We'll start on the less intense end of the cold spectrum with this throwback classic. Cold cream was a popular choice in the early 20th century, and it is exactly what it sounds like: a cream that feels cold! Pond's makes one of the best known of these vintage skin beautifiers. The formula can be used as a makeup remover with the benefit of serious skin-softening powers. To use, take a generous scoop of the cream, massage it into your skin, then use a damp washcloth to wipe away excess. Goodbye, waterproof mascara; hello, smooth and silky skin.
