It is best to contact the companies to make sure they do not use any gluten in their products because many companies do.

My skin was getting very thin, and would tear really easily. I had to change make-up and lotions!! It took me awhile to find some great lotions, and skin care products that were safe, gluten free, and NO mineral oils. I love, love, love the ar-bonne products. Safe and benificial. I have a list of their products that are gluten free downloaded in my computer, if you want I can send them to you.

Thanks I appreciate the offer, but I think that brand is a litttle more than my budget allows. I sent an email to maybelline and cover girl and am waiting to hear back.

I don't pay full price...I get at least 35% off, and sometimes even pay 50% with specials and stuff. I figure I have to buy vitamins and skin care and so forth...I may as well get a discount on all of it, and I know that it is pure and safe. If you knew how sick I was ... you would be amazed at how well my skin is looking now. I have acess to all the ingredients that is amazing, most companies hide that stuff. If your interested I can get you the discount too, anything for a fellow celiac!!! Just email me.

Good-luck, I hope that you get what you need.

I agree with you on the Lame Advertisement prices. Crazy!! I too sent an email to maybelline and they sent me a list of ingredients to look for in all cosmetics (not just maybelline) that could contain a harmful gluten-containing grain or even oats. If you do not get this list, let me know and I will send it to you.

Dear Samanthasmomma,

Maybelline and CoverGirl clearly list gluten in their cosmetics. I also know Revlon LipGlides are safe. I called on them myself. Sparkling Sangria is my favorite! Wet'n Wild has primarily all gluten-free cosmetics. Only one of their mascaras is not safe.

Sincerely,

NoGluGirl

I have the clan thompson drug smart list and it says physicians formula is not gluten-free. I used it when I was first dx for a while and felt much better when I threw it away and replaced it with another brand. This is what the clan thompson said, " This company does not reccomend any of their products for celiacs as 'almost all of them contain gluten'".

Dear Samanthasmomma,

You are very welcome! :) I do not wear make-up all of the time, but definitely need it when I go to the doctor or visit a family member. I want to look my best! I got that same list you have of ingredients to be careful of from Maybelline. They have great stuff! Right now, CoverGirl foundation, concealer, and powder is on sale at CVS! Another money saving tip is do not buy your make-up at the grocery or department store. Buy it at CVS or somewhere like it. They actually have prices two or three dollars lower per make-up item at times! Wet'n Wild has some great stuff. The prices are reasonable, too.

Sincerely,

NoGluGirl

Hmmm... I've been using the mineral wear powder for a few months now. I don't have the ingredient list anymore but I read everything even before I started worrying about gluten and I thought it was just a bunch of minerals. I didn't have any issues with it even once I started gluten-free. I use it every day. I've got some weird bumps on my skin now, but I've been eating gluten for the past week and a half for the biopsy, and these always occur when I'm ingesting it. I had clear skin when I was NOT ingesting gluten, but using the mineral powder. Topical gluten makes me itch like whoa, but I don't seem itchy with the powder.

I SHOULD be a bit more dilligent about what I stick on my face. I've decided once I land a summer job, the fist thing I'm buying (besides I new phone, mine's dying! arrrg) is that Bare Escentuals stuff. Pretty pricey... the starter kit costs $60. However, the brushes included alone would cost that much. The jars of powder you get with the kit are kind of small compared to the full sized versions, but most people I know who bought it hardly used a fraction of it after several months of daily use. A little bit goes a long, long way. I tried some on at Sephora and wow, silkiest stuff EVER. Even if it is kind of pricey, it's a good product and lasts forever. Though I probably wouldn't consider it unless I used powder every day already. Then again, I never used foundation at all except for dance performances until I started using mineral powder. It's great stuff.

Oh, I just found an ingredient list for some of the Mineral Wear products: http://www.physiciansformula.com/detail_li...p;categorid=108 At the bottom there's an ingredient list that pops up in a new window.

I don't see anything gluten-related, then again I'm fairly new to this all.

I use MAC cosmetics. The company has told me that almost all of their products are gluten free. However, they recommend that I contact them about each individual product that I plan to use so they can determine for sure. I've used several of their products now and have not had any problem with any of them.

Bare Escentuals is all gluten free. However, their make-up uses corn starch and due to my corn allergy their products seem to irritate my skin.

Bare Minerals (the products that are just minerals) are gluten-free. Bare Escentuals does have some products that contain gluten. Some of their lip products and mascaras, and their Skin Revver-Upper for example. You would need to call and check on which, but don't assume that the whole line is gluten-free. :)

Another ingredient (that isn't on the label) in many mineral makeups that can cause skin irritation is bismuth. The only mineral I know of in the BE line that contains cornstarch is the mineral veil, so if the foundations cause irritation (as they do with me), bismuth may be the cause. ;)
