Shortly after Lucas was born, I started to become much more aware of the products that we used in our house. Then once he became mobile, I felt that it was so extremely important that we reevaluated our cleaning supplies, and the products we used with him, to ensure that he was surrounded by things that were safe.
And it was probably around that time that I discovered The Honest Co. I remember I first tried out the company by ordering some of their Stain Remover. I was shocked at how well it worked on removing the coffee I spilled in the living room at our old house (whoops), and I loved that I didn’t have to worry about Lucas crawling or rolling around near where it was sprayed.
After that first order, I was hooked, and I loved it so much that I wound up stocking our cabinets with much more than stain remover. In fact, a couple of my current favorites would include their Glass & Window Cleaner, their Bathroom Cleaner, their Multi Surface Cleaner (which I just recently ran out of but, luckily, have this little trial sized one to last me until I restock!).
Oh, and I certainly can’t forget their Fruit & Veggie Wash. I always used to just rinse my produce before Lucas was around, but these days, I always have this stuff on hand. I’m pretty sure I’ve ordered this at least 3-4 different times!
Oh yeah, and actually, I should also mention my love for their Shampoo & Body Wash. We’ve been using it on Lucas for quite some time now, and it’s definitely a tubby time favorite.
FYI: It’s worth mentioning again that all of the products listed above were bought with my own money, and I have continued to re-order because I love them that much!
The Honest Co. was created as a solution to find the perfect products for the family and household– which are effective, safe, beautiful, convenient, and affordable– something everyone should have. Plus, the fact that the company founder is Jay’s celebrity crush, Jessica Alba, makes him love their products even more. Men.
The cleaning products are probably my favorite of all. They’re made with advanced plant-based cleaning, they’re ultra versatile, they’re safe for our family and home, and more importantly, they actually WORK.
And an even greater fun fact? Your purchase helps fund health education and gives products free of harsh chemicals to schools and childcare centers. I’m always game for anything that helps education and children.
So recently, I had the opportunity to try out some new-to-me products from The Honest Co. in one of their bundles, and I wanted to share my honest thoughts with all of you!
First, let’s talk bundles. The Honest Co. has a number of different bundles you can subscribe to, as a convenient and worry-free way to make sure that you’re always stocked with your favorite Honest products. You choose the products you need (and want) and decide how often they ship – directly to your doorstep.
And even better? You get to enjoy a significant discount when you Bundle versus ordering items individually (up to 40%), and you pay only when your Bundle has shipped. You can cancel at any time! Honest’s goal is to provide you with a little relief by delivering the best family essentials to your doorstep– to simplify your life and bring more delight to every day.

I opted to choose some items from their essentials bundle. Okay, so the fruit + veggie wash wasn’t new to me…buuuut I was sure excited to see another bottle of that because we go through it quickly over here! Just spray on your produce, let sit for a minute or two, them rub gently and rinse.
The next product I tried out was their Air & Fabric Refresher in lavender vanilla.
The scent of the freshener didn’t linger too long, and the scent wasn’t too overpowering the way some fresheners can be. I will say that I don’t think the lavender vanilla scent was my favorite (I’m not huge on sweeter, vanilla candles or air fresheners), but I was impressed with the way the product worked and I’d love to try out the freshener in their lemon verbena or orange cypress scents!
Personal care items are something that I’m slowly trying to reevaluate for our family, especially for myself. It’ll take some time, since I use a number of products that likely aren’t deemed “safe,” but any progress is good progress, if you ask me. The Honest Co. personal care items are plant-based, hypoallergenic, gentle, and safe. And it’s so true what they say…what goes ON your body is just as important as what goes IN!
The organic healing balm has been wonderful on my hands, which are already starting to get dry from the cooler weather. I keep it on my nightstand and have been applying every evening before bed. The scent is super calming, with Chamomile and calendula, and the Tamanu oil helps restore and balance skin moisture. Bonus? It can also be used on kids/infants, to help sooth irritations.
The face + body lotion has been wonderful on Lucas’s skin. We slather it on after tubby time, and not only do we love the calming scent, but it really does seem to be helping his dry skin (especially on his legs).
Finally, the last product I tried was their Wet Mopping Pads.
Since we moved into our new house, we’ve really only swept and vacuumed the hardwood floors because I’d been meaning to look around for good, quality products I could use and trust on them. I researched a little bit on cleaners for our hardwood floors, but I was never able to commit to the purchase because they all seemed to have chemicals/ingredients that I didn’t love. Considering Lucas slides around on our floors day in and day out, I want to make sure they’re being cleaned with something safe.
Not only are the wet mopping pads made with ingredients I felt okay with, but I was more than pleased to see their results. Our floors were shining again just like they were when we first moved in!
Granted, it lasted for all of about an hour…if that…but you get my drift.
Overall, I was really impressed with the new-to-me products, and I will continue to be a loyal customer of The Honest Co.!
