myPOND'S 7-DAY BEAUTY BLOG

Aging came upon me through my vanity mirror middle of this year. For the first time, I noticed that fine lines and crow's feet are already creeping in under my eyes and forehead. I realized that age is truly catching up on me and I should get some NEW help since the anti-aging creams I was using then looks like it's not working.

I was already looking for a new brand of creams when I saw Aileen's invite to Pond's A Taste of Beauty Event. I had fun at the event and at the same time learned more about its anti-aging product line called Pond's Age Miracle. I was very convinced on what I heard so I tried the Daily Resurfacing Cream on myself.

Here are the notes of my 7-day wonderful experience with Pond's:

DAY 1 - PEA SIZE
The first thing I noticed was it's nice smell and shade of light pink. I put on a pea-size of the cream and realized that it was light on my skin and was not greasy unlike the others. I was also thankful that it has SPF which helped me protect myself from the sun.

Day 1, July 6 - Right Angle Day 1, July 6 - Center Day 1, July 6 - Left Angle


DAY 2 - LOOKS PROMISING
Pond's passed my 24-hour test! I had no signs of irritation, break-out or redness on the first day of application. It also blended well with my powder foundation which I use everyday. It is indeed very promising!

Day 2, July 7 - Right Angle Day 2, July 7 - Center Day 2, July 7 - Left Angle


DAY 3 - GREAT AT NIGHT, TOO!
I am used to moisturizing my face before I sleep so I decided to use Pond's at night, too. There's no rule that you cannot use day creams during night so I gave it a shot. My face feels fresh and clean after using it and I noticed that my skin is becoming fairer and rosier each day.

Day 3, July 8 - Right Angle Day 3, July 8 - Center Day 3, July 8 - Left Angle


DAY 4 - IS IT WORKING?
I went to Cabanatuan to meet one of our subscribers and my single status became a hot topic in one of the conversations. The customer, whom I've met the first time that night, gave me sound advices and told me not to lose hope because he thinks that I am beautiful. He even told me that I look younger than my age. Wow!

Day 4, July 9 - Right Angle Day 4, July 4 - Center Day 4, July 4 - Right Angle


DAY 5 - BEAUTIFUL MORNINGS
Despite lack of sleep I was amazed that I looked radiant when I woke up. This was probably attributed to my improved regimen and twice a day use of the cream. I also noticed that the tiny pimples which I had, even before I started using Pond's, are now dried up and all healed.

Day 5, July 10 - Right Angle Day 6, July 11 - Right Angle


DAY 6 - AN IMPROVEMENT
The picture on the right is my favorite among the lot. It was taken on the 6th day of Pond's use. I was tired and was not wearing make-up yet the picture turned out really well. I also realized that there was an improvement in my crow's feet compared to how it looked before.

DAY 7 - HERE'S TO BRIGHTER DAYS!
After 7 days of using Pond's, I can say that it works well with my skin and will continue using it. It's non-greasy, feels good on my skin, and I can see that my face is more radiant than ever. It's never too early to use anti-aging products. Just think of it as a "delay of aging" process which I am sure you will not regret when you hit your 40s. With Pond's Age Miracle, I can see that there are brighter and younger days ahead of me! Try it for yourself!

Day 7, July 12 - Left Angle Day 7, July 12 - Left Angle Day 7, July 7 - Right Angle


[Note: I've always been a one-angle wonder so I decided to use 3 different poses for this challenge to fairly see the difference. You may view all the pictures on my Flickr.]

Kristine said...

Hi Abbie! Haven't seen you in months and your pictures show that you look more radiant as ever (naks!) I have been curious about those anti-aging creams actually. 'Been meaning to try them. I guess it's about time to switch to the one that will benefit my skin more. Thanks for sharing your blog. Hope we can get together sometime... Miss ya!

Abbie said...

Hi, Marj! Hi, Anonymous!

Thanks! :D

janine said...

ok, so my comment was a bit vague. i wrote "in fairness, may improvement nga! :)". i didn't think you needed any improvement on your face whatsoever anymore so yeah, the effect of Pond's turned out to be a pleasant surprise.

unfair nga e coz you don't look your age na, now you even look younger than me pa. haha. walang justice sa mundo. booooo!

hope you win this. :D

Arvee said...

I'll recommend Olay 7 Signs of Aging Cream. It's a one day wonder. Pagkakabit mo palang radiant na skin mo. That's the cream I use and all my officemates are using it now. Someone actually mistook me for a college kid once! =)

Abbie said...

Hehehe! Thanks, Arvee!

Olay Total Effects was actually the moisturizer "that this did not worked for me" that I was talking about in the first paragraph of this post. :) I tried it first but it did not suit me - redness and itchiness all over. :)
