My experience with Jovees 24 Carat Mini Gold Facial Kit:

A couple of years go, i got a gold facial done at a parlour- and it gave me that ‘lit from within’ kind of immense glow ! But at the time, i had no clue on what type of conoction was put on my face, and neither did i bother to ask. Some time later I bought Jovees 24 Carat Mini Gold Facial Kit to do a self-gold facial at home hoping, that maybe i could mimic salon results!

The Jovees 24 Carat Mini Gold Facial Kit contains a cleanser, scrub, gel, moisturizer and pack in small plastic boxes of 15 g each. The way I do my facial with this product in the order of using cleanser first, then massage my face for about 10 minutes with the massaging cream, massage another 5 minutes with the  scrub, and then steam. After steaming, I remove the black and white heads with the black head remover tool.  I again massage my face for another 5 minutes with the gel. And then apply the face pack that comes along with this pack.

The gold cleanser is not a great product. It is very oily. When i wipe it off using cotton, I find only the product and not the dirt of my face  in the cotton. Cannot really make out if the dirt is removed. The face is very oily even after the cleanser is wiped with the cotton. No complaints on massaging cream, scrub and gel. After using the massaging cream, I find a wonderful glow to my face. The granules in the gold scrub are not very sharp. It gives a soft scrubbing feeling. The gel is very cooling, and an instantly fresh, cool feeling is felt on the face once the gel is applied!

The gold pack, again,  is not too great. It is like a gel. Takes a more time to dry if compared to any other packs. And, rinsing off this pack from the face is a big pain. It gets very slippery when face is watered and does not leave off the skin easily. I also  noticed the day I do a facial with this pack; my face gets  very very oily. Seems like an oil bottle and invariably the next day my skin breaks out. I do have sensitive skin, so if you are someone with skin like mine you do need to be careful about this.

I some how dislike the way Jovees packages their products- The plastic boxes are kind of  cheap and  couple of months after  I bought this kit, the box of the cleanser has a long crack and the cleanser has oozed out of it.

 

Recommendation:C

 

Price and quantity: Rs. 475 for mini kit which contains 15 gm pack of each of gold cleanser, scrub, gel, Moisturiser and pack.

Recommendation: The Jovees Gold Facial Kit did not really work out for my sensitive skin. I felt like my skin got way too oily, the days i used this and did not feel a significant difference in glow either. Rather i broke out the next day. Maybe a different skin type can try this out, but  if you have sensitive or oily skin, its better avoided!

Editors Note: Damnit, i thought i would buy one of these things – would be helpful in pre-bridal glow and all ! Ah, guess ill skip it now! Thanks CSP!

I’ve tried the citrus cleansing milk and it was quite good. So I was planning to get this facial kit but now I can safely skip it! Thanks for the great review!

Jovees products are very inconsistent in matters of offering results, some are very good while most are of no use …….the ones I found useful are papaya facial scrub and spf 25 suncreens and a few more….
