Are the oldies really the goodies? I knew that Pond's classic cult product Cold Cream Cleanser had been around for some time, but who knew it was filling the bathroom cabinets of women all over the UK when Queen Elizabeth II was arising to her throne back in 1952? If a product has been around for that length of time it's testament to the quality and benefit it can bring to the skin. If you're not familiar with the classic white stuff, then Pond's Cold Cream Cleanser is a rich facial cleanser that cleans deep down without drying your skin. You use it as you would a hot cloth cleanser, applying to the face in circular motions to remove makeup and dirt, using a flannel or muslin cloth to remove with water. The formula is simple, white, fragrance free and leaves your skin soft, smooth and radiantly clean. Its special blend of ingredients soften the skin as they deep cleanse so your complexion feels smooth - never tight or dry.
Although the cleanser does a good job of removing dirt and makeup without drying your skin or making it feel uncomfortable, it does struggle with mascara. Your skin is left feeling radiant, plump and moisturised after using, but a trace of product can still be felt on the skin. It's best to use a simple toner after to remove all traces from the surface of the face, as well as a strong dual-phase eye makeup remover to ensure you're spanking clean and dandy. There's a reason why this simple product has stood the test of time and over 60 years later is still picking up beauty awards and recommendations from industry experts - it does the job. What's even better is that it does the job for under a fiver, so you can rest easy that you're not breaking the bank. Rarely is there a product your mother, your grandmother and even your great grandmother would have used that you'd still be coveting, but Pond's seem to have the secret formula that only the likes of Coke can rely on.
