Dr. Sheth’s Clarifying Sulphur Mask Review


In today's post I am sharing my review on Dr. Sheth’s Clarifying Sulphur Mask.

Sulphur is an important mineral in the body which helps in preventing the cells from oxidative damage and stress. 

Topical sulphur products help in reducing sebum production, removes dead skin cell layers, acts as an antimicrobial agent and helps in unclogging pores.

Sulphur has been used for many years for the treatment of fungal infections, mild form of acne seborrheic dermatitis etc. application of sulphur based products also helps in treating malassezia folliculitis (fungal acne).

Coming to the product details- 

What does the product say ?

Price- 749 INR 

Quantity- 30 gm 

Packaging- 

The mask comes in a dark tinted glass jar. The brand has not provided any spatula to scoop out the product. 

Texture- 

The texture is like a clay mask which has an easy spreadability on the skin. It feels smooth on application and gives a bit of warm sensation while applying it on the skin.


How to use it ? 

As a clay mask- apply adequate quantity of the sulphur mask on cleansed face or on the affected area. Leave it for ten minutes, then wash it off with lukewarm water. Apply a good moisturiser afterwards as sulphur can be a bit drying to the skin. 

As a spot treatment- take a little bit of mask from the tub and dab it as dots on emerging zits/ pimples. You can leave it overnight on your skin as a spot treatment. 



My experience with the product- 

I do love a good sulphur based product for my combination acne-prone skin. Sulphur works like benzoyl peroxide and salicylic acid but it is less irritating than them. If you are new to any sulphur based product a patch test is recommended to know whether its working on your skin or not.

Dr. Sheth's clarifying sulphur clay mask has become one of my favourite masks as it helps in effectively removing the dead skin cell layers, giving a clear complexion. The mask is easy to apply and it also washes off nicely without any hassle.  

I do feel a bit dryness on my skin after its application so following with a good moisturiser is a must with this mask. 

Whenever I feel that my pores are clogged or my skin is feeling dull, application of this product helps in brightening my skin and unclogs my pores which helps in preventing further breakouts.


It is very gentle on the skin and works as a quick fix weekly treatment for me. 

Pros- 

  1. Contains sulphur for exfoliation of the skin.
  2. Lecithin helps in moisturisation.
  3. Passion fruit helps in calming the skin.
  4. Easily available.
  5. Travel friendly.
  6. Controls sebum production.
  7. Can be used as a spot treatment.
  8. Dries our existing acne.
  9. Makes the skin brighter and clear.
  10. Paraben free.
  11. Vegan.
  12. Sulphate free.

Cons- 

1. A bit expensive for the quantity provided.

Will I recommend it? 

Yes !! It really works well on acne prone skin types.

Minimalist Salicylic acid + LHA 2% Face Cleanser review

Salicylic acid and Capryloyl salicylic acid (LHA) have been gaining popularity in the skincare industry for quite some time now. Salicylic acid is a beta hydroxy acid (BHA) which has keratolytic properties that helps in unclogging pores making it suitable for acne prone skin types. LHA on the other hand is a derivative of salicylic acid which has an added fatty chain to make it more lipophilic and gentle for exfoliation. In today's post I am sharing my experience with the newly launched M inimalist Salicylic Acid and LHA 2% face cleanser . If you have read my previous posts you must know that most of the minimalist products worked really well for me except for the PHA toner so I was pretty excited to use its face cleanser as well. The face wash is sulphate free and contains both BHA and LHA for gentle exfoliation of dead skin cell layers. Clogged pores can lead to the formation of non-inflammatory (blackheads, whiteheads) and inflammatory acne. Hence adding such chemical exfoliat

Minimalist Multi Peptide Serum Review

Peptides are made up of two or more amino acids which are the building block of proteins.  Collagen is naturally present in our body which is made up of polypeptides. As we grow older the collagen starts depleting which can result in presenting the signs of aging such as fine lines and wrinkles. Adding a topical peptide serum or moisturiser in your daily skincare routine can delay these signs while promoting a healthy and youthful skin. Whenever you want to incorporate any topical peptide product in your skincare routine always invest in a good leave on product rather than wash off products. The reason behind it is that leave on products are there in contact with the skin for a longer period of time helping to show results more effectively. In today's post I am sharing my views on the Multi Peptide Serum by Minimalist . Minimalist is an Indian skincare and hair care brand that has come up with affordable serums and moisturisers with a good percentage of actives in them
