PRODUCT REVIEW: POND'S FLAWLESS WHITE BB CREAM
I am not a fan of BB Creams because I usually use liquid foundations on daily basis because of the coverage. However, to keep my skin healthy, I need to let it rest by using BB creams or CC creams alternately and I usually use it on my night shifts at work. So I still use BB or CC creams and I am still eager to try different brands.
I tried a lot of BB creams already and so far I realized that most of the time my skin readily accepts it because I heard that there are people that usually develops breakouts whenever they use BB creams.
The Pond's recommends to use it after using the Pond's White Beauty Pearl Cleansing Gel (Review here.) and Pond's Dewy Rose Gel (Review here.).
Let me now share with you my experience with this new Pond's Flawless White BB Cream that I got from Sample Room event last March 2015. (For the post of the event, go to the link here.)
Type: Flawless White BB Cream
Shade: Beige (Also available in Light) The shade Beige is correct for my skin tone, I am a MAC NC 20 to 25 user.
Product Description: Helps provide effortless natural bare-faced look. With instant natural coverage and lightens from within.
> The BB Cream contains SPF 30 PA++
> Provides both skin care and makeup function as it lightens skin from within and at the same time gives coverage for a more flawless look
> Contains special ingredient, GenActiv namely Niacinamide and 12HSA known to regulte genes that controls melanin production
> Non sticky so I did not need to put any powder after application
> Absorbed by the skin quickly
> My skin is usually dry so I did not encounter any oiliness effect of the BB cream after a few hours'
> Brightens my skin, my dark color under eyes lightened too (Refer to my photo below)
> The shade beige fits me and I am MAC NC20-25 user
> I did not encounter a problem regarding skin breakouts
> It feels light on skin
> Comes in two shades only, Light and Beige (It may not work to people with darker skin tone as it may appear very white, I suggest you try it out first on samples at their stalls before purchasing)
> Coverage is light to medium (But I always expect it from BB or CC creams), it can brighten my skin and make it look flawless but dark spots and scars are still visible
> It does not last long, I need to retouch after at least 4 hours
My Face without and with Pond;s BB Cream
Buy again? 95% (I am happy with my experience but as you know, I am always on my adventure to try out more BB creams. I will definitely re-purchase though.)
Overall Rating: 4/5
Price: I got it free from the Sample Room event that I attended but I it costs around 349php. Really affordable, right?
Where to buy? Any Pond's Stall.
I hope my review helped you my readers! Have a good day!
