CLEAN BEAUTY part 1 - the 80/20 rule

What is this? A break from the cooking crusade? Why yes, my favorite reader, it is. I made a New Year’s resolution to clean up my beauty routine and I thought it would be fun to document the process here…and it would probably help keep me accountable. And who doesn’t love a little resolution accountability, eh?!

Long story short, I have no idea how to “do makeup.” Like, I still apply foundation with my fingers. I have been given a lot of makeup from brands as gifts or testers from various campaigns and mostly I have to watch YouTube videos to figure out what to do with it (like wtf is this whole “baking” technique?!) and a lot of it ends up just sitting in bins under the bathroom sink. This winter I went down a war path  (it is currently still happening) to purge our house of all the extra shit we have laying around. No closet, cabinet, drawer, or shelf is safe from my rampage. And that brings us to todays post – clean beauty.

We are all obsessed with ingredients in our food and it is pouring over into what we put on our skin. After spending a good 12 hours researching ingredients for this post, I can say with utter certainty that my beauty routine is about to get a whole lot cleaner. No more shark fats, parabens, guano (ie bat poop) phthalates, or other unpronounceable mystery ingredients are going on this skin any time soon.

Below I take a look at every beauty product that I own and rate it based on EWG & Think Dirty’s clean ingredient rating system. Both are free apps and both have pros and cons, but I like them and think when used together they paint a pretty good picture of what you are working with. The goal is to get 80% of my beauty products to have a clean rating (0-3 on both Think Dirty’s & EWG’s scale) while the other 20% can be in the 50/50 range. I know, I know, why not just go all the way? Who knows, maybe I will, but I have got to be honest, there are some really shitty clean mascaras out there, so I am leaving a little wiggle room.

Each product has a rating and a verdict, and all the products are tallied up at the end. Ideally, I want to switch these out over the next couple of months and do a little monthly recap on what works, what doesn’t, and progress made – what do you think?! Here’s to cutting out the clutter and cleaning up our act!

PERFUME:

COMMODITY:

Delicious, smokey, moody, and ooh so mysterious – I do love the fragrance wardrobe Commodity has built. That being said, how do they stand up to our dirty test? According to an interview with Commodity co-founders, their fragrance ingredients are sustainably sourced and paraben, phthalate, gluten free, and cruelty free. Since bringing on a new director in 2016, they have migrated their fragrances to become more sustainable and clean whenever possible…so do with that information what you will.

Think Dirty: n/a

EWG: n/a

VERDICT: clean!

PHLUR: 

My first “clean” fragrance and I AM OBSESSED. They don’t use harmful ingredients, are cruelty-free, proceeds from every fragrance go back to organizations committed to conservation, and they even have sustainable packaging. Read all about their story here. PLUS, they are based in my old stomping ground, Austin, TX, so I have en extra special love for them.

DESIGNER SAMPLES:

I love these little guys because they are great to throw in a gym bag, purse, or travel bag and voila! You’ve got options that won’t weigh you down or get you stuck in the TSA line. BUUUUUT, after reading all about how fragrances are some of the dirtiest products out there…I am rethinking my love. After a little research, I discovered that perfume ingredients are protected under the U.S. Fair Packaging and Label Act because they are considered trade secrets, and thus, do not need to be disclosed – lovely.

There is a ton of literature on perfumes and fragrances, all of which are a quick Google search away – so read at your leisure. That being said, I will be ditching these little guys and swapping them out for something much cleaner.

FACE:

VICHY Normaderm:

I read about this face wash in an Into the Gloss article about French girl skin care and was like, mmm yes please. But after a quick ingredient scan, my yes please has become a NO THANK YOU! According to EWG, this product poses a moderate concern for ingredient safety. While it rates a 9 (10 being the worst) on Think Dirty’s Dirty Meter for “Developmental & reproductive toxicity.” YIKES.

Think Dirty: 9/10

EWG: 4/10

VERDICT: Not clean

BIO-OIL:

I picked this up at Target after reading about how it helps reduce scars and have honestly, never really used it. It just seemed really oily…which, yes I know it was oil, but it was like thick oil…any way, I didn’t use it and turns out, that was probably for the best. According to Think Dirty’s Dirty Meter, this product rates a 9/10 due to fragrance and posses a developmental & reproductive toxicity. no bueno.

