POND’S INSTITUTE MANILA


20 YEARS OF FLAWLESS RADIANT SKIN

In celebration of its 20th anniversary, Pond’s brings to the Philippines the Pond’s Institute. The Pond’s Institute solidifies the brand’s authority in skin care. The institute is a hub that can be found in New York, Madrid, Tokyo, and just recently, Shanghai. It offers skin analysis services and expert skin care advice.

Less than a few minutes ago, Pond’s opened its first Pond’s Institute at the Atrium of Mall of Asia and I was there to witness it all!

Let me share with you Instagram photos from the event:

They asked me to like their page and I get to pick-a-prize! I got a gold bag.

I tried their skin analysis machine and found out that I have just a few large pores and spots but medium fine lines. Yikes! Need to drown in gold radiance serum now!

My favorite part of the program was when they showed the TV ads of Pond’s from way back till the present. My favorite was Kelly Misa‘s “she’s beautiful but is she smart?” commercial. Her future mother-in-law was questioning her intelligence and then she started to answer back in Spanish too! Witty! It sends the message that being smart is beautiful!

The event ended with a tour around the Institute which customers like me and you can check-out for free!
