I really like the thinking behind that product range. I'm female but have been buying deodorant marketed at men for years, as all the products for women have an overpowering, sickly-sweet scent even if they're supposed to smell like cucumber or cotton. The only skincare brand I can think of that isn't fairly obviously aimed at one or the other is 'Simple' and their website has only pictures of women on.
Though there are plenty of types of soap that seem pretty gender-neutral.

Love the idea here. I couldn't seem to find anything online saying these products were suitable for vegans which is a great shame if they are. Would you mind copying the email reply they sent you here? (They're available at Space NK and Selfridges now.)

B in Superdrug have a new range of face creams and stuff that are all on offer at around half price. They are split by colour and there's a little quiz you do to find out which colour you are. I just bought the stuff for the old bags.

Sorry, just seeing this again. I deleted the email ages ago, though I think he basically just said it didn't contain any animal products and wasn't tested on animals.

Ok so my local Tesco has had a re-vamp and there's a whole new shiny cosmetics/toiletries section.

They had a Dr.Bronner's stand, a whole steam cream section and some other brands labelled vegan that I can't remember the name of. I've also noticed most of their own brand laundry detergents, washing up liquid etc. are now labelled as cruelty free/not tested on animals. Go, Tesco!

Just to add to my previous post, the other brands that had products labelled as vegan were Korres, Pacifica, Tisserand and a whole giant stand of Butter nail polishes.

Yes, I got one from Liberty and thought it as terrific ... it is so plain,
in the nicest possible way with only a tiny bit making my skin so non tacky
smooth ...
have yet to re-purchase but when in Liberty there is so much to distract
a person ...

I wasn't sure whether to put this here or in the Products In General make up thread but does anyone know if OCC products are in store at Selfridges (I see they are online) and able to test? Or any where else?

I really want to try a lip tar but the whole name being tar is freaking me out a bit, if that makes sense!

Yes Selfridges in London has OCC. Not a huge selection but definitely lip tars and some of the loose pigments. :)

Hi,

Firstly I'd like to say thanks to you all as I've learnt loads since reading over these posts. I haven't been as conscious, of all household and personal products bought and this is something I really want to be aware of going forward. (Oh god I'm using my manager's lingo!) Secondly I am way excited to go shopping at superdrug and am currently filling up an online basket and thought I'd let you know that all of superdrug's own brand products are buy one get one for half price atm and you can get £5 off a £40 spend. X

I recently tried Barefoot Botanicals face and body rescue cream for dry skin/psorasis patches on my face. I have really sensitive skin and a couple of sensitive skin moisturisers I used recently irritated my skin, so I have to be very careful. The Barefoot Botanicals cream does the job and is sensitive enough for around my (dry) eyes. It is expensive, but as I only use it for small patches on my face, it goes a long way. I also love coconut oil for both my face and hair. I use Superdrug dry skin lotion, Lush Dream Cream or coconut oil for dry/psoriasis patches on my body. I used Naked Sensitive shampoo and conditioner (and coconut oil) for my psoriasisy scalp.
