Ever since having children, my skin has undergone some subtle and some not so subtle changes. Prior to being pregnant, I had oily skin on my face and struggled to manage shine and occasional breakouts. Post-pregnancy, my skin went from being oily to combination skin with some very dry areas. Taking care of dry skin is something that is new to me because I’ve never had to use moisturizer or worry about flaking. As a result, I have had to reevaluate my skin care routine to address some of these changes.
Lately, I was pleasantly surprised to learn that there is a skin care line that is specifically formulated to care for your skin during pregnancy and beyond. I knew that this would be a great option for my needs since the changes to my skin had arisen from pregnancy and childbirth. Belli ® delivers trusted skin care solutions that pamper and protect without known harmful chemicals so you can expect beautiful skin and enjoy peace of mind during any stage of your life: pregnancy, motherhood and beyond.
Whether you are pregnant, nursing, or neither one, you can have peace of mind from knowing that Belli ® products are allergy tested and cruelty-free since they are never tested on animals. Additionally, they do not contain artificial dyes or fragrances, Phthalates, or Paraben Preservatives. They are OB/GYN & Dermatologist Recommended and safe to use while nursing because they are LACTMED Screened to avoid harmful ingredients if passed through breast milk.
I had the opportunity to review the Belli ® Fresh Start Pre-Treatment Scrub and Belli ® Anti-Blemish Facial Wash to take care of my combination skin. The Pre-Treatment Scrub exfoliates to help prepare skin for the application of other skin care products. It can be used on the face and the body and contains green tea extract and ginseng, which are both rich in antioxidants, and includes the refreshing aromatherapy of peppermint oil. As I washed my face with it, I could feel the scrubbing beads cleansing away my old skin cells.
Belli ® Anti-Blemish Facial Wash features lactic acid to cleanse and gently exfoliate acne prone skin. It contains lemon peel oil, a natural anti-bacterial and skin brightener, as well as green tea extract and cucumber, both are rich in antioxidants. I love that it is gentle enough to be used as a daily cleanser but can also be left on the face for 5 minutes as an intensive facial mask. I’m going to use it as a facial mask at least once a week for a deep cleansing.
I am very pleased with how well both of these products cleansed and cared for my skin and will certainly be adding them to my daily skin care routine. Belli ® delivers trusted skin care solutions that pamper and protect without known harmful chemicals so you can expect beautiful skin and enjoy peace of mind during any stage of your life: pregnancy, motherhood and beyond. Add them to your skin care routine and you can pamper your skin without worry as well!
