This might be old news, but there's a Superdrug outlet store on eBay. There's obviously a bunch of different stuff, but there's some cheap B. makeup and the like. I have some plum eyeliner by B. that I love, but they discontinued it, and I just managed to get 5 of them in this outlet store for £1 each, which will probably last me like 10 years! Free postage, as well.

awesome, thanks :)

Need hair products recommended.... I was meant to be gradually going from mid brown to blonde over a few months but thanks to anxiety making me run extra hot I basically jumped a few treatments and went from mid brown to dark blonde in 10minutes.

I need recommendations for shampoos that will keep my hair from going all sorts of weird colours (lots of iron in my water supply), conditioners, protection from heat from hairdryer and straighteners, etc. The more reasonable priced the better as my pay is pathetic at the moment. I'm also going to be in the uk next week so will have greater access to places that sell stuff.

Thanks in advance!

Yeah to stop it going brassy or yellow you'll want a toning shampoo, usually they're purple or silvery in colour.

PRO:VOKE Touch of silver are a UK company and don't sell to China, not all of their products are vegan but the ones that aren't are listed on their site on the FAQ's. The regular shampoo and conditioner are fine, it's the intensive conditioner that isn't vegan (and some other sprays etc.)

You can buy it in Boots.

Lee Stafford make a purple shampoo & conditioner too that's vegan. You can get that in Boots. I'd also recommend their heat protector.

I have my hair bleached (highlighted) and I've noticed the condition is better since using argan oil in it after I wash it, and not heat styling it very often.

Pro:voke was in my local chemist (which is tiny) so I got the purple shampoo. Will get the argon oil and heat spray in boots during the week.

Looking for conditioner recommendations too as the one I got in the health shop is priced enough and I'm on very little pay for the next 2 months.

Directions silver conditioner tones down brassiness and it £3 with free p&p on ebay - http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/LA-RICHE-DIRE ... 4sGMXJWszQ

Maria Nila do a silver conditioner, available at Sally's . Probably a bit pricey for you at the moment but someone else might be interested. http://www.sallyexpress.com/maria-nila- ... pcare1423/
There is also this blonde conditioner but I haven't tried it.

Has anyone tried anything from Laidbare? Here is their website: http://www.touchmyface.co.uk

I ordered the spot cream and eye cream after seeing them on the Holland & Barrett website, and was wondering if anyone else has tried them?

I've had a few things, a few moisturisers and face washes. I like them okay but I'm not very good at judging that sort of stuff. (I think I got mine in TK Maxx.)

Does anyone know of a moisturiser stick, like a lipbalm but bigger? A cursory Google just seems to turn up a Body Shop cocoa butter thing and some moisturising sun-screens.

I know Lush make massage-type solid bars but ideally I'd like something that absorbs a bit better and comes with an applicator since I want to be able to apply without getting it on my hands necessarily (e.g. when I'm at a shared work desk where other people might not appreciate a lotion-smeared desk).

E.l.f do a moisturiser stick

http://www.eyeslipsface.co.uk/studio/face/tools/daily_moisture_stick?&gclid=CJ39g5jQq8sCFYIK0wodvUkD7g

I can't vouch for it's efficacy, but that's the only one I know of.

Does anyone have a decent place to get leathery belts from that don't warp and fall apart?

Cheers, I'll have a look next time I'm in Brighton. I really don't like going on their shop as they used to be really unfriendly, but that was ten years ago and I'm a grown-up so I can do this...

In the meantime, it turns out sainsburys do them.

I had a bad experience with them not long ago too. They charged me for some shoes, then forgot about the order so the funds eventually popped back into my account 2 weeks later and I had no contact from them at all. They were super rude when I contacted them and they said it was because they were busy over Christmas though I made the order in February. Bit poop :/

Does anyone know of a (face) moisturiser with an spf of more than 15? I try not to tan, so 15 doesn't really cut it. When it gets really hot, I've taken to putting regular sunscreen on my face, but it's a bit on the greasy side.....

Depending on how you feel about the parent company issue, Body Shop have a Vitamin C SPF30 moisturiser http://www.thebodyshop.co.uk/shop-by-range/vitamin-c/vitamin-c-daily-moisturiser-spf30.aspx it's on a vegan list here https://isitveganuk.wordpress.com/2015/07/29/the-body-shop-vegan-product-list/

There's also a SPF50 one from Soap & Glory. It's not on their list (http://www.soapandglory.com/faqs#faq19) but I'm not sure if that is entirely up to date. I can't see anything in the ingredients (AFAIK they use vegetable glycerin) but you might want to check. They always respond to me on Twitter. http://www.boots.com/en/Soap-Glory--Make-Yourself-Youthful--Sunshield-Superfluid--SPF50-_1438035/

There's a SPF25 from Origins, but they do sell in China - ingredients in the FAQ here; they say the only animal products they use are honey and beeswax (not in this product) http://www.sephora.com/a-perfect-world-spf-25-age-defense-moisturizer-with-white-tea-P297515

Of course the Lush SPF30 one has honey in, GAH.

I'm currently using Simple moisturiser with SPF30 http://www.simple.co.uk/our-products/pr ... pf-30.html

I might try that Soap&Glory one when that runs out, would love a SPF50 one! I'm so paranoid about sun exposure >.<

Simple animal test, since Unilever got their evil hands on it. I was really bummed out when I found out :/

Thank you, jenny!

I like the look of that Soap & Glory one... I'm going to Tweet them re its vegan suitability and I'll let you know what they say.

Oh that really sucks =/
I just assume that when they say their products are suitable for vegans, you know, they actually ARE suitable >.<
Guess I'm on the lookout for a new spf moisturiser too >.<

I know they say 'no animal ingredients' but I don't think they are explicit about whether vegan-friendly. The statement on their website is purposefully vague. Unilever are truly evil :/

From Soap & Glory.... "We cant claim it is suitable for vegans - so sorry for any disappointment caused"

Not exactly sure what that means, but I guess I'll be avoiding that one!

Hmm how odd, they are usually more helpful! Did you ask if the glycerin was vegetable based? I find that being really specific helps. I'll ask too and maybe they'll look into it properly!

I can't spot any other ingredients that might be from an animal source.

Unless they have a really strict testing policy, I thought that it could be some of the more sciencey sunscreen ingredients had been tested past their cut off date or something. But, that was total speculation. I don't know much about Soap & Glory as I've never used their products before....

Possibly I was just too vague as I just asked if it contained any non-vegan ingredients, or something similar. Maybe I'll ask them to clarify!
