Lip Product Survey!

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone, I'm doing a research project on lip products in hopes of finding out which ones are gluten-free or not. I want to test the most popular lip products used by celiacs (both men and women). Do you mind sharing which products you use? Also could you share which ones you used to use (if you found out that they had gluten in them don't use them anymore)? You just have to post the brand of the product and the type. For example, Maybelline (brand) shiny-licious lipgloss (type).

Thanks!

I use:

ELF super glossy lip shines SPF 15

I love both and was told (by the companies) both were gluten-free...

Not to hijack, but I have a question for you ladies using the Burt's Bees lip balms......what, specifically are you using?

I looked at several in the store the other day, and the ones in the slim tube have tocopherol in them, but the ones in the squeeze tube didn't appear to. I guess I'm unclear on whether tocopherol is actually a problem? Also, I'm pretty picky and prefer a more waxy type lip balm as opposed to a more gloss type (they usually feel too sticky for me).

TIA!

*sorry for the hijack! :unsure:


Dx Celiac 08/22/08

Iron Deficient Anemia / Blood Clotting Disorder / Severe Vit D Deficiency / Low Cortisol / Progesterone/Testosterone Deficient

Persisting Sx: bouts of extreme fatigue, dry itchy skin, dry gritty eyes, bouts of brain fog and terrible short term memory, hair loss, hypoglycemic tendencies, low body temps, low BP, cold hands and feet

UPDATE: Began BHRT 9/22/10 and it made a world of difference, for about 2 weeks. Hair loss stopped almost completely, energy levels way up and felt 19 again! Going back for a booster this week....

No need to be sorry :D That's a great question.

It's true that we need to investigate the source of tocopherol/vitamin E since it can be derived from wheat.

In the case of Burt's Bees--they state that theirs is sourced from soy.

For moisture, carmex wins hands down. The second choice is burt's bees-- the honey scented one (not peppermint or pomegranate, which irritate me)

For lipsticks I like Clinique different, Chanel "darling", and 100% pure lipgloss and cheek/lip tint. I also like the burt's bees shimmers in the tube type applicators.

Do not use Aveda products. I got zapped bad by a lipgloss from them.

I e-mailed Chanel several months ago and they stated all of their lip covers....gloss and lipstick are gluten free. I am sorry I did not save the e-mail to forward but unless things have changed over the last couple of months they are safe.
