Product Description

Actual Product Pic:

Pigmentation & Color:

I bought the "Pretty Pink" one! Much like the Pond's one, although the powder is pink, it goes on pretty much clear (unless you apply too much of course, then it'll be WHITE! lol!):

Texture & Scent:

This powder is coarser than your usual face powder, but it does give a flawless finish once you apply it. This smells like baby powder, which is don't really like, but am ok with! :P


This powder comes in a bottle with a twist top cap like your usual talcum powder. I know alot of people complain about the packaging, but i happen to really like it because it's so travel friendly! :)

The dispensing holes:

Time Test:
This powder lasts about 4-5 hours on me before i need to reapply, which i felt was a little short! :(

Price & Availability:
This powder is priced at RM3.90 (approx. US$1.08), which is really affordable! This should be available at all Silkygirl counters at most Watson's / Guardian outlets! :)

I use this as a finishing powder. Click here for a step by step guide on how i apply this! :)

Possible Dupes:

This is straight out a dupe for the much raved about Pond's Magic Powder! lol!

From their names (Pretty Pink vs. Sweetie Pink), to their packaging, to even their price! :D

Unfortunately, this falls a little short of the aforementioned one. I find this a little harder to blend, plus this doesn't last as long. The most significant difference is the oil control properties... this one doesn't work as well as the Pond's one! :(

My $0.02:

I admit I'm a little biased against this powder from the very beginning, since i have tasted the goodness of the original Pond's one! I'm trying very hard to refrain from comparing this to the Pond's one for this review, but as you can tell, i failed. lol!!

Truth be told, this is actually not as bad as it sounds. On the face, it gives a very smooth appearance. It's a pity that it doesn't last long.

Here's a pic of me wearing this:

It looks quite smooth right? lol!!

All in all, i think this is an ok product that's worth a try and see (since it's so cheap!). Who knows, you may like it! :D

ps: For you girls who like a little bling in your powders, there is a TWINKLE version of this, which has pretty silver flecks in it! Methinks that this version is perfect for a night out dusted all over your body! :D Don't apply this on your face though... it's a little OTT for that... :P

  1. WOW! I saw this in the drugstore and was ogling at the price in disbelief--and was a little skeptical of the properties thep product claims to do.
    So, it doesn't clog up pores, cause pimples?
    Thanks for your tester's review. I am getting the Pond's powder. =)

  2. Hehehe... yeah the Pond's one is better! :D

    This doesn't clog my pores. I guess so as long as you remove it properly it should be alright! :)

  3. I used this too when my budget was quite low doe makeup products and I would say it is pretty okay for its low price. Since we cannot get the ponds here, I guess I just have to settle with this :)

  4. Cyndi: yeah... its definitely worth the RM3.90 it is! :)

    I really hope that the Pond's one will be available here!!

  5. owh your face is flawless.
    i might just give this a try
    but i really want the ponds one!!

  6. LyNn: ahaha thank you!! Like i said it's quite cranky though... :P

    i hope you do get the chance to try this one soon! :D

  7. I saw this too in the Pragin Mall, there are 3 colors available, green, pink & blue. I am so wanted to try since only RM3.90.. can i buy??..

  8. Eh, i bought mine from Prangin mall too!! hehehe!! :D

    Of course you can buy! lol!! Do let me know if you like it or not ya!! :D :D

  9. do you get more pimples if you use the pond's one or the pretty pink? Where u bought the pond's one? In Singapore?

  10. how you usually remove it so it doesnt clog your pores?

    Where I can buy this kind of face powder here in Mindanao? I'm looking it for almost 2 years ago. I have gone to Negros Oriental, in Manila,in Cagayan,in Iligan City & in Tagbilaran City but unfortunately, it's out of stock.
    Buti sana mayroong kapalit sa ponds pink blush para manatiling kompleto ang pagpasok ko sa opisina.
