Thank you Pretty Mommies for the skin care system pictured above.

Pretty Mommies offers a skin care system that is not only safe for pregnant or nursing moms/babies, but it is also an effective skin care system!

Gina, the president and founder of Pretty Mommies had looked for a pregnancy safe facial cleansing system that was safe for pregnancy to get rid of the acne from pregnancy. She failed to find one. Eventually she decided this was something that needed to be on the market, so she made it happen! Pretty Mommies is free of all those chemicals found in traditional facial cleansers. Making them safe for mom and baby.

Pretty Mommies skin care line is a three step process. It is recommended that you do the process twice a day to see the best results. Each product can be used separately, but again, for best results use the three step process all together. 

#1 Let's Be Clear (Facial Cleanser)

The facial cleanser comes in a 4 oz bottle. The cleanser is clear and colorless. I use two pumps, get a good lather and wash my face. As with using any facial cleanser, do not push too hard. Gently rub your face with your fingertips, letting the lather work for you. I love how my face feels after using this cleanser. Most of the other chemical-free cleansers I use leave a "squeaky-clean" feel, leaving my skin feeling more like dry plastic, which I'm not too fond of.

Step #2 Truth Be Told (Skin Brightener)

The skin brightener comes in a 2 oz bottle. Shown in the upper right corner of the picture is the product itself. It has a creamy white look and a silky smooth feel. Apply this product right after washing your face. Use a towel to pat dry (do not rub) your face. One squirt of the product is enough to cover my entire face. Truth Be Told contains agents that help brighten your skin, assist in hydration and decrease inflammation. It also has antibacterial properties to help kill acne causing bacteria. It goes on really smooth and doesn't leave my face feeling tight and dry.

Step #3 Protect and Reflect (SPF 30 Sunscreen)

The sunscreen lotion comes in a 2 oz. bottle, it provides protection from the sun's harmful rays, hydration and is also an anti-inflammatory. This lotion is what I would describe as a 'dry lotion', it doesn't really penetrate the skin deep down. If you use too much it will start to roll off between your fingers. In the winter my skin requires a lot of moisture. I don't feel this is the right moisturizer for me during the winter months, being that I'm not exposed to the sun much either, I'd rather hold on to this and use it in the summer. I know this will be a perfect summer lotion for my when I don't require deep moisturizing but do require sunscreen. The size of the bottle is also convenient, it fits perfectly into a small/medium purse or diaper bag!

Buy it: You can purchase the set all together ($119) or each one individually on the Pretty Mommies website.
