iHerb Haul

It was only after the iPhone 3 was released that it became hugely popular in the Middle East. Everything about the iPhone was all the rage.. The screen size, the model, the functionality and even the name “iPhone’… It became so popular that even for a while I considered signing of as iRene…Now why was I blabbering so much… Cause this time I was shopping from iHerb….(totally unrelated right???)

For those of you’ll who don’t know iHerb it is a site that contains more skincare and less of makeup. The skincare that you find at iHerb are more of the natural oils and organic brands. I’m always eyeing their oils and you can find practically any oil under the sun like Argan oil, Jojoba oil, Rose oil, Lavender oil and on goes the list... They ship worldwide at reasonable rates. And something I was dying to try out was available there --- Real Techniques brushes!! 

I ordered on 28/10/2013 and received the package on 31/10/2013 via DHL Express which is the fastest delivery I've ever seen.. So hats off to the iHerb team... So let’s get cracking…

1) Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge - $5.99 (Always wanted to get the Beauty Blender but kept putting it off cause of the price.. YouTube reviews mentioned that this sponge was supposedly better).. Click here for full review..

2) Real Techniques Your Base/Flawless Expert Face Brush - $8.99 (Most popular of the brush collection) 

3) Real Techniques Your Finish/Perfected Blush Brush - $8.99 

4) Real Techniques Your Finish/Perfected Stippling Brush - $9.99 


5) Now Foods Solutions Avocado Oil 4 fl oz (118 ml) - $5.34 - I tried to find avocado oil here but failed.. If anyone knows where I can find it do comment below... It is supposedly a highly moisturizing oil rich in anti oxidants and sterolin which can facilitate softening of the skin and reduce the incidence of age spots. Also it is used for the treatment of many skin conditions.

6) Desert Essence Lip Rescue Ultra Hydrating with Shea Butter 4.25 g - $1.68
7) Sierra Bees Organic Pomegranate Beeswax Lip Balm with Vitamin E 4.25 g - Free!! 

So guys I’m really happy with the service of iHerb and suggest that you go check them out right away… And here’s a bonus when you purchase from iHerb use the coupon code RJC211 on your first order to get a discount of $10!!!!


Take Care n God bless….
