Pond’s Pearl Cleansing Gel Review

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.

Disclaimer: Some products may not work for me, but can work well for others. This review is simply based on my experience.


  1. A balance appreciation of the product thank you very much for this, consumers will benefit from this piece.

  2. The last time I used any Pond's product was back in college hehe. I was still experimenting then. I'm not much into whitening products as well. Too bad you didn't really get the results you wanted. Thanks for the honest review! :)

  3. I have this one before, but unfortunately it does not work for me nag ka pimples me.

  4. I used Pond's Black before but I sropped it, nakakatamad kasi LOL!

    But now, I've realized the importance of using a separate cleanser for face and body, and I think is still the best brand out there.

  5. I've been a fan of ponds and I normally use 2 different ponds facial cleansers and I am really satisfied with it. Thank you for sharing your experience.
