I'm giving this product 5 stars right off the bat, because it definitely does what it says it will! So it works! I purchased mine online from CVS and I've been using it (probably not as consistently as I should be) for about 4 weeks now. I really like the creamy texture of this as well. I definitely think you get a lot of bang for your buck, too! Quite a bit of product comes in the container, and a little bit goes a long wear. It's easy to apply and covers your face with a pea size amount. My ONLY complaint is the way it feels on my skin. I feel like it dries out my skin, and has a weird texture after it applied to the skin. It almost feels like you're trying to slide your fingers across a non-slip surface. It's not sticky or tacky, though. My skin feels drier even after applied, so I wouldn't consider this to be "moisturizing". I like to apply a night cream over top before I go to bed to give my skin the hydration it needs. If you're looking for something that's going to rid you of darks spots, plus moisturize your skin, then this isn't the product for you. All in all, I like this product. I can already see a difference in my dark spots, and I think it will continue to diminish the look of them. I'd recommend it solely for diminishing dark spots/post acne marks!

I used up one of the small jars in just over one month. My skin is changing as inch ever closer to my 40's and i am adjusting to dryer skin instead of the oily/combo skin if my twenty's early 30's. I don't feel like this moisturizer is a stand alone for dryness, especially as a night cream, i still find my face feeling dry once it sinks in. I have very pale skin, and was cursed with always sweating from my head and face flushing when i'm hot, the constant wiping of my face in summer quickly wears my sunscreen away and i've began getting some dark spots, more than the "cute" freckles of childhood. I thought the Pond's started lightening them slightly in the first two weeks, but didn't notice any more of a difference after that. I can't say if it helps with acne mark fading as i don't have any, but for sun damage it did not do much and i would need something much more aggressive. I do think if i did decide to use something stronger to fade the dark spots i would use this moisturizer in between for extra moisture, and under makeup as i never had any issue applying makeup over it. My only wish would be for an SPF in this cream.

So i have just recently bought me a sample jar of this in the walmart bin. I already have the ponds anti-wrinkle, hence, my grandmother put me on it lol. Ive already used the ponds anti-wrinkle many time, and i like the cream, dont just head over heel love it. Honestly, i like this cream better. Reasons being, is it has B3 dark spot correcting cream in it, so i decided to spend the two dollars and buy it. I have oily, acne prone skin, so i have to be careful with what i put on my face, otherwise i will break out. When applying a small amount, this cream is wonderful. The smell is lovely, the texture is thick, but not greasy, and i have acne scars that are starting to diminish, just by using this 3 times. I am fairly impressed with this product, expecially it being so cheap. Ponds is the way to go. A brand that has been around a long time, and has established itself, you gotta respect that. Overall, i give this cream 4 stars. If i have even better results in a month..then i will review

Today I want to share with you guys how I use Ponds Towelettes and moisturizer to keep my skin looking healthy. One thing that is vey important to me is to always remove my makeup at night and I love using the PONDS towelettes evening sooth. Not only do I love how quick and easy they remove my makeup but also how they sooth my skin with the relaxing fragrance of Chamomile and White Tea.

It's also very important to always moisturize your skin which is why I like using the PONDS Clarant B3 for normal to dry skin. As a little girl I would watch my mom use these products but never knew the real benefits they offered. Which is why today I always look for a moisturizes that benefits my skin in more ways than one. Here is a list of benefits that the PONDS Clarant B3 moisturizer offers.


Even skin tone in 2 weeks
Reduces the appearance of dark spots in 4 weeks
Vitamins B3 & C
If you would like to try these products you can find them at your local Walmart.

