Herbalife Skincare Review

If one thing this lockdown as taught me, it is that I need to look after myself a lot more than I normally do. I used to have a great grooming routine but over the last year or so I've been quite busy with work. Meaning any sort of routine went out of the window.

So being in lockdown has given me that extra time to bring this routine right back and god I definitely feel the benefits. I look better and also feel loads better in myself.
And this is all down to the Herbalife Unisex Skincare Products I have been using.




If you have visited my blog before you may have seen that I have worked with Herbalife before, if not then please check out my post here. Also, don't be too quick to judge we have found they have some great products when used correctly. 

Like I said my skincare routine was totally out of the window and, to be honest, my skin was starting to look quite old... well I am 37 now but I have always had quite good skin. Don't get me wrong I'm not Mr wrinkle yet but I do have a good few lines starting to appear. Not to mention the morning eye bags are coming along quite nicely.

I feel a lot more confident, I started posting a few more selfies and my wife as mentioned a few times that my skin is looking a lot better, which is always nice to hear.

We've reviewed quite a lot of skincare products on the blog and we have found some really good and some mediocre. I can honestly say I think I have found my favourite products within the Herbalife range. I'm really happy that I can let you guys know what I think. 

I was sent quite a few different products and I have used them all but there was a certain few which blew me away and they were that good that my wife and 14-year old son started using them too. This was a bit of a pain because they soon disappeared.


The first product I would like to tell you about is the Instant Reval Berry scrub. This is by far the best face scrub I have ever used, from the texture when rubbing it into your skin to the feel afterwards and the fragrance, it has it all. The antioxidant-rich scrub is fantastic, the berry seeds which are used for exfoliation smell amazing. To be honest, it's a pleasure to wash my face and I actually can not wait to use it, you definitely have the instant refreshing feeling afterwards. 
  • Fresh and fruity fragrance enlivens the senses.
  • Suitable for all skin types.
  • No added parabens. Sulphate-free.
  • Dermatologist tested.
Next up is a product I use every 3 days just after the berry scrub and it's the Soothing Aloe Cleanser. Once again another refreshing product which leaves my face feeling super clean and really soft. My skin is normally quite tough and dry so I think the aloe vera really leaves it feeling soft and moisturised. When I first started using this product I think I overdid it with the amount I used! I ended spending a lot of time rinsing it off because it lathers really well. It's another product which is a pleasure to use and look forward to using.  

  • Aloe vera-based cleanser with a fresh and gentle scent. Perfect for normal to dry skin.
  • Silky, soft lather gently removes excess oil, dirt and light makeup from the skin without irritation.
  • Aloe vera softens and moisturises the skin.
  • No added parabens. Sulphate-free.
  • Dermatologist tested.

Like I said above my skin is normally quite dry and I've noticed more since I shaved the beard off. More face was visible and it was clear I needed to moisturise more. This is where the daily glow moisturiser came in, It's an all-purpose hydrating lotion with illuminating properties which will give your face a nice glow. I noticed results using this product within about 5 days, I used it after my morning wash... which was normally around lunchtime when I finally got up and then I added a little bit later in the evening. I think I really helped to smooth out the smaller lines in my skin which in turn made my skin look a little bit younger. 
  • Helps diminish the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles in just 7 days.*
  • Clinically tested to show that skin looks more glowing and feels softer and smoother in just seven days.**
  • Clinically shown to double skin’s moisture for eight hours.***
  • No added parabens. Dermatologist tested.

I think the mix of the berry scrub, cleanser and then the moisturiser have worked wonders for me, they have brought life to my skin again and I still haven't used the night replenishing cream! Not that I can either! Because as soon as it arrived my wife took it and said she's having that! Having said that, she only has nice things to say I about it and uses it as her go-to night time moisturiser. 

This is the first unisex skincare product I've used and will carry on using. It also seems like a family favourite. I've had no issues like outbreaks since using it! I honestly have nothing negative to say and I hope all the stigma around Herbalife doesn't put people off trying out their products because they will not disappoint.

Looking After Yourself During Lockdown With Men-U

The market is absolutely flooded with men’s grooming products, from body wash to beard growth serum there is literally a product for everything. However, this is when the problem starts, the market gets saturated with poor products and it puts men who aren’t used to a skincare routine, off buying another one to try. Fortunately Carl and I have already done a lot of trialling for you, and there is one brand that always comes out on top. That brand is Men-U.


For those who are new to Men-U they were founded in the UK in 2001 that hold a vast range of products. Not only do they have a great range of products but they also come in various sizes. Meaning you don’t have to fill up your toiletries bag with huge bottles, their ‘buddy’ tubes are a great example. Compact 15ml tubes that pack 30 applications, and yes they really do have that many applications in them! A little definitely does a long way with these products.

So what can we recommend? Keep reading!

 

First off it has to be the black pepper and bergamot ultra-concentrate shower gel. This stuff smells unreal and the fragrance sticks around, lightly might I add. But this is what I love about this shower gel; it isn’t overpowering but leaves you smelling fresh and obviously… clean



Secondly, we have SLIC. This is a smooth leave-in conditioner; I have been using this as a pre-treatment before I jump in the shower. I put it on around 30 mins before and then rinse off. It is amazing how dry and damaged your hair and scalp can get. Use a product like this, even just once a week and your head will thank you.

 

Last but not least we have the ultra-concentrate shave cream. You are probably all thinking, it’s just another shaving cream to add to the long list. However, due to not shaving often and only lining up my beard I am quite prone to shaving rashes. I have tried many, only a few including this one help give a close enough shave but are gentle enough to help prevent razor burn.

 

I could honestly go on about Men-U’s line up forever. I was pretty much hooked when I first tried out their Ultra Matte moisturiser and it has been a product I have bought over and over again. A huge thanks to the team over at Men-U making for making this post possible and sending us some awesome products to try out. For me the buddy tubes are amazing, I am still amazed how little goes so far?



To say thank you to our readers the team over and Men-U have provided us with our very own discounts code. So head over to here and use discount code ABEV20 for a 20% discount– Don’t worry this isn’t an affiliate link either it is just some awesome discounts.
