Jessica Alba’s The Honest Company Partners with Target

05/29/2014 at 10:00 AM ET

Even in Hollywood, the start of summer officially kicks off the family vacation season.

And as Jessica Alba gears up for her gang’s annual excursion, there’s one thing the actress won’t be doing — asking for her daughters’s advice on where to go.

“I do not listen to my kids’ opinions. When they pay for the vacation, they get to dictate where we go,” Alba jokes to PEOPLE while discussing The Honest Company‘s new partnership with Target. “Until then, Mom and Dad are in charge. It would be Disneyland every day!”

Instead of hitting up the happiest place on earth every day, the family of four will be packing their bags and heading to their traditional retreat: husband Cash Warren‘s mother’s house in the south of France.

“There’s so much lavender and greenery, she has a couple acres out there so the kids run around and it’s really nice living that country lifestyle for a little bit,” Alba says.

What: Dyson 65 Upright Vacuum Cleaner

Who Tried It: Julia Wang, Features Director, PEOPLE.com

Why She Volunteered: Cleaning has become a “hobby” now that I’m a mom of two to a 6-year-old and a 9-month-old

I used to think I was really good at keeping house. Then I had kids.

Kids teach you so much – about love, innocence, patience … and how much dust, grime, glitter and all manner of detritus wind up everywhere.

There’s my free-spirited older child, who routinely snips construction paper into pieces of confetti and leaves a trail of tiny plastic toy parts around the house.

When it comes to raising her 16-month-old son Benjamin in an eco-friendly environment, Kelly Preston isn’t messing around.

From the organic food he eats (on the menu? Fresh spinach, carrot and kale juice, quinoa and scallops!) to his co-sleeper and toys, the new mom is a stickler for finding the most natural, toxin-free options.

“I’m meticulous on checking ingredients,” Preston tells PEOPLE of her never-ending quest for healthy — and yummy! — foods for her family, including Ben’s big sister Ella, 12.
