Unboxing of: BDJ May 2015 Kiss Dry Goodbye Box

As the box goes "Kiss Dry Goodbye".  It old myself: "This is MY box!"  I am claiming it because you all know how dry my hair is, how dry my face is, how dry my skin is ---- yes, I'm a dry dude!  So as I excitedly opened BDJ's May box, I do have very high expectations!  (kayo kasi, laging super ganda ng box my expectations are getting higher by the month!)

My eyes gravitated towards a full pack of Nivea Gentle Facial Cleansing Wipes (Hooray!)  and the Dermal Face masks!  Then my mind went blank....there are quite a number of products or brands I haven't seen or heard off!  

Aloe Derma --- Check!
Himawari --- Check!

Oh, 2 brands lang pala! :P

According to BDJ, this month's box is all about using the right hair treatment, wash your body for that silky, smooth fell.  As you step out of the shower, we are expected to show off that white pearlies!  Then, a good scrub and facial products won't hurt for a healthy, fairer skin.  And of course, they added 1 makeup product (a blush) to achieve natural flushed face!  

As much as the box goes Kiss Dry Goodbye, I want to call it --- Kiss Summer Goodbye!  Because the rainy season is here and the products in the box are there to help revive the "lost summer"! 

Colgate Optic White Plus Shine
Php115.00 each
For someone who used to have gingivitis (a.k.a. weak gums), I am wary when it comes to using teeth whitening products!  BUT, I found a solution, I apply a good amount of gum protection toothpaste directly onto gums before I use any teeth-whitening products!  Very effective I tell you!  So I'm really excited to use the new Colgate Optic White Plus Shine!  Will share one tube to my sister --- hello sister!

Garnier Skin Naturals Light 
Complete Whitespeed Multi-Action Brightening Scrub 
Garnier Skin Naturals Light 
Complete Whitespeed Multi-Action Whitening SErum Cream 

My dry skin won't be a fan of this particular Garnier line (tried and tested) but this will definitely work for my sis-in-law who has combination skin with a couple of pores and blackheads peeking out!  I will share both of these products to her because sharing is loving!

Cetaphil Daily Advance Ultra Hydrating Lotion
Php675.00 for full size
In box: Sample size 0.5oz
 I personally dislike sample sized skincare product because I really can't tell if a product works well on me or not!  But, for the first time, this sample sized Cetaphil Ultra-hydrating lotion didn't bother me at all because I immediately put this in my bag for that instant touch-ups!  My heels are extremely dry when I wear sandals so this is definitely a good emergency solution!

Nivea Daily Essentials Gentle Facial Cleansing Wipes
I love these wipes and I've finished 2 full packs of it!  I use cleansing wipes a lot especially when I take photos for this blog!  Instead of running to the bathroom washing my face on each lipstick application, I use cleansing wipes instead!  These can remove makeup quite well!

Aloe Derma Pure Aloe Vera Gel
Truth be told, I am so scared of using any "Aloe" product when my hair was "ruined" using Aloe Vera shampoo.  I know, it was just ONE BIG mistake but it stayed in my mind forever!  Now that I'm older, and wiser *ahem*, I don't mind opening up again to see what Aloe Vera may do for my skin!  Especially if these comes in "organic" form.  The Aloe Vera Gel can be used to protect your skin from dryness and irritation as it effectively repairs damaged skin.  With it's gel-like texture, it'll be perfect for humid weather.

FS Powder Blush
Heard about this blush on how it is an inexpensive dupe for NARS Orgasm!  Will show you an FOTD next time using this!

Dermal Masks 
3 sheets 
Php140.00 each
 These masks are made in Korea and I've tried them and I love them!  No allergic reactions so far so I'm glad to get 3 masks in this box!

I've tried both Pure Savon and Cure and I love both brands!  Thankfully, I only need to put these in my "travel" kit so it'll be easier for me to lug my favorite brands when I travel.
As for Himawari, this is a new brand for me so I can't wait to give this a try.  Honestly though, I won't be able to know if this product will work or not because I can never tell with just 1 use!
