Lazy day makeup routines are the best, why? You end up looking good in a short amount of time instead of putting a whole hog of makeup on your face, kind of like a ‘no-makeup’ look. Well tell you what, I’ve got the perfect product for you. Read on and you’ll get why. 😉
My Take On Pond’s White Beauty Translucent Pinkish White Glow Powder Finish Day Cream:
Before I start off, is it just me or does ‘Korean Ginseng’ and ‘Saffron’ sound really fancy? It’s probably just me, hahaha. The texture of this product is like a smooth and soft cream. During blending, it feels ‘wet’ and it’s really easy to blend into the skin. Like it says, immediately after blending the product into your skin, it turns into a powder like texture on a face. It’s a beautiful matte, not too powdery or cakey finish with a translucent, pinkish and white glow. It settles onto my skin well and it adapts to my skin almost like how a CC Cream would. It doesn’t make me super pale or dark but just evens out my skin tone and makes it look very natural too.
You don’t need to worry about confusing ways to apply this or if it may clump or look weird. I usually apply this after my sunscreen because my sunscreen just makes me look like a walking bucket full of sweat. I apply the cream all over my face using my hands and fingers and the outcome turns out fine.This also doesn’t clog the pores, dries the skin, accentuate dry patches or make you look like a pale ghost. However this isn’t foundation or BB Cream either so it won’t do what a those mentioned products usually does. It’s a day cream so it’s pretty much a skincare item, no more nor less. And just to ease your worries a little, it’s totally suitable for all skin types so just let free of your worries girls.
However, this feels super lightweight on the skin and it gives your skin a healthy, pretty and pinkish translucent glow. I had it on the whole day and I barely felt like it was there , I also had tons of people telling me that my skin looked really healthy and that I was glowing a little.This is pretty long-lasting as I noticed that even after 4-5 hours, my skin still looked matte and I still had that beautiful glow. However, I’m not too sure what happens if I sweat. Oops, sorry there guys because recently I’ve been cooped up in a class room and I’m pretty much only leaving my house for school and going home straight after.
This also has a slight fragrance to it but it goes away after it is applied onto the skin and blended out. It’s a floral and berry sort of fragrance, it’s not too strong but light and refreshing. It’s something that won’t irritate your nostrils but then again, I know fragranced products are not everyone’s cup of tea. But I do love sniffing this product every once in a while. My skin didn’t feel weird, irritated, I had no breakouts and no weird skin conditions or rashes so I guess you could say it’s deemed safe to use!
The packaging is tiny, slim and pretty simple. It’s light and is to carry which makes it a perfect makeup bag essential and it’s got a sturdy cap so it’s safe to just chuck into your bag for travelling and not have to worry about spilling it.
I found this really hard to find though as it’s always overlooked because it’s placed way at the bottom of the shelves and I can’t easily get Pond’s product I where I live so it’s like a hunt but it’s worth the hunt I’d say. The price is super cheap and affordable for just 20gm of product and even though it may not last too long, it isn’t expensive at all to just pick up a new one.
