Do you struggle with acne and problematic skin? Andalou Naturals clarifying line has been helping my skin so much over the last few months. When it comes to facial care I like to use the products for at least two weeks because you get a much clearer idea on how well it will do for your skin.
The entire Clarifying line is filled with so many amazing skin care goodies from facial wash, masks, peels, and scrubs. All of their products are Non-GMO, Paraben, Sulfate, and Gluten free. My personal favorites are these:
Citrus Kombucha Cleansing Gel-
This cleansing gel has to be my favorite from the line. My skin is oily and prefers gel cleansers to foam. This contains fruit stem cell and citrus Kombucha, which provides probotics and aminos to balance the skin. For those that don’t know probiotics are the healthy bacteria that our body needs. One of the main culprits for acne is bad bacteria, having a cleanser to help with that is making such a difference. It also contains willow bark, a natural form of salicylic acid to combat acne. Best of all my skin did not feel dry and tight after use. It’s gentle and cleansed my skin with out stripping it of it’s natural oils.
To use: Apply to damp skin gently massage and rinse clean.
Aloe+Willow Bark Pore Minimizer-
This is a toner applied after cleansing with facial gel. Just like the cleanser this contains willow bark to add that extra protection against acne forming. It does contain peppermint essential oils so you might feel a tingling when applying but it’s nothing that burns or is harmful to the skin. It also contains certified organic BioActive 8 Berry complex which is chocked full of antioxidants to slow cellular damage and repair broken skin.
To use: After cleansing saturate cotton pad and gently sweep over face and neck to balance pH and prepare skin for moisturizing.
BB Oil Control Beauty Balm-
Normally I shy away from beauty balms because they aren’t formulated for oily acne prone skin. This hasn’t broken my skin out but I will say that a little goes a long way. The cream is thick but you don’t need much to cover your entire face. It also has an spf of 30 so I use this in the morning before heading out. If you’re not using any sun protection on your face you should. This not only protects the skin but for oily and acne prone skin it prevents discoloration from getting worse. This beauty balm is 3 in 1 blends of fruit stem cells, superfruit antioxidants, and mattifying hydration. Any mattifying cream is a plus for us oily girls because it helps to prevent shine throughout the day.
To use: Apply a dime sized amount 15 minutes before sun exposure.
Acai + White Tea Oil Free Moisturizer –
I have been searching for a nighttime facial lotion for so long. My skin needs something lightweight but still hydrating. This oil free moisturizer had been a dream for my skin. It provides me enough hydration without me waking up feeling like a grease ball. The first ingredient is Aloe Vera, which is great for moisture and skin repair. The acai berry gives my skin the antioxidant boost it needs to repair overnight. Here are just a few pluses for this moisturizer renews dormant cells, repair damaged cells, regenerate healthy cells.
To use: Apply a dime-sized amount to clean face and neck
Kombucha Enzyme Exfoliating Peel-
With any good skincare line comes masks, scrubs, and exfoliators that provide your skin with an extra needed boost. If you are not using some sort of mask or exfoliator weekly I high recommend you do, your skin will thank you! I love Andalou Naturals exfoliating peel because it’s gently but gets the job done. It’s not like your traditional dermatologist facial peels which leave your skin flaking like a snake. This slowly sloughs off the dead skin cells and allows new regenerated cells to come though. Like their facial cleanser this exfoliator contains kombucha enzyme for more probiotic goodness infused into your pores. I apply this nightly no more than twice a week to see results.
To use: Apply evenly to clean dry skin. Leave on for 10 minutes. Rinse with cool water. Use 1-3 times per week.
Overall I really am enjoying this clarifying line from Andalou Naturals. If you would like to try this line out for yourself click here to SHOP
