First up, I would like to clearly state that this is NOT a sponsored post. I was approached by the team at RY.com.au who asked if I would like $50 to spend on their website. As a keen shopaholic and someone who is always on the lookout for a new beauty website, I jumped at the chance and thought I would share my shopping experience with you.
Recreate Yourself or RY.com.au is Australia's largest online store stocking a range of skincare, haircare and cosmetics. Brands like the Balm, GHD, Clarisonic and Anastasia Beverly Hills are all available through RY and yes, they are genuine! If you sign up to their mailing list, you can get $5 off your first order and orders over $99 ship free. My order took a lightning fast 2 days to arrive, which I think is because I'm just around the corner (RY is based in Burleigh Heads).
Now for the exicitng part: my order! It took me a VERY long time to decide what to order because RY stock a really large range and I wanted everything. Eventually, I settled on these.....
Mary-Lou Manizer by the Balm ($34.95)* - I have been lusting after the Lou Manizers for ages and while Cindy-Lou was originally at the top of my wishlist, a little research showed that Mary-Lou look a lot more "me". I was a little worried about it shattering in transit but my order was really well packaged and Mary arrived in one beautiful piece.
Ardell Dual Lash Applicator ($6.29)* - I've very recently decided that false lashes are the best thing ever but I've been struggling to apply them properly and get them to sit flush with my natural lashes. This little doodad is perfect for applying lashes easily and the handy little clamp end is amazing for gently pressing your false lashes to your real ones. There's also a little rubber end to press down those pesky ends that never want to stay down!
Speaking of lashes, I also decided to add another pair to my collection and the Lash Me Sarah Lashes ($7.96)* caught my eye. I like false lashes but I don't like them to look too over-the-top. This pair is perfect for adding volume and length without looking over-done.
I can definitely recommend RY.com.au for any beauty lover looking for a bargain. I was really impressed with the service, I got an immediate confirmation of order, my tracking details were sent straight away, my order shipped in record time and was neatly and securely packaged. I also got a few freebies thrown in which is always nice.
Have you bought anything from RY.com.au?
