Pond’s BB+ Cream Launch

20130307_113517

Pond’s recently launched its newest breakthrough product, and I am so excited to be part of it! (This is what I’ve been hinting to you guys last month!) It is revolutionary and super hardworking, as it acts as your moisturizer, makeup and sunblock in one. It is perfect for us ladies on the go. It cuts our morning prep time in half, while still getting the results we want, which is a smooth and even complexion. The wonder product is called POND’S BB+ CREAM, and I think it may be the best innovation of Pond’s yet!

Now, I know BB creams (BB means beauty balm, by the way) are nothing new. The market is teeming with different versions of the product, with Korean brands leading the pack. You would think that it was invented in Korea, but actually the beauty balm was formulated by a German dermatologist, Dr. Christine Schrammek in the 1950s, who used the cream to protect and provide natural light coverage for the sensitive skin of patients who had just undergone laser treatments and surgery. It was made popular in Korea a few years ago, when a famous actress got into a car accident and had to have her face surgically reconstructed. In just a matter of weeks, her skin was glowing and she became more beautiful than she was before the accident. She, of course, attributed her new beauty to the BB cream, and unintentionally started a growing trend across Asia, mesmerizing practically every woman who have tried it.

And now, Pond’s finally introduces the next generation in skin perfection: Pond’s BB+ cream offers a powerhouse of benefits, providing skin with a radiant glow, instant natural coverage and superior sun protection of SPA 30 PA++. It is available in Flawless White (brightens skin and reduces dark spots) and Age Miracle (an anti-aging solution that reduces wrinkles and fine lines). This by the way, is my latest endorsement, and I am so happy, excited and proud to be representing this amazing product!

The launch was just last week, and was attended by Pond’s skincare ambassadors, celebrities, media and bloggers. It was a fun and pretty garden party (pretty because everyone was dressed in summer florals), with yummy food and outstanding entertainment the entire afternoon.
