Pond's Age Miracle

Ponds as a beauty brand has come a long way over the years. I really like the improvement on the texture and the packaging. It is really up there with the more pricier brands.

At first I was a little sceptical about trying this range out since I have skin that doesn't always "play nice" when it comes to new products. I am definitely impressed with the Ponds age miracle range. I have been using the Facial foam, toner and day cream for roughly a month now and all I can say is it is definitely worth the money. After my morning cleansing routine, these products leave my skin feeling soft and supple - even in the harsh dry winter wind.

Facial foam- - complete with a subtle fragrance and micro beads that leave your skin feeling clean and pampered.

Toner- this has got to be one of my favourite and most effective toners I have used thus far. It really cleared my pores without leaving my skin feeling dry.

Day cream - My absolute favourite! Incredibly moisturising without leaving any sort of residue on the skin. It has a light fragrance that is not over powering but instead gives it a soft pampering feel. I love that it has an SPF 15 which makes my skin feel that much more protected!


These products are definitely in my good books! :)

The Age- miracle range is exactly what it says, a miracle.Though I received my hamper late, I was totally impressed from day one.The range right from the facial foam wash to the night cream gave my skin an instant radiant look and it feels so silky on the skin.the most amazing thing is that even people notice the difference to my skin already and it has only been four days of using the product.I have one request for Pond's though, could they start a men's range as well cause somebody won't stay on their side of the cabinet now!!!

I have been using the Pond's Age Miracle range for roughly a month now and I've noticed a great difference in my skin, it has evened my skin tone, moisturized rough and dry skin caused by the winter season AND I have soft, supple, smooth and clear skin which glows and feels well looked after and moisturized. I love that the night cream seems to leave you moisturized all night, leaving you waking up with beautiful feeling skin.

I love, love, love the serum especially because it has a slight shimmer to it, the BB cream is a great shade that almost melts into my skin and I've found that the tone of the BB Cream is better than the normal range. I love that the day creams (and BB) include an SPF and I find the Facial Foam is a great cleanser. All in all these are great products and very well priced.

Before I received the products I thought to myself "oh my...these people looked at my age on my profile and assumed that my skin should be aging!" You see, I have always had better skin than most (and people tell me this everyday), and I never thought it could possibly look and feel better than it was prior to using these products.

I am now pleased to report back, having used the products for a week and a half, that my skin is soft and smooth to the touch, so much I cant get over it. Every time I look in the mirror I cannot believe how different my skin looks. In retrospect, I realize that my skin WAS actually looking a little dull.
I am definitely going to continue using Ponds Age Miracle, as I am one to stick with a formula. that works.

I have always used Ponds product since I was a little girl but tried other product as the years went. When I received the full miracle range I did the wrinkle test and the result was that I had deep wrinkles. I started using the product and from day 1, my skin felt baby soft, on day 3, my skin started to glow and I was getting a lot of compliments. My skin continued to glow and remain baby soft :). After 7 days, I redid the wrinkle test and my wrinkles went from deep to smooth skin :), seeing is believing. I will continue to use this range and my friends and colleagues are using it too.

This review is what this review is not. There’ll be none of that lab rat technical jargon I can NEVER understand in any beauty product tell-all. I know anything age defying is a mystery to all and its expected that when we talk about them the main thing is to mind-boggle with words none of can pronounce. Mine is typical of any beauty product review I’d want to read…it speaks about my obsession with my skin and unending pursuit of making it look photo-shopped without the help of make-up. And in this case I’ll be talking about how the Pond’s Age Miracle range has helped me in that pursuit.

It was a cartwheels-out-of-bed kind of morning literally when I got the email from BB telling me I’d be reviewing Pond’s Age Miracle range. The opportunity came just as I’d come to realise that make up was just not taking care of all of my skin problems. I hated the fine lines across my forehead and laugh lines alongside my mouth and how foundation just seemed to accentuate them by settling right inbetween the cracks when all I want is to wipe them from the face of the earth. I could kick myself for not preventing them when I had the chance but be that as it may, I was beyond ecstatic at the chance of participating in this 7 day Pond’s Age Miracle full range trial.

I got to work immediately, needless to say. And this is my experience. *Drumroll*…

I took the skin test first as set out as a guideline…now hear me out I did admit a few sentences ago to having concerns about fines lines right? Great. But as you’ll probably agree with me when it comes to catastrophic annoyances like aging lines, unwanted kilo’s, cellulite you want to believe you’re being paranoid about them, infact there’s very few other instance I find paranoia so appealing. Now here I am looking at this small paper gadget that’s potentially about to cause problems between me and my paranoia. I took the test – rubbed the powder on the eye corner area as prescribed - and the results…. Check enclosed pic.

