A Healthy Dose of Pond’s

I have extremely dry skin, so over the years I have tested countless lotions and creams and spent x amount of dollars in an attempt to find that perfect product. But all the creams were too thin; I would slather on a night cream and wake up with parched skin.

I purchased Pond’s Cold Cream a few days ago after reading rave review after rave review. It’s not often that I can recommend beauty products, as I am rarely 100% satisfied with what I purchase. However, I am absolutely confident when I say this is the best facial cream I have used! It’s thick and moisturizing to no end. I apply a fair amount to a freshly washed face and spend the rest of the day with glowing skin. I guess this is what you would call a budget miracle cream, and it’s available at your nearest drugstore for around $8.

  1. Ah, ok. I was wondering if Pond’s Cold Cream can be used as a moisturizer, and not just a make up remover. I’ve been using their Dry Skin Cream, which works quite well, but their cold cream is supposed to be their miracle product. Definitely will give it a try!

  2. i have normal to dry skin and use kiss my face moisturizer with olive oil. huge container for super cheap! re: the pond’s what does it smell like? i’d try it if it’s fragrance free 🙂

  3. I’m so psyched that you posted this because I am just recently having the hardest time ever with dry skin on my nose and cheeks and it’s been really bothering me. It’s like I have a bad sun burn that never stops peeling. So gross. I must try this!

  4. Thank you for your comments! You are too sweet! So I am a beauty product horse! I want to try this cream, I have super dry skin too! Do you use it around you eye area also or do you have a magic cream that you like for that too??

    • Hi Angela! Thanks for stopping by. 🙂 My sister-in-law gifted me with Kiehl’s Creamy Eye Treatment with Avocado, so I use that around my eyes in conjunction with the Pond’s. Honestly, I don’t see a huge difference with the Kiehl’s – but the area under my eyes isn’t a problem area for me. When this runs out I would not be opposed to using Pond’s in that region, since it’s so moisturizing. Let me know if you purchase it! It’s worth a shot, especially since you say have you dry skin. It’s very, very hydrating.

  5. I was about to post the same comment as actorsdiet! Being a Mad Men fan I couldn’t help but notice the coincidence.
    I don’t think Pond’s available in France. I’ll have to check.

  6. Hello, stopping by your page from The Budget Babe’s. I tried Ponds face wash and cream once this past winter. I really liked the face wash, but the lotion broke me out really bad. I wanted it to work so badly because it is affordable and feels good on the skin, but mine must have been too sensitive for it. I use Dove pro age face wash now and it’s wonderful.

    Have a good day!

    • Dina – thank you so much for stopping by! Fortunately, I do not have sensitive skin – so Pond’s Cold Cream works like a charm. I’m glad you’ve found your perfect product!

  7. I have the same problem. Super dry skin. I try not to try too many different products because my skin tends to get irritated really easily. I might have to give this a try.
    I’ve been using Avon extra hydration moisturizer and I’m really fond of this but it runs about 12 dollars + shipping off amazon. But the great thing about it is that it lasts forever!

    • If you’re happy with the Avon, then give that a go… but if you’re still looking for something, give Pond’s a shot. Fortunately, however, I do not have sensitive skin… so I could put this on five times a day and I wouldn’t break out or see irritation. Let me know if you spring for the Pond’s. 😉 Thanks for stopping by!

  8. Have never seen this cream. I have the opposite problem, my skin becomes so oily incredibly easily.

    Love the concept of your blog, living frugally is definitely something we should all aim to do more often.

    • I have never seen an episode! Actually, season 1 has been in my queue for almost a month and Netflix still says there’s a Long Wait. I’m curious about this episode, though…
