Hey everyone!

In the last blog I listed 5 patanjali products that you should buy and now I’m gonna list 5 patanjali products that you should not buy!

DISCLAIMER: If this list includes any product that you like and swear by, please don’t get offended because it is totally based on personal experience!

Let’s get started!!


It doesn’t kill the bad mouth odour completely and doesn’t clean the teeth properly due to which they start to become yellow after few days. It’s not the kind of toothpaste that wakes you up and makes you feel fresh in the morning.




It’s the only flavour of lip balm they sell but that’s not an issue, the problem is that during summers it melts and turns into a very ‘watery’ and ‘messy’ solution even at the room temperature. Also, it has a strong fragrance which some of you might not like, like me. But during winters it works fine.

  1. HONEY

This honey tastes exactly like the Dabur one and during winters it segregate to form two separate layers of sugar and yellow honey solution. Also, there was this news that patanjali pours the Dabur honey into their containers and pack them under their own label and sell in the market. Though, I don’t know to what extent it is true!

This detergent is my worst patanjali buy till date because it makes the clothes yellow and leaves some sand-like particles on the washed clothes that can be felt once the clothes are dry. It has ruined a lot of my white clothes!

It’s very heavy and oily! It has a boroplus like texture. I don’t know who wants a face full of boroplus on a hot summer day?! It doesn’t control sweat, rather increases it. It makes the face oily to such an extent that it comes off like an eraser/rubber dust if you touch your face. It’s not at all recommended for people who have oily skin because it will make it worse. Use it only if you have ‘ultra’ dry skin!!

So that’s it! Please share your patanjali experiences (good or bad) with me about the above or any other product in the comment section, so that everybody including me gets to know more about patanjali! 🙂




Patanjali promotes yoga and ayurvedic products in India and abroad, at a really large-scale. Their product range is unbelievable; they sell almost everything from a toothbrush to cornflakes and from kajal to incense sticks (agarbattis).

Here are 5 patanjali products that you must have!


  1. ALOE VERA GEL (Rs.40 for 60ml and Rs.80 for 150 ml- Green Gel// Rs.50 for 60ml and Rs.100 for 150 ml- Yellow Gel)

They sell 2 types of gel a) Aloe Vera Gel (the green one) b) Kesar Chandan Gel (the yellow one). The gel acts as a moistirizer and gradually fades away the acne scars. Massage it gently on your face before you go to sleep and wash your face in the morning. But I would suggest you not to use these gels during monsoon because they can make your skin look really oily during rains.

If you have oily skin, use the green gel because it’s light and would not make your skin look oiler. And if you have dry skin, use the yellow gel because it’s moisturising powers are more comparatively.




This shampoo actually does wonders to your scalp as it starts working from the first wash and reduce the dandruff. It gives some cooling sensations too. Wash your hair twice in a week with this shampoo to actually see the results and reduced dandruff. It might make your hair a bit rough, so to avoid that use conditioner after shampoo or oil your hair properly before shampooing.

This face wash removes all the dirt, dust and other nasty things off your face. It has carbon in it which is known to extract all the impurities. It’s highly recommended for the people with oily skin, it’s a true cleanser your skin needs when you come back home after a long working day. If you wanna see your skin in its purest and the cleanest state give this face wash a try! But if you have a dry skin you might not like it because it removes every little spot of oil from your face so you might feel even drier after using this.


  1. APRICOT FACE SCRUB (Rs.60 for 60 gm)

Though this face scrub is the only one they sell but it is the best quality of scrub at such cheap price. The apricot beads are so tiny and fine that they are completely harmless to your skin and still remove the blackheads completely. There are a lot of face scrubs that are not able to remove black heads on nose but it does that too! After using it, skin feels super smooth and nourished and doesn’t get patchy red!

How to use: Wash your face with normal water and let it remain wet. And then gently massage this scrub on your face for good 5-7 minutes then, wash it off and viola!


  1. KANTI HALDICHANDAN BODY CLEANSER SOAP (Rs.13 for 75 gm and Rs.25 for 150 gm)


It’s a nice and light soap for skin. The thing that I really like about this soap is that it produces yellow foam for the first 5-6 baths as it claims to have haldi and chandan in it. Also, it gives you a nice, pleasant fragrance throughout the day. And it doesn’t leave the body dry, rather softens it. You should definitely give it a try!


I hope this information was useful for you!!
