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.

Unboxing the July 2014 BDJ Box | Pure and Simple

2 Aug

Say hello to BDJ Box’s new look! As you can see from the picture, it is twice as big as the previous version, almost as big as their latest BDJ Box Elite from Heroine Make. Amazeballs, right?!

July 2014 BDJ Box Pure and Simple

The July BDJ Box was themed “Pure and Simple” and it arrived in my doorstep August 3. I’ve been seeing in instagram posts of those who received it earlier so I was kind of not that excited already. Nevertheless, I am still curious which variants I got…and crossing my fingers that I did not get the same items I received from the previous boxes I got.

Overview of what’s included for the Pure and Simple themed box:

Keratin Complete Travel Valet Care Kit

Pink Sugar Fine Fragrance Mist

Celeteque Back Acne Spray

Enchanted Eyeshadow Palette

Hygienix Hand Gel

Hygienix Hand Spray

Vitress Heat Protect

Vitress Hair Repair

Nivea Pure Effect Exfoliating Wipes

Nivea In Shower Skin Conditioner

Nivea Anti-Perspirant Invisible Spray

Unboxing the Special Edition SNOE Glamourbox

4 Feb

Glamourbox had tied up with SNOE Beauty, Inc. late last year and this partnership blossomed into something wonderful. They were able to come up with a Special Edition SNOE Glamourbox.

There were very limited boxes and I was not able to get one on the first batch. Luckily, they were able to open more slots and I made sure that I get to subscribe on the second batch.

It came around the third week of January and I was amazed to find that the box felt heavier than usual. Though somehow, I expected it to be one. Giddily, I opened the box immediately and this is what I found:

Vidal Sassoon Shampoo and Conditioner Premium Base Care Series | I got Sassooned!

21 Nov

I am one of those girls who got excited when Vidal Sassoon is finally back in the Philippines. I was even more excited when I found out that Sample Roompartnered with them. So when I saw that Sample Room offers a full size sample of Vidal Sassoon products, I gladly gave in. Though I am not a VIP member but I was able to try the Vidal Sassoon Shampoo and Conditioner Premium Base Care Series for 104 points. It was heavier than the usual rate so I paid ₱130 for shipping. I also added Godiva lotion for 25 points to make use of the ₱130 (which I will review next time).

It arrived two days after my payment and it came in a P&G paper bag inside the regular brown paper bag. The bottles look classy and sophisticated in the uniquely shaped bottle of maroon (shampoo) and burgundy (conditioner). It opens and locks easily for usage and less spillage.

Vidal Sassoon Shampoo and Conditioner Premium Base Care Series

 

Product Description:

Vidal Sassoon Premium Base Care series moisturizes and infuses each hair strand with elasticity to reduce frizz and enable effortlessly lifted styles.
RTB / Technology:

–           Amino Salon Essence – Deeply penetrates into hair and targets and helps repair the most damaged parts of hair

–           Dual Surfactant Formula – Enables deep  moisturization of every strand of hair –  for  hair that’s manageable and easy to style

How to Use: Apply to hair and gently work up lather without rubbing the hair strand against each other.

Shampoo: 190ml for ₱199

Conditioner: 184ml  for ₱199

I recently had a trim because I felt that I needed to cut the ends to prevent split ends from happening. I am very glad that this combo made me feel like I came out of the salon every time I use them.

MoringaO2 Malunggay Herbal Hair, Scalp and Skin Therapy Oil | Oil Healthy!

15 Nov

I am such a believer of Malunggay because of the benefits it gives. I am a lactating mother who takes 1-2 capsules of Malunggay Life Oil to aid in helping my body produce more milk. In lieu with that, I am beginning to see the value of having moringa in the products I use.

One moringa product I love is the moisturizer from the same company as this herbal therapy oil I’m about to review — MoringaO2. I saw their event in Instagram and found out that there is a new product to be added to the malunggay family — MoringaO2 Malunggay Herbal Hair, Scalp and Skin Therapy Oil. This is a bit mouthful and it explicitly says what this is for. And when I saw it in Mercury Drug almost a week after that, I helped myself to one.

