Topic: Health & wellbeing / menstrual cups

The name party in my pants is sucking me in to go look. sigh.


I’m using this thing for real! Had a tiny leak yesterday at work, but aside from that it was pretty good! Today will be a bit more testing – heavier + sport.

It’s such a fun name, haha. I found another US company that has a “free sample” liner called Luna Pads, you just need to pay $5 shipping and it didn’t change the price when I put in my address either. You can’t pick the size or print but it’ll either be a 6" or 8" and allof the prints are so cute.

With Party In My Pants it’s $8 international shipping for the “freebie” but you get to pick the size & material (cotton or flannel) but not the print. I figured why not since both companies charge over $10+shipping normally.

That’s great to hear! Was the leak from being too full or just getting used to positioning it? My monthly visitor is due in 4 days and I’ll probably start wearing my cup before then so I don’t have to worry about waiting for it to start – no more wearing pads just in case! :D

From not quite opening it… Lucky I did have a preventive liner on, phew! I slept with it last night, removed, rinsed (under super hot water – which I know is probably unnecessary) and reinserted within a minute in the shower, so so practical! I’m lucky in the fact that the work bathroom has a sink inside, so can rinse it quickly there and keep going. I’m finding it a lot easier to insert during my period…

I had a look at party in my pants, but their postage + prices made it $50 for just three pads :( I know etsy have a fair few makers, so that will be my next look after luna pads. The name reminds me of the scene in No Strings Attached (pun in this thread is oh so relevant ;) ’it’s like a crime scene in my pants!’

Haha I just watched that video – so funny :P I’m a bit like that now as I have a viral infection, i’m forcing everyone to make me food & let me nap.

I went through my bookmarks & found some more cloth pad sellers that are highly recommended: Pink Lemonade Shop on etsy & County Cloth Creations on etsy. There’s also an Australian site called Cloth Pad Shop which sells lots of different cloth pads & cups & other accessories, they get good reviews. Also a good option if anyone wants to order a cup from Australia so they don’t have to wait forever to receive it.

I’m going to put in an order with Trojacek Farms on etsy tonight for some liners. I’m still waiting on my “freebie” liners from the US, the luna pad one hasn’t shipped so I hope there’s no issues with the international shipping :S But I got my first order of cloth liners off etsy today! They’re so pretty & comfy! I think that next time i’ll have to get liners which snap to 2 inches wide as my current 2 & 1/2 inch ones have some excess fabric that hangs down (for reference, i’m a size 10 in undies)

And you’re so lucky that you have a nice work bathroom, mine is always crowded full of people & quite messy, and one of the toilets is kind of nasty. But luckily I don’t think i’ll ever have to change my cup when i’m at work as I try not to work long shifts.

Topic: Talkback / Beautorium April 2014 Haul

I’m wrapped with my Beautorium order! Thank you BH for such an amazing experience (as always), fast delivery and the generous samples. I’ve never tried false eyelashes in my life and I’ve often wondered what they’d be like, so I’m bound to have fun with those!

So I’m not the only one that has never tried false lashes! They seem way too hard to apply haha. Might have to give them a go.

Haha! Sam91 and CherryBlossom, perhaps we should all post photos of our first false eyelash application attempt. I think I will look pretty stupid even if I apply them correctly….some people pull big lashes off beautifully but I think my eyes and face are the wrong size/shape to handle that much lash!

Thanks BH I got the stuff I ordered and the extra samples! At first I was confused since I thought the package would be smaller but it was a nice surprise :) Though the chubby stick was a different shade to what I ordered I think

Here is my haul! Feeling very spoilt! For some reason my parcel with the wipes in it was really wet. I couldn’t tell that anything had leaked and it didn’t smell. So odd, but everything was usable other than that! :) Thanks BH!

Topic: Skincare / La Mav

Hello, ladies

My name is Lucy and I am Marketing Assistant and Customer Care Agent at LaMav.

To begin with , I am super happy to hear that some of you really liked the products!
Your feedback is highly appreciated!

