Ponds Light Moisturizer Review

Ponds is one of the staple beauty brands that’s easily available in the market. Not every new launch from Ponds interests me, but this particular product got my interest, mainly because of its claim of being non-greasy. Who doesn’t want a lightweight formulation to use in our hot and humid weather. Read on to know my thoughts on this Ponds Light Moisturizer.

Product Description:

Infused with Vitamin E, the Ponds Light Moisturizer moisturizes dry skin locking 24 hours moisture. Its non oily lightweight feel is suitable for all year use and all skin types. Leaves your skin incredibly soft and smooth with plumpness.

Packaging: The Ponds Light Moisturizer comes in a blueish green plastic tub packaging. The tub looks classy and is sturdy to hold, despite its cheap price tag. The inside of the tub is further protected with an aluminum foil. Except for the absence of a spatula, the overall packaging is really good. The back side of the tub has the full ingredients list printed. This moisturizer comes in various sizes and the smallest one (25ml) is super travel friendly as well.

Color & Texture: It is a milky white coloured cream which has a texture similar to lotions. It’s pretty thin, lightweight and very smooth.

Fragrance: It has a very mild floral fragrance that is barely noticeable once the product is applied on the skin. I’m sure the scent would not be a trouble for sensitive noses. It’s very subtle.

Efficacy: I love the texture of this product a lot. It’s lightweight yet very hydrating and moisturizing at the same time. The moisturizer is water based and vanishes into the skin within seconds. It doesn’t make my combination skin oilier or drier. I mean it neither feels greasy nor makes the skin stretchy or taut. This moisturizer has a velvety matte finish and leaves the skin soft and radiant looking. The product doesn’t have any SPF in it, which is not a problem to me as there is no white cast or obvious whiteness on my skin which most day creams/fairness creams tend to leave.

The Ponds Light Moisturizer doesn’t impart any brightness as such but just moisturizes the skin keeping it healthy and supple. And for this price, I don’t expect more. Except for dry skin types, everyone can use this. I am prone to acne but I didn’t encounter acne breakouts with this product. It also goes well under makeup giving a smooth canvas for makeup application.

Would I recommend? Honestly I didn’t expect this product to be good and I felt this was just another new launch. But we’ll it proved me wrong. It’s a really nice everyday oil free moisturizer that will suit all skin types, except dry skin. It’s also super affordable making it an ideal choice for those who are on budget. I don’t have a reason to not recommend it, so yes do give it a try. Ponds also launched a gel version called Super Light Gel Moisturizer, popularly known to be a dupe of the infamous Neutrogena Hydro Boost Water Gel. Check that out if you prefer gel type moisturizers.
