Think Dirty's App - The Best & Worst Thing to Happen to Your Bathroom

I'm going to ruin your life and make it so much better all in one swoop - by introducing you to the Think Dirty App I am putting you on a road (and a black hole - sorry!) that will have you scanning every barcode in your bathroom and entering every skincare item you've ever put on your face.  You will groan with annoyance when favorite products are "in the red" and let out a yelp of happiness when they're "in the green".  Here's how it works:

After downloading the free Think Dirty App (avail on Apple, soon to be on Android) consumers scan the barcode for or type in the name of a beauty product - haircare, makeup, skincare, bath/body, etc. - and if enough folks have looked up that same product it will have been added to Think Dirty's database.  Companies can also have their products added (after running their ingredient decks through the third party) if they'd like to share their ratings with the public.

Think Dirty tells you how the product ranks in three categories
  • Carcinogenicity
  • Developmental and Reproductive Toxicity
  • Allergies and Immunotoxicities

You get an ingredient list by "color" and you can click on each ingredient which links to studies that tell you why it's getting a Green (0-3), Yellow (4-7) or Red (8-10) Rating and then you can make your decision of whether that makes it a make or break situation for you.  

For example, I love Carol's Daughter Monoi Hair Mask and it gets a 9 (red - bad!) because of the added fragrance which is a 9 and then some so-so ingredients that are in yellow.  Now, I love that fragrance and I'm washing it out of my hair, not leaving it on my skin so I'm totally fine with it.  If it were a skincare item, like the Coppertone Water Babies that I used to wear as I assumed stuff targeting babies would be healthy (wrong!), with other ingredients I don't like, or if it had fragrance and it was skincare, then that would make me cut it.  So, you kind of have to decide what your "line" is and then purchase differently next time which is super easy as most of the products on the app have a "Shop" option where you can purchase them online.

But I love the app because I feel like it gives you education and information - and I don't want it to come from a fear-based place but an "oh, I didn't know that.  Next time I will purchase something different" type of place.  And you can literally scan stuff at the store!!  

So, how does Erin's Faces stack up???  At this moment I've got my skincare listed so here's how it shakes out - see how your favorite products fare!  If you have a fave please head over to Think Dirty and "like it" :) -

Girl Crush - Tony Award Beauty 2015

The Tony Awards were last night (yay!!) and there was so much pretty happening on the red carpet - though I have to be honest that the internet is full of pictures of beautiful women who attended the Tony Awards but have nothing to do with American Theatre, so I tried to keep it to women who are IN the theatre so here we go - 

Bold Lips:

Chita Rivera's (The Visit) bold red lip matched her dress and wrap

Gretchen Mol (Disgraced) was giving you a classic brick lip

I loved Vanessa Hudgens' (Gigi) Heidi braid and tomato lip

Leann Cope (An American in Paris) danced BEAUTIFULLY and wore a berry lip on the carpet

Elizabeth Moss' (The Heidi Chronicles) whole situation made me so happy - she just looked like spring and flowers and pink - loved!

Lisa Kron (Fun Home) had beautiful skin and a berry lip 

Patricia Clarkson (The Elephant Man) pulled the red from her dress in her lip choice

I thought Ruth Wilson's (Constellations) choice of wearing a fuchsia dress and pairing it with a red lip was a fun one

Lydia Leonard (Wolf Hall) had immaculate skin and a berry lip 

I LOVED Geneva Carr's (Hand of God) whole look - hair, makeup, dress - the whole nine

Victoria Clark (Gigi) looked like a movie star with her honey hair, deep lip and navy dress - gorgeous!

Fun Eyeliner:

Patina Miller (formerly in Pippin) went with a clean face with a thicker liner and lashes

Amanda Seyfried (The Way We Get By) also had clean skin and fully rimmed eyes that made her blue eyes pop

Annaleigh Ashford (You Can't Take it With You) looked SO PRETTY!  Winged liner, glowy skin, nude lip - I loved it


I appreciate that Sutton Foster always is true to her aesthetic of being natural but polished

And Bernadetter Peters is 68 ya'll - USE YOUR SUNSCREEN and you too can look like this

Carey Mulligan (Skylight) went for a soft lip shade that pulled from her dress color

Helen Mirren (The Audience) always looks gorgeous and her watermelon lip with a pink cheek was perfect with her white dress 

Jeanine Tesori (Fun Home) looked like a beachy bronzey natural beauty on the red carpet

She won!!!  Kelli O'Hara (The King and I) always goes classic but did do a heavier eyeliner than usual and I thought she looked stunning.

I thought Kristin Chenowith (On the Twentieth Century) looked so pretty in her silver dress and natural makeup

Laura Osnes had a beautiful raspberry lip

Don't you love this face?! Sydney Lucas (Fun Home) wore age appropriate makeup for her first Tony nomination

And Ruthie Ann Miles (The King and I) gave you a soft smoky with a contoured cheek - yes please!
