Love this! it is wonderful and keeps my skin very soft. I have combination skin and for the day time i just dab a tiny bit on the areas that tend to be dry (underneath my eyes, tzone area and mouth). I save the all over application for the night time. It doesn't break me out at all, matter of fact i really haven't had any skin breakouts since i started using this. I will definitely repurchase again.
Because of this product, I will look 30 when I'm 45. Thank you, Ponds.
I like the way this moisturizes. It really leaves my skin soft and smooth.
However, it left my skin very oily. I will definitely look into another moisturizer that leaves my skin less oily to wear during the day, but I will continue to use this as my night-time moisturizer.
This cream is epic! Super hydrating! A bit oily however if you don't wipe off excess.
I practically grew up with this product, so the smell - whcih is what most reviewers seem to be coomplaining about - doesn't bother me. It is an 'old' smell, but the product works. I find it soothing and hydrating, and it hasn't caused any breakouts. This product does, however, leave a slight oily sheen on your face, but I feel like that goes away pretty quickly. It's not something worth fretting over.
I think this is an okay moisturizer. It does what it's meant to do. I didn't realize that it had mineral oil in it (which I heard was bad for acne-prone skin) until after I had gotten home. I decided to try it anyway, and I haven't noticed any more acne than I usually get. I also wish that they didn't put any perfume in this product. I can tolerate the smell because it goes away shortly after when I apply it on my skin at night, but the added perfume is just pointless to me.
I wanted to like this moisturizer because it claimed it was suitable for sensitive skin, wouldn't clog pores, and was very hydrating. Also, I know somebody who has used this product for decades and their skin looks amazing.
When first using this product, I learned that a little goes a long way. Using too much would make my face look super, super oily.
Ponds didn't feel too heavy on my skin. although looking back it *was* a little heavier than other moisturizers I've used.
My biggest problem with this moisturizer was that it broke me out. I can't stand using products that break me out, because it takes me days to get my skin back to the way it was before and I have to pile on makeup to cover up the acne.
This product would be best for somebody who rarely (if ever) breaks out and aren't sensitive to mineral oil. It should definitely *not* be used by people who are acne prone or who have oily skin. If you no longer breakout but have dry, dehydrated skin, I would definitely recommend this to you. The price is unbeatable, and the tub of moisturizer will last months, even when used twice a day on a daily basis.
I've been looking for a good moisturizer, so i decided to try this. I liked it at first, but then a few days later it broke me out in cystic acne. I stopped using it and my face cleared up some. I decided to try it again just in case, and it broke me out again. I have acne prone skin with dry and oily spots. I'm still looking for that perfect moisturizer.
First off, let me start with the smell of this is so overpowering. It smells like someone dropped a full bottle of overly strong perfume into it. It made my skin look greasy and gross. I don't know how people deal with the smell of this because on your face you can smell it all day long.
My skin was getting dry over the winter months and I needed something in order to replenish moisture back into my skin. In all, my skin is very sensitive, reactive, and prone to blemishes when using the wrong products. After applying the Pond's dry cream my face was soft to the touch, but after 2 days of using it on my face, small bumps started to appear near my jawline (which didn't happen with my original Neutrogena Healthy Skin lotion with AHA). I felt that this cream was too heavy for my face and do not recommend this for those with sensitive/acne prone skin. I now use this cream on my body (since I do not want to put it to waste).
