With my freelancing life taking me out of the house and requiring makeup every day, I needed something effective yet gentle to wash the day away the day. While my favorite cleanser does the job, sometimes I need something quick and moisturizing at the same time. Luckily, there was a jar of Ponds Cold Cream Cleanser in my Q-Tips box of Halloween goodies I received last month. This cleanser has been around a very long time, the little black dress of the skincare world. And after using it for a few weeks, I clearly understand why!
It’s Part Cleanser
It has the right ingredients to get skin beautifully clean before bedtime. It’s even gentle enough to use as an eye makeup remover, eliminating the need to use a separate product. You don’t need to wet your face before you use it either. Just slather it on, enjoying the creamy texture while its breaks up all that dirt and makeup. It’s even tough enough for waterproof mascara. With a wet towel, you wipe all that gunk away (rinsing is totally optional). Just to make sure it got rid of everything, I followed up with toner and there wasn’t a trace of any dirt or makeup on that cotton ball.
It’s Part Moisturizer
While you’re cleansing, Pond’s classic formula infuses your skin with crazy moisture and keeping it there long after you rinse. The first time I used it, my skin felt so silky smooth I swore I hadn’t taken all of the cleanser off. After rinsing a few times, my skin was still soft to the touch. There was no reason to follow up with a moisturizer, which made my nighttime beauty routine even simpler. I seriously look forward to washing my face before bed.
