Finished Reading: Girl, Wash your Face by Rachel Hollis

If you haven’t read one of my book reviews before, you should know I take instagram recommendations very VERY seriously. I’ve honestly never read anything about Rachel Hollis or heard about her brand Chic Media before in my life until this book began to blow up my Instagram.

I have a bookshelf/stack that are my go-to books when I need a refresher course on how valuable I am, how I am exactly where I need to be, and I’m exactly who I am because God loves me and made me this way.

Enter the next book to my favorite stack, Girl, wash your face by Mrs. Rachel Hollis. I have this weird thing about introducing folks with formal titles like Mrs, even though I hate to be referred to by that same title. Weird, right?

Anyways, GWYF is a refreshing read. Rachel is like that girlfriend you can spend hours at the coffeeshop with and forget your entire to do list and be totally ok with that. She opens the book with a brush stroke of honesty and humility but doesn’t stop there. This book is about all the lies we as women are told to believe, through culture, social media, even our families. Each chapter is a lie with a bit of a story how it has impacted her and trust me you will TOTALLY relate, followed by 3 or so ways that Rachel combats that particular lie in order to be a better more true version of herself.

Do I recommend Girl, wash your face? Yes. (get your own copy & feel all warm and fuzzy inside)
I also recommend a glass of wine or cup of coffee, depending on the time of day. And don’t read it at the library, there is a good chance you’ll yell out, “Preach it, Sister!” at least once (or 3 times).


I received a copy of this book for free from Booklook Bloggers in return for an honest review.
