It’s been well over a year since I did my last eBay purchases reviews here on the ol’ blog. I thought I was well overdue and since I did a bit of shopping before Christmas, I’m now going to share the items I received.

I thought it would benefit people to see what I bought online and if it is, in fact a good representation of the photos they show in order to sell their product. On the left is their advertised item, on the right, my photo.

eBay-tongue-scraperSeller: 99eu on eBay
Item2x Oral Dental Care Tongue Cleaner Brush Scraper Kit Soft Clean Away Bad Breath
Paid: $1.68 + free shipping. Worth the price? Yes
Location: Hong Kong
Delivery: 18 business days
My opinion: I was interested in this because I’ve heard a number of people talk about how clean their tongues felt after scraping them after brushing their teeth. I tend to brush my tongue with my tooth brush so while the scraper is interesting to use, it left my mouth feeling completely dry and parched. I don’t use it every day, but I do keep it on hand to use once in a while.

eBay-pensSeller: wubearwenlin on eBay
Item: Pilot Hi-Tec-C gel pens 0.25mm (5 black pen)
Paid: $11.98 + free shipping. Worth the price? Yes
Location: Taiwan
Delivery: 7 business days
My opinion: I came across these extra fine point gel pens here in California, but they were close to $4 a pop at a store in Santana Row. I hunted them down on eBay and now I’m happy as a clam. I LOVE these pens, they’re definitely my go-to favourite pen, ever. Ever! They are so thin they write on paper like you’re scraping it with a needle. I have 5 of the pens, unlike my photo showing 3. I have them everywhere around the house and in my purses.

eBay-feathersSeller: thefeatherguy on eBay
Item: 5 MARABOU FEATHER BOAS 2 Yards 15 Grams: WHITE Only Sale!! (Costume/Halloween)
Paid: $10.95 + free shipping. Worth the price? Yes
Location: New York
Delivery: 4 business days
My opinion: I made a festive Christmas feather wreath using narrow white feather boas. The cheapest I could find them (including using a coupon at Jo-Anns fabrics, or Michaels craft store) was this eBay seller. I forgot to take a before picture of the feathers. But they were accurate to the sellers description.

eBay-rain-bootsSeller: minhsang11 on eBay
Item: Women’s Rubber RainBoots Black/Leopard Size 6 to 11
Paid: $19.99 + $9.99. Worth the price? Not sure I could get them cheaper elsewhere, so let’s go with yes.
Location: Delaware
Delivery: 3 business days
My opinion: I haven’t had a set of rain boots since I was kid, and I wasn’t about to fork over an absurd amount of money on a pair of wellies, so I made my way over to eBay once again – and the sellers saved the day. I purchased these shiny black rubber boots that reeked so bad of neoprene (like wetsuit material. It totally makes me gag when The Guy leaves his wetsuit around the living room. The smell is so gross). These rubber boots also stank for a few days. They run small. I’m normally a perfect 8.5 shoe, since they don’t have half sizes I bought the 9 and they still feel a bit snug. They arrived in a regular USPS flat box, and one part of my boot was smooshed, but nothing too absurd that it can’t be worn.

eBay-pompom-hatSeller: greatdeal456 on eBay
Item: Ladies Winter Warm Ski Knit Knitted Bobble Pom Beanie Cap Hat 10 Colors Hot Sale
Paid: $3.78 + free shipping Worth the price? Yes
Location: China
Delivery: 9 business days
My opinion: The quality was better than I had anticipated, especially for under four bucks. The knitted beanie is bigger than I thought it’d be (thinking child-size) but it’s even a little too big for my head, which is great since it won’t put any pressure on my head when I’m wearing it. It’s cute enough to buy multiples of. Thinking of getting it in black too.

eBay-blanket-scarfSeller: qb.studio on eBay
Item: Blanket Oversized Tartan Scarf Wrap Shawl Plaid Cozy Checked Pashmina Women
Paid: $6.99 + $3.99. Worth the price? Not sure I could get them cheaper elsewhere, so let’s go with yes.
Location: China
Delivery: 10 business days
My opinion: I have seen blanket scarves all over the internet this season, and I debated about buying one for myself for a while. As much as I liked it, I talked myself out of buying the plaid ones I saw at Zara and Target because I didn’t really need another new scarf. I couldn’t stop thinking about it, so I searched eBay for a “plaid blanket scarf” and found this gem for under $11. It’s a little smelly. If you go into bargain stores, you understand the smell of all the clothing. Kinda plasticy, kinda musty. But airing the scarf out for a few days (as it was in plastic wrap) made the stench go away. Minus one star for accuracy on scarfs pattern.

See my previous eBay/Etsy purchases here, here, here and here. Wow, didn’t realize this was my 5th time showing you all what I’ve purchased online. Quite the shopper I am. But since you guys seem to really like it, I’ve kept it up :)

watchSeller: fawy2068 on eBay
Item: NEW(green)Unisex Geneva Silicone Jelly Gel Quartz Analog Sports Wrist Watch
Paid: $2.87 + free shipping. Worth the price? Yes
Location: China
Delivery: 7 business days
My opinion: One thing I noticed when I received it was that there’s both rose gold (on the face) and silver hardware (on the back where the clasp is). So that’s pretty odd. But for three bucks, I don’t mind it at all. It’s a larger make I’m on the smallest setting of fitting it on my wrist, but then again I have a 5.75″ (very tiny) wrist.

