Gluten-Free Girls Need Red Apple Lipstick!

June 10th, 2013 by Christie Bessinger


gluten free lipstickFor us Gluten-Free girls, it's a little more difficult to shop for makeup, because we have to make sure all of our cosmetics are GF as well! Thankfully, a lot of companies are developing some amazing GF make-up products. This week I got to try this fabulous lipstick from Red Apple Lipstick - a company who's products are all GF, Soy-Free, Lead-Free, Enriched with VITAMIN E (woo-hoo!) and Paraben-Free. It is definitely the highest quality GF Lipstick I have found. It's safe and 100% non-toxic. One of the reasons I love being gluten-free, is it has made me more aware of toxins in popular brands of makeup.Since going GF, I've been on the look-out for safe, quality GF brands of make-up, and I have to say that Red Apple is one of my new favorites!

If you're looking for a lip color that feels great and lasts all day long.....Red Apple Lipstick is it!

Do Celiacs Need Gluten Free Skin Care?

November 12th, 2010 by Marissa Carter

There are a lot of skin care products in the world to choose from.  The ways each person selects which products to buy are as individual as the people buying them.  Some people look for a certain scent, while others look for the way they want to feel.

People who have severe allergies or sensitivities to certain ingredients are often prone to buy products without those ingredients.  This raises the question; Do Celiacs need gluten free skin care products?

A hidden source of gluten is often found in shampoos, conditioners and lotions. Who would have known?

desert_essenceMany beauty products contain some source of wheat. Those with food allergies should check with the company to make sure their product is gluten-free. One of my favorite gluten-free beauty products is by Desert Essence. Their fragrance free collection is great for those who have sensitive skin. The lotion is delightfully moisturizing, the shampoo and body wash lather extremely well and the conditioner detangles the hair nicely. Desert Essence also makes several other shampoos and conditioners with an assortment of wonderful fragrances. (more…)
