Pond’s Pearl Cleansing Gel Launch + Review

In an intimate media launch held at R Space Events last Tuesday, Pond's unveiled its latest breakthrough in skincare - the new Pond’s Pearl Cleansing Gel, the 1st whitening facial wash in gel formulation for whiter and fresher skin. Now that's the Pond's promise.

 Pond’s has always taken the lead when it comes to tried, tested, and true solutions in skincare. With the growing demand for products that address specific skin types and provide solutions for varied beauty concerns, it is but natural for the number one face care brand in the Philippines to extensively study and develop new formulations and formats for its skincare products, whilst latching on to the latest beauty musts.

Curious about some beauty and ‪makeup‬ trends for 2015?  Pond's resident beauty expert, Agoo Bengzon, led a Beauty Trends Talk and shared the latest beauty trends this season, namely the bare minimum or no makeup look, which is all about having great skin; the multi-taskers, or products that save you time and effort; and gels, which is present in many beauty products now.

“The Pond’s Pearl Cleansing Gel is this season’s beauty must, as it latches onto all these trends,” she shared. “The Pond’s Pearl Cleansing Gel does not only clean, but it also keeps dry areas hydrated, leaving you ready to bare your fresh face.”

This year, it’s all about getting healthy skin and sticking with a natural look. The Bare Minimum. In other words, the no makeup-makeup look. Groomed brows and moisturized lips, good skin, and just the right amount of confidence are all you need to achieve this beauty look.

“We saw how successful our launch for Pond’s Dewy Rose Gel was last year, so we decided to complete the whitening gel regimen in skincare,” said Jules Gollayan, Pond’s Senior Brand Manager. “The Pond’s Pearl Cleansing Gel stands out from regular whitening soaps because while it removes the dirt from your skin, it does not drag your skin’s moisture with it. It leaves your skin fresh and supple after washing.”

Using gel cleansers is perfect for sensitive skin, making the Pond’s Pearl Cleansing Gel the answer for women with specific skin types. With its lightweight formulation, it delivers hydration for those with oily or combination skin, and will not cause breakouts or clogged pores.

Pond’s Beauty Council members also shared their personal experiences using the latest from the Pond’s Institute. “What I loved about the Pond’s Pearl Cleansing Gel l was that after using it for several nights, it didn’t leave behind a rough texture that regular facial soaps normally do. Instead, my skin felt very smooth and clean,” said fashion blogger Laureen Uy.

“I don’t have to worry about piling on heavy makeup anymore. Taking a perfect, effortlessly pretty selfie is as easy as washing my face with the Pond’s Pearl Cleansing Gel,” says photographer and blogger Tricia Gosingtian.  Meanwhile, fashion and beauty blogger Patricia Prieto also testified to the product’s effectiveness, saying, “My skin always feels fresh and youthful now. It really lets my skin breathe!”

I've tried it and it's love at first wash. I love it so much I've added it already to my daily beauty regimen. Here's what I love about the Pond’s Pearl Cleansing Gel;

  • I love the gel formulation. It cleanses my skin without drying it out. It foams a little bit, it’s very easy to lather and since it's a gel, it won’t trickle or dribble down on your face and you can leave it on your face for a couple of minutes to make sure it totally cleans your face. 
  • Fast, easy take-off for clinging makeups. You can still use this for cleaning both light and heavily-applied makeup. If you’re wearing heavy makeup, I suggest you use Pond’s cold cream for initial cleaning then this one, and you’re good to go.
  • Has lighter in texture and generally have milder ingredients allowing its essential properties to dissolve faster and more effectively into the skin.  I like the fact that this cleanser is safe and gentle enough to use.
  • Allows better absorption because of its Pearl Essence, which is known and tested for noticeable skin whitening. With its oxygenated formulation, it cleanses and refreshes while locking in moisture, making skin softer and more supple.  It hydrates my skin and moisturizes it. 
  • Perfect for sensitive skin as it has milder ingredients compared to drying, whitening soaps that is too harsh to the skin. 
  • It has a wonderful and refreshing sweet scent which by itself gives you that fresh feeling that last for hours and even when you perspire, the scent won’t totally evaporate.
  • I love the packaging, It is an elongated, freshly pink tube (well, actually it’s mostly clear, the gel itself is clear), clean design and an attractive look. It is just the kind of product that makes your bathroom look sweet and sexy.
  • Very affordable. Pond’s Pearl Cleansing Gel 100g tube costs for Php 155; 50g for Php 85 only. 

Be one of the first to try the new Pond’s Pearl Cleansing Gel by logging on to Zalora on February 20. The first 100 shoppers will get the latest innovation from Pond’s shipped to them for free.  The Pond’s Pearl Cleansing Gel will be available nationwide in all leading department stores, drugstores, supermarkets, groceries, and convenience stores this March.

Get it before it's gone, Pond's Girls! It's definitely a product you should keep an eye on, because whiter skin never felt this fresh. :)
