Review: Pond’s Flawless White BB+ Cream

I love using BB Creams because it can give a flawless look on my skin while maintaining its natural, youthful glow. Well, think of those famous Korean actors and actresses. The look of their skin is one thing that a lot of us envy. Well, a BB Cream can do the job to achieve that. Apparently, there are some skin types that seem to repel the formulation of a BB Cream. There are some who get breakouts afterwards. Some get super oily by midday. Others don’t like the sticky feel of the BB Cream when it combines with the hot weather here in our country.

Luckily, I discovered a product which has that same effect of the typical BB Cream but also answers the skin concerns stated above. It is the Pond’s Flawless White BB+ Cream in Light. I am so happy that I got this product from my March 2015 BDJ Box: Pond’s. 😀

Product Description (taken from the Pond’s website):

Looking for the best BB Cream*? The Pond’s Institute developed Pond’s Flawless White BB+ Cream—a whitening cream and lightweight foundation in one—giving both skin care and makeup benefits. Use Pond’s BB+ Cream to achieve a flawless, no-makeup look.

Special Ingredient: GenActiv™
Two potent ingredients, Niacinamide and 12HSA, regulate the genes that control melanin production.

  • Compared to other BB Creams, it is less likely to cause pimples because it’s less sticky and helps control oil the whole day. No need to apply powder afterwards.
  • Compared to a CC Cream, it gives better coverage without the sticky feeling, aside from Pond’s expert skin care formula.

Yup! I already got my own BDJ Box Elite: Be Your Own Heroine!!! 😀 It was really tough choosing which of the boxes I should get. *phew!* It took me around three hours just browsing through each picture and looking at the items included in each box. Seriously… Haha! 😛 Here is my previous post of the elite boxes available.

Finally, I decided to get one. It arrived last weekend and I am so excited to let you see the box that I chose. 😉

The cover sleeve is super cute, don’t you think? 😉

Since it is an elite release, the box is much more special as compared to the regular BDJ Box. Remember my first elite box (BDJ Box Elite: Girls Night Out)? The items are inside a multi-functional pouch. This time, the items are inside a bigger box with a flip up flap cover. 😀
