Snoe Skincare Product Haul + Review

Upon strolling the new extension of Festival Mall, Alabang which is the Trademall, one beautiful kiosk caught my attention and that is the Snoe products! I must say, I had a love at first sight with their packaging. Cute and unique! Hindi na ako nagpatumpik tumpik pa at nagtanong na ako kay ateng sales lady.



Much to my surprise, they have a buy 1 take 1 of any product that has the same price or lower in price compared to the item you’re going to purchase. Saan ka pa! Though, the promo can only be availed every weekend. However, I received a message from them last Oct 31 informing us that the promo will only be valid until November 1-2, 2017. I’m sorry for posting this a little too late as I want to make an honest review based on what I truly experienced after using the products for 3 weeks.

So without further a do, here are the products I bought from Snoe:

  • It’s Oat-K! It’s Alright!, 399.00 php

About the product:

Foaming cleansing oil thoroughly removes dirt, excess oil, color cosmetics — even waterproof maacara — while helping calm and soothe skin.

This skin care essential is to use around the eyes and suits all skin types.

My thoughts

Pros:

-Cute product name and packaging!

-Moisturizing

– I like its super mild smell

-Removes excess make up

-No parabens and other harmful chemicals

Cons:

-it doesn’t foam enough for me but maybe because it was an oil based product.

Rating: 6/10

Would I repurchase again? I don’t think so. For a facial wash, I always like it to be foamy as this can make my face feeling refreshed and squeaky clean. (Is it just me? Lol)

  • Awesome Poresome, 399.00php (but I got it for free because of the facial wash)

-It actually removed most of my black heads(nose area) immediately after first use.

– It did minimized my pores

Cons:

Rating: 9/10

Would I repurchase again? I’m so inlove with this scrub ’cause it does what it says. Will definitely repurchase again in the future.

  • Shoo—zit. Don’t bother me!, 299.00 php 

Ingredients:

Crown wood fern, Aqua, Ethyl Alcohol, Zinc Oxide, Maltodextrin/Dryopteris Filix—mas Root Extract, Fragrance DMDM Hydantoin

My thoughts

Pros:

-Love the name and the packaging

-It does help prevent breakouts (even during/after those sleepless nights)

-Mattifying

Cons:

-A bit pricey for a 50ml toner

-Dries up quickly

-Overpowering smell

Rating: 8/10

Would I repurchase again? I have been loving this toner and it does prevent breakouts plus it lightened my dark spots around my forehead. So, I will 100% buy again after I finished this bottle.

  • BesoBalm, 299.00 php (got it for free because of the toner)

Ingredients:

Castor Seed Oil, Sucrose, Beeswax, Mint Essence, MethaPiperita Oil, CocoaNucifera Oil, Menthol Crystals

Pros:

-love the minty smell

-it moisturizes my lips

Cons:

-a bit pricey for a lip balm

-it does exfoliate the lips a little but did not fully softens and remove dead skins.

Rating: 6/10

Would I repurchase again? No. This one is a bit expensive for me compared to other lip balms I’ve tried before and I can say they are also effective.
Done! Hope you liked my mini haul plus review. Please tune in for more reviews like this. Thank you💕

Kind regards,

8 Christmas Gift Ideas 2016

Yay! Christmas is just around the corner and of course, I know a lot of people now started to shop a few items under their lists. But if you’re having difficulties on coming up on that “perfect gift” to give, that shows how well you know the recipient but without breaking the bank, then this post might help you with that struggle of yours.

Today, I gathered tons of affordable gift ideas to share with you guys that would be perfect to give to your family, friends or boyfriend/girlfriend.

  1. UNCOMMON MUGS

You can never go wrong with mugs, I honestly don’t know anyone who hate using mugs. Specially, for a coffee or tea person, they’ll be thrilled on having/using this one of a very few kind of mugs. But the downside is, you can only buy these kind of mugs online.

2. SUNGLASSES

Sunglasses are useful, fun and a great gift for fashionistas. But if you’re buying someone who wears prescription glasses, don’t worry, because you could always provide them with a gift certificate, so they can get the right glasses for their eyes.

3. INSTAX WITH FILM

This stuff is so amazing! These are basically like a polaroids, take a photo and it automatically dispenses your photo. Though, this is a bit expensive, but its price is now much cheaper than before! There are also a bunch of discounts at the present, since holiday seasons are coming so you might get a great deal after all.

4. 2017 PLANNER NOTEBOOK

We all know that a new calendar year will also begin 6 days after Christmas, this could be a useful gift to your friends and you could get yourself one too! I myself planning to have one too. Hehe.

5. PORTABLE CHARGER

With the high in demand of mobile devices nowadays, you can never go wrong with those portable chargers or so we call it Powerbanks. They’re completely functional and quite cute as well. For that techie friend or family member of yours, this gift will surely be appreciated for they will be able to charge their phones whenever they are.

6. WATCH

In case you’re also looking for something to reward yourself this holiday season or a gift to give to someone, you should think about getting a watch. It is worth it, because watches can be used as an important fashion statements and they’ll love it. There are numerous local and international brands available here in the philippines to buy watches; some  of them are expensive but there are also a lot of affordable ones.

7. NAIL POLISH SETS

Yep, nail polishes will be your go-to for the nail addicts. Not only is nail polish a fun and amazing present to give, but also, its every season must have accessory. Who doesn’t want to always have that gorgeous nails on fleek.

8. DIY GIFTS

I know it was a bit cheesy and some may say it’s corni, but for me, giving someone a gift you made yourself makes it much more meaningful to them. This could definitely show how special the recipient is to you, because of the time, love and effort you spent on these gifts.

For me, when it comes to gift giving “it is the thought that counts,” it doesn’t matter how much the gift should cost, as long as it was given whole heartedly, no money or anyone else could equalizs the effort, love and thoughts wrapped in that present. But if you’re still having a hard time thinking of what could be the best gift for a certain person, don’t worry! You just have to carefully think about the receiver’s interests, needs, wants, likes and dislikes, in order to find the appropriate gift to give from the heart.

So those are the affordable gift ideas I got for you guys. I hope you did find some inspirations out of it.

Thank you for reading!❤
