Enliven Your Skin With Herbalife Radiant C Facial Scrub Cleanser

Up until last year the only way I had heard of Herbalife was through their advertising on football shirts and adorning the chest of David Beckham, but last summer I was sent two of their body products to review (read my review here) and I subsequently learnt that Herbalife wasn't just about nutritional supplements, it was also about providing nutrition on the outside with a skin and body care line.
A little while ago the lovely people at Immediate PR sent me one of their facial skin care products. Herbalife have a number of skincare lines, but this was a product from their Radiant C range.
As the name suggests this line is infused with a high concentration of Vitamin C, which can stimulate collagen production and contains antioxidants which can protect the skin. This range is ideal for all year round as it is designed to re-energise and brighten, dull and dehydrated skin.

The product I was sent was the Radiant C Facial Scrub Cleanser. Packaged in a150ml squeezy tube, this is a daily face wash which contains Vitamin C, real citrus fruit extracts, and Jojoba and Beeswax beads, to gently cleanse and purify the skin

The product itself dispenses easily through the flip top cap with just a gentle squeeze. It is bright orange in colour and features tiny little white spherical beads

It has quite a thick gel texture, but when you add it to water it creates a gentle foam, with the jojoba and beeswax beads just visible

I have to say at this point the smell really comes into its own - it smells incredible, just like slightly tart fresh orange juice- gorgeous and so zingy. To use the product I massaged the gel all over my face with water you do need quite a bit of water to thin the texture down, it gave a good through cleanse, but unusually for a lot of scrubs it wasn't abrasive you could feel a very gentle action, with no scratchiness or discomfort. Because of the thickness of the gel it did take a bit of rinsing but it left lovely properly clean, glowing skin :)
I have to say I really liked this product predominantly due to the amazing smell. This is a great morning cleanser, you could even use it in the shower, the smell is so invigorating it would really wake you up. If your into really abrasive scrubs then this probably isn't for you, but if you want to have gently cleansed super fresh feeling skin then this might be the one. My only minor complaint is the thickness / stickiness of the gel, it does take a little bit of effort to break it down into a foam and it takes quite a bit of rinsing off. Herbalife Radiant C Facial Scrub Cleanser retails at £17.65 for 150ml. For stockist details please call 08450560606 or check out the Herbalife website for more details. Any questions please ask x

  2. The radiant C facial scrub is an amazing product. One little comment to add, you only need to use the amount the size of a pea or at a push 2 peas :-)you can get it at

  3. This product is fantastic, and you do only need a little bit so it is easier to wash off....The radiant c skin booster...nick named 'silk in a tube' is also a great skin booster to use after the scrub....and it really is like silk in a tube...
    also sell at
    The whole range and more...

  4. As my daughter reached her teenage years, she developed a bit of a problem skin. Being very weary of letting her use skincare products that's been formulated for the adult skin, I had her use the Radiant C Facial Scrub Cleanser. It's a great product, gentle for the young skin. She loves the product and so does mommy!! Highly recommended !!

  5. I have used the Radiant C facial scrub every day for years! and my skin always looks and feels fantastic!
    The benefits are many because of the vitamin C in it. We lose vitamin C every day if we are exposed to pollutants like smoke, traffic fumes, alcohol and even computer screens! Harsh abrasive scrubs are not a good idea to use long term due to the damage they can cause by constantly scrubbing your face - might as well use a pan scourer for that! That's why I stick to this gentler Radiant C Gel instead. I only need a very small amount - about a pea size, wet it and spread on my face it especially on the T-zone on my nose and forehead and it does its job keeping my skin fresh and nourished. Radiant C Facial Scrub Cleanser is easy to apply and easy to wash off -and the tube will last for ages. Economic as well as effective! Smells delicious too!
