love,love,love this stuff!
Ponds has been around a long time...so they must be doing something right.
After trying dozens & dozens of moisturizers that didn't do much for me,I bought this on a whim one day.My skin is pretty dry & I tend to flake around my forehead & chin area (not cute)....
I started using this every night after I wash my face & haven't have a problem with flaking since.This transformed my skin.My face feels soft,supple & completely moisturized.The price tag isn't too bad either,considering the amount you get...& a little goes a loooong way.
Acne Prone skin's arch-nemesis!
This caused a rash on my forehead, cheeks and around my mouth. So disappointing! =( I know mineral oil is one of the main ingredients and it's not good for acne prone skin but I didn't think it would cause this!
I love this! I ran out of my regular moisturizer and this was the only face cream I could find at the store here on campus. I had heard good things, and after using it I definitely agree! I have very dry skin and this works wonders for me! It's so cheap too, definitely worth more than the price, but I'm not complaining!
This was okay. Honestly I bought it because working as a nurse, I find my 80 year old patients, looking like they are 40s-50s using this cream like its water! Patient's I have seen use it on their face, arms, hands.. and they all have the softest skin I have ever felt. I really didn't have any problems using this product, but I also didn't notice the difference either. I wouldn't buy it again because I prefer a moisturizer with SPF.
Someone told me that she had the worst rash on her face from this cream and the rash took about 2 weeks to go away. So as an esthetician I wanted to know why.
POND's claims are: "Won't clog pores", "Hypoallergenic" and "Suitable for sensitive skin". Nice claims, but true? I checked the ingredients.
1. Some ingredients (eg. Mineral Oil, Petrolatum) clog pores.
2. There are no industry standards for products that are labeled as hypoallergenic and go to your bathroom and check your cream's ingredients: basically it will be the same, like this POND's one. My question is: what makes this POND's cream hypoallergenic? (Nothing.)
This cream is synthetic, harmful and toxic. I am still in shock that they have the courage to sell this product and top of that say that this is a great moisturizer and you can trust in it!
I found many comments saying this cream caused break outs. I am not surprised. It has Mineral Oil, Isopropyl Palmitate and Petrolatum in it: all of them very comedogenic.
When I see on a product that it says "Dermatologist Recommended, or Tested", I am very careful, because it's not guarantee for the safety.
I will never put this cream on my face.
Nice consistency, strong fragrance, not a fan of the mineral oil but good for makeup removal
I used to be completely unaware of proper skin care before I took my makeup artistry course at my nearest beauty school. To think, dear Beautylish, I actually washed my extremely dry, sensitive skin with bar soap- GASP! Nowadays I'm into skincare almost as much as beauty, and they work together to create beautiful, healthy skin either way. Of course I've heard of this classic stuff, so one day I splurged on the hefty little tub. The fragrance is very "little old lady", as in strong and heavily perfumed. I am somewhat alright with that. The consistency and color is nice, and I love the packaging and the amount of product you get. For eight bucks its not super cheap, but worth the ten oz. My only qualm with it would be that mineral oil is the second ingredient, after water. I'm still on the fence about that, but mostly because of the feel. I don't want to wear something oily on my face, although I can certainly get away with it, or benefit from it because my face is very dry. It just bummed me out that I didn't look at the ingredients before I bought it (which I ALWAYS do now) and discovered how oily it was. I love the creaminess but the feel is greasy/shiny and has a little drag to it. I like my moisturizers to be water-based and have a smooth application with no drag or pull. I think the mineral oil is to blame. But since it has mineral oil it makes a great moisture packed makeup remover, something I learned online- how makeup artists at runway shows always carry some with them for quick makeup removal. I like to take whats left on the cap and run a q-tip through it- its a perfect way to clean up cat eyes gone messy and clean up eye makeup to make straighter lines, and erase fall-out. I'm pretty sure this tub will last me FOREVER and would make a pretty good moisturizer at bedtime as well as a handy makeup remover.
moisturizer and a lil something extra
this product has been in my house hold for quite sometime. Woman and cold creams, huh? Come to find out that it is a perfect and I do mean perfect tool for removing eye make up. No more racoon eyes even after cleansing. The fact that it is made to fight dry skin is even more to be merrier about.
Great feel, BAD scent.
I love how this makes my skin feel after i wash my face and apply it! It doesnt make it feel sticky or stiff like other 'moisturizers' but rather dewy and soft. Same with under my makeup! However, the SCENT is a way to fragrant for me...im not a fan of it..it makes me feel like im putting a whole lot of chemical and alcohol on my face, other than that works beautifully.
I have extremely sensitive, dry skin, and 99% of facial moisturizers sting like crazy. Even if they claim to be formulated for sensitive skin! I am amazed at the gentleness and moisturizing power of Pond's, especially due to the low price!!
I have the most temperamental skin; some times it is oily and sometimes it is dry. To top that off I always breakout often and my skin gets red just from touching it. I am always scared to try new moisturizers, but I have to because I can NEVER find the right one for me. Thank God someone told me about pond's. This moisturizer is PERFECT for me. It calms my skin and after about 5 mins it is settled into my skin. I have received so many compliments on my skin lately it is crazy! This moisturizer will truly make your skin healthy! buy it!
