#NeriumAD Final update on our results!

nerium-jl-2

Well our 90 Days Real Results test with NeriumAD has finally come to an end, and I couldn’t be happier with the results! Erin and I took the challenge to use Nerium AD for 90 days – and monitor our progress in three separate posts. (You can read the first post here, and the second here.) As part of the challenge, we were asked to use Nerium twice a day, and share our thoughts on our journey.

About Nerium International:
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.

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.

Jocelyn: My 90 days Results

Here is my (Jocelyn) before and after pictures. I am and always have been a HUGE skeptic when it comes to before and after photos. A lot of times the difference is subtle, if any. I compared my own before and after pictures, and I have to say, even I’m surprised! The most noticeable difference I found in my skin after using Nerium skincare is my pores are visibly smaller, and the tone/color of my skin is more even. I didn’t photoshop these pics, they came straight off my phone! (Although I should have photoshopped them, it looks like I have a mustache!? WTH.)

As you can see from the pictures, the tone of my skin has clearly changed. The appearance of pores has improved they look smaller, less visible. I have crows feet, and I love how Nerium has improved the appearance of  the crows feet the skin looks firmer and smoother . I think I’m a believer!

Erin: My 90 days Results

I am shocked and delighted to see what a difference 90 days with Nerium can make. At 36 years old I can definitely see the signs of aging creeping in larger pores, crows feet, dull skin tone and wiggly neck skin. When Jocelyn and I were offered the chance to do a 90 day challenge with Nerium I was cautiously optimistic hoping it might make a bit of improvement. Nerium has far surpassed my hopes, the appearance of my overall skin tone and texture has drastically improved   And as you can see from the photos below how big a change just 3 months made.

How fun are these before photos? Uh yeah not fun at all it feels wrong posting them but how else can I share just how great Nerium works? I have no makeup in the photos and did not use any photo shop or filters. You can clearly see from my before and after photos, the texture, tone and firmness of my skin has improved dramatically. One of the biggest changes was around my eyes. I laugh a lot which is a good thing except where wrinkles are concerned all my bouts of laughter have left me with some serious crows feet. But with Nerium AD the skin around my eyes looks firmer and smoother.

If you are ready to try a breakthrough formula that can improve the look and feel of your skin join the Nerium 90-Day Real Results Challenge.

Get The Look: Amy Adams at the 2014 Golden Globes

71st Annual Golden Globe Awards - Arrivals

Amy looked beautiful last night she just gets better with age. Check out how to recreate her Golden Globes 70′s Inspired look.

Amy Adams 2014 Golden Globe Awards
Look by Stephen Sollitto for Laura Mercier

Makeup artist Stephen Sollitto created a “chic” 1970s-inspired makeup look for Adams, who won the Golden Globe for “Best Actress (Musical or Comedy)” for her role as Sydney Prosser in “American Hustle.”

Sollitto stated, “This whole season, in a nod to Amy’s movie ‘American Hustle,’ we have been inspired by the ‘70s. With their fantastic smiles, healthy glows and brushed out hair, we have kept the decade’s style in mind for each look.”

FACE: Flawless, bronzed, glowing skin was the focus of the look

  • Sollitto began prepping Adams’ skin the evening before the Globes, instructing the actress to apply RéVive Moisturizing Renewal Cream Retexturizing Hydrator, ($195) and RéVive Moisturizing Renewal Eye Cream Ultra Retexturizing Hydrator, ($140) after cleansing her skin.
  • The day of the awards, Sollitto applied the NEW Laura Mercier Smooth Finish Flawless Fluide (COMING FALL 2014) all over Adams’ face. Sollitto stated, “This foundation goes on easily but the finish is very polished. It’s long wearing, oil free and lightweight. The best thing is that is gives you a matte finish so you don’t have to dust your face with loose powder. It’s built in, simple and genius.”
  •  To “catapult” the look into the ‘70s, Sollitto applied a light dusting of Laura Mercier Bronzing Pressed Powder in Matte Bronze, ($32).
  • He achieved the “perfect glow” by applying Laura Mercier Crème Cheek Colour in Praline, ($24) to Adams’ cheeks using his fingers.

LIPS: “Nudish orange” lips supported the star’s “bronzy glow”

  •  Sollitto applied a mixture of Laura Mercier Crème Lip Colour in Discretion and Tangerine, ($24/each) because the customized shade “supported Adams’ bronzy glow, but didn’t compete with it for attention.”

EYES: Neutral eyes that “pop”

  • First, Sollitto created a modern neutral base by applying Laura Mercier Baked Eye Colour in Ballet Pink, ($23) all over Adams’ lids.
  • Next, he brushed Laura Mercier Baked Eye Colour in Terracotta, ($23) into Adams’ lash line and lid, and sweeping it out at the corners of her eyes and under her bottom lashes.
  • To make Adams’ eyes “pop,” he applied Laura Mercier Caviar Eye Stick Colour in Plum, ($26) to her upper lash line and the outer corner of her lower lash line.
  • He then applied Dior Diorshow Blackout Mascara ($25) to her upper and lower lashes.
  • Sollitto finished the look by dotting Laura Mercier Caviar Eye Stick Colour in Sugar Frost, ($26) to the corners of the Adams’ eyes.
