Pregnancy Safe Setting Sprays and Facial Mists

What makeup setting sprays and facial mists are ok to use while pregnant?

Today’s post on pregnancy safe makeup setting sprays and facial mists is a highly quested addition to my pregnancy skincare and makeup guide.

Note that some of these products are sprays to set makeup, some are more like skincare mists, but I decided to screen all of the misting products for your face at both ULTA and Sephora because I know someone will want to know! Hopefully I have covered most of the products people are wondering about.

How to Request a Product Review

This list is not an exhaustive list of pregnancy safe setting sprays. This is a list of products that should be easily found or ordered online, hopefully they will make your life easier!

I have now purposefully turned off the comments on this post. If your product is not here, please look for the brand in my list of brands that I have reviewed for pregnancy and nursing safety. If the brand is listed, ask about your product on the brand page. If not, please ask on the main brand page. Note, the brand pages are usually the most up to date, the round ups do not get updated routinely. So in the case of a conflict, the brand page should win.


Reminder:  This list hasn’t been updated since publication (that’s on my to-do list). If there’s a conflict regarding safety, defer to the brand lists which are updated more frequently.
