Superdrug’s own make, in ‘Cosmic Purple.’ It’s the first time I’ve ever gone for this colour so results could be interesting! In the past I’ve had my hair dyed red and blonde, but never purple. What’s more, it only cost me £3.99, pretty good for a hair dye :) Superdrug’s hair dyes are the first ‘BUAV-approved’ hair dyes I’ve seen so far 5 months ago

and a bottle of ‘This Water’ (by buying one bottle you provide clean drinking water to one person in Malawi for a month.) They’re sold in the UK, I really recommend them!
EDIT: I’ve just found out that ‘This Water’ contains as much sugar as 5 1/2 donuts (!) So I will probably just donate money directly to WaterAid (www.wateraid.org) or PumpAid in future, and save ‘This Water’ for an occasional treat from now on 6 months ago
again a relatively tiny amount, but it all helps :) Another charity I haven’t really paid much attention to in the past which I will try to now. Apparently they’ve raised 600 million since 1980 for disadvantaged children- awesome :) 6 months ago
(the National Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children.)It might seem a negligable donation, but it’s still something. I definitely plan to give more to them in the future :) 6 months ago
..the absolute opposite of the guy at work.
I have been caught up in a Youtube creation VS evolution debate where someone is just being downright vile. I make no apology for believing in God and I have my reasons that I don’t mind talking about/re-assessing/refining. But this guy was the rudest, most repulsive guy I’ve ever talked to. No milk of humanity there, no trace of kindness. No desire there for an interchange. He just put my back up.
I felt compelled to tell him. But I doubt he will listen.
Shame that some people don’t give a damn about anybody else… 7 months ago
...is an inspiration. Such a great heart, warm, easy going, good moral values, treats women with respect and sensitivity, loathes the “playa” attitude, believes his purpose in life is to help people… so noble. You can’t help but be at ease in his company. What a beautiful human being! I hope I send similar vibes sometimes at least! 8 months ago
who support world peace. I know it might not be achieving anything just by following someone but I can only try. Anyone got any other suggestions on how I can help promote peace? I already give to Amnesty International but have to distance myself from the magazine cos it upsets me too much 8 months ago
about half of Superdrug own brand products are approved by the BUAV (e.g. animal friendly) and all (that I could see) of Marks and Spencer’s are, this includes their bubblebaths, showergels, nail varnishes, makeup, perfume and even sun lotion! Next is supported by Frame, another animal charity. It’s really great to find a place which stocks such a range of animal friendly products, I was making excuses before when I bought Maybelline foundation, but now there’s no need to, I’ll just use Marks and Spencer’s Autograph pressed powder instead, which will probably work out cheaper too (it’s only £4)
EDIT: Sorry I realise this is kind of repeating what I said in the last entry. lol 8 months ago
not ALL Superdrug own-brand products carry the BUAV (e.g. animal friendly) logo, all their showergels do but the bubblebath doesn’t. Marks & Spencer, however, all their perfumes, makeup, showergel and bubblebath is BUAV approved. You can tell which are approved products by this logo: 8 months ago
This is one of the best researched lists I’ve seen on the subject :) 8 months ago
...asking for me to donate money. I don’t know how they got my number, but I sure talk about them enough on here! lol.
Anyway, I had to decline really, as I don’t have enough money coming in (at least according to my parents, I wouldn’t have minded donating a little money.) Although I declined, them ringing me has inspired me to try even harder with buying BUAV-approved products… 9 months ago
‘The Little Book of Cruelty Free’ by the BUAV. (a free download). It lists all the companies that are certified by it as being animal friendly.The main high street ones are Marks & Spencer and Superdrug (own brand showergels, shampoos & conditioners). Next is also certified as animal friendly (perfumes and cosmetics) by the charity Frame (similar to BUAV.)
EDIT: Damn, just realised that the pic comes up so small you can’t see the company names! If you want to read it, google search for ‘BUAV little book of cruelty free’ and get your free download :) 10 months ago
Ok, so far I’ve discovered that most (maybe all) of Marks & Spencer’s makeup, perfumes and showergels are approved by the BUAVan animal charity, most of Next’s (maybe all) perfumes are approved by Frameanother animal charity and Superdrug’s own brand showergel is approved by BUAV. When I find more, I’ll tell you about it…You can tell if these products are animal friendly by the symbol of a rabbit jumping through stars on them, as shown here: 10 months ago
from Marks & Spencer. This UK shop, I believe most (if not all) of its perfumes are approved by the BUAV (and therefore animal friendly) and most (if not all) of its cosmetics too. You can tell its BUAV approved by the symbol of a rabbit jumping and stars on the back of the product, as shown here:
I will likely be buying a lot more cosmetics from Marks & Spencer in the future, now that I know exactly how animal friendly its products are
