    Do you have questions about celiac disease or the gluten-free diet?

Recommended Posts

For five days I have had the classic D, and lower back pain is comming back. I am fairly confident it is not a food issue as I have been really careful and check with the Delfi List often.

I think it is in the cosmetics. This is what I use daily:

Oil of Olay Soap

Dove Sampoo

Lubridurm Cream (no oats)

Crest

Clinique Lipstick and Burt's Bees

Cover Girl Blush (I try to be careful as don't know if it is gluten-free)

Aleve for headaches

Mac and Bare Essentials are not available any where close. We cook on the grill alot and only use 100% hardwood charcoal. I can't think of anything else new to my diet other than Ragu Pizza Sauce with eggplant and onions (as a side dish, no crust obviously).

Does anything ring a bell for anyone.

**Could it be the Clinique Lipstick? If so are they any CVS brands that are gluten-free?

Thanks for your help. Lisa

I feel like I am playing a game show. Ok thanks for joining us for this eppisode of "Find the Hidden Gluten" :lol:

I noticed the other day that my favorite "flavor" of the oil of olay soap is now "with oats". :ph34r: I used to use the purple label bottle. Check to see if that is the same kind you used.

My Cover Girl blush (wich I just threw away) had oat flour listed as an ingredient. If there isn't an ingredient label on yours, you may want to throw it away and start over again just in case. Unless of course you find out where the mystery gluten is coming from. I'm positive that mine was Cover Girl and the oat flour was clearly labeled on mine.

Aleve is gluten free. Crest is gluten free. The Burt's Bees Beeswax lip balm is gluten free. I don't know for sure about any of the others. I believe Unliver (Dove shampoo) pledges to clearly list gluten containing ingredients. Maybe someone else could verify this since I'm not positive.

Hi Lisa--My vote would be either the lipstick or the blush--the rest looks ok to me. I get Neutrogena Moistureshine Lip Gloss and Lipsticks at CVS. Lots of options there.

Bare Escentuals are available at sephora.com and at qvc.com.

Yes, Unilever will list everything that is in it as I have spoken with them personally. Actually 2 different people called me back to assure me of it.

Lisa, I tried to get Clnique ingredients and haven't had luck so far - the website was useless and I haven't contacted the company yet. I did get a response from L'Oreal - I use their Endless 8-hour Lipstick (color is 830 - "naked ambition" - a pinkish neutral that seems to look great on everybody, FYI!) Here's the nice note they sent:

February 22, 2006

This dictionary lists FDA-approved names.

Endless 8 Hour Comfortable Lipcolour does not contain Gluten.

Thank you all, my good friends here. I do think that it is the Clinique lipstick. I will revert back to Burts Bees lip gloss for many days to verify.

The Cover Girl Blush has not effected me, but going out tomorrow. Any suggestions for blush. I am looking at the last week and the only introduction was the Clinique lipstick. (at $15.00).

Lipsticks-----L'Oreal, Endless - eight hours

Neurtrogema - Gloss and Lipstick - Gluten Free Available at CVS.

I most likely could work out this problem, but there are so many new people that post and I feel that this will help. I have been gluten free since August 2005 and there are still issues that we all deal with in our day to day lives. There are traps every day that we cal fall into.

Thank you all for your posts and I am sure that it will be helpful to many others. That's what we are all about. Helping each other.

Lisa---I hope you are feeling better! I know it is so frustrating when you aren't sure what the problem is. Hopefully, maybe the other suggestions will have taken care of the problem. I take it you haven't been eating out lately? Just wanted to double check.

Lisa, I bought a Clinique lipstick a couple of weeks ago. The salesperson read the ingredients for me and told me it was wheat free (I have bad eyesight). Anyway, when I got home I had my kids double check and guess what - YES it contains wheat.

So I had to take it back - not impressed let me tell you. I bought an Elizabeth Arden one instead.

I think its definitely your lipstick!

If you search for Clinique on here I know there is a post about it. I know my lipsticks were ok from there. But some of their stuff does have gluten.

I called my local McRae's clinique counter and they said all the lipsticks were gluten-free. I had my doubts tat the time since the girl didn't sound very knowlegeable. She was just reading ingredient lists, but she was really trying to help. For now i"m using chapstick!

Clinique is under a huge umbrella of companies including MAC, Estee Lauder i think, and several others.

They always list gluten ingredients, and while it won't always be clear, it will always be listed. The only ingredients on a list that were gluten and didn't say "wheat" or "oats" is when they used the scientific name. I believe trictum vulgare is the scientific name for wheat. Make sure you look for that.

I found the post with the full listing of ingredients!

I wrote to a customer service rep for Clinique (I believe her e-mail was posted here somewhere, her name was Justine I believe, I will look for my e-mail)...

She checked all of the products from Clinique that I use, and Some of my lipsticks were OK, some were not. I believe the Color Surge ones were, but other ones were not... this was the e-mail from the "generic" customer service... but this other lady was super helpful... I'm still trying to find it... but here is the ones I asked about....

"Thank you for your interest in Clinique.

With regard to your inquiry, the following products do not contain gluten,

Glosswear for Lips

Long Last Soft Shine Lipstick

Foaming Mousse Cleanser

Acne Solutions Antibacterial Facial Soap

Clarifying Lotion 3

Rinse-off eye makeup solvent

Acne Solutions Cleansing Foam

Pore minimizer Thermal-active skin refiner

Moisture Surge Extra thirsty skin relief oil free

However, Dramatically Different Moisture Gel does contain a barley extract &

Repairwear Intensive Eye Cream contains barley and wheat germ extract.

We trust that the above addresses your concern. We hope you will look to

Clinique for all your skin care and fragrance needs.

Sincerely,

David Cuffari
