Hi everyone! If you've never heard of iherb.com, get onto their site ASAP! For those of you who do know about it, you'll know that it can become quite addictive - bargains left, right and centre and so many random things to buy. Not only that, their shipping is super fast. I ordered on a Monday night and I had my order my Thursday! I went online as I heard they had 20% off Real Techniques brushes at the time but I ended up purchasing a few extra things as well...
Real Techniques Duo-Fiber Collection (limited edition) US$16
Thayers Rose Petal Witch Hazel US$8.60
Heather's Tummy Care Peppermint Oil capsules US$10.22
Real Technique Brushes
I have been wanting to invest in a contour brush and RT is my go-to brand when I need new brushes. And the place to buy them from is iherb, as their prices are usually much better than what you'll see at Priceline. I haven't used this yet but I'm sure I won't be disappointed.
Thayers Witch Hazel
I've never been one to use toner - I'm lazy and in the past, toners have always dried out my skin and made it feel tight. I read some rave reviews on Makeup Alley and that's why it ended up in my cart. So far, so good! It is very gentle and not at all drying on the skin. In fact, I even forgot to moisturise afterwards one night because my skin felt refreshed and soft. It does smell fairly strongly of rose petals but I think it smells pleasant. If you've had issues with toners causing dryness, I'd give this one a go - it's alcohol free and the rose petals are said to be moisturising.
Heather's Tummy Care
If you're an unfortunate soul like myself who suffers with IBS, you'll know how annoying it can be. I've had quite bad bloating and cramps lately so I thought I would try this. Peppermint oil is an anti-spasmodic which reduces muscle spasms and cramping. This also contains a few additional soothing ingredients such as ginger and fennel oil. I haven't tried this yet because I've had heartburn intermittently for a few days, but I am hoping this will help my tummy.
St. Dalfour Organic Strawberry Rose Tea US $3.32
The Seaweed Bath Co. Foot Butter US $4.99
Cococare Cocoa Butter Lip Balm US $1.50
St. Dalfour tea
I love tea! Especially rosey flavoured ones. Strawberries are my favourite fruit, so of course I had to try this. It is delicious, and organic too!
The Seaweed Bath Co. Foot Butter
What an interesting concept - it looks like one of those solid deodorant sticks. This is actually really handy because you don't have to use your hands in the process - just rub all over! It smells like a mix of cocoa butter with peppermint. I have been using this after my night time shower and then popping socks on before jumping into bed. Pretty pleased with it so far.
Cococare Lip Butter
I bought this because I wanted to make my cart up to $40 to get free shipping. Nothing particularly special, it is fairly moisturing, smells okay and that's about it.
So that was my haul for this month.
