As you know Pond’s recently launched a new Luminous Clean Collection that supposedly brightens skin and eases dullness. I say hells yes….I struggle with dull, tired skin so I definitely navigate towards anything that promises me brighter looking skin.
I’ve been using Pond’s Luminous Clean Cream Cleanser for close two weeks now and here are a few thoughts.
Pond’s Luminous Clean Cream Cleanser is creamy facial cleanser enriched with moisturizing ingredients and soft white kaolin clay known to gently draw out dirty, makeup, and impurities while visibly improving dull skin and giving it a brighter appearance.
If you’re familiar with the thick, creaminess of a Japanese collagen wash this cleanser has a similiar texture. It’s an extra thick, rich white cream which works itself into a foaming lather which rinses away dirt, makeup and oil. I prefer using this in the AM with my Clarisonic as it works itself into a thick lather and foams up beautifully while washing completely away and leaving my skin nice and soft.
I’m quite pleased that it didn’t strip my skin or left it feeling tight after use. It washes clean away without leaving behind a film or any tackiness. It also does a fine job of removing makeup such as BB Cream, blush, foundation products, etc…easily.
Mmm I’m not sure I noticed visible improvement in my skin as far as brightening or dullness but I may need to use it over an extended period of time before seeing such results.
Overall, it’s a rather nice cleanser. It does have a rather strong fragrance so be aware if you are purchasing as it might prove a little too much for those sensitive to fragrance in their skincare. At around $5 a bottle it’s an excellent budget pick as an AM or PM cleanser that gets squeaky clean. I have hopes with longer use my skin will begin to look a bit brighter!
Good basic budget cleanser with a nice fragrance and a formula that isn’t too harsh!
