Gluten Free Drugstore Makeup?!
0

15 posts in this topic

What do you use that you have found to be gluten free?! Before I was completely debiliated by this brain fog and could still work I was quite obsessed with makeup and beauty products so I have a rediculous amount of stuff.. Being that I am very new to going gluten-free and taking it step by step Im just curious! Esp, eye liner and mascara. ( I have a terrible twitch in my left eyelid and am wondering if it is gluten related! Any recommendations on drugstore face moisterizer as well?

There are hundreds of threads on this topic.

Use the SEARCH FORUM VIA GOOGLE --look on the top right of your screen under your profile? ---see it? :)

okay, type in moisturizer, etc, and you will find a lot of helpful information!

I do not worry about eye makeup as I do not get that in my mouth.

Your main concern is lip stick.

and welcome to the forum!

Foundation, powder, etc. have caused huge problems for me in addition to lipstick. I touch my face all the time without thinking, rub my eyes, then yep! In my mouth my fingers end up going for whatever reason. So, I just stick with affordable online companies. Cleure (along with great makeup, also has soaps, shampoos, and toothpastes, etc. too) and Afterglow being the best and closest to mainstream makeup as far as blending, coverage, and color.

Hi :)

I use Burt's Bees Lip Shimmers with no problem.

Eye liner and mascara, AfterGlow Cosmetics.

Lotion, soap and body oils California Baby is my line of preference.

Hope this helps!

I use Maybelline Great Lash Mascara and have various eye liners (I picked up a Wet & Wild eye liner on a whim recently). I'm using a Revlon foundation, Cover Girl powder...no special products that I can't pick up at a local drug store or Wal-Mart.

In the past six months I picked up a Garnier moisturizer I like a lot and would like to try their shampoo and conditioner. Right now I use Suave.

Lip products would be more critical...I use Blistex Lip Balm (in the blue-green tube). Rarely wear lipstick but then I don't work so no need to dress up. I threw out tons of lipstick when I first went gluten-free as I had no idea what was in it.

Not everything has to be expensive...and this is coming from a former product snob. laugh.gif

Ditto, SA. I used to buy high- end products like Estee Lauder, Clinique, Origins, Bare Minerals, etc. although I never wore foundation.

Maybelline Great Lash works better than ANY of those brands!

I am still looking for a lip gloss I like. I purchased a very expensive one from one of the "gluten free" makeup companies, as well as a mascara (when I worried incessantly early on about such things) and honestly, for a total of $50, neither of those products was very good. I threw them both out. :(

Back to basics for me. Garnier is good.

I just thought maybe reading a few threads would give you more to consider as you make your list.

Be sure to check the dates on the posts for the most recent info.

Hope you can find what you need!

Have you tried Red Apple Lipstick? I love their lipsticks, glosses and balm. They are gluten-free, paraben free, vegan, etc. They have amazing customer service and when I bought my first couple I cringed at the price (I have never been one to pay a lot for cosmetics since I don't wear them very often) but I've gotta say they are totally worth it.

Red Apple has developed eyeliners and are about to introduce eye shadows. I guess they hope to roll out all sorts of gluten-free cosmetics but are taking it very slowly and doing lots of testing to make sure the products are of high quality but pass all the tests they give them. I've been so impressed with their lip products I will happily buy any other products they develop!

I agree with Red Apple! I have three lipsticks and two glosses. I love that the shades are pink! They are super sweet, check out their page on Facebook.

Another vote for Red Apple Lipstick. They have a lipstick "exchange" program whereby you send in your old used lipstick for a discount on their stuff. I sent in 3 lipsticks/glosses and bought 2 lipsticks and 1 gloss. I love them. I have Ruby Slippers and Strawberry and both are very flattering colors.

At first I wasn't sure, but saw that the "celiac Diva" used these and reviewed them. They were very fast in answering all my questions. I'm gluten-free of course, but also nut, soy free. I have no problems with the lipsticks at all. I will tell you some are lighter on the lips than other. I have both and I love both. they have a few shades that are shimmers. I love that. The are a very sweet couple that really care about putting out a great product.

Has anyone had any luck with Younique? They have several products that are gluten-free too.

 

What about for face cleansers and stuff? I am looking for good products but won't make me broke either.

Welcome, @MBrooks985!

This thread is pretty old, with only one person still posting regularly.  This is from their website, and a long list of gluten free products are listed.  If you have celiac, I would pay attention to the bold statement, especially if there is a chance you might ingest some makeup by accident:

 

 

We are aware that some customers are highly sensitive to gluten. Most of our products are free of ingredients derived from common gluten sources (such as wheat, oats, rye and barley) but since many are manufactured in facilities where gluten may be present, we cannot represent that they are completely gluten-free. We would suggest that you consult with your physician or conduct a patch test if you have concerns about gluten and the ingredients in our product formulas.

    • I'll give my PCP a call tomorrow and see what they can offer. My only worry is the expense as anymore tests will put me behind in being able to afford to see the GI. I have high deductible insurance but get money put into my HSA. I'm still trying to pay off the CT scan though. Which is why I'm trying to pick and choose which poses the greatest risk for me right now and what can wait. (Though I would prefer not to wait on any of it.)

      I really do hope its only IBS. Though I always worry IBS is more or less a doctors way of saying "I have no clue" at that point. :C

      Again, I'll be sure to give my PCP a call tomorrow then and see what the options are. I can feel a lot better trying the blood work first. however, once that is done, do I still need to be on a gluten diet before the endoscopy? Also, is it ok if I still mildly reduce the gluten. As in, can I avoid a whole wheat pasta dinner, but still be eating the peanut butter crackers? That sort of thing. Again I guess that is more of a doctor related question. I just wasn't sure if in order to raise your chance, you have to mass consume gluten or not. (Its already in just about everything to begin with.)
       
    • Excellent point, GFinDC!!! I just assumed that Steph had the endoscopy and not just the antibodies tests.    
    • She (your PCP)  can order a celiac blood panel.  It might not be a complete panel, but it's a start.  Any medical doctor can order one.  A GI is needed for the endoscopy (ulcers, Celiac disease, h.pylori, etc.), HIDA scan (gallbladder)  or colonoscopy (IBS).   Since you just saw her, email/call/write a letter and ask her to order (lab) the celiac panel.  You could go to the lab before or after work.  Pretty easy!  
    • I just now saw the second reply and I see what you mean. Again, the issue is that I may have to go with the gluten until close to the end of the year.

      However, an idea did just come to mind, and that is, can my primary care doctor do such a test? I had normal blood work done, but they didn't really say anything about testing for celiacs. I can get an appointment with my primary care doctor much sooner than a GI.

      When I was talking to my PCP last, I asked her what I should expect as far as testing goes or what she may have been concerned about. Her reply was about a HIDA scan for the gallbladder but also any test needed in case of IBS or Celiacs. Just the way she threw that in there like an after thought and left me hanging kinda had me worried.
    • I am not a doctor that's for sure.  So, I can't even answer your questions.  If you know you have pre-diabetes, you probably are working with a doctor.  Can you email them and ask for a celiac blood panel?   You can work on the weight loss and diabetes -- that you can handle yourself now and take action.  I have diabetes and my glucose readings are fairly normal now without medication and I'm thin.  Being overweight does not cause diabetes.  It's either autoimmune (type 1) or you become insulin resistant (type 2).  You can cut out all sugar and  processed stuff ASAP to help take action and start walking 10,000 steps (helps with the insulin resistance).    But the prediabetes is not going to kill you in the next year.  Whatever's in your gut is more likely going to get you much sooner.  But heck, I'm not a doctor and I don't even know you!
