Meaningful Beauty Skin Care Review & Giveaway

I was lucky enough to have the opportunity to trial and review a set of facial skincare products from the Meaningful Beauty range by Cindy Crawford, Yes that Cindy Crawford!  Now we all know she looks amazing, she will be 45 in 2 days and looks like this with no make up


and I am 37 and look like this without mine



OK, in turns of skin I am actually quite lucky, as someone who has never (yes I really mean never, I know I am committing a cardinal sin) used any kind of moisturiser of skin care regime I am doing well but look at those bags and when I finally do lose some weight then who knows how saggy and liney my skin may be.  So now is the time to start using some products and see if I can delay nature's course just a little bit.

I have been using the Meaningful beauty products for about 3 weeks now and I really like them.  Not only is the packaging simplistic but elegant the actual smell and feel of the products is really lovely.  I saw the small sizes (mine is a trial kit) and I thought they would last just a few days but I am 3 weeks in and have hardly used any product at all, a small amount certainly does the job and seems to go a long way.

Skin Softening Cleanser - is fragrance free and comes in a superb container which means there are no spills or messy edges. It feels like silk on the skin and once applied and gently massaged in, you wash it off with a face cloth.  I normally use wipes to remove my make up and this did a far superior job.  One night I even did my normal with the wipe and then used the cleanser after and I could still see it has removed extra grime, so it results in a very fresh and clean face.

Daily Moisturise SPF 8 - This light but creamy moisturiser was lovely, as mentioned a small amount goes a long way. It did not feel too heavy on my skin and I was able to apply my make up practically immediately as it was not wet or sticky. My skin definitely had a smoother and less liney appearance after using this for a couple of weeks.  I also like the fact there is a built in SPF, you know, in case the UK ever does receive any sun!

Eye Creme - I have used this a few times but to be honest I forget! I do not know if it has made a difference or not. I tell you what I was pleased with, I did get a bit in my eye on one day and it did not sting at all, so it is nice to know the products are gentle.

Facial Masque -  I love the smell of this and could happily use it every day, however it just recommended for twice a week, so being a good girl that is what I did.  After this masque my face felt really tight and fresh, I could definitely see after using it the first couple of times that my skin started to expel all the bad bits as the spots come and went but now it is a case of maintaining rather than exfoliating.

I think I have done well for a novice, trying out these four products and sticking to my regime using them every day.  I will definitely stick with this now and when my products run out I can buy some more from the Meaningful Beauty website. The products range between £13.99 for a 50ml facial masque to £17.99 for a 30ml Moisturiser.  Considering the small amount you need I am happy to pay that price.

There are other products in the range such as Night Fluide (moisturiser), Glowing serum, Decollete and neck creme and Pore refining toner but I did not trial these out.

Giveaway

So you have read the review, are you now interested to try some products for yourself?  Yes, great I have a giveaway for you!

One lucky winner will receive a 50ml Facial Masque worth £13.99 and also a 14g Decollete and neck creme, 5ml Glowing serum and 15ml Night Fluide.

    I would love to try more products in this range. I've been using the Glowing Serum since just after Christmas (it was a gift) and last week when I went for a facial the beautician said "I really can't give you any better advice than to keep up the good work!". In 25 years of having facials, nobody's ever said that to me before. The only thing that's differrent is I'm using the Meaningful Beauty serum instead of my usual one.
