If, like Ellen Page, right, you’re vegan and also a beauty junkie, then you need to know about Skinfull Affairs on Exchequer Street in Dublin. It’s a very chic, salon and store which is full of conscientious products that do not contain any animal products or by-products, and have not been tested on animals.
Check out the manicures using Ella+Mila, a crueltyfree vegan polish. FYI, a lot of nail polish use fish scales to get that shimmery look, and shellac — which is a coating or glaze that may be found in hairspray, shampoos, perfume, mascara and lipstick — is derived from a resin secreted by the lac bug.
Also available are threading, henna tattooing, and skincare. Skinfull Affairs, 34 Exchequer St, D2, tel: (01) 616-9933, or see skinfullaffairs.ie
