Whether it’s summers or winters, sun always finds its way to send to us, the much ‘not needed’ scorching heat rays. Today, I am reviewing Jovees Fairness and Sunscreen Lotion. Vitamin D is needed in a proficient quantity by our body. Due to the depleting atmosphere it becomes necessary to protect our delicate skin from the UVA and UVB rays. So, you can skip on the moisturizer or miss putting the lip balm, but make sure sunscreen is among your daily essentials that you put without forgetting, just as I do.
I have tried various sunscreens with different SPFs but “Jovees Fairness Lotion with SPF25” intrigued me because of the major reason that it’s a fairness lotion cum sunscreen. I mean, who doesn’t need such a combo in this world of enormous cosmetics. It only saves one more cosmetic from going on our skins.
205 INR. The product is available at Flipkart.com at a price of 185 INR.
100 ML (Also available in a bottle of 200 ML)
Jovees Fairness and Sunscreen Lotion comes in a long, white opaque bottle that’s quite sturdy. It has a pump dispenser which releases a little quantity in one pump. The transparent bottle cap is cute and convenient, however, make sure you don’t lose it as it is small and light weight. The back of the product has all the usage guide e.g. Method of Use, Active Ingredients, customer care no., mfg and expiry dates. Overall, the packaging is hygenic and handy.
Its main ingredient is Liquorice extract which is shown in the picture below which gives this lotion its fairness abilities. It has other ingredients e.g. aloe vera, Chamomile extract, carrot extract, sandal extract.
CONSISTENCY AND TEXTURE
It is white in color with a creamy consistency. Unlike other lotions, its not runny and is quite dense.
I bought Jovees Fairness and Sunscreen Lotion from a local convenience store as the salesman convinced me that it was a good product which I should try. Its been over a month that I have been using this product. I use it daily after washing my face. I pump it thrice to take out enough lotion for my face which I then apply using my hands in concentric circles on my cheeks, forehead, upper lip and chin and then even it out. It gives my cheeks a glossy finish and as promised this product does make me look a bit fairer (about 0.5 tone fairer). It has a very strong scent which is a drawback but after a while, in about 2-3 minutes after application, the scent fades away. It has average sun protection depending on the intensity of the sun that day. It does make my skin a little oily on areas like my nose and chin but its not so much to worry about as a few blots, once or twice a day makes it manageable. It has a long stay so in that aspect its better than other sunscreens. Overall, it’s a nice product for those who don’t have oily skin and the one’s who need average sun protection.
