My acne Diary: Patanjali Divya Kantilep (Face Pack) Review

Hello Gals & Boys!!! (Boys this post is for you too.)

I was in 11 standard, when my father first time bought me Patanjali Divya Kantilep (face pack). At that moment I was suffering from acnes or pimples problem a lot. I was trying all means to get rid off the big problem I had. My father knew the problem I was facing, he suggested me to use Divya Kanti lep (face pack) instead of harmful cosmetic products I was using. And from that day onwards, I still use it. So today, I am summarizing it.

Product claims: Patanjali Divya Kantilep (face pack) useful in pimples, blackspots, depigmentation and other problems of the face.

Ingredients: Lawsonia inermis, Cucuma amada, Rubia cordifolia, Myristica fragrans, Santalum album, Valeriana wallichii, Sphatika bhasma, Acacia catechu, Cinnamomum camphora, Aloe vera, Amomum subulatum, Myristica fragrans, Moti pishti.

Price: 60 Rs

Wt: 50 gm

Fragrance: It has smell of camphor.

Shelf Life: 36 months or 3 years.

Directions for Use: 2-4 g mix with honey, milk, rose water or aloe vera juice. The paste shall be applied gently on face. Allow to dry (1-2 hrs), then wash with luke warm water once a day or as directed by the physician.

Packaging: It comes in a white colour opaque plastic bottle with a brown (slightly on orange side) colour screw cap. I has a logo of Divya pharmacy with image of Baba Ramdev. At the top of the bottle’s cap “Om”(ॐ) symbol is there. Packaging is travel friendly and sturdy, does not break if falls down.

My opinion about this product: On opening the bottle, you smell a strong essence of camphor. That smell can disturb some people like me. The mixture is brown colour powder which looks like mud. I mix this mixture with rosewater, honey and milk and after applying with brush, keep it for 1 hour.. You can also keep it for whole night. After drying, face should be washed with lukewarm water. Believe me, the product is very effective. It not only treats pimples or acnes but also reduces pigmentation, black spots, and other problems of the face and moreover being herbal in nature, it is harmless for skin.

What I like about this product….

1. Very economical.
2. Very effective on acnes and pimples.
3. No side effects.
4. Easy availability. (Can be purchased from Patanjali stores or online too.)
5. Helps in making skin tone even.
6. Reduces pimples spots.

What I do not like about this product….

I know it leaves some yellow caste but I don’t have any problem with that. I have bit problem with its smell but I know lots of people will like it as my husband do..

  1. Thanks for this share am sure this wil help so many people :)

  2. A crisp review indeed :)
    Is it meant only for oily/acne prone skinned ladies? Or can dry skinned ladies also use it overnight? Won't it dry out our skin?

  3. Thanks alot Nidhal.. No it is not only for oily skin as it is meant to solve various skin problems.. No it will not dry out skin as it only absorbs oil on the skin :)

  4. i have sensitive and oily skin ,so can i use this product????plz suggest

    1. Hey Shreya! You can use it. I also have oily & sensitive skin but never faced any problem with this lep.In case you feel strong sensation then immediately stop usage of this product :)

  5. The yellow skin color after applying this can be removed by washing your face with any mild Face wash.
    I use Patanajali "Soundharya" face wash and it removes the color immediately.

    1. Thanks for sharing your experience Ramya:)
