online purchase review

Hey guys,

So I’ve been scouring the net for natural skincare products to try – and most of these brands were located in the U.S and it was difficult to find out whether they shipped to Australia and how much the shipping would be. Anyways, I ended up finding Nourished Life which stocks overseas brands such as 100% Pure and Vapour cosmetics as well as their own brand, Life Basics. When you sign up, you receive $5 off your first purchase when you spend $50 or more and on top of that, you also receive free shipping (offer accurate at the time of this blogpost.)

The lipbalms were packaged in a cute organza drawstring pouch.

I ordered this on a Sunday and received the package the following Wednesday – delivery only took 3 days! I ordered the following/ also I’ve written reviews on them so click on the links to read each individual review!

Hurraw! Organic lip balm

100% Pure Cherry lip balm 

100% Pure hydrating tonique

100% Pure Coffee bean caffeine eye cream (purchased this for someone else so I don’t have a review for this )

Biodegradable activated charcoal infused floss picks

Life basics- White clay + activated charcoal body soap

100% recyclable packaging! There’s no Styrofoam or bubblewrap lining, instead it’s an unique structure of recycled paper.

Overall comments

Though some products were hits and misses, I definitely would repurchase again – in fact, I’ve put in an order for some natural makeup samples (some brands do the sample sizes which is great because most of these natural makeup brands are almost non existent in Australian stores and hence it’s difficult to do swatches). I’m most impressed with the level of recyclable packaging both the parcel packaging as well as the products had – it really makes shopping online more guilt free!

Thanks for reading – any advice/feedback is greatly appreciated!
