That jar was Pond's Cold Cream. I got my own jar recently and was surprised at how light it is now. The porcelain has been replaced by plastic.
Opening the jar revealed the familiar scent, although it's now a tad more fragrant.
Pond's Cold Cream has a thick and rich texture that's a lot less greasy than how I remember it from my childhood. I used to open my mom's jar and see tiny puddles of oil on the cream's surface. The present formulation is just creamy, not oily.
I dabbed some cream all over my eyelid that had eye shadow, eyeliner, and mascara. I massaged the area a bit, tissued off, then rinsed with water.
...and voila! Make-up free eyes in a jiffy. Pond's Cold Cream probably costs less than 10% of my Shu Uemura Cleansing Oil's Philippine price too -- which should be around P5,000 since I have the big pump. It's even easier to remove foundation, powder, blush, etc. from the rest of your face with this.
I'm feeling generous so I'm raffling off this Pond's White Beauty Lightening Facial Foam and Lightening Facial Cream.
