May 2016 BDJ Elite Box Unboxing: Summer Love

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. 

Revlon Expert Tweezer and Revlon Diamond Collection Nail File (17 g both) P150 each

Shape and file your nails to suit your lifestyle this summer season. The Revlon Diamond Collection Nail File has a cushioned board that provides extra comfort while you file, and makes it easy for you to hold. 

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.

  1. They should have asked your skin colour before they send these in. Well, maybe you can sell the skinlights to have a return of investment 😊

  2. This is why I rarely get boxes like this. You never really know what you will get.

    1. It's actually the element of surprise that convinced me to get the box. Some were nice, some weren't.

  3. Sorry for the ignorance, but they way I understood it, you will pay for the subscription but you're not exactly aware of what you will get.

    I suppose brands who will offer a similar gimmick might as well give subscribers a choice of what they're supposed to receive

    1. Yes. It's a way of surprising the subscribers. It's nice when the items you're not expecting are there but it isn't when it didn't meet your expectation. Haha

    1. I'm afraid to use it now. I'm still preggy and I'm afraid it might have a harmful ingredient. I can use it after a month :)

  8. Hmm. They should consider letting subscribers fill up their preferences so they know exactly what will include in the boxes.

  10. Wow! Good marketing strategy! Box that you don't know what's inside. A kind of surprising to the buyer's itself.

  11. Well this will satisfy me but maybe it depends on the customer also. I hope they can get more information from the subscriber to let them personalize the box more.

    1. Yes, they have members fill up their account and mentioned something about themselves from hair color to what skin type they have. I hope they consider that but I don't think they do.

  12. I love surprises, but then again they could've asked for you preferences too. But nonetheless, you did get surprised! Haha ;) I love the matte lipcolor and the nail polish. You can send them a feedback so that they can improve on their surprise box. (Just a thought!) <3

    1. Regular polishes and lipstick from the brand would cost a lot than the one on this box. Sometimes, they have promos too. You may want to watch out for that.

  14. I know that Revlon is quite a good quality brand, maybe that's why the price of the box was high. I like the nail polish, I think you can do a great combination with both of them on one nail.

    1. I have a lot of Revlon products and they may be a little pricey but it's one of those drugstore finds that always has promos and discounts.
