Benefit Exclusive: Sweet Shoppe November BDJ Box Unboxing
Can you believe this is technically considered my first Christmas present of the year? My BDJ Box came early this month and when I got it I was in for a surprise. It was another Benefit Exclusive box and I was fortunate to get the June box as that’s when my subscription started but not the March one. So I got two out of 3 Benefit boxes this year. They are treating us with a little bit of Christmas spirit in November and I don’t really mind celebrating a little early because I mean come on it’s Christmas!
The box is so pretty with it’s Christmas themed box sleeve. It’s regular size this month after receiving a few elite box sizes but it has Benefit samples in it so I understand having a huge box with this would just be absurd. I also love the themes they come up with and this one was just so cute and festive and perfect for this time of year.The overall theme is just ways to make you look good this holiday season featuring selected benefit products. I can’t wait to try and use them and see what I come up with.
And here is the card. Again as pretty as ever with it matching the outer sleeve. By now you may know what the card contains but I’ll recap it for first time readers.There is the
introduction, product description inside and promos on the back to enter
cool prizes and this month’s sounds fun so I hope to take part in it.
This months sticker reads, “Love the Way You Look. Look the Way You Love.” It really is a great quote and I really take inspiration from them which has become one of my things I look forward to as well when I open up the box every month.
Now let’s see what Benefit samples await inside this box!
So many pretty stuff! I just love Benefit’s packaging no matter if it is full size or sample size like what’s inside this box. It is such a treat and I see some great tings that look amazing and things I got previously and are new. I know Benefit is expensive and in my country it is even more pricey than the original price of the US so getting some samples to see if I like them then is great for me.
Big Easy & Total Moisture Facial Cream
Big Easy Complexion Perfector in 05 Beige
Sample Size // 3ml
Price // 179php
Full Size // 35ml | Price // 2,000php
A true 2-in-1 coverage that controls oil and balances moisture while giving lightweight finish to the skin. It perfectly conceals imperfections as it adjusts to your skin tone, while it soothes and protects your skin from free radicals.
The Big Easy sample came in my June box and so I already had a sample but this time I got another shade. I still haven’t tried this yet but I will soon but at least I have two shades to choose from just in case one doesn’t match my color. I heard a lot about this being a great BB cream but I just hadn’t gotten round to test it out.
Total Moisture Facial Cream
Sample Size // 8.9g / 0.3oz
Price // 258php
Full Size // 48.2g | Price // 2,300php
Getting tired of your dry skin? Benefit’s Total Moisture Facial Cream has a tri-radiance complex formula that hydrates, and improves and develops your skin’s moisture to make your face radiantly beautiful.
This couldn’t have come to me at a better time. Lately I realized maybe because of the weather changing or something but I have dry patches on my face which I never really get other than my lips. I have oily combination skin but I guess trying different products or like I say the changing of weather has given me this problem and I am glad to use this moisturizer. It says it is for normal to dry skin but it actually works for me and think that is amazing. I love the smell and it worked for me and yes I tried it right away as I needed it. I hardly do that but it also came in handy for makeup class. Plus the packaging is amazing and is like a baby version of the full size. It’s a glass bottle making it so adorable and great for traveling and throwing it your wash bag. I’m totally going to pick up a full size of this when I run out.
Lollitint & Posiebalm
Lollitint Lip & Cheek Stain
Sample Size // 2.5ml
Price // 340php
Full Size // 12.5ml | Price // 1,700php
You can never go wrong with this sweet candy-orchid tint! With its smudge-proof and smooch proof formula, you can now get that sweet flirty flush for your lips and cheeks all day long.
I got this previously as well before and I liked it and didn’t use it to much but I do have a spare now. It is so cute and the color is so pretty. I might be using this mostly on my lips as I don’t wear blush all that much but I do love this teeny tube of Lollitint.
