Now that I have been a subscriber to The Honest Company since July, I have been able to try out a ton of their products and I thought I would post a review of my thoughts on each of the ones that I've tried. I have tried at least 14 of their more than 20 products. I haven't found one product that I disliked enough to never want to order it again. And many have become my favorites, particularly their healing balm and bubble bath. We are also still loving our diapers and wipes bundle. The diaper line has recently released new patterns that are really cute and a new limited edition holiday diaper with snowflakes is available now.

- Honest hand soap: This 12-ounce hand soap is infused with organic lemongrass oil and grapefruit seed botanical extracts to protect, clean and soften hands. The low-suds lather is non-toxic, ph neutral, safe, and effective. The lemongrass scent is clean and refreshing. I really like this handsoap. It doesn't seem like it leaves my hands feeling dry after I wash them time after time all day long. And the scent is really pleasant. It's not overpowering, but makes my hands smell clean. Retails for $5.99.
- Honest dish soap: This 16-ounce dish soap easily penetrates foods, milk and formula residue, and general household messes. The ultra-concentrated formula features tons of suds. It is hypoallergenic and free of synthetic dyes and fragrances. It leaves dishes streak free and spotless. I love the white grapefruit scent. And it's gentle on my hands while still getting my dishes squeaky clean. You could also use it as hand soap if you prefer the grapefruit scent to the lemongrass scent of the hand soap. Retails for $5.95.
- Honest Fruit + Veggie Wash: This 8-ounce 100 percent plant-based non-toxic fruit and vegetable wash safely removes toxic pesticides and chemical residues along with pathogens, waxes, dirt, oils, and bacteria surface contaminants. It leaves no taste or odor behind and is significantly more effective than rinsing foods with water alone. It also inhibits browning and helps produce to last 200 percent times longer. I am in love with this fruit and vegetable cleaner. It is super easy to use. Just throw the produce in a colander, spritz it with the cleaner, wait a few minutes and then scrub and rinse off with water. It has a pleasant citrus-y scent. Retails for $6.99.
- Honest Rinse Aid: This pure rinse formula safely cleans and adds sparkle to dishes, eliminating haze, spotting, streaking, and calcium deposits. Dishes and glassware come out clean without any chemical residue left behind. Its gentle enough to wash china, silver, and porcelain. The bottle contains enough rinse aid for 75 loads depending on your dishwasher's average release amounts. This rinse aid works okay. I have noticed a difference in our glasses since I began using it. We do have an older dishwasher that needs replacing though so I can't speak to how well this would do with a better dishwasher. Retails for $5.95.

The next new products that I have ordered and that are set to arrive soon are the body oil, hand sanitizer, and lip balm. The company is frequently releasing new products and making improvements to old ones. For instance, the next round of baby wipes are supposed to be interlaced to make them easier to remove from the wipes container. The company has also changed the increments by which you can receive your bundles. Now you can change your schedule to receive bundles on a monthly, 6-week, or 8-week basis. I love this because we have never used an entire month's supply of diapers before we receive new diapers so I've spread our deliveries out. The company has also recently started a gifting program where you can buy 1, 3, or 6 months of the bundles for a friend or family member. This would make a really great baby shower gift. Another bonus for this company is their great customer service. If you want to make a change to your bundle that isn't an option on the website, you can just call and ask. For example, I was able to split my diaper bundle into two sizes when I was trying to see if Owen was ready for size four diapers so that I got half size threes and half size fours. I was also able to add one package of size 1 diapers into my order one month when I wanted to gift them to a friend who is having a baby.
