May BDJ Box Unboxing: Fun, Fresh and Fierce

Hello Pinay Beauties and Happy Mother's Day to all of my lovely mom readers! Today, I wanted to share with you my May BDJ Box Unboxing.

The theme for this month's box is "Fun, Fresh and Fierce" which is super cool! BDJ Box had just outdone themselves with this month's box, and I never thought that you could fit lots of products in such a small box. They featured 3 amazing brands: Ralph Lauren, Garnier and Maybelline. Let's start with the unboxing shall we?

For the "Fun" part, BDJ box included 4 perfume samples to try out and play with.

Ralph Lauren Big Pony Women #1, #2, #3 and #4 (Sample Size)
Full Size 100 ml - ₱4,300

I love that they included 4 perfume samples, which means you can really try them all and choose which you prefer the most. And the best part? They also gave coupons for ₱1,000 off when you purchase a full size bottle in any Rustan's Department Stores.

These samples and coupons will not be gone to waste as my partner loves perfumes! I will definitely give these to her and buy her a full size bottle of whatever she likes among the four.

Now for the "Fresh" part, BDJ Box offers these beauty products from Garnier so you can sport a fresh and healthy looking skin.

Garnier Light Gentle Exfoliating Scrub (Full Size)
100 ml - ₱140

In all honesty, aside from the mask I got from last month's box, I have never tried Garnier products before, so I am excited to use this. I was thinking of getting the St. Ives Apricot Scrub yesterday and I'm glad I didn't because now I got myself a facial scrub. I will be using this and will definitely give you an update if it does work for me.

Garnier Light Complete Multi-Action Whitening Cream (Full Size)
20 ml - ₱75

This whitening cream claims to provide up to 8 hours of oil control and a shine free look. It also has Salicylic Acid that diminishes acne marks and dark spots so I am excited to use this as well.

Garnier Overnight Whitening Peeling Cream (Sample Size 20 ml)
Full Size 50 ml - ₱229

Another product claiming to lighten dark spots and acne marks revealing a fairer, more radiant skin when you wake up in the morning. Oh I cannot wait to see if this does deliver.

Garnier Pure Active Anti-Imperfections Cooling Roll On (Full Size)
15 ml - ₱229

This is the first time I heard of this product. It's like a spot treatment for your blemishes, dark spots and redness. I cannot wait to try this as I love cooling face products.

Garnier Oil Clear Self-Heating Mask (Full Size)
2 x 6 ml - ₱49

New masks from Garnier. Yay! I am starting to get addicted to face masks, so this is something to try out. It claims to purify oily skin for up to 7 days. I'm super excited to use this.

Garnier Lightening Peel Off Mask (Full Size)
2 x 6 ml - ₱49

Oh a peel-off mask! If you have lots of impurities and large pores like me, then peel-off masks is your bestfriend  They help unclog your pores and remove dead skin cells, so this is something that I really wanted to use, ASAP.

I have always wished that BDJ box will carry more makeup samples, and it's like my wish was answered because this month they gave out Maybelline makeup products that allows you to create whole look and be as "Fierce" as you can be.

Maybelline Clear Smooth All-in-One Shine-Free Foundation (To Go Sample Size, 3.5 g)
Full size 9 g - ₱199

This is just a sample size but I love that it also has a mirror! It is so small that it can fit a small coin purse. And as a plus it also offers SPF 25 PA++ to protect your skin from the sun. It only comes in 2 shades and I think the shade that  I got is perfect for me.

Maybelline EyeStudio LuminEyes in Coral Pink (Full Size)
Full size - ₱599

An eyeshadow palette that is perfect for everyday use! As the name implies, this palette consists of 5 frosty/shimmery eyeshadows.

But what I like about it the most is that on the back of the palette, it has instructions on how to use this palette, which is perfect for beginners.

I cannot wait to just play around with this palette. I think the colors are pretty amazing plus they claim that these shadows last long so we'll see about that.

Maybelline The Hyper Curl Volum Express Waterproof Mascara (Full Size)
Full size - ₱250

I am and will always be a fan of Maybelline mascaras, they're cheap and the quality is awesome. I am pretty sure that this is not a new product in the market as I have seen this before and I have read lots of good reviews about it. I  love the big brush of this mascara, which may be the secret to that full lash effect.

I haven't tested out if it's really waterproof but I have high expectations with this mascara.

Maybelline Color Sensational Lasting Lipstick in Make Me Pink (Full Size)
Full size - ₱399

Yes! A lipstick! I always wanted to try these babies out but as you can see, it costs roughly ₱400 and for me a ₱400 lipstick is expensive. I am so glad to see these in the box that I immediately swatched it at the back of my hand:

It's a gorgeous pinkish plum/mauve color and I am super excited to try it on the lips, but unfortunately my lips are super chapped and dry right now that I have not worn a lipstick for 2 weeks. Imagine, 2 weeks. I am excited to try this out and see if it really does last and if it really does moisturize the lips while providing full color.

Maybelline Baby Lips Color Lip Balm in Cherry Kiss (Full Size)
Full Size - ₱89

I have never been a fan of Maybelline lipbalm just because. Upon removing the cap from the lipbalm the strong cherry scent hit me and I am not sure whether I like or not. It is a bot tinted though, more of like a red orange tint. I think I will try to use this and see if it can remedy my super chapped and dry lips.

All in all, I got 15 products from this box, 9 of which are full size items! I can't explain how happy I am that I am subscribed to BDJ Box. The BDJ Box team just makes me a proud Bella even more.

I believe their June boxes are already sold out and they have limited stocks left for their July boxes so grab one now while you can.

    I haven't received my May box from BDJ yet. Your unboxing heightened my desire to receive mine ASAP. I have subscribed to BDJ Box since March of this year. The contents of the box never fails to amaze me. I am subscribed until June but definitely I will renew to receive the BDJ boxes for more months to come.

      You should definitely resubscribe! Even though they increased their monthly rate, I think it is super worth it. Just look at all these products for 480 pesos, how much more now that it is 580? I am super excited! :)

    I'm a sad bear! I didn't get the chance to subscribed for the May box. So envious on the cosmetic products!...
