My Review of Jovees Shea Butter Moisturizer with Fruit Extracts:
I am not an usual Jovees user, but this pack is quite attractive with Shea Butter and Fruit Extracts mentioned right on the front. The product comes in a tube with a transparent flip cap. The cap is not at all tight and does not close properly.
The back of the pack shows the product claim, directions of use and active ingredients quite clearly.
Directions of use are to wash face (preferably with Jovees Strawberry face wash) and apply the Jovees Shea Butter moisturizer all over face and neck. Leave on.
The product is white in color and is of a thick creamy consistency. This makes it slightly difficult to spread across the skin and needs some getting used to. It has a pleasant fragrance with a distinct fruity smell.
Soon after application, the skin feels a little oily. Though the visible oiliness soon disappears from the face, a hint of it still remains on the palms that were used to spread the cream. The face; however, retains a moisturized and nourished feel.
My skin is normal to dry and the result has been described above, but people with oily skin would do better to stay away from this product as the oiliness could prove overwhelming, even though the website mentions it as suitable for all skin types.
The complete ingredient list is not listed. The Active ingredients mentioned are: Shea Butter, Apple Juice, Grape Seed Oil, Sandal ext., Peach ext.
Pros of Jovees Shea Butter Moisturizer with Fruit Extracts:
1. Reasonably Priced.
2. Long Shelf Life.
3. Easy Availability.
4. Pleasant Fragrance.
5. Thick cream ensures no leakage.
6. Pleasant Fragrance.
7. Easily Absorbed into skin.
Cons of Jovees Shea Butter Moisturizer with Fruit Extracts:
1. Flip cap does not close tightly; not travel friendly.
2. Does not contain SPF.
3. Thickness of cream makes application difficult.
4. Definitely not for people with oily skin.
5. Palms stay greasy for a while.
Though my skin is not oily, this product didn’t actually work for me, (definite no-no for oily people). The oiliness that I encountered immediately on application was a big turn off, as was the fact that it didn’t have any SPF. The lid not closing properly was another major problem.