Urghhh. SOME fine lines. But otherwise smooth skin. *ahem*

I went into full combat mode.

Cell ReGen Facial Foam

Loved the smooth luxury feel, I just wanted to continue lathering it on my skin. Not too foamy, just the right consistency to give myself a mini cleansing facial. Subtle smell, which was also very pleasant given the number of products I still had to follow on with. My skin did however feel abit tight after but was pleasantly surprised with how bright it appeared. In hindsight I recall the back of the package promising exacty this …’instant renewal and refreshment…’ I guess my focus was mostly on seeing results on the fine lines.

Cell ReGen Toner

One of my best products in the range. Conditioned my skin beautifully especially after the tight feeling I got from the Cleanser. More brightness and my skin just felt more supple. Again, great smell – clean and fresh. I'd highly recommend to always use the toner after cleansing.

Intensive Cell ReGEN Serum with Intelligent Pro-Cell Complex

Wow. Here it was mostly the texture that wowed me. My skin just seemed to instantly absorb the product. It had the most unique feel on my skin, extreme conditioning and just so smooth. From day one I was extremely expectant about this product based on how my skin responded to it but because I used multiple products all in the same treatment I found it difficult to pinpoint the exact visible results from the Serum.

Cell ReGEN Day Cream SPF 15 with Intelligent Pro-Cell Complex – For normal/dry skin

Sigh. Now when I opened my package after fetching it from the Post Office, I was bowled over by the packaging of the Day Cream, infact I thought this was the Rolls Royce of the entire range. Stunning container and definitely high end appeal. As soon as I applied it on my skin however I dreaded it. It has a white film residue that just does not get absorbed but just stays there the whole day giving me an extremely unsightly ghostly look. I figured my foundation will do the trick and it did faze out the whiteness but then it changed the texture of my foundation. My coverage looked dry and lacked the dewiness I like from using a day moisturizer underneath my foundation.

Deep Action Night Cream with Intelligent Pro-Cell Complex

I had the same experience as the Day Cream the first night I applied this product, white film residue, not easily absorbed… but the nights following that I found that it worked better with the Serum as a base. Infact the 2 together were great as an evening treatment. Non-greasy and my skin felt ‘cared-for’ as I slept.

Dual Action Eye Cream

This is where I invested all my hopes and I have to say this thing delivered. I’ve never used eye cream products so I didn't know what to expect. It’s a dual-action cream, one for the upper eye and the other for the under-eye area. The upper eye promised a lift while under-eye a reduction on puffiness and discoloration. It so happened on day 3 I had a very late and stressful night and ordinarily I’d have to contend with unsightly bags and puffiness around my eyes the morning after such a night but after applying the eye cream I waited to see what the results would be. I’m pleased to say, I woke up fresh-faced with just a little puffiness, barely noticeable.

Through out the 7 days I can’t say I’ve seen progressive results by that I mean I had the same experience with the products as I’ve been having from day 1 BUT I will say. Since day 6 to date, I’ve left the house without ANY foundation and you have to know me to know that I NEVER EVER leave the house fresh-faced EEEEVER. And I look good too (if I do say so myself) But the real wonder is this….check below

My 2nd Test. This is with an even bigger smile. You be the judge of these before and after pics. I’d post actual pictures of my skin but the

I’m definitely excited at the prospect of continuing with the treatment. I was highly impressed with the 7 day promise, moreover by the results so I can only eagerly anticipate that photo-shopped skin after continued use.

That wraps up my tell-all for my 7 day Pond’s Age Miracle trial. Absolutely love the experience.

Because lets face it outer beauty wins all the time, hands down. Inner beauty?... Just doesn’t get much done. Like free roadside assistance and strangers offering to open your doors. I don’t know about you but no ones ever stopped me in public to give me a compliment about my kindness.

Gone are the days of skin-drying,skin-cracking and skin-whitening Pond's. Hello...Age miracle! Am I loving this range. A significant difference is felt from the first 7 days of use. The packaging is beautiful and the instructions are very easy to understand. The smell is absolutely "spa" fabulous and lingers for quite some time after the initial application. It is one of the most amazing smells that I have ever experienced. The day cream was very difficult to open. My hands had to be very dry in order for me to actually "crack" it. However,once all the products are open,its luxury all the way. The serum is the bomb,giving a luxurious and velvety feel to the skin. The texture is silky soft,skin doesn't shine and it feels nourished all day long. My laugh-lines-which I noticed in more clarity with the initial wrinkle test, look less noticeable and my face fresh. After 7 days of continuous use and taking the second wrinkle test,the skin radiates,its soft and supple and feels wonderfully hydrated. The Pond's Age Miracle range is a god sent. My skin has gone from strength to strength. Am definitely continuing to use it. Stunning product with stunning results. Fabulosity all the way. See or try it for yourself.

