REVIEW: Snoe HyperFunction Foundation + Serum

12 Feb

I got this little baby from the box Snoe Beauty Inc. gave away during the 2012 Bloggers’ Event. It’s one of my most favorite item from the samples!


Product Description:

Snoe Premium Cosmetics HyperFunction Fond de Teint + Serum is a lightweight formula that gives skin perfect coverage, skin healing ingredients, antioxidants and broad-spectrum sun protection. This feel-good formula is extra emollient to instantly “melt” into skin and give it a fresh, healthy glow. Over time, it also helps replenish and strengthen skin. 

It’s a multi fuctional serum foundation that will also protect your skin from the sun’s harmful rays while creating a flawless finish.

Directions: Apply directly on skin or use a Stippling or Foundation brush. For perfect and matte application set with any Snoe finishing powder.

Infused with:

  • Escargot – repairs damaged skin cells, repair scars, and boost production of collagen and elastin. It has anti-bacterial, anti acne, anti inflammatory properties.
  • Broccoli – rich in vitamin C and K that helps whiten and improve the skin elasticity 
  • Acai berry – said to be the fruit that has the most powerful antioxidants in the world!
X0 - Vanilla Creme - Light with Neutral Undertones

The sampler is really convenient for me, especially in toting around my kikay kit. I don’t double dip to keep this tub clean. I just ‘pour’ a dollop onto the back of my palm and use my finger or a foundation brush to apply it on my face.

Luckily, the shade XO – Vanilla Creme (Light with neutral undertones) blended well on my skin.

Who could say no to the benefits it gives? It heals, whitens, protects with SPF20, gives a flawless finish and has antioxidants to boot. I was hooked immediately with this, plus the scent is amazing. It has this light fresh scent to it which I really like.

This has a creamy consistency which can easily be blended. It blends well on my skin (too well that it disappears!) and stays that way. I am so happy because there was no obvious foundation streaks, no redness around the nose and no noticeable pores seen. It looks so seamless and is great for getting the no make-up make-up look! It smoothens, evens out skin tone, and gives a flawless, semi-matte finish.

It does not feel thick and heavy on  face. I think this is more of a tinted moisturizer than a foundation because its lightweight and gives a light to medium coverage. You will still need a concealer to hide the imperfections. Snoe Poudre Extraordinaire is a perfect match for setting this foundation serum.

The full size of this foundation serum sells at 1199php. It may seem too expensive, but if you read the label, a bottle has 55ml of product. Quite a steal since most foundations in the market are only available in 30ml sizes or less.

What I like about it:
– the rare ingredients and their benefits
– it is a product of Snoe!
– has spf 20 (I still use my trusty sunscreen though)
– gives a flawless complexion with light to medium coverage
– smoothens and evens out my skin tone
– no need for primer because it makes pores less noticeable
– a little goes a long way
– doesn’t feel thick, heavy or oily
– doesn’t cake
– has a sweet scent to it
I wish:
– I could buy the full size version soon!
I will definitely get the full size when this tub runs out! I will be keeping this tub so I can just refill and bring this with me.
