Does anyone know of any? Right now I'm using Bare Minerals, they're pricey though. What's everyone using? Thanks!

I use Zuzu, a gluten-free line that I get at my local health food store. I stopped using Bare Minerals after Dr. Oz warned about the hidden dangers of breathing in the nano-particals. Not sure if it's really something to worry about, but he doesn't usually go too far off the deep end, so I stopped using it just in case. I like the ZuZu line - it's all natural but performs well. I don't think you'll find much cost savings with it, however.

Good makeup pays for itself in the long run. I love Bare Minerals. I also use Benefit Hello Flawless. it's incredible stuff. I'm a total makeup and product snob. I just think in the long run you waste money on cheap products and they ruin your hair and your skin

I won't use Bare Minerals because of the bismuth oxychloride they put in it but I love Silk Naturals. The woman who owns the company, Karen, is meticulous about gluten. The few products that actually have gluten

I wasn't saying I want cheap makeup, I was just looking for options. Before I used Bare Minerals, I was using Clinique everything, that's expensive too. I have very sensitive skin and don't wear a lot of makeup but it would be nice to have a little every now and then for like church and going out with friends.

Thanks for all the suggestions, I just saw that ad here for Joelle, I'll check that out too, seems like a good one. I don't want to keep using Bare Minerals because it has corn(the mineral veil at least has it) and I avoid all grains. It just sucks because I have so much left of this stuff.

I have and use some of the ZuZu products. I was told they are gluten-free, however, after I'd been using the lipgloss for 4 months I found out that it contains wheatgerm oil. I got the list for every ZuZu item at a large health food store.

I can't use Bare Minerals either due the bismuth--makes my face itch. I really like the Everyday Minerals, and use their foundation. I tried a few mineral foundations after I stopped the Bare Minerals, and really liked how Everyday offers lots of colors and finishes--and has sample sizes so you can get the perfect match with your skin.

For blush I use Nars, eye shadows--Smashbox, lipstick--either Burt's Bee's Shimmers or Afterglow Cosmetics. I also love Loreal's Telescopic Explosion Mascara--the round brush is great.

I use a combo of Mary Kay, Avon, Cover Girl, MAC, and softlips. That pretty much runs the gamut on pricing!

Good to know. I don't use their lipgloss, I use another natural brand that is gluten free..and I double-checked that specifically since I would likely ingest it.

Everyday Minerals!

I used to use Everyday Minerals but developed a reaction. I have very fair, sensitive skin. I switched to Meow Cosmetics (also online). Their website is awful. Use the Cat Chat Forum to have the experts determine which color is best for you.

Do you happen to use any of the softlip shimmers? If so, which shades? I've been thinking of trying them.

Crap! I use this and I am corn free.....I love make up and I've been searching to get my look back to before gluten-free. Thanks for the info, I didn't even think about corn in my make up...I shoulda though.

Glad to help. Be careful of corn...corn is everywhere, even in bandaids and stuff you won't expect!!!!

Oh another thing, how about moisturizers? Does anyone have suggestions? I've been using Oil of Olay sensitive skin for years and I got concerned about the source of vitamin E. I called them and they won't give me info no matter how much I asked. SO I'm not sure if the vit. E is sourced from soy, I'm concerned because I read somewhere that sometimes it could be from wheat. Thoughts anyone?

I've been using Physician's Formula,but just looked it up and this is what it said:

Q. Does Physicians Formula products contain Gluten?

A. Unfortunately, we cannot guarantee that none of the ingredients, or derivatives in our products do not contain gluten.

ARG!! Back to the drawing board. I have to stay away from all fragrances as well. I'm now at a complete loss.

After running the gamut of calling companies and receiving ambiguous replies as to their comments (and the untrustworthy insistence to avoid responding to inquiries in writing), I do all I can not to buy make up that will actually say up-front that it is gluten-free.

That said, I use Afterglow cosmetics for most things, and a few items from Tarte's line of products actually have gluten-free written on the website or the packaging (though I have had to watch them for a change of formula). As I was getting stressed and overwhelmed with the research, Afterglow ended up being a good place to start, as all of their product line is safe. Then, as you find things you can buy work them in.

For moisturizers, I have been using 100% Pure SPF pomegranate face moisturizer (Bath and Body Works even sells SOME of their products as expressly gluten-free options - just look up gluten-free on their website). The 100% Pure website, however, has other gluten-free moisturizers on their site too. You have to check product information. Someone also recently recommended skincareforathletes.com as a moisturizer option. I haven't tried it yet.

I had a very negative experience with Oil of Olay when asking about their products being gluten-free. The representative e-mailed me that their doctors confirmed that as their products are used externally their should be no problem - and directed me to some Celiac websites to educate myself (including this one where I had gotten the idea to contact companies about their cosmetics). I called to complain, and never received the reply from management they promised.

Thanks for the info, I actually have one of those Pomegranate things, the eye cream. I didn't know they had a lotion, I'll have to check it out. I want to be done with Oil of Olay, not happy with the lack of info or secrecy regarding their ingredients.

