I’ve been blogging about the BDJ Boxes on and off here on the blog. It’s not like I don’t want what I am getting, but I know that they are very popular now so everyone has it. Am I right? I also don’t know if readers still enjoy reading unboxing posts anymore. Do you?
Anyway, today, let me share what I got inside the Exclusive BDJ Box Elite for October 2015 featuring Celeteque DermoCosmetics new products because this box deserves a spot on this blog! *wink* I already have these items before because I attended their launch few weeks ago. I have used most of them and have reviewed about the Céleteque DermoCosmetics Matte Lip Stick in Peach already! I promise to keep the reviews coming for the other items soon!
Let’s now look at the items inside!
The Céleteque DermoCosmetics 24-hour Photoready Foundation (P795.00) provides a smooth airbrush finish for 24 hours while concealing dark spots for all skin types. It has micro pigments and silicone elastomers that hide blemishes and dark circles. It also has Phytocelltec, a component harnessed from cutting-edge plant cell culture technology that has extensive anti-aging properties, making skin more supple and radiant every day. Just like the Dual CC Matte Powder, the 24-hour Photoready Foundation is also infused with Collagen Peptide, which reduces wrinkles and improves skin elasticity through regular use: Studies have shown that wrinkles were significantly reduced up to 41.31% through the fourth week of product usage. Best of all, it has color-correcting pigments and SPF 30 that shield the skin from harmful UV rays.
Mini Review: I’ve used this for a straight week and I am hooked! It doesn’t make the face too matte, and not too dewy. It makes the face look smooth, even and healthy. My oils are still seeping through the foundation after a few hours but when I blot, the foundation stays. It really lasts for a long time on me.
The Céleteque DermoCosmetics Dark Spot Concealer Stick (P595.00) offers superior coverage for skin imperfections while protecting the skin from free radicals. It has glycolic acid that lightens uneven dark spots, ranging from blemishes, sun spots, and age spots. It has Cytobiol Lumin-eye, which efficiently reduces puffy eye bags within 15 days! The Dark Spot Concealer Stick also has moisturizing properties, thanks to Tocopheryl Acetate, which promotes skin hydration and improves overall skin texture.
Mini Review: This product needs to be warmed up first before using under the eyes because it has a thick formula. Once applied and blended, it stays the whole day without creasing provided that it is set properly with powder. I usually use the Ben Nye Luxury Powder to set my makeup.
The Céleteque DermoCosmetics Dual CC Matte Powder (P749.00) keeps oily skin at bay with its 12-hour matte finish. Clinical studies have shown a significant decrease in skin oiliness from the first and second week of product usage, and it has also been proven to reduce fine lines to up to 42.87% when used for four weeks. It also contains Glutathione, Arbutin, and Mulberry, all of which inhibit melanin production and lighten skin color with regular use. The Dual CC Matte Powder is also packed with collagen peptide, which maintains skin firmness and improves elasticity through increased collagen formation, as well as Tocopheryl Acetate, which promotes skin hydration. This multi-tasking product is also packed with color-correcting pigments that even out skin tone, as well as SPF 30 to protect the skin from the sun’s harsh UVA rays, considered one of the primary culprits of aging.
Mini Review: This powder has a very fine, smooth texture that easily blends into the skin with a matte finish! I will keep you posted about the effectiveness in keeping the oils at bay. This a very promising product because of its claims!
The multi-tasking Céleteque DermoCosmetics Cheek Color Stick (P645.00) is a must-have in every kikay kit, as it easily highlights, brightens, illuminates, conditions, and adds color to the cheeks, lips, and even eyes. It keeps the skin hydrated, thanks to the moisturizing properties of vitamin E and sweet almond oil. Got dry skin? The Cheek Color Stick also has Bisabolol, an essential oil from the German Chamomile plant, which reduces flakiness brought about by dry skin. It also reduces fine lines to up to 49.89% upon the fourth week of usage.
Mini Review: This product is best applied before powder otherwise it will cake on the skin. This cheek blush stays on for hours especially if it is set with a powder, or over a good base. The peach shade flatters my medium skin tone. It has a matte finish and best applied with fingers!
Highlight the cheeks with the Céleteque DermoCosmetics Blush and Face Contour Kit (P845.00), which addresses all contouring needs while nourishing the skin. The 3-in-1 kit is composed of easy to blend blush powder, cheek luminizer, and contour blush that are packed with mineral gems (diamond, tourmaline, and sapphire) and mica that exfoliate the skin and make it glow. This key makeup kit product is slated to be a favorite between both makeup newbies and makeup pros as the palette can create subtle angles and shadows that naturally shape the face. It’ll truly help get you 2X beautiful with the proper highlighting and lowlighting—just like how our fave celebrities do it! This Blush and Face Contour Kit also has castor oil that acts as an anti-aging antioxidant, as well as vitamins A, E, F, H, and B, which keep the skin healthy and protect it from irritation.
Mini Review: This is my favorite product overall. The pigment is just right so it is easy to blend and can be built up to my desired intensity. It has a noticeable scent, but still pleasant. The highlighter is my favorite because it applies smoothly and it melts into the skin. It looks very natural! You can apply as much, but it will still look like skin, but glowy! The contour shade is also the perfect shade because it does not look orange on my skin. The pink blush makes me look fresh and youthful.
Make your lashes the talk of the town with the Céleteque DermoCosmetics 24-hour Volumizer Mascara (P645.00). Its revolutionary formula promises fuller lashes for 24 hours. It has Acrylates Copolymer, which holds lashes longer while preventing annoying clumps and smudges. It’s also powered with Aloe Barbadensis Leaf juice, which not only promotes the skin’s water retention but also protects the eyes from bacteria. The 24-hour Volumizer Mascara also comes with an innovative retractable brush that reaches even the smallest lashes, giving an even and fuller look with a smooth finish.
Mini Review: This mascara is long-wearing and it stays the whole day without smudging. I really like the formula and the retractable wand. You may change the wand depending on what you desire, volume or length!
The long-wearing Céleteque DermoCosmetics Matte Lip Stick (P595.00) provides easy coverage and a pop of color while providing hydration for the lips. It glides easily on the lips and does not leave a waxy finish. Just like the Cheek Color Stick, the Matte Lip Stick is packed with Vitamin E and Bisabolol that nourish the lips and reduce suppleness while getting rid of flaky skin.
Mini Review: This is my least favorite of all. Unfortunately, it applies patchy and the formula is too dry for me. I need to exfoliate my lips otherwise, this will just emphasize dry, flaky lips. Works best with lip gloss or balm on top.
Those are all that are inside my box. BDJ Box said that the Eyebrow Nourishing Serum and Hydrolyzed Moisturizing Mist are coming soon because there was a delay from their warehouse.
Overall, this box is totally worth the price! I am so happy that Celeteque DermoCosmetics came up with all these great products that are suited for every Filipino. The prices are up there but remember that these makeup items also come with skin care!
This box is PLUMPCHEEKS APPROVED!
