New-in: Haul

As mentioned in my previous 100 Day Spending Ban weekly update, I placed an order on when there was a 20% off Real Techniques brushes.  Main reason was to get my cousin a set of Travel Essentials, but I went a little - just a little - over-board and ordered a little more.  

Note: use code JBF362 to get $5 to $10 off your first order off!

Hair Care and Deodorant

  • Mane 'n Tail, Herbal Gro Shampoo, 12 fl oz (355 ml) $4.11 - I am enjoying the de-tangling spray I got in my last iHerb order, therefore decided to try out the shampoo.  Mane 'n Tail is very expensive in local stores so I am glad I can get these from iHerb!
  • Avalon Organics, Biotin B-Complex Therapy Thickening Shampoo, 14 fl oz (414 ml) $7.29 - My friend Hakme has raved about the Avalon Organics line on her blog (hair care/shower), and because I'm staying away from local pharmacies (I'm prone to buying skin care 'accidentally'), I decided to order a shampoo to try out.  
  • Alba Botanica, Clear Enzyme Deodorant Stick, Aloe Unscented, 2 oz (57 g) $4.37
  • Jason Natural, Deodorant Stick, Purifying Tea Tree, 2.5 oz (71 g) $5.04 - Using this now, smells really refreshing of tea tree and doesn't irritate my arm-pit.  :P
  • Alvera, Aloe and Almonds, Roll-On Deodorant, 3 fl oz (89 ml) $3.84 - For Mr. A~
  • Mineral Fusion, Volumizing Shampoo, 1.5 fl oz (44 ml) $2.72
  • Mineral Fusion, Volumizing Conditioner, 1.5 fl oz (44 ml) $2.72 - The Mineral Fusion line is on sale so I decided to give these two a go.  Perfect size for a short holiday.  I'm vulnerable to anything volumizing, grow, or thickening when it comes to tresses, can't you tell?

  • Zico, Pure Premium Coconut Water, 11.2 fl oz (330 ml) $1.90
  • Naked, 100% Coconut Water, 11.2 fl oz (330 ml) $1.93 - Both of these are from Brazil green coconuts.  I have never tried these before.  Now that I have, I am not impressed.  Our Asian coconuts are way more delicious, sweeter, better taste and 'smoother'.  I bet this is a healthy way to quench thirst, well, not going to repurchase; we have better coconuts at this part of the world!
  • Stash Tea Company, Premium, Herbal Tea Sampler, Caffeine Free, 9 Flavors, 18 Tea Bags, 1.0 oz (30 g) $2.37 - Tried a couple of flavours, the mint is really strong and uplifting, the passionfruit is fruity and adds a splash of good mood to a dull day.  A great way to taste several flavours in 1 box before committing to larger quantity!
  • Triple Leaf Tea, Blood Pressure, Caffeine-Free, 20 Tea Bags, 1.4 oz (40 g) $4.30 - For Mr. A. 
  • freebie - St. Dalfour Organic Spring Mint Green Tea - this taste fresh and nice, may repurchase!
Real Techniques!

  • Real Techniques by Samantha Chapman, Travel Essentials, 3 Brushes + Case $28.78 (Qty: 2x) - One for my cousin, one for me!  This is my second set and I am so in love with the Multi-Task Brush and Domed Shadow Brush - not so much the Essential Foundation Brush, but that's Okay for me~ ;)

Go get yourself some Real Techniques brushes now!  I'm sure I will make an order very soon, for the new set of 3 dual-fibre brushes.  For first-timer at, use code JBF 362 for $5 - $10 off your order.  That is almost free shipping if you choose the cheapest option!

Beautiful wishes,
Lazy silly Jacq :")


  1. With that discount I bought three brushes set!
    I want them now!! I want to try the eye brushes...

    1. Yay Eugenia! They are really nice brushes - tell me what's your favourite after you tried!

  2. I should try the real technique brushes. I'm pretty sure our 椰青taste a lot better than their coconut water.

    1. @Sylvia,
      100% sure our coconut is better than theirs! :D Asian pride? lol
