I've asked this before I think, but can anyone suggest any male fragrances?

I only just found this out so it may not be news to anyone else, but apparently some Nivea products are vegan. I was having a deodorant emergency (well, trying to find deodorant for Mike and the wee Superdrug didn't have his usual stuff) and found a link that said they don't test or send out for testing on animals and only certain of their products have animal ingredients.

I believe nivea is sold in china. I may be wrong on that as I haven't googled for a while!

edit: yeah it is sold in China. http://www.nivea.com.cn/

Aw, son of a bisque. Oh well, I won't buy it again. Sorry for the misinformation!

What washing up liquid do you use? I don't know where to get one that's reasonably priced but not animal tested.

If I'm feeling flush then method but failing that Bio D is only a couple of quid for a litre so actually works out cheaper than a lot of others.

Both Co-op own brand and Marks & Spencer's own brand washing up liquid are BUAV approved and co-op states theirs is suitable for vegans :)

Can anyone recommend a good cleansing oil? One that rinses off with cold/cool water? I'm about to hit the bottom of my Shu Uemura stockpile, that I have loved dearly for years. It's amazing with my dry, sensitive and generally pissed off at the world skin. (Dear Santa...please make it vegan).


I have a friend who worked for Shu back in the day, so I was faithful to their cleansing oil for years as well, and had yet to find a comparable vegan substitute...
It's early days, but I bought the Superdrug B 'melting gel cleanser' yesterday, which is actually a cleansing oil disguised as a gel.
From the back of the bottle: 'Gently massage into skin to transform into a cleansing oil then rinse off with warm water' (though it seems like it would work with cool/lukewarm water too.)
I followed it up with their 'B enriched restorative facial oil' and my skin feels comparable to ye olde Shu days.
... Hopefully I haven't jinxed myself by speaking too soon, but I would definitely recommend it as something to try!

Can anyone recommend a good-but-cheap heavy duty moisturiser? I've had really oily skin for years but my face seems to have suddenly realised it's middle-aged now, and practically overnight it has become a dry, itchy, scaly mess. I am seriously broke at the moment and can't afford anything fancy.

LUSH Dream Cream ... unsure of the price but a jar lasts a VERY long time ... you might want to consider a facial scrub ... cleaning with a wet flannel can be just as effective in removing dry skin.

Oh awesome - thanks Dunebug! Will totally give that a go over the holidays. I'm using the Boots Botanics wash off foaming cleanser whatsit at the moment, and it's nice but not the same. Doesn't keep my dry, sensitive skin happy in the same way.

Does anyone know of a good anti-dandruff shampoo? My current solution (not wearing dark tops) isn't cutting it.

Superdrug do about three, I'm not sure how good they are but they're probably worth a try.

Somehow missed this - sorry! I might see if they will do me a sample - I have had bad experiences with Lush stuff in the past. Not their fault - I am stupidly allergic to a lot of "natural" things. But the dry skin is doing my head in so I am willing to try anything!

I use this and quite like it. It doesn't smell like tar the way some stuff does. And it seems to actually work, unlike the stuff from Lush.

I'd say definitely get a sample - although most people rave about Dream Cream my skin didn't get on with it at all.

If you go into a branch, they'll give you a blob in a pot if you ask.
I suffer from horribly dry skin, especially around my nose and brow and I use Trilogy's rosehip oil. Spendy, but I only get through about 2 bottles a year. It's a miracle worker.

I did try the Lush Dream Cream (they happily gave me as sample) but unfortunately my skin didn't like it at all. I may give the Trilogy stuff a try!

I quite liked the Urtekram Nordic Birch anti dandruff, it worked and didn't strip my colour out either.

M&S have 30% off their Australian Native Botanicals range atm. I used their shampoo & conditioner for the first time and my hair was noticeably better conditioned and my (psoriasis prone) scalp squeaky clean without irritation. If it agrees with me over the next couple of washes I might pop back and stock up while the offer is on. I've been having a lot of trouble finding shampoo & conditioner to suit both my scalp and hair since Samy changed their formula.

I'm really sorry if this has already been asked, but can anyone recommend a good shampoo and conditioner for greasy hair?

The superdrug one doesn't cut it, it makes my hair disgusting. I'm using the Australian native botanicals one from M&S at the moment because I picked it up half price, but wonder if there are any others?

I had dyed/bleached/wrecked hair for a good 14 years, and I've finally grown it all out and remembered how gross my natural hair was when I was a kid; it's coming back to haunt me now for being so unkind to it for years.

There's a new line called/by Sam Farmer that's sfv (just confirmed in an email). It's aimed at teenagers - the guy who created it (Sam Farmer) hated the gendered, sexualised cosmetics marketed to his kids, so he created a gender-neutral line. I'm not sure if it's available in shops or if it's only online right now.
