Pond’s Age Miracle Night Cream Review and Timeless Bites with Experts
Pond’s age miracle range was the first anti ageing range of products that actually has introduced me to the word of anti ageing. I still remember the advertisements on TV back then and getting curious to know if these anti ageing stuff really work! Since I did not need anti ageing products at that time, never gave it a shot. However recently Pond’s came up with the revamped age miracle range (with a new improved formula ?) and I was sent a sample of the night cream to try. Pond’s Age Miracle Night Cream has already been reviewed on ETM long back, but I liked it enough to do a mini review on again for those who are planning to include this age miracle night cream in their skin care regimen. 🙂
Price: INR 549/- for 50 gms
My Experience with Pond’s Age Miracle Night Cream:
Packaging, ingredients and the look of the cream does feel same as previously mentioned in the review. I have not used the older one to actually give you a comparison (if at all there are any changes), however I did like the feel of my skin with this night cream a lot better than many other I have used so far.
The velvety texture is what got me hooked from the first night. Also the visible glow next morning is something I really enjoy. I always wake up with skin that is normal on the cheeks with a hint of oil around my nose. With this night cream that does not change. I still wake up with the same kind of oil around my nose and a normal skin, but there is a visible radiance on my face now. I feel there was a dullness that this age miracle night cream has managed to tackle. 🙂
It has been more than 3 weeks and I am quite happy with the small changes in my appearance. There are also some temporary effects that I think is great for people with oily skin. It seals the pores to make skin appear a lot more smoother, skin looks more even, the brightening effect and velvety smooth skin makes me want to use it during the day as well, but oh well, doesn’t make sense so I am restricting myself. 😐 I wish I had a day cream with similar effects and SPF with me for day use.
I am not sure how it will react on sensitive skin due to the presence of AHA, which actually is a good ingredient, but not one to suit every skin. I am getting occasional break outs that come and go in 2-3 days, but that’s usual for me . And since it has not aggravated my condition in any way, I think its not really the cream but summer playing around with my skin.
Pond’s Age Miracle Anti-ageing Night Cream Swatch
Anyways since I am talking about Pond’s age miracle night cream, I thought of sharing few tips for a glowing healthy skin with this portable anti-ageing diet that Ponds Age Miracle range along with expert Dr. Rashmi Shetty and celebrated Chef Ranveer Brar have come up with which can e included in your daily routine without much of an effort. After all its all about what our body takes in. 🙂
- Turmeric milk a day keeps the dullness away!
Turmeric is a popular healer for dry and damaged skin. Chef Ranveer Brar suggests,“It maintains the skin’s elasticity and slows down the ageing process. If you’re still not convinced, do note that it also keeps dullness away!”
Dr. Rashmi Shetty explains, “The under eye skin area is very delicate and the absence of oil glands, make moisturizing a must for it. Include foods like milk, yoghurt that maintain your skin’s elasticity and also use a night cream to keep your skin nourished at all times”
- The not-so-fat essential fatty acids
Chef Ranveer Brar mentions, “Fats and acids in the same sentence don’t sound too exciting when it comes to health. However, they are the key to achieve glowing young skin.” Seafood and Soybeans, besides being rich in Fatty acids, make great holiday foods.
Speaking of Fatty acids Dr. Rashmi Shetty says, “CLA, is a component of Fatty Acid which helps renew skin cells and is a great source to maintain your skin’s youth.”
Hence, look for creams or serums rich in CLA and Glycerol to repair and protect the skin.
- Visit the Vitamin Vault
Chef Ranveer Brar recommends indulging in Italian food as it is cooked with tomatoes and lot of garlic. The antioxidants in tomatoes and the anti inflammatory properties of garlic help fight away the aging components in the body. So add a dash of citrus to your daily dietto feel fresh and energetic
The expert, Dr. Rashmi Shetty adds, “Speaking of anti-aging, Retinol a form of Vitamin A does wonders to prevent ageing. In fact, it is recognized as one of world’s best ingredients to fight signs of aging. Products that contain Retinol are a great way to externally treat dullness and aging spots.” For an extra dose of retinol include grapefruit, papaya and carrots in your diet.
Coming back to Pond’s age miracle night cream, it works for all skin types and is not too rich hence you can use it during summers easily without worrying about greasiness. I haven’t noticed any major improvement in skin texture, but it does tackle dullness effectively. It could show better results when clubbed together with the Age Miracle foam wash and serum, but I haven’t used either so can not really comment. Those looking for a hardcore anti ageing product to tackle wrinkles may not find it as effective. I feel its a nice product that anyone in their late 20’s and early 30’s should try.
