If there is one thing about my skin that makes me crazy, it’s those icky blackheads and oil formed during the day. I cleanse, exfoliate, tone and apply moisturizer regularly to keep my face plagued with these clogged pores that seem almost impossible to banish for good.
I have been using Pond’s products since like secondary school. It’s my family’s trusted brand as Pond’s facial skin care products deliver truly promising results.
Just last week, I saw an ad in Facebook and became intrigued on Bioré’s latest product, the Marshmallow Whip Facial Wash. I think it’s not yet available in the Philippines. The facial foam mixture looks so soft and cute that I bought it today instantly at Watsons.
In this post, I present the comparison between Bioré’s facial wash versus Pond’s clear solutions anti-bacterial facial scrub.
Bioré costs S$13.9 for 150mL, while Pond’s is like S$17.4 for 100mL. There isn’t much difference so cost is not a strong factor for comparison.
Bioré is odorless (or it’s just me who didn’t smell it). Pond’s has a clean soapy smell.
Bioré lives up to its marshmallow name. It’s bouncy, fluffy and dense, which can probably suit babies’ skin. In contrast, Pond’s anti-bacterial facial scrub has soft beads that make you feel that all the dirt, oil, makeup and dead, dull skin cells are being removed as you gently massage your face in washing.
Same set of steps apply for the products. First is wet your face. Second is apply an ample amount of the facial wash onto your face, massage in circular motion and then rinse.
My face feels clean and smooth after using both products, but I think Pond’s gives me a squeakier clean, the kind of feeling as though moisture has been stripped from my skin. So I guess using Bioré is just right (no need moisturizer afterwards). I also love that it has a pump stopper thing (I have no idea what that’s called) at the neck of the bottle.
This part of functional design is very useful for when traveling, the pump stopper helps to ensure that the contents of the bottle won’t spill out in your luggage unlike most dispensers.
Both ok lah, bo pien.
