Pregnancy and Nursing Safe Lash Serums

pregnancy safe lash serums

We all want long, amazing lashes. I’m not a lash extension girl (I just don’t have time to go for refills every 3-6 weeks), and I’m horrible with applying false lashes. Instead, I go for a great lash serum and I love to layer my mascaras.

This list of pregnancy safe  lash serums is a much requested addition to my pregnancy safe beauty guide, which includes information on what ingredients to avoid while pregnant and a huge list of pregnancy safe beauty brands. This list is by no means comprehensive, and there are more options in the brand list.

If you have a lash serum you want to ask about, you must include a full ingredient list in your comment below. Don’t forget to check the list of pregnancy safe beauty brands, many more lash serums are included there. As well, you do  not need to worry about mascara style primers/serums. They’re similar to hair conditioner, in that they are moisturizing your lashes and preventing breakage. I do not screen those.

    Thank you so much for all of the information you’ve shared! As a newly pregnant first time mom, I have so many questions and take a lot of care into my beauty routine! I was curious if you had any knowledge on Latisse? I have been using it since I was 17 (am now 31) because I lost all of eye lashes in high school… diagnosed with alopecia that targeted my eyelashes and Latisse is the only thing to have worked. Would hate to lose all my eyelashes again but most importantly want to be safe!

    The ingredients are:
    Active ingredient: bimatoprost
    Inactive ingredients: benzalkonium chloride; sodium chloride;
    sodium phosphate, dibasic; citric acid; and purified water. Sodium
    hydroxide and/or hydrochloric acid may be added to adjust pH. The
    pH during its shelf life ranges from 6.8 – 7.8.

    • 8.13.20
      Christine said:

      Latisse is not safe for pregnancy due to the prostaglandin analogue. Sorry!

      Hi there, this is such an amazing site. I’ve removed so many products thanks to you!

      I’ve been using Lashfood Conditioning Primer with Collagen, it seems to be similar to lash serums in that it has extra ingredients. Is this safe?

      Nano-peptide Complex: Natural peptide blend proven to provide longer, thicker, and stronger-looking lashes.
      Collagen: Essential lash building protein.
      Panthenol: Provitamin conditioner to thicken and strengthen the appearance of lashes and minimize breakage.

        Christine said:

        It’s a mascara, so I wouldn’t worry about it. It has a high proportion of wax (they’re ingredients #3 and 4), it’s meant to stay on the lashes (which can’t absorb anything) and condition them to prevent breakage.

        Thank you for reviewing! And yes I have been using it for almost 3 months now and it works great! I have seen amazing results. I used Latisse for a long time a few years ago and this works equally as well but without the irritation. I highly recommend it but admittedly have not tried any other lash serums outside Latisse.
