 I love CC creams! They are the McGyver of beauty products.  I like using CC creams for their color correcting properties, sun protection and skin care benefits.  Since I have Melasma (dark spots on my skin), I never leave my house without SPF.  The CC cream is the quickest way for me to hide my sun spots and putting sun block before taking the kids to school in the mornings.  Today I will be reviewing a CC Cream from one of my favorite non-toxic, natural skin care brands: Andalou Naturals 1000 Roses CC Cream!

Andalou Naturals 1000 Roses CC Cream Review

I bought my Andalou Naturals 1000 Roses CC Cream from Amazon.com for $12 (yeah for Prime!).  The CC cream is available in 2 shades: Sheer Nude and Sheer Tan.  I picked the “sheer tan” shade because it was summer and my face was a bit tan then.  The first thing I noticed when I opened was its smell.  This CC cream smells AMAZING!!!  It really smells like a bouquet of roses.  That’s because of the ingredients in the product which includes Alpine Rose stem cells.  Other ingredients include Andalou’s BioActive 8 Berry Complex, fruit stem cells from apple and grapes, and organic Aloe Vera.  This CC cream is super packed with age defying powerful antioxidants and cell regeneration properties plus chemical-free UVA/UVB sunscreen.

The Andalou Naturals 1000 Roses CC Cream has a very luxe feel to it.  It is really thick and a little really goes a long way.  The coverage is very sheer and I still have to use concealer on my dark spots.  This CC cream leaves a dewey effect on the skin but nothing you cannot fix with a little powder or blotting papers.  I wear it on top of my moisturizer to help alleviate the dryness and tightness I was experiencing during the summer.  Just to be clear, this is a skin care product with a dab of color not a replacement for a foundation.  I usually wear this when foundation is not appropriate like when going to the gym.

Overall I really like the Andalou Naturals 1000 Roses CC Cream because it makes my skin feel great.  I also like the fact that is vegan, cruelty free, dermatologist tested and contains non GMO ingredients.  Not bad for $14.  I have switched to using this on a daily basis but I will try the “Sheer Nude” shade in the colder months.
