BDJ Box 7-Day Challenge: Initial Impressions
Posted February 21, 2013on:
As you may have read in my unboxing of the February BDJ Box, I’ve decided to take on the BDJ Box 7-Day Challenge. How does it work? Basically I have to use the Shiseido Benefiance WrinkleResist24 Night Emulsion and Balancing Softener and the Shiseido White Lucent Spot Correcting Serum for a straight 6 days, and the Shiseido White Lucent Mask on the 7th day. Sounds easy enough, and by doing this I can test out the entire set of skincare products in the BDJ Box. As an added benefit, I’ll get even and clear skin!
It took me a while to discover the proper order of these products. Basically first I have to cleanse my face with my preferred cleanser. Then I put the Balancing Softener onto a cotton pad and use all over my face. After that, I squeeze a bit of the Spot Correcting Serum and again spread all over my face (supposedly it’s only for discolored parts of the face, but I decided to use it all over). Lastly, spread the Night Emulsion all over my face.
For reference, this is how my face looked like before I started the challenge:
I will be taking pictures in the exact same spot (and approximately the same time) every day to see if I’m getting some progress. I’m actually done with my 3rd challenge day, and here are the pictures.
At this point I thought that the lighting was pretty bad, so I took another Day 2 picture in a brighter room.
Here it is again, comparing the Day 0 and Day 3 pictures:
Initial impressions: It could possibly be the lighting, but I do feel that the overall skin tone of my face has lightened a bit. I do not have a lot of blemishes to begin with, so I am just looking for a clear and healthy looking skin instead of dull and tired. Even at Day 3 it looks like the regimen is working. I can’t wait to see the progress at the end of Day 7!