Posiebalm Hydrating Lip Balm
Sample Size // 0.5g
Price // 167php
Full Size // 3g | Price // 1,000php
its mango butter and sodium hyaluronate formula, you can get healthy,
poppy-pink tinted lips. Posiebalm helps hydrate and conditions while
giving your lips a sweet pinkish glow.
This is again so cute and has one of the cutest packaging out of this whole box. I love the rose gold but pink packaging and the print on it. I love know this is pretty new and I really wanted to try it and this shade was the one I would have picked for myself. I love pink lip colors so this tinted lip balm really does the trick. It is similar to the Fake Up Concealer sample I got as well before. It seems like though it only has a few uses because it is so small but if I fall in love I’ll get a full sized one.
They’re Real! Trio Set
They’re Real! Push-up Liner
Sample Size // 0.10g
Price // 93php
Full Size // 1.4g | Price // 1,300php
This lash-hugging pen gel liner uses a soft AccuFlex tip that gives you smooth, non-budge application. It’s a waterproof, matte, black gel eyeliner that can last for long 24 hours on your lids!
The latest most talked about Benefit product is now in my grasp with this cute little tiny sample. I really want to try this and it looks so good and since I am terrible at eyeliner and winged liner for one I hope this work. I’m glad getting a mini one so I can maybe practice and see how it works first before splurging and getting this.
They’re Real! Mascara
Sample Size // 3g
Price // 458php
Full Size // 8.5g | Price // 1,300php
Believe the impossible! They’re Real! Mascara provides jet-black lash coverage that makes your lashes gorgeously long and thick without the clumping, giving your gorgeous eyes all day long.
I have this and I love this. Now I have two sample tubes so I will be holding off getting a full size and use them both of them up. I have long lashes so this just makes it pop when I add this. My favorite mascara I tried so far!
They’re Real! Eye Makeup Remover
Sample Size // 7.5ml
Price // 133php
Full Size // 50ml | Price // 1,000php
This powerful eyeliner and mascara remover gently removes waterproof eye make-up without irritating your eyes. Simply saturate a cotton pad with the creamy gel and slowly be amazed at how easy it is to remove your eye makeup!
This is new as well that came out with the Pushup Liner as it needed it’s own remover. I love how tiny it is and I just think it is so cute. The packaging is the same as the full size and I love the quilting on it makes it more sophisticated for some reason. I’m so glad I got the set so I can really try them all together.

I got one of these before but never used it as I didn’t have a store close to me but now that I do I am going to take advantage of this and keep it in my bag just in case I need to use it.
That does it for the November BDJ Box. I really liked this box even though it was a Benefit sample box again. I got some new things to try out which was great. I also thank BDJ for knowing me so well and giving me the perfect box. I saw other variants of this and was not a fan but mine was spot on and was perfect for me. I loved the ones I got and my favorites were the Posiebalm and he Facial Cream. I did enjoy getting the They’re Real Trio sample set and was lucky to get all three as some didn’t get the same. I definitely give them points this month for matching this one to me and getting it right and it was like they read my mind on what I wanted to try. Thank you so much BDJ. I have been loving your boxes every month now and can’t wait to see what the December box has and whats in sore for that one because I know it sold out very quickly. I’m glad I subscribed early so I think I’m guaranteed to get one.
The total for this is estimated around 1,896php plus one-time use samplers: Instant Comeback Facial Serum, Total Moisture Facial Cream & Hello Gorgeous! Voucher. I figured each item out and that is a rough estimation and don’t trust my ath as I am terrible at it thats why I am a Communication graduate not an accountant. I think it is fair and even though there is no full samples and only deluxe samples I still think we got our 580php back. I was happy with the samples I go and want to try all of them so I guess that makes up for it as well. No waste for me this month and I will hope to try the 7 day challenge but don’t hold me to it as well. Like I said before and I’m sure other people who love BDJ as well would love a full size item one of these boxes next year. Even a coupon for half off would be fine with me but we shall see. Great box again this month BDJ and keep up the good work!
If you want your own BDJ Box they have subscription open for March 2015 so start subscribing if you want a fun surprise every month as well that has items just like this.
