Ponds White Beauty All-in-One BB+ Fairness Cream SPF 30 PA++ : Review, Swatch and FOTD

One thing in my vanity that is giving tough competition to my lipsticks are these newly launched bb and cc creams. I already tried the Maybelline BB Cream, the Garnier one even the Maybelline BB Stick but nothing survived the Delhi heat . So in the quest to look for an effective makeup base and in the memory of the Pond tinted moisturizer, I tried the newly launched Ponds White Beauty All-in-One BB+ Fairness Cream with really high hopes.

Price: Rs 125 for 18 g, Rs 69 for 9 g

The Ponds BB cream comes in a pink and white tube packaging with silver cap. Instead of the usual round opening that tube packages have, Ponds has a thin pointed nozzle. I really like it because it because it become really easy to control the quantity.

The texture of the BB cream is really thick. Though the cream itself is really smooth, due to the thick texture it takes time to blend. The cream is not really moisturizing so you need to wear a moisturizer under it.The product gives a semi-matte finish along with medium coverage but due to thick texture building up the coverage becomes really difficult.It does give a slight glow to the face but nothing extraordinary.

The biggest problem I have this cream is that my skin becomes really oily and I have to blot and touch up with powder after like an hour. The overall staying power is also a little disappointing. It doesn’t stay on me for more than 3-4 hours and I like the base to stay for a little longer. And it goes without saying that it doesn’t live up to its claim of lightening the skin tone, dark spots or blemishes.

So final verdict…I don’t like it too much. it doesn’t work for my skin type and the glow it claims to give your skin is nothing special. Skip it especially if you have an oily skin
