PONDS WHITE BEAUTY DAILY SPOTLESS WHITENING CREAM

Pin It
 I am on the fence with this product. I like it..........but I don't like it. This is my 2nd buy though! 'coz this really suited my oily skin and acted as a great moisturiser..........its a great product that has some pitfalls. Ponds released this in Asia under the name white beauty and I hope you guys remember the saif-priyanka chopra ad(what was tat!!!! dusky gals dont get guys..........tats just soooooo derogatory!). I didn't want to try this product first but my room mate had this with her and I tried it once and it really surprised me by being a good moisturiser!







 Eventhough this is a so called "whitening cream" I think people buy it more due to the promise of the produc lightening up the spots on face and this has pro vit B3 & multiple uv protection.Asians are always made fun of 'coz we like "whitening products" but I always see westerners going for tanning products! Guess........the grass is always greener on the other side! coming back to the review

 Pros:-
Really cute girly packaging
Mousse like consistency, so its perfect for oily skin
Has a pinkish-white color & great smell 
It has sun protection in it
Hydrates pretty well
It gives an immediate brightening effect to the face..........gives sort of a luminosity which is quite appealing
Easily available
2 yrs shelf life and affordable at a cost of 150 rs

Cons:-
Somehow this product makes me sweat a lot when I apply this on to my face and if I am not underneath a fan or in an ac room am done for!
Not that great with moisturising properties as it will accentuate any dry flakes one might have on the face
It promises to get rid of spots.....hmmmmmmm I really can't comment on that as I dont have many on my face and I don't think this helps with it a lot(I have read some reviews stating otherwise!)

Overall this is a good purchase for people looking for a decent enough moisturiser that can give sun protection and won't make skin extra oily. I don't use this that much now as I use my Vichy promat cream now(Thankfully I dont have many spots on my face so I don't have to rely on lightening products much)
 

 Has anyone used this?? what's ur take??

I have heard good things about this prdt but haven't used it myself. Sounds like a good buy for oily skinned girls :)

I love this product, but i agree with you on the sweating factor. It absorbs all the oil from my face which i like very much. Am using it for a month maybe and i got a face wash with it in a combo pack. Thanks for the lovely review :)

Hey nice layout! :) And thanks for sharing. I am also looking for such a cream but can't decide which one to buy. I don't have spots either. I want it for my sis :)

This was one of the first products I got when Ponds revamped their range..I have almost the same experience as yours..Leaving a whitish cast, sweating after applying on face etc. So i stopped using this on face..

I use this on my arms (tanned areas) and i apply a lot of it and then a white powdery substance appears and then after 30mins or so I wash it off and my tanned arms appear lighter. I was bored and I did that like an experiment and it worked shockingly lol.

Good review! We don't have skin lightening products here in Germany :(

I don't like the ads that do things like that, just because your skin is darker, doesn't mean it should hold you back. I remember I came to India on holiday a few years ago and there was an ad for a whitening cream and this girl went for an interview as a sports show presenter and they said no. She used the cream, got lighter and they said yes. That's not the message you want to be giving out to young people. Me and my grandmother went shopping and a man commented on how I could use some Fair and Lovely cream so my grandmother slapped him.

Loving the new look of your blog. As for this cream, ponds creams just don't work for me. They make me sweat too & break me out.

Jisha Dil said...

Nice review.:)..I have used this...And i have a normal skin...After applying it I feel like I have a huge mask on my face..But u r right,it brings an immediate brightening effect on the face...

Jennifer Fabulous said...

Haha you're right. It seems no female is happy with her skin tone, whether she's tan or white. We always want what we can't have...sigh.

Great review! I probably won't use this product, as I'm not even sure if we have it in the US. But Ponds is a great brand, so I will definitely have to try other moisturizers they market here. :)

Sharon said...
