An anti-aging line with an unexpected active ingredient

Nothing catches my attention like a new anti-aging ingredient… Sometimes it’s a new, high-tech molecule created in a lab, sometimes it’s sourced from nature, but regardless, we’ll give just about anything a try in the name of turning back the effects of time. Now you’ve surely heard of oleander (and its poisonous effects), so when I received day and night creams that contain its extract, I was instantly intrigued.


NeriumAD is the one and only anti-aging line that contains a patented oleander extract, and from the before-and-afters I’ve seen, the improvement in fine lines, wrinkles and discoloration is quite impressive. The star ingredient in NeriumAD is an innovative molecule called NAE-8, which combines the powerful antioxidant capabilities of oleander with the benefits of aloe. (The products are free of parabens, gluten, phthalates, sulfates, synthetic colors and fragrance, as well.) 

I’ve been using the Age Defying Day Cream along with the Age-Defying Treatment at night for a few weeks now, and my skin is looking pretty fab. Although the company says you need to give them at least 30 days to see results, I’ve definitely noticed improvement already. The Day Cream absorbs fast without interfering with my sunscreen or makeup, but I’m not crazy about the texture of the nighttime treatment. It’s thick and almost mask-like, but after seeing the B&As, of course I’m still using it! The beauty of this anti-aging duo is that you can use it on other areas like the hands and chest (check out those before-and-afters, too), so you better believe I’ll be sticking with it until the very last drop.
