I love trying organic and natural skincare and sharing them with my audience. I was thrilled when I was gifted Shya Monet Nature’s Anti-Aging Collection for testing purposes.
Why do I love this brand? The ingredients are not only natural and organic, but nontoxic, and they actually help your skin! Furthermore, they are Vegan, cruelty free, Paraben Free, Chemical Free, Made in America and Petroleum Free. So it’s also good for people with sensitive skin or rosacea.
Watch me demo the entire line!
The Antiaging Foaming Face Cleanser
This smells amazing! I was immediately greeted with the aroma of blackberries, which is something I don’t usually come across in skincare products, but I love that they use cold pressed and extracted liquid aroma from organic fruits. They are never heated so you do not lose the nutrients nor the true fruity aroma of the fruit without fragrance or synthetics, so it’s safe enough for pregnant moms.
It also contains organic coconut oil soap, which cleanses deep within the pores to eliminate bacteria and makeup buildup. It is gentle on your skin, so you don’t have to pull or tug on your face to cleanse it. The organic Argan oil in it helps to hydrate and nourish the skin thanks to its vitamin E healing properties. Overall, this facial cleanser has Vitamins A, B, C, E, F, K, omega 3, omega 6, amino acids, proteins, and minerals that help to cleanse and nourish the skin.
Organic green tea
Green tea has a lot of antioxidants that benefits the body in many ways and can even be used to treat acne. It’s one of the most natural ways to help your skin appear brighter and flawless. It flushes out toxins from the skin, helps heal blemishes and soothes the complexion. Green tea contains catechins, which are anti-bacterial agents that suppress acne-causing bacteria and help regulate hormonal imbalances. It also possesses potent anti-inflammatory properties that help reduce redness and inflammation. It also stops the signs of premature aging – like loose skin, wrinkles, age spots and fine lines – while making the complexion more moist and supple. I contains high level of oligomeric proanthocyanidins – OPCs – some of the most powerful antioxidants known to scientists. These antioxidants help ward off premature aging by fighting free radicals and healing damaged cells.

From taming frizz to moisturizing dry skin, this natural ingredient has a wide range of beauty-boosting properties. Rich in many vitamins and nutrients such as Vitamin E which is essential for healthy skin. Coconut oil is rich in many proteins. These proteins keep skin healthy and rejuvenated.

Cold pressed and extracted liquid aroma from organic fruits. They are never heated so you do not lose the nutrients nor the true fruity aroma of the fruit. Each scent smells like the freshest ripe fruit. Nothing comes closer. No fragrance or synthetics. Pure fruit aroma.
Organic argan oil
Often called ‘liquid gold’, argan oil is an organic product extracted from the kernels of the argan tree which is native to Morocco. It is extremely rich in beneficial nutrients including fatty acids and vitamin E. Its properties make it particularly beneficial for the skin.
Not only does argan oil act as an effective moisturizer, it can also give skin a youthful glow and reduce the visibility of wrinkles. Its anti-oxidant effect makes argan oil the ideal anti-aging product. It restores elasticity and leaves skin feeling plumper and softer. It’s deep hydration properties leave dry dull skin in the past and renew the skin with a dewy glow of hydration that reflects a more youthful appearance. It also works wonders on blemished skin for that crystal clear complexion.
Organic apple cider vinegar
ACV contains powerful alpha hydroxy acids to help remove dead skin cells and reveal a fresher and healthier complexion underneath them. During the creation of ACV, substances such as malic acid are formed, which give ACV antibacterial, anti-fungal and antiviral properties which help prevent acne and skin infections.
ACV’s natural goodness also unblocks pores and allows skin to breathe properly, so it is very effective in treating acne and pimples.
AVC doesn’t just effectively remove excess oil from your skin, it also helps to balance pH levels and can prevent your skin from becoming too oily or too dry by balancing the production of sebum.
When I used the cleanser, I noticed that I only needed 1 pump and it did not irritate my skin at all. It removed any makeup or sunscreen I had on and my face felt refreshed and hydrated after using it.
The Anti-Aging Firming Serum
organic Argan Oil, organic blackberry extract, raw apple cider vinegar with the mother, all of which help to rejuvenate the skin due to their valuable anti-aging and repairing properties.
This serum felt a little oily, but not greasy. It had the lovely blackberry aroma and was not irritating at all. My face felt supple and smooth afterwards, and I noticed my skin actually did feel firmer after using it for a week.
The Anti-Aging Firming Eye Cream
This eye cream is very soft and I only needed half a pump for both eyes. The bottle is pretty big, so it should last a few months at least. The trick is to apply it with you ring fingers because they are the weakest, and you want to apply the least amount of pressure to the delicate eye area. Also, apply it to the brow bone and eye socket bone area, not directly next to your eye. This will help to prevent clogged pores around your eyes or from the product getting into your eyes. Use this every morning and night.

What makes Shea butter an extraordinary skin care and an amazing body healer is its richness in precious constituents, which include unsaturated fats with a large proportion of “unsaponifiables” components, essential fatty acids, phytosterols, vitamin E and D, provitamin A and allantoin. All these are natural and make Shea butter a superfood for your skin and hair. Shea butter is one of the best moisturizing, anti-aging regenerating and protecting natural product in the World! It protects your skin from UV sunlight, harsh climate, dehydration and pollution damages. Let’s say in short that it is one of the best anti-aging agents for you skin.

Organic Sunflower Oil
The most common cause of acne is the excessive production of sebum by sebaceous glands. When the oil gets blocked and infected by bacteria, acne is almost an inevitable condition. Sunflower oil helps to create a protective layer that prevents bacteria from making direct contact with your skin thus it prevents the infection. This oil has vitamin E and essential fatty acids, so it does not only protect but also nourishes your facial skin. Free radicals may also trigger the appearance of signs of aging such as wrinkles and fine lines on the face, sunflower oil will help to protect elastin and collagen, maintaining healthy and younger looking skin. The anti-inflammatory benefits of sunflower oil for skin is evidently strong as the oil is high in Omega-6 (linoleic) fatty acid along with Vitamin E. The center also says that Omega-6 enhances the developing of new skin cells. Thus, sunflower oil for skin care ensures constantly rejuvenated and even skin surface.
Unrefined Sesame Oil
Seasame oil is highly nutritious and lubricating, since it is enriched with essential vitamins like E, B complex, D and minerals like calcium, phosphorus and some proteins that helps in the strengthening and repairing skin. Presence of fatty acids along with linoleic acid makes them an effective moisturizer for skin and to reduce scars and in the treatment of inflamed and wounded skin.
Virgin Olive Oil
Olive oil contains three major antioxidants: vitamin E, polyphenols, and phytosterols.Antioxidants, when topically applied, may help protect the skin from premature skin aging. Vitamin E partly accounts for the anti-aging benefits of olive oil because it helps restore skin smoothness and protects against ultraviolet light.  Hydroxytyrosol, a rather rare compound found in olive oil, also prevents free radical damage to the skin. Unlike commercial moisturizers that can clog pores and exacerbate current skin conditions, olive oil penetrates deeply into the skin while providing a cleansing effect.
This moisturizer if very thick and a little goes a long way. If feels silky and leaves my skin feeling soft and nourished all day long, even after a 2 hour workout and an 8 hour work day!
