Another subscription service?

It seems like the last few years has brought more and more subscription services to the world. I was unsure of many of these as they seems to be on the expensive side and I just didn’t understand paying for something to be shipped to me on a schedule when I go to the grocery store every week any way.
Well let me tell you I have certainly changed my mind on that idea. There are some subscription services that are truly worth it and many are very comparable pricing. I really love being able to automate some of those purchase once in a while items like shampoo and body wash. I have actually forgotten to pick up some of these toiletry items since I am just not used to going to those aisles of the store often enough.

One of the brands that I tested out a few month back has really become a favorite and it honestly is easiest to get it direct from them in their subscription service. I picked up two of their sample kits to test out the products. I really liked most of what they sent, some of the Home Essentials bundle items sent were just not things I use.


There were five items in the Essentials bundle.

  • Face and Body Lotion
  • Hand Soap
  • Body Wash
  • Multi-Surface Spray
  • Healing Balm


I really loved the body wash and the hand soap. I actually adjusted the shipment of my first full bundle to be mostly body wash and lotions. I fell in love with the Sweet Orange Vanilla scent and wanted to try the others. The Face and body lotion I received was unscented but I really liked how well it absorbed in. I first thought it seemed like it may be too thin of a mixture but I was really surprised as it absorbed how smooth my skin felt. My skin was hydrated and not overly slippery. One application lasted the whole day.

The last two items I wasn’t jumping on to pick up more just yet but it was simply my own preference of product. I am really not a balm girl, I had a hard time with this product just because of the nature of balms. As for the spray I actually really liked it but the sample was going to last me a while since I use Norwex cloths in my kitchen and so I don’t use any cleaning sprays.

I had also picked up the diaper kit because, kids. I really liked the diapers and loved the wipes. I felt that the diapers were really comparable if not beating other brands I have used.

The plain diaper in this image is a generic brand from a big box store- bit of a difference for sure.

Not to mention the cute prints available (though this really doesn’t sell me as they are just covered up).


I liked the thickness of the wipes and felt they cleaned up a sticky mess quickly. They held up to the tough job.

Check out the texture (I don't know, people just always say things like that).

Though I have continued on with the bundle on the Essentials (body washes and lotions, some cleaning-ish items to come), but I haven’t actually gone forward with the diaper bundle just yet. I think that this bundle is most beneficial for those with smaller children. My current littlest is approaching two and is attempting interest in the potty so I would rather not waste a bunch of dry diapers in this time. That being said, should there be a need for diapers in the future (NO THIS IS NOT AN ANNOUNCEMENT OF ANY SORT), I will be getting this bundle going.

I should also note that you can get some really great deals on your first diaper bundle (Get $20 off your first Diapers and Wipes Bundle from Honest), so if you are ready to check out their bundles I suggest going with the trial kits first. You can check out the sample kits here (Get a FREE trial of your favorite Honest bundle), you just pay $5.95 shipping and really I thought it was worth the cost of shipping.

Have you tried Honest yet?
