Gifts & Hauls: Beauty Edition

I don't usually receive this much beauty stuff on a normal weekend, and I am truly grateful! All these stuff I either received from events, as prizes, or for review. But nevertheless, expect to see reviews on these on my upcoming posts.

Last weekend, I attended another Belle de Jour (BDJ) Rendezvous, entitled "Street Chic". I wanted to blog about the event, but when I came a few minutes to 1PM, the event was already starting and the venue was packed so I couldn't take nice pictures from my seat. Nevertheless, I will try to be an early bird on the next BDJ Rendezvous so I write about it too! :D

As a tradition, no Bella leaves empty handed every BDJ event. Each loot bag has a back issue of either Women's Health or Cosmopolitan, a Goody hair tie, samples from Physiogel, Black Beauty, Pantene, and Kiehls, plus some cash vouchers and flyers from brand partners.

BDJ Rendezvous Loot

After filtering the stuff, these are the ones that I will definitely use. Haha! (Thanks so much for ALL the goodies, BDJ!)

But wait, there's more...

SkinWhite Classic Set

BDJ had a raffle during the event where most (if not all) Bellas won something from their generous brand partners. I won a set of skincare products from SkinWhite! I don't know why I keep on winning whitening products, but it's okay. Haha! My favorite part of this prize would have to be the bag. Kidding! I'm most interested in the lotion and soap, but I'm really liking the bag. It's cute even if it's blue.

All BDJ 2013 Planners have coupons that entitle each Bella to a FREE Beauty Travel Set and Kolours Luster No-Ammonia DIY Hair Dye. You can either claim the items at their office somewhere in Taguig or during a BDJ event. Taguig is too far from my home, so I was very happy when they announced that we could claim the free items on the event venue (which was in Shangri-La Mall).

Beauty Travel Set (with products from Hygienix, SkinWhite, and Vitress)

Kolours Luster Demi-Permanent Hair Dye

I believe all shades from this hair color line are darkish/natural, and I received the darkest one which is Pamper Me Brown. Who knows, I might want to darken my hair sometime, and when I do, I'd use this and give you an update!

Bejewelled Purple Pen

This one was a super sweet present from my BDJ friend Lala! I met her way back 2010 during my first BDJ Rendezvous. She designed this pen herself! She was my seatmate then, and we've been friends ever since. (Thank you for this, Lala! ♥)

Just when I thought I've received enough beauty stuff to call it a day already, I saw a package waiting for me when I got home.

Kerastase Cristalliste Set

I finally received the Kerastase Cristalliste set I won from Kerastase Philippines last March. They're having a new promo wherein you could also their Elixir Ultime 24K Gold products so you better join ASAP!

Nivea Body UV Whitening Serum SPF 25 PA++
Nivea Sun Protect & Refresh Invisible Cooling Mist SPF 50

I also received products from Nivea Philippines for review. I'm all about caring for my skin (and am totally vain with it), so I'm excited to try these out! (Special thanks to Mikki and Castro PR for sending these over!)

Thank you for everything! To my readers, I may be sick right now and also dead tired from work, but that won't stop me from writing. Till the next post! :)
