Jovees Veg Peel Pack – Review

I have been honoured as the brand ambassador of Jovees (yes Jovees, of all the brands that we have) by Cali and I am proud to present before you, so ladies and the only one gentleman (who comments kabhi kabhi) hold your breath … Jovees Veg Peel Pack. Lol, ok I snap out of my ‘drama queen’ mode and get serious.

I got this pack, why?? Because I had a LOT of acne scars and blemishes on my cheeks, A LOT. The SA was hell bent on selling this to me. She was over enthusiastic and went to the extent of not only promising me ‘money back guarantee’ but also returning my conveyance expenses if this didn’t work. And I seriously could do anything then to get rid of those scars. I bought it and also the cucumber toner to use with it since it is explicitly mentioned to use with that only.

Jovees Veg Peel Pack

A round white plastic tub didn’t seem that impressive but anything for scar free skin. I opened it and the pack was in a zip lock bag with the brand name stamped all over it. The quantity is good, will last really long. The smell was over powering, really chalky and dusty.

Jovees Veg Peel Pack

What the company says – This product is extremely useful to minimize scars (caused by acne, pimples, burns, tanning and pigmentation) and helps removes black heads, dead epithelial cells and brings glow to the skin. Use twice a week for optimum results.
Active Ingredients – Almond Powder, Henna Powder, Yeast Powder, Wheat Grain.
Method Of Use – Clean face preferably with Jovees Citrus Cleansing Milk. Make a thin paste of Veg Peel powder using rose or cucumber toner. Apply all over face and neck. Gently massage for 3-4 minutes. Leave on for 10 minutes. Pour a few drops of Jovees Rose or Cucumber toner on the skin through a cotton swab dipped in the toner. Gently massage the skin with finger tips using upward and outward strokes for 2-3 minutes. Then wash face with plain water. Apply a light moisturiser, preferably Jovees white water lily moisturiser.
Price – Rs.155 for 100 grams. But since you will have to purchase the toner, lets include that cost too, so 155+105 makes it Rs. 260/- .
Before moving ahead with the review let’s see the pictures so that you will know what I am talking about.

This is how the pack looks; you can strain your eyes to see the tiny granules in it.

As per instructed I mix with Jovees cucumber toner.

The pack takes a long time to mix up with the toner and usually lumps are formed like this and you have to stir stir stir.

Jovees Veg Peel Pack
My advice on Usage - The method of use mentioned on the tub is quite cumbersome. What I do is I skip the second time massaging part (before washing off).I apply, massage, leave on for 10 minutes and just lightly massage with water for a few seconds before washing off. This way it saves me the toner and also avoids the danger of over scrubbing. Also while massaging it is necessary to have a light hand as the granules are quite harsh and it may cause further problems. When the pack dries on face it feels really stretchy so it is best not to leave on for long. There can be a little falloff of the product while massaging and also when it dries, so it is best to apply it in front of a wash basin.

My experience – THIS PRODUCT WORKS! Yes, it works and works amazingly well. I had read somewhere that it is best to use anti marks/scars solution rigorously initially and then lessen the frequency of use as and when it starts showing results. So for three days I applied this pack daily before bed time. On the fourth day, my skin was visibly clearer with scars reduced by almost 40%.After that I skipped using it for 2 days(to make up for the overdose) and then put it the pattern of thrice a week because my scarring is always severe. I have been this pack for two months now, although I skipped in the middle because I had acne and according to the best to my knowledge it is best not to fiddle with acne struck skin. All my old scars gone, disappeared and I just have a few scars of the recent acne attack, which I am sure will be gone with the help of this. I can safely say that this totally lives up to its claims and is definitely worth a shot if you have scarred skin.

The only issue I have with this is that it is quite harsh, as in the scrubbing part, so sensitive skin people should stay away. You can use it as a normal ‘apply and wash off’ pack because this MIGHT backfire.

Pros of Jovees Veg Peel Pack

  • It lives up to its claims, a very efficient product to remove scars.
  • It is cheap, even when the cost of toner is added. So it really wouldn’t hurt if it doesn’t suit you.
  • A very little is needed, so one tub will go a long way.
  • Does the work of a scrub also. So thrice a week you scrub and treat scars all in one.
  • Does work with blackheads
  • Gives you clear skin (comparably) within a short period of use.

Cons of Jovees Veg Peel Pack

  • It is used to be used with Jovees toner. A big drawback because you have to purchase the toner on its own and the toner gets over very quickly as the pack uses a large amount of it to become a paste.
  • The pathetic smell of the toner and the smell of the pack combine to give a very fake chalky kind smell. (I am bad at describing fragrances).
  • You have to moisturise after this, leaves the skin stretched.
  • I don’t think it can be used by people with sensitive skin.
  • The pack takes a long time to mix; you have to go on and on stirring to make a paste. The powder tends to fly out here and there while stirring, so quite a messy thing it is.

Whatever the case, it has worked on my scars and I totally love it.

Will I repurchase? – I will do whatever it takes to make sure that I don’t have pimples , if I succeed in that , then I won’t purchase :D :D :D Else YES!! :(

Rating – :-* :-* :-* + 0.5(One point docked for the toner add on and messy part and half point for it not being suitable for sensitive skin (in my opinion, nothing is mentioned as such)

wow one product that can give results so quickly for scarring .. 40% visible results is a must for me :)

one question can i use it directly with plain rose water ? i use fresh aloe vera at home anyways.. also i hate companies trying to endorse their own products with one another… :P would it reduce the efficacy of the product ?

Reply

naina January 31, 2011 at 9:39 pm

i dunno , even i hate the whole thing of trying to increase sales by such stupid gimmicks :spank: :spank: .. but why take a chance, if it is mentioned you might as well as use it that way , given that the toner is not very expensive.:))

Hey everybody! I’ve been using Jovees veg peel for the past 3 weeks now. I have combination skin with an occasional pimple or two. I had clear skin till 3 years ago when my skin broke out after using some moisturizer on my face. It left behind some bad pigmentation and scars. I didn’t take care of my skin after that and it only got worse.
Last month I bought Jovees veg peel and cucumber toner after reading the review here. The initial 3 applications, my skin broke out. I suspected it was due to the toner and started using it with a combination of fresh lemon juice and rose water (Dabur). My skin didn’t break out like earlier; but lemon dried out my skin. So I used it only with rose water and there is now a visible difference. Nothing drastic or miraculous. But yes, there is a visible effect!
For those who are looking to buy this product, I would suggest buy the veg peel minus the cucumber toner. Try the veg peel with rose water. If it doesn’t yield any result, then go ahead and try it with the cucumber toner.
