Pond's Flawless White BB Cream Review and Coverage Test

Ponds Flawless White BB Cream Review Swatch

The Pond's Flawless White Whitening Expert BB Cream has been around now for quite some time, but it's actually just two or three months ago when I decided to purchase it and try it out myself.

You see, I'm a little hesitant with BB creams and their limited shades and light coverage, but the Pond's Flawless White BB cream actually fared well and surprised me!

Enriched with GenActiv, it hides blemishes instantly and repairs damaged skin permanently. And with an SPF protection, never worry about the sun’s harmful effects on your skin again. Its formulation is light, non-oily and non-comedogenic, meaning it does not clog pores. This BB cream creates a natural clean no-make-up finish but may also be used as a makeup base.

I've always steered away from buying BB creams because they only came in one or two shades. So, when I read that the Pond's Flawless White Whitening Expert BB Cream was formulated for Asian skin, I thought okay, let me see for myself.

Review
The Pond's BB cream has two shades, light and beige, and it comes in a pink squeeze-tube bottle which looks super cute and chic. If you're a pink lover, you would've probably bought this already just for the color. I've never had any issues with the cap falling off or wasting any product at all because it's really easy to control how much product you need. But wait, is it me or it feels half-empty? I always shake it before using it just to make sure that it's not. It's actually has 25g of product, but it just feels so light that I don't know when do I need to buy a back-up or what.

The Pond's BB cream has a slight powdery scent, barely noticeable, and it has a yellow undertone. I liked how it adjusted to my NC40 skin tone and it didn't make me look ashy or grayish like what other BB creams tend to do. It's very easy to blend via fingers or makeup brushes, and it seems to have a cream-to-powder finish. If you have dry to normal skin, it's actually okay not to set this off with powder.

Coverage is pretty light, but it was able to somehow color correct the red blemish that I have. You can either use it as a makeup base or layer it up to achieve medium coverage. I also like how it feels like second skin. It doesn't feel sticky, it doesn't feel heavy, and it doesn't oxidize and make my face look whiter after a few hours (some BB creams tend to do that. You thought it's already set, but nope, you just see yourself in front of the mirror and shake your head)

Oil control is almost similar to my L'Oreal Infallible Pro Matte. I look dewy at about hour 3, and I blot around hour 4 and powder my T-zone. For the colder days, I don't really need to do any retouch at all. If you look at the photo above, for a 6-hour wear without any powder, I actually look decent. My skin just looked dewy and not oily at all.

In the end, the Pond's Flawless White Whitening Expert BB Cream really surprised me. It came in a yellow undertone and adjusted to my oriental skin. It has good oil control for a BB cream and it makes you look fresh even though you've been wearing it for hours. It just feels super light and it claims to whiten your skin (which I have yet to try as I switch foundations on a daily basis depending on my mood). And coverage was pretty good too considering my skin has so many imperfections. If you have clear skin, I'm already imagining how good this can look on you. No breakouts experienced and I'm planning to mix it with another foundation just to make it a little darker and add more coverage.

This retails for PHP 299 at your leading department stores and supermarkets.

Have you tried this? What was your experience? :)
