I only use AND review products that are cruelty free, All-natural and often vegan. I Also look for products that are eco-friendly and certified-organic (I will specify).
I am not paid for these reviews and all the following products have been sent to me.
Osea Skincare products (coupon code included)
I am so excited to be reviewing this product!I love Osea and after reading this, you will too!! Osea's products are free of parabens, GMOs, Fragrance, sulfates and animal byproducts. No animal testing ever needed either, because Osea uses only heavenly ingredients which are also biodegradable, and completely environmental friendly. Did you know that Osea uses uses USDA organic Algae in their products? This is GREAT, because algae can stabilize minerals that aid in skin moisturization, and studies have shown that algae/seaweed both have healing properties for acneic skin types without ever irritating the skin.
Ocean Cleanser as you might know already, a good cleanser is one that removes impurities and "cleanses" your skin. But a GREAT cleanser is one that also leaves your skin feeling moisturized, without having your natural skin's oil completely washed away. Osea's ocean cleanser does just that! Smooth and light on the skin, the cleanser works by removing dirt and impurities from your skin, while giving your skin the hydration it yearns for right after. I give it 5/5 stars *****. View the product HERE . Don't forget "Anooshkabeauty" saves you $.
Vitamin Boost this is the perfect excuse to spray heavenly goodness full of antioxidants and hydration to your skin, which is going to battle premature aging in the skin. It feels fresh and so hydrating. 3 of its ingredients (Pomegranate Extract, Red Wine Extract and Wild Gigartina Algae) all have high antioxidant levels, so imagine as if your spraying your cleansed skin with youthful ingredients that's sure to keep your skin healthy and hydrated all day. You can reapply throughout the day. I give it 5/5 stars *****. View the product HERE . Don't forget "Anooshkabeauty" saves you $.
Essential Hydrating Oil This oil can be applied multiple times a day. It gives you an instant hydrating glow. I also use this on my lips before I go to bed. It is a great way to keep your lips moisturized as well! 🙂 I give it 5/5 stars *****. View the product HERE. Don't forget "Anooshkabeauty" saves you $.
Atmospheric Protection Cream the name of this product says it all. To those ladies who want to prevent premature aging, or help plump up lines and wrinkles, I recommend this protection cream definitely. Using this on your last step in your skincare routine, you will notice a lightning/lifting feeling. I highly recommend you use this not only on your face but on your neck as well. I give it 5/5 stars *****. View the product HERE . Don't forget "Anooshkabeauty" saves you $.
Innersense Organic Hair System (coupon code included)
A good shampoo and conditioner should wash your hair, and condition it without giving you a toxic dose as conventional shampoo and conditioners do. Innersense products are free of Silicones, Resins, Parabens, Phthalates, so you'll be sure to be giving your hair and the scalp the right ingredients it needs to clean, hydrate, and grow. I've been using thePure Harmony shampoo and the Pure Inspiration conditioner and the for a month now, and I have definitely noticed a difference in hair texture as well as noticing that my hair has grown at least at least half an inch since I've been using these products. Since the ingredients are clean, you will notice no irritation if ingested or accidentally gone into the eyes. Also I always tell everyone that choosing to go natural is not just going to benefit you and your body, but the world and the environment as well. When you use a hair system that has no sulfates, paragons and toxic ingredients, you're also saving the marine animals as these chemicals get washed down to the ocean, potentially harming the animals and their habitat! I give this product 5 out of 5 stars ***** you can view the products here . Also don't forget the code "Anooshkabeauty" saves you 20% off on all your orders.
Metta Skincare Body Butter
Hmmmm! Opening this jar is like opening a bar of chocolate or cutting a piece of cake and drizzling it down with chocolate syrup and yummy goodness that I can't quiet describe right now. It may be due to the Cocoa or the coconut oil or a *secret* ingredient also known as "LOVE" that's in this jar, but let me tell you it smells divine! I can not get over the smell of this body butter, that alone deserves 5 stars, but let me tell you about the actual product:
I wish I could get the texture on camera and show you, because as soon as you pick it up, it is beyond smooth and it melts right on your skin. I use it on my legs and body after the shower. I highly recommend it for anyone who loves to be moisturized and smell like chocolate! View the product here . I give it 5 out of 5 stars *****.
