Andalou Naturals 1000 Roses Color + Correct CC Cream SPF 30 in Tan

Andalou Naturals 1000 Roses Color + Correct CC Cream SPF 30 in Tan- $19.99

Here’s the quick SCORECARD breakdown. Each question is rated on a scale of 1 to 5, 5 being the best:

1. How do the ingredients look (EWG.org ratings)?- 3: Looking good. It does have Dimethicone which, for some, is a no-no. It’s a ‘3’ on EWG. Also, I couldn’t find ratings for a couple ingredients so I’ll follow up when I hear from the brand.

2. How’s coverage?- 5: Amazing. It’s better than sheer and a solid light coverage option. It evened my skin out so well and felt super lightweight. Skin looked like skin because it soaked right in.

3. Does it last?- 4: Yes! It held up so well. I barely set it with setting powder, and even so, it stuck around for the entire day.

4. Is it non-irritating?- 3: No issues with breakouts here personally, but between the Dimethicone and stronger scent, it may freak out some sensitive skin types.

5. Does it build and blend well with other products?- 4: Yes. I’ve worn it with primer underneath and powder on top. It managed perfectly. No budging, no smearing, no pilling. Worked well!

6. Is the shade range inclusive?- 1: Bummer. I see two options right now. I hope they expand!

7. How conscious is the brand? 3- This product is vegan, gluten-free, and the packaging is recyclable. It isn’t made from recycled material however, so it’s not 100% sustainable…yet.

FINAL SCORE:

23/35

YOU’LL LOVE THIS IF:

  • You’re looking for something that is lightweight, evens out, and provides a little SPF coverage from Zinc Oxide along the way

  • You’re looking for a more budget-friendly lightweight CC cream option

  • You need a product that is vegan, cruelty free, and gluten free. Plus, it has no coconut oil for those prone to breakouts!

  • Dimethicone is NOT a deal-breaker ingredient for you

  • You’re ok with a strong scent of roses upon application. It did fade quickly for me, but it’s worth mentioning!

IFFY INGREDIENTS + EWG RATING:

These were the not-so-great ingredients that didn’t pass the Rule of 3. Click below to find out all the details:

TIP: Percentage matters. It wasn’t listed on the label. I always recommend, if you’re still on the fence, ask the brand “what’s inside?”

Swatch!

Swatch!

 

FINAL VERDICT:

Would I recommend this product to a friend? I’m still waiting to hear back from the brand on a couple of ingredients that I couldn’t find any information on. Once I do, I’ll be sure to update this! In the meantime, I’d recommend one of my favorite, lightweight coverage combos for summer:
