Reviews Girl, Wash Your Face

  • Rachel Hollis
    Because, if I don't think it's worth five stars, what hope is there??
  • Christy
    5 stars!!! Rachel Hollis's newest book Girl Wash Your Face is just the book I needed to read to start my new year. It's one of those books that made me think about my life, the things I do, and it was a highly entertaining read! A few months ago, one of my facebook friends posted about this thing called 'The Last 90 Days'. I read up on it, and I was inspired to make changes to my life and not wait until the first of the year, but do it now. I sta...

    There were parts of this book that were highly motivating and not too coddling, which is always appreciated. One thing that was tough was a constant thread of diet culture and weight loss talk throughout the whole book. The chapter about weight itself was...not great. There is a line where the author says (paraphrased) "science shows you need to eat less and move more, the end!" Where a lot of the other chapters examined the nuance of different i...

    ❝If we can identify the core of our struggles, while simultaneously understanding that we are truly in control of making changes, then we can utterly change our trajectory.❞ I've laughed, cried and contemplated. There are self-help books, and then there's 'Girl, Wash Your Face'!Through lies she's told herself, Rachel Hollis takes her readers on a journey through her triumphs and losses, heartbreaking moments and celebrations. ❝Recognizing t...

    This book is for privileged white women with no real problems but the ones they make up for themselves. I was told this book was “inspiring”. But let’s be real, it’s easy for a rich lady to tell me (or anyone) that I’m “in control of my own life”. Any woman with a husband who makes enough money that you find yourself on the red carpet can say that. I found this book to be very unrelatable and full of humble brags. It was like social...
  • Sadie Esplin
    Some parts of this book spoke deeply to my soul, and others made me want to punch someone in the face. I struggled with every word she said about diet and body image—what was meant to be uplifting and inspiring was preached as scientific fact from someone with no medical/dietetic credentials. She had nothing to back up her claims, but she preached it like doctrine. I also really really really struggled with the story of how she met her husband....
  • Britany
    Multiple people told me to read this book, so I figured I'd give it a shot. I've never heard of Rachel Hollis before or anything about her.I listened to this on audio, read by the author which was a treat. She goes through some lies that she used to believe about herself in hopes to help other women from falling into the same pitfalls. Most of this is pretty cliched, but sometimes it's a nice reminder to pick yourself up by the bootstraps and wor...

    Two reads completed, several passages highlighted, and a whole new perspective on life and the pursuit of happiness. :)Rachel Hollis has given us a new book! It's not fiction, it's not a cookbook, it's Girl, Wash Your Face: Stop Believing the Lies about Who You Are so You Can Become Who You Were Meant to Be. Part self help, part honest, heartbreaking non-fiction, Girl, Wash Your Face was the book I didn't know I needed. Broken into chapters by li...

    There were parts of this book that were motivating but nothing presented was new and it was all stuff we've seen or heard before. I definitely feel like it's marketed and better suited towards the 20 something demographic. Women who are really getting started with life, careers, etc. I did find the information regarding her personal business interesting. Having been a blogger for awhile and knowing how hard it is to truly find success I was impre...
  • Beverly
    This book is truly AMAZING! I mean I loved every minute of it. I have told all my family and friends to read this book and now I am telling you, READ IT you won't regret it!
  • Chelsey the crazy cat lady
    This is a book all girls need to read. It was so good. I loved Rachel’s honesty throughout it. So much in there to put into practice and learn from. Thank you Rachel for writing it
  • Heidi
    I received an ARC from the publisher, in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are my own.Honestly, the only reason I'm writing this review is that I agreed to after receiving an advanced copy from the publisher. I had never heard of Rachel Hollis before being part of the advanced review team for this book, so I began to follow her on social media. I read the book quickly and it is an easy read. Hollis begins each chapter with a lie she bel...
  • Amy (Foxy)
    It's hard not to get motivated when you get bit by Rachel Hollis' enthusiasm. She lays it all out there and shares stuff that is deeply personal for her. Her vulnerability allows the reader to tear down their own walls knowing they aren't alone in their journey. Thank you for sharing your story with us, Ms. Hollis. I've been a fan of yours for awhile and I enjoy getting a glimpse into your personal life via InstaGram stories and lives. GIRL, WASH...

