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.

    • A good diet for avoiding type 2 diabetes
      Hi everyone.  There is a lot in the press here in the UK about prediabetes and diabetes.  I am an apple shape, as opposed to a pear, which I gather puts me more at risk.  I have a lot of relatives with types 1 and 2 diabetes.  I was diagnosed with celiac disease three years ago and the diet has been going so well that I am now putting on weight - I realise I have been eating far too many nice goodies from the Gluten Free Cake Aisle at Marks & Spencers, etc.   I had a bit of a shock this week as I have been very thirsty and as per usual started panicking so instead of doing that my neighbour encouraged me to see my doctor.  Good plan. The preliminary tests show no sugar in my urine; my blood glucose was high normal but I had just eaten.  She is sending me off for one of those HbaIC tests I think it is called just to be sure but she says she thinks I will be fine.  But to cut a long story short, I realise I have got to sort out this sweet tooth of mine. Wake up time! But I am confused. I have been searching a lot on line and there seems to be such contradictory information.  Only this week there was a news item on the BBC about the argument for fewer carbs/full fat - and then Public Health England disputing it.  Then, to go back to the original argument, the BBC filmed a chap at the doctors who had cut his carbs and ate full fat (as well as healthy fruit & veg) and he had lost weight and come off his diabetes meds. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/health-36345768 I'm thinking prevention is better than cure so I wanted to know, can anyone recommend a website or book that sets out a sensible eating plan, tried and tested, that they have discovered.    Or just any tips?  And I should say - I do get hungry between meals and for many years have suffered from the shakes when I don't eat enough - what is good food to eat for snacking?
    • How do you know what's causing what?
      I am in same boat, yesterday my stomach was churning and bloated and I don't know what the cause was.  How about keeping a food diary? Just note what you ate and how you feel. A few days may be sufficient to discern a pattern, either some rogue product or a previously unknown intolerance. I have read that after gluten is removed further intolerances which were hidden can become apparent.  I don't know whether you could cut yourself some slack from a full vegan approach whilst your body heals? If not, maybe you could substitute say milk with coconut milk or similar to give your body a break whilst keeping calcium levels high? If you join coeliac uk you can check your sauces etc on their gluten-free database, they'll also send you a book which became my bible until I got a hang of which brands I could eat safely. Finally, have you excluded cross contamination from pots and pans, toasters, shared condiments etc?  Good luck!
    • Blood results - odd
      My results were similar – Low ferritin but normal B12. Although my ferritin levels were low, my Iron serum levels were normal. So might be worth getting your iron levels checked out to see if you have any deficiency in Iron. Also I was deficient in Vitamin D, which is perhaps more of a problem in England rather than the US - Our milk isn’t supplemented with vit D and we obviously have less sunshine.
    • How do you know what's causing what?
      Hi Kam, If you are going to continue the celiac testing with an endoscopy, you need to keep eating gluten until it's done. It can be hard for vegetarians to keep their vitamin D levels up.   This Vitamin D  Council link has some good info on ways to boost your levels. https://www.vitamindcouncil.org/about-vitamin-d/
    • Blood results - odd
      Your ferritin was very low!  My result was a 2 when I was diagnosed.    I hard a hard time breathing and the fatigue was awful due to low hemoglobin levels.  But after going gluten free and taking iron for a few months, I quickly recovered from iron-deficiency anemia.  I still have hemologobin levels that are slightly below range due to Thalassemia which is genetic and my body has adjusted for it.   My B12 and folate levels are  super high.  My B12 is over 2000!  Yeah, I googled and ruled out cancers, etc.  Looks like some of us do not process man-made B12 often included in supplements.  I opted for natural sources of B-12 and folate and my levels have come down a bit.   Let us know your results.  Read the Newbie 101 section under "Coping" within this forum for tips.   Be patient.  It can take months, to years to feel good.  But it will happen!

      Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you?  Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉  Do you know how to fix it?  You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do

      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.
