Hello and Welcome All. Hope you all are doing well. In today's post, I am sharing my experience with Looms and Weaves Ayurvedic Red Sandalwood Powder. Also known as Laal Chandan or Rakta Chandan. To be honest, I didn't know that something like Red Sandalwood exists (My Poor GK) and is known to be wonderful for the skin. During a general discussion with my friends, I got to know about this product, and after research, I decided to go for The Brand - "Looms and Weaves" which was rated well on Amazon. After spending a good 6 months experimenting with it, here I am with my views. 👩

Product Description

Selected from the finest quality of red sandalwood and powdered. No other ingredients or impurity. This is not intended to diagnose or cure diseases.

How to Use

Mix equal quantity of Wild Turmeric Powder, Red Sandal Powder, and Honey and apply on face. Wash it after 15-20 minutes. You can substitute Honey with Rose Water, Curd Milk Powder, etc. Use this combination once in 2-3 days. You will get a good result. Moreover, it is a natural remedy for the skin.


👉 Packaging: Comes in a safe, easy to carry plastic tub with a screw cap. No risk of breakage.

Brand says "We now avoid plastic coating on the product bottle to reduce plastic use and also part of our environmental concern. But we don't compromise on the safety of the products inside. Inner sealing and other safety precautions are made."

👉 Color and Consistency: Extreme Red or you can say Blood Red. And it comes in a powdered form with some fiber kind of texture in it. So it is actually a mix of fine powder and some exfoliating fiber.

👉 Fragrance: Has a semi-strong kind of fragrance. Doesn't irritates but is somewhat strong. Feels like a hint of muscle pain spray. 😄

👉 My Experience/Effectiveness: My skin is really sensitive and it is a record that whenever I buy something new, where Brand and Product, both are new for me, they didn't go well. 

I bought it back when my skin was facing extreme pimple and acne issues and because red sandalwood is known to be good for acne conditions, I decided to give this a try. The product says you need to mix it with wild turmeric, I was not having that so I did good research for some DIYs with Red Sandalwood Powder.

I tried this thing with every possible ingredient. Be it Honey, Rosewater, Besan (Chickpea Flour), Multani Mitti (Fuller's Earth), Curd and even filtered the powder to extract the fine powder to mix it with coconut oil to be used as night facial massage oil. 

But each of my DIY experiment failed! After every experiment, all I got was red skin. No, that was not a red skin rash, it was the stubborn stain of red sandalwood on my face. This powder stained my skin badly. I cleansed my skin again with a good face wash and even scrub. But the stain was there until the next day. It even stained the Basins and bowls I used to prepare DIY.

Coming to some expected benefits, I didn't experience any benefit or positive effect. Except for the red stains on my skin, I got nothing from this red sandalwood powder. Although it didn't give any rash, itching, or skin irritation. But it didn't give any positive result either. Now, honestly, I don't know if it is this particular brand or the red sandalwood by default leaves such hard stains, but my experience with this didn't go well. 

💁 In Short, Red Sandalwood Powder from Looms and Weaves gave my skin only red stains which were hard to remove. I didn't experience any positive results from this. 

  • Travel-Friendly
  • No Skin Irritation
  • Affordable 

  • Leaves Stubborn Stains on Skin
  • Gave no Benefit to the Skin 

So this was all for today. Hope you will find this post helpful. 

Have a Good Day! 😇

  1. Oh my God, I have bought one from Kerala on my recent trip to Munnar. Now, I am confused if I should use the product or not.

  2. Am using red sandal powder that I bought from local store for some time now but that doesn't stain my skin and it actually treats tan and acne in my case... This sounds new to me.....
    checkout my blog too

  3. Ohh i was expecting this would heal the acnes,.. I will skip this,..

  4. Staining is definitely an issue with some natural products :'(

  5. Never heard about this brand. And thanks for your honest review! I hope you are fine now!

  6. My red sandalwood stains slightly not much but works great

  7. I mix the red sandalwood with curd and aloe vera gel and wash it off before it dries, approx 5 mins. The results are awesome. I have not faced red stains till date. I have blemishes and hyper pigmentatuon on my face and the red sandalwood works wonders for me. I think we should use the powder as instructed on the container.

    1. Agreed! But there was nothing mentioned on the container. Next, I got to know that they are made in batches which are not equal every time and most of the people experienced same.
