Nerium Age-Defying Skin Care Reiew

By: Donna Chaffins | Date: June 21, 2017 | Categories: Beauty

I received product samples for review purposes. All opinions are 100% my own and may differ from yours. I will only endorse companies, products and services that I believe, based on my own experiences, are worthy of endorsement

I can remember the first time I was allowed to wear makeup. That day started my love affair with all things beauty products. I am a beauty and skin care junkie. I love trying all the new and latest products. As I’ve gotten older, those products generally fall under the anti-aging category.

I look for makeup and skin care products that makes me look younger. One thing I think that’s universal among most women is the search for the proverbial fountain of youth.  Don’t get me wrong, I love getting older, I just don’t want to look older.

So, I was excited to try out some new skincare products from Nerium recently.

Nerium skin care for age-defying and anti-aging results

Nerium Age-Defying Skin Care

Nerium wants us to look as good on the outside as we feel on the inside. Nerium’s products are made to bring out the youthfullness in all of us, regardless of our age.

I’ve been trying out these three products:

Age-Defying Eye Serum

“This revolutionary, multifunctional age-fighting product targets puffiness, dark circles and wrinkles to reveal smoother, healthier-looking skin around the eye. Our exclusive Age-Defying Eye Serum also brightens, tightens and moisturizes the eye area.”

I love how easy it is to apply the eye serum. It only takes a little bit and you do see immediate results. I was leery about wearing makeup over it, but as long as you are gentle when applying your makeup, and you should always be gentle when applying makeup around your eyes.

Moisture Boost Hydrogel Patches

“Hydrogel Eye Patches deliver a boost of intensive hydration to the eye area to combat the appearance of puffy, stressed or fatigued eyes. Featuring ThermoReact™ technology and powered by patented ingredients SIG-1191™ and I-FIL4R™, they offer benefits that appear like an instant “eye lift.”

A closeup of me sans makeup is not something I normally share with the world, but I wanted you to see how the patches stay on…

Oh. Em. Gee. These patches feel so good. You get 5 sets of patches to apply once weekly under your eyes. They are clear almost jelly-like in texture. You just apply them with the “N” facing outward directly to your under eye area for 20 minutes. I set the timer and relax. They are so soothing and relaxing. I’ve only used them twice but definitely feel more hydraded under my eyes.

YOUTH FACTOR™ Complete Vitality Complex and Superfood & Antioxidant Boost

Nerium skin care for age-defying and anti-aging results

“Youth Factor Complete Vitality Complex contains both the Youth Factor Enzyme Blend and Complex NAA™ that help with:

  • Cellular energy support. *
  • Free radical defense. *
  • Strengthening the immune system. *
  • Reducing the appearance of wrinkles. *
  • Revealing brighter-looking skin. *”

“Youth Factor Superfood & Antioxidant Boost helps to balance the body’s pH levels to help maintain well-being. It is designed to work in concert with Youth Factor Vitality Complex (tablet) for optimal benefits, to help:

  • Keep the body at its optimal alkaline state.*
  • Defend against free radical damage.*
  • Improve the body’s ability to absorb the most beneficial ingredients in supplements and food.*
  • Reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.*”

I’ve been taking one tablet of the Youth Factor Complete Vitality Complex supplement daily with food, usually at breakfast. I also add one packet of the Youth Factor Superfood & Antioxidant Boost to 8 ounces of water or juice and drink it along with the Complete Vitality Complex supplement.

My Final Thoughts

Nerium skin care for age-defying and anti-aging results

My favorite is the Age-Defying Eye Serum, but I have been using it a little bit longer than the other two products. I have noticed some improvement in the fine lines around my eyes, which may be a combination of both the eye serum and the Hydrogel patches. I definitely see immediate results, albeit somewhat temporarily, when I use the Nerium Age-Defying Serum.

I’m looking forward to continued use of these Nerium products and seeing more age-defying results.

Check out Nerium and try one of their skin care products for yourelf. They care products for your skin, body, and mind.
