Does Meaningful Beauty Glowing Serum Really Glow?

cindy crawford glowing serumIf you are a regular reader of Be Electrifying, you may have already read the review on my initial purchase of the 7 piece youth enhancing system. If you are not a regular reader, you can sign up on the right side of this page.

I wanted to give the glowing serum it’s own review, as I feel it deserves it.

Although I did not recommend that you purchase the entire kit, there are different products from it that I do like, and the serum is one of them.

After you cleanse your face and apply your preferred moisturizer, you then apply the glowing serum (be sure the moisturizer is completely dry).

Once the serum is dry, you can then apply your make-up (if you wear it). I noticed an immediate difference in the look of my skin after applying the Meaningful Beauty Glowing Serum. It’s hard to explain, but it does give your face a “glow”.

I wear Bare Minerals make-up, and I love the Mineral Veil Powder. I began wearing it long before trying the Meaningful Beauty product line. Although I use the glowing serum, I still love the look of the Mineral Veil, so I apply it after I am completely done with my make-up, and it complements the glowing serum perfect. I will continue to use both products for a flawless look.

If you want to try out the entire Meaningful Beauty product line, obviously the choice is yours, but I hardly ever use the same product brand for all of my face care needs. I find something from one brand that I like, and I stick with it.

For this reason, I am a huge Amazon lover. I purchase almost all of my beauty products there. Unfortunately, at the time of this post, the Glowing Serum is not available to purchase on Amazon.

You can however purchase the Mineral Veil. Be careful that you don’t accidentally purchase the illuminating mineral veil unless you really want a shine!


Meaningful Beauty Lifting Eye Cream – Real Review

If you are expecting a review of Meaningful Beauty Lifting Eye Cream, you are going to get just that, but please read through the entire post as it may not be what you are expecting.

meaningful beauty lifting eye creamAbout a month ago, I began using the entire Meaningful Beauty system (you can read the full review here). Included in my 7 Piece Kit was the Lifting Eye Cream which I was very excited about. I had been seeing the infomercials on television for over a year, and I finally jumped in and purchased.

I am beginning to get fine lines around my eyes that are more pronounced when I smile, and it really makes me self conscious, so needless to say, I was really hoping to reduce the appearance of these unsightly visitors.

I applied the eye cream religiously twice a day for nearly a month. Now, I am a realist, so I did not expect to look like I was 20 again, but I did expect some sign that the product was working.

Unfortunately, I did not take before and after photos, but I can say without a doubt that this product has done nothing to reduce the look of the “wrinkles” around my eyes. I plan to continue using the product on one eye, and have purchased a new eye cream that I am using on the other. I want to see if it will show anything different in month 2 compared to this new eye cream that I have read really great reviews about.

I am not prepared to share the new eye cream with you just yet, but stay tuned because I will be posting about it soon enough. You can sign up for my newsletter, and I will email you the minute I post a new review.

This blog is about honesty, and I always try to offer you the best advice on the beauty products that in my experience have worked, and even the ones that have not. In this case, my Meaningful Beauty Lifting Eye Cream review is one that I would not recommend you go out and purchase. I am determined to find one that works so that you can enjoy the benefits without spending too much time, money and energy to find a good product.

Until next time, stay happy, healthy and beautiful!

Meaningful Beauty by Cindy Crawford – Final Review

It has been one full month since I began my review of the Meaningful Beauty system by Cindy Crawford, and I hope that you read this in full before making your decision whether to purchase or not.

I originally posted on March 10, 2017 on my initial impression of the product with a promise to give an honest review as I always do.

First, let me remind you that I am not new to trying out new face products, specifically when it comes to anti-aging creams and moisturizers. I am in my early 40’s, so keeping up with my aging skin is one of my top priorities.

Moving On to My Review

Cindy Crawford Product LineI purchased the 7 piece youth enhancing system, however, I did not use all of the products on day one. The only way to truly test something on it’s own is to space out how and when you use each step.

I began with the skin softening cleanser, pore refining toner, and Creme de Serum. My initial reaction was that my face did feel softer to the touch. I went with this routine for a few days, and I then added the Lifting eye cream.

Once I decided that my face was getting used to the products, I began using the Ultra Lifting and Filling Treatment.

Here is Where the Real Review Begins

Until I reached my mid 30’s, I suffered from mild acne breakouts. They finally subsided at that time to where I would only get a pimple or two every now and again. If I didn’t know any better, I would say that the minute the Ultra Lifting and Filling treatment touched my skin, it created a plethora of pimples on my face.

I stopped using the Ultra Lifting and Filling treatment, and added the Antioxidant Day Cream in the morning, and then used the Creme de Serum at night. It is my experience that the Antioxidant Day Cream with SPF 20 had the same affect on my skin – pimples. In all fairness, I will say that I have always had trouble wearing any type of sunscreen on my face due to acne breakouts.

