I like that when I search a product type (like eyeliner) it pops up with suggestions and their grade on the ecological impacts the products may have. However, possibly because few people know about the app, there aren’t a whole lot of options for specific items (like liquid eyeliner; specifically). It’s not the app’s fault, a lot of how they run are based on sonsumer suggestions, which is why I took off a star.
maybe because i’m new to the app buy so far i’m very confused by it, it’s not telling me if it’s vegetarian or not. it just has and green and red circle at the top.
