iHerb mega haul – part 3

Guys!

Yes, it is I, I am back! I have to apologize for that very rude and long absence. It was the end of the school year, summer was here and I just felt like “let’s pause the blog”. And that’s what I did. For 3 months. Yeah. The blog is my leisure space. So when I’m not busy studying, I don’t feel the need to come here. It was natural for me to stop it just like this. But now that I think about it, it wasn’t respectful to you, the readers. So, yes, I apologize.

I don’t know yet if I’ll make a break every summer, we’ll see about that later. For the moment, we need to end my first iHerb adventure, right? But don’t worry eh. To your dismay, I’m became addicted to this website, you’re going to hear a looot about it over here.

So today, I’m talking about balms and food. There’s absolutely no link between them, don’t try to understand, it’s vain.

Kuumba Made, Herbal Healing Salve, 1 oz (28.3 g) – $6.80

Boyfriend has a cat. And this cat loves me. His name is Mortimer and he’s very affective. So that he scratches to blood. Yeah, how cute is that. This is pretty much the reason why I bought this healing salve. And also because I’m extraordinarily goofy. I think it works quite well. I walked bare feet on a bout of glass the other day (that’s my risky gangsta girl life yo), I applied this salve and the cut seemed to heal faster. Also it works very well on moskito piqure or spider bite, on the cuticles and on my skin irritations. My mom uses it for her very dry and itchy feet and it relives her somehow. She asked me to buy her 3 jars of this little thing.
It’s like the Mac Gyver of the salves.

Kuumba Made, Scar Repair, 1 oz (28.3 g) – $6.80

I also bought the scar repair salve. I have a few scars because of Mortimer on my left hand and a spot scar on my right cheek. I’ve been applying this everyday for a week. I didn’t see much difference. I guess it’s slightly better. I don’t know. But it smells good, it’s a little fresher than the healing salve.

Badger Company, Foot Balm, Peppermint & Tea Tree, 2 oz (56 g) – $8.99

Haa Badger Company. I wanted to try one of their balms for quite a while. Now it’s done! I took the foot balm, because there’s peppermint in it. I’m fond of peppermint. I use the balm also on my cuticules or the dry skin areas of my body, not only on my feet. It works well. Plus, it’s natural and organic. My only disappointment is that it doesn’t have a cooling effect.

Inka Crops, Inka Corn, Roasted Giant Corn, Chile Picante, 4 oz (113.4 g) – $1.71

I LOVE THIS STUFF. It’s roasted giant corns, seasoned with a spicy blend. It’s absolutely fantastic. Ate it all in a day. Maybe it’s a little too salty though. I want to make an entire order full of these things.

SurfSweets, Watermelon Rings, 2.75 oz (78 g) – $2.25

This is my biggest disappointment. I was so excited to receive those candies and I didn’t like them. It doesn’t taste like watermelon. To me, watermelon flavour is probably one of the hardest thing to recompose. I’ve eaten watermelon candies that didn’t really tasted like watermelon, but they were good though. But there… I couldn’t even say that it taste good. Don’t get me wrong, it doesn’t taste bad neither, it’s not like so disgusting that you want to puke. It just taste weird. And I didn’t like it. Won’t buy again.

Annie’s Homegrown, Organic Macaroni & Cheese, Low Sodium, 6 oz (170 g) – $2.22

Macaroni & cheese is like a fantasm for me. Dude, I cooked so many macaroni & cheese in The Sims… So when I saw this on iHerb I thought that it was time for me to taste this. And… It’s so-so. The cheddar powder has a disgusting smell, seriously. But once it’s mixed with milk and all, it’s ok. The whole thing doesn’t taste bad, but it’s the kind of thing that you eat when you’re hungry and there’s nothing else in the kitchen. No big interest. Fortunately, we ate it with some bacon.

THE END. And remember, the coupon code is still valid if you order on iHerb for the first time :

HVL901

Chinchillas, unicorns and glitters, always. Peace out pisces!

