Ok, So I read on here that Clinique has a book that lists what has what... so I went to the store. They had a book, but didn't say that these were gluten free...

So read labels, and more labels, and then tried some stuff...

I got a cleanser and a foundation.

I got

"Comforting Cream Cleanser"

and

"Super Balanced Make-up"

I also go free samples of:

Extra Mild Face Soap

Dramatically Different moisturizing lotion

Clarifying lotion

Anyone use these products? I read the ingredients over and over, I see nothing, but I'm worried still!

I know the last 3 things are gluten-free (I use them and confirmed with Clinique), but not sure about the first 2. I think the "list" they have at their counter will say the ingredients, but not necessarily in plain English (so you can't really tell what is wheat, etc.). You can email Clinique with the specific items and they will respond fairly quickly to say if it is gluten-free or not.

I went online to chat with a "consultant" and she gave me a number to call (there are no numbers on any bottle!).

I got a number but have to call at work tomorrow *grrr*

I jsut used the 3 step, it worked nice.

I think the place is called Global Customer Care or something like that, and I know the hours were something like the standard banking hours east coast. I didn't write all the details down, just the number. But the number is..... 1-866-707-2100

I hate when the companies don't post numbers... Grr.

Bah

Yay!

Ok I just got off the phone with Clinique,

They don't have the Comforting Cream Cleanser, or the Clarifiying Lotion (number 1) tested, but she will e-mail the Chemists and e-mail me with the information.

The Super Balanced Makeup has Soy.

The Dramatically Different Mosturizer has Corn.

They also test for the presence of Rice.

But that number was great, didn't even sit on hold long.

Thank you for posting about Clinique. I have had great luck with many of their products. A few have caused me problems and I didn't know why. One of them is the All About Eyes I'm sure.

I'm working through the list of Clinique products I have, and have been trying to answers from the company. I'll post more when I know. I've written two emails and no answers yet.

Currently I am using facial soap mild, clarifying 1, foundation, make-up remover, eye make-up remover, tint for eyes and blusher that are gluten free as best as I can determine.

The long lash mascara is not, and the lipsticks I have are not. 7 day scrub has gluten. Repairwear and all about eyes as mentioned here. I think there may be one mascara that is okay and several lipsticks except that I am also trying to avoid bismuth. Looks like maybe one lipstick will be okay, still trying to figure it out.

I found a recipe about making a "scrub" with soap and soda. Tried it with ivory soap and it works pretty well. When it is gone I'll try with the clinique facial soap.

All about Eyes is a double whammy wheat bran and barley!

I have found clinique to be really good about getting back to me, only problem is quite a few they still need to contact the chemist.... so that takes time. If you want to know right away, call the number posted above. Of course.. that's only if they arn't still checking with the chemist.

The I believe the Mild liquid Facial soap has barley in it. I think it's right on the list of ingredients. The bar is fine, and the best bar soap I have ever used on my face. I think I had a reaction to perfectly real foundation. It was kinda old, and it might have not even been that, so I just threw it out and got the Superbalanced foundation. That stuff is great, it absorbs sweat! I wore it on a 90 degree day, and it didn't run down my face! I got the rinse off foaming cleanser, I love it! Oh I VERY highly reccomend the Moisture Surge Thirsty Skin Relief if you have dry skin. It is totally not greasy, just soaks right in.

They haven't confirmed for me about clarifiyng lotion #1, but i am using it 2 times a day and no problems.

Hi, I find it interesting that your hubby was misdiagnosed with IBS and Colitis. I was as well and one very rude doctor then went on to say if I had bowel problems it was because i was silly enough to live in India, AS IF IT IS HIS BUSINESS WHERE I CHOOSE TO LIVE! and how dare he discriminate against other countries anyway. I had to go to Bangkok, Thailand to get a proper diagnosis. They were very sweet, helpful and understanding as well. I'm sorry about your husband, I hope he can battle through...

sincerelySue

There are lots of Gluten free products, the trick is finding them! I use clinique because I have sensitive skin, very dry skin and hate fragrance (all clinique is fragrance free). They are more than just cosmestics, they are created by dermatologists. I also like how I can go to the counter and say, I need this... help! I just feel very overwhelmed when looking in a drug store.

You need to be careful of all personal products. If you have just celiac, if you ingest some, it will make you sick, if you have Dermatitis Hepaformis (sp?) it will cause a rash. I found out about a month in from being gluten-free that the shampoo I was using because my hair was thinning and falling out, had wheat in it... making my hair thin and fall out! (that is also attributed to malnutrion from celiac).

Anyway, don't feel like you have to use Clinique, most brands have gluten free options, and what brand you like best is up to you.

