I got the chance to score the first BDJ Box of the year last May. My last box from the company was August of last year and I was so excited to finally subscribed again for their first surprise this year. However, my excitement turned into a bit of a disappointment because of the delay of the box plus some of it's contents.
During the first quarter of this year, I actually thought that they already stopped their subscriptions but they responded that they'll be MIA for a few months. Then they were back last May. Without thinking twice, I subscribed for their Elite box for P1480 right after they announced that they're opening subscription for the month. I didn't expected that the preparation for their comeback will have a little problems on some subscribers.
Their box is entitled Summer Love which is perfect for summer but a lot of netizens (according to my observation) reacted on Facebook and Instagram that the concept of the box wasn't fit for summer anymore because some boxes arrived during the last part of May. Since I'm from the province, mine arrived on the 3rd day of June.
The contents of the box were pure cosmetics and some tools. I am actually hoping for a skincare since my last box from them August of last year were full cosmetics as well because I got the same brand, it's 'The Look of Love' from Revlon as well.

A nail file and a tweezer. Not totally a fan of Revlon's tools though. Their nail file was very soft and would only last for a couple of uses unlike others that I've tried. I've had it before and I know. The tweezer was the least thing I would like to receive because I have a lot of different tweezers at home which is daintier than their version.

To be honest, I'm not really satisfied with the box. First, because of the tools that I really don't need that much, second is the Skinlights that's too fair for my skin tone plus I already have the perfect shade which I got from them long ago, and lastly the polishes that I already have and I'm not really a fan of the colors I got. Overall, I only have 3 items left on the box that I'm looking forward to use soon. I hope those remaining won't disappoint me.
Is it worth the box? For me it's not. I had wonderful experiences from their previous boxes which gives triple to 4 times the amount of the box and the regular ones that cost for only P480 is much worthy than this. I hope they can reanalyze the products on their elite boxes. Still looking forward from their future boxes soon! I hope they can recover themselves in the coming months.
