Unboxing the Special Edition SNOE Glamourbox

4 Feb

Glamourbox had tied up with SNOE Beauty, Inc. late last year and this partnership blossomed into something wonderful. They were able to come up with a Special Edition SNOE Glamourbox.

There were very limited boxes and I was not able to get one on the first batch. Luckily, they were able to open more slots and I made sure that I get to subscribe on the second batch.

It came around the third week of January and I was amazed to find that the box felt heavier than usual. Though somehow, I expected it to be one. Giddily, I opened the box immediately and this is what I found:

SNOE Rogue Deluxe Complete Lip Care | All You Need in a Lip Product

6 Jun

I am very grateful for Snoe Beauty because they were the very first to invite me to attend a bloggers event. The Snoe Team are all very accommodating and approachable. Not to mention they offer great product innovations that work and are worth every peso! All their products have eye-catching packaging and details!

One of the first items I’ve tried is from their makeup line — the lipstick that is labeled “Rogue Deluxe.”

Snoe’s Rouge Deluxe is an oil-infused rich and creamy lip color in the season’s hottest hues. It will hydrate, nourish, and revitalize lips. While delivering long-lasting color, this product works to smoothen and soften the lips, making your pout extra kissable. Edited to only the most fashionable shades, it’s impossible to pick just one.

Directions: Prep lips with an application of Snoe’s BesoBalm. For best results, apply with a lip brush, first applying to center of lips, and then blending outwards.

I got the shades X1 Heavenly Pink and X12 Vintage Rose. Quite pole to pole isn’t it? X1 is a pastel pink shade and X12 is a mauvy nude pink shade. Both shades work well on my yellowish skin tone.

Everything is to love about this — the packaging, the ingredients, the shade, the pigmentation and color pay-off, the buttery-cream texture, the moisturizing feel, the comfy wear and the creamy-satin finish.

Unboxing: FEB Glamourbox

20 Feb

I have mixed emotions upon receiving the Feb Glamourbox. I felt happy that it arrived early (days after the BDJ Feb box arrived) yet I feel upset about it.

I loved the box because it is sturdy and can still be reused for organizing stuff. Through its simplicity, it looked so glamorous.

???????????????????????????????Here’s a sneak peek on what’s inside:

???????????????????????????????

2. Carmex Squeeze Tube/Jar (full size 10ml and 7.5g respectively, Php 109.75)

???????????????????????????????

Carmex Squeeze Tube/Jar contains natural moisturizers such as cocoa butter & lanolin. These and other emollients give you healthy-looking lips by moistening  preventing chapping caused by the environment.

Samples:

1. Calvin Klein Beauty (full size 100ml, Php 5,498)

???????????????????????????????

Sophisticated, confident and radiant, Beauty evokes the ultimate power of femininity and sophistication. It captures the spirit of a woman who is beautiful from the inside out, with an aura that radiates.

3. The Body Shop Vitamin E Moisture Cream (full size 50ml, Php 695)

???????????????????????????????

Vouchers:

???????????????????????????????

1. Chi Dermatology Clinic (Php 500 value on all services)

2. Wild Peach Cosmetics (35% off on customizable makeup palettes)

3. Cuzo (Php 500 value, card is housed in a leather business card holder). I was ready to throw the box fillers when I unearthed another surprise!

My Thoughts:

Though you get more than what you pay for, one can just wish for more. I wish they would be fair in putting the same things on all the boxes. I think there are some boxes with Wild Peach Cosmetics Palettes and Kerastase Oil. Glamourbox shouldn’t be putting up a comparison/contest to their subscribers on who will get what the next time. I really wish they’ll do it just like how BDJ Box does it: same size of lipsticks and nail polishes but the shades / colors differ from one box to the other.

Looking forward to better boxes the next months…

REVIEW: Snoe Beauty Beso Balm

20 Feb

This free full-size sample (which costs 149php) came from the BDJ Dec-Jan Box and I was so thrilled because I’ve been hearing good reviews about this. Beso Balm is one of Snoe’s best sellers!

Now it’s my time to review it.

Product Description:

Plumps. Soothes. Protects. Freshens breath.

INSTRUCTIONS: Use before kissing or whenever you feel like it!

INGREDIENTS: Coconut oil, Sunflower seed oil, Beeswax, Spearmint leaf oil, Shea butter, Tocopheryl Acetate, Octyl Methoxycinnamate, Menthol, Benzophenone 3, Blue 1 (CI42090), Yellow 5 (CI19140)

???????????????????????????????When I first opened it, I was surprised to see granules on the balm. I wasn’t sure if it’s expired or something because there’s no expiration date in the tube. Anyway, I still tried it on.

???????????????????????????????

It is a green balm that is in a regular lip balm tube. It strikes a perfect balance between wax and oil which is a good thing.

I love how this lip balm glides on my lips, though I felt my lips were being scrubbed because of the ‘granules’. In an instant, I felt the cooling minty sensation that gave me a feel that my lips became plump. It didn’t really freshened the breath, it just sort of cools the inside of the mouth. The cooling and breath ‘freshening’ lasted only until the minty sensation came off. I think its good for about 10minutes.

