A while back I was sent a PR package by Pond’s SA featuring their Flawless Radiance BB Cream.  An ode to my love for convenience, ease, and instant coverage, here are my thoughts on their product.

Blemish Balm creams have been on the South African market for quite some time and if memory serves me right, Pond’s Flawless Radiance BB Cream entered the market around 2013. Truthfully, I have been an advocate of BB Cream for that long too, a tinted moisturizer that provides coverage – yes, please. And though, I have tried a few great BB Creams, Pond’s remains in my holy grail category.

There are a few reasons for that, Pond’s Flawless Radiance BB Cream is designed for African skin, aids in evening out your skin tone with it’s seven derma-strong actives and my favorite attribute – protects your skin with SPF30. With two shades in the range, Chocolate and Beige, Pond’s is catering to the broad spectrum of South African skin. It gives you an instant coverage look by smoothening out the appearance of your skin’s texture and tightening your pores.

It offers a semi-matte to dewy combination finish which makes for easy wear throughout your day. The formula is smooth, glides on easily and does not take much blending to work into your skin. A beauty blender or foundation brush does give you seamless application, but I have from time to time applied the product with my fingers. The longevity works well for daily wear, lasting almost nine hours on my combination type skin. I gravitate towards my BB cream over concealer/light coverage foundation when leaving the house because it can quickly cover up pigmentation and dark spots. It is also a benefit that a pea-sized amount of product can offer me such amazing coverage throughout my day.

Pond’s Flawless BB Cream currently retails for R99, 95 at most major retailers in South Africa and is available in a 25ml tube. In comparison to purchasing a foundation at the average price mark of R300.00 these days, this is a steal and can last for almost two months.

I’ve teamed up with Ponds South Africa and am giving away one Pond’s Flawless Radiance BB Cream hamper, consisting of four BB Creams (two of each shade) and a quirky makeup bag. What do you have to do win?
