I was offered a chance to try a bundle for review purposes. In addition to the Essentials Bundle, I was also able to choose a full size product.

For my full size product, I selected the Honest 4 in 1 Laundry Pods. The 50-pod pack retails for $15.95, but can be bundled into a monthly Essentials Bundle subscription for $39.95, for 5 full sized products. These pods left my clothes clean and smelling fresh, without the need for fabric softener or dryer sheets.

The Essentials Bundle free trial included travel size versions of their top selling products. It is also sold as a "Discovery Set" for $13.95. The set includes:

Organic Healing Balm - All natural, certified organic oils + extracts + beeswax = the BEST balm ever! Super versatile & safe to use on diaper rash, irritated skin, eczema, minor cuts & scrapes & much more! Full size 3oz, $12.95
I didn't like this one. It felt like petroleum jelly to me. It might be good for burns or cuts, but for everyday use I'm not a fan.

Honest Hand Soap - Naturally refresh & cleanse your hands with pure plant-based ingredients - perfect for the whole family! Available in lavender, lemongrass, or mandarin. Full size 12oz, $4.95
Soap goes down the drain into our water systems, so non-toxic products are important. I'd like to try the mandarin scent next.

Honest Face + Body Lotion - Organic olive, shea, jojoba & safflower oils hydrate & restore skin’s natural moisture balance. Chamomile, calendula & aloe protect & soothe. Perfect for all skin types – sensitive, dry & allergy-prone. Full size 8.5oz, $9.95
This lotion is supposed to be unscented, but it smelled somewhat sour to me. Almost like a vinegar smell. I'm not sure if that's normal. I liked the texture, but the scent turned me off. I wouldn't buy it again.

Honest Multi-Surface Cleaner - Advanced plant-based formula tackles dirt, grease, and grime anywhere, anytime! Super versatile and ultra effective - leaving nothing behind but the fresh smell of grapefruit. Full size 26oz spray bottle, $5.95
I loved this all-purpose cleaner. It smells great, with no harsh chemical fumes. When I sprayed it, I didn't feel like I was inhaling toxins, as with some cleaners I have used in the past.

Honest Shampoo + Body Wash - A delightfully tear-free, plant-based cleanser perfect for the whole family – honestly clean & extremely satisfying!  Full size 8.5oz, $9.95
I liked this as a body wash. As a shampoo, it didn't do much for my hair. It has a nice subtle scent that I think is a cross between citrus and vanilla. I would buy this again.

If safe, natural, non-toxic household and body products are important to you, you may want to check out The Honest Company.  When  you sign up for the recurring Honest Essentials Bundle, you can choose 5 full size products each month from the Bath & Body and Cleaning categories. Your bundle is completely customizable. You can select when your bundle ships and how often. I ordered one at the end of September, then changed the date for my next bundle to ship at the end of November. With every order, you can select 5 new products, or stick with your favourites. It's totally up to you. I'm curious to try their new Soy Candles and Air + Fabric Freshener. As an added bonus, you can add up to 3 additional products to your order at 25% off! Shipping is $5.95 per order, plus $8.95 international surcharge. If your order is more than $50, the $5.95 fee is waived. Honest ships via UPS and thus far, I haven't had to pay any tax or duties upon delivery.

  1. Not something I've heard or will be interested in trying. It was great to see a review and unboxing of it though.
