REVIEW: Pond's Pearl Cleansing Gel

Hello, blogging world! This is gonna be my time to make up for the lack of new posts this past couple of weeks. As usual, I'm kinda busy with everyday shoot and practice. I was just able to interpose it in between my workloads for the day since there was this fumigation at school and we were directed to go home early.

Anyway, after more or less two weeks ago since I bought my tube of Pond's Pearl Cleansing Gel, I think it's now the right time to share with you, guys, my experience upon using this product. Come and join me as I muse about it!

I bought mine during my occasional 'exploration' at Watsons. I wasn't supposed to buy this but it was offered at a discounted price (50% off). This impulsive buyer inside me just won't let this promo slip away without buying one! So I got it for only 80PHP. I've been long wanting (though a bit wary) to try this and I guess this is just the perfect time.

Should I say more about Pond's? We all know that Pond's is one of the country's leading skin care brand that caters to every Filipina's type of skin. Their products claim to give every girl the true fairness they deserve. Since I don't think that's true, I've been wary of trying out new products from their skin care line since I've been having real nightmares while I use one. Nonetheless, this latest innovation from Pond's looks promising and I think I should give this one a speculative try. Well, I'm glad I did.

If you read my previous reviews about other products of Pond's such as the Pond's White Beauty Translucent Pinkish White Glow Day Creams (Read the review here), you'll definitely conclude that it's one of the brands of skin care products that I really hate the most. It is due to the fact that they did cause me breakouts! Had Pond's Pearl Cleansing Gel change my perspective? Scroll down, ladies. ;)

The product comes in a squeeze-type tube, just like the other Pond's products. It's easier though to have it this way since I don't need to frequently tap the tube to squeeze out the content, they would just flow effortlessly as you open. On the contrary, the opening lid is hard to open/close that you really need to pull/push hard while using.

The product doesn't lather much but you can still guarantee that your pores are being cleared off of any dirt and dust that has accumulated on your face the whole day. It is highly moisturizing, unlike other Pond's Facial Wash, Foams, Scrubs which tend to leave your skin dry, although the product might cause some skin tightening. Nonetheless, after use, you will notice that your visage seem to look hydrated and thoroughly cleansed.

The content is transparent and, of course, gel-like in consistency like those hair styling gels although not as thick. In fact, I found the formula is quite runny. The color of the tube somehow outmaneuvered me, thinking that the product is formulated and colored originally in pink when actually the gel is transparent. For me, this is one thing I hate about it. I bought it also because I thought it's really in pink!

See the amount of gel in my hand? That's the amount I lather on my face every morning and night. I believe the effects can be seen faster if you use it generously enough (what!?). Anyway, it doesn't bother me how much I should use as the formula doesn't cause me breakouts unlike other Pond's products. On the other hand, it won't also work in preventing, treating or even alleviating my suffering due to pimple problems. I cryyyyy. However, it's perfect to bring the tube during your working days to freshen up a bit, if, in anyway, you decided to wash your face and just wanted an instant relief especially this very humid season.

See the bubbles? Hahaha, aren't they cute? It's so nice and clever of Pond's to think of it. Probably it is because the product is infused with Pearl Essence and Oxygenated Gel Formula so the texture should justify it. The smell is fine with me, smells like rose, I think? Although, some might find the smell somewhat overpowering.

The Pond's Pearl Cleansing Gel, for me, is suitable and is best for dry and sensitive skin. One thing I like about it is even though the product doesn't lather much even when ample amount is used, you can still feel that your face is fresher and clearer afterwards. The effect is consistent unlike other products which give you the best result only during your first use.

The product claims to make the skin appear fairer and fresher. Again, it is infused with Pearl Essence, known to give glowing, fair skin and Oxygenated gel formula which refreshes, cleanses, removes dirt and excess oil from deep down and leaves skin so soft. All of the above claims are true except for the whitening part. As much as I wanted this product to lighten my skin, it just won't. Maybe because I still need to use it for a longer period of time to notice any significant lightening on my face.

If you are very particular to the ingredients of the product you are using, here are some of the ingredients of the product which might be harmful: Sodium Laureth Sulfate, Tetrasodium EDTA and Cocamide MEA.


a. CLEANSE with Pond’s Pearl Cleansing Gel for whiter and fresher skin
b. MOISTURIZE with Pond’s Dewy Rose Gel for softer and smoother skin
c. FINISH with Pond’s Flawless White BB + Cream for makeup + skin care in one


Yes. Most especially to those who have sensitive and dry skin. But not much to acne-prone skin. If you need something to treat your pimples/acne faster, go for astringents. They work much better. All in all, I think Pond's Pearl Cleansing Gel is worth a try! And let me say it, this is, by far, the only product of Pond's that I think I would repurchase.

  1. I'm jealous because as much as I would want to include Pond's in my skin care routine, I just can't. It causes breakout so hindi ko hiyang.

    1. Awww. My skin skin isn't fond of Pond's din eh. I just happened to drop by Watsons, found this on sale so I bought it. Actually, I was surprised that it worked for me and there's no major breakouts yet. :)
