    Let me first say, I wasn't shopping around for a beauty balm, simply for a lightly tinted moisturizer with sunscreen. I think the pricing is fair for the ingredients used and the quality of the item. I appreciate that this product uses only Zinc Oxide for its sunscreen factor, since I'm avoiding chemical sunblocks. I looked up all the ingredients on EWG's Skin Deep and I'm happy with the low numbers! I think it's great that they don't use cheap, gross oils like castor oil. No glycerin, so the moisturizer isn't pulling moisture from the deeper layers of my skin just to make my outer layer of skin look nice - causing more problems in the long run. The product smells slightly sweet and citrus-y thanks to the orange oil. I know they say orange oil is phototoxic but it's the very last ingredient on the list, so I'm hoping they used a very small percentage of it.

    The product looks slightly orange when it comes out of the tube, but after you apply it and let it soak into your skin, there is no orange tint. Definitely very sheer coverage. Very moisturizing - my face feels incredibly supple for hours after I've put it on. I have dry/combination skin, though not acne prone. Recently, I've been struggling with a patch of dry, flaky skin near my chin/cheeks, and using mineral powder foundation only serves to highlight those flakes. This moisturizer helps cover it up and moisturize/heal it! Can you say, "YAY"?! I like that it makes my face look dewy (key word: dewy, not oily). It's a natural kind of shine that I personally like, though it may not be for everyone. (Being shiny is normal, people. You don't want to be as dry/matte as that paper you're blotting on your face).

    I'm honestly still not 100% sure what this fruit stem cell complex and bioactive berry complex are, even though I've looked at their website - but hey, it seems good for me and I love knowing that I'm actually benefitting from what I'm leaving on my face. I only hope they don't add any weird stuff to this/re-formulate it!!!

    This product only comes in one shade and I will warn the fair-skined women: this shade will not work for you. It is a medium tone. Other than the color, this felt nice on the skin and would probably be a great addition to my beauty arsenal if it came in a lighter shade.

      The ingredients are wonderful and natural. It is best for dry skin. It's very moisturizing. Has SPF which is fantastic. Decent coverage. Makes me face a little too shiny, especially in summer. The main drawback is the light shade is too dark for me. I have fair skin and it looks too orange on me. I wish they had an even lighter shade and I would use this in winter.

        Comments about Andalou Naturals All in One Beauty Balm Sheer Tint SPF 30, 2 fl oz:

        I have acne and large pores, so I am not comfortable leaving the house without foundation. In the past, sunblocks haven't mixed well with my foundation and they often made my acne worse.

        Although I was skeptical, I decided to try this product. I spot-tested and saw that it did not exacerbate my acne. It even provides light coverage (because it is tinted), so I started wearing my foundation less. When I did wear it, I had no problem putting it on over the sunblock. After using it for about four months, my skin looks much healthier! My pores look smaller, my skin tone is more even, and I have almost no acne now. I don't think it was *just* the sunblock (I've been doing a few things differently), but it really helped!

        Also, it lasts a long time. So the cost is not as bad as it seems.

        I would warn some that this tint is slightly orange and better for mid-range skin tones. If you're very fair or very dark, you may want to try an Andalou sunblock that isn't tinted.

        The best BB cream I've ever tried

          Comments about Andalou Naturals All in One Beauty Balm Sheer Tint SPF 30, 2 fl oz:

          First, I love the clean fruity smell which is the first thing I notice when I apply this cream. I live in a (normally) very dry climate which has been humid lately, and the cream has a silky texture but isn't too heavy. It glides easily over my face. I've used Maybelline's BB cream for over a year, and I always had to apply a thin layer of moisturizer underneath it. Not so with Andalou Naturals: this BB actually supplies my skin with the moisture it needs. I don't have "mature" skin just yet, but at 32 I do want to take care of my skin. I was a little wary of the orangey color when I first applied this BB, but it blends right in with my natural skin color while evening out my tone. And having over 300 days a year of sunny weather where I live, the SPF is a huge plus. Will definitely be buying this again.

            The product feels a little greasy at first, but smooths right into my skin and feels lightweight all day. The color tint is minor and worked great with my winter color. Have to wait and see how it goes with the summer tan. The tint is great for seeing where you've applied the lotion. It feels like I use a lot fir full coverage, but was probably not using enough of my old sheer product.

                This product is very oily and makes your skin very shiny. Maybe good for someone with dry skin. I was looking for a bit of coverage...this has none!

                    I was incredibly excited to receive this product after reading all the raving reviews. Not only was the texture heavy and unflattering on my skin, the color was much too dark. I normally wear fair to light hued makeup and this was something for someone with a much darker complexion. I was really disappointed to also find out that this product is NOT RETURNABLE even though the color is off.

                      I have been using this under powder on days when I am going to be exposed to the sun. It can feel heavy if I apply too much, so I am careful to use enough to feel I'm protected from the sun, but not too much to add shine to my already oily complexion. It is sheer, so do not expect coverage for acne or redness, but it is the best BB sunscreen I have found so far. I still wish it were a tad more matte, but overall, it is nice, and I will continue to use it. I am becoming a loyal Andalou fan - even though I am a product junkie, I find myself returning to the products mentioned in this review over and over again...because they are VERY effective for my oily/acne prone skin. Very pleased with this line!

                        It gives my face and neck a nice looking shot of color. Smells great and my face glows after I apply it. The lotion is pretty thick so in the dry winter I apply a base moisturizer before applying it so that it goes on smoothly and more evenly on my dry face. Worth the money!

                              I LOVE this balm!! It moisturizes very well without being greasy, smells wonderful, works very well as a sunscreen, and has improved the condition of my skin. I tend to have oily/combo skin that is prone to breakouts - my skin has been much clearer and has been more consistent throughout the day. I used to fluctuate between feeling like my skin was too dry, to feeling like my skin was oily enough to fry an egg on - I'm using fewer oil blot sheets throughout the week (some days not at all!) yet my skin still feels well-moisturized even with the weather changing recently (dry, autumn weather in SoCal).
                              The tint is VERY sheer - I don't even notice it.
