Here is another haul from my absolutely favorite shopping site, iHerb. Unlike my previous iHerb hauls, this one won’t have mini reviews, since I placed this order for my brother and sister in law. However, since I suggested these products for them, I will be writing more about why I decided to choose these products.
Click the above picture to add all four products to your shopping cart in one click.
1) Certified Organic Shea Butter by Now Foods – Shea Butter has a rich, luxurious texture that penetrates deep to condition and moisturize every type of skin. It is a wonderful emollient that’s perfect for daily use. It can also be used as a scalp moisturizer. My SIL told me it has a hard texture. However, it melts when rubbed between the palms. This is a lovely product that gives intense nourishment and hydration to even the driest of skin types.
Price : $9.93 (AED 36.47) for a tub containing 207 ml. iHerb’s price for this product is 24% lesser than the market value!.
2) Certified Organic Jojoba oil by Now Foods – This is my SIL’s favorite oil. She once bought this from iHerb itself and this is her second bottle. This is great for usage on both skin & hair.
Price : $9.93 (AED 36.47) for a bottle containing 118 ml. iHerb’s price for this product is 34% lesser than the market value!.
3) Apricot oil by Now Foods – Apricot oil is the oil derived from apricot kernels, that will naturally nourish and moisturize your skin. Rich in essential fatty acids, this gentle oil has excellent restorative properties. I suggested this to my SIL because just like Jojoba oil, this is a multi purpose oil. It can be used to soften fine lines & restore a healthy glow to the skin while also bringing radiance to the hair. I have actually placed an order for this very same bottle for myself, but that will be shown in another haul post :).
Price : $3.18 (AED 11.68) for a bottle containing 118 ml. iHerb’s price for this product is 36% lesser than the market value!.
4) Lift & Firm Cream with Hyaluronic DMAE by Andalou Naturals – Recently my brother suffered from a really bad sun burn. He asked me to look for a cream that is hydrating but at the same time non – greasy. I searched high and low and finally found this cream which fit the bill perfectly!. It has Hyaluronic acid in it that gives intense hydration. This product contains age defying, fruit stem cells. Also, Andalou Naturals is a crueltyfree / vegan brand. After using it, my brother said that he hasn’t used anything like it before and that it really is an awesome product. Since I have normal / dry skin, I’ve added this cream to my wishlist for a future purchase.
Price : $19.96 (AED 73.30) for a tub containing 50 ml. iHerb’s price for this product is 20% lesser than the market value!.
Discounts Received & Shipping
I placed this order on Oct 6th. At that time, iHerb had the offers of $8 shipping fee via DHL and 5% discount for every order above $40. So, I was able to avail both offers. The 5% discount came to $2.15 (AED 7.90). Shipping fee was $8 (AED 29.38), which is great value. Within 4 hours of placing the order, I received an email saying it’s shipped!. In 4 days, it reached my brother’s office in Abu Dhabi from US. Also, along with the order, iHerb sometimes keeps freebies and this time it’s a cute green and white cloth pin.
FYI : From now until Oct 31st 2015, iHerb is offering a flat shipping fee of $8 via DHL, $6 via Premium Airmail & $4 via Regular Post, irrespective of the bill total amount!. Usually you get the best shipping price only when the bill total is $40 or above. It’s a great offer and you should definitely take advantage of it.
Also, if you are in UAE and wondering if you can order from iHerb, the solution is to ask someone else in another country to place the order for you but give the delivery address in UAE. That way you will still get your favorite products to your doorsteps.. I placed this order from India and got it delivered in Abu Dhabi.
