Pond’s Pure White Deep Cleansing Facial Foam With Activated Carbon Review, Pictures & Swatches

Hello readers! How are you all doing? This is my first review on beautyandfashionfreaks. I hope you will like it and will accept me as a part of this beauty and fashion blog. In all my reviews, I always try to be honest regarding the positives and the negatives of any product. In this post, I am going to review the Pond’s Pure White Deep Cleansing Facial Foam With Activated Carbon. I believe skin care begins with clean skin because of which I love stocking up face washes. I always keep two to three different face washes on my bathroom shelf.

What Pond’s Pure White Deep Cleansing Facial Foam With Activated Carbon claims?

Pond’s reveals it’s little black beauty secret with the new powerful Pond’s Pure White Facial Foam! It has the technology of activated carbon that attracts deep-seated ‘Black’ dirt caused by impurities, oil, and make-up to reveal a pure white you. It is first of its kind to be formulated with activated carbon, which works with “black attracts black”. Carbon when heated or “activated” becomes 8x porous; hence, increasing its ability to detoxify and gently exfoliate dead skin cells while retaining the needed moisture

Directions for Using Pond’s Pure White Deep Cleansing Facial Foam With Activated Carbon:

Start by wetting your face. Foam the cleanser in your palms. Apply to your face using gentle, circular motion and then rinse off.

My take on Pond’s Pure White Deep Cleansing Facial Foam With Activated Carbon

This comes in a very sleek, black colour tube with a flip open cap. This tube is leak proof and travel friendly. Fragrance of this face wash is mild and pleasant. It does not irritate my nose. The fragrance goes off soon after I wash my face. The face wash is pearly grey in colour and has tiny granules of activated carbon.

Consistency wise, it is thick and creamy. Due to thick consistency I need only a pea sized quantity for my face. It lathers very well. This facial foam does not contain SLS and parabens. It gets rinse off entirely and easily without putting in much effort.

After using this face wash, my face feels very clean. It removes routine makeup, dirt and grime nicely. It controls sebum production by the skin for hours after use. I like using it in summers. However it makes my skin a little stretchy. So I have to dab on some lotion immediately after using this face wash especially in winters.

It instantly brightens my complexion and does remove tan to some extent too. I have not experienced any breakouts or skin irritation while using this facial foam. The beads in this face wash are not good enough to provide proper exfoliation.

Overall, it is a pocket friendly product that can be used on daily basis. It has certain minor cons that can be overlooked. For me the positives of this face wash outnumber the negatives.

    Great review hun. I have only tried one pond’s product which was their moisturizer many years ago. I like the packaging it’s seems sanitary and I also like that it has a thicker consistency.
    Nice review.

    I have used this one and found it average. It dried out my skin, I have a combination to dry skin.

    Very nice review dear.


    (April 24, 2014 - 2:20 pm)

    First of all, sorry for delay in replying. I was away at work. … Secondly, Thank you everybody for your warm welcome and sweet words. I agree dry skinned beauties might not find it very nice.-If you put a moisturizer soon after, it would work. It cleanses really well. 🙂


    (April 24, 2014 - 3:12 pm)

    Nice review , I like ponds face washes..I agree most of them make the skin feel stretched..


      (April 24, 2014 - 4:05 pm)

      Hi Tanmayee.. I agree with you. However, you camn always dab a lotion soon after.. This is good for tanning,.
