We all simply hate breakouts and especially if you aren’t used to acne and one fine day a bad bout of acne hits your face you tend to freak out more! I don’t experience acne breakouts but then when I do I try each and everything that says acne free or pimple reduction so it goes without saying that when I saw the Ponds Leave On Expert Clearing Gel I had to simply try it out for making the acne disappear. Let’s see though if it was able to live up to my expectations or not!

Ponds Leave on Expert Clearing Gel

Price and Quantity

INR 99 for 20gm

How to Use

For acne control, apply the gel onto all areas of your face that are prone to breakouts.

In case of contact with eyes, rinse with water immediately. Store away from direct sunlight and heat.

My Experience With Ponds Leave On Expert Clearing Gel


The gel comes in a small slim tube of 20gm so it’s really small and easy to carry around. The cap of the tube is the one that closes and opens with a twist so it’s securely held in place and there is no chance of any product spillage.

Texture and Consistency-

The product comes around in a very light texture and gel like consistency but looks milky white in color. On application, the gel doesn’t leave behind any residue and is lightweight in feel.


The product has a very faint aqua fragrance that cannot be offensive to anyone at all. I really had to sniff hard to describe the fragrance of this gel.

Ponds Leave on Expert Clearing Gel 4


I have normal skin type but I used this product when I had a bad bad breakout recently. I used this product once in the morning after my cleansing toning routine and once at night. The gel is more like a serum and is fast absorbing. Your skin simply drinks it up and there is no residue left behind. However, if you build the product and layer it then you might observe that the product will rub off and come out like a peel off mask. So my advice is to use a little amount and simply rub it till it disappears into the skin. You can easily put on any makeup or concealer or even your sunscreen after applying this gel because once absorbed into the skin it doesn’t leave behind any residue.

Now if I talk about the results for this product it did calm out my existing breakout. After using it for a couple of days I observed that the acne looked less red and had started settling down a bit but then again it doesn’t completely make them go away in three days. All it does is calm the acne till an extend.

Also, it doesn’t stop the new pimples from rearing their ugly heads up, but it does stop them in the midway and they clear up faster. After using this for three days I could see that the acne had calmed out but then again it didn’t completely go away.

Pros -
  1. Fast absorbing
  2. Convenient to use
  3. Lightweight feel
  4. Can be used under makeup
  5. No residue left behind after application
  6. Calms acne
  7. Reduces redness
  1. Doesn’t completely blacklist acne
  2. Doesn’t stop new ones from coming up
  3. Takes a bit long to act
Would I Repurchase and Recommend 

Well, it doesn’t exactly make them disappear but just reduces them up to some extent. I will recommend this to someone who wants to finish acne in the long run or maybe just reduce acne if not completely take them off! As for me one tube if suffice, will look for something more effective next time.

Rating- 3.5
