Pond's Gold Facial Foam

Price: R129.90
Availability: Leading retail stores nationwide

What we say:
The first thing I noticed and liked about the facial foam, was the delicate fragrance on application. Very little product is needed on application and the handy squeeze tube makes this easy to control. I couldn’t believe that one could see the difference immediately after the first application.

It feels thick, creamy and foamy, and has very fine micro particles for a perfect amount of very light exfoliation. It feels like I’m using an extremely luxurious product, and it leaves my skin feeling clean and nourished. This product works for me, because it replaces two products that I would otherwise use (a foaming wash alternated with a fine scrub) so I’d recommend it.
– Jessica

Being a woman in my 30’s, I prefer to use a creamy rather than a foamy cleanser and I always look for something that has a gentle exfoliating action. The Ponds Radiance Revealed Facial Foam fits really well into both of these categories. The packaging is really beautiful, all gold, and looks very sophisticated – perfect for the target market of slightly more mature ladies (30+). I will definitely be buying this cleanser again, and I have already converted my mom onto it as well.
– Mariaan

This lovely cleansing wash has a creamy texture, that when does not have that much of a foaming element to it but it really does clean your skin. I loved the fact that it did not dry out my skin either! It is meant to gently exfoliate and clean skin without making it dry and I really feel as though it does exactly that. I would definitely purchase this wash again.

The Pond’s Gold Radiance Radiance Revealed Facial Foam left my face feeling smooth and firm, with no inflammation or redness. However, I was not a fan of the foam itself, mostly because of the fragrance, which tends to linger around my face for most of the morning. As for the effectiveness of the product, it definitely has resulted in a noticeably smooth complexion and the gold micro particles add a radiant glow that is visible through my make-up.
– Roxanne

The foam actually does a great job of getting rid of the build-up of oil and dirt as well as refreshing and readying my face for cream. A huge concern for me was the fact that with the wrong cleanser, my face will get tight and uncomfortable as I had been recently struggling with dehydrated skin. I was also concerned about the potential of a break-out. It’s safe to say that my concerns were misplaced. My skin didn’t feel tight or uncomfortable at all. Thanks to the facial foam, much of the dullness in my face began to gradually disappear. I can honestly say that it truly does reveal a radiant more youthful looking skin – the key is just to be patient.

Best face wash I’ve ever used. Firstly you don’t need to use much (only about 1cm of cream). You get that clean/fresh smell once you starting lathering it on your face. It has very fine gold scrub within, which gently scrubs the skin and is not harsh at all. I use it twice a day, morning and night, and I love the way my skin feel after using it. I will definitely be buying this product again.
– Marina

I like the packaging of this cleanser: simple and elegant. The cleanser itself looks like a cream cleanser, but it foams up beautifully when you add a bit of water. I like the fact that it foams as my skin never really feels clean whilst using another type of cleanser. The product does a decent job of cleansing my skin and removing make-up. It unfortunately leaves my skin feeling a little tight after use so I am not sure if this would be an ideal cleanser for those with dry skin.
– Charlene

This product smells very nice and clean. It’s very soft and it doesn’t make my skin feel dry or tight. From the first night that I have been using this product, both myself and my husband could immediately see the difference. I have combination skin which is also very sensitive and tends to scar/break out, so for me the purpose of this product is to cleanse without drying out my face. I like this product because I have tried a ‘zillion’ products to help me with my skin problem and now I have found a product that helps in an instant. I would recommend it to everyone, because if I could see results in just one weekend then everyone who ever wanted beautiful skin must buy it for themselves.
– Diana

I like the size of the facial foam. As it is a 100ml tube and you only need a small amount every time you wash your face, it goes a long way. It really cleanses your face with the real gold pieces it contains. The smell is so clean. My face feels so soft and clean after I have washed it. I can see and feel the difference after washing it. It does not dry my skin out.
– Lorraine

This product is probably the most elegantly packaged face wash I have come across. I was hesitant to try the product as I have very sensitive skin and its always daunting applying something new as I am not sure how my skin will react. I was pleasantly surprised that I had no reaction. During the first week my skin felt smoother, softer and looked a lot better than with the week before’s facial routine. I would definitely buy this facial foam.
– Lynn

This is the best face wash I have ever used! I often struggle with face washes as most leave my skin feeling quite tight and stretched. It effectively removed all my makeup, including my mascara. It looks and feels like a luxury product and it smells fantastic too! After washing my face my skin felt really soft and smooth without a hint of dryness or stretch to it. This is a great product for ageing combination skin and a must-have for me now.
– Marguerite

I have found it to be a light, easy to use facial wash. It is easy to apply and washes off quickly, leaving my skin feeling soft and beautifully clean. It has a pleasant fragrance that is not overpowering. The container is of a good size and as a little goes a long way so I feel that I am getting value for money with it. The only problem is that some of the text on the bottle is a little hard to read for a person with my “old-lady eyes”, not only size-wise but also the shimmer tends to make it hard to read. I would highly recommend this product and will be buying it again myself in future.
– Melanie

The Radiance Revealed Facial Foam comes in a tube that stands easily on its lid, and fits comfortable in the hand. This cleanser is enough to remove very lightly applied make-up. For heavier makeup, I needed an extra step in the cleansing. I experienced the exfoliation as gentle, but did have some tightness that improved after completion of my skin care routine. As warned on the product, I experienced a light tingling sensation during the first two uses. I will recommend the product to anyone who does not experience any dryness or sensitivity.
– Retha

The product is quite thick and buttery so it took a few days for me to judge the exact amount to use. But once I got that right it was smooth sailing – literally as my skin was left feeling smooth, soft and thoroughly clean. The gold microparticles help to exfoliate the skin and keep pesky blackheads at bay. The cleanser is mild and gentle on your skin making it perfect for even sensitive skin types.
– Serisha

The packaging is eye catching and I love the gold colour – it looks royal! I love the tingling sensation when I apply it to my face. I can feel the product is working & after each use my skin feels brighter. I love the way it smells & when using it I can actually feel it working on my skin. I would definitely repurchase this product and recommend it.
– Jassika

When you lather the face wash, it has a nice thick consistency and nice concentration, so only a small jelly bean size amount is necessary to wash the entire face and neckline. The face wash doesn’t dry your skin out as it contains no soap! It leaves the skin feeling clean and fresh. I have noticed however that you really need to make sure you wash this foam off completely due to the thick consistency – as your face will feel sticky if there’s still some foam left on the skin. Unfortunately – after 4 weeks of using this product, I noticed absolutely no change for the better in my complexion…
– Louise

It has a smooth texture with tiny, round particles in it and has a fresh, clean smell. This facial foam doesn’t leave the skin feeling dry and tight, the skin feels soft, supple and well moistened. Any grey-looking dullness has vanished, blemishes seem to be reduced and skin impurities are cleansed away. I would recomment this facial cleansing foam for all skin types and ages as it is very gentle but the results are definitely achieved as the benefits can be seem after a few applications.
– Dorothy

The foam is in cream form with tiny gold beads to help with exfoliating. It exfoliates without drying out my skin. My face is smooth to touch and has also become firmer.
