I use Kajal every single day. Have done it everyday for the past 52 years. When I was a baby Amma would apply it for me and then in school, I would apply it myself. The Kajal (Kohl is the closest translation) was homemade for many many years. Then I shifted to the “Eyetex” brand that would come in small tiny round boxes. I have never used the eyeliner or eyeshadow or even Kohl.
In the past 10 years or so, I shifted to Biotique as Eyetex was not available in Delhi NCR. In 2018 on a trip to Chennai I bought Eyetex Kajal stick, thinking that the brand has probably remained the same as before. The quality unfortunately seems to have deteriorated :(. I ended up with a stye in the eye for a few months and my eyes would water with a slight burning sensation. I kept thinking that it was because of the weather conditions or due to my menopause and the hormonal changes it has brought with it.
I became a part of a WhatsApp group through the Living Without Medicine FB page where organic product and produce sellers post about the different items they sell. I found this post about Ayurvedic Kajal. I immediately contacted Ajeesh at Ved Tattva and got the Kajal stick delivered to me in Gurgaon in Jan 2021.
Feedback – Using the Sunetra Kajal from Ved Tattva made a huge difference to the burning sensation and watery eyes. The stye disappeared ! The quality is truly outstanding and I would recommend it without hesitation. Contact Aneesh @ +91 72047 76221 to get your Kajal delivered.