I love how it makes my lips feel soft and hydrated. I just can’t stand the granules at all. It’s like sugar has been added to this. I wipe off the granules/scrub and just be satisfied with what’s left on my lips. Because of this, I don’t use this as often as I would want to. It just feels uncomfortable putting on a ‘lip scrub’ all the time.

What I like about this:

(+) it is from Snoe Beauty!

(+) mentholated feel and taste

(+) goes on sheer

(+) has a cute packaging
(+) it comes in a tube so it’s more hygienic
(+) not greasy, not waxy, not oily – it’s just right
(+) affordable for 149php
(+) available in stores/kiosks/online
What I didn’t like:
(-) the granules. I think there’s something wrong with what they sent me. I believe other Snoe Beso Balm doesn’t have this sugary scrub effect.
(-) it has no SPF
Will I purchase? Maybe. I think I’ll check out Snoe beauty kiosks for one that has no granules like mine.

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.

REVIEW: SNOE Parallel Pigments CC Cream

10 Feb

Just when we thought BB creams are enough, come CC Creams. What is a CC Cream? It stands for Color Control or Color correcting Cream.  BB cream is primarily a skincare product with SPF to boot. CC cream is an improved version of the BB cream, developed to give the same skincare benefits of the BB cream with more nourishing ingredients to provide better coverage.

Snoe Beauty Inc. is the first to release CC Creams in the Philippines! YAY! You really have to give it to Snoe to keep up with the cosmetic trends. Here are the CC Cream samplers I got from the Snoe Beauty Blogger’s Event I attended last November 2012. You can check it out here.

Snoe Beauty Inc. calls it Parallel Pigments CC Cream. 

???????????????????????????????

It comes in 4 shades, namely:

  • Lavander – will brighten sallow skin
  • Wheat – gives a subtle glow to dull skin and will boost radiance.
  • Grass – covers red blemishes and blotchy skin
  • Honey – covers bluish under-eye circles, bruises, facial veins

???????????????????????????????Product Claims:

Snoe Parallel Pigments CC Cream Color Correction Complexion Cream

Banana. Guava. Acai Berry

.42 OZ 12g

Parallel Pigments CC Cream was developed to retain all the skincare benefits of BB cream with added nourishing ingredients and the additional aim to provide more effective color correction. 

Contains: Banana- provides antioxidant Vitamin C, vitamin B6 and Manganese for healthy skin. Guava- Vitamin K, C &lycopene to treat skin discoloration, such as dark circles, spider veins, rosacea, acne irritation and overall splotchiness, skin healing and prevention of DNA damage Acai berry- Most powerful and nutritious fruit in the world. Contains the highest level of antioxidants than any other fruit.

???????????????????????????????The sampler tubs are really useful because I can just bring it with me anywhere. It can fit even the smallest kikay kits!

???????????????????????????????

It has a smooth texture and a creamy consistency. It is not thick and heavy like other BB creams I’ve tried. Don’t be deceived by the colors because it really corrects the imperfections. It sort of neutralizes those skin problems that needs to be hidden or corrected.

It is sheer and does not really give enough coverage, but liquid foundation and loose powder can do the trick in achieving more coverage. I only need a pea sized amount for my whole face because a little goes a long way. Most of the time, I use lavander just on my under eye area and it acts like a concealer in brightening my dark circles.

There’s also a big plus that makes me want to smell it. I get giddy whenever I use it because of the yummy scent it has! Thanks to the ingredients like  banana, guava and acai berry. The scent comes off naturally after you apply it, though. I am just not sure of the sun protection factor it gives since it is not indicated so I still apply my trusted sunblock from Belo Essentials.

Defintely going to try out the other two variants from Snoe!

REVIEW: SNOE Here Comes the Sunblock SPF45

21 Nov

This is my first product from Snoe. I really wanted to try their products way back and now finally I can!

Since the sun is always present, even in cloudy days, it is a must that everyone should be applying sunblock every 2 hours especially if one is going to spend the day outdoors. I stay indoors most of the time yet the sun’s harsh rays can still penetrate windows so I need to protect myself as well.

I am always on a hunt for multitasking products that work for more sans the many applications. So I got this at Snoe’s 3rd Semi-Annual Bloggers Event at 20% off.

It is very eye catching, right? The packaging is very girly girl and cute. The pink and white combination is a given of what it claims to do: gives instant rosy white perfection.

I fell in love with its sweet floral scent too. I can apply it more often than every two hours because the scent is quite addicting! It has a liquid consistency, which is unusual for sunblocks. Unlike other sunblocks, this is non-sticky and absorbs quickly. I can’t attest that it really gives the rosy white effect it says. It was not stated broad spectrum UVA and UVB blocker so I think I cannot use this during really hot days especially during summer. I think this is good enough for everyday use and  if you’re just staying indoors most of the time.

 I plan to add this inside my bag so re-application is easy. The lid locks securely so I don’t have to worry about spills.

Here’s a summary of my likes and dislikes:

(+) very cute and sturdypackaging

(+) has SPF 45

(+) light, non, greasy and nonsticky

(+) has a nice, sweet smell that is not overpowering

(+) can be used for the face too

(+) very handy and can be brought anywhere with secure lids

(+) fair enough for 249php for 100ml

(-) no UVA and UVB broad spectrum indicated

What about you? What other Snoe Beauty products have you tried?
