Unboxing June BDJ Box

19 Jun

BDJ Boxes often arrive mid of the month…. for me, it comes just in time for a celebration! Last month, I got it on Mother’s Day and this month, I got in time for my birthday!

“The Science of Beauty” is the theme for this month’s box.

As said, “We’ve put together eight amazing products, all backed  by the wonders of science to bring out your most gorgeous self! All of them powered by hours of research, working towards giving you your most beautiful self yet.”
After the jampacked May BDJ Box, I kind of kept my hopes up with BDJ Box. I believe in them and I think that they will be able to deliver.


A total of 8 products is inside the June BDJ Box — 6 full size ones and 2 samples. There is also the famous sticker which states, “You are stronger than you seem; You are more beautiful than you think.


So if you want to see more of what’s inside, please click Continue Reading.

L’Oreal UV Perfect Long Lasting UV Protector | More Than a Sunblock for Me

11 Jun

Rainy days are here again and that means summer is officially over. But that does not mean you have to stash away your summer skin essentials! Our skin needs UV protection all year long!

I was very excited when I saw this in my March BDJ Box or their “L’oreal Box”. It was a full-size sample worth 545php!

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.


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!

BDJ BOX Beauty Social Event

23 Apr

Last March 24, I attended the BDJ Box Beauty Social Event with my hubby and baby, my brother and his girl friend. Everyone is welcomed but the pre-registered ones are prioritized. We signed up and confirmed our registrations and got a pamphlet like this:


I was scheduled to attend two talks: Beauty Questions Solved and All Dolled Up. Both of which I attended standing behind the audience since my little girl cannot sit still.



We were a bit overwhelmed to which booth we should visit first. After the 1pm talk, I visited each booth one by one. There are some booths with plenty of people around so I wasn’t able to squeeze myself in.

Here are some of the participating booths and happenings in the event:


Karla and I also got our shot in the Brow Haus’ free upper lip threading…and it hurt! I look funny I know but that was the proper position. The skin on the upper lip should be stretched. Oh well it was our first time and my upper lip felt amazingly smooth!


We also had our chance at the nail art section. I wanted the lemon but there were only 5 pieces left so I had to choose another. I just chose cupcakes for the other 5 pieces. Lemons for my left hand and cupcakes for the right. My little girl was busy posing at the booths decors.


This was our only picture there. Haggardness and all, we managed to smile because we were happy ladies that day.20130423-172913.jpg

Of course we didn’t come home empty handed. We love the loot bag. Though we weren’t able to use the Shiseido voucher inside the loot bag, we were still happy with the event.



Thank you so much BDJ BOX Team! It was nice meeting you all. Congratulations on the success of this event. Looking forward to more events with you…

REVIEW: L’oreal Base Magique Transformin Smoothing Primer

22 Apr

I never knew makeup primers are a need for a great look. All along I thought moisturizers are enough to serve as our skin’s barrier to makeup. Finding this in Cosmo magazine made me think otherwise.

??????????????????????????????? I tried searching for primers that have positive reviews and this was one of them.


L’Oreal Paris Base Magique Transforming Smoothing Primer had a 25% discount when I got it last December. Its SRP is 945php though. Here are the product descriptions and ingredients printed in the box.




L’Oreal Paris Base Magique Transforming Smoothing Primer is basically a primer that is used to make skin smoother and the makeup last longer.

It comes in a glass jar that looks so sophisticated and sturdy. It contains 15g of product and will really last you a long time since all you need is a little amount for your whole face.



This is my first (cream) primer. I use L’oreal on special days when I know I won’t have any time for touch ups and makeup checks at the mirror. There is another organic mineral powder primer that I have and that is Krave’s Oil Eliminator and Skin Hydrator.

It is as its called —  base magique and transforming smoothing primer. It is designed to prep and protect the skin, minimizes pores and mask wrinkles and uneven skin texture. The “transorming” formula has a velvety powdery texture and it diminishes appearance of fine lines and pores. It also helps absorb oil and prevents oiliness for a whole 12 hour.  It is also very easy to use with your fingers and enables easy glide-on application of any type of foundation.


How I apply it:

  • Using a spatula or just my clean finger, I get a little amount and rub primer between my fingers to pread the product before I apply on my face.
  • I dab on problem areas such as the T-zone and the cheeks then just spread with my clean fingers again.
  • I let it set for about 5 – 10 minutes before I proceed with foundation application.

Here are some pictures of events I attended and have used this:

What I love:

(+) It has a smooth, velvety cream powder texture that makes it easy to apply with fingers.

(+) It makes skin feels super soft and smooth.

(+) It minimizes the appearance of pores, especially around the nose and cheek area.

(+) It disappears and blends well into skin.

(+) It does not feel heavy or thick.

(+) It reduces shine all day and makes skin look matte.

(+) This makes cream, liquid and powder foundation application easier!

(+) It makes foundation look better and you end up with better pictures.

(+) It helps foundation stay on your skin — no melting and/or caking.

(+) Makeup stays longer with this base primer on.

(+) May be used alone or under foundation.

(+) Sturdy and sophisticated glass jar packaging.

(+) It will last you a long time since a little goes a long way.

(+) Fair price of 945php for 15g of product.

What I wish:

(-) It came in a squeeze tube or pump bottle.

(-) It doesn’t have too much silicone.

(-) It makes me breakout (tiny zits) sometimes.

Overall: I am absolutely loving this primer and I have been using this especially on special days and occasions. I recommend this to oily skin gals like me and to any lady who wants smoother skin.
