Hi! I’m Michelle, and I’m here to help you figure out what beauty products are worth buying, and which ones aren’t, using science!
I’m a 30-something science educator with a PhD in chemistry, based in Sydney, Australia. I started Lab Muffin a bit over six years ago, frustrated that the beauty blogosphere didn’t have enough easy-to-understand explanations of the science behind beauty products.
I firmly believe that anyone can understand the science behind skincare and beauty, and if you can’t, it’s not your fault – it’s the fault of the person doing the talking (and sometimes, they’re trying to bamboozle you into believing them!).
I am pro: science, healthy skepticism, honesty, transparency, money well spent, chocolate, bunnies, chocolate bunnies, sunscreen
I am anti: fear-mongering, hype, one-size-fits-all, “detoxing”
