Pregnancy Safe Concealers

Pregnancy friendly concealers that don't contain chemicals you should be avoiding in pregnancy

Once you’ve altered your skincare routine to feature only pregnancy safe skincare products, it’s only natural that next you’ll start thinking about pregnancy safe makeup. Today is a much anticipated list

Be sure to read my post on pregnancy safe makeup, you’ll see which products should be checked and which (such as powder blush and mascara) are fine to ignore when checking for pregnancy safety. I also have posts on pregnancy safe foundations and pregnancy safe foundation primers.

How to use this list

I will be listing concealers after I have reviewed their ingredient lists. I know people will ask about products not on the list, so much like the list of pregnancy safe foundations there will be a list of pregnancy safe concealers and not pregnancy safe concealers. All of the products will be linked to the exact product to prevent any confusion. If a product is on the not safe list I will list why it is on that list, occasionally this is because I haven’t seen a full ingredient list from a reputable source yet. When I find the list I might be able to move it to the safe list.

You can ask about product safety for concealers not yet on this list. Please know that going through ingredient lists takes a very long time and I get many, many messages asking about product safety. Chances are that I have already checked the product you are asking about. Please only ask about concealers on this post. I need the product’s name and full ingredient list to give you an answer. Given the number of requests I get a day I can not chase down ingredient lists for everyone, I’m sorry. Please limit the number of products you ask about to a max of 2. Please don’t be rude about this, I’m over the rudeness I am getting in these posts.

    Good evening Dr.

    First, I wanted to thank you for your diligence and hard work I think what you are doing is truly wonderful. The amount of contradictory information out in the web is scary.

    I wanted to question about parabens. I currently use a concealer listed above as safe (Maybelline DREAM LUMI® TOUCH HIGHLIGHTING CONCEALER ) that has both METHYLPARABEN and BUTYLPARABEN. Are we all just being paranoid about them? Any incite will be appreciated!

    Have a lovely evening!!

    Thanks
    Christine

      Parabens are not a concern actually. Please read my post on ingredients to avoid during pregnancy. Parabens have been targeted by many “natural” websites and the EWG as things to avoid, but the evidence does not currently support that. They truly are found naturally in fruits and things (are you avoiding blueberries too?), and while they have estrogenic effects in mice when used at very large doses (which you won’t get with topical products), lavender oil is also known to do this, is stronger, and hasn’t been targeted.

        Hello,

        Thanks so much for the explanation! I actually just ate a whole handful of blueberries never thinking twice! I figured that was the case. I truly appreciate the time you took to explain it.

    Hi Dr. Are any of the powder baremineral makeups (mineral concealer and foundation) ok? I don’t see any of the powders reviewed on your list. I have extremely sensitive skin and hoping to avoid an allergic reaction by switching during my pregnancy. I am struggling to find a simple facewash and every day moisturizer that are safe for pregnancy as you have reviewed, and do not contain any fragrance or parabens. Is there a simple facewash/moisturizer combo you might recommend for someone with very sensitive skin? I currently use Earth Science but I noticed that it contains Licorice Root Extract. I hope using it thus far hasn’t affected my pregnancy (first trimester).

    Thanks!

      Powder makeup you don’t need to worry about. Parabens don’t contribute to sensitive skin and aren’t something you need to worry about during pregnancy either. I suggest starting with my list of pregnancy safe products, there are many clean skincare brands on there such as Ren and Tata Harper.

      They’ve been reformulating their concealers and other face products, part of the buy out from L’Oreal as they add more shades and such. This product has traditionally had retinoids in it, but the list was changed on the Sephora site to be similar but WITHOUT the retinoid, which is consistent with what my most recent concealer packaging from them had on it (I bought in person at my local ULTA). However the brand website still has the ingredient list with the retinoid. It was here on the concealer page first, but I reviewed ingredients for the brand list more recently. Given the ingredient list on my own concealer I put it on the safe list on the brand list, but forgot to change it here. Long story short, I think it has changed. Double check your ingredient list to see if you have old or new formulation, but if the retinyl palmitate is NOT listed then you’re fine.
