***update! This post was written years ago and Andalou Naturals has since changed their formula for this product! It’s much less effective & now contains comedogenic ingredients to boot! Please check out my new post on Earthwise Beauty’s Nap In the Meadow Face Serum!***
Andalou Naturals is a natural skin-care company that offers amazing products for a wide range of skin types and skin-care needs. I first stumbled upon their brand when I was perusing Vitacost.com in the hopes of finding a natural, affordable product to even out my skin tone, reduce my hyperpigmentation from acne scarring, and something that would help active blemishes to heal more quickly. You can also purchase this serum at a great price on Amazon.
Andalou Naturals is a science-based skin-care line that fills their products, in every category, with their trademark fruit stem cell science complex, which has a wonderful blend of antioxidants and nutrients that heal your skin. As much as I love DIY projects, there is simply no way products like these can be duplicated due to the extensive range of ingredients that are infused into this serum’s blend.
I recently posted an article on the incredible benefits of taking Turmeric/Circumin internally, which included an amazing recipe for Turmeric Milk, which you can find here.
So, it’s no wonder that applying turmeric topically will also yield AMAZING results, as well. This is a product that I’ve repurchased time and time again ever since discovering it about a year ago and that says A LOT coming from someone who hardly ever repurchases a product!
Andalou Naturals Turmeric + C Enlighten Serum gives me the following results:
- Reduces active blemishes
- Evens out blotchy skin
- Reduces overall redness in my skin tone
- Reduces hyperpigmention from post-acne scarring and recent breakouts
- Moisturizes my skin with healing oils
- Contains Vitamin C and Turmeric to brighten overall skin tone
- Perfect as a lightweight moisturizer for oily skin (Would work well applied underneath a regular moisturizer for drier skin types)
- Perfect primer under makeup
This product is yellow in color, due to the turmeric:
(When massaged into the skin, there is no yellow tint leftover)
This product has a light, citrus scent that does not linger once applied.
This product comes in a 1.1oz hygienic pump-style bottle:
(The darker packaging helps preserve the product from exposure to sunlight. I recommend storing this product in a dark cabinet or drawer away from extremes in temperature due to the volatile nature of Vitamin C)

Vitamin C: Dramatically improves surface pigmentation, uneven tone, and dark spots caused by sun damage and over-stimulation of melanin. Invigorates dermal circulation and cell turnover, boosts collagen and elastin, and fortifies skin’s immunity to defend against free-radicals that can age skin prematurely.
Turmeric Extract: Increases healthy circulation and defends against free radicals for a balanced complexion.
Grape Seed Polyphenols: one of the most powerful antioxidant, anti-bacterial, anti-viral, and anti-inflammatory agents.
Sea Buckthorn Oil: promotes cellular and tissue regeneration, helps protect against sun damage, while absorbing harmful UV rays.
This product retails for $24.99, however, if you buy it from Vitacost.com, the price ranges from $17.99-19.99 PLUS whatever discount code they have at the time. Also, you can get an additional $10.00 off your Vitacost.com purchase by using my referral link listed below!
This is hands down my must-have skincare product that I have seen the most dramatic improvement in my overall skin health from using it. Before this product, when I would get a new blemish, the hyperpigmentation would remain on my skin for months/years. When I use this product, my hyperpigmentation from blemishes fades in about a month where all I need is a light dusting of mineral makeup to make my skin look as close to flawless as it’s going to get!
I’ve been repurchasing this serum at the best price I can find here on Amazon.
