Pond's Pure White Deep Cleansing Facial Foam

Hello Friends!
How are you all doing? Whats your plans this December?I am very excited to go my home during Christmas this time, will cook all my favorite recipes.Ok friends now regarding the review, do read on to know more.

What The Company Says?
Deep cleansing facial foam
Pond’s introduces a new skin cleansing philosophy: Black attracts Black. Pond’s Pure White Facial Foam is formulated with activated carbon that helps absorb and lift away ‘black’ dirt and impurities caused by dirt, oil and makeup from the skin surface and deep within pores, helping to reduce the causes of blemish to reveal your natural pure white skin.

Price:Rs 125 for 100 gm

Ingredients:Myristic acid, Water, Glycerin, Propylene glycol, Potassium hydroxide, Palmitic acid, Stearic acid, Decyl glucoside, Lauric acid, Glycol diastearate, Glyceryl Stearate, Polyquarternium-7, DMDM Hydantoin, Iodopropynyl butylcarbamate, Niacinamide, Charcoal powder, Carbon, Perfume, Disodium EDTA.

My Take on Pond's Pure White Deep Cleansing Facial Foam:
T V Commercials pose bad effects not only on children but also on we all adults.One of the best example of this is me myself.I bought this face wash immediately within few days after watching the Pond's Pure White facial foam ad commercial.The first look of the face wash stole my heart and without thinking much I purchased it.
This comes in a classy black tube packaging with a flip on cap.The face wash is pearly greyish in color and has thick creamy texture.You require a pea sized face wash to create rich lather.It also removes traces of make up effectively leaving my skin squeaky clean.It totally removes dirt, grime from my face.Though it contains glycerin it makes my skin very dry.I would love to use it during summers or after coming back home.This can remove my make up too entirely and I don't need a make up remover at all.I feel its a very strong foaming cleanser that removes dirt, grime, dust, including essential oils from our skin.This would be a favorite among all oily skin beauties as it keeps skin oil free for a long time.So overall its a good cleanser but yes it doesn't eliminate the causes of blemishes as claimed.

Pros of the Product:
-Contains activated charcoal that lifts away all black impurities.
-One of the best  foaming cleanser I have used, removes my makeup entirely without leaving any residues.
-Removes dirt, grime, dust effectively leaving my skin squeaky clean.
-Reasonable price for 100 gms of the product.
-Keeps skin oil free for long hours.
-It has a faint nice fragrance which I like.
-It looks greyish so I think it indeed contains activated charcoal.
-Very innovative concept of using charcoal powder in face wash.
-Very classy black tube packaging.

Cons of the Product:
-Dries my already dry skin.
-Removes moisture from my skin.
-Very strong cleanser, so may have bad effects on my skin in the long run.
-If it gets into my eyes, irritates a lot.
-Products start accumulating near flip cap with use.
-White looking skin concept doesn't go well with me.I don't want ghost like white skin for god sake.

Rating: 3.5 out of 5

Will I repurchase it? No, very drying for my skin.

My Overall Recommendation: Its a very good cleanser, it does everything that oily skin people want.Not for dry skin beauties.Though I would love to use it during summers.
