Meaningful Beauty Review and Giveaway

~~The giveaway is now CLOSED~~
Meaningful Beauty Age Maintenance System is a 7-step skin care regimen brought to us by Cindy Crawford, the beautiful super model and mom entrepreneur. Meaningful Beauty's skin care system is based on exclusive formulas developed by Europe’s leading cosmetic surgeon, Dr. Jean-Louis Sebagh, who discovered a rare French melon with a powerful "first generation" antioxidant (superoxide dismutase). Each Meaningful Beauty formula contains at least seven key ingredients for skin renewal. What sets Meaningful Beauty apart from other anti-aging products is the inclusion of a revolutionary ingredient: patented extract from the aforementioned French melon, which is designed to visibly reduce the signs of aging.

I recently got the opportunity to test out this "As-Seen-On-TV" skin care system and I'm very pleased with its results. I was first impressed with the beautiful packaging and generous size of each item in the kit. Here are the 7 steps and the corresponding products in the Meaningful Beauty Age Maintenance System. I'll review them one by one.

Step 1: Cleanse-Skin Softening Cleanser
Step 2: Protect - Maintenance 1 Day Moisture w/ SPF 20
Step 3: Repair - Maintenance 2 Night Fluid
Step 4: Revitalize - Eye Cream
Step 5: Purify - Facial Masque
Step 6: Condition - Décolleté and Neck Cream
Step 7
: Renew - Glowing Serum

Skin Softening Cleanser: Cleansing is an essential part of our everyday skin care regimen. The Meaningful Beauty cleanser is creamy and gentle, with a light scent. It uses a non-irritating formula and non-foaming texture. It did take me some time to getting used to a cleanser that does not foam. But it makes rinse-off like a breeze and leaves my face feel clean and soft. Cindy Crawford even uses it without water when she's on-the-go. The only complaint I have about the product is the way it dispenses. I'd prefer a squeezable tube to its current flip-cap bottle because the former provides a better control over the amount to dispense.

Maintenance 1 Day Moisture SPF 20: Since sun damage is one major cause of premature aging, I'd always prefer a day cream or moisturizer with extra sun protection. I love the relatively higher SPF level of the day moisture. I also like that it's lightweight, fast-absorbing, and not heavily scented. It does a great job nourishing my dry skin and locking in moisture during the day. Only a fair amount of the product goes a long way.

Maintenance 2 Night Fluid: We all know how important it is for our skin to repair and rejuvenate its damages due to daytime exposure to harmful irritants when we sleep. The night fluid does just that: helping renew and revitalize skin overnight with 11 key ingredients. Again it's lightweight, fast-absorbing and long-lasting. I wake up feeling my skin softer and smoother. This is my favorite from the kit.

Eye Cream: Eyes are most vulnerable to signs of aging: puffiness, dark circles and fine lines, which give away our age almost instantly. The Meaningful Beauty eye cream uses an extra rich antioxidant formula to help smooth fine lines and wrinkles around the eyes. It has been recommended by Cindy to be used with a concealer for best results. Personally I don't have noticeable fine lines or wrinkles to attest to some of the claims of this product, but it does seem to brighten my eyes especially when they're sleep deprived.

Facial Masque: The Meaningful Beauty facial masque is very easy to use and to rinse off. It's designed to deep clean our skin by lifting dead surface skin cells and impurities. It visibly smooths and brightens my face within 20 minutes. If you're looking for immediate results, then you'll love the facial masque.

Décolleté and Neck Cream: This is a unique component of the age maintenance system. It's targeted on the often neglected area of neck and chest, which could easily give us away. It absorbs quickly and helps smooth my skin and even my skin tone. It's especially useful for protecting our skin in summer, when we tend to expose the targeted area more often. I wish this cream had SPF in it as well. You can get this FREE with every order.

Glowing Serum: With soy protein, marine botanicals, minerals, vitamin C and antioxidants as the key ingredients, the glowing serum is design to make your skin glow with an instant pick-me-up. I use it in the morning before applying the day moisture and it makes my face feel refreshed and nourished. It's not as fast-aborbing as the other products in the kit though.

Meaningful Beauty Age Maintenance System is good for all skin types and is very affordable. The introductory 30-day kit as I described above costs only $29.95 plus S&H. The price stays the same if you enroll in their home delivery program. If you're not completely satisfied with its results, you can also get a full refund under their 60-day money back guarantee.

This entire skincare line is very appealing! I think the Revitalize Eyes Eye Cream is at the top of my list because has natural botanicals in it that combat the appearance of puffiness, dark circles and fine lines and make tired eyes look tighter and lifted. That sounds good to me, I most definitely don't get enough sleep and my eyes are the first place that it shows. I would love to try this skincare line and especially this wonderful sounding eye cream! Thanks so much for the chance to enter.

Okay, I know I'll spell this wrong the Decollete (wow it was in spell check, love that spell check) and Neck Creme is something that appeals to me. Recently I was driving and glanced in the rear view mirror. I had bumped it and it was accidentally directed at my neck. Ewwwww! It looked awful. I need help!
