My First Beauty Box of 2014Just when I thought I was over the lure of beauty boxes, I was sent this jampacked Glamourbox* sponsored by local beauty brand, Snoe Beauty. I’ve always, always been enticed to try out Snoe’s range of beauty products but have been overwhelmed by their wide selection of goods that I’m left not knowing where to begin. They carry cosmetics, skin, body and hair care products that contain the most innovative of ingredients. Had I not been sent this box, I would have been itching to get one myself anyway because it’s a great way to try out Snoe Beauty.
The box contains a whopping 7 products, with 6 of them full-sized! I haven’t had the chance to use most of these to compose a full string of thoughts so no reviews yet, just first impressions of the items!
HAIR HEROES Agent Zero Cleansing Serum
I was a bit confused at first – a hair cleansing serum. Sooooo, a shampoo? A clarifying shampoo? Anyway, I was sold on zero sulfates, silicones and fragrance but have yet to try if my scalp likes it because recently I’ve been experimenting with shampoo and I find some that give me flakies and dandruff (TMI, sorry). Php 599
Body Ritual Recipes
Not really a lotion junkie but I tried this on right away and I must say I’ve used it compulsively already! Instant moisture fix that the skin soaks up completely in a few seconds (1 minute tops!) and the smell is uhh, heavenly! I may repurchase this in a heartbeat. Php 249
Snoe White Beauty Bar in Organic Papaya
I am a diligent papaya soap user. Not at all for its whitening promise, but more for its exfoliating and smoothening properties. My battle scars and blemishes were faded into oblivion with continued use of a local Papaya soap brand that my mom, sister and even mom-in-law swear by, so I’m pretty psyched to try Snoe’s version of the ever-famed Papaya. Php 139
Snoe White Beauty Bar in Lightening Licorice
I wish they had included either another variant (moisturizing, maybe?), but I appreciate that they included this Lightening Licorice soap for those sensitive to papaya’s strong exfoliating properties. Php 139
Snoe Poudre Extraordinaire Face PowderSo, I’m most excited for this tiny litle pot of goodness. I’m just not sure which shade I got as I don’t see it anywhere in the packaging. I haven’t opened this just yet but have heard raves upon raves on the local blogging community about this loose powder with acai berry in its ingredients. Php 799
Bedside Besobalm Lip Treatment in Pink Pout PuckerI actually got a Besobalm from my first Glamourbox (which is the very first Glamourbox actually!) and my husband is the one reaping its moisturizing benefits till this day. However, I’m excited that this version is kinda like my beloved Dior Lip Glow that changes the puckers into a luscious pink color. Php 249
Fizzy Clean Foaming Hand SanitizerA foaming hand sanitizer – nifty! Ever since I became a mom, I’ve turned into a sanitize-freak. I’ve been told to chill a little and not SANITIZE ALL TEH THINGS~ but Selene caught the Hand-Foot-Mouth virus recently and there’s no chilling allowed since. LOL! But yes, I’m actually quite happy receiving this. Not drying at all despite my non-stop application all day. Not a big fan of the scent, though. I think I’ll sniff the other scents when I go to a Snoe counter. Php 179
OVERALLI am quite happy with this box had I paid PHP 595 for it. The total cost of the whole box amounts to *pulling out what’s left of my math skills* PHP 1554 for the full-sized items and around Php 120 for the small-sized Poudre Extraordinaire pulling the total to PHP 1674 . Almost three times the price of the subscription! Of course, everything is offset by your delightfulness or lack thereof in each of the items which makes subscription boxes a hit or a miss. For me personally, I think this box deserves to be on the hit list. Are you subscribed to any box? What Snoe Beauty products have you tried and loved? Do share, you guys!
