Goodies - Bloom Remedies, RAL, iHerb & Vanessa's Choice

February 23, 2015

I've been doing a bit of shopping over the last month, here's what I picked up... (video here)


I didn't realise but I had built up some 'credit' on my iHerb account thanks to people using my referral link so I decided to use it for blog 'research' purposes. I've been keen to try something from Benecos for a while now so I purchased a lip gloss. I also want to do a piece on 'natural' face wipes so bought some from Blum Naturals. I haven't tried a powder highlighter so I was excited to order this one from Pacifica.

I really like iHerb for affordable natural products, I also find their shipping times and costs very reasonable. If you want money off your first order with iHerb you can use this link: click here.

Red Apple Lipstick:

RAL were having their Valentines Day sale and I simply couldn't resist splashing out. I really wanted to buy the Audrey Bundle but it was over $100 and I already had the lip gloss and one of the eye shadows so I decided to go for '2 shadows for the price of 3' offer and buy six shadows altogether to finish off my Z palette.

With 5% off site wide plus a further 15% off for pre-registration AND the 2 for 3 offer it worked out a fairly reasonable £10 per shadow with all postage and customs charges... still painful but their shadows are awesome.

I entered their Instagram picture competition and they gave me an additional eye shadow (Secret Garden) as a 'thank you' gift.

Bloom Remedies:

Bloom Remedies were having a sale on some of their items so I jumped at the chance to buy a little something for my giveaway (some deep release bath melts - not pictured) whilst also re-purchasing my favourite EVER body butter and try out some new products; Eye Make Up Remover, Hand Lotion and Bath Melts. The lovely Marie kindly included a Clear Vitality Body Oil as a gift to me, she said it compliments the bath melts perfectly... I can't wait to try it all out!

Vanessa's Choice

This is another one of my advertisers - I regularly shop with all of my advertisers because I think they are all great!

I needed some more of my fail safe, favourite toner from Oh! Organics so while I was there I picked up some more facial wipes (for the blog post I mentioned earlier) and a soy candle to try out... my first one ever! I also wanted a back up of my favourite lip balm so I bought another Vanilla Hurraw balm.

So there you have my recent goodies, what do you think is the most exciting item there?

    I love pretty much everything from Bloom Remedies, such high quality and amazing scents. I personally love the body butters and the salt scrubs, not the cheapest you can buy but SO delightful. Very rich in both smell and texture :-)
