PRODUCT REVIEW: Pond’s Flawless White BB Cream

P1170263-001

Initial review: I was quite impressed with the smooth and light formulation. It went on really well on my skin and had a smooth finish. The smell is pleasant but not overpowering.

How did it work with other products? It blended really well with my Ellana mineral powder. I did notice that I tend to get oily at noon time so the product slides off or looks cakey. Just retouch with a small amount on the spots that really need it.

The downside: PIMPLE BREAKOUT. I thought I found my new favorite BB cream but after five days, I started getting pimples! I initially blamed stress and PMS for the breakouts but I’ve been sleeping early, exercising regularly and eating healthy. So off I went to my dermatologist and she recommended Epiduo to dry out the pimples. Still, I observed that new pimples (that were huge and painful) would appear even after my period. Prior to using the product, I’ve never had a breakout. Heck even as a commuting college student, I’d just get a pimple or two during finals season but never a breakout like this.

THE VERDICT

Coverage ♥♥♥

Formulation ♥♥♥

Scent ♥♥♥♥

Staying Power ♥♥♥

The product clearly, isn’t a good match for my skin. I’m not saying it won’t work for you. This is why I really support product sampling. I’ve been partners with Sample Room for a few years now and I love that they continuously bring in new products for members to try (in sample or sometimes in full sizes) before buying and committing to a product. What may work for some people may not necessarily work for you. You have to factor in your skin type, your activities and even certain ingredients you’re allergic to.
