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
I 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.
