Pond’s Flawless White Dewy Rose Gel Review – UPDATED MARCH 2015

Update March 2015:
I’ve been using this on a daily basis ever since I received their Pond’s Pearl Cleansing Gel and I use them in tandem and it indeed gives a rosy white dewy radiance to my skin! I love it! Parang this will be part of my favorite whitening gels/creams for the face. Pero magiging honest ako, I will stop using this for 2 weeks to use a different product for intensive whitening. Just to review a different product, pero I think I’ll keep coming back to this when I finish trying other products
I’m glad they released a non-sticky gel version of Pond’s Flawless White in Dewy Rose Gel. No kidding. I’ve been an unofficial Pond’s girl ever since I entered my 3rd year of highschool, influenced by our male economics teacher who swears that Pond’s lightened his skin! He even gave us a demo on how to use it. (It was the cream-to-powder finish pa) we were amazed with his before and after pics too that all of us gave in and bought a tube! (See my: Review of Pond’s Flawless White Cream). I was so happy when I got a small size of this in my Glamour Box and finally got to try for myself! I’ve been using this for 2 weeks on a daily basis. Read on for the price, ingredients, and my detailed review.
What? Pond’s Flawless White Dewy Rose Gel Review
How much? 149php
Where to buy? Leading drugstores, supermarkets, department stores everywhere!

Ingredients (I bolded the active ingredients)

Glycerin (moisture retainer)
Dimethicone (Silicone for slip)
Alcohol Denat
Butelyn Gycol
Niacinamide (Vitamin B3)
Tocopheryl Acetate (Vitamin E)
Titanium Dioxide (Sunscreen)
Allantoin (Whitening, Healing)
Mica (matte glowy finish)
Rhododendron Extract (rose extract, it’s at the bottom of the list so.. meh)

What they promise
Reduce dullness, lighten skin, lighten dark spots, lit from within, soft skin

What I Like

  • It’s light on the skin! You won’t feel like there’s heavy cream on so it’s perfect for our humid weather
  • It really leaves a rosy dewy lit from within glow on your skin once applied. It leaves a radiant dewy pink finish.
  • If you’re hiyang, Pond’s products really work. It will not make you as fair as snow white BUT it will give you that pushyaw maaliwalas hindi dugyot look. LOL
  • A little goes a long way, as seen on my hand photo above I only used a pea size to spread out and it’s a lot already
  • Did you know that it’s active ingredient niacinamide also works in reducing and preventing acne? That’s why they’re so proud when they promise it will reduce acne spots too!
  • It’s cheap at 149php! Affordable for teens and students alike.

What could be improved

  • Meh.. the tub is really unsanitary. Constantly dipping our fingers in the pot would contaminate it to bacteria. It would be great if they also sell this in their regular squeeze-tube packaging

Will I buy again?

Guess what? Yes. I will. This is one of the best whitening creams err gel that I have used in a while. I love the fact that it doesn’t feel heavy and I can use it day and night. Tip: I put a heavier layer at night like a “mask”

Personal Side Notes: Hey everyone! I’m so glad I managed to write today. I have 3 post backlogs that I have to finish this week boohoo. Yep, I call these backlogs if they are from someone else like an event I went to, a shopping experience, and something that I really didn’t buy from my own pocket. I admit it’s one of the perks of being a “top” blogger but it’s a double edged sword since we are really required sometimes to finish writing on a specific timeline! That’s why I decided to really choose what to review. It must be a product I really like and an event I really enjoyed, or else it’s really not worth writing for don’t you agree?(REALLY! haha) Oh my I’m blabbing a lot na. I’ve been sick pa yesterday so all I did was take a rest. Later pala is my son’s school play. His first! He’ll be playing a mouse in Pied Piper of Hamlin. I’m such a proud mama,  I’ll be posting pictures of him here too! 🙂
I hope you’re all doing well. I do respond to all disqus comments and questions as soon as I get to sit down on my working computer. As of this moment I’m writing this on my tita’s office. I’m headed out to the gym and a spa treatment somewhere that I’ll be excited to share to you soon too! Hay! I’ve got so many kwento pa but I have to say goodbye for now.
Love lots, your kikay guru, Kat

    I'm happy that they priced this super cheap, gel moisturizers from both Neutrogena and Olay are at least Php 800.

