Over the last week I have been trying out the new skin care range 'Meaningful Beauty®' developed by Supermodel Cindy Crawford with leading skincare expert, and Cindy’s personal dermatologist, Dr. Jean-Louis Sebagh. The range is formulated as an age maintenance regime, leaving the skin feeling soft and rejuvenated while helping to protect from environmental damage.
It's secret formula is an advanced antioxidant complex that contains a patented melon extract to help refresh tired skin. It is naturally enriched with other skin revitalising ingredients such as coenzyme Q10, Lipoic Acid and minerals to revitalise skin for a more youthful-looking, radiant complexion.
Perfect as preventative action against the signs of aging & used by Cindy herself the range is available in comprehensive kits so you have the all essential items.
This skin care range is perfect for any woman conscious about the visible signs of ageing and taking care of her skin. Used by Cindy as part of her daily beauty regime, the Meaningful Beauty® range is available in comprehensive kits or singular products so you can stock up on all your favourites. I have been testing out the the 5 Piece 30-Day Introductory Kit, which contains all the below products for just £29.99 which is fantastic value considering you get an entire skin care range, you can also get the larger 90 -Day Deluxe Kit for £69.99.
Skin Softening Cleanser (60ml)
What They Say - Meaningful Beauty® Skin Softening Cleanser is a non-irritating formula that won’t strip your skin of essential oils. Its creamy, non-foaming texture sweeps away makeup and impurities, leaving skin clean and glowing – not tight and dry.
What I found - Definitely does as it says it will do on the bottle, removes make-up very easily too, plus it even shifts stubborn left over mascara! My skin felt soft without any tightening which is always a good sign of a gentle good quality cleanser.
Maintenance 1 – Day Moisture (15ml)
What They Say - Meaningful Beauty® Day Moisture with SPF 8 is a luxurious, super-charged daily shield to protect against free-radicals, which are often responsible for premature aging of the skin. This featherweight face formula with SPF 8 and a clarifying and brightening botanical blend helps to smooth and brighten your complexion, leaving the skin feeling refreshed and revitalised.
What I found - I noticed a brighter complexion straight away with this moistuiser, it was light on the skin without any fragrance & left my skin feeling silky smooth as well as balanced. My make-up glides on easily with the moisturiser too & it actually has lasted a little better than with my normal moisture base, which just goes to show it can double up as a make-up primer as well!
Maintenance 2 – Night Fluide (15ml)
What They Say - Meaningful Beauty® Night Fluide is a great way to achieve smooth-feeling skin overnight. Helping to restore the skin’s nourishment, Night Fluide will help you gain a healthy-looking complexion. Vitamin A is included in the formula to help reduce the appearance of fine lines and promote a refined skin tone.
What I Found - This feels silky soft & hydrates the skin, again my complexion definitely show signs of improvement first thing in the morning!
Eye Crème (7.5ml)
What They Say - Combat puffiness, dark circles and fine lines with Meaningful Beauty® Eye Crème. This extra-rich antioxidant formula helps to revitalise the skin. Carefully selected botanicals pamper, refresh and brighten.
What I found - No dark circles that's for sure, the skin around my eye sockets (which I felt was sagging slightly lately) has seen an improvement, definitely firmer that it was previously - result!
Facial Masque (20ml)
What They Say - You will feel the difference of this ‘facial-in-a-bottle’ after only 20 minutes. An infusion of antioxidants and marine extracts purifies, deep cleans and revives stressed-out skin. Dry, dead surface cells are lifted off and skin-dulling impurities are removed – revealing a fresh complexion that looks clear and radiant.
What I found - You do get that 'just stepped out of the salon' feeling with this one, my skin felt refreshed & a lot healthier over all, a fabulous detox for the skin!
Glowing Serum – Skin Revitalising Serum (15ml) - £13.99
What They Say - Transform dull, tired skin into fresh, glowing skin. Apply Meaningful Beauty®’s Glowing Serum as an instant pick-me-up for a special event or any time you want to look radiant. This luxurious serum is designed to smooth, condition and restore the skin’s natural vitality and brightness. Soy protein, marine botanicals, minerals, vitamin C and antioxidants help nourish, protect and revitalise skin, leaving your complexion with a youthful, luminous glow.
What I found - This is fantastic, again it smooths over the skin under your moisturiser & your make-up just glides on but with an extra glow to your complexion! It has become a daily luxury for me now!
Décolleté and Neck Crème (50g) - £13.99
What They Say - An extra silky formula that helps to firm, moisturise and bring life back to skin in the often neglected area of the neck and chest. Antioxidant ingredients work on the cellular level while lush emollients leave skin velvety soft with a glowing finish.
What I found - This isn't something I have paid too much attention to over the years, but as I gear into my mid thirties (not quite there just yet!), I'm thinking about taking those steps to avoid the turkey neck! I have to say my skin now feels brilliant along my neck & chest, so I'll definitely be keeping up the routine from now on!
