Review: Pond’s White Beauty Pearl Cleansing Gel + OOTD

What? Pond’s White Beauty Pearl Cleansing Gel (Facial Wash)
How much does it cost? 155php/100g 
Where to buy? Zalora, Watson’s, Mercury Drug, SM Beauty and other leading department stores (It’s FREE on for a limited time)

Before anything else, I can’t stress enough how much I’m in love with Pond’s Dewy Rose Gel as my night-time moisturizer for my face. It feels very much like those Korean night sleeping packs except this one is much cheaper and gives a rosy and dewy glow the longer you use it. You can see it’s effect in as little as 2 weeks. Enough about the gel and let’s talk about it’s partner. The Pond’s White Beauty Pearl Cleansing Gel.
Finally! They came up with the perfect partner to pair with our favorite dewy rose gel.

Random Chat: I told myself I won’t be writing any blogs today, but both my mind and hands were itching to write. As if it’s needed to be done. I was actually planning to relax by watching game walkthroughs of The Last of Us on YouTube. Do you guys know that game? How are you by the way?


Water, Sodium Laureth Sulfat, Glycerin (keeps moisture!), Acrylates, Copolymer, Cocamidopropyl Betain, Cocamide MEA, Perfume, Sodium Chloride (cleanser! oxygenated!), Sodium Hydroxide (cleansing oxygen!), Tetrasodium EDTA, Niacinamide (Vitamin B3 for whitening), PPG-9, Hydrolized Pearl (whitening agent), Xanthan Gum, Lactic Acid, Potassium Sorbate.


  • fresher rosy white glow
  • great for sensitive skin
  • deeply cleanses without drying skin
See the bubbles? Those are the oxygen. It smells really good too! Like fresh roses. I love love love the smell on my skin. However, it is not as foamy as other facial wash. It doesn’t make plenty of lather but that’s good. The lather was made up by scientists to make us feel that the soap is cleaning our skin. But actually, we don’t need the suds to cleanse the face. I guess that’s why Pond’s Pearl Cleansing Gel is perfect for sensitive skin. My full review and thoughts at the end of the post.

I was invited by Sample Room and Zalora on both launches of the product. Both require me to wear white. I prefer my OOTD on the Sample Room event where I had loads of fun with other beauty bloggers.

Instead of listening, I was too busy taking photos. LOL
Thanks Earth for the photo! I like showing off my tattoo all the time HAHAHAHAHA

With Rochelle, Earth, Kath-neko, Donnarence, and Jessa! They’re not on the photo but Donnarence, Earth, Gemma, Tellie and I grabbed a couple of beers at Bugsy’s after the event. It was super fun and I hope we get to do that again (attention RHEA BUE! Join us next time!)


What I love about Pond’s products is that they’re backed with science. They’re not just some company who makes false claims about so and so without any proof. During the event they made a demo on how Pond’s Pearl Cleansing Gel is really gentle to our skin by dipping a special kind of paper. One on ordinary soap, and one with Pond’s the one with Pond’s didn’t get damaged. See photo below.
  • It cleanses really well. I know so because I tried to swipe some toner after washing my face and it ran through clean.
  • It doesn’t dry my skin. My face feels so soft and bouncy after washing. 
  • It smells so good!
  • It’s effective in helping achieve that rosy white glowy complexion. I was frustrated days before because I noticed how dry my skin has become. I’m super thankful that I got to try Pond’s Pearl Cleansing gel!
  • Perfect for sensitive skin. It cleanses ever so gently so you don’t need to worry. This is the perfect whitening facial wash for girls with sensitive skin.

NO FREAKING FILTER. I’m having red-eye during the time of this photo or was I teary eyed? Can you see how radiant and glowy my skin is. My usual problem now is that my skin gets dry all the time from using whitening soap bars. I’m addicted to using Pond’s Pearl Cleansing Gel because it cleans so well but it doesn’t leave my skin taut. Trust me, if ever I run out, I’ll buy a new tube all the time. (I was a fan of their charcoal whitening range before)

    TIA! 😉

  • kikaysikat

    naku! 🙂 with measurements I do the estimates I did written on my post. Tantsa tantsa lang. For 125ml I suggest using 1 small can of milk

    I love to try free diet meals pero when they are not free, ang hirap na! fat is just too mean, you have to lose money just to lose fat.

  • siennagold

    Thanks a lot for the reviews! Nice to have a lot of choices. I really need to lose some weight, so this is the most healthy way along with exercise. I did try Fitness Gourmet and Gourmet Guys (expensive but got a discounted voucher) and both were delicious – preferred Fitness Gourmet though because the portions were more filling than Gourmet Guys. I will try the others as well.

    Please review Weigh To Go Ph. I think this meal delivery service is owned or co-owned by Chef Rosebud Benitez whom I watched on TV in some cooking show a few years back.

  • yvonnembertoldo .

