This weekend the Beauty Vault will open and over $40,000 of beauty products will be given away.

YES!  It's time to spend those hard earned Beauty Points and score yourself a pretty neat haul of fabulous products from the world's best beauty brands.  For those of you who haven't experienced a Beauty Vault yet, be prepared for a heart-racing start to the weekend on Saturday Morning (9am - 12pm) or a thrilling end to Sunday evening (7pm - 10pm)

Now we don't want to scare you, but things move incredibly fast in the Beauty Vault.  If you want to take part, you need to be ready for a mission.  Trust us, within 15 minutes 80% of the vault will be claimed.

So here's our Top 5 tips for getting the most out of the Beauty Vault experience.

1 - Failing to prepare...

...really is preparing to fail in the Beauty Vault.  Have your laptop fired up ready to go before it opens.  On Saturday log in to your Beauty Review account and wait for 9am.   If you're shopping on Sunday, be ready to go BEFORE 5pm.

As soon as that clock ticks over, click the REWARDS VAULT tab and enter the vault.  (Resist the urge to hit refresh over and over again - when thousands of people do that it will simply slow it down for everyone)

2 - Plan your shop. 

Check out the products beforehand!  The Beauty Vault will open for a preview on Thursday 23rd 6pm - 8pm.

Back in the day savvy shoppers would leave tabs open on the products they wanted and refresh them on the day, quickly adding them to your cart.  This won't work now as the links change when the vault goes live.

Our tip?  Make a list, know which product you want the most and use the category tabs above the countdown clock to locate it quickly!  Once in your cart, you have 5 minutes to finish your shop and check out! (we told you it moves fast!)

3 - Check out the rules of checking out.

You will need to pay postage.  We run The Beauty Vault not for profit, and cover all cost incurred, except the packing and courier charge.  

We only except payment by Mastercard or Visa, due to the nature of the Beauty Vault you cannot pay by bank transfer.

Here's the really important thing.  Once your payment has been approved the system needs 10 seconds to place your order.  If you exit the browser before it redirects you, there's a very good chance your order will not be successfully placed and you won't receive it.

4 - After the madness.

We aim to get your vault goodies packed up and sent off as soon as we can, but with hundreds of orders, our usual work load, and well, life,  it could take up to  21 days.  Please allow this time to elapse before emailing us to find out where it is!

If you have any problems, such as needing to update your shipping address, please email us at with BEAUTY VAULT in the subject line.  

We know it can be easy to jump on FB but with so many posts it can be difficult for us to keep track of everyone and your enquiry could be missed.  To ensure a response, please email us!

5 - Breathe.

We hope everyone gets an enjoyable haul from the Beauty Vault, but remember - its a sale.  Stock is limited and it's just not possible to ensure everyone gets the products they want.  

The Beauty Vault might not go the way you want it to, but don't stress - there's always another one and you'll have even more points to spend!  Don't let it ruin your day, and please, please, please, don't be grumpy at us.  We've been through a few of these now, and we work really hard to stock them full of goodies.  But once the Vault goes live, its very much out of our hands and comes down to fast fingers, and a bit of luck.

So there you go - 5 tips to survive the Beauty Vault - are you ready?  Have you set your alarm yet?!

I survived - and it was fun! Mainly got what I really wanted, so can’t complain! Yay, good times! How did everybody else do?

It was my second time navigating the vault this morning, and this time I found it a lot easier (after following these invaluable instructions). Can’t stress how important being prepared is! I got mostly all the products I was hoping to get, so am pretty pleased overall. Can’t wait to receive my haul now. Will try & be patient :)
