I LOVE the blue regular ponds moisturizer, and i have a couple dark spots on my face so this sounded perfect. i was so so so SOO wrong. Doesnt do anyhting to my dark spots, got a 2 huge and PAINFUL cysts on my chin after using this for about 3 days in a row, caused extreme burning and itching when applied, and it doesnt have the mostiurizing power that the regular one does. I got the sample size at target so its no big deal though..just want to warn everyone.
I got a trial size from target to try it at first ($1 for 1.5oz) and i really liked it. I have severly acne prone skin..so severe that none of the moisturizers ,except Cerave lotion suits my skin and i get acne every time i try a new lotion..After i end up with acne i get back to Cerave lotion..because thats what simply moisturizes and doesnt cause any breakouts. But after using the Cerave lotion almost for about an year..my skin turned ashy..thats right..greyish toned..So i got this one after reading reviews/posts pointing out the benefits of Niacinamide...and to my luck i found a trial size for dollar..its no waste in trying right! After trying it..i really liked it..and then went and bought the bigger one. It helped my dark spots to lighten a bit..and my complexion didnt get any lighter but my face looks radiant. thats what i wanted moreover. Now whenever i go to walmart or target, i couldnt find them, so i just order from drugstore.com(they have free shipping for $25) and im happy with it. If its a harsh winter..i can feel a slight dryness on my skin..then i use witch hazel toner prior and im sooo good to go. This is my HG moisturizer.. :)
This is hands down my favorite moisturizer of all time. It works for me all year round; except that I modify the amount of product applied depending on how my skin feels. From usage the number of sun spots I've gotten has dramatically decreased. I no longer get any! (in conjunction with SPF too) I use this morning just before foundation and at night after all my skin treatments. It helps keep my skin supple, soft and clean. Very simple moisturizer but well worth trying it out!
My only problem with this product would be the container. I LOATHE jars. To help prevent contamination, I always use a clean scoop or qtip and take product from the lid, instead of digging into the jar. I also prefer to use the smaller jars (I buy mine at Target for around a dollar) so that I am constantly opening fresh jars instead of using the same jar every six months or so. The tiny size lasts about 2-3 months.
This is a great product which I find really helps with my melasma. I also like its moisturizing properties. I use it as a night cream.
Not many products have a powerful active ingredient as the second item on their list of ingredients! I discovered niacinimide while using NIA 24, which is also a great product for melasma, however it is like 85$ a tube. So, getting a comparable result for 11$ is great in my book. I really like the smell, which others have commented on, it is a lotion/creamy smell. Granted i adore creamy smells. The consistency is very rich and lubricating, I like to massage it on my face. Personally I like mineral oil based creams and avoid creams with alot of silicones in them (not easy to do since they are in everything now). Definitely recommend this cream for people with melasma.
I love this product my skin tone is more even and I am loving it!! I'm using it along with "Rejuveness" they make a great time. I'm in love!! Oh and smells great.
I use both this and the Rejuveness version, that I purchased at Target, in the travel sizes for $2 each. You get a decent amount with these too. I just wish the full sized versions were cheaper.
This one has evened out my skins tone and texture and helps clear up those dark purple spots left by acne.
This products may be unhealthy.
I been using pond's clarant B3- normal to dry skin for six weeks and my skin has improved, I have dry brown skin but since I'm using this product my skin is soft and lighter
Faded ALL of my dark spots in 1 week!!! I love this and can't believe something so cheap could work wonders. I only buy the travel size ($1.49 USD) because I like to keep in it my cosmetic bag. I use it every morning as a moisturizer and since it leaves my face slightly matte/dewy to the touch, it works wonderfully as a foundation primer!
I love this product. I bought the trial size on a whim. I love the texture of it. The normal to dry skin version of this is perfect for my combination sensitive skin. It really does brighten the skin/ clear dark marks. I haven't found it to break me out or cause rashes (I'm eczema prone and acne prone). I also have tried the oily skin version and it will make your face look super matte. but, I find it not moisturizing enough as the weather cools down. I live in an area with a large Hispanic population so I can find this cream in most stores at a great price. Here three sizes are sold 50g ($1.50), 100g ($4 dollars) and the 200g jar ($8-9). I own the 50g and 100g jars. The only things I can think I don't like about this product are that the smell is quite strong (smells ok, just strong) and I don't believe this has sunscreen in it.
Hmm, I have mix-emotion on this product. I really like the texture and scent of this cream. However, it stings a bit when I use it alone on a cleaned face. As for the result, it's not super amazing on fading dark spots, but works well as a daily moisturizer.
