Hello girls, today I am going to do a review on ponds white beauty BB plus fairness cream. I will tell you it’s price in India, cons and pros of the ponds BB cream, its shades, how it fares on oily/ dry skin type, and how to use this cream. Keep reading on.
Pond’s is a cosmetic brand that every Indian woman has been familiar with. So, today I am back with another product review from Ponds. It’s about a BB cream that they have launched – Ponds white beauty BB plus cream. I have already reviewed one BB cream from Maybelline brand.
I could have written a ponds BB plus cream review earlier, but I couldn’t find one in nearby stores. I had to buy it online. And now I finally have my hands it. I applied this BB plus cream for two days in my office so that I could know it really well before reviewing.
PONDS WHITE BEAUTY BB PLUS FAIRNESS CREAM DESCRIPTION OR DETAILS
- SPF FACTOR
It’s an all in one BB plus fairness cream with SPF 30 PA++. SPF is sun protection factor. The more the SPF, the more protection the product gives you from the harsh sun. I consider SPF 30 PA++ more than enough. The product works as a BB cream plus a sunscreen.
The outer packaging of the ponds white beauty BB cream is a pink color rectangular box. The cream itself comes in a white tube with a long and thin nozzle. This is a good thing about it that the nozzle is thin and long enough so that I can apply the BB plus cream directly on the face using the nozzle. I’ll just have to dot the cream all over my face directly with the nozzle and would not have to take the cream on my palm.
The texture of the ponds BB plus cream is little thick but easy to blend. For blending purpose you can use a blending brush. That will spread the cream on every inch of the face evenly. Or, you can just blend it with both of your palms for that matter. The whole purpose is just to evenly spread the BB plus cream all over the face and not look it cakey or made up.
There’s only one shade that this BB plus cream offers-NATURAL RADIANCE with GenWhite cover formula. It’s a sad part and a huge downside because this shade won’t compliment every skin tone. The idea behind the ‘natural radiance’ shade is to give a natural looking glow on the skin. I don’t agree with this as we have got a variety of skin tones in Indian skin and every skin tone has its own shade of the product. The shade is a bit light. It will complement a fair person or person whose skin tone is between fair and slightly dusky color. For people with darker skin tones, applying this cream will just give a made-up look. In short, the cream is not for every Indian skin tone.
To check out the ingredients I have posted the picture down below and you can check for yourself. Make sure that you are not allergic to any of these ingredients before buying the BB cream.
EFFECTS OF PONDS BB PLUS CREAM ON DIFFERENT SKIN TYPES
- EFFECTS ON DRY SKIN
The ponds BB plus cream works really well on the dry skin type. Dry skin is usually devoid of any glow. Applying this cream does gives a natural glow to the skin. I will recommend this cream for women with dry skin types.
- EFFECTS ON OILY SKIN
This BB cream will not work much better for oily skin type people. People with oily skin already have a glow to their skin. The ponds BB cream works to give a natural glow on the skin, but in case of oily skin the cream might cause more greasiness on the face. Applying loose or compact powder on top might help in controlling oiliness.
- WILL THE PONDS BB CREAM CAUSE ACNE?
From the above points I can say that the ponds BB plus cream is absolutely safe for people with dry and dry to normal skin type. Applying this cream will not lead to acne breakage. But I can’t say the same for oily skin. The cream might clog the pores and cause acne.
MY TAKE ON THE PONDS WHITE BEAUTY BB PLUS CREAM
THE CLAIM OF THE PONDS WHITE BEAUTY BB PLUS FAIRNESS CREAM
- Instant natural glow on outside
- Lightens your skin and spots from inside
- Evens skin tone
- With SPF 30 plus plus for sun protection
- No clogging of pores
- Light, non-oily texture
This BB plus cream surely gives a glow to my skin. The smell of the cream is that of a typical Pond’s cream. The formula of the cream is non-oily and just doesn’t feel heavy on the skin.It’s a good buy for people with oily skin. The shade of the cream suits me as I have a fair to dusky skin tone.
The BB cream lasts for some amount of time. But, it doesn’t have a long lasting power so, retouching is needed after four hours of the first application. I have dry skin and this Pond’s BB plus cream still soothed my skin despite it having a non oily formula.
Talking about the SPF, as I told before, it’s more than enough. In the harsh sun like in summers, I would recommend applying sunscreen first.
The price of the cream is very affordable. The availability in local stores can be an obstacle as I couldn’t find it here and I had to order it online. I purchased it online for 140 INR only.
