May'11 - Week 4

I can feel my Urban Decay De-Slick tube is almost empty. I'm not in the mood to spend a lot of $$ on another primer. Well, I'm actually gonna get a couple from Laura Mercier soon. They are free with the LM foundations purchase, but I'm in the mood to try out the makeup primer from iHerb, my favorite natural/organic online drugstore. Luckily, I had a few bucks worth of rewards in my account. So I was able to get the makeup primer for practically free. I only needed to pay for the low $2 shipping fee. O yeah, I also bought a body sponge too!

The makeup primer contains an anti-aging feature called Co-enzyme Q10 (CoQ10). The primer is made of clear thick liquid. One drop is enough to cover my whole face. It absorbs pretty fast. It has good oil-control too. My BB cream foundation is still look 80-90% intact after 12 hours. So, this primer is a keeper.

EARTH THERAPEUTICS Hydro Body Sponge with Hand Strap - $2.38

REVIVA LABS Makeup Primer - $14.05
After rewards, Paid $2 shipped

iHerb also included 3 samples. Usually they gave me crappy samples, some supplements or instant juice powder. This time they included a jam that's imported from France! Yay!!

I came across this jeans on Amazon site. I had to purchase this pair of jeans twice because the first time I ordered one size too small. Luckily Amazon offers free return, they process the return fast too. I love how the bottom part of these skinny jeans is boot cut/flare style. The lenght is perfect too for my height.

I also purchase a big bottle of wheatgrass pills. These pills are great for me who don't eat veggies everyday. They keep my body healthy internally. I have to take 7 pills (3500 mg) per day. The pills are very easy to swallow because they are as small as aspirin.

Thanks to the Amazon gift card that I got from Swagbucks, I saved $50 on these two things! \(^o^)/

HURLEY Yc 69 Skinny Flare Denim Pant - $40.03

After $50 gift card - Total $14.94 shipped


  1. Mmm, I want that coffee sample. :3 Haha.

  2. how do you get rewards on iherb?? I thought you could only pay with cc? I once tried using paypal, but it didn't work :(

  3. @Chiharu,

    They only accept CC.
    You can get credits/rewards from iHerb when people use the $5 referral code. Sign in to your MyAccount, and then go to iHerbs Rewards section to find your referral code. I think you also can get rewards by when you purchase something yourself. I always see pending credits on my account eventhough I haven't had anybody using my referral code for the past 3 months.
