Belli Skincare and Giveaway!

We were recently given the opportunity to try some great skin care and maternal products, by one of my new favorite companies, Belli Skincare.  We tried 3 products, and they were a total win!  Let me give you the lowdown on some of these awesome products and how you can get a great deal on them...

This box of goods retails at $49.99 but the actual value of the products inside is $58.  $8 savings!  It contains two fab products, Elasticity Belly Oil and All Day Moisture Body Lotion.

Elasticity Belly Oil

Maintains the look of smooth, healthy skin with scientifically researched ingredients that help prepare skin for stretching during pregnancy.


A luxurious blend of pure plant extracts to nourish and moisturize the skin


The aromatherapy benefit of lavender soothes and calms the senses

Contains Vitamin E and grapeseed oil, both are rich in antioxidants


Used in fine spas as a pre-natal massage oil

Justina's Review: I love the spray applicator for this oil!  It allows me not to waste product by spilling it into my hand, and getting way too much out at once.  Application is key when it comes to oils, as since my addiction to body and facial oils has begun, I've made a mess of my bathroom, stained a few things (including one of my bathroom drawers), and usually dump out so much it ends up moisturizing my hands more than anything.  My skin feels ultra moisturized when wearing this, and I have been using it all over my body!  Does it seriously get better than a spray bottle applicator?  I should mention, the bottle is glass too, which makes it look more chic on my bathroom counter.  I've gotten a ton of use out of this and it's quickly become a favorite!

Jessica's Review: I love the applicator as well. This is the least greasy non oily oil that I've ever used. It soaks into the skin quickly and does not leave a mess. It also had a pleasant scent to it and was a joy to apply. My skin definitely looked and felt better. I keep this right by my sink and apply after a shower to slightly wet skin. The bottle is glass and looks nice on my counter as well. I've been using this several times per week and love it!

All Day Moisture Body Lotion
Deeply moisturizes, soothes and comforts dry skin.


Features lemon oil which is known for its uplifting qualities


Chamomile soothes and refreshes


Shea butter moisturizes and smoothes

Justina's Review: I can't say enough great stuff about this lotion, so I will start with the smell, which is amazing.  This bottle of wonder contains lemon oil.  I didn't realize how much I loved the lemon scent until I started wearing this.  The first time I tried this, I was laying out for a sun tan in the 100+ degree weather we've been graced with lately.  Despite wearing sunscreen, my belly got a little burnt.  Have you ever had a sun burn and been SO itchy from it?  I couldn't stop clawing at myself, so I decided to give this stuff a little try.  It was soooo relieving to use.  The itch stopped instantly, and I could feel the lotion sink into my skin and hydrate me.  The shea butter formula feels so good on my skin.  I am in love.


Sold separately from the Baby Bump Duo is the Fresh Start Pre-Treatment Scrub, for $19.

Fresh Start Pre-Treatment Scrub
An invigorating scrub that sweeps away old skin cells to reveal healthy skin. 

Features green tea extract and ginseng, both are rich in antioxidants

Helps prepare skin for the application of other Belli products

Includes the refreshing aromatherapy of peppermint oil

Justina's Review: This scrub is the bomb!  I couldn't find any information on the packaging or on their website indicating if this could be used on the face, or just the body.  Since it's made with natural ingredients, I assumed I would be able to use it anywhere I wanted.  Peppermint is my favorite essential oil to apply to my body because it's so invigorating, it's like you can feel it seeping into your pores and cleaning everything out and waking you up.  This scrub performs like I dream of all my scrubs performing.  The granules of exfoliator are super tiny- smaller than a granule of sugar.  You know when you use a scrub and after rubbing it around for a few seconds, it seems to have done its thing and is on the way down the drain?  This stuff will keep scrubbing and scrubbing as long as you let it.  I applied this on my face and my body, and it worked magically on both.  It feels just as good as it smells, and I love that it has antioxidants and is good for me!  My skin definitely looked more refreshed and less dull after its use as well.

Jessica's Review: I love using this scrub in the shower! The light peppermint smell is so refreshing and relaxing. It also has a smaller grain consistency than some other scrubs that I have used. This is a great scrub to use for us non preggos before applying some self tanner. My skin was super duper soft after using this. This product isn't just for pregnant women, but anyone concerned about the types of chemicals that are in other products that you are putting on your skin.

To sum it up, this is the #1 line I've found so far in terms of maternal friendly skincare.  I found the following information on their website AFTER deciding this was my all time favorite.  To me, this just proves that it really does perform the best of anything I've tried:
Belli Pregnancy has set a higher standard for prenatal safety, as the only skin care line in the world that is teratology screened. We search through over 16 million medical research articles in over 5000 international journals, and use this information to exclude ingredients with even remote links to birth defects or other problems with pregnancy. Belli Motherhood is LactMed screened to avoid ingredients linked to harmful effects during breastfeeding. Belli Baby is screened for xenoestrogens—chemicals which can act like hormones that interfere with normal development of the reproductive system. So no matter which Belli products you use, you can have peace of mind erring on the side of caution.
Next time one of my friends gets knocked up, I am SO having these 3 products expedited to their house. It's truly all you need to get through the stretching, scratching, and skin woes you may be experiencing!

These products were sent to us by the company for review. We were not otherwise paid or compensated for this review. All opinions are honest and they are our own.