I was really excited when I was nominated to be part of the Pond’s Age Miracle Review Club . I received full sized products consisting of the facial foam, toner, serum, eye cream, day and night cream. The packaging of the Age Miracle range exudes class and elegance. Each product contained a leaflet explaining the products in the Age Miracle range. I took the Pond’s Age Miracle Wrinkle challenge before use and 7days after use. The wrinkle test is quick and simple. Before use of the Age Miracle products, you apply the Powder applicator onto the skin on the eye corner area. You follow this step by pressing the Visual Patch onto the powdered skin while smiling to check the signs of aging. The reference patterns on the challenge are smooth skin, fine lines, wrinkles and deep wrinkles. When I took my Pond’s Age Miracle Wrinkle challenge it showed that I had a few fine lines. These few fine lines are only visible when I smile and you can only see them up close and personal. I am all for Prevention is better than Cure? so I was very keen on the eye cream. I retook the Pond’s Age Miracle Wrinkle challenge again after 7 days of using the products and it showed that I had smooth skin. I will definitely keep using the eye cream as a preventive measure.?

The products did not break out my skin during use. I did not experience any redness, drying or skin irritation as well. The products do come with a SUN ALERT as skin may become sensitive. The day cream does have the required SPF and unnecessary prolonged sun exposure should be avoided.

Please find below my in-depth review of the individual products.

Pond’s Age Miracle Dual Action Eye Cream

This is a dual action formula that effectively helps fight the signs of ageing in the specific areas surrounding the eye. As different factors result in different signs of ageing in the upper and lower eye area, this dual formula eye cream features two formulations – one to target the upper eye area, and one to target the lower area. According to Pond’s Institute, it has the following Key Benefits:

•Pink Upper Eye Cream is enriched with cell boosting collagen and helps reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and crow’s feet for a smooth and lifted look.
•White Under Eye Brightening Cream helps stimulate the skin to reduce puffiness and dark circles to instantly brighten tired looking eyes.
•Dermatologist and Ophthalmologist tested.
•It is suitable for sensitive eyes and contact lens wearers.
•Contains collagen, chamomile and sunshields.

I used my left ring finger to apply a pea size of the eye cream daily, in the morning and night. Using my ring finger ensured that I did not apply any unnecessary force on my delicate eye area. The eye cream comes a little glass jar with a red lid and has two compartments, one for the upper eye and the other for the under eye. When you open the lid, there is a protective cover which stops the different eye creams from mixing. The pink cream is for the upper eyes. It 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 directions of use are to dot small amounts on the upper eyelids and gently spread outwards. The pink cream has a gel-like feel to it but it absorbs into the skin.

The white cream is for the under eyes. It is powered by CLA, which helps stimulate skin to reduce puffiness and dark circles to instantly brighten tired looking eyes. The directions of use are to dot small amounts on under eyes and gently spread outwards. The under eye cream has a thick, creamy texture but it absorbs into the skin. Care needs to be taken not to apply too much product. I did notice that this cream instantly brightened my under eye area.

Both creams apply smoothly onto the skin and they do not feel sticky. When I did the Pond’s test, it showed that I had a few fines which you can see up close and personal when I smile. This eye cream did a great job of combating those lines and I will continue to use this cream as a preventative measure.

Pond’s Age Miracle Deep Action Night Cream with Intelligent Pro-Cell Complex

This is especially formulated to work at night when cell regeneration potential is at its peak. Its rich texture instantly melts into the heart of the skin to help accelerate the renewal process as you sleep and waking up to skin that’s smooth, silkier and luxuriously soft. According to Pond’s Institute, it has the following Key Benefits:

•Expertly fights fine lines and wrinkles.
•Helps visibly reduce the appearance of age spots.
•Enhances overall skin radiance.

I applied this cream every night after cleansing my face with the Age Miracle Facial foam. The packaging is identical to the day cream. It comes in a thick glass tub with a red lid with a fancy unique shape. Once you open the lid, you will find a protective cap that prevents the product from smearing all over the red lid. The Pond’s Age Miracle Deep Action Night Cream with Intelligent Pro-Cell Complex is lightly scent and pale pink in colour. It has a soft creamy texture and is non-greasy. It applies almost matte. It absorbs easily into the skin and feels hydrating on application. Some nights, I used it alone and other nights I used it together with the serum. This fantastic night cream does not leave any white residue on the skin. Every morning, I woke up to soft and smooth skin. I really love this night cream and I know that it has become a staple in my skin care regimen. I will continue to use this product to fight against the signs of aging.

