My Opinion:-
My skin is oily but turns combination in winters. So I decided to use Pond's Age Miracle Resurfacing Day Cream as I heard rave reviews about it. All fellow bloggers said its good for combination/oily skin, hence the purchase. So here are my views on this amazing cream. Now I have been using it for more than 45 days so thought of reviewing this cream

The packaging is very cute but impractical. The tub is made of sturdy glass in the shape of a tear drop. It has a screw on red lid which makes the jar/tub attractive. A white plastic protective lid can be found when main screw on lid is taken off. This cream comes boxed in a red & silver carton. The packaging is good for travelling but its quite heavy as its made of thick glass. The fragrance seems fruity but at times it seems floral as well :P

The texture is thick creamy but light instead of rich. Its a very pale pink cream with extremely fine shimmer in it which makes the skin glow. This cream gets absorbed easily and fast. Just a few tiny dots on my face and neck is enough for complete coverage. It gives a powdery matte finish to my skin. I use it after cleansing each morning and I am good to go as it also contains SPF.

I have at times topped it with foundation and it has always made my foundation stay longer. This cream shocked me when it made my skin matte and kept greasiness at bay for a good 3 hours. After that it was non-matte but still not greasy. Upon application this cream instantly whitens my skin, fades off spot thereby making my skin even and radiant. I am 24 and I don't have wrinkles so I can't comment on the effectiveness of it against fine lines/wrinkles/age-spots.

I am using it as a moisturiser and not as an anti-ageing cream. This cream will unfortunately not suit dry skin as it has this mattifying effect on the skin. Though I didn't use it in the peak of summers, I don't know how it will fare with my oily skin at that time. But I have found a great moisturiser for the rest of the year. The only problem with this cream is that the packaging is cute but impractical because cream is stuck to the inner corner/rim of the jar and only a q-tip can remove it.

Pros:-
* Doesn't make my skin greasy
* Well priced, affordable
* Makes the skin instantly fair and gives a nice glow
* Works great as a primer, holds foundations & blush for a long time
* Suitable for combination & oily skin

Cons:-
* Not suitable for dry skin as the company says ''Suits all skin types''
* Product gets stuck at the inner rim of jar which is difficult to remove
* Though the packaging is cute yet I would prefer a tube instead as I hate to dig my nails into the jar every morning (I have long Nails)

I rate this Pond's Age Miracle Daily Resurfacing Cream 4.5 out of 5. Works well as a moisturiser and also as a primer and to top it all, its my first anti-ageing cream after the Pond's TM. I am happy with the results and I have already bought another jar as I have hit bottom of this jar as you can see. Thanks and have a great day :)

Women are able to do nearly something once it involves their physical side. we tend to all understand that beauty is females' secret weapon which is strictly the explanation why they're therefore obsessed to take care of their youth. sadly, after we age the body becomes weaker and also the skin loses its tightness and freshness. Wrinkles became the amount one priority of beauty specialists, so, in time, they need developed opposing aging product so as to assist ladies get eliminate wrinkles and different skin issues.
