Hey Friends.. ☺☺☺
Good day to all! ❤❤❤
Aloe Vera was called the “Plant of immortality” by the ancient Egyptians, for a big reason!!! ❤
The list of skincare and health benefits of this miraculous plant are uncountable.. ❤❤❤
The juice of aloe vera aids digestion and treats mouth ulcers while the fresh pulp or gel of aloe vera soothes dry, flaky skin, while providing optimal moisturisation to the oily skin too.. It treats and soothes sunburns and breakouts.. It even slows down the process of aging by reducing the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines..
Now, we all want beautiful, radiant skin life long! But as our lives get busier day by day.. Who has the time, today, to scrape out the pulp from an aloe leaf? 😛
Instead, coming to our rescue, several brands have introduced packed organic aloe vera gel in the market, which are a tad easier to use, store and come with a far greater shelf life…
Out of all the aloe gels available today, the most inexpensive one is “Patanjali Aloe Vera Gel”, which I am going to review today! ☺☺☺

MY TAKE ON THE PRODUCT:
Patanjali Aloe Vera Gel comes in a transparent, medium quality, plastic tube with a bright orange coloured, hard, flip cap.. The cap is quite sturdy and doesn’t cause any product leakage.. All the details about the product are mentioned on the body of the tube! 😀
The packaging is not at all fancy and looks quite cheap.. 😛
The aloe gel is green in colour due to the addition of artificial dyes.. I, personally, don’t understand the need to add artificial colours in a natural product that don’t even resemble its original colour!! 😛 Also, it has added aqua fragrance which in no way resembles the actual smell of aloe vera… 🙁
I had used this gel on my face, regularly, for quite a few months in the past, and didn’t notice any difference in my skin.. The gel acts as a good moisturizer for combination-oily to oily skin and gets absorbed very quickly without leaving any residue behind, but apart from that it does nothing much to reduce the pimples, their redness or the pigmented spots.. 🙁
It doesn’t even impart any glow to the face on regular use, unlike the fresh aloe vera gel.
I have used it on sunburns too and noticed only a slight soothing sensation! 🙁
Now, the only use I put it in is to mix my face packs as it helps to bind the dry ingredients together! 😀
(Also read my review over Mittise Rose Water here!)
SUMMING UP PROS AND CONS:
1. Easily available and travel friendly. Buy it from here!
2. Inexpensive compared to the aloe gels from the other brands.
3. Works decently in terms of Moisturisation.
4. Can be used to mix powdered face packs.
1. Not very effective on pimples and pigmentation.
2. Has added colours and fragrance.
3. Not mentioned which chemicals are present as base and preservatives.
4. No significant difference in skin even after prolonged use.
FINAL TAKE: Patanjali Aloe Vera Gel is a good option for those who want an inexpensive gel Moisturizer..
Other than that, It negligibly works to treat pimples, marks and other skin problems.. 🙁
Hope it helps! ❤
Your post was awesome.
I too did review on same product.Checkout
Thank you! Will surely check it out! 🙂
Thanks for the honest review. I too used it before and have the same opinion as you.
Thanks a lot for agreeing 🙂
Always wanted to try this gel, thanks for the product review. The product sounds like a must buy!
Do try it its good for Moisturisation
I have used this and found it not bad at all. I like some of the Patanjali products definitely!
Not bad definitely but not as effective as aloe gels from other brands too
Aloe vera gel is very good for skin and body I’ve not tried the Patanjali one. Review gives clear idea about th product
Patanjali one is not really effective.. thanks for visiting dear 🙂
That’s a very helpful review! Will keep that into consideration.
Thanks for visiting dear ❤
I have never tried Patanjali products- and I feel AloeVera works well without added colours and other ingredients! Nicely reviewed
Thanks for visiting dear 🙂
Nice & detailed review , seems an Okay kind of product in affordable range .
It is really cheap.. but not really effective 😀
If it is not effective on acne and marks then i doubt if i would go for it or not. But it is an affordable option for those who want it.
Yes it is an affordable option but not really effective
its a good product for hydration. I love it 🙂
For hydration, it is really good 🙂
I quite like this aloe vera gel, but nowadays with so much in the news about Patanjali products, I do wonder how natural and safe these products are.
These have 10% preservatives and colours.. without the mention of what chemicals they use
I have always liked the aloevera gel and it’s an essential part of my night time routine too.
Aloe gel is very essential in a oily skin care routine
I liked it initially but after few days it made my skin darker
Initially i also liked it as it was affordable.. but then realised its useless 😛
To be honest, I don’t like this product. yes it is super affordable but chemical laden too. I bough it long ago and it remains in my cupboard used. Thanks for sharing honest review.
Thanks for visiting dear.. it is in my cupboard to.. i have stopped using it
I prefer using the gel directly from the plant rather than the ones available in the market
Same for me.. the market ones are not as effective
I do have patanjali Aloe gel and Its my favourite. Just one query I have can we use it in kids hair as well.
Ya you can definitely use it dear.. there’s no such issue.. just don’t use it for infants or toddlers
I used to use this a lot but did not see any cure for acne… then I started using green leaf aloe Vera gel and that was really effective
I too like the green leaf aloe.. its much more better
This aloevera gel is not that much great ,in fact I have the other kesar version of patanjali aloevera gel and not like much both…
I am yet to try the kesar variant because i seriously dont like this one
Its an amazing gel really. I used it in many things like my face packs, serum, etc. It gives a nice result also. Its really very useful.
Oh.. good to know it worked for you dear
I have always found it an average product. Dont know why people hype it so much. Appreciate the honest review.
Thank you dear.. i too find it just average
I have also used this aloe vera gel and my views on this product are ditto as your. It is a cheap option for an aloe vera gel and that’s it. Doesn’t do much more.
Yes that’s true.. just good for Moisturisation and nothing else
I use aloe vera gel daily. Its a saviour for me. I get oily skin in these days and aloevera works really well
Aloe works for me too.. but patanjali aloe gel is not much effective
It’s a very okay type product for me. I just use it with other ingredients.
Same for me.. I don’t consider it as an aloe gel.. 😀
