Pond's Luminous Finish BB+

In my most recent Mama VoxBox( click influenster for more Vox Box info), I received a Pond's Luminous Finish BB+ in Light and Medium.  The medium I gave to my beautiful olive tone big sis to try out, and the light color seemed to match well for me.  

Quick personal overview: BB Creams and I usually don't usually get along.  I like for a face product to cover my red blotches, occasional blemishes, sun spots, scars, and all that jazz so I like a full coverage finish.  BB creams usually don't match my shade to my liking and are not full coverage, although there are a few I've tried that get a thumbs up.  

So with that said, I'll always be open to trying just about anything, because you never know what might surprise you, and this one did.

The most definite Pros:

  • SPF 15 (although not broad spectrum)
  • Matched my skin color well
  •  Covered all of my skin flaws nicely by providing a med-fuller coverage
  • Non-comedogenic or pore clogging
  • target's dark spots and fades them over time
  • Long lasting and didn't melt off like  a lot of products when I ran my steamer at work during facials! Schwiiing!
  • Didn't feel heavy on the skin
  • Affordable

  • I seriously can't think of any and I've been wearing it for 2 weeks straight to give best review possible (will update if any come to mind)
Overall, great BB Cream.  Honestly, great stuff! Scarily reminds me of my MAC Studio Sculpt foundation!  Pond's, your cold cream will no longer be the only thing that comes to mind when I hear your brand :)  You can find it here at, or at any major drugstore or retailer.
