Green Beauty Crush: Andalou Naturals

 

Hello beauties, 

I'm coming to you with a review about my favorite organic, non-gmo, vegan, fair trade and cruelty-free skincare Andalou Naturals.  I've been using it for about five months now every single day and it has done WONDERS for my skin. Besides stellar ingredients, these lovely products are even friendly to your wallet! :)

Since I moved to Dubai, I've been a fan of the Himalaya brand. My only concern was that most of their creams are for fair complexions and let me tell you that nobody from Slovakia wants to have a white skin when you have summer all year long!  We LOVE that sun touched cappuccino tone! After 33 years of your life, you'll definitely start to see some unpleasant changes on your face. I wanted to try everything beauty gurus were raving about, so I decided I desperately need the Porsche of the skincare La Prairie. I've tried the Anti-aging Rapid Response Booster,  Cellular Swiss Ice Crystal Cream and the Cellular Eye Contour Cream for a couple of months, and yes, my skin looked better, but for that price, I was hoping to have skin smooth like using an Instagram filter.  Once I realized I'm going to have a baby, I switched to all natural and organic cosmetics, because most of the products also contain parabens, PEGs and artificial fragrance, stuff you want to avoid while pregnant. That's when I said au revoir to sinful pricey creams with nasties and I landed back to earth. You know pregnancy is a wonderful time for most women because it not only gives you some really nice volume in the right areas (from cup A to cup C, you know what I'm sayin;)) but it also gives you a wonderful glow. Your skin is just flawless and you can finally shake your hair like a Victoria's Secret goddess on a shoot for Sports Illustrated.

After giving birth to my baby girl, my skin was ravaged with acne and hyper pigmentation.  After searching and trying on zillion creams, I stumbled upon this organic shower gel with mandarin - vanilla scent and I nearly collapsed. Finally, I've found something organic, natural and beautifully smelling! And the ingredients in this shower gel were completely natural and organic. In case you are curious:) (Aloe barbadensis juice*, aqua, helianthus annuus (sunflower) oil*, vegetable glycerin, capric/caprylic triglycerides, glyceryl stearate citrate, cetearyl alcohol, xanthan gum, citrus reticulate (mandarin) and vanilla planifolia extracts*, oenothera biennis (evening primrose) oil*, sodium alginate, butyrospermum parkii (shea) butter*, prunus armeniaca (apricot) oil, theobroma cacao (cocoa) butter*, malus domestica (apple), solar vitis (grape) and vaccinium myrtillus (bilberry) fruit stem).

Ok, so let me tell you about their products I'm currently using because you need to try them too and I'll seriously buy you a coffee if they'll not work for you!

Apricot Probiotic Cleansing Milk

After using this milk my skin feels like my baby's bottom hahaha. So smooth! As a fulltime mama I occasionally wear make up so this milk works perfectly for me. But if you are a make up diva, you may have a problem removing water resistant make up. 

100 Roses Floral Toner

After I cleanse my skin with the milk I spread the toner on a cotton pad and I rub it gently over my skin, you can also spray it if you want to, and it just feels so refreshing. It's uper hydrating, it's excellent for dry, aging skin. Plus the rose-fruity scent is really nice, so there's that!

BioActive 8 Berry Fruit Enzyme Mask

The mask is an absolute dream, it smells heavenly, like some kind of a very fruity mix. When you put it on your skin it feels more like a moisturizer, and it's like you're soaking your skin with vitamins.  Once you put a nice layer on your skin, you just let to sit it for 10 minutes. It does dry down but it doesn’t feel stiff. Then you rinse your skin with cool water. My skin looks and feels so good, that I can't even describe it. So if you have a sensitive or dry skin, this is perfect for you.

Super Goji Peptide Perfection Cream

Beyond the fact that the ingredients are so incredibly solid, this cream melts into the skin without ever feeling greasy or heavy. If you love a light and hydrating cream with light fresh berry scent this will be your new Holy Grail.

Resveratrol Q10 Night Repair Cream

I've never been a fan of night creams because they were greasy and they kind of like clocked my pores, but this one is so smooth, light and so hydrating.  I put it on my skin and my skin just drinks it off.  It's definitely the best night cream I’ve ever tried plus the price is great.

Mandarin-Vanilla Body lotion

If you haven't smelled this mandarin-vanilla body lotion yet, you haven't officially entered the upcoming spring/summer body lotion game. The scent yumilliciously fruity. I use this every day and it leaves my skin soft and moisturized and nourished.

Pros: vegan, non-gmo, organic, fair-trade, cruelty-free

Cons: plastic packaging
