Pond’s Age Miracle Day Cream FAQs
Tuesday, 28 February 2017


1. What is Pond’s Age Miracle?

Pond’s Age Miracle is the latest innovation from The Pond’s Institute, a pioneer of skincare since its inception in 1992. With its global network of 700 scientists and skin specialists, The Pond’s Institute was the first to launch Alpha Hydroxy Acids in clinically proven anti-ageing products, 200 other patents over the years.

Today, NEW Age Miracle is Pond’s first ever gold standard anti-aging formula with the Retinol-C Complex, a new game-changing technology that works 24 hour non-stop for rapid wrinkle repair and boosted youthful radiance

2. Who is Pond’s Age Miracle suitable for?

Pond’s Age Miracle was formulated with today’s harsh environment and non-stop lifestyle in mind. Modern women, aged 30+ years, continuously live non-stop lives and constantly need to balance work, family, and social life. Pond’s Age Miracle seeks to empower these women to keep living a non-stop life while helping them cope with the toll that life takes on their skin, such as accelerated formation of fine lines & wrinkles, and dullness becoming more chronic (permanent).

3. What is the new Retinol-C Complex?  And how does it work?

Retinol has been recognized as the gold standard in anti-ageing with its proven efficacy in reducing the signs of skin ageing. However, there is trade-off where a higher efficacy comes with a higher incidence of side effects like skin irritation, erythema, etc. This calls for a new anti-ageing solution that balances efficacy with stability (milder on the skin).

Retinol-C Complex, the next generation of Retinol technology, releases retinol actives continuously to strengthen skin from the inside to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and provide youthfully radiant skin on the outside.

Retinol-C Complex is formulated with:

4. What does “clinically” proven mean?

“Clinically proven” means that the clinical tests have been carried out to assure that the product delivers desired efficacy under testing safety guidelines.. A clinical test is a professional test carried out by clinical experts on consumers. Testing results are also endorsed by dermatologists. These tests are also an accurate estimate of efficacy and overall product performance. Clinical trials conducted for Pond’s Age Miracle showed that, among other positives, 98% of subjects noticed visible plumping of fine lines & wrinkles, leaving their skin soft and smooth.


1. What is the ideal application or procedure for the range?

Apply gently over your face and neck, massaging the product into your skin after cleansing your face. For best results, we recommend using both the new Pond’s Age Miracle Day Cream and the Night Cream on a daily basis.

The new Pond’s Age Miracle has been clinically proven to work within your skin throughout the day but it is also important to consider skin processes that take place overnight. The Pond’s Age Miracle Night Cream, designed to maximize efficacy, will help boost anti-ageing effects as night-time is the golden time to repair your skin..

2. Is the product suitable for people with sensitive skin or other skin conditions?

Pond’s Age Miracle products are designed to complement your skin to enhance its natural process. With the new Retinol-C Complex formulation, people can enjoy the efficacy of gold standard Retinol without its side effects of skin irritation. This makes Pond’s Age Miracle better suited towards all skin types.  We have validated the products through consumer & clinical tests on general skin types. In the case of any irritation happen please consult your dermatologist or call our care line.

3. Are there any side effects of using Pond’s Age Miracle?

For over 150 years, the Pond’s promise has been to deliver safe and revolutionary product innovations that make a real difference to women. All Pond’s Age Miracle variants have been validated through safety and irritation test and all meet regional requirements. However, we acknowledge that everyone’s skin is different. Hence, if any person experiences skin irritation after using the product for more than 3 days, we recommend that they stop using the product immediately and consult a dermatologist.

4. How should I store the products?

Please keep the container tightly closed and put it in a dry and cool place. Avoid direct exposure to heat and sunlight. Pond’s Age Miracle has been formulated and professionally packed to protect the goodness and efficacy of the product during the life time.

A Brief Primer to Glutathione
Thursday, 11 August 2016

From billboards, beauty shelves, and countless commercials, we’ve seen the mother of all antioxidants advertised over and over as a whitening supplement. But what most people don’t know is that it is also the master detoxifier and one of the great boosters of our immune system: Glutathione (GSH).

Naturally, we produce GSH on our own body. It is a very simple molecule with three simple building blocks of protein or amino acids. It offers countless benefits to our health and it is the most prevalent antioxidant produced by the human body. GSH also helps protects cells from the damage caused by harmful free radicals, aids in detoxification, boost your immune system and keep your cells in tip-top shape.

However, as we age, our body’s natural production of GSH declines. But other factors such as poor diet, pollution, toxins, stress, and radiation also deplete the body’s GSH which, in turn, contributes to uncontrolled cell disintegration.

Luckily, supplement manufacturers from all over the world made it easier for us to get our dose of GSH through capsules, supplements, and even oral doses! But here’s where the precaution lies: Make sure you’re getting the real deal. We’ve known stories of people getting scammed with fake GSH and ended up with health problems. If you searched “fake glutathione,” you’ll stumble upon pages and pages of frustrations and scary experiences in blogs, news articles, and forums.