    **I received an ARC of this book from the publisher; opinions are my own**"Girl, Wash Your Face," honestly, isn't anything new. All the same, I found that it resonated with me in a way that not many self-help books ever have. Part of it, no doubt, is where I am in my own life. I suspect that had I read it even five years ago, GWYF likely would not have hit me in the same way. A bigger part of it, though, is that Rachel Hollis just seems so damn l...
  • Carrie Rogers
    Girl, stop preaching at me
  • Karen
    I'm not Rachel's target audience. Proof? I had never even heard of her before seeing this book pop up on hoopla even though she's labeled as a "lifestyle guru" and I'll be honest, had I known, I likely would have passed this one by. There are some good moments here and I can see why it appeals to a certain audience even if, for me, it was only okay. I don't agree with all of her advice - yes, we teach people how to treat us and staying in a relat...
  • Robin
    Anyone who starts a book with. a story about peeing your pants, you know you are in for something good!I am new to the world of Rachel Hollis and her story. I dove into this book not entirely knowing what to expect. I was very impressed with her wit and humor as well as her ability to get serious. Rachel seems like a girl I would want to know and have chats over coffee and that is exactly what I got out of this book. Warning, I was not able to pu...
  • Anna LeBaron
    Still making excuses for why you haven't done __________ (fill in the blank)? Girl, Wash Your Face is a swift (but very sweet) kick in the pants for any woman that struggles with why they are not pursuing their God-given dreams or are not utilizing their strengths, talents, gifts, skills, and abilities to improve their lives and the lives of those around them. The chapter about grief helped me immensely and the last chapter left me ready to take ...

    Every year, in early December, I share a post with the best books I've read that year. I always think, "I'm so picky about what I consider a 'best book' so there's no way anything I read in the final three weeks of the year will be better than these." I have a post for fiction and a post for non-fiction. This year, my non-fiction list was small... just two books (Of Mess and Moxie: Wrangling Delight Out of This Wild and Glorious Life by Jen Hatma...

    Rachel delivers a no-holds barred, quit your stinkin thinkin message that allows the reader to stop, evaluate, and keep only what serves us well through sharing her insites. Rachel is wise beyond her years and a very intuitive entrepreneur who is willing to share the recipe to success if we will just do the work. Don't just buy this book, go see her at Rise and let your life become a better version of itself. You can't ask for a better and inform...

    I love reading anything that will help me with my personal development. I'm a big believer in doing all I can to grow as a person and learn more about myself each and every day. I have been following Rachel Hollis for over a year now and can I just say, she is my idol!!! She is just a hard-working business owner, mama, and best self advocate I can't get enough of her insta feed! When she announced that she was writing a book - a bare your soul, t...
  • Jenni
    Ok, maybe I’m the wrong audience for this. Or maybe I shouldn’t have chosen the audiobook narrated by the author. But I just couldn’t finish thisMostly, I found the author’s supposed revelations to be really obvious and unenlightening. “It’s important to have self-worth by dumping the guy who uses you as a booty call (but oh yeah I ended up marrying the guy).” “Hey girls, we should support each other instead of judging each other....
  • Abbie Miller
    We’re being honest here, right? After all, that was the premise of the book. To be clear, I’m not in the target demographic for this title. (I’m over 40! Oh, the horror!) This was just another self-help book written by a self-proclaimed celebrity (ish) who wants to be recognized for changing all our lives. We should admit we’re imperfect, confess to wearing Spanx and give in to the demands of life and just show up at our kid’s school in...
  • Sara Kate
    I loved every drop of this book. So much to soak into my soul.
  • Liza Fireman
    I really like Rachel Hollis (even though I had no clue that she existed until very lately). She is candid, vulnerable and authentic. She puts herself out there, but she is not giving up or letting herself easy unhappiness. Here is the essence of this book and why I loved it: Have you ever believed that you aren’t good enough? That you’re not thin enough? That you’re unlovable? That you’re a bad mom? Have you ever believed that you deserv...
  • Rhonda Ruff
    Good book! Meant for younger ladies but I enjoyed it
  • Bridget
    Nope. Belittling people by saying you can pick yourself up by the boot straps and CHOOSE happiness is irresponsible and uneducated. It just isn’t that simple. Her approach to body image and dieting is downright scary. She seems very self centered and looking for her 15 minutes as opposed to ‘helping’ anyone let alone women. Throwing in a scripture here and there does not a Christian based book make. This should not be considered self help. ...
  • Olivia
    I started out listening to this book without any expectations. One of the mommy blogs I follow posted that she had read this book and loved it, so I decided to check it out. It was painfully hard for me to finish listening to this book, but finishing something gives me a sense of accomplishment, so here I am. It started out ok. She gives a little pep talk at the beginning and then starts each chapter out with a lie she believed and how she has wo...
  • Lis
    1 ⭐ because I could not/did not finish this one. I went into this book with excitement and an open mind realizing that many parts would not be for me as I am not Christian and therefore not the base that Rachel Hollis is writing for. This book was for a book club I’m part of and was ready for something out of my typical genre.This book was not for me. The chapter on her experiences with the foster care system felt very self-centered and self-...
