BEAUTE DE MAMAN FACIAL SCRUB FOR PREGNANCY – Right around my son’s first birthday, I read an interview with Dr. Michele Brown right here on BITB. It was nothing short of mind-blowing. I’ve always bemoaned the fact that most “pregnancy beauty” lines are all about the body. Hey, up here – we still care about looking and feeling good from the neck up, and there’s a real dearth of products for the face. A practicing obstetrician since 1982, Dr. Brown recognized the need for a safe skincare line for expectant mamas that treats the face as well as the rest of the body, and I was lucky enough to get my mitts on a bottle of her Facial Scrub for Pregnancy shortly after I learned I was expecting around Thanksgiving.
I’ve been using this scrub one to two times daily since then and truly love it. The great texture is easy to work over moist skin, the exfoliating beads gently and effectively clean my face with no irritation whatsoever, and there’s no heavy fragrance to offend my hyper-sensitive nose. Like the rest of the Beauté de Maman product line, the Facial Scrub is safe for mom and fetus, botanical based, paraben free and patient tested.
FINAL VERDICT – GGI (GOTTA GET IT) – The Facial Scrub is $22.99 and worth every penny. Pregnant ladies have enough on their minds without having to scour research, read labels or trust salespeople who may or may not care more about their commission than the very specific safety concerns of expectant moms. I salute Dr. Brown for putting her expertise and reputation behind this product line and giving us one less thing to worry about… with a 19 month old son and twin girls due this Summer I’ve got a pretty full plate!
