Haul: Best in Beauty 2012

Each year Beauty Heaven holds the Best in Beauty awards, which they kind of classify as a kind of like the Hollywood Hall of Fame, where some of the best beauty legends are honoured within every category from face, body, hair, nails etc. The Best in Beauty awards honour an outstanding product in each category.

The products have been nominated by the beauty industry (with the only rule that the products must be products must be available for review on Beauty Heaven, which is seriously not an issue, as almost every product imaginable is listed on there. 

Hereafter it is up to the members of Beauty Heaven to judge the nominated products through reviews and star ratings, as well as through a ballot where members can award their three favourite nominated products the secret points.

Once the winning products have been announced, fifteen members of Beauty Heaven who have participated in the voting, will also have the chance to win a pack worth over $1600, containing many of the winning products.

I have participated in this every single year since it started, and finally, I have won. And for the past 6 weeks I have been waiting for my pack of goodies to arrive. I am so excited about all the products, as these products are simply the best of the best of beauty products available in Australia.
