This is my first BDJBox*. I already saw the October box and I like its contents but I wanted the element of surprise when opening a new box so I skipped the October box and subscribed to the new box. They started shipping the November boxes on November 29. Because of the long weekend, I expected the box to arrive on Monday. I was surprised it arrived today, Dec 1. It was quite impressive because I live in the south. When I say south, I mean Mindanao!*(For those not familiar with these boxes. A BDJBox is a beauty box composed of beauty products chosen according to the subscriber’s beauty profile. The box costs Php480 for each month’s subscription. )
1. Garnier Overnight Whitening Peeling Cream 20 ml
I am not really a fan of creams. I am a lazy person when it comes to applying moisturizers. I am also not a fan of whitening products because I love my brown skin. Since this is already in the box, I might as well try it. This is supposed to lessen dark spots and even skin tone. I have a few pimple scars that need lightening. I hope this works on those. This promises results in 28 days. I already applied this one while I am typing this post so I hope to see results on December 29.
2. Calvin Klein Beauty Perfume 1.2 ml
I love this small bottle. I hope I will be able to refill this and use the container when I travel. I travel light so I don’t bring perfume bottles on flights so I am reserving the container for travels. I used to sign up for free perfume samples in the mail. What I usually receive is a moist gauze infused with the sample scent and wrapped in foil. I like that the sample perfume is in a tiny spritzer.
3. Nippon Cleansing Sponge 2 pieces
4 and 5. Shiseido Extra Gentle Cleansing Foam and Shiseido Benefiance Wrinkle Resist 24 Day Cream
Since I got two 7ml tubes of the cleansing foam, I am using the first one to test the product while the second tube will be reserved for traveling. I already tried the product today and I little squirt on my finger is enough create a lather to wash my face. This is where the value of a beauty box comes into play. The 150 ml size of the cleansing foam costs Php1,850 while the 50 ml size of the day cream is P3,100. Personally, I do not want to shell out that kind of money only to test if the product works for me. By getting the sample size, I can test the product to see if it suits me without having to spend quite an enormous amount.
6. Physiogel Hypoallergenic Intensive Cream 50 ml
I got the 50 ml size which retails at Php517. This product alone exceeds the price I paid for the BDJBox. I am really getting value for money. I gave this to my uncle. His dermatologist prescribed this product when he suffered allergic reaction to his heart medication. The large tube costs around P800 and he was only able to buy twice because it is quite expensive to buy regularly for maintenance. He went for an alternative treatment by using honey to treat his allergy. My aunt was happy that I gave this product to her husband.
7. Dentiste Plus White Vitmin C and Xylitol sample size
8. L’Occitane Extra Gentle Milk Soap 25 g
I think this is my favorite in the batch. My friend gave me a L’Occitane lotion so I plan to use the soap and layer it with the lotion so I will smell fresh during special occasions. I was invited first Christmas party which will be in a few days. I will try this soap to feel fresh that day. 😀 The other soap? you know the drill, it goes to my travel kit. 😀
9. Yuka Non-Acetone Wipes 35 sheets
We were quite impressed with this one. We always use acetone to remove our nail polish. It is quite messy and the bottle easily loses its potency once opened. When my aunt saw this on my box, we immediately tried this on her two-month old pedicure. She has been wanting to remove her chipped nail polish but she often forgets to buy acetone. It only took one sheet to wiped off the nail polish on all of her 10 toes. Impressive!
10. L’Oreal Men Expert Hydra Energetic Multi Action 8 Cleanser
11. Garnier Light Complete Whitening Cream
I can give this a try when I use up my other Garnier cream.
But wait there’s more! There are stickers and discount coupons included in the package. I won’t be able to use the coupons because I live in the province. I am giving these to a friend. I so wanted to try that upper lip waxing at the Strip.
I am happy with November BDJBox that plan to get the December box if I still have shopping money left after Christmas. 😀
Here is the total estimated value of the November BDJBox:
1. Hair care
2. Facial wash, regular size
3. Lip balm
4. Face powder
I am really a low maintenance type of person. I want something I can use in the shower. The beauty products I really use are shampoo, soap, toothpaste and deodorant. Haha!
Because, sometimes, this works on me.
