I’ve been using Andalou Naturals Vitamin C Beauty Balm for 2+ weeks. Here are my thoughts on it. 🙂

I bought this beauty balm thinking that I could make it my main makeup foundation. Well, it didn’t work out that way. This beauty balm has no coverage. It works better as a base. And that’s what I’m using it as — a base (makeup primer). It has a slippery feel to it. It leaves the skin feeling silky smooth. It makes my other makeup products glide on better. It contains SPF to protect the skin from the harsh UV rays.

Here are the ingredients:

ACTIVE INGREDIENTS: Zinc Oxide 20.0%

INGREDIENTS: Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice*, Purified Water (Aqua), Caprylic/Capric Triglycerides, Vegetable Glycerin, Simmondsia Chinensis (Jojoba) Seed Oil*, Polyglyceryl-2 Oleate, Polyhydroxystearic Acid, Polyglyceryl-2 Stearate, Helianthus Annuus (Sunflower) Seed Oil*, Punica Granatum (Pomegranate) Seed Oil*, Hydrogenated Castor Oil, Dimethicone, Magnesium Sulfate, Sorbitan Sesquioleate, Fruit Stem Cells (Malus Domestica, Solar Vitis) and BioActive 8 Berry Complex*, Sodium Hyaluronate, Magnesium Ascorbyl Phosphate (Vitamin C), Borago Officinalis (Borage) Seed Oil*, Cucumis Sativus (Cucumber) Fruit Extract*, Zea Mays (Corn) Starch*, Camellia Sinensis (White Tea) Leaf Extract*†, Hibiscus Sabdariffa Flower Extract*†, Tocopherol, Iron Oxides, Phenethyl Alcohol, Ethylhexylglycerin, Citrus Tangerina (Tangerine) Peel Oil, Citrus Aurantium Dulcis (Orange) Peel Oil* *Certified Organic Ingredients †Fair Trade Ingredients

This beauty balm contains oils, such as jojoba, sunflower, pomegranate, castor, borage, tangerine, and citrus, but it has not broken my skin out. Love how it contains Vitamin C too! I love the benefits of this beauty balm. It’s nice to have that extra layer of SPF under my actual makeup. My skin certainly feels smoother in texture when I remove my makeup. I’m not done with the first tube of this product, but I’ve already purchased another one. Summer is just around the corner, and I’m in need of a cream that protects my skin from the harsh UV rays! I’ll continue to use it for the next upcoming weeks and see what happens. I like it so far. 🙂 An updated review coming soon.

I stumbled upon a BB Cream. I know I said I wasn’t going to buy a new one any time soon, but I really wanted something that’ll improve my skin texture and has SPF in it. Here I have, Andalou Naturals Vitamin C Beauty Balm with SPF 30. The sun protection is from Zinc Oxide, which is pretty awesome! I’ve been avoiding the sun as much as possible because I don’t have a legit sunblock for my face (all of them break me out like crazy). I used to be able to wear a couple of them without any issues. All of a sudden, as I got older, I just can’t. My skin changed. It became more sensitive to SPF. My skin has been more picky than ever before!

Even though this product is called a Beauty Balm, it’s really a tinted moisturizer (or a sheer tint) as it also states on the packaging. I have used this product before. Years ago. Coverage is non-existent. It simply acts as a facial moisturizer. I don’t remember if it broke me out or not. I thought I would give it another chance. One thing that I noticed is that they changed the packaging of this product. It doesn’t come in a pump anymore. YESSS!!! It comes in a twist tube, which makes it easier to dispense the cream. I am aware that this BB Cream is not oil-free. It contains oils — jojoba, sunflower, and borage, to name a few. I was a little nervous about these ingredients before purchasing, but I thought…let’s see what happens. I hope it works.

This BB Cream does contain Vitamin C (Magnesium Ascorbyl Phosphate) to even out the skin tone, brighten, and fight against aging. I love skin care products with Vitamin C. It’s also a vegan and cruelty-free BB Cream.

Let’s see how it goes. I really hope it works! ☺
