Pond’s White Beauty BB+ Fairness Cream

Well! Honestly, I’m kinda follower of this quote: “Fairness is not an attitude. It’s a professional skill that must be developed and exercised”. And, by saying this I also want to emphasize that I do not promote any kind of fairness product.

The question arises then, why did I go for this product? No matter how many times Pond’s shout out ‘fairness cream’, the concept of BB or Blemish Balm is nothing but a tinted moisturizer that evens out uneven skin texture like a primer.

So, after giving a fair trial to the product, I am ready to put forward my experience.

So my gorgeous dearies, let’s talk about fairness! I mean Pond’s White Beauty BB+ Fairness Cream SPF 30 PA++  with an in-depth ingredient analysis.

BB Creams vs. CC Creams vs. Foundation: What’s the Difference?

BB cream is a marketing term which stands for Blemish Balm. It serves as a foundation, moisturizer, and sunscreen.

So basically, it works simply all at once. Best to say, it’s an alternative to a foundation. Now, if you have a question on Foundation vs. BB cream, then let me clarify!

BB cream gives you coverage, hydration, tinted, and a finishing look, whereas Foundation solely works on coverage and complexion.

So, the question is what difference is there between a and a CC cream?

CC cream stands for only Colour Correction. It tries to accomplish a part that is usually done by foundations. On the other hand, the benefit of BB cream is that it gives you a lightweight tinted look with the touch of hydration.

Well! Now, if you ask what is better among these 3. The answer would not be that simple. Each cream aims to deliver certain results. So, it entirely depends upon the occasion or the look you want to achieve.

I prefer BB creams on all my working days. For a Weekend brunch or lunch date, I mostly prefer a standard CC cream that has huge shade coverage. And of course, I go for foundations for that ultimate diva look.

Ingredient Analysis of Pond’s White Beauty BB+ Fairness Cream

Pond's BB+Cream Ingredients

Ingredients are a magical part of any product. Well! Analysing the ingredients are indeed a bit difficult; sometimes it is quite confusing as well.

Every ingredient is a chemical including water. But, the question is which chemical component is safe and which is not.

In order to make things simpler, I have analyzed all the ingredients listed on the label in the following table. This table will help you to understand it easily. And, here we go!

The safety index is based out of 10. It indicates how safety an ingredient is for both the environment and also for the human organs. As per EWg (Environmental Workering Group), here is how the safety index is given.

Between 0-2: It is considered as safe

Between 3-5: It is considered as moderately safe to a bit hazardous

Between 7-10: Pretty harmful

Pond's White Beauty BB+ Fairness Cream Ingredients

Undoubtedly, there is nothing extraordinary. Some ingredients like way too many fragrant agents and DMDM Hydantoin might pose pretty harmful.  And thus, I cannot rate the ingredients more than 3 out of 5. So, this is how Pond’s BB+ Fairness Cream has been formulated.


Pond’s White Beauty BB+ Fairness Cream comes in a thin tube with a silver screw cap in deep pink and silver colour combined box. It has a long nozzle and oozes out with just one press that means less wastage.

Aroma and Texture

This BB+ Cream has a mild fragrance, not very empowering. And, within a few minutes, you will feel the fragrance has disappeared.

The texture lies between creamy and thick. It is pretty blendable. The cream does not feel heavy on the face; it just quickly melts on the skin.

My Experience with Pond’s White Beauty BB+ Fairness Cream

Skin Type: Oily, Acne-Prone

Shade, Coverage, and Longevity

Pond's White Beauty BB+ Fairness Cream in 02 Medium Shade Swatch

As of now, it is available in two shades namely light and medium. ’01’ or Original is for light to medium complexion and ’02’ Medium is for medium to deep medium skin tone.

It has quite medium coverage. Seriously, I am not happy with the end result.

In case you want more coverage from BB creams, all you need is a concealer and a powder puffing.

Talking about longevity, it has a long-wearing formula but not upto the mark. But, if you set with a translucent powder, then it may last longer.

My Experience in Brief

Well! I like to use BB cream. These days it is quite popular; especially when you get BB+ Fairness Cream along with an SPF of 30. SPF 30 is perfect for our daily usage.

As per my skin tone, I chose the medium shade. This BB cream has a pretty light-weight texture is that feels non-oily.

Honestly, I would call it a brightening cream rather than a fairness cream. It gives a semi-matte look and just within a couple of hours, I feel my T zone has become oily. It simply oxidises.

In order to solve this, I have started using lasting powder after applying this. And, now it is okay for me.

Pond's BB+ Cream Packaging and Texture

One thing I must say that Pond’s BB Cream in the Medium shade doesn’t make my skin tone ashy. But, it is entirely my outlook! If you feel that way, then you can go for a good concealer.

Undoubtedly, this BB cream gives you an instant glowing look. It covers up mild blemishes.

All you need is just ½ drop product. And of course, it is quite affordable.

The formula might feel a bit drying especially for people with dry skin. In that case, one needs to mix moisturizer along with it. Overall, Pond’s BB+ Cream is an ‘Okay’ product for me! I am not fully satisfied.

A Hit or a Miss!

Pond's White Beauty BB+ Fairness Cream is indeed affordable and comes in many sizes. The performance was not definitely up to the mark. In fact, the formula is absolutely drugstore quality.
