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 to awaken their slumbering goals.

ONE STAR. It's trite nonsense. There are a very few pearls of wisdom but in the main it is a mystery that this book is so popular. The author defaults to an undertone of preaching/cajoling that can only be unironically used if success has already come your way and you don't actually care about anybody else's journey; the view is lovely if you're at the top looking down. So little humility, an uncomfortable read.

So much privilege in this book that she doesn't address. Couldn't even finish it.

I checked this out based on the quirky cover and snarky title expecting it to be a cheeky sarcastic self-improvement book for millennials. I was very wrong. I was not able to finish this book.

I enjoyed this book because of her personal anecdotes, it has entertainment value. I take her advice with a grain of salt because of her (relative) youth. I seriously wonder how her beliefs will transform as she approaches middle-age. Perhaps the sequel will be: Lady, Scrub Your Face!

Body shaming, judgement for other’s addictions while hypocritically dismissing her own (the attribution fallacy—others’ shortcomings are due to their character, but *mine* are due to circumstance) and a heaping dose of plagiarism make this book a complete waste of time. There are better, more inspirational and empowering books out there. This one reeks of privilege and narcissism.

I liked the book and found it interesting to read and somewhat helpful. I do agree with some of the comments that she writes from a place of privilege and wealth. Some of her chapters made me wonder if she is too focused on work, fame, and wealth. This also made it hard for me to relate to her. But, she does write with brutal honesty, so I can appreciate that about her. Overall, I liked her writing style and thought the book was well written. (4 stars)

This book was painfully bad. I could not even finish it. I had high expectations based on the popularity. Was glad I borrowed this book, rather than purchased.

This book was just "Okay" there are many other mindset books that are more empowering and transformational. Wasnt a bad read by any means, but wasn't as enlightening as the book has been portrayed as.
