Pregnancy Safe Makeup and Skincare from Benefit

Pregnancy Safe Makeup and Skincare from Benefit

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 Benefit as of 2/19/2020. 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.

Please refer to my post on pregnancy safe makeup, where I explain why you don’t need to worry about your mascara, powders, eyeliners, etc.

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 Benefit 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.

      This has a retinoid and a variant of gluconolactone (a poly hydroxyacid). So it isn’t safe during pregnancy and if you’re on the conservative side it’s one to avoid during nursing as well.

      This is a mascara for the brows. The ingredients are fine, but it only touches hair, which is dead protein and can’t absorb anything.

      It forms a film on the skin and isn’t absorbed (most brow products are like that, it’s why I don’t review them)
      More info here:
      Pregnancy Safe Makeup

      But this list is fine for pregnancy and nursing.

    Hi! Thank you for putting these guidelines together.
    They’ve been incredibly helpful and really helped med navigate a sometimes difficult world with pregnancy – safe make up. I read your notes about products for brows in general, but I’d love to hear your perspective on the following product:

    Product: Divaderme Brow Extender II Chocolate Brown

    Ingredients: Cellulose, Panthenol, Kaolinite, Tocopherol, Lecithin, Panax Quinquefolius Extract, Boswellia Serrata, Aloe Barbadensis, Urtica Dioica Extract, Ocimum Basilicum Extract, Rosmarinus Officinalis Extract.

    I was a little bit in doubt given it also claims to help eyebrows (which may indicate that it connects with the brow/skin).

    Thank you loads in advance!
