Pregnancy Safe Products from Smashbox

Pregnancy Safe Products from Smashbox

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 Smashbox as of 11/20/2021. 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.

Don’t See Your Product? Read This Before You Ask About It…

Please read the Pregnancy Beauty Guide intro first, where you will learn which products you actually need to worry about (spoiler alert, you don’t need to worry about all makeup or hair products). I will not review products that fall into the “don’t worry about it” categories. If you want to ask about a specific product, I require that you follow these guidelines for asking about pregnancy/nursing safety. You can also learn more about how to use these pregnancy safety lists. I will delete questions that don’t follow the guidelines or are rude.

    Good morning! I want to first of all thank you for your countless hours and time you have put into this website. As a woman going through IVF and am trying to put my best foot forward to increase my chances of a successful embryo transfer, the information you have on your page has been immeasurably helpful and has put my anxious and hormone crazy mind at easy! I also want to let you know that I am so sorry for human kind for being rude in any exchanges they’ve had with you. That’s so disheartening, as you are doing this as a community service and out of the goodness of your heart to help us ladies out.

    I have a question regarding the Becca Soft Light Blurring pink powder. I am concerned about a few of the ingredients that are present in this product and would be forever indebted to you if you could take a look and tell me what you think! I also use Lumify eye drops that whiten your eyes…which after reading your info on whitening products I think I’ll stop using them from now on.

    The ingredients in the Becca blurring powder (from the boxycharm website that I purchased it from) are: Talc, Synthetic Fluorphlogopite, Mica, Boron Nitride, Silica, Dimethicone/Vinyl Dimethicone Crosspolymer, Caprylyl Glycol, Hydrogenated Lecithin, Hexylene Glycol, Dimethiconol, Dimethicone, Isodecyl Neopentanoate, Sodium Potassium Aluminum Silicate, Phenoxyethanol, Tin Oxide, CI 77491/77492/77499 (Iron Oxides), CI 77891 (Titanium Dioxide).

    If you’re curious about the Lumify eye drops, the ingredients are: Active ingredient Brimonidine tartrate (0.025%) … redness reliever

    Inactive ingredients Benzalkonium chloride, boric acid, calcium chloride dihydrate, glycerin, potassium chloride, sodium borate decahydrate, sodium chloride, water for injection. Hydrochloric acid and/or sodium hydroxide may be used to adjust pH.
    The website for the drops is: https://www.lumifydrops.com/discover

    Thank you again for your time!!! I appreciate you so much!!! 🙂

      I don’t see anything of concern in the powder, and that isn’t even taking into account that it’s a powder and sits on the surface of the skin and doesn’t get absorbed.
      I don’t comment on meds like the lumify, I would discuss directly with your doctor. I will say they’re purely cosmetic and not at all to improve health or function of your eyes, so I would just stop using them myself.

      This is fine for pregnancy and nursing, though I think it’s a powder which you don’t need to worry about anyways.

      Avoid in pregnancy and nursing due to the retinoid. It also has salicylate to avoid in pregnancy