Item: Sally Hansen SALON Nail Lacquer – Sweet Creams
Paid: $1.99 + $9.00 shipping. Worth the price? Yes
Location: USA
Delivery: 5 business days
My opinion: This is a discontinued color by Sally Hansen nail polish that I’ve been on the hunt for, for a few years. So glad to have finally found a fresh bottle of it again!

Item: 5 Styles Silicone Cake Muffin Chocolate Cupcake Case Liner Baking Cup Mould DIY
Paid: $5.58 + free shipping. Worth the price? Yes
Location: China
Delivery: 10 business days
My opinion: Not sure whether or not to keep using these silicone molds from China. I’ve heard bad and good things about it. Anyone know? I just love them because they’re non-stick… for real. None of that fake non-stick stuff.

Item: Nail Art Cuticle Revitalise Oil Treatment Soften Tool Nutritional Pen
Paid: $1.39 + free shipping. Worth the price? Yes
Location: China
Delivery: 10 business days
My opinion: I bought both the orange and pineapple scented oil pens and received lemon, and pineapple. I was told I was going to be sent another oil but it never showed. The cuticle oil is very liquid-like instead of an thicker consistency. I won’t be buying from the seller again.

This is becoming a reoccurring trend! My fourth eBay purchase “review” post.

View the rest here, here and here.  Well, let’s get started! Just to note, the item that was for sale is displayed on the left and the right image is a photo I took of my purchase.

Double--Ball-Necklace

Seller: wangdecheng9898 on eBay
ItemTwo Hollow Ball Crystal Pendants Long Necklace
Paid: $1.29 + free shipping. Worth the price? Yes
Location: China
Delivery: 24 business days
My opinion: It broke the first few hours of wearing, but it was easily fixable with pliers and some patience. It’s a nice little necklace, and wearing it a lot lately. Gotten a few compliments. It’s worth the buck twenty nine!

Seller: panda-blossom on eBay
Item: Glossy Frosting bangle&bracelet Lovers Stainless Steel bangle
Paid: $10.75 + free shipping. Worth the price? Yes
Location: China
Delivery: 14 business days
My opinion: It’s a pretty cute bracelet. It’s difficult finding bracelets small enough to fit me, which is annoying. So this fits about average sized wrists.

bubble-bracelet

Seller: china.seller16888 on eBay
Item: Fashion Charm Style Friendship Bangle Contractile Bracelet
Paid: $6.99 + free shipping. Worth the price? Yes
Location: China
Delivery: 12 business days
My opinion: It ended up being so much larger in person that I had imagined. I love the way it looks on my arm, but I can definitely see the silver “chipping off” with time.

turquoise-bracelet

Seller: shopdashingdaisy on eBay
ItemDesigner Style Silver Cable Turquoise Stone Thin Cuff Bracelet
Paid: $16.99 + $7.00 shipping. Worth the price? No
Location: United States
Delivery: 9 business days
My opinion: Apparently this is a knock-off David Yurman bracelet. I only noticed after I had purchased it. So that’s pretty decent, for $25. However, since I have tiny wrists this isn’t the most ideal bracelet. While it’s great looking on the arm, it “flips” over making the turquoise on the bottom of the wrist. I’d rather it stay in place. I don’t think I’d pay the price again if I had the time back.

 claw-ring

Seller: topitem.hsl on eBay
Item: Retro Style Punk Eagle Bird Claw Talon Ring
Paid: $0.99 + free shipping. Worth the price? Yes
Location: United States
Delivery: 13 business days
My opinion: I have pretty narrow fingers and this ring fit on my pinky. Thankfully with a little work, I ended up bending it to fit my middle finger or pointer. It’s cute, but it’s hard to style, I find!

Seller: WhiteBear-2008 on eBay
Item: 2 Pump Dispenser Nail Art Acetone Polsh Makeup Remover
Paid: $3.19 + free shipping. Worth the price? Yes
Location: Hong Kong
Delivery: 10 business days
My opinion: Been waiting for one of these for ages! Love the convenience of a pump dispenser. Just wanted it to close a little more tightly in case it tipped over. But other than that, it was a good buy.

racer-back

Seller: Bigkeyboard on eBay
Item: Basic women’s solid tank top racer back
Paid: $3.69 + free shipping. Worth the price?Yes
Location: China
Delivery: 9 business days
My opinion: The reason I got this was because I’m in need of a few cami’s, and I only like to buy mine from Forever 21, since they’re so inexpensive at $3.80 a pop.

hair-donut

Seller: Bigkeyboard on eBay
Item: Hair bun ring donut
Paid: $1.39 + free shipping. Worth the price? Yes
Location: China
Delivery:9 business days 
My opinion: Upon opening the donut looked like there were a few droplets of oil on it. I soaked it all up for a few days in tissues and used it in my hair. Works just as well as a sock, but this comes in 3 different sizes for whatever your preference may be.
