NEW Patanjali Saundarya Aloe Vera Gel KESAR CHANDAN Review

Aloe-Vera has many beauty uses. It is a holy grail product for the skin no matter what skin type you have, be it oily, dry or combination. To know the beauty uses of aloe-vera, click here. Natural aloe-vera from the plant is amazing but, it is not easily available everywhere. Also, it can get a little messy in the process of extracting the gel. Hence, the store-bought aloevera gel comes to our aid. We are all familiar with the good old Patanjali Aloe-Vera Gel. But, for those beauties, who want something extra with their plain aloe-vera, here comes the NEW Patanjali Saundarya Aloe Vera Gel KESAR CHANDAN. It is a new product launched by Patanjali which also has the goodness of some saffron and sandal with aloe-vera. To see a comparision between the 2 types of Aloe-Vera gels by Patanjali, click here.img_0845

Ingredients :

  • Aloe Vera 89%
  • Kesar 0.01%
  • Chandan 0.10%
  • Base Material – Vitamin E, Permitted colour and Sugandhit dravya Q.S.

Price :

Rs. 50 for 60 ml

My experience :

It is a golden yellow colored gel having a smell of sandalwood. Though I personally like the smell, I feel its a little artificial and may be too strong for people with a sensitive nose. But, the smell vanishes within a couple of mins of use.  The tube is very sturdy and comes with a flip open cap. On application it gives a nice cooling sensation, and within a few minutes it gets absorbed into the skin. It is  hydrating but doesn’t make my skin more oily. Though, people with dry skin need to use a moisturizer along with to combat the dryness.  It also gives a slightly yellow undertone after getting blend into the skin which complements most of the Indian skintones.

It claims to give pimple free, wrinkle free glowing skin and an instant glow. It doesn’t cause any breakouts and also helps in getting rid of the acne and acne scars gradually. I can’t comment on the wrinkles as I haven’t got any but aloe-vera is known to help prevent wrinkles. The glow on the skin is not as ‘instant’ as it claims but it does after 1-2 weeks of regular use.

So, friends, if you have used this product then please let me know in the comment section below about your experience. Also, if you want me to review any other product or any homemade diy then please let me know in the comments. I shall try doing it in my future blog posts.

My experience :

It is a green colored gel having a pleasant smell. The tube is very sturdy and comes with a flip open cap. I like using this on my face once or twice every day. On application it gives a nice cooling sensation, and within a few minutes it gets absorbed into the skin. It is  hydrating but doesn’t make my skin more oily. I have oily skin and sensitive skin and I absolutely love this product. Though, I think dry skinned beauties would also need a moisturizer alongwith this. My face looks smoother and even the texture of my skin feels improved after application. It also works on open pores.

Apart from my face, I also use it on my hairs as a heat protectant and as an ingredient in my hair spas. To know my hair spa recipe, click here. I also use it to sooth my skin after waxing/shaving.

10 Beauty Benefits of Aloe Vera

Hi friends,

Hope you have been doing good. As you might have noticed, I have changed my blogging schedule from weekends to mid-weeks now as I shall be making a video on YouTube in the weekends. In today’s post I shall write on a miraculous plant that is aloe vera.  We all know that aloe vera is one of the most amazing plants ever which has numerous health and beauty benefits. To know the various beauty benefits of aloe vera, keep reading.IMG_20160928_145508.jpg

1. As a daily skin treatment. Apply aloe vera juice to your face and neck just like you would with any skin serum to keep the early signs of aging at bay.

2. To face away acne scars. If you have scars left from acne, apply aloe vera mixed with some lemon juice on it everyday to see them lightening gradually.

3. To keep that oily skin away. If you have a terribly oily skin like me, apply aloe vera just before applying your daily skin care products/cosmetics to reduce the oil secretion throughout the day

4. To gently moisturize the skin. Aloe vera is a natural humectant. Add a few drops of baby oil to aloe vera and use as a natural moisturizer.

5. To tame down the frizz. Apply some aloe vera to the ends of your hair after wash to tame down those unruly frizz.

6. As a heat protectant. Before using any hair styling tool like dryers, straightening irons, use aloe vera generously to protect your hair from the heat.

7. As a face toner. Aloe vera helps in minimizing the skin pores so it can be used as a natural skin toner on the face.

8. As an aftershave. Aloe vera is very soothing for the skin so it can be used post shaving or waxing when the skin turns out to be really sensitive.

9. On an itchy scalp. Just like skin, aloe vera is soothing for the scalp as well. So if you have an itchy and sensitive scalp or you face a dandruff problem, aloe vera can be a help.

10. On sunburns and stretch marks. Aloe vera has healing and inflamatory properties which can help in treating sunburns. Also, due to its healing properties, it can help the stretching tears on the skin due to rapid weight-gain or loss.

All natural home remedies take time and so does aloe vera. If, you are trying out any of the above remedies, be patient as well as consistent and you would soon see amazing results. Hope you liked this article. Do check out for more.

Stay beautiful!

Patanjali Body Ubtan Review

Hi friends !

Hope the weekend had been amazing for you guys. 🙂 So today I shall make a post which is very different from my previous 2 blog posts. It is about one of my favorite Patanjali products, i.e. Patanjali Body Ubtan. Now, most of my friends either love all Patanjali beauty products or they hate them. I have never seen any in-between. As per my take, I love some and I keep buying them again and again and I hate some products. This Body Ubtan happens to be one of my most loved products from Patanjali. 🙂

I always love trying new beauty products and one day when I saw this at a Patanjali outlet I thought I should give it a try as they are natural products and quite pocket friendly.

Ingredients :

• Chiraunji (Cuddapah Almond)
• Red Lentils
• Black gram
• Barley
• Mustard seeds
• Soybean
• Rice
• Almond
• Turmeric
• Camphor

Price :  Rs. 60 for 100g.

My experience :

It is a dry yellow colour powder as shown in the left pic. When mixed with water it forms a paste as shown in the right. It has a very soothing smell of camphor and turmeric which we can find in aroma-therapy spas.

I have dry skin and I mix it with rosewater and lemon juice and apply the paste. After keeping it for 5-10 mins, I massage it a little for the exfoliation to take place and then wash it off. If you have dry skin you can add a few drops of almond or olive oil to it. I have been applying it daily since the past few weeks and I have seen reduction in pigmentation marks on my face. Also, after I wash it off, it leaves my skin soft and smooth. It can be used as a daily body scrub and as its scrub particles are mild enough to be used on the face as well.

So, friends, if you have used this product then please let me know in the comment section below about your experience. Also, if you want me to review any other product or any homemade diy then please let me know in the comments. I shall try doing it in my future blog posts. If you like my post please share it with your friends.
