Miss my haul post? I'm back with yet another post, this time from iherb. I'm pretty sure most, if not all of you have heard of this website. For those who never shopped there before, you gotta. And use the code: KDB598 for USD10 off your first purchase. I must warn you though that this code can only be used once, so use it wisely. If your total is not over USD40, you will only be entitled to USD4 off your first purchase, so, be sure your total is over USD40. 

Process:

Ordered & Paid: 10/1
Uploaded my passport: 12/1
Shipped: 13/1
Tax form uploaded: 22/1

Ok, yes, the process for ordering stuff from the US is tedious when you are in China. :P If you are currently living in China & have any problems ordering, feel free to email me & I'll try to help you.

Pictures:


Was so excited my parcel finally came that I couldn't wait till morning to take the pictures under proper lighting. Sorry! :P



The box that I've been waiting for: 


I just love opening parcels, I mean, who doesn't? 


Sneak peak: XP



First item: The medicated lip ointment from Blistex




Lip medex from Blistex:



Once again, another product from Blistex:


The raved lip butter from Nivea:


Just another flavour: 



The reason I ordered from iHerb;


The other reason :



I just needed to stock up on moisturisers:



Just what I need to get through this cold & dry winter:

Did I ever mention how affordable & great Queen Helene's products are?




As you can see, I ordered lots of lip products & moisturisers. I have super dry skin, acne prone too. And well, for my lips, they crack like crazy! (I'm just justifying why I splurge. XP )



What I like:


  • Price of all things on iherb.
  • Everything arrived safely with no leakage. (there were a few dents here & there)
  • The whole process was informed through email
  • They have all these American drugstore brands which you can't get if you're not from America

Disappointments:


  • The need to pay tax. (For your info, this is my 2nd time ordering from China. I didn't need to pay tax for my 1st purchase. i guess it had something to do with the method of shipping. Both times, I used different shipping methods.)
  • Tax can only be paid using Alipay ( I don't have an Alipay account, which made it so difficult)
  • No coupon codes or special discounts for ongoing customers.

Will I repurchase?

After the tax? I'll have to think about it.
But there's no question that I will definitely still order & have the products ship to Malaysia.



Well, once again, if you guys are interested to order from iHerb, do use the code KDB598 for USD10 off your first purchase. And I can't stress enough that this code should be used wisely since codes can only be used once & only during your first purchase. Any questions, feel free to email me or just leave a comment down below.
