I am back with another review. This time it is the Pond’s white beauty Blemish prevention UV cream. As you all might know my skin is very easily prone to blemishes & acne marks so when I came across the term ‘blemish prevention’ I jumped at it.Â Lets see how this one worked for me…
Strong sun rays not only darken skin, they go deep into your skin to trigger the appearance of dark spots. NEW Blemish Prevention UV Cream
protects both against UVB burning rays and the deep penetrating UVA rays that are the main cause of dark spots. Complete UV Range Protection. SoÂ with VAO â€“ B3 complex, not only will it lighten, but also helps to prevent the formation of dark spots below the skin surface.
* Protects across the entire range of UVA & UVB rays.
DIRECTIONS: How to get flawlessly radiant skin even under the sun:
Apply a generous amount after cleansing
skin and at least 10 minutes before stepping out into the sun. For best results, re-apply when you are out in the sun. Avoid unnecessary harsh sun exposure. Not water â€“ resistant.
PRICE: Rs 299/-
My Experience with Pond’s White Beauty Blemish Prevention UV Cream:
Packaging: The UV cream comes in an offÂ white pump dispenser with a pink cap. The pump is very smooth & dispenses the right amount of product. This one is veryÂ unlike other pond’sÂ creams whichÂ come in a bulky tub. Very easy to handle & comfortable to carry.
Texture: The cream is soft & spreads well, it feels mattifying as soon as applied.
I was excited to use this cream as it is a day cream with UV protection & spot corrector all rolled into one, so I wouldn’t have to put on layers of products.Â AlsoÂ the white beauty range had positive reviews I had pretty high expectations, Pond’s products have largely worked well for oily skin.
When I used it the first time, the UV cream seemed to get absorbed without much effort & felt mattifying.Â Just aÂ pea size amount of cream is required to cover theÂ entire face.Â But the disappointment came when I looked into the mirror, though it felt matte, my face looked greasy & unevenly tanned like I was just back from the sun. My T-zone almost looked red like it was sunÂ burnt, I normally have break outs in that area so it probably stood out. I thoughtÂ because it was the first time,Â maybe my skin reacted that way.Â When IÂ topped it with a compact, the tanned look settled, butÂ my face stillÂ looked dull.
Once I got back home when I checked my face, my skin looked tired & overworked. But because it was the firstÂ day I was usingÂ the dayÂ creamÂ I stillÂ wanted to give it time to work. I used it daily for about two weeks or so, every time it was the same story, my face looked dull & grey post application. Once I would washÂ my faceÂ it brightened my face also I started to notice a reduction in the blemishes & my face appeared more clear. I can sayÂ the UV creamÂ must have worked as a sunblock because I did not notice much tanning during that period.
In spite of itÂ working on clearing acne marks, I could not bear to go out with a grey face everyday so I stopped using it as a day cream. Would have preferred to use it at night, but it contains sunscreens specially oxybenzoneÂ which is not safe to be used at night. Later I started to useÂ the day creamÂ as a spot treatment on all the marks, but sinceÂ I have too many spotsÂ all over my T-zone, it was tedious to even do that & eventually I stopped using it.
What I like about Pond’s White Beauty Blemish Prevention UV Cream :
- The pump bottle, compact packaging
- Contains UV protection
- Worked on clearing acne blemishes
- Contains Niacin amide (Vitamin B3)
What I didn’t like about Pond’s White Beauty Blemish Prevention UV Cream :
- Makes my face appearÂ dull & grey
- Completely Unsuitable for dry skin
- Did not work as a day cream
- No mention of SPF
The Pond’s White Beauty Blemish Prevention UV Cream did not fulfil it’s purpose. It makes the skin soÂ dullÂ that itÂ cannot be used while stepping out of the house, which defeats the whole purpose of the UV cream.
Will I Recommend & Repurchase Pond’s White Beauty Blemish Prevention UV Cream :Â
This is not suitable for dry skin & it didn’t work on my combination to oily skin, so cannot recommend thisÂ product to anyone.
