I’m baaaack! A day late actually since I had to go to the hospital yesterday but nonetheless, I’m back and hopefully, more active than before. 🙂 After the stressful 5-month review, packages have piled up in my room so expect a lot of hauls, unboxing and review posts in the coming days. Some, like this one, are a bit late but that never stopped me from posting my overdue BDJ Unboxing posts before what the heck. Haha. It’s already mid-October and what I’ll be sharing with you is last month’s box. Hey, the contents are still worth sharing. 🙂
The September box was HUGE! It’s the same size as the previous exclusive boxes that BDJ released – about twice the size of their regular boxes. It’s heavy, too, which is a good sign because it means I’ll be getting a lot of full-sized products as opposed to just samples and sachets. Like I said, I’ve been living in an apartment in Manila during the review season so I wasn’t able to open my packages until this weekend. I already saw a lot of photos of last month’s box so I already know what’s inside but BDJ Boxes never lose their touch – it’s still exciting to open it. 🙂
Funny how the sticker matched my current mantra. If you’re following me on Instagram, you’d notice that I’ve recently joined the #100HappyDays Challenge wherein you’d snap and share a photo of someone/something somehow made you smile. I doesn’t have to be grand – maybe a random act of kindness from a stranger, a sweet moment you wish to cherish or even as small as the Starbucks barista finally spelling your name right. Yes, my name is spelled with TWO “L’s” thank you. Haha. Anyway, I started doing the challenge with this motto in mind. Sometimes we get too preoccupied or we’re going about our daily lives in a rush that we fail to notice small things. I took the challenge not to boast about how happy I am everyday because honestly, I’m not.. rather because I want to be able the appreciate the small things. I highly encourage everyone to do the challenge, too. You’ll be amazed by how blessed you’ll feel after. <3
Going back to the box: A lot of the contents are actually daily essentials rather than beauty innovations as the theme indicated. Some are actually staple products that are reformulated like Jergens, Pond’s and the Cream Silk Conditioners. You don’t get a lot of high-end brands in this bunch but it’s nice to note that almost everything here is full-sized. And I think it’s safe to say that these products would not go to waste because even if you don’t want to use them personally, you’d always find someone who uses these brands. A very safe set, indeed.
Cream Silk Daily Treatment Conditioner (Php 134, 180ml) – “This product combines the benefits of a weekly hair treatment with the speed of a daily conditioner.
