First post of 2016, I wanted it to be about something am passionate about. Lol!. Am so passionate about shopping on iHerb :D. This haul is from Aug 2015. Here are the things I bought :

iHerb1

1) Premium Black Cumin seed oil by Amazing Herbs – I have done an entire post on the benefits of black cumin seed oil before. It’s miraculous. This time, I bought 4 bottles for my father & uncle, because both of them suffers from back and leg pain. External application of this oil reduced their pain so much that they asked me to order more.

They all came individually packed this time. I recently received an email from someone asking me if this oil could help alleviate his mom’s cancer and I said definitely give this oil a try. When researching this product, I read that it can cure cancer if it’s in the initial stage. It’s that powerful.

Price : $19.49 (AED 71.59) per bottle, each containing 236 ml. iHerb’s price for this product is 35% lesser than it’s market price.

2 & 3) I haven’t really delved into the world of loose leaf teas. However, during August, Just A Leaf Organic teas had a massive sale going on. All their teas were priced at just a dollar each!. I got the following two tins :

China Rose Infused Black tea – This tea contains organic black tea leaves, organic red rose petals & natural essence of rose. It has a really refreshing taste and the scent of roses is truly invigorating. Love it. The pieces of rose petals are so nice to taste in between the sips of this lovely tea.

Price : $10.22 (AED 37.54) for a tin containing 99 gms. But I got it for $1 (AED 3.67)!

Bergamot Grey tea – This tea contains organic black tea leaves & organic essence of Bergamot. I chose this tea mainly because I have found that I like any perfume that has bergamot listed in one of it’s notes. It has a nice citrussy smell & a very strong, spice like taste.

iHerb6

Price : $9.45 (AED 34.71) for a tin containing 99 gms. But I got it for $1 (AED 3.67)!

Currently all Just A Leaf organic teas that iHerb stocks are those which comes in sealed packs. Tin packaging has been discontinued. That’s why I haven’t listed the direct links to these two products here.

4) Hand cream with Argan nut oil by Madre Labs– Before checking out after placing all products in my cart, I always check the Trials section, which lists trial sized products and also full sized products at an amazingly discounted price. This time, I saw this hand cream by Madre Labs, which is unscented & full sized.

iHerb7

It’s key ingredients are oils of Argan nut, jojoba, sesame, avocado, olive and coconut plus shea butter. It contains no parabens. It’s a thick white cream. It’s very moisturizing. One advice I gotta give is to work with a pea sized amount only. More the amount of cream, the more it keeps spreading & the more you have to rub it into the skin to get it absorbed. But with a smaller amount, it gets easily absorbed. Also, though it says ‘unscented’, it has the faintest scent of Argan oil.

iHerb8

Price : $7.95 (AED 29.20) for a tube containing 71 gms. However, I got it for a trial price of only $0.10 (AED 0.37)!

Currently in Jan 2016, this product is still listed in the Trials section at $0.10. Definitely give it a try!

Discounts & Shipping

During August, iHerb had a VIP discount going on. Depending on your bill total different percentages of discounts were being given. Since my bill total was $60+, I received the highest discount of 10% :). My shipping charge came to $11.01 (AED 40.44). It reached in UAE from US, via DHL, in 3 days. Love how fast their shipping always is ♡

Use my code SCZ695 at check out to receive an instant discount of $5 from your bill total.

  1. wow,their shipping is so quick!!!! here in India, the customs charge extra fees and most times, it surpasses the product and shipping fee. else i would have ordered so many things from them especially after seeing your haul posts. Happy new year, Naznin

    • Hey Pras!. Seeing you here after so long!. Happy new year. Hope all is well with you. It ships equally fast to India too but unfortunately there is customs fees..

      • Yes, I’ve been absent from blog space since November. Barely been able to keep up with things. And now down with the flu which I’m recovering from. Yes, customs charge so much more than the package value and it’s such a big bummer that they rip open everything and even keep somethings for themselves.
        hope all is great your side too 🙂 Happy New year

        • Yes, I did notice that you don’t post anymore. Hope you get well soon. It’s this cold weather.. Everything is going well here =).. Hope you get back to blogging soon ♡

  2. hi naznin 1st time im posting here. i stay in ajman. i would like to know if i order from iherb.com how much would be the shipping charge ?
    hope u reply me 🙂

    • Hi Shehnaz!. Thanks for posting. If your bill total is over $40, your shipping charge will be $8. If it’s below $40, it will most probably be $13.26 or more (if the products you order are heavy, shipping charge will become more). Also if you are shopping before Jan 18th, you will get a 10% discount, if your bill total is $40+. You will get a guaranteed $5 off with my code SCZ695. If you have any doubts while shopping there, just let me know. I will reply 🙂

  4. Hello Naz…Gorgeous haul… I must try the black seed oil…I just keep putting it off for some reason… I’ve seen the same hand cream always on discount..Wonder Y…

    • Thank you, Irene!. Yeah Black seed oil is such a blessing. Definitely try it out. Madre Labs is one of iHerb’s House Brands. Probably that’s why it’s on discount often.
