UNEXPECTED APRIL BDJ BOX!

Before you get confused from my words few blogs ago... Yes, I THOUGHT that was my last box since I only subscribed with 3 months, but I now figured since Jan-Feb is just one box, it counts as one. Hence, I received this last box from BDJ team!
The first time that came into mind was: "Oh yay, full of green!". Yes, I was delighted to see green for it has been scourging hot these days, I wanted something fresh in the eye. But then I saw that some of it comes in cucumber flavor and it all went downhill! I am allergic to cucumber. I get dizzy when I smell it, and gets crazy itchy if I accidentally eat it. So I told myself to make the most out of it, and probably give the cucumber products away to my friends, and relatives. 

The products:

MyChoice Products (The cucumber products):


MyChoice Bubble Shower Salt 2-in-1 225g (P100)

MyChoice Anti-Acne Cream 20g (P350)
This one, i'm not sure if it is cucumber product. I'm not willing to smell the thing, i'll wait until boyfie comes into my rescue in smelling thy product.

MyChoice Hand and Body Lotion 100mL (P70)
I've had a similar product from this line, although I got a mango flavor, which is nice. :)

MyChoice Pure Herbal Soap 100g (P55)
This one is definitely a no-no to me. Anyone up for this soap? I'm giving it away for freeeee. :)


Asian Secrets Lulur Products:

Asian Secret Lulur Whitening Body Scrub 20ml (P15)
This is a must for the summer season. Lulur body scrub will make you feel refreshed and revitalized. Exfoliating dead skin and it will reveal a whiter and fairer skin! Will definitely try this one.

Asian Secret Lulur Whitening Facial Scrub 100g (P120)
I still the the Ponds facial scrub so this one is still on the queued line. I hope expiration date would not be a problem in the future.

Tony Moly Intense Foot Mask 18ml (P198)
I'm giving this one to my ever hardworking mom so that she can give her tired feet some TLC once in a while.

Mustela Products:
Top Left: Mustela 2-in-1 Hair and Body Wash (200g P520)
Top Right: Mustela Hydra Bebe Body Lotion (300ml P790)
Bottom: Mustela Stretch Marks Double Action (150ml P1750)
 I loooove these products, especially the stretch mark cream! I started using it the moment that I opened the box! That's how much I looove the product.

FS Cosmetics Lash Extravagance Mascara 9g (P625)
I heard that this is a good mascara. I'll use this one instead of my usual Benefit Mascara in times of extravagance. ;) Keeping in mind that I already have a fabulous mascara on hand, will try to use this on special occasions.

Revlon Highlighting Pallete 7.5g (P60)
I wanted to have highlighting pallete pretty much since I got addicted to make up videos on youtube. It would definitely help me highlight my face, ready for summer nights!


(Not pictured)
Tony Moly Luminous Glow Aura CC Cream, 30ml (P1098)
This is actually a bonus item in the box and I wanted to try right away! I've been introduced to BB creams pretty much late and now I'm itching to try CC creams! Based on my korean friends, CC creams are waaaay better than BB creams! Will it illuminate my face? Oh dear, I hope so!


So there you have it! My unexpected BDJ Box!
Under the circumstances of not enjoying half of the box because - cucumber -, I would rate this months' box...

SOME CHANGES

Hello everyone!
As you might know, Christian is now on board with this blogging thing.
Since he's part of the blog now, we might need to decide some few "drastic" change for him to be accommodated to the blog.

First of the list, is the side bar, which will be the indicator of the bloggers of the blog (duh?), I've already added blue buttons for his social networking sites, and i'm still working on his photo.
Second, is the header. We are looking for someone who can do our artwork per se. It's a commission thing and if we ever decided on the header, we will change it right away.
Third, in line with the header, comes with the change of the title blog itself. Ofcourse, I cannot change the URL of the blog but I can change the title of the blog. Who knows, we might come up with a solution wherein we would transfer everything to a new blog, or a new domain. We're still learning more about it.

I'm not 100% sure about the domain thing, but we'll keep you on the loop. We'll start the blogging soon as possible! We are taking it slowly but surely. ;)


'till the next post!

