January-February BDJ Box Unboxing + First Impressions

Hello Pinay Beauties! It's the start of the love month, February. Today, I just wanted to share with you the January-Febraury BDJ Box.

I am still not sure why BDJ decided to combine 2 months in one box. Wanna know if it's worth it? Let's take a look.

The theme of this box is "Change It Up." New year means new opportunities and possibilities, and this box offers to help Bella's change their skincare or makeup routine.
Just looking at the curation card, you can definitely see that this box is packed with lots of goodies. It's been a while since I received a heavy box from BDJ.
Let's talk about the products one by one.

Beauty and Bright Moringa Soap (2 Full Size)
Full Size 130 g - ₱114
I have definitely seen these soaps before but I didn't try them, just because I am happy with the ones that I am currently using. It claims to be packed with 7 beautifying extracts that will hep renew and lighten the skin without the dryness. I am not sure why they included 2 (not that I am complaining) but we'll see. I have 2 soaps from my Glamourbox too so I am not sure when I can try these babies out.

My Amazing Bow Dry Secret Shampoo and Conditioner (Sample Size 15 ml)
Full Size 300 ml - ₱1,200/each
These are actually the bonus items for this month's box. It claims to help cut down blow dry time for faster and stress-free styling. I usually let my hair air dry because I know that blow drying and ironing can stress and damage the hair. I might try this out if I need to go out and style my hair.

Tony Moly Skin Revolution Kit (Samples)
Now this one is interesting since it includes a complete skincare regime that you can try out. It includes 4 products inside: Tomatox Magic White Massage Pack, Oriental Gyeol Emulsion, Intense Care Live Snail Cream, and the Luminous Pure Aura CC Cream. I am not sure if I wanted to try this out, since I'm using Benzoyl Peroxide to clear my acne, but I'll definitely try the CC Cream.

Avon Face Pearls (Full Size)
Full Size 22 g - ₱599
This is actually a very interesting product. I have heard about bronzing rocks/pearls before but this is the first time that I can actually use one. This is more of a blush or a highlighter product. Looking closely, there are 3 hues of pearls inside which creates a very beautiful peachy-coral shade when used altogether.
You can also use the individual pearls as an eyeshadow color. It is pretty multitasking and I am excited to experiment more with this product.

Yves Rocher Sexy Pulp Mascara (Sample Size)
Full Size 9 ml - ₱650
I love trying out different makeup products and believe it or not, I love sample mascaras because they are something that you can easily fit on your makeup kit or bag. I haven't really tried any makeup products from Yves Rocher and this mascara looks promising. I love the wand of this one.
I love how it lengthens and separates my lashes. Not quite sure how waterproof this is, but so far so good.

Ellana Minerals Lip and Cheek Gel (Full Size)
Full Size 20 ml - ₱220
I am in the hunt for a lip and cheek tint and the timing couldn't be more perfect. I was just actually browsing through Ellana's website and this definitely caught my attention. The shade that I got is Amethyst, which is an orangey-red shade.
It blends out nicely, but I just don't like how there is a very noticeable stain on where the swatch is sitting on before blending. Guess I just need to be super careful not to let the product sit in one area and blend as fast as I can.

Revlon Nail Art Moon Candy Expressionist (Full Size)
Full Size 7.68 ml - ₱375
This is my second Revlon nail art polish from BDJ Box and I loved the first one so I am excited to try this one out. The shade that I got is 260 Meteor and I am not really sure how this color will look on me but I would still try this.

Garnier Color Naturals (Full Size)
Full Size 100 ml - ₱199
I didn't know that Garnier sells hair color products (I really thought they only specialize on skincare) so I was surprised to see this one. The shade that I got is Darkest Brown which I will not use to be honest. I prefer lighter shades than this. I would probably give this to my mom, since she needs to cover some of her gray hairs.

Vouches from Browhaus, Aesthetic Institute of the Philippines (AIP)
and Azta Urban Salon
I really appreciate these vouchers from BDJ Box but I am not sure that I can use them (same as the ones from their previous boxes) because either I don't need it, or the branches are too far from me.

I am still in the middle whether I am satisfied with this box or not. I mean yes, there are a lot of goodies and products in here but I am not sure if this is equivalent to 2 months, since I know that BDJ can give more in a 1 month box. I am still happy though, don't get me wrong on that. 5 full size items? Not bad, really.

And that is it for my unboxing. Did you get your own box too? How do you feel about it? Let me know in the comments below.

Thank you so much for reading guys! I really appreciate it. Next post is my monthly faves, please watch out for it. Stay happy, and goodluck!

    I missed this box but I was able to get March to April :) Looking at it, I guess I am not regretting it because I don't need most of the items...however, I really wanted to try the Tony Moly products :) but I guess I will have other opportunities :)

    Medyo disappointed ako especially sa Tony Moly products haha! Much better sana kung naginclude sila kahit isang full sized dun sa 4. kaso lahat sample sized. And oo sayang ung mga vouchers, yung browhaus baka ipamigay ko sa sis in law ko since ung bf nya may chikot they can go lagi sa branches. woot!
