Nice!

I got all excited when I saw a travel sized nail polish remover in Superdrug today but it wasn't one of the vegan ones. I might drop 'em an e-mail!

I was just looking up Miss Sporty products as I've seen a few pics of their nail varnishes and they look ok for a cheapo brand. It says they guarantee they don't animal test - we love animals... So I clicked on the contact us link to see if they're vegan friendly and they're owned by friggin Coty!!

Ooh, please share if you find out. I sooo want the MUA range to be vegan. I've seen swatches of the eyeshadows online and they look pretty good for a quid!

33% off elf for the next three days. Code is MAD33
(the alarming number of massive sales makes me wonder if they're going under - what do others think?)

I emailed them and they said that they don't actually manufacture the MUA range. They've given me a phone number so I'll try calling them when I get a chance.

RE ELF, I really really hope that's not the case! They said on facebook they're in the process of re-stocking, I think they're under-staffed and under-stocked at the moment - people were complaining their orders from the last promotion still haven't arrived.

Yet another sale code from elf - free shipping on orders over £10 until Monday. Code is STARUK.
(it's all starting to seem a bit desperate - I hope they make it)

Superdrug love. Their labeling has made my move so much easier. Thanks for having this thread so I was aware of the fact that I can buy (nearly?) everything I need (shampoo, conditioner, lotion, shower gel, hair styling products, razors, etc.) and not have to worry about it- just check the back for the "suitable for vegetarians and vegans" sentence. And the prices! So reasonable! And everything smells so good!

Also, Barry M! I finally got to try the mascara! I like it. I wish it volumised my lashes a bit more, but it doesn't clump, it lengthens, and it's really nice compared to Zuzu and other U.S. vegan ones I tried. It looks really natural.

does anyone know if Soap and Glory products are vegan friendly? I emailed them last week, but they haven't responded yet. A couple of their products look amazing and I am sure I remember reading that they were vegan a while back.

Hana, I think I emailed them a couple of years ago and never got a reply either, so keep us updated if you hear anything.

I like the Barry M mascara too, it is thin but still doesn't seem to clump with a second coat, which I find fattens them out nicely. I go for the one coat bottom row and two top row, to avoid spider eye,

Excellent idea! Today I plumped it up with a light coat of Zuzu on the ends of my lashes; it also darkened them up a bit, which I like, because it's [Barry M.] either a really light black or it's just so thin/fine that it doesn't appear too dark. I'll try the double coat tomorrow- thanks!

(I do love that it doesn't clump, don't get me wrong. I find that Zuzu clumps too much on it's own, which is why I'm not too keen on it.)

Maybe I can get my mom to send over some Zuzu if anyone wanted to try some. Not sure in which "care package," but at some point, if anyone has a burning desire for some... unless we can get it here and I don't know about it. Or maybe WF will sell it once it opens?

I sent this email to S&G:
Quote:
Hi there! I read about your products in Vintage Life Magazine and think they look awesome. However, as a vegan I avoid using products which contain animal ingredients such as lanolin, honey, beeswax and stearates and glycerin derived from animal fat. Please could you direct me to where I can find the ingredients contained in your products? Or even better, would it be possible to label products as suitable for vegans on the website or even on the product itself? Many thanks- I'm really hoping this is the start of a beautiful friendship! Hannah

Hi there,
As you know we do not test our products and ingredients on animals. With regards to whether specific products are vegan, the best thing to do is call Boots Customer Care number on 00 44 8450 708090 or you can write in to the Senior Adviser. Boots will be able to answer your question as quickly and efficiently as possible. They have the experts in house who deal 1st hand with the ingredients used in our products:
Boots Central Customer Care Team
PO BOX 5300
Nottingham
NG90 1AA
UK

All ingredients are listed on individual product packs. At the moment we are upgrading our website and as such we are hoping to have our new site (complete with product ingredients) live in September.

We hope this answers your question. If you need any more information about animal testing, we’d suggest you contact Colipa, the European Cosmetics Directive association, via http://www.colipa.eu.

Please don’t hesitate to contact us if you need absolutely anything else.
Kindest regards

Jess


Not sure what to make of this since I remember their website categorically stating that their products are suitable for vegans as recently as six months ago, at least until they brought out their makeup range anyway. I like that they sent me to reliable sources regarding animal testing and are very transparent about this, but it surprises me that they are sending people to Boots to find out about the vegan-ness. Feels a bit like they are passing the buck- surely they know which of their formulations are vegan?

Anyone know of a good hair detangler? Does Superdrug have one that I just didn't see?

I'll check this out; I hope it's (relatively) cheap. I'm poor.

I wish I could just use conditioner! But the curls! The curls! They need more than just conditioner! If you have curly hair and this conditioner tames the tangle, though, I'm willing to try!

It all depends on your type of hair/scalp, I found faith in nature terrible. Didn't condition and drove my psoriasis crazy!

Samy have some good vegan curl booster stuff - you can get it at Superdrug.

I might try that next. I'm not terribly impressed with the Superdrug "curl cream."

Eeep. I think I need a separate detaingler for this reason. I want to just get the regular Superdrug conditioner that is the same as the shampoo that I got and then get another product to detangle, and then another to tame frizz/help maintain curl.

It really doesn't take me as long to do my hair as it would seem with all the product I require.

Wow. Yeah, body chemistry is important. I have wavy, not curly, coloured hair that I usually straighten (if I can be bothered to do anything at all, that is) and the Faith in Nature makes it silky soft. I wish we had Superdrug here, because their products sound amazing.

I use the Samy shampoo & conditioner and they're great for my hair. I think I need to switch atm because my psoriasis is flaring up a bit, this happens to me after a while with most shampoos. If your curls like a bit of oil weight to hold them down it's a good place to start.

Meggs, tbh, I personally don't find any of the stores own brand hair products to be worth buying. They're probably fine if you don't have hair with special requirements but not good when you need a little extra something.

Meggs, I have super knotty hair and this thing is a lifesaver for combing it out! I don't know if it might help:

I've seen them in Boots or maybe superdrug but I actually got mine from Amazon.
