Favorite Make-up And Skin Care

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I'v e been going back and forth everyday and thought if we have a "favorite" product we could share what it is. I'm new and going shopping. If someone has a favorite blush, any make-up, skin care,shampoo, conditioner, vitamin, etc It would be so helpful and much simplier. There are tons of products out there, so between the brain frog from being gluttened and the choices it would be so helpful! Thanks LindaLee p.s. I'll learn how to put an icon on eventually.

I use Emenince face cleanser/moisturizer and Bare Minerals and glo Minerals Make-up. Emenince is not all gluten-free though. You have to read the label. But it is all natural, organic ingredients, so if there is gluten in there at all, it will be on the label. I have also read posts from others who have said that Bare Minerals cleansers and stuff are not gluten-free, but I don't use those, just the make-up. And I really like both!

I use Alterna Caviar Shampoo and Conditioner. The hairspray is not gluten-free.

I use Estee Lauder Equalizer foundation, and their lip pencils and eye pencils.

That's all I can think of off the top of my head ...

I use Bare Minerals foundations, Mary Kay eyeshadows, lipsticks and mascara. Oh, and I use Mary Kay Timewise Cleansing Bar.

Ah! I love Mary Kay. I used to sell it (and I am still a consultant, but I don't use a lot of their stuff anymore). I like the Bare Mineral foundation much more than the MK foundation. And their nail polish has gluten in it, by the way. One of the mascara's did too, but they phased that one out, so if yours is less than 3 months old, then you shouldn't have on of the ones that had wheat protien in it. Anyway, cool!

Is Emenince something to get at the health food store? Is the glo minerals from bare minerals? Alot of people seem to like bare essentials they call it - I think its the same

Actually, I get Eminence from my local spa (where my aesthetician was the one who noticed a difference in my skin when I went gluten-free) and she suggested an organic brand. She found this stuff for me, and liked it so much, that she started selling it there! They have a website too, double-u double-u double-u dot eminenceorganics dot com. (I was spelling it wrong earlier, it is e-m-i-n-e-n-c-e). And I think Bare Essentials is the company name, and Bare Minerals is the name of the make-up. glo Minerals is a different mineral make-up company all their own. It is a little more expensive, but they have some things that Bare Minerals don't have, like a pressed powder mineral compact.

We like the shampoo bar from BeanTree because it is just olive oil with no added worries (of course, lye to make it soap! LOL)

I like the aubrey organics line of products. They are very skin safe.

I use their sunblocks and I also use Alba sunblocks.

I use Aubrey's silk transculent powder for face.

Homemade lip gloss/balm is easy to make, and we do that at home.

They have 3 different kinds, they have the regular clear one, then they have one with gold flecks and one with silver I think. The ones with flecks are venom flash.

The lip venom (regular) is great, too!

It's safe. I found it on here somewhere where someone called them. Either way, no reaction :)

I'll be honest, I'm not very careful about makeup or skincare but so far have had no problems. I use a face lotion that I love but it's not a name brand you can buy. It's manufacture by one of the companies that makes the makeup for the larger brands but I think only smaller private labels use it.

Right now I am using a Giorgio Armani foundation, Clinique concealer, Nars and Fresh Blush, Laura Mercier Bronzer and Mac Lipsticks. The only one I checked out is the lipsticks and are confirmed gluten-free. The others must be fine because I have no problems.

For shampoo I'm currently using John Frieda highlighting shampoo, Finesse conditioner and some frizz taming thing from Biolage.

But I kinda just use whatever I get from the beauty sales at work. I rarely ever buy makeup or hair products.

Oh, one thing I do buy is this awesome chapstick. I don't think you can get it in the US. I had a tube that a friend gave me to try after a trip in Europe, and last time DH went to Canada for business he brought me back a ton. It's called Lobello. It's the best Chapstick ever!! (And it's cheap).

I'm using Laura Mercier concealer and Nars lipstick, blush and bronzer -- both brands are completely gluten-free, according to the calls I made.

I swap between a Lorac lip polish and a Delux lipgloss over my chapstick.

I've been swapping between Aveda Sap Moss shampoo (gluten-free -- the conditioner isn't) and Dove -- using the Dove conditioner most of the time.

Thank you! I'm going to order the clear (QVC carries it). My lips are looking older than I do :ph34r:

Just a warning: it stings for a few minutes after you put it on! It's not bad though, just spicy, and the effects are worth it ;)

Oh, and warn your husband before you kiss him! He might not enjoy that much...men aren't into the pain is beauty thing :P

I use coconut oil for lots of stuff - eye make-up remover, moisterizer, eye cream etc. etc.

Coconut oil is also good in the kitchen! I especially like it on air popped popcorn ... half butter, half coconut oil, with some sea salt and Bragg's Liquid Aminos! It's a natural cure for candida.

I've also used it after the shower while I'm still wet as a moisturizer (not the same jar as is used in the kitchen :blink: )

I pop popcorn with it too (separate jar in the kitchen of course :D ).

It is amazing as a moisturizer though!

I also have to sing the praises of popcorn popped old fashion style with coconut oil. UMMMMM!!

It's good to know I can use it as a mousturizer, the ever all-purpose coconut oil :)

And, it's a misconception that coconut oil is bad for you!! It's only the processed, hydrogenated, garbage that is bad. Some saturated fat is good for you and this is one of them! Of course, that's as hard to explain to people as celiac disease is! :P
