The Skin has its own cycle of renewal and rejuvenation and it is at its peak at night. So, a skin care regimen before sleeping at night is imperative for the skin. Regular cleansing, toning and moisturizing at night before sleeping is the key to a healthy skin, though the products have to be chosen as per one’s skin type. I advise all women over 25 to include a night cream in her beauty regimen, it helps the skin regenerate and pucker up after a hard day. Also, it helps in moisture replenishment and regeneration of new cells.
Today, I am going to review a night cream from Jovees, which I have been using for past four months.
The Look: White cream, somewhat stiff. I would have preferred it more creamier and little bit soft in texture. It is very stiff and is hard to blend it into the skin.
The Smell: Nice herbal smell , gentle and soothing.
My Take: I use it daily at night before retiring to bed, after cleansing and toning. The cream is somewhat stiff in texture, and requires some time to sink into the skin, after being absorbed, the skin feels soft, moist and the effect lasts till morning. It does the job of moisturizing effectively and did not cause any breakouts on me.
Summary: Overall a decent night cream. It should suit normal to dry skin types. Oily skinned women should stay away from it, as it might cause clogged pores. If you want a good moisturizing night cream , then go for it.
Product Score: 3.5/5
Price: INR 195 for 50 gms
Swami Ramdev has revolutionized the Indian Consumer market by making holistic, Indian made consumer goods which provide optimum combination of price and quality. I also prefer buying most other things such as detergent powder and soap, daliya, masalas, salt, toothpaste etc from his outlet.
Today I am reviewing a very good product “Patanjali aloevera gel”, which I have been using as a all purpose gel since last two years. Patanjali claims its good for the well being of the skin and is effective on marks on the face. True to its claims, It helps in evening out the skin tone to a great extent and also helps soothe pimples and with regular use their occurrence reduces.
Some positive aspects of this gel :
- Acts on pimples to soothe and reduce their occurrence
- Gently evens out skin tone with regular use
- Helpful in soothing burns and lightens burn marks
- Hydrates the skin, oily skinned people can use it as a moisturizer
- Keeps the skin healthy without any side effects.
- Acts a good after shave moisturizer
How I use it:
I use this gel daily in the morning and night after washing my face , then follow up with moisturizer after half an hour. If you are experiencing break outs, apply layer and leave it as it is overnight. Some more ways to use this:
- Mix it with honey and leave it as face pack and wash off after 20 mins
- Apply on the hair as a gel hair pack, wash it after one hour, the hair becomes soft and shiny.
- I used it with Meera herbal wash and it makes the hair soft and shiny. I do not like the effect which Meera hair wash gives when used as it, it makes my hair puffy and gritty
Price: Rs. 75
Summary: Highly recommended! Much better than other costlier versions available in the market.

The climate here in Bangalore tends to be dry with very low humidity, So at times I need a quenching moisturizer in spite of having oily-combination skin. This was actually recommended to my baby by his doctor about two years back 🙂 . I thought of trying it out and have been using it before sleeping from time to time as per my urge to moisturize
It a moisturizing cream with aloe vera ext. being the key ingredient. I have been using it for quite sometime now, it effectively moisturizes my skin and when I wake up in the morning, my skin feels hydrated and soft. Also, it never broke me out. It doesn’t clog the pores and also does not make the skin oily or sticky. Also its good for dry skinned people, though it might not as moisturizing as Cetaphil cream, the review of which is coming up soon :). I also used it as a body moisturizer for my baby and its definitely better than J&J cream. It keeps the baby’s skin soft and hydrated.
This is how it looks after massaging
Price: I think INR 120 for 50 ml, it was on the outer carton which I threw away 😛
Summary: Good moisturizer, suits my oily skin and never broke me out. Also it does not clog the pores or makes skin sticky/oily. Also, ideal for babies. I did not find any cons except that it has dimethicone, a silicone oil and parabens.
