Hope everyone is doing great! The product I would be reviewing today is “Patanjali Herbal Kajal”.
A safe and unique ointment formulation. Its special combination of precious herbs,vegetable oils and waxes helps to maintain and improve vision.
My experience with Patanjali Herbal Kajal:
I end up buying some or the other product by Patanjali Ayurveda every few days! The fact that all products are so pocket-friendly, and none have ever caused any adverse effects on my skin, is an added bonus. Actually, products by Patanjali are the only herbal ones that have actually worked for me. I used to prefer using ingredients directly from the kitchen rather than trusting any herbal products… Until now! I have used Lotus Herbals Kajal and love it! But now, I have started liking this kajal more. Read on to find out the reason!
This product comes in a ‘black base, transparent cap’ twist up bullet packaging. The cap shuts with a click, making it very travel friendly. There are no other details mentioned on the actual bullet. All details (ingredients, directions of use etc.) have been mentioned on the surrounding cardboard package.One thing that I really love about this kajal is the smell! So pure, mild and herbal! It totally reminded me of the kajal that my grandma uses. It smells and feels like authentic kajal.
The color is deep black. Same as Lotus or Himalaya kajals. The texture is smooth. While applying on the waterline, it feels really very smooth and about 3 strokes give a nice subtle look to the eyes. I tried applying this on the lower lash line; it did not feel buttery smooth, but smooth enough. It did not sting or irritate my eyes. In fact, eyes feel a little cooler, calmer on using this (probably because of camphor). It is very easy to apply;no tugging and pulling required! It settles down to a semi-matte finish. While trying to apply this on the upper lash line, I had to tug and pull a bit. Somehow, it just did not look neat enough (a little crumbly) and I was just not able to draw a thin neat line. So, I simply use this on the waterline, lower lash line and even tightline my eyes with this. Tightlining really makes lashes look so much thicker and longer!
Coming to the staying power of this kajal;on the waterline, it stays for about 3 hours (decent saying power for a kajal and a product that costs 90 bucks!) and does not budge at all!! When used on the lower lash line, it stays on for more than 6 hours, though it fades a little and smudges a wee bit. The only precaution to be taken while doing so is that one should apply a very thin line. This way, it won’t smudge much. If a thick line is drawn, it will definitely smear and smudge. Some of my friends had bought this and they dread using this product!!! It gave them racoon eyes in no time! Somehow, it stays really well on my eyes (though they water a lot and I live in a humid climate). In fact, on my lower lash line, the performance is comparable to any good waterproof eyeliner, with very minor smudging.
Pros of Patanjali Herbal Kajal:
• Natural ingredients.
• Deep black shade.
• Though best suited for use on waterline, it works well on lower lash line and for tightlining as well.
• Smooth application (not so much on the upper lash line though).
• Sturdy, travel friendly packaging.
• Smells great – just like pure, 100% natural kajal.
• Does not cause any irritation to the eyes.
• Decent staying power.
• Easy to remove.
Cons of Patanjali Herbal Kajal:
• Drawing a very thick line causes smudging and smearing.
• Does not work too well on the upper lash line.
Verdict on Patanjali Herbal Kajal:
I really like this kajal! I have been using it every day since I bought it. However, as I mentioned earlier, some of my friends really don’t like this one as it smeared a lot when they used it. But on me, it worked well! Since it is so inexpensive anyway, I would say, give it a try. It might just work for you.
