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.

    • A good diet for avoiding type 2 diabetes
      Thanks so much, gluten-free,  in my hypchondriacal panic I saw that website!  It is good to have an endorsement from a celiac.   I remember seeing quite a few reassuring stories in it along the lines that you describe. Funny isn't as because I now feel far less inclined to eat large amounts of carbohydrate now I have cut back a bit.   It seems the more sugar I ate, the more I wanted to eat.  
    • Celiac.com: Gluten-free not always the way to go
      When people with Celiac Disease eat gluten, their body mounts an immune response that attacks the small intestine and leads to damage to the villi, ... View the full article
    • Newly diagnosed and totally overwhelmed
      It is overwhelming at first but step by step you will begin to find food you like - new naturally gluten free 'clean' food you have never tried before, or gluten free substitutes that taste  almost as good or just as good as the food you miss.   Someone told me one just get used to gluten free bread in the end.  But there are some on the market that are so convincing now they have even fooled my gluten eating family.   (On the subject of bread, one useful tip someone gave me early on is if one toasts gluten free bread it tastes much better.  Others may disagree but I think it does - but you will need your own gluten free toaster.... )   I am also finding that as time goes on there seems to be more and more on offer for us in the shops.  The annoying thing here in the UK is one supermarket does superb ready meals for example, another does great gluten free bread, and another sells delicious gluten free Worcestershire Sauce, but it is hard to find one that sells everything you need under one roof at times.   I don't know if it is like that where you live but if it is like this you will get wise to it and end up getting used to stocking up when the opportunity presents itself. Eating out is often challenging but after not eating out for a while when I was healing I have now found a few restaurants, and a couple are chains, that I can trust.     Lastly, it is always good to have some gluten free snacks - fruits, nuts, bars etc, at the ready when the hunger pangs strike and there is nothing there for you.  I still forget and today went to a museum with my son and had to watch him in the cafe eat his cheese and ham toastie and all I had was a cup of tea!   
    • amalgam dental fillings - remove or not?
      Yes, I meant mercury not lead, thank you for the correction. That's what happens when I stay on the computer until late at night.  The symptoms I have now resemble my gluten reaction and I know it's almost impossible that I would be getting glutened. I remember someone here mentioning that he/she had amalgam fillings removed and it helped, but that was few years back. That's why I posted it here. 
    • Newly diagnosed and totally overwhelmed
      akohlman--I am exactly 1 month from being diagnosed and still going through cleaning out of all the gluten foods from my life. I have really bad Dermatitis Herpetiformis but other wise I had no reason to think I had something like Celiac Disease. That being said, I TOTALLY understand. For me... its hard to be sick and not feel sick if that makes sense.....   I'm going to make the changes. I'm going to live a gluten-free life but like you... I STILL am devastated. I'm overweight... so obviously I don't have a healthy relationship with food, LOL, so I'm DYING at the idea of never eating Pizza Hut, Chili's Pasta, Red Lobster Pasta, McDonalds, etc. I don't care what anyone says.... that is a HUGE adjustment for me and I'm still reeling from the "loss".   That being sad.... I have 3 children and a husband depending on me and I'll do all I can to lengthen my lifespan so.... Here is to new journeys.   YOU ARE NOT ALONE in your sadness!

      Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you?  Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉  Do you know how to fix it?  You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.
