Hello lovely people! ❤❤❤
I hope you all are doing great! 🙂
Well, the season of mangoes, vacations and suntan is here… It’s summer already!
So, are you and your beauty stash summer ready? 😀
My biggest skin concern during the summer months is the uneven suntan that makes my skin look dull, dark and patchy… I had used quite a few, effective de-tanning skincare products in the past but I was really bored with them and wanted something new for a change!
That’s when I came across this de-tan face wash by Jovees in my mom’s cupboard…
I have been using it for quite some time now and today, I am going to review the same for you all! ❤

MY TAKE ON THE PRODUCT:
Jovees de-tan face wash comes in an orange-coloured plastic tube with a sturdy, transparent flip-cap… The packaging is really durable and it can bear a lot of pressure without leaking or rupturing. This makes it quite travel-friendly! ❤
The backside of the tube contains most of the details about the product, including the description, shelf life and price printed over it… However, the list of ingredients present is incomplete and that is something I really don’t appreciate!
The face wash is in the form of an orange-coloured gel of medium consistency… It feels slightly sticky and contains a decent amount of tiny plastic granules suspended in it…
The gel has a mild to moderately strong, pleasant fragrance… To me, it smells like one of those deodorising talcs for men, by AXE or Cinthol! I quite like the fragrance but people with sensitive noses may find it annoying! 😛
This face wash lathers quite well and just a pea-sized amount of the gel is enough for one use… It provides a mild, menthol-like cooling sensation as soon as I start massaging it on my face and the feel lasts for a couple of minutes! ❤
The plastic beads present in the lather are too few in number and do not exfoliate the skin much… However, if you have a lot of live acne on your face, you need to massage the gel with care, or the beads may hurt!
The face wash deeply cleanses the surface of the skin as well as the pores and removes all the dirt, dust and oil… It leaves the skin absolutely clean, calm and fresh!
Now, coming to the main point – detanning!
This face wash does remove the daily tan to a good extent, but the difference is most notable when it is used regularly…
It doesn’t remove the tan completely (unless the tan is mild), but it does remove the dullness and makes the face appear brighter post use!
Also, by daily tan, I mean to say the fresh tan that we acquire during a regular sunny day… If you have been to the beach and/or have tanned heavily, I don’t think that this face wash would help much! 😛
[P.S.: It has no effect whatsoever on old/matured tan.]
One thing that I didn’t like about this face wash is that it has a drying effect on the skin… My facial skin type is normal-combination right now and it makes my skin feel a little stretchy post use! So, in my opinion, this face wash is most suitable for normal to oily skin types and it may leave drier skin types excessively dry and stretchy!
The face wash doesn’t break out the skin or aggravate live acne and hence, people with acne-prone skin too can give it a try! 🙂
