The Pixiwoo girls seem to like the Collection 2000 concealer. (I'm not sure if it's vegan though.) Personally I don't love it but it's not bad for a cheapy. A bit more expensive but better (and definitely vegan) is the bourjois healthy mix concealer.

I really need hair help and I thought I'd post here as the need for the solution to be vegan friendly will be a given!

My problems are- very thick hair, dry ends (well, from about 3 inches down is dry) but greasy roots and dyed.

Now this was annoying but I could cope but all of a sudden I've got a dry itchy scalp that's a bit flaky, not dandruff on my shoulders bad but I can notice it in my roots.

I'm not sure what to do as I don't want to strip the dye out by using anti dandruff shampoo and the greasy roots make it difficult to tackle to dry bits. I loathe my natural hair colour so not dying it would make me quite unhappy.

Any ideas would be hugely appreciated!

KatyCarr I have a tendency to have an itchy scalp and I use Green People's rosemary shampoo. It also doesn't strip my colour out like many shampoos do. Washing your hair in cool or cold water really helps the dye to stay in too, if you can stand it.

Sarah-Jane Superdrug do vegan labelled concealers in their own brand 'B.' range. (I got B. Radiant under eye concealer to cover up a blotchy thread vein on my cheek but I can't say if it's much good as it is the first concealer I've used in years.)

I did not know that either of those were vegan! Thank you.

I will have a look at all three when I head into town tomorrow. Thanks for the recommendations.

Oh, it is mostly for under eyes. I tend not to use too much concealer anywhere else unless I breakout.

I got a concealer from the B range the other week. I've been having nasty breakouts lately and it seems to work well! Helps under my eyes too.

Those who've tried the B concealer, have you used it under eyes?

I've tried it a couple of times and I always look sparkly under my eyes. Which is bad, but I'm not sure if it's the concealer or just eyeshadow falldown (I do concealer after eyeshadow so I'm confused about it!)

I'm gonna have to try it again on a day where I'm not wearing eyeshadow.

Rentaghost- thank you, I will try that!

Gaietygirl- thank you so much for posting that ELF code, I've just ordered replacements for all the far too old stuff in my make up bag for hardly any money!

Not a problem. I'm hoping to put in an order at the end of the month as well :)

I have been reading this thread writing down things to look at when next near a Superdrug ... I was there this morning & walked out with a huge bag full of vegan finds ... who knew? I am just lazy & do not look at labels for skincare etc. so have been buying from sites on-line where I know their stuff is 'safe' ... I will now start paying attention. A very heavy sack of stuff for only $41 quid which does not buy much from my fav on-line lovelula site.

I thought I would recommend the foundation I use, (not sure if I already have.. but oh well!) It's called funky fresh minerals- animal friendly and vegan. I get it off eBay. It's a loose mineral foundation, and it's pretty awesome, I used to be a liquid foundation addict, but since I was introduced to mineral make up I can't go back to using the liquid stuff, it just seems so cakey in comparison. You only need a little bit so it lasts ages, and it doesn't seem to make me breakout as the liquid foundation does. The shop does a wide range of shades and whatnot, and also does finishing/base powders and eye shadows too. Just type 'funky fresh minerals' into eBay and the range should pop up. Oh and also you get refill packs so you don't have to buy a new tub of foundation each time.

I forgot to post this ages ago but I bought the Boujois Healthy Mix concealer and I love it, so thank you. It's perfect for under eyes and blemishes and a little goes a long, long way. When this runs out I will be buying the same stuff again!

I have their healthy mix foundation on the go at the moment and I'm really liking it. Possibly a bit light for some, but I like being able to see my freckles through my base layer :) Every bit as good as the Chanel stuff I used to buy (which is not entirely surprising as they're made in the same factory!)

I love the healthy mix as well (I use the serum one). It's lovely. No good if you need full coverage but the coverage is pretty perfect for me, most of the time.

I love Bourjois.

I might give their foundation a go when the time comes to buy a new one. I rarely wear foundation (usually powder and concealer are enough for everyday use) but I am not a big fan of heavy foundations anyway, it's too much of a difference from my usual appearance that I find it strange. Does it feel light too?

It is quite light yes. But if you prefer a powder, with maybe a bit of coverage, I just bought the NEVE Cosmetics Flat Perfection Foundation from cocktail cosmetics and I really like it. It looks like a pressed powder but it's a mineral foundation so gives a bit more coverage.

I prefer it to other mineral foundations I've tried because it's lighter and doesn't go cakey or make my pores shiny and more noticeable.

Right people, talk shampoo/conditioners to me!

Superdrug own brand (and I've tried their own label and fake pantene stuff) do not impress me. I can't find Tara Smith at my Tesco anymore. Samy are no longer vegan. Aveda are too expensive and I can't actually work out if they really are vegan or not. There is no Lush nearby and they are also pretty expensive. Superdrug are selling an argan oil shampoo and conditioner and I think they are by Proclere but I cannot find out if they are cruelty free or not. All of the other stuff people seem to recommend is not available in the shops anywhere near me!

I am having a shampoo breakdown!

Is there a health food shop you go to Sarah-Jane? Do they have anything in stock which might be vegan?

What kind of hair do you have? It might help to know which Tara Smith types you liked.

Faith in nature is pretty widely available in health food shops and places like Holland and Barrett - I really like their seaweed shampoo.

There's a new line in Superdrug called 'This One' (weird name for shampoo) that is labelled suitable for vegetarians and vegans. I'm using the nourishing shampoo at the moment and quite like it.

I forgot about Holland & Barrett! The only brand they had was Dr Organic (I think) and they had some vegan options so I got the argan oil shampoo and coconut conditioner to try. If that doesn't work I might try This One, which I agree is a super weird name for a shampoo!

I'm using the seaweed Faith in Nature one too and I'm finding it alright. No problems so far with it. I seem to be actually able to wash it all out too which is great since I always seem to end up with soap residue no matter how much I rinse.

For those who are OK shopping at Asda, they have a double-concentrated laundry liquid that's labeled suitable for vegans on the front.

Can anyone recommend a good eye cream for eye areas that are quite dry?
Thanks in advance :)

I like the Trilogy stuff. Good value as it lasts for ages - I get about 3 tubes a year. Their stuff is all cruelty free and eco friendly and most are vegan - the few that aren't have honey or beeswax and it's clearly written on the packaging.

Can anyone recommend a good cleansing oil? One that rinses off with cold/cool water? I'm about to hit the bottom of my Shu Uemura stockpile, that I have loved dearly for years. It's amazing with my dry, sensitive and generally pissed off at the world skin. (Dear Santa...please make it vegan).