One way of making sure that the supplement you’re taking is if it’s approved by the Food and Drug Administration of the Philippines or commonly known by its former name, Bureau of Food and Drugs or BFAD. This agency is created to ensure that the food and drugs made available to the public are safe and would cause no harm to our body. You can check their online website for the list of approved supplements or just type the name and search site wide. Results will come up if it’s approved by FDA.

Remember roommates, it’s one thing to take a step to a healthier you but it’s another to research about the product and make sure that what you’re getting is safe for your body. Consulting a physician before taking any supplements also helps so they can give you personalized advice and recommendations considering your current state of health.

It’s not news anymore when we hear that women spend so much time (and money) on their skincare routines and who can blame them? If the effects will benefit you in the long run (ex. healthy and youthful looking skin for xx years) then all the efforts (and investments) are all worth it!

Skincare routines are very personal and curated to a woman’s needs. It can be as extensive as the famous 10-step Korean skincare routine or it can be as basic as the Cleanse, Tone, and Moisturize routine depending on what your skin concerns are and how you’re going to treat it.

But if you’re still testing the waters on what to include in your own skincare routine, let us help you out in today’s #SampleRoomTips!

1. Cleansers
It’s important that we clean our face from all the oil, dirt and makeup that accumulated in the day. But bear in mind that not all cleansers are compatible for every skin type. Choose a cleanser that’s gentle and most suitable to your skin’s needs.

Tools for a thorough and deep face cleansing are also available in the local and international beauty market. If you have the extra moolah to purchase one, it’ll prove to be a worthy investment.

2. Toners
Toners bring back the PH balance of the skin and remove the last traces of makeup and dirt left on your face. A variety of face toners has popped up giving you a wide selection to find a specialized toner for your skin needs.

3. Boosters
If you’re new to skin boosters, these are essentially the products that strengthen the skin’s natural defenses and better protect itself from the environment and toxins which allow the skin and your products to perform at its optimum level.

To give you a 101 on how skin boosters work, you can try out the Elizabeth Arden SUPERSTART Skin Renewal Booster in our products page for free.

4. Serums
Serums are the workhorses of every skincare routine. It has the highest concentration of active ingredients that target different skin problems such as anti-oxidants, lighteners, and peptides.

For this month, we have two serums available for sampling to you, roommates. The Elizabeth Arden PREVAGE® Anti-Aging + Intensive Repair Daily Serum to boost your skin’s natural defenses and renewal ability and the Elizabeth Arden Ceramide Capsules Daily Youth Restoring Serum for a more youthful and healthy looking skin.

5. SPF
Skincare is suncare! Don’t let your skin be bombarded with damaging UV rays in the day. Apply sunblock (for UVB rays) or sunscreen (for UVA rays) to keep your skin UVproof!

6. Moisturizer
Moisturizers hydrate your skin just like how water hydrates our body. It makes the skin look healthy and soft and helps the skin function at peak performance. Most moisturizers available also contain active and natural ingredients that target different skincare concerns.

To supercharge your evening routines, the Elizabeth Arden FLAWLESS FUTURE Powered by Ceramide™ Night Cream is available for sampling in our products page.

Hope our quick rundown gave you a brief insight on how to customize and personalize your own skincare routine.

Remember roommates, whatever steps you decide to include or products to use, the trick here is to be consistent and true to your skin needs. The list of products and the amount of time that will be spent may look daunting at first but your skin will love you for it.

I pride myself being born in a wonderful age of technology wherein all things are possible. Before, things had to run its course, but now, technology somehow tries to defy the natural occurrence of things, and one of the things that I have noticed that they are trying to be successful, in the beauty industry, is addressing aging. Yes, women want young skin for as long as they can, and stretch their youthfulness for as long as they can. I myself am hopeful that I can stay young-looking for a little longer! Haha!

During my 20s, I thought that my skin was never gonna age. It was really oily, and I thought that I was gonna stay that way until I reach my forties. Wrong. The closer I was to reaching the big 3-0, my skin condition actually changed! It was less oily already, and I could definitely see the signs of aging – skin is not as plump as before, there were bags under my eyes ( even more ), and I just felt like I was younger before. Collagen loss, I believe. We lose collagen as we age, and that is the factor that keeps our skin plump and supple looking. Reluctantly, I had to try more moisturizer products ( and I used to love spritzing my face with moisture mist as moisturizer before, apparently, that was not enough anymore! ) to salvage my skin.

ZA Cosmetics is one of the Japanese brands that I really respect. It is under the same company that makes Shiseido, and one big plus about this brand is that it is more affordable than its premium counterpart. ZA has recently launched its Perfect Solution Line, a line that promises to solve all skin problems!

Its promise? Continue Reading