    I've tasted some of Yummy Diet's dishes on last year's Best Food Forward event. True, you wouldn't feel like you are on a diet because the food is just too delicious 🙂

  • Too Hot

    Ms K. bakit po yung akin Red po yung color font po nung Nakasulat. It's still original? saka po di ko po nalalasahan yung sour taste when I'm taking the capsule. worried lang po. Thank you po. 🙂

  • patyco

    Hi Miss K, i've been using the ishigaki premium for a week now then i developed 2 cystic acne on my chin (lumiit na din nmn) and i got rashes on my face as well (parang mga pantal na maliliit pero nawawala din nmn). Are these signs for me to stop using it or nasa phase ako ng "purging"? =)

  • Kim Alcoreza

    Hi, Kat! Thank you for the review. This was really helpful. One question though: Did you have to take Vitamin C supplements with these pills? Some gluta pills already contain Vit. C, but I read Ishi Premium's specs, and it's not one of those. Hope Yoi can shed some light on this. Thank you!

  • Yen

    Hi Miss Kat. How are you? I hope you're doing well. Matagal ko nang nirereview mga post mo and I really admire kasi you share them. Nag-try ako ng SnowCaps because of you and I really like the outcome kasi naging makinis muka ko and mas naging maputi pa talaga ako. Pero I wanted to try yung iba naman kasi alam ko mild lang ang SnowCaps. I wanted a rosy white and yung makinis talaga skin. Just want to ask something kasi it really confused me. Which you think is more better? Authentic Relumins Advanced White Oral Whitening Formula Capsule (Maximum Strength? or Ishigaki Premium? Or Ishigaki L-Gluta? Please please please. I need your answer! Sayo po kasi ako nagdedepend. Thank you so much! Sana mapansin mo 'to. Thank you Miss Kat.

  • kikaysikat

    Sa relumins, I got the "putla white"
    for Ishi Advanced I got "yellow white" for Ishi premium "normal white"

    How much is your budget? If it's tight, I reco, ishi premium, pero if you have budget MET is actually good!

  • joe

    hello po, 1 month na po akong gumagamit ng ishigaki premium at yung sabon ko po ay meztisa.. nagkakapimples po aq which is new to me. saan po kaya ang my problema, dun sa sabon o sa ishigaki? please patulong po ms. kikay

  • Cris

    Hi Miss Kat. I trust you pag dating sa pag take ng gluta capsules. I am planning to buy ishi premium after holy week. First time ko pong mag t-take ng gluta and based sa lahat ng review mo about gluta caps e ishi yung maganda ang kaya ng budget. Maputi na ko pero gusto ko talaga pumantay kulay ko and pumuti ung extremities ko. Tanong ko lang po sa first bottle po kaya may difference na kong makikita? Legit din po kaya ung sa cheskasstore? Nabobother lang ako ang mura kasi niya. Ayun thank you Ate Kat I hope you'll notice my post. Have a good day!

  • AJ

    Hi Miss Kat! I was searching for Gluta brands and I came across your blog. I really enjoy reading it kasi very informative! Anyway, I have some personal questions lang. I'm 19 years old and I haven't tried any Gluta products yet. My current complexion is medium brown and I really want to have white skin. I see you had great results in Ishigaki and Relumins. Which one can you recommend for me? 🙂 Hoping for your response po. Thank you so much and more power! 🙂

  • liz

  • charity

    Hi ms. kat, tanong ko lang sana if mag stop using gluta med – babalik po ba ang orginal complexion ko? or , need ito e maintain? or ilang months ito e take? please. thanks.

  • jhessieh

    Hi Ms. Kat ask ko lang ano pang marecomend mo na gluta i already tried ishi and vita pack. Kaso wala pa rin effect eh. Thanks in advance.

  • kikaysikat

    hi dear, how long mo ba sya ininom? ako kasi nung unang beses ko mag gluta, it took months bago ako makakita ng significant changes with my skin color

  • jhessieh

    Sa vitapack sis mga 1 week lang kaso nagkaron ako ng mga pimples sa noo tapos sa may pisngi malalaki. Ung sa ishi kasi naging iba ung color ng base ng leeg ko parang naging yellow green.

  • jhessieh

    Sa vitapack kasi 1 week lang kaso nagkaron ako ng mga pimples sa noo na maliliit tus sa pisngi parang acne na talaga. Tapos sa ishi nmn ung base part ng leeg ko parang naging yello green.

  • cesssa

    Hii. Im just 16 years old. Just asking if i can now take this ISHI-PREMIUM? Because my mom and i were finding the right whitening capsules so that my schoolmate will not gonna make "asar" me just because of my skin. I get very depress sometimes you know because of their treatment against me. So, please reply to me Ms. Kat.

  • Arianne Mae

    hi po miss kat. just wanna ask if authentic po ang sa cheskasstore? tsaka what is more effective po ishi premium or snow caps? im currently using snow caps mag to-two weeks palang. thanks

  • Arianne Mae

    thank u for always replying on my queries miss kat!. im relying on ur blog reviews on what products to use. u r such a blessing!

  • tulip

    ask ko lang po. ng order then po kasi ako sa agelessbeauty ng ishigaki premium. but ang nakalagay sa ingredients ay glacine? Di po ba glycine yun?

