Its been little long this time for me - being out of action. I would say 'my work' which made me keep juggling, struggling and its not easy for me to write a post when I am not in 'mood' no matter how many pending posts I may have...
So today I am back with a Men's Grooming product- from the house of Ponds.
it is Ponds MEN Oil Control Fairness Moisturiser.
Ponds was considered as a 'female' brand since its inception but today's cosmopolitan Men compelled them to take a Man's drape too.
My man has oily skin and being always outdoors, he is always in need of something to keep his skin oil free and fresh for long. If you might be following the blog, you must have got an idea how I keep experimenting with his bath & body and grooming products. We thoroughly loved Ponds Pollution Out Cleanser (yes, WE, i even use this cleanser often and it really works on my skin) Its one of the staples in our night care regime (should I say mine, as MEN do not have any skin care regime :-)).
So what is Ponds MEN Oil Control Fairness Moisturiser all about?
Price- 40 gms for 135 INR. Available on all online sites and retail counters.
Brighten your skin while reducing the shine. The Pond’s Men Oil Control Face Moisturizer provides up to 12 hours of oil control while reducing your dark spots, resulting in a healthy, natural glow all day.

What my MAN says-
He is one of those who needs time to give his verdict and does not believe in first impressions. So after finishing more than half of the content, he said- its nice yaar! my face is oil free and fresh for hours.
Ponds MEN Oil Control Fairness Moisturiser is a thick white cream with the same Men's cologne fragrance. The tube is all black with green accents. The flip cap squeezy tube comes packed in a carton and with a Masculine appeal.
The cream spreads well and sinks in no time giving a matte finish to your face. You would also feel instant freshness as soon as you would apply the cream. Although its an oil control formula but equally hydrates skin and since my Man does not have any concerns like acne/pimple so cant claim about acne or pimple control.
You may find your face glowing sans that shine. yes, it works on dark spots and areas with pigmentation too, you will find that they are fading with every use.
Looking into the content list, you can say it has some reliable contents to work but then parabens would disappoint you.
The Ponds MEN Oil Control Fairness Moisturiser really goes long as one hardly needs less than a coin size for face and neck. I would not call this fairness but an effective oil control and anti pigmentation formulation.
Overall Ponds MEN Oil Control Fairness Moisturiser is a great hydrating and oil control formula for men and is a must for these summers. Ponds has again scored on my charts. Highly recommended!
My Rating - 4.9/5
