Don't Be Afraid of Aging, Just Practice Some Self-Preservation!
Meaningful Beauty Review- Is It Worth The Hype?
*Update at bottom
What do you think of when hearing Meaningful Beauty? Cindy Crawford, right? Well she and Dr. Jean-Louis Sebagh, her personal aesthetician, got together to bring the line to the public.
The brand is now owned by Guthy Renker, along with other well-known brands. They made a really good decision keeping Cindy as the spokesperson for the brand, in my opinion, I mean Look at Her Skin!!
She says that it is due to the rare French melon extract that is used in the majority of the products.
The brand has now expanded to offering body and hair care, but here I will be focusing on the skincare routine products.
If you order from the official website (www.meaningfulbeauty.com) you can choose from a 5 or 7-piece kit that will be full-size products. Right now they are advertising 3 free gifts and free shipping.
The gifts include Ultra Lifting and Filling Treatment, Intensive Triple Exfoliating Treatment, and Glowing Serum. I will explain these last.
Now to the products.
Skin Softening Cleanser: This creamy cleanser doesn’t strip moisture from your skin the way a lot of cleansers may do. The weird thing with this one is that you don’t wet your face first, you apply it to a dry face and then rinse. Comes in a 6 fl oz bottle.
Youth Activating Melon Serum: This serum uses the Melon Leaf Stem Cell Technology, Sea Daffodil Extract, and Orchid Extract for visibly firmer and plumped skin. Comes in a 1.7 fl oz pump container.
Anti-Aging Day Moisturizer: An environmentally protecting moisturizer with SPF 30. Protects from the blue light that comes from our phones, TVs, and computer screens. Comes in a 1.7 fl oz pump tube.
Lifting Eye Cream: Of course, this is for the delicate eye area. It states that it diminishes the look of fine lines and wrinkles and also works on dark circles. Comes in a 0.5 squeeze tube.
Age Recovery Night Cream: Intensely hydrating overnight moisturizer. It has the melon super antioxidants along with retinol to help get rid of fine lines and wrinkles and also improves the texture of your skin. Comes in a 1 fl oz round container.
Skin Brightening Neck and Decollete: This is for firming, moisturizing, and protecting the chest and neck area. It contains SPF 15. Comes in a 1.7 fl oz squeezable tube.
Glowing Serum: This is called Dr. Sebagh’s “model’s secret”. A lightweight serum to nourish and revitalize for an instant glow. Comes in a 0.5 fl oz pump bottle.
Now for the 3 gifts, which I have already told you about the Glowing Serum.
The Intensive Triple Exfoliating Treatment is pretty much a scrub that gets all the dead skin cells and helps with tightening those pores. Contains French purifying clays and 3 different exfoliators. Comes in a 1.7 fl oz squeeze tube.
Next, the Ultra Lifting and Filling Treatment has orchid extract and encapsulated melon extract to firm and lift. Comes in a 1 fl oz pump bottle.
The Ordering Process
Right now the 7-piece introductory kit is being offered for 20% off. The regular price is $69.95, so you can get it for $55.96. The 5 piece kit is priced at $49.95.
So I could give a detailed review, I went on ahead and ordered myself the 7-piece kit.
I clicked on the order button and was taken to a page to be able to buy Firming and Tightening Body Hydration Treatment for $15. The regular price is $55.
I decided not to add it and then clicked to another page. Here I was given the opportunity to upgrade, which increased the sizes of the products, for 2 additional monthly payments of $55.96.
I did take that upgrade, and I will be adding a video to show the sizes and textures and a more personal review.
Going through this process apparently enrolls you to get future shipments. In 3 months it automatically will be shipping me another kit in which I will be paying $246.74.
Meaningful Beauty is paraben-free. For anyone wondering what parabens are, because I sure was, they are preservatives used in cosmetics and pharmaceutical products. It is suspected that chemicals such as phthalates and parabens can interfere with the body’s hormones, estrogen, and testosterone.
The most common ingredients found are Octinoxate, Avobenzone, Propylene Glycol, Glyceryl stearate, Cucumis melo fruit extract, and Magnesium ascorbyl phosphate.
It is also cruelty-free, thank goodness!
Out of 5 stars, they have a 4.7 overall average customer rating.
Quality and value of product have the same 4.7 out of 5 ratings.
5895 people gave Meaningful Beauty a 5-star rating.
Of course, their reviews are going to be praising the products, so I looked for reviews of the 140 that only gave them 1 star.
Here is what they had to say:
“I bought this a month ago and I am not seeing any results. I am canceling any future shipments.”
“No change in wrinkles or appearance. Too many products to use. Needs to simply size. I am an early riser for work and it takes too much time to use.”
“Besides the putrid foul odor, these products are no better than everyday lotions. It sells because of the promoter. “
As I said, there are 140 of these. However, all of them did receive a free product.
My review is neither negative nor positive. I found what I could on the official website and ordered some for myself.
I did find other places where you could order Meaningful Beauty and it not be a subscription. The only downfall to that is that they mainly will come in smaller sizes and you will pay to ship. They also don’t offer 3 free gifts.
Amazon has the 5-piece starter set, Ulta Beauty has the 5 and 7-piece starter set, and Walmart + has the 5-piece starter set.
*Update* I used the full-size products for 3 months and I wanted to share my results.
Cleanser- I was very pleased with how soft my skin felt even after using the cleanser for the first time. It is rather thin but you use it on your face dry.
Youth Activating Melon Serum- I did like the smell and feel of this serum. The downside is I didn’t see any visible results.
SPF Moisturizer- This did moisturize my skin for the day and provided the protection it needed.
Lifting Eye Cream- When I first started using the eye cream, it would tingle just a bit. I haven’t noticed any difference.
Age Recovery Night Cream- I love the way this night cream smelled, felt, and made my skin feel. It is a night cream worth having!
Glowing Serum- This is another one with a great smell. I did enjoy using this serum on my face because of how it made my skin feel and glow.
Exfoliator- I used this 2-3 times a week and it worked just as exfoliation should.
Ultra Lift and Filling Treatment- I was not impressed with this. I didn’t notice any difference using this treatment.
Honestly, after reading others’ reviews it seems different people have different results. In my opinion, though, it is a lot of money to end up spending on something that may not work.
I would suggest you give it a try before committing to the membership. The time for a product to show visible results is usually about 4 weeks. I would buy the set from Amazon first to see how it will work for you.
