If you’ve heard of the brand Belli then you know that it’s a brand that began its life as a safe brand for pregnant women. Considering I’m in menopause it sure doesn’t seem like it would be an appropriate brand for me but guess what – it’s very fitting for me and for you. When Belli offered to send a few products the timing was perfect because I was going through my summer breakout time. I said yes and learned a lot about these products. I have two products from Belli, Anti-Blemish Facial Wash and Fresh Start Pre-Treatment Scrub.
Belli wants women to start with them when they are planning pregnancy, are pregnant and to keep with them beyond pregnancy. No matter what age women are, our hormones can go wacky. Even my elderly mother has an occasional breakout.
• FREE OF salicylic acid, glycolic acid, and benzoyl peroxide– common acne fighting ingredients that should be avoided during pregnancy
• Contains lemon peel oil, a natural anti-bacterial and skin brightener
• With green tea extract and cucumber, both are rich in antioxidants
• Helps prepare skin for the application of other Belli products
• Includes the refreshing aromatherapy of peppermint oil
This is a great scrub to use 2 to 3 times a week. I have quite a few scrubs so I interchange but I did use this one exclusively for a few weeks while testing Belli for review. I used it twice a week and found it gentle on my skin. It’s nice to take it in the shower, get the refreshment of the peppermint oil and at the same time work on my face and body. The Anti-Blemish Facial Wash is a great follow up.
You can find these products at many retailers and etailers. It’s carried at the BuyBuy Baby that’s right near my house so I can even use one of the $5 coupons they send me all the time. It’s also available at drugstore.com, Ulta.com, and many maternity sites.
As you can see, this is an ageless company. I’m happy to have what helps me rather than care that it’s a brand created for a woman in her child bearing years. These are products I’ll continue to use and recommend to my loved ones. — Marcia
