This product was given to me by a sales lady to test. The product dried my skin. My skin look dull.
I work for a plastic surgeon, who told me this product isn't safe. He said the active ingredient is poison. So I stop using it after 3 days.
Also I never get breakouts but this product cause me to breakout a little.
If you dislike the product for whatever reason, that's fine. But to make slanderous statements and claim that they're facts, just sets you up to look ignorant.
Acetone...seriously? Why would they put acetone in this product? What would be the benefit of that? People...really...find the facts out before you spew nonsense. There is no acetone in this product. Everything in it is natural!
And Botox...really? So your willing to spend more on something you have to keep going back for and knowingly injecting poison into your skin. Ummm...okay. Not me! I don't want anything injected in my skin that is not naturally suppose to be there. Full disclosure...I hate needles too!
Dermatologists, salons and spas are starting to offer this product. They are not morons for introducing it to their clients...it's amazing and it works. If any of their clients sign up to auto-ship, they actually receive residual income off of those sign ups. Additionally, Nerium has been scientifically and clinically proven to yield results of 30%-55%. Whereas, the products that are sitting on those counters in the department stores that you want to believe are more trusted will only yield 2%-7% results based on their clinical trials. Those that do get this kind of intensive testing are being done at the same testing center that Nerium has been tested in. Several of those products don't even get tested this way, many of them just do focus groups which are not based on science or clinicals. So beware when touting only what you have been told by the hired sales person. The founders chose to go this route in order to not have to dilute the product with water or cheap fillers.
Not every product is going to work on every person. Especially when dealing in natural ingredients. You will always have some that may react adversely to any number of ingredients...a little perspective please.
Finally, not all MLM companies are created equal. While there have been many that have conducted themselves in a shady manner, there are tons that are respectable. Avon was the very first direct marketing company ever and it started over 100 years ago. Mary Kay, Amway, AdvoCare, Avon, etc are just a few. All of which are tried and true MLM's and are respected across all industries. Nerium has not only updated this vehicle but gives so much back in charity and products. Did you know that they give 30% of their profits(unheard of) back to cancer, heart disease, diabetes, auto-immune, HIV research, among many other ailments. They also just recently knocked off Nike as the top monetary donations and volunteerism for the Big Brother/Big Sisters organization. Additionally, they do not require their partners to buy hundreds of dollars of monthly inventory. In fact they give their partners and even their customers FREE product! So consequently, they restock their partners' inventory for free. They have given over $10 million dollars in free product to the partners and customers over a two year period of being in business. They have also made over $300 Million in sales on the night cream alone. That says a lot...you can't have that kind of sales success with one product, in the U.S. only if it's not producing what it says it does.
Know your facts. Research for yourself. Don't just blindly follow the uninformed few. The unknown doesn't automatically mean we should fear it. Try something new, it may just change the way you look, feel and live...in a good way! :)
I have tried NeriumAD through a trial period after going to a party through a friend who entered the business. I have a skeptical frame of mind going to ANY party that totes such good reports about a new product. (There are so many skin care products, it makes your head spin!) Anyway, I was interested in giving this stuff a shot for my friend's sake. I followed the instructions and used it for about 5 days. I used both the night cream as well as the day cream. The night cream had a very botanical smell to it (that is expected I guess, it is plant based). I definitely liked the products! The night cream did tighten everything and the day cream made my face feel very good. It seemed to "Perk UP" my face a bit just by using it those 5 days. ANYONE can have a sensitivity/reaction to ANY ingredient in ANY skin care product, but I didn't have any problems with it at all. So sorry for the folks who dogged NeriumAD due to the reactions they had. No product is perfect for Everyone, All the Time! and for pushy saleswomen, that wasn't the case either for me. Energetic about the product, yes, but not pushy. I have started using the product now. I like that it is plant and evidence based with hard research to back it up. I also like the fact that its origin came from research in treatments for things such as Cancer....Quite Noble I think! Okay, so it doesn't work for Everyone....Nothing does! I will say that this is the closest anti-ageing cream I know of to Nature. I support that. No Botox for me thank you! I know if I hadn't liked the product, I wouldn't be pushed toward selling it either. I think the person I read a review on earlier had one of those minority folks who went beyond being professional to greety. Yes they want to sell product, but not at the expense of the client with obvious skin reactions. thanks. I will continue to use this product. For the price, it is pretty competitive with other brands that brag similar claims. 2 creams. thats it. I can handle That beauty regimen....I don't like 4-5 step products/regimens. This is right for me. anyway.
I will stick with Botox! Costs less and works which is fact! I'm sure this product may work for some but not at all for me. Women who look like they had a facelift, to good to be true. Auto ship products are usually a scam. Can't say this is but can say it did nothing for me but caused breakouts (I never breakout). If this product is seen on a store shelf I would have more faith in it. If you are looking for a good face product visit Sephora , they carry the best products. No auto ship and far cheaper then the $100 + per month for night and day cream. I believe that there is no cure for skin aging other then medical procedures or injections, sorry but it is fact.
