3 days before my birthday! Is it weird that I’m counting down the days to my birthday as if its as important as Christmas? HAHA. I’m not really excited about my birthday, I’m excited about spending it with my family and then shopping for gifts with my boyfriend after the intimate lunch. It’s been our “sort of tradition”.. shopping on my birthday. And like I said, I sooo love shopping for gifts. 🙂
Oooh! Speaking of gifts, I got an early birthday/Christmas gift from the mail the other day. It would be utterly pointless for me to ask you to guess it because, duh, it’s obviously BDJ’s Elite Box Holiday Edition. Yehey! If you know someone who is a beauty enthusiast like me, get her this exact box. I’m sure she’ll love you for it. <3
I know most of you have already heard of BDX Boxes and how it works. But for the benefit of those who are new, here’s the catch: you pay a monthly subscription fee of Php 580 and then you’ll receive a well-curated box right at your doorstep. Everything in it is a surprise but rest assured that the products’ worth inside your box is waaay more than the fee you paid. Based from my experience, the contents’ value could go as high 5 times the actual value paid which is pretty amazing, if you ask me!
To up the ante, BDJ Box also releases Elite Boxes every other month or so. From the name itself “elite”, it’s obviously more expensive than their ordinary monthly subscription box but, of course, the products inside the Elite Boxes cost more. For a Php 1,880 box, you get more than Php 6,000-worth of products! Best part is that the contents of each Elite Box will be posted before it is opened for subscription – you can immediately decide if they’re worth your money. 🙂
I’m terribly sorry if I sounded too enthusiastic for a second there. I’mgenuinely a huge fan of BDJ Box. I swear, not only did I subscribe for months but I also encouraged my cousins to do the same. It’s one of the best and most cost-efficient ways to try new products and brands without spending a lot.
Okay, moving on.. this month’s Elite Box is L’Oreal-exclusive. It contains nothing but the most high-end products of this well-known drugstore brand. I’m most excited about trying the hair oil. It looks very promising, don’t you think? 🙂
Excited to see what I got from my Holiday Glam Extraordinare box? 🙂

That’s 11 products in total (9 full size and 2 deluxe samples)
from my December L’Oreal-exclusive box. You know I’m all about the math so let’s compute how much its worth? Ding ding ding!
The contents of the box is worth Php 5,678
– excluding the samples – and you can get this for only Php 1,880! Money-wise, the September Elite Box (Read my unboxing HERE)
is worth more but given that some, if not most, of the products in this Holiday Box is actually the high-end products of L’Oreal, I believe it’s worth it. For me personally, I like this more than the previous Elite Box. But hey, to each their own. *wink!
