September 2014 | BDJ Box Unboxing & First Impressions
Hello everyone! It is time yet again for another BDJ Unboxing. Just like my August Faves, I was supposed to do a video unboxing but my eyes have been really hurting the past few days and they sometimes turn really red especially when I’m really tired (which is getting a bit frequent lately) so I had to pass filming a video. Even looking at the monitor makes me squint multiple times considering that my contrast settings are really low. (It’s also one of the main reasons why I was wearing sunnies when I took my latest selfie – follow me at IG @yettezkiedoodle, lol :P)I might go to the optometrist really soon.
Anyway, sorry to let you in on that. Just thought I’d let you know why I haven’t been around these days. On to the unboxing! Yaaaayyy! (My exaggerated attempt to make you sound really enthusiastic about my really delayed post -_-)
This month’s BDJ box is called Beauty Innovations and they are naming it so because majority of the products that are provided here are new releases from really established brands. Some of them are also reformulated and repackaged. So let’s see what’s inside, shall we?
Godiva Cleansing Kit
Godiva Whitening Facial Wash (80ml; Php 85)
It low foaming soap-free formula is infused with Licorice Root Extract
to gently cleanse your skin, leaving it with a softer, smoother glow.
Godiva Whitening Toner (60ml; Php 60)
Get longer-lasting whiter skin this Toner formulated with Glabridin
to effectively even out skintone and get rid of stubborn
My mama used to really like this brand. I might keep it for later use or give it to her. I have a ton of skin care stuff already and I honestly can’t keep up.
Pond’s Dewy Rose Gel
10g; Php 150
Dewy, soft skin is now easy to achieve with Pond’s Institute’s newest formulation, Flawless White Dewy Rose Gel. This whitening gel is infused with Rose Lumiere Serum that goes deep into the skin to lighten dark spots and smoothen pores outside giving you that rosy glow you’ve always wanted.
I an actually impressed with its claims so I might give this a try considering that I’ve been getting a lot of dark spots lately
Cream Silk Daily Treatment Conditioner
180ml ; Php 134
This product combines the benefits of a weekly hair treatment with the speed of a daily conditioner. It’s formulated with a Vita-boost Complex that deeply penetrates the hair strand to nourish it from within. Use it in place of your regular conditioner to pamper your hair every day. With 4 variants to choose from, you’re sure to find one that addresses your hair concerns.
I haven’t used Cream Silk for some time now so I really like that these are included here. Plus, they’re two so I can give the other one to my mama
Dove Intense REpair Daily Hair Vitamin
6ml x 6 Capsules; Php 75
Lock in nourishment for your hair the whole day by using these newly launched hair vitamins inflused with Vitamin E and botanical extracts from Dove. Packaged in individual capsules to keep the formula fresh, simply cut out the end to squeeze the contents on your palms and apply to the middle section of your hair down to the tips for long lasting shine and smoothness.
Been trying this for a couple of days and I really loved it. Makes my hair really soft and smooth. It’s not heavy compared to other hair vitamins I’ve tried. I really do love it
Jergen’s Moisture Pack
Jergen’s Ultra Healing Lotion (100ml; Php 88)
Be the first to try this newly re-launched body lotion that’s formulated with a Hydralucence Blend to go deep beneath skin’s surface to heal dryness at the source.
Jergen’s Daily Moisture (200ml; Php 153)
Infused with moisturizing Silk Proteins and a Citrus Extract this reformulated lotion leaves the skin looking and feeling silky and smooth all day long.
I’ve been loving Jergen’s ever since I was a teenager. My mama loves it, my sister loves it. This brand has been with my family for years. That’s why when I saw this in my box, it actually made me smile. (despite owning one too many lotions) It’s nice to be reminded of the things you’ve grown fond of using.
Beach Hut Clear Spray
180ml; Php 390
Gone are the days of having to spread the sticky messy sunblock on your skin! Stay longer under the sun without worrying about those harmful rays. It provides better, easier and even application than your ordinary sunblock lotion. Just spray and go.
I’m really looking forward to use this when we go to the beach
EDIT: Just found out through a reader of mine that this will expire on January 2015. I checked mine as well and it does say so on the packaging. I guess mine wont be able to make it on my beach escapade
FS Single Eyeshadow in ‘Olive Tree’
4g; Php 150
These easy to blend powder shadows from FS are a great way to build up your eyeshadow collection. They come in varying finishes – shimmer, matte, satin & glitter that you can mix and match to create the look that you want. Their silky textures make it easy to blend on your eyes and also prevents product fallout.
I like FS cosmetics and I’ve tried one of their eyeshadows (as contour) and I really liked it. It has a decent pigmentation and it doesn’t give you tons of fallouts.
FS Gel Liner in ‘Brown’
5ml; Php 299
Say goodbye to your pencils and hello to this gel based eyeliner from FS! It’s soft on the lids and rich in definition, so you can easily define your eyes. It comes in a 5ml elegant glass bottle and also comes with a free brush! It glides on smoothly helping you effortlessly achieve the look you want.
I don’t have brown gel liners, and I actually liked FS gel liners before, so this is definitely something new.
PAC Make Over Voucher
(Worth Php 1,500)
Get a brand new look from the PAC Makeup Experts!
So those are the products that I got from this month’s BDJ Box. I must admit, when I first opened this box, I was like “Again?” because I actually thought this box was pretty similar to their July BDJ Box. But when I finally got in to the bottom of the box and when I finally read everything about it, I actually loved it. Though I wont be able to use all of them at the same time, I still think that all of the products would be pretty useful. It would definitely be refreshing to try a lot of new things from really trusted & established brands.
Anyway, here’s the computation of the entire box. (Spoiler Alert – The box is totally worth it! ^_^)
