My RY.com.au Shopping Experience *

A little while ago I was invited to pick up a few goodies from the Aussie website RY for review. As I'm always on the lookout for websites that are Australian based, I wanted to share with you all my experiences with ordering from them, as I have since made another order with them!

A little bit about RY before I get into the nitty gritty details! RY stands for Recreate Yourself, which is a perfect statement to make for a website who specialises in beauty! RY are helping to close the price difference gap here in Australia by offering super competitive prices on products that are usually frustratingly expensive!

I made my order on Wednesday afternoon, and the package arrived on Thursday! Now that's service! RY offers free shipping on all orders over $99, but shipping for anything under that price is a reasonable $6.95. They also offer express shipping - not that I needed it!

The packaging was also really secure, this box was filled to the brim with packing peanuts, and the items were individually wrapped up in paper to ensure they remained safe during transit! I was impressed!

I was also excited to receive a few samples, both from pretty good brands too! RY also offers a pretty awesome competition, in which one lucky customer will be chosen at random to have their entire order refunded to them - so they get their goodies for free! Yes please!

I ordered three products, which equalled up to about $100 so I was entitled to free shipping! I ordered the Clarins Pore Minimizing Serum, a set of Tweezerman Tweezers, and Essie polish in Mint Candie Apple! (Stay tuned for reviews!) I found that RY had a fairly good selection of products, especially skincare, and products I didn't expect to see such as the Tweezerman Tweezers! You could seriously spend hours on the website just making a wishlist!

RY also offers a Price Match Guarantee. Basically that means that if you order something on RY, and you find it cheaper on another Australian website, the price will be matched! For more information, you can read the entire policy of the Price Match Guarantee here.


RY also offers a loyalty program, in that you earn points for every dollar you spend - for more information you can check out this page.

Overall, I was really happy and impressed with the service I got from RY. A confirmation email when the order was put through, and the order was sent, was sent directly to me, and the website and account page is really easy to navigate so you can check your order process at any time!

I was also really happy with how quickly my order arrived! This might be due to the fact they are in the same state as me (I'm not sure) but in saying that, they obviously dispatch their items quickly, which is a huge plus!

RY is definitely going to be one of my favourite shopping destinations from now on - the prices are competitive, the shipping is super quick (and cheap) and the customer service as a whole is excellent!

  2. I've been wandering about the service from RY after seeing so many features from bloggers so it's good to know that you had a positive experience. Can't wait to hear about what you think of that serum! It sounds like something my skin would love :)

    1. I had been wondering also, I'd seen heaps of promos about them! But they're pretty good, so I'm happy! And I'll definitely do a post and let you know what I think ;) xx

  3. They sound like a really great website! I've been tempted to order some clarins bits but with shipping it's pretty much the same price as instore. Nonetheless they do seem to stock a lot of brands, and for a slightly cheaper price it seems.
