Beautorium Haul

August 22, 2016

If you are into all things beauty and have regular access to a device that connects to the internet, you've probably heard of Beauty Heaven.

An Australian-based site (Yay! No pining over unavailable products and regular references to Priceline and Chemist Warehouse), Beauty Heaven offers readers reviews, news, forums and . . . most excitingly, REWARDS.

Rewards, as we all know, are jolly good fun. And these ones are particularly good because they aren't based on spending. Members get reward points for filling out their beauty profile, contributing to forum discussions, posting product reviews . . . even logging in! I can totally do that!

Reward points are then available to be spent in the Beautorium online store that opens a couple of times a year, with a range of products available from skin care, hair care and cosmetics. I know, FREE THINGS! Simply hand over a tenner for postage, which seems reasonable to me and your goods will be heading your way.

As you're able to browse and wishlist the products on offer before the Beautorium opens, I had my sights set on a couple of items that I knew would be popular so I had my alarm set and my schedule clear to pounce as soon as it was open.

Even still, the products were immediately shown as being in other members' carts but I persevered through the lagging site and kept refreshing until one of my products popped up as available and I snagged it. All up it took half an hour to check out with my one product but it was totally worth it! Here's the Facebook Live haul video, if you can call it that.

Free stuff is good, bonus free things are even better. If you can't or won't watch the video, let me break it down. Not only did I receive the mascara but some Dermal Hand Balm (which was excellent timing as my husband is currently suffering chafed hands from cycling in the cold weather) and some travel sized shampoo and conditioner which will be coming with me on my next trip, wherever that may be.

Now, let's talk about the mascara.

This stuff is much hyped and while I am cautious about buying into it these days, I figured a $10 outlay for a product retailing at $42 was a sensible enough investment.

ALERT: I've just seen it selling on Catch of The Day for $29 so I would advise you to get right on board that train if you're keen. Catch of The Day sells legit stuff, no fakes. As well as a lot of your drugstore type brands, they've currently also got stuff by NARS, Becca, The Balm, Real Techniques and more. I had no idea about this until I googled for the They're Real RRP so this could get dangerous I am almost certainly going to buy the Real Techniques eye set. Come on, five RT brushes for $29, I'd be a fool not to.

You can see me apply it in the video above.

As an added bonus, products received from the Beautorium qualify for bonus reward points if they are reviewed and posted within a set timefrane, setting you up nicely for your next round of Beautorium shopping in November.

Are you a Beauty Heaven member? Did you get anything from the Beautorium this round?
