I Got Prettified at the BDJ Box Beauty Social

Hi dearies! I apologize for this late post. I know that this event came in first before the BDJ Fair 2013. Time was not on my side weeks ago. But now, I have learned how to play with it and developed a technique to write fast. Yay! Bellas conquer all odds! So here I am writing about the BDJ Beauty Social...

Primp and Prettify was the theme of the second BDJ Box Beauty Social. It took place in SM North EDSA Skydome on September 29, 2013. I'm glad that they didn't wait for a year to have it! It just means that the technology for skin care and makeup is becoming a trend and improving at a fast rate, too! 


The stage of the BDJ Box Beauty Social Primp and Prettify

I was there early because I registered for a talk at 1:00 PM. But before I went to the stage area, I decided to explore some booths first! The place was all about cosmetics and I was loving the vibe!

Cure Natural Aqua Gel had a booth there! The girls gave me a demo and free samples! Cure is the best exfoliator I have ever used!

The Too Cool for School stall is something to love about, too! That was the first time I heard of the brand I was very impressed with their activities! There was a photobooth, skin consultation, free makeover, and a Korean game. Lots of girls were to try the makeup products. But since the queue was long, I decided to play the stick game called Yutnori, instead. I would like to experience it as I am exploring Korean culture, as well.

 These are the results of my sticks and so, I got three samples! Yay! More samples!

When our attention was called, it was time to go to the talk area. I registered for talks: Get Real with the BDJ Box Beauty Ministry for some Q&A and the Ready for Anything Skin with Shiseido segment. 


The talks I attended

Kate Alvarez, Nicole Hernandez, and Tara Cabullo gave us advice on skin care

Ms. Carmel Villongco of Shiseido identifies the daily stressors that affect our health and skin.

Fighting stressors with Shiseido's latest technology! 
The reason why I chose to attend the first two talks is so that I can explore the booths freely afterwards, without time pressure.

Each booth has its own activity but it was the Revlon people who welcomed me! (^_^) They had free makeup lessons. I was finally able to try this cosmetic product called CC Cream! Our makeup artist and instructor was Ms. Ghe. She taught us how to do a contoured eye shadow that I have always wanted to learn. I was also able to try out Revlon products, too. The foundation, concealers, primers, and powders apply well and lasted long on my skin.

Good thing I was able to put on makeup because the Garnier booth had a surprise for us: a meet and greet session with Ms. Georgina Wilson! She is my favorite model and I admire her! I was able to take a photo with her last year and I couldn't believe that I had a another chance! 

Garnier and Georgina launched the new product PureActive Fruit Energy Energizing Facial Foam on stage.

All the while, I explored the Garnier stall. And I give to them the Best Booth award! They served non-alcoholic beverages at the bar and a photobooth! I didn't want to be alone on the photo, so I asked the pretty Garnier girls to pose with me! They are so beautiful!

Melon Shots

Citrus Mojito... this is my favorite! It looks nice, too!

And now... the meet and greet session! After the talk, Georgina went to the Garnier booth. I was one of the first in line for the photo op session. Aside from the picture that I got from the official photographer, I also had a selfie with her. She is as gorgeous as ever! 


Me and Georgina Wilson
Seeing Georgina made my day complete and it was time for me to go home. I learned a lot about skin care in this event. The world of cosmetics is expanding! New promising products and brands are coming out by the minute! Now, with all the samples in my loot, it's time for me to try them out and see what works best for my skin!

[Review] Gluta-C Intense Whitening Body Scrub

Gluta-C Intense Whitening Body Scrub is a product that impressed me on my first try. Mostly, when I review beauty products, I use it at least a week to see the effects and results on my skin. I never thought that a body scrub can make me go "wow!" instantly! I got this from my Gluta-C Sample Room haul . And I used it the day after I got it. I was that excited!  This product is packaged in a tub. It is a soft, viscous, and grainy cream. The smell is nice, too! It has a cool perfume scent.  120g tub of Gluta-C Body Scrub This is how I used this: I wet my skin and then took an ample amount of the scrub and then applied it using circular motions. Afterwards, I put liquid body wash on a loofah then rubbed on my skin. I could feel the small grains from the scrub gently exfoliating my skin. I love the combination it does with the body wash. The bubbles and the foam make it comfortable! All the while, I know that my skin is thoroughly cleansed!  Here is the surprise!

[Food Review] Everyday Tous Les Jours

My addiction with Tous les Jours started when my cousin brought home a whole load of breads from the said bakery. She recommended that their products are of high quality, while handing me their bestseller aptly called as "Sweet Black Rice Bread with Cream Cheese". Upon taking my first bite, I couldn't stop eating it up until the last piece. With that inspiration, I decided to go visit one of their stores for a closer look.  I went to their branch in SM North. The store is located in The Block near SM Hypermarket. Saturated with yellow lights and wooden furniture, Tous Les Jours had the french bakery/coffee shop aura.

Following my cousin's recommendation, I bought the one with cream cheese filling. However, I had a dilemma which one to choose as it has two variants. The one with black sesame? or plain

Rain and HyunA

After four months, the Rain Effect still leaves a mark in me. It is a great album and if I have all the time in the world, I would feature each track in a full write up. For this sixth volume, Rain had a song which featured the K-Pop artist HyunA. It is entitled "Where are you going, Oppa?" and it has a nice Arabian-like beat infused with bass and hip hop, it hints of sexiness too.  For today, I will write about this song that was successful in bringing out a reaction in me. Let’s listen… Fan video by Miyu MaGirlYura So now you understand why it brought a reaction in me? Hehehe ~ It means that the artist is successful in bringing out the emotion through a song. One thing is for sure, Rain chose the perfect girl to sing with him. Both are top caliber artists in their own field. And because of him, I now like HyunA and I researched about her. Kum Hyuna (HyunA) I already know the entertainer named HyunA. I can't remember how, though. I just know her as the n
