AMW Reports: Pond's Flawless White Unbeaten Challenge --- Mission Accomplished!

Early April, I posted about me trying out the Pond's Flawless White Range as Sophie (my partner) would write about my experiences!  That explains why I wasn't able to blog about any skin care for quite some time as I was really strict on using only the PFW line!  I removed BB creams and what-nots for the next 3 weeks and I can't believe the day finally arrived!  I survived the challenge and my skin is doing not only well but really good! 

Last April 12, 2011, Pond's invited us for the Pond's Flawless White Unbeaten Party and the day arrived and here's a huge wall that greeted us as we went to the event.  Nice photos everyone!  I'm sure you'll be able to spot a lot of familiar faces!

The intimate event started with words from Pond's Brand Manager, Ms. Jacqe Yuengtian...

Mika Lagdameo-Martinez, had her moment as she's part of the Pond's Family!

Each team were asked to walk on stage!  Let me introduce you the teams who joined the PFW Unbeaten Challenge!

Thanks to the judges 
Sophie and I won the Editor's Choice Award!  


Congratulations to Ginger and Reena for bagging the award!  I can't wait to see both of you on major glossies this coming June!

After-party Party!  Hi to Sophie's Friends, Trixie and Judd from Nuffnang! 

I also want to thank my friends Mags, Shanna and Bea for coming over to support us!  It rocks to have good friends like them!

It was even more fun when my friend Bea suggested us to have a fierce photo with "The Fierce Rissa Mananquil, the gorgeous Pond's Ambassador!  Thanks Rissa for accepting our request!  

I want to thank Sophie for writing such wonderful articles!  I love our late nights update via email and chat box!  I like the inserts of "personal stories and antics"!  I have to admit, it is a very difficult challenge!  I swear its tempting to give up or cheat in between!  But with the Pond's Flawless White line doing well with my very sensitive and dry skin, I am proud to say, expensive isn't always the best!  You just have to know what your skin needs, check out labels, test the skincare brand before you use it, then be consistent in using it and patience is definitely the key to seeing the real results!

Do read our entry!  Start from number 7 then down to number 1.  The reports were updated  every week and we have done some challenges to test the effectiveness of the Pond's Flawless White range!

Sisters from different parents!

Last but not the least, I want to thank Mr. AMW, the ever supportive friend, partner, boyfriend and hubby!  Thank you for checking out my skin for me and giving me your feedbacks too!  Thanks for the wonderful photos and just for being there! (yes, I had to raise one leg, because....just because, I got the idea from movies!) LOL

To the Pond's Team, Ogilvy and Nuffnang.  Thank you so much for choosing me to be part of this challenge!  I actually had fun amidst the hesitation to give up my ever dependable skin care!

Plains and Prints, thank you so much for dressing us up with such gorgeous dresses!  Theya, thank you so much for helping me at Shangri-La branch, I appreciate it!

Keep in mind that I tested the products 2x before I got in the challenge!  It is very important to do so! :)

Keep smilin'
Stay happy!
