Pregnancy Safe Products from Laura Mercier

Pregnancy Safe Products from Laura Mercier
Pregnancy safe beauty products can be super difficult and confusing. I have an entire guide devoted to what products are safe to use while pregnant including information on what ingredients to avoid while pregnant and a huge list of pregnancy safe skincare products. The list has gotten so large that I’ve decided to start listing brands in their own individual posts.

Here you’ll find pregnancy safe products from Laura Mercier as of 8/8/2021. If it is not safe, I’ll tell you why. All of the products meet my pregnancy safe criteria. If they release a new product that is not listed here, please comment below and I will add it. Note I will link to every product directly to avoid confusion. You’ll know exactly which product I mean.

Which makeup do you need to worry about?

There are a lot of products you don’t need to screen, and it really depends upon the formulation. You don’t need to worry about powders such as setting powder, highlighters or eye shadows. Eye liners and brow products that are wax based pencils also don’t need to be screened. Mascaras and mascara-like primers and brow products also don’t need to be screened.

I have purposefully not screened these products, and as I’m usually overwhelmed with request to review products that should be screened, I will not review these products for you. Please refer to my post on pregnancy safe makeup for more explanation.

How to Request a Product Review

I try to review all of the products that I can when I publish a list. Note, I am in the US and I only have access to US products. Please don’t be rude if I skipped your favorite cleanser, when items are out of stock sometimes they aren’t on the brand’s site, or maybe you are in Asia and I am in the US.

I reserve the comments on each post for reviews of product from that brand, this makes it easier for others to find products later. Please only ask about Laura Mercier on this post, I will delete other product questions. You can find other brands here. If your brand is not included, please ask on the brand list post.

      Please refer to the bolded paragraph about which products you need to worry about. Powders don’t need to be screened.

    Hello, I was trying to find the Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer Oil Free without SPF on the list but I didn’t see it. I got this from sephora, it’s in a Black container and there’s no SPF in it., do you think this is safe for pregnancy? Thanks in Advance.

      They don’t make it any more, so I don’t have ingredients to review.

        Thank you for your immediate response Doctor:) Yeah I noticed they changed it @ Sephora and I couldn’t get a list of ingredients anymore. I’m glad I have found your website to get more guidance about pregnancy skincare. I do have another question though about a specific deodorant but the comments section under the deo’s are now closed, can I ask which is the best way to email you? I tried finding your email but I didn’t find the information. I really appreciate you Doctor:) Thank you so much!

          You should ask on the brand page. I had to turn off comments on most of the round ups and people wouldn’t stop asking about unrelated products on those posts, and then they’d comment elsewhere angry with me because they couldn’t find their comment because it was on a random page…

            Oh okay Doctor, I will post a question then under the brand page with all the details. Thank you so much Doctor. Highly appreciate your help for everyone:)

    Why do we not have to worry about setting powder? I think I saw Talc in the LM’s setting powder I use so wanted to get your thoughts. Thanks!
