What Ponds says about the Product :

After researching with over 20,000 genes, the Pond’s Institute identified a specific gene that significantly affects melanin production. Through this discovery, our most effective skin lightening formulation containing the revolutionary GenWhite™ formula has been created. 
 
Pond’s White Beauty Day Cream, with GenActiv™ Formula, adapts to your unique skin to lighten skin from within, fade dark spots from the source, and evens skin tone for spot-less complexion in just 7 days. What’s amazing about it is that the product works differently on each person. So, if there are areas on your skin that need extra help and contain more melanin, the formula concentrates on lightening and brightening those exact problem spots. 
 
It is the world’s first non-oily, matte cream with sunscreen systems. With SPF 20 and PA++, it protects against both UVB and UVA rays. A product so powerful and special, 9 out of 10 women see the superior results of this day cream.

 

 

My take on the Product

Ponds White Beauty Daily Spot Less Whitening Day cream comes in a beautiful pink tub packaging which is pleasing on the eyes but a little bulky. The heavy glass tub, the asymmetrical shape and the size of the cream makes it a little inconvenient to use, especially to carry around during traveling. The packaging contains another plastic lid inside to prevent the cream smearing on the inside of the outer lid which again makes the whole thing cumbersome to use. It is so much easier to just use a pump dispenser! Nevertheless, it does look pretty sitting on the dresser.

The cream is a very pale pink in color and has a slightly foamy texture which reminds me of the vanishing cream my grandmother used to use. The texture is slightly dry and doesn’t have a lot of slip so one needs to work quickly in blending this on the face. If you’re someone who applies cream by putting dots all over the face, you’ll find that its a little difficult to blend. I just apply the cream in 2 swipes across the cheeks and one across the nose and forehead and blend it quickly. Slightly damp skin after toning is the best to aid blending. I’m talking so much about blending here because I recommended this cream to my cousin sister who later told me that she finds it a little difficult to blend as she first applies it in dots all over the face.

The best thing for me about this cream was the matte finish after blending and the brightening effect. The cream leaves a slight white cast on the skin which is not too obvious but does give a glow. The matte finish makes it perfect for oily skin. The overall look is very neat and clean and on good skin days, I can just wear this with some compact, concealer and gloss when going out. Even though its not tinted, I feel like it evens out my skin and minimizes the pores and imperfections slightly. The matte finish keeps the skin oil-free for some time but I begin to see some shine on my T-zone after about 2-2.5 hours if I do not set with powder. It also contains SPF 20a s well as PA++ so one can easily skip sunscreen while wearing this (if not exposed much to sun). Overall, I think this is a good day cream for oily skin not just because of the matte finish but the brightening effect too. Those who don’t like wearing foundation everyday but feel the need for that little something to perk the skin up should give this a try!

The cream has a very classic Ponds fragrance which I don’t particularly like nor dislike. As for the whitening claim, I used it for over 3 weeks and I did not feel any difference in my skin tone, it just feels brighter when I have applied the cream but there is no long term change.

  1. i hve dis but it makes my T-ZONE very oily…..it also resulted in some breakouts………nothing other than lotus 3 in 1 matte sunblock proved to b efficient for me at the daytime

  2. very long back, Pond’s used to have a product called Varnish cream… the texture was the same, and the mattifying effect too….
    you review sounds convincing for oily skin!

  3. I have used it long back, maybe they have re launched it with some fancier packaging. This is not at all impressive. This leaves a white cast and is very hard to blend…
