See you at the BDJ Box Beauty Social: Camp Gorgeous on September 14!

11 Sep

I am a certified Bella. I have supported BDJ Box Beauty Socials from the first one they had in Mall of Asia, the second at SM North Edsa Sky Dome, the third at SM Aura. Fourth time’s a charm, because I am definitely be present again!

I’m counting down the days to the BDJ Box Beauty Social at the Skydome in SM North EDSA on September 14, 2014!camp gorgeous

What is BDJ Box? If ever this is your first time to hear about this (which I doubt), BDJ Box is a beauty product discovery subscription service for women. Brought to you by the makers of the Belle de Jour Power Planner, BDJ Box aims to help every Filipina unbox her own beauty. For P580 a month, subscribers receive a mass-customized box with at least 5-6 of the best beauty products delivered to their doorstep.

As before, I’m still very much excited to try each and every activity booth at the Beauty Social! I just wish that wifi would not be required to join any of the activity. The last time in SM Aura many of the attendees were not able to qualify because of this.

Anyway, here is a complete list of brand partners included:

Yves Rocher, Too Cool for School, Revlon,Max Factor, L’Oreal Paris, Covergirl, Benefit Cosmetics, Real Techniques and Ecotools Brushes, Heroine Make, PAC Cosmetics, Piandre, and Glam Glow.

Shiseido Ultimune Power Infusing Concentrate | BDJ Box 7-day Challenge

6 Sep

Ever had that feeling when you hesitated to try something out, gave in, then find yourself getting addicted to it? This is the same feeling I had when I used the newest product from Shiseido!

Shiseido Ultimune Power Infusing Concentrate

I had a ginormous zit near my left eyebrow and I think that I had an allergic reaction to something I ate or used. I went to Aesthetics Institute of the Philippines (AIP) to avail of the voucher from a previous BDJ Box but they didn’t inject it.

I still used this new Shiseido concentrate all over my face, twice a day for seven days straight. I am just thankful for BDJ Box for letting us sample products to test if they work on us or not.

Unboxing the August 2014 BDJ Box | Luscious Locks

25 Aug

The August BDJ Box for this year is focused on giving our crowning glories a treat, hence the theme – Luscious Locks.

August 2014 BDJ Box Luscious Locks

I don’t mind receiving hair care products lately. I realized that I have not been giving my hair attention. I still use shampoo, conditioner and hair serum. I skip hair masks for months so maybe that’s why my hair feels heavy already.

Though there’s a product repeat on this box, I am still happy about it.

15 Jul

Classes are suspended today and what better way to spend this bed weather than blog? Right? I know I have been not blogging lately due to work but I am really trying to. I still take pictures of products but haven’t really had time to take pictures of actual usage.

But for the BDJ Box 7-Day Challenge, I really tried to document my usage.

Here is a photo collage of the 7 sample sizes that I used for the week.

The BrowHaus Experience | My First Brow Threading

9 Jul

I was torn between using this coupon or not because our family had a trip last weekend of May. Hubby knows me so well that is why he pushed me to go even at night, and he will just meet us up after work. I called Greenbelt 5 for an appointment and I was set for 7pm. I brought my daughter with me and we were supposed to ride a cab. It was drizzling that time and getting a cab was not easy. We waited for 30 minutes, walked toward a main road and waited again. I got impatient and just rode a jeepney and the MRT to get to Ayala station just to get there.

It was a long walk from the MRT Ayala Station to Greenbelt 5. Brow Haus was a bit hard to find in Greenbelt 5 because I think it was in the 4th level. It was beside Studio Fix by Alex Carbonell.

Unboxing the June 2014 BDJ Box

26 Jun

Ever heard of the saying that love is sweeter the second time around? Though I am not really a fan of giving second chances to people because I believe that you have it make it right the first chance you got. Anyway, if its makeup and skin care we’re talking about with chances, I would not cut the wire.

When the June 2014 BDJ Box came, I was happy! Though the box felt light, I found a take two of the Benefit x BDJ Box collaboration! Here are what’s inside:

Porefessional PRO Balm

Fake Up Concealer

Big Easy

Hello Flawless Oxygen Wow

They’re Real Mascara

Unboxing March 2014 BDJ Box | Exclusive BENEFIT Cosmetics Box

9 Mar

I got giddy when BDJ Box uploaded a teaser photo of what will be inside the March 2014 Box. I was guessing one includes Porefessional PRO Balm…and it did!

For the first time, BDJ Box was able to release an EXCLUSIVE BENEFIT BDJ Box!

March 2014 BDJ Box (Exclusive BENEFIT Cosmetics Box)

I was happy to receive the box personally but I got a wee bit disappointed when I got hold of it. It did not seem heavy compared to the previous boxes they released. When I opened the box I felt happy to see samples of Benefit’s famous products. I looked for one full-sized product but there was none.  This box was just like the August 2013 BDJ Box where the  exclusive Shiseido box contained only sample sizes of products.

Nevertheless, it is still BENEFIT and we get to try and own their products for only ₱580.

Here are the products inside:

1 Porefessional PRO Balm

2 Stay Don’t Stray

3 Hello Flawless Oxygen Wow

4 Stay Flawless

AVON Anew 360 White CC Cream SPF 30 PA+++ 15-in-1 | BDJ Box 7-day Challenge

25 Feb

Avon Philippines just joined the CC Cream bandwagon as they released their latest product — AVON Anew 360 White CC Cream SPF 30 PA+++ 15-in-1. That’s quite a mouthful isn’t it? The bottomline is that this is more of a skincare product than a makeup. More on the moisturizer side but with high SPF content.

I got this particular one from the January-February BDJ Box. This was the first thing I noticed and loved among the rest of what’s inside the box. Anything with SPF tickles my fancy so I tried this at once… and I love it! Oh, if you want to subscribe for a BDJ Box, you can go to http://bdjbox.com/register.
