Make Up

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.

    • Ok, I can't seem to find my first lot of blood tests that were done for Celiac screening, they did include TTG I remember that much, and I am getting another copy of it but another test did come in today.  I don't know how different tests are done around the world and I don't get all the medical jargon but this is what it states, ******************************************************************************* HLA DR/DQ Genotyping for Coeliac Disease, Specimen type : EDTA blood Method : Detection of sequence-specific oligonucleotides (Gen-Probe). HLA-DR - 1, 13          DRB1 - 01, 13 HLA-DQ - 5,6        HLA-DQA1 - 5,6      HLA-DB1 - 05, 06 Interpretation : No genotype susceptibility for coeliac disease.  The DQ2 and DQ8 antigens associated with increased risk of coeliac disease were not identified in this patient.  In the absence of these antigens, coeliac disease is extremely unlikely.   *******************************************************************************   I have read the horror stories of blood tests and scope biopsies not be done right or flawed but here is what I do know as of now, At the moment the most non invasive test I can have done say negative.  I have double scopes (endoscopy and colonoscopy) booked for the 12th of October with results from biopsies expected a week or two after. Chances are they will show, a) signs of coeliac disease (even if the odds are low it can still happen), b) show signs of something else entirely and we will be busy dealing with the ramifications of that or c) it will show no signs of coeliac but I will still be suffering from gluten sensitivity (which is harder/impossible to measure clinically). My GP has told me that stress and anxiety can be a cause of all the symptoms I have been experiencing and suggests if the scopes show nothing that I may benefit from something to treat anxiety, i.e. antidepressants.  Not in a, "Oh we don't know what it is so have these," kind of way, he agrees with the thought that the scopes could indeed show coeliac, something else or even be negative. I did tell him that I could have a sensitivity and that even without benefit of clinical results, some people have gone on a gluten elimination diet for a period of time to see if they get any relief.  My question is this, if the scopes come up negative and I try eliminating gluten, how long would it be before I saw any results or improvements?  I have read enough here and elsewhere to know that everybody is different, some see results within days, some see results longer but are there any guidelines for how long a test like this should be undertaken for?  I have heard everything thing from two weeks to two months.  All of this is entirely moot at this point but I know that even if the results said clear, there would always be a little part of me that wonders if it could be a sensitivity that is the problem.  Any thoughts or advice greatly appreciated, and a thank you to all those who have taken the time to respond and offer advice and encouragement so far.

    • Thanks I never heard of that dye before, I guess I have to find more natural meat thanks for the suggestion. 
    • Yes, I only eat one meal a day. Sometimes salad or fries or whatever I can find. And thanks for the replies again.
    • A colonoscopy is not used to diagnose celiac disease.  An endoscopy is used to obtain biopsies in the small intestine.
