Right before Chinese New Year, I was casually browsing iHerb like every morning and I spotted a bunch of new ELF products listed in. Normally I like to just check out the New Products section but someone these new ELF products were not listed in the New section. Hmmpphh!
Last week was the EcoTools 20% OFF weekly promotion deal on iHerb and I have to get something. Picking what I want to buy and checking out this time around is so much faster and easier. No idea why. Probably because I have not been hauling anything from iHerb for the past few months. One thing for sure is that I am itching to get something from iHerb for quite some time. I also notice that their weekly promotion for beauty brands has slowed down for quite a bit. So when I stumbled upon one, it is shopping time.
Last month, iHerb sent a friendly reminder email reminding me that I have some credit in my account from previous purchase that are expiring in 24 hours. I got panic and quickly login to my iHerb account
praying hoping I would find something to buy. After what seems to be an intense browsing for two hours, I finally found something I want.
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 believe you have heard about Garcinia before as there was a point of time where lots of spam advertisement appeared on Facebook timeline. That was when I knew about Garcinia too. So sometime towards end of 2014, I saw this California Gold Nutrition Garcinia 30 caps on the Trial section for USD1 and I just had to try it to see what’s the hype. I did not try it until a few weeks ago, which explains this Garcinia haul.
My parcel reached me on the same day as the estimated delivery date. Well, actually I went to DHL delivery facility to collect the parcel myself since my area is classified as non-delivery area and they will need to Poslaju to me.
I’ve always known of Bdellium Tools in iHerb because I stumbled upon the brand when I was searching for blending brushes last year. Bdellium Tools Studio Line, if you know Bdellium well, is the most well-known brush line due to it’s striking and unique yellow handle. I’m not a fan of yellow. I cannot see myself using yellow brushes and I didn’t know what Bdellium Tools brand is all about. When I watched CoffeeBreakwithDani haul on Bdellium Tools, I WANT THEM. I do not care if it’s yellow. It was her repurchase as spare brushes so I knew these brushes must be good. I guess luck was on my side because iHerb had a weekly 20% special on Bdellium Tools! I hauled back six Bdellium Tools Pink Bambu Series last week and this is what I think about Bdellium Tools brushes so far.
I have a lot of face brushes including a few new Zoeva brushes which are still sitting in the box comfortably so my purchase was mainly on the eye brushes. Having said that, I’m also on the lookout for a dupe of my most favourite powder brush of all – the Real Techniques Buffing Brush, which is not available to purchase individually. I thought I’ve found the perfect dupe a few months ago with ELF Studio Powder Brush but it was not quite the same. Needless to say, that brush’s ferrule came off from the handle and I’ve repurchased a new one, which is still sitting in the drawer because I want to find one similar to Real Techniques Buffing Brush before breaking into the new ELF Studio Powder Brush.
