Thanks for posting that, Moongirl. When I suggest BE, I always follow with "their skincare line is not gluten-free". The skin rever-upper is also not gluten-free. No matter what product you use, it's always best to check the label :)

:o Hi This may sound stupid, but are you saying that gluten in makeup absorbed into the skin affects your intestines?? I guess I never thought of it. So I can't use bare escentuals? wow....

No gluten is not absorbed thru the skin. Some Celiac's do have skin problems when they put lotions containing wheat on their skin (rashes and dermatitis herpiformis) but I'd say most of us do not. The problem is that its very hard to keep skin lotions away from our mouths.. you have to be really careful not to apply near your mouth and then to wash your hands carefully. Some say if you even touch your face hours after you put a lotion containing wheat on it that your hands are filled with gluten.

Its my understanding that the Bare Essentials make up is gluten free, its just their skin care products that are not. However when I started using bare Essentials I got a lotion with the kit that contained wheat (I didn't realize it at first) and I do use it around my eyes and on my forehead and I've not had any problems with it. I doubt I'd buy it again because I hate being so careful but I must say I love how it works.

Hope this helps a bit,

Susan

Can you tell me more about why you like Mineral Basics? I am trying Bare Minerals right now, but I'm willing to switch to something cheaper and definitely 100% gluten free. I'd love to hear more about why you like Mineral Basics!

Thanks!

Hi AnnieMae and welcome :)

Several of us are using Everyday Minerals. It's a great line, less expensive than BE and it's all gluten-free. Here's the link to the thread--

    • I'm glad I found these forums!  I will spend some more time this evening reading through them.  But I wanted to get my question out there just to see if anyone else might have answers quicker than I can sift through the forum for them.      I've been feeling terrible for about a year, and after an elimination diet last month, figured out that if nothing else, gluten/wheat is a problem.  After lots of research, I abandoned the elimination diet and added gluten back in, so that I could get tested for Celiac.   I was off gluten for 3 weeks, from mid-June until early July.  I've had it back in my diet for almost 3 weeks now.    My question is this: Since I was off gluten for 3 weeks, and now back on for almost 3, is that enough time on to yield a positive Celiac blood test, if that indeed is what I have?  All the research I've done says 4-6 weeks for a gluten challenge, but is that really necessary if I was only not eating it for 3 weeks?  I am desperate to get this testing done and over with.  I feel terrible all the time and getting through the day is a struggle.  My doctor ran allergy panels already and everything came back clear except for a mild wheat allergy.  So if nothing else, I'll have to give up wheat for sure at the end of all this.  I get the feeling she doesn't know a ton about Celiac though, so I'm doing a lot of the research on my own. Any advice or information would be so appreciated! 
    • Hi Michael, That's quite a spike in blood pressure!  I haven't tested that myself and don't want to if it means I have to eat gluten.  Blood pressure testing to identify food reactions is something that has come up before.  It sounds like it might be possible but I don't know how much study has been done on it.  Probably not much since it is such a simple, straight forward idea. Welcome to the forum!
    • Hi Megan, Did the doctor test you for celiac disease?  You really shouldn't go gluten-free until all the testing for celiac disease is completed.  It is a little odd for a doctor to tell you to go gluten-free for no reason IMHO.  Did he/she explain the reason for it? Personally, I have learned over the years what I can eat safely and what I can't.  Occasionally I get hit but it is rare.  Simplifying your diet is a good first step.  Avoiding processed foods for a while and dairy also is good.  I suggest any change you make last for a month at least. Then try the food again. If you are eating 100 random ingredients/foods each day it is hard to figure these things out.  If you reduce it to a much smaller number of foods then things become simpler. Welcome to the forum!

    • hey! Wondering if I can get some good info/help from you guys! I just signed up for this website couple weeks ago. Whenever I would Google things this was always the first to pop up and I always found info on things I googled. I am pretty new to the gluten free thing. I had a hernia surgery back in Jan and after that I kept throwing up after eating, the DR. told me it was probably acid reflex caused from surgery but all the meds I tried nothing helped. I went back and was told to cut gluten out. I have been doing so since. When I first started I felt like I had it under control and didn't throw up for 3 weeks, now I find it happening more often. I do buy gluten-free things and read labels to the best I can. My frustration comes from not knowing what its from. How do you know if its from the day before or what you just ate? I hate not knowing. Especially when I haven't had gluten (or so I think) I have been keeping a journal but I just find it so hard. I get this feeling in my stomach and can feel it in my throat. Sometimes I puke once sometimes 5 times! Yesterday for lunch I made an omlet with chicken mushrooms and feta cheese. I threw up almost 20 min after. I have also tried the no dairy thing and it doesn't seem to make a difference so I don't think dairy is an issue as well.
