Ponds Pure White Deep cleansing Facial foam Review


I have dry to combination skin type and keep searching for face washes which suit my skin better. I was using Pear's face wash earlier and but during monsoon season it doesn't seem to work very well on me. It would never give me good squeaky clean washed face feeling (but i swear by it in summers). I bought this particular facewash couple of days ago, when i went to purchase some groceries at the local departmental stores.

I was looking for this particular face wash as i was intrigued by their adds in tv and magazines, it is so captivating. But in the very beginning when i wanted buy it, it was always sold out, thus i forgot about it. But i had a chance to lay on my hands on it and without second thought bought it. I have been using it for 2-3 weeks now and i think its the right time to write a review about it...


The face wash in its all black packaging, it is so classy...stands out in the shelf at the store....


The flip-side of the face wash....

Price : RS 125 for 100 gms

Shelf Life : A good 2 years.

What the company claims : Pond's introduces a new skin cleansing philosophy, black attracts black. New Pond's Pure White Facial Foam is formulated with activated carbon. The black activated carbon is known to easily absorb and lift away black dirt and impurities from the skin surface and deep within pores, helping to reduce the causes of blemish to reveal your natural pure white looking skin

There is something that I noticed is that this face wash is not made in India it is made in Indonesia..and imported and distributed by HLL India 


The face wash is greyish silver or dirty silver (like a pearly nail polish only thicker) in color and the consistency is as similar to Ponds White Beauty face wash. When i initially bought it, i quickly opened it to see if the face wash was in black color but it was not..:(..

How to use it : Wet your face, foam the cleanser, apply to face with gentle massage and then rinse off..

Pros : 

  • The sleek and sexy black packaging
  • Removes dirt and makeup effectively, dry skinned beauties may find it bit drying....
  • Affordable price
  • Gives a brighter complexion (not fairer)
  • makes skin squeaky clean, 
  • nice and sturdy cap, good to travel with... 

Cons : 

  • To me it smells little muskier but not OTT , like a men's grooming product. Thank god its not super strong, otherwise i would have hated it.
  • If you keep massaging the foam for more than 3 mins (like i did one day), its gonna make your skin super dry...(i have to apply loads of moisturizer to compensate that dryness)...


Quite thick as you can see...


Foam by itself without water.....


With water it lathers up quite generously...

Verdict : Yes for sure but just for the smell, i still prefer the pink one over this..

Guys, do let me know if you also felt that there was something so strange with the fragrance or not???
