Of all of the things that you think about when you are pregnant, I bet skin care is not at the top of the list. But it should be. As you already know, everything changes when you are pregnant and your skin is no exception. Your skin needs special care as well. Skin products can contain ingredients that are irritating to sensitive pregnant skin and some of them are even dangerous to use while you are pregnant.
Tales Of A Southern Mom was lucky enough to work with the great people at Belli Skin Care.
Their Elasticity Belly Oil is specifically made to help prevent stretch marks, with no harmful chemicals to hurt you or your precious baby. This is a great oil to smooth on your skin morning and night. All of the ingredients are screened and tested to make sure that they are safe for use during pregnancy. It is allergy tested, cruelty free, contains no dyes, no phthalates and no paraben preservatives. The oil feels soft in your hands and warms quickly as you rub in circular motions onto your tummy and hips and the scent of lavender is very relaxing as you use it.
After use, itching in this area due to dry, tight skin stopped immediately, and I have not felt it again since starting to use the oil daily. The skin feels soft and supple and and almost creamy in texture.
It is hard to feel beautiful when you are pregnant, everything feels just unbalanced, and this seemed to bring a little bit of luxury and calmness to my day. The fact is that it just felt good to use.
We received the Stretch Mark Minimizing Cream as well but we are not quite ready to use that one yet, we are going to have to update this review to include how it worked.
There are no new stretch marks, we are hoping the oil keeps them away even late into pregnancy.
