Pregnancy Safe Skincare from Milk Makeup

Pregnancy Safe Skincare from Milk Makeup

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 pregnancy safe products from Milk Makeup as of 3/21/2021. 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 Milk Makeup 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.

    Hi Doctor,

    I’m curious about your thoughts on the Milk Makeup Kush Mascara, since you’ve previously mention that mascara doesn’t penetrate the skin. Their Kush Mascara contains hemp-derived cannabis oil.

    Water, Paraffin, Glyceryl Stearate, Synthetic Beeswax, Stearic Acid, Acacia Senegal Gum, Butylene Glycol, Palmitic Acid, Polybutene, Oryza Sativa (Rice) Bran Wax, VP/Eicosene Copolymer, Ozokerite, Aminomethyl Propanol, Hydrogenated Vegetable Oil, Phenoxyethanol, Stearyl Stearate, Hydroxyethylcellulose, Nylon-6, Papaver Somniferum Seed Oil, Cannabis Sativa Seed Oil*, Glycerin, Helianthus Annuus (Sunflower) Seed Oil, Dipteryx Odorata Seed Extract, Theobroma Grandiflorum Seed Butter, Cera Carnauba/Copernica Cerifera (Carnuaba) Wax, Silica, Tropolone, Aframomum Melegueta Seed Extract, Helichrysum Italicum Extract, Iron Oxide (Ci 77499).

      Mascara is only applied to your lashes, which are dead protein. I don’t feel comfortable saying that hemp/cannabis is safe when it can be absorbed, but your lashes can’t absorb anything so it shouldn’t matter there.

    I’m confused about the Hydro Grip Primer analysis. Milk doesn’t state that there are any sunscreen properties on their site or the bottle, but this list states there’s a chemical sunscreen in it. Could you confirm, please? Here is the ingredient list, is one of these technically a sunscreen?

    -Hemp-Derived Cannabis Seed Extract: Hydrates and smooths the look of skin, while providing antioxidant benefits.
    -Blue Agave Extract: Forms an invisible layer to grip makeup, smooth the look of texture, and seal in moisture.
    -Prickly Pear Cactus Extract and Aloe Water: Hydrates, soothes, and calms skin.

    Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Water, Water, Glycerin, PEG-150 Distearate, Alcohol Denat., Polyglyceryl-10 Eicosanedioate/Tetradecanedioate, Diglycerin, PVP, Benzyl Alcohol, Sorbitol, Pullulan, Inositol, Betaine, Carbomer, Maltose, Xylitol, Sodium Hydroxide, Sodium Benzoate, Potassium Sorbate, Sodium Phytate, Benzophenone-4, Dehydroacetic Acid, Phenoxyethanol, Agave Tequilana Stem Extract, Sodium Hyaluronate, Niacinamide, Propylene Glycol, Panthenol, Vegetable Amino Acids, Cannabis Sativa (Hemp) Seed Extract, Opuntia Ficus-Indica Flower Extract, Prunus Avium Flower Extract, Citric Acid, Benzoic Acid, Yellow 5 (Ci 19140), Blue 1 (Ci 42090), Red 33 (Ci 17200).

      Benzophenone-4 is also known as Sulisobenzone and is a chemical sunscreen. Frequently brands will include sunscreens even without an SPF value to help improve product photostability and shelf life.

        Thanks for that info. Unfortunately I have used it a few times already. I hope I haven’t done damage.

        Does this alternative primer look okay?
