POND'S® Luminous Finish BB+ Cream, Light, Review


I have not worn makeup in years. Though I do choose to use a primer every once in awhile.  I have a regular skin care routine which includes moisturizer, and sunscreen during the day.  So, when I received the Ponds BB cream, I actually worried I was going to hate it automatically, as I do not choose to wear makeup.  After reading it, I realized it had many benefits besides giving light coverage.  So, I gave it a try, and was really surprised.  It went on very smoothly as though I was just using my normal moisturizer, plus I did not have to add sunscreen on top of it as it has that included.  I noticed that it does provide a tinted coverage, lightly, which looks very natural, so that was another plus.  Then reading the packaging, I saw that there are many other benefits of this product over others like it, as well as the foundations I was used to in the past.  

Here are the highlights of them:

  • Visibly reduces the appearance of dark spots to even skin tone in two weeks
  • Superior* coverage of imperfections
  • Superior* visible dark spot reduction
  • Superior* non-greasy feel with a matte finish
  • Tone Perfecting Complex formulated with:
    • Vitamin E Acetate – an antioxidant known to protect and repair skin
    • Glycerin – helps increase hydration
  • Brightens and hydrates with lightweight moisture
  • SPF 15 protects against harmful UVA/UVB rays
  • Hypoallergenic and non-comedogenic
  • Reduces the number of beauty and skin care products required during a daily beauty regimen
