As a new mom, Jessica Alba wanted to create the safest, healthiest environment for her family. But she was frustrated by the lack of trustworthy information on how to live healthier and cleaner-delivered in a way that a busy mom could act on without going to extremes. In 2012, with serial entrepreneur Brian Lee and environmental advocate Christopher Gavigan, she launched The Honest Company, a brand where parents can find reliable information and products that are safe, stylish, and affordable. The Honest Life shares the insights and strategies she gathered along the way. The Honest Life recounts Alba's personal journey of discovery and reveals her tips for making healthy living fun, real, and stylish, while offering a candid look inside her home and daily life. She shares strategies for maintaining a clean diet (with favorite family-friendly recipes) and embraces nontoxic choices at home and provides eco-friendly decor tips to fit any budget. Alba also discusses cultivating a daily eco beauty routine, finding one's personal style without resorting to yoga pants, and engaging in fun, hands-on activities with kids. Her solutions are easy, chic, and down-to-earth- they're honest. And discovering everyday ways to live naturally and authentically-true to you-could be honestly life-changing.

This wasn't bad, it was mostly a list of all the chemicals found in things, why they're bad, and how to avoid them. A lot of the suggestions were products made by her own company, but not all. It was easy to read and I didn't feel that I had to force myself through it.

The whole time I read this book I felt like the author was just trying to sell me products from her company. She also blabs on about herself and how great she is a fair bit. I did not gain much from this book and would not recommend it to anyone trying to live an eco lifestyle.

I love this book. It is full of useful information on living healthier for several different aspects of home life. She gives simple strategies for improving the quality of life for anybody but especially for families.

First of all, this bk could easily have been cut by a third. Some of Alba's statements cried out for footnotes. General notes in the back just don't cut it. And where's "the honest soul"? So many Hollywood lifestyle bks are just trying to sell you something; Alba seems to believe in what she's doing.
