Dr Sheths Neem & BHA Spot Clarifying Serum Review

Hey guys what’s up! I am up with Dr. Sheths Neem & BHA Spot Clarifying Serum Review today. You can grab this at flat 20% off from Vanity Wagon using code PEPILIO! You guys know that I have combination skin and it gets problematic if I don’t take care of it. I have seen huge difference after using double cleansing daily, clay based or clarifying masks and BHA at intervals. I have included these long back and have been using religiously. I have open pores on nose and apple cheeks and I have to keep those clean, otherwise comedons clog and result into pusky acne. After having bad experience with Suganda BHA serum, finally I found a really good BHA clarifying serum by Dr. Sheths. I am using couple of their products. Let’s get into the review now.

Hero ingredients are 2% BHA, niacinamide, neem oil and tea tree oil. This is a very well formulated serum from the house of Dr. Sheths!

How to Use?

This versatile serum can be incorporated in your anti-acne routine in two ways!

1.As a mask

  • With clean hands, rub a few pumps of the clarifying serum on your palms till the neem and tea tree oil pearls burst and activate.
  • Apply an even layer of the gel on your face. Leave it on for 5-10 mins.
  • Wash off with a mild cleanser.
  • This can be done 2-3 times a week.

2.As a spot treatment overnight :

  • Whenever you spot a pesky pimple or blackhead making an unwanted appearance on your skin, apply a bit of the serum on it.
  • Leave overnight and wash off the next morning!
  • Apply an even layer of the gel on your face. Leave it on for 5-10 mins.
  • Derm tip : It can also be mixed with Our Basic Brightening Extra Gentle Daily Peel peel for deeper exfoliation, or our Rosehip and Retinoid Power Emulsion for a more targeted approach to zap away acne.
  • And don’t forget to slather on the sunscreen! ALL BHAs make Indian skin more susceptible to UV and pollution and we must be sure to apply a generous layer of SPF to keep our skin protected.

Texture & Smell

Dr. Sheths Neem & BHA Spot Clarifying Serum has gel texture with beautiful green beads inside. These pearls are made of neem and tea tree. This serum has no added fragrance. Tea tree oil is in extremely low concentration.


Dr. Sheths Neem & BHA serum comes in a glass bottle with pump packing. It dispenses the serum really nicely and does not spit it.

My Experience with Dr. Sheths Neem & BHA Spot Clarifying Serum

I like to use this as overnight spot treatment. I have seen visible difference right from 1st usage! I use it 2 or 3 times a week in PM routine. I have used it as an overnight spot treatment as well as a wash off mask but I like using it spot treatment more. I take few pumps in and massage till the green beads are burst and mixed thoroughly – it hardly takes a minute. I apply it wherever I see acne is popping up or skin feels congested. This serum is to be applied right after washing face in whichever way you want to use. This is a spot treatment so I was confused to use this before moisturizer or after – I asked to Dr. Sheths to clarify. It is lightweight serum, takes a few minutes to completely sink in.

I have seen my underground bumps and on surface zits disappearing with this serum. Hormonal cysts disappear in 2-3 usages and I see this serum balances the oil secretion. Stubborn blackheads disappear after a few usages. I mean this is everything that I or anyone would want from a BHA serum, right! Dr. Sheths Neem BHA serum does exactly what it claims. It does not dry out or irritate the skin at all but in fact it calms it. This is working amazingly on me just like Pure by Priyanka Green tea toner does! Also, Dr. Sheths BHA serum has the perfect formula. It is suitable to very sensitive skin types and I cannot get it enough. If you have congested, very oily skin type – just get this.

Dr Sheths Neem & BHA Spot Clarifying Serum


  • Never forget wearing sunscreen
  • Do not combine other actives like AHA, vitamin c, retinol in same routine
  • Do not over use
  • Do not apply on broken skin

My Take on Dr. Sheths Neem & BHA Spot Clarifying Serum

This is a really good BHA serum to treat acne as well as a clarifying mask. I would highly recommend this to all. BHA is 2% here and it is extremely gentle yet effective and suitable even for sensitive skin types. Yes, this is perfect for beginners as well. If you have oily, congested or acne prone skin just go and grab this. Don’t forget using my code PEPILIO on Vanity Wagon for flat 20% off.
