My current cleanser

When I got sick, I ran out of my fave RDL Placenta soap. Of course I couldn't leave my bed, so I decided to just not be picky and use whatever cleanser is in the bathroom. Well, it so happened to be Pond's.

The one I'm using right now is Pond's Perfect Care (the one with the bright green cap). I really didn't like it at first. In fact, I severely disliked it! My face would get bumpy and lose its glow, so I'd keep on stopping after one or two times (which explains why it's in the bathroom shelf). When I used this for a prolonged period last week - completely out of necessity - I broke out along my jaw. But things ironed out eventually after around the 4th consecutive use, and now this facial wash and I are inseparable. I'm well enough to shop now, but I don't think I will be buying placenta soap soon.

I like that my face is smoother and clearer. In fact right now I'm at the office and I just have BB cream and mineral translucent powder on - no need for a concealer or skin-enhancing foundation. Since I've been sick, I've stopped my skincare regimen and only used this cleanser. Yeah, I was too pukey to be vain last week. Good thing the adventure turned out fine.

Perfect Care is Pond's most basic facial wash designed for normal skin. I have far from normal skin, so this one dries me out horribly - nothing a moisturizer can't solve though. I'll keep on using this product for the meantime, but I'd really like to try that black Pond's cleanser that Phoebe blogged about. Here's a pic:

Tried looking for this one in the supermarket yesterday, but didn't see anything. Hey Pond's how about you send me one! I won't be much use as a Pond's Beauty Ambassador if I don't have the latest stuff you know! Just kidding. But I'm not kidding about wanting to try it.
