Ponds cold cream has a scent that instantly takes me back to my childhood. Upon opening it I got a waft of nostalgia that reminded me of my Mother. Ponds cream is the orignial makeup cleanser. It has been used through four genarations of women through out my family. So you can image my shock when I heard it is Kylie Jenner’s favourite makeup remover! Kylie Jenner is worth 14.6 million. So when she announced on snapchat that her favourite makeup remover of choice was under 5 euro, I needed to get my hands on it! So what exactly is Ponds Cold Cream?
Ponds cold cream has been around for over 100 years! Yes you heard me right 100 years. Unlike ordinary cleansers Ponds cold cream cleanser is 50 percent moisturier. It deep cleans and removes dirt and makeup, even stubborn waterproof mascara. It infuses your skin with vital moisture all in one easy routine. For clean, soft, and glowing skin, put your trust in a classic.
We are commonly used to seeing cleansers in a squeeze bottle that can be applied to a cotten pad, but Ponds Cold cream comes in a very retro jar that you scoop out. ( If you are concerenced about hygine just use a small teaspoon to scoop some out.) I quite liked the retro feel to this packaging. There is a powdery scent to it that I adore!
How to apply
Take a small bit of cold cream and massage into your skin, in a circular motion. ( It would also work great if you use an electric face brush) It is a thick texture which might feel weird if you normally use really light formulas like micellar water for example) but i actually LOVE it. It feels super luxurious and moisturising. You can apply it right on to your eyes, gently rubbing it on to your lashes. Not only does it melt away waterproof mascara but it also doesn’t hurt or sting. Leave it dissolve on your skin for a few seconds – and as if like magic your makeup begins to melt off effortlessly! You then take a damped face cloth ( or cotten pads) and begin to remove the cream. You will be shocked to see just how deep into your pores it gets. Your skin will be left spotless with an extremely fresh clean feeling, without feeling tight. As Ponds Cold cream is 50% moisturiser, after cleansing your skin it will feel super soft like you have just applied moisturiser.
The price tag
I picked up Ponds Cold cream from my local pharamacy for less the 5 euro. It is a meduim sized pot, but a little goes along way and should last you a little over a month. So I would say it is excellent value for money. So as you may have gathered I now heart Ponds Cold cream cleanser.
