Belli Pregnancy Products Review

When I found out I was pregnant, I immediately started doing research on beauty products and ingredients that are safe to use during pregnancy. I turned to my fellow beauty bloggers at the Beauty Blogger Coalition for advice, as well as baby sites such as Baby Center. 

There are several lines out there that are safe to use during pregnancy, and some that are dedicated to mothers and moms-to-be. The first line I tested out as a newly pregnant woman is Belli, appropriately named to pamper us ladies with growing bellies :) I was fortunate to try Belli Skincare's Fresh Start Treatment Scrub, Stretchmark Minimizing Cream and Sheer Treatment Lip Balm. 



This gentle exfoliate can be used on face or body, but I have just tested it out on my body. It's considered a micro scrub, which isn't very abrasive. You can't even see the exfoliate beads in the cream, they are so small. It features antioxidant-rich ginseng and green tea, as well as aromatherapy benefits of peppermint oil, which gently tingles when you massage it on, and leaves a light, refreshing smell after it's rinsed off.  Other benefits and features include:
 - Free of teratogens (ingredients linked to birth defects) and OB/GYN recommended
 - LactMed screened to avoid ingredients that may be harmful if passed through in a mother's breast milk. It's safe to use while breastfeeding.
 - Allergy tested. Free of parabens, BPA, phthalates and artificial dyes

I've been using this 2-3 times a week on my belly, and about once a week on my legs. I use it on my legs to prep for shaving (remember, it's gentle!) and on my belly to prime my skin for the Stretchmark Minimizing Cream. A 6.5 oz tube retails for $24 at Buy Buy Baby or Ulta.

Belli Stretchmark Minimizing Cream

This cream is suppose to be used to treat existing stretch marks, but since I started to use this when I was newly pregnant, I've been using it on my belly to hopefully help prevent marks. This cream contains ingredients scientifically proven to visibly reduce the appearance of stretchmark depth and length. Key ingredients include ginseng (similar to the treatment scrub) to even out skin tone and avocado oil to soften and moisturize. 

I've been using this every day after showering. The directions advise to apply twice daily for four weeks, and then use once daily until desired results are achieved. A 6.5 oz tube retails for $49. 


Sheer Comfort Lip Balm
If you follow my blog, you know I'm obsessed with lip balm. I keep one in every area of my life, in every purse, in every pocket. This balm is a hypoallergenic lanolin balm that relives dry lips. It contains the highest medial grade, ultra-purified lanolin oil, and nothing else. It goes on super smooth and is really shiny. I feel like it brings out the color in my lips along with glossiness. I love the slanted applicator and how long it lasts. Definitely one of the top balms I've ever tested out. 

This balm has been highly tested to ensure safety of use during pregnancy and breastfeeding. A 0.3 oz tube retails for $12. 

Overall I was extremely impressed with this line. It will also hold a special place in my heart since it was the first pregnancy line I tried out :) It's nice having the peace of mind knowing that the products I'm putting on my skin are safe for my baby. The Belli slogan is "Expect Beautiful Skin. Enjoy Peace of Mind, " which is so true. Just because I'm pregnant, doesn't mean my skincare routine has to suffer. If anything, I should be pampering myself more, which I will do with additional Belli products!
