iHerb Haul #7 – Skincare products!

Holla!

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.

Use the code SCZ695 at checkout to receive upto $10 off your first transaction with them!

Love Your Skin This Valentine’s Day with Izil!

Valentine’s Day is right around the corner, which means stuffed animals, chocolate hearts and red roses everywhere you turn. Valentine’s Day gives us a chance to step back from our busy lives and take a moment to remember what’s important. It is true that we should love and be kind to our family and friends every day, but sometimes we need that reason to go above and beyond and tell them how we really feel.

Beyond loving each other, it’s a time to remember to love ourselves and make the most of the opportunity to pamper ourselves and commit to treating our bodies and skin to healthy nurturing ingredients.

As you prepare for a night out with your valentine, you may start to feel the added pressure to look your best, and so here’s Izil Natural Argan Beauty’s tips for looking your very best this Valentine’s Day with their natural argan oil products:

L – Lather your skin with “quality.” Beldi Black Moroccan Soap (AED 69) is a detoxifying and purifying body soap for silky soft skin. 100% Natural, the “beldi black” soap prepares the skin for exfoliation. Made from virgin black olive oil and enriched with Argan oil and Eucalyptus essential oil, this natural therapeutic soap is a great exfoliator and moisturizer. It is rich in vitamin E and minerals helping clean and detoxify your skin by removing dead cells and toxins, while leaving an extraordinarily smooth and silky finish. The Eucalyptus oil helps relax your body and add the soap antiseptic and anti-inflammatory properties. Your skin is revitalized, free of impurities and hydrated with a soft touch.

O – Oils. Multi-Purpose 100% Pure Argan Oil (AED 180) is perfect to use on the face for anti-aging, the body for dryness, to help reduce blemishes and stretch marks and also for repairing damaged hair.

V– Vitamins. You’ve been told how important it is to get our daily dosage of vitamins for your insides, but what about your outside? Vitamins are excellent for your skin. The Green Tea Anti-oxidant mask (AED 140) is very rich in trace minerals and vitamins A, B and E that absorb impurities and inhibit breakdown of Collagen that is responsible for keeping the skin firm and elastic. It contains White Clay; a natural cleansing mineral clay that gently draws impurities from the skin without removing natural oils while simultaneously exfoliating, cleansing, and stimulating circulation. It is also packed with Green tea and Argan Oil, which have potent anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties, and are rich and nutritive. This powerful antioxidant combination reduces inflammation, promotes more even skin tone and improves skin health. It also helps remove bacteria, toxins, excess oil and dead cells that can clog skin and result in enlarged pores.

E– Exfoliate. The Green Tea Body Scrub (AED 115) is perfect for pre-date body exfoliation. This unique and natural scrub utilizes actual Green Tea leaves to get rid of dead skin while protecting the fresh layer of skin cells beneath from free radicals. Using Green Tea leaves coated in Argan and Aloe Vera, this body scrub allows for the gentle and smooth removal of dead skin, giving you a silkier, more youthful looking complexion and primed for moisturization. Your skin is smooth with a beaming glow and a pleasant fresh scent.
