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).

one of the better healing balms out there

anyone with a little one knows about eczema...and how hard it is to find just the right balm for the right skin problem. the honest healing balm works on just about anything. it is scent free and pretty thick so it doesn't take much and lasts a long time. some of the honest products are hit or miss. the balm is an absolute knock out...

Does the trick but a bit greasy

In the winter I have terribly cracked hands. This lotion certainly did the trick and helped my bleedy knuckles but left my hands feeling a bit greasy for a bit after application.

Love for my princess with allergies

My daughter has many food allergies as well as a monthly set of hives and eczema. I use this cream on her when her eczema is acting up and it really helps with the flaky and itchiness. Although this product is geared toward winter wellness it is perfect for someone who itches at the sight of detergent. Great product super effective and gentle!

Balm

I only received a sample of the balm, not every product in this kit. It is ok, leaves your hands a little greasy, but does a good job locking in moisture.

greasy!

I found this to be very greasy and will not continue use. Perhaps it would work well if you apply before going to sleep, however it is not something you can use comfortably while performing everyday tasks/working.

Great for cuticles!

This healing balm feels great on your hands and is so moisturizing. I keep it on my desk at work and use it daily. I would definitely recommend this for anyone with dry skin. I also love putting it on my elbows and knees. Soft and smooth skin afterward!

Healing Salve really is great

I only received the healing salve in my box which was actually, for me, the most anticipated of the trio. The timing was perfect because the day after my Birchbox arrived my daughter cut her eye. I was out of my usual salve and remembered that I had the Honest Company's to try. It went on so smooth and was not at all oily and messy like some of the others. We put it on regularly for about three days and the size and appearance of her cut really seemed to heal quite a bit faster than when our other brand. I am happy the sample size was so big because there is plenty left for another cut. Us moms know they are always happening.

Purchased

i would highly recommend the honest company products. This was a rough winter on the skin. No matter how many times i washed my hands they did get dried out and they smelled amazing from the soap. I have extremely sensitive skin this the first winter i didnt have issues with dry hands the healing balm works wonders. I leave one hand hand sanitizer in my car and one in my purse. it is light weight smells great not light alcohol and is non drying.
