Review: Nerium Firm Body Contouring Cream

51htPlN6lgL._SL1500_

Summer is here and that means shorts, dresses, swimsuits and lots of skin peeking out. After 3 kids and sliding down the backside  of my 30’s I have noticed my skin is just not where I want to be. Jocelyn and I both loved Nerium AD and I was excited to try out their newest launch Nerium Firm.

As I wanted to see the quickest results I  decided to use the cream  in the morning and at ngiht.  I focused on my legs from knee to hip which is one of my biggest trouble areas. It doesn’t take too much cream as a little goes a long way and it absorbs quickly leaving my skin feeling soft and smooth.

I just finished my third week of treatment and I can really see the results. After just a few weeks my skin is definitely firmer but the best part is there are less bumps and dimples and my skin is much smoother overall. Now ladies don’t expect to use this cream and get the skin of an 18 year old overnight. But if you want smoother, firmer skin this really is a great product. I am very happy with the difference so far and excited to see continued improvement.

 

NeriumFirm $98
A scientific breakthrough holds the answers to looking toned and smooth all year long. Following the historical success of the NeriumAD age-defying skincare line, Nerium International presents NeriumFirm Body Contouring Cream!

NeriumFirm is a skin-tightening cream developed from the patented NAE-8 extract of the Nerium oleander plant. Its powerful antioxidant formulation has been clinically proven to reduce the appearance of cellulite and dimpling and to help smooth, tighten and firm the appearance of loose skin. NeriumFirm also helps restore the appearance of youthful contour, tone and texture.

NeriumFirm is the only contouring product on the market harnessing the power of the NAE-8 extract, the key ingredient in the renowned NeriumAD skincare line. In addition to the proven results of NAE-8, NeriumFirm contains five other key ingredients:

Peptide matrix
Caffeine
White willow bark extract
Green tea leaf extract
Forskohlii root extract

Apply 1 – 2 teaspoons of NeriumFirm with gentle circular massaging motions to the targeted area (from the knee to the hip, the buttocks, the arms and/or abdomen), ideally while skin is warm and damp, then allow to dry 5 – 8 minutes prior to bedtime or dressing. Best used after showering and exfoliating on clean damp skin. You may experience a tingling or warming sensation and a little erythema (redness of the skin), which will dissipate quickly.

DO NOT mix with other products and make sure the targeted area is clean, damp, and free of lotions or products. For Better Results: As noted above, your main application of NeriumFirm should be in the evening before bed, just after a warm shower and preparing your skin surface with light exfoliation (the product works best overnight while you sleep). Want to supercharge your results? Add a second application of NeriumFirm in the morning!

#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.

Jocelyn: My Morning Beauty Routine!

I have to say I’ve been using this Nerium AD for the past almost two months…. and I have been so happy with the results. My skin has two types during the winter. Dry and Painful. That’s about it. I have to be VERY careful with my skin in the winter because of how sensitive it is. We live in Oregon. We should have great weather for skin. Slightly warmer than cold, damp, and not too hot or too cold. The middle ground is perfect for skin. Usually – I don’t have such a hard time. But lately, my skin has been achey. It’s been dry and painful! I was my face with a gentle lotion twice a day. I start off in the morning using Nerium AD in the morning – after washing  my face, and then after washing at night, I finish off with Nerium AD at night.

CYMERA_20131213_112726

Believe it or not – after following this routine for the past 8+ weeks, my skin HAS NOT done what it has every other winter. I have been able to stave off the extreme skin conditions. The lotion helps soothe my achey skin, and has kept me from having to deal with the troublesome skin I’ve had to deal with in the past.

I apply Nerium AD in the morning, and it helps protect and heal my skin. I follow up again at night, and the two products combined have changed my life.

CHANGED MY LIFE!

My pores are smaller, my skin is softer, my crow’s feet are all but gone, and the skin under my eyes is tighter! I am OBSESSED with this line, and I’m trying to figure out how I can use it for the rest of my life. Hold while I check on that.

