Wear What You Want | Dryel At-Home Cleaner and Product Review

Most women love to shop and buy delicate items.  The problem is that certain clothing pieces are created with intricate fibers.

There’s nothing worse than purchasing a linen blazer and it’s ruined due to inappropriate care.

Let’s not forget the over priced dry-cleaning bill and time constraint when dropping-off your favorite items.

Constant dry-cleaning has several nasty side effects such as damage to the buttons or seams.  Lastly, if you have sensitive skin, remember that chemicals are used at the cleaners.

Fabric Care: Dry-Clean or Hand Wash

Dryel eliminates the time, effort, and freedom for clothing purchases.  Fashionistas can wear skirts or slacks without the terrifying idea of harming the garment.  Visit Dryel.com to learn more and see new product launches!  Don’t forget to travel this summer with your Stain Removal Pen.

If you haven’t heard of Dryel, remember it’s easy to use:

  • Pre-treat stains with Dryel Booster Spray
  • Toss in the dryer for 15 or 30 minutes
  • Place on a hanger to remove wrinkles

Belli Skincare Stretchmark Minimizing Cream – Review

After having kids and experiencing life changes, we all have stretch marks.  This is a sensitive topic (for women) because it’s difficult to find a product that reduces the appearance of uneven skin and imperfections.

FullSizeRender-138

As a blogger, I will admit that I’ve tested a few drugstore products.  The best advice I can share is to create a “stretchmark” regimen and be patient when seeking results.

Review:

I was asked to review the Stretchmark Minimizing Cream from Belli Skincare.  The company’s known for creating products that support pregnancy and early motherhood.  According to the site, ” while expecting their first child, the founders of Belli became very discouraged trying to find safe and effective skincare. This prompted the husband and wife team to marry their expertise, Medical Doctor and Beauty Expert, and develop the trifecta of maternity skincare – ingredient safety, effective solutions with clinically proven ingredients, and luxurious formulations with aromatherapy to provide a spa-like experience.”

After reviewing the product, I am happy to share this is an amazing cream!  The texture is light with visible appearances of hydration.  It’s stated (on the company site) that the minimizing cream has natural ingredients and helps to even out the skin tone.  It also smells nice and can be applied anytime during the day.  I have used the product for a few weeks and confident it will provide wonderful results!

The cream can be purchased online or in store at Nordstrom and Ulta.com  See more information about the product below:

Stretchmark Minimizing Cream from Belli Skincare (www.belliskincare.com), which is specially formulated to decrease the appearance of existing stretchmarks of any age, regardless of the cause? The Cream features darutoside & regisstril, ingredients shown in research studies conducted by Phybiotex Labs, Sederma Group, France, 1997 to visibly reduce the appearance of stretch mark depth by up to 72% and stretch mark length by up to 52%.