As for the breakouts, that some of you experienced, let me give you more information what might be the cause.
As most of our products are very concentrated (especially the serums) it is important to use the right amount (which, of course, depends on the skin, as we all react in a different way to cosmetics).
Regarding the serums, as a start I would suggest you to use 1-2 drops and then if needed increase the amount, adding 1 drop more with every application, until you find the right mount for you.
Anther reason some of you have broken out might be that the product was just not suitable for your skin type. I welcome you to reach me at lucy@lamav.com so we can pick a product that would suit your skin type and I can send you samples to try it before buying full-size.

Also, currently we are holding out largest giveaway so far “Win a $500 La Mav Shopping Spree” and you are all more than welcome to enter! :)

For more information you can check our recent blog post:

PS: If you have any questions,doubts, inquiries – feel free to reach me at lucy@lamav.com

Yeah i had a problem with the product i received as well.
I placed an order for the Plant Eve Rose Hydration Mist with Antioxidants (780 points) and instead i got the People for Plants Mist Toner (300 points) : \

The rest of the freebies were amazing though, just a bit disappointed that i didn’t receive the product i really wanted to try. I emailed support just then to see what could be done.

Whoa that’s a big point difference!

I just noticed that the points for Beautorium products were reduced by 25%. This is awfully tempting…

I am annoyed, disappointed and happy about this all at the same time! Haha.

I ordered the bhave Riot Control Serum last week for 980 points (because I really wanted to try it) and now it’s 735 damn! :( But this reduction in points also means I could get the bhave Deep Intense Conditioning Masque which I also wanted but didn’t have enough points for at the time.
It was 630 and I only had 625, so I just commented on a few articles I intended on reading so I could get it haha

To snap up two products worth over $40 for $4.95 each is really exciting but I really wish I either waited and got both at the same time for less points and only have to pay for postage once or just not got anything at all like I intended to and kept my points for next time :/

But lucky you got your product! Don’t stress :)

Topic: Fragrance / oil diffusers

Ozsale.com.au have Ultrasonic Aroma Diffusers on sale at the moment until Sunday. They are reduced from about $120 down to about $50, plus you have $10 postage. They are located in the section called Home & Living. This is about the third time I’ve seen this brand of diffusers there. I have no idea what the quality is like.

Topic: Make-up / Eye primer

I use Nars eye primer, and its the best. I have oily eyelids, so i apply this before i apply my eyeshadow … And viola! No more oily lids and my eyeshadow doesn’t crease, and last longer. I cant remember how much though, but i think it’s really worth it.

Thank you BH staff for my awesome Beautorium orders which I received today … very fast considering I live in a regional town. I just emailed the Beautorium email address because I think my order may have been mixed up with someone else’s. My first order was the Abeeco Miracle Manuka Cream and the Kosmea Radiance 24/7 Youth Boost. I did not receive the 24/7 Youth Boost, but instead received a Lady Jayne Bun Styler. My second order of Kosmea Rescue Body Cream and Replenishing Moisture Cream was correct. I am sure that the staff have been overwhelmed processing all of our orders!

Hmmm……will I or won’t I…….the hair styler is down to 2700 points. I’ve got more than enough points for it. I’ve got a Babyliss straightener, it’s nothing special, just OK. I really like the fact that the Elkie has a stand. Very tempted…..

Rose normally I would say go for it, but this time I say wait till your glosscars prize arrives and see what’s in that first?
Unless there was no straightener in the category then i say go for it LOL

Topic: Fragrance / oil diffusers

I think I will get the one from Essence of Wellbeing website someone put up, or perhaps from Ebay. There seems to be one on Ebay an Australian seller that looks exactly the same as the one on Essence of wellbeing in mornington but about $10 cheaper.

Though i might go for a drive to mornington and buy some oils as well in which case it would work out the same as I wouldn’t be paying for postage.

They sound fantastic from all the feedback :)

Thanks Beautyheaven!!

It’s always exciting to see the hauls but still doesn’t really prepare you for your own haul!
After a long and draining day at training then having to face the crowds at the supermarket before they close for 24 hours (you would think it was at least 1 week!) it was so ace coming home and leaving the shopping for my partner to put away, while i played with my beautorium parcel! :)

Thank you LOTS to all of you for all the chasing up of products you do and everything else that comes with beautorium…. and beautyheaven in general!! xo
