You guys know I love a good “clean” product. Well, over the past few months we’ve been dipping our toes in the Hello Bello line. In the world of clean living, you just have to use what works best for you, and with the influx of new clean goods coming to market, there are loads of excellent options out there you’ve been told to try. (Just bear in mind that not all clean products are created equally it does you good to do your own research!)
Hello Bello is a line of premium plant-based baby products from none other than Kristen Bell and Dax Shephard, available at ridiculously affordable prices. They remind me a lot of Honest products, but I’ve actually been way more impressed!
They maximize the use of organic, non-GMO, and plant-based ingredients insofar as they are able to, and I love one of their mottos is premium for all, and not premium for some. Amen to that! We have tried 4 things thus far, and here’s a breakdown of my thoughts!
The products we’ve tried so far are:
- Hello Bello Diapers – Hear Our Roar + Beach Bums
- Hello Bello Baby Wipes
- Hello Bello Premium Bubble Bath, Lavender
- Hello Bello Mineral Sunscreen Lotion
Hello Bello Diapers Review
Ok first, let’s talk about the big one! The diapers! I wouldn’t consider myself a diaper snob, but I do definitely have my preferences over the years. (Disclaimer My all-time favorites are Parasol—but they’re a little out of our budget lately so we haven’t even tried them yet )
You guys, I think I might have found a new personal favorite diaper! ESPECIALLY because they are so inexpensive. If you’re a price checker and are interested in determining your cost-per-diaper, you might be surprised by how inexpensive they are.
We’ve officially decided to purchase these whenever we can, and have based our budget on them. However, you’re wondering about the quality of the products, too. DO! One of the things I commented on upon opening a box for the first time was how soft they are. They are so, so soft, it’s crazy, and the designs on them are adorable!
In addition, they are hypoallergenic, eco-friendly, made without lotions containing phthalates, latex, have a super snug fit with some neat anti-leakage technology I won’t bore you with, they are designed to be both day and nighttime diapers, and again, so affordable that I adore them! 10/10 would recommend!
Hello Bello Baby Wipes Review
Next, I wouldn’t say I’m a bit of a wipes snob, but I do have my preferences. I mean, at their core, wipes merely wipe away poop, pee, and messes, and do they really need to be fancy? No, but they do need to be thicker than a single-ply piece of TP, not full of poor quality chemicals, and moist enough to do the job right! (Suppose I am a bit of a wipes snob saying it out loud)
And guys, Hello Bello Baby Wipes are pretty legit. (I have one complaint though, that I will save until the end!) If you’ve ever used Honest wipes, or Parasol wipes, or even Water Wipes or other top-of-the-line baby wipes, you know what I’m talking about when I say that some wipes are definitely better than others!
Hello, Bello Baby Wipes are more textured and have more of the feel of a fabric due to the pattern they create, and they are also thick and textured like a regular wipe. They’re also 99 percent water, thus effectively a Water Wipe. They’re fragrance-free, biodegradable, and work efficiently! They’re also the most cost-effective wipes I’ve found in a while.
My lone complaint is that because of their texture, they come out one by one more often than you’d like. So if you quickly pull one out, you may end up with two or three of them instead. That profoundly annoys me. Honest wipes do this to me as well. I’ve learned that if I can sort of get my finger under one side of it when I pull it out, I can quickly get one out at a time. Because of this, 9/10 would recommend.
Yaaaaaaassssss. This was actually the first Hello Bello product we tried because I had desperately been searching for a cleaner bubble bath alternative for my girly girl! I am so glad I tried it out! It’s because of this product that we decided to try a few more Hello Bello products! This bubble bath is such a great safer bubble bath option for littles. I love it so much!
It smells amazing, my daughter likes it because it’s fun to bathe in, and after getting in, she seems to relax and smile. It’s waterproof, bubbly, and made with all-natural ingredients. 10/10 would recommend.
Last, mineral sunscreen! You know I don’t mess around with sunscreen and only buy mineral sunscreen from now on. I firmly believe you get what you pay for, but over time, mama needs something more affordable. (I KNOW! Trust me!)
A few alternatives that are appealing to me are currently being used on my family, and I recently added Hello Bello SPF 50 Mineral Sunscreen to my list since we know it’s actually a terrific find! It’s passed with flying colors and we’re taking it to the beach with us. The best thing is, however, that I m torn between the fact that it works well or that it only costs less than $10!
Hello Bello’s Mineral Sunscreen utilizes an ecologically friendly zinc oxide formulation, instead of harmful chemicals like oxybenzone. It is broad spectrum UVA UVB protection 50, which is also water-resistant for 80 minutes. Check out everything it doesn’t contain! (If your current sunscreen has these ingredients, I still don’t know why you would use it, but I digress!)
I would say it’s 9/10 would highly recommend. It’s a fantastic choice, that also fits into your budget! I’ve used it on both the A B, and am pleased with it so tremendously!
Hello Bello Final Thoughts
We’ve had great success with the products we’ve tried, and I want to learn as much as I can about lots more. I’m going to try shampoo body wash the next time I go shopping, and I want to review the diaper rash cream as well so I can share my honest opinion on it!
