Nu Skin… everyone’s heard of it, some people love it and can’t get enough, others give it a bad review and even call it a ‘cult’ (yep)… So if you don’t know who to believe and haven’t made your mind up about ordering their products, I completely understand!
Like many of you, I’m pretty sceptical when it comes to cosmetic brands that use ‘multi-level marketing’ or ‘network marketing’ (and that aren’t available in shops*)… But after testing the Younique cosmetics, I changed my mind. It’s no secret that there are a lot of scams in this industry… so when I’m contacted about this type of product, I am careful to make sure the company is genuine.
So, if I’m telling you about Nu Skin today, that’s because I judge this company to be credible and effective!
The first thing that reassured me about Nu Skin’s credibility was the date the company was founded. It was launched in the USA in 1984, so it’s far from being a new company. The second was finding out the huge investments that this brand devotes to the research of its products (more than 75 scientists work for Nu Skin), to guarantee innovative products that meet the highest standards of quality. To avoid getting lost in scientific gibberish… put simply, OK, that’s good, that means we won’t use products on our skin that come from any old laboratory.
Nu Skin is best known for its anti-ageing cosmetics and technologies, like the ageLOC Galvanic Spa, but it also offers treatments suitable for all skin types and even makeup. I tested various Nu Skin products and I’ll give you my verdict on each of them in this article !
Nuskin Pharmanex Product Reviews
Pharmanex Tegreen is one of the most googled products from Nu Skin! And it should be! I was so convinced by this product that when I finished my first cleanse, I couldn’t wait to order it again and recommend it to others.
Essentially, this food supplement contains a green tea extract taken from its leaves which boosts our body’s natural defences by protecting our cells and tissues from oxidative stress caused by free radicals.
It’s hard to find a product with a greater concentration of antioxidants.
1 capsule = The benefits of 7 cups of green tea*
*I should point out that the concentration of caffeine is extremely low, each capsule is 99.5% caffeine-free
What are the main benefits of Tegreen capsules?
Powerful antioxidants that protect our cells from free radicals naturally present in our body or from pollution, stress, cigarette smoke and toxins.
Fights water retention. This is perfect for those of us with tired, heavy legs.
Helps digestion, aids elimination thanks to its draining properties and reduces bloating. Great the whole year round and even more effective during periods of excess such as the holiday season.
To sum up: Tegreen will help you to feel lighter, less bloated and simply full of vitality.
The quality really is exceptional : it has been compared many times to other commercially available green tea capsules. Other brands leave your body with a great deal more toxins to eliminate compared to Tegreen. Nu Skin’s green tea capsules are produced in Switzerland and are certified by the manufacturers to guarantee consistent quality.

Nuskin Pharmanex Lifepak
The Pharmanex LifePak is a comprehensive dietary supplement with important antioxidants, vitamins, minerals, and phytonutrients to support anti-aging benefits.
Pharmanex Lifepak anti-ageing, prenatal, and dietary supplements are purported to have nutritional benefits. Apparently, this is because it is scientifically tested and has well-researched ingredients.
It also claims it provides a comprehensive range of ingredients enhanced with antioxidants, vitamins, minerals, and phytonutrients. All these nutrients, in combination, provide a complete blend of nourishment within the supplement.
The company manufactures such products for all genders and ages, including men and women in the prime of their lives, menopausal and pregnant women, and sometimes teenagers.
The products are apparently developed by researchers that are skincare specialists, specifically skin-related supplements and the ingredients. Additionally, they claim their products have a lot of scientific data to back them up, and this is what some of the studies concerning the ingredients say:
Dermatologic Surgery: Zinc may be able to benefit skin health by decreasing inflammation and promoting wound healing.
Biomolecules & Therapeutics: Micronutrients can play an important role in promoting skin health.
Dermato Endocrinology: “Frequently researched antioxidants such as carotenoids, tocopherols and flavonoids, as well as vitamins (A, C, D and E), essential omega-3-fatty acids, some proteins and lactobacilli have been referred as agents capable of promoting skin health and beauty.”
Pharmanex Biophotonic Scanner
Originally developed to measure carotenoids in the eye for eye health diagnosis.
The scanner is the world’s first and only tool that measures carotenoid antioxidant levels non-invasively in living human tissue
Pharmanex, a subsidiary of Nuskin, purchased the technology approximately 15 years ago and has invested over $100 million in the development of the present day Biophotonic scanner.
Technology based on an optical method known as Resonance Raman Spectroscopy which has been used for many years in research laboratories
How It Works:
The scanner produces a narrow beam of light in which all the photons are the same color – blue. This blue light has a wavelength of 473 nanometers.
When a 473 nm photon of light comes into contact with a carotenoid, the photon begins to vibrate and becomes a 510 nm photon and turns green. The only molecule that can cause a 473 nm photon to shift to a 510 nm photon is a carotenoid.
Because the number of green photons reflected back to the scanner is directly proportional to the concentration of carotenoids in the skin, they are counted to create an accurate Scanner Carotenoid Score (SCS).
The SCS is more accurate than blood serum test because carotenoid levels measured in the blood can change rapidly if one ingests foods high in carotenoids, while the outer layer of skin stratum scan is reading levels derived from consumption many weeks prior.
Individual genetic differences can slightly influence the rate of antioxidant absorption and therefore your personal Skin Carotenoid Score.

- Low consumption of fruits and vegetables.
- Irregular or no supplementation OR poor absorption of current supplement regimen.

- Medium BMI 24-27
- Moderate Stress
- Moderate sun or pollution exposure
- High score: 50,000 +

All Pharmanex products adhere to a very strict 6S Quality Process. It is this 6S process that separates Pharmanex from all others in the industry.
Lifepak Nano Product
Provides your body with a comprehensive antioxidant, vitamin, and mineral blend with phytonutrients essential for optimal health. Fat-soluble nutrients like carotenoids and CoQ10 tend to bunch together in the intestine, making them difficult to absorb. To enhance absorbability, individual molecules are separated using nano-encapsulation. This process prevents molecules from clinging together so they are more available for easy absorption.
CR-6 Lipo Nutrients are separated in packaging: Omega-3s, vitamins, and carotenoids protect and nourish cells.
200,000 published studies on the antioxidants in Nano formula.
800,000 published studies on Nano’s comprehensive list of 60-plus ingredients.
