Top 3 Pregnancy-Safe Body Lotions

Lather, lather. Slather, slather. Much like your body wash, you essentially bathe yourself in lotion daily. Think of how much of that lotion is absorbed into your skin; in fact, that’s the whole point! We think lotion should not only be non-toxic, but also soothing, firming, and feel dreamy as you apply. A subtle if not non-existent scent is icing on the smooth skin cake. Here are our Top 3 Body Lotions, or in this case lotions, balms & …stones? That’s right, true luxury awaits.


What criteria did we use to select our top three pregnancy-safe picks? Learn about our process here. 


Osea Anti-Aging Body Balm

Why we love it:

Usually when we read “anti-aging” with regards to a body lotion, we roll our eyes in expectation of yet another marketing gimmick. This one, however, really delivers. The balmy lotion goes on clean and refreshing, while sinking deep into the skin. We felt our skins texture visibly looked tighter, clearer, and overall just better. If you’re going to detox your lotion for pregnancy anyway, why not add the bonus of  improved texture and a youthful glow?


Kate McLeod Mama Stone

Why we love it:

This is not your typical lotion; in fact it’s in bar (or “stone”) form. The Mama Stone is tailored exactly to our mom-to-be needs, filled with all the nutrients you need to keep your skin super hydrated and healthy as it is pulled in all sorts of directions. Also unscented, the stone melts on contact while you glide the stone over your skin. It does sit a little tacky on the skin just after application, so we actually loved it most with dry brushing as a truly luxurious end of the day ritual. 


Necessaire The Body Lotion

Why we love it:

This lotion is actually fragrance-free, even without that sometimes odd fragrance-free lotion scent we all know exists. Using all natural oils, this lotion goes on smooth and sinks right in, leaving no sticky residue; perfect for those of us on the fly. We noticed our skin looked smoother and even had a bit of a natural glow; no shimmer needed!