    I used to be a loyal Pond's girl until I felt like my pores were clogging because of the cream. I had lots of blackheads and I'm not sure if I was right in blaming it to the Pond's cream. But because of this review, I'm giving it another chance. Afterall, it's only P149 and you've mentioned that it's very lightweight. I hope it won't fail me this time.

    By the way, I envy your strength in your gym photos ha. I saw your posts. Where do you get your energy from? Lol! (inggit lang ako) haha! Have a great day!

    I'm a user of luxxe white for a month and I liked the results of it.
    It's even awarded as one of the best glutathione in the market as I've researched.

    good eve po ms. kat, could you please make a review on luxxe white glutathione pls…

  • Reply Elainne Catalan October 30, 2014 at 10:48 am

    Hi Ms. Kat. I've tried Vitapack Beauty and Megawhite for 10 days each. My skin lightened in Megawhite but I had big appetite as well (I eat every food I see haha). Beauty's slimming capsule was effective however, taking only 250mg of gluta capsule did not make any changes in my skin.

    I'm planning to take PH338 hoping it won't give me nasty pimples. 😀

  • Reply Franchesca Yambao October 30, 2014 at 12:00 pm

    pero may permanent hair removal ba?

    Hi, I'm a newbie in taking glutha, I bought Aescultura caps, no effect, then Illuminax, no effect. Now someone is offering me Relumins, do you have any idea if this one at least works? Sigh, I can't make up my mind, hirap magpaganda 🙁

    Hello 🙂 I've been checking out your blog since I became interested in taking glutathione. I'm just confused of which to take between Snow Caps, Vitapack Megawhite and Vitapack 3-in-1. And I have a 15-year-old cousin who also wants to take glutathione pills which is safe for her. I want both of us to take the same. So what do you suggest? Thanks xx

    Hi Ms Kat, namanipulate and SERP gawa ng sobrang dami ng comments sa comment section mo about Luxxe White and Front Row, so when someone made a google search about luxxe white review, itong post mo ang lalabas. And google ranks your website very high, kaya lalabas at lalabas ito sa first page. Pero ok din na you edited your post and explicitly mentioned that you are not associated with them, kasi you don't control what other people might think, and some people may have an impression din na you are promoting or even associated this brand of gluta. Just my two cents.

    Now using Ishigaki, yung 60caps. Excited to see some changes. 🙂

    Super, i love your blog, it's super useful. I'll be trying snow capsule thanks to you. My skin burned out when i went to three different super hot places three years ago and my skin hasn't returned until now. I've tried whitening soaps but not so effective, when i read about gluta and especially now about your blog i wanna try it

    Hi Kaycee! Ako talagang hindi yata hiyang sa ponds, my uncle influence me during my high school days specially yung time ng adolescence. Matagal ako gumamit ng toner nila the pink one pero it seems like ponds products didn't work for me. May ilan lang na "okay" pero it sounds promising since ikaw ang nagreview. hehe try ko din to, may dry patches kasi ako tapos oily ang face ko, anyway I always check your blog dahil sa whitening reviews mo, kapag sinasabi mong effective yung soap tinatry ko din at naaamaze naman ako sa result. Pag malapit na wedding ko maggugluta ako na recommended mo 🙂

  • Reply kikaysikat March 10, 2015 at 12:25 am

    Hi Jen
    Medyo strong ang fragrance nito ha, try mo muna the small size kung mahiyang ka since you mentioned hindi ka talaga hiyang sa pond's 🙂

  • Reply Maui March 24, 2015 at 6:58 am

    Hi. I tried Glupa soap and I think its too harsh for my skin. My skin became super dry and itchy. I switched back to my trusty Physiogel but I don't know what moisturizer to use. Any suggestions? 🙂 Thank you.

    I agree! Unang gamit ko palang ngandahan na ako. I apply this on my face and neck every morning and before bedtime. Pag gising ko ang soft ng face ko at maputi. Girls try nyo. May pimples ako pero nabawasan dahil dito. Eto din ginagamit ng husband ko haha and I can see na maganda ang effect sakanya

    Yup! The sticky version is this gel-form. Do you still find it sticky? If yes you can try their variant that goes from creme-powder

    You're welcome! I'm glad you enjoy my blog 🙂
