I have never been THIS excited unboxing a subscription box in my whole blogging existence, REALLY! After I received the email from BDJBox that they will be releasing a Luxe box containing Shu Uemura products, I gasped and did not think twice of reserving mine. The box is Php 15,000 worth of products for only Php 4,280. It is kind of steep, but since I have not tried anything from their brand, I feel like it is a good price to start indulging myself with their products. The box is full of beauty and skin care products. The best part is that it includes four full-sized products, and lots of deluxe products that are generous in size. Continue reading to know more about the contents of the box.
shu uemura Fresh Pore Clarifying Gentle Cleansing Oil (full-size, Php 4,095, 450ml) – This cleansing oil effectively removes makeup and impurities while maintaining skin’s needed moisture level, perfect for combination to oily skin types. It is formulated with Sakura Complex to minimize pores by eliminating excess sebum, visibly smoothening the skin’s surface.
This is the highlight of the box, and the best item for me. This already costs almost the price of the whole box. I am so excited to try this cleansing oil because I go through them like crazy. Before I clean my face, I make sure to wipe off my makeup with a cleansing oil to make sure that I am removing all my gunk. I will most likely post a review of this soon!
From Left to Right:

Of the bunch, I already tried the Shu Uemura Tsuya Skin UV Under base Youthful Radiance Mousse in Peach. It dispenses a humongous amount of product so I should be careful when I use it next time to not waste it. At first, It felt sticky and heavy, and it seems to be a lighter shade for my skin, but after a minute or less, it adjusted to my color, as if it was absorbed, and my skin felt so hydrated. I wore it all throughout the day, and I did not experience being oily surprisingly.
I am going to save the other products for traveling, or maybe if I ran out of the products that I am currently using.

Provides long-lasting moisture while focusing on reversing the signs of aging. Suitable for normal to combination skin.
I am already loving every skin care product I get from my subscription boxes. I am more self-conscious now about my skin because I am no longer getting any younger and next year, I will be in my 30s (yikes!), so I am sure that wrinkles and fine lines are going to be my enemies. Hehe. So these deluxe samples are perfect for travelling or at least for trial before I buy the full-sizes.

Best used for highlighting and face contouring. It comes with a velvet-textured puff designed specifically for sheer powder application.
MAKEUP!!! Nothing excites me more than these, of course! The foundation shade is a bit darker on me, though, but I already wore it once, and I like it. I got darker after I went to Ilocos, so it still works. It evened out my skin tone, cancelled redness around my nose, and overall, gave a flawless finish. It did not control my oily T-zone, but in fairness to it, no foundation does that to me. I am ok with blotting from time to time, so I don’t really mind.
The two glosses are awesome! It doesn’t have a strong scent, it is not that sticky, and it did not taste bad. It also applies very smoothly. The gold lip gloss can be worn alone, but I would like to use it over a lipstick. The peachy pink shade is okay for everyday wear.
I haven’t tested the powder yet on my face but, it is very finely milled and perfect for setting the face base. It does not have any color so it won’t change the color of the base.
Last but not the least, different samples of Serums and Cleansing oil!
Along with all these Shu Uemura goodies are these journals and sticky notes. Each costs about 200+ (if I recall correctly)! Thank you BDJ Box for this amazing Luxe box! I wonder what the next box will be. I can’t wait!
