BDJ Box Shiseido

What a surprise! Got this in the mail a few days ago and couldn’t help but squeal at the first sight of this BDJ Box’s cover. This month, the BDJ Box Team prepared the very first exclusive BDJ Box to make us BDJ girls feel the love.

BDJ Box Shiseido

Inside are five of their most beloved beauty products from Shiseido to help us lighten, brighten, and be our most radiant selves!

It’s not the first time that they included Shiseido products in their boxes. Actually, I’ve been using one of the Shiseido samples I got from my first BDJ Box - the Benefiance Wrinkle Resist24 Night Emulsion. I’m halfway through the bottle! :)

My mom and lola are also faithful users of Shiseido for years now, so now it’s my turn to see what all their fuss is about!

BDJ BOX Belle de Jour

Finally got another one of these pretty BDJ Boxes, thanks to the lovely ladies behind the very successful Belle de Jour Power Planner! *happy dance* I seriously feel like it’s Christmas every time I receive these in the mail.

BDJ BOX Belle de Jour

I loved the little note that came with it since it made me think about what my beauty resolution for 2013 is/are! I only really became conscious about my skin after college, when I suddenly felt paranoid about aging (even if I’m far from wrinkles… for now). This being said, I’m relatively new to the whole skincare scene compared to most people. Growing up, I didn’t get the chance to use my mom’s stuff because we had totally different skin types, so I pretty much had to take it on by myself. Now that BDJ Box is here, I don’t have to worry about spending so much just to try out different things.

BDJ Box: Unbox Your Own Beauty

Posted on Tuesday, 6 November 2012

I finally got my own BDJ Box today, thanks to the lovely ladies behind the very successful Belle de Jour Power Planner. I couldn’t wait to open it since I’ve been hearing a lot of good stuff about this new concept being the best online beauty resource in the country by providing monthly beauty product discovery subscriptions.

Isn’t it genius? You get a box filled with sample-size goodies to try out for yourself, helping you to decide if you want to buy the full-sized products or not. As a beauty junkie myself, there are times when I end up wasting a lot of money for something that ends up not suiting my skin at all. Now, you can get your own BDJ Box of deluxe-sized samples for only P480 a month! Definitely beats the thousands of pesos spent on impulse beauty purchases. *guilty*

What’s even better is that you just won’t get random stuff in this box! Just log on the BDJ Box website, fill out a questionnaire about your skin type and concerns, and based on your answers, the BDJ Box team will decide on which products to put in your package.

Here is the first BDJ Box that they released on the last week of October. The packaging is super cute - I don’t want to throw it out! :)

It comes with a number of stickers that say “I’m not beautiful like you. I’m beautiful like me.” I’ll totally give these to my girl friends! <3

Here are the contents. It’s all so incredibly timely because the sample sizes are also so ideal for those like me who travel every few months (I know I just got back from Hong Kong, but I’ll suddenly be on a spontaneous trip to Jakarta for a week starting tomorrow!). I always have such a hard time to lugging around giant containers of shampoo and what have you, so thanks BDJ for reading my mind! I’ll include these products when I do my last minute packing. :)

It’s only the start of November and I’m already excited with my November BDJ Box! There’s an element of surprise to this that I just cannot get enough of.
