Today I want to write about a product that is definitely famous & useful. Patanjanli Aloe Vera Gel is truly a flagship product of the Patanjali fold. If you go to the average Indian house and look at the average shelf, there’s more than sixty percent chance of finding a half empty bottle of this gel. I have used Aloe Vera Gel before, in fact I love a bit of Aloe Vera on my skin. But after hearing the fame of Patanjali Aloe Vera Gel I decided to try the product and here I am reviewing it for you guys!
Brand: Patanjali Ayurved Limited
Product: Patanjali Aloe Vera Gel
Color: Light Green
Quantity: 150 ml
Price in India: 80 INR
My Analysis of Patanjali Aloe Vera Gel
We use a range of products each day to fulfill our daily need of skin care. Few of them are from multinational brands & few from Indian or Desi brands. In spite of being an Indian brand, the uniqueness of Patanjali Ayurved Limited lies in the fact that its products are ayurvedic. This means that all the products that Patanjali produces follows the ancient principles of Ayurveda. Many people across India use their products and benefit from it. Patanjali Aloe Vera Gel is another such product.
Firstly, the thing that struck me the most was its price. 150 ml of gel for only 80 bucks! I think most Aloe Vera Gels in the market are costlier than Patanjali Aloe Vera Gel. Patanjali Aloe Vera Gel certainly gives more quantity in comparison to its price. Secondly, the product is easily available. Patanjali started with a few brick & mortar shops and now has spread into many towns, cities including big shopping complexes. The brand enjoys an equal amount of online presence also. Therefore, there’s always a Patanjali store nearby.
As you can see from the picture above, I have already used up much of it.
Patanjali Aloe Vera Gel also has Vitamin E (my earlier post talks about its benefits), permitted colour, sugandhit drabya (added fragrance).
The specific directions of use given are
- Before bed time, apply a layer of Patanjali Aloe Vera Gel on your face and massage gently. After getting up in the morning, wash your face with luke warm water.
- Apply Patanjali Aloe Vera Gel thirty minutes before taking bath.
- Apply Patanjali Aloe Vera Gel on acne or scars & massage gently for five to seven minutes.
- To get relief from hair fall & develop strong & nourished hair, apply Patanjali Aloe Vera Gel on your scalp fifteen minutes before taking bath & massage gently.
Although this product is really good and many of us have benefitted from it, I had a few hiccups while using it. I had followed the directions of use & applied it on my face while going to bed, but in the morning there were mild break out of rash on my face. I have sensitive skin and this problem may not be happening for everybody. I do not see this much as a problem because, due to sensitivity, my skin often rejects some products but this may not be true for many other users out there. So, do check it out before planning to use it regularly. On the plus side, I use Patanjali Aloe Vera Gel on my pimples before going to bed, and in the morning most of my pimples go away 🙂
Color and Texture
The Patanjali Aloe Vera Gel is light green in color. It has a thick consistency, and is easy to apply on the skin. There is a cooling effect on the skin after applying & the smell is refreshing.
The packaging is simple with an orange cap & transparent body. The good thing about the body is that one can clearly have a look at the amount left. On the downside, it might get a bit messy if you try to squeeze out a bit more than usual. All in all, I am not dissatisfied with the packaging given the price of the product & the quantity they are giving.
Patanjali Ayurved Limited is a huge brand in India with revenue turning into $1.6 billion. With their Ayurveda way of manufacturing, they boast to have reduced the side effects that normal chemical based products have. I am really happy with their product Patanjali Aloe Vera Gel and I understand why so many people use it. So, if you haven’t, I would like to urge you to give it a try. You will definitely like it!
