Here are my purchases:
It’s a rather small haul this time.
I decided to try some of their beauty products sold over at iHerb knowing that it is perhaps more ‘natural’ than other drugstore beauty products, using lesser preservatives. I was looking for an eye cream to hydrate the skin area around my eyes which would hopefully, iron out the lines around my eye area. I bought the most highly reviewed and popular eye products.
Reviva Labs, Eye Complex Firming Cream, 3/4 oz (21 g)
The cream texture is light but I use it sparingly because it’s cream-based and rather thick.
It’s paraben-free and contains mainly plant-based ingredients.
Bee Naturals, Queen Bee, Peeper Keeper Eye Balm, 0.8 oz
Simply Organic, Madagascar Pure Vanilla Extract, Farm Grown , 4 fl oz (118 ml)
This is great for making raw food desserts but the vanilla taste is not as strong or distinct as compared to those artificial vanilla essence sold in the supermarket. The taste is more raw and natural.
Artisana, 100% Organic Raw Coconut Butter, 16 oz (454 g)
This is one of the best substitute over pure butter because the nutty flavour is really fragrant. It goes well with crackers and can be used in making raw vegan desserts like raw cheesecake.
Y.S. Eco Bee Farms, Raw Honey, 22.0 oz (623 g)
Raw honey tasted very different from the processed and clear typed of honey. It’s less sugary and contains more enzymes, minerals and antioxidants than the commercial regular honey. In fact, the cloudier the honey look, the better it is as it contains more of the fragments of the bee pollen and honeycomb bits.
Bigelow, Vanilla Caramel, 20 Tea Bags, 1.82 oz (51 g)
This tea didn’t taste as sweet or fragrant as I imagine it to be. I wouldn’t buy this again.
St. Dalfour, Organic, Golden Mango Green Tea, 25 Tea Bags, 1.75 oz (50 g)
This is the most popular tea sold at iHerb but I didn’t quite like the taste of the bitter green tea leaves in it. I rather stick to fresh mangos.
Nutiva, Organic Chia Seed, Black, 12 oz (340 g)
Naturade, Total Soy, Meal Replacement, Chocolate, 19.05 oz (540 g)
It’s my first time trying chocolate meal replacement shake and it’s a great protein or after gym shake especially when you lack the time to prepare meals for yourself. This drink will keep you partially full. I would usually blend it with some oats and banana to add bulk into the shake.
