I use a home made concoctions for tinted moisturisers:

Dull/rainy days: mixture of Lush's colour pots and Superdrug's deep action oil-free moisturiser. It's not on their website but they do sell it!

Sunny days: I use a combination of Origin's Vitazing and the above Superdrug moisturiser, because it has SPF in, and a couple of dots of foundation if I need some real facial support!

I'm yet to find a decent ready made tinted oil-friendly moisturiser!

WHAT? Why the fork are they labelled as 100% vegan then? I don't know what I will do because Samy and previously Head & Shoulders have been the only shampoos that keep my eczema at bay!

Superdrug have a new tinted moisturiser called BB cream. It has SPF 15 and smells really nice. I really like it. It's got an introductory price of £6.99.

One of my friends has terrible eczema and swears by Soap and Glory and Bumble and Bumble products.

Soap & Glory explain their testing policy in their FAQs and also list products suitable for vegans

http://www.soapandglory.com/faqs/

Re good shampoo for sensitive scalps, I use a Korres one (Korres Laurel and Echinacea Shampoo) which is labelled as suitable for vegans and I love it.

I have sensitive skin and eczema and I find their shower products make me itch, I think it's something to do with the fragrance :( Not tried any of the facial skin care though.

They do travel sized stuff and it's usually on offer on a 3 for 2 in Boots so that's a good way to try it!

Two of my friends have awful eczema and one has another condition that I can't remember the name of but her skin falls off lots, and they both swear by Soap and Glory - I guess it's a person by person thing! As baldtwitlion said, go for the travel ones, or email them to send you some samples - companies are pretty good at doing that. Faith in Nature sent me loads of their shampoos and conditioners to try so I can find the ones that suit.

Thanks baldtwitlion and Rachwins. Travel sized stuff to start is a good idea, and I might stay away from the facial stuff, but it's always good to have extra options!

Does anyone know of a vegan friendly fake tan?
Not the body tints from LUSH though, they make me more bricky red than brown :(

I'm not sure if this has been mentioned in here (I can't be bothered to re-read 13 pages) but Superdrug has a few vegan sun creams, and they're all on sale right now. They for sure have one for the face and an SPF 30 spray that are vegan (because I bought them).

Superdrug have a few. The own brand (solait?) fake tans are vegan I think and they also have a johnsons holiday skin rip off (the gradual one in a moisturiser).

I really like Superdrug's BB Cream. I've wanted to buy one ever since all the beauty blogs have been raving about them and there's is marked vegan. The light one looks like it's too dark for me but once it's on it looks nice. It doesn't give coverage really, it just makes your face kind of glowy. It's perfect for summer.

Just in case others haven't seen it anywhere. Lush worldwide are launching a big range of make up and nail polish which will all be vegan. It launches around 21st July. There's a big article about it I'm this month's Vegetarian Living. I'm pretty excited.

I noticed the Samy products are no longer labelled vegan but I am having a good time with lush products.

Has anybody else noticed that there are not as many Superdrug products are vegan? There are still lots of vegetarian but I feel like there are less vegan stuffs than usual.
