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

I agree!

Well, I just ordered my Lip Venom from QVC.com. While I was on there, I also bought a Kitchenaid hand mixer (my old cheap one quit 2 days ago in the middle of whipping potatoes) and a pair of black crop pants. Somebody stop me :ph34r:

LOL!!! I think we may be related! It's baffling how quickly I can spend money.

It's genetic--anyone with two x chromosomes can spend money very easily, while those with one x and one y are genetically programmed to tell us to stop.

you ever wonder why that is? I mean women spend money on things we "need" like make up and clothes, and pedicures (okay, yeah I really need that) and men spend it on toys :P

Went shopping last night, I bought new shampoo, a few shirts, and hubby buys a movie :rolleyes:

oh, also (on topic!)

I really really like my TIGI Bed Head shampoo, it's gluten free, smells like Oranges.

Too true--in my husband's case it's his old car hobby and toy truck collection. That's why he's so understanding when it comes to my affinity for clothing, shoes and purses! I tell him--at least I wear mine--they're useful :lol:

I kinda lied anyway ... he's never really told me to stop! :P

He spends his in a lump sum usually ... last time it was a new Corvette! :blink:

Careful with Tigi, they are not all gluten-free! Dumb blonde is not.

* alba botanicals body creams & face moisturizer (I get dry skin easily)

* vit e oil (currently using for the scar on my face)

* natural crystal deoderant

* glycerine based soaps

* trader joe's botanical shampoo/conditioner

Oh yeah DH is great about my shopping. He actually kinda thinks it's funny sometimes. My job doesn't exactly help my shopping addiction (or for that matter what a normal perception of prices are).

I was wondering about that. I also have high cholesterol and thought that was one to stay away from. Is that what they were using in the movie theaters that everybody was saying was bad? I love the idea of all the uses yawl have for this with removing makeup and lotion etc. and it being so simple without all the other junk in it. Thank you all for all these inputs. I love knowing what works for everybody and I hope you all do too.

Sorry this is off on a tangent, but....

jersey, do you order from QVC a lot?? What's it like? I am always nervous that what you see on TV isn't what you'll get.

I think the movie theater stuff was hydrogenated, but can't remember. Some theaters still use it. I had some great popcorn recently that was loaded with it! I always ask to read the ingredients of the butter topping if I am at a theater I haven't been to before. Sure tastes better!

I'd do a google search for coconut oil's health benefits and effects on cholesterol if I had a cholesterol problem. I don't know the answer to that.

I get Lumene at CVS which is a drugstore on the east Coast (I'm not sure where else it is). Lavera I got at Whole Foods. Pretty sure the whole line is gluten-free.

They also have a website http://www.lavera-usa.com/

Lumene is from Finland and the whole line is gluten-free EXCEPT for any of the hydra-drop makeup 9these contain oats). You can order it through CVS's website:

Julie--I do order from them. They have a lot of brands all in one place--and a lot of variety. I tend to go on-line as opposed to watching on TV. For instance, they carry Smashbox, Bare Escantuals, Prescriptives, Philosophy, Mally, Laura Geller, Lorac, and several other makeup lines that can be hard to find in stores. I love Birkenstock sandals, and they have a good selection there, too. They have an unconditional 30 day guarantee--so you're not stuck with anything that you don't like. The ordering process is quick and easy (of course :D ) and I have found the customer service is good. I would suggest going to their website and take a look at what they have there--that will give you an idea if it is for you. :)

WoW!

I'm even more confused.

As I read down this thread...Many of you are still using products with gluten... or maybe you just don't know it? Or this isn't a gluten free list?

Which products? Everything I use, I have verified gluten-free. Unless something has changed?

I sure hope it is! I have drawers full of the gluten stuff. What do we do now? Should I start scratching out of my shopping notebook???? LindaLee

Yeah I believe it was hydrogenated. Hydrogenated coconut oil is nothing like the pure organic real stuff. There were studies done years and years ago that determined coconut oil was harmful, but the studies used hydrogenated oil.

good. I avoid that hydrogenated oil. They have really got me wanting some popcorn with it. I'm on a healing diet and corn is out.

What products on here contain gluten? To be honest the only ones I would worry about are foundation, face mosisturizer, lipsticks, shampoo & conditioner. I mean those are the only things I could potentially ingest. I don't make a habit of eating my blush or mascara. LOL!!

Thanks jersey! I do a lot of ordering on-line, so I'll check out the website. I worried about the quality of the products, but from what you list here sounds like they have a lot of reputable brands.

I've been interested in the Bare Minerals make-up. Is it good stuff??

You don't have to have popcorn for your coconut oil ... I use it on everything from toast to cooking oil. You can use it as a butter substitute.

I'm wondering what products contain gluten as well ...
