Unboxing: BDJ Elite Box+I'm Giving Away One BDJ Elite Box Via Instagram!
The kind of samples that I really enjoy are full- sized samples or the deluxe- sized ones. (preferably nothing below 15ml) Because it takes a while for my skin to respond to products and even if it reacts quickly, I don't believe that you'll see results after 4 days to a week of using a 5ml or sachet sample.
I got pretty excited when BDJ has finally announced that they have the Elite Box, a beauty sampling box chock- full of deluxe and full- sized samples. It's for the person whose skin behaves the same way as mine, and for those who want to level up their beauty sampling experience.
Now this box is the priciest of them all-as the name implies, it's an ELITE box. The monthly subscription rate for this box is P1,950.00.

Voila! Full and deluxe- sized goodies! After I opened the box, it felt like I went shopping for beauty stuff!
Anyway, the theme for the first- ever Elite box is Summer Indulgence, and you get 9 items that are very much apt for the season:
Celeteque Anti- Wrinkle Ultra- Hydrating Cleansing Oil (Full Size)
Davines Nounou Nourishing Illuminating Shampoo (Deluxe Sample)
Davines Nounou Nourishing Illuminating Conditioner (Deluxe Sample)
Ahava Essential Day Moisturizer (Deluxe Sample)
ISkin New York Daily Sunshield SPF 25 (Full Size)
Revlon Ultimate Suede Lipstick (Full Size)
Juicy Couture Viva La Juicy La Fleur EDT (Deluxe Sample)
NeutrogenaUltra Sheer Dry-Touch Sunblock SPF 50+ (Full Size)
P1,500.00 Sure Slim voucher
Let's see if this box is worth it:
You get two sunblocks in this box. One is for extreme sun exposure (Neutrogena) and the other is for daily use (ISkin New York). I was about to feel bad because I got two sunblocks and then I realized, they're an essential (even if I am not religious with my sunblock usage), they both cater to specific activities, and they come in full sizes.
Neutrogena's sunblock (P509.25) is my mom's favorite, and I recall that she used to ask her brother who's residing in the US to hoard it for her until it became available here. The one from ISkin New York (P2,900.00) is my ultimate favorite because it has a unique, primer- like texture and it's flesh- toned-even if this is the only full- sized item in the box, I'd be happy because it's very good! However, it will expire on July 2013. Sob. I can't even finish a 15ml tube of sunblock, but I don't want to see this thing go to waste so I'll try my best to use it everyday!
We have here Celeteque's Cleansing Oil, full- sized, 100ml bottle. This costs P599.00. Haven't tried this product so sorry, I can't say anything about it, but I think Celeteque has good products. I've used their Hydration line for a time and I liked it.
Davines is one good hair care brand. (Read my Nounou Pak review here) These are deluxe samples and they cost P390.00 each. The shampoo is at P1,020.00 for the 250ml and the conditioner, P1,085.00 at 250ml. These two can last you for a good 3 weeks if you alternate it with other hair products, and two weeks if you use it everyday.
You also get a full- sized Revlon Ultimate Suede lipstick (P575.00)-I got the shade Iconic and I learned that BDJ will give the subscribers a shade that will best suit their skin tones, based on the initial survey on the BDJ website. There's a 15ml Ahava Essential Day Moisturizer that's prolly worth P200.00+-full size for this product is P1,495.00. The miniature Juicy Couture perfume will last you for about 3 weeks if you use it everyday, and more than a month if you don't-its size is good enough for your makeup kit.
Last but not the least, there is a Sure Slim voucher worth P1,500.00. Lucky you if you're a patron of Sure Slim, and still lucky you if you're seeking help for your weight loss plans.
Total value of the box is around P7,000.00. Value- wise, you already got more than what you paid for.
Overall, I'm good with the first Elite Box: The brands featured are in the mid- range to premium categories which made the name ELITE quite fitting, it's got an equal amount of full- sized and deluxe samples but I hope the next time, there are no near- expiry products. I also hope that they could squeeze in some more samples in the box just because it's P1,950.00. If your concern is the price, BDJ gives you a preview of their upcoming Elite boxes and it gives you more time to decide whether you'll subscribe or not. (Fair enough)
