Meet Ponds Pure White Facial Cleansing Foam which is apparently formulated with activated carbon. Supposedly this carbon attracts “black” this lifting away dirt, oil, makeup, and blackheads creating clean skin. Eh? Black attracts black that’s basically what the formula is marketed as. Meaning dirt is attracted to the activated carbon in the formula. Although the actual cleanser looks purple and not the carbon black one would suspect….but hey, interesting concept.
Hows it do?
The Body Shop Camomile Silky Cleansing Oil ($18) is a brand new cleansing oil that just launched from the brand. In fact, I believe it’s the first cleansing oil that the Body Shop has every done.
Recently the Body Shop has been some new skincare essentials and the Camomile Silky Cleansing Oil happens to be one!
Allegedly Tony Moly Real Persimmon Juice Cleansing Gel contains real fruit juice…hmmmm…I dunno about that but I am obsessed with fruit shaped skincare items (thank you Korea, thank you Japan! You’ve converted me to the joys of owning as many lip balms, cleansers, and moisturizers shaped like strawberries, lemons, and peaches as I possibly can!) so this hit my beauty radar recently.
Did I like it?
Ponds Flawless White Deep Lightening Facial Foam ($6.40) is part of the Flawless White Skincare Collection that launched in Asia early last Spring I believe (don’t quote me, I think they revisited the line in the Spring of 2012).
This is a whitening foaming facial cleansing that’s supposed to give skin a brighter appearance. We have something similar here in the US that’s called Pond’s Luminous Clean Cream Cleanser, sorta the same concept.
Let’s take a look!
