• Beauty Products To Use As Recommended By Think Dirty

    Now reading the title of this post, you might wonder what I’m talking about?! Think Dirty is an amazing app which tells you what ingredients are in your beauty products and how bad they are for your health. It also tells you what those ingredients can do to you health wise.

    I was checking out my beauty products I currently use that I have stored inside the app late one night and was looking at their ratings. I was still shocked at brands I thought used natural ingredients and how bad their ratings are. I was inspired to create a post sharing with you brands you should use as recommended by the app and their low ratings on certain brands.

    You can scan the barcode on your products or products packaging or you can manually add the information if it isn’t already in the Think Dirty records.

    Below are some screenshots of some of the products in my profile that I’ve scanned and use regularly and their ratings according to the scientists behind the Think Dirty app.

    You can download this app for FREE via Google Play Store and Apple App Store.

    I think any product rated 6 or higher especially in the red section should be avoided for all health reasons. It’s amazing to think that a brand that uses natural ingredients like Liz Earle, their products can have a very high rating to due things like fragrance and talc going into their products.

    Tropic Cosmetics and Skincare is a well known brand in the UK and is known for it’s natural ingredients and cruelty free & vegan products. It’s a great addition to add to your beauty vanity as they have a wide range of products to pick from.

    The company was created by Susan Ma who appeared on the 2010 series of The Apprentice. Lord Sugar fired her because she believed her company could create a £10 million turn over and he didn’t believe her. But she proved him wrong!

    Susan’s story started back in 2004, when she was aged just 15. She had created her first ever product the Body Smooth Polish in her kitchen at home. Then she began selling it on Greenwich Market in London. And now to this day her company has been awarded 34 prestigious awards.

    Honestly pHresh

    This is a new brand I’m looking to try out. I love my Rituals and Salt Of The Earth deodorants but they aren’t eco friendly so I’m hoping Honestly pHresh have some great alternatives. They have so many scents and types of deodorants to choose from which is great.

    Always remember, the harder it is to pronouce an ingredient or you don’t recognise the word – you probably shouldn’t be using a product with that ingredient in! Natural ingredients are best!
