Finding a good BB cream for oily and acne prone skin is literally like hitting gold! The oily and acne prone skin, struggles are many, and a good BB cream is just one of them! Ponds BB Cream - 01 Original is my current favourite BB cream and I am going to talk a bit about how it is good for my skin.
A few things on why Ponds BB cream is my favourite
No sweat Formula - I sweat a lot in summers, or to be specific my face sweats a lot. The best thing about Pond's BB cream is that it doesn't even sweat upon immediate application or some hours. Any sun protecting cream or lotion if it sweats the sun protecting agents in them become less or zero effective. Pond's BB cream has absolutely nailed the formula with a sweat proof SPF 30 which offers light coverage plus sun protection.
Natural looking glow - Now coming to the claim of brand regarding colour matching to the skin tone while giving a natural glow. This holds very true in case of the shade 01 Original for my fair to medium skin tone. The product gives a medium coverage but acne marks look ashy. But it definitely conceals the pores on the nose and the face. However the product might look ashy on the pigmented areas or dark acne marks.
Non comedogenic - The cream absolutely doesn't clog pores or give any bumps post usage or with daily usage. My skin is oily and acne prone and this BB cream perfectly suits my skin. I like how it gives me an even toned skin while not giving me any acne. I always apply this BB cream over a light weight moisturizer or sometimes I even skip using a moisturizer beneath it and it perfectly works in both the cases. However after talking about so many good things of the product I have mentioned some negative points of the product below in 'The Out' section

Ponds BB Cream Review - 01 Original
I would suggest you to try the Pond's BB cream once, they have very small tube available. The light to medium coverage it offers with a sweat proof and non comedogenic formula is amazing. The cream blends in very easily without the help of any cosmetic tool and this makes the product worth an investment. The product is affordable, easily available and apt for daily use. However if you are into non cruelty free products or brand then this is not a good option as Pond's is not a cruelty free.
