Be Talk: Jovees Wheatgerm with Vitamin E Face Massage Cream


Be Talk: Jovees Wheatgerm with Vitamin E Face Massage Cream

Brand Name: Jovees

Type: Massage Cream

Quantity: 50gm/90gm

Price:  INR 195/285


I saw my mom getting a a facial message every fortnight-and used to whine-I want that too!!! Well Mom dint allow me to get a massage until I was 20-as she says facial toning is neither required nor good in the teen ages when one has a naturally glowing and supple skin. So after 20, I got my first facial massage session. Although it depends much on the stokes of the masseur  (Does anyone know the English word for a female who does the massage?? )-the massage cream matters to a large extent on delivering the desired results. Having quite a break out prone skin-I have to be careful to select massage creams so that they don’t add to my woes. I bought the Jovees Wheatgerm Massage cream on the suggestions of an SA and is using it for the last two years.


What the Jovees Website says:


 Me Talk:

Well-I am on the whole happy with this massage cream. The cream is very thick-with a strong smell-which some may not like-but I am fine with it. The best part is that it never broke me out. It renders the skin supple and fresh after about 15 minutes of massaging. For the full face and neck area-1 table spoon of cream is enough-which means that this 50gm tub last till about 4-5 uses. The pricing is reasonable to the quantity-and it delivers what it claims-it really leaves a youthful glow on the visage-which lasts for the next few days. I suggest once a fortnight massage routine is good-so buying the 90gm pack is more economical



Pro-Side:

1) Leaves the skin looking youthful glowing and supple after 10-15 minutes of massage
2) Didn’t break me out. Although I have combination and break out prone skin-and this cream is meant for dry skin. In fact this cream provides the correct moisturisation to some dry areas on my face but doesn't mess around by clogging pores and giving me pimples :D
3)Economical and reasonable pricing considering the quality and quantity

Down-Side:

1)The smell could have been milder
2)Availability is an issue at some places-however Big Bazaars always have a Jovees Store
3)I wish it came with a spatula to take the cream out-it’s a messy thing to dip fingers in the tub
4) I don’t know if it would be good for mature skin-there is nothing mentioned on the packaging

Recommendation: 80%

  13. I really want to know, in india, consumer are really aware about safety issue?

  14. To me, it looks like that, consumer only concern about good feeling and result of the product- doest not matter how many dangerous cancer causing chemical into it. please spread the word and educate consumer. I am a scientist in this area, if you need clarification, can write to me at sanjaynagarka@gmail.com
