Belli Beauty is a line marketed toward women in the bloom of pregnancy. They have many products and I was able to try their cleanser, the Anti-Blemish Facial Wash. This cleanser is a pure face wash that leaves skin clear and refined, without over-drying or any irritation. It contains Lactic Acid (found naturally in the body but also produced by milk) that gently and effectively cleanses and exfoliates acne prone skin. Lemon peel oil is a natural anti-bacterial and skin brightener, which helps to fight off melasma that occurs during pregnancy. Green tea extract and cucumber are rich in antioxidants, always good to have to fight off free-radicals. This cleanser is FREE of salicylic acid, glycolic acid, and benzoyl peroxide, common acne fighting ingredients that can result in over-drying and irritation and should also be avoided during pregnancy.
Anti-Blemish Facial Wash is a favorite of those struggling with blemishes, sensitive skin, or breakouts from any cause that includes hormonal changes, such as: puberty, pregnancy, birth control, menopause and menstruation. It is gentle and effective, but does not strip the skin of its natural protective barrier, leaving the natural lipids in the skin to help keep skin moisturized and hydrated. You can also use cleanser as an intensive facial mask by applying a thin layer all over your face and leaving it on for 5 minutes..
It is OB/GYN and Dermatologist recommended. And the cleanser is allergy tested, paraben-free, gluten-free, cruelty-free, with no articfical dyes or fragrances. Also, it has been medically researched to avoid ingredients that may be harmful during pregnancy or nursing.
How To Use: Gently apply cleanser onto a lightly damp face or body. Then massage for 30-60 seconds. Rinse and pat dry. Use morning and night. It may also be left on for 5 minutes as an intensive mask.
Belli Beauty also suggests using their other products to help with your skin issues but most importantly is the Pure Radiance Facial Sunscreen with UVA/UVB protection. It helps avoid melasma. Make sure to wear at least a SPF 30 daily during your pregnancy. And it should be a mineral sunscreen if possible. Mineral sunscreens are safer.
I like this cleanser and have found it to be extremely reliable and gentle on the skin yet it does help fight off acne. I don't think it would fight off extreme acne, but moderate to light acne would be good for this product. You do have to make sure you are using other products like a scrub and a sulphur acne treatment to help with individual blemishes too. When you are pregnant hormones go crazy and you never know how your skin is going to be. It could be calm and glowing or crazy with blemishes. And it could change easily. Be prepared though and make sure to use safe ingredients.
