May 2013 | BDJ Unboxing & First Impressions
HOLY MOLY! I forgot that it’s BDJ Box time! I was on my way to the Hello Kitty meet up with my nieces when my mama texted me that I got a package from Viviamo/BDJ and I’m like, “Is it that time of the month already?!” Anyway, it took a couple of hours for me to get home but when I finally opened my package, I literally yelled! I couldn’t wait to dig in through all of the stuff but I really can’t since I have to take some product mugshots first. Oh, and I can barely close it afterwards, the box is overwhelmingly thicker than usual (click here to see how thick the May BDJ box is).
So without keeping you any longer, here goes my unboxing!
Sorry if the photos are a bit frosted, my monitor’s acting funky lately. Ggrr >.<
So, let’s start with the skin care products, shall we?
Garnier Light Gentle Exfoliating Scrub | PhP 140
Full Size: 100 ml (Full Size)
I haven’t used this one yet, but I ‘swatched’ this on my hands yesterday (talk about makeup lingo applying it on beauty products, dah!) a while ago and all I can say is that it’s less abrasive than the St. Ive’s Apricot Scrub Exfoliating Facial Wash. This may be good for those who have sensitive skin but may be an issue for those who are always up for a good exfoliating facial wash. But whatever, like I said, I haven’t tried it yet. Will let you know once I have.
Garnier Light Complete Multi Action Whitening Cream | PhP 75
Full Size: 20 ml (Full Size)
Haven’t tried this one yet but I don’t think this one will suit my skin type since I believe that this is for those who have oily skin. But, I don’t know, let’s see.
Garnier Overnight Whitening Peeling Cream | PhP 229
Full Size: 50 ml (Deluxe Sample Size – 20)
I already received something like this from my November BDJ Box but I gave it away. I didn’t use it because back then I was kinda iffy about peeling creams. But now, I think I’m going to keep this and try it one of these days.
Garnier Pure Active Anti-Imperfections Cooling Roll On | PhP 229
Full Size: 15 ml (Full Size)
I love this because it dries out my plemishes & breakouts really fast, no questions asked. The only thing that I don’t like about this one though is that it’s not too great in removing pimple marks. I’ve observed that it just merely dried out some areas on my skin (pars where I used it) leaving it patchy and eugh. But like I said, if you want something to heal your blemishes, breakouts, pimples, etc. then this is your best bet.
Garnier Oil Clear Self-Heating Mask & Garnier Lightening Peel Off Mask | PhP
Full Size: 2 x 6ml (Full Size)
I don’t have any masks from the Garnier brand, so this looks interesting. However, I might give the ‘Oil Clear Self-Heating Mask’ to a friend/relative who has an oily skin being that I have a really dry skin.
Let’s move on to the makeup products, yes?
Maybelline: The Hyper Curl VolumExpress Waterproof Mascara | PhP 250
This was one of the products I saw upon opening the box, aside from the humongous Garnier facial scrub. Seeing this made me wanna dig through the entire box, but this alone made me scream. I love Maybelline and getting a box filled with Maybelline goodies is OMG, good enough for me.
Oh, and good thing that I didn’t buy this during SM’s 3-Day sale. I was planning to get the same mascara since I wanted to do a review about it, but thanks BDJ for being so awesome!
Maybelline Eyestudio Lumineyes in “Wine” | PhP 599
With this palette alone, your BDJ Box is aready ‘that’ worth it. This palette costs PhP 599 that’s why I didn’t buy it but they’re so creamy & pigmented. I tried it on earlier and I am loving it so much. This item was by the way the third product that I saw from the box.
Maybelline Color Sensational Lasting Lipstick in “Peachy Scene” | PhP 399
I love Maybelline Lipsticks and what’s more is that they gave me a shade that I’ve been trying to collect. Most of the lip products that I have either are loud, hot pinks, dark plums or just plain unwearable in a simple day thing. So I thought I’d go collect a few wearable ones.
Maybelline Baby Lips Color Lip Balm | PhP 89
Another lip product? Yay! I love tinted lip balms, they give your lips color without the heavy ‘overcoated’ feeling and it doesn’t transfer! This should come in handy.
Maybelline Clear Smooth All-in-One Shine Free Foundatioon (To Go) | PhP 199
I love how compact this is. I can easily bring this with me and carry it without the bulkiness that comes with most compact foundations.
Ralph Lauren Big Pony Women #1, #2, #3 & #4 | PhP 4,300
I’ve always said this, that I am not a fan of perfume samples, considering the load of items that I got from my May BDJ, I think I can live with this one. I am also loving the #2 & #4 scents.
So those are all of the items that I got from my May BDJ Box. I am loving all of them so far and I can’t wait to do a review on the makeup products that I got. I really commend BDJ Box for coming up with all of these items in terms of necessity, usage and trends as well. Also, all of the items in this box is well over PhP 1,000+! That is so worth it!
Like I said, I love this box. I don’t know a single beauty junkie who wouldn’t appreciate this box, seriously. If you’re not a subscriber of BDJ and you want one next month, then click here.
