Stretchmarks. One of those pesky side pregnancy side effects most everyone glosses over while emphasizing the glossy, thick hair and strong fingernails. From what I’ve read of the research, stretchmarks are hereditary - and there’s not a heck of a lot you can do to prevent them initially. But now you can help minimize them once they’ve appeared. And with spring upon us and summer just around the corner….well, as my toddler, would say - buh-bye stretchmarks!
And hello Belli!
Belli Motherhood’s Stretchmark Minimizing Cream from Maternitique was formulated by Dr. Jason Rubin - originally for his own wife and baby. All the products in the Belli collection are made specifically to keep moms and babies safe, and the ingredients are scanned through the LACT-MED database for harmful chemicals. No artificial dyes or parabens here!
So now for what IS in it. Well, ingredients shown in independent clinical trials to be effective on minimizing stretchmarks including darutoside (a plant extract), registril, and avocado oil (no wonder this California girl liked it so much!).
I was well into my 8th month of pregnancy before my pesky belli-marks showed up, so I’ve been trying out the cream for the past month. First of all, it smells scrumptious - good enough to eat. And it goes on easily with no greasy film left on your fingertips. Oh, and did I mention its the #1 OB/GYN recommended product for stretchmarks? That alone is a good enough reason to try it! But even better, my stretchmarks are definitely less noticeable than before using this cream - I’m sold.
The label recommends twice daily application for the first 4-6 weeks, and then once daily until desired results are achieved.
You can find Stretchmark Minimizing Cream (retail price $52) and whole Belli collection, as well as loads of other natural products for expectant and nursing moms over at Maternitique. Maternitique offers a 100% satisfaction guarantee, so there’s no risk! They stand behind and test every product they sell. And you are in luck - Maternitique is offering a free 4 oz body firming serum with each Belli product through April 30th!
