I felt good when BB creams were launched in India and replaced classical but heavy and cakey foundations. Finally a thing that works like foundation but gives the benefit of a day cream. Pond’s White Beauty BB+ Fairness Cream is my first BB cream ever! My skin is in so much love with this. Find out how in my today’s review!
Price: Rs. 140/- for 18 g and also available in 9 g which comes for Rs. 75/-
Shelf Life: 24 months
Pond’s BB cream comes a sleek white colored tube with a silver screw cap. I like this kind of packaging which is simple yet attractive. It is very travel friendly, doesn’t take up space inside purse.
My Experience: I’m not much of a foundation girl and it makes my face cakey and prone to breakouts. That’s when this BB cream comes to rescue. It is creamy in consistency and smells okay. It’s tinted and suits my dusky skin very well. The coverage it offers is medium which pretty well hides little imperfections. Don’t expect it to cover big marks. It gives a dewy glow after application. It evens out my skin and it looks so much better. The matte effect it gives is good for oily skin. Moisturizing before applying is a must or else it can make face cakey. It needs to be blended properly and gives a white cast which vanishes in few minutes. It contains SPF 30 PA++ which saves me another layer of sunscreen.
It accentuates pores on face which is a con and to avoid this, I scrub my face and remove whiteheads regularly. It stays long for 6 hours in winters and in summers it stayed on me for 4-5 hours. I apply loose powder on top of it to make it stay longer. It doesn’t oxidize unlike other tinted creams. A little amount is needed for every application so it goes a long way. This is my second tube and glad I got this!
● Suits every skin tone.
● Has a medium coverage which covers

Final Word: All in all, this BB cream proved to be good for my skin. It evens skin, hides small marks, brightens up my face and stays longer so I highly recommend this! You’ll never get disappointed with this.
Rating: 4.5/5 (-0.5 for highlighting pores)
