Quickie: Snoe Beauty’s Let it B with WasaB BB Cream

I didn’t really need another face base, let alone two! But let me explain. It all started with soap.

My sister wanted me to get her some soap from Snoe Beauty, but I am such a hermit that I ended up buying it online, which is dangerous territory for someone like me because I end up buying other things. Anyway, long story short, I got curious about Let it B with WasaB, a BB Cream.

Let it B with WasaB anti-oxidant BB Cream fortified with Wasabi Extract contains a potent mixture of Calcium, Vitamin C, Potassium, Antimicrobial properties and more! It can promote oxygenation of cellular tissues as well as strengthen your skin’s defenses against free radical damage. Tested at SPF 30++.

I wanted to try other variants, but this was the cheapest one I was interested in at Php 499. The reason why I have two is because they accidentally sent me the wrong shade (Warm Honey instead of Perfect Beige) and the customer service was awesome because I got it the day after I emailed (my Twitter mention was igknorred, though).

Swatches, L-R: Snoe Beauty Let it B with WasaB in Perfect Beige (top: unblended, bottom: blended), and Snoe Beauty Let it B with WasaB in Warm Honey (top: unblended, bottom: blended)

I kind of like the darker shade a teeny bit better, though. I get scared of whiteness on my face, lol.

I’m not an expert, but the consistency seems to be closer to “real” Asian BB Creams, which is on the thicker side. It feels like a smooth paste, especially the lighter shade, Perfect Beige. Because of that, it feels a little bit harder to blend out for me, I don’t use it everyday. It could be a “just in my head” type of thing, but I don’t reach for this as much.

It has a pleasant smell and hasn’t broken me out. Despite its thick consistency, I find that sits pretty well on the face, though, and provides a good base. I have to set it with powder; otherwise, I get all shiny.

The dispenser was so hard to work with (again, could be the consistency), especially at first! I think I pressed it like at least seventy times, and that’s not an exaggeration, which is saying something because you know me! I like hyberboles.

I used it for this tutorial. I also used it for the L’Oreal event here and here.

All in all, I like this product, but I am not in love with it for some reason. I think it’s worth the try, though, especially at the price point. The quality is there—don’t get me wrong—but I don’t know if this is what I am looking for at the moment, if we are talking about the combination of ease of use + aesthetics here. I think the alleged benefits are also quite good.

  1. My complaint about Snoe stuff is that they tend to be heavy-handed with the fragrance. I still can’t forget that blasted sunblock I bought.

    • True! This was pretty heavily-scented. Ack I don’t know, even the texture is heavy. I like it when it’s on, but I don’t like the application process.

    It looks so white on your hand but that really looks nice on! Quite glowy and fresh. xx
