Makeup Product Regarding Gluten

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Does anyone use or used, Loreal True Match Natural (mineral foundation)? I have researched and do not think it contains gluten. Has anyone had any problems with it? Does anyone know for certain if it is gluten/wheat free? (Or if you have used loreal skin products in general)

Thanks!

I've only used a L'oreal moisturizer and didn't have any problems with it but have not used their makeup.

I've now switched to Garnier and like their moisturizer more than L'oreal.

Cosmetics and personal care products are the most difficult to check for gluten. The one thing that's really important to be gluten-free is lipstick and lip balm since they can be ingested.

Michelle L, I noticed that you recently joined so I'm assuming that you are new to this? If so, it can be very difficult to figure out if your cosmetics are gluten free or not. You may want to first look at the ingredients on the packaging and see if any wheat ingredients stand out. If they don't, try contacting the manufacturer.

I don't use any of the Loreal products so can't help out on that front.

I know that many people on this forum like the Everyday Minerals - do a search on here and you will see tons of messages. They are very reasonably priced. I use Bare Escentuals which is also gluten free for foundation and concealor. I use Lancome eye shadow, lipstick and mascara(definicils) which I have confirmed by calling them that they are gluten free. I also use Burts Bees lipshimmers, but understand they will no longer say their products are gluten-free so I will have to re-evaluate that.

Sorry I couldn't help on the Loreal, but hopefully someone else on here uses their products and can comment.

Okay, thanks for all the makeup tips! I was thinking about switching to Bare Escentuals or another mineral powder I know for sure is gluten free!

One question..do you think the foundation or face wash I was using could have an effect on my face if it did have gluten/wheat? Only wondering because I noticed my face had gotten somewhat puffier/bloated over the past year...but i dont know if this has anything to do with makeup/skin care products or more because of the previous gluten foods I had been eating?

I would suspect, though I wouldn't say 100%, that any reaction you would have from foundation or face wash would be more along the lines of itchy skin or a rash. I switched my shampoo from one that had wheat in it because it was making my scalp itch. I think puffiness and bloating would generally be more due to toxins you've eaten (i.e. gluten).

Thank you all so much for the make-up discussion. I was wondering if anyone knew of safe gluten free chapstick, lip balm,etc.? I did contact a few companies, but it is difficult to wade through all the "25 $" words naming the ingredients.

I actually do use Loreal true match foundation and have had no issues. It really does not get near my mouth. I wash my hands well afterward.

Like other people said, watch the lip color/balm! I use Desert Essence Organics Lip Tints.

Best,

Pondy

Okay, thats kind of what I was thinking too. Even though I am gluten/dairy free, my face puffiness isnt going away. I have a list of my allergies and so I more or less think I know what to stay away from....and drink a lot of water. So I dont know what could be causing it! Just trying to think of diff. things.

I wonder if the puffiness could be due to inflammation. If you are new to this, you could still have some inflammation in your body. Or, maybe an allergy to some of the ingredients in the products you are using? It is so hard to tell. I hope you find out what it is.

I had/have some puffiness that isn't all fat.

About 2 months gluten-free my eyes started swelling from Devita skin care products that are labeled "gluten sensitive safe". They use regular oats and de-germed wheat germ oil. Was fine for years until 2 months gluten-free then whammy.

So, you never know....

Btw it wasn't just "puffy", it was obviously swollen. Different than it had ever looked.

I use MyChelle products and one Origins product that appears gluten-free. So far so good.
