Andalou Naturals (Review & Giveaway)

Inspired Beauty + True Kindness + Mindful Action
I am very picky when it comes to putting things in and on my body! After doing some research on skincare products, I was thrilled to have come by Andalou Naturals! Andalou Naturals is the first beauty brand to achieve 100% Non-GMO Project verification and uses all-natural, vegetarian, gluten-free and fair trade ingredients.
"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.

We value knowing where our ingredients come from, the farmers who grow them, and connecting the human chain of hands that make every step possible from farm to bottle, soil to skin, and botany to beauty.

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 had the opportunity to review Andalou Naturals' All in One Beauty Balm Sheer Tint SPF 30 and their  Oil Control Beauty Balm Un-Tinted SPF 30. I really have enjoyed both of these and for completely different reasons!
The first one I tried was the All in One Beauty Balm Sheer Tint SPF 30. I had actually been looking for a natural tint moisturizer, so I was very excited to try this one out! I wore this alone, and under my make-up when going out! I liked the tint because I tend to get little breakouts on my face, but with the Beauty Balm Sheer Tint, it made my breakouts let noticeable. The consistency is a little thicker then I am used to, but once I let it dry on my face, I couldn't feel it anymore. This was great on those busy days where I just didn't have time to get all dolled up, but still felt confident when around others.

"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."

The second one I tried was the  Oil Control Beauty Balm Un-Tinted SPF 30There are days when my skin can get a little oily, so I really enjoyed using this one as well. I used this one at home a lot because it diminishes pores and excess oil. The Oil Control Beauty Balm is a must have!

"This ultimate 3 in 1 beauty balm blends Fruit Stem Cell Complex, mattifying hydration, and broad spectrum protection to speed cellular renewal, diminish pores and excess oil, and defend against UVA/UVB photo-aging for a clear and healthy complexion."
On my hand is the All in One Beauty Balm Sheer Tint SPF 30 on the top and the Oil Control Beauty Balm Un-Tinted SPF 30 on the bottom. You'll notice the color difference on my hand as I rubbed in the All in One Beauty Balm Sheer Tint SPF 30. My skin is darker and more radiant and I just love the glow that it gives my skin. I will definitely be purchasing another one when this one runs out!
