I could only be amazed on the transition of Ponds from being a mass market consumer brand and low priced, into stepping up, providing consumers with skin-targeted specialty products for anti-aging, anti-acne ( oiliness ), and whitening. Day by day, I’ve been hearing raves about Ponds products, that I could not deny that the brand was getting better and better everyday!
I heard from the Swiper that Ponds eye creams were good ( remembering how she told me that they do effectively de-puff the eyes ), I plunged in and tried Pond’s Age Miracle Dual Eye-Therapy UV Eye Cream.
This Yin-Yang concept of having two colors of eye cream in a pot isn’t just for eye-candy purposes. The pink eye cream happens to be the Upper Eye Collagen Cream to be applied on the lids, that helps reduce the appearance of lines, wrinkle and crow’s feet, and the white eye cream is the Undereye Brightening Cream that helps reduce the appearance of puffiness and dark circle under the eyes.
So, on to the roadtest!
For the pink one, I noticed that it is not as absorbing as other eye creams that I’ve tried. It’s waxy in texture that is midway in being an eyeshadow primer, in my opinion, that this can even be as good as an eyeshadow primer because of its texture. It settles on the skin if the area is dry already, so I suggest applying this right after you wash your face for that chance of it being absorbed in the skin.
The white one, to be applied under the eyes, is creamier, and more of a thicker kind of moisturizer. It’s not greasy, it gets absorbed more into the skin more than the pink one, and my eye area feels less tight, and more “comfortable.” See, my skin is very very oily, including my eyelids, and I am happy that this does not cause the skin around my eye area to break out. Even if I wash my face with Obagi Clenziderm that has Salicylic Acid, my face gets refreshed and have some anti-acne effect, but my undereyes feel a bit tight from the dryness because the eyes have the thinnest skin on the entire face.
Aside from that, there’s also anti-aging benefits from this eye cream as it protects us from the sun’s UV rays, which is the number one source of our aging skin. But does it work? So far, I haven’t seen very significant effects for I have been using this for just two weeks, but I feel my eye area less tight, more hydrated, and looking less tired. This has real promise, and I can recommend this to those who want to try and have that eye cream experience. You’ll never do without an eyecream after trying one!
Overall, I can say that Ponds Age Miracle Dual Eye-Therpapy UV Cream is something that you can consider whether you use eye creams, or you are still starting out to use them. It’s a nice experience hydrating both the lids, and the under eyes, as we can not neglect the eyes as these peepers will be one of those parts of the face that will really add years to your face, if not taken cared of properly!