I wrote the same review on Ponds Dry Skin Cream as well bc im not sure which product is causing this at the moment. I will update once known. Im so upset because I was so excited about using this after reading all of the great reviews. It did the complete opposite to me then what everyone else is saying. :( I have been determined for the past 2 months to clear my face of acne so I have been using a lot of products and need a great moisturizer to use through this acne clearing process. I havent changed my acne product in a month, so I know it's not that that is causing my skin to be horribly dry. I just started using this, along with Ponds Dry Skin Cream, 5 days ago. Within the second day my face was SO dry that even my eyelids had flaky skin!! It's horrible!! I'm going to continue to use only for a few more days to see if anything changes, but as for now it's not looking good. I want results like everyone else. :(

Gosh I wish I could give this 10 stars!! I as a teen broke out a lot! Not like cystic acne a lot but pimples here and there on the worse spots ( like chin, middle of eyebrows, upper lip, etc) and often picked at my breakouts. This caused really ugly acne scars, that I was very insecure of. Note that I sucked at doing makeup at the time, but yeah it was horrible. Then my mother suggested this cream because well almost my whole Mexican family, believes in this stuff. and to my surprise most of my scars have gotten lighter or disappeared. I use this in my daily night and morning routine. I cleanse with an organic coconut and papaya milk cleanser, tone with witch hazel from the target brand then apply this ( small amounts because it does feel a bit oily after) and I'm set. I like it because it sets my foundation so It works as a primer, doesn't feel to heavy and helps with my scaring. highly recommend !

I purchased this product in the type for normal to oily skin and I really like it. I had some hyperpigmentation and dark spots from acne scars and this along with taking a biotin supplement helped tremendously clear my skin and I can see the difference. Because of this product, most of my dark spots are faded and some have disappeared completely. In addition to reducing dark spots it also moisturizes my skin and after I wash my face and put this on my skin becomes SO soft. I paid about $8 for this which is a great value, considering I've had it for six months and have not even used half of it. A little goes a long way and it truly worked for me. The only negative is the availability I couldn't find the version for oily skin in any store that I went to, so I had to purchase it from jet.com. But, I don't really mind because the amount of product lasts so long that I won't have to constantly order it.

Mi experiencia: La crema no es del todo mala, hace un buen trabajo humectado el rostro porque no engrasa la piel (de hecho, es mejor con pieles grasas) y aunque mi piel no es de éste tipo, es mixta, me va mejor con en este tipo de productos. Ahora bien, la crema promete un montón de servicios que no cumple por completo, su beneficio principal es aclarar, pero me he dado cuenta de que acabé el bote de producto y no surtió efecto en absoluto, si bien la piel se ve más humectada y saludable pero aún se conservan las manchas (situación que se supone que la crema repara) así que no cumple. Si la buscas para aclarar pecas o manchas no la compres porque no sirve para eso. Este producto contiene vitamina activa B3 para luchar contra la decoloración y el tono desigual de la piel, y C para la propiedades antioxidantes que rejuvenecen la piel. La crema es de 50g y es de un precio accesible.

POND'S saved my face. My acne left me with a lot of hyperpigmentation I tried various methods of lightening the scars but none of them seemed to work. It was like my journey with acne was not truly over because the scars still remained. I purchased the trial size version of this product on a whim, and to my surprise I saw results in my first week of use. Within my third week of use some scars had disappeared completed and only the extremely tough ones were left. I used to refuse to leave the house without concealing my dark marks, but now I'm comfortable enough to go makeup free. People actually compliment the clearness of my face, which is something I never expected to experience in this lifetime. The product has a soft floral scent and the only con I've found is that it enlarges my pores, which is something I can deal with.

I've recently been using this product and i have been noticing slight brightness on my face. After applying it, i needed to get used to it for a while because my skin is sensitive. My eyes started getting watery after i applied cream near them, so i suggest that you don't apply this on your eyes. It is quite moisturizing and the cream is absorbed quickly. The only problem i have with this product is that it is too small and the price is a bit high for the quantity. I have dark spots on the sides of my nose and my bottom lip. Using this product has brightened my face, but i think if you want to brighten just specific spots on your face, that might be better as it will be more noticeable. Overall, i would get this product again if it were bigger and for the price, it's ok. It does what it's supposed to, so I'm pleased.
