Pond’s White Beauty Pinkish-White Glow Lightening Facial Foam

Pond’s White Beauty Pinkish-White Glow Lightening Facial Foam

Hello Gorgeous Readers!

I believe you have been well. Today I am going to review Pond’s White Beauty Pinksih White Glow Face Wash, though the name is too big and too descriptive but it sure does work.
Product Description:
Your natural fairness is hidden by a layer of dark skin cells- Pond’s White Beauty Face Wash is enriched with Pro-Vitamin B3 which helps remove these cells to give your complexion a pinkish White Glow. 
Why I like it.
It comes in a neat white colored tube with pink top and flip cap which is very easy to use. Just like all Pond’s Products it contains floral fragrance to it. The texture of Pond’s White Beauty face wash is creamy and thick but its very easy to wash off. Just a little drop of product is enough to wash off complete face as it leathers really well. It instantly brighten my face and removes dirt and oil right away. I think I like it more than Pond’s Flawless White Natural Gentle Exfoliating Face Wash.  I have been using it since last month and I did not encounter any kind of break outs with it.  It even control oil from my face not for very long but still keeps my face matte for two hours. The best part it does not take away all the moisture from my skin.
All in all its a good affordable face wash I will definitely repurchase this one. 
 

It retails for PKR 125 for 50ml and PKR 230 for 100ml and easily available on all cosmetics shops across Pakistan.

I am so sorry for posting this late. I went to the opening ceremony of Tony & Guy and Ponds Skin Center on 17th of December. It was wonderful event I love how they merged and came up with a place to take care of hair, skin n nails all under one roof. I love the Facials of Ponds Skin Center, I reviewed their services at my blog once. What I loved about the event that everything was greatly organized. Enough with the words here have a look at some pictures and you will find press release in the end.

TONI&GUY-Karachi in collaboration with POND’S officially launched their new Flagship Salon and Skin Center in Clifton at the Dolmen City Mall.

H Mandviwalla, Minister of State for Finance and Investment and Chairman Board of Investment, Mr. Ehsan Malik, Chairman Unilever Pakistan Ltd., Ms. Saeeda Mandviwalla, CEO TONI&GUY-Karachi and Mr. Francis Campbell, British Deputy High Commissioner to Pakistan.

The luxurious TONI&GUY-Karachi and POND’S Skin Center – the state-of-the-art salon and skin center is the first of its kind in the world, where two international brands have joined hands to bring to the Pakistani consumer, the best skin and hair care services.

Pond’s White Beauty Lightening Toner!

One cannot possibly deny the importance of toner in their
beauty regime. It is one of the must have thing it maintains the PH balance of
your skin. Toner reduces excess oil from your skin, minimizes the pores. There
are different kinds of toners available in the market make sure you pick the
right one for you; else it will harm your skin. 

I have combination skin (normal to oily) no acne and no blemishes.
I have been using Pond’s White Beauty lightening toner since ages. I purchased
it for Rs: 225 from a superstore. I try my level best to use the toner twice a
day after shower n before sleeping but I don’t really do it regularly because
of my super duper laziness. 

 This is a transparent
toner with a mild fragrance to it. When I started using it, at first I didn’t see
any difference but yes with the passage of time n regular use there were
results. The texture of my skin changed & it was pretty smooth. It reduces oiliness
from my face giving it smooth look.  What
I don’t like that it tightens my pores temporarily I really need something good
for long time tightening, Suggestions are welcome.   Overall
it’s a good toner with reasonable price; moreover it is available at most of
the cosmetic shops. 

Tell me guys do you use toner?

My Facial Experience at Pond’s Skin Centre

When I made my blog I planned that one thing I would do is to make posts about the best pampering places in Karachi and Hyderabad (as I visit that place often). Who does not want to pamper themselves with a facial to get their skin into right shape?  Here is the first post of the Best Pampering Places. Today I am going to share my experience of getting facial and pedicure done at Pond’s Skin Centre at Forum Mall. I had a complementary voucher of facial which I mentioned here and I went to redeem it and after getting the facial I had to right a review of how great it was (Pond’s Didn’t ask me to do this). I was welcomed very warmly by cosmetologist Shahida Zia and was taken into facial room which was very neat well equipped, soft music were playing with aroma therapy candles. Let me tell you guys this was the first time I was getting facial done from there and after a long time too. After the skin examination the attendant suggested that I should have The Red Velvet Facial ( suitable for my sensitive skin) and Eye Treatment which actually shocked me. I have never ever had any eye treatment in my entire life nor I had any complaints of dark circles under my eyes. This time it was different as it is impossible for me have a proper 6 to 8 hour of sleep session due to my little baby and dark circles have started to appear under my eyes.. *Sigh*


Facial Treatment: Lets come to the facial it began with Cleansing, Toning, Ex foliate, steam and extraction of white n black heads, use of high frequency machine to kill bacteria and Face mask  along with shoulder, hand and foot massage. It was really amazing and much more than I expected I am not sure which products she used over me though I even asked her but she said its all imported.


