REVIEW: Snoe Hair Heroes and lip products

"Your hair is your crowning glory." I regret to say I don't find myself believing that entirely because my hair is far from anything that would deserve a crown. Sadly I wasn't gifted with commercial worthy locks, but hey, isn't it great news that we can all "work on" growing such?

Snoe says: Lavish your hair with Snoe's revolutionary 5-in-one intense Argan Oil Moroccan Liquid Gold. This cleansing conditioner replaces shampoo, conditioner, deep conditioner, de-tangler, leave-on conditioner and even shaving cream. For all hair types, 5-in-one is formulated to add moisture without weighing hair down. (photos below from Dec 2011 tea party, don't you just adore how the bottles stand out against the light? It's like looking at a super hero emerge from the darkness saying, there's hope for every hair type!)

It effectively cleanses and hydrates hair without stripping or robbing it of its natural nutrients and oils. It has astonishing healing, conditioning and anti-aging properties to keep your hair nourished and revitalized, to keep you looking beautiful,. Change the way you clean your hair!

1. For cleansing - Hair Heroes Cleansing Conditioner is best for those who are into quick showers. If you are also a travelling kind, then you might want to transfer some of this product on your modest toiletry travel-friendly bottle because Hair Heroes Cleansing Conditioner would give you the luxury of skipping shampoo altogether. I know how erratic the idea is especially for us Filipinos who grew up in a culture that welcomes three showers in a day, but contrary to what I expected, even without shampoo, my hair didn't feel greasy or dirty at all. It was just fresh softness all day round.

2. Deep Conditioning Hair Treatment - On the other hand, if you like lingering with your bath buddies like how I de-stressify at night, you might want to leave Hair Heroes cleansing conditioner a bit longer than usual to allow it to deeply nourish your strands. It works as a deep hair conditioning treatment thanks to the moisture-packed ingredients list (stated above). Argan oil which was coined as "liquid gold" is definitely a prized possession among your toiletries as it is so great for the hair and skin (see number 5), but really so very great for the hair! Let your hair enjoy some pampering by leaving the Hair Heroes Cleansing Conditioner to sit for approximately 20 minutes. If you may, do massage it on your scalp and gently rub it on your hair from root to tip so you get the most of your do-it-yourself  treatment.

3. Leave on Conditioner - If you want to de-frizz any time, you might want to transfer a little bit of Hair Heroes Cleansing Conditioner on a bottle or tub that would perfectly fit inside your kikay kit. Hair Heroes works as a great leave-on conditioner because it not only removes frizz, it also de-tangles (see number 6), and it also cleanses your hair as you go (see number 7). Before re-touching your crowning glory to avoid that mahangin ba sa labas look, rub a minimal amount of Hair Heroes from root to tip. Do not rub as you would to warm your palms as that may damage your locks. Just enjoy the feel of your going smooth hair by following a root to tip direction.

4. De-tangler - You just showered and you have your trusted wide tooth comb with you yet you still can't get through those stubborn buhol-buhol! Ah, trust me, story of my life! When you have curly hair and you don't really have a habit of combing/brushing, you will get a lot of tangled up lumps by the time you decide to comb your hair. Don't force it and pull hard. You would cause your hair to break! Get a little bit of Hair Heroes Cleansing Conditioner and soothe that troubled area. The added glide would help you rid your hair of those tangled lumps.

5. Shaving Cream - If you want smooth legs (of course you do), then you might want to try shaving those unwanted hair off. Use Hair Heroes Cleansing Conditioner to assist your razor in achieving that close shave. Trust me, you can't take a shaving aid for granted else you'd end up with nicks and worse, scars to remind you of your neglectful habit (I did, before huhu). I know Hair Heroes is a hair range but it's also good for the skin because yes, Argan oil is great for the skin too so you end up having smooth close-shaved skin to flaunt.

6. "Dry" Shampoo alternative - I have recently been fascinated by racks of dry shampoo I saw at the supermarket one fine day. I couldn't bring myself to try them though because I have huge hair and I don't want just sweet-smelling hair, I want them clean! I shower not to smell good (although of course I do shower for that purpose); but I shower to be clean--so no, I'm not a fan of dry shampoo. I just don't think it makes the cut. But Hair Heroes Cleansing Conditioner works as a great "dry shampoo alternative" because it lets you skip the shower (if you really have to...) and still be assured that you crowning glory isn't weighed down by the sebum of last night's party! :)

7. Hair Sanitizer - If you have been reading my blog for a while then you know how much I love make-up brushes! This love made me think, hm, why isn't there a hair cleanser similar to brush cleanser (sprays). Then when I saw Hair Heroes Cleansing Conditioner, it was like a eureka moment. It does pretty much the same thing as those make-up brush cleansers do. It sanitizes your hair for another go. Although this is a similar function as number 6, I figured because it's a different analogy I should write it separately. Think about it, ever had that horrible experience of having gum on your hair? LOL Okay let's not go that far. Every had that horrible experience of having icing on your hair (what fun party!), trust me. It (your hair) would get extremely sticky, now you don't have to worry. Hair Heroes can save your day!

