Just when I thought that there was nothing to clarify the horrible stain that was made on my forehead from one day to the next (one God knows why), I see 8 thousand recommendations for this apparently magical cream. Ponds Clarant B3, face bleach, which turned out amazing to 95% of the people I heard or read who tried it.
So I did not hesitate and I bought it to try it, hoping to be one of those many positive cases. But this note should be called “chronicle of a disappointment”, and I’ll tell you why.
I haven’t seen advertising for Ponds Clarant B3 cream, clearly Ponds does not need it. But word of mouth is usually more powerful and I decided to try it after hearing a thousand wonders about the cream.
I must admit that the first try was not particularly careful on my part. I added it to my night routine along with the rest of the products that I have been using. I am not a chemist, but I know and have seen cream mixing effects because of some ingredients that are advised not to mix, even waiting for the indicated absorption time.
So, the cream seems heavy, well concentrated. It has a buttery texture but without oils. The packaging itself (pink and delicate) warns that it can cause a little redness or dryness, even some burning. All signs that, according to the laboratory itself, are common and should not scare the user away.
After two weeks of using it this way and only in the affected area (I know, I realized a little late), I decided to stop using it. I was expecting to see some positive change between 20 and 30 days of use, although most of the good reviews I have heard or read had seen changes in the first few days.
Ponds is not a high-end brand, and still has products that deliver on what they promise. This was not the case.
Not only does it not clarify anything, but in the few cases that it doesn’t work (like mine and a few more that I found), the skin is worse than it was: it changes the type of skin (or rather, the regulation of sebum), removes stains or worsens the ones you already have or, at best, does nothing to you.
Honestly I was very disappointed, although I did not spend too much money to test it, I wasted time waiting for results that never came. Really, I thought about trying some other cream that promised to whiten this divine stain, but I was very suspicious of the promise itself, so I’ll stick to makeup until the “Ponds Clarant” effect wears off.
I hope your experiences with this cream have been better. Tell me in the comments if you have tried it and what was your impression. Have you had good results?