6 YEARS!!! and revision to the blog :D

Hi guys! Christian here! It is my first time blogging and I hope this won't be the last.
 I am a first year Law student. I wanted to write because I wanted to challenge myself. I found it interesting to write, as it would be beneficial to me in the future. I thought to myself that instead of letting her (Karla) blog all by herself, I thought it would be great to give some advice/review based on my experience for a change and help Karla with the structure of the blog. I also love eating, so hope for more food review from both of us! I decided to join Karla in blogsphere as a gift for our 6th year anniversary. I feel that we have so much to share to the world but with so little time, blogging is one way of sharing it to you. We have so many plans for the future and we wanted to share our adventures together. Be it relationship advice, food reviews, movie reviews, book reviews, political views, and anything under the sun that is interesting and NEW!!! Look forward for further blogs to come and i'll blog soon!

PONDS BEAUTY: An Exclusive from BDJBOX

[UPDATE: This was a back log post that I supposed to publish 2 weeks ago. But I had a little difficulty juggling my time with part time work and studying that I had forgotten to post this, hence, you may see the "March" side of me. Aside from that, supposedly, Christian is scheduled to make his first blog last month but we halted it due to various reasons. One is that he's in Law School and he had his "finals week" so he's almost untouchable throughout the whole month. Hence, he'll make his first blog next week, after he's done dealing with his case digest and whatever Law School needs him to do. I'm so sorry for the inconvenience... Enjoy this post and HELLO SUMMER!]

March, for me, is a month full of surprises. It seems like this Month is my lucky month. But, just like a roller coaster, there were moments when I effin feel sad.. or disappointed... sometime happy but disappointed. This is the feeling I got when I was told that my March BDJBox came a week ago. I'm sad because this is my last subscription to BDJ, I did not renew my subscription for I realize that I am FUNemployed. I cannot risk spending all of my "small and not daily" allowance for the subscription. But I do hope that this won't be the last time for this year, to have another subscription with BDJ. So much for being an online student who doesn't even go out that much nowadays. *Boo-hoo*
 I'm happy that it came on time and it contains full size products, but i'm slightly disappointed because we all knew that Ponds is very accessible. You can buy it everywhere (i.e. Dept Store, Watson, Mercury, Grocery etc etc.) Basically, you see it everyday. I was hoping for a summer exclusive because after all, it's almost summer. But anyway, there is nothing I could do, my opinion would not matter anyway. #dramaniate haha


Full-size products of Ponds


Ponds Pearl Cleansing Gel (50g free - 100g Php 155)

Let's start with the cleansing gel. During my teenage years, when pimples pops in my face like cray cray, I use Ponds and honestly, it did not help that much... more like 10% or something. But that was the old product. I was told that this newest product of Ponds is the real deal. I will definitely try it and I will give the other tube to my mom (who is btw, an obsessed fan of Ponds products)... or we can share. I don't know... let's see.



Ponds Flawless White BB+ Cream (25g - Php 299 ea)

I don't know if you know, but haven't had any experience of using BB creams. If life happens, this product could be the first one. I am just relieved that this comes with two tones so I can have a trial and error on both. *yes I know! I don't know my complexion! bury me nao! haha!*



Ponds Flawless White Re-Brightening Night Cream (50g - Php 340)

Now this is something that I can look forward to. I haven't been using night cream and I am itching to use one. As of writing, I haven't use it but I will... starting next week!


Ponds Flawless White Dewy Rose Gel (50g - Php 399)

I love this product! I have been using this since I got one two small samples from September's BDJ BOX. I also use it as a night cream in times of need. No words needed, I love this product... so much!



Ponds Flawless White Ultra Luminous Serum (30ml - Php 480)

Lastly, this! Okay, I am no familiar with this kind of product. I thought you use serum on hair, now you have one for face?! Uhh.. okay... cool. Help me out here girls! This look promising but I effin' don't know how to use it... properly!





At the end, I cannot fully say that I did not enjoy/feel grateful because I had these awesome products without me going out to a beauty store and what not. I am happy, and grateful for having subscribe to BDJ. This is not a goodbye, its more of a "see you later" "i'll be back bitches!" kind of a comeback.
Again, for me, I halfly (Half yet happily) enjoyed this box... but i'm pretty sure my mom would freak out of happiness when she see this. #PondsGirlForeverDawSiyaEh