Think Dirty: 9/10

EWG: n/a

VERDICT: Not clean

POREspective Enzyme Mask:

When we lived in Austin, I had the most fantastic aesthetician – Alissa from POREspecitve – and she truly turned my skin around. I literally cried on her table and she was wonderful and amazing, and if you are in Austin, I cannot recommend her enough. She hooked me up with this Enzyme Mask and while it’s not rated on Think Dirty or EWG, I’ve researched all the ingredients and they all come up clean and clear – phew!

Think Dirty: n/a

EWG: n/a

VERDICT: clean!

FRESH SUGAR LIP POLISH:

For these nasty Chicago winters, lip exfoliants are a must. While my trusty apps didn’t have ratings for this specific lip polish, the individual ingredients used in Fresh’s Sugar Lip Polish rated about 50/50 – half clean, half not so clean.

Think Dirty: n/a

EWG: brand summary is a 5/10

VERDICT: 50/50

ADVANCED CLINICALS RAPID LIFT:

So, I have no idea if this stuff actually works, but I like to think it does. It is an anti-aging eye serum that I put around my outer eyes and forehead (the back of the tube says you can) and I like to think that it helps fight the good fight against wrinkles. That being said, I might have to find an alternative option. EWG & Think Dirty don’t have any ratings for the Rapid Lift, they do however have ratings for other Advanced Clinicals products and they are straight up nooooo bueno. 

Think Dirty: n/a

EWG: 10/10 (based on other AC products)

VERDICT: Not clean

BURT’S BEE’S FACIAL CLEANING TOWELETTES:

As much as I would love to be one of those gals who always washes her face before bed every night…I am not. I am working on it! It is actually a 2018 resolution of mine (don’t laugh), but that is where these bad boys come in handy. They are great to get the grime off and act as a quick face wash substitute for when I just can’t. 

Think Dirty: 5/10

EWG: n/a

VERDICT: 50/50

BEAUTYCOUNTER BRIGHTENING + VITAMIN C FACIAL MIST:

So we all know that Beautycounter is a leader in the whole clean beauty movement, and for good reason! They have helped educate a ton of people (including me) on why certain ingredients are bad, why the government regulations are archaic and kinda effed, and they just put a lot of care, effort, and research into what they are putting in their products. And their Founder & CEO is a woman and I just really like that. This Brightening + Vitamin C set was a gift and I have to be honest, I don’t use this a ton. I use the oil a lot more, but the mist makes me feel kind of like…wtf am I doing? Is this what a makeup person does? Am I a makeup person now? Let that stand as proof to how cool and skincare savvy I am…

Think Dirty:2/10

EWG: 2/10

VERDICT: clean!

BEAUTYCOUNTER BRIGHTENING + VITAMIN C FACIAL OIL:

Okay, the oil – love this guy. I was using Kiehl’s oil but then I EWG’ed it and was like HOLY EFF THIS IS BAD and then I remembered I had this and was like OKAY I WILL SWITCH IT OUT. So that’s my story with this guy. It apparently helps with sun spots (don’t think I have those?)

Think Dirty: 2/10

EWG: 2/10

VERDICT: clean!

HERBIVORE BLUE TANSY:

Herbivore is an ethically based, natural skin care line that was recommended to me a long time ago and this is again, another product that I don’t really use. But based on the reviews, recommendations, and ingredients list – I absolutely need to! Herbivore lists all of the ingredients in every product they produce on their website (which is amazing) and promises that every ingredient is food-grade, safe, non-toxic, and basically clean af. None of the Herbivore products are on Think Dirty or EWG apps, but based on the research I have done on the ingredients, this little masks is in the clear!

VERDICT: clean!

SUPERGOOP! LIP SUNSCREEN:

I bought this for when we were going to Cuba and I am realizing that I don’t use half of the shit that I have in my beauty arsenal. I mean, I have used this once or twice (mainly while we were in Havana) but living in Chicago doesn’t really give you a lot of reason to bust out the ol’ lip screen, know what I mean. That being said, this is some pretty clean block, so I am just going to go ahead and throw all the other junk away.