Malaya Organic Moisturizing Body Oil (Citrus and Bloom)
This body oil is the result of combining 8 healing oils, herbs, flowers and vitamin E in a bottle. I love using it through out the day, but I also recommend using right after the shower. I really like the fact that it goes on really smooth and melts on the skin like butter on a hot pancake!
Once absorbed in your skin, it will work to give you a youthful skin and extreme hydration. That's why I give this oil a 5 out of 5 stars *****. View the product here .
Perfect for all skin types
This Company is Vegan, All-natural, Certified Organic / Non-GMO, and Eco-friendly.
I love this serum and although its only 1 Oz, it goes a really long way! It's got a gel-like texture, very soft to the touch and smells extremely amazing, just like cucumber and roses! You can definitely tell this product uses nothing other than natural oils and natural ingredients, because of how well it smells, and how it absorbs in to the skin. I give it 5/5 stars *****

This kit is perfect for anyone who is going out of town for a week or two. It comes with two skin butters (Basic Skin Butter + Ultimate Rose Butter ) plus a lip balm, a soap bar ( Face Soap ) and a spray based refresher ( Skin Refresher ).
The Basic Skin Butter (2 Oz) feels just like butter and smells earthy. The product felt a bit too oily for me but you can get used to it after a while. You can learn more about the ingredients used by clicking here. I give it 5/5 stars *****
The Ultimate Rose butter (1 Oz) is my favorite butter from this kit. It is so smooth and velvety, doesn't feel oily and smells great. I love essential oils and this butter uses rose essential oil. No matter what skin type you have, you'll be sure to benefit from this natural product. I recommend learning more about this product here. So interesting to learn that it takes 20 dozen organic Roses to distill enough oil for one jar! I give this 5/5 stars *****
If you like peppermint and spicy things, you will love the Lip Balm in this kit, It's got Argan and Peppermint and you can definitely feel and taste both of these ingredients. I give it 3/5 stars ***
The Face Soap is this cute little bar (about 1-3 Oz) and smells like Glycerine. In fact the ingredients are Glycerine, Tea Tree and Vitamin E. You would love this soap, with a shelf life of 3-4 weeks, when used twice a day. Love this bar soap and it smells amazing, and it's great to know that it's non-drying as well. Read more about it here. I give it 5/5 stars *****
The Skin Refresher (8 Oz) is my favorite and most used item from this kit. All you do is spray some on your face or body, the product uses rose blends and plant essences, so you'll be feeling refreshed in no time. You can purchase this product separately as well. You will love this! Click here to read more. (Notice: To prevent confusion, the product's picture has not been posted along with others, as it looks different from the kit. Refer to the picture of the kit). I give it 5/5 stars *****
The wait for a prebiotic skincare is over!
Have you ever wondered if there is any product on the market that uses probiotics? What does that mean?
Well by using this product you will help eliminate bad skin bacteria/bacterial colonies, ( i.e. acne), replacing your skin with good bacteria. That is because probiotics in this product leads to the growth of good bacteria, that's needed for healthy skin.
I definitely recommend ALL and ANY products from this line! I am not paid for this either, I just truly believe in this line and will be purchasing more products when I am done with my current bottle.
Currently I am using the IMMERSE prebiotic soothing body wash ( 16 oz) and I love how gentle it is. It once got in my eye and didn't cause pain, irritation or redness. It is really safe, and that's partly is because of the ingredients used.
Ingredients: Water, Coconut Oil, Aloe, Sea Salt, Kelp, Citric Acid, Glycerin (Plant Derived)
Vegan, organic and completely natural, these ingredients nourish your body, cleanse your skin, eliminate odor, and stabilize your pH levels. This is why I give this product 5/5 stars *****...highly recommended.
