If you have read this post, you will know that last month I was in Mumbai to attend the Pond’s Institute event that witnessed the launch of two new products from the brand. One was the My Skin Advisor web application and the other one was the new Pond’s Pimple Clear Face Wash. Formulated with pimple-fighting Active Thymo-T Formula, this face wash is clinically proven to help clear pimples in just three days to give beautifully smooth, clearer skin on the outside. I’ve been testing this face wash to see if it really lives up to its claim and here are my thoughts on the product. Read on!

Before starting off with the review, I want to let you know that touch wood, I don’t really have oily and acne prone skin. It is not that my skin is flawless and I don’t have any breakouts. I do but I don’t have to deal with them regularly. After getting the product, I was actually looking for someone with acne-prone skin to try it out and share an honest opinion. Ultimately, I did not have to outsource the review because a few pimples popped up on my chin and forehead and that gave me an opportunity to test the product myself.
Pond’s Pimple Clear Face Wash comes in the regular tube packaging. It has a strange spicy/herbal scent and the texture is slightly thick. That means you only need a tiny bit and it lathers nicely. The face wash gets rid of all dirt, oil and impurities and leaves the skin feeling squeaky clean. Unfortunately, it also leaves the skin very dry and stretchy. If you have dry skin, it can get quite uncomfortable.
Coming to whether it really gets rid of pimples in three days and gives clear skin, it does not. But what it does in three days is reduce the size considerably and that is no mean feat. To double-check the effectiveness of the face wash, I did not use any other anti-acne product on my face for those three days. I only used the face wash in the morning and at night and followed up with my regular moisturiser. By the end of the third day, the pimples reduced in size and they were gone after nearly six days of using the product. I did not see any effect on the earlier pimple marks though.
If you have oily or acne-prone skin, you can surely give the new Pond’s Pimple Clear Face Wash a try. Just keep the moisturizer handy after washing it off!
