Ok, So I read on here that Clinique has a book that lists what has what... so I went to the store. They had a book, but didn't say that these were gluten free...

So read labels, and more labels, and then tried some stuff...

I got a cleanser and a foundation.

I got

"Comforting Cream Cleanser"

and

"Super Balanced Make-up"

I also go free samples of:

Extra Mild Face Soap

Dramatically Different moisturizing lotion

Clarifying lotion

Anyone use these products? I read the ingredients over and over, I see nothing, but I'm worried still!

I know the last 3 things are gluten-free (I use them and confirmed with Clinique), but not sure about the first 2. I think the "list" they have at their counter will say the ingredients, but not necessarily in plain English (so you can't really tell what is wheat, etc.). You can email Clinique with the specific items and they will respond fairly quickly to say if it is gluten-free or not.

I went online to chat with a "consultant" and she gave me a number to call (there are no numbers on any bottle!).

I got a number but have to call at work tomorrow *grrr*

I jsut used the 3 step, it worked nice.

I think the place is called Global Customer Care or something like that, and I know the hours were something like the standard banking hours east coast. I didn't write all the details down, just the number. But the number is..... 1-866-707-2100

I hate when the companies don't post numbers... Grr.

Bah

Yay!

Ok I just got off the phone with Clinique,

They don't have the Comforting Cream Cleanser, or the Clarifiying Lotion (number 1) tested, but she will e-mail the Chemists and e-mail me with the information.

The Super Balanced Makeup has Soy.

The Dramatically Different Mosturizer has Corn.

They also test for the presence of Rice.

But that number was great, didn't even sit on hold long.

Thank you for posting about Clinique. I have had great luck with many of their products. A few have caused me problems and I didn't know why. One of them is the All About Eyes I'm sure.

I'm working through the list of Clinique products I have, and have been trying to answers from the company. I'll post more when I know. I've written two emails and no answers yet.

Currently I am using facial soap mild, clarifying 1, foundation, make-up remover, eye make-up remover, tint for eyes and blusher that are gluten free as best as I can determine.

The long lash mascara is not, and the lipsticks I have are not. 7 day scrub has gluten. Repairwear and all about eyes as mentioned here. I think there may be one mascara that is okay and several lipsticks except that I am also trying to avoid bismuth. Looks like maybe one lipstick will be okay, still trying to figure it out.

I found a recipe about making a "scrub" with soap and soda. Tried it with ivory soap and it works pretty well. When it is gone I'll try with the clinique facial soap.

All about Eyes is a double whammy wheat bran and barley!

I have found clinique to be really good about getting back to me, only problem is quite a few they still need to contact the chemist.... so that takes time. If you want to know right away, call the number posted above. Of course.. that's only if they arn't still checking with the chemist.

The I believe the Mild liquid Facial soap has barley in it. I think it's right on the list of ingredients. The bar is fine, and the best bar soap I have ever used on my face. I think I had a reaction to perfectly real foundation. It was kinda old, and it might have not even been that, so I just threw it out and got the Superbalanced foundation. That stuff is great, it absorbs sweat! I wore it on a 90 degree day, and it didn't run down my face! I got the rinse off foaming cleanser, I love it! Oh I VERY highly reccomend the Moisture Surge Thirsty Skin Relief if you have dry skin. It is totally not greasy, just soaks right in.

They haven't confirmed for me about clarifiyng lotion #1, but i am using it 2 times a day and no problems.

Sunny: Please post phone number for Clinique as I have to call too...

Hi, I find it interesting that your hubby was misdiagnosed with IBS and Colitis. I was as well and one very rude doctor then went on to say if I had bowel problems it was because i was silly enough to live in India, AS IF IT IS HIS BUSINESS WHERE I CHOOSE TO LIVE! and how dare he discriminate against other countries anyway. I had to go to Bangkok, Thailand to get a proper diagnosis. They were very sweet, helpful and understanding as well. I'm sorry about your husband, I hope he can battle through...

sincerelySue

There are lots of Gluten free products, the trick is finding them! I use clinique because I have sensitive skin, very dry skin and hate fragrance (all clinique is fragrance free). They are more than just cosmestics, they are created by dermatologists. I also like how I can go to the counter and say, I need this... help! I just feel very overwhelmed when looking in a drug store.

You need to be careful of all personal products. If you have just celiac, if you ingest some, it will make you sick, if you have Dermatitis Hepaformis (sp?) it will cause a rash. I found out about a month in from being gluten-free that the shampoo I was using because my hair was thinning and falling out, had wheat in it... making my hair thin and fall out! (that is also attributed to malnutrion from celiac).

Anyway, don't feel like you have to use Clinique, most brands have gluten free options, and what brand you like best is up to you.

I have seen several references on this forum that dramatically different moisturizing lotion is gluten-free. I have been using it without obvious problems so far. So that matches this information Clinique just sent me.

