Pamper Your Skin Without Harmful Chemicals! @BelliSkincare #Giveaway #Ad

*This post was written by me on behalf of Belli ®. I received complimentary product samples to facilitate this review. All opinions are 100% mine. 


    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!

  1. I use acne preventative facial cleansers for breakouts.

  2. Yesenia Torres says

    Cuando tenemos niños tenemos que simplificar todo pues ya no tenemos el mismo tiempo como para un régimen largó de belleza.

  3. Lesley Stevens says

    Looking pretty momma! Sounds like good stuff, I’m happy that it doesn’t have any harsh chemicals in it, we don’t need that stuff on our precious skin. I’ll definitely check out Belli further.

  4. It’s crazy, but I have more acne break-outs since I’ve gotten older. I’m glad for oily skin as it keeps the wrinkles at bay, but sheesh! I’ve definitely had to change my routine to compensate. Love this line, natural ingredients are the best!

  5. Your skin looks great! So glad to hear there is a product out there that actually works:)

  6. Rebecca Bryant says

    You look amazing. My routine has changed in I am more aware of what is happening with my skin especially after having skin cancer.

  7. Jeanine @ says

    What this looks great! I’d never heard of this brand until this post! I will be looking in to it now!

  8. I (obviously) didn’t see a skin change, but have always had issues with combination skin. The areas around my nose get very dry – I have to put lotion on them every day.

  9. I need to give this a try because I am pregnant and my skin is breaking out. It’s driving me crazy!

  10. My skin has gotten drier and more sensitive over the years. I would love to try the pre-wash cleanser.

  11. I have dry skin naturally and it is hard to make the moisture stay on my skin no matter whatever cream I try. I really have to try this out! Great review 🙂

  12. I love peppermint oil! I’m sure it smells nice because of that.

  13. I have never had a continuous skin care routine. I will start and then stop very soon after.

  14. I noticed I have dark patches on my skin / uneven skin tone now where I did not before having kids.

  15. I have to admit that I don’t good care of my skin as I should. I used to more when I was younger because I think I cared more. I should start getting back into it though because I do want to look good forever 🙂

  16. I still suffer from the worst breakouts ever and I am always up for trying something new to help – I will have to look into these. x

  17. Very happy to hear that these products are not tested on animals, that is important to me 🙂

  18. I have actually been more adamant about taking care of my skin since I have had children. I think I am more aware of it because I am also looking after their skin.

  19. My skin has gotten dryer as I’ve gotten older-it used to be so oily.

  20. Courtney Bella says

    omg it’s changed SO much i have taken better care of, making sure i wash it and moisturize every day ! and lots of botox! lol

  21. Amber Nelson says

    Wow, your skin looks really amazing. I’d be willing to try this.

  22. amanda ripsam says

    Your skin looks very clear and refreshed. My skin has changed so much since I had Bella I don’t have that glow skin I used to have sink looks a little dull but your skin looks almost perfect.

  23. michelle boor says

    i have been paying more attention to my skin care and wearing more sunscreen. Thanks for the chance to win

  24. While my children are older. My skin has been changing since hitting 40. My skin is more sensitive to the climate and other elements. I use makeup sparingly as my skin seems to be more sensitive.

  25. shelleycasey says

    I have found that my skin has become a little more “blotchy” accented by a few “age spots”. As if I needed any reminders that I am getting older!

  26. As I get older my skin is drier and it seems like I scar more easily and have sun damage more often. I really have to stick to a routine and not miss any days or spa appointments to keep things looking “ok”

  27. Yes, it seems to change often. I have cyclical issues of acne and dryness each month. They never tell you how many things can change with pregnancy.

  28. Meagan Bailiff says

    my skin is awful but i don’t know that age or having had a kid has anything to do with it, i think it would be bad anyway.

  29. beth shepherd says

    Yes, It is getting better but it def got worse after children.

  30. Vickie Hamilton says

    Age spots and a little acne outbreak from time to time…

  31. My skin has become dryer and less supple since I’ve gotten older. I’ve also started to notice fine lines too.

  32. It goes through spurts. I have times where my skin is clear to getting acne breakouts like a teenager. I think it’s age, hormones, and stress.

  33. My skin went from oily in my younger years to now combination. I never seem to have enough time in my day to pamper my skin as I should.

  34. Been looking for new facial cleanser!

  35. Dorothy Ransom says

    I have become more consistent with my skin care. Keep it simple so I can find time to follow it.

  36. Stephanie Turgeon says

    I really love trying new skincare, so I hope I can win this giveaway! With age, my skin has gone from completely dry, to oily, and now combination/oily. I started a job at Sephora and that really turned me oily (from wearing so much makeup all the time).

  37. My skin has always been slightly oily but it has gotten worse after having kids.

  38. Tena Nading says

    My skin is so oily and breaks out, I need to try this!

  39. Kristina Gruno says

    My skin has become dryer with age and that is scary to me…

  40. My skin has lost elasticity over time, and that concerns me. However, I no longer have acne (finally!), so I kind of enjoy my older skin now. 🙂

  41. Phil Randall says

    since I have gotten older my skin looks older

  42. Cassandra Eastman says

    Your skin looks great! Mine gets dry, especially in the winter and i’m 15 weeks pregnant right now which is really making me breakout!

  43. As I have gotten older I use a more intensive moisturizer, tons more eye cream and I have started using a toner

  50. Chickie Brewer says

    I’ve always use moisturizer, but as I get older I tend to use more of it.

  51. I have larger pores so have to use a acne scrub!
