EVENTS: The BDJ Box Launch

I was one of the few very lucky women to have been invited to the launch of the BDJ Box at Slice Café High Street. It was a very intimate event shared with the best beauty bloggers and beauty editors in Manila.

As I was waiting for the event to start, I was able to have a wonderful chat (worth recording and blogged about! Haha!) with like-minded, empowered women. Felt so good to be amongst ladies who think the same way I do and who are indeed very successful in their own right.

Empowered Women!

The event was hosted by Kat Dy, managing director of the BDJ Box Beauty  Ministry.

I was so excited to open the BDJ Box given to me at the event! It was quite heavy and looked so pretty in its 'Parisian Pretty' theme.

Here’s a peek on what’s inside the box:

It comes with stickers that say “I’m not beautiful like YOU, I’m beautiful like ME!” Super cute, I placed one sticker on my pocket  mirror.

Here are all the products!

There are several deluxe sized products (ones that I would love to try out) and some really good sample sized ones that are good enough for several uses.

1. Garnier Skin Naturals Pure Active Multi-Action Scrub (50 ml)
2. Syoss Anti-Dandruff Control Shampoo (100 ml)
3. Syoss Anti-Dandruff  Control Conditioner (100 ml)
4. L'Oreal Paris Total Repair 5 - Daily Repairing Treatment (50ml)

5. Calvin Klein Eternity Aqua (1.2ml)
6. L'Oreal Lucent Magique Skin Illuminating BB Cream (5ml)
7. L'Oreal Revitalift Intensive Night Repair Essence (5ml)
8. Yves Rocher 24H Intense Hydrating Gel Cream (15ml)

9. Garnier Skin Naturals Ligjt Whiten & Even Moisturizing Cream (8ml x 8 packs)

I'm super happy with the contents of the box. Some products I am already familiar with and love to use, and some I am excited to try out.

BDJ Box is the brainchild of Darlyn Ty, the same founder and creator of the Belle De Jour Power Planner. Yes, that awesome planner with oodles of coupons.

 (and yes I was given my own planner... Woohoo! Thanks BDJ)