I don't know. Maybe ask in a new thread as people who don't use Clinique might not view the thread here. Somebody probably knows. I think it is pretty likely the grain is wheat, corn or barley.

Thanks to everyone that did the research on these products. I have now pinpointed that the "all about eyes" cream is what has been causing this rash on my face. Ive been using it for years, but the rash just showed up about a month ago, so I didn't connect the two until I went to my dermatologist and she said it looked like an allergic reaction to something. Then I started to research.

Thank you again!!! Does anyone have any suggestions on a replacement eye cream? I know Arbon has good stuff, and it's all gluten-free, but it's really expensive.

I have used Cinique products since I was 16 (so over 30 years!) I was diagnosed with a wheat allergy/gluten intollerance back in 2008 and have been gluten-free since that time. I have had no issues with any of the clinique products. At this time I use the Perfectly Real Makeup. I have tried many of their samples as I always purchase my clinque during bonus times. I hope this helps.

    • You make a good point about being neurotic. I'm slowly getting better. I guess time will tell. But thank you for the insight.   As far as roommates go, that's a good idea. I've definitely been thinking about that. But these guys are my best friends and the process of getting a new roommate this late in my schooling might be hard. Although, I will keep my eye out for the opportunity. 
    • Yes I have seen the allergist, dermatologist and tonight my general doctor and they all pretty much say I am crazy.  The dermatologist did a scratch test and the results came back saying allergic contact dermatitis.  So she has ordered a blood test for allergens gluten.  Will this be the proper test?  I know there is a celiac panel blood test as well.  My general doctor claims that a result that says allergic contact dermatitis means whatever it is needs to be in contact with my skin so it cannot be gluten, same as my rash comes and goes and she said since I eat gluten all the time it can't be DH and lastly since I don't have any bowel issues it can't be gluten.  I tried to dispute all of these from what I have read on here.  Believe me I hope it is not a gluten allergy, but I have not had an answer in 10 years so signs lead to this I need to explore it.  Why do all of the doctors not have the information that is being spread here, what is right?  I believe all of you guys as you have been through it.   Will the blood test for gluten allergy be sufficient?  Or should I have a full celiac panel or should I highly push for the punch test? Unfortunately money is an issue so I am trying to make sure the proper test is administered instead of just going through all of them. Thank you!
    • My son is 5 and his symptoms are all behavioral and neurological. If he eats a few pretzels he will develop something called a stereotypy where his fingers become sort of stuck in distorted positions for days. If he eats gluten he also experiences auditory and visual hallucinations, insomnia, loss of balance and fine motor, periods of confusion (doesn't know where he is), dialated pupils, chronic post nasal drip, keratosis pilaris covering torso, extreme behavioral issues, constipation and bloating. We've been to 3 neurologists, 2 allergists, an endocrinologist, psychological, psychiatrist, dermatologist,  infectious disease specialist and soon will see a gastroenterologist. He's tested negative for celiac and doesn't have the gene which would indicate gluten as an issue for him. Despite these facts, we entirely removed gluten and dairy from his diet and he is a normal happy playful child again, living the life he should be living.  He's had a few instances of dietary mishaps at school which were difficult to recover from. We implemented the AIP diet which for us included no grains (no corn, rice or quinoa), no dairy, no legumes (especially soy), no eggs and limited nightshades. Basically, we have been eating only vegetables, fruits, meats and nuts. Nothing processed. It works. Now we are at the point of adding things back into his diet and it's going well. We've determined that he's sensitive to a particular baking mix brand called Simple Mills. So there are only two possibilities to this a) Simple Mills brand isn't as gluten free as it needs to be or b)my son is actually sensitive to baking soda.  I also think he might be dealing with intestinal permeability or "leaky gut". I've been reading about a protein called zonulin and I question whether that could be a potential biomarker in our case. Prayers for your daughter. If you think it's a dietary trigger then you are right and I encourage you to never give up. You will find an answer if you keep looking. I promise.  
    • Well.... it can be... the plastic lid on the lovely chicken salad you brought for lunch sticks, you pull too hard and it, and half your salad going flying all over the company computer?  
    • @cyclinglady I heard that there were problems with Armour Thyroid when it came to gluten a few years ago. I thought it was no longer safe? @Megamaniac I had forgot to put that in my original post that I have a lot of issues with anxiety as well. I've never actually been officially diagnosed with a type of depression/anxiety/etc, but I've had problems with that ever since I was pretty young (I think before puberty). I'm sorry to hear about your medical field experience. I've actively sought out doctors (and got lucky having a great primary dr) over the past few years since very few seem to know much about it. The fact that a doctor would laugh at a patient for anything is pretty infuriating. Sorry to hear that. I went to a gastro that barely listened to a word I was saying and only offered a short term "solution" so I never went back to him.