  • kevinchristian elducal

    Is this okay for 13 years old?
    I'm 13 turning to 14 on June 1. Btw Which is Better Snow Caps or this one?

  • gem

    Hello miss kat. my mai recommend po ba kayo n ibang non acidic vit.C n pwede i partner po s ishigaki.? thank you po

  • mykpando .

    tried Ishigaki Premium,, on my 4th bottle.. di sya ganun ka-effective sa akin,, very minimal glow or natural glow lang ng balat ko yung nakikita ko. di pansinin yung effect nya gaya nung ibang nagamit ko.. sayang ang pera ko…

  • mykpando .

    pag na-achieve nyo na po yung lightening effect nya,, kailangan i-continue. kailangan maging part na sya ng daily routine mo,, if you wanna see the continuous progress sa whitening..

  • Cris

    Mas prefer mo na snow caps? I bought 2 bottles of ishi prem pa naman Ms Kat. Feel ko tuloy sayang pera ko 🙁 pero effective din ba ishi prem? Naguguluhan tuloy ako

  • Gel Luzod

    Hi, you are my no. 1 blogger when it comes to glutathione reviews. I also venture the glutathione market but check first reviews such as yours before trying it. My 1st time use of ishigaki was a success but my 2nd bottle wasnt something that I expected.I turned dark so I immediately stop. Hay same seller naman ako pinagbilihan. I hope you can suggest a good one. Thanks

  • Gel Luzod

    Strange Sa agelessbeautypotions ako bumili ng ishigaki but my 2nd and 3rd order of ishigaki , made my skin dark. My friend tried it too, same bottle that I used,she turned dark too. Now, we are back

  • kikaysikat

    Talaga sis? Geez.. thanks for this. I actually stopped taking Ishi na since 3 months ago. I'm taking snow caps as of now. Hanggang July na lang contract ng agelessbeautypotion sa banner sa taas, naka 1 yr kasi sya. Hindi ko na lang irerenew. Sayang credibility ng blog ko.

  • Gel Luzod

    Actually sis, ok yung 1st bottle ko sa kanila so I tried my 2nd bottle sa kanila din. Then ayun paitim kami ng paitim:(
    Binabasa ko muna reviews mo before I try the brand. I know kasi honest ka when it comes to your reviews. Yung vitapack sis,ok talaga and now I am taking snow caps. Medyo bumabalik na kulay namin. Hope to read more of your reviews sis.

  • mykpando .

    I couldn't agree more,, ano kayang Gluta ang nilagay nila(?).. M just finishing my last bottle,, naka 4 ako,, wala ni katiting na glow kumapit sa akin,, unlike dun sa ibang brand na nasubukan ko.

  • Cris

    Kinombo ko ishi tsaka snow parang nangingitim ako nung kinombo ko na ishi. Ititigil ko na ishi grabe sayang lang pera ko 2 bottles pa naman binili ko.

  • Cathy garcia

    I dont think ishigaki makes you dark,its all in your mind.maybe you just want the result fast.there is no research telling that glutahione makes the skin dark..its the sun exposure makes the skin dark

  • Catherine Esguerra

    Ask lang po bkit ang effect skin ng ishi premium super hair fall NASA pang 3rd bottle nq den nanotice q super numipis yng hair q.tnake q xa w fern c.any suggestion of mas effective na gluta

  • pmargaret

    Hello thanks for sharing this 🙂 Meron lang po akong question. Is there any minimum weight requirement to take this supplement? Okay lang po ba kung a person who weighs around 40-45 kilos will take this?

  • kikaysikat

    I dont know Catherine. I stopped using Ishi na nga (as seen on the top of my posts) I heard bad things about it na so I stopped taking it na idn and updated my post..

    You can google "kikaysikat best glutathione" to see more brands and reviews I made. I always keep them updated. Hiyangan kasi talaga

  • Djor

    Hi! I've been taking this for around 5-6 months na, could i ask pwede ma share niyo what bad things ang narinig niyo about sa ishi premium. Honestly im a doctor but i have no idea about the brand names ng iba ibang gluta at effects nila. Haha.

  • april

    Hi Good Day! because of your blog, I decided to give Ishi a try but it's too late na coz i bought Ishi Advance instead of Ishi Premium. Ngaun ko lang kasi talaga nabasa ng buo ung mga comments/feedback. I check agelessbeauty website last week but it's out of stock. so nakita ko ung Ishi sa Lazada.. Now I have one. Eto un Ishigaki Advanced Ultrawhite L-Glutathione 1000mg Capsules Bottle of 60. Sana hindi naman magyellowish ung skin ko.

  • Nix

    Question, 1 cap is recommended daily but I was wondering if it would be better if I take 2 caps daily since I'm morena and I smoke pa. Would that make the effects faster/better or same lang and masasayang lang kung 2 caps? Thank you!

  • Daniel

    hi Ms. Kat! do you have any plans of trying glutax 75gs softgell capsules? I was planning to switch from snow caps to glutax 75gs kasi but there aren't any review available. Hoping for your reply 😀
