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 April 16 and will end at midnight on June 30.

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 July 15 until July 31.

The Pond’s brand will make the official announcement of the new Face of Pond’s on August 8 during a prestigious event.
