Review and Giveaway: Andalou Naturals Probiotic +C Renewal Cream

Many of us have heard of probiotics in our food, but what about in our moisturizers? Andalou Naturals makes a moisturizer with probiotics, fruit stem cells, and vitamin C designed to give you a radiant, glowing complexion. It's called Andalou Naturals Probiotic + C Renewal Cream.

  • Plesant fruity scent
  • A little goes a long way
  • Leaves face hydrated but not oily
  • Contains organic and fair trade ingredients
  • Easy to apply
  • May need to mail order
This Probiotic + C Renewal Cream has a lovely scent and has a nice, non-greasy feel. It can easily be worn under makeup or applied at night during a normal skin care routine. Designed for normal to combination skin, this moisturizer is fairly light. With 72% certified organic ingredients, the $25 price tag is a fair value considering how long each jar will last. To note, Andalou also offers occasional discounts through their newsletter and Facebook page if you're looking to save more.

While this is a gluten-free product, the use of honey (and possibly the allantoin) make this not a vegan product. Although I was happy with the performance, I'd love to see this made vegan. Ranking about a 2 on the EWG Skin Deep Database, this product is made with gentle ingredients. If you're looking for a brightening moisturizer and don't mind the honey, Andalou's Renewal Cream is a great alternative to conventional moisturizers.
