jknnej-QVC offers kits with their products so if you go to their site they have a whole thing for the bare escentuals brand. You can go to bareescentuals.com to learn more about their products. Also, you can look up kits on ebay but make sure they are new and sealed. I got some good deals from off of their. I love this brand.

Kaiti, Do you know if bare essentials has talc? I'm trying to avoid talc due to respiratory problems. Most of the foundation is powder, right? Thanks, LindaLee

Jonesy,

Wet and wild lipsticks are gluten-free. I'm not sure about thier other products, but the lipstick is really cheap, between $1-$2.

Wendy

are the lip glosses gluten-free also? I have some of that.

Does anyone know if Bare Essentials would last through dancing - i.e. performance makeup? I need it to be able to withstand sweat!

I am sooo confused! I didn't know that I had to change my shampoo face make up and lotion! I use mostly maybelline products, do these contain gluten? And hoe does eye shadow get in your mouth? I use tresme shampoo and conditoner, and aussie hair spray. What about glossing polish for my hair? This is sooooo crazy! So life changing! Also what about victoria secret lip gloss? OmG!!!!!

I use the Bare Escentuals face powder and lipsticks but no not all of their products are gluten free because i was using the blemish cleanser and the acne powder for night time and I broke out terribly when I went to the store it had gluten in it. I have never had a reaction to the face powder or the lipsticks however. Also, yes I love Aveda products but was using their Botanical Kinetics and shampoo and conditioner and that is not gluten free as well as their lip glosses w/ the wand applicators are not But they are very nice and offer a exchange. I'm on the search for more gluten free products because even though I'm very strict with my diet I am still sick all the time and my skin reacts at any given time so I think I need to clear everything in my beauty cabinet that has gluten in it. Does anyone happen to know if Gold Bond lotion has gluten in it? I bought it a couple of weeks ago to clear up a dry rash I developed from a lotion with gluten in it (totally forgot to look at the label!) and it got rid of the rash but was concerned about the maybe having gluten? Thank you

I'm not at all sure why (as I believe that gluten itself isn't the primary cause of gluten intolerance, but the fact that it is incorrectly or only partly digested), but whenever I used a shampoo which contained wheat germ, I couldn't see properly for hours afterwards. Once I realized the shampoo might be the cause, I swapped to another brand, and have not had this problem since.

This must surely have been going into the eyes, as I had no other noticeable symptoms. I still wash my hair exactly the same way I've been doing it all my life. The only difference is now I avoid shampoos which contain wheat germ or any other gluten containing substance.

I need help figuring out the make up and shampoo question. I need cheaper stuff and hair care products for curly hard to contol hair. Right now I'm using Trsseme shampoo and conditioner, herbal essence mousse and cvs brand gel. As far as make up it's a mix of wet and wild concealer, cover girl pressed powder and a number of diffrent eye shadows. I don't use it daily but I can't seem to get rid of break outs.

Does anyone know about Lorac make-up? I have Lorac foundation/powder and was wondering if it was safe. i sure hope to, because it was not cheap :(

Also, what about Almay concealer and eye shadow?

Boots mascara?

Oil of Olay daily moisturizer and eye firming cream?

I also use Desert Essence facial pads, and i noticed it has grain alcohol in it, and i am assuming this is a no-no. Ironically, this is in the thing that worked last summer when I had the worst breakout. Anyone else use this?

Thanks!!!

Crystalkd,

Look at www.everydayminerals.com All of their products are gluten free. I've been using their products, and they are inexpensive and send a free sample pack for the cost of shipping ($3.50 or so) My skin has also completely cleared up since starting with this product and the gluten-free diet. Also, they don't use the bismuth that is in some mineral makeups that some people find itchy. They are in the process of changing their lipstick line, and don't carry mascara. I use Burt's Bees and Covergirl for those two products.

I hope I'm posting this in the right place. I am Celiac and recently started using Sheer Cover. I read on the internet that it has gluten. I called the company today and got a young girl in customer service that read the ingredients to me of their foundation. The only suspect was Tocopherol acetate. Is that why they are saying it is glutinous? Thanks for any help. I love this make-up and don't want to quit using it unless I absolutely have to.

I believe Tocopherol acetate is a Vitamin E acetate...

Vitamin E is often derived from wheat so check the source.

I'm sorry, I was wrong about the Loreal makeup. I had given my product list to my grandmother and I thought it said all products by Loreal are gluten-free. But I just looked at it this morning and it says all Lipsticks by Loreal are gluten-free. My bad... Althought the foundation I got looks fine, no gluten or hidden gluten oppertunities in it as far as I could tell ;)

My appologies

Just called Loreal and they said all of their "wear infinite" eyeshadows were gluten free :)

Just wanted to post another gluten free makeup brand: Lancome.

Their makeup (Absolu and Renergie) and several lipsticks (Color Design, Le Rouge Absolu, Le Lipstick, Le Crayon Contour) are gluten free. They are very helpful if you email them also.

Many of their skin care products are NOT, however, gluten free.

I love the Color Design lipsticks -- they last forever.

Hi! I'm new to the site and being Gluten Free. I've been using morrocco method hair products for more than a year, even before my Celiac diagnosis and their hair products are wonderful and GLUTEN FREE!

Now my whole family uses the products, too. My hair has dramatically gotten fuller and shinier. Before starting it, it was horrible. Stringy, lifeless and dull. Go to their website www.morroccomethod.com

Thank you everyone for all your honesty on these forums, it really helps this newbie during a difficult time. Some people just don't understand.

Attempting to stay on the right track!!!

What about Dermablend, make-up forever & Too Faced products?? I have been trying to research and have been unsuccessful.

Hi Madatgluten! First, let me welcome you to the group. I am very new to this gluten free thing as well (just about a month Gluten-Free) and I can tell you, you have come to the right place for help. Just be sure to check the date on forums. This one is very old and no one has added to it for a while so chances of getting response are lessened.

I checked it out because I have been in the same boat. I am trying to replace all of my cosmetics and skin care with safe products and I have found it very frustrating to find information on what is safe and what isn't. I did find a new cosmetic company that I like. It's called Joelle cosmetics and it's completely gluten free. They produce mineral powder foundations like Bare Minerals but they are substantially cheaper. I have been using it for about a week now and I love it! Joelle can only be purchased online.

I just started using Dessert Essence skin care as well. I tried the Pomegranate Facial wash and skin serum and I like it. Many of their products have tea tree oil (or melaluca) in them which I am allegic to so I have to be careful but I like what I have tried so far. I have heard wonderful things about their shampoos and conditioners so I am going to try them next. You can get them at Whole Foods or online. Online is a little less expensive.

I hope this helps. Good luck.
