Think Dirty August Subscription Box: REVIEW

The Think Dirty Curated Beauty Box ($95 USD) is by far one of the best Organic and Natural Beauty Subscription boxes on the market. They are in partnership with Green Beauty companies that have a clean rating of 0-3 on their app, which makes it that much easier to make the transition to cleaner products in both the beauty and lifestyle department. I love subscription boxes as they make it a fun way to discover new brands for the fraction of the price if you were to buy each product individually, this box, in particular, had over $200 worth of products!

As you all know I’ve been on a journey to living a healthier and happier lifestyle. I’ve been swapping products I use on a daily basis and using the Think Dirty app along the way has helped me out immensely. I’ve become obsessed with using this app to swap out conventional toxic products for natural and organic options. For more info on this app and some more resources to help you make the switch check out my previous blog-post here. I am so grateful and super excited to receive the Think Dirty August Limited Edition Beauty Box, keep reading for details on the amazing products below! I am going to touch on the products I am most curious or super excited about. Comment below if you’ve tried out the Think Dirty box or let me know which Green Beauty box is your favorite! There is a coupon code for you lovies at the end so make sure you read through it all so you don’t miss out!

100% Pure Everywhere Sun Stick

100% Pure is on the top of my list when it comes to organic makeup brands and I trust their skincare with my sensitive and acne-prone skin. I haven’t had the chance to try much else from their brand. So when I received the Everywhere Sun Stick ($20 USD) I was really happy because A. it is a travel sized sunscreen… I’m obsessed with travel size products, they’re so convenient and cute! What’s not to love? B. it is SPF of 30 using non-nano ingredients and C. it is sunscreen, but stick version, which leaves no room for mess. The SPF 30 provides broad spectrum UVA/UVB protection with titanium dioxide and zinc oxide.

The formulation for stick sunscreens are infamous for their white cast. However, leave it to 100% pure to solve that problem for ya. This stick applies creamy and fades away after warming it up on your skin. If you have acne-prone or sensitive skin do not worry I did not breakout when using this the other day, and it is non-comedogenic

Ingredients: Zinc Oxide (2.5 %) Titanium Dioxide (8%) other ingredients: *Aloe Barbadensis (Aloe Vera) Leaf Oil, Argania Spinosa Kernel (Argan) Oil, Cera Alba (Beeswax), Calendula Officinalis (Calendula) Flower Extract, Helianthus Annuus (Sunflower) Seed Oil, Persea Gratissima (Avocado) Oil, Ricinus Communis (Castor) Seed Oil, Theobroma Cacao (Cocoa) Seed Butter, Tocopherol (Vitamin E) *Certified Organic Ingredients 

LUCID n Dirty Coffee Scrub

Lucid n Dirty is a coffee based scrub that is to be used in one to two sessions per week which in turn will help reduce stretch marks and remove the dead cells from the surface of your skin. The fresh aroma of coffee is amazing to wake up to in the morning, but I have to be honest with you guys, I don’t think I will be purchasing this specific scrub anytime soon. Going for $50 USD, it is way too pricey for my budget, although it does deliver as a great exfoliator it performs on the same level as my Shea Moisture Drugstore version… I also couldn’t find a list of their ingredients on their site which worried me.

Elate Clean Cosmetics

Ingredients: Mica, Iron Oxides, Ultramarines, Bambusa Arundinacea (Bamboo) stem extract. May contain: Titanium Dioxide

Although the elate eyeshadows ($18 USD) didn’t come in every box the ThinkDirty team was super sweet in sending me not one but THREE different shades! I am super impressed with how pigmented they were and how you can use them as blushes, highlights, or shadows. For my tan skin tone the shades were a little chalky at first but once it warmed up on my skin, it settled nicely. 

Cleaning Essentials: The Original Bottle

I was SO excited about this glass refillable 16 oz blue spray bottle ($16 USD)  that gives you a guideline in making the perfect all-natural, nontoxic homemade cleaners. It makes it sooo simple for you to toss the toxins and clean away using simple natural ingredients. All you have to do is choose a recipe, add ingredients to the fill lines on the bottle, shake, and you’re ready to clean! Every time you mix up a batch of cleaner, you not only are helping eliminate the waste of a plastic bottle (indirectly helping to save the universe), but you also avoid the shipping and production costs associated with that bottle and reduce your family’s exposure to toxic chemicals!

(description by ThinkDirty) Each reusable spray bottle has 5 cleaning recipes printed on the outside. These homemade recipes use naturally aromatic and antibacterial essential oils to replace harsh chemicals. The tile cleaner works well for whitening grout and cleaning tile. The wood cleaner gently and naturally brings out the beauty of wood furniture and floors. The bathroom cleaner is a great antibacterial all-purpose cleaner for not only the bathroom but any room of the house. Our ammonia-free glass cleaner works well on any surface that needs a streak-free shine. Finally, the powerful kitchen cleaner is the one to put to work on hard jobs, thanks to its excellent degreasing properties.

I’ve been meaning to go homemade with my cleaning supplies so this came in perfect timing! I will try each recipe out for you guys and post an update to let you know if the claims really do work!


Lumion Skin Oxygen Serum + HOCL

This is a lightweight serum (full size $38 USD) that is formulated to defend skin against signs of aging, softens fine lines, and aids in the reduction of skin irritations. This would be a perfect serum to apply when you are trying out new products, as the skin tends to get sensitive and irritated unexpectedly at times. Its ingredients are supposed to mimic the body’s natural immune defense system, interesting…. I have yet to try but am really curious to see if the claims are true! Will keep you guys updated.

Ingredients: Electrolyzed oxygenated water, sodium magnesium fluorosilicate, sodium chloride, hypochlorous acid, hydrogen chloride.

Spinster Sisters Soap

Spinster Sisters Soaps are produced in small batches using the cold process soap method.  Using a base of olive, coconut, palm (sustainable/organic), castor, apricot kernel and Argan oils, cocoa butter and fair-trade Shea butter will leave the skin super hydrated. This soap retains the natural glycerin that is produced while you shower, which provides added moisture to the skin! The 0.9 oz sized bar ($2.75 USD) is another perfect product to store in your travel size product pile…if you don’t have one of those create one! It will make packing for when you travel stress-free!

Ingredients: Olive oil, coconut oil, sustainable palm oil, castor oil, fair-trade shea butter, argan oil, apricot kernel oil, cocoa butter, botanicals, exfoliants, and essential oil (EO) or fragrance oil (FR). 

Rosemira Organics Sample Kit

Rosemira Organics uses Essential oils as their staples. The products are meant to moisturize, balance and support your skin’s natural capacity to regenerate and rejuvenate. They were sweet enough to put together this cute package for the ThinkDirty box, it includes an eye cream, hydrating rose toner and a repair serum. Can you guys guess where this baby is going!? If you guessed in my travel size kit then you guess right, hehe! I am officially prepared for my next travel dates.

All Products Included in Beauty Box are Cruelty-Free:

Rocky Mountain Soap Company: Tea Tree Deodorant
LUMIONskin: Oxygen Serum + HOCL (travel size)
