Pond’s Oil Control Talc - Orange Peel Extracts : Review, swatches

Hello gorgeous :)

You might hate it when your Mom says " I told you so" but in reality she is always right. Something like that happened with this talc as well. You know how we Oil skinned creatures try to find things which keep oily face oil free and run behind fancy things and neglect basics.  My Mum kept telling me to try this but I never did.

 One fine day I tried  and “ I told you so “ were the next the words I heard .

My Experience with Pond’s Oil Control Talc - Orange Peel Extracts:

The bottle is sturdy and has twist cap mechanism through which required amount of the talcum powder can be dispensed easily and then seals back effectively. I won’t go on explaining the beauty of the bottle as I don’t know how to describe the shape and it can be seen in the picture.

The powder is light orangish in color, not extremely finely milled but not harsh either.  Powder has fresh orangey scent to it and it remains till the bottle finishes.

Once you have applied it evenly, it absorbs the extra oil on your face and gives a matte finish. It does control oil for good amount of time. Since its talc it does have a habit of clinging onto the skin if the skin is dry and applied liberally. So take a little amount and apply it evenly. I do like the fresh look it gives. Also, it can be used underarms, it effectively keeps the body order at bay. I have been keeping one in my gym bag recently.

Affordable Powder India
This much amount is enough for 2 usage
•   It has sun protection which is effective to an extent.
•   These bottles are travel friendly and have made it to our every travels.

My Mum has been using it since forever and she will continue buying it until they stop making it. I do like it, but since I am dusky I have to be careful with it. One cannot mindlessly apply it as it can leave a whitish cast. That is the only reason I end up using sheer compact powder over this when I am in hurry. It's extremely affordable and works. Give it try.  Recommend.

If it’s been lying in your house, try it if you havenot tried allready.
And if you like it " I told you so" :P

Have you used this? Which powder are you using currently?

Live life to the fullest.
