I am a huge lotion fan. I am constantly in search of my HG lotion. That’s how I found this one 🙂
I bought this because of its ‘Triple Vitamin’ claim and because I thought Pond’s was a reputed brand, and thus it won’t be so bad.
This lotion is a triple vitamin moisturizing one, with vitamins B3, E and C.
It retails for Rs.109 for 300ml (10.15 fl.oz.)
Water, mineral oil, glycerine, cetearyl alcohol, niacinamide, sodium cetearyl sulphate, dimethicone, glyceryl stearate, paraffin, fragrance, microcrystalline wax, cellulose gum, methylparaben, disodium EDTA, DMDM hydantoin, propylparaben, tocopheryl acetate, benzophenone-3, BHT, sodium ascorbyl phosphate, simethicone.
Directions For Use:
Use daily after bath all over your body. Result – soft, smooth and radiant skin that leaves you feeling beautiful all over.
My Take on Pond’s Triple Vitamin Moisturizing Lotion:
I honestly did not like this at all. It doesn’t really harm my skin, but it has nothing going for it that would make me buy it again. The smell is a very cloying mix of the typical ‘Pond’s smell’ and something else I cannot quite place, emphasis on cloying, it isn’t a bad smell, per se, but it is highly irritating.
This also contains Vitamins B3, E and C, and with all that, you’d generally expect something that works even remotely well.
The consistency is almost runny. This is actually one of the nice parts about this lotion. It does not leave behind any shine or a greasy feeling. It disappears into the skin without much fuss. It doesn’t moisturize much. It just disappears, and does nothing! The cap is an ordinary flip cap and it is quite tight. However, the whole pink top itself is rather loose and will come off if you try carrying this around. They also make a smaller bottle, but I assume that will have the same issue. So, I doubt you can carry even the smaller bottle.
• A little will go a long way. If this works for someone, they will surely find it lasts for a long time.
• Good consistency.
• Leaves no greasy shine or slippery feel once it is used.
• Did not irritate my skin or make me break out.
• Does not moisturize at all! I have dry-ish skin and my sister has normal skin. It didn’t do a thing, even for her. Do people have oily body skin??? ?:)
• The cloying fragrance.
• Since Unilever tests on animals, their products aren’t cruelty-free.
• Loose fitting pink top, cannot be carried around due to this.
I really like this lotion for the fact that it does not leave behind any greasy or sticky feeling, but skin is left pretty smooth. However, this smooth effect goes away within 10 minutes or so, leaving my skin pretty much like what it was before. This is my hand with the lotion rubbed in. As you can see, it doesn’t have any oily sheen. The white areas are because of natural light 😛
It doesn’t make sense to me, to make a product like this, which is of absolutely no use, and then price it so low. People (like me) will buy it once, banking on Pond’s reputation and all that, and then will not buy it again, irrespective of whether they price it low or not. Even if it was priced at Rs. 50 for 300ml, I will never buy this again, since it does nothing at all. It makes no sense to buy a lotion that doesn’t work, whatever the price! Perhaps Pond’s decided that the sales they generate from people being lured by the price (really, Pond’s?? 🙄 ) will be more profitable than if they actually made a good product and priced it higher. I would rather pay double, triple or even more for the same 300ml and end up with something that actually works!
Will I Buy This Again?
