My experience Pond's Pimple Clear White Multi-Action Facial Wash:
I picked this up mainly because I cannot use a whole lot of facewashes because 9 out of 10 of them leave a slippery cast which is very and I really mean it, ''very'' hard to remove with the kind of water we have here. I Like Ponds facewashes because they do not leave that sliperry cast but on the other hand I feel they dry out the skin a little too much :/ There was a time (read about 5 months ago lol) I use to wash my face 3 times everyday with Ponds and need less to say I was a dry skinned wreck. But then I found my HG clean and clear facewash which does not leave that slippery cast nor dries out my skin. Ok enough with my skin woes, Let's move on to the review.
The face wash has a flip open white tube which is very sturdy, So it is travel friendly!
Smell and texture:
The face wash is a very light green-white in color and thick in texture like all other Ponds ones if you have used any of them. It lathers very well so you only need a small quantity otherwise you will end up with dry skin, it has a smell to it which I can't describe but it is not unpleasant nor overpowering,it goes away if you put moisturizer otherwise it stays for like 10 minutes,it is not all overpowering or irritating to sensitive noses, trust me,I am a chronic rhinitis sufferer and my ''nose'' definitely ''knows'' (lol pun intended) if a smell is irritating.
The face wash has tiny weeny micro granules which do not scrub at all! So don't think it is one of those face wash cum scrub washes, they are there just to dry your skin a bit more,I say. Like all other variants of Ponds I have used before, as you wash your face, it feels and looks absolutely matte,not a trace of oil....or moisture!
It rips your skin off all moisture and makes dry patches even drier and yes your face does look powdery white from excessive drying,similar to what fairness creams do . But sad thing is after 3 hours or so skin is as oily as ever, and no ''brightness'' can be seen. Moreover It has some bad ingredients that are comedogenic! o_o
My likes with Pond's Pimple Clear White Multi-Action Facial Wash:
2)Lathers very well so little bit is needed
3)Does not leave any kind of slippery cast
4)Makes skin very matte after washing
5)Does brightens skin for sometime
6)Contains salicylic acid
My dislikes with Pond's Pimple Clear White Multi-Action Facial Wash:
1)It strips skin of oil and moisture
2)It is drying for combination or normal skin, best suited for oily ones
3)It has comedogenic ingredients which cause acne!
4) Skin is oily again after 3 hours.
Final verdict :
Pond's Pimple Clear White Multi-Action Facial Wash is a drying facewash most suitable for very oily skin, it lathers very well give rich foam and washes off without leaving any slippery feeling and stripping skin of it's existing oils.Not bad for the price and for people like me who hate slippery cast but a no for others.
