Summer is only a few weeks away but my skin looks like it’s suffering from it already. And yes, I’m talking about the dreaded dark spots lingering on my face.
Don’t get me wrong, I apply my dose of SPF before I apply makeup but it seems like it’s not enough anymore. The environment is getting harsher these days – I can feel it, my skin also feels it. I’m only out in the sun when I commute to and from work but the effect on my skin is getting more drastic each time I’m outside. It’s quite frustrating since my skin tone gets uneven and the dark spots stand out in my face like it’s saying “Hello, world! I’m here!” Ugh.
Quite interestingly, POND’S just launched their new White Beauty Spotless Rosy White Day Cream for women who are suffering the same predicament as mine. According to the product description, it has Advanced Vitamin B3+ Technology that helps boost skin’s natural whitening ability from within. It fights 10 of today’s toughest skin problems (including darks spots and uneven skin tone just to name a few) for a rosy, white glow. Since it became available in Sample Room, I decided to give it a try, hoping that the cream delivers what it promises.
The product indicates that it’s for day use but I also used it for my night time routine for 4 days. It’s also formulated for people with normal skin and being the oily-combination skin girl like me, I was afraid it might rack up the oiliness of my face.
On my first application, I was surprised on how the texture of my face changed post-application. I followed the instructions on the box only using a pea-size amount for my face. After the product sank onto my skin, it suddenly disappeared and left my face feeling dry while I was still rubbing it in. It felt like I was tugging my cheeks all the time. At first, I was disappointed, but after a few minutes, the texture of my face turned powdery, as if I just applied a layer or two of powder foundation. I applied my makeup on top of the day cream and it did not affect the oiliness of my face at all. It did not suppress it nor made it worse, which is a plus for me. I also used this as a night cream and the powdery texture stayed until the next morning.
After 4 days of using this day cream, I noticed that my skin tone is not as uneven as it was before, and the dark spots on my face somehow lightened, although it’s still there. I’m willing to give this day cream more time for my face as I’m quite impressed with its effect on my skin during the first 4 days I used it!
The Pond’s White Beauty Spotless Rosy White Day Cream gave me hope for my problematic dark spots and it now deserves a space in my vanity area. So if you’re suffering with same problem as mine, I urge you to try it and see the effects yourself!
