Twiniversity Awards Belli Elasticity Belly Oil and Belli Acne Cleansing Facial Wash with the "Twiniversity Approved" Stamp of Approval

After months of intense product testing within the multiple parenting community, Twiniversity™ is proud to announce that Belli Elasticity Belly Oil and Belli Acne Cleansing Facial Wash have been officially awarded the "Twiniversity Approved" stamp of approval.

New York, New York (PRWEB) October 12, 2011

Parents of twins, and higher order multiple birth children, from around the globe have united within Twiniversity; the world's fastest growing online network exclusively for their community. Twiniversity was formed to help families connect so that experiences can be shared, support can be given, and all multiple birth families have a place to call their online home.

One of the numerous topics discussed within Twiniversity is personal care during pregnancy. Moms to be and new moms are always looking for something to help with stretch marks and the itching that is associated with a growing belly. Considering how much a mother of multiples grows during her pregnancy, which is expectedly larger than that of a singleton expectant mother, this growth may be irritating, or even downright painful. Within their group moms also discuss pregnancy skin issues, including the all too common including Chloasma, a hormone related acne issue.

With these topics being so prevalent in the Twiniversity Forums, the founder Natalie Diaz was thrilled when Belli, a skincare line developed especially with moms in mind, reached out seeking an official "Twiniversity Approval".

Moms from around the United States were chosen to take part in the Twiniversity Approval process for Belli Elasticity Belly Oil and Belli Acne Cleansing Facial Wash. Twiniversity Testers were required to record their thoughts on the product packaging, usability, etc. The independent testers were given Belli Elasticity Belly Oil and Belli Acne Cleansing Facial Wash to be used for a series of months during different stages of their pregnancy. The reviewers were also asked to take photos and record videos to help illustrate why they liked or disliked certain features. Since 100% of the Twiniversity Testers would "highly recommend Belli Elasticity Belly Oil to another mother of multiples," and the majority of the reviewers would "highly recommend Belli Acne Cleansing Facial Wash", Twiniversity proudly announces that both products have officially been awarded the "Twiniversity Approved" stamp.

Some of the features the approval team liked best about Belli Elasticity Belly Oil include: the scent, the beautiful packaging and the way it made them feel. "I put it on at night after the shower and the scent and texture is very pampering." Becky Wolfe, a Twiniversity Tester noted "I am a big fan of the elegance and simplicity Belli has put into their packaging-it really makes the consumer feel like they are using a high-end spa product in the comfort of their own home."

The Belli Acne Cleansing Facial Wash was praised by reviewers for its nice scent, cleaning ability and ease of use. "It felt like it tightened my skin and felt refreshing" another Twiniversity Tester commented.

Natalie Diaz, founder of Twiniversity, explained why Twiniversity started its own approval process by saying, "Parents of multiples trust other parents of multiples more so than anyone else. Since our community is such a tightly knit one, we depend on each other for support and guidance. Even though twins occur one in every 30 deliveries, it's still rare, and the fact that our group shares this common bond makes us a real close community." She goes on to say, "This trust is not taken lightly, so when we decided to start our own review process we took several factors into consideration, most being specific to parents of multiples and unique to our community. We want to make sure that time, safety and finances are considered since they are what Twiniversity families are most concerned with."

"Twiniversity Approved" recipients are recognized on the specific standards set forth by the Twiniversity team, and tested by independent families of multiples who are not paid for conducting reviews.

Belli Tries Petit Organics

We don’t think that we have to talk to you about why many of the moms at Belli swear by organic food for their little ones. But just in case you need a refresher, we'll quote Petit Organics: Babies are much more vulnerable to toxins in their diets than adults.  This is why going organic is so important to your baby’s growth and development.  Organic farming keeps synthetic pesticides and fertilizers out of the food our little ones eat! Organic farming also reduces toxic farming runoff and pollutants that contaminate our water, soil and air.   And lastly…organically raised produce simply tastes better!
When, Monica, one of the moms here at Belli was given the green light to start her 6 month old son on solids, she knew she wanted to go organic but was not sure if she wanted to purchase organic shelf stable food or purchase organic produce and prepare it on her own.  When it came right down to it, Monica knew that as a working mom who barely had time to prepare food for herself, making fresh baby food for her son probably wasn’t realistic -- there just didn’t seem to be enough time in the day. She then learned about Petit Organics. Petit Organics is an organic baby food home delivery service in the New York Metro area (soon to go national, we hope!)  Petit Organics’ mission is to help bring fresh, wholesome baby food to the many busy families in the New York City area.
When you shop on the site, you select a Petit Pack based on your child’s age, which includes 9 jars of fresh, organic baby food.  You can build your own Petit Pack or you can have Petit Organics select the varieties for you.  A Petit Pack is valued at $48.00. 
Monica’s Petit Pack included varietals from the Stage 2 blends (8 months and up): Apple, Sweet Potato & Nutmeg, Broccoli, Carrot & Quinoa, Zucchini & Lentil, Pear, Oat & Cinnamon and Apple & Carrot. Petit Organics also offers a couple seasonal blends, which were also included.  The food was hand delivered (you select a window that works for your schedule) in a cute, branded refrigerated bag. All of the individual packs were date stamped so that mommies can keep track of the food’s freshness.
Our review: The stage 2 blends were absolutely delicious and the freshness was incredibly apparent. In fact, Monica didn’t just feed the blends to her son – she ate them herself and shared a few varieties with other moms in the area.  All of the moms agreed that the Petit Organics food is yummy enough for adults to eat too!
If you are in the NY area, we encourage you to give Petit Organics a try – we don’t think you’ll be disappointed in the quality, freshness and most of all taste of this baby food brand.  Follow them on Facebook for news and insider deals at
