BB creams are one popular trend in makeup products these days.
Many brands are hastily engaged in making their own BB cream but does meet the original
idea for what the BB creams stands for. The above sentence matches exactly with
the new ponds BB cream. I would term it as tinted moisturiser rather than a BB cream.
I dont know what was Ponds thinking while removing their original tinted moisturiser
(which was quite good than BB) from
shelves months before and replacing it with a brand new name with BB tag.
Atleast the former one had considerably three shades compared to the BB cream
which comes in just one shades.. Really !?!
Why do few big companies act as lazy bum for adding more shades?
Instant natural coverage
Light, non-oily texture
Lightens from within epidermis level
Reduces dark spots
Evens skin tone
SPF 30 PA++ protects from UVA, UVB and visible light
Some good points on this ponds bb creams are like nice packaging, available in
two sizes, economical pricing, creamy texture, spf content. Though its creamy, it takes
effort to blend since its thick, instead of blending in spreading motion you can tap it gently
with fingers to spread. Due to spf 30, it makes a perfect day wear base but in flash photos
it shows up as pale(whitish cast) skin which is a disappointment. It last more than half a day
and gives a matte finish. Also it feels heavy on skin.While i feel garnier BB cream is much
better since skin feels hydrated than this.
As an ardent user of previous ponds tinted moisturiser, i can very well say both are very
very similar. Also it doesnt conceal any skin spots or dark circle which are basics in a BB
cream,which this lack. The one shade concept is a huge disappointment since even after
5mins after application, it doesnt adapt on skin to our skin color maybe it does
on fairer skin tones but wouldnt suit for medium to dusky skintones.
I had high hopes regarding this bb cream and it dint fare my expectations.
As you can in see in the below swatch of after photo it looks like it makes my skin brighter
but looking unnatural in real life.
