The BDJ Beauty Box Launch October 2012 at Slice High Street

With the sudden influx of beauty sampling sites in the Philippines, it is quite confusing on which to subscribe to. Do you feel that way too?  Well, here's good news! From the makers of the innovative Belle De Jour Power Planner...

 .... now comes The BDJ Beauty Box! 
The BDJ Box is a monthly beauty product discovery subscription service created to help women in their quest for the best beauty products. 

The October 2012 BDJ Box was formally launched to the press, beauty editors and bloggers last Oct 24 at Slice Restaurant, High Street. (BHS)

Slice Restaurant is the home of mouth-watering muffins, cupcakes, granolas, cakes, chocolate drinks, pasta, salads, and soup.

Guests were treated to a sumptuous meal as we eagerly await the unboxing event.

Cheese Platter. A selection of cheeses - Pecorino style goat cheese, Camembert style la maria and Mild Davao bleu cheese. Comes in red onion marmalade, dried-fruits, home made breadsticks, sprinkled with light granola light. 

Seafood Puttanesca. Shrimp and Salmon in lightly creamed puttanesca sauce tossed in Linguine pasta with pizza panini.

Raspberry and Moringa-Lemon refreshing drinks.

Choco Yema Cupcake, their bestseller!

Viviamo Inc. Pres Darlyn Ty,  Business Development Manager Em Sorrera along with the Beauty Ministers had created the BDJ Box to help Filipinas unbox her own beauty. 5-6 deluxe samples of premium brands are handpicked to be delivered to your doorstep for just Php 480 a month.

"Everyone wants to have a beauty editor as a friend. We handpicked the best beauty editors just as we handpick the best beauty products." shares BDJ Box Manging Editor Kat Dy, who also hosted the launch.

Beauty editors and bloggers all giddy with excitement as beauty ministers share their latest discoveries. To share a few items, they talked about dry shampoo, organic products and chemical peels. (Tee-hee) Arghhh! the joys of being a girl, always on the endless lookout for new, amazing beauty finds. 

It was impressive that BDJ Box is a personalized one. The beauty minsters will try their very best to personalize each box according to what suits each client. Really thoughtful, right? They have like 10 different sets to suit your skin/hair type and personal style. So, don't forget to take the beauty quiz when you sign-up at Describe your personal style, tell them more about your lifestyle, and the beauty products that you love, have and want to try.

I was one of the lucky few to get hold of this! Box is quite heavy. A good sign that its loaded and packed with beauty finds. Curious what's inside the October 2012 BDJ Box?

"This first ever BDJ Box has everything you need to renew, revitalize and reenergize - to take care of yourself. We know that looking your best starts with a healthy skin care routine, and with that a hair care system for intense smoothness and shine, not to mention, a fantastic fragrance that lasts - for French Girls are never without a signature scent!"

This month's beauty picks: 

How do i get my own BDJ box?

The press kit also included a set of I'm Beautiful Like Me stickers. It empowers and reminds us we are beautiful, and to be able to pass it on to others.

The fun never stops! To complement the BDJ Box, we were also given a free BDJ Power Planner! It is especially made for the Pinay fashionista achiever. The term Belle de Jour is French fashion lingo for "it" girl, the modern renaissance woman who dares to achieve her goals, lives her dreams, makes a difference in her community, while doing everything in great style.

The Power Planner includes time-management principles to help BDJ Girls manage their life better, articles and affirmations to inspire them to live life to the fullest and of course, coupons to remind them of work-life balance.

With the BDJ Box and Belle De Jour Planner, Viviamo Inc. truly empowers Filipinos to live out our ultimate lives always ahead in beauty and fashion.
