Fragrance-free beauty your pregnancy sense of smell will love

Congratulations, you’re pregnant! Suddenly, you can’t stand the smell of…well, anything. Thanks, hormones! When even your shampoo and hand-cream make you heave, these are the beauty products to reach for: scent-free and soothing. Enjoy our favourite fragrance-free beauty picks that won’t upset your new pregnancy sense of smell

Solero Ultra-Sensitive SPF30 and SPF50+ Lotion for adults (£7,

It’s surprisingly tricky to find SPF that doesn’t smell of coconut and cocktails, but we think we’ve found it. Developed for sensitive skin, the Solero Ultra-Sensitive range is totally fragrance-free.
Expand Image

Kalme Undercoat (£9.95,

Think of this as a comfort blanket for your skin. If perfumed products have left you feeling frazzled - or your face red and sensitive - this barrier cream will smooth and soothe. 
Expand Image

Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Fragrance-Free Cream (£18.50,

Yes, we all love the original Eight Hour Cream for everything from dry lips to split ends, but did you know there’s now a perfume-free version too? An all-round lifesaver. 
Expand Image

DHC Revitalizing Moisture Strips: Eyes (£7.95,

Puffy eyes, but not keen on all those oily, scented eye creams? Then try eye strips (they’re a celeb fave: Jennifer Aniston and Nigella Lawson are fans). Pop these soft gel fragrance-free masks on for 20 mins and you’ll look like a new woman.
Expand Image

Ora Naturals Pure Organic Argan Oil (£12.50,

The perfume and floral extracts in many skincare oils can make you feel dizzy. That’s why pure Argan oil is a great option for pregnant women and new mums, for face, hair, stretchmarks, cracked feet… and massaging baby.
Expand Image

REN Citrus Limonum Hand Wash (£16,

Liquid hand wash is an essential in any family home, but most are made with synthetic perfumes and sulfates which are known skin irritants. This REN classic is made from organic Sicilian lemon oil instead. 
Expand Image

Jack Black Intense Therapy Lip Balm SPF25 (£7.25,

Why do so many lip balms taste like bad perfume from the ‘90s? Bubblegum, synthetic strawberry, pina colada. Yuck. Try this one instead: it’s very subtly flavoured with natural mint, which has been known to ease morning sickness.
Expand Image

No Scent No Colour Shampoo (£18,

Originally designed for women undergoing chemotherapy, this shampoo is a well-kept secret in the beauty world. Mild but effective, it won’t upset you, even on the most delicate of days. 
Expand Image

Faith in Nature Fragrance Free Shampoo and Conditioner (£5.50 each,

Hypoallergenic, these fresh formulas contain no perfume, oils or colouring. The good news is they’re concentrated too, so a little goes a long way. 
Expand Image

Green People Hand and Body Lotion (£21,

Packed with good stuff – organic evening primrose oil and olive butter – this fair trade lotion is so pure you can use it on all the family. It sinks in fast too, saving you precious time.
Expand Image

Native Unearthed Deodorant (£6.49,,

Lots of deo brands claim to be fragrance-free but their chemicals often leave behind a slight sickly scent. This one’s different, thanks to its 100 per cent natural ingredients. No sticky residue either.
Expand Image

Inner-Soul Organics Mum and Babe Apricot All-Over Skin Oil (£24.50,

Created with advice from midwives, this rich, unscented oil can be used throughout pregnancy, wherever you need it (including the perineum). Made from apricot kernel oil, it’s wholly organic, and can even be used on newborns. 
Expand Image

Essentials Cleansing Wipes (99p, and Johnson’s Extra Sensitive Wipes (£1.10,

When you can’t face a whole cleansing routine, stay in bed and take the day off with simple, fragrance-free wipes. These two are brilliant and won’t break the bank.
Expand Image

Arbonne Lipgloss and Lipstick (£18 and £20,

When you’re feeling queasy, the last thing you want is a fruit-scented gloop on your lips. Arbonne’s lip colour range is all-natural and unscented… and the colours are great, too.  
Expand Image

Lily Lolo Mineral Foundation SPF15, 18 shades (£13.99,

Your skin, but better. And no harsh chemicals or strong scents either. One sweep of this and you’re ready to face the world.
Expand Image

Lacura Moisturising Face Wash and Smoothing Face Scrub (£1.29 each,

We do love a beauty bargain. And at less than £2 each and with no perfumes or parabens, this duo ticks all the right boxes.
Expand Image

Cussons Carex Pure & Free From Shower Gel (£2.99,

On those mornings when it takes all your energy just to crawl into the shower, reach for this. Gentle and mild, there’s nothing in this gel to disrupt your senses.
Expand Image

Dr. Bronner’s Baby Mild Liquid Soap (£4.99,

When you’re sensitive to scent, you can use this iconic, totally organic soap as a face and body wash, travel wash for clothes, baby shampoo, even to clean the house.
Expand Image

Comvita Skintensive Cream (£8.99,

Certified all-natural, this luscious moisturiser is full of medical-grade Manuka honey, a complete skincare superhero. If you want an easy day cream for both face and body, this is it.
