Who does not love to have a soft, supple, and silky smooth skin? But what about getting such buttery soft skin during the dry days of winter? Is it really possible? Well, with the new and amazing Pond’s Silk Cream, it is absolutely possible. This winter I have already tried a lot of products and this cream is the best one among them. I am already on my second bottle of it and have used it extensively. So now, I feel that it is the right time to review the product. Read on below to know more about it.
About The Brand Pond’s
Pond’s is a well-known name in the Indian beauty and skincare industry to which we get introduced right in our childhood. And who can forget the “Googly Woogly Wooksh …” advertisement which was like an anthem song for winters? But before exploring the product, here are a few words about the brand itself:
“Pond’s has bloomed since 1846 to become the world’s leading skincare brand. With the birth of The Pond’s Institute in the 1990s (today a global network of 700 scientists and skin specialists), Pond’s firmly established itself as one of the world’s leading expert in advanced skincare research and diagnostics. With over 200 patents, The Pond’s Institute introduced many firsts (GenWhite technology, Intelligent Pro-Cell Complex, Activated Carbon) in skin cleansing, skin lightening, and age management. Every Pond’s product comes with a fascinating ‘skinnovation‘ story and insights gleaned from years of scientific research. Our solutions are specially formulated for ever-evolving skin care needs and concerns across different life stages, changing lifestyles, and environments. Pond’s is dedicated to bring out the best in your skin – always strong inside and beautifully soft outside.”

Pond’s Silk cream comes in a cute little plastic tub, which is milky white in color with a hint of blue in it. It is so beautiful that I don’t even feel like touching it and making it dirty. There is an outer white carton on which all necessary information regarding the product is mentioned. The tub is quite sturdy and opaque. Hence, you cannot see how much product is left inside. It comes in small as well as big packs and you can carry it everywhere without any spillage.
Look And Feel
The cream is pure white in color and feels like butter or even softer than that. It is rich, super light, and very creamy, which glides over the skin literally like ‘silk’. It gets absorbed instantly into the skin. The smell of the product is mild and pleasant. It is more or less similar to the usual smell of other Pond’s products.

My Experience About Pond’s Silk Cream
I have oily skin and I don’t indulge in face creams, which are very moisturizing. But during winter, my face goes quite dry. I could not tolerate the dryness of the skin and one night I applied this cream and went off to sleep. I was praying not to get a breakout the next morning and to my surprise, my skin was awesomely repaired. It took away all the dryness and did not cause me any breakout.
I have been using it over a month now. Initially, I used to apply it all over my face and later, only to those areas where I had dry skin. Though I was a bit concerned at first because of the long list of chemicals mentioned in the packaging but the effects are quite impressive, I must say. The results are pretty quick and I haven’t faced any skin problems (breakout, rashes, or redness of any sort) till date. The cream made my skin baby soft just within a week. Believe me, you will be really tempted to touch your cheeks again and again after using it.
I apply the cream only during the night time as my skin tends to become greasy when applied during the daytime. I would recommend you to apply only to the dry areas for oily-skinned people. People with normal skin and dry skin can apply it to the entire face. I even apply it to my palms before sleeping and I cannot ask for softer skin at this price. However, the ’24-hour moisture lock’ claim is not true. It truly keeps the skin soft and hydrated for a long span of time but you will need to reapply if you have very dry skin.
