UNBOXING | November 2014 BDJ Box (Sweet Shoppe) Benefit Exclusive

I have thought so many times if I should still share this with you. This is pretty late and I know you have seen other beauty bloggers post about this. But I realized that, though we have similar items, our thoughts will differ from one another so I might as well share with you what I think about this box and its contents.



The theme for Novermber 2014's BDJ Box is Sweet Shoppe and is a Benefit Exclusive box. This is my third Benefit box and to be honest, I still have mixed feelings about it.



Of course, you gotta love their stickers. It gives you a good quote that you can live by. Sad to say though, the box' size went back to its original size. So I guess it is bye bye for me and the box almost as big as a shoe box.

Watch me as I unbox this for you. See video below or just read the blog post.



Upon opening, you will see that the box is not full. Given a box filled with Benefit products, I did expect it to be like this. But I did not expect to see repeat items. I will share with you the contents starting from my more favorite down to the least.

Bathina Scented Body Mist | Php 1800 for 75ml Full-sized product
[/caption]

It has a blend of golden peaches, Sicilian lemon, white blossoms and velvet plum that leaves you feeling irresistibly sexy with every spritz.  It’s also alcohol-free, so you can mist it on your hair and on any part of your body anytime you feel like it!

I was stunned with the packaging! This is actually my favorite out of all the stuff inside the box. The scent is really good (although I am not good in describing scents). The first try, I was not impressed with the lasting power. I will give this a second chance and see if it will last longer this time. Nevertheless, the packaging closed the deal!

Get smoother than smooth skin with this pore minimizer This silky and lightweight balm is formulated with vitamin E to help protect your skin, while minimizing your pores and appearance of fine lines.


If you have watched my vlogs,you would know that I love this product! It really works like magic on to my face and this is actually the third time, if I remember it right, that I received a sample of this. I am not complaining because it is really a good product but trying other products is also fine with me.

High Beam Complexion Enhancer | Php 1700 for 12.5 full-sized product

Want a highlighter that doesn't over shimmer your face? High Beam gives a subtle sheen to your face so you can get that fresh and dewy look. Just dot it in the parts of your face that's usually touched by the sun and blend for a luminous glow.


I have tried the one from MeMeMe which is actually a dupe according to other bloggers. I liked that product but I have also wanted to try this one for the longest time and now I have a sample. I am so excited to try this one.

[/caption]

With its mango butter and sodium hyaluronate formula, you can get healthy, poppy-pink tinted lips. Posiebalm helps hydrate and conditions while giving your lips a sweet pinkish glow.


I saw a photo of this before in one of the Benefit exclusive BDJ box and I know right then and there that I wanted to try this one. The sample is so cute that I don't even want to use it. But then again, I wanted to try it so I guess I am just going to keep the packaging even after finishing the sample.

They're Real! Push-Up Liner | Php 1300 for 1.4g Full-sized product (sample - 0.10g)
[/caption]

This lash-hugging pen gel liner uses a soft AccuFlex tip that gives you smooth, non-budge application. It's waterproof, matte, black gel eyeliner that can last for as long as 24 hours on your lids!


I want to try this because it is something new to me but after seeing negative comments, I am having second thoughts. But I will still give it a shot!

A true 2-in-1 coverage tat controls oil and balances moisture while giving a lightweight finish to the skin. It perfectly conceals imperfections as it adjusts to your skin tone, while it soothes and protects your skin from free radicals.


I have received this before and I have not used it yet. Swatched it a couple of times but never used it. Maybe it is about time I give this a try and see if it is any good.

They're Real! Mascara | Php 1300 for 8.5 full-sized product
[/caption]

Believe the impossible! They're Real! Mascara provides jet-black lash coverage that makes your lashes gorgeously long and think without the clumping, giving you gorgeous eyes all day long.


Another repeat item. I was told that this is really good. I am not excited to see this though because I still have an unused one.

It's Potent! Eye Cream and Instant Comeback Age-Defying Booster Serum samples
[/caption]

I am not a fan of sachet samples. I just don't think they can deliver good results in an instant. Well, at least I can see the consistency and know the scent before even buying the full-sized one.

Something I don't think I can use. I am just fond of going out so I don't think I will be able to use this.


Overall, I still think that the products here are very usable but I am not completely happy with regards to seeing repeat items. I love those products but I wish I could try other product from Benefit. I cannot compute the total since all items are in sample size. Nevertheless, this is still a good box but not their best. If ever an exclusive brand will be repeated again, I hope they' feature different items or a full-sized product perhaps.
