Today, I’ll be reviewing a facial kit that my Mom used up just sometime back. I’m not yet allowed to use such facials yet, so I tried it on her. The review is based on her experience with the facial kit. Just for reference, my mom’s skin is slightly oily. Now, lets get started with the review of Jovees Fairness and Glow Mini Facial Kit.
My Mom’s Experience with Jovees Fairness and Glow Mini Facial Kit:
Packaging: This mini kit comes in a matte pink cardboard packaging which is covered with a plastic wrap. When you open the flaps, you can see the mini tubes of products. The case-thing is super cute and adorable. The mini inverted tubes have numbers on them indicating the step at which they should be used.
All the description is printed at the back side of the box as well as the back of each tube. The description includes what it is, key ingredients, when and how to use it. The packaging is very innovative and super handy. The tubes are full of products. And, with the numbering and mini descriptions on them, it is really very convenient to use them. The box packaging also has like sections to keep the tubes, which is also very convenient. Overall, I adore the packaging very much. Full marks to the matte pink case-like packaging.
The key ingredients are citrus and blackberry. The cleanser is pure white in colour and is light in texture. You feel refreshed when you use this cleanser. It cleans up the skin and adds some life to the dull skin. It has a sweet smell to it which is mild. It lingers for 2-3 minutes post usage. It washes off easily.
2. Facial Scrub:
Key ingredients are apricot and almond. The scrub is very similar to Garnier’s newly launched Apricot Exfoliating Scrub. The scrub is off white in colour and has very tiny brownish-pink walnut shell powder. The scrub works very well. It removes the gunk on the nose pretty well. It is a cream based scrub, so doesn’t dry out the skin. The texture is good and it smells like fresh ripe apricots. The fragrance is very mild and doesn’t linger. It made my mom’s skin very soft.
3. Face Massage Cream:
Key ingredients are wheatgerm with Vitamin E. The cream is very smooth and has consistency almost like whipped cream. It is very light. It applies very evenly on to the skin. It smells like roses and is mild. It is very easy to work with this cream. It did not dry out while I was massaging my mom’s face even with the fan on. After 10 minutes, I had to add a couple drops water to my palms, though. From this step onwards, you get to feel the difference on the skin. It turns really soft and smooth. My mom said she was really feeling pampered and refreshed after the massage!
4. Clay Pack:
Key ingredients are bearberry and liquorice. The clay pack is muddy coloured pack. You really don’t have to do anything, but just apply the pack and leave it on for 20 minutes. The texture is a wee bit thick. But, still it is easy to spread. You need a good amount of the product to cover up the face and neck area. The pack dries soon and freshens up the face. The clay pack smells like your regular multani mitti pack with a hint of rose water in it. Again, very mild fragrance that doesn’t linger.
5. Fairness Cream:
Key Ingredients are saffron and bearberry. This cream is the final step of our hour long facial session. Before I used this cream, I took a cotton ball, dipped it in cold rose water and just patted on my mom’s skin. Then, wiped it off with a clean cotton ball and then used this cream.
The cream is white in colour and if used a lot, it is quite difficult to get the white product to blend into the skin. It moisturises the face well. This step is just used to provide some moisture to the face. That’s it, apart from that it doesn’t really do anything to the skin. Oh and it makes you look a bit fairer too!

5 / 5
Yes. I recommend it to all you lovely people. Once in a month, you can surely pamper yourself with such cute facials. This one is very affordable and easy to follow. You don’t need to go to the parlour and spend hundreds of rupees on a facial when you can use this at your very home.
