Meaningful Beauty skincare by Cindy Crawford – Test Drive {Before}

meaningful beautyYou’ve heard me talk about how dry my skin is, especially during the winter months. I’ve tried quite a few products to combat my less than stellar skin and have yet to find one that I like enough to stick with. Dry skin isn’t my only complaint. At 32, I’ve started to notice that the wrinkles are really starting to become a problem, especially around my eye area where I’ve developed an impressive amount of those crow’s feet I’ve always heard women talk about. Pair the wrinkles along with the large pores I’ve always battled and well, it just isn’t pretty! Because of these skin difficulties, I am very excited to be participating in the Meaningful Beauty Test Drive. Over the next four weeks, I’ll be using this advanced anti-aging skincare system created by Cindy Crawford and anti-aging specialist, Dr. Jean-Louis Sebagh. It will be interesting to see what this line can do for my skin.

Meaningful Beauty is formulated with a powerful super-antioxidant from a rare melon along with such skin rejuvenating ingredients as peptides, vitamins, minerals and marine extracts and can help skin appear radiant and youthful. 

I will admit that The Meaningful Beauty system is going to be a challenge for me as it involves both an AM and PM skin care routine to stick to. In the past my routine has consisted of cleansing my face with whatever cleanser is handy and occasionally smearing some moisturizer on my face before bed — thus the reason for my not-so-good skin. I am determined to stick to the schedule for four weeks though and cannot wait to see if Meaningful beauty makes a difference for me and my skin.

Meaningful Beauty skincare system

The Meaningful Beauty system has 5 basic steps that are meant to Cleanse, Protect, repair, Revitalize and Purify. When you’ve correctly used the system {and kept up with the routine}, Meaningful Beauty should give results that show such as :

  • Helping smooth the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
  • Adding radiance and brighten your complexion.
  • Preserving skin’s existing youthful vibrancy.
  • Protecting skin from environmental aggression and free radical damage.

While at first I was concerned with how I would figure out HOW to actually use the products correctly, my fears were quickly put to rest when I found “Cindy’s Daily Routine” tucked away inside of my box. This instruction sheet tells me exactly which product to use, when to use it and HOW to use it — no guessing involved! I also like that the sheet gives me a few choices, suggestions and tips to make me feel a little more confident with the routine. AND it’s a nice thick sheet that is waterproof so I can have it right beside me in the bathroom while I’m learning!

I’m hating this photo but you can really see the wrinkles I am talking about in it, also notice the redness in my T-zone area — both from dryness and large pores. The products I’ll be testing are:

  • Skin Softening Cleanser
  • Antioxidant Day Creme SPF 20 UVA/UVB
  • Creme de Serum
  • Lifting Eye Creme – Advanced Formula
  • Skin Brightening Decollette and Neck treatment SPF 15
  • BONUS – Glowing Eye Serum
  • BONUS – Glycolic Treatment Pads
I was also sent an extra Meaningful Beauty skincare system with instructions to give to someone in my life who is meaningful. I chose my cousin, Amanda. She is always there for me whether it’s listening to me complain about something or driving over to spend the day playing the Wii, she is more than family, she’s my best friend! I was happy to have a little surprise to give her and she was excited to receive it as she ‘s seen the Meaningful beauty commercials on TV and wondered how the system would work. It will be fun to try it together!
I’ll be starting the Meaningful Beauty Test Drive tomorrow morning and will report back to you in four weeks with the results. I am hoping to see a decrease in how noticeable those wrinkles are around my eyes and hopefully my pores will shrink a bit and be less noticeable as well. I’m excited!

    Have you considered something like krill oil or tulsi tea? They are internal boosters and might help along with the external products.
