Default Aubrey Organics GPB - where to get it?

I ended up in bosanbo's topic about protein (2C/3A fine/low por - want to try PT?) and after some chatting, she and other curlies recommended Aubrey Organics GPB. I'm very curious to try protein and this sounds really good. I also did my research and most curlies with varying hair poperties are very enthusiastic about it. Thus, I really want to try this conditioner, hoping it will get my curls back again instead of the limp mess they are now (they seem to dislike oils).

However, I always prefer going to a store over ordering online. I've checked some Dutch natural health stores such as De Tuinen, but haven't had any luck yet. Now I have two options:

- Ordering it on iHerb.com (thanks to Aqua_Lily that I remembered this!)
- Getting it when I'm in London in a short while.

Who has experience with iHerb.com? I would go for Global Priority Mail by DHL, which does not give a T&T or refunding if anything goes wrong. Average delivery to NL is 15 days.

Or should I just wait until I'm in London and get some there? The difference in price is that I will pay $10.29 including delivery at iHerb versus 10.55 in London (translated into euros: 8.04 vs. 12.42).

Do you live anywhere near a Whole Foods? I know not all of them have as large of a "personal products" (face & body wash, natural products, etc.) section as mine does, but I actually found the Aubrey line there last time I was shopping.

No, I live in the Netherlands, but I'll be visiting London very soon and I'm sure a big city like that will have a Whole Foods. Actually, I found a list with stockists in the UK: Stockists - Aubrey Organics

My boyfriend noted that it would make more sense to get it in while we're in the UK and try it then so I can get some extra bottles if I like it. That actually makes sense.

I'm just curious now: are you from the UK?

I've used iherb several times and find them excellent. Good prices, cheap postage and gets here in a relatively quick time (just in case you decide to go that route sometime).

Thanks for your reply, Starmie! I decided that I'm taking my boyfriend's advice and try it while I'm still in London, but if I like it I will definitely order via iHerb.com :-) Good to know that they're reliable!
