I have to admit that I was very reluctant at first to try the Pond’s Gold Radiance collection ‘cause I wasn’t ready to let go of my Pond’s Age Miracle products yet. For the longest time, they have been my secret beauty weapon, it is because of them that I look younger than my age (okay, enough of the boos!). It is the only line of beauty product that sits well on my skin, or so I thought. What made me decide to give this Pond’s Gold Radiance a try was the fact that after a week of continued use, my mom (who obviously is more adventurous than I am when it comes to trying out new stuffs) celebrated her 60th birthday looking like 50! So in the name of beauty, I broke up with Pond’s Age Miracle and gave this new Pond’s Gold Radiance line a try.
I started with the Pond’s Gold Radiance Revealed Facial Foam. I wash my face with it in the morning and at night just before I sleep. After every wash, I get that squeaky clean feeling on my face that I usually get only when I scrub it really hard with a facial loofah (yes, I used to be that unforgiving when washing my face). But with this though, I don’t have to go that far, the micro beads do the job for me. I have a combination skin type, so I like how it also regulates the amount of oil on my face without leaving it totally dry. Here is a snaphot of myself early morning after the wash.
The facial foam seems compatible with my skin (meaning no stingy feeling, rashes or zit breakouts) so I took another tentative step and started with the Pond’s Gold Radiance Precious Youth Serum after three days. I put this on before I go to sleep, I like the thought that it will work magic on my skin while I rest since it has the highest concentration of gold microparticles, and surprisingly it never leaves me disappointed in the morning. My face is smooth to touch, must be the texturizing effect that they were talking about. It has also become firmer and just glows like I am in the pink of health (I am pretty sure that these are not all in my imagination) since I started with this. Here are pictures taken randomly in the more than two weeks that I have been using the product.
Next on top of my list of Pond’s Gold Radiance products to try is the Pond’s Gold Radiance Youth Reviving Eye Cream since I am getting some unsightly bags around my eyes now. I have finally talked myself into using a day cream also so I would be starting with the Youthful Day Cream too, I read that it has SPF 15 that can give enough sun protection everyday and has anti-aging benefits to boot (this is what my mom uses).
Pond’s never ceases to amaze me, it has truly evolved since the time of the Pond’s Cold Cream days, the product that my grandmothers were crazy about. It seems like theres’ really no stopping Pond’s in its quest to make us radiantly beautiful everyday. And it does look like we’ve strike gold again with this new Ponds Gold Radiance line.:)
