eVitamins || Haul + Review

I recently discovered eVitamins, an online store, similar to Australia's iHerb, but American! I was super excited, however, because while they have a number of amazing vitamins and supplements, they also have a few higher end brands, for affordable prices! Started in 1999, they now successfully ship to over 82 countries worldwide and carry over 25,000 products which are directly integrated with over 600 different manufacturers to ensure they sell only authentic and genuine products at the lowest price. 

I recently did two orders, basically to stock up on some products from a brand I really had been dying to try. I was actually super impressed with their prices, which are cheaper then some of the best sites in Australia. Sure, you have to pay shipping, but look I paid $10-$12 shipping for each of my two orders, which for overseas shipping is pretty good! Some sites will charge you $20+ to ship your parcel to Australia, so $10 is way better. 

What was even more impressive? I did not expect this, but in the two orders I placed, I received a combined total of 21 samples, plus two t shirts. Now that is an impressive amount of samples! A mixture of beauty products as well as vitamins and supplements.

So what did I pick up? I know that you really want to know!! So the big thing I was excited about, was Skyn Iceland, which is a brand I have seen on Mecca and really wanted to try for a while, but the prices are a little pricier than I'd like. You'll be happy to know that eVitamins has a more competitive price range that beats Mecca! Skyn Iceland is designed for stressed skin, which is exactly what I have. So let's hope they help!

I picked up three different Skyn Iceland products to try. The first was the Nordic Peel Pads*. Each tub includes 60 pads, which are perfect for those prone to sensitive skin, but still want to try exfoliating pads. They contain AHA's and BHA's to smooth, minimise congestion and restore radiance to dull, lifeless complexions. And safe to say I can't wait to put these to the test.

Next was the Anti-Blemish Gel*, a unique formula that helps minimize flare-ups effectively without dryness or irritation by employing a highly effective, natural antibacterial to penetrate pores and sweep them super clean. I don't know many Anti-Blemish gels that have worked for me, so let's keep out fingers crossed about this one.

The last Skyn Iceland products I picked up were the Glacial Cleansing Wipes*. A girl can never have enough face wipes, and I love putting new ones to the test, so naturally these ended up in the cart!

Now I picked up one last product from a brand that I really want to get more from -  Deep Steep. I picked up the Brown Sugar and Vanilla Bubble Bath* and it smells DELIGHTFUL!! So now of course I need more... They are a super affordable brand, with some adorable, delicious sounding products! 

So what are my thoughts on eVitamins? Well I have actually been super impressed with everything. Their product range is so impressive, though I was super disappointed that they didn't have any REN Skincare products in stock, but that's ok, I am sure that I will live without (for now). Their shipping was quick and efficient, it only took about two weeks for my orders to arrive, and I had all the tracking at my finger tips at all times! Before you get on your high horse about $10 shipping, IT IS OVERSEAS SHIPPING AND YOU ARE BUYING HEAVY PRODUCTS, so in actual fact it is super affordable, plus allll the samples! You will get so many samples! So yea, I am impressed and will definitely shop with them again!

If you want to shop on eVitamins, guess what! Get $5 off by using the code: la1641935to at check out!

  1. Wow, all those samples! Incredibly generous.

    I <3 me some Deep Steep products! I'm bummed I couldn't find the Passionfruit & Guava hand cream whilst in the States last year as I utterly adore that scent. I got the body butter & body scrub though, so that sufficed.

    1. I know right!! Sooo many!

      I think they have a few of the Passionfruit and Guava range on their website!! Their products are so nice, I need to try some now! xx

  2. Looks like a super interesting site. I'll have to check it out!
