July 2014 | BDJ Box Unboxing & First Impressions

Hi loves! I really apologize for the delay of this post and if you noticed that I’m a bit slacking off, it’s not that. I really wanna blog, it’s just my schedule’s really weird. My time management skills needs tons of work. Anyway, last July 31, they finally shipped the July BDJ box but I don’t have mine yet. Lots of my friends were posting photos of their boxes already and they were so freakin’ huge. I can’t contain my excitement already that I had to peak at some of other people’s unboxing. I know that’s cheating. Apologies.

But anyway, I got mine last August 2, and if you would like to know what my reaction is about each item and about the box in general, then here’s my Unboxing video:

Here are some individual photos, their prices and and everything you need to know about each product.

So those are all of the products that I got for this month. Like I said in the video, for me personally, I didn’t find that the box was worth the wait. But that doesn’t mean however, that I don’t find the contents useful or worth it. I know that I was a bit all over the place in that video, and for that, I apologize. I’m still adjusting. Anyway, I still like some of the contents of this box and I like that I’ll be able to use them. But it didn’t wow me. For something that you anticipated and waited for a bit longer than usual, I actually thought it was something that would exceed (or at least meet) my expectations. But that’s just me.

Now here’s the computation of the products:

Pink Sugar Fine Fragrance Mist
Celeteque Back Acne Spray
Vitress Hair Repair
Vitress Heat Protect
Hygienix Hand Gel
Hygienix Heat Protect
Nivea Pure Effect Exfoliating Wipes
Keratin Complex Travel Valet Care Kit
Enchanted Eyeshadow Palette

PhP 299
320
75
75
45
40
139
495
199
T O T A L                                                      PhP 1,607

Please note that all of the products listed above are those which are full-sized. I did not include those which are in travel/sample sizes (except for the Keratin Complex because I believe you can buy it like that. For the Nivea Antiperspirant, there’s no price indicated on how much the travel size is. If you know, feel free to tell me through the comments below).

    It’s huge! I am not sure whether they have just changed their box size or if this is just for this month. Well, whatever it is, it’s still a BDJ Box and for me, it is a present box for me whenever it arrives. Hehe. I was a bit disappointed since almost all of them are drugstore products. I think this box is made for the skin care and hygienix peeps. Sana nagdagdag sila ng make up, because I think almost of their subscribers are beauty blogger and want make ups.. And yung make up is nasa last BDJ box pala. Double Another thing, medyo hindi ako nabonggahan. Kasi before, ang original price pag pinagsasama sma yung products na nasa box is 3k above, and this one is only 1k. Though sulit na din kasi you only pay for 500+, but yea, parang may kulang sa box and IDK what is it, haha. Anyways, I heard that the nivea exfoliating wipes is a good product to try. Have you also subscribed in saladbox and glamourbox before? Ang dami ng box ngayon, would you recommend subscribing with the other two boxes? Anyways, I still love BDJ and thank you for sharing your thoughts. Pareha tayo Ms. Yette! Hehe. Godbless you, till your next post!

    • Me too! I can’t put my finger on it but there’s definitely something missing in this box. I wasn’t as disappointed but I just find that it’s lacking something. I don’t mind not having makeup products but I just want it to have that ‘Wow’ effect. Regardless if it does or doesn’t have makeup. This did not excite me one bit. The size of the box did but the products didn’t. Of course they’re useful, and that I am thankful for. But it’s just not something you would expect from BDJ.

      Yes I have subscribed to all three boxes. Glamourbox is good but they’re not doing the monthly thing anymore. I was supposed to subscribe to their current box but it’s for moms and babies so I wont have any use for it. Frankly, if you’re considering to subscribe to Saladbox, I urge you to read unboxing/reviews about them. They’re boxes are (very) disappointing. Some aren’t but you can count them by hand. Sorry to say that but you go read some reviews and tell me what you think. I was subscribed to them before then I left, then I resubscribed then I found out that it was right for me to leave.

      BDJ & Glamourbox are still the best

  • ooohh BDJ boxes are getting diverse, since It’s been months that their boxes contain make-ups/beauty products, and now they have like a basic girl survival kit. but like what you said, it was some kind of uhm will not make me happy but will make me satisfied somehow. Though the eyeshadow palette is somehow out of place lol since those products, you can put them all in the bathroom, kulang nalang sabon
    I have back acne can I have that spray? lol jk can you update if it’s effective when you gave that to your friend? been looking for a backne product for a while now, and I still can’t decide what to buy because dermatologists recommend really expensive products, I hope celeteque’s okay it’s affordable.

    • Haha, true. Sabon nalang talaga kulang and probably tooth paste

  • BDJ box never fails to impress. I always see a lot of stuff from their boxes. Can’t wait for my August box na tuloy! hehehe
    Random Beauty by Hollie

    • Aww, I don’t have an August box But yay for you!

  • The box indeed has a lot of stuff!:) Totally packed! I wish though they had more nail products!:) I miss those!

    • I know! I miss those too!

  • abegaill villacruz

    It has a lot, but as you said, it’s not worth the wait. Glad that I didn’t subscribe for the July Box. Anyway, everything was useful, but what I like the most was the Bacne Spray. I’ve been using that for 2 months now and it’s effective for me. Aww, I’ll miss your unboxing.

    • That’s nice to know. @awkwardkim:disqus, you might want to take note of this. She said the bacne spray was effective.

  • I think the contents are so-so, but they’re very useful, though. It’s a shift from the usual box that contains mostly cosmetics and skin care stuff. The huge box it came with is exciting but there should always be a low expectation on this kind of subscription box ’cause it might surprise you or fall short to your expectation.

    • I agree. Very well said.

  • i wish they give some hint what’s inside the box before subscribing.. im waiting for cosmetics. hehe

    • I’m actually okay if they didn’t have cosmetics in each box, but these are just grocery items and it kinda defeats the purpose of subscribing in a beauty box. But that’s just my opinion tho.

  • RebelSweetHrt

    This box has a little bit of everything, though I have seen better contents in the previous boxes.

  • nicole Paler

    I dunno if the term bigger is better for the July box.. but I guess the theme for the july box is somehow similar to colbie calliat’s song “Now”…

    I felt so bad when I saw unboxing pics of this months box how I wish I subscribed earlier.. Maybe because the quantity of the products they included in it was more than the usual. I love the Nivea stuffs. Can’t wait to September’s box!

  • MissApriil

    Oh wow, box this month seems okay for the subscription price. Though I still haven’t jumped into the bandwagon of this monthly subscription, I do enjoy seeing fellow bloggers rave over their boxes!

  • Claude Klaire Casenas

    Omgeee Thankful to find your Blog HIHIHIHIHI :’>

    Claude from http://fashionickness.blogspot.com/

    • Thanks, Claude. Hope you enjoy my blog

  • I think the biggest score in that box is the Envie coupon. You could always get the others (except Keratin Complex, etc.) at a grocery store or even get samples from Sample Room! Medyo blah lang talaga yung box na ito, I think most people expect beauty/cosmetic products from BDJ Box kasi. AHH, I hope their August box is way better than this because that’s gonna be my first BDJ Box ever! Heee

    • I agree. I find this box way ordinary compared to their other boxes. It’s okay if I don’t get cosmetics, as long as I get products that I can usually find in groceries, etc. But that’s just my opinion.

      I feel bad that I wasn’t subscribed in their Aug box. I subbed to their Sept box tho

  • whoa the box is huge, i only subscribed to bdj a few times but they were packed in a smaller box. its actually not that appealing to look at when its overly crowded with products. btw i ike your accent yette!

    • Haha. Thanks, Shayne! :*

  • Kleah
