BDJ Beauty Box - March 2014 Benefit Box

My Belle De Jour Beauty Box March 2014 box finally arrived! I always expect my BDJ box every first week of the month. One Thursday morning, the mail man came and handed me this very lame and light package. I knew it was BDJ because I know the size of their parcels. When I held it, it was light as a feather and from that moment, I expected I was going to get disappointed this month. So I lifelessly opened the package...

Much to my surprise, I saw this heavenly box with a very, very familiar design!

When I finally remembered which brand owns the design, I screamed in surprise : "SHOCKS, BENEFIT!!" My emotions suddenly shifted from being unhappy to extremely excited! It's an exclusive Benefit & BDJ box, so whatever  it is inside, I was sure I was going to like it!

So what's inside the March 2014 Belle De Jour Beauty Box? Let's find out!

Tada! A lot of Benefit products! When I saw all the items inside, I was sold! I fell in love!

None of the items came in full-size but I'm not really complaining. Benefit is Benefit and we can't expect them to give out their products just like that. If we try to calculate the prices of all the items, it may come to more or less Php 1,000! Not a bad deal since you only paid Php 580 for the whole box! 

The January 2014 box was a little "meh" but this March 2014 has got to be one of my favorites, if not my favorite! I've been wanting to try all these Benefit products but I kept releasing the thought each time I would remember how much each bottle costs! It's just bad that they didn't have the Benetint in it... but still a very nice box! BDJ deserves 2 thumbs up and a warm hug for this March 2014 box!

BDJ always surprises their subscribers with amazing boxes each month! It's like getting a box of chocolate from a suitor each month! lol. If you want to get your own Belle De Jour Box, be sure to visit their website HERE.
