My gosh! I have absolutely been really busy! And my resolution to blog more regularly – not working. Haha. Oh well. Who cares right?
But then I just really wanted to share this because this is the first BDJ Box of the year and I was able to get one. You see? The thing about me, I don’t subscribe on a monthly basis because first of all, I don’t really blog that often anymore and secondly, I really don’t get to finish everything so I might end up having a lot of beauty products in my bathroom and it’ll be such a waste.
But just to share with you, I was actually pretty pleased with this box.
See how cute the packaging is?
And you would see that there’s the usual paper that comes along with it.
Yes, mantra for this year. Well, actually I was thinking about it and yes, I think this year, I have to build a lot of self confidence. I think for the past year, I’ve lost it somehow, I don’t know why. I guess because my face is really breaking out now. Soo sad. I’ve gained weight. BOOHOO. But this year, I promise to do everything to boost my self confidence again so that I’ll be happy and comfortable with myself.
Cool thing about this box is that it contains this magazine thingy wherein you can read more about the Kawaii products and other products under those brands. I have a confession to make, I’m soo not versed with these products. Hihi. I think I’m still more westernized.
- Bifesta Cleansing lotion, 300ml
This breakthrough makeup remover gently removes makeup and effectively cleanses skin. This is Japan’s first ever water based makeup remover that absorbs impurities, leaving skin feeling fresh and moisturized without the oily feeling.
My take: Yes, this actually removes makeup completely. However I’ve noticed that you have to use a lot of the product and a lot of the cotton and since it’s watery, it really is kind of messy. Although what I like about this is that it really DOES NOT sting.
- Lucido-L Styling Milk, 75ml
This day time hair supplement styles and treats your hair at the same time! Powered by Hyaluronic Acid, it caots hair strands for soft and tangle-free hair, with a long-lasting, sweet and fruity-floral scent. It comes in 4 variants to suit whatever style you like.
My take: Love this. I used it after I shampoo my hair when I kind of have dried it already and just before drying my hair with a blower.
- Lucido Treatment Oil, 50ml
Repairs dry and damage hair during sleep for softer and smoother hair upon waking up! It contains ingredients similar to what is found in your cuticles and cortex cells which help retain water by filling up the gaps caused by damage to maintain moisture for more manageable and healthier hair.
My take: It’s just like any other hair oil. Same as the Lucido-L Styling Milk, I use it after I kind of dried my hair and before drying my hair with a blower. I’m not sure if I’m supposed to do that but that works for me. With me, I never not dry my hair because I get a headache if I sleep with my hair wet.
- Pixy Powder Foundation TWC FIT, 12.2g
This powder formula blends perfectly for a smooth and long lasting base. Use it wet for more coverage, or dry for a natural look. It contains two way whitening squalene oil to prevent dry skin, and SPF15 to protect your skin from sun damage.
My Take: Pleasantly surprised about this. I have been looking for a compact foundation which isn’t expensive but does the great coverage and this is probably it. Also, if you notice, the color is a bit dark for me but it blends perfectly well. So two thumbs up!
- Pixy Powder Foundation Coverlast, 10g
This long lasting powder foundation from Pixy has Microsphere Powder that covers blemishes for natural makeup look. It also contains oil and shine to keep looking fresh all throughout the day.
My Take: If the other product is good. This is better! I dunno why but then it really has great coverage and that’s the number one thing for me.
This pretty blush will help you pull off that natural, cute flush on your cheeks, giving you innocent glow whenever you smile. It also comes with a built-in mirror for easy touch ups! Try different shades of brown, pink and purple for your desired look.
My Take: If you notice, I got the brown one. I was a bit scary about it at first but when I put it on, it looks uber natural so this was A-OK for me!
Its Micro-pearl formula created soft texture that makes it easy to apply and blend on your lids. Its two-color combination makes it easy to use. Combine it with other shades to create more eye makeup looks!
My Take: Love this color because it’s perfect for every day. I really love the natural look right now.
- Sunkiller Perfect Water Essence, 27ml
This water-based Japanese sunscreen gel feels water-light and delivers superior UVA protection and can double as your makeup base. It applies like water and is sebum proof, leaving skin feeling fresh, clean and smooth.
My Take: It’s really difficult to look for a sunscreen that you would like and this is probably one of them. It dries clear and isn’t heavy at all. So, will definitely buy this product again.
So that’s it for now. I’m really sleepy now. BOO. Goodnight folks and I’m soo excited for my next BDJ Box!
