I am a Canadian expat who lives in Korea and the Philippines. I was reluctant to join iherb at first because I am able to purchase many imported organic, natural products in the Philippines (though at double the suggested retail price). In Korea, it's just too difficult, and even more costly to purchase these items. The reasonable prices, low shipping cost, and super fast shipping won me over. Now I don't have to compromise on the types of items I want to use and consume. It makes it easier to get on track to healthier living.
