BB creams have become quite popular now a days. They have become an inevitable part of every girl’s make up routine.The important thing is to choose the correct BB cream which suits us well depending on the skin type and skin tone. So in the search of the perfect BB cream for my normal skin I picked up Ponds All In One BB + Fairness Cream some time back. Let’s see what it has to offer.

My Review Of The Product
The packaging of Ponds BB Cream is cute and the cream comes in a sturdy white tube with a pink label and a silver cap. It’s attractive and also very convenient to use. The nozzle dispenses the cream very nicely and there are no chances of wastage.Well coming to the actually cream, it is thick (thicker than the other BB creams available in the market) but blends in decently except on extremely dry areas.Once applied and blended with fingers it stays for about 4-5 hours and gives a semi matte finish. It smells wonderful too.
The coverage is decent. With this cream, 80% of my dark circles are covered and the eye contour area looks radiant.On my face, I don’t need a lot of coverage (for blemishes and spots) other than around the eyes and this cream does the job of evening out my skin tone very well though I am not sure if it really lightens the skin (neither do I want it to so I am ok with it).One thing to note here is that its a beauty cream and not a moisturiser, you may need to use a separate moisturiser specially if your skin is dry.
The biggest issue with it is that it comes in only one shade, which is made for medium to fair skin. So if you have a darker skin tone give this cream a miss or you may end up looking unnaturally white.It is best suited for normal skin type. If your skin is dry, you’ll have to use a moisturiser before applying this cream while for people with oily skin you’ll need touch ups of compact powder after few hours .
Overall its a good BB cream and a great budget option for Indian women. It does work for me. Definitely worth a try !!!
