Snoe HyperFunction Foundation + Serum | A Product Review
Happy Sunday to you all, loves! It's been a whirlwind of events this week. But I'm determined to get back on the grind now that things are going well and on to being great for the next few days. Say hello to yet another Foundation review. As you all know, I am always drawn to new and exciting foundation especially when they have intriguing ingredients and packaging.
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. Infused with:
Escargot - Repairs damaged skin cells, boost production of collagen and elastin, anti bacterial, scar repair, anti-acne, anti inflammatory
Broccoli - Contains phytochemicals that will help reduce inflammation, and detoxify your skin. It contains twice the vitamin C of a lemon that will whiten and also acts as a antioxidant energy agent. It contains natural lactic, malic and citric acid and contains a high level of vitamin K, which will improve skin elasticity and improve under eye circles.
Acai - Most powerful and nutritious fruit in the world. Contains highest level of antioxidants, higher than any fruit.
Directions: Apply directly on skin or use a Stippling or Foundation brush. For perfect and matte application set with any Snoe finishing powder.
Snoe in less than a year have expanded their cosmetic line, one of which is the much-awaited Snoe HyperFunction Foundation and Serum. As always, leave it to the busy brain of Jen Gerodiaz-Diaz to create multi-function products, this one doubles as makeup and skin care. All with its unique and updated ingredients.
Skin care wise, HyperFunction Foundation + Serum (Php1,199.00) provides good amount of anti-oxidants that improves skin texture. Thanks to escargot, made popular by Korean skin care line, the slime that helps mortorize snails apparently contains skin collagen that we all know is good for aging skin.
I would never have imagined that I would ever slather anything on my skin that contains brocoli given that I hate the vegetable with a vengance. But alas! I surprise myself. Despite this psychological phobia to veggies, I can't help to appreciate the help it does to the body and I'm glad I get to take advantage of it without having to eat it!
Acai to be honest, I have never even eaten and I don't think I've seen it, too! Have you? Acai as you all know is a popular skin care ingredient and known to be a miracle fruit that not only nourishes the skin but great at revitalizing the body, too.
Add that this has SPF, too! Pretty decent protection at 20.
Here's the before and after photos as usual.
Impressive results right? Albeit a bit too light on my skin, Ivory Creme settles down nicely as I am acidic. I got Golden Caramel, too, as it works well for the summer skin tone.
Staying power isn't that impressive though. Oilies creeped up only an hour or two from application. Women with dry skin will definitely love this though, as it provides moisture and dewiness that will make your skin glow. As for us with skin that shine, Edward pales in comparison, well, we just need a good pressed powder. I used Snoe Poudre with Rare Acai Berry and it does perform well on controlling the oilies.
I can't exactly decide whether I love-love this foundation, though. It has a lot of good in it. It doesn't break me out. But I think I will take a pass on this the next time and choose a more suiting one for my skin.
But I do love the packaging, though. It's so chic! Oh! And make sure that your pump works. Mine is a bit wonky. A glitch I think and not something everyone should worry about. But I'm giving you a head's up anyway. :)
Hoping that Snoe create a matte version to of this, expand the shade range and toss out the other ones... then I would probably get another tube.
'Til then, well, there are other Snoe products that I think are worth a try. :)
