    Default What do you know about Nerium?

    I have a friend who is now hawking Nerium? Does anyone know anything about it? Truth or bullshit?

    I know nothing but the marketing sure makes it sound like a massive scam.

    Yeah, gut tells me to be suspect.

    Here's a review of it - sounds like it could be toxic
    Despite being poisonous, nerium oleander is commonly used as a skin cancer treatment, so what will it do for your wrinkles? Nerium International markets their product as an anti-wrinkle treatment and a lucrative business opportunity. This is where I start to see red flags. Personally, I am not a fan of multi-level companies. They all tend to over-hype a “newly discovered ingredient” and rarely do their products deliver. Not to mention, all the sign up fee’s, auto-ship programs, recruiting meetings… what a drag! Before you know it, you have a closet full on unused product and your friends have mysteriously stopped taking your calls.

    Nerium oleander contains cardiac glycosides, which are toxic. They are the reason the ingredient is poisonous when ingested. When cardiac glycosides were combined with malignant cancer cells, oxidative stress increased and the cancer cells died.

    Oxidative stress isn’t usually considered a good thing. It may kill unhealthy cells, but it destroys healthy cells, too. In fact, many skin care products use antioxidants to prevent oxidative stress because it speeds up skin’s aging process.

    If nerium oleander is applied to skin, is there any proof the cardiac glycosides can distinguish between healthy and unhealthy cells? I couldn’t find any.

    I wish the company would explain why they believe Nerium diminishes wrinkles. My research shows the main ingredient is more likely to damage skin than anything else.
    These are snippets from this review. I wouldn't touch the stuff.

    I'll just say that all the women out here that are stay at home mom's are hawking this shit. First it was that Mona Vie shit and now it's Nerium.

    I read some of those same reviews last night. I double questioned myself because I had a different friend, who doesn't sell it, said she heard the stuff was awesome, so I thought I was missing the boat on something. I feel better now.

    My step sister just got a new Lexus from Nerium. She loves selling it and swears it's going to help her retire early. I am trying the product myself in a week. She's been doing it for awhile now in Washington and loves it.



    Here are some pretty impressive before and afters. https://www.dropbox.com/sh/v4kynwnbofzkut7/A6wresm0Y_

    ^^I just read in the DM that Ray Liotta is suing the company for using his image without permission and falsely claiming he used their product:

    If they stole his picture, I wouldn't be surprised if before and after pictures have also been stolen.

    You guys got me thinking. I was looking at a new pic of my step sister and couldn't help but notice that she really does not look any better than before she started selling Nerium. I looked at all the terrible reviews it's received on Amazon, and I think I'll have to pass on trying it. A lot of people said it really irritated their skin and mine is red enough on it's own. I don't need to make it worse. I still use Nu Skin products, the last line she sold, and love it. I was pretty excited to try it. I love and trust my sis, but this is one thing I can't spend $100 a month on.

    sprynkles - I use Nu Skin too and my skin loves it. Non-irritating, anti-aging, anti-oxidant.

    I love the Galvanic Spa. It works. I used to have two of them so I could do both sides of my face and neck at one time. I also use Elizabeth Grant products. I love them too.

    I take their supplements too, and use face and body stuff. I distribute it but don't have any customers and don't push it on anybody; it's not the cheapest thing around.
