Unboxing: Kiss Dry Goodbye! BDJ Box (May 2015)

Has it really been half a year since I last did this? *snicker* Unboxing subbies has always excited me because really, life is more fun with surprises! Last month's BDJ Box offering is something I'd usually shy from since I don't really have dry skin but mannnnnn this lakas maka-forever summer has been burning my hair and skin like silly! Add the crazy travel schedule I'm doing pa et viola! Recipe for dry skin disaster. :(

I like this box's contents because of the value and the variety. Some players I've tried, some are absolutely new to me. Do you see YAYs on your books below?

Aloe Derma Pure Aloe Vera Gel, 45g Php 280 (full size)
Aloe Derma Pure Aloe Vera Gel is a multi functional skincare product composed of 99.7% organic Aloe Vera extract, certified by ECOCERT France. This protects your skin from dryness & irritation, and effectively repairs damaged skin as proven in clinical trials. It is recommended for soothing sunburns perfect if you have just gone on a summer trip. It’s also great for daily use, as it’s very light on the skin, perfect for our humid weather.

Yes, you've already heard about this product in the blog last year. Question is -- why is this not yet available in most groceries and department stores? It's one of the best discoveries I've had in a while because it works like a charm on sunburns and insect bites, applies like gel, and sets like nothing. Very glad to receive a full tube this time.

Cetaphil Daily Advance Moisturizing Lotion, 85g Php 675 (2 sample tubes)
Cetaphil Daily Advance Lotion is designed for all-over body use- from your head to your toes. It is fast acting, long lasting and great on even the toughest, extra-dry skin. It instantly replenishes, hydrates and protects dry, sensitive skin, leaving it soft and smooth. Formulated with a unique combination of five key moisturizing ingredients, this luxurious lotion is perfect for your daily use. Clinically proven to hydrate and moisturize for a full day with a non-greasy and fragrance free formula you’ll surely love.

Colgate Optic White Plus Shine, 100g x 2 Php 115 each (full size)
Shine bright with this new innovation from Colgate that whitens and shines teeth after just one week. It contains whitening accelerators that safely exfoliate stains to whiten teeth. It also contains gentle micro-crystal particles that help polish teeth and make it shinier. This is your perfect companion in creating brighter and meaningful smiles. Let the world know you can shine your brightest with Colgate Optic White Plus Shine.

Some box snobs were feeling meh about this but I'm elated to see not just one but two tubes! Colgate has always been my preferred toothpaste (this and Crest White forever!) and for someone wearing braces, I usually finish a 100g tube in a week. :) This new variant promises whitening and shine in one week. I wish I can vouch for it but I couldn't quite see the difference just yet because of my brackets. LOL

Dermal Masks, Php 70 per sheet (3 full sized sheets)
Restore your tired, dull skin and welcome its healthy glow with this moisturizing and revitalizing collagen facial mask. It contains nutritional active ingredients that nourishes your skin and brings back its natural radiance. Nothing beats healthy looking skin, so add Dermal Masks to your beauty routine and you will surely see the difference. Choose from 36 different variants to address your various skin concerns and you’ll surely find the one that suits you.

AHLAVETTTTT!!! These masks are the bomb! I've hoarded Syn-Ake in Singapore and Hong Kong (in boxes, mind you haha) and I'm so glad to see it in my samples. I think Dermal Masks are absolutely underrated. For masks under Php 150, I like Dermal and though not available locally, My Beauty Diary.

FS Powder Blush, 6.2g Php 350 (full size)
This FS Powder Blush is a Preview Magazine Award Winner, and rightly so! It blends smoothly and easily for a streak-free, natural finish look that gives you perfectly flushed cheeks. It contains Vitamin E for an extra boost of hydration perfect for our humid weather. It comes in a variety of shades and finishes to fit your every mood. It’s also very handy and convenient, as it comes with a mini-brush that you can use for a quick touchups throughout the day.

I read somewhere that contouring is out and highlighting is soooo in. I think this makes a perfect highlighter than a blush for morena chicas like myself. :)
