Andalou Naturals Probiotic +C Renewal Cream and Luminous Eye Serum

Have you heard of the Andalou Naturals skin, body and hair care brand?

As you can probably judge by the “naturals” in the name, Andalou boasts 70% certified organic formulas in their products using fruit stem cells. They even donate $1 to one of four charities for every sale and newsletter subscription, which is pretty cool.

But all of those stats mean very little when it comes to the actual quality of a beauty product. Does Andalou Naturals stack up?

I tried the Andalou Naturals Probiotic +C Renewal Cream and Andalou Naturals Luminous Eye Serum.

Andalou Naturals Probiotic +C Renewal Cream

The renewal cream is best for those with normal and combination skin.

Andalou02Filled with probiotics, vitamin C and fruit stem cells, the Probiotics +C Renewal Cream works as a day or night cream. Just spread it on your face like you would any other moisturizer.

When I first put this on my face, the light moisturizer soaked right into my skin. Even so, I wasn’t so sure it would keep me adequately moisturized, especially with the cold autumn weather.

You can pick this up at the Andalou Naturals website or Amazon for $24.95 suggested retail price for a 1.7 oz. jar.

Andalou Naturals Luminous Eye Serum

The eye serum is good for all skin types.

Andalou03Luminous Eye Serum uses fruit stem cells, polypeptides, vitamin C and caffeine to hydrate the skin around your eyes. Use a very small amount and apply it to your skin.

I had a similar opinion of this that I did with the renewal cream. It hydrated my skin very well and kept it soft and silky for hours afterward.

This one didn’t have the citrus scent. Instead, it has a very light and subtle fresh scent. But, like the renewal cream, it didn’t brighten my skin like it promised. This can be a real dealbreaker for those fighting dark circles under their eyes. I give the Luminous Eye Serum a…
