Vitacost Goodies

I've said it before and I'm sure I'll say it again: Vitacost is one of my favorite places to shop online.  They carry a ton of products, their prices are great, and I've recently experienced just how good their customer service is too!  If you follow me on twitter, you might remember me tweeting a couple weeks ago about finding my Vitacost order outside my house with the box cut open and missing almost everything I ordered.  What did Vitacost do?  They shipped me out a brand new box the very next day!  Pretty fantastic, no?

I've placed a couple orders recently and I thought it would be fun to show you what I got.  First we have the cosmetics:

Nourish Exfoliating Body Polish
I usually make my own scrubs, but that means that when I get busy, I often end up not exfoliating.  Plus, I've been eying Nourish's products ever since hearing about them from Dawn of Turby and John.  I can't wait to try this out!

Blum Naturals Unscented All-Purpose Cleansing Wipes

I've never really been a makeup wipes kind of girl, but they are a good thing to have on hand for those nights when you just can't manage to wash your face.  I should mention that these aren't specifically face wipes, but I chose them since Blum's actual face wipes don't have an unscented option.  

Aura Cacia Organic Argan Oil
I'm a bit late jumping on the argan oil bandwagon, but I'm officially there now!  I got this a couple weeks ago and have been using it as a leave-in when I scrunch my hair and let it air dry.  (Lets be honest here, that means most days.)  It helps define my curls and control frizz, and has also made my hair seem healthier overall.

Honeybee Gardens Luscious Lip Gloss in Innocence
I haven't tried this yet, but I really like Honeybee Gardens' lipsticks, so I'm hopeful that this will be equally awesome!

I couldn't resist picking up a couple snacks either:

Vitaspelt Pretzels
These are wheat-free, yeast-free pretzels and they're tasty too!  I used to be able to find them in local health food stores, but I haven't seen them in years, so I was glad to find them from Vitacost.

Yummy Earth Wild Peppermint Refresh Mints
I really like Yummy Earth's other candies, though this will be my first time trying their mints.  I'm sure they'll be great.

Barbara's Bakery Oatmeal Snackimals
I used to snack on these as a kid and for $0.91, I threw them in my cart, just for nostalgia's sake.  If I remember correctly, they're quite delightful.

I'm sure I'll review at least some of these things in the future, once I've had more of a chance to test them out, but that's all for now!  Let me know if there's anything specific you'd like to hear more about.

And, don't forget, if you've never ordered from Vitacost, you can get $10 off your first purchase by signing up using my referral link.



  1. Hey, I've been eyeing those lip glosses from Honeybee Gardens let us know how you like them. I really like their lip liners they seem to work pretty well but have a limited range of colors.

  2. I've been wondering about Vitacost but since I'm Canadian I'm on the fence. I know you're Canadian too so maybe you can give me a little feed back. Does it take long? Do you pay any additional fees besides the original payment?

    Great little haul! xo

  3. @Audreiana - I'll definitely do a review once I've had a chance to test it out. I haven't tried Honeybee Gardens' lip liners before, but I have been tempted :) Great to hear they work well!

    @EcoChicBeautyDiva - I've always been really happy with Vitacost. They ship quickly, but it does take about 2-3 weeks to arrive. I haven't had to pay any additional fees, but my understanding is Canadian customs CAN charge taxes + fees on any purchases over $20. They usually don't, but there's always a chance I guess.

    I get really frustrated seeing how much things get marked up here, so for me, it works to pay less and chance the customs fees, if that makes sense! Shipping is also only $2.99, so I feel okay placing multiple small orders, rather than waiting and placing one big one. Hope that helps!

  4. I hope you love the body polish! I've definitely gotta order from Vitacost soon; I'll be sure to use your referral link. :)

  5. Thanks! I tried it today and so far so good, I really like it :)

  6. You got great products here. I am interested in trying out the Aura Cacia Organic Argan Oil. I am having problems on the way my hair looks. I want to make it look soft, shining and manageable. I hope this product will work well on my hair.

  7. I hope so too! My hair looks a lot healthier since I've been using it :)

  8. BOOOO! I just went on Vitacost to order some things and shipping is $7.99. I originally had 4 items and reduced it to 2 to see if it made a difference and it didn't. How disappointing. If I decide to pick up anything I will use your referral link but thought I'd let you know anyway :)
