Read this before commenting to ask about your product
If you have questions about pregnancy safety in skincare, please follow these guidelines. I have answered thousands of questions, and checking in the right spot means you are more likely to find your answer immediately.
Ask in the right spot
The entire Pregnancy and Nursing Skin Care Guide has links to the posts, this is a good place to start if you are confused.
If you have a question regarding a specific skincare product, please start on the big list of pregnancy safe skincare where you’ll find brand specific pages. If your brand is not included, feel free to ask on the page itself. For makeup, please start on the pregnancy safe makeup post, where you’ll find information on which products to check and links to product pages.
Note, that if you have multiple products to ask about, you may need to make several comments. Please don’t consolidate your questions into the same comment. I have people asking about skincare on the foundation post, when I’ve answered their question. This is incredibly frustrating, I am duplicating the same work over and over. People do not even bother to look in the right spot, despite links in the posts. Please ask in the right spot so you can refer to the information on those pages.
Please read the page before commenting
This is particularly true for the brand pages listing pregnancy safe skincare products. I have already reviewed the entire product lines for all brands with their own page, and I currently list the date I completed my review and the pregnancy safe products. I will come back and fill in why certain products didn’t make the cut, but all of the safe products are there. If your product is left off then there was a reason.
Please provide information
Please understand that I only have so many hours a day, and this is a service for which I do not get paid. Please save me time by providing an ingredient list is you are asking about product safety. Please try to limit yourself to a few products. I get comments asking about 6 or 7 products frequently. This is a lot of work.
Please be respectful
Please do not ask me to re-review products, clarify why something isn’t included, etc. I have reviewed thousands of products. I don’t remember off hand why a specific product was not included. Having people ask over and over about a product that I’ve already specifically included (or not included) in the safe list means I need to go over the product again. That could take me an hour. I am a person with a life. I have a job and kids. I receive many rude comments each day, people get annoyed that I haven’t checked their favorite products or if it takes me a few hours to write back. Please be mindful that I have many people contacting me each day, I have already reviewed thousands of products for you to pick from, and I have not purposefully ignored your favorite product.
Comments are moderated
I get thousands of spam comments a day, so all comments are moderated. Please keep that in mind, your comment will not appear on the site until I have read and approved it. People have gotten very rude about this toward me in the past, but without the moderation I can not find your comment on the site, it would be lost in the spam. If you are rude to me about this I will just delete your comment.
