Hello Makeup Geeks, today I have a review for you of my new favorite face powder. I am so excited to share this with you as I love this face powder so much! As many of you know I have very sensitive skin and am prone to break outs quite easily. I have recently found out I am allergic to talc and it is so very hard to find foundations and powders that are talc free. Unfortunately, talc is used as fillers in a lot of cosmetics. It can clog pores and cause breakouts. For me it was essential I find products that did not include talc unfortunately, finding talc fee products is quite hard. I found this at a trade show recently and couldn’t wait to try it and see if worked as good as I had hoped. I was not disappointed.

Last week, I started hearing a lot of buzz about gluten-free this and gluten-free that. So I just wanted to write a post about what is “gluten-free”. From a marketing standpoint, gluten-free is used to target a specific segment (those with celiac disease). Without going into a lot of details, celiac disease is a condition that damages the lining of the small intestine and prevents it from absorbing parts of food. The damage is due to a reaction to eating gluten, a protein that is found in wheat, barley, rye, and maybe oats, etc. There are a lot of substitutes and gluten-free grains out there (see here for a list).
That being said, were you also under the assumption that gluten-free products only make sense if these products are INGESTED? As in: they have to be consumed through your digestive tract in order for it to be an issue! Why, then, do I see so many cosmetics and personal care products being branded as “gluten-free”? Does that really matter? Unless I’m eating my makeup and lotions (okay, so maybe some lipsticks/lipbalms make their way to your stomach…the amount should be insignificant anyway), how is normal absorption through the skin suppose to give you celiac disease symptoms? Are people just too cautious? Maybe I’m just not getting it because I’m not a sufferer. But I’m here to help, so here are three skin products that are gluten-free:
- AminoGenesis Simply One 10 in 1 Skin Perfecting Treatment (although I’m not sure if their Vitamin E and Glucosamine come from plants/algae source, at least they’re GF!)
- KaplanMD Clinical Skin Therapy
- Pangea Organics Egyptian Calendula & Blood Orange Facial Cleanser

It’s with bittersweet feelings that I announce the farewell of my beloved blog, Makeup Junkie. It’s hard to believe I started MJ 6 years ago. I can still remember sitting at my computer and publishing my first post
Somewhat old news, but Pizza Hut launched a pizza perfume early last month for a marketing campaign. They released 110 bottles to commemorate the 100,000 Facebook fans on their Canadian page. The perfume is said to smell like “freshly baked, hand-tossed dough”. I wonder if it actually smells like acne-covered teenagers/couch-potatoes in their PJs watching TGIF on TV. Wait…that was just me…
