What Ponds White Beauty All-in-One BB+ Fairness Cream SPF 30 PA++Claims:
The first of its kind innovative beauty solutions from the Pond’s white beauty portfolio combines the dual benefit of instant coverage of spots as well as lightening skin within to help reveal perfect natural look.
This cream comes in a very feminine and sleek tube. The pink and white cover and the silver metallic cap surely do give it a very chic look. At the given price packaging is pretty well done. The cap is twist to open and the dispenser is like a nozzle. This makes the application easy.
I usually apply it in dots all over my face and then blend it nicely.
The color is beige with slight yellow undertones. It’s one color for all and I am not very happy with that. It’s one tone down my shade. People with medium complexion can rip out the right benefits from this shade. The texture of the cream is really thick yet creamy. You might need some effort in blending it in and you need to really work hard on some tough areas like around nose etc. Since I have an oily skin I don’t need a moisturizer underneath this cream but people with normal to dry skin might have to use it with a moisturizer
The staying power of the cream is pretty amazing. It stays out on me for about 5-6 hours in AC environment. Outside it tends to get oily and you need to blot it once in a couple of hours. It provides a medium coverage and a matte finish. It’s not meant to be used as a concealer but people with little imperfections can cover the spots with this one very well. It also contains SPF which makes it use under the sun as well though I am not counting on it much.
Overall at this price it’s a really good cream and one should really give it a try. Plus I like the glow it gives to the overall face.
