When BDJ announced that they will be having another Elite box this holiday, I decided not to purchase it anymore even if I already knew (based on their photo) that the products are makeup products from Celeteque. I have spent so much especially in the last 3 months so I didn’t really want to shell out another Php1480 for a beauty box.
When BDJ made another announcement and said that they will be adding more products in the box (a total of 15 items instead of 7), there was a part of me that felt like I should avail the subscription already but I still decided to not go for it because I wasn’t sure if the additional items are going to be in full sizes (just like the original 7 items) or not.
When BDJ made yet another announcement on Facebook and said that the total value of the box is going to be 6x more than Php1480, that was when I made the decision to subscribe. Fortunately, I was able to make a purchase before it got sold out. Yey!
Words cannot express how delighted I am to receive this Celeteque BDJ Box Elite. The timing is really perfect since Saladbox has just delivered the worst beauty box this holiday season. The idea that I can now focus more on the beauty that is this box and think less about the nightmare behind the Saladbox – Holiday box is really uplifting. And to top it all off, with BDJ, we didn’t have to wait for 1 month and a half to get our boxes unlike with Saladbox. Thank you BDJ! You made me concentrate more on the happiness. 🙂
Let’s check each one:
“Celeteque DermoCosmetics CC Microhydrating Powder features an autogrinding technology that gives you an ultra-fine and hydrating powder that quickly blends and evens out skin complexion. It controls oil and shine while keeping skin radiant and well-moisturized. It also has SPF 30 to provide double sunscreen protection.”
Oh my! This is a unique product that I have not encountered before. I like that the powder isn’t too exposed and that in order to get the right amount of powder, you would have to use the grinder by rotating it clockwise. I look forward to using this to set my foundation. I do hope that it will really help control the oil on my skin.
“Celeteque DermoCosmetics 2-in-1 Eyebag Miracle Kit is a combination of an Eye Balm that reduces puffiness under the eyes and an Eye Foundation that covers and lightens eye bags.”
I am truly excited with this eye bag miracle kit because I do have major puffiness under the eyes especially when I don’t get enough sleep (which is always) so I cannot wait to use this duo to see if it would really reduce puffiness and conceal the eye bag area. I also hope that this Eye Foundation won’t end up looking “cakey” once applied. Crossing my fingers now. 🙂
“Celeteque DermoCosmetics 24-Hour Photoready Matte Primer has a silky and weightless formula that glides onto skin creating a smooth, matte and flawless look. It minimizes the appearance of pores and fine lines and reduces shine for a long lasting makeup wear.”
Love love love that I got this matte primer from Celeteque. My skin tends to get oily over time so I always use a primer to help keep the oil at bay.
“Celeteque DermoCosmetics Eyebrow Defining Kit is a 2-in-1 formulation of a Tinted Wax and a color complementing Eyebrow Powder for well-defined brows.”
When it comes to my eyebrows, I generally prefer using eyebrow pencils because I find it easier to use. Having said that, I’m still glad that I got these kits because it would still be a perfect back-up for when I run out of eyebrow pencils. I do like the “medium brown” kit more as it matches the current color of my hair.
“Celeteque DermoCosmetics Long-Wear Eyeshadow Palette is an easy-to-blend combination of naturally-toned Eyeshadows and a lightweight Primer that keeps eyeshadow color looking fresh and vivid all day.”
Eye makeup is my favorite thing in the cosmetics world and so I was really happy that I got 3 different palettes from Celeteque. Truth be told, I already have a lot of eyeshadow palettes in my collection but it doesn’t hurt to get more of it. Plus, I do like that this palette also includes an eye primer because eyeshadows do last longer when applied after a primer. Of all the eyeshadow palettes that I have, this is the only one that comes with an eye primer so I’m impressed with it.
I do find that the color appears more vivid when applied with a brush than with fingers. I do, however, suggest that you use a different brush to apply this because the applicator included in the palette isn’t that good as it makes the eyeshadow appear a bit streaky.
“Celeteque DermoCosmetics Moisturizing Lip Lacquer is a lightweight, non-greasy and smooth gel-based lip moisturizer that keeps lips soft, hydrated and supple all day.”
I tried the “soft pink” shade last Friday and I liked it. Initially, I thought that it would make my lips look greasy but it didn’t. My lips really did look supple for hours.
“Celeteque DermoCosmetics Moisturizing Lip and Cheek Duo is an oil-free and streak-free mousse with powerful antioxidants to promote lip and cheek moisturization.”
I love that both the lip lacquer and the lip & cheek duo come in small tubes because I always worry about expiry dates especially when it comes to lip products since it’s my least favorite thing to use.
“Celeteque DermoScience Advanced Anti-Aging Cleansing Oil gently and effectively removes deep-seated dirt and impurities while maintaining the skin’s natural level of moisture. It rinses off easily and instantly leaves the skin velvety soft without the greasy after-feel. This specially forumalated cleansing oil thoroughly cleanses and moisturizes skin. It is clinically proven to significantly reduce fine lines and improve skin smoothness and moisturization with continued use.”
I used this cleansing oil awhile ago and it worked great. I was able to remove the makeup I had on my face without any problem. The only downside here is that I now prefer to use Micellar water over cleansing oil because with Micellar water, even if I don’t wash my face afterwards, my face would still look and feel fresh.
“The Hydrolyzed Liquids and Natural Moisturizing Factor (NMF) contained in every water droplet help restore moisture to the skin, improving its elasticity and softness. It can be used as a moisturizer, skin refresher and as a makeup setter”
I paid only Php1480 for this Elite box but I got so much more from it. The total value of the box is at Php9539 so there’s no doubt that it’s super worth it. There is really nothing more that I can ask for. This is the perfect present that I bought for myself and I am so thankful that I didn’t miss out on this one. I hope that BDJ would continue to deliver boxes that are as amazing as this. 🙂
