I have been using this for really long (donno how long!) & emptied as well now. So thought of reviewing it now before it fades out of my memory.
Price: INR 175 for 100 g.
It comes in the traditional Ponds packaging – white tube and girly pink screw cap. Convenient, hygienic and travel-friendly, robust packaging.
See the pic below for the list of ingredients.
What the product claims:
Enriched with VAO-B3 complex, this foaming cleanser washes away dirt, oil & impurities that cause dullness, revealing bright, sparkling clean skin underneath.
The way I see it:
Well.. let me tell you what this VAO-B3 complex is first. It stands for Vitamin E – Allantoin – Optics powered Vitamin B3.
All the above three ingredients are know for their moisturising properties. Thus there is no doubt that this face wash leaves the skin moisturized & not stretchy or dry after each wash.
This was a gift from my hubby when we went shopping soon after marriage – he picked this face wash & Ponds Flawless White Face Masks for me (which I shall review later..).
So this extra special facial foam has some other special characteristics too. It leaves the skin super clean, removes makeup to a great extent, does not leave the skin dry and also gives an immediate white glow on the face.
The texture is creamy and a pepper-sized quantity is good enough for both face and neck – thus a little goes a long way. I have been using this along with couple of other face washes so took up almost a year to get this finished!
The smell is that of the traditional Ponds moisturizer’s which is very soothing. But the whitening glow is short-lived for say just an hour.
Since I don’t look for whitening effect from any product, I was not disappointed.
The ‘Yes’ factors:
- Does not leave skin dry or stretched
- Creamy and produces good lather
- Value for money
- Immediate white glow on the face
- Does not breakout
- Would be suitable for all skin types
- Does not remove eye makeup thoroughly
- One can get bored of it by using in the long run
- Whitening effect is short-lived
