I am sure you have seen the ads of new face wash from Pond’s everywhere.On my recent trip to the market,found this lying on the shelf with big banners.Pond’s sure does know how to market and promote their brands.I picked it out of curiosity,mostly because of the whole “pearl” thing.So well today I will be reviewing a new launch: Pond’s White Beauty Pearl Cleansing Gel.Do you think its worth hype?Well then read along to find out more about it.
My Skin Type:
Oily and acne prone skin.
Water, Sodium Laureth Sulfate, Glycerin, Acrylates Copolymer, Cocoamidopropyl Betaine, Cocoamide MEA, Sodium Hydroxide, Sodium Chloride, Benzophenone-4, BHT, Niacinamide, Methylchloroisothiazolinone, Methylisothizolinone, Tetra Sodium EDTA, PPG-9, Polysorbate 20, Hydrolyzed Pearl, Perfume, Linalool, Butylphenyl Methylpropional, Hexyl Cinnamal, Citronellol, Amyl Cinnamal, Alpha-Isomethyl Ionone, CI 17200.

Product Description & Swatches:
1)It is a gel based face wash which cleanses well.
2)It contains Niacinamide(Vitamin B).
3)It is suitable for normal skin.
4)Affordable & Easily available.
1)It does have mildly/moderately comedogenic ingredients so not suitable for oily-acne prone skin.
2)The fragrance,my god it is unbearable.I literally got a headache!
3)Whitening/Fairness-So NOT true!!
4)It contains SLS,BHT.
5)It makes skin dry post cleansing.
6)Highly doubtful if it really contains pearls at this price!
Directions for use:
Apply cleanser on face and massage it lightly.Rinse off with water.
The only reason I bought this face wash because of the hoopla around “pearl and oxy-glo” thing and I was hoping it would be good.Previously I have tried a bunch of other Pond’s face washes and this one too didn’t meet my expectations.Though it does a job of cleanser,what really really bothers me is the fragrance.It is so overpowering and even after you wash,the smell lingers around on your face and hands for a few minutes.It also makes my skin stretchy which is not something you want for the upcoming monsoons.It is a very very average cleanser,there is nothing special about it.Fairness claims are ridiculous as their “pearls essence” claims.At this price,I will gladly recommend Himalaya face washes then this particular face wash.Definitely not impressed with the face wash and I will not be repurchasing it either.
