POND’S Perfect Colour Complex Naturals range review

If you’re a POND’S fan you’ll probably be familiar with their fairly new-ish Perfect Colour Complex range. Like their Flawless Radiance range, it aims to help even out your skin tone but includes the addition of anti-inflammatory antioxidant green tea extract which, POND’S reckon, can help inhibit the production of melanin which causes pigmentation.

I was given the ranges three products to play with; the Gentle Exfoliating Facial Foam, Toning Lotion and Day Cream.

While I didn’t use the toner (R24,99) as it contains a lot of alcohol, I did enjoy using the facial foam. It did a good job of removing any make-up and didn’t leave my skin feeling dry and tight after use. I didn’t think it did a good job of exfoliating, however, but that’s okay as I use a separate scrub every few day or so as opposed to a daily exfoliator. At just R33,99 for 100mls it’s an awesome bargain face wash that I’d be happy to purchase myself.

The day cream (R31,99 for 50ml) had a nice, light texture that gave my combination skin just the right amount of hydration. Anyone with a drier skin type would probably be better off using one of POND’S creams as opposed to this lotion but, like I said, being a combo-girl, it suited me just fine. The only downer here is that the Green Tea is listed right at the bottom along with the preservatives so I don’t know if you’re really going to benefit from it. On the bright side, the lotion does have niacinamide (a form of vitamin B) sitting up right at the top which is a good, proven skin tone-evening ingredient. If anything, this is what’s doing all the heavy lifting in this particular product.

Anyway, while I haven’t used it long enough to notice if it made a difference to my pigmentation, the theory’s sound enough to trust it should have some effect. I’d just team it with a good anti-wrinkle serum, preferably something that contained retinol, and a high SPF.

Love, love
