You may have noticed I have a ton of posts added to my pregnancy safe beauty series lately. I am overwhelmed with emails and comments daily from readers asking me to review their favorite products or suggest a pregnancy safe product.
I was asked recently on the Pregnancy Safe Sunscreen and BB Cream post for my favorite pregnancy safe moisturizers with sunscreen. I was like…. there’s like 15 in this list. But really, those are sunscreens that you would layer over other products. A one step sunscreen in your morning moisturizer is much more my speed.
I searched around and it is actually very difficult to find a pregnancy safe moisturizer with sunscreen. This is primarily because purely mineral based sunscreens are hard to find in a lotion, they tend to give the skin a white cast. (You can read about why I think you need to avoid chemical sunscreens during pregnancy.) I did manage to find some, note the product I used while pregnant has been reformulated. I have tried the Burt’s Bees and the Aveeno here, both are good and lightweight.
