Hello! my lovelies. I know I have taken the longest break but I couldn’t keep myself away for long. So here I am with a skin care post. I was sent a face mask almost 40 days back to try out by the brand Jovees. I have finished 1/3rd of the jar and can easily share my experience with you guys. So the product I am going to talk about is the Jovees Veg Oat peel.
About the brand Jovees:

Their journey started in September 2004 with 24 products. Today, JOVEES has in its portfolio 125 Skin, Hair and Body Care products spanning 175 SKUs, available at all leading stores across India.

You can read more about them here.
Coming to the product Jovees Veg Oat Peel:
Price: Rs.315 for 250g product and has a shelf life of 24 months. They also have a smaller version of 100g which retails for 175Rs. Affordable!
Availability: Easily available in beauty shops as well as online.
The active ingredients consist of Almond powder, Henna powder, Yeast powder & Wheat grain.
Almond: has nourishing properties, fights ageing, gives a glow and lightens the skin.
Henna: is a natural coolant for skin as it sucks out the heat. It also helps in soothing inflammation and healing wounds (acne scars) and reduces sunburn. It also lightens scars and blemishes (believed but not proved).
Yeast: has anti ageing, hydrating and brightening properties (No wonder Korean skin care is flooded with fermented ingredients)
Wheat grains (oats): is a natural cleanser, exfoliator, treats acne and lightens the skin.
Texture: This comes in a powder form which oats particle huge enough to notice. You can clearly see the gritty texture in the picture. It has a fragrance which has a hint of henna to it.
How I use: I mix the powder with rosewater and aloevera gel (sometimes add green tea as well), prepare a paste and apply it on cleansed skin avoiding the eye and lip area. I keep the paste on for around 5-7 minutes and then rinse it off followed by toner and further skincare steps.
Efficacy: This pack does feel like a nice detox for the skin, removes dead skin cells and brightens the complexion removing all the excess oils BUT the oat granules are way too big for my liking. I am no more a physical scrub person hence I can’t tolerate the excessive scrubbing effect that this mask gives. The first time I used the pack as it is and kept for full 10 minutes (as directed on the packaging) only to find that the mask had dried to an extent that it cannot be removed without scrubbing a lot. Since then I filter out the bigger granules of oats and apply the finely milled paste and keep it for 5-7 minutes so that it doesn’t dry like a rock and can be easily removed. (Basically, I skip the exfoliation part).
My verdict for Jovees Veg Oat Peel:
If you love physical scrubs then you’ll love this absolutely. This does brighten up the skin and removes all oil but if you have active acne then you’ll have to be very careful about those grainy oat particles. All in all, this is a nice face mask which can be applied once a week for giving your skin a nice detox. I gave this to my sister to try (before her engagement) and she loved it to bits as she is quite comfortable with physical scrubbing!
The only con I felt were those oats granules.
Tip: For a mask, always try it first at the back of your hand. By this, you’ll get an idea of how much it is going to become dry and how much effort is required for removing this. With this, you’ll be prepared about much your facial skin is going to be treated.
