POND’S New Luminous Line and #LuminousEffect Photo Sweepstakes

As I approach my thirties, diligent and thorough skincare continues to become more and more of a priority for me. All the makeup in the world can only help your appearance so much if the canvas below is not properly taken care of.

When it comes to skincare, I’m a strong believer in splurging when necessary, but I’m also a strong believer that some brands offer great products with very budget-friendly pricetags. One of my favorite beauty brands to fall under the latter category is Pond’s.

Released January 2013, the new Luminous Line from Pond’s includes four products: a daily cream cleanser, daily exfoliating cleanser, moisturizing sunscreen and wet cleansing towelettes. Each product costs less than $6, and can be found at mass retailers, select drugstores and supermarkets nationwide. It’s also important to note that each product in the line is hypoallergenic, non-comedogenic and dermatologist tested.

Let’s see how the Luminous Line stacks up!

POND’S Luminous Clean Cream Cleanser
  • Super gentle
  • Rinses easily
  • Pleasant scent
POND’S Luminous Clean Daily Exfoliating Cleanser
  • Definitely gentle enough to use daily
  • Leaves skin feeling super soft and refreshed
  • A little bit goes a long way
POND’S Luminous Clean Wet Cleansing Towelettes
  • Love these! Super portable, super effective
  • GREAT at removing waterproof makeup, like mascara or eyeliner
  • Textured towelettes gently exfoliate while drawing out makeup and impurities
POND’s Luminous Moisture Day Lotion with SPF 15
  • Not at all greasy!
  • UVA/UVB protection
  • Sun protection and luminous moisture in one product

    My Favorite skincare ritual is using a toner, if I don’t use a toner My Face just doesn’t feel the same after I moisturize.

    When comes to a skincare I don’t think I can go a day without using eye cream or SPF. I don’t want to get sun damaged and I don’t like having dry, puffy aging eyes!

    My favorite is not having to take care of it at all. I really don’t like having to take care of my skin.
