Unboxing November Box: an exclusive from Benefit!

For something that was delivered on time, I find myself slacking to post this blog. But now, after almost 2 weeks, I bring to you, my BDJ November Box! This month, they gave us an exclusive box from Benefit!

To be honest, I knew this line way before, I used pore-fessional last year but most of the products are new to me, and I think this is the perfect time to have a trial an error on the products since the package contains sample sizes which is perfect for a trial and error. Also these minis are perfect for your to-go kits! Less hassle on your make-up kit! 

Products:
Bathina Scented Body Mist
When I opened the box, the first thing I have to pick was the curation card. The card says that I should be having a Hydrating Oil Mist, but I received the Body Mist instead
[Update: Our lovely BDJ Team emailed a letter of apology regarding this case. It's done, it's a win anyway!]

Big Easy Complexion Perfector (2 sample size)
Perfect timing for this perfector because I have been on search for a perfect perfector! I just wish that this would do justice on my face because I would gladly spend $$$ for this thing. 

High Beam Complexion Enhancer
This highlighter gives me the perfect shine on my face, it has a luminous glow which give the perfect highlight on my face. Downside for me was at first, it was a bit watery but then when it settles on your skin, it blends and it dries quickly.

POREfessional pro Balm
Yes, I've been using this pore minimizer for a year and I stopped because I find it pricey for a college student (at that time, I was a college student who struggles on a 300Php/day). Now this product is back in my life and I wanted to see if this still works for me.

They're Real! Push-Up Liner
I have to be honest with you, I have no reasons whatsoever to use this liner right now because I am loving the FS Gel Liner from September BDJ Box! It's going to be a hectic December so let's see if I can squeeze a day-off to my gel liner and use this instead, I will let you know on my IG!

They're Real Mascara
Finally! My Maybelline Mascara is sooo graduating and I finally have the means to say goodbye to it! I think the liner plus this mascara would be a good combination for a dramatic eyes.

Posiebalm Hydrating Lip Balm
It's true when they say it is hydrating because I saw a perspiration kind of thing happening on the balm right after I tried this product. Will definitely use this in times of when I wanted to achieve that "No Make-Up" Make-Up look.

It's Potent! Eye Cream
Instant Comeback Facial Serum
I'm a sucker for eye cream! At nights when I can't force myself to sleep, I find myself fidgeting on my face then sooner or later, I have eye cream or face cream on me! This one is a perfect timing for me too since I can see my dark eyebags are saying hello to me since I've been awake for most of the nights due to my online classes. Phew! What a life saver! On the other hand, I am not quite sure of the Facial Serum though. Me and serums aren't quite compatible yet at the moment but i'm working on it.

Hello Gorgeous! Voucher
Yaay for free makeupper and brow consultation! BROW CONSULTATION! Brow is my life, ICYMI.

In a nutshell, I appreciate that this is an exclusive box, perfect timing for me and my needs, and I love the fact that it's in small size. It's light, easy to use, and cute! It brings out the girly girl in me, honestly!

Birthday Package: Unboxing October BDJ Box

October is a special month for me, not only because it's my birthday but also... IT'S MY BIRTHDAY!
What?! It's worth repeating. ☺
Anyway, I know i'm posting this late and I can tell you the reason why...
INTERNET... SUCKS.
+ the box was delivered (dramatically) last week only.
I was actually a bit worried because the way going to my place (Litex area) is cramped with bumper to bumper traffic with mostly trash trucks and delivery trucks.
So, kudos to Kuya Delivery for doing the heroic thing and for doing his job even if it means delivering this heavy package at night!

This month, I was a bit shocked to see two boxes. Two. Heavy. Boxes. At first I actually thought, "Hala ano to, baka may libre akong box kasi birthday ko! haha!" but then soon after I opened it, I got the real answer why:
FULL SIZE PRODUCTS!
either way it's a win win situation! :)




The first box contained these two products from Dial. To be honest with you, this is my first time I've heard/seen that the line also have body wash, I really thought that they only have a soap. 


The other products of the other box:
Promo from Strip (Ministry of waxing) which i'm doubting to use because I haven't been there yet. (In the group picture above)

I like the packaging of this dove product. Let me tell you something, last month's dove product which is the hair vitamin is a total fail. It's quite a bit messy to use because "oil" everywhere! I was excited to see a different dove product because I've been thinking about using dove as my major brand of "everything". I cannot wait to use this and i'll let you know soonest as possible.

This L'oreal serum and cream is the smallest among the pack. I mean, I understand that this is just the sample size and the original is quite expensive but nevertheless, this will have a good place in my suesh make up box for future use!

Next product, the ever trusted "emergency oh no i forgot my eye shadow pallete" revlon eyeshadow.

For those of you who are not fond of using smoky/blending sort of kind of eyes, this is your product to use, it has instructions on the bottom as to where you should put eye shadow correctly.

Next is YR (Yves Rocher) creams that I cannot finish for sure because even though it is just a sample size, it's too many and too risky to use right away. I don't know if it is just the booze talking but i'll be having a hard time dealing with this. Haha! Plus it's gel cream... i'm not very fond of gel cream. 

Last but not the least, the Spa Salt in flavor of mango! TBH, I don't know how to use this so if anyone out there knows how to use this, please let me know! 

Overall, i'm impressed with the full sized products and I like it that you focused on body care. BUT I would like it even more if you focus on make up, perhaps? :)
There's only one downer to this gift though... 
There's no curation card in my box. :(

But that's okay, i'm still happy that I got the box and I cannot wait for the November box which is sadly my last box this year. I'm not entirely sure if I would continue subscribing for next year, until then i'll let you know! :)
