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.

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

Krave’s Lip and Cheek Salve| Color as you Heal

26 Apr

I am all for multi-tasking products and since this one is a lip and cheek product, you can bet that this one was on my to-buy list. But then I remembered I have a 1000 gift certificate from Krave Minerale Cosmeceuticals since I won the Fearless Krave Mom last year Mother’s day.

The Krave team suggested I get 2 oil eliminators and 1 lip and cheek salve. I agreed because I really wanted to try the salve ever since it was released. I received it a day after we talked. Fast, right?

I like that it was sealed when I received it, assuring me it was new. It has a very glam, sleek looking packaging with a purple label “KRAVE”.

MAKEUP TAG

26 Apr

I gave in to the tag from RareVanity. I am an avid reader of Ms. Gem’s blog and she is even one of the reasons why I started blogging. I read her post and thought that this was quite interesting… So without further ado, here are my answers:

SKINCARE

How many times do you wash your face daily?

On a regular basis, I wash my face twice daily though there are days when I wash it thrice because a) it’s sooo hot and b) I have to prepare for something.

What skin type do you have? (dry, oily. combo)

I have sensitive, oily and acneic skin. I breakout due to hormones (pms and menstruation days) and reaction to new products.

What is your current facial wash?

I alternate using Krave Cupine Aloepa Facial Wash (morning) and ZA facial wash (night).

Do you exfoliate?

I only exfoliate at night and not more than twice a week. I feel it’s better at night it’s as if I’m preparing my skin for its “renewal time”.

What brand do you use?

Depending on m my mood, I alternate using Human Nature’s Purifying Facial Scrub, Cure, and Olay regenerist megasonic.

What moisturizer do your use?

I collect moisturizers but currently I am using different moisturizers for the morning and at night. In the morning, I use Krave’s Moisture Visage then Celeteque Anti-aging moisturizer with SPF15. At night I use Krave’s Moisture Visage then ZA Collagen Moisturizer.

Do you have freckles?

I have none.

Do you use eye cream?

Yes! In the morning I use Olay Regenerist Eye Cream and Lash Serum. At night, I use Avon Anew Genics Eye Cream.

Do you or did you have acne prone skin?

Sadly, yes. I easily react to products with harsh ingredients so I always opt for those safe for sensitive skin.

Did you ever have to use Pro-activ? I wanted to but I haven’t used it yet.

Unboxing April 2014 BDJ Box | Exclusive Pixy (Truly Asian Beauty) Box

15 Apr

I attended a Baccalaureate mass last Saturday and commuting home left me lightheaded. It somehow disappeared when I saw this in our living room, waiting for me. Actually I got 2 packages yesterday – one from Sample Room and one from BDJ Box.

I lifted the April BDJ Box and became giddy when it felt heavy again! YAY! Became excited when I saw an Exclusive BDJ Box from a new makeup brand in the Philippines, PIXY. No doubt BDJ Box is the first to let us Bellas try the said brand. This new brand is an Indonesian cosmetics line which is formulated using Japanese technology and ingredients. Truly made for Asian skin, agree?

Ellana Lip and Cheek Gel in Ruby | Are you Red-y?!

8 Mar

Ellana Cosmetics is another brand which is proudly Pinoy made. It recently made a comeback, which caters improved and new products. I haven’t tried any of them yet until BDJ Box included one of its bestsellers in the January-February BDJ Box.

The shade I got was Ruby and from the bottle, it looks bloody red with blue undertone. I love the functionality of the packaging. It is a pump plastic bottle which can withstand falls. The pump, on the other hand, has no cover but it locks as you twist it – making it very travel friendly! The drawing / label design looks very sophisticated and feminine!

Glamourbox subscribers were given the chance to try out lippies from a new brand called, Ofra. I received this in my Beauty SOS Glamourbox. I am not so sure with the availability of this particular brand in the market but for sure it is available online in Glamourbox.

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.

Maybelline Baby Lips (New Bright Collection) in Tangerine Pop | Too Sheer for its Name

15 Oct

Every girl I know loves lip balms! And why shouldn’t we?

So when the famous Maybelline Baby Lips lip balms released their newest collection called “New Bright Collection,” I wanted to try one stat! Good thing the October 2013 BDJ Box included one in the color that I like — Tangerine Pop!

If you would notice, I love anything coral — from blushes to lipstick. I just think it looks good on someone with a yellow undertone like me. And with the catchy name this lip balm has, who wouldn’t want it, right?
