An Honest Review of Meaningful Beauty | Beauty Shortcutips

The pressure of modern life can take its toll on our skin. The constant sun exposure, stress, the food we eat, and the pollution in the big city may leave your skin looking and grey and worn out through the years.

While there are a ton of anti-aging creams and concoctions available in the market, it’s hard to tell which ones are worth your time and money. To help you through the decision making process, I’ve laid out a review of one anti-aging brand that piqued my curiosity recently--Meaningful Beauty.

With a high-profile spokesperson like Cindy Crawford, it’s hard to not wonder what this brand has to offer the skincare market. So let’s take a closer look.

What is Meaningful Beauty?

Meaningful Beauty is a skincare line that focuses on delivering anti-aging effects to its users. A-list supermodel and actress Cindy Crawford started the line around 10 years ago in collaboration with Dr. Jean-Louis Sebagh, an international skincare specialist with a star-studded clientele list.

The star ingredient of the original product line is a special melon extract used by Dr. Sebagh as a non-invasive skin treatment for his high-profile clients. Now, they revamped their formula to include another nature-derived ingredient this time from a “rare orchid from the Emerald Coast of France”.

The formula claims to encourage the skin’s natural production of collagen and elastin by providing energy to aging skin cells.

Pros:

  • Main ingredients are derived from nature

  • The product line is small but focused

  • Meaningful Beauty Ultra kit provides a complete skincare set perfect for beginners

  • Company provides a 60-day money back guarantee

Cons:

  • The kit doesn’t come with a night cream

  • Only one, non-customizable kit is available

  • May not be suitable for those with plant allergies

Who is Meaningful Beauty for?

Meaningful Beauty is first and foremost an anti-aging skincare line made for women aged 40 up. The line is best for mature women who are skincare beginners or those looking to change up their routine but doesn’t know where to start.

The kit makes it extremely convenient to get a jumpstart on an anti-aging skincare regimen.

Key Features and Benefits

Now that we covered some of the basics, let’s take a closer look at this product line and see what it has to offer. According to their website, these are the main features and benefits you can expect from Meaningful Beauty products:

  • Smoother, healthier-looking skin
  • More youthful appearance
  • Visibly firmer-looking skin
  • Visible increase in skin’s elasticity
  • Reduction of fine lines and wrinkles

These benefits are pretty standard claims for anti-aging products. Again, the key ingredient is this newer, stronger kind of anti-oxidant found in rare melon from the south of France called superoxide dismutase (SOD). As we all know, antioxidants are quite effective when it comes to lessening the signs of aging and preventing fine lines and wrinkles.

Typical consumer reviews of Meaningful Beauty products include:

FAQ and Additional Tips

Just like any other skin care product, there’s a right way to use it to reap maximum results. Here are a few tips and frequently asked questions about the Meaningful Beauty line to help you make the most out of your products.

How long do you have to wait to see effects?

Effects can be seen as early as 4 weeks after regular and proper use. It’s best if you combine more than one product for your beauty routine.

Is it okay to combine products/use more than one product in one routine?

Given that they do sell the products in a kit, I’d wager they were made to be used together and don’t have any ingredients that would react badly when combined with each other. This is also one reason why I mostly use products within the same line/brand in my routine to make sure they’re compatible.

How in what order should you apply the products?

If you’re familiar with the 10-step Korean skincare routine, you’ll know that the general rule when applying multiple products is to go from light to heavy. Start of with light, watery products like toners or essences before moving on to cream-based and oil-based serums.

As an added tip, always use your ring finger and middle finger as they are the weakest fingers and would lessen the amount of tugging on your skin. Use gentle, upward motions to lift your skin and prevent sagging.

The FInal Verdict

Overall, I’d say the brand is worth giving a shot, especially when you’re just getting started with anti-aging skincare and don’t know where to start. The kit they sell is simple, easy to follow and works great when used together and used regularly.

I also like how the kit is simple but not your regular “cleanse, tone, moisturize” regiment that’s a bit too basic. So if you’re looking to give something new a try, I’d recommend Meaningful Beauty.
