Wait, NeriumAD is Ideal for ALL Skin Types?
Yes! Nerium Skincare™, the company behind the production of NeriumAD, are experts regarding various skin types and how each person’s skin is unique. There are many factors to one’s skin such as diet, heredity, sun exposure, color, etc. Ethnicity is another major factor to how one’s skin responds to aging, especially sun-related aging.
When it came to formulating the NeriumAD Age-Defying Treatment product, Nerium Skincare ensured to address the signs of aging common for every skin type and demographic. This is why third-party clinical trials were conducted extensively across a wide range of ethnicities and skin types.
How Do You Use the NeriumAD Age-Defying Treatment?
After cleansing your face thoroughly, apply 4 to 5 pumps of the night cream to your face and neck. Make sure to apply it to your skin while it is damp. As it dries to your skin, you will feel a slight tightening sensation, much like a facial mask that you get at the spa.
In the morning, simply rinse your face and neck with warm water.
Nerium AD – My Personal Review
When I was first approach about using NeriumAD, I had no true desire. However, after seeing several before and after pictures of current users, as well as my own friends, I decided to give it a try.
Besides the beginning stages of some fine lines and wrinkles on my face, I also had the typiclal ‘T-zone’ on my face. Meaning my skin was oily across my forehead and down my nose. To add to that, my skin was also incredibly dry around my mouth and jaw area. So dry that it felt like it was chafed quite a bit making me have to use moisturizer continuously throughout the day.
I applied Nerium to my face and neck per the instructions on the bottle. When I woke in the morning and rinsed the treatment off my skin, I instantly noticed how incredibly soft my skin was. However, considering I had just rinsed the product of my skin, I expected the softness to decrease as the day progressed. To my surprise, my skin remained soft throughout the entire day. Not to mention, not once did my skin feel dry and I didn’t have to apply moisturizer.
I think that alone made me pretty darn giddy. After a few weeks, I noticed that the lines on my forehead appeared to have decreased in both length and depth. I mean, they didn’t appear to have disappeared altogether, but I definitely noticed a reduction in depth. Especially the gnarly crease I have between my eyes. That was my own personal national treasure that could give the Grand Canyon a run for its money!
I never realized how hard it was to take before and after pictures. I swear, trying to take close up pictures that don’t turn out blurry is rather frustrating. So the before and after picture of my forehead (left = before, right = after) is after a few weeks using it consistently every night and without any sort of makeup.
Here’s what I liked best:
- The tightening effect
- The product’s texture
- It’s one single product, not an entire ‘system’ of various steps of products
- Helped reduce my skin’s dryness
- Helped reduce the appearance of my fine lines
- 30 day money back guarantee
Here’s what I didn’t like:
- The smell (at first)
- The cost
There really was only two things that I didn’t like about the product. Both of which have since been rectified. First the smell…only at first I didn’t like it. It did take me about a week to get used to it. Though I still smell it when I first put it on, it’s not nearly as noticeable and once it’s dry, I don’t notice it at all.
Secondly, the cost. If you get it retail, it will cost you $110. Preferred Customers on an automatic-delivery-order or ADO get it for $80. So, at first I thought the price was a bit steep, but then realized that with this ONE product I can solve many issues that previously required me to purchase various products. Additionally, Nerium International has a great program called ‘3UR Free’ which allows for Preferred Customers AND Brand Partners alike to get their NeriumAD for free.
This is why I love this product and probably the main reason I became a Nerium Brand Partner!
