Pond’s has always had a spot in our bathroom counter ever since I can remember. It was the skincare brand I used way back in high school and I was pretty loyal to it; that is until I started blogging and experimenting with other products. But even with me switching products, Pond’s have remained a staple in our household. Pond’s is like a rite of passage for me and my 3 siblings; we all used Pond’s facial wash and toner for most of our high school years. It’s amazing how Pond’s keep on reinventing itself to continue to grow with the market and be up-to-date with the trend whilst still delivering great products.
This season, Pond’s introduces a breakthrough to add to your beauty regimen, the Pond’s Pearl Cleansing Gel. The New Pond’s Pearl Cleansing Gel contains Pearl Essence known to whiten skin and an oxygenated formulation which refreshes and cleanses effectively without drying skin. Because of its mild formulation that locks in moisture, the Pond’s Pearl Cleansing Gel is suitable for sensitive skin.
During the start of the event, Pond’s Girls and fashion blogger BFFs, Laureen Uy and Nicole Andersson talked about the beauty trends that will dominate this season, namely the bare minimum or no makeup look, which is all about having great skin; the multi-taskers, or products that save you time and effort; and gels, which is present in many beauty products now.
With that in mind, Pond’s came up with their newest, most advanced product yet – the Pond’s Pearl Cleansing Gel. So why make a shift to gel skincare products? Well, gel skincare products, for one, are lighter in texture and generally have milder ingredients allowing its essential properties to dissolve faster and more effectively into the skin.
Pond’s Pearl Cleansing Gel has an oxygenated formulation that cleanses deeply, while locking in skin’s natural moisture.  It is also Vitamin B3 infused with Pearl Essence known to whiten skin. With these two ingredients, Pond’s Pearl Cleansing Gel gives you whiter and fresher skin. Well, not to mention softer and suppler skin to boot.
With its lightweight formulation, it delivers hydration for those with oily or combination skin, and will not cause breakouts or clogged pores. Also, it is perfect for sensitive skin as it has milder ingredients compared to regular whitening soaps.
To put this claim to the test, they dipped protein strips [that are said to contain similar protein structure with that found in our skin] in water diluted with (1) regular whitening kojic soap, and the other with (2) Pond’s Pearl Cleansing Gel. After a few minutes, it showed that the strip from the kojic+water mixture started to breakdown whereas the one with Pond’s retained its color and structure. I don’t know about you but this pretty much says how regular whitening products can be too harsh for our skin.. better rethink your current whitening regimen, eh? *wink!
If that hasn’t convinced you yet, maybe you should try it yourself. 
Pond’s Pearl Cleansing Gel is available in 2 sizes: 50g for Php85, and 100g for P155. Pond’s Pearl Cleansing Gel is available nationwide in leading department stores, drugstores, supermarkets, groceries, and convenience stores.
