For those of you who aren't familiar with it: iHerb is an online store that sells nutritional supplements and other healthy natural products. I've heard a lot of good things about it and finally placed my first order about a month ago. I purchased 3 products :
* African Black Soap with Oats, Aloe & Vitamin E
* Queen Helene Mint Julep Masque
* 21st Century Biotin Capsules (5000 mcg)
I got to pick a free product with my order. I chose Madre Bees Organic Honey Lip Balm.
African Black Soap ($3.37) has a lot of very good reviews on MakeUpAlley, so I decided to order one for my mother. She prefers solid soaps to shower gels and says this soap is really good. I only used it once on my face, so I can't say whether I'd recommend it or not, but my mother seems to like it.
As I said, Madre Bees Organic Honey Lip Balm was a freebie. It's not my favorite lip balm, but it is quite good. It's not a heavy duty balm, so if your lips are chapped, you're gonna need something stronger.
Queen Helene Mint Julep Masque ($3.84) is supposed to help dry up acne pimples, rinse away blackheads & shrink enlarged pores. It's not a miracle product, but I like it. My skin is normal/combination and this masks burns a bit, so I guess it's not the best product for sensitive skin, but I bet it would work very well for those with oily skin and pimples.
21st Century Biotin ($4.96) capsules are something that was supposed to help me with my nail problems. My nails are quite weak and they peel all the time. After taking these capsules with 5000 mcg biotin, I've noticed less breaking and peeling, but the peeling didn't stop completely. It's definitely better than it was before.
Organic tea is another thing you can buy at iHerb. I got this St. Dalfour Organic Spring Mint Green Tea as a sample and although I don't drink as much green tea as I used to, it was very nice for a change. Tea lovers, check it out!
It's been a while since I've placed this order on iHerb. In fact, I got two other orders from iHerb in this time. I'll tell you about those products after I try them out. You can tell I was very pleased with the customer service, the shipping costs (flat rate $4.00 for Slovenia) and delivery time. Yeah, iHerb rocks!
