Cosmetic Gluten Nightmare!

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I keep getting glutened and I believe lip gloss/lipsticks have been the culprit. I also have really bad breakouts if I use anything on my skin that contains gluten.

I'm having a hard time finding makeup that is gluten-free.. I'm currently using covergirl foundation, powder, mascara and lipstain (i'm pretty sure this one is NOT gluten-free!!!)

I also have Quo products (I use their blush and have used their foundation, lip gloss and powder faithfully in the past, but I emailed them and got a response saying they could not guarantee anything they had was gluten-free...sigh)

I have Korres lip butter which I think I am reacting too as well. The only safe thing for my lips I have currently seems to be my Burts Bees lip gloss!

Any info you have on the products listed above or any good products that are not too expensive and easy to find would be muchly appreciated!!

Thanks for your help :).

I wish I could help, but am finding myself in the same boat. Many people on here post about everyday minerals and afterglow cosmetics, but I don't care for loose powders and am over the whole ordering thing. I used to use some Avon, but they are so inconsistent I gave up. Skincare is down to Purpose and Cetaphil cleansers. I am almost out of the moisturizer that I was using, that of course was discontinued and replaced with something that's wheat protein based. Supposedly many products from Nars, Smashbox, Lancome and several other high end lines are safe. Clinique has never responded to any of my requests for information on specific products, as they are more affordable than Lancome or Nars. Many people seem to like Burt's Bees lip shimmers. I honestly have no clue when it comes to drugstore brands, though I did check with Almay a couple of months ago and none of their foundations were safe, all had wheat ingredients in them.

Once again, it's pricey but worth it if you are highly sensitive: Lancome Le Rouge Absolu lipstick line. I've used this for years with no problems- it also LASTS so you don't use as much.

don't know about the others but I also like Ecco Bella available at Whole Foods.

Good luck!

There are currently two brands (owned by the same parent company) that say all of their products are gluten free. NARS and Shisheido. Smashbox is pretty good, with most everything safe but the mascara.

If you do a search here you will find lots of lists of gluten-free makeups. I posted a list of safe things from korres a while back-- the lipbalm is NOT on it.

I know the brands I mentioned are more expensive, but I would rather have fewer safe things than lots of iffy stuff that makes me sick. Quality vs. quantitiy.

If you just want a lipbalm, try carmex.

This is what I use on a regular basis:

Shampoo: California Baby (for sensitive adults too) found at Target in the baby section. (Most Dove and Suave products are gluten-free too :)

Soap: Burt's Bees radiance bar (Target)

Hand Soap: Softsoap original (gluten-free )

Moisturizer: Burt's Bees radiance day creme (very small amount) (Target) or Ageless night creme

Make-up line: Bare minerals (I know its powder and some ppl don't like it) I have oily skin and it works great, I am fair skinned and it has an SPF in the foundation. I like that the whole line is gluten-free! (carried by a local beauty shop)

Lip Gloss: Burts bees chapstik, lip shimmer, and Bare minerals lip gloss, all great but BM is more of a lipstick.

**Cover girl does have some gluten-free products but you have to write them and stay on top of it if they change ingredients. To much hassle for me!***

Acne cleanser and treatments: New Burt's Bees Natural Acne Solutions! I love it!

Sunscreen: Coppertone and Burt's Bees

Body Lotion: you guessed it Burt's Bees honey/milk.

First Aid cream/Anti-itch for my skin rashes: California Baby Calendula cream ROCKS!

I don't like ordering beauty products online so I stick to things I can get my hands on!

Hi Lisa!

Is the lancome lipstick you are using also Soy Free? I would love to try it but I am intolerant to soy.

Thanks a million,

Sylviaann

For foundation I use: Aromaleigh mineral foundation, eye shadows, and blushes (They are not specifically marketed as gluten free like Everday Minerals, but the ingredients are clearly listed on their web site and I have never had a problem.)

I also use Real Purity liquid foundation and mascara and deodorant.

For soap: I use Neolia Olive Oil soap from Costco. When I buy soap I stick with a cold processed soap that I either make or buy with clear ingredients labeled.

For Face Lotion: I use California Baby Super Sensitive Everyday Lotion

For lip gloss: I use Bare Minerals Buxom

For lip balm: Badger Balm

For body lotion: Desert Essence Organics

Toothpaste: Crest

Face wash: currently Mychelle
