  1. Another good brand to try is 100 percent pure. i have used many of their product and have been satisfied. The only product that has gluten in it is one of their mascaras. Customer service is super helpful.
  2. I know for sure contact - the Dr told me to be on a low nickel, cobalt if i could - i am not sure yet if limiting the contact will be enough as this is all so new to me.
  3. I have just been diagnosed  with allergies to nickel, cobalt, and gold. So now i have the reason that I have been breaking out in a rash all over my body. I just do not know where to turn at this point - I have celiac disease, a corn intolerance, and now i find more allergies. It seems nickel and cobalt are found in everything - food, jewelry, medicine, personal products...... Is there is anyone else out there who also suffers with allergies to these metals and can give me some guidance as i start down this road? Thank you.
  4. Corn Allergy

    Thank you for help - it did start out looking like pimples - or spider bites - not green at all. I am going to try to cut out all the corn - i am still eating the bagged salad which I understand is rinsed in a corn wash.  Does anyone know if the vegetables that you get in the bag that are microwavable are rinsed in the same corn wash?
  5. About a year ago I realized in addition to having celiac whenever i ate corn I became very ill. The symptoms were very similar to having gluten. I have since cut all corn out of my diet and feel so much better. For the past 9 months or so I have had very bad eczema on my hands (which I never had in all my life - anywhere). The doctors think that the eczema is caused from an allergic reaction to something. What I don't know?  I have come to realize that the perfume I had been using is corn based. Has anyone had experience of a topical product causing such issues? Now that I know this I am going to stop using the perfume. Any thoughts or suggestions for new gluten and corn perfumes?  I am so tired of having to give up everything that I love!!
  6. Can anyone recommend a Gluten Free Hand Cream for very dry skin?  I want to know for sure that it is gluten free since I feel like anything on my hands has the potential to get me sick. Any help would be appreciated!! 
  7. Cosmetics! Help!

    I believe that most of the Physicians Formula products are gluten-free. The website is very good - check it out. Also - if you have a questions and email them they are usually good about answering.  Neutrogena is another company who offers a wide range of products and are usually very helpful when contacting them.  Some other companies to try are: Pacifica, Tarte, Gabrielle Cosmetics, 100 Percent Pure (the mascara is NOT gluten-free), Lorem ( they just sent me a coupon code for 40% off use the word President) and Ecco Bella, Red Apple Lipstick, and Juice Beauty. Good luck.
  8. i just contacted Clinique recently and they wrote the following:   Thank you for your interest in Clinique. We apologize for the delay in our response.     For the benefit of our gluten-sensitive consumers who may have cross-sensitivities, Clinique takes the extra precaution of including soy, corn and rice in our research in addition to wheat, oat, barley and rye derivatives.   In addressing your concern about gluten, we would like to explain that a vast number of raw materials from many different suppliers and sources are used in the manufacture of Estee Lauder Companies' products.  It is therefore not possible for us to fully guarantee that our products are completely free of ingredients that may elicit an allergic response in highly sensitive individuals who react to gluten.  For example, it is possible that small amounts of a wheat sourced ingredient may remain on shared manufacturing equipment even after a thorough cleaning.  We therefore recommend that you discuss this with your physician, because consumer safety is of utmost concern to us. Provided  below are the results of your inquiry: Superbalanced Makeup - Contains ingredients derived from Soy Perfectly Real Makeup - Contains ingredients derived from Soy Chubby Stick Cheek Colour Balm - Contains Rice and Soy I appreciate the opportunity to respond to your question, and sincerely hope I was able to be of assistance. You are valued as our consumer and I hope you will continue to use and enjoy our products with confidence and satisfaction.   Sincerely, Gloria C Consumer Response Representative     Clinique is usually pretty helpful if you call or write them.  
  9. It is actually spelled Tarte! 
  10. They sell Tart at Sephora and that is gluten free.
  11. Wanted to add to this post that I was in Shop Rite on Friday and saw Gluten Free Ego Waffles - they came in Regular and Cinnamon.  I bought the Regular and they were very good.
  12. Thank you so much - I looked at it on-line and it looks like it would be a good line.  Is there a particular product from the line that you think it is a must try?
  13. I have used Ecco Bella and have had no issues - i was not fond of the foundation but I do use the concealer and am happy with it.
  14. Pillsbury makes a pizza dough in the refrigerator section that I use to make calzones and I think it is really good! In my Shop Rite is near the cut and bake cookies and butter!
