With wry wit and hard-earned wisdom, popular online personality and founder of TheChicSite.com founder Rachel Hollis helps readers break free from the lies keeping them from the joy-filled and exuberant life they are meant to have.

Founder of the lifestyle website TheChicSite.com and CEO of her own media company, Chic Media, Rachel Hollis has created an online fan base of hundreds of thousands of fans by sharing tips for living a better life while fearlessly revealing the messiness of her own. Now comes her highly anticipated first book featuring her signature combination of honesty, humor, and direct, no-nonsense advice.

Each chapter of Girl, Wash Your Face begins with a specific lie Hollis once believed that left her feeling overwhelmed, unworthy, or ready to give up. As a working mother, a former foster parent, and a woman who has dealt with insecurities about her body and relationships, she speaks with the insight and kindness of a BFF, helping women unpack the limiting mind-sets that destroy their self-confidence and keep them from moving forward.

From her temporary obsession with marrying Matt Damon to a daydream involving hypnotic iguanas to her son’s request that she buy a necklace to “be like the other moms,” Hollis holds nothing back. With unflinching faith and tenacity, Hollis spurs other women to live with passion and hustle and too awaken their slumbering goals.

Before I got back into reading all the fiction, I was obsessed with self help books. My early 20s were really a time when I had absolutely no idea what I was doing. So I’m not really sure why I decided, kind of out of nowhere to pick up ‘Girl, Wash Your Face’ By Rachel Hollis.

I am so glad I did! This is honestly a great book for anyone who sometimes feels like they don’t have their life together. It addresses how people compare themselves to what others post online and the difference between that and reality.

I really appreciate how real and authentic Rachel is through her book and how honest she is with everything. Knowing what she has accomplished I love seeing the real person behind all the success.

Honestly if you are someone in your teens, 20’s, 30’s, 40’s etc. There will be something in this book that you can appreciate and hopefully something that makes you remember you are you and no one else can be you.
