Self-care is all about treating yourself and it doesn’t have to be expensive! Here are 8 best self-care products that you and your wallet will love.
So, your schedule is a little out of whack. At least, I know mine is. When this happens, it’s easy to stop taking care of yourself. After all, staying home every single day does have a Groundhog Day kind of effect. (Thank goodness for these free Hollywood celebrity workout routines that got me moving a little…)
Self-care is certainly more important than ever – that’s why I’m sharing with you a list of my favourite self-care products that’s not only affordable, but also cruelty-free! What’s better than loving both yourself and Mother Earth? And one of the best places to get these items is none other than iHerb, the holy grail of affordable beauty and health products.
In addition to all sorts of supplement that may help to boost our immunity, they also have cheaper essential oils compared to Muji and cheaper makeup compared to Watsons and Guardian. What’s not to love? 😍
Pro tip: It’s also cheaper to pay in USD on iHerb! Since it’s cheaper in USD, the prices below will be converted from their USD prices.