Au Naturale cosmetics: Lip Gloss and Organic Creme Highlighter
Finally I got to try Au Naturale's products, with much needed anticipation. I must say as an aunaturale myself, I could not wait to try this brand, and YES...we do have coincidentally almost the same name! (I just had to get that out there)
I am so grateful to have attended the "Green meets Glam" event in sunny San Diego on 11/5/15. Not only I got to meet the beautiful founder of Au Naturale: Ashley Prange, but also I was treated like a VIP with a goody bag full of organic goodies, including this highlighter and lip gloss. Talk about hitting the jackpot!
Lipgloss (10 ml)
The lip gloss is in the shade "Orchid", a beautiful shimmery lip gloss close to the color of figs. On me it almost looks like a nude to nude-purple, however it is a beautiful dark plum color, with just a touch of brown undertones. Creamy, non-sticky and moisturizing, this lip gloss brought hydration and satisfaction to my lips - ALL DAY! View this product here.
Can we please talk about that highlighter?
I love the texture of this product. Creamy, non-sticky, with the ability to be blended right with your foundation or BB cream. I love that it comes in a stick applicator, which makes it easy for me to roll on or even use the applicator to blend my highlight with the makeup. If you look at my swatch, you'll see that this highlighter has golden undertones, yet it doesn't look gold on the skin. I love how it blended right in to my skin, creating that beautiful glow, and I'm not even wearing a foundation!There is 7 grams of this goodness in this applicator, which is sure to last anyone a long time. Radiant illumination for days! View this product here.
ZUII Organic Lipsticks
I love Zuii Organic <3
They are an Australian based 100% certified organic and cruelty free/vegan brand, with a variety of products with such gorgeous range of shades. I had to get my hands (and lips) on their certified organic lipsticks and I purchased the Coral Red, which is a beautiful vibrant bright red color and Plum, which is a gorgeous dark purple.
As you use it on your lips, you can't help to notice how great they smell. I mean, they are made all from natural and essential oils only. Such clean products and beautiful colors. They have so many different products to choose from. I highly recommend this brand. I give this 5/5 stars *****

Eco Tan, Eco by Sonya's Coconut Deodorant: Review (Sells for $17.95)
AHHHH! Finally the wait for a great natural deodorant is OVER. I am so happy I found this product. I went deodorant-less for years after finding out that the use of conventional deodorant links to breast cancer. You can read the article here. I was so thrilled when I found out about this product through Instagram.
This product is ( 125 ml / 4.23 Oz ) and all you do is spray a little bit on your armpits, because a little goes a long way, and it truly does stay all day. It's like wearing perfume AND deodorant at the same time. I mean, this product smells great - just like coconuts. So if you love the smell, you'll rave about it to your friends, like I did. You can even share it with others, I mean, it is intended for the use of Unisex and of course no one will judge if you allow your coworker to get a spritz on as well. 😀 Order here. I give this 5/5 stars *****
Eco Tan, Invisible tan vs. Winter Skin Review
I definitely recommend the "Invisible tan" ($39.95 for 150 ml / 5.29 fl.oz.) to the left in this image. It's the perfect ONE TIME APPLICATION best suited for those with medium to olive skin tones.
It's completely natural and what I recommend to do is to slather it on your legs before going to bed, so you give it enough time to show itself by morning. It doesn't stain your sheets once you put it on either, nor gets you an orange color. I give it 5/5 stars ***** You can view the product here.
If you are a little fairer, I definitely recommend the "Winter skin" ($34.95 for 300 ml / 10.14 fl.oz.) to the right in this image, since it's a gradual tanner, you'll be able to control how much of a tan you get. Also can be used as a daily moisturizer which smells heavenly. I give it 5/5 stats ***** You can view the product here.
Eco By Sonya: Pink Himalayan Salt Scrub Review
(Sells for $39.95 - 175 ml / 5.9 fl.oz.)
