After my Maybelline BB cream ran out (finally!), I had the chance to try the Pond's Flawless White BB cream (Light). It's similar in almost every aspect to the Maybelline BB cream, differing only in consistency and shade. Pond's gives off a light pink undertone, giving you a youthful glow, in contrast to Maybelline's grayish undertone. Coverage-wise, they're almost the same, giving minimal coverage ideal for everyday use. The Pond's BB has a thicker consistency and thus, more product is used when applying. This is also suitable for all skin types.
I don't know about its claim, 'lightens from within' but what I do know is that it brightens my face whenever I use it! This product has an SPF of 30 so you can skip the sunblock if you're not planning on staying under the sun for too long. It is also very affordable, which is great for those who are on a budget!
To be honest, the only negative thing I can think of is that this product is too bulky, and will hardly fit in your purse. I suggest you bring a more portable BB cream when traveling. But if you can afford the extra space, why not?
Will I repurchase? Definitely!
