I have used MAC in the past and that's probably a good portion of it. I suspect their vit e is not gluten free because I have used products that they say are gluten-free and reacted. I also suspect cross contamination. I feel your pain....luckily my husband uses what I buy so I'm fairly safe.

I don't understand why your gluten-free hasn't stopped wearing make-up, spray tans, and body spray when she's going to see you.

Hey! I know this topic is old but I thought I'd put in my two cents :-)

I am super, super sensitive and one of the worst glutenings I have ever had was from my hair conditioner. When I read the ingredients, there was actually wheat protein on there! After that I threw out all my personal care products and just bought gluten free ones.

So if your girlfriend is having a shower BEFORE she sees you she might be glutening her hair!

I love desert essence organics. They smell yummy and are 100% gluten free.

Did you ever find out what was making you sick?

 

Hey this is a bit late lol to say the least. Yes we found a few things omg that was a furstrating time we would fight alot, anyway she was using radox bodywash which had Camolile in it. I must of spelt that wrong but that was a really bad encounter when i ingested that, and also her M.A.C blusher but most her make up Clinique now and the sentivity has went down i think. Sorry to hear your super sensitive i think im pretty bad aswell but i did eat out recently and not get sick that was a nice suprise.

 

I have had to switch all shampoo/conditioner and shower gel. I am now looking into make-up too.

 

How did u get on with your make up? I still remember a few that were ok if ur still looking.

I can't remember the university, but there was a study done about how long allergens transfer via saliva after eating.  It was determined that someone kissing a person who ate something the other person is allergic to can remain in saliva for over 4 hours after eating, flossing and brushing teeth.  So gluten may be transferring to you when you kiss your girlfriend.  Is it practical to ask somone not to eat for 5 hours before seeing you?  Don't know.

They don't have to not eat at all, just not eat gluten or the allergen.   That's a lot easier and more reasonable to ask.
