Hearing stories from people on what motivated them to live healthier and less toxic lives always brings us joy, and Huma’s store is no different. Similarly to us, Huma found it very difficult to switch to natural beauty products due to conflicting information and words such as ‘natural’ not being regulated.

This is what happens when two girls spend too much time in the kitchen together – they compete! Preparing avocado for smoothies, salads and other recipes was the first thing we noticed we do differently and we just needed to establish who does it faster and better. To see who won by speed, watch our video! It’s up to you to judge whose ‘technique’ and presentation style was better.  

Video: Think Dirty app – how clean are your cosmetics?

Think Dirty is a name of an application we have recently downloaded and wanted to share our insights on it with you. Using this app, you can quickly scan cosmetics you currently have on your bathroom shelf; personally, we ended up being pretty shocked by the nasty ingredients hiding in some of our everyday beauty products. In the video you will be able to see which brands surprised us the most and how you can look for alternative products. We found this app to be an amazing tool to help us while shopping for cosmetics and we hope you will find it handy too. It’s currently available to download from App Store for free. Let us know in the comments if you checked the app yet and what cosmetics you currently have that shocked you the most.