-proudly Pinoy
-cute packaging, very catchy
-smells yummy! If you have a sweet tooth you would like Hair Heroes' fragrance
-effective, results are immediate
-great for those with dry hair
-great for those who color their hair
-great for those with treated hair
-great for those with long hair, (long hair that get tangled up easy!)
-sulfate-free (trust me, you should go for sulfate-free hair care stat if you want to save/preserve your crowning glory)

-still partially foreign (Argan Oil will never ever be produced in the Philippines so although this is a proudly Pinoy product, it would still somewhat be alien)
-pump was difficult to use. I hate conditioners that come in pump bottles simply because I "drink" conditioners. I use a lot and am more comfortable with squeezing a lot of product that pumping (and waiting) for a lot to come out.
-slightly expensive Php 499 for a 200ml bottle; but in comparison with other Argan oil products, this is affordable!

So instead of having my hair up, this 2012 I can relax and just let my hair down. It's not perfect, but it's my imperfections that make me beautiful! My imperfections and how I embrace these things that make me err, makes me great! :)

I have to color soon! But trust me, my hair has never been this good, thanks to sulfate-free hair care like Hair Heroes!

Told you it;s not perfect! haha But I'm happy. I noticed the length of my hair speaks for my emotional health (LOL). Whenever I'm sad, my hair is short (extremely short) but when I'm just okay with life, I wear 'em long. Cheers to uhm 2 yrs of long hair? :)

I'm wearing the following products: Beso Balm as a lipstick base. It's a bit oily but I love the minty feel it leaves behind. Beso Balm is another innovative product from Snoe Beauty. It's not just a lip balm. It's mouthwash on a stick. :)

Snoe Hard Candy on the other hand is your key"chain" to beautiful lips. I am wearing Hard Candy in Bubblegum. Oh my gosh, it's such a great bubblegum pink color! I love the palette that comes with this handy-dandy keychain loot. If you're like me who carries loooots of lipstick product on a daily basis, you can understand fully how it's such a relief to find a lip product that makes our lip addiction a bit more compact and travel-friendly. :) The only thing I don't like about Hard Candy (2 things actually): I'm not a fan of any product that would involve dipping my finger on it and it has a tendency of drying out the lips. I thought it's like a moisture lipstick/glossy type but I later on found out it has a slightly matte/dry finish especially as the hours pass. My lips are very sensitive and I end up chapping with Hard Candy... as resolution, if you experience the same, you might want to moisturize your lips ever so often with a similarly colored lip balm, a colorless gloss (especially if you want a little bit of shine) or best, do what I did! I used...

I used Glam Jam in Blush! Wow, this lip and cheek tint worked so perfectly well with Bubblegum of Hard Candy (check out how pink my lips were in the photo)! Read about my Glam Jam review <- there.

Don't forget. Let you hair down this year, relax and face life naturally... but don't forget, you can always improve those natural features with the help of nature's bounties and a little bit of color here and there. :)

I also used PureDerm Glitter-effect BB Balm for my face, San San Rosy Blush Cheek Blusher for my cheeks, Maybelline Cat's Eye Mascara, Nyx Jumbo liner in Milk, Nyx Trio eyeshadow (TS15 Aloha/Mink Brown/Deep Bronze), ELF eyeliner in black, and my favorite The Face Shop brow auto-liner.

Know more about Snoe here. Products were from the tea party held last year! The Hair Heroes was an extra gift the ladies behind Snoe gave me at our little after-party. :)

Since we broke down the ingredients of Hair Heroes, I figures it's perfect timing to share this info-graphic provided by my friends from EchoMarket sustainable farms. Read more about sustainable lifestyle choices over here.

  1. Love the lip color Mae! Your lips are gorgeous! :)

  2. Hair Heroes worked wonderfully for my wavy hair too. My hair is far from perfect, but I love how soft and fragrant my hair was afterwards. And wow, Glam Jam in Blush looked so red and pretty! :D

  3. Wow you got all of those! Great reviews, very informative ^^ love the lip colours - very cute on you!

  4. I've never actually heard of this brand before, but I love how they have packaged this, it's so cute! Thanks for this review, it's very detailed!

  5. Bubblegum look sooo good on you! And I love how natural the cheek color is, thanks to the Glam Jam tint! :D

  6. haha i like how i recently did a guest post on a comic book theme, and here you are featuring a product that has comic book packaging! :D that seems like a cool product. i really want to try argan oil for my hair, because i heard it works wonders! oh, i really love how you did your liner in the picture btw! and that blush looks sooo interesting. really looks like jam!

  7. Hair Heroes sounds like a great product! I love how it is multifunctional - you really save a lot of money that way because you don't have to buy as many products. I've heard a lot of things about argan oil and its benefits for the hair and skin, but I never knew it could be used to cleanse as well - I always thought it was more for moisturizing and conditioning. It's too bad this isn't available in the US because I would have loved to try it. Thank you for such a detailed review! :)

  8. ooo, that sounds totally awesome. i can'r wait till my hair grows out!!!


  9. The hair products look really great, as does your hair! xo

  10. yey! i used the same product too but I only used it as a cleansing conditioner! Thanks for showing me 5 more ways on how to use it! I love the smell of SNOE's sunblock lotion and their clay mask! =)

  11. I love this product! i used this as cleansing conditioner but thanks to you, i know 5 more ways on how to use it! i want to try that hardcandy lip-palette but it looks too drying. I certainly love their sunblock lotion and clay mask! I can't say the same for GlamJam in Scarlet..