Pond’s Age Miracle Cell ReGEN Day Cream SPF 15 with Intelligent Pro-Cell Complex

This is a luxurious cream that helps renew skin faster and intelligently targets fine lines, wrinkles and age spots. According to Pond’s Institute, it has the following Key Benefits:

•Expertly fights fine lines and wrinkles.
•Helps visibly reduce the appearance of age spots.
•Protects against age-accelerating UVA/UVB rays.
•Enhances overall skin radiance.
•Non-oily and quick absorbing formulation.

The day cream is also enriched with Vitamin C, Micro Collagen and SPF 15 for effective caring and protection from sun damage.

The packaging of this day cream is very elegant and classy. The cream comes in a thick glass tub with a red lid with a fancy unique shape. Once you open the lid, you will find a protective cap that prevents the product from smearing all over the red lid. The Pond’s Age Miracle Cell ReGEN Day Cream SPF15 has a light floral scent and pale pink in colour. It has a soft texture and it is non-greasy. It feels very light and velvety on the skin but does not feel very hydrating on my skin. I discovered that it was best for me to first apply the Pond’s Age Miracle Intensive Cell ReGEN Serum and then the Day cream afterwards. It does leave a white cast or residue on the skin on application. This does eventually fade away. I think this white cast is caused by the SPF in the cream but I has noticed that most Pond’s creams do leave a white residue on application. I discovered that if I warmed up the product by rubbing a small amount in my hands, the white cast was less noticeable. For me personally, this day cream had a matiffying effect. This product left my skin with a velvet-smooth feel.

I believe the white cast or residue especially on darker skin tones is the only let-down for this product. If you wear foundation or BB/CC creams on a daily basis, this is not going to be a major issue. However on the day that you decide to go makeup free, you have to make sure that the white cast or residue is gone before you step out of the house otherwise you will look ghostly. Other than that, this is a great product in terms of the behind the scenes or should I say, under the skin action to prevent aging and unlock your youth potential.

Pond’s Age Miracle Cell ReGEN Toner

POND’S Age Miracle Cell ReGEN Toner is uniquely designed to help fight the signs of ageing by gently refining ageing skin cells as it removes dead skin cells and minimises pores. This promotes instantly flawless and tighter skin. According to Pond’s Institute, it has the following Key Benefits:

•Alcohol-free.
•Tones and refreshes the skin as it wipes away ageing skin cells.
•Skin is deeply cleansed while retaining its natural moisture level.

I used the Cell ReGEN Toner everyday – morning and evening followed by either, the Pond’s Age Miracle Day Cream or Night Cream. I applied the toner on to a cotton pad and swept over face and neck, avoiding the delicate eye area as directed. The POND’S Age Miracle Cell ReGEN Toner comes in a plastic bottle with a red flip top cap. The bottle is transparent with a faint red tinge to it. The toner has a faint lovely, refreshing clean scent to it. It did not burn, sting, irritate my skin – no redness. It removed the last traces of impurities on my skin without drying it out – that horrible tightness that some toners leave. I think it is because it contains no alcohol. It left my skin feeling clean and invigorated.

Pond’s Age Miracle Cell ReGEN Facial Foam with Intelligent Pro-Cell Complex

It is a daily regenerating cleanser that helps fight the signs of ageing through gentle micro-exfoliation. According to Pond’s Institute, it has the following Key Benefits:

•Micro-exfoliates aged skin to reveal new skin.
•Cleanses thoroughly without leaving skin dry or flaky.
•Reduces dullness.
•Enhances overall skin radiance.

I used the Facial Foam every morning and evening, followed by the POND’S Age Miracle Cell ReGEN Toner. I would lather a small amount and gently massage into the skin as directed. Followed by thoroughly rinsing off with water. The Pond’s Age Miracle Cell ReGEN Facial Foam with Intelligent Pro-Cell Complex comes in a red and white tube with a secure screw cap. The dispensing nozzle is narrow to ensure that the right amount of product comes out. It is lightly scented with a lovely soft fragrance. The foam is white in colour with a slightly thick creamy texture to it. It has tiny little reddish pink granules for exfoliation. These granules are very gentle on the skin making it suitable for everyday use. The foam lathers very well especially if you use warm water. It did not irritate my skin, leave it dry and stripped of moisture. Every single time I used this foam, it left my skin looking and feeling smooth, soft and cleansed. It did a great job of removing any impurities on my skin without drying it out. My face appeared brighter after washing.
