In a world of overly scientific blurb and false promises, a lot can be said for a simple, classic product. Cult favourite Pond’s (famous for over a century for its cold cream) has made a comeback as ‘Pond’s Institute’.
We popped down to the Dorchester (as you do) to try the new formulations and get some expert make-up advice from Arabella Preston. Arabella famously advised the Duchess of Cornwall on her wedding look and has worked with Edie Campbell and Victoria Pendleton amongst others. It was amazing to get some advice, as I am doing my friend Jo’s wedding make-up in a few weeks’ time. Flatteringly, Arabella seemed impressed by my efforts but suggested some helpful tweaks, “you need a bit more powder on the end of her nose”. She really knew her stuff and I feel much more confident after getting her expert advice!
Product-wise, I was most impressed with the Pond’s Institute Eye Contour, RRP £7.99 and the Hydro-Nourishing Cream (for normal to dry skin) £4.07.
Great price, effective product. That’s all we’re asking for, right ladies?
