I got my lip balms this morning, quick delivery! I really like the mint one, tingly! The black cherry is a lovely colour but as soon as you puck your lips it goes patchy (half of it comes off top lip), it smells gorgeous though. For a day wear read the beauty without cruelty brush gloss is a better option for me (forgot I had it when I ordered the cherry!).

I bought one of the crazy rumors ones at VegFest. I have to say I don't love it - it's a bit too soft for my liking. but I use it because it smells amazing!

I prefer the formulation of the Hurraw, it's much smoother whilst not being as greasy or soft as Crazy Rumors. I had a weak moment and ordered three Hurraws last night in the three for £9.95 offer- I got Cinnamon Tint, Chocolate and Vanilla.

Ruby, I know this was ages ago but have you ever used this on clothes that have the "do not bleach" symbol? I bought some to get a stain out of a dress & it says not to use it on clothes with that symbol and, of course, the dress has the symbol. As far as I can tell my clothes *all have that symbol.

*this is not a scientific study I only checked 5 things!

Oh gosh, I have read about Hurraw, yay, I have to order some asap.

I love superdrug raspberry and strawberry shower gel, it smells edible.

I have very sensitive skin, when I moved to the UK I started to break out like crazy and mine and my husbands skin was peeling off. Some south african woman told me that the same happened to her and that I should add epsom salts to my bath. I rub that on my skin, its slowly improving. I have never been able to use a moisteriser before, until I tried my husbands superdrug's simply pure spf 15 for sensitive skin. Its amazing.

I love that their stuff is so affordable.

It should be fine, jojo - it's not a bleach in quite that way, it's more like a detergent booster. To get a major stain out, you might be better to pre-soak your dress with a bio detergent, then wash with the stain remover in with detergent in the wash.

Holy shiitake, Origins charcoal face mask is AMAZEBALLS!!! My pores were grossing me out, I figured they were so bad nothing could help but one treatment cleared those suckers right out! I have never had a face mask or a facial that has had such a massive effect. I really can't recommend this stuff highly enough to anyone suffering from enlarged pores or/and blackheads.

I am in love with Barry M's Wink eyeliner marker. So awesome!

Fezza, would that Origins mask work on the blackheads that have seemingly been a permanent lodger on my nose since my teens do you think?

If you can get to an Origins counter hana you can book a facial for £15 and if you buy something from them on the day they take the £15 off the purchase. You can ask them to try something for the blackheads. It did clear all the regular ones I have around my nose and they've been there a while.

If you ex-foliate, put a hot damp facecloth on your face for a while then use a good mask, it could help lift them out. You might have to do it a few times and then use a good toner to keep them closed.

I found these http://www.tigihaircare.com/consumer/en ... efault.asp

Love Peace the Planet by Tigi at TK Maxx. Most of their products are vegan but some have beeswax. I have been using the Cinnamon Soy Orange Straightener and defrizzer. Smells really nice works okay too. It was £5.99

Superdrug has some pantene pro-v style shampoo and conditioners, there were 4 types in my Superdrug and 2 were vegan, the volume one and the heat protection one. They're pretty good! Unlike all the other conditioners I've tried (apart from the co-op coconut and honey FRAGRANCED conditioner which I can't seem to find anywhere now).

I bought some of that conditioner, Holley. I like!! I used to like Pantene once upon a time!

I've seen Sleek Make-up in Superdrug a few times and wondered if it was vegan. It's pretty cheap! So for info in case anyone wants to buy any - some of their stuff is vegan and they don't animal test. From their website (I was quite impressed they mentioned vegan-ness, so many brands don't have any info like that on their websites).

Quote:
Are Sleek MakeUP’s products tested on animals?

At Sleek MakeUP we strongly believe in the safety aspects of our cosmetic products, including manufacturing processes,stability,microbiological testing, physico-chemical data and the safety evaluation for all products produced for Sleek MakeUP.

With regards to the safety and protection of animals , we confirm that we do not test any of our products on animals during any phase of the product’s development, and therefore declare that all cosmetic products comply with the EEC Cosmetics Directive 76/768/EEC that are not tested on animals.

Our products and vegan/vegetarian suitability.

Some of our products do contain animal derived ingredients and have been clearly listed below. Our kohl pencils do not contain such ingredients, however we advise that they are not suitable for vegans/vegetarians as they are produced in an environment that also use animal derived ingredients for manufacture of other products such as beeswax.

Products not suitable for vegans/vegetarians: Twist Up Eye Pencils, Eye Dusts, i-Divines, Kohl Pencils, Eye Drama, Ink Pot, Dip It Eye Liner, Dip It Duo, Dip It Eyeliner Mascara Duo, Glitter Dip It, Magnitude Mascara, Volume and Curl Mascara, Eye Brow Pencils, Glitter Pencils, Stick Concealer, Creme to Powder Foundation, True Colour Lipstick, Twist Up Lip Liner, Wooden Lip Liner.


I'm not sure if that leaves much but I might have to investigate next time I'm in SD.

blah, i hate when they do this! it's like, "we can't say whether this delicious-looking cake is vegan because it was baked in an oven that might have had eggs in it at some point. sorry, we're just trying to cover all our bases!"

I know, to me I think that's fine and would use the pencils. But it's annoying.

Another brand you can find in Superdrug is Beauty UK. I'm going to look out for them next time I'm in there - they have some shatter polishes on their website in different colours to Barry M. I don't know how good a quality their eyeshadows are but their pallettes look pretty cool and they're cheap!

Their website says:

Quote:
We like animals just the way they are and don’t think they look particularly good in makeup. Even if they did we still wouldn’t test our products on them.*

The majority of our products are also classed as vegetarian and vegan friendly (not that you should be eating makeup anyway but if you did you wouldn’t find any animal bits in there).**

* The nature of the cosmetics industry in years gone by means that many ingredients were tested on animals before they were officially approved for cosmetics use. For this reason we cannot guarantee that there are no ingredients that have at some point been tested on animals. We can however assure our customers that none of our ingredients have been tested on animals since we have been around (since 2005).

** Our eye pencils do contain a product called Lanolin which is a derivative of an animal by-product (a wax that is squeezed from sheep’s wool after the sheep has been shorn. Combo Eye Shadow palettes, New Lipsticks, Concealor, 3D FX Mascara and Extend FX Mascara contain beeswax (only the eyeliner part of the palette, not the eyeshadow

Ooh ooh also, it turns out the Make Up Academy products in superdrug are SD's own brand and everything is £1 each. I don't know about their vegan-ness but as it's SD I'm hoping it's labelled. I'll have a look next time I'm in town.

I ordered some Beauty UK stuff (a couple of e/s pallettes, a lipgloss and their silver shatter polish), I will report back.

I found this website too that a separate section showing all the products they sell that are vegan. I can't find the link but it's on my other laptop so I'll post it later.

(I've been on a make-up investigation mission lately!!)

The MUA stuff is not labelled as vegetarian/vegan, at least none of it I looked at in Superdrug today was. It is labelled as not tested on animals pretty prominently though.

TK Maxx has got e.l.f eye palettes and quite a bit of Urban Decay stuff going cheap. I also spotted Butter London and Color Club nail polishes. Scored an UD heavy metal liner for £4.99!
