As we say goodbye to the season of hot summer sweat, it is time to put aside oil-fighting cleansers and moistures. Being a model, maintaining my skin in the best condition is top priority. So I always prep my skin for the weather changes ahead of time. Especially living in Calgary, the day winter can be quite harsh and damaging to our skin. Recently, I have received Nerium International's latest product; Optimera Day&Night Cream. I have very sensitive skin, so I have to be cautious of the ingredients used in skin care products I choose. So, before my 7-day Optimera experience, here are some facts about the new skin product.  

The new line is from Nerium International, which produces breakthrough skincare products validated by science, and includes both a Night Cream and a Day Cream. They are the only products on the market to include the exclusive new patented SAL-14 extract. Optimera launched to customers in Ontario and BC, Canada in spring 2014 and it is now available across Canada. 

According to Marie Bertrand, Skin Scientist and founder of the Skin Science Clinic in Calgary, “Optimera is absolutely unique in the skincare world – I haven’t seen anything like it. With real science behind the products, they work on all aspects of skin aging to produce powerful results. With Optimera, there’s no need to have dozens of different products to achieve younger looking skin.”


·         Botanically based, the Optimera products are nature's best to produce high-impact resulsts that help skin appear firm and youthful-without harsh ingredents.
·         The main ingredient in both products is the patent-pending SAL-14 extract, a synergistic combination of various botanicals including Bidens Pilosa and Aloe Barbandensis Leaf Juice, is produced from a cutting-edge plant cell duplication technology and is formulated to significantly reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, discoloration, uneven skin texture, enlarged pores and aging/loose skin.
·         Optimera products also contain Centella Asiatica, which helps with the appearance of toniing and tightening. 
·         In addition to these high-impact ingredients that are in both products, the Day Cream also includes moisturising agents that keep skin feeling soft. 
·         The Opyimera line is ideal for all skin types and formulated without: parabens, gluten, propylene glycol, sulfates, DEA, or synthetic colors. 


·         Optimera is clincially proven to significantly reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, discoloration, uneven skin texture, enlarged pores and gaing-loose skin. 
·         In addition to the signs of aging, Optimera also improves radiance, elasticity, and the smooth appearance of skin.
·         Clinical trials performed on Optimera reveal that 93% of participants had improvement in the appearance of their wrinkles and 97% had an improvement in their skin radiance.

Since its August 2011 launch in the US, Nerium International has reached record-breaking sales and earned industry accolades while building millions of consumer fans along the way. The launch of Optimera in Canada marks the first country in Nerium’s international expansion.

After couple applications of the Day Cream, I can feel the immediate change on my skin. The Day Cream is very soft and smooth. After applying a thin layer, my skin feels fresh and moist. During workdays on the make up chair, my skin are constantly getting dipped and smeared with products. So having the right daily moisturiser is essential to me. Even under heavy make-up, the Day Cream kept my skin feeling hydrated throughout the day. 

The texture of the Night Cream is very similar compare to the Day Cream. But it does have a heavier feeling even when I only apply a thin layer. The Night Cream was heavy enough that I didn't have to use a serum, but it might be a little too much for some. It kept my skin hydrated overnight, I wake up feeling fresh in the morning. A tip on the side for the best results; massage around the face in circular motion during application for about 30 seconds, then press gently on dry spots if needed. 

The overall result of the Optimera Day&Night Cream for me was quite nice. But every skin type are different and your skin may react differently to the product. So I would recommend tp do a patch test on your skin prior to use. This is to ensure that you do not have any allergic reaction to the product and if you do, it will only be confined to a small area of skin and thus treatable with ease.

Optimera Skincare line by Nerium International is now available to customers in Alberta at MyNerium.com. $188 for both the Night and Day Creams, or the Night Cream can be purchased separately for $125.
