Hope you all are well. While I am enjoying cool sea breeze amidst heavy downpour, I pray for the well being of people in Uttrakhand. Rains are playing havoc there. I hope the rescue operation starts very soon and till then every one stays safe and near to their family. My cousin who lives in Uttarkashi tells me how for the last few days they are surviving on mere salt, rice and a bit of other cereals. There is no fresh ration supply and I can totally imagine that. Ten years ago, we had made a trip to Kedarnath and Badrinath and during our journey, it started raining heavily. We took shelter in a shack and we had nothing to eat. There was one chai wala who kept making tea for everyone and we somehow could grab a few biscuits. People’s spirits deserve a salute though! How are you all doing by the way? I would wait to hear from you in the comments.
Today’s review is about a moisturizing cream from Jovees. I like Jovees. I am not sure how herbal it is but its products have usually impressed me. In fact, I don’t like Shahnaz’s Sha products, they have mostly been duds for me but Jovees has mostly worked for me. This cream has worked well too.
Jovees 24 Carat Gold Moisturiser contains pure gold leaves along with precious botanicals and essential oils, which helps to restore moisture balance to the skin and improve skin’s elasticity.
My Take on Jovees 24 Carat Gold Moisturizer:
I like the cream. I am quite happy with it. I bought it in the month of May and have been using it regularly for more than a month now. It is a moisturizing cream that can be used as a day as well as a night cream. The company advises to use it once a day, so I generally apply it during the day after shower.
As monsoon is getting ‘intense’ here, we have days when it feels a little cold and the breeze somehow dries the skin a bit. So, I wanted a cream that was not too heavy on the skin and could also provide the right moisturization without the need for a re-application.
Jovees 24 carat gold moisturizing cream does just that. It feels a little heavy for 2 minutes after the application but gets absorbed after that without leaving any trace of greasiness.
I can not comment upon the ‘improving skin’s elasticity’ claim per se but yes it has made my skin softer and smoother. With regular usage, my skin texture has improved and I find my skin more supple and softer.
Since it is quite moisturizing in nature, one needs a pea size to cover up the entire face and going by this, I can say that this tub would conveniently last many months. It has already been a month and you can see that the tub seems full, still.
It may not be too good for oily skin ladies as it is quite moisturizing. I have dry to normal skin type and it works just fine with me.
It has a mild fragrance which is good to smell though it does not last long. The packaging is sturdy. I wish it came in a smaller size as this one is too big to be finished.
Time for a critical analysis
Pros of Jovees 24 Carat Gold Moisturizer:
- Gives adequate moisturization.
- Ideal for weather like the current one which is not hot and not cold either.
- Does not feel heavy on the skin.
- Can be used as a night cream.
- One tub can last ages.
- Claims to have real gold leaves though I find it hard to believe unless they derived the gold properties chemically in which case it wouldn’t be herbal.
- Long term usage will soften and smoothen your skin.
Cons of Jovees 24 Carat Gold Moisturizer:
- Too heavy for summers and too light for winters; so its best suited for tropical climate.
- Tub can be a little heavy to carry.
Overall, it is a nice cream that provides adequate moisturization and improves skin texture over a period of time! I am happy with it
