Imagine my surprise when I got home to another BDJ Box for the month of July! When the team originally emailed me, I was supposed to get a certain number of boxes to try and I thought my BDJ time was up last month, but I counted wrong… HEH. So, I was so happy to get this month’s because I was eyeing that too cool for school BB Cream!
This month’s box is freaking awesome, by the way. I’m so happy I was sent one. Thank you to the BDJ Box team. 🙂 And for my next trick—pictures!
This month’s box has kind of a “pampering” theme to it, especially with the huge-ass surprise, which I will get to in a minute but you’ve probably read about already. For the standard BDJ Box first, we have the ff. items:
YAY A SPRAY-ON SUNSCREEN! This particular one has SPF 75+++ which seems a little excessive, but the more SPF, the better. Especially if you live in a tropical~ country like I do. I still have a bunch of sunblock to get through, but I can’t wait to try this one out. Maybe I’ll open it tomorrow… Hmm.
Scream it with me: MAKEUP! All of which I at least want to try. I’ve been a peddler of Revlon Lip Butters in my non-CF days, but I haven’t bought any since I tried going the cruelty-free route. They are still great products, though. I got the shade Wild Watermelon, which is awesome since it’s one of their new colors.
The too cool for school sample is just perfect, too, because I’ve been wanting to try this for a while. The After School BB Foundation Lunch Box sample (phew!) I got is in shade 1, which is described as “matte skin.” It has SPF 37 PA+++, which is always awesome. Hopefully, I’m not too dark for this.
Lastly, the Enchanted Eyeshadow trio I got is After Midnight, which features colors that look like they are intended for a blue smokey eye. I haven’t tried it yet and I haven’t heard of it before this box, but some people who’ve tried it said it wasn’t very pigmented. Which can’t be helped, really, at Php 179. But we shall see!
UM AWESOME. This is a foot mask that causes your feet skin to peel, revealing baby-skin feet. I have the worst feet. They are dry and gross and I have callouses with layers as deep as the Marianas Trench. Ahem.
Valid for a year… I’ll think about it.
And for my next trick—another box!
Say whaaaat? This big ol’ box is full of Dove products. I suppose that’s their brand feature this month.
Let me take you through all of the items I got.
Two bottles each of a shampoo and conditioner that aims to resurrect damaged hair. I don’t have a good relationship with the earlier Dove shampoos/conditioners, but the one in the gold-trimmed bottle that my sister used to use was awesome. So I won’t knock this until I’ve tried it.
As I am quite low maintenance with my hair, this is my first hair mask! I’ll let you know how it goes. It is supposed to “restore protein loss and bind proteins to the core of the hair.”
Not a fan of Dove soap (I know, right!), but I like feeling squeaky clean. This will probably go to my mom or sister, both of whom love this product already. 🙂
If there’s a whitening product I’m on board with, it’s got to be products for armpits. And maybe teeth. And scars. Ahem. Anyway! I currently use the deodorant stick by Dove, so I’m glad for back-ups! I don’t really like roll-ons, so I don’t know if I will try this out or pass it on to someone else instead.
And, that’s it! It’s so funny, but if you’re not extremely picky with products, it almost feels like you can kind of live off Php 580 on personal hygiene, etc. if you subscribe to the BDJ Box. Shampoo and conditioner? Check! Soap? Check! Deodorant? Check! Sunblock, makeup, feet pampering? Check, check, check!
Tellie pointed out that since Dove is a common brand that everyone and their mother has already tried, a lot of people might be turned off by the box (if they hadn’t included the other items, especially), but I actually really, really like this box. One of my favorites, I must say!
Even though there isn’t as many items in the “regular” box, they’re pretty much all things I want to try, which adds to the greatness of it. Quality over quantity, always. 🙂
Tellie also pointed out the annoying card reformat which doesn’t show some of the pertinent information like size/volume of the products, etc. I always appreciate it when the information is already laid out for me, especially when it comes to subscription boxes.
Thank you again to the BDJ Box Team! This has been one of my favorite boxes to date, for sure. 🙂 Now, onto try the products!
