Girl, Wash Your Face


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 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.

True words5 star

Amazing words of motivation. She’s like your best friend telling you all the things you need to hear but don’t want to hear... it’s a kick in butt to get over your self pity. 55


trash1 star

save your money, as a licensed therapist i can tell you that this book will do more harm than good. after hearing about it i decided to look into what made it popular. the only explanation is that it feeds off the same insecurities that make someone want to buy this kind of book in the first place- the mantra “your life isn’t what you want to be because you didn’t try hard enough”. it has the potential to make people feel bad for not having a charmed life as the author did and wondering why they aren’t as successful. not only is it condescending, the relationship advice is so so bad that i am sad for any unsuspecting person who comes across this and buys into any of it. its everything you’ve already heard before but with a white-privilege twist to it. 15

Do NOT let your daughter read this1 star

I downloaded the sample and then went for the $12.99 download which I now regret. This is unoriginal and I just get an icky feeling after reading this. Particularly when she is describing an awful boyfriend that used her which snap is now her husband. Yuck. Don’t read this and for the love of god don’t let your impressionable teen read it!!! 15

I wish I hadn’t paid for this1 star

Humble brag after humble brag. Every chapter she manages to mention herself and her accomplishments (company, marathons, being the most driven person she knows) while covering the surface of her struggles as an affluent white girl in Beverly Hills. I wish I had read more reviews before wasting my money. 15
