Project Bright Skin Week: Quench, Hydrate and Brighten with SNOE's Eau Lala

Friday, June 13, 2014

#projectbrightskinweek


I never thought that my HG skin care product would come from a local brand. I have always believed in Snoe, that's why it was their brand that I chose to collaborate with. I never felt skeptic when it came to trying out their new products (even their products that are still on test mode!) because the woman behind Snoe, Jen, is passionate about beauty and cosmetics and she knows what she wants.

I almost always never mix brands when it comes to skin care. As much as possible I try to stick to one brand so that I won't risk any contradictions or any allergic reactions. But this time, I added Snoe's Eau LaLa to my regimen.

Eau LaLa Magical Liquid Cream 50ml, PhP 899.00 | Eau LaLa Magical Liquid Powder 3g, PhP 899.00

This miracle in a 50ml bottle hydrates the skin, and boosting your already-existing skin care's benefits! A cream that is anti-fatigue, hydrating, an antioxidant, and also fades discolorations. Here is a write up about this product according to their website:
"Quench your skin back to vitality with Eau La La Magical Liquid Cream. This unique hydrating cream transforms into liquid and is quickly absorbed by the skin to brighten, revitalize, and fade discolorations or spots. Safe for all skin types, this antioxidant-rich booster also safeguards against environmental damagers and free radicals, and builds a stronger network of collagen for younger- looking skin!"
Among its active ingredients include Chia Seed Extract, which contains high concentrations of alpha linolenic acid, which helps in effective absorption of moisturization by the skin. This wonder extract also promotes skin elasticity. Prune Extract is a strong antioxidant superfood that is rich in hydroxycinnamic acids and anthocyanins that protect the skin against free radicals that effect the texture of the skin. It ads suppleness to the skin because of its anti-aging and moisturizing benefits!

The box contains all these information so you can read about it before you purchase. I love packaging that has a lot of information on their packaging so you have information on what you are buying.
The first time I used this product, I thought it might be too heavy to use under makeup, but after using it for a few days, I noticed that the high moisture I was feeling was way deep under my skin and does not just sit on the surface of the skin. The surface of the skin feels supple and smooth, looks kind of matte actually! But the skin feels wet.

It's truly amazing. It boosted the effects of my other skin care products too. My skin is brighter, smoother, and more hydrated.
The smell of this product is just addicting. I can't pin-point the smell exactly, it just smells Oh-So-Delicious! I almost wanted to taste it. Ha!
What I love about Snoe's packaging is that they include the information both on the box and on the product itself. They provide you with as much information as they which how it should be.
It's an easy pump bottle that  dispenses the right amount of product with each pump so you don't end up with too much. I start with a single pump, and I pump half more to cover the other areas that still feel dry to me.

In less than a minute, the product is absorbed by the skin, ready for your following skin care. You can use this both for the day and the evening.
A single pump is enough to cover your entire face. Maybe another half pump will be enough for your neck.
You can see that it sets matte, but the feeling is wet! You think that you have wet skin but what you are feeling is actually the hydration that goes beyond the surface of the skin.
Now let's move on with the powder. You can use the powder the same way as you would with the cream, but I like bringing this with me in my purse to freshen up my makeup. I don't know about you, but after about 4 hours of wearing my makeup, I feel icky and I can't wait to go home and wash my face. But a light dusting of this magical powder on your makeup will instantly freshen your makeup look and will go passed beyond the makeup and quench the thirst of your skin!
When you brush this powder on your face, it turns into liquid! I mean, literally, it turns into liquid and gets absorbed by the skin fast, and dries matte. I didn't believe it at first but after trying it, I am just stupefied.

I love using this on my brides now who opt for retouch before the reception. They all say the same thing: they feel so refreshed and their skin feels like they splashed cold water on their face.
Here's a photo of me using the cream as a base, and the powder as a retouch powder. I took this photo after wearing my makeup the whole day! Look how fresh my skin looks.

  2. The products sound wonderful. Would you recommend this for oily-skinned girls?

    1. Absolutely! If you have oily skin, the more you should hydrate your skin. Because if you keep drying out your skin using mattifying or oil controlling products, your skin thinks it is dehydrated so all the more you produce oil. So keep on hydrating! ♥

  3. Snoe is my most favorite brand. Their products are really effective and I love the way how it makes my skin smooth and soft. I am planning to buy the Eau LaLa Magical Liquid Cream. Can I ask if it has a whitening effect?

    Xoxo,
    Nica ♥

    1. No, it doesn't just whiten the skin which makes the skin look unnaturally white, but it brightens the complexion which makes your skin look glowing :)
