pMy 12 year old daughter came downstairs the other day with blue eyes. I did not panick, I simply ask her which make-up she had used. It was some very old stuff of mine from the 80's. We had used it for Halloween one year and she still had it in her room. I told her that if she felt she needed make-up we should go out and buy new stuff rather than 20 year old make-up. (I know I keep everything!)br /
Tonight we went out and she picked out Cover Girl Eye Shadow. This has always been safe for me. She also asked about lip gloss. I told her I would have to research that first. I know that Lip Smacker have an Almond one so we do not buy Bonne Bell. Any ideas on Lip Gloss?br /
The next thing she said was "what about deoderant"?br /
My little girl is growing up too fast and I can not keep up. Any help on research you have allready done on make-up, lip gloss and deoderant would be much /

If anyone can help it would be great. Even if you can re-raise old threads.

Hi Karen,
I have a 12 year old myself (will be in a couple of weeks) non-allergic but enough in itself! [img][/img]
My daughter uses N.Y.C. Roll-on Lip gloss which is glitter Kiwi flavor. I just went downstairs to check for ingredients on it and there were none. (It must have been on the package that has since been thrown out) and I also buy her *Bath & Bodyworks* lip gloss which also did not state the ingredients. You may be able to do a search on the web for these 2 companies for ingredient listings.
As far as deodorant...she uses *TEEN Spirit* Stick by Mennen in Berry Blossom and the ingredients are:
[b]Active Ingredient[/b]:Alumminum Zirconium Tetrachlorohydrex Glycine Complex
[b]Other[/b] Cyclomethicone, Stearyl Alcohol, PPG-14 Butyl Ether, Phenyltrimethicone, Hydrogenated Castor Oil, Peg-8 Ddistearate, Fragrance.
I do know from experience that Estee Lauder pencil lipliners (not the refillable kind but the regular pencil) have peanut oil in them. (Not that a 12 year old needs lip liner, this is just for future reference) LOL!
I'm not sure of other brands but Estee Lauder also owns MAC; Prescriptives; Donna Karan, Clinique, Bobbi Brown Essentials and I can't remember the rest. Could there be cross-contamination? Maybe. I don't know how that end of the business works.
I wear Prescriptives foundation & Powder and use their skin products and I have not noticed peanut oil in any of their products. (I also only wear oil-free products except for my lipliners which are Lancome). I have not seen peanut oil listed in their ingredients for their lipliners and my son is touch sensitive and has never reacted to my make-up.
Some of Clarins products contain peanut oil and once I dig up my book from them, I will post it for you.
Don't know if I helped...just the mention of cleaning or cosmetics and I'm there!!! [img][/img]
Stay Safe!

You should probably go for Almay products which are made specialy for allergic people, all hypoallergenic products.

I think you might get more help on the "adults living with..." board as well, where all kinds of "coming of age" topics are discussed. becca

My 13 year old is allergic to peanuts and almonds. She has found that most of the makeup in the drug store has the ingrediants listed. She just stays away from the few that don't and still has plenty to choose from.
