I have been using Ponds since I was 13 and I am 66 and people say I look 45. I never use soap to irritate my skin,as it will dry it out. I have always used Pond's Cleanser and it removes make-up and dirt great. It keeps my skin very soft.
Love It!!!

This product is probably best for people with DRY, sensitive skin. I liked that this product is very low-cost (I'm switching from my higher-end cosmetic counter products in order to save some money). I was hoping this product would work for me, since I have sensitive skin....but it didn't work for me since I also have oily, sensitive skin. I know....weird combination: Oily AND sensitive. If I use products that are completely natural, I have had allergic reactions or chemical-type burns. I tried Ponds and found that the product left a very greasy feeling on my face - the product never quite came off my face no matter how many times I tried to wipe it off with a damp washcloth. After my face dried (and I used my toner and my normal moisturizer), my skin still looked greasy. When I applied my makeup, it looked all caked-on even after I washed it with Ponds and my regular toner. I have not had this problem before with my other facial products. Personally, I just don't think that those of us with oily skin can use this product. Disappointing, given all the positive reviews....

    Comments about POND'S Cold Cream Cleanser, 9.5 oz:

    I started performing in public when I was 6 years old. When makeup was required, my mother said to use this to get it off. It never failed to remove anything. If it had been a real mess, I followed with a swabbing of witch hazel for toner, then some more of this. When I got old enough to wear makeup everyday, I continued to use this. I never bothered with any other night cream afterwards. I do a thorough washing (with soap), toning and moisturizing with some fancier stuff when I get up.

    I have fair, extremely sensitive skin, rosacea and am in my 60s. If this doesn't bother my skin, it likely will not bother yours. I still get lots of compliments on my complexion and don't even have crow's feet (yet!).

    When new, expensive makeup removers (which almost all have alcohol in them) began to show everywhere, I had salesgirls telling me that cold cream clogs your pores. It does not and I am living proof. They're trying to scare you away from anything but their stuff. I even tried some of their stuff. I've never found anything that does as thorough a job as cold cream.

    I have never met a cosmetic that cold cream will not remove. All you have to do is take some on your fingertips and gently rub over the makeup you want off. Then use a tissue to remove the cream, which has picked up the makeup. If the makeup didn't all come off, do it again. You can keep doing it again because it is inexpensive and will not hurt you, unless you are rubbing too hard.

    Even if you stick latex on your face with latex adhesive, for stage or Halloween, cold cream
    (and latex remover) will help you ease that off without killing your skin.

    Some people said that this version of it isn't as good as the original. That might be for them. But I haven't noticed anything that would make me stop using this. Ponds is the best deal of the current cold creams. It's still great stuff!

      Use everyday for moisturizing and removal of makeup which does both beautifully. Have used going way back into my teens. When somebody asks me what I use on my face - they say I have great skin I tell them Ponds Cold Cream and then they ask what else and I tell them nothing just Ponds. It's the best.

            Thought I was buying the original Pond's Cold Cream....got this stuff instead. Watered down cold cream. It's messy and it runs. If you use the original like I've been doing for years you won't like this.

                        Comments about POND'S Cold Cream Cleanser, 9.5 oz:

                        I've tried a handful of tissue-off/water-free cleansers but I always come back to this. I've also tried the make-up remover cleansing wipes. This just seems to get the makeup off the best after one go. It's also nice to massage the product into a full face of makeup and wipe it all off. Especially wiping off liquid make-up. I use this and a cleanser to wash off the residue of this product to clean my face.

                        I'm a performer so I wear heavy make-up almost to a daily basis and this is so far the only product that can get off all the makeup without leaving my face red as well. (I have sensitive and combo skin more on the dry side)

                        The bad thing about this stuff is the oilyness it leaves my fingers and on my face. It's not a big-deal because I usually shower right after but it's just a bit messy. I don't break out from it as well so I get over that part of it. It's also difficult to travel with as it is considered a liquid product on a carry-on.

                          I have been using Pond's Cold Cream for over 50 years as a facial cleanser instead of soap and water and my skin is smooth and clean. Everyone says I look 10 to 15 years younger than my age of 67. I wouldn't use anything else. Great results.
