REVIEW: Pond's White Beauty Translucent Pinkish White Glow Day Creams

As promised on my Haul + Review: Best Face Creams in The Philippines post, I am now ready to share a review about Pond's White Beauty Pinkish White Glow and the one which targets acne-prone skin. It is my first time to be neither a pro or a con upon reviewing the said products as there are as many positive as there are negative things that I experienced during my two-week testing period.

First, lemme show you the products that I am talking about. I know this isn't new to you as Pond's is very well-known for its innovative products that works well for most Asian women. Nonetheless, I want to share with you, girls, my experience while using these products.

Pond's White Beauty Translucent Pinkish White Glow; PHP10

Pond's White Beauty Translucent Pinkish White Glow For Acne-Prone Skin (new packaging): PHP12.50

So yeah, these are the first products on my to-use facial creams since...well, I don't really know. It's just that I've heard lots of good as well as bad reviews about it. I actually expected a lot from it since it's one of the most famous skin care brand in the Philippines. Yet, their products just won't work for me the way I expected them to.

What I mean is that, on the very first night of using the product, upon waking up, I've noticed that small bumps/breakouts already developed (even while I use the one for acne-prone skin). I never stopped using it the same time since my friend said that, "Ganyan talaga yan sa una, magkaka-pimples ka muna" and yeah, I was persuaded to continue using the product until I can't help it. It's been months since I developed so many tiny bumps on my face and they all came back just because I've used Pond's. So there's no choice but to stop. Geez, I had to stop. Good thing, I just bought sachets or I'll end up regretting big time.

Another thing I hate about it is that, it's hard to blend! Plus the fact that you can't put on some foundation or bb creams on top of it because you'll end up having white spots on your face!

Okay...okay...maybe you're going to say "Aren't there some good points?"

One good thing I like about it is the powdery finish. My face is too oily--too oily that you can fry some eggs on top of it. But while using the product, it takes an hour or two before I notice my face gets shiny because of oil buildup. But the cream feels heavy on my face and it easily gets all sweaty especially in this humid season.

Another good thing is that after using and million times of blending and massaging the mousse-like consistency/formula on my skin, my face feels lighter, fresher, and brighter. However, during the two-weeks use, I didn't notice any spots lightening effect on my face. It just wouldn't show any significant results for it must be use continuously for months. I just hate that it caused me breakouts! Otherwise, this product will be my favorite.
