Most of you would have seen the below advertisement about the new Ponds white beauty cream launch.
I always used to wonder (and of course dream!) seeing such advertisements!
How nice it would be if just one miracle cream like this would actually let us meet our perfect match (leave the meeting, even bring them close would even do – okay I will stop sounding desperate here L)
Anyways not sure if this cream would help you meet your perfect match, but this would definitely make you go “wow” and feel happy about your skin!
Trust me! I am one among the happy users J
I have used this cream for almost 45 days now, mostly during summers and a little bit during the “rainy-monsoon-winter-like” climate in Chennai J
Pond’s White Beauty Daily Spot-less Lightening Cream SPF 20/PA++
Per Ponds – “Use this matte feel Day Cream daily for lightening skin from within, fading dark spots from the source, for a radiant, even toned and spot-less complexion. See an instantly brighter face from the first application and see spot-less radiance begin to bloom from within in just 7 days”
One interesting fact that actually won my attention was the “Unique GenWhite™ formula” that this cream has!
So what is so unique about this GenWhite™ formula?
Pond’s, with 10 years of breakthrough discoveries and after researching with over 20,000 genes, has identified a specific gene that significantly affects melanin production. This revolutionary GenWhite™ formula, adapts to your unique Skin to successfully lighten and even-out your complexion and prevent discolorations at the source.
What’s amazing about it is that the product works differently on each person. So, if there are areas on your skin that need extra help and contain more melanin, the formula concentrates on lightening and brightening those exact problem spots.
The Star Ingredients
Pond’s White Beauty contains two star ingredients that reveal spot-less radiance by working directly with your Skin.
Vitamin B3, also known as Niacinimide, deeply lightens and fades the toughest dark spots. It works with the genes to inhibit the production of melanin. Hence, helping to lighten skin and reduce dark spots from the very source.
Another groundbreaking component in the Pond’s White Beauty formula is 12-H.SA, a new patent-pending active that works with the genes and speeds up the lightening of spots.
Vitamin B3 and 12HSA – both of these ingredients work deep within and adapt to the unique genetic framework of your skin
Also other key ingredients are,
Vitamin E can neutralize free radicals generated by environmental stressors like ozone and pollution
Allantoin, found naturally in the comfrey plant, is a well known anti-inflammatory to help soothe processes that can lead to pigmentation
SPF20 and UVA PA++ – for protection from sun!
The PA system is a Japanese system to measure the protection against UVA rays, which are responsible for skin darkening. Most people are not aware that SPF only protects against UVB rays and burning while PA protects against UVA, which causes skin darkening.
Powerful optics technology
The Pond’s white beauty™ Day Cream has been shown to work on solar lentigines (also called age spots, liver spots), melasma, and post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation.
Expert Views on New Pond’s White Beauty
Okay enough of the GenWhite™ gyaan J now lets see how this product actually scored in my books.
Ponds cream, to me its not a new product. I have seen my mom using that chotu dubba of ponds snow cream (which actually looks like snow in a bottle J) when I was at school. Though I have not used it much those days I love to sniff the product now and then as it had a divine floral smell – the typical ponds smell!
When I grew up, the idea of using ponds as a regular day cream never stuck me! I always used to look up for Lakme for all my “creamy needs”.
That’s when, one day I saw my aunt using the age miracle cream (the red lid bottle) and I tried it on my skin couple of times and to be frank I actually didn’t like it L I was in my early twenties back then and I can’t actually blame the product because an age miracle cream was definitely not meant for my skin back then!!
Why I dint like it because it made my combination skin, oily and made me sweat like a pig L (okay a serious doubt – totally off the topic – does pigs actually sweat like humans? Someone throw some light pleaseJ)
Anyways recently I had tanned badly and had developed few dark spots on my face due to the scorching Chennai heat L That’s when I saw this advertisement and dreamt and googled and learnt all about this interesting GenWhite™ formula.
After using this cream for more than 45 days, here is all I have to say!
Girls please grab one of these and try it once… this cream actually worked wonders on my skin and it was like a miracle to me! After 2 weeks of usage I visibly saw my sun tan vanish and my dark spots lightened for good!
This cream when applied on cleansed skin instantly brightens and gives you a matte finish to your skin. Comes in a light pinkish color and smells amazingly good!
I dint have the usual sweat-like-a-pig problem with this cream.
A very little would suffice to cover the face and neck and a little more may give you a white caste! But that’s usual with any whitening lightening cream, so no complaints on that, just make sure you experiment a little with the quantity that you would need to cover your face and neck! That’s it you are all set to go!
The packaging is the usual leaf like design with a tight and safe pink colored screw lid and one thing I hated was the inner white lid, which was totally useless and added a lot of mess while taking the product out. after a week, I in fact threw away the inner white lid!
Seeing my results, My mom has started using it too. She is using it for 2 weeks now and she has a clean skin so I really cannot say if it worked well on her! When I asked her while writing this review, all that she told me was that she loved it and need another bottle of it! J
Okay now all was well during summers, but when I used this cream during cold, rainy weather, my skin actually felt a little stretchy, but please note – it was not dry! it was just stretchy! and the good thing is this stretchiness would disappear eventually!
So girls if you have 24/7/365 oily skin please don’t have second thoughts, this cream is definitely for you. You guys are made for each other!!
For rest of the combination/dry skin crowd please use this in summers, this will work like a miracle on your tanned skin and dark spots! for winters, well store them in a clean dry space to use it next summer J
