This book was recommended to me by my hair dresser who is 20 years younger than me. I thought prior to reading that its content might not apply to me a fifty plus woman. I was wrong. It is a must read with hard truths and inspiring personal stories. It has made me think about whats keeping me from succeeding in all areas of my life.

This book is real. She pours out her sadness to give you hope through yours. She doesn’t try to sell you some miracle self help book. She speaks as though you (the reader) is her friend that she genuinely wants to succeed. I loved every page and will read over and over.

Excellent book! A definite must-read for every single woman in the whole entire world. Seriously. Hollis does a beautiful job laying out ugly truths and encouraging the reader to make a better life. As she says, STOP waiting for someone else to fix your life. Take care of your body. Go all-in towards your goals. Stop comparing yourself to others. No excuses. Be a good human and treat other humans with kindness and respect. Cry. Laugh. Have fun and be silly. Love. EAT. Have sex. Stop judging people. Lift each other up. Embrace the chaos and don't you EVER give up. Determine what you want your life to be like and go get 'em.

Girl, Wash Your Face By Rachel Hollis Easy to read: Yes Life changing: Yes Inspiring: Yes Full of truths: Yes Down to earth: Yes Yes, Yes, Yes to this book. I want to buy it for every girl I know young and old. I think that Rachels honesty throughout this book is what makes it so special. We are all in need of her words and I hope that you read this book! Perspective: 31 yr old, wife to my high school sweetheart, mother of 2 boys (3 and 7), casual Occupational Therapy Assistant, a sufferer of anxiety/depression, and most important Jesus freak. I can say that this book was read in almost an evening and got me all pumped I couldn't go to sleep. Not to steal the phrase but just do it. I received this book from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

There is at least one chapter in this book for every woman. Keep reading. I didn't relate to some chapter but I also didn't know how much I needed other chapters. I can see why this book is a big hit and now I'm definitely a fan of Rachel!

This book is life changing! Rachel has opened my eyes on so many topics and on so many levels. I love her raw honesty and straight forward advice. I need this no nonsense approach to make me see that I control the outcome of my life with my own decisions and actions. I am not the 16 year old girl that was was hurt and abandoned anymore. I will be rereading this book over and over again to study and learn to tackle each topic one by one! Thank you Rachel for sharing your struggles to help us all see that we are not alone!

I was somewhat skeptical about this book at first. But with each sentence I keep identifying with every single word! This book gave me goose bumps, made me laugh, cry and helped turn a light back on that had gone off a long time ago. I didn’t want the book to end lol!! I will be reading this over and over again and giving it to my daughters for Christmas!

OMG! You should just stop reading the reviews NOW and get started on reading this book. It is simply amazing. Rachel speaks right into your soul. Literally, each chapter gets better and better with every page turn. I typically take forever to read a book. Not that I don't love to read, I just don't afford myself the time. This book was something I couldn't put down. I loved it and I find myself recalling things Rachel says in the book throughout the hours of my days. It's so real. So needed. So perfect. Buy a copy for yourself and share it with any friends you love, because it's just that good. It's been life-changing for me.

I have never been a "raving fan" about any media in my life until I read this book. I have given copies of this book to my sister, my mom, my best girlfriends, my boss, my GRANDMOTHER. This book should be mandatory reading in college because it speaks so much truth into the souls of women who would otherwise go on to live fear-based lives. I cannot say it enough: this book will make you deep dive into the self-growth space and challenge you to be the very best possible version of yourself. Read. This. Book. Or you know... keep living that half effort life, Pam.

I really didn't know Rachel Hollis until i saw her book everywhere. I loved her raw honesty and advice. I think it's a great read for all women, regardless of age. I now plan on reading everything she writes!

Rachel is a go-getter! This book is easy to read, will challenge you , and make you laugh. It was a fun read.

A friend steered me toward Rachel when she invited me to her documentary on Made For More, and I was HOOKED. Some people come into your life just when you are ready, and both was I ready for her validation and the feeling of solidarity regarding taking charge of my life <3 Her vernacular and writing style are clear, simple, but poignant. Love it.
