Make Up

10 posts in this topic

Ok, While I do not wear make up a lot, mostly in the past just didn't feel like fooling with it, however on occasion when I want to look nice, I will put some on.  With that said, with what little dab of  goodies I had , it wound up in the garbage.  Some requirements I do have for new make up brands is 1) It must be gluten-free, 2) vegetarian friendly. If anyone knows of a good brand that would helpful. This brings me to another question related, but don't see a need to make a separate post. In the past I was a huge fan of Aveda, I loved their products but upon inquiring the salon told me while they are plant based, they do often contain gluten, and wasn't the most helpful on which ones did not. The receptionist did state there was a couple but didn't know which they was. That for me isn't really good enough, so I am on a mission to find a new hair salon in the New orleans area, or in Baton Rouge that does offer gluten-free hair care and uses them during hair cuts. 

 

 

As always thank you for the help,

I don't worry about what the salon uses.  It doesn't get in mouth.  At home, I worry about it a little more, because I seem to get shampoo in my mouth.

 

If the make-up won't go in your mouth, it should be fine.  Lipstick - needs to be gluten-free.  Mascara - not a big deal

i use physicians formula.  they're gluten free, but i don't know if they're vegetarian or not.  my skin has always been sensitive, nothing to do with gluten, but some 'regular' foundations or tinted moisturizers will make my face break out in a rash  :o  also, i can't do fragrances, blah, blah - sometimes i can't believe God made me a girl.  who smells like tea tree and coconuts............ :mellow:

I use afterglow makeup. It's certified gluten free and vegan.http://www.afterglowcosmetics.com/rh1/vegetarian-cosmetics.asp

I also use keeki chapstick, which is gluten-free and vegan

For shampoo, try Andalou naturals, which is also gluten-free and vegan. I order from vitacost online. Not sure about salons.

Honeybee Gardens is good too. I order from Abe's Market online.

Silk Naturals has gluten free lip products! They have a pretty wide selection! Are there any drug store brands that are gluten free? Like Revlon, Covergirl, Rimmel etc? :rolleyes:

The only drug store lines that I've been able to find that seemed to be gluten free were Wet n Wild and Physicians Formula.  You'd have to search to be sure nothing has changed etc.  When I looked, it looked like they only product Wet n Wild sold that had gluten in it was their Mega Plump mascara.  I do use their lip glosses.

Just wanted to bump this thread. I was at Ulta the other day refreshing my makeup bag and I found the most awesome gluten-free, cruelty free brand called Tarte. They have a statement that all of their products are formulated without gluten. I was a little hesistant because sometimes these so called "natural" makeup products are not as high quality. Also, there is always concern about the misuse of the term "gluten free." However, so far I am really enjoying the products and have found them to on-par with Clinique, my old favorite brand. I still use some Urban Decay products, but I check the ingredients online before purchase. I haven't had any problems with CC, but I'm sticking with Tarte for lipsticks and most everything else. Clinique partakes in animal testing, so even if they were gluten-free, their products are out the window for me moving forward.

 

Tarte products I recommend so far:

 

  • Lights, camera, lashes Mascara
  • Lipsurgence Matte Lip tint
  • Universal Lip Liner
  • Creaseless Conceler
  • Eye Primer Stick
  • Tinted Moisturizer
  • Maracuja Face Oil (this stuff is an awesome fast-drying oil that beats out Aura Acacia for me.)
  • The Sculptor Contour Pencil

 

Just wanted to share. Highly recommend Tarte! I haven't had much trouble with cosmetics. Even so, I am going to stick with a brand like Tarte as much as possible moving forward. It's nice to have that peace of mind.

    • Here's another thing.  Feeling deprived?  Order two of the same item.  I was hungry by the time dinner arrived! 
    • The doctors just made me feel like I was crazy because they did not have a clue of what was wrong with me. I did a stool test (positive) and I did a genes test (positive for two gluten sensitive genes, one in each chromosome).  Blood test are not so foolproof, if you read the comments/experiences in such topic you will see the problems. Biopsy can give a false negative if taken from an undamaged area. If you have medical problems that go away once on a gluten free diet then gluten is the problem. The medical establishment profit from managing your medical problems and big pharma makes money by pushing pills so we need to be careful because they won't benefit if a gluten-free diet solve your problems. Since I started a Gluten free diet I have been free of the following: (all related to Celiac)  Irregularity, Intestinal noise, Irregular stool, Tooth enamel defects, Rash in upper arms, Abdominal swelling, depression, fatigue, irritability, lactose intolerance, 
      loss of memory, dandruff, uncontrollable bladder, suicidal thoughts, unable to sleep, Canker sores/ Mouth ulcers, high blood pressure, and probably others that I did not realize. I was at the end of my rope, thanks to Google and the people that are able to talk about this I was able to get my life back. I am passionate about this because I know how bad its can get. 
    • Well, I have never cruised on Carnival, but I am sure they can accommodate you.  I assume that you have already alerted them that you require gluten free meals.  If not, please contact Carnival immediately. Here are my own tips.  Some folks eat off the buffet line, but not me or hubby except for coffee/drinks and baked potatoes (jacketed) and fruit that we wash in the restroom (people touch everything!)  Okay, I am OCD, but my last glutening which occurred the previous summer made me sick for three months (GI tested my antibodies to prove it).   When we board, I go to the buffet restaurant ASAP and ask to speak to the Head Waiter (they are usually there greeting customers and often trying to up sell to specialty restaurants.   Let them know you have celiac disease and must be gluten free.  They may try to tell you that each dish is clearly marked gluten free, but really?  Who's to say that some other passenger is not going to switch spoons (or I have seen passengers wandering around with serving spoons...I kid you not!  The staff usually will  go downstairs and fetch a gluten free meal for me from the main dining room's kitchen as there is usually a dedicated area for allergies.  We have to wait up to 20 minutes or so but it is worth it.  Starving?  Get a baked potato wrapped in foil until your gluten-free meal arrives.  Now, do not do this every single time.  Those folks have to go down several levels to fetch food and you don't want to be a pain.  But if the main dining area is closed, they need to make an effort to keep you safe.  On our last cruise, we were advised not to eat anywhere but the main dining room and that included room service (they are not trained to handled allergies).  My headwaiters have sent goodies (prepackaged gluten free rolls and cookies for us to keep in our room.  We can always grab whole fruit (I wash it first) to snack on.  I bring gluten-free non-perishable items with me to eat while at port in case we can't find anything (which can be often).  Again, when we get back to our ship, we contact our headwaiter and he/she can prepare some snacks until we have dinner.   Be grateful and not picky.   We eat all meals in the dining room (or at least as much as possible).  Our headwaiter had a few other celiacs on our cruise this summer, so they prepared some gluten-free waffles, etc. for our breakfast!  What a treat!  At breakfast, we'd have different waiters, so our headwaiter would always instruct our waiters each and every time!  They even let me tour the kitchen and showed me the allergy section.   The only time I did not feel safe was at the buffet.  We once ordered gluten-free pizza and I realized (I watched) that that restaurant didn't really have the gluten-free thing down), do I called him on it.  Got the manager etc.  So, be careful.  Other cruises made us frozen Udi"s which was just fine with us.  They covered it up in foil so that we would not get any cross contamination from their pizza oven. So, have fun!   Tipping?  We prepaid our gratuities, but we gave our headwaiter an extra $200.00 for his time.  For us, it was well worth the service and safety of our food.  It does not hurt to slip some of the tip ahead of time (like after your first meal!)   Oh, I checked your ship.  You must eat in the diningroom if you have special dietary needs.
