As I mentioned last week, NJhusband and I are in the very beginning stages of TTC and I'm on the hunt for beauty and home products that will be safe for us, baby and our dog! I decided to try out The Honest Company's line and see what I thought. I bought the body lotion, bug spray, laundry detergent, body oil and dishwasher gel to try out. First up on my list is the Face & Body lotion.
The feel of the lotion is great and it absorbs into the skin fabulously. Almost instantly my skin felt hydrated and it was such a great feeling. Unfortunately, the *smell is a MAJOR deterrent for me. It's much too flowery for my taste. My husband came home and said it "smelt like a grandma". I wanted to love it, since finding a body and face lotion that is natural and free of the common chemicals is high on my priority list, but I probably won't buy this again. I just can't get over the smell. If you are looking for a baby-friendly lotion I would get a sample of this before you buy a bottle first to see if you like the fragrance. I will also say that I probably wouldn't use this on a boy, it has a distinct "girly" smell for sure. I have my fingers crossed they come up with another great face/body lotion that has a different fragrance SOON!
*For the record, the bottle says it's fragrance free, but it definitely has a strong smell. I assume they just mean it has no added synthetic fragrance, but I feel like that could be a bit misleading.
Next up: the body oil
The Honest Company has no idea who I am. I bought all these products myself in a true quest to find baby and pregnancy friendly products for our home and wanted to share my thoughts with others.
