Pregnancy Safe Skincare from Korres

Pregnancy Safe Skincare from Korres

Pregnancy safe skincare 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 every pregnancy safe skincare product from Korres as of 11/13/2020. 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.

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 Korres 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.

    Thank you, this is great! I replaced Mychelle Remarkable Retinal Night Cream (which I love and happily use while not expecting) with Korres Vitamin C Sleeping Facial while pregnant – thanks for the validation this was the smart choice!
    Btw, it doesn’t look like you include Dr. Hauschkas….?

      That brand is on my to do list but I haven’t gotten to it yet. You can see I’ve already included a very large number of brands, but I’m just a 1 person team doing this in my spare time, sorry.

      I once saw on Dr. Hauschkas website that all of their products are pregnant safe. Maybe check it out if it’s still stated on their website.

    Hi there. I don’t think I saw — unless I totally missed it — the Korres Wild Rose Peeling Mask AHA 10% ? Have you any idea if that would be allowed?

    Hi again! Just wondering if we need to shelve certain body washes as well during pregnancy? I’ve got the Korres Lavender Blossom and the Jasmine shower gels, but I’m not sure if I can use them(?). I’ve read conflicting things about shower gels and I’m very confused. Please help!

      So there were 2 separate products for the eyes, one was a cream and one is a serum, which if you read the names carefully they’re different. It looks like the links no longer work because sephora doesn’t carry it any more, but the serum is fine, the cream is only ok for nursing due to the salicylic acid. This one is fine.
