I heart iHerb – My advice and experiences using iHerb.com

iherb.com is a fantastic American website which sells a large range of health and beauty products including vitamins and supplements, make up (e.l.f, real techniques), face and body products like face masks and moisturisers, teas, health foods and much, much more! The best thing about this website is you can easily find products which are not commonly sold in NZ and the value/prices are insanely good!

My personal purchases on this website have included two sets of Real Techniques brushes, e.l.f make up and brushes, Now Foods European clay powder (a face mask which pulls the oil from your face, a Glam Glow dupe) and a selection of vitamin supplements, for example Evening Primrose capsules and zinc tablets.

Comparing the prices on the website to stockists in NZ the savings are huge! A Real Techniques face core collection on iHerb is $18 USD, where as on Trade Me auctions start around $33 NZD, and in store at pharmacy’s they sell for $45 +. e.l.f products start at $2 USD ($2.40 NZD). Vitamins and supplements are also very cost effective, for example I purchased a bottle of 60 vegan Silica complex tablets (great for supporting healthy skin) for $4.69.

It offers international shipping with a selection of two different, affordable shipping options.  $4 – global non-tracked shipping with an estimated                                                          delivery range to NZ of around 18 days

$8 – DHL express tracked shipping, which has an                                                                estimated postal time of 2 – 4 days. You also often get a few little samples                      with this option.

I have used both forms of shipping and highly recommend paying a little extra and selecting the $8 shipping. You receive a tracking number via email within hours of placing your order and the shipping is fast and reliable.  My last order which I used tracked shipping for was ordered on the 9th of January and arrived at my door on the 14th (4 days in total, only 2 working days!). In the past I have used the cheaper shipping, and from memory my package arrived in about 2 and a half weeks, which isn’t too long but I am impatient and prefer the reassuring tracking.
