Packaging and Appearance

The moisturizer comes in a basic plastic light blue coloured small tub which is justified according to the price. The packaging is sleek, sturdy and travel-friendly. The only thing I don’t like about the packaging is that it takes some effort to close it. Once you open the product it has a thin silver foil which you have to peel to use the product. The moisturizer tub mentions the complete list of ingredients and also other details of the product. It is a super light-weight gel-based texture which absorbs like magic into the skin without feeling oily or greasy.

My Experience with the Ponds Super Light Gel Oil Free Moisturiser

The moisturizer provides a cooling effect on the skin with a subtle fragrance which is good for those who are sensitive to strong fragrances. It has the goodness of  Hyaluronic acid and Vitamin  E which help boost collagen and gives a smoother, fresher and more revitalized youthful complexion. This product is going to be a boon for all the oily skin beauties. It also delays the process of secreting oil on the face for good 5-6 hours. It is a dupe of one of the most raved Neutrogena hydro boost water gel in terms of colour and texture but the Neutrogena one is a lot more moisturizing and its texture is not greasy nor light but the Ponds one is more light. I have oily skin and the Ponds moisturizer works well. It is a good option for people with combination skin which is more towards oily but for people with combination skin which is more towards dry the Ponds one will not provide enough moisturization during winters. It is a very good moisturizer considering the price of the product.  As the duping is concerned, Ponds has done a great job but the Neutrogena one has something extra to it. The Neutrogena one provides more hydration than the Ponds one which is extremely light-weight thus making it a good option for oily skin people. Ponds moisturizer is a good option during the summer season while the Neutrogena one will work great in winter. Overall, I really like this moisturizer and would highly recommend it for all skin types.
