I've been using the Pond's Gold Radiance Serum for about a month now. Almost every night before going to bed. I don't apply anything else on top of it (except for eye cream). It feels watery and cool like a gel, a little sticky when it's wet but it dries to a matte finish. I massage it all over my face using upward motions.
Oh-em-gee! It's amazing! Every time I use this at night, my face glows & feels firmer and plumper the next morning. This morning the area between my brows looked so smooth! Seeing that totally woke me up. I frown a lot (when I'm thinking, watching tv, on the computer & maybe when I sleep too) so my forehead has some fine lines. It smoothes those lines + minimizes my pores + makes my face look radiant, which is why I don't really mind that I haven't noticed any effect it's made on my dark spots yet.
- The pump. It's quite crap. I have to press it so hard to get product in there.
- I'm a little confused about the smell. Sometimes it smells perfume-like and sometimes I get a whiff of bamboo shoots from it. I don't mind it, coz I like bamboo shoots, but I still think it's weird in a face product. Maybe it's just my sense of smell that is weird, I'm not sure.
- Price (Rs.899). If it didn't make my face glow, I'd say 'all that glitters ain't gold'
I think this is one of the most effective anti-aging products I've ever used. I like it better than the Olay Total Effects Anti-ageing Serum (click for review)
I accidentally came across the Guerlain L'or Radiance Concentrate With Pure Gold, a makeup base, and thought it looks very similar to Pond's Gold Radiance Serum.
The way it's described in some reviews, it sounds like they both have the same type of texture and feel. Of course, that's just my thought and I might be wrong.
Do you want to try Pond's Gold Radiance Serum? And if you have any tips on how to stop oneself from frowning all the time, please do tell! :)
