Prologue: I would normally say my skin is oily, but my skin has become more combination over the last few years. This winter, however, my skin had disintegrated into doing what ever the hell it wants. Meaning my normally oily/combination skin was sahara dry and I had no clue how to take care of it. All winter long my face has peeled and flaked like I'm sunburned. My normal moisturizers were not cutting it. So, out of desperation, I went to Target and looked at just about every moisturizer they had in stock. I've never had dry skin before so I didn't want to spend a lot of money trying out a moisturizer that might not work. Finally, I found the little ponds travel size moisturizers and picked this one out.
Review: I really, really like this moisturizer! There is a faint herbal smell but it doesn't bother me. When I put it on it spreads really easily and feels like it's sinking in fast. My skin has not broken out because of using it. However, I only use it at night, because my skin will get really oily a few hours after putting this on. The best part is that my skin feels soft and smooth. The peeling and flaking has gone away. I doubt I'll need something this heavy in the summer, but next winter I'll definitely go back to using this product. The only negative I can think of it that it comes in a tub instead of a pump or a tube. Other than that, I'm very happy with my skin's turn around.
i have been using this moisturizer ever since my childhood,
i love it, it's perfect for winter when it gets cold, its super moisturizing, has no icky residue, sinks into skin quickly, may not be suitable for oily skin, but since i have combination skin, i use it all over my face, except for my forehead, i use a oil-free moisturizer that.
a little goes a long way, i have mine in a big jar, it cost about 10 bucks, and it lasts me over a year, i will be buying this till the death of me :)
Wow what a drugstore gem! I love this as an evening moisturizer. It has seaweed, apple, and grapefruit extracts and glides on like a dream. I bought a huge 14 oz. tub for $8.47 on Amazon! I did some research and this cream has been around since the early 60's but only marketed in México, so I never knew about it. I believe the US versión is the dry skin fórmula with the white and blue packaging. That has been around forever and generations of women have been using it adoringly. I never considered Pond's because it seemed so old fashioned. Also, because of media propanda, I let myself believe if it wasn't expensive, it couldn't be any good. That all changed when I stumbled upon Pond's Clarant B3 because I was looking for something to fade dark spots.
The first night I used this I totally forgot I used it. I woke up the next morning to wash my face and it felt like silk! I wondered why it felt so soft and smooth. Then I remembered the only thing that changed was using this creme! It applies so smoothly and I feel it sinks into my skin. I only need a small amount for my face and neck. My skin did not develop any clogged pores or breakouts. Definitely HG!
I must mention this is a heavier creme suitable for dry skin. There is also an herbal/green scent that may bother those with parfum allergies. I actually like the fresh scent and it fades quickly. There is also no sunscreen,so hopefully your foundation will have a sunscreen if you plan to use this in the morning. If this is too heavy, try the Clarant B3. I like both, but prefer the Crema S nourishing creme since my skin leans more dry. They have the 1.75 oz. jars available in the travel section at Wal-Mart for $1.47 which is great for those who want to try this for the first time but unsure how your skin will react. I actually love these mini sizes because not only is it great for travel but the product remains fresh! I'm so happy I gave Pond's products a try:)
I purchased Pond's moisturizing cream after experiencing such great results from Pond's cold cream. I find this to be a good moisturizer. However, because I have oily skin I do not think I can use it on a daily basis.
I rated this cream a 3 because I do not like jar packaging because I feel that constantly dipping your hand in the jar causes unnecessary bacteria in the jar. However, this effectively moisturizes your skin, has a light smell, and does not cause breakouts.
I love this product as my daily moisturizer. I use it everyday and only this specific one. The clairyany or Ponds in the red container left my skin dry and I do have dry skin somewhat. I buy the travel size of these about 4 at a time and they last forever. My mom and daughter also use this everyday and are faces look like a baby. If I ever run into the big jar I would definitely buy.
I just started using this about 2 weeks ago. I like it and the way it feels going on but I do think it's to heavy for my combo/oily skin during the daytime under makeup. I have been using Olay and will continue to during the day and use my Ponds at night. That might change come winter to... I did notice that mineral oil is the second ingredient in this product and that concerns me a bit... I don't what to believe... I'm a cosmetologist and I rember studing the skin and we had a discussion about good and bad ingredients and my instructor said to stay away from mineral oil. On the other hand I know Ponds has been around forever... Idk... The other thing that bothers me is the packaging... I have a love/hate with it... Hate that I have to stick my fingers in a jar... Love that I can get every dab of it out! If anyone has any feedback on mineral oil, I'd like to hear it!
Despite this being good and making the skin look youthful, it's far too heavy for me & made me break out.
I'll have to wait a decade or so to use this again? continued >>
During the winter I have extremely dry skin. This is my go-to moisturizer. I use it once in the morning, and again before I go to bed. It's a little "greasy" on the finger tips, but once you rub it in (not too much!) it seeps into the skin. There were a few times where I put too much on and had to dab it with a towel, but if you don't go wild and slop it on you'll be fine :) It holds well under makeup, and I feel my skin improved with use of this product.
Absolutely love this! I have dry skin and this feels very mousturizing and almost has a "cooling" effect on my skin.
I love this cream from ponds I usually use the pink jar the clearant B3... However I decided to change it up.. I like them both but I do like this cream a little better. Only because I noticed a few blemishes from the B3. This cream doesn't break me out.. I have actually noticed my skin evening out as far as redness and under eye circles.. and it makes my winter dry skin very moist and soft. I love it.. I have NO peeling like I usually do in the winter months!!!! only con is I wish it had a PUMP!!! Just make sure your hands are clean before touching product!!
