Yes, the color is orangey. I am asian and even on me it's bit unnatural. I can imagine on whiter skin the color might be a bigger problem. But! It's extremely rare to find zinc sunblock with the right color. Most zinc products leave your face pastey white. I myself prefer bit orangey skin tone over ghosty white. My problem with the product is that it's super greasy and that, it smears right off, if anything comes in contact with the face- a hand, sweat, clothes, etc. I used to surf. For bio safety and stability under sun and water, I've tried my share of mineral sunblocks. Most of them might be greasy but all of them have been extremely stable on the skin. So much so, it's very difficult to get zinc sunblock off the face. Won't come off scrubbing with soap and water. The only thing that takes off zinc sunblock completely is oil cleansing. But this Andalou product is very prone to smear, sweat and water. It's gone when anything touches face. It's even more smear prone than your average foundation. You can tissue off. probably comes off easily with soap n water. Some might find this convenient. But I walk everywhere and sweat. I also do sports outside. This smearing off all the time thing is inconvenient for me. I only recommend this product for ladies who stay in office all day and nothing ever touches their face.

Plus one star for size Plus one star for the price Plus one star for the scent But Minus one star for lack of moisturing Minus one star for dimethicone, silicone ingredient Great size, pricing and scent but only offers light hydration. My skin felt tight and dry right after using it. And there is dimethicone. I don't like this lotion but am stuck with the whole 32oz of it... For those of single house hold, consider this before you commit.
I am quite perplexed about all the fantastic reviews about this lotion. They claim stetch marks and cellulites have disappeared. I've just used up the bottle applying every night after shower. My blemishes and stretch marks and cellulites are all still there. Didn't experience any firming either. Yup, I expected too much out of 7$ lotion. If the company's claim and reviews were disregarded, as a simple lotion, it's okay. Faint scent that is slightly citrusy wouldn't bother anyone. Absorbs fast. Not sticky or oily. But only offers very light moisturing. I personally prefer sticky heavy moisturizer. Hence 2 stars for me.

And it's super greasy too. I only recommend Andalou product for ladies who stay in office all day and nothing ever touches their face.

I've ordered quite a few body lotions from this site recently but i loved none. Everyone lotion: no moisturizing. At all. Whatsoever. I felt dry right after putting it all over liberally. Dimethicone in it but the silicon did nothing to harbor any moisture in the skin. Gave it away Reviva friming lotion: very light moisturizing if any. No firming Avalon CoQ10 firming lotion: better one of the 3 but nothing amazing. It does moisturize somewhat. But small quantities and it's used up really fast. No firming. I didn't expect much from Everyday Shea, because it partially resembled Everyone Lotion in pictures-a jumbo sized cheap thing. But i needed inexpensive lotion with a pump for convenience for frequent summer showers. Some reviews were discouraging. Saying runny texture and not moisturizing enough. But boy, i am glad I ordered it. The viscosity is light not runny. And it does moisturize! I put the lotion on and it stays on skin long enough to spread or rub then it disappears. It's not greasy nor sticky but hydrates. I don't know how they do it! Light texture spread easily so you need only small amount. The size is not humongous like Everyone lotion but it's going to last. Simple good ingredient(no silicon!) with such decent pricing, I am throughly satisfied with this product. My favorite lotion from iherb so far. Or possibly my most satisfying purchase from iherb. PS: not moisturing enough for dry winter skin. The scent was less than fetching but I grew to like it.
My third box. It really works. Been constipated all my life. Helped with regularity. And also, uh...with size of the regularity. With cactus fruit smoothie in the morning with a pearl, I am pretty regular.

Was quite skeptical of the brand, over priced and all. But ingredients were good and there wasn't much offering here for sunburn so I tried it. What a pleasant surprise. Healed the burn in a week or so Went back to the regular lotion and keeping this one in fridge for the future burn
I've used up whole jar. Nothing special. It offers some moisturing, not super. Nothing really to complain about either. Except that I don't think any of the ingredients are soked into the skin. When creamed skin comes in contact with water, it turns soapy slippery. I really didn't like that.

These are not full size brushs, mind you. They are about half the size. Wish they mentioned this on the product page. Wouldn't have bought them if I had know. Size aside, nothing special about these brushes either.

Oh my lord, didn't expect much from healthy cookies but I was super pleasantly surprised! Tried many many of the cookies offered on iherb. They were alright but this is by far the best tasting one. Not too sweet cocoa cookies with slight salty tang is how I would describe it. Do try!
