#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER
Do you ever suspect that everyone else has life figured out and you don’t have a clue? If so, Rachel Hollis has something to tell you: that’s a lie.
As the founder of the lifestyle website TheChicSite.com and CEO of her own media company, Rachel Hollis developed an immense online community by sharing tips for better living while fearlessly revealing the messiness of her own life. Now, in this challenging and inspiring new book, Rachel exposes the twenty lies and misconceptions that too often hold us back from living joyfully and productively, lies we’ve told ourselves so often we don’t even hear them anymore.
With painful honesty and fearless humor, Rachel unpacks and examines the falsehoods that once left her feeling overwhelmed and unworthy, and reveals the specific practical strategies that helped her move past them. In the process, she encourages, entertains, and even kicks a little butt, all to convince you to do whatever it takes to get real and become the joyous, confident woman you were meant to be.
With unflinching faith and rock-hard tenacity, Girl, Wash Your Face shows you how to live with passion and hustle--and how to give yourself grace without giving up.

Really didn’t like the book. Would not recommend to anyone. Beware! Do not let you child read this. Advice is giving in a bad way. 25
I heard this author on a podcast say she never reads reviews. That’s too bad because she should know what she said about her husband is downright dangerous to women. Ladies most guys who treat you how he did are not going to suddenly become healthy partners. Furthermore I find it astounding that so many say this book changed their lives. It’s so basic and rips off everything that’s already out there. Just a compilation of other people’s work and ideas who are actually qualified to give advice, but said in a sassy little privileged way. I would have more respect if she actually referenced her quotes and information but she doesn’t even give people credit for what she so clearly has taken from others. I’m the last one to want to hate on another woman but this is just trite garbage. 15
Maybe I missed this and it’s my fault, but I don’t have the same belief system and I feel like I bought a very religious book when I thought it would be helpful for everyone. I was disappointed. 15
I recently deleted all my social media for a while because I’m trying to make all the changes necessary for a healthier lifestyle, no matter how small! So I made a list of books that I could read while I bored at work now that I don’t have social, This was the first one I chose! I absolutely loved everything about it!!!! 55
This book was everything that I needed and when I needed to hear it. Hands down an amazing read! 55
Love how raw and honest Rachel Hollis is and this book was an amazing read! 55
I was all into the first part of this book but when I got to the part about her relationship I lost all respect. When you have such a HUGE platform like this and you literally write about an abusive relationship for an entire chapter, talk about how you’ll warn your kids to never be in a relationship like this, then say, “people change, we got back together and have babies etc. but not all situations are like this so don’t stay in your situation if you’re in one..” thats disgusting. Not only are you encouraging (yes unknowingly, believe me the slightest hope like that makes your brain go crazy) unhealthy relationships but you are giving people false hope even if you mildly addressed that not all people change. You are in a narcissistic adult-adult abusive relationship and him showing up at your door was not because he loves you it was because he was trying to trap you for life and it looks like it worked. I was seriously like, “GIRL YAS, CUT THE CHAIN, YAS” and then you married the guy. All respect gone. Couldn’t even finish the book because at the point I was so disappointed and disgusted that the rest was probably all lies. You said you’re honest, heres some honesty for you. 15
Really changed my life! 55
This was the first book I fully finished in a long time. Her writing is amazing and I absolutely fell in love with the book that I literally could not stop reading it! It took me a week to finish because I could not get my hands off of it! 😂 I 100% recommend and can’t wait to pass the book onto someone else who can fall in love with it just like I did! SO GOOD. 🤗 55
True inspiration ... thank you for sharing your story... You make me want to write my own... ❤️ 55
Obsessed with Rachel and her drive. She’s humble, genuine and tough. If you want to change your thought process or if you’re looking for that sign, it’s here. 55
I’m grateful that a successful young woman is vulnerable enough to put it all out there and stand her ground while not claiming to be perfect or that she is perfection now that she has overcome. I had so many takeaways from this book. Now for my teen to read it. 💗 55
This book has changed the way I look at and process things! There were several times where I had “aha” moments! 55
Phenomenal book that hit home in SOOOO many ways it’s unbelievable 55
Thank you Rachel. Your words have meant so very much to me. 55
I laughed (a lot), cried and reflected. Her truth is so real and authentic. Do yourself a favor and read this book! Thank you Rachel! 💚🙌🏻🙏🏻💪🏻😂✌🏻 55
Rachel Hollis is so relatable! I love her quirky, in your face manner of getting you to your full potential. This book has given me a platform to start dreaming again and I’m so thankful! 55
I’ve read 2 chapters and can’t bring myself to read anymore, it’s just silly with dime store advice 25
I have mixed feelings about this book. Disappointed that I didn’t realize it’s directed toward Christians (and if you aren’t one a lot of the advice is meaningless). I also find it odd that the point of the book is that YOU are in control and then there are chapters where we are told to find peace with the fact that “God is in control”. Wish I had done my HW before buying. 35
This is another rich white lady spewing prosperity gospel. You can get it if you really want, and if not it’s your own fault be you didn’t keep the promise to yourself. Sure, cause that’s how it goes if you’re poor, disabled or facing systemic oppression. Her interpretation of the Bible is adventurous at best, and the way she talks about her children’s biological parents is despicable. How Christian of her judging them for their diseases. Girl, you don’t get to tell me what to do. 15
