Unboxing: Beauty Innovations September 2014 BDJ Box

September 22, 2014

It was a gloomy Monday morning.. but the BDJ Team does know how to make a bella happy! The September BDJ Box has arrived! It was sitting nicely in the table when I went down – and expectedly, my mom was as eager as I was to know what’s inside! Mom is now officially part of the unboxing team!

If you are not familiar yet with the BDJ Box, it is a subscription box that is curated by the BDJ Box Beauty Ministries. They pick beauty  products and put them in a box for bellas to try – products are usually beauty items, skin care products, nail stuff or fragranes. Some come in travel sizes, and others in full sizes. Most of the items are new in the market so you get to try them first. The best part, you only need to pay Php 580 for the box (which contains products usually worth at Php 2,000!).

Anyway, so here comes the September 2014 BDJ Box. It is bigger than the usual BDJ Box and this is the second time that BDJ Box has delivered a big box! This month’s box is dubbed Beauty Innovations because of the new revolutionary new products inside.

Let’s check what’s inside..

The inspirational sticker says,
“Seek the beauty in everything you see..”
It reminds me of my friend Bam – (s)he always sees the beauty in every person. I have never heard him criticize anyone- and (s)he radiates that beauty.
Let’s check what’s inside:
Cream Silk Conditioner Php 134! There are two tubes! I love them!
Just last week, I talked about All Things Hair and how hair care is the most searched key word in Google. I love the variants that I got – Hair Fall Defense and Standout Straight. These got Vita-Boost Complex that deeply penetrates the hair strand.

Here’s more for hair care – Dove Daily Hair Vitamin! Php 75)
Dove has sent samples of this but I didn’t get one so I am so happy this is included in the September BDJ Box. The newly launched hair vitamins infused with Vitamin E and botanical extracts from Dove. I super love the packaging in capsules!
Pond’s Dewy Rose Gel Php 150
(I got two!)
I love Pond’s because it is kind to my skin (I use the BB Cream!) and it is affordable. This new product has a Rose Lumiere Serum that goes deep into the skin to lighten dark spots and smoothen pores. I am addicted to serums lately, so I am interested with this product.
Beach Hut Clear Spray Php 390
I was just looking for this in the mall the other day, and wow, BDJ team got it for me! Wohoo!
I like this because I don’t need to lather on sticky lotion. Plus, it is a must to wear sunscreen even if it is not summer 🙂
Jergen’s Moisture Pack
Jergen’s Ultra Healing Lotion Php 88
Jergen’s Daily Moisture Php 153
I am delighted to know that Jergen’s is back in the beauty game. I remember my mom using this product (she had a big bottle of Jergen’s in the dresser!). These two promise to bring in moisture and smoothness in the skin.

BDJ Team added Godiva products in the box. Godiva LicoWhite Whitening Toner Php 60 (with Glabridin that evens out skin tone) and Godiva Whitening Facial Wash samples. I heard a lot of good raves about this brand. My sister loves the face cream. Let’s see if this would do wonder on my skin too.

BDJ Box also thought of something for those who love to experiment with makeup –
There are FS products included in the box!
FS Gel Liner Php 299 (will probably try this first!) and FS Single Eye Shadow Php 150.
I am excited over the gel liner because I always have troubles applying eye liner. This one is gel based that should easily glide in the skin. The eye shadow promises to be smooth and silky too. It comes in different finishes – shimmer, matte, satin and glitter. The color I got is so sexy – flamed tangerine!
Too many items in the September 2014 BDJ Box! Just when I thought I got everything from the box, I saw this voucher from PAC Cosmetics! Looks like I got a free makeover session worth Php1,500 from the PAC Cosmetics!

So happy with the September 2014 BDJ Box!
Looks like the box contents total to Php 3, 358 (including the Php 1,500 makeover voucher!)
Plus, I even got a chance to win more prizes! Every month, the BDJ Box team includes challenges in the box and gives away more awesome loot to the winners. Last month, I joined the challenge and posted my review of the Sheseido Ultimune review. I am still hopeful to win.

This month, the challenge is to make a video! I am not very comfortable in front of camera. I haven’t even posted the Ice Bucket Challenge that I need to share. But let’s see what I can do.. I love that BDJ pushes us to do what we think we cannot do. 🙂
It is really worth subscribing to BDJ Box (and if you have budget, subscribe for 6 months because boxes are selling like pancakes!). My friend who subscribed months ago was only able to confirm for the BDJ Box last month.
Php 580.00 for 1 month
Php 1,700 for 3 months 
Php 3,300 for 6 months
August BDJ Box
