I got the new Superdrug vegan stick lip balms. One of each.
The Superdrug kids detangler is vegan and smells like pear. I am excited to see how it works because it was nice and cheap.
I got the Superdrug Cherry & Fig conditioner, too. They were out of the boring plain one that I usually get, so I got the buy 2 for £1.75 and it comes out to being cheaper for the amount than the other one anyway, so I went with that.
I spent way too much there today... but I saved a lot, too!

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.

Ah! Warning! The blue stick lip balm is NOT vegan. I hope I can take it back. Beeswax.
No, Meggs, vegetarian and vegan are not the same. Look closer next time.

Can anyone recommend a brand of foundation that I can actually look at in a shop? Not mineral.

If you go to the Origins counters, they will let you sample things. Some of the Une products (at Superdrug) have sample bottles too, though not all are vegan.

Efcliz, I don't know if you've bought foundation already but I have just got the Smashbox 'Camera Ready' foundation and it's the best foundation I've ever used (pregan too!) and it's spf15. I found it in Debenhams. Smashbox have loads of vegan stuff. Some of the Clinique foundations are vegan as well (someone posted in the foundation thread in the Mall), I think it was the Even Better make up and another one.

holylopez...thanks for the tips about Debenhams. I've heard good things about Smashbox, but have never seen their stuff anywhere.

It doesn't say on the box, from what I found all their stuff is vegetarian but there might be some insect-y things so I checked for carmine, beeswax and honey in the ingredients. This was the most up to date list I could find: http://veganmakeup.livejournal.com/56775.html

ooh - that sounds good. I finally got around to using the Pineapple one from last summer, but I've gone off it and it smells too jammy for me now.

Just a quick shout out to the Superdrug coconut bubble bath and body lotion. Good enough to eat.

This may be old news but the baby Eco stuff in Asda is labelled as suitable for vegans. I was surprised as Asda don't usually label. I got the bubble bath and it's nice (if you like baby toiletries which I do!)

Yeah, I've noticed ASDA labelling a few things as vegan now. They now do an Eco laundry range, including liquid detergent and fabric softener that is marked vegan.

I got their cocoa and mint one a few weeks ago. Can't stop sniffing myself after using it.
I really like the raspberry hand wash as well.

Bourjois just confirmed to me that their healthy mix foundation is vegan. I only asked about shade 51, but if the darker ones don't have carmine in then they're good to go too I would think.

It's forking orgasmic.

The pineapple one smells a bit vomitty to me. It's almost nice, but then whoosh vomit smell.

Wahoo! I've been eeking out my last bottle of foundation for the last few months as I've been dreading the hunt for a new one that suits my pale and sensitive skin. Off to Boots it is!
