Would You Use These Be Cleanser And Moisturizer?

Recommended Posts

Looking for feedback on the ingredients of these two Bare Escentuals (Bare Minerals) products. I've used them for years and really truly adore them. Seriously. I've tried a dozen other things for my combo, acne prone skin like Cerave, Cetaphil, Garnier, etc and keep coming back to them. I'm not diagnosed celiac (blood test neg) and don't have DH. Clearly I'm not eating these things but I do use the cleanser in the shower so I know it runs down my face/mouth and obviously the moisturizer would be on my hands after applying. Here's the ingredients. Both contain an oat ingredient. Would you continue to use them?

I was ok using gluten products on my skin....until I wasn't.

If it works for you, and you don't feel glutened then great. But if you don't think you're improving or feel glutened then I'd try eliminating all gluten including skin care.

FYI my reaction was swelling eyes and itchy fingers/hands- so I may have an allergic reaction - although I don't experience those reactions if I touch gluten (cereal, bread). I think I have a strong reaction to wheat germ oil and oat extracts, which is what you tend to find in skin care.

I use a product on my face that has Avena Sativa (Oat) Kernel Extract in it as well. My only gluten symptoms are stomach problems, so I am hoping that whatever I put on my face doesn't affect that, but I am still looking for answers. Since I use it every night I haven't found out if I feel better when I am not using it. Since going gluten free almost three months ago I have gotten somewhat better, but not completely--I am worried that it's because of this product I am using, but it seems kind of illogical that it would bother my stomach. I am not very sensitive, anyway.

Keep me posted on what you find out/experiment! Best of luck.
