Dr. Sheth’s is bringing out a ton of new launches at the moment, and as a consumer, it can get overwhelming for you to pick and choose. That’s why I am here to tell you what is worth your attention and what you can skip. In today’s post I will be reviewing 3 of their latest launches – Dr. Sheth’s Niacinamide and Green Tea Calming Toner, Liquorice and Lactic Acid Peel, and Aloe and Panthenol Hydrating Gel. Here is everything you need to know to decide if these products are worth your money!
Dr. Sheth’s Niacinamide and Green Tea Calming Toner
Niacinamide is often touted as the cure to all skincare woes, and with good reason. It is an antioxidant that brightens the skin and has anti-acne properties too. However, more isn’t always more with this ingredient, and over time I have realized that 5% Niacinamide is the maximum concentration my skin likes on an everyday basis. Higher concentrations sometimes tend to irritate my skin, leading to bumps unless buffered. Hence, the Dr. Sheth’s Niacinamide and Green Tea Calming Toner is an excellent niacin-based product for sensitive skin and everyone in general. It contains 5% Niacinamide with soothing green tea and calendula. Plus it is fragrance-free and comes in a convenient pump packaging.
My Experience With Dr. Sheth’s Niacinamide Toner
I fell in love with the Dr. Sheth’s Niacinamide and Green Tea Calming Toner right from the first spritz, and now after emptying the bottle, I can safely say that this product is a winner for me! It feels soothing and hydrating on the skin, and wakes my face up in the morning. It also helps to calm down inflammation and redness, and has helped reduce my acne to some extent too. For the price of INR 350 for a 50ml bottle, it is a fairly affordable option for an active-based toner. I will highly recommend those with acne-prone, sensitive, or easily inflamed skin to try it out. I’m quite certain you will like it! Just one word of caution – avoid getting this into the eyes as it may sting because of the active ingredients.
Dr. Sheth’s Liquorice And Lactic Acid Peel
Lactic acid is one of the beginner-friendly AHAs that you can trust for mild exfoliation. The Dr. Sheth’s Liquorice and Lactic Acid Peel combines this exfoliant with brightening liquorice, soothing calendula, and sebum-controlling Niacinamide. It comes in an interesting gel format that you can easily spread on your skin. The brand claims that you can use it as an overnight treatment or as a 10-minute mask. Here is how I like to use the product and my thoughts on it so far.
My Experience With Dr. Sheth’s Lactic Acid Peel
Even though the Dr. Sheth’s Liquorice and Lactic Acid Peel contains only 8.8% Lactic Acid, I don’t like to use it as an overnight treatment. The reason is that I am skeptical about layering other products on top of the gel formula. Secondly, since most of my PM skincare contains some actives, I prefer to use this as a wash-off product and then proceed with other products after using a pH-balancing toner.
When I use it as a 10 minute mask, it tingles very slightly on the sensitive areas of my skin. After washing it off, my skin looks visibly smoother, brighter and softer. I have noticed that I get extra soft and smooth skin when I follow up this peel with the Dr. Sheth’s Aloe and Panthenol Gel. So, I use the gel as my hydrating product whenever I use this peel. Overall, I feel that this is an excellent peel to get rid of congestions and dullness, but may take time to show results with stubborn blackheads. The price point of INR 500 for a 50gm tube and the convenient packaging are bonuses. I will definitely recommend this one if you are in the market for a gentle weekly/bi-weekly peel.
Dr. Sheth’s Aloe And Panthenol Hydrating Gel
If you are a lover of aloe-based products then I am sure that the Dr. Sheth’s Aloe & Panthenol Hydrating Gel must have caught your attention by now. This aloe gel is unique because it also contains 1% Panthenol (extremely soothing), 2% Niacinamide (anti-inflammatory), 2% Urea (powerful moisturizer), and prebiotics to protect your skin. It comes in a convenient tube packaging which is suitable for the slightly viscous consistency of the product, making it more travel-friendly and hygienic than tubs of aloe vera gel. However, I do have a few concerns regarding this one, so hear me out.
My Experience With Dr. Sheth’s Aloe & Panthenol Gel
There is no doubt that the Dr. Sheth’s Aloe & Panthenol Hydrating Gel is a soothing, plumping, and hydrating product. As I mentioned before, it works particularly well with their Liquorice and Lactic Acid Peel, offering me baby smooth skin. However, one slight drawback to this product is its stickiness, which some may find uncomfortable. I personally do not mind the stickiness at night but it can be a little too much for me during the day. However, you can use the stickiness to your advantage by using this one as a primer under makeup. On the no makeup days though, it may not be everybody’s cup of tea. The price point of INR 550 for a 50gm tube is again pretty good. So, if you are looking for an upgrade to your regular aloe gel, this one might be worth a shot!
I hope that these short reviews help you choose the right products from the Dr. Sheth’s kitty. Let me know in the comments below which other products from the brand would you like me to try!
