Review: Pond's Flawless White BB Cream in Light!

Flawless BB cream! I've always been a fan of new bb creams and love trying new products, so when I saw this on a few ladies blogs I had to get my hands on it eventually! When I was on a holiday in Krabi, Thailand some months ago I picked up this mini 8ml tube of Pond's BB cream at a 7-11 and I LOVE how Thailand is an asian country that has mini sizes of most beauty/skincare products!

As of a few months ago Singapore has finally brought in Pond's BB cream in two shades, however we only have them in the full size and not in this small mini size! When I travel next time I will be picking up more mini sizes like this!

Continue below for the BB cream review!

Pond's Flawless White BB Cream in Light!
Pond's Flawless White BB Cream in Light! This is an "All in One Advanced Whitening BB cream" and apparently has been designed for asian skin!
Pond's Flawless White BB Cream in Light! Isn't this mini size just so adorable? I quite love the pink/white packaging, Pond's reminds me of Neutrogena, very clean and simple.
Packaging & Product!

This mini sized BB cream is packaged similarly to the regular size with the box packaging a shiney metallic finish box that's very attractive. I also like the packaging of the mini tube very much, it's still detailed and looks comprehensive. However the full sized tube has the same metallic finish as the box whereas the mini has a opaque plastic finish. It's a super practical design and I think these sizes are not only amazing because it allows you to test a small amount first but it's great for short traveling trips!

This BB cream has many claims and it actually really lives up to almost all of them! It has SPF  UVA/UVB protection, it does give a natural coverage,  it has a lightweight non-oily texture, it does even out the skin and reduces dark spots/pigments. This shade in light is a light neutral flesh shade that's  great for NC 15-20, you could get away with this if you're NC 25 but you'd need to use a powder to make it match you better.

This BB cream is very light in texture and yet covers very well, I was really surprised by how good it feels and looks as I didn't think it would be this good. It really is like a thinner texture version of Lioele's Triple the Solution BB cream!  This worn with a layer of my foundation powder on top really last all day long and I was very impressed. It stays on very well and still looked fresh at the end of the day. Keep in mind my skin is more normal to slightly combination.

Swatch of Pond's Flawless White BB Cream in Light!
My bare face! I have eye puffiness and darkness under the eyes mainly!
This BB cream has a light-medium coverage, it is buildable and can layer it nicely without feeling heavy or thick at all. As you can see below, it's brightening and yet doesn't look grey or ghostly at all. It's a great everyday BB cream for those who are looking for a new drugstore BB cream to try!

Pond's Flawless White BB Cream in Light, The Face Shop Power Perfection BB cream in 2 Natural Beige, Peripera I Love BB cream, Lioele Triple the Solution BB cream!
The shade of this Pond's bb cream is very similar  to my BB cream from The Face Shop and Peripera! Although Peripera is a bit more grey and beige. Lioele is the most natural skin color with also golden undertones besides beige. Pond's has the lightest coverage compared to the other three but it's texture is also the lightest.

Pond's Flawless White BB Cream in Light!
Paid: Around 90-100 Thai Baht ! ($3.50-$4 SGD) 

I bought this in a 7/11 while on holiday in Thailand! I love how mini sizes of beauty/skincare products like this can be easily bought in Malaysia/Thailand/Indonesia/Philippines! I wish Singapore brought these mini sizes in!

Recommend: Yes! If you are light complexioned and you are keen on trying a lightweight BB cream that's thinner in texture and yet has good coverage do give this a shot! There's another tanner shade so it would be good for NC25-30!

Repurchase: No, not until I've finished up more of my bb creams! I've got plenty right now!

Bottom line: This BB cream is my definitely of a good solid BB cream that should be readily available. BB creams by how we know it here in Asia should have good coverage and should be like a foundation but usually with whitening/anti aging properties. If you can get your hands on this do check it out!

Thank you!


  1. I'm glad that this ended up working for you! I've been so suspicious of more Western branded BB Creams because they're so sheer with little to none Asian BB cream benefits.

  2. I have read a lot of positive reviews on this BB Cream. A friend of mine raved about this, but I didn't pick it up when I was in Indo last year. I might get it then next time as I'll be flying home in February ^^
    I wish I could only use BB Cream for my face.. I always need foundation because of the coverage as my bare skin is not as good as yours. You have a flawless base to begin with!

  3. Your skin looks AMAZING With this BB cream! So even and flawless and radiant! You have me convinced :-)

  4. Oh, that sounds nice! I don't think we have this here, which is a shame.

  5. This looks like a lovely shade and the mini sized product is adorable! I wish we had more things like this available in the UK. You have such gorgeous skin too, I need to get my skin looking as clear and fresh as yours so I can get away with wearing a lighter foundation/bb cream xx

  6. Oh, I love how it covers and looks so natural on you. I think I have seen a Pond's BB cream (called luminous finish) here and the reviews aren't bad at all...Maybe I should pick it up.

  7. This sounds really good! A thinner version of the Lioele? I LOVED that stuff! Now I really want to try it. It looks really natural too :)
