REVIEW: Ponds White Beauty BB Cream!

It seems like there was a BB cream storm that took over and shook the beauty world a few years ago and ever since we've seen a BB cream (or two) pop up in almost every makeup/skincare brand. While the concept of a Blemish Balm isn't new anymore, this Ponds White Beauty BB Cream definitely is a newbie in the Pakistani market! With an affordable price tag of just PKR 395 for 18 gms could this be a drugstore gem or an absolute disaster?



Well a disaster, it most certainly is not! If you're a medium complexion normal to combination skin gal and have been eyeing this BB cream, what are you waiting for? Not only do I find the packaging very sleek and chic, the product is hands down really REALLY good! Infact this may even be good for a touch drier or oilier skin type because it doesn't dry out or really emphasize my dry skin areas nor does it go shiny on me thoughout the day on my T-zone. A little moisturizer for the dry skin, a touch powder for the oily areas and it's all good. It sets to a semi matte finish and my face does feel slightly oily after an entire day at uni around the T-zone but it only feels oily, doesn't look greasy or shiny which I find strange but works for me!



It also feels very lightweight yet evens out and covers up problem areas well considering it is not a medium-full coverage foundation. The color is yellow toned, which is perfect for me and it almost blends into nothingness on the skin and looks radiant instead of giving a dead flat finish since it's not the dewiest BB cream I've come across. The lasting power is pretty impressive too (I'd say I get about 10 hours + of good wear until I notice the oily feeling) and it comes with an SPF 30 PA+++ and although that may mean a slight white cast especially in flash photography, I haven't experienced it! The fact that they included the term "Fairness Cream" probably has more to do with the SPF in it than anything else because after all that it what's protecting your skin from sun damage, hence reducing skin burning or tanning although I haven't noticed any "fairness" so that is probably just a sales gimmick.

LEFT: Bare face, RIGHT: Ponds BB Cream.

To sum it all up, a total drugstore gem, hasn't broken me out and feels and looks natural and healthy while taking care of my bad acne scars. I'm impressed! The only reason this gets a 4/5 is the lack of a shade range. I got mine from Just4girls.pk!
My Rating:


4/5: Love love love!

  2. I've been using this for quite a while now, this really does make an awesome base. I think it will be better than my Garnier in Summers. This has more semi-matte finish on my skin, which I love <3
    Your last picture is PERFECTION. It perfectly shows how awesome the coverage is :) Thanks for sharing :)

    1. It's not too dark so if you have fair skintone it should work well for you! :) It does adapt a bit to your own color!

    2. Hi Aisha! It's Shaz here. Mostly bb creams are darker in shades comparatively to my skin tone. Will it work for fair skin?

      Delete
    3. Hi Shaz! <3 I think it should work because it adjusts a bit! :) It's cheap so why not give it a go!
