Beautorium Goodies! (Haul)

This post is more for my Aussie readers... I've honestly been so excited to post this, I've been waiting on this event to happen for months! ^^

You may have, or may not have heard of Beauty Heaven, but it is an Australian website where people can read and share thoughts as well as review all things related to 'beauty'. 

Beauty Heaven also has a reward system for members to redeem products with points earned from reviewing products and participating in their forums. It's called Beautorium, and I love it! 

I have been a member since last year, so I have been accumulating points for a while now and I think I've reviewed just about every cosmetic I own! :O

All you have to pay is $9.95 for shipping (for 4+ items, or $4.95 for less than 3) and you can grab as much as you want! As long as you have the points of course.


We got to window shop before Beautorium officially opened and the three items that I REALLY wanted were the Braun Epilator, VS Sasson Wave Envy Styler and the Marc Jacobs Daisy Perfume.

I didn't get them.

It opened at 12:00pm (on the dot) on Thursday a few weeks ago, and I got onto the computer at about 12:05............... and I was actually able to get those three items in my cart! I was ecstatic... BUT then at like 12:10, the perfume went out of stock so I had to manually remove it from my cart and since the site was so slow (because of all the people on), by the time I removed the perfume, the hair styler went out of stock.... so I had to remove that and wait for it to load, and by the time I removed that- THE EPILATOR WAS OUT OF STOCK. I was going crazy!

It was so frustrating because since so many people were online at the same time, the site was sloooow. A heap of the other items I wanted ended up getting out of stock too whilst in my cart (the site was seriously slow)... I didn't even get any of the Picture Polish nail polishes I had my eyes on! 

I almost cried! I was freaking out and I was still in class, and the teacher was annoying me to do some uni course thing, and omg- it was so hectic! 

I was kind of annoyed because I had the items in my cart already... if only I checked out sooner or something! But since I wasn't in the best mood, I ended up splurging and grabbing a whole heap of stuff which was kind of stupid. But when I got home, I realised that most of the stuff I got were things I needed or didn't have so I guess it was alright.

That was starting to turn into more of a rant... woops! So here's what I got my hands on:

From left to right:
Dove Invisible Dry Anti White Marks Roll-on Deodorant - RRP $5.47
Dove Heat Defence Therapy Hear Activated Protect & Shine Mist - RRP $8.41

The prices are taken from Beautyheaven's website. 

So in the end, although I didn't get what I originally wanted, I'm still OVERJOYED with my haul! I mean, all that was only ten bux! 

If you're living in Australia then I defs recommend you to sign up to Beautyheaven and start reviewing your products! Not only will you get points, but the BH community are actually really nice people AND that site is loaded with beauty tips, information, competitions, tutorials, reviews... etc! :)
