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

meaningful beautyIt has been just shy of four weeks since I introduced you to the Meaningful Beauty 5-step treatment by Cindy Crawford. You might remember that I was complaining {a tiny bit} about how my aging skin has started to show those pesky fine lines and wrinkles, especially around my eye area. I also shared that I have been slack on using any kind of dry skin treatment in the past and really had not been taking care of my skin the way that I should be. 

Since I have never used an entire line of products together before, certainly never regularly, I have to tell you that I was worried I wouldn’t be able to keep it up for the whole month long test drive! My worry was for nothing though, I was surprised by how easy it was to get into the habit of taking care of my skin every day! And, I can honestly say that I have been faithfully using this kit every single day for the last month! Yes, of course I did miss my nightly routine two times during the month, I felt so guilty about it though that I made sure it didn’t happen again!

So let’s see what the Meaningful Beauty skin care kit tells us we should see improvement on within 6 weeks – 

  • 85% of participants reported their skin visibly improved.
  • 91% of participants noticed an overall improvement in the healthier appearance of their skin.
  • 76% of participants noticed a decrease in skin dullness and dryness.
  • 85% of participants would recommend the product to a friend.
  • 100% of participants reported no irritation.

While it has only been four weeks in on my test drive, I am very pleased with the results so far! I can truly see a slight difference in the depth of the “crow’s feet” wrinkles around my eys and the smile lines around my mouth. My skin is also so much softer than it was when I started. It no longer feels so tight and stretched from being dry, it feels hydrated and smooth. 

Also, I have noticed that the redness, or uneven skin tone, isn’t as pronounced as it was before I started using Meaningful Beauty. I haven’t had any more breakouts than usual, in fact I’ve probably had less. Even though my skin can sometimes be a bit sensitive, none of the lotions bothered me or irritated my skin.

As I mentioned before, having the included “Cindy’s Daily Routine” instruction sheet truly helped me get off to a great start with the treatment kit. I was able to confidently use the products in the order that they were meant to be used in and in a way that I knew was correct by reading this simple sheet. Here is my basic daily routine:


  • Cleanse face with a dollop of Skin Softening Cleaner using my fingers and a circular motion. Rinse with warm water and a washcloth to exfoliate.
  • Smooth 1 squirt of Creme de Serum over my face with fingertips.
  • Smooth 1 squirt of Antioxidant Day Creme over my face with fingertips.
  • Pat a drop of Lifting Eye Creme underneath each eye with fingertip.
  • Cleanse face with a dollop of Skin Softening Cleaner using my fingers and a circular motion. Rinse with warm water and a washcloth to exfoliate.
  • (Once a week I used the Glycolic Treatment Pad to slough off dead skin)
  • Smooth 2 squirts of Creme de Serum over my face with fingertips.
  • Pat a drop of Lifting Eye Creme underneath each eye with fingertip.
  • Smooth a large squirt of Skin Brightening Decollete and neck treatment over neck and chest area.
Notes: I didn’t use any of the bonus “Glowing Serum”, frankly I forgot all about it and I don’t think that I really needed it. I will give it a try though! Also, rereading my instruction sheet, and the back of the bottle, I now realize that I am only supposed to be using the Creme de Serum ONCE per day, not BOTH times per day… Oops. I really like this product though! If I had to choose one, the Creme de Serum would be my favorite. I absolutely love the way it feels when I smooth it onto my skin, it’s so creamy and decadent feeling! 
If I had to find one thing about the product that wasn’t exactly how I expected it to be, I would say that I had a hard time getting used to the cleanser. It doesn’t suds up or foam at all and I had to convince myself that it was alright! My face always feels so clean afterwards so I know that it IS working, it just tricked my brain without all the excess fluff!
meaningful beauty dealI think that because this is my first time using a skin care kit like this, I may have been using a bit less each day than I am supposed to be using. I have quite a bit left over after 4 weeks, it still seemed to do its job though so I am not complaining!
I would honestly recommend that you try this product if you are searching for an all in one skin care routine for your dry or aging skin and I plan to purchase another kit myself, as soon as this one runs out. You can get an amazing deal when you buy one, currently the complete anti-aging system can be purchased for $39.95. That includes 5 products + 3 bonus product, plus it is free shipping. You cannot buy all of these products in the store for that price!

    Henrietta, You did a great job breaking down the review. I liked that you included the pictures. The after picture shows a nice smooth skin. You didn’t have too much to worry about for the wrinkle aspect. I can see the redness has gone away. I have always wondered about using this product so thanks for the trial review!

    I’ve seen this on TV a few times and I’m always skeptical about how products like this work on average folks, you know?! I mean, Cindy Crawford has the world of skin experts at her fingertips so it’s pretty much a given that she’s going to look radiant. I’m glad you tested it out – I might actually get it for myself and give it a go! :) Thanks!

      I really love this kit! I slacked off for a few days after writing this post and I could definitely tell! I’m back to doing every day again! It’s a great price as well, I mean you can’t buy this amount of products in the store for such a low price!

    I saw the before and after review. The kin tone gets whiter and tightens the skin. It results into fairer and smoother face ever. I admire on what you got with your skin treatment for skin care.

    Are there any new products that came out in 2014? Last place I looked I couldn’t find anything newer.