(Sorry I just… Goodbye.)

iHerb mega haul – part 2

Hello sweeties,

Part 2 yey! Like I said the other day, today is dedicated to body wash & care products. Let’s go!

iHerb mega haul 5 © Wina

Method, Pure Naked, Moisturizing Body Wash, White Tea, 18 fl oz (532 ml) – $5.62

The only reasons that made me want to buy this were : the price and the packaging. Hey, the bottle looks nice, doesn’t it? Ok, the presence of tea in the composition was the icing on the cake that made me put it in the basket. Speaking of the composition, this one has no parabens, phthalates, EDTA, silicones and PEG.

I’m using it everyday, because I’m a clean person (surprise!). I don’t how white tea smell like, all I can say is that the body wash smells… acid. I mean, you know, when you smell something and you can say “it’s sugary/salty/[insert adjective here]”. There, it smells acid. Maybe I should go to the nose shop to change mine, but to me, it smells acid (well, yeah, ok Wina, we got it, “acid”).
 Anyway, about the moisturizing thing, I’m pretty skeptical. It doesn’t dry my skin, but I wouldn’t say with insurance that it does moisturize my skin. It’s just like usual. Yes, that was very useful.

EcoTools, Sustainable Body Buff – $1.65

I wanted that kind of scrub thingy for quite a while now. And there we are! I chose this one because there’s a loofah made scrubing face :

And a soft bamboo rayon made washing face :

I didn’t try it yet, but I can’t wait for having the softest skin in the world.

Hugo Naturals, All Over Lotion, Grapefruit, 8 fl oz (236 ml) – $8.62

First thing that made me choose this body lotion : the packaging, of course. It’s very pretty, but also practical. I love pump systems, it makes your life much easier. I didn’t open it yet, but I’m looking forward to smell the grapefruit scent. I have a massage oil with grapefruit essential oil in it and it’s fabulous. Other good thing about this body lotion : it’s parabens, phenoxyethanol, SLS, PEGs, propylene glycol, petroleum products, artificial colors, synthetic fragrances, gluten and soy free. And some ingredients are organic, what more could you ask for?

Alvera, Aloe & Almonds, Roll-On Deodorant, 3 fl oz (89 ml) – $3.84

I’ve read lots of positive comments about this deo. I think it’s the one that is the most sold on iHerb, or something like that. And I understand pretty much why it’s so popular! It has a wonderful smell of almond and it’s pretty efficient. Of course, it doesn’t stop the sweating, but it really neutralizes the smell of the armpits. Except when it’s very hot. In that case, I think there’s nothing to do anyway. But there’s a black point. Indeed, there’s an ingredient in the composition, alcloxa. And under this name hides aluminum of allantoin. Aluminum. Pardon my following words but : FUCK THIS SHIT. I’ve been trying to avoid aluminum in deodorant for years now and this is kind of ruining it all. This is the only reason that won’t make me buy it again. Too bad.

Earth Science, Natural Deodorant, Liken Plant, Unscented, 2.5 oz (70 g) – $4.87

I pinched my sister’s deodorant for about 2 monthes because I was waiting for my Soapwella that never arrived eventually. So I decided to buy a new one for her. The packaging is fresh and cute. And about the composition, it seems that there’s no aluminum in it, but there’s a type of silicone. I guess it’s still better than aluminum.

Giovanni, Moisturizing Shave Cream, Invigorating, Tea Tree & Mint, 7 fl oz (207 ml) – $5.36

Ha, shaving! My favourite activity (no). As the weather is getting hotter, I thought I should buy a refreshing shave cream. I’ve never tried that kind of experience, I hope I won’t be disappointed and that my legs will feel as cold as a mint ice cream (my favourite by the way).

Parissa, Natural Hair Removal System, Hot Wax, 4 oz (120 g) – $6.92

Yes, I’m a yeti. Hairs everywhere. After years of epilator on my legs, I feel like I can shave them with a razor without being wire-haired. But for the sensitive parts (armpits & bikini), I mainly use hot wax. When I bought this box, I was expecting something very basic : a plastic container full of wax, a spatula and the instructions, that’s all. But when I received it, I was really surprised. Look at this!

I really like that the wax is in a metallic container. I don’t know, it’s like some kind of guarantee of quality. I also appreciate that there are several spatulas and a tiny glass bottle of azulene oil. Classy.

And that’s all for today. Don’t forget the coupon code if you order on iHerb for the first time :

HVL901

See you later for the last iHerb haul part with the magical balms and the food.
