Hi, I was recently diagnosed with celiac. I knew I had a gluten intolerance, as well as multiple foods, but I didn't know how severe it was till years later. I'm still trying to figure out the foods I react to and what I can eat. I'm having a hard time with it. I just discovered that my favorite face wash, Origins checks and balances, has wheat in it! I've been using it for years. So, I'm assuming that I have to start from scratch and go through all my soaps, makeup, lotions, shampoos, cleaning products, etc. and find gluten-free products. Does anyone recommend a good face wash that they use or know another one by Origins that does not have gluten in it? How about makeup? I am using Bare Minerals and I'm pretty sure there is no gluten in it. I also use Cover Girl, Maybelline, Revlon, Almay, Clinique, and Victoria's Secret makeup. Does anyone know if these contain gluten or does it depend on the particular product? This is so frustrating. I'm also struggling financially, so if I could find some good gluten-free products that are decently priced that would be great. Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated!! Thanks!

Tracey

I have sensitive skin on top of celiac. What has worked the BEST for me is this...

Tea Tree bar soap - Desert Essence brand - for face & body.

Unscented Desert Essence Organics brand face & body lotion (very emollient, NOT watery).

Lip Tints - Desert Essence Organics brand.

Ecco Bella brand cover-up.

I'm kina granola so that is all the 'makeup' I use.

All can be found online at Lucky Vitamin.com - reasonably priced.

Best,

Pondy

I don't use makeup so I am no help there. I use Garneir shampoos, conditioners, face wash and facial products. They label clearly. Dove and Suave also label well. If you don't see gluten ingredients clearly listed they are safe.

Thank you! I appreciate the advice. :D I don't see any obvious gluten ingredients, but with all the reading I'm doing on this forum, I'm not so sure. What about hydrolyzed wheat protein? There are mixed reviews on this..some say it's ok to use, and some say not to use it. ??

I use Mac and Sephora make up but I do not use conceiler so not sure about that. You still need to read the labels and the sales girl was great help. I have been gluten from my lipstick before so I was real careful finding make up.

Personally I avoid it. Since it takes a very small amount of gluten to cause the antibody reaction I feel it is better safe than sorry.

I sent an email to the company that makes Theraderm and received this response:

Thanks for your question.

I use Neutrogena Naturals face wash. It's available at most drug stores and is gluten free. Burts Bees lip shimmers are also gluten free (although not all BB products are. Their shampoos have gluten.) Blistex is gluten free. I also use Garnier hair gel. I can't remember the name but it says that it's made with 98% natural ingredients on the front. I used Whole Foods Everyday 365 shampoo. It's not as cheap as drugstore brands, but not actually that expensive. All of the above I called or checked the company websites to confirm. Other people on this site have recommended Bare Minerals as being gluten-free. Cetaphil does not guarantee their products to be gluten free, but CeraVe is gluten-free.

Hope the info helps.

I love MyChelle and Andalou skin care. I use one Origins product, you just have to read the label. MyChelles unscented cucumber wash is great. Origins Brighter by Nature pads are wonderful.

I use Bare Minerals foundation and buy most of my cosmetics from Natural Solutions, particularly Earth's Beauty brand. I use Burt's Bees lip gloss. Vanicream lotion and jojoba oil for my skin. Shampoo is JR Ligget's bar shampoo (love it because its mild and travels well).

Hi! I use

John Frieda's Roots Awakening (no gluten or dyes),

Hamadi leave in shea conditioning cream with lavender

and Hamadi shea conditioning spray

Renpure Organics Conditioner (no gluten, parabens, sulfates, dyes),

Neutrogena Moistureshine Lipgloss,

Milani Lipstick,

Physician's Formula (Eye Shimmers in Hazel, Eye Shimmers Eyeliner in Hazel and Glam Brown, Eye Liner, Undereye concealer, Happy Booster Bronzer and Blush, Organics Mascara).

Sephora eyeshadow

Yardley of London soaps

Vanicream and Vaniply lotions

Burts Bees Body Milk

Salma Hayek Nuance Dual Phase Jojoba and Coconut Body Oil

I don't use foundations, matting agents, or veils- so I can't give you recommendations there. I have pretty sensitive skin, and I've found them far too irritating to bother.

Oh- I also can't vouch for these companies personally, having not used them myself. I have however heard very good things about them.

Red Apple Lipstick has developed a line of cruelty free, gluten free lipsticks that advertise on here occasionally in sidebars. The colors look luscious, and the line is cruelty free! I also have it on good authority that the cosmetic chemist is developing a line of eyeliners that will be available in about 4-6 months or so.

Also, Afterglow Cosmetics has an *amazing* looking line that's just a little out of my price range. I might break down though and buy a few things, because holy wow, those colors look stunning.

I adore Andalou skin cremes...the first I've found that actually get rid of flakiness and leave my face feeling supple and lifted, and they're gluten free.  MyChelle is awesome, I agree.  Just spoke to them on the phone and they're certified gluten-free.
