My First BDJBox: Beauty Blossoms (Special Edition Pixy Box) Unboxing

My first BDJ Box

My first BDJ Box

Weeeeeeh!!! After a long wait my first BDJBox finally arrived. I subscribe for this love since January, I get the April box cause the January to March boxes are all sold out. I was getting impatient but the wait is all worth it because the April box is a special edition box from Pixy, a new makeup line from Mandam Beauty, Tokyo a Japanese company mainly sold in Indonesia. It is made mainly to cater the exotic Asian beauty.

I am so excited to unbox this and am expecting full-sized products cause the box is quite heavy. I have high hopes for beauty boxes now since my first 2 boxes from the other kind of beauty box gave me full-sized products and since lots of bloggers are raving about BDJbox and how awesome the contents are. Now as I open the box I found the first standard contents of a BDJbox as of posted by other subscriber. A curated box, A welcome card and other handouts that explains the products and BDJ stickers which says “Don’t let anyone dull your sparkle”. I’m joining the Stick It To Win It Promo.

The box is so pretty in pink and products packaging are oh so chick. I’m reminded of my girly side since its been a while since I bought makeups with cute packaging. And look I was right the makeups are all in full sizes. Let us examine all 9 products one by one:

Pixy UV Whitening Two Way Cake Perfect Fit Compact in Tropical Beige

Pixy UV Whitening Two Way Cake Perfect Fit Compact in Tropical Beige

First from the box Pixy UV Whitening Two Way Cake Perfect Fit Compact. According to the product info two-way cake blends well for smooth and long-lasting base. It has squalene oil for whitening and prevents dry skin and SPF15 for skin protection from sun damage. Recommended for dry to normal skin types. It’s so nice that I get a compact powder with a mirror I’ve been meaning to get a compact with a big mirror since my kikay kit gets super cluttered with lots of products and I need to pack lighter so this is very handy. I don’t have to get a separate mirror. I got the shade Tropical Beige which is too dark for my skin I’ll probably use this for contouring.

Pixy UV Whitening Two Way Cake Perfect Matte Refill in Honey Beige

Pixy UV Whitening Two Way Cake Perfect Matte Refill in Honey Beige

Next another two-way cake which is a refill of Pixy UV Whitening Two Way Cake Perfect Matte. A lightweight powder that does not trigger blackheads formation and has natural extracts and antibacterial kanzo that makes it suitable for oily skin. It comes in Honey Beige that suits perfectly with my skin.

Pixy Ultimate Makeip Cake in Natural Buff

Pixy Ultimate Makeup Cake in Natural Buff

Third another compact from Pixy, the Ultimate Makeup Cake in Natural Buff. The lightest shade among the three base powders almost one shade lighter with my skin tone. This powder evenly covers the skin and absorbs oil to avoid unwanted shine. It claims also to be long lasting up to 8 hours. Hope it lives up to its promise cause I love long lasting make ups and its a hassle if they can’t stay up long enough to get me through the day without retouching every minute.

Next I got 3 different kinds of lipsticks from Pixy Colors of Delight Lipstick Silky Fit collection. They send it in different finishes Semi-Matte, Lasting Matte and Satin Lipsticks. And I must say their packaging are oh so cute, very Etude like. The shades of the lipsticks fits perfectly with my skin tone and they gave me a variety from dark red to pinkish. The Semi-Matte finish comes in Cinnamon Twist, Lating Matte in Rouge Tango and Satin Lipstick in Pinkish Peach. So pretty colors and they glide on smoothly.

Pixy Blush On in Brown Tea

I also got a blush in my favorite shade. Its called Brown Tea but its more in a coral shade. Its small and very compact to bring along on my kikay kit.

Pixy Color of Delight Eyeliner pencil in Black

Next is an eyeliner in black color. It very easy to use and glides swiftly. It make the eyes look brighter.

Pixy Colors of Delight Waterproof Voluminizing Marcara in Black

Last but not the least volumizing black mascara. This one lengthen and thickens the lashes. Its waterproof and long-wearing. I love this mascara, my sister used it already and the result is amazing.

Special Edition Snoe Glamourbox Unboxing

Special Edition Snoe Glamourbox

Another unboxing rave here!!! I just got a new package yesterday. I’ve been waiting for this since friday and now finally its here. I am so excited with this Glamourbox first beauty box for 2014 and I am so glad that it is special edition box from Snoe. I have seen this brand at SM North Edsa but haven’t tried to buy any of their products because I was thinking I can’t really try too many products that may harm the baby that I’m carrying right now. It was just recently that I found out that they actually have products that are safe even for preggies like me.

