Belli Skin Care Review

Like most mothers, when I was expecting I was very concerned with everything that went into and on my body.  Belli Skin Care products were specifically developed with the mothers and mothers-to-be in mind.  Whether you are expecting or nursing, Belli's luxurious and effective products are safe for you.  The doctors and experts behind Belli, Jason and Annette Rubin, have also developed products that are safe for your newborn.

Since I am not currently pregnant, I thought I would let my friend who is 10 months along review the products for me.  She was very excited to hear that the products were free of Teratogens (which have been linked to birth defects and miscarriages), Paraben Preservatives, BPA, Phthalates, and Artificial dyes.  According to Dr. Rubin, "During pregnancy, over 1/3 of women experience acne and 70% experience chloasma, dark brown spots".  Belli's Complexion Protection Duo (shown above) helps protect the skin from hormonal breakouts and from the harmful UVA sunrays that can cause the chloasma.  My reviewer said,  "I'm used to using a foaming facial cleanser and now I don't think I'll ever go back. The gel-like cleanser left me face feeling to smooth and clean and the scent was invigorating. I don't really have sensitive skin, it's more reactive, in that every time I switch cleansers I break out, this is the first time in 15 years that I have not broken out from a new product!!   The first thing I noticed with the Anti-Chloasma Facial Sunscreen was the scent. I've tried numerous tinted moisturizers and when I'm pregnant, I just cannot get over the smell, it will make me sick all day and Belli's had virtually no fake tan smell. The other super bonus for me was that it really evened out my skin tone, I am clueless when it comes to makeup and this took care of it all for me!"

Belli Eye Brightening Cream is not just for those who are pregnant or postpartum.  This Vitamin K enriched eye cream can help "revive and illuminate tired eyes".   This cream targets and hydrates the delicate skin around the eyes to reduce the appearance of puffiness.  My reviewer said, "The under eye cream was amazing! Within five days I noticed a difference. That will come in handy when the baby comes and bags are really bad!"  Now I can't use pregnancy as an excuse for tired looking eyes, but I could definitely use something like this to reduce the puffiness.
The Healthy Glow Facial Hydrator is "a daily/nightly moisturizer rich in botanical humectants that help refine and soften texture.  It includes an antioxidant boost of Vitamin C and grape seed for radiant, healthy looking skin".    I love that it is suitable for all skin types.  I have very sensitive skin and it is sometimes hard to find a moisturizer that doesn't turn me all blotchy. My reviewer doesn't have sensitive skin, but is very sensitive to smells during her pregnancies.  She said, "I used the daily moisturizer before bed every night. One thing I can't stand is when I can feel the product on my face, this cream was so non-greasy and smooth it absorbed right away and I could feel how much smoother was skin was".
