South Africa’s favourite skincare brand, POND’S, today unveiled its partnership with iconic illustrator and street artist, Karabo “Poppy” Moletsane. Karabo designed one of her signature patterns as a limited-edition gift bag for the brand’s Pimple Clear Range, which pays homage to and is inspired by the youth of South Africa.
This collaboration is a celebration of the POND’S peeps – the youth of South Africa – and the creativity that stems from their passions.
“I am inspired by millennials’ immense bravery to forge new paths and challenge conventions,” said Karabo Poppy. “The design reflects South African youth’s ability to learn and an adapt to an ever-changing world.”
This limited-edition gift bag, currently available at all major retailers at a RSP of R99.99, contains a 400ml POND’S Pimple Clear Micellar Water and a 20ml POND’S Pimple Clear Leave-On Expert Clearing Gel. Dermatologically and ophthalmologically tested, and clinically proven to reduce pimples within 3 days, the POND’S Pimple Clear Micellar Water is formulated by The POND’S Institute. This Micellar Water is perfect for makeup removal, and safe to use on eyes, lips and the entire face. Infused with active Thymo-t technology the POND’S Pimple Clear Leave-On Expert Clearing Gel is clinically proven to reduce pimples, yet gentle enough to soothe skin and reduce redness.
“POND’S has proven over the years that it is a brand that listens to the needs of its consumers – not only through its product innovations, but also its collaborations with some of the top talent in South Africa and the world – and also has the capability to evolve with the times,” says Bawinile Kwela, Marketing Manager for Hair and Face Care – Unilever. “We are incredibly honoured and excited to bring tribute to the youth of our country, who are ultimately the future faces of POND’S, through this once in a lifetime collaboration.”
