Pregnancy Safe Skincare from Glo Skin Beauty

Pregnancy Safe Skincare from Glo Skin Beauty

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 Glo Skin Beauty as of 2/29/2020. 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.

Please note, it can take up to an hour to review the ingredient lists of each product. I review with my own list of pregnancy safe criteria. I obtain my ingredient lists from the brands and major retailers (typically Nordstrom and Sephora), and I review the US versions. Please do not ask me to re-review the same products over and over, I do not have the time to do so, and many people have been rude about this. For more brands, please head over to the list of pregnancy safe products.

Not Safe for Pregnancy or Nursing

Note I’m including products with retinoids here, as those are a bit iffy. It depends on how conservative you want to be while nursing (still absolutely contraindicated while pregnant). Refer to my post on ingredients to avoid while nursing for more discussion. Due to lack of information about Bakuchiol (but continual marketing from brands that it is “just like a retinoid”), I’m currently screening that as a retinoid.

      It’s so highly unlikely that anything from a powder would absorb that I wouldn’t worry about it myself. But if it is going to keep you up at night then I wouldn’t use it.

    Hi there!
    Your posts are so helpful. How kind of you to share all of your research.
    Do you know if the vitamin C serums are safe from glo?
    I have used them for years but can’t seem to find out for sure.
    Thank you so much!
