Pond’s Luminous Finish BB+ Cream Review


Happy Monday my lovelies! The Makeup Examiner hopes that your weekend was full of fabulousness. “How was mine?” you ask. Lovely, simply lovely. TME had the opportunity to catch up on some reading and devoured “Revenge Wears Prada: The Devil Returns,” which is a fun summer weekend read.

Moving on, as lovely loyal readers know, with cosmetics The Makeup Examiner looks at two main qualities; pigment and consistency. But with BB creams, there is an effectiveness quality that needs to be observed as well. So let’s get to the get and check out the good, the bad and the beautiful about Pond’s Luminous Finish BB+ Cream.

Pond’s is a classic beauty brand that has managed to stay current throughout the brand’s 150-year history. Having just moved into the arena of makeup in July, does their latest offering measure up? Pond’s Luminous Finish BB+ Cream priced at $9.99 for 1.5 ounces is a dollar or so more then other mass brands, although The Makeup Examiner would still easily place this product within the budget beauty category. Plus, there’s also a $2 coupon on Pond’s Facebook page!

The first thing that TME noticed was the SPF 15 and the next, the lovely scent. So many BB creams have this chemical odor so it was refreshing to find a light, clean smell. Pond’s Luminous Finish BB+ Cream has a cashmere consistency and amazing buildable coverage. I love this particular versatility factor, as I haven’t found varying coverage with any other BB cream, yet.

Pond’s Luminous Finish BB+ Cream is available in two shades, Light and Medium, which is the downside. Of course, this is the downside of most BB creams and hopefully more shades will be added. There is where any negative about this product stops. With Vitamin E to both help protect and promote skin repair, and glycerin to keep skin hydrated, The Makeup Examiner saw a difference in her skin’s appearance after just 10 days.

Overall, Pond’s Luminous Finish BB+ Cream is a fantastic product and is currently The Makeup Examiner’s favorite BB cream. Pond’s Luminous Finish BB+ Cream is available nationwide at CVS. As always, The Makeup Examiner hope that readers have found this review to be helpful and for those that have used Pond’s Luminous Finish BB+ Cream, leave a comment below!
