Design Sprint!

Lizzy Trelstad @LT_Beaker

My friends always text me helpless and confused from drugstore and Sephora aisles. With a database of skincare ingredient information already in place, it was no trouble to quickly sketch up a simple directory wireframe, making ingredient searchable by name, function, or product type.

Without code know-how I didn't know how exactly to deploy this database, short of giving my friends a collaborator log-in to my AirTable. So I turned to Glide Apps. In less than a day I shipped a simple directory app.

Now, you can look for chemical information ingredient or ingredient, or look at all the ingredients (and what they do!) product by product.

More significantly, spending a few hours on build has already saved me hours in replying to friends' texts about skincare products :) jk, I still text my friends, they're the best inspo for product build and development I have.
