I won a trio of Belli products in a Hybrid Mom contest recently. I was hoping they'd send stuff for nursing mamas (which I am) but I got some products for pregnant ladies (which I am not). I figured I could use the Pampered Pregnancy Body Wash and All Day Moisture Body Lotion regardless of my barren womb. I mean, who doesn't need to be clean and soft, right? They're both great products. The body wash has a light lavender scent that is very pleasant and the lotion is incredibly creamy and smells luscious, like lemon tea. But you know what REALLY knocked my socks off?
Belli's Stretchmark Minimizing Cream is absolutely amazing! I balked initially at the $52 price tag, even though I didn't have to pay for it. (I still like to think about whether or not the retail price is "worth it" for beauty items. Especially if I'm going to recommend them to anyone.) Honestly, this one is. I didn't get any stretchmarks with Roo. I only gained 12 lbs with that pregnancy. But Jasper was another story… I got a couple of lightning bolt stripes underneath my giant belly that precluded me from bikini-wearing this summer. Oh, wait, I haven't worn a bikini for ten years! Okay, so my stretchmarks weren't that drastic, but they bothered me.
When I read the testimonials online about Belli's Stretchmark Minimizing Cream, I knew that I had to try it. And poof! Within a week of putting it on after showering in the morning and before bed at night, you can barely see the evil scars. In fact, the stretchmarks I got on my hips as a teenager when I, umm, "blossomed" have even faded to obscurity. That was twenty years ago, ladies. Nice work, Belli! And thanks again, Hybrid Mom! C-Section mamas (and the accident-prone, like my husband!) should take note of the Surgical Scar Reducer, too. I wonder if it works on overscratched mosquito bites?
Coincidentally, today is the last day of Belli's really excellent VIP deal: enter code VIPPARTY for 30% off your ENTIRE purchase! A good time to stock up on Stretchmark Minimizing Cream, if you ask me…I really want to try the Eye Brightening Cream and Body Firming Serum, too.
Belli is also having great contest to celebrate their website redesign, but hurry- it's going on through Sunday. Check it out, y'all!
