Last spring, I moved to Baltimore from Durham, North Carolina. Back in Durham, Burt's Bees, the 100% all natural personal care products company, is big business...after all it's headquartered there.
So, not surprisingly, while living in Durham I got hooked on Burt's Bees gluten-free lip gloss and lip shimmer and was relieved upon relocating to Baltimore to find them just about everywhere in Charm City too (CVS, Walgreens, Walmart, Target). Lipstick, lip gloss, shimmers and even chapstick is something gluten-intolerant lips need to worry about. Living Without Magazine reports in the February/March 2009 issue that women "eat" an average of 6 pounds or 96 tubes of lipstick in their lifetime!
Happily, Burt's Bees maintains an updated list of all their gluten-free products, which include lotions, creams, and soaps, with lines for men and babies too: Click Here for a list of products suited for those with gluten intolerances.
My favorites are the gluten-free super shiny lip glosses and lip shimmers. Burt's Bees just launched two new shimmer shades, Caramel and Peony, which I can't wait to see on the shelves of Baltimore area drug stores.
