If you've previously read many of my skin care posts, you know that the condition of my skin is something I regard highly, yet am not quite happy with. I have always been very fair-skinned and unfortunately, sun care wasn't something I practiced until well into my 20's. I also tend to suffer from fairly regular acne flareups, which is a real downer...especially since I'm now 35 years old!
My bathroom counter is littered with every possible skin care product you can imagine and in the 20+ years that I've spent washing and moisturizing my skin, I think I've literally tried almost every major skin care product on the market. This is why I was thoroughly intrigued to learn of Nerium.
This age-defying skin treatment sounded like all of the others I've tried before, except for one thing. I was told that IT WILL WORK, maybe even in as little as 5 days. WHAT? That's impossible, I thought. So when I was offered a free bottle of NeriumAD to try for myself, how could a skin care maven like me refuse? Keep reading to learn more!
Nerium - An Age-Old Solution That Delivers Real Results
Use of the Nerium oleander plant has been identified in ancient texts and folklore for more than 1,500 years. But it wasn’t until the last century that the scientific community took interest in researching its unique properties. Most recently, scientists in Turkey, Switzerland, Germany, Latin America, and the United States have worked to understand the beneficial qualities found exclusively in the Nerium oleander plant.
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 creation of the NeriumAD skincare line.
I so wish I would have remembered to take before pictures of my face almost four weeks ago when I started using Nerium, for I've had terrific results so far. Being 35 years old, fair skinned and with occasional acne flareups, Nerium had a lot to try and correct.
There are fine lines around the corners of my eyes, on my forehead and in between my eyes as well as rather deep laugh lines around my mouth. I also have a patch of skin on my cheek which is acne prone and rampant sun damage all over my face. Pretty picture, huh?
Well, I was psyched by the proclamation that the question was not whether Nerium would work, it was when it would work. Some folks apparently start to see visible results in as little as five days. I didn't have that experience, but I will say that towards the end of my second week of using NeriumAD, I began to believe.
The lines around my mouth are definitely softening and I'm pretty sure that there aren't as many around my eyes and forehead as there once was. This is awesome, but for me, Nerium delivered even better results than I expected. My sun damaged skin has been greatly improved. In just a few weeks, I've begun to see my overall skin color even out. I no longer have those dark blotches of freckles and other hyperpigmentation marks. They are lightening every day...a lot!
I've never seen this type of quick results with any skin care product I've used in the past. I used a hydroquinone based lotion for over six months before and never saw the dramatic lightening effect I've noticed with NeriumAD. What's more, my acne has even improved! At first, I broke out pretty badly after a week or so of using Nerium, but this was to be expected. Any time you change skin care products, your skin will get worse before it begins to get better. Thankfully, I've had that experience before and knew to just ride it out. Now that my skin has cleared, I haven't had one singular flareup since and I couldn't be happier!

Applying NeriumAD is super easy as the video above demonstrates. Just clean your face regularly and then mist your skin with water. NeriumAD works best when your face is slightly damp, so make sure not to forget this step. Then go to bed and when you wake up in the morning, don't clean your face again. Just rinse it with water, apply your normal morning moisturizer and sunscreen and then your makeup, if necessary. Follow these steps and you'll see brighter, more youthful skin before you know it!
Disclosure: I received a bottle of NeriumAD from Nerium International in order to facilitate my review. No other compensation was received. This product review is based on my own personal experiences with this item and is completely honest and objective.
