October 2012 BDJ Box | Unboxing & First Impressions

Okay, before you guys say “Another One?!”, I really thought that I would receive my BDJ box on November because I just subscribed just days ago. I was just about to tell you guys about this so when I received this today, I was like “OMF, WTF?!”. My mama, who already knew I subscribed to BDJ didn’t know that I will be receiving this box right away (so did I actually). She was like, “Did you order something online, AGAIN?!”. She was having some problems carrying the package, because she said it was heavy (and it was!). I was clueless as to what it was, then upon opening, it’s my first BDJ!

BDJBox costs PhP 480 monthly, and they have a couple of subscription packages for you to choose from. The Box contains 5-6 sample to full-sized products handpicked by the BDJ team. Honestly, what enticed me the most are the brands that they have already signed up. Also, compared to Saladbox, I’ve already seen their first box, and I gotta say, I liked it.

Anyway, enough with the babbling, on to the box…

October 2012 | BDJBox
Length : 7.7 inches
Width : 5.6 inches
Height : 2.1 inches

Again, I LOVE the packaging of this box just as much as I love the packaging of the SaladBox. I love the combination of pink and black, plus a touch of lime green. I love it. The box, though it’s smaller than Saladbox, it is however THICKER.

So..let’s open it, shall we?

Calvin Klein Eternity Aqua, 1.2ML Calvin Klein Eternity Aqua, 1.2ML

Calvin Klein Eternity Aqua | 1.2ML
Crafted for the stylish and sophisticated woman, this modern scent is inspired by the ocean breeze

This was the first product that caught my eye. An Eternity perfume sample. I’m very familiar of the Eternity perfume line. My mom’s addicted to Eternity, and to be quite frank, I’m very used to this scent. I’m planning to give this one to her actually. But the mere fact that they included this sample, is a joy. I love the scent actually. It has an ocean-like scent, and it’s very long lasting.

L'oreal Paris Total Repair 5 Daily Repairing Treatment, 50ML
L’oreal Paris Total Repair 5 Daily Repairing Treatment | 50ML
Fights the five signs of damaged hair and make hair stronger, smoother and shinier

I’ve used this product earlier this year and I liked it. Wonder why I stopped? Anyway, I really can’t say anything bad about this product, any reaction about them including this in my BDJbox. Hmm..

SYOSS Repair Therapy Shampoo 100ML & SYOSS Repair Therapy Conditioner 100ML
SYOSS Repair Therapy Shampoo & SYOSS Repair Therapy Conditioner | Both 100ML
The perfect tandem designed to repair damaged, stressed, colored or permed hair

I haven’t tried this brand yet, but the fact that they included a decent amount of these products really impressed me.

Yves Rocher Hydra Vegetal Hydrating Cleansing Milk 50ML
Yves Rocher Hydra Vegetal Hydrating Cleansing Milk | 50ML
Eliminates all traces of makeup and impurities, leaving skin smooth and radiant

I am really curious about this product. Can’t wait to try this right away!

Garnier Skin Naturals Pure Active Multi-Action Scrub 50ML
Garnier Skin Naturals Pure Active Multi-Action Scrub | 50ML
Clears skin imperfections and prevents dirt from further building up

I am not sure about this product since this caters more for those with acne-prone skin (at least that’s what I’ve heard). Also, this contains purifying salicylic acid which basically cures pimples. I might give this to a friend. But, still, I’m impressed with the amount of product they gave me.

L'oreal Lucent Magique Skin Illuminating BB Cream SPF20 5ML
L’oreal Lucent Magique Skin Illuminating BB Cream SPF20 | 5ML
Instantly brightens skin and evens out your skin colour with its lightweight formula.

Never really thought that L’oreal had a BB cream here in the Philippines. I think this is the BB cream that ItsJudyTime once reviewed. This has some micro-beads that will match your skin color the longer you apply it on your face. I will definitely try it and will let you know if I like it or not.

L'oreal Revitalift Intensive Night Repair Essence 5ML
L’oreal Revitalift Intensive Night Repair Essence | 5ML
Stimulates your skin’s natural lifters and revives your skin’s firmness and elasticity

My mama and I have been eying this product have been eying this product for such a LONG time, but it’s so darn EXPENSIVE! This one costs PhP 995 for 30ML of product! But she called it first, she wanted this product as much as I do, so I gave it to her instead. Besides, I can live with just using a moisturizer, and I have lots of ’em as well. My mama was soo happy when she saw this one at my BDJ box. Proof that my PhP 480 was so worth it.

Garnier Skin Naturals Light SPF17 8ML
8 pieces of Garnier Skin Naturals Light SPF17 | 8ML each
Moisturizes, whitens and evens out your skin tone as you protect it from the sun

Just as I though there’s nothing left but brochures, there’s more! 8 pieces of Garnier moisturizers. I was supposed to say “No To foil packets” but dang! 8 pieces! Wow.. I gave 4 of them to my mama, and I kept the other four. Like I mentioned, I have lots of moisturizers.

Overall, I am so happy with my first BDJ box. I am definitely impressed and will definitely continue my subscription to their website. I know that paying three subscription services per month is a bit unconventional so I am thinking of letting go of SaladBox. I am definitely not impressed with SaladBox, considering that it’s already their second box (including their press box), so I might give that up. Besides, I already stopped my automatic payment to their website, so yeah. Also, I love the fact that the items that I received made my mama happy. I also did not expect to receive my box this month, so the fact that they were fast really impressed me as well..

How ’bout you guys? Did you subscribe? Do you like it so far? Do you feel like subscribing? Let me know!

Oh, and I’m sorry about the photos, I wasn’t able to borrow my sister’s DSLR. I’m using my iphone when I took these photos.
