Pond's BB Cream - Chocolate

Hot
May 13, 2013
Pond's BB Cream - Chocolate

It has GenActive Cover. So how does this BB Cream work? Well it has Ponds’ patented GenActive formula and Super Optics with mineral pigments and is high in silicones. When the silicones evaporate throughout the day, you’re left with the optics (the “cheat” bit) and this is what creates the blurring effect of pigmentation and uneven skin tone.

Newest to my collection and am loving it.
This BB cream is a really lightweight formula which is perfect for those days when you want minimum make up on .
I have been using just this with concealer every now and then and it gives a gorgeous dewy finish.
Be careful not to use too much as it can leave you with yellow under tones.

I don't usually use BB Creams, this is the first one I purchased.

I'm using it in the color of Beige. I apply this to my blemishes before I apply foundation. I don't recommend applying too much as it left my skin with a yellow tone when I applied too much. I find that this really covers my blemishes and blends well with my foundation. It has an SPF of 30 and it doesn't dry out your skin or leave it feeling oily.

The tube has a volume of 25ml. Which is more than enough ( considering that you shouldn't use a lot ).

I've had this for about 7 months now and it hasn't even hit the halfway mark yet.

If you have blemish prone skin like me, I would recommend giving this a try.

I bought this and it does a lot if mileage with me post gym, weekends away! It really works well and because my skin is on the drier side i dont have to use a powder to set or mop up any shine! V reassuring that it has a high SPF 30 and lots of other ingredients to ensure flawless matte appearing skin! Photographs incredibly well as well! I'm almost finished with the tube i bought about six months ago and while I may stick with a bb cream with more moisturising benefit i think this is a great buy for normal to combination skin!

I am a huge fan of BB cream, the Ponds BB cream in beige blends perfectly with my skin tone and it has an SPF of 30! It's really lightweight and doesn't clog your pores, I really love how it gives me flawless looking skin with a healthy glow without oiliness.

I was quite disappointed with this product...the packaging is so attractive in pinkand silver and it smells great BUT when I put it on it made my skin way too matte and kinda looked chalky. I ddnt see any difference in my skin after 7 days. I think this BB cream will be great for those with very oily skin who want that matte finish.

I managed to svcore a free, reasonably sized sample of this at Dischem.
It looked interesting so I scooped it up.

I am not a huge fan on Ponds since the last time I used the skin care my face broke out tremendously I was a bit sceptical to try it out.

Nevertheless, the application of the cream, beige by the way, was fair and easy because it is very smooth.
I was not very impressed with the coverage; perhaps my skin coulour is too light or the cream colour is not suites to my complexion.

Anyway, I decided to leave the cream on anyway for the day just o get a feel for it and it really was not that bad.

Not something I would really consider buying or using again in the long term.

I finally decided to get in on the BB cream hype (yes I know I am a bit slow sometimes ;-). Here are my thoughts:

PRO'S:
1) SPF30++ to protect from UVA and UVB rays
2) Non-clogging
3) On special at Clicks at moment at R10.00 off (normal price R69.95).
4) Convenient small tube fits into handbag
5) Smell is light and fresh

CONS:
1) Not really suitable for dry skin. Somehow my dry skin feels even dryer after application.
2) As base, the coverage is minimal (yes I know it is not really suppose to cover, but cream is extremely thin).
3) Because cream is so thin, one tends to use more, so do not think the tiny 25ml tube is going to last very long.
4) I am not crazy about how it makes my skin feel and could not see that foundation applied easier because of it.
5) From the claims about evening out skin tone, I experienced NIKS, NADA, net mooi STUFF ALL ;-).

FINAL VERDICT: I usually like Pond's products, but will definitely shop around until I find a BB or CC cream more suitable to my skin. So overall, NOT IMPRESSED.

I really do prefer using BB Cream as a base for those day's when you just don't feel like having much makeup. For summer this is great as it does contain SPF which we ladies all want and need to protect our skin from these harmful summer rays, especially if you living in Cape Town.

I have only tried this pond's BB Cream as it's affordable and does the job.

I found the tube smaller than what i expected but the product consistanty was great and easy to apply on the run. Feels very dewy so can be set be with finishing powder and plush for a a more polished look.

I am such a fan off BB Creams...I actually prefer them over foundation. And I am really wanting to try out POND'S BB Cream because their Gold Radiance range has been excellent for me. I will most certainly be purchasing this BB Cream and hopefully it will work well with the Gold Radiance products.

Makes me grey, and the sales consultant said you still have to wear moisturiser underneath it.

If you are looking for a light BB cream (in terms of consistency), with medium coverage, then this BB cream is for you!

So off I went rushing to try out the new BB cream by Ponds after all the hype of its release. What with BB creams being hailed as the new miracle creams so popular in the East, I was extremely excited to have one that's home bound. I must say very disappointed with the product. Only comes in two shades beige and chocolate. While the beige was not an option for my skin tone, the chocolate did nothing for my skin. It looked like I had a heavy sunscreen on. So no, sorry not for me. Perhaps, if Ponds couild look into extending the colour range?

I hated this. So much. Which makes me sad because I was SO excited to try it. So first, here are my stats: I have a fair skin, not really pale, but not tan. I have a bit of a yellow undertone.
So I tried the Beige shade of Pond's BB cream, and while it was nice and creamy, it left me looking like a Jerseylicious girl. It looked like I had dipped my face in self-tanner or something. It was just SO orange, I couldn't bear it. Had to wash it off immediately.
It's a pity that there isn't a wider variety of shades to choose from. I could have loved it.
