Unboxing: BDJBox Elite for December 2016 (Celeteque Extravaganza!)

It’s been a long time since my last BDJ Box. I think my last box was in May 2013. Oh boy. That was a lifetime ago.

I think the reason why I discontinued with the boxes was because they sold out really fast. Plus at some point, they did stop their subscription. I think.

Anyway, I decided to get one of their Elite Boxes that sells for P1,480. This was much more expensive that the previous boxes I own which only ranged from 400-ish to 600-ish, I think.

Well, BDJ promised a return of 6x more in the amount of the content of the box compared to the price of the box itself. There were also speculations in their FB page that the products will be from Celeteque (BDJ posts some teasers). I like the skin products of Celeteque, and I’ve been meaning to try their make ups, so this was absolutely perfect. Sure, sign me in!

BDJ also has a more expensive subscription, the BDJ Box Luxe, but those sell for a much pricier P3,750. But unlike their Elite Boxes, you know exactly what you’ll get in Luxe. Right now, their Luxe boxes include Elizabeth Arden products.

Anyway, here we go!

First, the box. Of course.

Whomp. That’s only the jacket. Here’s the ACTUAL box:

GASP!

Don’t mind if I do, box.

I was welcomed by these info sheets with… infos.

At the back of the cards are information about the products as well as SRPs. I will be posting them below with the products. I think some of them are super problematic (like inconsistencies in the grams/ml of products), but I’ll be posting everything below verbatim.

There are also some ‘how to use’ cards which come in handy.

“On both eyelids” I love how this card is super thorough.

Mine comes in the shade natural, which is the middle of its three shades. It also comes in light porcelain (the lightest) and deep beige (the darkest).

Since I don’t use powder outside of my daily morning routine, I might just use this as a setting powder. However, the compact, however bulky, is portable enough for a touch up since it comes with a powder puff and a mirror. I prefer to apply my powder with brush, though.
