Glamourbox's Special Edition Snoe Box Unboxing + First Impressions

Hello Pinay Beauties! I just wanted to share with you my first beauty box of 2014, and it is the special edition Snoe Glamourbox. When I received it, it was pretty heavy so I was super excited to open it and definitely excited to show you what's inside this box.
Note: I sincerely apologize for the change in the photo quality, my DLSR is unavailable so I used my Sony HD Digicam because I wanted to get this post out as soon as possible.

Snoe Beauty Products is an innovative cosmetics company that develops, markets and distributes innovative, premium-priced products with broad consumer appeal. Snoe differentiates itself by addressing skin imperfections through a problem-solving approach, while focusing on changing fashion trends. The company’s products address specific, everyday cosmetics needs. Although is fairly new to the industry, Snoe has a loyal and rapidly growing consumer base, and the Snoe brand is the fastest growing brand under the masstige market.

Snoe Inc. was established on February 2010 as a specialty cosmetics brand abiding to these strategies:
- Effective products with high quality ingredients
- Reasonably priced
- Wide range of products to cater everyone
- Intricate, luxury packaging with wide array of colors and scents

The company will continue to reflect the diverse trends of its consumers as a leader in the local cosmetics industry through innovative, provocative and cutting edge products.

I have heard and seen this brand before, but I was not really pulled into it because I have bad experience with local organic/mineral cosmetics and also it is still a bit pricey (at least for me). That is why when Glamourbox opened their subscription for a special edition Snoe box, I know that this is my chance to try their products.
This box has seven products inside, 6 full size and 1 sample size. Not bad for ₱595 right? Let's see the products one by one.

Hair Heroes Agent Zero Cleansing Serum (Full Size)
Full Size 250 ml - ₱599
I have heard a lot of great things about this Hair Heroes line, so I am really excited to try this one out. I havenThe name might be confusing, but it is a shampoo. Love that this is full size and I cannot believe that the price I paid for the box is equivalent to just this product.

White Beauty Bar in Organic Papaya and Lightening Licorice (Full Size)
Full Size 150 g - ₱139
These two soaps right here are both whitening soaps, but the Papaya variant claims to gently exfoliate skin and erase all signs of dark spots & blemishes while the Licorice one claims to safely brighten and nourish the skin for a younger, silkier complexion with a pinkish glow. I believe that they are intended to be used for both the face and the body. It really sounds promising but I don't think I will try these soon. I might give them away instead.

Body Ritual Recipes Whipped Body Frosting Lotion in Strawberry Smoothie (Full Size)
Full Size 150 g - ₱249
Another promising and interesting product since it has Vitamin E, papaya extracts and SPF 15 that not only claims to moisturize the skin but to protect it as well. And the smell! Oh the smell is to die for! It smells like strawberry milkshake. It feels really soft and smooth on the skin too.

Fizzy Clean Foaming Hand Sanitizer (Full Size)
Full Size 50 ml - ₱179
I always make sure to have a sanitizer or an alcohol in my bag when I go out, so I was really interested with this product plus it is a foam sanitizer so it was really interesting, unfortunately it leaves my hands sticky which makes me feel like it can attract more dirt. This is a no for me, sorry.

Bedside Beso Balm Deep Moisturizing Lip Treatment (Full Size)
Full Size 4 g - ₱249
I have heard great things about it as well, and I actually tried it earlier. I love the minty scent and feel of it on my lips, very cooling and refreshing and it was moisturizing. This is something I can alternate with my current favorite Lucas Papaw.

Poudre Extraordinaire Face Powder (Sample Size)
Full Size 35 g - ₱799
Another raved product from Snoe, which works equally or better than high end setting powders. It was also interesting to see a face/setting powder with SPF in it, so I really wanted to try this one. It comes in a small eyeshadow pot, but I love that it has a sifter.
This one smells really, really nice! It smells like vanilla chocolate, but not so overpowering. And the finish is awesome! A little goes a long, long way really. I always wanted to try this one out, but as you can see with the price tag, I try to stay away from it. Now that I have this sample size, I am definitely convinced to purchase one. Such a bummer that the packaging of this one does not indicate which shade was sent to me. Guess I have to go to a Snoe stall before I finish this up.

Overall it was a good box. I was not really over the moon with this even though they included lots of full size products. I love the shampoo, the lotion, lip balm and the powder; I am having second thoughts with the soaps and the sanitizer is just a no-go for me. Still, it is a decent box and you really get more than what you pay for.

Hope you like this unboxing post my loves! Let me know what you think in the comments below, or if you want me to do an in-depth review on any of the products mentioned above. Also, do not forget to check out Glamourbox's website if you are interested to get this box or any of their upcoming boxes.

Thank you so much for reading everyone! Next post is a local HD foundation and concealer review (I think you know which one it is). I love you all, and do not forget that you are special. Good luck!

    I see. I wasn't a fan din, kaya I decided to get this box just to see if I will come to like it. Yung Poudre Extraordinaire lang nagustuhan ko talaga, expensive naman.
