Pregnancy Safe Skincare from Pixi Beauty

Pregnancy Safe Skincare from Pixi Beauty

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 Pixi Beauty as of 6/24/2019. 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, brow products, etc. I do not review these products.

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.

      This is ok for nursing but not pregnancy due to the willow bark (a salicylate) and snail secretion.

    Pixi has a new jasmine retinol line, which obviously means none of it can be used if you’re pregnant. But I thought I would mention it 🙂

    I’ve been using the Correction Concentrate + I’m now 10 weeks pregnant. I’m shocked to discover it contains retinoid as it’s make-up rather than skincare. Obviously I don’t intend to use it again. But as it’s Retinyl Palmitate rather than Retinol, does that mean it’s not as strong? It was the bottom of the ingredients list. Worried about the consequences of using this. I’d meticulously checked all my skincare before getting pregnant!

      It’s not as strong, but there’s still a theoretical risk so we recommend avoiding it. I have more info about this kind of situation in my pregnancy beauty FAQ

    Why is glycolic acid not safe for pregnancy? I have seen many posts that say it is safe and a good alternative to salycic Acid? I would love to know because I have been buying products that have glycolic acid instead of salycic acid. Thank you

    Is it bad that I used the wake up mist once at week 7? I’m now at week 10.
    Can a harm be made by one time use? Obviously I won’t use it again.
    Thanks for that important list.

      One time use is unlikely to cause issues, but there’s info here if you’ve used something that isn’t safe:

    Hello,
    I’ve red that glycolic acid less than 10% is safe for pregnancy, i just found out that am pregnancy is it safe to continue using glow tonic from pixi since it contains 5% glyolic acid only?

    • 6.3.20
      15mins said:

      Glycolic acid isn’t universally accepted as safe, and having a certain % that is safe, implies that we 1) know what levels in the body are safe/unsafe for pregnancy (we don’t, we don’t even know that it’s safe) and 2) absorption is fully the same at all times (it isn’t, your skin will absorb more when you’re irritated for example)

    Hi, thank you so much for this lists!
    I am really hoping if you can help me with this. I am 5 weeks pregnant, just found out and I’ve been using pixi vitamin C serum, as well as the Luna Night Sleeping oil, that both contain retinol, until now. I stopped using them, but I am still worried a lot. Should I be worried or is it ok as long as I stopped using them?
    Thank you so much! I greatly appreciate your help!

    THANK YOU for researching and creating this list. I’ve been using the glow tonic while nursing and am trying to get pregnant. I’m happy to have a definitive answer.
