Product Review: Snoe White Lightening Licorice Beauty Bar

Friday, February 22, 2013

     If there's one thing in my bath staple that I can't live without now, that would probably bath soaps. Not one but two variants of beauty bars to be exact. Obviously I'm hooked with organic soaps and when I say organic soap, without a doubt Snoe white is the brand that I trust. Again, I'm using these beauty bars for more than a year now. I just mix and match each variant depending on my skin needs. Using these soaps doesn't mean my skin is perfect and flawless. I have fair skin to begin with and having a fair skin should not be coined as flawless. Yes, my skin tone is fair to light (I'm NC 15-20) but my skin is very sensitive with uneven tone, blemishes and freckles. So before you say that I'm lucky to have this complexion, I'm telling you that I'm not. I also have skin care problems that I mentioned above and as years pass by my skin tends to become more and more sensitive.

     Since my problem is to even out my skin tone and lighten dark spots, I need a soap that is made for sensitive skin. Do you love reading product labels? If you do, then I guess you already know that using whitening soap can make your skin very sensitive. That's why some of the trusted brands in the market include warning labels/precaution in using the soap. I noticed that most whitening soaps in the market today contain harsh ingredients that's a no-no for sensitive skin. If you have sensitive skin and you want to lighten blemishes and dark spots, Snoe white Lightening Licorice beauty bar is the soap that I would recommend to address those problems.

What I like:
  • It's organic!
  • Cute and Fancy packaging.
  • Doesn't melt fast.
  • There's a little pinkish glow on my arms and legs. My skin is pale white but after using this soap for more than a month it's now a little pinkish white.
  • Easily accessible~ Cinderella Sm Fairview carries Snoe products now!!! Yay :D
  • Affordable.
  • Has manufacturing and expiry date printed on packaging.
What I don't like:
  • I can't figure out the smell. It's not overpowering but I can't tolerate it. The least appealing soap for me when it comes to the scent.
  • Since this is a gentle in terms of whitening, you'll not see immediate results.
Will I repurchase? Maybe YES- if my skin becomes very sensitive and needs to rest. Maybe NO- if I want to lighten dark spots and uneven skin tone intensively. 

     I give this soap a 4/5 rating. Use the soap as instructed. Always use sunblock with spf 30 or higher to protect your skin from the sun. Yay! This is the 6th Snoe White soap that I've tried to date. Among the 5 variants of Snoe:Vitamin C Rich CalamansiOrganic Green Papaya, The Special Black Bleaching Bar, Special Kojic and Glutathione and Organic Papaya Beauty Bar, this is the mildest that I've tried on my body. Didn't use this on my face because I broke out with licorice soap before from another brand. There's 10 Snoe white beauty bars to choose from so now I'm down to only 4. What variant do you want me to try next? 

     What SNOE variant combo do you think will suit your skin needs? Share away dearies :)

Good Times!~


  1. For skin pigmentation, my former boss swears by snail cream for sensitive skin with pigmentation and blemishes. Pareho kasi kayo na fair with some freckles and it lightened hers daw talaga. It has anti-aging narin kasi. High spf everyday helps to some extent also ;) oh diba retired na nga ako from tm push parin ng push! hahaha! :)

  2. @Angel- hello, thanks for the reco. I'm interested nga din sa Snail cream na yan. I'll let you know if I'm using it na. ok lang noh, kasi effective naman talaga, dami ko na din narinig and nabasa na reviews :)

  3. Hi,

    I have sensitive skin too and recently tried Snoe Beauty's Licorice soap. I got mild rashes and my already triggered dermatitis flared up. I intended to use the said soap to lessen the inflammation (as it claims to have antiinflammatory properties) but it seems to worsen it. Soap-free cleanser is still the way to go if skin is extremely sensitive.

  4. @Anonymous- thank you for sharing your experience with the soap. I'm so sorry if the soap didn't worked for you. Maybe there's an ingredient that triggered your acne. Even though this is a natural product some individuals are allergic to it. Yes, better stick to gentle cleansers dear.


Thank you for visiting my blog!~ I would love to hear your thoughts :)
Your comments are always welcome and appreciated :)

Good Times!~
