The SoulTree Kajal Story
Is SoulTree Kajal Worth The Attention?
I’ve been using Soultree Kajal like for the past 3 years here I thought I must post a review on it.
First time, I came across this kajal on flipkart in 2015 & ever since I haven’t looked back. However, it was not the first kajal I’d used. Previously, being a beauty-junkie, I’d tried almost everything in the market however I came across this specific lipstick-like shape & packaging of kohl kajal in 2007 when I bought home a Lotus Kajal & I immediately fell in love with the shape.
This lipstick-like packaging makes it so easy to use that I’m almost stuck to it & I wouldn’t try any other kajal if it’s not shaped like this; yes I’m officially superstitious now. Since then I’ve tried almost any kohl that looked like that.
Some provided good pigmentation, & some didn’t.
Being an Indian woman, I think I can go without any other beauty/make product but I can’t believe a day without a kohl. As you know, I have large eyes & to make it look shapely, I always weigh on kajal on my waterline.
This is an issue with me. Most kajals don’t survive for long on my waterline & I needed a product that lasts long. When I came across this, I’d wonder about the pricing though, it’s priced at Rs. 350/- & comes in a variety of shades but for then, I’d stick to the basic one, the black kohl.
I acknowledge now that I thought twice before buying this thing at Rs 350/- because other ‘similar’ products came under Rs. 150/- but still I thought I should try it anyway.
Normally I don’t care about pricing if the product is worth it.
I’d make sure about anything I’d put on my eyes because having large eyes has its own consequences. I have a little eye-dehydration problem & back in 2014, my ophthalmologist asked me not to use any kohl on waterline because it has a tendency to spread through my eyes & blur my vision.
This is the prime reason I was looking for something that’s safe enough to get into my eyes & at the very moment I found this.
The brand claims,
“This kajal is made by a traditional ayurvedic recipe using a 3000 year old process. It has a 100% natural composition”.

I bought Soul Tree Ayurvedic Kajal in the Shade 011 Pure Black.
Packaging-wise it’s really cute & fuss-free. This comes in a little black paper box with the product effortlessly tucked inside.
Now I use kajal in various ways & not only along the waterline & it also mentions in the package that it can be used as eyeshadow too.
And in this case, I think it’s worth every penny. It’s decently priced at Rs. 350/-.
It’s rightly said because Soultree Kajal comes in so many shades that’s surpass my need my any mono shadow I’d want.
More of it, it spreads very easily whether you’re using a brush or your fingers. I prefer spreading kajal using my fingers because the warmth of blood circulation would encourage the ghee to melt & spread it easily. Thus even a smoky eye can be created effortlessly.
I also tried wearing this kajal like an eyeliner. Most eyeliners today wouldn’t smudge easily. Gel eyeliners get dried up almost instantly & there are high chances of you screwing up & end up with panda eyes. Pen liners aren’t meant for smudging but since I’m such a huge fan of smudged eye look with my lips toned down (especially with a traditional attire), I take advantage of this ghee-based kohl.
This kajal is easy to smudge & also easy to wear sharply like any other eyeliner & the ingredients make it super-safe for being used along the waterline, even for troubled eyes like me.
This is also easy to take off. When I was a novice, I’d try to smudge it along the upper lash line (eyeliner) & screw up a lot but it didn’t take me a makeup remover to remove the excess but just another clean finger would get rid of the extra product by a gentle rubbing.
So even the most novice would use this effortlessly & that’s why I’m practically in love with this product.
At Rs. 350/- you get a multitasker with the benefits of four: kohl kajal, eyeliner, eyeshadow & even to groom eyebrow (but I’d better suggest you to use a brown shade for that) I couldn’t even finish the product with regular usage & it expired, so I had to toss it.

So it’s such a steal.
Here’s the final verdict:
· Deep pigmentation
· Organic ingredients make this thing safer than those others in the market
· Nice Packaging
· Spreads easily
· Survives long on my waterline
· Lasts real long as eyeliner too
· Multitasker as kohl, eyeliner, eyeshadow & eyebrow pencil.
· Easy to use lipstick like packaging
· Easy to take off, just a few gentle strokes with a finger would get it off, you don’t need makeup remover.
· Decently priced at Rs. 350/-
· A lot of product gets wasted as it expires soon
Would I repurchase Soultree Kajal again?
Indeed. I’m madly in love with this now & I’d repurchase it for sure & this time, all the colours that are available. Safety comes first for eyes. I’d give big thumbs up to this product.
