When I first saw this on TV, I snorted. I thought, wow, another marketing ploy to attract consumers. Activated carbon, really? I never knew much about chemistry, but I found it ridiculous splashing carbon all over your face. Yeah, that was exaggerated. Needless to say, I wasn’t excited to try it.
When the product was launched, free sachets were given out to MRT stations. This one lady was in a real hurry so she gave me tons of samples. And it so happened I had no more facial wash at home. Great, so I guess I have no choice but to try them then. Being a cautious consumer, I read the labels first.
- Lifts away impurities
- Helps cleanse face thoroughly
- Reveals natural pure white skin
THE REAL SCORE:
All three claims are true. It does cleanse really well, I’ve been using it for over a month already. My skin has become noticeably clearer and fairer, too. The only problem is, and this is usually true for all Pond’s products (according to my experience at least), that though it cleanses thoroughly, facial skin tends to become dry in which one needs the use of a moisturizer after.
I am not allergic to any product (that’s a yay for me!), so I cannot assure that Pond’s Pure White with Activated Carbon is safe for everyone’s skin. Overall, the product is excellent. My friend and I actually buy bigger containers now. I recommended it to a neighbor, and she loved the results. 🙂
