Friday Favorites: Honest Company Faves

Recently, I have been exploring the realm of all natural and organic food and products. I know it is a fad right now, but I have made this personal decision to better the health and well being of my family. Although, being organic and all natural can be pretty expensive so we are making these changes on a budget and very slowly.

 I wanted products that didn't have harsh fumes or chemicals and something I felt good about using my my son's toys and high chair. I also wanted to use products that  had all natural ingredients instead of things like parabens and phlalates, and have ingredients I could pronounce easily. 

One thing we have found is the Honest Company. I love this company and its products. Their goal is to create effective, yet safe, eco-friendly, and affordable products. For my budget, their product prices didn't exactly scream affordable but it was something I really wanted to try their products out. So through getting a bundle, I was able to save some money which definitely helps. Here are my favorites so far!

1. Fruit and Veggie Wash

Buying organic fruits and vegetables can get pretty expensive and we only buy them when we are able or if it is at a good price. So when we aren't buying organic, we use this wash. It has no odor and
 washes right off all the while taking off any waxy coating, chemicals, and residues. Even though the produce we are eating may not be organic, it is affordable for us and clean.

2. Multi Surface Cleaner

 I mainly use this for James' high chair and toys when I need to quickly clean them. (Note: It doesn't not replace sterilizing) Unlike conventional multi-surface cleaners, it isn't too fragrant, the smell is just right and it gets all of food grime or spit off of whatever I am cleaning. It leaves no residue and you are left with a clean surface. The cleaning products come in large 26oz spray bottles so you are getting your moneys worth while getting a safe, good quality product.

3. Nipple Balm

Mommas who breastfeed, this stuff is awesome. If you think lanolin works great, this stuff works even better. It is very soothing and easy to apply. You also do not have to wipe it off before baby feeds.

4. Healing Balm

Love this stuff like I do the nipple balm but you can use it anywhere on your body. Whether you have dry skin to diaper rash, this stuff works. I like to use it on the dry areas on my skin. A little goes a long way, I am still using the one from the free trial I received!

5. Wipes

I love these, but right off I will tell you that they are a little pricey for my budget so they stay in the diaper bag. I like how they can be gentle on baby's bottom yet you can use it to clean dropped toys, or wipe baby's face. They contain no chlorine, alcohol, and are biodegradable. Again, not the most affordable but I like the safer ingredients and versatility of these wipes.

If you are looking for a way to go all natural or organic with affordability, I would say this is a great way to start. The company does offer a free trial where you only have to pay shipping. It is definitely worth trying to see if it is something you would be interested in.

Do you have any organic or all natural brands to recommend? Or any homemade or DIY products?

Thanks for stopping by!



  1. I may need to look into the nipple balm. I actually had an allergic reaction to lanolin :( I basically just had to suck it up and get thru that tough part of nursing.

    1. Oh no :( That is no fun! I think that the nipple balm is so gently yet effective. So if you do try it, I hope it works out!
