Nerium AD Age Defying Treatment Review
A couple of weeks ago I was approached to review a new skincare treatment called NeriumAD Age Defying Treatment. I turned 30 this year and although I don’t show huge aging signs, I do have some. My major skin issues (that I hate) are large pores, mild acne and dry patchiness. Not necessarily “aging issues” but issues nonetheless.
I was given a 5 day sample supply with an instruction booklet and some background on the company in general. NeriumAD was developed as a breakthrough product by Nerium International. Nerium International was founded as a result of advanced biotechnology research on the Nerium oleander plant. An accidental discovery was made when scientists realized that the unique properties of the oleander plant led to significant age-defying results with application to the skin. What came as a result was NeriumAD,a first-of-its-kind product with the patent-pending extraction process of the NAE-8 extract!
Clinical Trials of NeriumAD showed that skin ailments were drastically improved in the following areas:
Fine Lines and Wrinkles
Enlarged Pores (This is why I decided to try it!)
Uneven Skin Texture
Aging or Sun Damaged Skin
I have been testing out NeriumAD for 5 days and I will show you my Before and After photos that have not been altered in any way. My photos are straight from the camera to this post and they were only cropped/watermarked as usual with my photos (I don’t visually alter photos on my blog at all).
The first thing you will notice when using NeriumAD is the scent. The first packet I opened smelled like walking into a real flower shop. There was a mixture of floral scents as well as an herbally smell. Not horrible, but not exactly pleasant. NeriumAD is tan in color and you apply it to your face while your face is still moist. NeriumAD is a night cream so it will replace anything you currently use at night. You just wash your face off with cleanser & then apply one of the packets of NeriumAD each night. While your skin soaks in some of it, you leave it on like a sort of mask overnight (you can feel it, but it isn’t heavy). In the morning I simply rinsed it off and my skin felt smoother and I was able to use a lighter moisturizer than I normally do.
Now for the photos (I realize my eyebrows need to be done again, I haven’t had time recently. Also, the red “splotch” on my nose is from the pads of my glasses). It takes a lot for me to post photos of my skin with no makeup, especially this close up. I knew getting into beauty blogging that eventually this day would come though.
The biggest difference I noticed was that my pores weren’t as enlarged as they had been. As I stated before, I backed down to a lighter moisturizer than what I usually use and I didn’t need to exfoliate as often as I do (usually in a 5 day period I exfoliate 2-3 times, but while using NeriumAD I only exfoliated once). I liked the feel of the product, the scent takes a little getting use to though, after 10 minutes or so I forgot about it (my boyfriend however did not lol). I would like to revisit the product when I’m showing more signs of aging a little later down the line, but for now, the reduction in pore size made me quite happy.
Here are some results pictures that were provided to me:
