I have been using the Pond’s Lightening Facial Foam for 6 months and it gives me fairer skin. When I was restocking my toiletries, I found a new product from Pond’s – Pond’s Pearl Cleansing Gel and so I bought it to compare it from my previous Pond’s facial wash.
Pond’s Pearl Cleansing Gel (P 85) has Pearl Essence that can whiten skin. It also has an oxygenated formulation to refresh and cleanse the skin without drying.
The packaging is transparent and you would see the bubbles (or should I say the oxygenation effect). I put a pea size amount on my fingers, it was a bit dense but the liquid is crystal clear. See the photo below.
If I would compare it to Pond’s Lightening Facial Foam, the Pearl Cleansing Gel has lighter fragrance.
When I was applying the gel on my face, I’ve noticed that it does not make more bubbles so I was a bit worried that my face would be not so clean. After washing, I did not see the whitening effect as promised. However, it is true that the product does not make your face dry.
Would I recommend it? For people with dry skin, I’d recommend it because it could moisturize your skin so well. However, personally, it didn’t meet my expectation. It’s odd that my face was not as white as before (comparing to my neck) and my normal skin tends to get a little oily for longer hours. I only like its scent.
Aug 11, 2015 update: Using this product makes my skin healthy, like it's glowing. Still, I can't see the whitening effect.
