Pond's Age Miracle Freebies.

Despite appearing to be a beauty product junkie, I'm actually low maintenance when it comes to cosmetics.  I rarely wear make-up and I don't have any beauty regimen (purchasing is another matter though because Sephora always manages to tempt me into buying things I don't really use ;))).  I also think it's too early to worry about wrinkles and age lines but nagging reminders from magazine articles to take good care of skin, especially the face, made me think about the numerous times I pranced around the beach with zero sunblock on.  

So, while buying groceries earlier, I felt that I owed my used and abused skin something and got this.

Pond's Overnight Repair Dream Night Cream.
Pond's Overnight Repair Dream works overtime as you sleep to diminish signs of aging, minimizes the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and prevents more from appearing, prevents dullness and enhances overall skin radiance and maintains skin textures, tone and elasticity.

I got to try this before because the swag bags during my highschool reunion included little bottles of this product.  Trials are extremely important to me because I have the curse of being allergic to everything created to beautify people. That's good news to people who have hypersensitive skin like me, this product is safe for us!  The cream is P549 ($12) and comes with a small sample of Dual Eye Therapy UV.  Plus, they have a giveaway for purchases of P500 and above.

They're prettier in person :)

When these bags were shown to me by the Sales Associate, I thought I had to choose between them.  Sorry for the initial skepticism but the Philippine market isn't really generous when it comes to freebies, most of the time they're either too small or utterly useless.  Which was why I was really happy with this Pond's promo.

The bags were packed neatly inside a clear pink envelope and labeled Intimates, Shoes and Gizmos.    'Shoes' is a drawstring bag, 'Intimates' is a zip up bag and 'Gizmos' is a padded bag. 

It's nice how they added pads to both sides of this bag since it's for gizmos.

Ok, you got me.  I bought the cream not for the anti-aging benefits but for the bags.  And yes, I wrote this entry not for the product but for the freebies.

So sue me ;)

In any case, do you think it's too early to invest in anti-aging products during your mid-twenties?


  1. I think it depends on the type of the anti-aging product! Don't thonk you're supposed to use something to strip you off wrinkles that you don't yet have, but you're supposed to moisturize and this is still considered one of the anti-aging "technics".

    As for teh trials, it's also important to me, but not really because I'm allergic to pruducts, but because most seem to make no difference and have no impact on my skin. It's not often that I come across a product that really works for me and makes things better, so when I do, I stick with it loyally!! For example, I've been using the same face wash gel for like 8 years now!

  2. Julia. You've got great skin thats why you don't need to use a lot of products :)

    Congratulations on the radio interview, girl! That's really something! :)

  3. haha, nice! not the promos, but, THE POST ^_^

    enjoyed reading, sis.

    been a follower months back but i'll follow thru GFC. keep posting.

  4. I don't know, I'm 30 and I've yet to buy any anti aging products! Your post makes me think that I really ought too though:)


  5. nice freebies from pond's, tempting me to buy it too although i don't really use this anti-aging product of theirs.

    but on to your question, is it too early? maybe not. i once thought it is too earlytil i saw this lighted signage ad by Myra E and it says skin aging actually starts at 25!

    i use Avon's ANew serum. but pond's is a good beauty product.

  6. I agree with Julia! I started using anti-aging products late in my teens, haha. But not the kind that's overkill - just the wrinkle preventive stuff, antioxidants, stuff like that. :-P

  7. I adore those little bags! I'm 22 but haven't started using anti-aging products yet. I do take good care of my skin, though! :)


  8. Imriz. Thank you! Really appreciate it :)

    Sher. You're 30?! You don't look like it!! (That's a compliment :))

  9. Lizzie. That's what I read in magazine articles, too. Although Asians are lucky because they age slower than Caucasians and African-Americans are the luckiest because they age last. BUT I abuse my skin by going under the sun the whole day in the beach with zero sunblock on. So.. That got me thinking :/

    The Manila Girl. I agree. The product I bought is preventive stuff.. I think ;)

  10. Leia. And you're so healthy! You're vegan now right? Wish I could be like you :)

  11. If there's one thing I regret not doing when I was 25 was lather up some moisturizer on my face and neck. I did it about 10 years later pa. I use this too and the 'age miracle' haha :)

  12. Mommy Judy. So I guess it's not too early to use these products huh? :) Thanks for the tip!


Thank you for the love!

I enjoy meeting fellow bloggers and readers from all over so feel free to comment and I'll get back to you as soon as I can :)
