Book Review: Girl, Wash Your Face

Hey everyone! I just finished reading “Girl, Wash Your Face” by Rachel Hollis. I cannot even begin to tell you how fantastic this book is. I literally could not make myself put the book down. This is one of those books that makes you want to grab a highlighter and dog-ear all the pages! I loved this book that much. Now I’m going to tell you why you will love the book as well!

Maybe you are like me (trying to find your way and place in this world. See The Journey ) Or maybe you are one of those special few that feels like they have their whole life figured out. Either way, you can totally benefit from reading Rachel’s book.

I decided to order the book from Amazon because I thought I might be able to relate to some of her topics. However, what I didn’t expect, was just how much I would relate to Rachel on almost EVERY single topic.

The topics of the book are each divided into their own chapter. Each chapter is a lie we tell ourselves, or a lie we hear at some point in our lives and on our journey (I love that word, in case you couldn’t tell). For example, Chapter 3: I’m Not Good Enough. Or Chapter 10: I Should Be Further Along By Now. What about Chapter 15: I Will Never Get Past This, or Chapter 17: I am Defined By My Weight. Any of these sound like something you may have told yourself somewhere along the way? These are just a few of the tough, real-life topics that Rachel lays on the table for us.

In discussing all of these really tough subjects, Rachel is able to personify herself, and make it so that we are able to connect and relate to her in all of this. She forces herself to be incredibly candid and blunt as she walks us through her own struggles. For me, on so many different levels, this book made me realize that its ok to have struggles or self-doubt. But the trick is all in how you handle it, and get past all the negatives.

 I love Rachel’s book because it taught me how I should be living my life today. Rachel taught me so many valuable life lessons that I will carry with me for a very long time. You will not regret reading this book. I am so sure of that, I have included the Amazon link here so that you can go buy the book for yourself. I hope you love it, and it helps you just as much as it did me!