Glamourbox subscription announcement

A week before their subscriptions open up, I already seen their announcement on their site and I immediately set my mind to get this beauty box. I was kinda busy finishing my task at the office so I won’t have any pending work before I file my maternity leave so I almost forgot to subscribe for this box. Good thing I remembered and hurriedly pay for it over-the-counter at BDO. After my payment I got some confusions with my payment details so I had to email Glamourbox for it and they answered my emails eagerly. The Snoe box was almost out good thing they opened a few box for subscription. Lucky meeee!!! They said that the box will be released on friday and I was very impatiently waiting for it, counting the minutes and seconds of the day and constantly peeking through our window if a courier will arrive. At last here comes manong from Xend calling my name and I almost jump for it. LOL!

The Package -.- It's open due to the cramped handling of manong courrier

Lets start with the run down of the products that I got.

Hair Heroes Agent Zero Cleansing Serum

Hair Heroes Agent Zero Cleansing Serum

First is the Hair Heroes Agent Zero Cleansing Serum. Why Agent Zero? According to the product description its has zero fragrance, zero sulfate, zero silicone which makes it zero tears and zero irritation. It contains natural vegetable cleansers like aloe, seaweed, coconut and mayweed. It can be used from head to toe and is safe for babies, kids and adults with sensitive skin. Very timely for me, I can use it not only for myself but also for my baby after I gave birth. I got a full size as sample which is 250 ml that cost Php 599.00. Wow that almost covered the subscription fee.

Snoe White Beauty Bar in Organic Papaya

Snoe White Beauty Bar in Lightening Licorice

Next are the Snoe White Beauty Bars. These two soaps are mainly for whitening purpose which I’m not very found of since I love being naturally morena (tanned) but I might try using them to lighten dark spots and blemishes. I got traces of bacne and acne on my face that I want to eliminate and of course blaming genes and hormones I need to try  to get rid  of recurring dark underarm. I have tried using licorice soap before for my face and it works for me so I’m wishing these two will also works for me. They are made up of organic ingredients so they are very very safe to use. Both comes in full sizes of 150g which cost Php 139 each.

Body Ritual Recipe Whipped Body Frosting Lotion

Body Ritual Recipe Whipped Body Frosting Lotion

One of my favorite in the box is this super sweet smelling lotion. The Body Ritual Recipe Whipped Body Frosting Lotion. I got the Vanilla Bean and Butterscotch variant. It smells so sweet and so good that I wish I could eat it. I immediately tried it on my skin and when I first pump it it has the consistency of a whipped cream. First impression is its non-greasy and is quickly absorbed by the skin. I’ll make a in-depth review about this lotion next time. This is also in full size about 150g costing Php 249.

 

 

 

 

Fizzy Clean Foaming Hand Sanitizer

Fizzy Clean Foaming Hand Sanitizer

Another interesting product that is so unique for me is this Fizzy Clean Foaming Hand Sanitizer. This is not your typical hand sanitizer that has a gel or liquid consistency. Once you pump the bottle it become a foam that washes away the dirt and germs and leaves your hands clean and not dry. It is so entertaining to use this product. Guess what? Yeah its also in full size which is 50ml and cost Php 179.

 

 

 

 

Bedside Besobalm Deep Moisturizing Lip Treatment in Pink Pout Pucker

Bedside Besobalm Deep Moisturizing Lip Treatment in Pink Pout Pucker

Another one of my favorite now since I’m having problem with dry chapped lips over this very cold weather is this Bedside Besobalm Deep Moisturizing Lip Treatment in Pink Pout Pucker. This lip balm is very minty and a delight to have. At first use my lower lips become softer. It is said that it moisturize the lips up to eight hours. Perfect for night time application. Its also yes in full size about 4g and cost Php 249.

 

 

 

 

Poudre Extraordinaire Face Powder in Perfect Beige

Poudre Extraordinaire Face Powder in Perfect Beige

And last but not the least the only makeup in the box. LOL! The Poudre Extraordinaire face powder. This powder has Acai berry which has an anti-aging and anti-oxidant properties. This loose finishing powder not only sets makeup but it also claims to protect skin from free radicals and tightens and smoothens fine lines. It comes in 3 shades. Vanilla Creme (light), Perfect Beige (medium) and Warm Honey (dark). I got the perfect beige I haven’t tried yet if it will match my color and my tone. Will have to make a review for this. In all the products this is the only one that comes in a sample size but the full size is 35g which cost Php 799.

 

Special Edition Snoe Glamourbox product samples

Special Edition Snoe Glamourbox product samples

All in all I am so happy with the Special Edition Snoe Glamourbox, having 6 out 7 products that are in full sizes. The total amount of all the products excluding the sample size Poudre Extraordinaire is Php 1,554. That’s 959 savings considering the subscription fee of Php 595. Giving Glamourbox a two thumbs up. I’ll definitely subscribe again to their next beauty box. That’s it for today everyone. See yah!

