This is a review of the Nerium AD cream.
“During advanced research on the uses of the Nerium oleander plant, an accidental discovery was made: the unique properties of Nerium oleander provided remarkable age-defying results when applied to the skin. This finding led to the formation of Nerium International and the creation of the NeriumAD skincare line.
Nerium scientists developed a breakthrough process, NBio-PL2, to derive an extract from the Nerium oleander plant in a way that preserves its unique and beneficial properties. This patented extraction process yields the NAE-8 extract, with powerful antioxidant properties, used to formulate the first-of-its-kind, age-defying Nerium product line.
Nerium International is the first company with the exclusive capability to harness the power of the Nerium oleander plant in its skincare products. The product line addresses multiple concerns at once, including: wrinkles, discoloration, and texture. Nerium controls this main active ingredient from seed to bottle, making the Nerium skincare line both high-impact and innovative. This is the Nerium Difference.”

My Description & Thoughts:
I have to be honest–I was very excited about this product. That excitement quickly fizzled out as I started to read the ingredient list. Nothing turns me off quicker than reading through a list of ingredients that are wildly unrecognizable.
Nerium provides a list of ingredients they do not use, which in theory is great. In reality, the ingredients that ARE in the product are not organic, nor do they appear to be plant based. Efforts to omit harmful ingredients are always a good thing, so I will credit Nerium for that.
There are certain things that I seek in a skin care product, and unfortunately this product does not have those characteristics. I wish I could earnestly say otherwise.
If I were to make statements based upon the performance of the product alone, I’d say that it does what it says it does: improves texture and tone of skin, at least temporarily. I used this night cream for 5 consecutive days, as recommended, and witnessed a slight positive change in my skin.
Truthfully, I believe I have been spoiled by entirely organic skin care products that, in a way, have “ruined” me for products like this that fall short.
I’d have a harm time recommending this product to anyone because I could not defend most of the ingredients and why they are used. Those that want performance without regard for ingredients might be interested in this product.
