Belli Skincare Trio for Hydrated, Glowing & Protected Skin

 Press Sample (Affiliate Links)

I have tested out numerous products from Belli Skincare, and have always been very impressed by their high quality, efficacy and lovely textures. They are formulated to be safe for pregnant and breast-feeding woman, but they can be used and enjoyed by anyone. I selected three of my favorite products that are absolutely perfect for the warm weather because they are lightweight and hydrating. My idea was to choose three products that would be all that I needed to nourish, hydrate and protect my skin, and to eliminate all other extraneous products. Their Eye Brightening Cream, Healthy Glow Facial Hydrator and the Pure Radiance Facial Sunscreen achieved just what I had hoped, and notwithstanding the need to reapply the sunscreen throughout the day, my skin remained perfectly hydrated all day long. I actually felt no need to wear any makeup because the sunscreen is lightly pigmented to even out skin tone, but without imparting any tangible pigmentation.

All three of these products are:
  • Free of teratogens (ingredients linked to birth defects or miscarriage in published medical studies)
  • OB/GYN recommended
  • LactMed screened to avoid ingredients that may be harmful if passed through in a mother’s breast milk
  • All ingredients are safety screened for use during pregnancy and breastfeeding
  • Allergy tested; free of artificial dyes or fragrances, phthalates and paraben preservatives
  • BPA free packaging
  • Cruelty-Free.  
  • Easy-to-use airless pump
Belli Eye Brightening Cream is a very lightweight and fast absorbing emollient eye cream that immediately hydrates the skin while softening fine lines. I definitely have noticed that it lightens dark circles when I get them, and it effectively reduces puffiness on the rare occasions that I get inadequate sleep. It provides all of the moisture that I need to last all day, and has never given me any problems with Milia. If, however, you have very dry skin under your eyes you might want to use this as a hydrating serum underneath a heavier eye cream, but for me this eye cream alone provides all the moisture that I need.

According to Belli Skincare,

Belli Eye Brightening Cream illuminates tired eyes and minimizes the appearance of fine lines. Vitamin K is scientifically reported to help reduce the appearance of dark circles, and Vitamin B3 increases circulation to help eye area look restored. Hydrates delicate skin around eyes to reduce the appearance of puffiness and cools on contact.

  • Vitamin K enriched eye cream that revives and illuminates tired eyes, and minimizes the appearance of fine lines.  Vitamin K is scientifically reported to help reduce the appearance of dark circles. 
  • Vitamin B3 also helps the area around the eye to look restored.
  • Hydrates delicate skin around the eyes to reduce the appearance of puffiness.  Cools and soothes on contact.
Directions: Gently pat underneath eye area as needed to keep eyes looking refreshed and well rested.

Ingredients: Deionized Water, Olive Oil PEG-7 Esters, Hydroxyethyl Acrylate/Sodium Acryloyldimethyl Taurate Copolymer (and) Squalane (and) Polysorbate 60, Glycerine, Sodium PCA, PPG-2 Myristyl Ether Propionate, Cetearyl Alcohol, Cetyl Esters, Glyceryl Stearate (and) PEG-100 Stearate, Phospholipids (and) Phytonadione, Ethoxydiglycol, Phenoxyethanol, Arnica Montana Flower Extract, Sodium Hyaluronate, Tocopherol (Vitamin E), Palmitoyl Tripeptide-5, Hydrolyzed Rice Bran Protein (and) Oxido Reductases (and) Glycerine Soja (and) Deionized Water (and) Glycerine, Acanthopanax Senticosus (Ginseng) Root Extract, Camellia Sinensis (Green Tea) Leaf Extract, Dimethicone, Chondrus Crispus (Carrageenan) (and) Glucose, Panthenol, Saccharomyces Cerevisiae Extract, Squalane, Ascorbyl Palmitate, Hydrolyzed Soy Protein, Iodopropynyl Butylcarbamate (and) Glycereth-2 Cocoate.

Belli Healthy Glow Facial Hydrator is a lightweight ultra hydrating moisturizer, filled with botanical humectants, that softens and nourishes the skin. My skin is immediately hydrated and illuminated. While this is suitable for all skin types, those among you with particularly dry skin may want to use this more as a hydrating serum under a richer cream. On my normal to combination skin, however, Healthy Glow Facial Hydrator provides all of the moisture and hydration that I need. It has a very light citrus scent that smells wonderful, but it does fade soon upon application, and therefore should not bother people who prefer unscented facial products.

According to Belli Skincare,

It provides the antioxidant boost of vitamin C and grapeseed oil for radiant, healthy looking skin.  The formula is rich with soothing chamomile which helps neutralize skin irritants. 

  • A light daily moisturizer that is rich in botanical humectants that refine and soften skin texture.
  • Moisturizes and illuminates the skin.
  • Provides the antioxidant boost of vitamin C and grapeseed oil for radiant, healthy looking skin.
  • Soothing chamomile helps neutralize skin irritants.
Directions: Apply daily to clean, dry skin morning and night.

Ingredients: Deionized Water, Vitis Vinifera (Grape) Seed Oil, C12-15 Alkyl Benzoate, Sodium PCA, Cetearyl Olivate (and) Sorbitan Olivate, Leuconostoc/Radish Root Ferment Filtrate, Chamomilla Recutita (Matricaria) Flower Extract, Xanthan Gum, Caprylyl Glycol (and) Ethylhexylglycerin, Acanthopanax Senticosus (Eleutherol) Root Extract, Potassium Sorbate, Citrus Nobilis (Mandarin Orange) Peel Oil, Cetearyl Alcohol, Ascorbyl Palmitate.

$32.00 for 1.5 oz. from Belli, SkinStore, Dermstore, ULTA and Amazon.

Belli Pure Radiance Facial Sunscreen SPF 25 is a broad spectrum mineral sunscreen that is lightly tinted to even out skin tone. While it has light skin-toned pigmentation it neither imparts color, nor does it leave behind a white cast. However, if your skin is darker, rather than light to medium in tone, then this may not have the same effect of disappearing altogether.  This is a very soothing and hydrating sunscreen that feels absolutely wonderful on the skin.

According to Belli Skincare,

Pure Radiance Facial Sunscreen is a broad spectrum, physical barrier, mineral SPF 25 with zinc oxide and titanium dioxide. Oil-free and lightly tinted to blend with most skin types. May be worn alone for sheer coverage or under makeup.

  • SPF 25
  • Lightly tinted to blend in with all skin types
  • Oil-Free
  • May be worn alone or under makeup
Directions: Apply liberally 15 minutes before sun exposure. Reapply at least every 2 hours. Children under 6 months, ask a doctor.
This is not water resistant sunscreen.
