Natio is an Australian brand that has a lot of products with SPF. I've used this one on and off for years: https://www.natio.com.au/skincare-spf-s ... ion-spf-30. You can buy it from a couple of online retailers in the UK.

Their website is pretty clear on what's vegan and isn't (they even specify that the mascara wands are vegan friendly).

Re Soap & Glory....

I have to say they haven't been particularly helpful to me when I've asked about things before.

They have a shimmer powder that I can't see any animal ingredients listed on, but it's not on their vegan list. When I queried it they told me to look at the list.

Also, their FAQ says all their mascaras are vegan but someone on facebook told me that someone on fb or twitter told them the gold one had fish ingredients in!!?? So i'm querying that.

I am not sure if they are part of boots or if boots is just their parent but I'm having issues with boots at the moment too and they might be coming off my animal friendly list soon, depending on their reply to my latest email!

Aww this is pants. Boots have always been super friendly with me and assigned me a customer care enquiry number then followed up. S&G have responded to me on Twitter a couple of times if I've asked specific questions. It shouldn't be a battle to get the info every flipping time though :/

On their website they explicitly state they're suitable for vegans so I took that at face value

It's when you go to their animal testing faq they talk about how Unilever are putting millions into alternative testing... So yeah that's cool but what are they doing now? >.<

They do test where required by law, which you can see if you click the link to the Unilever group statement.

There's also this on Simple's website:

"The countries in which Simple products are currently distributed are: Canada, Norway, Hong Kong, Singapore, Malaysia, China, Australia, New Zealand, Caribbean, Kenya, Nigeria, USA, Cyprus and the Republic of Ireland."

Does anyone know if the bourjois flower perfection primer is vegan? I have googled with no luck and actually emailed them but have had no reply!

Yeah I literally just read that the they sell in China now (after reading a bunch of stuff about how they were still cruelty free!) which is a bummer.

Oh crepe! Now I have to find a new foundation. I hope what I have lasts me another while.

Where I am moving to has a lot of lime in the water and I'm a not so natural blonde. Any shampoo recommendations for shampoos which will stop it ruining my hair?

I've switched back from the more natural (by which I mean more expensive) stuff that I was using and I actually bought the bourjois foundation and concealer earlier this week because it's what I always used before, if I hadn't been trying to find out about the primer I wouldn't have even realised that they weren't cruelty free now. I'm not surprised that I never got a reply to the email I sent asking about their vegan-friendly products now!

Can anyone recommend a decent liquid eyeliner that comes with a brush, not a pen? I've tried an e.l.f. one in the past (though it doesn't look as though they stock it any more) and it barely lasted five minutes on me.

Gosh's extreme gel liners (they're liquid) are awesome. And they stay on! All the colours except the purple are vegan.

I'm a big fan of Blinc's eyeliners, they really do stay on as advertised. The fine eyeliner 'pen' (with a little brush/pen tip) is really good even though it is a pen which I don't normally like, otherwise I tend to use a very fine paintbrush to create a finer, more precise line as I find the brushes most liquid eyeliners come with a bit thick for everyday makeup.

Does anyone know what's going on with Superdrug's B. range? They used to be my go to for cheap vegan makeup but the shelves are constantly empty these days and never seem to get restocked.

My Superdrug still seems to have the skincare range but the make-up stand has been almost empty for ages - just brushes and sponges, but no make-up at all. I did ask one of the sales-assistants but she didn't seem to know and brushed me off rather (to be fair it was a very busy Saturday and she was probably run off her feet).

Last time I went to buy a B product, everything was marked down super cheap and I was worried they were discontinuing it, but I asked a woman who worked there and she said it was being rebranded/repackaged/whatever you want to call it.

That's what I heard, but the one in my city has been pretty much empty for months and months now. You'd think they'd not leave that big a gap.

Yeah, that's a good point. It must have been at least a couple of months ago that this occurred, now I think about it. I just haven't looked since because I haven't needed any makeup.

I've heard that it's coming back in February. Crossing my fingers for this!

I have been using Fit Pit deodorant for a few months now and it's really brilliant, can't recommend it highly enough. You can buy it direct online, the only shop I've seen it is in HiSBe is Brighton. (I use the 'man' one - just in case it is stronger / works better.)
