Gah. Both of the Superdrug stores I checked yesterday seemed to be mostly out of Barry M Dazzle Dusts. Limited selection of colours and some weren't even in stock or didn't have testers.

I'm a bubble bath fiend. The ones I regularly use are the Superdrug coconut, their mango and papaya and the 2 red ones. Also Lush ones except the glitter ones unless I'm not cleaning the bath. What other bubbly products do you love?

I don't take many baths, I get bored after one chapter of a book. But when I am in the mood, I love Lush's bubble bars (I also avoid the glitter ones, I don't fancy getting a glittery vadge!)

Have seen some details about the range on a few beauty blogs (Google 'Emotional Brilliance swatches' if you're interested or check the LUSH thread over in the main forums, someone has posted links). Looks like it's initially going to consist of lip glosses, cream eyeshadows, liquid eyeliner, a mascara and two skin tints. Cost wise, it seems like it'll be pretty expensive with most of it around the £14 mark.

Top Shop have just confirmed to me that their blank ink gel eyeliner and their black liquid eyeliner pen are both vegan. They are both fab eyeliners.

This is really good news as I bought it a while back to replace my MAC Blacktrack liner - most gel liners seem to be from Estee Lauder companies!

Superdrug have a new range of hair styling products - just about to try the straightening cream.

Also, LilyLolo have 15% off until midnight tonight (Thursday).

I have tried the superdrug curl cream and heat protective spray. The curl cream isn't that great, but maybe I just need to combine it with some serum. I've been trying to replace my Aveda Be Curly cream which I loved, since they admitted to animal testing but not found anything as good yet.

Ah bum! I knew I should have checked it out with you first, Beauty Queen Baps! - I'll give this straightening cream job a go on my frizzy locks and report back.

I was very excited to see the range and that is what vegan, it was just a bit disappointing. But I think the first time I didn't use enough and the second time I used too much. I am gonna have to try again.

Haven't tried the straightening cream so you'll have to let us know if it's any good.

I'd give it a 7 - good for the price, better than the Samy stuff, about the same as TIGI, but nowhere near as good as my pregan MOP stuff.

I use the straightening cream. It gives my hair a bit more weight which is always good, and I think it keeps it slightly straightener for longer, although that might just be wishful thinking.

I am cheap. I like Superdrug's own!

Actually I've tried a few since giving up my beloved Sanex and this is my favourite spray that I've tried. Sainsbury's was horrible, it literally fell off in clumps!

I also like the stick of Mitchum, I layer the 2. But I haven't bought a new one (and it's running out fast) because there is question over whether Revlon, who owns them, sell in china and therefore are involved in animal testing.

The crystal deodorants from H&B, etc. work for me. A bit expensive maybe, but they last forever it seems.

Second the crystal deodorants. I've had mine for at least a year and It's nowhere near finished! Definitely works too.

Can anybody recommend a good, non-greasy volumising hair product? My hair has a tendency to be flat and boring and most of the mousses and hairsprays I've tried just give me greasy-looking hair which is STILL FLAT. I want to be a hair hopper, goddamit.

Superdrug have a new line of skin care products called Naturally Radiant. They're currently 50% off - I got the hot cloth cleanser and like it enough for £3.

I also really like the Inecto Coconut hair care stuffs. It doesn't hate my hair and is less than £2 a bottle. The conditioner smells a bit like scalded milk pudding, but it doesn't linger.

OT: Scalded milk pudding reminds me of my dad.

Do they actually work? I've always considered using one but it seems a bit too much like rubbing a magical rock under my armpit.

The Lush armpit bars (or whatever they are called) never seemed to work and just left me with dusty armpits.

Just so you know, Tigi's animal testing policy is iffy. They don't test 'finished products' but they have over 200 ingredients and they they don't know if some could be tested by their suppliers, they don't check!
