Citrus Gel Cleanser to Take Care of Oily Skin

SKIN Polishing Citrus Cleanser 150ml

Herbalife polishing citrus cleanser can be your perfect cleanser for oily skin. Even for those who have a sensitive skin type prone to irritation. Oily skin needs care that will help to restore its balance, eliminate oily shine and prevent imperfections.

With this gel, there is no irritation—just deep cleansing without redness on your face. There is no need to be afraid of scrubbing particles – there are not many of them, and they are soft; they do not scratch the delicate skin around the eyes.

It doesn’t leave a tightening film after washing, but it doesn’t squeak either. It means that you are not removing the natural oily layer from the skin. Although, if you need to, you can use a stiff sponge for a squeaky face. There is an absolute feeling of clean and breathable skin. Please read my review to know how to use it correctly.

Consistency and fragrance

The consistency of the citrus gel cleanser is thick viscous with slight green inclusions – jojoba granules. The dispenser is handy because when you press the tube, it releases precisely the amount of gel needed.

The smell, and not surprisingly, is citrusy, light, and refreshing. The gel is pleasant to use in the morning. Many people have noted that they like the smell of the gel – it is citrus, more like lime than lemon. The fragrance is refreshing and peppy in the morning and even raises the mood.

The aromas of herbal drink (Herbalife tea) and citrus fruits are always associated with an excellent start to the day! The gel is suitable for evening skincare as well.

How to use citrus gel cleanser?

how to use citrus gel cleanser

Massage gently into wet skin with circular motions. Rinse off with lukewarm water. Then apply toning lotion, anti-aging serum, and moisturizer to dry skin. Use during the day and evening.

You can also do the following. Remove makeup from the eyes with micellar water. Then wash your face with SKIN Polishing Citrus Cleanser without touching the skin around the eyes. The gel contains exfoliating granules, which are pretty hard and dense and may not suit delicate eye skin.

You can apply the product to a wet sponge for washing, lathering up, and cleansing your face.

Apply your usual skincare routine to clean skin. After this cleansing gel several times a week, you can use a berry scrub for instant skin repair from the same Herbalife skin care products line. (Herbalife announced the public launch of its skin care line Herbalife SKIN in 2014.)

What else is good about it?

The gel perfectly fulfills its primary function: cleansing the skin. By the way, even this seems to be self-evident, not every cleanser can do it. Plus, thanks to the jojoba granules in the gel, it simultaneously exfoliates dead cells, a light scrub.

Citrus extracts in the gel tone the skin and even out skin tone.

The gel does not provoke inflammation or irritation. It feels like you’re using a facial scrub but with fewer exfoliating particles.

Is it suitable for dry skin?

SKIN cleanser gel is not suitable for dry or very sensitive skin. Even for normal skin, some people should use it with caution, or not daily. If you have dry and delicate skin, you are better off getting yourself another product. Herbalife Aloe Vera gel, for example, will suit everyone.

The price may seem high to someone, but considering the large volume of 150ml, I think it is quite justified.

Conclusion, Feelings, Results

It needs very little gel to wash your entire face, and it is economical. You get the effect of clean skin. It cleans skin “until it squeaks” if you use the sponge. No mercy for oily secretions!

It rinses off makeup well. This cleansing makes the face skin tight; after washing, you should apply the cream. But after you have applied the cream, the feeling of tightness completely disappears. There is no peeling or irritation. You can use it both in the morning and in the evening.