Think Dirty: n/a

EWG: 2/10

VERDICT: clean!

SUPERGOOP! EVERY DAY SUNSCREEN (50 SPF):

Ditto above.

Think Dirty gives this a 5 out of 10 because of the MYRISTYL ALCOHOL ingredient. Basically, it is a binding agent that bonds oil and aqua substances. It is considered safe and a low possible carcinogen…

Think Dirty: 5/10

EWG: 2/10

VERDICT: clean!

POND’S COLD CREAM:

I haven’t used this guy in many months and after reading about it’s toxicity report, I can’t throw this container away fast enough…

Think Dirty rates this product as dirty as it gets because of fragrance (9/10) and DMDM HYDANTOIN (10/10). DMDM is basically a formaldehyde releasing agent (ew) and can trigger eczema and is a know carcinogen. Duly noted. *throws cream into trash*

EWG rates this guy as a moderate concern overall, but high concern for allergies and immunotoxicity. EWG states, “HIGH concerns: Endocrine disruptionContamination concernsIrritation (skin, eyes, or lungs)” So yea, let’s jut give that *throws cream into trash* a big fat diiiiiitttto. 

Think Dirty: 10/10

EWG: 4/10

VERDICT: Not clean

LIPS:

MAKE UP FOR EVER:

Yep, don’t worry about it, I threw it out…let’s not even look at the ingredients.

Think Dirty: n/a

EWG: n/a

VERDICT: Not clean

HONEST BEAUTY (MARSALA KISS):

As you might have guessed, I have this thing for red lipsticks. This is half of my non-red collection and it’s lovely. The shade is perfect for everyday and I love wearing it with big earrings because it is perfectly understated, yet put together.

Think Dirty: 3/10

EWG: n/a

VERDICT: clean!

NARS:

I have wanted to love this lip gloss for a long time, but I just don’t think I have the complexion. I think you need more olive in your skin for this to work, luckily it’s an easy product to replace with a cleaner option which brings me one step closer to the 80/20 goal.

Think Dirty: 8/10

EWG: 4/10

VERDICT: 50/50

BURT’S BEE’S (SCARLET SOAKED):

Okay, so what is the deal…I really thought Burt’s Bee’s was going to be a lot cleaner than a 5/10. Especially on EWG, which I am learning is the more conservative of the apps. While I love this red, I have to think about whether it goes in the ‘keep’ or ‘toss’ pile.

Think Dirty: n/a

EWG: 5/10

VERDICT: 50/50

BEAUTYCOUNTER (SCARLET):

Yep, okay, let’s ditch the Burt’s Bee’s and keep the Beautycounter. With a clean rating like that, I am all in.

Think Dirty: 3/10

EWG: 1/10

VERDICT: clean!

TOM FORD (SOMETHING WILD):

My wallet and lipstick bag (yes, I have a separate bag for lipstick…and yes it weirdly looks like a wallet) got stolen last year and I have been slowly replenishing my haul ever since. While I adore this color, it gets a nasty wrap because of all of the fragrance used. Which I get, because there is some funky stuff in fragrance ingredients and we are talking about lipstick here, which means you are probably going to eat it at some point, so…maybe it is not the best idea to eat funky fragrance chemicals. Bye bye Tommy.

Think Dirty: 6/10

EWG: 5/10

VERDICT: Not clean

SEPHORA:

Yikes, threw this one out. Also, do you know they test on animals?! woof. Consider it tossed.

Think Dirty: n/a

EWG: n/a

VERDICT: Not clean

VAPOUR (SIREN MADAM):

I just discovered this lipstick brand (thanks to a casual stop in at Credo) and am in loooove. Their shades are great and and the texture is creamy – j’adore.

Think Dirty: n/a

EWG: 1/10

VERDICT: clean!

VAPOUR (SIREN CHERE):

See above, big love.

Think Dirty: n/a

EWG: 1/10

VERDICT: clean!

