iHerb Favourites (+ extra discounts until April 30!)

It's no surprise, if you've read much of my blog, that I'm a big fan of iHerb.  I made my first order in October of 2011, and I'd estimate I've placed between two and six orders every year since!  iHerb is a great source for all kinds of healthy products at a discount -- I most often purchase cosmetics and personal care products, but they also carry a good selection of food, supplements, and household, baby, and cleaning products. 

I've had this post on my blog to-do list for a couple months, but with some extra promotions running this weekend, it seemed like a great time to finally fit it in!  Right now, most makeup on the website is currently discounted an extra 10%.  If you've never ordered before, you can also save $10 off your first order of $15 or more (up from a usual 5-10%!).  Both offers are running until the end of the month (April 30).  You can also get an extra 2.5% cashback on your purchases by shopping through Rakuten/Ebates.  

I am an iHerb affiliate, but whether you choose to shop through my links or not, I think they're a great source for affordable brands and products, especially for those of us outside the US or with more limited local access to products.  For fellow Canadians, I suggest shipping with one of the duties & taxes included options to avoid any surprise charges at the door.  I like DHL since it's often discounted for purchases over $40 and almost always arrives within 2-3 days.  

Let's get to the goodies!  I've explored a lot of iHerb's catalogue over the years, but these are the items I continue to purchase time and time again.

2018 Clean Beauty Awards: Winners Revealed!

Months of testing by a panel of more than 65 judges, hundreds of products in 15 different categories, and the results are finally in!  

The Clean Beauty Awards, organized annually by CertClean and PurPicks, celebrate excellent products in the non-toxic beauty sector.  The awards are based here in Toronto, but products submissions come from brands from all over the world.  I was asked to judge for the second time this year and it's always a thrill to see the entrants, finalists, and, of course, winners, which were just revealed yesterday.

You can check out the all the winners on the Clean Beauty Awards website, but I also want to take the chance to highlight my personal top three products from the awards -- two winners and one that, for reasons that are beyond me, must not have scored quite as high with the other judges.
