I have tried the Patanjali kajal and here’s my review of the same :
About the product :
A safe and unique ointment formulation. Its special combination of precious herbs,vegetable oils and waxes helps to maintain and improve vision.
It is packaged in a retractable bullet made of plastic. The cap shuts tightly so it is travel friendly.
Price : INR 90
Quantity : 3gm
No smudge, no smear
Relaxes and soothes eyes
Castor oil, Almond oil, Amla, Harad, Baheda, Yashti madhu, Rasaut
My experience :
Provides a cooling sensation to the eyes which is a good thing specially with the hot weather refusing to cease!
Ayurvedic ingredients good for healthy eyes.
Not smudge free. After application began to smudge within half an hour..
Not smear free too as claimed 🙁
Not suitable for use on the upper eyelids or as a liner.
Gave me panda eyes at work!!
This is not a kajal one can wear to work or an outing for too long!
Not suitable for use in monsoons or summers (sweat and water will make it further smudge prone).
Probably useful as a medicinal kajal – I am planning to use it that way to relax and cool the eyes but I wouldn’t really suggest to use it as a cosmetic kajal because I prefer smudge proof kajals for the same.
Repurchase and recommendation :
I wouldn’t personally repurchase it and would recommend it for only medicinal use.
