Pond's Cold Cream for removing eye make-up...

I remember the heavy white porcelain jar on my mother's dresser when I was a little girl. She'd open it and apply the thick white cream on her face to remove the day's make-up, dirt, and grime. I can still remember how it smelled like.

Pond's Perfect Care Cold CreamThat 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 The porcelain has been replaced by plastic.

A dab of Pond's Cold CreamPond'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.

Eye make-up remover?
Fellow bloggers told me that Pond's is really good for removing eye make-up. I normally use Shu Uemura Cleansing Oil and my fingers to do so, but I thought I'd try Pond's Cold Cream for a change.

Removing eye make-up with Pond's Cold CreamI 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.

Make-up free eyes by Pond's Cold Cream...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.
