Are you the face of POND’s?

Have you always dreamed about working alongside the number one skincare brand in the world? Would you like your name to feature alongside the likes of Thembi Seete, Ayanda Thabethe, Melody Molale and Nosipho Mhlanga? Are you a South African citizen with a valid ID document? Then POND’S widely-publicised and much-anticipated Faces of POND’S 2019 competition is just for you!

POND’S is once again giving a young South African woman the chance to become the face of the brand, joining the league of incredible women who currently represent the various ranges within the POND’S stable. Winning this prestigious competition will not only give the winner the much sought-after title, but this year’s prize pool also includes a modelling portfolio and a generous cash prize.

“POND’S has been a champion for South African women of all ages for many generations. With a rich history that spans over 170 years, the brand has carefully created and crafted product ranges which cater to a wide variety of skin types and needs,” says Sphelele Mjadu, Senior PR Lead for Africa, Unilever Beauty and Personal Care. “As a brand, we see it as an honour and a privilege to once again make the dreams of one lucky woman come true through our nationwide Faces of POND’S search. South Africa is so rich with naturally beautiful women, and POND’S wants to celebrate them.”

The competition, open to all women of South Africa, kicks off on 16 April 2019  and will end at midnight on 30 June 2019. There will be a thorough selection process, and the top 10 finalists will be selected by a panel of judges – a group of leading women from the industry – alongside the brand team to compete for the ultimate prize. Voting will then be opened to the public, who will select one winner from the top 10 from the 15th until the 31st of July. The POND’S brand will make the official announcement of the new Face of POND’S on the 8th of August during a prestigious event.

The new Face of POND’S will win prizes to the value of R100 000:

  • Feature in the Face of POND’S Campaign 2019 as the Face of POND’S Lasting Oil Control
  • Be featured on a product sleeve for a year and marketing material with their picture from mid-August 2019
  • Receive a cash prize
  • Exclusivity to POND’S events in 2019
  • A modelling portfolio

“This campaign allows us to dive into the rich talent pool that South Africa has to offer, and unearth the kind of beauty that the people of our country can relate to,” concludes Mjadu. “POND’S prides itself on being a brand that stays locally relevant while supporting local talent – and the Faces of POND’S campaign fully supports and is testament to this movement.”
