Andalou Naturals Clarifying Oil Control Beauty Balm Un-Tinted with SPF30 -- 2 fl oz
Perfect Under Makeup
This product is wonderful! I have been so impressed with it that I am actually going out of my way to write my first product review EVER. I was apprehensive about buying it at first, but decided to give it a try. I am SO glad I did! I tend to have an oily T-zone, and this moisturizer is the only one I have found that doesn't leave me with a shiny face by the end of the day. It is perfect underneath my powder, and I love that it is SPF 30. It does have a white-ish tint when you first rub it in (as a sunscreen would, but to a lesser degree), though is quickly absorbed within two minutes without any white residue.I've been searching for a moisturizer that I can wear under my makeup that doesn't make my skin look greasy by the end of the day and this is the only one I have found. I absolutely LOVE this product!

I was really hoping that this would be good, but it left a white cast on my face and it was hard to spread on.

My New Go To
I have been searching for an oil control day moisturizer with an SPF, that is all natural and let me tell you it very tough. What I had been doing it using the Desert Essence Thoroughly Clean moisturizer (which is also a very good product for oily/combination skin) and adding in a sunscreen. Which worked well, but it really wasn't' what I wanted. This is leaps and bounds better.
wonderful texture. Helps balance my skin so it well hydrated but not oily or sticky. Keeps me matte throughout the day, but not dead looking. High SPF (which I love) without the white residue. Helped with the clarity of my skin, which also means it hasn't broken me out. It has a glorious citrus scent. It basically does everything it says on the packaging. I can't say enough good things. I really highly recommend it. I just wish there was more in the tube.
I will be repurchasing.

The best sunscreen for my oily/combination skin
This sunscreen exceeds my expectation in many ways. First of all, the ingredients are great. Zinc oxide is the only physical sunscreen that can sufficiently block both UVA and UVB. This sunscreen contains a high percentage of zinc oxide. Second, unlike other zinc oxide products, this on is NOT greasy at all. It sinks right into my skin and keeps my skin shine free all day. Third, there is no white cast from this product. Fourth, it does not cause break-outs.
I've been searching online for a physical sunscreen with all natural ingredients that won't cause shiny looks and break-outs. The search is over.
*** This is not a BB cream although the name claims so.

I have combo skin right now and in live in AZ which is a harsh climate for skin. In the summer I am oily but still want to treat and protect aging skin and this is perfect! It soaks right into your skin, no breakouts and my skin feels very comfortable. If you feel you look a bit pasty add bronzer, easy. It is a very good sunscreen and it is also available in the tinted version which I just ordered to try.
