Keeping it light.
It's always a good idea to switch things up when the heat is too much to handle. When looking for lighter and more comfortable formulations, one must not compromise potency and safety. Remember to never miss out on the essential ingredients that keep skin healthy and protected. These pre-summer offerings can jumpstart your new routine.
IN THE PINK
Pond's introduces its first ever cleanser in a gel format--Pond's Pearl Cleansing Gel. The gel provides superior whitening through pearl essence and vitamin B3, providing an additional whitening layer to skin. The oxygenated formula refreshes and locks in moisture and gives superior sensorials--a rejuvenating wash. Unlike regular cleansers, it keeps skin soft and supple since it won't strip skin of natural lipids. Resident Unilever beauty expert Agoo Bengzon says, "It's cool and not sudsy so your skin doesn't dry up after washing." Available in leading drugstores, department stores and supermarkets this March
As multi-faceted women, we can be very demanding when it comes to beauty. We want three key words: easy, effective, and fast!

This revolutionary skincare utilizes Opti-blur technology to blur imperfections such as pores, facial lines, and dullness. It's a weightless and cushiony cream that works in a matter of seconds. A pea-sized application is all you need--comfortable and non-greasy, the texture is a cross between a mattifying primer and a light lotion. The finish is smooth and almost powdery. "More than just temporarily erasing facial lines, Magic Blur also reduces the appearance of lines and enlarged pores over time with regular use," says L'OrAaAaAeA@al brand manager, Gela Encanto.