100% PURE (PINK CANYON):

So I am digging this brand, but not crazy about this shade. I don’t ever really wear it – it kind of looks weird and fleshy with my skin tone. That being said, look at that freaking rating! I will absolutely be adding more of their hues to the ol’ kelp lipstick collection.

Think Dirty: 1/10

EWG: 1/10

VERDICT: clean!

HAIR:

BIG SEXY HAIRSPRAY:

Basically, if you have this, throw this out and never look back. Let’s not even talk about it…

Think Dirty: 9/10

EWG: 7/10

VERDICT: Not clean

DAVINES DRY TEXTURIZER SPRAY:

Well, I love this this spray but I couldn’t find it on EWG or Think Dirty. Davines has recently re-worked a lot of their formulas to include sustainable ingredients, which eco their commitment to sustainable packaging. That being said, the company rates between a 4-8 on EWG’s scale, so we are going to be conservative and put this spray in to 50/50 category.

Think Dirty: n/a

EWG: brand is a 4-8/10

VERDICT: 50/50

NOT YOUR MOTHER’S DRY SHAMPOO:

ehhh gahd. Well, basically this is a whole ton of really toxic fragrances all mixed together in one really funky concoction. Needless to say, this sucker is in the trash. Got any dry shampoo suggestions? Girl needs some help.

Think Dirty: 9/10

EWG: 6/10

VERDICT: Not clean

DAVINES NATURALTECH NOURISHING SHAMPOO:

I love this shampoo for cold Chicago days when your hair needs a little extra love. The formula is nice and creamy and it just feels like a mask for your hair and especially when used in tandem with the Nourishing Conditioner – it really feels like a spa day. And while it doesn’t have the best (nor the worst) rating on EWG, the concerns are mainly allergy related and not cancer — which is always a plus.

Think Dirty: n/a

EWG: 5/10

VERDICT: 50/50

DAVINES NATURALTECH NOURISHING CONDITIONER:

Ditto conditioner! Although this weird rates a point better than the shampoo…so there’s that? Maybe it’s a sign I need to condition my hair more?

Think Dirty: n/a

EWG: 4/10

VERDICT: 50/50

 

DAVINES SOLU SHAMPOO:

Okay, so yeah, I am going to go ahead and just throw this the eff out. I started using Davines because it is an environmentally sustainable company, but after some research, their ingredients are less than lovely. EWG gives them a moderate to high overall usage hazard and with ratings like these i am outta here. 

Think Dirty: 10/10

EWG: 9/10

VERDICT: Not clean

BODY:

MARVIS TOOTHPASTE:

I think I picked up every tube of this toothpaste while we were in France. They were in all the Pharmacies and I JUST COULDN’T HELP MYSELF! Look at them, they are so cute and so French! EWG gives them about a 4/10 with some allergy concerns, while Think Dirty gives them a 10/10 due to three fragrance ingredients. I would list them but they have about a million letters in each of them and honestly, the app’s explanation of the ingredients is way better than my paraphrasing.

Think Dirty: 10/10

EWG: 4/10

VERDICT: 50/50

AESOP HAND SOAP:

If you want your bathroom to feel fancy AF, Aesop is the way to go. Our apartment in Paris was stocked with Aesop and since I love anything and everything that makes me feel even slightly French, this was a “must have” when we came back to Chicago. While neither Think Dirty or EWG have ratings for Aesop products (that I could find), I can say that no Aesop products have parabens (which is a great thing) and their ingredients have been reviewed by the Cosmetic Ingredient Review Panel (CIRP) and found safe for use.

Think Dirty: n/a

EWG: n/a

VERDICT: clean!

 

AESOP HAND CREAM:

Ditto hand soap. No ratings found, but their ingredients have been reviewed by CIRP and found safe to use, so that is good enough to pass as “clean!” in my book.

Think Dirty: n/a

EWG: n/a

VERDICT: clean!

 

SMITH & CULT NAIL POLISH:

While EWG or Think Dirty don’t have ratings for Smith & Cult (that I could find), I have to give this one the “clean!” pass because their are 5-free. Meaning, they are free of dibutyl phthalate (DBP), toluene, formaldehyde, formaldehyde resin, and camphor – which are some of the biggest dirty offenders found most commonly in nail polish.