Needless to say, I went back to the original routine of the cleanser, toner, and Creme de Serum (I used the Creme de Serum for both daytime and nighttime moisturizing).

What Happened After a Full Month of Using the Meaningful Beauty System?

I am now a month into using the product, and my face looks like I reverted back to my teens. I have a huge pimple on the middle of my nose, and several on each cheek. It is quite disturbing that after all of these years of trying different face creams that the most expensive product I have tried had the worst affect on my skin. I will now be using my daughter’s Proactive to clear up my face. You can click here to read why we chose Proactive over X Out.

My only hope left is the Lifting Eye Cream which has not affected my skin in any way. And I mean that literally. It had no bad affects, and also had not shown any improvement on the fine lines beginning around my eyes. My initial thought is that it is too soon to notice any difference with wrinkles, so I will continue to use the under eye cream until it is gone and will report back of I find anything worthwhile to share.

My final review of Meaningful Beauty by Cindy Crawford is that it is not worth the money or aggravation of hitting puberty all over again in my 40’s.

Lucky for me (and you), I am reviewing a new eye cream for the fine lines around my eyes, and I am going to test it one one eye while using the Meaningful Beauty Lifting Eye Cream on the other.

You will want to stay tuned for these results because I have a feeling it will be worth your time to read. You can sign up to our newsletter by entering your details at the top right of this page, and we will notify you as soon as we post new reviews and updates.

Until then, stay happy, stay beautiful, and in my opinion, stay away from Meaningful Beauty, and spend your money (and less of it) on products that actually work. To date, my favorite face cream is Olay Regenerist Micro-Sculpting Cream. When I find one better, you can best believe you will be the first to know.

Meaningful Beauty Review 2017 – An Inside Look

As you know, I love to review face products. Whether it be an anti-aging cream or my favorite make-up, it is my responsibility to my readers to give you the most honest reviews possible.

Today, I am going to be talking about Meaningful Beauty by Cindy Crawford. If you haven’t seen the TV ads, you must be skipping through commercials, because the marketing company for this product is none other than Guthy-Renker, the same company that markets the Proactive product line. I have no idea what they charge for advertising, but from the looks of things, you would have to be a celebrity (no pun intended) to afford their services.

Today’s post is just an introduction to my first impression of Meaningful Beauty. I will need some time to fully review the affects from using the product (if any), however, there is one product that proved a noticeable difference on day one. We’ll get to that in a minute.

meaningful beauty proof of purchase I always like to show proof of purchase whenever possible, so here is a screenshot of my purchase receipt. Unfortunately, the date is not present, but I ordered the product on March 3, 2017, and received it on March 7, 2017. Today’s date is March 10, 2017.

Shipping Cost and Speed of Meaningful Beauty

I used the Free Option being advertised on television which gives you the choice of 3 different kits. We ordered one of the 7-piece kits, and it arrived 4 days after purchase. The link is www.meaningfulbeauty.com/free if you are interested in checking it out.

The shipping was Free, which is always a plus.

I Chose the 7-Piece Youth Enhancing System

Cindy Crawford Product LineThis kit includes:

  • Creme de Serum
  • Antioxidant Day Cream Broad Spectrum SPF 20
  • Skin Softening Cleanser
  • Ultra Lifting and Filling Treatment
  • Lifting Eye Cream – Advanced Formula

With the purchase of this kit, you are permitted 2 bonus items to make 7 pieces. For my bonus items, I chose:

  • Glowing Serum
  • Skin Softening Brush

The packaging was secure, and all items were wrapped in protective plastic. You also receive an instruction book, and a handy card explaining an “order” so-to-speak of how and when to apply the products (Day and Night Routine).

My initial review of my first order was great. However, when I logged into my profile on their website, it automatically adds you to a subscription service, which does not bother me at all. What does bother me is the cost of future shipments. I will do some research on this for future purchases if I decide I want to continue using the product, and as always, I will post my findings. I obviously cannot give a full review, as it has only been 4 days, but there was one product that stood to me from the first use.

After I used the cleanser on day one, I applied the Glowing Serum before applying my make-up. My normal procedure after cleansing is to apply my favorite foundation primer made by Bare Minerals but I decided not to, and just used the glowing serum.

If you ever wondered how the celebrities (J Lo comes to mind) get that glow along their cheeks and above their eyebrows, I now know that it is some type of glowing serum. It made my face look 10 years younger, and I am not exaggerating.

If you are a regular reader, you know that I am 42 years old, and have a passion for staying young. With that said, I am trying to keep it that way, hence all of my reviews on face products.

Even if I decide not to continue receiving the 7 piece kit, I will definitely continue to use the Meaningful Beauty Glowing Serum! You can find it individually on Amazon here.
