Happy Saturday everyone! I will be off for a different hair treatment this afternoon. I am quite excited as that will be another report for you. For now, I will show you what I learned last week. I was one of the bloggers invited for an intimate dinner and talk about the new Pond's Pure White product that has been causing a stir after the commercial was launched this month. Have you seen the commercial of Pond's Pure White Deep Cleansing Foam with Activated Carbon?
Carbon on my face? But why???
Pond's reveals its little black beauty secret with the new powerful Pond's Pure White Facial Foam! It has the technology of activated carbon that attracts deep-seated "black" dirt caused by impurities, oil and make-up to reveal a pure white you.
And if you're still confused how carbon, shall I say, activated carbon could help us, here's a shot taken to show you...
Carbon, when "heated" or they call it "activated" become 8x more porous, which gives space for it to absorb more dirt and oil thus leaving a clean and clearer skin. (You can view and enlarge photo below).
And what's more exciting? Science laboratory time! It is quite difficult to understand how such "black" product can help remove "black", thus, our friends from Pond's showed us visibly for easy understanding for non-scientists like us!
A dark water, that looks like grape juice, was right in front of us. We were asked to filter the water with only the dark water and one mixed with "activated" carbon. Each glass has 2 filters.
Check out the color of the water on glass after filtered. As seen on photo below, the dirty water mixed with carbon was filtered really well, dirt from the dirty water was said to be absorbed by the carbon! Amazing right?
Fellow bloggers enjoying the experiment!
Looks like the product is super promising! I haven't used Pond's for quite some time, my mother-in-law is helping me test out Age Miracle, my sister is loving her Flawless White series, with this? I am so intrigued I will test this myself! I am just done with my sample of EcoBeau Cleansing Foam and I'm ready to use "activated carbon" on my face!!! I'll definitely report back.
