I don't really attend beauty events as often anymore for the reason that (so far), I have already found a line-up of products that work best on me.
But of course, there are a few exceptions to that rule, and one of them is Pond's new Pearl Cleansing Gel.
At my age, I'm pretty picky already when it comes to skincare because I'm at that crucial point when lines and wrinkles really begin to show. I tend to spend a lot on creams but (last year's) Pond's Flawless White Dewy Rose Gel moisturizer was the only drugstore variant of its price range that made the cut for me and I have been using it eversince (see review here).
Pond's Pearl Cleansing Gel was launched yesterday as the perfect partner to last year's moisturizer and to complete their whitening gel regimen so you understand why I had to go. ☺
The event was held in R Space, Makati with special guest and beauty guru, Agoo Bengzon who was there to give a talk on the latest Beauty Trends this season.

Also present were brand ambassadors and self-confessed Pond's Girls Kryz Uy, Tricia Gosingtian, Laureen Uy and Patricia Prieto:

It was a short, sweet and fairly intimate event which mostly revolved around basic make-up techniques, skincare, the new product and how it works.

A skin test was simulated to show us the difference between Pond's Pearl Cleansing Gel and its leading competitor:

Here's what I learned about Gel Cleansers:
- contains milder ingredients than whitening soaps making it suitable for sensitive skin
- non-drying - hydrating
- removes dirt more efficiently but does not drag your skin's moisture with it
- does not cause breakouts or clog pores
- dissolves faster and more effectively into the skin while locking in moisture

I was amazed at the test results, there was a significant difference between dirt removed and skin breakage between the two products.
I found myself thinking that this is a perfect example of science and beauty working together to create efficient and affordable new solutions for skincare.
I couldn't wait to try it myself and that's exactly what I did last night before going to bed...

Lo and behold, just like the gel moisturizer, I was equally impressed with Pond's new Pearl Cleansing Gel.
Not only did it leave my skin feeling squeaky clean and supple, it also got rid of 80% of my waterproof eye make-up just by washing my face! Less work for my make-up remover and good enough for lazy days when you just feel like washing, moisturizing and going to bed. ♥
Pond's Pearl Cleansing Gel along with the Dewy Rose Gel Moisturizer makes it a lot easier to achieve that "fresh-faced" look for a flawless selfie. :P
It's super affordable at just P85 for the 50g tube and P185 for the 100g tube.
