I participate in the Influenster program that receives sample boxes of products for word of mouth marketing campaigns. I was chosen to receive the #mamavoxbox this month and it included Pond’s Luminous Finish BB+ Cream. Since I received the sample I thought I would write a review.
About Pond’s Luminous Finish BB+ Cream
The Pond’s Luminous Finish BB+Cream is made with Tone Perfecting Complex that gives you luminous coverage instantly and visible dark spot reduction. It works by targeting the source of dark spots on skin’s surface – visibly fading them for a difference you can see. It also delivers a special pigment system designed to blend flawlessly into a variety of skin tones and immediately conceal imperfections with natural-looking coverage. The BB Cream is only available in light and medium.

Pond’s Luminous Finish BB+Cream is another BB cream (beauty balm) in my opinion. I use BB creams when I want a natural look on a daily basis. I usually use a BB cream when I am in a hurry to put on my makeup in 20 min or less. I like that the Pond’s Luminous Finish BB+Cream is SPF 15 to help protect against everyday sun damage. I was discouraged that a dark color is not available and still don’t understand why. Because of this I was a bit hesitant to try even the medium color. But when I did I was pleasantly surprised. The medium tint was ok for my skin tone. I was able to easily blend the Pond’s Luminous Finish BB+Cream, but only use a thin layer. If I applied too much, the medium tint was too light for me. I even tried the light color and came to the conclusion that I can use the light tint for slight highlighting. You have seen videos and pictures of me and my skin tone, I am not dark at all so if you are dark this would not be the BB cream for you. But if you are medium or olive to light skin tones, you can try the medium and light tints.
The Pond’s Luminous Finish BB+Cream is very smooth and a little went a long way. When I say smooth, I mean not only did the product feel smooth on my fingers. After I applied it to my face,, my face was felt smooth also. Oh, and don’t let me forget about the scent. It is so fresh and clean. I really loved the scent.
I would recommend the Pond’s Luminous Finish BB+Cream to anyone who is of light or medium complexion looking for a light foundation. I did not feel that the Pond’s Luminous Finish BB+Cream gave me a full coverage foundation, which I usually wear when I am not in a hurry.
