Unboxing My First Ever BDJ Box

My first BDJ box is dedicated to YOU who loves to travel!  This box was handpicked for this Holiday season!  The products that we would love to take with us during travel.  

Personally, I have my own "stash of samples" for travel and I can't stress how it made my travel life comfortable!  That's the huge reason why I won the "smallest kikay kit" contest during our Tagaytay trip with fellow blogger friends (a.k.a. Team UBE).  So please, don't throw away those samples!  Even Mr. AMW is starting to enjoy these tiny samples as we definitely have more luggage space for SHOPPING! :D

Let's get back to my BDJ box! :)

The size of the box is a tad bit bigger than my hand, so the size is just right!  Not too big nor small and as soon as I opened up the box....


It felt like Christmas as the box was packed with full size and sample sizes from skincare, to proper hygiene, fragrance and a lot more!


An overview of BDJ's November Box

I know the overall photo could get a bit overwhelming so I've pictured the products separately sharing my thoughts on each!

2 sample tubes of Shiseido Extra Gentle Cleansing Foam 
1 x Shiseido Benefiance Wrinkle Resist24 Day Cream
Full Size 150ml of Cleansing Foam costs Php1,850.00 (approx $46.25)
For any samples of Shiseido skincare puts me back to my Hong Kong shopping days!  These tiny samples can last you 3-5 days and with the brand, you can definitely see results that's why these were selling hotcakes in Sasa and Bonjour shops in Hong Kong! 


2 sample bars of L'Occitane Extra Gentle Milk Soap  
Full Size 250g costs Php595.00 (approx $14.85)
I have never tried L'Occitane soaps so I'm quite excited with these 2 sample bars!  These are similar size to the hand soaps we get on hotels so a sample bar can last me at least a week!

Full Size 50ml Physiogel Hypo-allergenic Intensive Cream
Full Size costs Php517.00 (approx $12.92)
 Hubby grabbed this from me in an instant as he's been a loyal user of Physiogel.  He may have tried a lot of other brands but he goes back to Physiogel once in awhile as this brand works for his skin!  He put this inside his bag and told me he'll take this with him at work!  (great job Nikki!  I'm a good influence!)


1 Full Size Garnier Light Overnight Whitening Peeling Cream
2 samples of  Garnier Light Complete Whitening Cream
Garnier Light Complete Whitening Cream 50ml 
costs Php229.00 (approx $5.73)
Both the full size and sample sizes are sold in major supermarkets and drugstores nationwide.  Both products can last you long to be able to know if the product works for you or not!


Full Size Yuka Non-Acetone Wipes, 35sheets
Php68.00 (approx $1.70)
 I haven't heard or seen the brand before so it's nice to try something new for a change!  I've always been intrigued with non-acetone based nail polish remover!  The best part about this cute product is the non-drying factor plus no extra cotton is needed!  No mess, no spills!  Perfect for travel!  

 I will definitely post a review once I'm done trying this out!

2 pcs Nippon Cleansing Sponge
10-piece pack costs Php325.00 (approx $8.13)
I have used a lot of the Nippon Cleansing Sponges and I'm very happy with the quality.  I use these to wash my body, same sponge to deep clean my brushes and last but not the least, you can use this sponge for your face!

Sample tube of Dentiste Plus White Vitamin C and Xylitol
Full size costs Php395.00 (approx $9.88)
 This brand of toothpaste prides on having 14 kinds of premium natural extracts and works best in inhibiting bacteria growth!  One tiny tube can last you 2 days of morning and evening tooth-brushing!

At least, you get to test out the taste of the toothbrush before purchasing a full size!

1 sample size of Calvin Klein beauty Perfume
Full size bottle 100ml costs Php5,498.00 (approx $137.45)
 I find these tiny spritz sample scents are so handy especially during travel!  I used to just lug 1 scent for a week's travel and with these tiny samples?  I can use 7 different scents for 7 days without having problems at the airport!  (okay, that's a bit too much but you get the drift!)

1 x sample tube of L'Oreal Men Expert 
Hydra Energetic Multi Action 8 Cleanser
 Another tiny tube of skincare that Mr. AMW can take with him during travel.  This will last up to 2-3 days depending on how much you use or how big your man's face is!  :) 

Aside from all the full sized and sample sizes of products stated above, the BDJ box is filled with loads of coupons!  One coupon that made this box worth it is ----

Strip Upperlip Wax for Free

Since we're on the topic of Shiseido, there are 3 coupons for our Shiseido loyalists to use!
  • 15% discount for purchases at least Php5,000 (regular items)
  • Free quick facial for a minimum of Php2,000 purchase (regular items)
  • Free product sample for any regular item purchase.
Too bad though as all these Shiseido coupons ends December 31, 2012.  I just don't have enough time to go out nowadays!

Aside from Shiseido coupons, there are also coupons for our tresses!  Azta Salon Gift Card that expires on March 31, 2013.  Inside details as follows ---
  • Php1,000 off the price for INOA hair color services.  (I wish I could use this after I give birth on April!  This is my favorite hair color service!)
  • Php2,000 off the price for L'Oreal X-tenso Moisturist Digital Perm and Rebonding Services. (Another great deal!  I've tried L"Oreal X-tenso service in the past and so far, my hair is still doing ok!)

Last but not the least, an extra coupon from L'Occitane!  Thank goodness this coupon expires January 31, 2013!
  • 10% off for a minimum purchase of Php1,000. 

How do you like my December BDJ Box?  Have you subscribed from them?  Are you happy with your box?
So far, I am quite impressed with the number of products included in the box as there were indeed a lot of them for me and my loved ones to try!  Some of the samples I guess are just too small for me to gauge if the products work for me or not but the bigger sized and full sized samples made up for it! 

Monthly subscription costs Php480.00 (approx $12.00).
