Meaningful Beauty Crème de Serum- A Review

I think most of us have seen those late night infomercials where Supermodel Cindy Crawford talks about her skincare line, MEANINGFUL BEAUTY.
You know, that "magical" secret beauty line that keeps her looking so young and fabulous? Yes, THAT one.

Well, as an esthetician, I am always on the lookout to try new products and see just how well they really work. One night sitting up watching tv, I came across those infomercials. I have to admit, I was intrigued. I mean look at Cindy! She's about 2 years older than I am and she really does look incredible.

Of course, as intrigued as I was I was also skeptical. Let's face it (no pun intended) Cindy IS one of the most beautiful women in the world. She has the money and means to have access to anything and everything she can to keep looking that way. So is it really all because of some secret ingredient found in a melon that keeps her youthful glow? I really wanted to know.

On a personal note, I have been told I look younger than my own 43 years and I chalk that up to good genes as well as my knowledge as a skincare professional that knows how to properly care for my skin. If you have the right tools, and know how to use them correctly, most people can achieve skin that looks great and remains looking that way.

Now, the facts. Listen carefully. What I am about to say is very important. THERE IS NO MIRACLE IN A JAR THAT WILL MAKE ANYONE LOOK YOUNGER. Yes, I said it. You can try everything out there, but we must face facts, we are going to get older-like it or not.
BUT-and yes, this is a big BUT- there ARE certain ingredients that can and will help us maintain healthy looking skin. we cannot stop the clocks, but we CAN slow them down a bit and look good while doing it.

Ok, so back to the subject you came here for. MEANINGFUL BEAUTY.

I just so happen to be a member of a wonderful program called INFLUENSTER. As a member, often I am selected to receive complimentary products from Influenster for testing purposes. 

As my good fortune would have it, I was selected to try...yup, you guess it- a sample of Meaningful Beauty Creme de Serum. 

When I learned of this opportunity, I of course, jumped at the chance. I was finally going to see what all the excitement was about. I immediately started posting on FACEBOOK and TWITTER, telling everyone I knew that I was going to try the fabulous product that Cindy Crawford swears by. My friends were excited, too. Many admitted they also were curious as to the secret to Cindy's great looks. Now they could find out from a source who is unbiased. Anyone who knows me , knows I will never promote or encourage use of something I think is not a good thing. I am honest to a fault and especially when it comes to skin care. It's my profession and people rely on my honesty. So, if I was going to use this product, they knew the information I shared would be 100% true. 

Now, when my serum arrived, I was very excited to try it. I wasn't expecting very much to be honest. It containsa ingredients that are essential to healthy, younger looking skin. Hyaluronic acid (HA)and ant-aging peptides. Oh yeah, and that super antioxidant melon complex. 
Now I have been using a serum with HA and peptides for years, so I knew the benefits I would get from those. The melon complex? Well, I don't too much other than the info I received, but I knew it wasn't going to hurt.

So by know you must be wondering what I think, right? I mean this is supposed to be a review, not a discussion of my beauty routine. Ok, here it is. MEANINGFUL BEAUTY Creme de Serum is in fact, quite impressive. After just a few days, my skin was significantly softer, silkier and smoother. I kept looking in the mirror and touching my skin. Today I even went to my office without any makeup on. 

I am using it as directed (once a day, either morning or evening-I chose evening before bed) and it's been about a week. Do I look younger? Of course not. But my skin feel incredible. I can say that much. 

I am very happy with my current line of products, so I don't plan on switching at this time, but I would LOVE to try the full line of MEANINGFUL BEAUTY products out to see what kind of results I can achieve. 

I know this product is not going to make me look younger than I do. But it's not full of excess chemicals. It's pretty pure. It does make me feel good about myself. I'm happy with how I look and isn't that really all that matters?  Is it worth investing in? I think that would be left up to individuals to see for themselves. It's not the Fountain Of Youth, but it works. I wouldn't tell anyone NOT to use it. 

The only downside I can see is that you do have to sign up for a auto ship program. Those things aren't really something I like, but if you don't mind that, than I say go for it!
