Got the BDJ Box June 2014 edition yesterday and I was surprised to see that it’s an exclusive Benefit BDJ Box once again. I wasn’t too impressed with their first Benefit box last March but that didn’t keep me from getting all excited about this one.
I love BDJ Box’s customized brand covers! They make unboxing even more exciting!
Okay shall we start? This Benefit box contains two 3ml tubes of The Porefessional worth P218 each (the full size tube is 22ml and sells for P1,600).
Then there’s this cute little 3ml jar of Benefit It’s Potent Eye Cream (P1,800 for a 14.2ml jar) that’s worth about P380.
I’m excited about these two: Benetint and Lollitint. They’re two of Benefit’s most-raved-about makeup products. Both are rosy colored stains which can be used on the lips and cheeks. Both cost P1,700 for a full-sized 12.5ml bottle and so these 2.5ml samplers are worth P340 each.
Then there’s a sample tube of concealer, Benefit Fake Up (P1,600 for a full-sized 3.5g product) that’s worth P228. It’s in 02 Medium, I hope it’s the right shade for me! I’m still looking for the perfect concealer, I hope this is the one.
Last of the product samples but definitely not the least are Benefit Stay Flawless 15-Hour Primer (P1,900 for a 15.5g full-sized tube) and Big Easy BB Cream (P2,000 for a 35ml full-sized tube). They’re worth P147 and P171 respectively.
Included in the box are Benefit’s Spring 2014 product catalog and two vouchers for a FREE makeupper (I’m guessing that’s a makeover) and a brow wax service for a discounted rate of P300 with any product purchase. These are redeemable at Benefit Greenbelt 5, Trinoma, SM Mall of Asia, Rustans Makati, and Rustans Shangrila.
Here’s everything I got from the June 2014 BDJ Box! Yes, I’m loving them, because these are actually travel-sized samples which I can use a few times so I can see if the product really works for me… not single-use sachets which are hard to gauge.
As promised, I’ll be including mini-reviews of at least one product in the box with each unboxing. I choose Benefit The Porefessional, a product that minimizes pores. It’s a flesh-colored silicone-based cream that supposedly makes pores disappear.
Let’s put it to a test shall we? Here’s the middle of my forehead and the icky unsightly pores before and after applying Benefit The Porefessional. What do you think? Yes, it did make my pores disappear but I found it to be a tad greasy, I would’ve liked something like this to be more matte.
The cash value of all the products in this box is around P1,800+. That’s over 3x the subscription price. I actually love this box because I’m interested in all the products plus the samples are sized in such a way that I can try each maybe 3-5x (some even more). I’m sure that’s enough to help me decide if the full-sized versions are for me or not. This box definitely makes up for the disappointing one last March! Thank you BDJ Box! I love it! 😀
