Whiny Wednesday: The Honest Company

By now you know how (slightly, ok reallllly) obsessed I am with Jessica Alba. She's chic. She's a mom. She's eco-friendly. The girl can do anything in my books! So how freaking excited was I to get the email yesterday that her new project The Honest Company has officially launched. Squeal, moms, squeal!!!!

When I heard about this new company way back when I couldn't wait, wait, wait. To be honest, I've been using Huggies organic diapers because they're the best thing I could find that's out there (I tried Seventh Generation more than once and they leaked on us every, single time! Granted, we are religious users of the wipes at the moment.). But, Huggies doesn't claim any of the amazing features of the Honest diapers (although we have been pretty satisfied with the quality and performance so far): plant-based (no petrochemicals); no added chemicals; chlorine-free, etc, etc. I'm not exactly sure what we're getting, you know what I mean? So I'm really hoping to test out the Honest diapers and wipes soon. (ok, fine, and it does maybe help that you get to pick a cute "pattern" for your girl or boy)

But the company goes beyond just diapers and wipes (which can be delivered to you each month, by the way!). There's shampoo/conditioner; lotion; healing balm; hand soap; bubble bath; body oil; sunscreen (!); hand sanitizer...and get this! Dish soap/detergent; surface cleaner and laundry detergent. If you follow me on Twitter, you'll remember my short (ok, it wasn't short) rant about trying to find chemical-free detergent. I visited a zillion stores (including Whole Foods) to no avail (I actually did end up finding one that has since been discontinued...ugh). So, this made me put on my "happy face," as little C. would say. 

Right now, Honest.com is having a "free trial," which means you only pay the $4.95 in shipping to sample the products. So I'm highly considering this at the moment. (It's around $80 a month for a diaper/wipe bundle.) Cute, non-toxic, convenient and, well, just plain honest! Ms. Alba knows a thing or two about what she's doing, dontcha think? 

P.S. I'll let you know if I decide to try it out - and what I think! You do the same, please? xo

Psst...This just in! My sis just notified me zulily.com has the diapers bundle for just $39.99 and family essentials bundle for just $17.99. Holy, mamacita. It ends Saturday, so you better get to moving!
