Nerium Review

Nerium The Nerium company is confident their wrinkle cream is one of the safest, most effective products available. And what makes them so confident?

Supposedly, clinical studies show the key ingredient diminishes wrinkles, fine lines, uneven skin tone, and age spots. This powerful ingredient was also proven to be safe, they say.

My goal was to find the truth behind these claims and help consumers decide if Nerium is worth buying, or if it’s just your typical pyramid scheme.

Is Nerium Effective?

Nerium contains natural moisturizers such as aloe vera, glycerin, hydrolyzed quinoa, and olus oil. But the star ingredient is nerium oleander.

“We had a eureka moment in our research labs when we stumbled upon what nerium oleander could do for skin,” says Dennis Knocke, CEO of Nerium Biotechnology, Inc.

Even after spending hours on the official website, I have yet to learn what nerium oleander does. The information may be there, but I couldn’t find it because the website is not organized in a consumer-friendly fashion.

I did learn nerium oleander is capable of killing cancer cells by increasing oxidative stress. This was shown in a study by Dr. Robert A. Newman, who is chairman of Nerium Biotechnology, Inc.’s scientific advisory board.[1]

Oxidative stress, however, damages skin cells – cancerous and healthy alike — and speeds up the aging process. If nerium oleander increases oxidative stress and kills cells, is Nerium really good for your skin?

Is Nerium Safe?

“[Nerium oleander’s] use as a poison is well known,” says WebMD.com. In fact, 10% of nerium oleander ingestions result in fatality.[2]

Despite its highly poisonous nature, nerium oleander is used to treat skin problems. Supposedly, the toxic glycosides in nerium oleander are less likely to penetrate skin and enter the blood stream when used topically.

However, WebMD.com says there’s not enough information to know if applying nerium oleander to skin is safe. The American Cancer Society doesn’t seem to think it’s safe at all.[3]

What the Studies Show

Nerium Biotechnology, Inc. submitted its product to the ST&T Research firm for clinical testing. Nerium was applied to participants’ skin and then their faces were scanned. The results showed this cream smoothes skin and reverses aging, but I was skeptical about these results.

The official website doesn’t provide a reference to the study or study details. This leaves me with many questions:

• How long did the study last?
• How many people were involved?
• What percentage saw improvements in skin?

Besides showing Nerium is effective, the alleged study found it to be safe.

Since the company is very vague about the study, I started to wonder why. Are they trying to hide something? If the study really was so successful, providing more information would help consumers feel confident Nerium is safe and effective. So, why isn’t the company sharing more information?

What Consumer Reviews Have to Say

On Amazon.com, 110 users left feedback for Nerium. A few gave 2-4 ratings, but the rest gave either 1 star or 5 stars. I was surprised by this dramatic split; especially after hearing the company talk about how amazing Nerium is.

In positive reviews, users said Nerium is an excellent wrinkle cream. It makes skin feel healthier and smoother, and it restores an even skin tone.

Some of the reviews were so positive, I started to doubt their reliability. With some digging, I discovered most positive reviews were not written after an “Amazon Verified Purchase.” So, there’s no proof the reviewers even bought Nerium. I wouldn’t be surprised if many reviews were written by company employees or members of their multi-level compensation plan. This wouldn’t be the first time I’ve seen that happen.

Forty users gave 1-star ratings because Nerium didn’t improve skin even slightly and caused skin problems such as:

• Rashes
• Acne breakouts
• Puffiness and swelling
• Irritation and itching
• Red bumps
• Clogged pores
• Severe skin drying

They also said Nerium smells terrible and feels thick and gooey. Several people said they cancelled the auto-program, but the company continued charging them and sending products every month. When consumers tried returning the unsolicited products, the company refused to accept them.

Becoming a Product Distributor

Nerium Biotechnology, Inc. doesn’t sell its product. Rather, the company uses a multi-level-marketing program. Anyone who wants can sign-up to be a Nerium distributor. But that’s only half the job. The company offers incentives when you recruit other people. Rewards and bonuses are also used to motivate distributors to make sells.

Nerium is sold on the following sites, and my guess is the sellers are authorized distributors:

• eBay.com: Prices vary, but the average price is $75
• Amazon.com: $94.95
• Sears.com: $156.32

Nerium Conclusion

The company insists Nerium is a breakthrough wrinkle cream, but they don’t even explain how it works. I’m very doubtful it works because research proves it increases oxidative stress, which may make wrinkles worse – not better.

The fact that nerium oleander is so poisonous also put me on guard. Yet, the company claims to have research proving Nerium is not only effective, but also safe. For some reason though, they don’t share the complete study results.

If Nerium is so safe and effective, why did almost half of reviewers say it doesn’t improve skin and causes side effects? I was already skeptical when I couldn’t find the study, but these negative reviews make me question it further.

