Because why not?

Blogmas: Beauty Heaven Best In Beauty Prize.

18 December 2013
I'm quite torn about posting this. I don't want to come across as though I'm showing off but I know there are people who are going to want to see this, those people are just like me in the sense that we get a lot of enjoyment out of large hauls and other peoples joy. Also I freakin' love checking out photos of these prizes.

Being a member of Beauty Heaven is pretty awesome, we get to review products that we have purchased and are rewarded with points, with those points we can participate in the Beautorium and get awesome goodies for just a small postage fee. The forum community is beyond words when it comes to friendliness, advice and just general companionship when you're having a lazy day/night in and the crew behind the scenes bring awesome opportunities for product trials, competitions, helpful articles and are really on the ball with what's current and upcoming.

Every year they host a few massive competitions, the one I'm going to be talking about today are the Best In Beauty Awards. Members get to vote for their all time favourite products from a list of participating brands in all sorts of categories ranging from makeup to mum's and bub's stuff. Once the votes are in they are tallied up and the winners are announced. A few weeks after we know which products were deemed the best by members of the site we then find out which member are going to receive one of each winning product, these prizes are highly coveted and none of us expect to win them but secretly hope that one day our name will be published on the website and we will begin the painful wait for our 'Big Box'.

In mid November, the day after my birthday, names of the winning members were published and I nearly died when I saw my name on the computer screen.

So without further ado, lets take an up close look at what this contains..

So as you can imagine I'm feeling pretty spoilt at the moment, I've won a few things here and there throughout my life but nothing quite this big.

I won't be keeping everything for myself, some things I already own and there isn't much point in me having two wax kits or multiples of a lip product I don't even use. The love will be spread!

I'd like to say a big thank you to Beauty Heaven, and I strongly suggest that if you aren't already a member you join up now because it's most definitely my favourite place on the web!

Is there anything here you would like to see reviewed? I'm not sure where to start really!

All Products were purchased by myself and I'm in no way affiliated with any of the companies mentioned unless otherwise stated. Links provided are for shopping examples only, I have personally purchased from some (not all) of these online stores but I highly recommend researching before buying.

  1. What an awesome prize pack, congrats!! Its like xmas has come early for you :)

  2. Wow that is awesome! You won't need any new products for awhile!

  3. Thanks ladies :) Christmas certainly did come early and while I'm drowning in products now I will be totally honest and say that it probably won't stop me from buying more beauty products haha.

  4. *jaw drop* what an amazing prize!!! congrats love ^_^

  5. GHD is such a poor excuse for a company, my gosh...

    1. Yes, a ghd styling product with a RRP of $24.00 is a poor substitute for a $300 ghd eclipse.
      I've heard really good reviews and recommendations on the MUK straightener being better than the GHD, so I'll not be buying GHD products in the future.

    2. I think the saddest thing is that the styling product isn't even impressive, I'm praying they have changed the formula because last time I tried it it found a new home in the bin.

  6. Great blog post and what an amazing array of products!

  7. So many products, Congratulations, Its almost a year's supply :)
