Oh my, it’s been a while since I last shared a haul post here. Heck, it’s been a while since I last bought anything for myself. I can’t wait for the board exams to be over and done with – I can’t explain how stressful the last few months have been for me. In less than 3 weeks, I’ll be taking what seems to be the hardest exam I’ll ever have take in my entire life. I can already feel the pressure especially with the job interview I have for tomorrow. Sheesh! I’m freaking out again! So, as always, I turn to my blog to calm myself. I love how this blog has been my release – my little paradise away from all the pressure. <3
Talking about how busy I was for months.. I owe you a lot of reviews and whatnot. But before we get to that, I’ll start with this overdue BDJ Unboxing post. This is actually last month’s box but like I always say it’s better late than never. Excuses, I know. Haha. You can’t blame a girl for prioritizing her studies, can you? 😛
A lot of things have changed but one thing hasn’t – my excitement every time I receive a surprise package. I find it sweet when I get random presents. Well, who doesn’t? I know not one person who hate surprises but I do know one who is incredible in giving them – BDJ Box. Knowing that you’ll be receiving a package every month is way different from knowing exactly WHAT you’ll get in the package, really. BDJ has done a great job in curating monthly boxes for their Bellas and it’s something that I honestly look forward to every month.
I know you’ve already seen this from other blog posts before but what the heck. I’m still thrilled to show you that I got from last month’s BDJ Box so here goes. 😀
L’Oreal Professionel Mythic Oil (Deluxe Sample | Php 995, 120 ml) – “Enriched with a special blend of Avocado and Grape Seed Oil, L’Oreal Professionel Mythic Oil cares and pampers all hair types. Nourishing even the finest hair, the formula leaves hair shiny and supple.”
L’Oreal Professionel Mythic Oil Nourishing Masque (Deluxe Sample | Php 1095, 200ml) – “This masque has a paraben-free formula with Argan Oil and Cotton Seed Oil that works to balance hair’s natural oil levels, targeting very dry ends to deliver intense nourishment for deeply nourished, disciplined and glowing hair.”
Garnier Color Naturals (Php 199, 100ml) – “Get natural looking and long-lasting color, while leaving your hair soft and silky. It’s easy to apply, non-drip cream formula is enriched with natural olive oil to nourish your hair as it colors.”

Shiseido Ultimune Power Infusing Concentrate (Deluxe Sample | Php 3500, 30ml) – “Boost your underlying beauty with this luxurious essence from Shiseido. It has the Ultimune complex that was developed from 20 years of dermatological research. With just one week of daily use, skin is supple and glows with health.”

Blo Vouchers (Php 400) – “Get 20% off on any blo’s 7 signature hairstyles and a free Deep Conditiontioning Treatment for every blo out!”
There’s no shadow of a doubt that in terms of value, this box, like all the previous BDJ Boxes, is worth more than its monthly subscription price of Php580. Oh look, I don’t even have to be a CPA to know that. Haha. However, I think this particular box somehow lost the “oomph factor”. The products are great and potentially useful to most girls but for those who are even remotely vain would tell you that they like picking out their own haircare products.
I personally have my own favorites that I jokingly refer to as my “haircare army” because they battle hair dryness on a daily basis and my hair would seriously die without them! Haha. But for those who are new or don’t really have any favorite yet, the L’Oreal Mythic Oil duo would be a worthy benchmark from which they could measure all the other products they try next. 🙂
Overall I think the August BDJ Box was really nice – not the best BDJ Box by far, though, since they kinda had a lot of better boxes before. But that’s the think about doing a good job; it’s always a challenge to outdo yourself. They’re still better than most subscription boxes in the country so I’d still give this box a thumbs up. *wink