The other day I was in the shower and finally decided to try the Pink Himalayan Scrub. It's funny because I actually use Himalayan Salt in my food and cooking purposes and never had thought about using it in skin care.
This salt is so divine. Since it's the purest form of salt in the world, it has tremendous amount of health benefits. (check out my post on Instagram: www.instagram.com/beautysecretsforall)
A good exfoliator is recommended to everyone, but not all exfoliators are created equal. Most products out there, scrub your skin's dead layer of cells and debris but fail to moisturize and hydrate the skin that must follow.
I was amazed at how well the pink salt in this scrub worked to exfoliate my skin, and the essential oils instantly moisturizing my skin, giving me the hydration feeling I yearned for after such a good scrub.
I highly recommend this scrub. Its a 5/5 stars ***** for me. You can view the product here.
Eco Tan Face Tan Water Review
(Sells for $29.95 - 100 ml / 3.38 fl.oz.)
I finally got my hands on Face Tan Water! At first I wasn't sure what it exactly is and what it does, but then I started using it and I fell in love.
The WAIT IS OVER! If you have been waiting for a natural non-comedogenic (meaning it won't clog pores), anti-aging toner, that delivers a sun-kissed glow, then you can stop looking. I recommend you apply this toner with cottons or with your dry clean fingers, over your face at night before going to bed. Using it feels so fresh and calming, and I immediately feel its freshness delivered to my skin. What toners do is that they balance out your skin tone working to brightening it, like a "toner".
I definitely recommend this brand to those with acne or whose skin is starting to age and form wrinkles. Because of the Vitamin C and anti-oxidants used in this toner, generally speaking, products formulated with Vitamin C and anti-oxidants help to diminish fine lines over a long period of time, while preventing new ones being made. Also your diet and lifestyle is important too.
I give it 4/5 **** but highly recommend it.
Give this a try. Buy this product here
VEGEAN, NATURAL, ECO-FRIENDLY AND CRUELTY-FREE HAIR DYE SYSTEM
The conventional hair coloring packages are loaded with Ammonia, Sodium Lauryl Sulfates and parabens, which make them toxic to your body and the environment. Many of these chemicals get washed out into the water bodies like the ocean and harm marine life. That's why I recommend a brand like Naturigin that uses no harmful chemicals to dye your hair.
They have many colors to chose from and all their hair colors come with a completed hair color system that consists of a shampoo and conditioner. This was actually my first time coloring my hair myself and I felt that the package was complete and directions were easy to follow. I chose color EBONY 2.3 and as you can see it did an amazing job of coloring all my hair, and not leaving a single strand behind. I will definitely be using this brand to color my hair from now on. I give it 5/5 *****

FULLY RAW ORGANIC ROSE CACAO BUTTER
AHHHHH! Love this RAW VEGAN, Organic, All-natural Body Butter by Kristina!
After having followed Kristina's FullyRaw Instagram account, I was really happy to learn that she is coming out with a line of skincare. This Rose Cacao butter is beyond amazing.
Not only smells like chocolates, but it feels great on the skin. It really has the right amount of oil and you're not left oily after having put it on your skin. Since it is made from all natural ingredients, you can eat it too! Yup! ALL EDIBLE...
Here are the ORGANIC ingredients: Cacao Butter, Extra Virgin Coconut Oil, Borage Oil, Tamanu Nut Oil, Rosehip Seed Oil, Kukui Nut Oil, Avocado Oil, Macadamia Nut Oil, Hazelnut Oil, Sunflower Oil, Rose Extract, Dark Chocolate Extract, Vanilla Extract, and love!
Another reason why I love this is because its is more than a body butter. You can use it as your lip balm, under eye treatment, body oil, moisturizing hand cream, eczema remedy, and more...
All around, a great product that not only smells great, but it is for multipurpose, it doesn't leave you oily; AND it is actually as natural as being edible!
