Andalou Naturals Brightening All in One Beauty Balm Sheer Tint with SPF 30 -- 2 fl oz
I CANNOT SAY ENOUGH
I just cannot say enough good things about this product. I had never tried BB creams, because I don't like to use all the chemicals. Since this one is so much more natural, I gave it a shot. I LOVE IT! I am pale, like fish-belly white, and was concerned when I first opened the product. Yes, it does look orange. But if you blend it well, it sinks in and just leaves you with a natural-looking glow.
The product provides my older skin with moisture, has a sunscreen, and even smells nice...like fresh oranges.
I have been wearing this for over a week instead of makeup, and I absolutely love it. Do not expect full coverage, as this product simply smooths things out a little and provides a teensy amount of color.

I like it and I would repurchase
I like this product. Yes it does make me look a little shiny/greasy but I don't mind that much since I know it is good for my skin and not a chemical sunscreen. The color matches me just fine and I am in between light to medium. It goes on easy and smells nice. Its not sticky at all. I doesn't give much coverage. But it is great for everyday use. I bought one for my mom too and she is pale to light skinned and it still blended just fine on her. I would definitely repurchase this.

First off, let me say I absolutely love the Andalou line. I use several of their products, including shampoo, conditioner, and body butter, and will continue to do so. They smell wonderful, work well for me, and are cruelty-free. This product, however, had me disappointed. I have very classic combination skin with a shiny T-zone, and also have very sensitive skin. I usually use a tinted moisturizer with SPF because I don't like the heavy feel of a full-on foundation, but I'd heard so much about these BB creams, I thought I'd give it a shot. From the description, BB creams are a hybrid of a tinted moisturizer with a built in primer and SPF, so I was banking on something sheer. Well, if you are used to wearing a foundation, then this would work really well for you, especially if you are of a lighter olive complexion. I also don't care much for the smell (kind of a heavy orangey scent). I hate wasting a product, so what I do to make this work for me is mix half and half with a light moisturizer.

First B&B cream that works for me and no harsh chemicals.
I have dry to normal skin and this leaves my skin with a dewy, subtle glow.
The smell is wonderful and the ingredients are gentle enough not to bother my sensitive skin. PLUS the 20% zinc oxide makes it an awesome sunscreen.

Love this Beauty Balm
I am happy to know that Andalou is giving me what I've been looking for; a tinted moisturizer and sunscreen. The sunscreen comes from zinc, which is totally natural (yeah!) It could tend to be too white if you put it on thickly. So put it on lightly. It's a wonderful product and does provide light coverage and evens out my blotches!
