Our Tamilian brethren smears it on their forehead and it looks very inimitable, prepossessing and alluring. Its riveting aroma enchants one and thereby sends one’s olfactory senses into a tizzy. Its sallow shade looks tailor-made for Indian skin. It’s been used in skin care for over decades. The wonder ingredient which many swear by is none other than Sandalwood. Also called Chandan in Hindi, there are myriad skin care benefits of this amazing beauty ingredient. From clearing tanning to cooling one’s skin, from being a savior for oily and acne-prone skin by absorbing the excessive oil off one’s skin to imparting a prepossessing glow, sandalwood is a treasure trove of skin care 🙂
Having being an ardent user of sandalwood in my skin care regimen, I am constantly on a lookout for organic products (such as – Satveda chandan haldi moisturizer) consisting of sandalwood as its ingredient. Today, I will share Rishimukh Sandal Beauty Soap Review. I picked it during a trip down South. Having used it for a fortnight, today I’ll share my experience with the same as well as enlist its pros and cons.

What Rishimukh Sandal Beauty Soap claims
My experience with Rishimukh Sandal Beauty Soap
Packed in a delectable cardboard-made shell-like container, Rishimukh Sandal Beauty Soap looks very eye-pleasing at first glance. The packaging is undoubtedly sturdy and the main soap inset is covered with a plastic pack which ensures its protection from dust, grime and pollutants. Once used, it to be necessarily transferred to a clean soap holder else the soap’s froth and the concomitant water will rumple the cardboard pack and lead to its spoilage. On account of packaging, therefore I don’t find it up to the mark despite its comely appearance.
The soap is slightly thick but can be easily cut into smaller pieces using a knife to prolong its usage. It isn’t waxy or creamy. Bearing a TFM (called TOTAL FATTY MATERIAL) of 72%, Rishimukh sandal beauty soap is in the second grade of soaps. Higher the TFM content of a soap, better is its cleansing effect. Lower the TFM, more is the amount of fillers in it. Since parched/ extremely dry skin is in dire need of intense hydration, I won’ recommend it to them. It cleanses skin effectively thereby removing all the dirt and dust. It cools one’s skin well which will be a boon during blistering summer months. I find it apt for use by normal and oily skin throughout the year but dry skin shouldn’t rely on it during winters since soaps sap moisture.
Even though Rishimukh Sandal Beauty Soap is handmade, I would rather recommend use of herbal bath powder such as- Dhathri snana choornam to those with dry skin during winters if they wish to cleanse their moisture without ripping it off its moisture content. This soap does impart a bit of glow but that is very faint. In fact, if you use herbal bath powders, the effect would be better.
In totality, Rishimukh Sandal Beauty Soap cleanses skin well, removes dirt, cools it and imparts a very subtle glow, however, it cannot be used year round by those with dry skin. Those with extremely dry skin shouldn’t use it at all. It isn’t something to go gaga over but given the price, it does a fine job at cleansing.
