My mom bought this for my sister and I when we were like nine. I remember telling my father how well it would take care of my skin because the label said it contained "beauty oils". During the winter, nothing would remove the extreme flakes on my face and if I were desperate, I would use this as a moisturizer, though it left my face shining like the moon.
I wouldn't buy it because it contains mineral oil and mineral oil disrupts the skin from "breathing" or allowing the pores to be coated so air wouldn't cool it off. When my boyfriend and I started dating, he was using a body lotion with the second ingredients being mineral oil and he wondered why he was hot most of the time (it was the summer).
5 like this for removing eye makeup. I'm 29 and I can't be tugging at my eyelids anymore. I use this to gently remove makeup then tissue off and use my regular liquid cleanser with salicylic acid. I think this stuff is cheap and works well but I hate the scent. I like the price and how well this works.
Can I just say I get a decent amount of free high-end products from my place of employment this cold cream is just as effective if not better at removing hard-to-remove eye make-up from my face. I usually use it strickly for that purpose, but if I am lazy I use it eveywhere and it really does leave my face totally make-up free and clean. And I am combination to oily skin!
I use this cold cream every night before I go to bed. It's moisturizing but does not leave a nasty residue to my oily skin. This is great for deep cleaning and getting rid of the day's makeup... even waterproof mascara and eyeliner! A great classic.
This is a good addition to my skin care regimen. A few weeks ago I used Olay daily facials to clean of my eye make-up and the skin around my eyes being very dry and irritated. I used to use this when I was younger but got distracted by other beauty products and forgot all about. I have since re-purchased and it is the only thing I will use to remove my eye make-up from now on. It moisturized the dry skin will effectively removing all traces of make-up. Quick, easy, and effective the only downside is the smell and the greasy veil it leaves on my skin. However that is easily removed with a damp cloth. I will continue to buy.
this is the best makeup remover of all times. takes off everything.
i massage it in, remove all makeup gently with cotton wool or dab off with tissue. using a wringed-out warm muslin cloth after to gently rub the face removes some residue.
i finish with a splash of cold water .
I have combination skin and am prone to clogged pores. Ponds gets off all my makeup, and leaves my skin feeling clean and moisturized. At night, I put a thin layer on my skin, leave it to sit, and then use a damp washcloth to take it off.This is great stuff for people of my skin type, because it moisturizes the dry areas and the oily areas appropriately. My skin definitely looks smoother since using this. I doubt I'll ever stop using it.
Ok, so i'm a product Snob. I try High end, super expensive Products all the time.. A few weeks ago, i had a reaction to God knows Which product it was, and was told I couldnt use any of my cleansers that I had until the reaction cleared up. I bought Ponds to use in the interim because of how gentle it is, I remember my grandmother using it, and 2 people today asked me what i was using on my face because it is Glowing and Dewy... I was almost embarassed to say ponds cold cream!!! I am shocked. After all that $ spent on expensive cleansers, the one thing that is making my skin glow is the one thing i've walked past at the Drug store a million times in my life- no wonder this is a classic. No wonder my 85 year old grandmother doesnt have any wrinkles or scars.
Basically I use it at night, to take off all my makeup. Then i use the Olay Daily facials Cloth - soaked in Hot water, To take some of the Cold Cream off.... then my moisturizer and eye cream... and to bed I go! I wake up with such dewy skin... I love it!! And for the price you cannot beat it!!
1. Checked online and all ingredients are non-comedogenic and should not cause reaction.
3. Saves money so you don't have to moisturize.
4. Use much less water. All you do is tissue off. I use a warm washcloth to remove it. Less greasy feel.
6. I use it on my feet and elbows at night to keep them soft.
7. My dad actually likes the stuff.
8. Can get practically everywhere.
9. been around a long time.
10. Less chemicals then the other face washes.
1. Holy Mary Mother of God does this stuff stink!!! My mother said I smell like an old woman. LOL
I think I'm going to love this. I have dry skin and need to get away from my bar soap cleansing routine. I have noticed since I am now in my 30's that my fine lines around my eyes are getting deeper, so I thought I would give this a try. I applied it to dry face and rubbed it in allover then removed it with a warm damp washcloth. I really hope I love this and It did moisturize but I also finished with a moisurizer and then slept on it, and my face looks really refreshed this am and my lines were less noticeable..
