I knew there was some reason that I did not like Almay - and what does the gluten content have to do with its transportation.

BANNED FOR LIFE for me! AND Alison Mitchel should be fired for putting out that letter.

Can you post your response? I asked specifically about lipstick.

BTW - I am also "free" of nuts, etc... (not milk - but try to avoid) It keeps me skinny for a 38-year old mom with 2 teenagers. I don't stress it - except when I want to go to a function and freak out about mixed nuts out at the tables. I actually skip things if I know nuts will be served.

Lol. I am still having weight problems. I am thin, but I am about 5 lbs over what I want to be which amazes me because I can eat so little. I think it is summer break. LOL...lets hope!

I actually don't have the response from Almay anymore. Unfortunately I deleted it. If you want, what is the product you want info on and I'll write them and see what happens? Maybe if more than one person writes...we may get different answers?

I called Almay recently and asked about the One Coat Mascara. The woman looked it up and told me that all of the One Coat Mascaras were gluten-free.

They probably don't want to issue a blanket statement or give a list because suppliers can change as well as ingredients/formulations.

I don't rely on lists, but call about individual products (foods or personal care). That seems to be the way to get the most accurate information.

Thanks! That is what I will do asap! I don't want to get rid of all my expensive make-up.

Thanks Kassandra! I am going to call them.

BTW - 5 "extra" pounds is sexy! Be glad you have it, especially with our diet situation. My Celiac made me so sick and skinny that I got down to 100 lbs! Now that my body uses the food I eat, I have gained about 15 lbs and am thrilled! My husband loves it, and so do I. Perfect is in your own head. People will see you how you see yourself.

    • I didn't read that far.  Yikes... A hefty dose of perspective in that one.  For anyone reading this is the post:
    • Hi! I'm new to the Celiac world. I have been gluten free for around seven months, but still seem to get glutened on a regular basis. I have been sick since January '16 and think that is when it triggered, but I didn't realize until October what it was. By that time I was pregnant with my little boy who is due in June. I also have an almost 4 year old daughter. I am really torn and wondering if I need to really be tested? I have very strong suspicions that I am a true celiac because my aunt has been diagnosed. Part of me says it doesn't matter, just live gluten free and assume you are, but the other part says I need to get tested so I know if my kids are at risk. So far my daughter is fine. She was grain free until after her first birthday, I plan on doing the same with my son. But I also don't want them to suffer the way I have. What would you do?  The reason I don't want to get tested is I don't want to start eating it again and feel terrible while I have little kids, last year was so hard and I just want to get strong again. I also plan to bf for a few years and don't necessarily think it's a good idea to eat gluten while bf right?  Thank you! 
    • Welcome too! Sorry to hear you're suffering now. If you can nail the diet you should improve. You should also think about vitamin supplements. There's a good chance that you're suffering from one or more deficiencies as a result of the affects of celiac on your intestine's capacity to draw nutrients from your food. A good multi vitamin is a must, just make sure its gluten free and see if your doctor can refer you to a dietician as Lochella's has.
    • Oh I had heard his name and read some stuff about him but hadn't come across this video!  Thanks!!
    • Hi Stacie, Sorry you're not feeling good. I found I was a bit up and down in my first months gluten free. I'd had blood sugar issues before, they've largely improved since my diet change but it hasn't made me immune to them. The single best thing I did was change my breakfasts, increasing protein and fat and reducing carbs. That kept my blood sugar in check and stopped the cycle of food cravings and sugar crashes. Omelette's for the win! Maybe if you share a typical day's food for you some of the forum members can suggest some changes you could make?
