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.

    • Squirmingitch, I forgot to mention best of luck to you during the storm! I hope you are safe and that your home isn't impacted too badly! I'm on the coast in SC so we will see some storms from it but nothing near as bad as what you will have. Take care and good luck.
    • SquirmingItch, I really appreciate you gathering info for me! To answer your questions, yes, I'm on Dapsone now and have been on it for about 4.5 weeks. I have been gluten free for the same amount of time. I started on 50 mg of Dapsone which didn't seem to help much. I spoke to my doctor about it and after about a week she raised it to 100 mg. Since then I did notice a huge improvement in both my rash and itch. I no longer have any active rashes and my itching isn't completely gone but it's very minimal. I have been getting weekly blood tests done and will soon be moving to monthly.  My DH skin biopsy was done before the gluten free diet and Dapsone. My results for the skin biopsy came back as inconclusive, but even with those results, my doctor was convinced I had DH. I specifically asked her about the fact that she took the biopsy directly from the lesion rather than next to it and if that affects the result. Her explanation was that if it's a fresh enough lesion that isn't scratched, there should be IgA antibodies present. But she said that an inconclusive result isn't surprising because the IgA antibodies come and go from the skin so quickly that it can be very difficult to get a positive result, even in someone who is positive.  That's when she decided to run the celiac blood panel on me. And even though those results came back positive for the deamidated gliadin and negative for tTg, she still is very convinced that I have DH. I am happy that my doctor seems to be certain, but I would just feel better if the results were more definitive. The one other thing I am waiting on is I have been asked to attend grand rounds at the local academic hospital in 2 weeks. I guess grand rounds is where all of the academic dermatologists and dermatopathologists get together to review certain complicated cases. They will meet with me, review all of my pictures, biopsies and blood tests. My situation has been so complicated so they asked me to come. I am hoping maybe then I will get some more answers. 
    • It sure is, it really is. 
    • shellyb, I have info. for you & you may yet be able to get an official dx from your dermatologist as she sounds like she would be willing to learn. If you are dx'd with dh it is definitive & no other testing is needed. You don't need to see a GI. Im in FL & have had a long day watching Tropical Storm Hermine & making preparations for it's track which is over where I live. I'm tired! I will have links for you to reputable medical info. on the rash but it make take me till tomorrow or even longer if we lose power.  I'll be back as soon as I can. Question: You're on Dapsone now? How long have you been on it? How is it working for you? Are you getting the proper testing at regular intervals to make sure it isn't doing bad things to you? Were you gluten free before the skin biopsy?
    • Thank you so much for your quick response, GFinDC. While I wouldn't be completely opposed to another skin biopsy, I already had 4 done (3 were done prior to my dermatologist suspecting DH) so I don't love the idea of  yet another hole and scar on my body. Plus, fortunately I don't have any fresh lesions now, which I believe is needed for the biopsy. I wish I would have known to see a GI before going gluten free but I was so desperate to get any relief that I started that and Dapsone as soon as my doctor mentioned it to me.  My rash is definitely symmetrical and I have it in all of the "classic" DH spots although it basically spread over my entire body. As much as I'd like a more formal diagnosis, I really don't think I can go through all of that again. It was so bad that not only was I getting no sleep but I had to change my sheets every morning because there was blood all over them. Sorry, TMI. The worst part is that this all developed during my ninth month of pregnancy and got much worse after I delivered my baby. So not only was I dealing with this insanely itchy rash but I had a newborn and a toddler to take care of.  My daughters' pediatrician did mention doing DNA testing on me first and then my daughters to see if there's any concern that they may be susceptible. I may just go that route for now. I was just curious if others have had similar test results to mine and how did their doctors treat it? Thanks again!
