Do you ever wonder what ingredients are in your hair and beauty products? If not, then you definitely should! I was so excited when I was asked to collaborate with Think Dirty. So what exactly is Think Dirty? It is an amazing app that allows you to scan your beauty products and notifies you about the potentially toxic ingredients in them through their rating system. It is such a handy app because you can compare items as you are shopping and their rating system is so easy to understand.
I am a self-proclaimed makeup hoarder and I was so shocked to find so many harmful ingredients in some of the products that I own. Thankfully, the folks from Think Dirty sent me their April Limited Edition Beauty Box with a bunch of goodies that contains clean ingredients! I want to share what items I received and I have a discount code for you at the end of my post. 🙂
When I first opened up my beauty box, I was beyond thrilled to see this Biossance rose oil! The bottle that was sent to me is called “The Nourisher” but the name has changed to Squalane + Vitamin C Rose Oil since then. I’ve heard so much about Biossance from top-tiered bloggers and I was so happy to be able to try it. I really like how this rose oil has a fresh light scent and makes my skin firm and gives it a healthy radiant glow.
Another face product that I was gifted with is the Fitglow Cloud Comfort Cream, which is made of organic cloudberry and chia extracts. These ingredients nourishes and protects stressed, irritated and red skin. It also provides an environmental moisture barrier and improves your skin texture.
I’m a huge fan of micellar water and was happy to try the one by Erin’s Faces. A lot of makeup removers leave an oily residue but micellar water definitely doesn’t! I also like how this is gentle and doesn’t irritate my skin.
Azaleas Naturals is a line of handmade all natural skin products. I really like how this line contains essential oils and items that I can find in my kitchen.
Elate loose eye colour is made of natural minerals and bamboo extract. Some of my everyday makeup products are made from minerals so I am immediately a fan of these!
I really like trying different types of lip balms. This Urban Alchemist lip balm is made of natural butters and essential oils, which makes it very moisturizing. It also contains a hint of grapefruit and sage.
If you’re looking for a natural healing balm, I highly recommend Dr. Rogers RESTORE. I use it to moisturize dry skin. I even feel comfortable using it on my son since the formula is very gentle.
Last but not least, this laundry detergent by Buckaroo Organics is a safe product to use when washing your clothes. We all know that most laundry detergents contains so many toxic chemicals. Buckaroo is different and contains soapberry which not only cleans, but also possesses natural fabric softening capabilities.
