Preventing stretch marks is at the top of my list as a new momma-to-be. I recently lost about 30 lbs pre-baby so I would love to keep my body in good shape and treat it right. I was concerned about the possibility of acquiring stretch marks on my breasts and stomach, so I reached out to Belli Skincare about this product and they gladly sent me this product to test and review. All opinions are my own.
The Belli Skincare duo is very luxurious and fragrant. The ingredients are non toxic and allergy tested. This is very important to me. I threw out tons of my own lotions, cosmetics and other beauty products trying to avoid chemicals while pregnant. I have also struggled with allergies and sensitive skin throughout my life and try to use products that will not irritate my skin or body.
I began this duo immediately using it once a day. The oil is a nice bedtime routine, it has a relaxing and calming scent as well as experience while rubbing it on the belly/ breast area. It is easy to use and doesn't stain clothing or towels either.
The oil is meant to help prevent stretchmarks and improve elasticity of the stomach area. It is light weight and has an easy spray applicator that I just hold up directly to the areas I want to use it on and then I rub them in further. I'm almost 4 months pregnant now and don't have a lot to "show" yet but I will continue to use this product and let you know how it goes. So far, so good!
The All Day Moisture Lotion has a rich lemon zest scent and goes on smooth and non greasy. I found it to be a great lotion for my arms and hands in particular. I am constantly in search of something for my dry and cracking hands and this is a new contender!
The scent is quite beautiful, it's very earthy and natural. While I love the scent now (in the second trimester), I will say it may be a bit strong to the sensitive nose of a woman in her first trimester. I know that many things I loved prior to pregnancy were hard for me to be around or smell. These products are both scented, just keep in mind that you may have to wait until some of your morning sickness subsides before you are exposed to such strong scents.
Overall, I am really enjoying the Belli Skincare duo and will continue to use them throughout pregnancy. The quantity is more than enough to last all 9 months and I look forward to keeping my skin stretch mark free and pampered!
