Karin Herzog: Kate Middleton's favourite moisturiser put to the test | Daily Mail Online
The 6 Anti-Aging Products That Gwyneth Paltrow Swears By: Introducing Goop Skin Care. January 19, PM. by Molly Creeden. Gwyneth Paltrow. Anti-ageing products available on the High Street are increasingly high-tech, when I put one famous Royal's favourite face cream to the test. We sent some of the latest premium skincare products to hundreds of women to test, and can now reveal the anti-wrinkle creams, serums and.
The majority of over-the-counter skin creams are made from relatively benign products, most of which could be ingested…. These are apparently nasty elements, according to Dr. Jen Gunter, who hosts a fairly comprehensive discussion of Nerium that is worth reading. Her issue is that NeriumAD is made from a highly poisonous plant and there is inadequate safety data to prove its long-term safety. Her concerns are heightened by the many reports of people receiving serious rashes and allergic reaction to the Nerium Beauty Cream.
In our Internet review of anecdotal experiences, it is quite common to find people who saw no major or any improvements after using the Nerium creams. This is not uncommon — most high-end skin creams have both advocates and detractors.
What makes Nerium more marketable…. Some have stated that the quick results are due to the fact that it causes your skin to swell slightly. So rather than getting rid of wrinkles, you just get puffier. Their theory is that it is destroying the cells on your skin in the same way a chemical peel would. The fact that many people report that after the first month or two they develop rashes and report headaches should be a concern to customers. Another thoughtful discussion on the safety of Nerium products is at Barefaced Truth.

It notes that the same ingredient is used in anti-cancer drugs which are sold by Nerium Biotechnology, the parent company of the Nerium Skin Care. There is extensive peer reviewed published scientific research on the effects of oleandrins which are extracts from oleanderplants. If absorbed into bloodstream, these same chemicals can have effects on the heart, including heart block, which can be fatal.
The bigger the dose, the bigger the risk of untoward effects. This is an issue, according to this blog, because topical application of oleander plant extracts may result in cardiac poisoning.

It also has posted a highly-edited video on YouTube depicting a panel of alleged experts describing the health effects of Nerium. You be the judge….
Gunter points out, the absence of any peer-reviewed studies is disconcerting and, for the good doctor, a dealbreaker. At a very basic, level, all skin creams are essentially the same.
They contain oils to moisturize the skin — like Vaseline. They also contain ingredients designed to maintain that moisturizing, but without the greasy feeling of Vaseline.
Thus, we are left to assess effectiveness based upon anecdote — which never a desirable basis. A number of customers on Amazon and elsewhere complained of skin irritation after long-term use. A quick note about The Placebo Effect. The placebo effect is the measurable, observable, or felt improvement in health or behavior not attributable to a medication or invasive treatment that has been administered. Irving Kirsch, a psychologist at the University of Connecticut, tested to determine the effectiveness of Prozac and similar drugs.
In an earlier study, his co-researcher analyzed 39 studies, done between andof depressed patients treated with drugs, psychotherapy, or a combination of both. He found that 50 percent of the drug effect is due to the placebo response. Subsequent studies have borne out the Placebo Effect.
Could it all be in the mind? Scientists are increasingly recognizing t he placebo effect as an authentic neurochemical reaction in the brain. Very good on lines and wrinkles.

I must have spent hundreds of pounds over the years on so many products for eyes — this is the best. Would pay whatever the price, as it was perfect for me. Under-eye wrinkles seemed not as visible, and I even used a tiny bit on my top lip as I loved the look of my lines diminishing.
A little goes a long way, so it would have to be mega expensive for me not to buy it. The product impressed me with the reduction in fine lines. My husband, who notices nothing, said I look very well and had I done anything different.
Sounds a little strange, but most of our testers enjoyed the anti-ageing results from their very friendly skin bacteria. This cream also gave me firmer, plumper skin, and improved my under-eye bags. An excellent product, I prefer it to my usual brand.
The fine lines around my eyes seemed less visible and people did notice, which made me feel good. I felt this had great benefits, which is what you look for when buying a product. Having returned from a sun-worshipping holiday, I found the condition of my skin was much improved and more radiant through the use of this rich cream.
