  1. I was given a sample of this and I love the smoothness of the ponds BB cream. I bought then the chocolate cream and used this for three months. Does not give you a foundation effect. I loved the finish once I used a compact powder over it. I did find it to be oily at first when applied. The powder gave it a better finish.

  2. I think this may be a good product – if the shade matches your skin tone. In my case, the beige is too light and the chocolate much too dark. No amount of blending can save the limited range of shades for this product.

  3. I gave this a go this morning. I was very impressed! It blended in wonderfully with my skin tone, so it doesn’t look cakey. It also gives off a very natural finish. It gave me a  clearer, even-toned complexion without a heavy foundation.

  4. I have been using the Pond’s Flawless Radiance BB Cream for months now and I must say I really do love it. Initially, I hated it because directly after application it gives your skin a very yellow tint and I looked terrible, but after a minute or two the product becomes less yellow, and suits my skin tone perfectly. It did a good job evening out my skin tone and I think that my skin looks much better on pictures when wearing this BB cream. An added bonus is the SPF of 15, which is a necessity with the scorching sun in South Africa.

  5. I don’t need heavy coverage for my skin so this is perfect for days when I want to look like I have flawless skin using something light and easy. It’s an okay product, quite mattifying – definitely not for dry skin. Having only 2 shades in the range isn’t great and the scent isn’t great either. I’ve also noticed some flashback in pics with this product.

  6. I love the Ponds BB Cream. The only problem I have is the fact that it only comes in two shades so for me who has an olive complexion the light is too light and the dark too dark.

  7. I really wanted to like this product. I was excited about there being a BB cream for darker skinned girls but it left me feeling average. I will finish it because I bought it but I won’t repurchase it. The packaging feels cheap and almost like a child’s makeup toy. It offers okay coverage, it spreads easily and its a nice budget option.

  8. I’ve tried out a few BB creams in search of the elusive natural coverage, and unfortunately this is not the best one. None of the colours really suit, and it is a bit too thick. It doesn’t blend as naturally as it should, and one doesn’t feel completely well made-up.

  9. And here’s the BB wave coming, come on ladies catch the wave because our well known Ponds cream which has been keeping women beautiful for over 150 years has created the most revolutionary BB Cream which will sweep ladies off their feet.

    This amazing BB Cream has something which no other BB Cream on the market has, this amazing BB Cream contains GenActiv Cover, which is an active formula, which evens skin tone and reduces dark marks from within.

    Ponds BB Cream Benefits:
    • Instant natural coverage
    • Non-pore clogging
    • Light, non-oily texture
    •Instant skin hydration improvement for a moisturised look
    • Reduces dark marks
    • Evens skin tone
    • Protects from UVA and UVB rays (SPF30++)

    So far I’ve been using the product for almost a week now and yes this BB Cream is amazing. The BB Cream gives me a natural yet flawless look with an amazing dewy but fresh look. The BB Cream has a light texture which is soft and absolutely fluffy. The BB Cream goes onto skin effortlessly and blends in to skin with a smooth and matte finish. The BB cream gives skin a beautiful medium coverage. This amazing BB Cream is especially for South African skin tones, however I wouldn’t really say that because it works on most skin types and works especially well on oily skin because it doesn’t make you shine at all.

    The BB Cream comes in a shiny packaging, with a shiny silver tube and a large twist lid in shimmering silver. The tube has a large bright pink section which has information about the product. The thing I really love about the BB Cream is the nozzle, it’s really small so it allows the perfect amount of BB Cream that you actually want. The smell of the BB Cream is the usual dreamy but fresh smell of Ponds cream which makes skin burst with fresh scent.

    The product comes in the following colours:

    It’s sad that there are only two shades of the BB cream, hopefully there will be more shades soon. This amazing BB Cream has some really amazing long term benefits for a healthier and stronger skin.
    These benefits are:
    •Skin tone evening efficacies
    •Long term skin evening benefit that works at the epidermal level of the skin through continuous usage.
    •Dark mark efficacies
    •Significant dark mark reduction results on the surface of the skin.
    •Long term dark mark reduction benefits that work at the epidermal level of the skin through continuous usage.
    •Significant and superior sun protection.
    •Increase in skin hydration levels
    •Long term improvement in skin hydration for healthy
    •Long term skin improvements in multi-targeted areas.

    PRO’s and CON’s of Ponds BB Cream

    •Light texture with a non oily formula
    •Sets to a matte finish
    •Doesn’t need to be dusted with translucent powder
    •Fresh Ponds scent
    •Evens skin tone after frequent use
    •SPF 30
    •Blends into a natural flawless finish
    Gives skin a lovely dewy look
    Very attractive packaging

    •There isn’t much of the BB Cream in the tube- only 25ml
    •Only available in two shades

    So this BB Cream turns out a little pricey because R89 for only 25ml of BB Cream which means digging deeper in your pockets. However this BB Cream is unique and works from the inside to solve uneven skin tone and imperfections. Overall I would recommend you give this product a try because the product blends in flawlessly and looks simply amazing.

  10. I expected this BB cream to make my skin look flawlessly radiant as the name suggests..instead it made my skin look matte and chalky. None of the shades matched my skin tone. I’m quite disappointed actually. I didn’t use it long enough to see if it really evens out your skin in 7 days. On the bright side the packaging is pretty in pink and silver. It smells OK but I wouldn’t recommend this BB cream to anyone. With all the other competitor BB creams out there this 1 becomes just another BB cream for me. Hoping they improve their formula though and make the colors more adaptable to various skin tones :)
