Generally cleansing milks and lotions do not work so well for my oily skin, and most of them are mostly targeted towards dry skin. I do love cleansing oils for removing makeup but they are more preferred to remove long wearing and heavy makeup, I was looking for a lightweight cleansing lotion for every day. After having good experience with the foot cream from the brand I picked this cleansing lotion specially meant for oily skin also since it contained many natural ingredients I have been using it since around a month now and here’s what I think about it.
An Ayurveda formulation developed specially for oily skin using high quality herbal extracts that have properties to provide effective cleansing, balance oil production, remove excess oil without leaving skin dry. It also helps prevent acne, blemishes from developing, helps improve skin tone.
Apply all over face, neck. Massage gently for 2-3 minutes with finger tips using circular strokes. Remove with moist cotton or rinse thoroughly with water.
Rs 215 for 100 ml
My Experience with Jovees Lemongrass & Lavender Cleansing Lotion for Oily Skin:
As I said before I have not tried a lot of cleansing milks and lotions so far, but the two or three I have tried were a bit too moisturizing and oily for my skin type, this one on the contrary is quite good. The lotion comes in a medium white bottle with small pump dispenser secured in a transparent cap, packaging is not the best for travelling but quite sturdy overall. The white lotion inside has a thin sliightlyrunny consistency almost like a cleansing milk and has a mild lavender fragrance to it. It blends easily and feels lightweight andnon-greasy upon application.
I generally require 2 to 3 pumps to remove the makeup depending on the kind of products I have used. It spreads very easily; I massage it over dry face for a minute or two and then remove it off with a damp cotton pad. It removes all sorts of dirt and makeup including concealers, foundations, bb creams, etc. It does take a while to remove Maybelline gel eyeliner and waterproof mascara completely and I have to massage it a bit more over my eyes for 2-3 minutes to make sure everything comes off but eventually all the last traces come off.
It is safe enough to be used around the eye area and does not cause any major stringing, But I do not prefer using it around the eye area and stick to a separate eye and lip makeup remover for that, this one does a fantastic job of removing any form of face makeup and I did the toner test with it and there was no makeup or dirt left behind. It does not leave my skin feeling dry or leave behind any residue as well making it perfect for oily skin types although I always go over with a cleanser after using it. All in all it is a really good gentle cleaning lotion for oily skin and did not cause any irritations or breakouts on my skin with regular use and removes any kind of light or heavy makeup on the face.

Cons of Jovees Lemongrass & Lavender Cleansing Lotion for Oily Skin:

Do I recommend Jovees Lemongrass & Lavender Cleansing Lotion for Oily Skin?
It is a good cleansing lotion for the face and perfect for oily skin butI would not recommend using it for the eyes to remove eyeliners specially since it takes a bit of efforts to take them off completely.
