If you’re in Singapore and are wondering how much you can save shopping at iHerb, this post is for you! One of the reasons I wrote this post is because some people have actually asked me that question. The other is because I get a thrill knowing how much I’ve been saving buying directly from iHerb. I don’t know about you but it brings me great satisfaction whenever I notice similar items available locally but at higher prices. And not only do I save, I get so much variety shopping at iHerb with over 35,000 items to choose from!
It seems like facial has become a once-a-year pilgrimage for me and I can’t exert an ounce of energy to go for more than one. Even if I end up going to one, I have to garner lots of motivation just to head to the salon. Like the latest one that I went to at Pure Tincture Boutique—I think the conversation took place for more than a year before I finally set foot at the salon about three weeks ago. And the reason I finally said yes was because I learned that the products used in the organic facial are from Pai Skincare.
Looks like my hair is on a roll these two weeks. First a hair consultation and now a hair makeover. Anyway, some of you may remember how I’d griped about my challenge to find a suitable hairstylist at the end of October. Well, I went for a haircut a week after writing that post but I was still not satisfied with how it had turned out. Don’t mind me but I’ve been super fussy when it comes to my hair since I was a teen. So just as I was contemplating if I should swallow my pride and return to my old hairstylist, I received an invitation to have a hair makeover at Backstage Hair Salon. After some humming and hawing at my end, I finally headed down on Sunday with a friend. But I’ll admit I was hesitant. With a name like Backstage, who is to say my hair won’t turn up looking all wayang? Wayang, for my international readers, is the Singlish equivalent of theatrical.
I was very happy to find out that a favorite online store that sells only natural and organic beauty products is now offering free international shipping. Oh yay! It’s been awhile since I’ve shopped there. Upon checking, I realized that they’ve now introduced lots more brands and naturally thought of writing something about them. But on second thoughts, I decided to cover more than just that store and bring you instead, five online stores that I’ll recommend for a variety of natural and organic beauty buys.