Secret Santa Glamourbox Unboxing

Fresh out from the parcel

Fresh out from the parcel

Hi everyone! For my first official great find I would like to share to you my very first unboxing experience. You see subscription box has been around for a long time but it is just recently that I had joined the bandwagon after reading a lot of blogs from other people most specially MUE (Make-up Enthusiast) like me. The fact that you get to open a box and be surprised in what you are getting is enough for me to be encouraged to get one of these babies. It’s like opening a gift on Christmas day even if it’s not really Christmas day. And what good way to start joining but to order the Secret Santa box of Glamourbox for this December (a christmas gift for myself). So enough of these blah blah and lets start unboxing.

I received my very first subscription box courtesy of Glamourbox last Wednesday after I get back from my divisoria (The value shopping capital of the Philippines) adventure. I love how Glamourbox make sure that the package is very much secured. The main box is covered with transparent plastic and contained in another box before it was put in the parcel plastic bag (too bad I haven’t taken a picture of it).

Look how elegant and sturdy this curated box.

How elegantly looking the contents are, wrapped in a special peach paper

I opened my box like a little girl all grinning as I see the contents all covered in a special peach paper (don’t know if it’s a parchment paper of what). It looks so elegant it gives me an idea with how I would like my future church wedding giveaways should look like.

 Now for the much awaited unveiling. The first that will great you upon detaching the GB sticker is their welcome card. It contains the theme of the box and a message from the Glamourbox team. How festive this card is, do you feel the spirit of christmas?

At the back of the card are the descriptions of the products included in the box. It gives us information so we know what to expect with each product and how much the full size of each of these in case that we really like the product and decided to buy it.

 

 

First in the list is the Holika Holika Face 2 Change CC Cream. It comes in a small sample tube. I haven’t tried any CC Cream yet but according to other bloggers its much better than BB Cream because of its color adapting characteristics unlike BB creams that tends to be mostly in pink undertone and makes some look ashy. I was given a sample size of 5 ml worth Php 20.

 

Holika Holika Pure Mellow Multi-Puff
Next is the Holika Holika Pure Mellow Multi-Puff. This multi-colored sponge will remind you of  marshmallows. This can be used for applying cream-type products like foundation, bb creams, cc creams, cream blushes and the likes. I got a full size worth Php 265.Holika Holika Pure Mellow Multi-Puff

Holika Holika Pure Mellow Multi-Puff Holika Holika Pure Mellow Multi-Puff

My most favorite of all is this full size eau de toilette from Avon. The Avon Fragrance in Only Imagine smells like a floral bouquet. I first saw it in one of Avon’s brochure and instantly fell in love with it. I said to myself I gotta have this perfume, I’m so glad they include it in this box. A 50 ml bottle cost Php 1500. This is my everyday perfume since I got it. Smells so heavenly even my husband love it.

The Cream Factory Bath Cream

Another one of my favorite is The Cream Factory Bath Creams. I got their goat’s milk and acai berry variant. It reminds me of my ultimate favorite berry froyo. I haven’t use any bath creams. I guess I have to make a review with this one in another post. I got a 221 ml sample size about Php 266. The full size 768ml cost Php 699.

Strip It! Hair Removal Sugaring Kit

I also get sample of Strip It! Hair Removal Sugaring Kit and a 10% Discount Voucher. This is very timely to have since its already time for me to have some grooming. I would like to go to a salon to have it serviced but since I have this I might as well do it on my own, it’ll save me a lot of moola since the service cost around Php 700. The sugaring kit cost Php 350 for 350g.

Zen Zest Kitchen Fragrance in Choco Capuccino

Another new product that I get is Zen Zest Kitchen Fragrance in Choco Cappucino. This product promise to take away all those disgusting smell in your kitchen but for me I use it when I want my room or our living room to smell good. I really smells like choco cappucino. One of my pregnancy cravings is chocolate and I’m totally loving this product. I get a sample size of 50 ml about Php 80, after this sample I’ll get the full size which is Php 250 for 250 ml.

Paula's Choice Skincare Samples

 

I also get bonus products like 2 Paula’s Choice Skincare Samples which are the Slip into Silk Body Lotion which promises hydrate my skin with water-binding agents and plant and vitamin-based antioxidants and Skin Perfecting 2% BHA Liquid that evens skin tone, reduces redness and builds collagen and unclogs and diminished enlarged pores.

Another bonus product is a Fabulosa Necklace. This necklace is so cute even my officemates notice it. It’s perfect for my everyday office outfits.
