April 2013 | BDJ Box Unboxing & First Impressions
Anyway, I got this box earlier today, and I was so excited to open it and look at what I got. (despite cheating and looking at some unboxing pics at BDJ’s Facebook fanpage, lol) I got lost in the excitement to the point that I almost forgot to take some unboxing pics, so if I may, here are stuffs that I got from my April BDJ.
Avon SSS Glutathione Lotion with Marula (Full Size)
250 ml – PhP 350
This was the first thing that I noticed when I opened the box. (and at the unboxing photos that I saw as well) I was like “That’s what I’m talking about! Yes!” If you remembered my latest unboxing post from a different subscription box, I got two deluxe samples of these, which was kinda okay, but kinda confusing as well. I won’t delve into that further, but f you want to know what I’m talking about, you may click here. But for this full-sized product alone, I give this box a thumbs up
Celeteque Hydrolized Moisturizing Mist (Full Size)
120 ml – PhP 349
I still have mine and I love it. I only use it when I’m about to go somewhere else, because it makes my makeup stay intact for the rest of the day. I use it before I apply my toner & moisturizer (or sometimes I use it alone, especially if I’m in a hurry). I don’t really use it when I have makeup on or when I don’t feel clean or whatever, because I feel sticky after spraying it, I don’t know, maybe it’s just me, lol. Regardless, I love this product. I was thinking of repurchasing it but thanks BDJ
Revlon Nail Art Neon in Pink Glow (Full Size)
7.68 ml – PhP 375
I’m not really sure about this because they have the same size of brush considering that it’s for nail art so I guess, I’ll just figure it out (unless you guys know how to use this nail polish? Then please let me know ). But you guys know that I’m a nail polish addict, and what’s more is that it’s from Revlon and I love Revlon nail enamels, so I’ll figure it out for sure.
Bifesta Age Care Cleansing Lotion (Sample Size – 30 ml)
300 ml – PhP 419
I have the one for dry & sensitive skin and I am loving it so far. Though it takes time to remove stubborn waterproof mascaras, I still love it because if you want to fully get rid of mascara & eyeliner traces or boo-boos, it’s what I this is something you can rely on. It’s also what I use to remove my makeup without looking like a greaseball afterwards. I am definitely looking forward to try this one.
(Sample Size – 15 ml)
30 ml – PhP 799
I’m not really into whitening products, unlike most Filipino women out there, I don’t know. Probably because it’s not really something you’ll see here in our house (except maybe recently?). But I sure would like to give this a try.
Garnier Light Intensive 3 in 1 Whitening Essence Mask (Full Size)
19 ml – PhP 89
I am definitely excited to use this. Unfortunately, I just applied a Chocolate Masque yesterday so I don’t think applying this mask right away is advisable. I’ll probably end up using this next week
Goody Slide Proof Pins And Elastics (Full Size)
2 clips, 2 elastics – PhP 449.75
I am finding it hard to believe that two pieces of bobbie pins and two pieces of hair ties will cost me PhP 449.75. I doubt if these hair pieces will scream Goody when I use it, kidding. But seriously, I grew up staying as far away as I can from the Goody section of SM Dept. Stores (although I did buy a brush from them quite recently because I want something that wont eat my hair whenever I use it, lol) because I don’t think that their prices are quite justifiable. I’d rather treat myself with a good frap from Starbucks or a new lipstick instead
Oh, these babies will go straight to my bag, btw
Selena Gomez Eau De Parfum (Perfume Sample)
100 ml – PhP 2.950
I am loving the smell of this. I’m definitely going to get one after I finish the mini sample (which might be a bit too soon, lol).
BONUS ITEM!! Candi Nail Polish Remover Wipes (Full Size)
30 pads – PhP 65
These are acetone free wipes, and knowing that I am such a glitter addict, I’m gonna need a nail polish remover with acetone. I like the idea of it being portable, but who knows, I might bring it with me somewhere.
Vouchers, Brochures, Stickers (Full Size)
Vouchers from Belletoday, Bioessence, Goody | Brochure from Avon | Stickers from BDJ
Those are all of the items that I got from my April BDJ Box. As you can see, they started giving us a variety of brands & products again. They no longer gave us an exclusive box from a specific brand, which may surprise others especially those who just subscribed to them, or those who had really high expectations from BDJ. I’m not saying I’m not one of them, I am. I mean, I always have high expectations when it comes to my monthly BDJ boxes. Anyway, to me, this box is ‘just right’. Just right, because it suits my needs and it gave me what I thought I didn’t need or want. It also gave me some things that I might be interested to try, hence the function of a beauty box. It’s not a complete let down, and I’m not disappointed with it. I got what I paid for, and the products, even though it’s not a brand-specific/exclusive box, was (I believe) carefully selected. Although I really wish they included a lip product, because I got one in my Jan, Feb & March boxes, kidding!
Anyway, all in all, I still love this box. I’m in love with the variety of products that this box had to offer. Of course, I was expecting a brand-specific box (again), but when I finally gotten through all of the items in this box, I eventually caved and fell completely in love with this box.
Will I subscribe next month? Of course. I have no plans on cancelling my subscription.
Is it worth it? Definitely
Wanna try it? Click here to subscribe to their June box. Their May boxes are all sold out.
So again, those are my thoughts regarding the April box. How about you? Did you subscribe to BDJ this month? Did you like it so far? Do you like these items? What’s the item that you like most from the April box? Let’s talk!
