Pregnancy Safe Skincare and Makeup Products

Pregnancy Safe Skin Care Products

If you are pregnant or trying to conceive, have you thought about your beauty products? Not all skincare and makeup is safe to use for pregnancy. And truly, who wants to spend hours researching which ingredients you should avoid in your skincare if you are pregnant? Is it safe to use your favorite retinol serum or what about benzoyl peroxide to treat your hormone related blemishes?

When I was pregnant with my first child, I had a major anxiety moment over my beauty products. I was a doctor and reading all of the ingredient lists and learning which ones I needed to avoid was very intimidating! I wrote a few posts about the process, readers started asking questions, and over the years pregnancy safe beauty products grew into more and more posts on 15 Minute Beauty. I’ve tried to take the entire process and make it much easier for my readers.

Where to Start

First, I recommend starting with my Pregnancy Skincare eBook. Yes, you need to subscribe to my newsletter to get it, but it is otherwise free! I promise, I don’t email often, and when I do it is with helpful pregnancy beauty updates. The eBook describes my approach to pregnancy skincare, why I think you need a “core” of products that you use throughout your pregnancy.

Please also check out the “hub” of the pregnancy beauty safety posts, my Pregnancy Skincare Guide. This is where you will find links to most of the posts. If you are going to bookmark a page, that’s the one to bookmark!

Other available lists of pregnancy safe products:
Pregnancy safe foundations, concealers, mists and makeup settings sprays, foundation primers
Face sunscreen, body sunscreen
Lotions with SPF
Lash Serums

The Brand Lists

I have reviewed the ingredient lists of thousands of beauty products. Many of these products are listed below on individual brand lists.

Things to Know

If you want to ask about your own products that are not included here, please follow these guidelines. These guidelines are to streamline the process for me, I get 40-50 comments a day asking about products. Ingredient lists vary by country, some products have very similar names, and often I’ve already screened your product (you just need to look in the right spot).

• I review products available in the United States, as that is where I live, and about 90% of my readers. Please be aware that internationally ingredient lists may vary (check your product against the one I have linked), and there are some products available elsewhere that I don’t even know exist (so please don’t get snippy with me, I didn’t skip your cleanser on purpose).

• The brand lists are almost always more up to date than the round up posts. I am not always able to double check every post on the site, and sometimes products are reformulated. When in doubt defer to the brand list.
