April BDJ Box Unboxing

Hello everyone! Happy Monday and its that time of the month again for my BDJ Box Unboxing. :)

I was super excited when I got my April box yesterday, as I have been waiting for this to arrive since Friday. I didn't cheat and looked for unboxing photos and/or posts, as it will spoil the thrill of receiving a beauty box that you have no idea what's inside. Anyhow, here are the box contents:

As always, there is a letter from the BDJ Box Team as well as a list of the products inside. I appreciate that they gave out these stickers with the phrase "I see the beautiful in you." It is very inspiring and sweet at the same time.

Garnier Light Intensive 3 in 1 Whitening Essence Mask (Full Size)
19 ml - 
₱89 each

I haven't tried any face masks from Garnier before, so I am excited to try this.

Goody Slide-Proof Pins and Elastics + 20% Off Coupon
2 Clips and 2 Elastics - ₱449.75

When I saw this, I immediately thought "Cool, I have clips now" but when I saw the hefty price I was like "What in the world is this? 2 clips and 2 elastics for ₱450? Are you kidding me?" Goody products are good, yes, but they are way overpriced! So I am not sure if I will be able to use to 20% off coupon, we'll see.

Avon Anew 360° White Day Cream (15 g Sample) + Avon Anew 360° White Day Cream, Night Cream and Intensive Serum Foil Packet Samples
30 g White Day Cream - ₱799

I apologize I wasn't able to take a photo of the foil packet samples. I am not sure if I will use this, so I would probably give this to my mom. I appreciate BDJ's effort though on giving us new products to try out.

Avon Skin So Soft Glutathione Lotion With Marula (Full Size)
250 ml - ₱350

If you have read my March Saladbox Unboxing, you would know that I already got 2 of this which I included on my current giveaway, so this one I would probably give to someone else as well. I am not fond of wearing lotions, especially this summer where it is so hot and lotions feel heavy and sticky on the skin. Plus, I don't like the smell of this.

Celeteque Hydrolized Moisturizing Mist (Full Size)
120 ml - ₱349

This! I am super excited when I saw this on the box! I have been meaning to purchase the Evian Facial Spray just because I feel the need to keep my skin hydrated because of this summer heat, and I do not have to anymore because of this. It makes my face feel so refreshed and I love it!

Bifesta Age Care Cleansing Lotion (30 ml Sample Size)
300 ml - ₱419

I am super curious if this will be a good makeup remover or not, as I am super happy with my Pond's Cold Cream. Maybe this is something that I can use in conjunction with my current routine just to make sure that my face is super duper clean of makeup.

Revlon Nail Art Expressionist in Ulterior Motif (Full Size)
7.68 ml - ₱375

Oh! Nail polish! I actually love the shade that I got. On one end is a sort of metallic, silver gray color and on the other end is this pink glitter color! I am inlove with it and will definitely use this.

Selena Gomez Eau De Parfum (Sample Size)
100 ml - ₱2,950

Sorry, forgot to take the photo again but I already have one when I went to the BDJ Box Beauty Social Event, and now I got two. This perfume smells really sweet and girly, so I might as well use it as well. Sure thing is, I will not purchase the full size bottle.

Bonus Item: Candi Nail Polish Remover Wipes (Full Size)
30 pieces - ₱65

This is something that is not new to me since I already got one from Eazy Fashion before. When I opened it, the strong smell of alcohol caught me off guard, but I love how the pads are thick and soft and also does a great job in removing nail polish. I am not sure though if this will work for glitter polishes.

Vouchers for Bioessence Premium Pass and Belletoday Personalized Weight Loss Coaching

Oh I love the Bioessence Premium Pass, it is a choice between an Aroma Facial or Foot Reflex, and it is for free! The promo for the weight loss coaching is a good deal too, because diet is an important part of losing weight. Love this vouchers, they will not go to waste!

And that is it for the April BDJ Box. I am actually happy with the things that I got for this month, although I was not expecting that it would be from different brands. Maybe I got used to the idea that BDJ Box features one brand for each month, which is what I actually prefer. But I still love this month's box regardless,  it conveys the purpose of beauty subscription boxes which is to try out samples and new products in the market.

Let me know if you wanted me to review a particular product from this box and I would be happy to do one. And please do not forget to join my current giveaway in where I collaborated with Rattus of Beauty On A Shoestring Budget.

    I hope you like bifesta. I don't like oily or creamy makeup removers and I don't think we have any other micellar water makeup remover yet. It can't remove waterproof mascara and eyeliner. So I use shu uemura cleansing oil for that.

      I see. I haven't tried it yet but I hope I like it. I love waterproof stuff that's why I need oil or cream makeup removers, but hopefully it works fine. :)
