Since the bundles are the best value, I set about choosing the products I wanted for my first shipment. I chose the Essentials bundle which allows you to choose five products for 35.95 and add up to three additional products at a 25% discount. Since I had a promo code I ordered all 8 products.

There is a fifteen dollar surcharge to ship internationally, but with my discount it still came to about $45 total. The detergent did end up spilling slightly on it's way to me, but everything was very well packaged and I think the only reason this happened was because it arrived frozen solid! In the process of freezing and melting and expanding and blah blah it did seep out of the cap a little and make a bit of a mess, but I don't think I lost very much.
I was so surprised and pleased to find they also included a free bonus item! An adorable snow flake cookie cutter AND the organic cookie mix to go with it. That in itself is at least a five dollar value so I was very touched.

The Essential bundle all I had to do was choose a date from the drop down menu to indicate that I wouldn't be needing another bundle for awhile. I chose to indicate three months from my subscription date, but that was arbitrary. It appears you can choose any date in the future to continue your service. This is great if you happen to be a young married couple with no children who don't need diapers every month, or go through their cleaning products too quickly. This also means that you could ensure you always have their products on hand by checking an earlier date. Just estimate how long your products will last and subscribe from there.
If you have small kids, are expecting a child, or just want to use safe, green products around your home I would highly recommend the Honest Company.
