iHerb Haul October 2015: DHL Express not so express this time

LOL at the title. It sounded as if I’m about to go on a rampage on DHL Express which was not as express as my previous hauls. Could it be because of the $8 flat rate promotion or change of policy? I have no idea. All I care now is how relieved I am that my parcel arrived on Saturday morning, after 7 days of travelling. Lucky box.

Here is my small iHerb haul. I was thinking to go amok with iHerb this time, taking advantage of the flat $8 DHL Express shipping which ends on 31st October. I did. I put everything in the shopping cart and cut the list down to this extend 😛 . I never haul a lot with iHerb to avoid tax. That explains why all my iHerb haul is in a small quantity. Unless everything is free then I will make sure my haul totals up to RM499!

I was thinking to drive down to Publika to get a Real Techniques Stippling Brush as it’s cheaper at Ben’s Independent Grocer (RM38). At the same time I was keeping an eye on iHerb for the weekly 20% special. Just when I was about to place my order for something else, voilà! The weekly special refreshed and my wish came true. All Real Techniques brushes was on 20% discount. I bought a Real Techniques Stippling Brush (RM34.16 after 20% OFF) and grabbed the new Real Techniques Deep Cleansing Gel (RM30.74 after 20% OFF) for review.

I love the Clearance section at iHerb. I saw a bunch of E.L.F. makeup I want. Most of it are already sold out so I ended up with three items. There should be more but I cut them all out. It’s the matter of need vs want. I chose need.

E.L.F. Long-Lasting Lustrous Eyeshadow #Soiree (RM10) was on Clearance, E.L.F. Long-Lasting Lustrous Eyeshadow #Toast (RM12.82) is not. The price difference is not a lot so why not. Another eyeshadow on sale that I really wanted is the E.L.F. Pressed Mineral Eyeshadow #What’s Your Name? (RM10). I was thinking to grab all Pressed Mineral Eyeshadow that are on sale but it’s more of a want than need.

I grabbed a box of Nestle Hot Cocoa Mix Rich Milk Chocolate Flavor (RM8.55) for a dear friend. This friend has been sending me a lot of stuff so I bought this as a part of a parcel that I’m going to send to her. If you are reading this and receive this in a few days time, yes it’s for you 🙂

The next item is rather random. It’s the kind of thing that you don’t need but it’s so darn cheap that you will regret if you don’t buy it. One thing you must know about iHerb is that their Trial items or ad hoc special items changes all the time. Just when I was about to check out (a few days after that), this Sierra Bees Organic Lip Balms Variety Pack (RM4.27) appeared on the page I was on. A pack of these lip balms is just RM4.27! I am currently using the cocoa butter version and it is really good. So I bought this pack. The price is seriously too good to pass 😛 . Why not, right? Why not.

This time I did not drive to DHL delivery facility in Shah Alam to collect my parcel. It wasn’t an urgent one so I just let DHL send it to me using PosLaju. Thank goodness last Saturday was not the first Saturday of the month otherwise I would have to wait until Monday. I was not worried that I will get tax by the custom as the haul amount is within RM100++. However this time round I do get a stack of documents including an official receipt from Jabatan Kastam Diraja Malaysia on the tax. The amount stated on the receipt is RM0 as the haul amount was lower than RM500 and there wasn’t anything hazardous. Initially I was thinking to get a pack of chia seed for my smoothie. I saw the disclaimer on the product page stating delivery might be delayed due to custom clearance on chia seed so I decided not to get it.

  • Hi Fiona!
    Many many thanks for the Hot Chocolate and Sierra Bees lip balm 🙂
    Really kind and thoughtful of you, dear!
    Puts me in a Chrismassy mood right away with the hot chocolate… heeee! 😀
    Am enjoying a cup of it as I’m typing this right now!
    So “gum-doong” (touched) by your kind gesture, dear! Muakksssssss!

    • Hehe finally you spot this post 😛 . The last time I wanted to order the hot chocolate it was out of stock. This time I remember to order 🙂 . Hope the lip balm is good for you as I remember you mention some lip balm is good at the beginning then it went blah. So far this brand did not disappoint. Doesn’t feel heavy on my lip as well.
      Aiyoh small matter only compared to what you did for you all these years. Not forgetting all the surprise parcel!

      • Aiyo… u too hak-hey la dear…
        Small small gesture on my part only…
        Feel so loved by your thoughtfulness 😀

  • Nice haul as usual. I can always rely on your review on iHerb. It’s always very detail

    • Thanks 😉 . Hehe! I’m a huge fan of iHerb 😛