Think Dirty: n/a

EWG: n/a

VERDICT: clean!

 

BURT’S BEE’S BODY LOTION:

When I began dipping my toe into this whole clean beauty pool, I thought everything that Burt’s Bee’s produced was clean, clean, clean. After all, they tote that their products are paraben, phthalates, and petrolatum (SLS) free – and not knowing what 2/3rds of those ingredients were, I thought, well, yea okay…phthaltes sound bad, so I went with the Burt’s Bee’s option. But after looking a little longer at their ingredients list, it turns out that Burt isn’t as clean as I thought after all…

Think Dirty gives this a 50% due to it’s use of PHENOXYETHANOL, or in other words, a common preservative used in cosmetics. Actually kind of surprising for Burt’s Bee’s  – don’t you think?

EWG gives it a 50% as well, but for it’s high allergy concern due to their use of fragrance ingredients.

Think Dirty: 5/10

EWG: 5/10

VERDICT: 50/50

THIEVES MOUTHWASH:

Have you ever heard of this? It is a relatively new product in Young Living’s (yes, the essential oil company) cleaning line, Thieves. I was given their cleaning concentrate solution, toothpaste, and mouthwash as a gift, and truthfully, haven’t used the mouthwash much. Young Living claims that Thieves products are non-toxic, free of alcohol, synthetic dyes, and artificial flavors. And based on all of the research I have done, I have no reason to doubt the claim.

Think Dirty: n/a

EWG: n/a

VERDICT: clean!

 

THIEVES TOOTHPASTE:

Ditto mouthwash. Slightly different ingredients, but same clean concept.

Think Dirty: n/a

EWG: n/a

VERDICT: clean!

 

TOM’S DEODORANT (LEMONGRASS):

I have tried just about every natural deodorant on the market, some with more success than others, but I always have a Tom’s in my “back up bin” under the bathroom sink. EWG says that this deodorant posses a moderate concern due to ingredient safety and has a high allergy concern. Some of the ingredients tip toe the 50/50 line, but overall it is a good option for a cleaner deodorant.

Think Dirty: n/a

EWG: 3/10

VERDICT: clean!

 

MEOW MEOW TWEET BODY LOTION:

I absolutely adore this company. They are a small-batch skin care company that makes vegan products with pure, all natural and organic ingredients. All products are made with organic, unrefined plant oils and butters, steam-distilled and cold-pressed essential oils and organic and wild-crafted botanicals. EWG & Think Dirty don’t have ratings on them because they are a small company, but I highly (HIGHLY) recommend checking them out

Think Dirty: n/a

EWG: n/a

VERDICT: clean!

MAKEUP:

NEUTROGENA NOURISHING LONG WEAR MAKEUP:

This has served as my back-up coverup in my “back up bin” under the bathroom sink. It’s not my primary but it is also nice because it is a shade lighter than I normally wear, so it’s nice to have a slightly lighter shade for when my skin is really nice and pasty in those winter months.

So, overall EWG says this product has a modern concern for sun protection and  ingredient safety — which is maybe slightly concerning. And Think Dirty shows a handful of ingredients at 50/50…so overall, not the best, not the worst.

Think Dirty: 5/10

EWG: 4/10

VERDICT: 50/50

NARS BLUSH (ORGASM):

As far as the look of this blush, it’s stunning. It’s got a lovely gold shimmer in it & it is just stunning on the skin. As for what is in the blush…maybe less than orgasmic (sorry! I had to!) EWG doesn’t love this stuff and flags it high for allergy, immunotoxicity, and developmental concerns. Think Dirty on the other hands, hates this blush because of it’s use of BUTYLPARABEN – a preservative and used in fragrances. Also, I don’t know if you know this, but the problem with parabens is that they mimic estrogen and can cause hormonal disruptions…

Think Dirty: 10/10

EWG: 5/10

VERDICT: 50/50

TARTE FACE PALETTE (CLAY PLAY):

I adore this palette…well, as much as you can love a palette that you only use like 1/3rd of, but hey, I am just becoming a makeup person, so what do I know? Tarte products rate between a 4-6 on both EWG & Think Dirty and since I can’t find any rating on the face palette, we are going to give this guy a 50/50. Do you like my wildly scientific rating system?

