Pond’s Age Miracle Daily Regenerating Facial Foam - Review

What they claim: A daily regenerating cleanser that helps fight signs of ageing through gentle micro-exfoliation.
  • Micro-exfoliates aged skin and reveals new skin
  • Cleanses thoroughly without leaving skin dry or flaky
  • Reduces dullness and enhances overall skin radiance

How to enjoy thoroughly cleansed, bright and velvety smooth skin:

 
Use every morning and evening as the first step in your skin care routine, or anytime for instant renewal and refreshment. In case of contact with eyes, rinse with water.

 
Key Ingredients:

 
Glycerin, Water, Sodium CoCoyl Glycinate, Glycol Distearate, Lauramidopropyl Betaine, Stearic Acid, Sodium Mrthyl Cocoyl Taurate, Disodium Lauriminodiacetate, Citric Acid, Ceteth-20, Silica, Polyquatemium-39, Perfume, DMDM Hydantoin, Carbomer, Silica/CI 73360, Butylene Glycol, Isomerized Linoleic Acid, Cetyl Alcohol, Acetamide MEA, Lodopropynyl Butylcarbamate, Ammonium Lactate, Retinyl Palmitata, Helianthus Annuus (Sunflower) Seed Oil, BHT

 

Price: Rs. 225 /- for a tube of 100 gms

Pros:

1. Very, very moisturising. If you read the ingredient list, you will notice that Glycerin is the first ingredient. Ingredients are always listed in their order of quantity and to be honest, this is the first face wash I have used that has glycerin as it's highest and main component. Most of you will know that Glycerin is a wonderful product for the skin, it hydrates and moisturises without creating oiliness.

2. Softens skin without leaving behind any oiliness or a film on the skin.

3. You need very little of this for the entire face and neck. It is a foam that turns into cream upon contact with water.

4. It did make my skin appear more radiant and brighter. Not sure how it did that though.

Cons

1. The exfoliating beads are far too small and tiny, IMO, to do any exfoliation.

2. The price is very high for a face wash.

Will I re-purchase: No.

This is very expensive for a face wash, considering all it does is moisturise well. The exfoliation is too mild to be effective.

What is your favourite face wash at the moment?

  3. @Anamika: Yea, it is quite expensive. I wld use Garnier when I was in college. I agree, they were okish..

  4. Ya I agree that they're super expensive. I wanted to try it, but then I ended up buying the one for oily skin which is also a foam-based face wash. Actually I think the entire age miracle range is expensive. The day cream (which is spf 15 & PA++)is 140 bucks for 10gms! I recently bought it coz they have a special offer on it (for 99 bucks!)

  5. Do they have another one for oily skin (previous comment)? I saw the one you have reviewed and was unsure if it would be any good...sounds good to me now :-)

  6. I've used this one...did no wonders for me. but price is not really a con here since as u said, a tiny amount is enough. my tube lasted 3 months(used twice everyday). so, it turns out to be cheaper than others. but not worth a repurchase.

  9. I love the neutrogena facewash..they cost around 170 Rs for a medium sized bottle, and i absolutely love it. Its a very very deep cleanser and you can actually feel your face feel tingly and fresh after that. Its my go-to product once im back home from work...

  10. What I use for face wash is from Sundaram- their sandal in a clay pot.

    Do check their product catalogue

    http://www.sundaramsoap.org/Catalogue.pdf

    It is exotic.

  11. @Poohkie: Yea the age miracle creams are expensive, because they have some patented molecules CLA4 complex in it. But they have reduced the prices now na? The 50 gm tub is available for 299/-

    @Rads: No. They don't have a facewash in the age miracle line for oily skin. But Ponds has other face washes in other lines- white beauty and so on, one of theses lines consists of products for oily skin.

    @Anon: Yea, you do need a tiny bit only.

    @Simran: I guess the best is to get body shop buffer and then use it with face wash of your choice :)

    @Palak: Yea, she may like it :)

    @Mehak: I have heard a lot of good things about Neutrogena myself. It is said to be a very good face wash for combination - oily skin. Glad to know it works so well for you. It feels great when you have a good cleanser - it makes a huge difference to the skin.

    @Kiran: That sounds so super exotic: sandal in clay pot. I will def chk out this line :)

  12. I have used the face wash and it did brighten my skin first five six times of the application but later on it is acting just like any normal face wash. Nothing special about it and is too expensive. And, exfoliation is not its strong suit any how. Causes dryness if you use the face wash in large quantity as very little amount of it is enough for covering face and neck both. Foams a lot.

Reetha, Amla & Shikakai Home Made Shampoo - Weekend Experiment

Good Morning Lovelies, I hope your weekend was fun. Mines was, well, ho-hum, but anyways, we are not talking about that here (let’s save that cribbing for twitter).
I have been suffering from quite a bit of hair fall since some time. I have tried changing products to using intensive conditioning and the works. It stops the hair fall for while, but then it rears its ugly head again.
So on lark, & for lack of better things to do, my best friend & I decided to make some Reetha – Amla – Shikakai shampoo at home. This century old ayurvedic herbal concoction is reputed to not only strengthen hair, but also darken it and stop hair fall.
I got the 3 biggies from a local kirana store. All 3 are priced at 15 Rs for 100gms.

How to: Soak 5 pieces of Shikakai, 4 balls of Reetha  (Soapnut) & handful of Amla (Indian Gooseberry)  in about 500 ml of water overnight. In the morning, heat the mixture on gas till it just starts to boil. Let it cool, when lukewarm mash all the amla, reetha and…

Skin Care Myth: Sunscreen will stop you from Tanning

Image via Wikipedia I know I did a recent article on skin care myths (read it here), but I don't know how I forgot to mention this particular myth. In any case I think this warranted a post on its own.

Myth: If I use a suncreen regularly and religiously, I will not tan. 

Fact: This is a very simplistic statement. But before I bust this myth, kindly bear through a science lecture. This is to bring all readers of all backgrounds on the same knowledge level.



Lets define sunscreen (from Wikipedia):Sunscreen (also commonly known as sunblock or sun cream) is a lotion, spray, gel or other topical product that absorbs or reflects "some" of the sun's ultraviolet (UV) radiation on the skin exposed to sunlight and thus helps protect against sunburn. Sunscreen helps protect only against direct DNA damage as it cannot dissipate UV as harmless heat.

The SPF of a sunscreen is a laboratory measure of the effectiveness of sunscreen — the higher the SPF, the more protection a sunscreen …

I made "Washed Ghee" at home and it turned out great!

Yesterday I posted about the importance of fat in our diet. While doing research for the same I came across the recipe for "Washed Ghee" or Shata Dhaut Ghrita (100 times washed ghee).

After I read about this miracle at home cream, it was inevitable that I would try to create this cream myself. All I needed apparently was some cow ghee & water.

So I made it last evening. And here is how it went.


For those readers who haven't read the earlier post: Hundred times washed ghee is prepared from organic cow milk ghee by washing it in purified water, repeatedly, 100 times in a copper vessel, using a specific prescribed method while chanting some mantras

This procedure transforms the ghee into a soft, cooling, nourishing, silky unguent that is used as a traditional moisturizer and anti wrinkle skin cream. It produces radiant and glowing skin, especially for people with easily inflamed skin. It can be used as a daily face and body moisturizer or for facial massage. Apply it for…
