2020 Belle de Jour Power Planner + ALL Coupons

Time for my yearly tradition of blogging about my favorite planner since 2009. I'm going to share with you what's inside the Belle de Jour Power Planner 2020 and ALL the coupons inside to help you decide if it's worth your money! 😉

I purchased mine last October 12, and it arrived October 29. For me, the wait was too long but at least it's now here. They also got my name wrong on the parcel, from Helen Blas (on my account), it became Helen Dy on the waybill, then they corrected it to Helen Chua. Ano na. Buti nakarating. 😕 I bought the classic design with the girl on the cover, and my sister bought the limited edition one. I liked hers better so we swapped. (Thanks, cyst!) 😜

The theme "the universe is in me" is beautiful. I so love the cover of the limited edition planner - it has a holographic galaxy!!! I appreciate the mood board, dream board, and menstrual tracker. Such a feminine touch, though I already have an app to track that time of the month.

Weekly view


2 fabric bookmarks + 1 magnetic bookmark (SO PRETTY!)

Bills Tracker & Cash Flow Tracker

The watercolor artworks are indeed beautiful, but the print is too light for me.

Time to reveal the coupons! 😍

Each BDJ 2020 Planner includes the BDJ Lifestyle Card with recurring perks all year round. My colleagues LOVE this because they always use it to get free upsize from CBTL.

My all time favorite coupon is the Buy 1 Get 1 Hydrotherapy Massage at Ace Water Spa (worth P600) because that alone covers the cost of the entire planner - and there's 2 of them! Parisian's coupons were better last year at 15% off, now it's 10% off. (I'd still use it.) I'm excited for the BYS Free Luxe Lips Sampler because... makeup! Revlon's 20% off on Candid products is useless - you can buy those at 50% off in Shopee when they go on sale. CBTL coupons are useful, and it's more cost-effective to just buy the BDJ Planner than collect 12 stamps at the cafe for their journal. Serenitea is forever at 5% off - last time I just saved P7, but I still used it. LOL. Lastly, the Native coupon (P100 off) is inconsistent with the Coupon Tracker (which states P500 off). Those are just my feedback/observation regarding the coupons.

Price: P598 but on currently sale at P500

SM K-Beauty Playground

Annyeong, chingu! 👯

Yesterday was a fun day because I was invited to play inside the SM K-Beauty Playground at SM Makati. I love how SM Beauty brought together all our favorite K-Beauty brands under one roof!

From K-Drama, K-Pop, to K-Beauty, the world has fallen in love with all things Korean. And the Philippines has gone a long way from loving sheet masks to embracing the entire Korean skincare routine.

💖 My SM K-Beauty Playground Passport 💖

I was handed this pink passport and I had to complete the activities to win K-Beauty goodies. SO FUN! 😍😍😍

1. K-Beauty Quiz

I took a simple quiz to determine what K-Beauty skincare trend fits me, and the answer was SUN STICK. For completing the quiz, I received these iWhite Korea Sleeping Gel Masks.

2. Sheet Mask Galore

For this activity, I had to guess the number of sheet masks on the shelf. The answer 150 was whispered to me by my beauty angel Kaycee. HAHA! Labyuuu! 😉 I got tons of sheet masks from Esfolio as prizes.

3. Be a Selfie Leader

I have written about rediscovering Leaders on my IG. For this activity, I took photos of Leaders products that piqued my interest and posted it on my IG Stories.

They have 4 variants of Primer Mask and they're at buy 1 get 1 for only PHP 69! You're supposed to use this 5 minutes before makeup application. Super curious about this. I got this variant from the event, so I'll be reviewing it soon!

Leaders Pore Covering Primer is perfect for oily skin! They have a pink tube which is for skin brightening. I love how they have expanded their product line; from mask sheets, they now have makeup that's exclusively sold here in the Philippines!

Leaders AC Control Concealer Real Derma Cover Make-up is made to cover your pimples. The active ingredients of this concealer is similar to the AC-Dressing Skin Clinic Mask.

4.  Beauty Catch

I'm always a victim of claw machines without grip (ugh), but this time was fun. I didn't catch anything, but they still made me pick a prize and I got 3 AHC Cellulose Masks (worth PHP 249 each). AHC is now available at Lazada!

5. Stack Up

Took a selfie with CosRX and got CosRX mini skincare products!

6. Match the Tiles

Another easy game! I matched 3 tiles and got minis from Dear, Klairs. I have the same mini Supple Preparation Toner bottle at home, while my sister has a big tub of Freshly Juiced Vitamin E Mask.

7. Pick a Pink

I have yet to try Banila Co makeup, but I have a tub of their iconic Clean It Zero Cleansing Balm at home. I brought some of it to my Taiwan trip last month and I like it because it's travel-friendly - no spills!

For this activity, I picked a pink ball from the bowl and got Banila Co Dear Hydration Mini Duo Kit containing toner, cotton pads, and boosting cream. I WILL bring these to my next travel, definitely!

8. Guess the Lip Shade

I had to match the lip shades on the board and I got freebies from Dear Dahlia, Kocostar, and a full sized iWhite Korea BB.Holic Everyday BB Cream. I initially got the Beige shade, but had it exchanged to Light. Notice the limited edition holographic packaging - they're launching it on 10.30.19!

9. K-Beauty Ball

Shoot the ball inside the pink box and win makeup, shoot it inside the blue box and win skincare. I initially wanted makeup - Vice Cosmetics BT21 Eyeshadow Palette (!!!) but my ball went inside the blue box and won me some skincare. I'm currently using Fresh Skinlab Jeju Aloe Ice as moisturizer, so I welcomed this sunblock and Seoul White Korea goodies! I've been curious about the soap as it's a mild kojic soap, so I'm excited to try it out as well.

10. Mediheal x BTS

Your tita Helen downloaded Tiktok for this. Hay, the things I do for skincare. Haha! 😤 For this activity, I got 2 Mediheal masks (YAY) and BTS photos which my sister took away from me as soon as I got home.

11. Annyeong, Oppa

Last activity: Take a photo with the resident oppa. I texted M first para hindi siya magselos sa cardboard oppa. HAHA! 😝 Then they gave me iWhite Korea stuff again!

Visiting the flagship K-Beauty zone in SM Makati is like being in Myeongdong without having to leave Philippines. Achieve the perfect K-Beauty look with the help of these bestsellers:

  • Skincare - CosRX, Dear Klairs, Neogen, Mediheal, Leaders, Banila Co, AHC, Esfolio, The Saem, Dewytree, Face Republic, iWhite, Seoul White, Luxe Organix, Fresh, Bling Pop, Jayjun, SNP
  • Cosmetics: BLK (Korean line), Yadah, Club Clio, Peripera, Vice BT21 line

Whether you're after the signature doll like makeup, glowing hydrated skin, or both, you can get your Korean beauty products at the SM K-Beauty Playground. According to Viki Encarnacion, Customer Director of Watsons/SM Beauty, they will be bringing in MORE brands in the coming days. Sounds pretty exciting to me! 😍
