patanjali kesar chandan aloe vera gel-review

I have been a fan of aloe vera gel ever since I started to use it in its raw form. Aloe vera gel provides nourishment and calms skin down in a great way. Aloe vera has a lot of good benefits to skin and is used widely in skin care products. But nothing can beat the fresh gel whatsoever. Although due to busy lifestyle using fresh gel is quite time-consuming. This was the point where shifted my focus onto buying readymade gels. After a lot of searches, I decided to give Patanjali aloe vera gel a shot. First I bought the green aloe vera gel by Patanjali was good. And after finishing the green one I thought of buying the yellow aloe vera gel (Kesar Chandan) by Patanjali.


About the brand and product:

Patanjali Ayurveda is an Indian ayurvedic brand. This popular brand has a vast line of cosmetics and daily utility product. One of their best seller, the aloe vera gel (green) is loved by many people. The gel I bought is called Patanjali Saundarya Aloe Vera Gel Kesar Chandan. I bought this gel from a local store. It comes in flip open tube packaging which is transparent and has a bright yellow cap. The gel is in yellow colour and has a medium consistency.

Price Rs. 100 for 150 ml.

What does the product claim?

A unique blend of Chandan and Kesar with aloe vera gel provides antioxidant and nourishment properties, which makes complexion free from roughness and dullness. Also helps to control sunburn, dark spots, tanning and pigmentation.

My experience

I was quite excited to try this product as I loved the green aloe Vera gel from the same brand. This product didn’t impress at all. Although it claims in bold that it was sandal and saffron (Kesar, Chandan) the percentage in the actual composition is too low, that is it is almost negligible. When I first applied the gel it seems to be quite convincing but after using it for a week I could see the actual results. The results were that it made my combination skin a little greasier. It does somehow dull the complexion of my skin after few hours of application which doesn’t happen with the green gel. The gel somehow neither smells like aloe nor like Kesar Chandan, it was some different weird smell. Also the colour is yellow which is additive and not a natural colour, and in my opinion is useless and unnecessary. As far as nourishment is considered, it does nourish the skin well but doesn’t work on pigmentation and dark spots. Also, it is no different from the green aloe Vera gel, the only difference is the yellow colour. As a moisturiser or more suitable as a nourisher it a good buy other than that it’s a no.


  • Easily available
  • Affordable
  • Great for nourishment
  • Good for dry skin type
  • Ayurvedic


  • Does nothing great to skin
  • Makes complexion duller
  • Not suitable for oily skin
  • Doesn’t do what it claims.



If you belong to dry or normal skin type, you can go for it, as it will provide good nourishment. As far as oily and combination skin people are considered, sticking to green version is better as one turns skin a little greasier. In all good as a gel but not the best.
