      Good mineral-based sunblock. I like the fact that it has high zinc oxide and no titanium dioxide in it, plus no artificial anything. It does leave a bit of a whitening cast, but still worth it. Nice product.

        Claims to provide hydration, oil control, and sun protection, hits 2 out of 3.
        Great consistency, not sticky or gummy like other BB creams. I wish there were dosage instructions, a little goes a long way. The moisturizer absorbs quickly but not completely. The 20% Zinc Oxide, while great SPF, does leave a bit of a white shadow on my olive skin. Oil control? Not so much. For a matte finish you need to blot then apply loose powder. Perhaps I'm expecting too much.

          I just added this item to my drugstore.com list, although my first purchase was at a local boutique. I do not wear foundational make-up, so I find this sunscreen just perfect for facial application. It provides such a smooth and translucent finish, it's hard to believe it contains 20% zinc oxide. Top quality ingredients all the way. For my t-zone skin, it leaves no sticky or white finish at all, but it does keeps my 55-year young skin looking luminous!

                I wanted to update my review. Turns out that a vitamin C serum from SkinCeuticals that I was using underneath this product was hindering it's absorption. This contains vitamin C, so I don't have to worry about a separate antioxidant serum for day any more. Now that I apply it to completely bare skin, it is much more effective and keeps my skin more matte. I apply my makeup right on top, no primer and it seems to be doing a good job now. I still need to blot my face, but it doesn't look greasy and that's a big plus. I now give this product 5 stars.

                  I was very excited to try this because it is gluten free and for oil control. It smells great, but it is a very thick cream that doesn't absorb into my skin. It felt so greasy, I had to blot my face. I tried less the next time and it was better, but I still felt greasy before I even got to work at 7am. Bummed it didn't work for me.

                    Comments about Andalou Naturals Oil Control Beauty Balm Un-Tinted SPF 30, 2 fl oz:

                    All skin product reviews should be considered in light of the skin type of the person using it. I happen to have the oiliest skin on earth. I am not over-exaggerating. I have had problems controlling both oil over-production and acne on my face for decades, since I was a pre-teen, and I am now close to 30. Even to this day, if I use oil blotting sheets any time of day, even within the first hour after cleansing, I can easily go through 5,6,7 sheets and still have plenty of oil left on my face to turn the sheets clear! Because of my skin type, I have had the hardest, most frustrating time finding a daily use sunscreen product that doesn't make my oily skin worse, and doesn't aggravation my acne condition. Chemical sunscreen ingredients are by nature very oily compounds; I know this because I am a researcher in the cosmetic industry. So I always look for mineral-based sunscreens, that means ones that use Zinc Oxide or Titanium Dioxide as the active ingredients. Zinc also happens to be good for controlling acne. And what is the only active sunscreen ingredient in this beauty balm - Zinc Oxide! Hooray! Very clever on the part of the formulators to choose this sunscreen active in a beauty balm (BB cream) meant for people who need a "clarifying" product (that would be people with ACNE-PRONE SKIN). So I tried it, and have never been more pleased with a sun protection product meant to be applied to the face. Not only does it not aggravate my oily skin or acne, IT ACTUALLY HELPS!!!! This product is a God-send to my daily skin care regime, and I hate seeing other people write negative reviews about it when they are not choosing this product to match their skin type. If you have oily skin, I bet you will not regret trying this product out as a solution to protect your skin from damaging UV radiation while keeping your skin looking and feeling great at the same time.

                        This cream was hard to spread and it was so over drying that my skin was flaky. It did not absorb. It left a white film on my face. My hands were dried out from applying it. I had to toss it. Skip this.

                          I'm deeply impressed by the quality, effectiveness, and frugal-friendly price of all of Andalou Natural's products, and this BB cream is no exception. My skin usually starts to shine with oil within 2 hours after cleansing, but this product leaves my skin shine-free all day long, and though I work nights and am not frequently in the sun, the SPF 30 is a definite plus.

                          One drawback, however. I have darker toned skin and this product tends to leave my face a bit ashen, which is pretty disappointing after all this moisturizing. If that's the case for you as well, just use a bit less and you may have to rub it in for a longer period for it to really absorb.
