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).

healing ointment is excellent
Sampled

I loved the healing balm that came in my Birchbox. Has so many uses- use it on my hands, as a cuticle treatment before bed, and on dry lips. No heavy scent; not too greasy. Purchased full size from a local store when I saw it while out shopping. Like that product is natural, and gentle enough to even put on my children's skin.

good balm for dry/cracked hands
Sampled

I received this as a sample in my monthly box. I thought this balm did a great job of moisturizing/healing cracked, dried hands. Unlike some lotions/balms, I don't think it left my hands/skin greasy, but nice and soft. I used it in the winter as a go-to lotion in my purse.

Healing Balm
Sampled

I actually still have and use my sample of Honest's Healing Balm. I love its earthy scent and its consistency is not terribly sticky. It's perfect to moisturize any chafing, dry problem areas.

Too greasy
Sampled

I used the healing balm and found the product just too greasy. It leaves my hands shiny and slick and it just doesn't rub in well. I just didn't like the feeling it left.

Healing Balm

The Healing Balm is great. The sudden cold weather has done a number on my skin. I have used this on my lips and on some dry skin patches on my face and has helped a ton without clogging pores. This is something that could have a ton of uses!

Love Honest Company

No babies at home but I am sweet on this packaging, the minimal scent and the company's mantra. These products could be for everyone.

Love, Love, Love (Honestly)

If you have not tried any of the Honest Company products yet, stop and order this set! I promise you will not be disappointed. The healing balm has so many uses - for your babies, for winter skin, for skin abrasions...I literally use this as a multi-use balm. The hand sanitizer is also a knock out. The light scent is refreshing and crisp (it does not linger), it does not dry your skin out and a little goes a long way. I have one at my office, one at home and one in my purse.

Great for Treating Really Dry, Flaky Skin
Sampled

I used the healing balm on my new baby when he broke out with a typical case of infant acne. The product is a little greasy, but it worked wonders and since I was using it on the little guy's face it's great to know its organic and safe.

Lovely!

I received the healing balm lotion and this made my skin so soft. I questioned it at first because it goes on kind of greasy, but it soaks in quickly and works wonders on dry, chapped skin.
