Pregnancy Safe Skincare from Mediheal

Pregnancy Safe Skincare from Mediheal

Pregnancy safe beauty products 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 Mediheal as of 3/11/2020. 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 Mediheal 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.

Please note, I have reviewed all of the Mediheal products that I found with ingredient lists that I trusted. I did look at YesStyle, but they had grouped many masks together and then had the same ingredient list for all of them…. I didn’t think this was right. If your favorite isn’t here, please provide an ingredient list in the comments.

      I felt like they had a huge number of sheet masks, for sure a bunch would be safe?! 🙁
      Neither of these are safe either. The first has willow bark and the second has licorice root. Both are fine for nursing.

        Isabelle Liu said:

        Thank you so much for responding. 🙂 Yea, they have so many but seems like most have either willow bark or licorice root. I’m planning to change up to using the Innisfree Real Squeeze ones (saw your comment on the Innisfree post). Thanks again for your help!