Think Dirty: n/a

EWG: n/a

VERDICT: 50/50

 

L’ORÉAL VOLUMINOUS LASH PARADISE:

Okay, I know, I know, I know, this isn’t the cleanest product in my arsenal, but IT IS THE BEST MASCARA EVER. Truly! I learned about it from the podcast Fat Mascara and after hearing about them gush about it for 20 minutes, I went out and treated myself to this $8 mascara. Haven’t looked back since, just looked fabulous…okay, bad pun, but you get it.

Think Dirty: 7/10

EWG: n/a

VERDICT: Not clean

 

AIRSPUN LOOSE FACE POWDE (NATURALLY NEUTRAL):

Naturally neutral my ass. It’s basically loose toxins you powder on your face. I got this as a gift as well and apparently it is used in “baking” – which is apparently a makeup technique I am not cool enough to understand. Clearly, I am not missing out cause this dirty technique I can do without. Adios Airpsun!

Think Dirty: 9/10

EWG: 7/10

VERDICT: Not clean

 

ILIA HIGHLIGHTER (POLKA DOTS & MOONBEAMS):

I LOVE THIS HIGHLIGHTER! It is formulated without parabens, sulfates, and phthalates and I think they do a really good job at keeping the quality of a high-end makeup without including all the toxic mumbo jumbo. Truthfully, finding clean products that do the job as well as your dirty ones is hard. But if you are in the market for a highlighter I cannot recommend this one enough!

Think Dirty: 3/10

EWG: n/a

VERDICT: clean!

 

MAYBELLINE INSTANT AGE REWIND ERASER DARK CIRCLES:

I use this guy to help with my baggage…my under eye baggage, that is. Truthfully, it does a great job. It has a nice little spongey applicator and it just helps me feel like a more put together person, haha. Think Dirty gives this a 9/10 on their dirty meter because of the use of ETHYLPARABEN. While EWG gives is a moderate rating across the board

Think Dirty: 9/10

EWG: 3/10

VERDICT: 50/50

 

100% PURE MATTIFYING PRIMER:

Okay, so I was also given this as a gift and after reading more about 100% Pure and their company, I AM ALL IN. This stuff looks awesome and I can honestly say anything that rates at a “0” on Think Dirty’s Dirty Meter is worth a shot in my book. Have your tried it? I don’t even think I have ever even used a primer. For having a lot of product, I am a shitty makeup person.

Think Dirty: 0/10

EWG: 1/10

VERDICT: clean!

 

BEAUTYCOUNTER TINT SKIN:

So, due to my skin issues, I usually opt for a higher coverage when I am applying my face layer (don’t I sound like I know what I am talking about?) but when my skin is in rare form and looking lovely, the tint skin works great. It’s like the Laura Mercier tinted moisturizer, jsut without the shark fat (yes, it really does have shark fat in it) So…this is a keeper!

Think Dirty: 2/10

EWG: 3/10

VERDICT: clean!

 

BEAUTYCOUNTER TOUCHUP SKIN:

I just recently finished up my Neutrogena coverup stick and this was in my back up bin and so far it’s been great. It is lighter than my normal shade, but since my skin is a lovely shade of translucent these days, it is working out perfectly. Plus, GET A LOAD OF THAT RATING!!

Think Dirty: 3/10

EWG: 2/10

VERDICT: clean!

 

BEAUTYCOUNTER NOURISHING EYE CREAM:

I mean, just look at the rating…it speaks for itself. Apparently people are on the fence about eye creams – or so the internet tells me – but I really am enjoying this little guy. It makes me feel like I know what I am doing, instead of playing dress-up in my mom’s closet.

Think Dirty: 2/10

EWG: 2/10

VERDICT: clean!

 

BEAUTYCOUNTER DEW SKIN:

In the summer months this Dew Skin is a lovely little helper, outside of that it is not a mainstay in my makeup bag. Again, those spots are reserved for putty-like caulking that cover up my Casper like complexion. That being said, I can’t wait to bust this bad boy out when ol’ Casper gets a tan.