I have seen several references on this forum that dramatically different moisturizing lotion is gluten-free. I have been using it without obvious problems so far. So that matches this information Clinique just sent me.

I don't know. Maybe ask in a new thread as people who don't use Clinique might not view the thread here. Somebody probably knows. I think it is pretty likely the grain is wheat, corn or barley.

Thanks to everyone that did the research on these products. I have now pinpointed that the "all about eyes" cream is what has been causing this rash on my face. Ive been using it for years, but the rash just showed up about a month ago, so I didn't connect the two until I went to my dermatologist and she said it looked like an allergic reaction to something. Then I started to research.

Thank you again!!! Does anyone have any suggestions on a replacement eye cream? I know Arbon has good stuff, and it's all gluten-free, but it's really expensive.

I have used Cinique products since I was 16 (so over 30 years!) I was diagnosed with a wheat allergy/gluten intollerance back in 2008 and have been gluten-free since that time. I have had no issues with any of the clinique products. At this time I use the Perfectly Real Makeup. I have tried many of their samples as I always purchase my clinque during bonus times. I hope this helps.

    • What if it were something else that glutened you?  Maybe you ate too much of a good thing?  I once (three months post dx) ate too much gluten-free fried chicken, vomited, passed out and fractured my back (osteoporosis) in the process.  Paramedics, ER doc and Cardio all thought I was having a heart attack.   No.  It was sheer gluttony and bad bones.  Not good to overload with a damaged gut.    Maybe you did get some contaminated nuts.  Afterall, anything processed is suspect.  What might be well tolerated by some, might be too much for others.  We all have our various levels of gluten intolerance.   The old 20 parts per million is just a guideline, but science does not really know (lack of funding......doe anyone really care enough to find out?)  My hubby has been gluten-free for 15 years.  When I was first diagnosed, I tried to eat the gluten-free foods that I normally gave him.   Problem was he was healed and I was not.  Things like Xanthan Gum in commercial processed gluten-free breads make me feel like I have been glutened, but it is just (and still is) an intolerance.  So no bread for me unless I make it myself using a different gum.   Too lazy, so I do without.   so, ask your doctor if you really want to know or lay off the cashews and test them again in a month using a certified gluten-free nut.  I wish this was easier!    
    • I have intolerances to a few foods now, so I was wondering about that.. I love cashews though, and a month or two ago I was eating them all the time with no problems at all. I mean, could I really have developed an intolerance to them since then? I don't know if they're made on shared lines (it didn't say on the package so I assumed they weren't), but I'll give them a call. I'm really, really sensitive to cross contamination. Even if something is just made in the same facility (but not on shared lines) it will make me sick. If that's not it, then I'm not really sure
    • Research with KP and find a celiac-savvy GI in your area ( read the biographies). and ask your PCP/GP for a referral to that specific GI (not his buddy).  Ask the GI for the rest  of the celiac panel or proceed with an endoscopy/biopsies -- 4 to six.  Keep eating gluten daily until all testing is complete.  Document and request in writing.  Do not worry about symptoms.  There are over 300 of them and some celiacs have none!   Research all that you can about celiac disease.  The University of Chicago has a great celiac website that has testing Information etc.   Poet me know how it works out.  Hope you feel better soon!  
    • I react to both wheat and barley.  I've opted to just go completely gluten free, for the sake of simplicity and my sanity.  I don't have a diagnosis of celiac disease, but I strongly suspect it.  Unfortunately, I'm not willing to endure the misery of staying on gluten long enough to pursue further testing.  I just know I need to avoid the gluten grains, so I do.  
    • I think that we have to remember that celiacs often develop intolerances due to our  damaged guts.  Our guts do not ncessarily heal either (usually adults) for  a variety of reasons even if their symptoms improve (see links below).   Nuts are just plain hard to digest.   I can not tolerate almonds, but can handle walnuts and cashews in small amounts.  I can eat peanuts too, but resort to Peanutbutter after a Glutening as it is easier to digest (maybe I have to learn to chew better!  😀)  My nut symptoms have  nothing to do with gluten as I have purchased certified gluten-free nuts and suffered with the same symptoms.  .   https://www.verywell.com/celiac-disease-when-will-your-small-intestine-recover-562341 http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/treatment/ http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/23936873 i call the manufacturer when I suspect the manufacturer is sharing the line or if I just want to know.  I bought some Black English walnuts and called the company.  Those are the only nuts they process and they do not have any flavored nuts.   if you really want to test your theory out, buy some nuts from Nuts.com (certified gluten-free).   See if you get a reaction or ask your GI to retest your antibodies (which should be done annually anyway).   I just hate to have Planters get a bum rap when you do not really know for sure.......😥
