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:

***The Product in this post was sent to me for review.  All opinions are honest as well as my own***

  1. As someone who has done a few skincare product reviews, I think the toughest part can be not using the product, but being willing to show off my face that close up! (I’m older than you)
    I think you did an awesome job! I can see that it did do something, and makes it look like the might be worth the price tag. And has me very interested in seeing how it might work for me. Thanks for doing such an awesome review, and I do hope to see more soon!!

    • Thank you so much Kim! That really helps ease my nerves on posting this! <3

  2. I’m 46 and if those other photos provided to you are even halfway accurate, I might be tempted to try it. I did see a difference in your photo, which I actually trust (unlike before and after shots the companies put out.) Thanks so much for the review!!!

    • I was told the company photos are accurate, but of course I can only vouch “true results” guaranteed on my personal photos.

      My pleasure :) Glad you liked it!

  3. I’m on my 3rd day, we will see what happens. I am one of the biggest skeptics of all!! I have an identical twin sister, and told her we cant see each other for at least a month. If she can see a difference, I’m in!!

    read “Paula’s choice” the orleander is a toxic flower. It may not be good to put something toxic on the face. I am exploring this product more before using it.

    • Angelica Galland Reply

      they have done safety testing on the product because of all the toxicity claims. if you would go to their website and check out the science you will see several prominent experts in the toxicology field reporting that it is SAFE.

  5. Tonite is my first night for my 5 day experiment. Put it on my washed face while still damp…skin feels tighter, hope it works a miracle although I don’t have major issues, I’m turning 34, have some lines on my forehead, puffy eyes, and large pores. I hope it works let you know in 5 days. Thanks, Nicole

  6. The smell is horrid! I have been using this for 7 weeks and there has been no change. Scam!

  7. I have try everything for my face,I need help with uneven lines,wrinkle,crow feet and lip lines. The bottle is expensive, where can I find in the store? I am 54 yrs old and Dr[dermology] well,I asked her what to do about wrinkles and she said what wrinkles? It seem noone can help me!! pray for wrinkle go away!!

  8. Hey people! If you really want to advertise your product, you should do at least more professional Before and After pictures. I can tell imminently there is no differences between the skin, it just little photography knowledge of lighting, camera setting and /or photo editing! I think it’s scam and I won’t surprise if my message will disappear.

    • I never delete comments unless they have offensive language in it. You are entitled to your opinion, as is everyone else on here. I used it, I do not sell it or profit in any way from it, but it did make a slight difference in my skin, as I said in my review.

    • Kate most people are submitting pics they have taken themselves with their phones. I know I had to take about 80 pics to get some that had the same lighting, distance, etc. Professional photos as you say can be doctored.

  9. i just started last night. Can we put this under our eyes or just to the top of the cheek line (about 1 inch below eyes) Wasnt too sure about that, pls let me know. thx

    • Hi Ana,

      I would recommend about an inch below the eye! Since you leave it on over night you wouldn’t want to possibly have it go into your eye or anything. Hope it goes well for you!

    • Ana I actually use it very close to my eyes and on my eyelids. Some people have had a sensitivity to using it that close but most have not.

    I want to make sure that there is no interaction with other products and have been told to stay away from ingredients like kojic acid, glycol, salicylic acid, vitamin A and C, retinoid, retina A .. many of these ingredients are brightening agents and actually help. I wish end-users would share what brand of products they are using during the day to get the positive results so people can have a good idea on the investment costs. I look forward to your feedback.

    I want to start by saying that I do not sell Nerium, I am not a brand partner etc. I am 39 and have what I consider mild wrinkles by my eyes and deeper ones on my forehead. I am very prone to nasty acne and my skin is greasy and prone to clogged pores and looking dull. I have used Nerium for 6 months now and there is definitely a huge difference in my pore size and this has given my face a smoother and brighter appearance. I have at least a 70% reduction in acne flare ups and have had a little drying which I combatted during the day with a moisturizer. My neck certainly looked improved, tighter and smoother but I didn’t notice a significant lifting or wrinkle reduction on my face at all. I did notice some other things that have been quite cool… It really helps sunburn, the redness goes and the skin feels soothed instantly. I haven’t had a cold sore either and I get them at least 4 or 5 times a year and I get them bad. I feel the tingle but the worst outbreak this year was some swelling on my lip… The blisters never appeared. May be coincidence but I have been cursed with them for 20 years and now I’m not anymore. So… There is an honest review. I think if you expect a miracle in a bottle you will be disappointed and I do wish my wrinkles had smoothed out more but I have seen a significant improvement and will continue to use it.

  17. I can pay $60 at Ulta for diamond dermabrasion once a month… i’ll stick with that :)

  18. Typically I wouldn’t understand post upon blogs and forums, however I wish to claim that this particular write-up extremely pushed me personally to think about in addition to do this! Your current way of writing have been astonished everyone. Appreciate it, pleasant article.

    • seems so drying.. More wrinkles going up my cheek since sung color two weeks.. Also, it makes the nerves in my mouth start to twitch. Not sure I want to continue.. Anyone else have similar problems? Causes rash on my chin. Disappointing!

  19. Very thoughtful read. John and Donna, you should have your own blog. Well written. And beth (RN). I research face stuff often. I love cosmetics and good skin care. I have struggled with breakouts since I was 13. I am now 43. I have found that the best thing for skin is daily care. Stay out of the sun. Exfoliate and moisturize. If you are sensitive and fair, you probably need very natural, organic and fragrance free products. Be wise, and open if you are searching for the right thing. If it causes breakouts and irritation or worse-a rash, don’t use it. Lastly, if you are happy with what you are using, why change it? Say “no thank you” and move on. Be responsible for your own decisions, don’t judge.

  20. I have just finished my five day trial and I cannot wait for my product to arrive now! I was super sceptical, being 54 yrs old and having tried so many different products. I took a picture on day one and really didn’t notice a difference until looking at my picture tonight, wow!! I do, however, worry about what happens if I stop using it….does my face fall like the body builders who retire? Lol the things we worry about when we grow older huh?

  21. I’ve been using Nerium for about a week and a half. I’ve been suffering from headaches but not sure if they are associated with its use. Just curious to see if anyone else has experienced this as well. Could just be a coincidence.

  32. Once you find a mask you like, you should stick with it.
    There are compromises, including acoustic panels designed to look like pieces of art, and
    using things such as wall-hanging rugs can be
    surprisingly effective, but it remains the case that the ideal solution acoustically is not the ideal solution aesthetically.
    If I ever found a product that was sticky or smelly I would never use
    it again, but then I started hearing more and more about another issue – dangerous personal care
    products so I started researching.
