Divya Kantilep comes in a sturdy white plastic bottle with a brown screw lid. The packaging is not at all attractive.
It comes in a granular powder form which is yellowish brown in color. The granules are too gritty so I avoid using it as a scrub.
The smell of the pack is very strong. It smells of camphor which I like . There is nothing written over the bottle regarding the directions of usage. So I make this pack with rose water as I have oily skin. If you have dry skin you can also mix it with milk. I apply it with a light hand so as to avoid scrubbing and let it stay for 15-20 mins. It gives a nice cooling effect. It doesn’t dry out quickly due to its granular texture. It is easily rinse-able. Once I applied it for 1 hour and it left a yellow cast on my skin which I don’t like at all . Well I didn’t see any noticeable changes whenever I use this pack except that it makes my skin clean. It doesn’t provide any glow to my skin which I do expect from my face packs. But It doesn’t dry out my skin unlike other face packs and I don’t feel the immediate need of moisturisation. It keeps my skin oil free for 4-5 hours. It did nothing to my acne though my friends swear by this face pack (I don’t use it regularly so this might be the reason that I couldn’t see any effect.( I use it twice a month).

I find Divya Kantilep to be an average product. It makes my skin clean and oil free for a long time. If applied for a long time it gives yellow cast on my face but that can be removed with a face wash. It did not show any significant effect on my acne. Overall I am not satisfied with this product.