I don’t recommend buying Nerium because I don’t believe you’ll get your money’s worth. Not to mention, the “business” side of it is very shady. “Pyramid schemes” generally only work out for the people on top. In order to supplement your income you would be sacrificing your money, time and relationships with friends and family for a product that is not guaranteed to work. I suggest only purchasing a wrinkle cream backed by a 100% money-back guarantee.

      It was thick and gooey for me. Everyone is different.THough your experience will be different from others, it does not disqualify others experiences. Im in the skin care industry and I tried this product for a few weeks. I hated the texture and smell. I saw results, but no long term ones, as when I stopped using the product, the results faded. I would not recommend this product as a professional

      My cousin sells Nerium, and of course made me try it, and it does have an earthy smell to it. It is also very thick, the instructions tell you to dampen your face before applying the night cream because it is so thick.

    Tried for a week and don’t see any significant results. Told rep I wasn’t interested and they want the bottle, magazine and DVD back or $80.00. Meeting at 3PM today and the reps will both have black eyes to put steaks on tonight as the nerium does not work.

      There is no magic cream that will work in a week. First it does come out creamy, but you are to apply it to a wet face. 30 days is enough to see results, and if you don’t you get your money back, how simple is that? I’ve been on it for 9 months and I get complements on my skin all the time. I don’t even get razor burn and have no need to use after shave or balm as my skin stays smooth. For those experiencing rashes, or pimples, that will pass as the Nerium is cleaning the toxins from the skin. I love the stuff as it has taken the years form my face.

    Am in my 4th week. No visible improvement. Have gotten breakouts at chin area. Not sure if related, but not thrilled w/product. Am only doing it as a trial for my niece. Don’t think I’ll continue. At $100 a bottle, don’t think it’s worth it. If it really worked, wouldn’t matter what it cost. Still looking for alternative to StriVectin which I’ve used for years.

    I don’t sell Nerium, but get it in the mail once a month. I’m in my 70’s and have tried about everything there is to try. This is the first time I’ve seen results. It hasn’t helped that much on my deep wrinkles, but my patches of big pores are gone and my face just looks fresher and younger. Several friends have commented on it and one ordered Nerium for herself.

    I was skeptical about this product because I am a former dermatologist and have tried everything out there. I did my research on nerium oleander and there is plenty of information in reputable medical journals.

    I been using it for 5 days and it made a difference. I’m happy with the results and of course there is some people that are going to complain about side effects but it is like that with everything you either put on your skin or take by mouth.

    The reps are very specific about that they will get the bottle back if 5 days so you know up front that you have to return it or buy it.

    Do you go to the mall and get a bottle of anti wrinkle product before you buy it?? At least with this one you know exactly what you are buying after 5 day trial.

    I have used it for 3 mo I saw no immediate results in fact I seemed to get more wrinkles with each passing month, it is stinky & gooey seems to draw my face like it is sucking the lire out of it, I tried different ways more water less let it dry etc, nothing, when I contacted my person and said I was quitting she gave me the day cream to use with it, same thing still dont’ like it and no good results, I called the company to stop and to also return it, they don’t take returns and they don’t give any money back so the whole thing is a multi-level scam, I think eventually all of these who say they love it(or they may have been bought off)will get more wrinkles than they had , I think this is a total scam taking advantage of gullible people like me plan to change my ways for sure

      I would not buy it just because it’s in a MLM,
      Only the few people at the top ever make money off of the hard work of the people at the middle and bottom of the prymid. I have been and many friends have been involved in MLM’s and it has always cost us money in the end!

    Some love it – some hate it. I personally do not like Nerium. Right now my face and neck look like I have the measles. I have a terrible rash and it burns and itches. I am a very light fair skinned individual and my skin is sensitive. I wanted this to work as the person who asked me to try it is a very good friend and I so wanted to help her in this industry… but, it definitely had extremely adverse effects on my skin! Be cautious….

    In reply to your comment: I have bad skin allergies to MANY things, including AVON’s ANEW skin care line; I do NOT SELL Nerium, but I use it, BECAUSE it is the first skin care product other than Senegence, that I can use. . .; it works, and I Do Not have any rash or HIVES like I had received with the ANEW products……; I am not criticizing Avon’s ANEW product line; I am just allergic to it, but can use Nerium without any problems. . .! ANYONE can have an allergic reaction to ANYTHING. . . , so don’t say that the product is NO GOOD, because you had an allergic reaction to it. . . ; that doesn’t mean everyone will have an allergic reaction to it

    I started using Nerium 3 weeks ago and see the results because I took photo in the beginning. But all this negativity throughs me off. It is hard to succeed in multi level marketing because of skeptical opinions and bad reputation.
    I will continue using the product but not selling because of negative people.
