an 'honest' review



Before having Gabriel we were faced with the huge task of deciding what type of diapers to buy. Now it wasn't until we had him that we realized that he had to be born in order to find out which diaper would work for him. But you know you can't tell that to new parents ha! We danced with the idea of cloth diapering. We like the idea of re-using, reducing waste and the environmentally friendliness of it all. However, it just wouldn't work for us at this point and we ended up just going with the traditional brands that most people buy. We have had leaks, blow-outs up the back, poorly made, well made and thankfully no allergic reactions!

Then I heard about the Honest company dipes, wipes and cleaning supplies. I was intrigued since they claim to be, "eco-friendly, ultra absorbent & free of lotions, fragrances & latex." Pretty much awesomesauce. So of course, I had to check them out and try them out for myself or rather have little G test them out for me. Because after all he decides what works! Lucky for us before taking the plunge and making the commitment of signing up for the monthly shipments- we could take a test run! We signed up for the free-trial of a sample size of natural, high performing diapering essentials. • Diapers (7 count) • Wipes (10 count) and we paid for the shipping.


I was so excited when I opened the box and saw all of the cute designs (a lot like cloth diaper choices) and quickly put them on Gabe. Let's just say he is gifted in the testing out diapers and wipes area! He really wanted to make sure they were well made ;)


I'll keep this part short and sweet- these diapers are so well made! We had no leaks and no blow-outs and no allergic reactions. Believe me- Gabriel christened these in the best way possible and they held up to the task. The cherry on top is that it's great to know that the materials used are eco-friendly and it really speaks to what we wanted in the first place. 

The Cons: They are pricy. If you price them out you are paying more per diaper than several other major brands. However, they do have deals if you buy bundles and will apply % off depending on how much you buy. 

The Bottom Line: These diapers lived up to their name. If you have the income to buy them- I'd say go for it! As with any organic/eco-friendly/natural product not only are you paying for the product but for the "cleaner" and environmentally friendly lifestyle :) 

You can order the dipes and free-trial here: Honest.

I hope you all have a wonderful (leak-free) weekend! ;)

Abrazos,
Keila