I have used about 2 weeks. My skin got more wrinkles and dried patch. Friend of mine told me she threw away all her skin care because Nerium worked very good. But think about it. Just one product replace all skin care? No way. Also I did not like she kept asking me find at least 3 preferred customers. I cancelled auto ship ANC returning my first bottle tomorrow. Hopefully they refund me. I saw before and after pictures on their website so I guess works some people but not me. I went back to shiseido to repair messed up my skin with Nerium. Never again.
I love the product! I am a yoga instructor and have always been concerned about what I put in and on my body. I learned about the product from my dermatologist who told me the main ingredient is actually patented as an anti-oxidant. Some of my friends believe in using botox (something I will never do!) and find they like Nerium because they use it in between getting their botox-type shots.(apparently there are now different types...) I don't have a problem with direct sales companies (several friends and family members sell or sold Avon, Cabi, different jewelry lines, etc.) I did ask about getting it through Amazon and I was told that the company only guarantees the product and results if it is direct from them. (I have visions of some guy in Florida with a trunk full of over-heated products!!) I did share with my friends- just forwarded a video that I had been sent. One tried it for a month and cancelled her order from her webpage because she wanted to keep using her acne medicine. Four other friends are on their second month- I am on my fifth. I use coconut oil on my body and the Nerium day and night cream on my face.
I tried Nerium AD for a few weeks after being "given" a bottle from a person who sells Nerium. Besides being hounded almost daily after accepting the "gift" my skin became very sallow and dull looking. My face was also very itchy, and I felt like I had wax on my face... like I had just been through a facial paraffin dip. And then the bumps started... all over my face. Tiny, itchy, fluid-filled bumps. The kicker was the smell. The smell was that of which I had never smelled before and DO NOT wish to smell again. I finally had to break the news to the incredibly aggressive representative of the company that Nerium wasn't for me, nor was it ever going to be. That is when she started in with how much money I could make off of the sales of Nerium, and started pressuring me in that direction. It became apparent to me that this was not about excellent skin care, didn't care a lick about my skin disaster that had occured from using Nerium, but instead was all about jumping on the multi level marketing pyramid quickly enough. Yeah... I am really not interested in a Lexus... thanks. I do want great skin though. I am back to using my old skin care regimen, and I am seeing results from it like never before. Anything, and I do mean anything is better than Nerium.
Now, to the reviewer that stated her Dr. suggested Nerium AD to her and made the statement that it was working better than Photofacial... I cannot imagine why a Dr. would shoot themselves in the foot like that. Take a chance on selling a product to a patient that auto-ships to their door so they never set foot in your clinic again... ? and now they don't want Photofacial - which is a procedure that brings in a TON of money and repeat visits? I am not saying that did not happen... I am just saying, no Doctor would say or do such a thing. Additionally, I do not know of one Dermatologist that has Nerium in their practice. Use your heads, people. This is a scam.
BUYER BEWARE! DO NOT USE! I have never had to run to my computer so fast to write a review. I have used this product just two times (last night and for a hot minute tonight). My first evening using it, my skin felt dry after application, but not dry enough to be a concern. I woke up with matte skin and a reduction in the darkness of my scabby scars ~ I'm a picker :-( ~ which was nice. The following evening, simply 2 hours after applying it, my skin became EXTREMELY irritated and itchy. I found I had broken out with vicious tiny pimples and one massive cystic pimple!! My typical skin care products are Cerave Hydrating cleanser, Clarisonic, Argan Oil, and Alpha Beta Peel Pads but hadn't used the pads that day so as not to react with the Nerium, so I am confident it was the Nerium that reacted. So after researching the product (of course AFTER I slathered it on my face -_-), I found its all part of a huge Multi Level Marketing scam, comes from a crappy poisonous plant that grows all over the Southwest, and is rumored to have terrifying ingredients such as acetone (in the NAE-8 special complex or whatever)! Also, MANY REPORTS OF HYPERPIGMENTATION HAVE BEEN REPORTED IN CORRELATION TO USE OF THIS PRODUCT. I would never recommend a product this unsafe to a friend. Please, do your research.
I detest that I had to give this product even one single lippie.
Do not purchase!!!! This product is simply the worst! I so regret using it, it made my skin bad! I got bad acne and got brown spots all over my cheek area! They said continue to use the product so I did out of being desperate! Again regret I stopped completely!!! I feel like Nerium made my skin worse...
First, in all fairness, I am using Nerium AD in conjunction with Kanebo Ultimate. But after just a short time of using Nerium, my skin looks firmer and the pesky wrinkles around my mouth and jawline are noticeably less visible The Nerium ingredients are synergistic with Ultimate (I checked with my derm). Also contacted a Nerium advisor who did some research and got back to me and said the combo was fine, too. I think the last reviewer lilpantherpaw got all the necessary information on Nerium clarified in her excellent review, so I will just add that, I agree, this stuff is GREAT when used as directed! It tightens your skin overnight so in the AM it looks really firm and lineless. Nonetheless, I despise MLM marketing totally and I don't sell this product. Despite the way they market, this stuff is worth it! Definitely a keeper and I will buy it again. However, I took off one star for the MLM.