Ayurveda suggests to not put anything on your skin, if it's not consumable, therefore this body butter gets a 5/5 ***** from me. Purchase here.
I love lipsticks. I could definitely go out with nothing on but beautiful bold lips.
Ingredients: Mango butter (organic), Castor seed oil (organic), Orange essential oil, Avocado oil (organic), Coconut oil (organic), Candelilla wax (organic), Grape seed oil (organic), Vitamin E oil and Mineral powder.
Axiology has a lot of colors when it comes to lipsticks, actually their only focus in on lipsticks! Carrying 18 beautiful shades of organic lipsticks ($28), you're sure to find the one you need. I love their informative website, because their lipstick shades are showcased on different skin colors, which is great because you're able to sort of see whether it looks good against a similar skin color as your own.
Everything from their lipstick to their packaging is eco-friendly and ethically made, with vegan ingredients and absolutely no palm oil whatsoever. As you might know Orangutans are becoming endangered due to habitat loss: deforestation of palm tress for palm oil. Axiology has stepped in and is trying to raise awareness of these beautiful creature that are on the edge of extinction, by not only making beautiful palm-oil free lipsticks, but also becoming supporters of the Orangutan foundation. 6% of the profits made on Axiology lipsticks goes to the wonderful foundation.
Best part about this line of lipstick is the packaging! The golden tube is so much fun to play with as you push the bottom and the tube springs out. I love the sound that it makes...
Now let's talk about the actual lipsticks:
The very first lipstick is called "Identity" which is a beautiful pale pink shade. I love the application of this lipstick however feel that it is at times too light and not enough color against my skin type. I give it 4/5 stars **** look for this color here.
The very next lipstick sent over for a review is "Dimension" which has become my favorite color. It is a nude, bronzy sort of shade and goes great with my skin color. I give this shade a 5/5 stars ***** look for it here.
Overall I recommend this line of lipsticks. They're made with natural ingredients, they are super moisturizing and don't chap your lips, providing a natural shade of color. Make sure you look for a shade that compliments your skin color.
Cool Sun-screen products
Vegan friendly, Cruelty-free, Recycle friendly and 100% Organic
Are you looking for an all-natural, cruelty-free, eco-friendly sunscreen products with vegan-friendly options? Then COOLA suncare products are for you. Whether you're looking for a spray based sunscreen to classic lotion like sunscreen, face serums, eye gel, makeup setting spray to even a lip balm with SPF, this brand is definitely for you.
I am reviewing this (3.0 Fl Oz / 88 ml) Unscented sunscreen spray with a SPF of 50 for today, however I am completely obsessed with anything from this brand, sold at COOLA online, and Sephora beauty stores.
We all need sunscreen daily! (yes we do). Why not opt for an easy application that is sure to hydrate your skin with its 70% organic ingredients, that stays on for about 80 minutes in sunshine OR rain, while infused with anti-aging anti-oxidants ingredients, that doesn't leave a funky smell behind? That is why I recommend this brand of sunscreen to anyone whether you have dry skin, or oily or combination. Best thing about this brand is that it doesn't contain Oxybenzone which is believed to be cancer-causing ingredient. This products uses active Avobenzone (Sunscreen) 3.0% - Octinoxate (Sunscreen) 7.5% and Octocrylene (Sunscreen) 10.0%.
Also because this product uses natural ingredients listed below, washing off the ingredients, will not harm the environment and the marine animals (after a dip in to the ocean for example).
(Inactive): Alcohol (ORGANIC), Algae (ORGANIC) Extract, Aloe Barbadensis (ORGANIC) Leaf Extract, Cucumis Sativus (ORGANIC Cucumber) Fruit Extract, Fragaria Vesca (ORGANIC Strawberry) Fruit Extract, Glycerin (ORGANIC), VA/Butyl Maleate/Isobornyl Acrylate Copolymer, Water
(Active): Alcohol Algae Extract - Cucumber Fruit Extract and Strawberry Fruit Extract. I give this product 5/5 stars *****
