Ve­gan Alert!

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 skin­ful­laf­
