anything as long as it's gentle. My doctor said no salicylic acid or retnoids or benzoyl peroxide. Which really sucks for me b/c I have bad skin and break out a lot. So I use Vivier products gentle cleanser and toner. I got them from my dermatologist and he said they were safe to use during pregnancy. PCA cleansers are safe also as long as they don't have any of the above ingredients in them.

I use cetaphil...it's gentle and skin during pregnancy apparently becomes more sensitive.  I too, am suffering from pregnancy acne but I'm in my 10th week and it looks like it's SLOWLY clearing up.

Cetaphil is really good and gentle.

I use Mary Kay's TimeWise, but not everyone can use that while pregnant (my SIL couldn't).

So my recommendation is Cetaphhil.

It depends on your doctor. Some doctors say it's ok. Some say no. My doc said absolutely not but that he would give me a script for clindamyacin cream b/c it's apparently safe for pregnant moms to use for acne. So ask your doctor is your best bet.
