Today, your smartphone is made for so much more than calls, texts and social media. You can keep track of your beauty stash and even try new cosmetics right from your handheld device. Simplify your beauty routine with these convenient and free apps!

 

Stash

Stash connects commerce and content in one convenient, user-friendly app. Stash syncs all of the beauty products users “like” and sends an alert when it anticipates you are running low on a product, or when an item goes on sale. In the app, users can shop beauty trends through product categories, Instagram images and hashtags.

Think Dirty

Think Dirty determines how toxic (dirty) or clean your beauty products are. Users scan a product’s barcode or search the app’s database of over 500,000 products, and the app shows a rating for each product on a “Dirty Meter” of zero to 10. Each ingredient is individually rated, and the ingredients’ uses and health impacts are listed. If a product isn’t listed in the database, you can submit it for review.

Think Dirty suggests clean alternatives to each “dirty” product, allowing users to purchase products directly through a “shop” button in the top right corner. Users can “like” products to add them to a list or add them to their “beauty shelf,” which is given an overall score on the dirty meter. Scanning products in the store and on your bathroom shelf is addictive—you’ve been warned.
