iHerb Haul | Health, Beauty, Cruelty Free Makeup!

I placed another order with iHerb as I do pretty much every month for the last 15+ years! I needed a few staples plus I couldn't help but get my hands on a few beauty products, of course!


Madre Labs CocoCeps $10.95 each ( I purchased 2 to get to $40 for cheaper shipping!)
My regular readers may be sick of seeing my talk about my CocoCeps but I can't get enough! I use it daily in my protein drink. It's an organic dark unsweetened heart healthy cocoa powder that also has immune boosting cordyceps & reishi powders. I have an aversion to eating mushrooms, so this is the only way that I can get the health benefits from them. And, NO, you can't taste them.


Alive Once Daily Women's Ultra Potency Multi-Vitamin $16.37 / 60 tabs
I decided to switch up my multi vitamin again ( I always do). I've taken this one before and decided to go back to it and see how I feel. These are food based vitamins with orchard fruits, garden veggies, daily greens, enzymes, plus herbs for the heart, hair, skin & nails, as well as women's' health. Oh, it also contains a mushroom defense blend.

Now Foods Slippery Elm $5.73 / 400mg x 100 caps
Slipper Elm , also known as Red Elm, Moose Elm or Indian Elm, is a small North American tree that has been used by herbalist for over 100 years. The bark is known for its mucilage. It's reported to be great for many stomach/digestive issues, IBS, heartburn, sore throats among other issues. I love reading the reviews on the items on iHerb, I learn a lot from others from their reviews.

Boiron Arnica Montana Homeopathic Remedy $6.85 approx 80 pellets
Arnica Montana has been used for centuries as a natural pain reliever. It can soothe sore muscles and stiffness, reduce swelling from injuries and discoloration from bruising. Arnica is one of the most popular homeopathic remedies. It should be in everyone's first aid kit at home. I have books on homeopathy and there are many more uses for Arnica Montana, I've even read that it can help with insomnia.  Homeopathic remedies do not have any contraindications with allopathic medicines.

I love that iHerb also carries some ELF cosmetics. It makes it more accessible to me here in Canada. I decided to try another shade in the Matte Lip Color. I chose the shade Tea Rose. And, I finally caved after hearing all the hype and purchased Elf's Lip Exfoliator. If it's as good as I hear, I'll be one happy camper! My lips are always in rough shape.

Elf Matte Lip Color in Tea Rose

I love these Matte lip colours by Elf. They are creamy and non-drying. This one is a gorgeous muted purple shade! 
This convenient jumbo sized lip pencil creates extract color application.
The pigment rich color glides on effortlessly and provides long-lasting matte color.
The enriched Vitamin A, C & E formula moisturizes and hydrates lips for all day comfort.

Such a beautiful muted purple!

Elf Matte Lip Color in Tea Rose

This product is new to me. I hope it works as well as I hear it does as my lips are in pretty bad condition.  I will follow up with a blog post to let you know.
Gently exfoliates lips to remove dry chapped skin with a sugary sweet and smoothing sensation.
Infused with Vitamin E Shea Butter, Avocado Grape and Jojoba Oil to nourish and protect.
Treats and smoothes lips for a conditioned and revitalized feel.

I hope you enjoyed seeing what I purchased. I can't wait to use these products now. I actually purchased them last month but was waiting to haul them. I will probably be reviewing some of these products to let you know the good, the bad or the ugly! ;)

  1. Love ELF!! and love the two products you picked up! Did you know that the Superstore in Canada is carrying ELF now! At least at mine they are :) I have a few of the Matte lip colours and grab for them more than my others most days. So easy to use and they do not try out my lips either!

    1. I have seen ELF at the Superstore. It's not too close to me though so I rarely go there and their selection is small. I have also seen ELF at Walmart lately too. I'm loving these new products so far!
