Andalou Naturals Clarifying Oil Control Beauty Balm Un-Tinted with SPF30 -- 2 fl oz
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.

Left my skin with a white tint! I expect little of a bb cream....light coverage, sun protection. This did not provide what I was looking for.

I use this product mainly as a mattifying facial sunscreen. I use it daily as part of my beauty regimen. I apply it first, then use a primer, then apply my makeup. It mattifies my face wonderfully. The product is a little thick and does have a slight white cast, however I find that it goes away after I apply my primer. I am a woman of colour and I still look fine after I apply my foundation. There is no grey appearance. I think the key is to use a primer after. Although I love this product, I don't think it should be branded as a bb cream. I would probably never wear it alone because of the white cast. Instead I consider this product to be an excellent mattifying facial sunscreen. I'm planning to try the tinted version next to see if it resolves the white overcast problem. If you are purchasing this, just remember that this is a thick cream, so apply a little and spread it out. A little goes a long way.
