Review : Pond’s Silk Cream!

Hey guys!

I recently got to try Pond’s Silk cream, which is one of Pond’s latest creams. The cream contains silk extracts and that’s why it’s called Silk Cream. Frankly speaking, I am more of an Olay girl and not a Pond’s fan. Most of their day creams that I have tried have left my skin either looking oily or whitish tinted. That being said, I would like to reinstate the fact that I am a crazy huge fan of Pond’s Intensive Cell ReGEN™ Super Serum. It works like a dream & no other serum even comes close to it!.

Onto the review of the Silk cream, the first thing that attracted me to it was the fact that it said on the packaging that it delivers 24 hr moisture and is a light non-greasy formula. I am very much into non-greasy formulas, that leave the skin looking supple and youthful. Another thing that was it’s size. It’s comes in a small, cute & handy container that contains only 29 gms, which is perfect for a trial.

The cream has a medium consistency and is white in color. It gets readily absorbed into the skin. A little doesn’t go a long way in this cream’s case. You need a good scoop to get full coverage of your face & neck. This tub should last about 15 to 20 days, depending on your usage. It has a very pleasant smell that lingers on mildly on the skin for a short while.

This Pond’s day cream lives upto it’s promises. It delivers silky, smooth skin that is supple & youthful. It’s my first time being a fan of a Pond’s day cream. If you are already a fan of Pond’s or you would like to give a Pond’s cream a trial, I highly recommend the Silk cream. As for the 24 hr moisture claim, I didn’t test that part out. I did wear it for about 10 hours with nothing else on my skin and it still stayed the same – looking soft & nourished.

Price : Rs. 50 (AED 2.88!) for a tub containing 29 gms.

I bought it from Navaratna hypermarket, in Moonnupeediga, Kerala.

Review: Ponds Age Miracle products!

Hello beautiful people 🙂

I am a huge fan of anything that helps the process of anti-aging. Recently, I tried out three products from the Age Miracle skincare range from Ponds. This range contains Intelligent Pro-cell Complex™, which is created by (and is a trade mark of) Ponds, after a decade of skin science research. I have been using these for more than a month now. Here are my thoughts on it:

Dual Action Eye Cream

This is the first time I have come across an eye cream which targets specific problem areas around the eyes. That means, a cream each for upper eyes and lower eyes!.

Blogpix 001

The pink cream, which is for upper eyes, is enriched with cell boosting Collagen, which helps reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and crow’s feet for a smooth and lifted look. The white cream, which is for under eyes, is powered by CLA (Conjugated Linoleic Acid), which helps stimulate skin to reduce puffiness and dark circles, thus instantly brightening up tired looking eyes.

The packaging is really pretty. It’s a glass container with a lid that separates both the creams. It contains 20 ml, which will last you a long while because a little goes a long way when it comes to eye creams.

Blogpix 001a

Within 2 weeks of it’s usage I noticed significant difference with my dark circles. It really works. I feel like my upper eye area is looking better too. It’s consistency is perfect enough that you can easily pat it around the eyes and it gets absorbed super fast. The white cream is slightly thicker than the pink one, but still easy to work with. I say this product really lives up to it’s claims and so, this is one eye cream you got to be checking out right now.

Price : AED 44.95 for 20ml. Available at all local supermarkets.

Cell ReGEN™ Day Cream SPF 15

The packaging of this day cream is elaborate and nice. It’s a gorgeous glass container which is packed in a square plastic covering. The red lid is pretty and the container has a very unique shape. When you open it, there is a white lid (which I never discard in any creams, because I love how hygienic it is when the product doesn’t get smeared all over the main lid). It comes with a leaflet which shows all the products in this range (this comes along with the eye cream too).

Blogpix0001

I love the fact that this day cream contains SPF. This particular cream is for normal/dry skin. It helps renew skin faster and intelligently targets fine lines, wrinkles and age spots, resulting in exceptionally smooth skin.

The consistency is velvety and creamy. It has a pearlescent look. Being creamy, it gets absorbed fast. You need just the slightest amount to cover your entire face. It is pinkish white, with the slightest bit of shimmer in there, which leaves skin brightened up and looking youthful. It smells very pleasant and feels extremely light on the skin. The result is skin that is velvety soft to touch.

Blogpix0002

One thing I really dislike about it, is that it leaves a whitish tint on the skin. It shows very well on me because I have a dark skin tone. It might be because of the SPF content but even if that’s the reason, for SPF 15, it’s too much of a tint. I have got to say though that when my mom uses it (she has been using this range for some time now), the whitish tint doesn’t show really well because she has a fairer skin tone.

Overall, I recommend this cream to all because it gives such a soft skin tone. But I personally won’t use it again, because even though it has it’s pros, the whitish tint is a bit too much for me to work with.

Price: AED 52 for 50 gms. Available at all local supermarkets.

Intensive Cell ReGEN™ Super Serum

Serums are crucial to the skincare regimen because of it’s power to penetrate and go deeper into the skin cells. I just love serums. This super serum from Ponds is intensive and highly potent, containing 20 times the concentration of CLA when compared to the day cream (reviewed above). It dramatically boosts skin’s capacity for young cell generation.

Blogpix 005

It comes in a tall, metal like container, fitted with a pump. It contains 30ml. The serum has a pinkish hue and is absorbed by the skin extremely fast. I used three pumps of it on my face and two on my neck, both morning and night.

Blogpix 008

Dispensing the product is convenient and hygienic with the help of the pump. It has a very pleasant and soft smell that lingers on. This product lasts a month. I kind of expected it to last me a lot lesser time but 30 ml for a month is a good deal.

Blogpix 010

The result from using this serum is instant youthful looking and rejuvenated skin. I am not kidding you when I say ‘instant’. It really does get to work as soon as you apply it. My skin feels extremely hydrated and soft. I can’t tell you enough how much I love this serum. This is a definite buy for me in all the years to come.

Price: AED 49.50 for 30ml. Available at all local supermarkets.

I highly recommend you try Ponds Age Miracle skincare products. Your skin will definitely thank you!. Have you ever tried Ponds?. Let me know in the comments below.
