Meggs, the naked range is two for £6 in Boots at the mo. They do have a curl tamer as well as something else that I can't remember that I thought might work for you. As someone who has absolutely no curl in my hair at all its not something I've ever used but figured its worth a try!

Boots have the buy two get one free on those vegan body butters. A couple of them are a bit rank but some are nice, the body sugar is good.

Excellent! Thanks so much! I was looking for Naked brand at Superdrug when I happened to be in there yesterday but didn't see it. I did see Samy, though, and almost bought some of their curl stuff, but I just get so stinking overwhelmed by all of the products (in every store, from drug stores to grocery stores; I just wander like a deer in headlights); but thanks, I'll go in and check them out. Every brand seems to have like, three curl products and the products all sound so similar, I don't know which to choose! Maybe this one will be easier to choose from.

Has anyone tried using soap nuts to make shampoo? Are they any good? Any tips?

Does anyone know if the new Urban Decay mascara is going to be stocked in the UK? I have seen the other new range products stocked but not the mascara and I reallyreallywantit.

Is that the 2 step stuff that sounds like getting complicated surgery?

there's a two-step lash treatment but I think the mascara is just a one-step mascara. It looks amazing though!

Which mascara is it, because HQ Hair have a few UD mascaras but I'm not sure if any are the one you're looking for?

It's not the two step lash system thing, it's the new mascara that has the lash system potion stuff in it but it's a proper mascara.

This one!

ETA: I have e-mailed, I will let you all know if I hear back...

I have the UD lash primer, I brought it on holiday because it looked vegan. It doesn't have a pawprint on the website, but I can't see anything in the ingredients that's not vegan - so I need to email them about that too.

Ooh I wanted to try that, too. I hope it has a really fat brush.
But I am really really happy with Barry M. It makes my lashes look so amazing.

Urban Decay confirmed that their lash primer is vegan, as I couldn't see the pawprint on the website, but they say it's there.

It's not their fancy new mascara or anything, but I think it definitely makes my lashes longer than just mascara alone.

I didn't get a reply so I have just facebooked them in the hope that they'll answer.

I found out today that co-op do radox style bath bubbles, they're good!

Dermologica face stuffs? Anyone tried them? Apparently they are the best and they seem to be vegan (or at least the majority of their products?) but just wondering if any of you have tried them.

I got some of these, they're really nice. Had to replace a JASON body moisturiser that made my skin all red and stinging! My skin is just getting more sensitive as I get older, boo! The boots ones are ok, phew!

I've heard really good things about Dermalogica. They are not all vegan, but much is (and they're all vegetarian). There was a Groupon for an Oxford-based salon yesterday and I nearly got it but then just forgot about it. Anyway, I'll post if I end up going anytime soon.

Dermalogica stuffs are nice smelling and easy on your skin.

The new Barry M Lash Modelling mascara is stunning! It comes in a purple tube, has a really odd brush, almost looks like you are wearing falsies. It's not at all claggy (no brush wiping needed). I'm wondering if it's meant to be a rip-off of the new UD one.

Quiiiiiickk... my wedding is in a week. Hurrah! However, having been on surface antibiotics that have FINALLY cleared my up my acne-harassed skin, they have also made my skin look like that of a 40-year old. Tired and unloved. In need of some URGENT revitalising.

Recommend me some super sonic products.

I'm having an Aveda facial on Thursday (thank god for birthday vouchers) but I want to spend this week throwing products and money at my face to make it look less 40-ish, and more 27-ish. Or even 20-ish, if I'm lucky. Thankfully, my skin has never reacted to anything, so I'm not concerned about messing with routine with 6 days to go.

While I'm waiting for your reliable tried and testeds, I'm going to scour the internet about Aveda, Dermalogica and some other super stars. But I trust you more!

(Also, hello, for anyone I've not spoken to for a while. Wedding has made me fall off the internet a little. In fact, I've actively avoided the internet, because my mum won't stop sending me spreadsheets. Eurgh.)

I've been sucked in by Origins. Buying so much stuff tomorrow. Stop me if I'm wrong.

Why don't you try an Oatifix mask from Lush (it's one of the 3 vegan fresh face masks)? I've never used it since it's for dry skin, but it sounds like just the thing for you. And it smells yummy!

I've never had much joy with lush masks, other than brazen honey in the pregan days. Smell good, but little/no notable effect on my skin.

Oatifix was yummy though! I've tried it despite not having dry skin either.

My skin isn't dry (quite the opposite, in places), it just looks dull, blotchy, and weather worn! I want the sparkle back. Might try the Origins charcoal mask someone recommended on here to blast away my last few blackies, and then their never a dull moment polisher, unless there are any more recommendations?

The never a dull moment polisher is lovely. I could eat it. I have a serious Origins habit, so much that when I go in and they ask if I'd like to sample anything I have to really think hard about what I haven't got. If you get on their e-mail list you'll get lots of offers of free stuff with online orders.

If it's just dull skin, you could fix that issue with a good foundation, bronzer, powder base, etc. Honestly, I think much of the "age defying" type products are just hype.

Yeah, I have to say, that my skin isn't exactly an advert for all these products!
