Top 3 pregnancy-safe Cream Blushes

We love natural cream blush products that give the perfect tint to cheeks, lips, and sometimes even eyelids. These dewey sticks and pots of color have been simplifying our makeup totes for a while now, but have re-entered the beauty scene in a big way for achieving that effortlessly chic flush of French girl fame. That perfectly flushed look that comes after a day at the beach is no longer off limits for ingredient-conscious pregnant women with more and more combo tints coming on the clean beauty market. Our favorites range from glossy pots to balmy sticks, each with a range of color options to choose a tint that suits your skin tone. One thing they all have in common: they are all pregnancy safe! So, consult our Top 3 Cream Blush list so you too can don the rosy glow of a mom-to-be.

Olio E Osso Tinted Balm

Why we love it:

As true suckers for branding, the typeface and packaging alone sold us on this product; it’s just too adorably chic. Turns out we also like the product (phew). Don’t be alarmed by the super bright stick, it goes on as an incredibly subtle tint, making you look like you caught a few rays or ran up a flight of stairs. It’s luxuriously creamy and the package makes it easy to apply to cheeks and lips in seconds for an instant pop of pep (our favorite shade is No. 2 French Melon!). We love it so much, we stock it in The Nurtured 9 Pregnancy Shop!


Ilia Multi-Stick

Why we love it:

Uncap the chunky Ilia Multi-stick, swipe on cheeks, and pat on eyelids and lips for an easy pulled-together look in one easy step. It glides on right from the stick and blends well with your fingertips. Made with clean, nourishing ingredients, including sunflower seed oil and cocoa butter, the formula feels hydrating on the skin with an ever-so-slightly sticky, dewey finish for a healthy blush. The compact size easily allows you to take this little guy with you anywhere for quick touch-ups on-the-go!


RMS Lip2Cheek

Why we love it:

We love RMS’s line of multi-purpose products – little pots of balmy, coconut-oil based color that you can apply to lips, cheeks, and eyelids for a natural, dewy burst of color. Dip your fingertip into the pot, swirl it around a bit to warm up the product, and enjoy a perfectly subtle, non-shimmery finish that melts into a well-moisturized face. We especially love using the RMS Lip2Cheek in the winter because it’s very hydrating. (Added bonus: as with our other favorite cream blush sticks and pots, this product is so compact and chic you can throw it in your clutch for quick touch ups throughout the night.)
