Andalou Naturals Vitamin C Beauty Balm

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.

Here’s my 6 months + 3 weeks results! =)

I introduced some new skin care products into my skin care routine for this week. They are…

Here are my thoughts on each:

Cos De BAHA MA Peptide Facial Toner: Lightweight, absorbs into the skin very well, not sticky as it seems, hasn’t broken my skin out. This makes a very good lightweight gel/serum moisturizer for oily skin. It didn’t feel like a ‘facial toner’ as it states on the bottle. I’ll keep using it for extra moisture. I like it so far.

InstaSkincare Retinol Serum: Lightweight, absorbs into the skin well, somewhat drying but tolerable, no breakouts. It’s not bad. I haven’t used it long enough to see results. It hasn’t given me any breakouts.

Alpha Skin Care Intensive Renewal Serum: Possibly the best AHA skin care product I’ve encountered so far. It works. It makes the skin peel. But that comes with a price. It dries the skin out and causes the skin to breakout initially. I can’t use this AHA every day. 1-2 times a week is more than enough. As I stated before, it is drying yet effective.

Alright everyone! Even though I have new skin care products, I’m moving in a different direction. This is my last post on my ‘BP Journey’ or ‘Clear Skin Journey’. BP has done what it can do, but I can still see tiny, stubborn clogged pores. They are so annoying! Once upon a time, BP could do it all. Not this time. So I have started my Tretinoin Journey! I’ve always wanted to get back on a retinoid. I think it’s time after using Differin (which didn’t work) and retinol (too weak on my skin too). I’ve done my rounds with retinoids and love the results (when it works on the skin) in the past. It’s spectacular for acne. It does wonders to the skin. Awesome stuff. I will share my first week experience next week! I’m truly excited to share my experience with everyone! See you all there!
