Happy Tuesday! A very exciting post today! I will be showing you inside of the Pond's Exclusive Kit I got when I attended the Pond's No Makeup Look Workshop which I will have a post up next on that and a little vlog too. It's so fun filming a little more and you can see what I am up to. Enough about that and I won't dwell on the event because I have a lengthy and picture heavy post coming up on Friday so this will just be about the products inside. I won't make this blog post really long either as I did an unboxing video and go into a lot of detail. So you can watch it below or just continue reading and see the pretty pictures of everything inside.
This is it. It is a white cardboard box that has the logo printed on it and it is metallic so it shows up in some light and sometimes doesn't so it was really hard getting a picture of it. When you open it up it has a large mirror inside perfect to do your makeup and dividers. It has a drawer as well and you can keep makeup in it or jewelery. In the video I keep awing about it and it is just so wonderful and a perfect vanity piece. I think it is so pretty and it is on my vanity at the moment and looks so good there. It is definitely my most prized possessions at the moment and I just can't help staring at it. I just hope to keep it as white as possible and not get it dirty. I don't think it is handy to travel with as it is really heavy and not practical but having it on your dressing table or on display is great for it. I even used it as a prop for a few blog pictures so there is another way it's useful.
Now enough about the box here is what is inside. As I said there are dividers to separate the products but also you can take it out if you want the whole square. First is a thank you card and it just thanked me for attending the event and it is signed. Then there is the instruction manual as I was referring to in the video. It has the five fashion bloggers who are brand ambassadors of the event and inside that is just step by step of how to use the Pond's skincare routine and on the back of that are the makeup goodies and how to apply the makeup.
The products on the top are the Pond's skincare routine. I've never tired a one brand skincare routine before so I was really excited to try it. I am currently testing it out since I got it so there will be a review post on that as soon as I review it all properly. This is for fresh pinkish glow as it says and I hear it will help brighten the face. The first product is the Pond's Pearl Cleansing Gel and it is the face wash. It has oxygenated beads to exfoliate for fresh skin and is gel based which I learned at the event was god for the skin. I've never tired gel products so this was interesting ad the texture is so funny and actually like a runny jello. After that is the matching moisturizer.
Then there is the Pond's Flawless White Dewy Rosy Gel and it is the matching one to the face wash. It comes in the prettiest packaging and I love the pink frosted glass bottle it comes in with the metallic pink lid. It is so pretty and looks amazing sitting by all my beauty products. It is also gel based and I am testing it out with the cleansing gel but as of now it is light and bouncy to the touch and not oily so so far so good. I also got a travel size to take with me so that's nice and you can see that little tub there too.
Lastly for the Pond's skincare is a BB Cream and it is the Pond's Flawless White BB Cream in Light. It is the base and it you have flawless skin they said then a small amount of BB cream is all you need to achieve a flawless base for the no makeup look. It has SPF 30 and dries to a powder finish. I've still yet to try this and see if it matches my skin tone but it says it usually does match everyone but they do have a beige option just in case.
The most exciting part is inside the drawer. So to achieve the no makeup makeup look you still need makeup. I know crazy right? Pond's decided to partner and collaborate with Happy Skin which I will explain more about in the event blog post but that is a little back story. Happy Skin gave some of their products that will be perfect for the look and here they are. The first thing is the Eye Am The One Holy Grail Mascara and it is supposedly a holy grail mascara. I really like the packaging and it does seem good. I've seen the brush and it looks fairly good for the lashes and I'm excited to try new mascara because it has been my thing recently too.
Next is for the brows and everyone loves the brow trend so this is the Eye Love View Eyebrow Duo in Chic Brown and it is a marker and pencil in one. I was really surprised as I didn't know how it worked or what it was for but I think that is why it makes it so special. I think this is one I will be so excited to try out.
The also put in a blush to get a pop of color on to those cheeks so you don't look dead with no color or life they included the Get Cheeky With Me Blush in The Morning After. It is a beautiful pink blush and I just love the shade. It is matte and it comes in the prettiest packaging but I mean all if it does but I just really like the cardboard magnetic box blushes and it makes it cuter I think. It also comes with one of their Blush Brushes and I did have a hard time saying that even while typing it out. Let me know if you do too. It is a nice brush and comes with a clear handle with their logo on it and the brush hair itself is white and so soft. I love when makeup brushes are soft.
The last makeup product and the most exciting is when Pond's and Happy Skin collaborated to make the perfect no makeup lippie which is supposed to be this nude pink shade that looks like yur lips but better shade. The creation lead them to make the Ponds x Happy Skin Shut Up and Kiss Me Lippie in No Makeup. It is this cute mini lippie that comes in the prettiest metallic silver packaging and is the perfect nude and pink lip shade that complements anyone and will go with any skin tone and makeup look. I'm so happy to get it as it is limited edition and the only way you can get it is if you purchase it with the Pond's skincare routine or 700php worth of Pond's products at SM Department Store or Watson's. I'm so happy I get to finally try one of their famous lippies and don't be surprised if this is the first thing I review because you know me and lipstick reviews especially if they are pink. It's definitely cool to have and so many makeup goodies to try and play with.
I will be reviewing a lot of these and especially all the Happy Skin goodies as it is my first time trying everything. I think I used the word excited too much in maybe this blog post and definitely it was the overused word of the video. But I truly am ecstatic to get into reviewing them and I did have these for a month now so I have already been testing them I just had to schedule in when to post this. So hope you like this and what product you want me to be reviewing first. Don't forget to watch the video and subscribe to my channel to know when the vlog will be up.
