BDJ Box Beauty Social : Primp & Prettify Event
BDJ Box has been a part of my lifestyle ever since it was launched last October, 2012 and I’ve been a fan of them since then. This was my first BDJ Box Beauty Social Event and I really enjoyed meeting tons of new people and seeing some of my co-bloggers/friends as well.
Above is their program line up that the BDJ Box team emailed to us a few weeks prior to the event itself, and as you can see, I was able to get into three “talks”.
1:00 GET REAL WITH THE BDJ BOX BEAUTY MINISTRY
Unfortunately, I was late at the said event and I missed almost half of the said talk (dummy -__-). They were already having their Q&As when I arrived, but from what I’ve gathered, they discussed mostly about basic skincare, hair care and makeup-related topics. I really liked the fact that they were very accommodating when it comes to answering queries from each and every one of the audience. They were very kind and detailed, all of their answers were very informative.
One thing I really wanted to ask them, which luckily someone already asked, was about skin care application/routine. In case you don’t know, I am a night owl. My work is during the night time. Therefore, my skincare regimen is kinda.. well, for lack of a better term.. ‘screwed’. They said that since we are following a different timezone, then we should apply our ‘night’ skincare products at the daytime when we are about to go to sleep. This will enable them to penetrate our skin more when we sleep, since they are well.. meant for using overnight.
After the “talk” we got our designated loot bags (which I will show you at the end of this post) then I met up with my co-blogger/friend, Gen of Genzel Kisses.
We took advantage of the other booths that are surrounding the entire Skydome especially the Photobooth.
TOO COOL FOR SCHOOL BOOTH
Their booth had pretty much like their store’s decoration, you know.. Naked dolls. I find the decoration weird and eccentric for a makeup store, but for some reason, I kinda like it, LOL. Here we got some samples by playing the traditional Korean game called ‘Yutnori’. Sadly, I forgot the name of the sample I got. There was no name in it -__- (my bad :P).
We also get to take pictures using their back drop, holding their signs with sayings such as ‘I Puff You’, ‘Life Is Beautiful Because It’s Short’ & ‘I Am A Cool Girl’.
CELETEQUE & YVES ROCHER BOOTH
These booths will allow you to get your skin diagnosed/tested.
Celeteque experts will help you determine what skin type you have and will determine what skincare product is suited for you. Unfortunately I was not able to have my skin tested. It occurred to me that I had to remove my makeup (or at least a portion) so I backed out.
Yves Rocher, however had a long queue so Gen and I decided to pass.
LUCIDO-L & BIFESTA BOOTH
Experience one of the newest hair styling product that is out in the market today, Lucido-L. They asked us to drop by later that day so that they can curl our hairs but we respectfully declined. Bifesta also gives out free sample products/pouches via a raffle so long as you liked their Facebook fanpage. I got free makeup cleansing wipes.
Hmm.. I wonder if they’re offering samples. Kidding.
Sadly, I wasn’t able to find out since there were also people around their booth, so I kinda hesitated, LOL.
Kidding aside, I love Shiseido, specially their Benefiance line
Find out for yourself if Cure is really worth the hype, with the help of these wonderful ladies. Not only that, you will also get free samples too!
Me, Gen-zel & Jhessica
Featuring their new facial foam, Garnier, also invited their spokesperson/model Georgina Wilson to grace the BDJ event. Unfortunately, I had to leave early. Nevertheless, that didn’t stop us to take pictures at their booth and enjoy their free cocktails!
Try out Revlon‘s latest hair & makeup products at their booth.
It was exactly time for Gen’s ‘talk’ so I decided to decided to take a seat at the benches and that’s when I met several co-bloggers/friends such as Aya of Codename Aya, Ayzee of Chilipina, Iya of From nails to makeup: A never ending obsession and Raych ofThe Beauty Move. I also met some of my readers, which was really flattering and something that I didn’t expect, to be honest.
After the Max Factor topic, Gen, Mhisha (of The Touch Of Yellow) and I still stayed for a while (maybe a couple of minutes or so) then we decided to leave. It was then when we finally met a couple of more friends/bloggers.

Finally met Rattus, who is by the way, always updated with Philippine drugstore makeup. I always drop by her blog & FB page look up what’s new and I must say, if there’s one person to blame why I’m always stranded at the local makeup section at SM Department store, that would be Rattus. Kidding
Anyway, that’s it for my BDJ Box Beauty Social : Primp & Prettify Event experience. Sadly, I wasn’t able to attend the last two talks which was the “Torch Calories without looking like you did” (6:00) and Express Yourself With Maybelline (6:50) because that was already beyond my schedule and I still have work that day.
How about you? Did you attend the 2nd BDJ Box Beauty Social? Did you like it? Did you enjoy? Let me know.
