Pond’s Superior Clean Challenge

I had the opportunity to take part in the Pond’s Superior Clean Challenge. The idea of the challenge is to try Ponds vs. another well known companies wet facial cloths. It was really interesting because I wasn’t sure of the outcome was going to be. I told my mom about the challenge and I thought it would be fun to have us both try them both out.

My mom decided it would be cool to do a blind test of the facial cloths. So she had me close my eyes and she gave me two facial cloths. This was the first time I saw either so I truly had no idea which was which. I would wipe one half of my face with one facial cloth and the other half with the other one. First I examined them for texture and thickness. Facial cloth A was thinner than facial cloth B. Facial Cloth A didn’t have the little diamonds that made them quilted like facial cloth B. Cloth B was textured and provided exfoliating. I smelled them both I preferred facial cloth A’s smell over facial Cloth B. Facial cloths didn’t smell bad it was just a more aromatic smell.

First I wiped my right side with facial cloth A. Facial cloth A was nice it was refreshing and it made my face feel clean. Then I used facial cloth B on my left side. Facial cloth was nice too it was more refreshing than facial cloth A and my face felt cleaner than facial cloth B. Then it happened…. The right side of my face started burning. It didn’t feel good. It felt horrible. I actually had to use facial cloth B to make it stop burning. So I told my mom I liked facial cloth B so much more than facial cloth A after she shared my experience with me. I asked her which was which and facial cloth A was the leading well known brand and facial cloth B was the Pond’s Wet Cleansing Towelettes.

During my moms test she wiped her face in the same way I did. She prefers the Pond’s facial cloths scent over the other brand. She used it to wipe off her makeup including her mascara. She said that the leading brands facial cloth did a pretty good job. She actually had higher expectations for the one that was the leading one because she has been using that brand for a long time. She was extremely surprised that the Pond’s Wet Cleansing Towelettes worked better. She had to use the Pond’s Wet Cleansing Towelettes to remove the mascara that the leading wet facial cloth left behind. I am sure she will now switch to Pond’s Wet Cleansing Towelettes.

It was a lot of fun to get to try out two different brands and compare them blindly. Most of the time you just have one brand and you just use it. You don’t realize the differences until you have them going “head to head” like I did. I highly recommend trying out different products by comparing them together. I really liked the Pond’s Wet Cleansing Towelettes because they are thicker, softer, and just plain clean better than the leading brand.
