Osmotics Nécolleté- reviewed and recommended

Reviewed by AgelessJen February 16, 2011 22 Comments

Pros

Improved skin's color and texture, less "crepeyness" around the neck

Cons

Does not double as an exfoliant
Really does the job of providing a more youthful decolletage

I’m going to start at the end: I have just bought my first jar of Osmotics Nécolleté Age Reveral for Neck and Chest.  I think it works to the point that I have now invested $63 in it (available in the TIA shop). Now for the story.

The rundown:

I was the lucky TIA member who received a full size jar of Nécolleté to test this past November.

Around that time, I noticed a few new signs of aging on my neck/décolletage which freaked me out: a bit of “crepey” skin at the base of my neck and a deepening of the ring-like wrinkles above. These observations sent me into a bit of panic. I realized that my regimen of sunscreen during the day, occasional exfoliation, and using one of a variety of facial of serums before bed wasn’t up to the task.  I began looking for a décolletage-targeted product, something that was formulated to address my concerns.  Serendipitously I got a notice from Osmotics about their new product, Nécolleté.  Then Marta wrote a post about it here on TIA, and I knew I had to act; I commented on the article about my search for a "silver bullet" and Marta did me the kindness of giving me a jar to test.

I decided to test it on the left side of my neck/décolletage while using Nectifirm (which I purchased) along the right, applying both creams on a nightly basis.

Application:

Nécolleté is a translucent cream, contained in a jar (as opposed to airless pump which I would prefer) with a faint scent of what I vaguely recall baby aspirin smelling like. The scent is undetectable after the cream is applied. Upon application, the product needs to be (briefly) massaged in, or else it will sit on the top of the skin still noticeable upon waking in the morning.

I noticed a difference between the two sides within 2-3 weeks; the left side had a smoother texture and was less red than the right side.

Two weeks in I decided to add a moisturizer (SenZen Infinity Never Ending Moisture) to the process as my skin seemed dehydrated on both sides. This seemed to be a solid decision, and I noticed continued improvements in color and texture on my left side such that I dropped Nectifirm from the test 7 weeks in. I’m now 9 weeks in, and besides improved color and texture, I’ve also I’ve noticed that the “crepeyness” is receding. I think Nécolleté works, and as I mentioned above, I've already bought a new jar.

A few regimen points:

Nécolleté doesn’t exfoliate, so I use La Vie Celeste Restorative Exfoliating Gel Mask 1x a week for that purpose. I’ve just started using my Sonicare daily in a “dry brush” method. I use YBF Antioxidants, or another serum under the sunscreen during the day, and I irregularly use my Baby Quasar on my neck, chest, face, and hands when I can motivate myself. That tool really works- but the process is tedious.

Please let me know if you have any questions about my experience, or if you have any suggestions, and thanks to TIA for giving me this great opportunity.

Regarding an in depth exploration of the ingredients – I’m going to point you to Marta’s original article on Essenskin and Necollete.

    Hi Sheila,
    I know you directed your question to Marta and Stephanie, but I wanted to chime in here. I too still use Necollette and I am very happy with the results. I feel my neck and decollete are at a great place right now. With summer coming so are lower necklines, I would say Necollette is definitely a product worth trying.

    Hello Marta & Stephanie,

    Thank you for the great information.

    I have been trying different neck firming products for nearly 2 years now. I've tried Perricone, Strivectin, Nectifirm, and Neck-cessity. Of those products, Neck-cessity seems to have worked best.

    I have not tried Necollette, but I'm definitely interested in trying it.

    Since it has been two years since this review, I was wondering if you have any updates? Are you still using it? If so, did you notice any further improvements?

    Thanks!

    Okay I have ben using Necollete for about 10 weeks. I think it has improved the firmness of the whole neck area,especially the area we all hate underneath the chin. It is by no means totally firm but I think the skin is some firmer and like Stephanie says the crepey look is almost null. I will continue to use it. The skin on my decollete is very soft and those wrinkles are much less prominent. I will keep using it and will definately say it has been better than Nectifirm at least on my skin.