Eye Treatment: The eye treatment began with eye cleansing, application of serum followed by eye lifting massage and then eye mask.
The complete session took one hour and twenty minutes. I loved the eye treatment and the massage was super relaxing.

Pedicure: I choose to get the routine pedicure as I was getting late and didn’t have any more time. The attended understood and gave me super duper quick and nice pedicure with a little massage and  really nice OPI nail paint.


My final verdict: It is one of the best value facial great for people who have sensitive skin like me. My skin felt tighter, brighter and yes it really glowed for days. The attendant also recommended me the creams which I should use every day to keep my skin in right shape. Will I go there again?  Yes! One thing I forgot to mention The prices.. eeekkk!
Facial cost Rs: 2500
Eye Treatment cost: 900

Pond’s Flawless White Naturals Day Cream!

Pond’s Flawless White Naturals Day Cream

Flawless White Naturals Day
Cream!
Hello Readers how have you been? Here
is another product review of Pond’s Flawless White Naturals Day Cream.  Please don’t think that I am
someone who wants to be fairer I love my skin color but these days I am bit
worried about marks at my skin. I have been using this cream full time for four weeks now and I like the results. I must say that texture of cream is so light
and soft. When applied I never feel that I am wearing any kind of cream on my
face its very light weight. I hate those creams and moisturizers which gives me
greasy feeling and makes my face look oily. Pond’s Day Cream has got very soft
and nice smell to it which is kind of floral and fades away when applied on
face. The cream gets absorbed into skin in no time and gives me nice
smooth look which is so not oily and greasy. The jar is pretty looks good at my
dressing but it is really heavy as it is made of glass. I hate to take it with
me when I travel as it takes a lot of space in my makeup bay. I don’t feel that
my skin color has lightened but it has enhanced with its usage and yes the
marks/ spots at my checks, caused by pimples, have noticeably
reduced. The price of pond’s Flawless White Naturals is Rs: 975. Overall I like
this cream a lot I will definitely purchase it, at the moment it’s the only cream which
gives me non greasy and matte look.
Here is what Pond’s
claim about product:
Pond’s Flawless White Natural day
cream contains the wonder of Camellia leaf extract. Found in the foothills of
the Himalayas, this precious extract contains powerful antioxidants to fight
against the causes of skin darkening. After years of research, Pond’s Flawless
White Naturals day cream, containing the extraordinary Camellia leaf extract,
is specially formulated to lighten skin and reduce dark spots. 
  • Contains
    Camellia Leaf Extract

your skin.

Blogger Meet UP Day!

I told you guys that I was
invited by Pond’s to attend their Beauty Meet up Event at Pond’s Skin Centre
there was lunch as well at café Aylanto (you can read the invitation story over
here). As In Pakistan there are very less events organized for bloggers I
thought that it would be nice for me to attend this kind of event, also since
it consists of other beauty bloggers and journalists, I was looking forward
to meet them.
Anyway, we reached at café
yes I was the last one to grab the seat starters were already there. I ordered
Delicious Rocket Chicken and finished it all up. The meet up was very casual
that was the best part of it. It was just a beauty and blogging chit chat
between Pond’s Employees, Beauty Bloggers and Fashion Journalists. After the
desserts we went to Ponds Skin Center at Forum Mall. Where
Cosmetologists Shahida Zia explained us about Pond’s New Range of face washes
and Exfoliates.

 After that there was an amazing pampering secession of
hairstyling, makeup, manicure and pedicures. Here you can see the stylists are doing their magic.
Have a look at the pretty faces after getting their make up done!

In the end pictures and
interviews were taken by Pond’s and we all left very happy with a voucher of a complimentary
facial.
Some other day I will post about my experience of getting facial at
Ponds Skin Center.
