-hydrated, comfortable, and worry-free all winter long.

How it Works

Formulated with gentle-as-a-lamb ingredients, these products will never leave your skin high and dry. In the anytime, anywhere honest healing balm, chamomile, calendula, and lavender sooth irritated and chapped skin while shea butter and organic plant oils provide head-to-toe moisture. The lavender hand soap gently refreshes hands with soothing essential oils and grapefruit seed botanical extracts. And for the onslaught of cold season, there’s the aloe-infused hand sanitizer spray, which kills 99.9% of pesky germs and comes in a travel-friendly 2-pack. Like all Honest Company products, these come to you free of petroleum, mineral oil, lanolin, gluten, parabens, phthalates, fragrances, dyes, and most common allergens.

How to Use

Massage a generous amount of the balm into skin. It’s so safe and gentle, you can use it to heal anything from windburn to eczema to minor nicks and cuts. Keep a bottle of the liquid hand soap at the ready near your bathroom or kitchen sink, and deploy the hand sanitizer whenever you need a quick cleansing (or shake hands with a sneezing person).

Not for me

The healing balm was a little greasy for my taste. It is not something I could have used through the day, I put it on at night before going to bed so I wouldnt touch anything.

I received a sample in my birch box a few months ago and I loved it! I've been wanting to try Honest products for a while. I will be purchasing more!

This stuff really gets in there and provides tons of moisture. I love putting it on before bed and letting it soak in.

Healing balm heals, but not quickly
Sampled

The Honest Company healing balm worked, but not as quickly as I would've liked or anticipated. My skin was extremely dry this past winter and I'd heard awesome things about Jessica Alba's skincare line, so I was hopeful it would help moisturize my parched skin. The consistency of the balm was thick and almost like vaseline. I truly thought it would instantly absorb into my dry skin and make me less itchy, but it took about week of application for me to see any results.

The balm smelled nice and did help my dry hands during the winter. I would have liked this product better if it had not felt so thick on my skin and took so long to absorb.

The Honest Company has the best products

I have been using Honest products for awhile and will not go back to other brands. The healing balm has a thick odd feeling texture but works great on dry skin and diaper rash. I like the hand soap but the foaming one is the way to go. The shampoo and conditioner has done wonders for my thin dull lifeless hair. It now looks and feels full and shiny and there is almost none falling out or breaking off! I recommend everyone to give them a try.

huge fan

i can not recommend this line more. it cleans really well and it's pet friendly. i tried their floor cleaner and it was nice to not have to chase the dogs away so that they don't get chemicals on their feet. i never realized how itchy i got using regular laundry soap until i switched to honest soap. i washed a load at my mom's and regretted using her big name (shall remain nameless) detergent. i tell everyone about this brand.

I love how fast it moisturizes my dry/chapped skin. It smells nice and is made of natural products which is a big plus. I do wish it absorbed quicker.

I used the hand soap the most, but didn't care for the hand sanitizer or to be honest, the lotion. The lotion was too thick, and I always forgot to use the sanitizer...smell wasn't for me.
