Pregnancy Safe Skincare from Bliss

Pregnancy Safe Skincare from Bliss

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 every pregnancy safe skincare product from Bliss as of 5/20/2020. 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.

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.

      Not ok for pregnancy due to the retinoid, and some would avoid it during nursing due to that as well.

    Bliss lemon and sage body butter safe for pregnant woman? I also want to use this for my stretch mark. May I know the whole purpose of this cream? And where part of my body should I use it?

      I’m not sure what you mean by “may I know the whole purpose of this cream?” It’s a body lotion, it’s moisturizing and you can apply it wherever you want. It’s listed above as safe.

    Hi! I was wondering about the Bliss Mint Chip Mania mask, I’m thinking it might not be safe for pregnancy due to the peppermint leaf extract, but I’m not sure? I had 2 bliss masks, the second was the marshmallow but of course I didn’t open it first 😩

      The apples look like stem cells, which I don’t feel comfortable saying is safe. The rest of the ingredients are ok. My thoughts on stem cells are here: skincare ingredients to avoid during pregnancy I’m likely being overly cautious, but it’s up to you.