I'll check out the other stuff you mentioned too, thanks again!

as for make-up.....i have been using Joelle Cosmetics for the last couple of months...the whole line is gluten free so there is no risk of cross contamination....and i like supporting a small business. i haven't tried everything but i do really like their liquid foundation and their powder foundation. i also use their Emu oil and shea butter moisterizer.... seems to work great and is very hydrating. i recently just bought their make-up remover and i really like that as well. i would definitely suggest checking them out. their costs are very reasonable...and there are big discounts for 1st time orders and 2nd time orders. and they offer some samples at a lower price so you can try out their foundations...

as for face washes....Joelle had a complexion bar that i have used and had good results. i have also used Dessert Essence Organics tea tree face wash... the entire Dessert Essence Organics line is vegan and gluten free. I love their coconut line of shampoo, conditioner, body wash, and lotion! :)

I tried one and it was too light. I had 1986 flashbacks!! I tossed it so I'm not sure what shade it was, sorry. My fave is the peppermint vanilla (no shimmer).

Mositurizer I use Avon (body) and Mary Kay (face). Avon lists all their ingredients and Mary Kay does not use any gluten. I like that. Takes all the guess work out.

Dessert Essence Organics line is vegan and gluten free. I love their coconut line of shampoo, conditioner, body wash, and lotion! :)

I use their raspberry shampoo and conditioner. Love them! In addition to no gluten there's no SLS (sodium laurel sulfate) which seems to flare the heck out my scalp psoriasis. Finding a shampoo without gluten AND SLS can be tough so I was glad to find this product. I'll have to try their body washes and lotion too.

Odd. I did not get the same information about Mary Kay when I researched them. My mother-in-law has sold it for years, and after looking into it from her end, she suggested getting other makeup. They don't even mention gluten on their website, which is always a red flag for me. I've had too many representatives of cosmetic companies telling me things are gluten free - without wanting to put it into writing - even going so far as to tell me that they don't have e-mail at the company.

    • Gluten ataxia...?
      I was explaining that some people have other trouble that is immune related and caused by eating gluten, but doesn't effect the gut in a noticeable way. According to the paper that I quoted there are some people which have different types of brain problems but don't have inflammation when tested by a biopsy.  The author used the term "non-Celiac gluten sensitivity" to refer to anyone who has any brain trouble that can be traced to gluten but without obvious gut inflammation.  There are a lot of different possible ways gluten can effect the brain some may not be related to the gut.  It could still be an immune system problem.  Normally "non-Celiac gluten sensitivity" refers to just a food intolerance.  Withdrawal symptoms are not normal and could be indicative of an immune system response of some sort, but I don't know for sure.        
    • Weird Reaction
      Hi Richie I've put the above in quotes as you have described in the first and second sentence how I felt six months prior to my DX.   In my own case, in the end I concluded it was anxiety after consulting Dr Google!  It was such an alien feeling to me, I couldn't even think what it was, particularly as life was pretty good at the time.  Anxiety is a problem for a lot of celiacs prior to diagnosis, and often after glutening after going gluten-free. You mention breathlessness, this of course can be for reasons such as anaemia (again a common celiac problem, I had this prior to DX) but of course also can arise if you are anxious.   Re 'gluten free' - Flowerqueen is right, from what I have read on this forum some people really do seem to react with less than 20ppm.    But perhaps some other things to consider...  could there be something wrong with the batch you have consumed?  Might it be worth contacting the manufacturers?   That said, you could , as Flowerqueen suggests, have a problem with another ingredient, in the product or something else you consumed. In the past I have had a terrible reaction - fever, trembling, diarrhea, stomach cramps that lasted up to three hours the last three times I ate..... broccoli, of all things.    Who would have thought that possible?  I have often thought I should try it again, just to be sure it was the broccoli, as it is a 'super food' that I ought to have in my diet, that I like very much, but the thought of having such a reaction again has put me off. I do hope you will find some answers soon.  
    • Weird Reaction
      Hi Richie,  I've not heard of this drink before, as I live in the UK, but any drink made from barley is something you should avoid.  There's a brand in the UK that makes lemon and barley water and orange and barley water and Coeliac UK say it is not safe for people with Coeliac disease.  (Our labelling laws in the UK changed a couple of years ago).  You say the drink you had was under 20 ppm, which is acceptable (usually) for coeliacs, but a lot of people are super-sensitive to gluten even in very small amounts.  I recently had a similar problem with something which was supposed to be okay for coeliacs, but when I checked the website of the product, for all it said there were no gluten containing ingredients, it was produced in an area where gluten was present, which was enough to put me off and must admit, the symptoms you describe sound very much like I experienced at the time.  (Personally I'd be avoiding that particular drink like the plague from now on). One other thing though,  have you checked the ingredients to see if there could be anything else in it which you may be intolerant to?

      Hello! I am new to this Celiac website... Is there anyone out there with Celiac AND extensive food allergies? My allergies include shellfish, dairy, eggs, cantaloupe, kiwi, mango, nuts, oranges, red dye, and more I can't think of. I went to the allergist about a year ago to see why I wasn't feeling well, and once everything was eliminated, I still didn't feel well. We did more testing to find out I had celiac as well as allergies to cattle as well as rye grass (I live on a farm basically). This was back in January 2016. I recently had my endoscopy with the gastroenterologist a week ago. I have no idea what to do or what to eat... So fish and potatoes for me!

      Week 4 of the gluten challenge- wheat cereal every morning, regular bread every day, and wheat tortillas for my lunch wraps. Right now, body aches that seem exercise related (weight lifting and running), even though I am doing the same intensity of weight lifting and running I've always done.  Just a few more weeks until my blood test. Counting down the days.