Now Erin and I can get back to what we do best………..

Erin: My Nightly Beauty Routine

In the Pacific NW we have been hit with unseasonably dry, cold weather. We are accustomed to rainy, mild winters but the last two weeks it has been incredibly dry with temps dipping into the single digits. This cold, dry weather normally would wreak havoc on my skin. But even after long days out in the cold and wind shopping for gifts or taking the kids to the tree farm my skin has been looking and feeling great thanks to Nerium.

CYMERA_20131212_195920

At night, my routine includes washing my face with a cleansing brush to ensure I get all the dirt, toxins and makeup off. Then I use 4 pumps of NeriumAD nighttime and apply it all over my face, neck, and chest. Nerium is so easy to use, instead of the multiple bottles I use to need at night, I just need my Nerium. I look forward to the clean scent, and how great my skin feels when I apply it.

CYMERA_20131212_195824

Once I have applied, I can jump into bed while Nerium goes to work improving the appearance of the texture, tone and wrinkles on my face. I love how balanced this serum is I wake up the next day and my skin feels really hydrated but not greasy at all. I am starting to see some real changes in my skin. Along with an improved clarity, I love how much firmer and more radiant my skin looks. Can’t wait to share the final results of my NeriumAD challenge and show you my before and after pics.

Get Healthy Skin for the New Year with Nerium!

NeriumAD_Day-and-Night-Cream-706x1024

Jocelyn and I were recently approached to try NeriumAD and give you our real results over a series of posts. We received our bottles of Nerium about a week ago and I thought it might be too soon to really have an opinion on it but I was very wrong. But before we share our results let me share a little more about the Nerium skincare line.

Erin’s First Week:

I really like the packaging the pump feature is easy to use  and I like the shape of the bottle. It not only makes it easy to use but they don’t fall over and create a domino effect in my medicine cabinet like other tube products.

With fair, sensitive skin I was happy to find that NeriumAD is not only an age-defying product but its safe for all skin types. So many products I have tried have really irritated my skin. From the first use I like how the product  feels on my skin, and it absorbs effortlessly.

I have been using the NeriumAD Day and Night cream and within the first days use my skin started feeling much more hydrated.  Three days in I started to notice an improvement in the tone of my skin. This has just the perfect amount of moisture and now at the end of my first week I can really see a difference. The most noticeable would be the firmness of my skin and my pores appear much smaller. Can’t wait to see how my skin changes with continued use.

Jocelyn’s First Week:

I’ve been using Nerium AD for over a week now, and I have to say I don’t know if it’s the timing – or the product itself – but my skin feels amazing. Typically in the November, December months, I find myself having to hydrate my skin a couple times a day. I’ll do facial moisturizer in the morning – and then again at night after washing my face. Sometime in the afternoon, my skin will start to feel crackly. Yes, crackly. Since I started using Nerium AD in the morning – and then again at night – my skin has seen a DRAMATIC change. My skin doesn’t feel so “thirsty” anymore. I can last longer between moisturizing. This product is really changing how I thought my skin was supposed to behave! It’s supposed to be naughty during the winter, right? Guess not!

I love this product so much – and can’t wait to give it another 2-3 weeks and see where I’m REALLY at. If I’m already noticing a difference, and I’m only a week in, I can’t wait to see where I’m at in another couple weeks.

This product changed the way I feel about my skin! I feel like the skin from my 20’s is back! Isn’t aging a b***h? I want my 20-year-old skin back. You remember how it didn’t matter what you put on your face, your skin was always gorgeous? Now I have to worry about wrinkles, and pulling my skin too much, and washing my makeup off gently, and whether or not my lotions have SPF. Take me back to my 20’s! Above is a picture of Erin and I on our first road trip to California! We drove to Los Angeles right around 21 or so. LA or bust!
