May BDJ Box Unboxing + First Impressions

Hello loves! It is that time of the month again for my unboxing of my BDJ Box. If you are new to this blog or if you have not heard of BDJ Box, they are one of the biggest beauty subscription boxes here in the Philippines and every month I share what I get from my beauty box. I have been a subscriber for more than a year now (I think) and it is a testament on how much I love them!
The May box actually came in a bit early than I expected, but nonetheless I am looking forward to it. After that April Pixy box, who wouldn't right? Anyways, this month's theme is Summer Radiance.
Basically this month's box is curated to help us recover from this summer heat. As you all know, summer will be over soon (I hope sooner than later, I can't stand how hot our weather is) so they included products to bring back our glowing skin and hair. Ready to see the items that I got?

ORGANIX HAIR CARE SET (Sample Sachets)
Full Size Bottles 13 oz - ₱499
Full Size Oil 3.3 oz - ₱499
I am actually super happy to get these babies. My hair has been super dry lately and I have been enjoying applying Argan Oil on my damp hair, so these will be just perfect for me. I actually saw That's Heart using the Argan Oil variant to restore her hair, so that is something that I will try first.

DERMAL SHEET MASK (2 Sheets)
2 Sheets - ₱140
I've tried this brand before as a freebie that I got from Kering Keri Store (cannot remember which variant) and I actually really like it that I was searching where I can buy these. I was super stoked to see them in this month's box. They feel refreshing and they really leave my skin soft and supple. I can't believe there are 36 different variants for this mask, I will definitely check those out.

TOO COOL FOR SCHOOL PUMPKIN SLEEPING PACK (Full Size)
100 ml - ₱689
There are no English instructions on the packaging, but according to the curation card this is a skin renewal sleeping pack that you can apply at night before bed and leave on till the next morning. It claims to soothe the skin while removing dead skin cells, so I am excited to try this one out.

GODIVE LICOWHITE WHITENING LOTION AND
ANTIPERSPIRANT DEODORANT (12 Sachets Each)
Full Size Lotion 100 ml - ₱120
Full Size Deodorant 40 ml - ₱79
The lotions are something that I really don't want to try (sorry) but I am excited to put the deodorant to the test. It claims to whiten the underams and needed to be applied twice daily. Let's see if it works for me though.

REVLON COLORSTAY NAIL ENAMEL (2 Full Size)
11.7 ml - ₱325/each
I have been into nail polishes (again) this summer and glad that I can add these two in my collection. It says it will last up to 11 days and that it has a gel-like finish for long lasting shine. Let's see if it works for me, because when I apply polish on my nails I see that they started chipping 2 days in. Not sure if that is just my clumsiness or what not.
VOUCHERS
Free Belle Underwire Custom Cleavage Dream Brassiere from Avon (valued at ₱599)
PAC Make Over Voucher worth ₱1,500
Dr. CRB 50% Off on Reshape Ultra or Caci Non-Surgical Face Lift
₱50 Off on All Lucido-L Variants
₱100 Off on all Bifesta Cleansing Lotion Variants
I Do Nails Free ₱300 Add-ons for every Mani & Pedi

To be honest, on all of these vouchers, I'll only use the one for Avon, PAC and Bifesta. Not sure what I'll do with the others.

And I am not certain if all subscribers got these, but they also sent a Salvatos Folding Flip Flops.
I actually like the idea of this, since when I attend events I wear heels but at the end of the day, I wanted to wear something comfortable after hours of standing and punishing my feet. It is very light and small that it can easily fit in my bag.
I love the color that I got, it is super neutral and can go with anything. I got the size 38/39, and my feet is 39.5, but I am sure this will fit me better once I was able to break it in.

And that is everything that I got for this months box. Do I like it? Yes. Do I love it? Not so much! After all the hype of the Pixy Box, I think BDJ still did a great job on delivering this month's box. I love almost all of the products except for the lotion and the vouchers. It's alright for me that they didn't include any makeup products, I just hope they added more masks or body scrub or exfoliator instead. :)

I hope that you enjoy this post. Let me know your thoughts, and if you are subscribed to this month's box, how did you feel about it? If you haven't subscribed to BDJ Box yet, I highly recommend that you do so! Visit www.bdjbox.com now.

Thank you so much for reading and I will see you in my next post, yes? Oh, and if you have any requests, let me know! I am planning to do a back-to-school makeup tutorial, would that be something that you are interested in?

Stay pretty and happy. Goodluck!
