A friend of mine is selling products, should I buy them?

A friend of mine is selling a product called Nerium. I was curious what your impression of this night cream is and whether you believe it to be safe (given it is made from nerium oleander plants).

Pyramid schemes and businesses have been around for a long time. Some are well established and more reputable like Mary Kay and some are not. In my opinion, there’s no evidence that Nerium does anything more than already excellent products on the market that have more of a track record.


Please see what I think is one of the best night creams. It’s also tricky with friends who are selling things. Friendships sometimes don’t survive business relationships.

One of the best investments in your skin is your daily skincare. Why? Because you can prevent many problems with blotchy skin color, lack of glow, texture, some types of acne, and fine lines with good skincare products. You can also correct some of these problems with effective skincare products. Great skincare is often more expensive because quality ingredients are expensive. Some companies spend on research/development which benefits all of us and adds to the cost. Are they worth it? In general - yes! I have handpicked some of what I consider to be the best skin care products, and offer them for sale on SkinTour's shop. This is based on my team and I's testing and research at our clinic. Many of the products are in my own regimen. What could be better than using skin care products a dermatologist uses?!
