My experience with the Pond’s Oil Control Talc

Pond’s Oil Control Talc is an awesome product. I sweat a lot in summers and this talc comes as a savior. The consistency of the talc is neither too soft nor too harsh. The fragrance is mild and won’t be a problem for sensitive noses. The talc can be used on face, under-arms, around neck. Hence, a multi function talc.

The staying power was pretty impressive with around 6 hours. I applied in the morning and after 6 hours; I still smelled like orange and was oil free. The oil controlling factor made it stand out from any other talcum powders. The talc gives a smooth matte finish look on the skin. Oily skin when exposed to sunlight tends to open pores and which ultimately leads to blackheads or whiteheads.

Excessive application of the talc on face may lead to white cast, which can be a big disaster. Use a small quantity of the powder and rub it evenly. The long ingredient list of the talcum powder made me wonder about its usage. The ingredient that bothered me the most was presence of Parabens. Leaving this con, it’s a great product from the Pond’s with added sun protection.


4.5/5 (only thing I didn’t like was the presence of parabens.)

Would I recommend the Pond’s Oil Control Talc?

Yes definitely! Pond’s is an international brand which promise to deliver excellent products with a pocket friendly range.
