Pond’s Matte Perfect Face Wash Review

Pond’s Matte Perfect Face Wash

I used to hate ponds’ till a couple of years ago… anything i tried; be it talcum powder, to oil control creams to cold creams to anti ageing cream my mum used. I ended up hating them all until a few years ago ponds somewhat improved the quality of their products, started making good face washes and even changed their packaging..

I still didn’t have the heart to use them until i saw this face wash. I realy liked the sleek packaging .I was basically looking for a small tube of a decent face wash that could go in my toileteries bag.. a face wash that would serve its purpose while I am travelling..
The size and the price did it for me and i finally bought a ponds product after so many years of ponds boycotting 😛

Price rs. 60 for 50g. Shelf life:2 years.

Extrrrremelyyy foamy. I get scared when I look at my face whilst washing with this face wash.The tiny amount in the picture i all that is required to get shaving cream type foam 😛

The fragrance is a cross between talcum powder like fragrance and some fresh pleasant one. But is very light and i quite like it.

Pros of Ponds matte perfect face wash

• It does all what it claims. ALL.
• It really removes excess oil and leaves a matte finish
• Its my travel face wash and imagine it removes allll the possible leftover/smudged makeup, dirt , grime, oil , that mumbai’s humid weather leaves you with if you are out travelling.
• It instantly refreshes me. My skin feels realy clean and alive.
• Skin feels soft and smooth
• The extremely micro granules are good and micro-enough for a daily usage. You can hardly feel them ,yet it feels they are mildly scrubbing. Im very happy with the idea of little by little scrubbing of skin rather than abrasing my skin at one go. Anyways that’s me. 😛
• It never broke me out. Never aggravated my minor acne that I temporarily get due to dandruff.
• Controls oil for the longest time possible.
• Fragrance is pleasant and lingers for quite some time, adding to the refreshing feeling.
• I like the size and sleek-sturdy packaging due to which i can fearlessly put it in my vanity pouch in my bag.
• Very economical since its inexpensive and little goes a long way.it will last till eons.
• Easily available

Cons of Ponds matte perfect face wash

• I HATE foaming face washes. I cannot bear shaving cream type lather. But since i ended up liking this face wash a lot im ready to deal with it. 😛
However,its my personal opinion and may not be a con for many
• Can be a little drying in winters, but can be taken care by any normal moisturiser. And anywaysways winters have long gone now :/
• IMO it could be slightly drying for combination skin ppl in summers too but its perfect for oily skin.

My rating for this product: :-* :-* :-* :-*

Would I recommend. For hyper oily skin? Oh yes!! For combination skin . oh yes its good if you want all the extra oil to go and your moisturiser is handy to take care of the rest. 🙂

    1. jigyasa for misturise try st.ives if its available at ur side.. its one ofthe best and ver reasonable… concealer mac is the best ..ull haveto go there and take according to ur skin type….

    2. Himalaya one is not for dry skin jigyasa.. stop using it.. it ‘ll dry out ur skin even more.. its best suited for oily skin types.. For face washes try creamy ones like Ponds(green 1 or meant for dry skin) & lakme, i’m using VlCC 1.. thts also gud..use rose water toner.. fab india,biotique or vlcc.. all r gud for dry skin.. St Ives is gud.. i’m also gonna buy it once i c it here anywhere.. anythng else 😛
