I have bad spots on my chin and recently have been using a little of this - is it safe as am worrying now!

Of course it's ok to use! A tiny amount of spot cream dabbed on your chin is hardly going to magically cross the placenta and harm your baby.

I wouldn't start swigging from the bottle or anything though.

Chin spots are usually hormonal anyway, so you may be fighting a bit of a losing battle.

I'm sure I read that you shouldn't use it but I did once or twice when I had a really bad break out. DS arrived unharmed!

P.s it didn't make a blind bit of difference to my spots though

Thanks all youve put my mind at rest - will stop using it though!

I've been using a Lumie Clearlight to deal with the hormonal spots - it took a few weeks to make a difference but it seems to have cleared everything right up. I love it!
