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.

      Update: I am about at my wit's end. I won't be able to see my new doctor until July 17 to get a referral to a GI doctor, so I continue to eat gluten and the effects continue to worsen. Today my boss, whom I have been working with for 12 years, and I had a meeting where he said he's noticed a change in many things, such as speech, not articulating well, forgetfulness, and other things that are affecting my work product. I finally told him I know there is something wrong with me medically and I've been trying to get to the doctor to no avail. I recall those four weeks early in the year when I tried out gluten free and was beginning to feel much better- more present, more sharp, and then went back on gluten in preparation for the blood test.  I just don't think I can do this gluten thing any longer and am thinking of going cold-turkey gluten free.  I'm 54 years old, am beginning not to care about a diagnosis because I just want to feel better and be able to do what I need to do. Because of how I felt going off of gluten earlier in the year, and eating gluten free when I was on the McDougall plan years ago, and how I feel while doing this gluten challenge, I am pretty convinced that my issue is gluten.  Any words of encouragement would be welcome.  If you've done gluten free and never looked back, tell me about it.

Made my celiac disease so much worse, sleep 15-18 hours a day, SIBO, it has completely altered my life since getting this vaccination. My doctor has two twin girls about my age and they both have digestion problems after receiving gardasil Thank you I have a young daughter and have wondered this exact question posed by the poster and your response has given me great pause about this issue which may come up in years to come. I am sorry to hear this wreak havoc on your life, but simultaneously thank you for sharing this detail to help those of us that have likely been decades misdiagnosed celiacs now raising children. Thank you.
    • Gluten does WHAT to the brain?
      "Wondering what kind of life my brother could have had - if  he had celiac - constantly haunts me" My sympathies that is just tragic, as this story is.  I hope you are at peace knowing you are aware of your celiac and help so many lost, scared, and confused celiacs here. It can never bring back your brother but I hope it can give soften some of what you feel that was/is beyond your control. His suffering and your loss has made you a better advocate to yourself and in your work helping us. I don't like my body or my  brain on gluten either. I do fear that people overlook the toll inflammation takes on the brain. It likely may explain decades of mental illness that was brain based inflammation unknown until changes in technology advancement catch up. However consuming gluten to study how one enters psychosis may not be the best method. Do no harm.

      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.
