So, this winter my skin was going crazy. Not only was it getting extremely dry but i was also facing breakouts every now and then :( . During summers i was using the Maybelline bb stick, which was doing a fabulous job for me. However it started flaking my skin as winters approached. The month of November was the worst for me, I remember going to various cosmetic stores trying out bb creams for every day use but as the SA would apply the cream my skin would start flaking.
So one day to my rescue came the lovely Ponds bb cream. I had never used Ponds in my life so i was really scared in the beginning.

Review- Coming to my experience with the product, this baby is awesome! It blends very easily into the skin and i found that it even photographs well. it contains spf 30 PA++ which protects us from the harmful raise of the sun and ageing.
See, it blends so well! Also this cream provides good coverage and moisturisation throughout the day. However i would not advice you to skip your daily moisturiser. One does need to set this up with powder for it to last longer. For dry skinned beauties this a sure winner. However those with oily skin may not find it apt. but the good news for oily skinned beauties is that you can use it as a primer to make your eyeshadows last longer! One more fact worth noting is that it did not cause me any breakouts. Also it lasts for 3 hours or so.
You for sure must be convinced regarding how much i adore this bb cream. I bet it can give a run to other high end brands in the bb cream world!
