Pond’s Luminous Finish BB Cream Review & Swatches
Yes, I love it…! Pond’s Luminous Finish BB Cream is a winner however, not in the sense that it has a ton of coverage. Sorry kids, this is a sheer BB Cream….! But I love it because it does exactly what it promises! Provides luminous coverage that basically perfects your face and makes for a flawless experience.
Pond’s Luminous Finish BB Cream ($8.99-$9.99 depending where you purchase) that was created with a Tone Perfect Complex that works on dark spots and visible fades them. No I can’t say if this is working but I generally like the idea that it might just be treating my dark spots during application.
Let’s take a look!
In all honesty if you’re a chronic user of BB Creams and have experience Korean BB Cream formulas you are in for a little disappointment with Pond’s Luminous Finish BB Cream because it does run sheerer. When you’re used to the coverage of a Korea BB Cream it is backpedaling slightly when you’re using something this sheer as it feels more like a tinted moisturizer. Another disappointing aspect is the lower SPF 15. However, if you can get past both these issues I think you’ll love this formula as much as I do.
Honestly, it’s like a high quality tinted moisturizer for ten fracking bucks. SCORE! It comes in a Light and Medium shade selection so it does limit options to who can use it but since it is so sheer it’ll likely universally fit a broad range of shades without look too pasty or unnatural.
This comes in a squeeze tube that’s a generous 1.5 oz size. It has a soft delicate rose scent which is very subtle. The formula is rich, very creamy, and applies easily onto skin. It has a very hydrating finish at first application and really provides some nice moisture during that time. But no worries it sets to a soft, satiny finish that doesn’t cling to drier areas or accentuate pores. I don’t need a lot of coverage and this works more as a CC Cream would as it corrects your skin tone, evens it out, brightens, and creates a more uniformed, flawless finish. There are SO many BB Creams on the market at the moment that promises to brighten but the shades are such duller beige shades that they end up making my complexion look lackluster and they cover up any natural glow my skin already has. Pond’s Luminous Finish BB Cream provides the luminosity and brightening that my duller skin needs.
Light and Medium
The formula supposedly targets dark spots as well to reduce their appearance over time but I’ve been using it for about three weeks now and can’t say if that is working or not as of yet as fading dark spots is sometimes a full time job and requires constant use to see any real difference.
Overall, Pond’s Luminous Finish BB Cream is probably one of the nicest BB Creams I’ve run across in drugstores and it does in fact gain a Muse Approval. I think that the sheerness of the product will prove a little disappointing but overall, this is a winner for those who desire a more weightless lighter coverage that perfects but doesn’t necessarily conceal!
It’s available now at drugstores.
Muse Approved for this one.
