I’m thankful and glad the Belle de Jour team sent an invite my way for a big peek at their own range of beauty sample boxes. Let’s have a closer look, shall we?
1.) L’oreal Paris Total Repair 5, Daily Repairing Treatment 50ml, 2.) Garnier Skin Naturals Pure Active Multi-action scrub 50ml, 3.) L’oreal Revitalift Night Repair Essence 5ml, 4.) L’oreal Lucent Magique Skin Illuminating BB Cream SPF20 5ml, 5.) Calvin Klein Eternity Aqua 1.2ml sample vial, 6.) SYOSS (by Schwarzkopf) Anti-Dandruff Shampoo & Conditioner (both 100ml), 7.) Yves Rocher Hydra Vegetal Hydrating Toner 50ml, 8.) BONUS: Garnier Skin Naturals LightSPF17 facial cream sachets. CHECK OUT THE WEBSITE to see first few brands involved at BDJbox.com
I’m actually genuinely delighted at how jam-packed my BDJ blogger sample box is and they’ve managed to even fit in 2 or more full-sized products in there! I’m particularly curious about that tiny sample of BB Cream. The BDJ Box is brought to us beauty lovers by the same editorial team that brought us the Belle de Jour planner which was spearheaded by Kat Dy. Belle de Jour is a well-thought-out planner for women that includes tips on beauty and self confidence plus shop and dine coupons to help and encourage you to live more fully throughout the year.
We also have Barbi Chan the makeup artist and our very own blogger friend Tara on board as part of the beauty ministry team for the BDJ Box subscription service. Tara is the cheerful face behind the blog Chronicles of Vanity(dot)com.

They’ve arrived! Beauty sample box subscriptions have arrived on Philippine shores and the first to arrive at my blog’s doorstep is the 4-piece offering of SaladBox. I actually received mine about 4-5 days ago, was just really busy over the weekend.
1.) Hot Shop Pour Femme – Happy/FULL SIZE- “Happy is a fragrance of joy, the essence of sunny, happy mornings.”
2.) NaturaCosmetics Gorgeous Argan Lip & Cheek Tint- “This dual-purpose wax-based stick gives an instant, lasting burst of color to your cheeks and lips. Perfect for girls on the go.”
3.) Camaru Naturals Bamboo Charcoal Clarifying Soap/FULL SIZE – “Known to effectively clear out skin impurities, this popular VEGAN bamboo charcoal soap also whitens and moisturizes skin.”
4.) BC Fragrance Pillow Mist in Relaxing Mint - “Infuse your pillow with this relaxing mint scent and feel refreshed as you head off to dreamland.”
Now many of you might be expecting these new local subscription boxes to hold lots of famous brands, they may not have a lot at first but they will eventually and I’m glad that a lot of them, in spite of the lack of popular demand, are partnering with lesser-known local and regional (Asia) brands that are bringing forward lots of high quality products many of which are organic or vegan. Once I’ve tried all these I’ll do a stand-alone review on the product here that impresses me the most.
“For PhP500.00 per month, a subscriber will receive a box filled with four or more beauty and lifestyle product samples. The SaladBox team greatly values the money their subscribers spend so these products will have a value of more than PhP700.00. SaladBox is currently in partnership with a lot of beauty and lifestyle brands, both local and international, up-and-coming and timeless classics.”
To subscribe go to the SaladBox Website here. Did you know that if you subscribe for a Saladbox and review any of the products you receive and submit your links/reviews to SaladBox you can earn SaladLeaves which are coupons you can use on the SaladBox site? Right now what’s made the strongest first impression on me from this lot that’s arrived is the look of that Bamboo Charcoal Clarifying soap. Bathtime will tell.
