Oh, heavens! I was NOT going to jump on the BB Cream band wagon. I didn’t have any real interest in the product. Nor, did I need another product to add to the variety of my collection. Then, I end up getting samples in magazines. I find coupons that I get reimbursed the cost of my BB Cream purchase. And now, I get Pond’s Luminous Finish BB+ to try out…
Yes, Pond’s has been around for years. Yet in the last couple of years, they have upped their game to appeal to a whole new generation. I’m hoping I can get you on the band wagon too because, I think Pond’s products are worth your consideration. I ask you to take a closer peek at these BB+ Creams… I won’t recommend that you use this as your sole provider for SPF protection. However, a broad spectrum of 15 is a good start. I found some of the natural ingredients (ginger, zinc oxide, potassium and iron) to be a surprise…a pleasant surprise… However, sometimes natural ingredients can mean a shorter shelf life. I don’t know how old these creams are but, I see I should use them up before next March… The tubes are well-packaged. Not only are they pretty but I like that it is easy to squeeze out the product, rather than stick my fingers in a jar. The tops twist off firmly and the hole is small. I don’t think I’m going to end up with cream goo all over my vanity…Pond’s BB+ Cream comes in only two shades: Light and Medium. There isn’t any doubt which one is right for me. However, I’m sad that darker-skin beauties don’t get an opportunity to work with this… The light is an awesome match! The cream is so creamy and sooth to apply. I was able to build up the coverage to disguise any spots or redness with complete ease. Even though it did set nicely on my skin, I had to use a translucent finishing powder to keep it from being overly dewy. It may be OK for some folks to have that dewy glisten however, I don’t like it. It wasn’t heavy, I just like a matte finish to my complexion. But then it DOES say it is ‘luminous’.
You can find Pond’s BB+ Cream at Walmart, Target, Ulta and drugstores. Occasionally, you can find it in grocery stores. I have noticed that some of the grocers will carry just the medium if they carry it at all.
I gotta know if you have tried Pond’s BB+ Cream and what you think about it. Is it something you like?
