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.

Great book.4 star

Raw, real, and straight forward. Thank you for this great read. 45


One of the best books I’ve read & I read A LOT5 star

I started reading this today because I desperately needed a distraction, and I didn’t stop until I finished it. Maybe it’s because I needed to hear it all, maybe it’s because I’m super sick and needed an excuse to just sit down, maybe it’s because I didn’t even want to face the world today anyway, but I promise you this book is worth your time. If you haven’t read it, read it, I will definitely read it again & again. If you’re looking for a gift for an adult female who reads, or even who doesn’t, this is a great option. And if you’re a woman I care about you can probably expect to receive a copy of this for the next giftable occasion! I’m also certain I need to read Girl, Stop Apologizing as much as I needed to read this one lol so it’s definitely in my future. Next stop: making post-its out of all the sections I highlighted so I can make sure I turn this motivation into action! 55


So Good & Encouraging5 star

Such an uplifting and inspirational book. I think if someone is literally just surviving right now and in need of motivation and women empowerment to get yourself up and started on your dream, this is your book! Great job Rachel! 55


Overrated2 star

She basically says the same thing over and over. “Everything happens for a reason” and “Talk to a therapist to get help”. The majority of the book is the story of her life and how she coped with her specific struggles (most of which were not relatable to me personally. I was pretty bored. 25


Girl, Have Empathy.4 star

I have to say,the book was great. But -1 ⭐️. Not everybody has the exact same problems as you. I can see that you wrote this for the people that DO have the same problems as you. But write more books about different problems. Not your own. 45


Increíble!!!5 star

Great book to read, love that she's a believer! Blessings 55


Terrible!1 star

So unrealistic and truly unrelatable. I do not get all the hype surrounding this awful book. Other reviews say it’s condescending and I agree! 15


Worst advice ever1 star

Never break a promise to yourself. Ok fine, but what if you’re living in poverty as a single mom and your promise was to never let your kids down but you feel that you do it day in and day out because of circumstances beyond your control. Maybe it works for her when she’s so bold as to hit her treadmill after too many martinis at midnight because she’ll never break a promise to herself, but this type of thing would never work IRL for people who are actually struggling and not just struggling to lose 2lbs of water weight. 15


Dangerous message1 star

This is a dangerous and harmful book. 15

Wake up5 star

This book is absolutely amazing! It made me laugh, cry and everything in between! Remarkable how true to life and down to earth this book is! Just hope I have the strength that it inspires 55


Inspiring5 star

I am a male and was told this is a good book so I read it. Definitely suggest reading. The language is easy to understand and the stories are relatable. 55


Inspiring and unapologetic5 star

This book is wonderful. Rachel says exactly how she feels and what she means without apology, which in today's climate is extremely refreshing and something that other self help books are seriously lacking. I know I'm not the only reader to feel this way but I truly felt that Rachel was taking words out of my head. Things that I always felt but were either afraid to say or didn't know how to articulate. Can't wait to read all her next books and eventually see her on the female self made millionaire CEOs Forbes list. Thank you Rachel! 55



Entertaining and fascinating. 55

This is what the world needs! Thank you for being brave enough to share your thoughts with the world. We needed this! 55
