The Honest Company Spreads It's Honesty Across Canada Too


I am sure almost everyone has heard about the Honest Company by now but it might be news to you that they have recently expanded their shipping parameters to Canada and it's territories. To say I was excited about this is the understatement of the century!

The story goes that Jessica Alba started a project after having her babies and realizing just how unsafe everything in the world really is. Instead of sitting back, whining about the injustice and spending thousands of dollars on high end brands that guaranteed nothing, she decided to change the game and make her own "natural" goodness. 
Talk about the proactive attitude! She put her money where her mouth is and just like that The Honest Company  was born.

The "Honest" brand essentially offers clean personal and home care products that are safe, effective, affordable, accessible and trustworthy when it comes to ingredients and formulation effectiveness. Their brand prerogative is to be good for the user, community and environment through transparency, responsibility and commitment to their customers. 
To put it plainly - this stuff is free from the usual nasties other household brands routinely use and as such safe to use even around babies. The company guarantees everything they make and strives to provide excellent customer service.


To spread their "honesty" throughout Canada they have a couple of enticing promotions going on right now; offering free* trial packs in the baby, family essentials and health categories. These trial packages come with no commitment, full guarantee and great value; making the offer a little too good to pass up.

My free* trial package was very easy to order on their site and arrived very quickly for a Canadian mailing. 
When I placed the order I was fully aware that this was a trial package but what I actually received in the mail surpassed any expectation I may have had! There are no tiny, single-use packets here - the five products included were all generously sized (1 fl. oz.) and came in an adorable re-usable box. This means that they give you enough product to conduct a real, significant trial before ordering the full size, which is something I find so annoying about foil samples. Personally I need to use something more than once to decide if it's right for me or not.


The Honest Company and me are obviously on the same page with this one. 

The products included in my kit were:



The one thing that you need to be aware and perhaps the only small drawback to this incredible deal is that by signing up for the trial you are indeed enrolling in the Honest Company Membership Program. However this doesn't mean you are making that commitment just by trying the products - the membership is easily canceled through their efficient customer service, which is very helpful, knowledgeable and appreciative of any concerns you may have.


If you indeed love the products you get then you can keep your membership along with it's many perks. These benefits include discount prices, bundle purchases, shipping schedule flexibility along with order customization. Basically you are in the driver seat, you choose what you get, when you get it and how often you get it! They also have a referral program where getting a friend signed up you automatically get $20.00 store credit, which is more than generous and can really add up in terms of free products! Honestly (pun fully intended!) the membership perks are some of the best I have come across. 
The other free* trials they are offering is the baby diaper bundle and the new health (vitamins) pack. Just like mine they only require shipping & handling fee payment of $5.95, which is ridiculously low when you consider post office prices in Canada. 

The baby diapers & wipes bundle contains 7 cute diapers and 10 accompanying wipes; while the Health & Wellness bundle gives you a choice between a 1-Day supply of Prenatal & DHA/Omega-3 and Baby & Toddler Multi Powder and Kid's Chewable Multi-Vitamins. 

The products I have tried during me Honest trial have definitively impressed me so far with the Honest Organic Healing Balm and Honest Liquid Hand Soap being the obvious stand outs. What I love the most about all of the Honest Company products is their signature milky vanilla orange blossom scent, which manages to be both soft and prominent with very light lingering effect on the skin. 
After this trial experiment I have decided to give the Honest Company Essentials Bundle a whirl and see how my first "real" order turns out. Being of fickle & indecisive nature I have been scouring their website, changing out products in my bundle, trying to decide what I want to try first. 
As they say "first world problems" 

If you want your very own trial kit you can use my referral link here (which would be so nice!) or visit their website directly

I hope this was helpful!

Have you tried the Honest Company yet? What is your favorite product? 

XOXO

  2. Having read this I believed it was extremely enlightening.
    I appreciate you finding the time and energy to put this article together.

    I once again find myself personally spending a significant amount of time both reading and posting comments.
    But so what, it was still worthwhile!

  3. I usually do not leave a response, however after browsing some of the remarks on "The Honest Company Spreads It's Honesty Across Canada Too".
    I do have a couple of questions for you if it's okay. Could it be
    only me or does it look like like a few of the
    remarks look like they are left by brain dead folks?

    :-P And, if you are writing at other online social sites, I'd like to keep up with anything fresh you have to post.
    Would you make a list of the complete urls of your social pages like your twitter feed, Facebook page or linkedin profile?

  6. Hey terrific blog! Does running a blog similar to this take a massive amount work?
    I have no expertise in coding however I was hoping to start my own blog soon.
    Anyhow, if you have any ideas or techniques for new blog owners please share.
    I understand this is off subject however I simply needed to ask.
    Cheers!

  7. FYI for all Canadian shipments, they charge a 25% "International surcharge" (on top of the $5.95 shipping cost), to cover "provincial taxes and duties". I suppose it's less of a blow if you're used to paying HST in the double digits, but if you're from Alberta, paying an extra 20% just for "duties" on cleaning products is a bad deal.
