My Thoughts :

The packaging of the product is easy and convenient to use. It comes with a lid that pops open and makes a very satisfying click when closing.

This is my Holy Grail face wash. I use it every morning to wash my face clean. 

It is very effective in removing makeup and my clean feels absolutely squeaky clean after using this.

I would like to add that this is a face wash strictly for oily skinned beauties because it will be very drying for all other skin types. Even if you have combination skin it will make dry areas even drier. But that is a given since it clearly states “Oil Control” face wash.

It keeps me matte for 1-2 hours, which according to the grease-ball I am, is pretty good for a face wash. I do love how clean my skin feels after using this.

Whenever using a face wash, we should remember to rub it into our skin for at least 20-30 seconds to achieve its full benefits.

The consistency is thick and creamy. White base with tiny blue beads of “Mineral Clay” that help control the shine.

Image

The GOOD :

1. It will leave you squeaky clean.

2. Good for oily people.

3. A tiny pea sized amount is enough for your whole face.

4. Travel friendly packaging ( smaller size available )

5. Affordable

6. Easily available

7. Great quantity for the price.

8. Since it helps in controlling oil, it also helps prevent acne.

The COULD BE BETTER :

1. It is NOT meant for any other skin type other than oily.

Will I recommend and repurchase?

Yes absolutely! This is my 4-5 tube and I recommend it to everyone with severely oily skin.

Price – Rs. 119 for 100gm

POND’S Pure White Deep Cleansing Facial Foam

What POND’S claims :

Formulated with Activated Carbon and Vitamin B3, Pond’s Pure White is a deep cleanser that exfoliates dead skin cells, and draws out impurities and dirt from the skin’s surface, as well as deep within pores to reveal your natural, pure-white looking skin.

 
Special Ingredient

Activated Carbon

An extremely porous mineral that absorbs impurities without over-drying your skin.

Ingredients :

Myristic Acid, glycerin, water, propylene glycol, potassium hydroxide, palmitic acid & stearic acid, decyl glucoside, lauric acid, glycol distearete, glyceryl stearate, polyquatemium-7, DMDM hydantoin & lodopropynyl butylcarbamate, niacinamide, charcoal Powder, carbon, perfume, disodium EDTA

The packaging of the product is easy and convenient to use. I really like the all black packaging. It comes with a lid that pops open and makes a very satisfying click when closing.

This is one my favorite face washes. I use it every night before sleeping.

After using this face wash, my skin feels refreshed.

It has a very strong fragrance that smells just like expensive perfume. I personally love it. It makes me feel like a spa massage on my face every night because of its wonderful scent. In fact, I love it so much that I wish their was an actual perfume the same scent as this! In the ingredients it does say it has perfume. So the strong scent might be too much for sensitive people.

It doesn’t help with oil control since it is not meant to do so. Also, I do not really care about the whitening aspect of this wash face. However, with continued usage it will contribute a little to evening out the skin tone. This is not a moisturizing face wash so it might be drying for dry skinned beauties.

It is good for clearing make-up too.

In my opinion, this is best suited for normal – combination skin.

The consistency is thick and creamy and it lathers up well. It looks charcoal grey.

The GOOD :

1. It will leave you feeling refreshed and clean.

2. Good for normal-combination skin types,

3. A tiny pea sized amount is enough for your whole face.

4. Travel friendly packaging ( smaller size available )

5. Affordable

6. Easily available

7. Great quantity for the price.

8. Removes make-up

The COULD BE BETTER :

1. It is slightly drying.

2. Claims of whitening are high.

Will I recommend and repurchase?

Yes! This is my 3-4 tube and I use it every night, I love the scent and it makes me feel really clean.

Price – Rs. 150 for 100gm.

I use these two face washes everyday, They are a part of my daily skin care regimen. I like to use the oil controlling face wash in the morning to help with shine during the day and pure white at night to feel refreshed and ready for bed! 🙂

They are easily available at any general store that sells toiletries, pharmacies and New-U stores across the country.
