Patanjali Divya Kantilep Review
This time I am going to review one of my favorite acne- combat packs. Having an acne prone combination skin, I always keep this with me. When all the other things fail (can’t stop myself from trying out all the new stuff available in the market :makeup: ) I always come back to this as my last rescue & this has always helped me.
I was going through the “shaclear skin clear anti pimple lotion” review by shivani yesterday and thought I should definitely share this amazing product with all of you. It’s really economical and works wonders. I have heard only nice things about it from all the people who have tried this. So I guess it should work for all of you, whatever skin type you may be.
Now coming back to the product.
Price: 30.00 for 50 gm (current price may vary)
Expiry: use before 12 months from date of manufacture.
What it claims:
It is useful in acne, vulgaris & maintains fairness of the skin.
Just reading these ingredients makes me feel so good. All natural. :haanji: but these are awfully long names to write so refer the picture for the ingredients :tongue:
Directions for use:
Nothing is mentioned on the pack. My mum has the patanjali-guide book where they have asked to mix it with rose water, apply on the face and neck & keep it for 3-4 hrs minimum.
The best way is to apply it at night and leave it on throughout the night. Then wash it in the morning. You can use it daily.
Yeah!!! For a face pack to leave it overnight it may sound odd but I’ve tried this and no doubt it works best that way. But it becomes a little messy in the morning. And the color doesn’t help too. It dries off easily but has a dirty brown colour, which when mixed with rose water looks exactly like mud. So unless you want to wake up to dirty, stained pillows, avoid this.
What I do is apply this when I have time and do my work with this on my face. Wash it after 45 minutes or may be 1 hr. And it works just fine. When I have severe acne I also apply it at night, just on my spots and go to sleep. This way it doesn’t stain my pillows.
It has a powder type texture like all those dry packs, but when mixed with rose water it feels like fine sand. So it works as a scrub too. All you have to do is rub it a little while washing and you are done. Immediately after application you‘ll feel the cooling effect it has on you skin. It doesn’t crack like some of the packs when dry. Your face may look a little yellow after washing; like you have applied turmeric pack :yikes: (must be because of the haldi & mehendi extracts :methinks:). So if you don’t like it then wash it off again with a face wash and it’s gone.
This is one of the reasons I apply it in the evening/night only, so that I don’t have to wash it again.
It has a very strong chamfer smell which I really like. You know that agarbati type smell we get in temples. I just love that smell. :love: It may be too strong for many people though!!!! Like my brother. He always makes such a face when I or my mum has this on. :yuck:
As far as the acne and pimples are concerned, it may take a week long time to start showing results (takes 2, 3 days on my skin O:) ). But ayurvedic products work that way only. So I guess that’s fine as long as it is working. About maintaining fairness, I would say it evens out your complexion but doesn’t make you fair.
Pros of Patanjali Divya Kantilep:
1. smells good (to me at least) :specs:
2. Works great on acnes and pimples.
3. With regular usage you can see the improvement in your skin tone and condition.
4. Lots of natural ingredients used.
5. Pretty cheap for the quantity.
6. Available at all patanjali stores or you can order it online too.
Cons of Patanjali Divya Kantilep:
1. Leaves your face a bit yellow. It’s the only con I could find with this. :haanji:
My rating 4.5 out of 5
Will I repurchase????
Definitely yes. I always keep it with me as a backup plan. So all the ladies who have a problematic skin should definitely give this a try, its all natural and really cheap. So even if it doesn’t work (which I seriously doubt) you don’t loose anything. :cheers:
