Top 3 pregnancy-safe Tinted Moisturizers

For us, weeding out unnecessary chemicals found in some of our favorite products gave us greater peace-of-mind during those nine months - plus we had fun experimenting with many natural beauty brands in the market. But the trial and error is expensive, skin-traumatizing, and time consuming; by the time we found ones we loved, we were no longer pregnant!  

To figure out which tinted moisturizers would be worth buying (and worthy of replacing our favorite version from Laura Mercier), we chatted with several beauty experts at natural beauty boutiques and scoured the world of beauty blogger reviews to narrow down the most popular products. We then tried the best-selling formulas ourselves before settling on our Top 3 picks.

Read on if you're interested in making a swap, too.  And lucky for you, it won't take your entire pregnancy to find the right tinted moisturizer to enhance your pregnancy glow!


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


Beautycounter Dew Skin Moisturizing Coverage SPF 20

Why we love it:

This tinted moisturizer adds a nice dewy, light glow. As put it: “your ultimate light, pretty, skin-perfecting daily SPF 20 is Beautycounter’s Dew Skin. It is a miraculous formula that makes practically every person look and feel better. It gives just enough coverage; it leaves you faintly glowy; the SPF is...clean and non-toxic.” It was also named a 2015 Best of Beauty Award Winner from Allure.


Ilia Sheer Vivid Tinted Moisturizer SPF 20

Why we love it:

The beauty experts we spoke with at Follain and Credo both recommended this semi-matte formula from the natural beauty brand Ilia. It deposits a nice amount of coverage while still feeling light, and it comes in six shades.


W3ll People Bio Tint Multi-Action Moisturizer SPF 30

Why we love it:

We like that W3LL People was co-founded by a makeup artist who wanted to create products that perform well but are also good for people. This makeup/skincare hybrid, named best of beauty 2017 by Allure, diminishes imperfections, brightens, hydrates and improves skin quality.

Remember, every pregnancy is different, and we are not medical professionals, so if you’re concerned about any product we mention, please talk to your doctor to make sure you’re 100% comfortable with what you’re using on your body. We did our best to sort out what we feel are the best pregnancy-friendly options out there by conducting extensive research, including: talking with our own doctors, scouring the internet, sifting through product reviews, and chatting with other moms-to-be. We hope our research helps you find products that make you feel great!
