The Honest Company Review

October 10, 2012

Post contains my referral link. If you make a purchase after clicking my link, I will receive a credit.  All opinions expressed are my own.

The Honest Company, founded by Jessica Alba and Christopher Gavigan, is a fairly new company (launched 1/2012) based in Santa Monica, CA that provides safe, non-toxic, and eco-friendly products centered on baby. They provide a wide range of products from all natural shampoo to adorable, plant-based and sustainable diapers. My review will focus on their diaper bundle service. Each month for $79.95 you can receive what is called a “diaper bundle”. In this bundle you will receive a select amount of diapers based on your baby’s size and 4 packs of 70 count wipes.


Once you have created an account on their website you can easily manage a diaper bundle for your child. There is a personalized page for each child in your family that receives a bundle where you can choose diaper patterns, sizing, and a delivery date. With each bundle order you can mix and match patterns or if your prefer just choose white. Patterns include those pictured below but they also introduce adorable seasonal patterns which subscribers have first access too.

Your monthly subscription can be updated at any time with your little one’s sizing, patterns, or delivery date (adjust to make sooner or later if needed). They even send out email reminders when your delivery date is approaching so you can update anything if you need to. You are also free to cancel your subscription whenever you choose. After you have completed your preferences for the bundle service you can expect your delivery each month at your doorstep – no more running to the store for diapers and wipes! As a side note, make sure when setting your delivery date to allow approximately 5-7 days for shipping if you live on the east coast – this is the amount of time it takes for my shipment to arrive.



Having used both conventional and natural diapers in the past on my daughters, I have found these to truly be the best. They feature all of the same qualities as conventional diapers (without the nasty chemicals) such as a stretchy back panel and side tabs.

They also offer great leak protection. My daughter rarely ever has blowouts in these and when she has had them, I am sure it would have happened in any other diaper as well. The main reason I found out about The Honest Company was through my search for a non-toxic alternative to conventional diapers. This is by far one of the most non-toxic disposable diapers available.




Ingredients contained in diapers:
Totally Chlorine-Free (TCF) Wood Pulp (From Certified Sustainably Managed Forests, No Optical Brighteners), Absorbent Bio-Core (Wheat/Corn Polymer Blended With Sodium Polyacrylate), Plant-Based PLA (Inner and Outer Layers), Safe Adhesives (Seams and Joints), Polymer Spandex and Polyolefin (Leg/Waist System), Polyurethane (Waist Padding), Ink (Made Without Lead and Heavy Metals In Printed Backsheet), Citrus Extract and Liquid Chlorophyll (Natural Acting Odor Blockers In Bio-Core)


The fragrance free wipes are also of excellent quality. They are soft, thick, absorbent, and I only require 1-2 per change. I have found that these are actually way better than any other wipes currently on the market.

Ingredients contained in wipes:
Purified Water, Citric Acid (Fruit-Based Stability Agent), Silver Dihydrogen Citrate (All Natural, Water-Soluble Preservative), Decyl Glucoside (Sugar-Based Cleanser), Sodium Citrate (Corn-Based Antioxidant), Punica Granatum (Pomegranate Fruit) Extract, Glycyrrhiza Uralensis (Licorice Root) Extract, Chamomilla Recutita (Chamomile) Extract, Cucumis Sativus (Cucumber Fruit) Extract, Peucedanum Ostruthium (Masterwort Leaf) Extract

You can feel more than confident using these diapers and wipes on your baby knowing that no harmful chemicals are coming in contact with your baby’s most sensitive areas.

As for the cost of the diaper bundle each month, they have created a price comparison chart for reference. I have shopped for eco-friendly and natural diapers elsewhere and The Honest Company always comes out cheaper for me since they include more than enough diapers and wipes in the monthly bundle.

In addition to making superior quality diapers and wipes, The Honest Company has great customer service. They are always a call, email, or even Facebook message away. Whenever I have had a question it has been answered promptly by one of their friendly customer service representatives. They also guarantee your order so if you are not 100% satisfied you can send it back for a full refund.

Another benefit of the subscription service is you can add up to 3 shop items to be shipped with your bundle at 25% off each. This special discount is perfect for stocking up on shampoo, lotion, and diaper cream.


I am extremely happy with The Honest Company and feel there is really no comparison to any other diapers on the market. With the convenience they provide in the monthly delivery service, the peace of mind of natural products, and the exceptional quality, The Honest Company is definitely worth it.

    I have a question about the usage vs. frequency of shipments – Does it seem like you use the diapers up in time to receive another order every month or are you receiving a lot of surplus (or not enough)?

    I am super interested in using Honest diapers and wipes in a bundle, but I’m just wondering if we will even use up the amount of diapers each month before the new bundle comes along.

      you can delay bundles if you are not ready for the new shipment…or move an order up if you are getting low.

    I have been receiving Honest Company bundles for several months now and have been very happy. I do find that I have a lot more wipes than I probably need, but they are useful for more than just changing diapers and won’t dry go to waste. One of the perks is that I get an email letting me know when to expect my next shipment. If I don’t need it shipped when they are planning to, I simply go to my account online and change the date. I hope that helps.

    I’m very interested in these diapers! I am almost 5 months pregnant and I’m just not sure when I should start to order my shipments and if the newborn diapers will fit my baby for a whole month? Do you have any experience with the newborn diapers to a typical newborn size?

    • Reply jessica May 3, 2014 at 1:51 pm

      My babies have all worn newborn diapers for a month but if you call and start a bundle they can put in different sizes so you could get like 4 nb and 2 size 1 if you are worried you will have to many nb size.

      • Reply amber May 6, 2014 at 3:14 am

        actually the NB size comes with 8 packs of diapers, so if you split the sizes up you will get 7 packs. I just received my bundle with 2 NB 2 sz 1 and 3 sz 2. But you do need to call for this.

    We would be interested in these diapers! Our friends baby is on the way and they would be a perfect gift.

    I’ve been getting Honest diapers for well over a year now for my son and have been very pleased with them! I love the cute designs and the fact that they are delivered right to my door! It’s great to be able to manipulate the send date so that if we go through them faster/slower than normal I can have them sent sooner/later depending.

    When should I start my order
    For the diaper bundles?
    I’m only half way but should I start ordering 2 weeks prior to my due date?

    • Reply Peace Love Organic Mom February 22, 2016 at 4:42 am

      I would set up your account now and then set the bundle date for 2 weeks before as it can take about 1 week to receive your bundle. After you receive your first bundle you can then change the next date to whenever you need them again (leaving time for shipping). Thats why I love how their bundles work because you can choose the date you would like to receive the order.
