This month the BDJ Box teamed up with L’Oreal Paris to give us 7 summer essentials to rock the Summer Glam look.Although I’m not a huge fan of the brand L’Oreal I do appreciate the large size bottles of the Arginine Essence Shampoo and Conditioner in the box.
3 other products in the box have piqued my interest.The first one is the Shine Caresse Lip Color, a combination of lipstick and lip gloss. It’s moisturizing, light weight and doesn’t have the sticky feeling most lip glosses have. I got the Milady shade and although this color appears a bit purplish, when applied on my lips, it’s actually a nice soft pink hue. What I like about the Shine Caresse Lip Color is it works as lip stain so even if you wipe it off, the color stays on your lips and it looks natural. It’s moisturizing but not as moisturizing compared to Coffret D’or Bu Rouge and the AUBE Essence Premium Rouge.
The next one is the L’Oreal UV Perfect UV Protector. It promises 12-hour sunscreen protection with SPF 50. It has antioxidants and the texture is light and velvety. The Apricot shade matches my skin tone perfectly.
The downside, it reeks of alcohol (but I have a very sensitive olfactory) and it might dry out my skin.
And the last one is the L’Oreal UV Perfect BB Max. Like the UV Perfect UV Protector, it promises 12 hours of SPF50 plus it has the color correction properties of a CC cream. It promises to give your skin a brighter complexion while fighting different types of skin discoloration: yellowish, reddish, and brownish skin.
I like the dewy finish of this BB Cream. The coverage is very light though so if you want more coverage, use another layer or liquid foundation or powder foundation.
The box also includes a 5mL sample of L’Oreal’s Youth Code Pre-Essence anti aging moisturizer and L’Oreal’s Color Riche Les Nail Art Sticker.
