When it comes to skincare, most of us prefer products with natural ingredients, but still want results. I recently came across skincare brand Andalou Naturals, which promises to deliver just this, describing their brand as “Pioneering Natural Cosmeceuticals”.
All of their products contain their signature innovation “Fruit Stem Cell Science”, which is described as an antioxidant defence system and is a blend of extracts from:
- Grape (Solar Vitis): a rare grape with a strong tolerance to UV exposure, which helps to protect our own skin against harmful UV rays and other environmental stresses
- Heirloom Apple (Malus Domestica): a rare Swiss apple, which is known for it’s longevity potential and therefore ability to protect skin stem cells from premature aging
- Swiss Alpine Rose: grown at very high altitudes and therefore adapted to protecting itself from the extreme cold, extracts are derived from the stem cells of the Alpine Rose leaves, to help protect our own skin against environmental stresses, dryness and UV exposre
- Argan Tree: stem cells are derived from the highly resistant Argan Tree, to help protect
This blend is then delivered to skin cells via a target liposome delivery system, to help repair and protect the skin.
Their range is then also further enhanced by a range of natural and innovative ingredients which are also known for their internal health benefits, such as Turmeric, Probiotics, Kombucha, Purple Carrot and Coconut Water Electrolytes, which I absolutely love!
I tried out the Clear Skin range, which is perfect for those with oily skin and congested pores. Their skincare ranges also include Age Defying, Brightening, Sensitive, Quenching and one for men.
The products I tried from this range were:
Fruit stem cell complex with argan stem cells, manuka honey and organic cane sugar gently exfoliate dull, dry surface cells for improved tone and texture as meyer lemon refreshes and revitalizes for a bright, balanced complexion.
Fruit stem cell complex with argan stem cells and kombucha probiotics gently diffuse into a creamy lather of rich emollients as willow bark purifies pores and aloe vera polysaccharides whisk away excess oil and dull, dry surface cells for a clear, balanced complexion.
Fruit stem cell complex with argan stem cells, kombucha probiotics, and aloe vera polysaccharides instantly hydrate with skin calming nutrients to soothe and gently balance pH as willow bark purifies pores for a clear, refreshed complexion.
Fruit stem cell complex with argan stem cells, willow bark, salicylic acid, and camphor extracts instantly go to work to help calm inflammation, combat blemishes below the surface, and speed recovery for a clean, clear complexion.
Fruit stem cell complex with argan stem cells, acai berry, and kombucha probiotics nourish and fortify as aloe vera polysaccharides soothe and condition with oil-free hydration for a clear, balanced complexion.
Even from the first use, I really loved all of the products in this range. They left my skin feeling super clean and also really FELT like they were doing something when I applied them. Plus, all of the products in the range all smelt incredible.
The standouts for me were the toner and blemish gel. The toner had a lovely pepperminty scent which just left me skin feeling super clean and refreshed. The blemish vanish gel worked so well too, again I could really feel it working, and when applied at night it definitely seemed to dry out and calm down my acne by the morning.
My skin isn’t 100% perfect at the moment, and acne is always hard to just magically fixed as it’s caused by so many different internal issues, however this range definitely helped reduce the effects as much as possible and definitely left me skin feeling fresh and clean!
