Ponds Cold Cream Deep Cleanser
Net wt: 60 ml
Cost: 130.00 pesos (approx:$2)

Hey girl!

Did you know that cold cream is the basis of early beauty regimen developed by some brands including PONDS? Asked google and that is what I learned from a further research about cold cream. Before I was even born, cold cream already existed. However, I just learned it from now. Lols!

What is cold cream?

It is a product of emulsification (binding two substances that normally don't stick together). Basically, it is water on oil. Earlier, it was used as how it was today - a cleanser.

Added to my typical regimen, I am actually torn and confused where should I put this on line. It can be used as a make-up remover and facial cleanser. It was first known to be used as deep cleanser and removes all day dirt. It cleanses the remaining dirt that is not remove by soap and water. It goes with the first step of every beauty regimen which is cleansing.

Upon using, it is really moisturizing. Even after I rinsed it with water, it still a little greasy. It is my first time to use cold cream and I am not used to the process. 

Here's how to use:  

  • Apply pea-sized amount on parts of your face. Spread and gently massage all over the face.
  • Tissue off or remove with wash cloth
  • Reapply if necessary
  • Wash off with water and facial wash

What is interesting with cold cream is that it claimed to go into deep-down pores for deeper cleansing. It removes make-up effortlessly because of its oil-based content. And yes, it kept the face really well-moisturized. It smells like an old salve (no sweet, pleasant, lovely scent). It has a neutral scent, but wasn't really sure.

Overall thoughts: I am not so sure on this one. Maybe if I wanted a 2n1 boost of moisturization and a make-up remover. Then, it should pass. It isn't that expensive too to grab a try. It is just a hassle for me to apply, wipe off and cleanse after. It is too much for the 1 step of beauty regimen. It makes me lazier even more. Haha! But, it is great to know some of the background use of this cream even before.

Let's talk again on my next blog.
Yes, YOU lovely gorgeous.

Love yourself because you are beautiful.

Hugs and Kisses,