Unboxing September BDJ Box

24 Sep

It was our flight to Davao when this came in the mail. Given that trip, I had to wait patiently to open this GREAT BDJ Box! There were already pictures posted in Instagram and Facebook and I am secretly wishing that I too will receive the Olay Cleanser Set (almost like the Clarisonic!)

Septmeber 2013 BDJ Box

When I opened the Fast Track plastic bag, there were two boxes — the regular BDJ Box and another box wrapped in brown paper. I unwrapped the brown paper and Lo and behold, I got the Olay Regenerist Specialty Cleanser Set with extra Cleanser Brush Heads. I was very happy because I had been wanting to receive one like the Clarisonic and BDJ Box made my secret wish come true! Thank you so much!

Septmeber 2013 BDJ Box

Besides the overwhelming Olay Regenerist Specialty Cleanser Set, the BDJ Box has a handful of products too.

Here is a sneak peek:

Unboxing the SM Beauty Box

10 Aug

After seeing this from established bloggers, I have been excited to get this. So this August 1, my little girl and I dropped by in SM North Edsa (the nearest participating mall to our place) to get a box, and in this case, two boxes! Honestly, all I want is the Olay Eye Cream which is worth 1499php. Technically, it is better to get the beauty box instead of buying the Olay Regenerist eye cream for its regular price.

The SA told me that there were only 15 boxes and when I came there there were only a few left. She said that even they wanted to get one for themselves.

Product Empties: MAY 2013

30 May

This is my first “product empties” post ever…because I hardly ever finish a product. I don’t get to empty them because, well, I like to keep them when they are 1/4 empty. I hardly ever throw products [even though they are expired!] because no matter how silly it may seem or how crazy I am, I’d like to keep them.

There’s going to be only one photo for this, though. 

954658_10152838831230234_239786126_n

1.   Clindamycin Phosphate S.O.S.(Save Our Skin)

I am already using my third bottle as of the moment. For almost 100php, this product works! I don’t have any blackheads around my nose anymore and it prevents big breakouts. For a detailed review, check here. 

2. Human Nature Strengthening Shampoo

I used this months ago but just emptied it recently. It is an all-natural shampoo without SLS.  This does not lather like other shampoos but it cleans just the same. I also loved the fresh aloe vera scent it leaves my hair. Most of the time, it makes my hair look damp straight and at times it makes my hair stiff and dry. That is why I use it only twice a week and on days when my hair feels like it is so much chemically-laden.

3. Oil Eliminator and Skin Hydrator

I did not really finish this up. I dropped it — accidentally. I was in shock when it happened because it was still almost new. The tub is still filled. It works well in preventing oiliness and smoothing out the face. Instead of crying over spilled milk, I moved on already and started again using the new Oil Eliminator HD from Krave.

4. J&J Milk Lotion

This product is actually used up by my little girl. I included it here because I undeniably share this with her. She loves applying lotion on her skin and on my skin as well!

5. Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser

I swear by this product and have used this ever since my little girl was an infant. I have two of this [one at my parent’s house, one at home]. The one we have at home is the empty one. I also have a little bottle of this in her baby bag. It is gentle, dermatologist tested, and may be used even without water. I also get to borrow this when we are out and I wanted to wash my face. What’s great is that you only have to use a little amount and a 250ml can last you a year or two.

REVIEW: L’oreal Paris Fall Repair 3X Shampoo and Conditioner

9 May

The newest variant among the many L’oreal Paris Shampoos and Conditioners – L’oreal Paris Fall Repair 3X. I got both the shampoo and conditioner for free from the March BDJ Box (L’oreal Box). This new Anti-Hair Fall hair care line from L’oreal is infused with Arginine Essence, an essential amino acid for the hair. The 3X signs stands for its triple anti- hair fall solution: Nourish, Reconstruct and Strengthen.

I did not even realize that it is J. Lo promoting this if I had not seen the commercial of this hair care line. She looks so young, vibrant and stunning.

triple-resist

I was a bit skeptical to use this line since it would be the first L’oreal hair care I will be using. But since my hair was so “used to” with the old hair product I was using, I thought I might as well give this a try.

There are times when my hair would stick to my hand when I rinse out hair products. I only get a few hair fall when I comb my hair. I don’t experience a bad case of hair fall so this is not really catchy for me.   But the container made me think twice. It looks so gorgeous with its black and fuchsia pink color. It looks so glam!
