POND’s Luminous Finish BB + Cream review

In a few weeks, I will be 50 years old. This upcoming birthday started to get me thinking that I need to make changes because I officially going to be middle-aged. I have started eating healthier and exercising. I have also started using more lotions and potions on my skin to help it transition into my 50's.

I am always looking for new products that will help me keep my skin looking younger than it really is. I am already seeing a few wrinkles and some skin discoloration. I am not liking that!

I recently had the opportunity it try POND’s Luminous Finish BB+ Cream. Now, I have to admit that I rarely is ever use any foundation on my face. I usually go au natural. I have to give credit to my mom and dad because I have pretty good skin even for a 50 year old! But there are times when I need a little help. Usually when I am attending a special event or occasion, I use a light foundation to make myself look better.

POND’s Luminous Finish BB+ Cream did just that. I put some on and it covered all my small imperfections. It looked natural as well. It did not look like I was wearing foundation. It went on easily and smoothly. But I have to admit that it felt a little heavy on my skin. But that could be because I never wear any type of foundation.

I liked the fact that it also was not shiny when I was wearing it. I did not have to even put on face powder over it. It is not greasy. I also like that it has SPF protection. I will not wear any face cream without SPF nowadays. As you can see from the pictures below, it did make my face llok smoother and blended my skin tone.

While, I liked the product, I am not sure I would use it all the time. I would prefer something a little lighter on my skin. But if you actually wear a heavy foundation, you might want to try POND's Luminous. It is one of the lightest foundations

  1. I don't even speak foundation. When I sing in a concert I'll use eyeshadow & blusher & lipstick.

  3. Years ago, my grandmother had a close friend that would only use Ponds products and she always used their moisturizer. That lady had the best skin ever. She was in ther 70's and looked fabulous. I haven't tryied this yet but may look into it.
