POND'S Flawless Radiance BB Review

Soweto, South Africa
Hey guys, hope you are well and okay today I'm reviewing the POND'S Flawless Radiance All-in-One BB Cream. I will just jump straight to the review cause I have my thoughts here. 

The Claim
POND'S says the following on the BB: "The All-in-One Advanced Even Tone BB Cream with SPF 30 PA++ from POND'S that covers outside and helps to even skin tone inside! It gives you natural coverage that is especially designed to match your skin tone instantly. While its even tone actives are known to penetrate deep to continuously even your skin tone and reduce dark spots from 
within the epidermal layer". 

The Product: 
The POND'S Flawless Radiance All-in-One BB Cream comes in a tube and has that all round classic POND'S pink colour. I can't complain much with the tube because it allows for the the product to come out in a controlled manner (hope I make sense here). The BB I tested comes in shade the Chocolate, and when you squeeze it out a thick-ish creamy product comes out. 

My Experience: 
I have been using the Ponds Age Miracle BB Cream shade Chocolate (follow the link and see my previous review), which is perfect for me as it has anti-aging benefits and I must say that the POND'S Flawless Radiance All-in-One BB Cream doesn't do it for me because I'm dealing with a lot of things when it comes to my facial skin. Firstly the under-eye darkness and dryness are not that well hidden with the cream. I know that BB's are just tinted moisturizers but it must not leave my skin looking patchy as it does not blend well with my skin tone I feel like it is missing something.... 
 HEY HOLD-UP before you go there are some good news here, if you have dry patchy skin like mine, you will want to use the BB before wearing your foundation as it will enable the foundation to sit beautifully on your skin. 

My Verdict:
Overall if you are 3 shades darker than me and don't have major skin concerns you will love the BB as it will blend beautifully on your skin, but if you are my shade and have the same concerns like mine and still looking to buy the BB I recommend the PONDS Age Miracle BB Cream shade Chocolate. 


Have you tried any BB's and did they go?

Manicure Monday | TV Talk

On my nails I'm wearing Essence Glow & Care shade Go For Glow
Gosh not another late post, but I'm glad that I'm actually going to post something. Slowly but surely I'm getting back to the swing of things and who knows maybe I'll start filming again for YouTube. This week it's beauty week here on the blog and I will be sharing make-up related products, but before I do that let us have some Monday Manicure Talk.... 

This weekend I didn't watch alot of TV, so the review will be based on one show that I did manage to watch, my sister was just Keeping Up With The Kardashians the whole weekend. 


This week it was the chance for the top 10 to perform and like Randall (one of the judges said), it was just lame top 10 behavior the contestants were just not singing, so here is what I thought of each performance. 

1. Boring but okay
2. Loved the Lira performance
3. Bawo not Pawo (such a horrible mistake)
4. Ndawo yami yes!!!
5. I think he has found his voice 
6. Oooh my Bey-once!!! a bit gimicky LOL but I'm a Bey fan so I will vote for her. 
7. Faith - Kulungile baba perfomance of the night. 
8. Paxton - Sang that Arriana song really well. 
9. Mary J Blige, time inappriate ... boring
10. Perfomance number 10 was a better verson of 3. 

The question of the night on IDOLS was what would you do with your 1 million rand prize winnings, and others had really nice answers and the most interesting one of them all was the Pap and Inkomazi(sour milk) machine idea I'm all on board with that one, 
cause I love me some good Inkomazi, so for just saying that she has my vote. 

Hope that we all have a great week. 

See you soon
