There’s no denying that the topic of anti-aging is just as hot as ever. It’s everywhere and will be as long as we all continue to, well, age.
There seems to hit a certain point when you start to look in the mirror and spot those dreaded lines. Even though it feels like it, they don’t just land there one day. These fine lines and wrinkles have been creeping up on you over time. However, it sure does feel like one day you went to sleep with a baby face and the next you’ve woken full of crows feet and under eye bags.
We’ve all learned about the importance of prevention. We know it’s essential to caring for your skin before it becomes damaged by keeping it clear and makeup free or by correctly and completely removing your makeup. We’ve read the articles telling is that if we don’t smoke, drink less, eat healthily that our skin will remain fine and youthful.
But what happens when you’ve already skipped that step in your younger years and today look in the mirror to see skin so unrecognizable staring back at you every morning?
Enter the never-ending battle of anti-aging skincare trials. It does seem to take forever doesn’t it – and the questions that come with it never seem to stop. Will it suit me? This review sounds great, shall I give it a go? How long will it take? How much younger will I look? And while they’re all necessary, they sure do seem to get you down.
So, it’s time we got to the bottom of something great once and for all. Don’t you think that sounds lovely?
Here you’ve got our full review of an anti-aging product that is researched, tested, and poised to be the solution we’ve all been hoping to find.
Is this product the answer?
As with all skin care products, it’s not likely that there is one perfect solution for everyone. That said, Meaningful Beauty was developed using quality, researched science as its foundation. Plus, its creator is one of the world’s leading anti-aging skincare specialists. So, you’d definitely think this is a quality product that creates results for the vast majority of people.
Let’s dig deeper into what I’ve discovered and see if this product lives up to the high expectations.
First, it’s helpful to understand the history of these products and the people behind them.
As an aging movie star with a need to hang on to her mid-twenties skin, Cindy Crawford found Dr. Jean-Louis Sebagh. He is a renowned skin specialist, dubbed “a world expert in medical anti-aging” by Vanity Fair. Sebagh has dedicated years of research and development to his mission of bringing back radiance and a youthful feel to tired skin by slowing down visible signs of aging.
As he puts it, “My goal in this collaboration [with Cindy Crawford] is to raise the benchmark of the quality of affordable skin care products, so we really bring the best ingredients and try to increase the concentration of ingredients. My job is to really bring this quality into it.”
So, what is his secret? We asked for you because we’re all wondering the same thing. There has to be something that sets him apart from others and making him as internationally acclaimed as he has become. Dr. Sebagh grew famous for being one of the first to use SOD – the antioxidant found in a rare French melon. Almost all of his work revolves around this one ingredient. He’s found that quality skin treatment comes down to using the right elements. It really is that simple!
So, over the past ten years, the pair have teamed up to create an exceptional, yet accessible skincare brand, promising to bring the best in anti-aging to the masses. We’ve heard rave reviews since then, but now with their newer, more advanced range of products, can it be the answer all women (hey, and even men) have been looking for to keep skin looking young?
In Cindy’s own words, she tells us “I was already in love with Meaningful Beauty®, and now we’ve upped the ante, adding great new products and constantly seeking to improve the ones we love”.
So what does it promise?
To put it simply, this skin care promises to reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles, bring back radiance to the skin and generally brighten up your complexion to ultimately hold on to that youthful look we’ve all been wanting back! You’ll also find a little UVA and UBA protection in there too, to keep your skin protected from harmful rays on a day to day basis.
And how does it work?
The products in the five-step system – Cleanse, Protect, Hydrate, Revitalize and Renew – is what you’ll receive with the new advanced system, including;
- Skin Softening Cleanser (60ml)
- Antioxidant Day Crème SPF20 (15ml)
- Crème de Serum (15ml)
- Lifting Eye Crème Advanced Formula (8ml)
- Firming Chest and Neck Crème (14g)
As a bonus gift with purchase of the set, Meaningful Beauty often offers the Wrinkle Smoothing Capsules (7 Capsules) at no additional cost to you. This is a generous value!
If you follow the process laid out by the Meaningful Beauty system, your skin will be clean and free from dirt before the day creme is applied, setting your face up for the day and protecting it from the sun. Then it’s time to use the serum and eye cream and allow them to get to work, as they are both packed full hydrating and brightening agents. The collection also provides care for the décolleté – a growing trend we are grateful for from the skincare industry. The final step in this anti-aging system is swallowing the peptide-based bonus capsules which contain a healthy of Dr. Sebagh’s key ingredient for maximum effect.
At least, this is what the research shows. I decided to try it myself to see if it lives up to the hype. I feel much more confident in my experiment with Meaningful Beauty knowing that I’ve got 60 days of testing before I have to repurchase and can get my money back in that time if not sold.
What did I think?
Before I get into sharing my Meaningful Beauty review, I want to point out that my skin is relatively normal. I have some days where it’s a little dryer and others where it feels a bit closer to combination skin. None of these changes are ever anything too drastic in one direction or the other.
I’ll be the first to admit that I’ve got a few lines around the eyes that I’ve become self-conscious about as they’ve gotten deeper. This is part of why I was so excited to try this product. I would love to try and combat them now so that they don’t get worse with age – as we’re all aware they do. I’m hoping prevention and this anti-aging system will be key for me!
Here’s my full review:
First, the cleanser – I loved it. Not only did it thoroughly clean both the surface of my face and deep into my pores, but it actually felt refreshing on my skin. It’s definitely a mild cleanser, but for me that works well. The additional combination of not too strong of a smell and the fact that it leaves a smooth texture to my skin makes this face wash perfect at creating a great base for the rest of my skincare routine.
Second, the creams – overall, they left my skin feeling bright and smooth. It sometimes felt as if they even gave my face and neck a bit of a glow. I think this was mainly due to the serum and the eye creme was great for me. My eyes felt more moisturized and I’d noticed the cakey makeup look I’d been getting recently had eased up.
And would I re-buy?
Would I stick with using the anti-aging collection I got to try? Probably.
I was especially impressed that the décolleté area is catered for too. This is part of my body that I’ve not spent a lot of time or money on. Now that I’ve started, thanks to this system, I’m enjoying taking care of my neck and chest area. I know that it’s important to be working on prevention here before the damage and age effects become irreversible.
The one drawback to the Meaningful Beauty system is the lack of night cream. I’ll be honest in sharing that I feel skin care regimens without a product to give your skin intense moisture and the opportunity to heal while you sleep is important. Therefore, I found it slightly disappointing that this set of beauty products doesn’t come with one. However, there are a number of night creams available to purchase on the site as a supplement to the system. I’m definitely going to be giving this one a go too!
Overall, I’d definitely say, for a fresh and bright feeling with your anti-aging skincare, Meaningful Beauty is worth the try.
