Before I got my hands on the new Pond's BB+ cream, I had a very distinct image of Pond's as a brand.  For me, Pond's was synonymous with the creams and skincare products used by the adult women in my life; my grandmother, my aunts, and my mom.  Pond's was an "old lady" brand to me, so when I heard about their new BB+ Cream, I sort of shrugged it off... That is, until I got my hands on some.

I got this product for free to test out from Influenster and Pond's.  Upon opening the package, I was surprised by how cute and fun the product packaging was.  It looked sweet but still simple, and it definitely caught my attention.  I headed to my makeup station to try it out, and IMMEDIATELY fell in love.  In fact, I am so sold on this BB+ Cream that I am planning on totally ditching my $45 Laura Mercier tinted moisturizer in favor of this magic little $10 bottle!

As you can see, the BB+ Cream has some incredible color correcting power!  My skin has a tendency to get a little pink sometimes, and this evened it right out!  It also makes my pores appear smaller, and gives my skin a very subtle radiance while still looking totally natural.  One thing that I really love about it is that it doesn't conceal my freckles--it just makes them
blend in a little better!  The product smooths on perfectly and then seems to just disappear into your skin.  I've also noticed that my skin feels softer at the end of the day after using this BB+ Cream!  Another thing that I love about it is that the BB+ Cream will work with both warm and cool undertones because the pigment actually adjusts to match your skin.  It's so hard for me to find reasonably priced products for very fair skin with cool undertones, so this is a huge bonus!  I also love that this BB+ Cream can double as my foundation and moisturizer in one, so I don't have to spend as much time putting things all over my face!

Here's what POND's wants you to know about their brand new product:

  • Visibly reduces the appearance of dark spots to even skin tone in two weeks
  • Superior* coverage of imperfections
  • Superior* visible dark spot reduction
  • Superior* non-greasy feel with a matte finish
  • Tone Perfecting Complex formulated with:
    • Vitamin E Acetate – an antioxidant known to protect and repair skin
    • Glycerin – helps increase hydration
  • Brightens and hydrates with lightweight moisture
  • SPF 15 protects against harmful UVA/UVB rays
  • Hypoallergenic and non-comedogenic
  • Reduces the number of beauty and skin care products required during a daily beauty regimen
 *POND’s® Light Shade BB+ vs. the top-selling BB Cream.

So far for me, all of this has been absolutely true!  I couldn't be more impressed with this product...
