Andalou Naturals {Review & Giveaway}

"Andalou Naturals embodies beauty in action. We infuse the best of nature and knowledge into mindful and effective products that are good for people and the planet. Our skin care, hair care and body care products are made thoughtfully and beautifully, blending advanced Fruit Stem Cell Science with natural and fair-trade ingredients, with a minimum 70% certified organic content, for visible and healthy results."

I LOVE beauty care! I love it even more when I know it was thoughtful made with wonderful ingredients. When I was given the chance to review a skin care product from Andalou Naturals I was beyond excited. It is so difficult to find a product that doesn't contain parabens and other unhealthy ingredients. It is especially important for me because I have very sensitive skin.

What I like about this company:
  
- For every Andalou.com sale and newsletter subscription, the company donates $1 to one of our four charitable organizations.  
-100% of Andalou’s special-edition A Force of Nature Hand Cream’s net sales goes to charity.
- Certified organic
- Use Fair-Trade Certified Ingredients
- Eco-Friendly
- Cruelty-Free Standards. 

What you won't find in their products:

-Sulfates Petrochemicals, Phthalates, Synthetic Colors and Dyes, Artificial Fragrances, Triclosan, GMO, PEG, MEA, TEA, DEA, Synthetic Preservatives and Parabens

The product I reviewed:


All in One Beauty Balm Sheer Tint with SPF 30

Andalou Naturals Fruit Stem Cell Science 
renews skin at the cellular level, blending nature 
and knowledge for visible Brightening results.

Fruit Stem Cell Complex is the star of this multi-benefit BB, 
blending superfruit antioxidants, nourishing moisturizers, and 
broad spectrum protection with natural mineral-tint color for sheer, flawless coverage in one easy step.

• Naturally sheer, mineral-tint color
• Complements most skin tones
• Wear alone or under make-up
• Chemical-free UVA/UVB protection
• Nanoparticle Free


I have to say I love BB creams! Since I first learned of BB's I have been hooked and this product from Andalou Naturals is top notch. The first thing I noticed was the smell. It's wonderful! It has a sweet citrus smell, a clear indication of the vitamin C and fruit they put in the product. When putting it on it's smooth, light and has a great tint to it. I have fair skin and it matched perfectly with my complexion. In addition the beauty balm is beyond moisturizing! My skin gets very dry in the winter and is sensitive to creams in general. This BB made my face moist and didn't make my skin feel greasy. That's a big plus for me because I hate the greasy feeling of lotion. 

Win It!
