Skincare Sunday — Meaningful Beauty New Eye Masks and Deluxe Starter Kit

Hi All!  I started this series a couple of months ago and only posted once.  Oh well! I still think focusing on new or amazing skincare products each week is a great idea!

This Sunday I’m featuring Meaningful Beauty.  This is Cindy Crawford’s skincare brand (with French anti-aging specialist Dr. Jean-Louis Sebagh).  I have reviewed Meaningful Beauty before, but they have new eye masks and a fun travel size kit that will be amazing for summer trips!

Here is what I received for my honest review:

Meaningful Beauty Revive & Brighten Eye Masques

Meaningful Beauty Revive & Brighten Eye Masques ($52 USD) –This new product claims:

  • Awaken eyes to appear more youthful and gorgeous with Meaningful Beauty‘s Revive & Brighten Eye Masque – ultra-hydrating gel eye patches.
  • Each pair is infused with powerful anti-aging ingredients to visibly smooth and plump eyes – and can also be used on smile and frown lines!
  • Cindy’s supermodel secret: Use daily or as a quick pick-me-up when on the go.

What I think: I don’t usually wear eye gel masks, but I am really enjoying these! They can be worn right under the eyes, at the side of the eyes where crows feet form or even on the smile lines. I find that they firm and brighten wherever I place them, especially under my eyes. Plus, they come with a spatula to make them easy to get out of the jar.  They are a bit slippery, so I press them on to make sure that they stay on the full 10 minutes.

What I think:  This is a great set to try a variety of Meaninful Beauty products and it’s so  nice for travel! My current favorite product in the bunch is the Dark Spot Correctly Treatment.  I apply it on dark spots at night and they fade a bit each morning. I also love the Melon Serum, Overnight Retinol cream and the eye cream.  This is such a beautiful anti-aging line!

Skincare Picks For Fall From Derma E, Klairs and Meaningful Beauty

Hi all! It’s October and the weather either has or will be turning colder soon! In Kansas City, one day it’s in the 80’s the and the next it’s in the 60’s. It’s been crazy!

When the weather does change, I also like to change up my skincare. My sensitive skin gets drier and I am already seeing dry patches.  Here are the products I have been testing out and they have been sent for my honest review:

DERMA E Very Clear Acne Cleanser ($15.50 USD) and Very Clear Acne Spot Treatment ($11.50 USD) — These are both great products for helping acne-prone skin.

The cleanser is great for removing built-up oil and makeup to help unclog pores, promote clear skin and prevent breakouts.It contains an Anti-Blemish Complex of natural ingredients Tea Tree, Willow Bark, Rosewood, Lavender and Chamomile and delivers natural antibacterial and antiseptic properties leaving skin purer, clearer and healthier. I love how clean it leaves my skin without stripping it!

Even thought I do have clogged pores, I don’t break out as often anymore, but the acne spot treatment helps clear up those surprise pimples that come out of nowhere!  It delivers natural antibacterial and antiseptic properties to help clear the complexion and prevent blemishes while reducing redness and sensitivity. It may be used as often as necessary whenever breakouts occur to calm and soothe red, irritated skin.  I love that it’s not harsh!

KLAIRS Soft Airy UV Essence SPF 50 ($23 USD) — This is an everyday sun protector for sensitive skin, which I have. As is it water-based, it holds a gel-type texture to give a soft weightless and light finish. Also with its high SPF and PA level, it completely guards the skin against UVA, UVB without leaving any greasiness or white cast.

I have been using this every morning.  It sinks right in to my skin and is a great base for primer and foundation.  It doesn’t really have a scent and it is so nice on my very sensitive skin! Since it isn’t heavy, I think this is perfect for using all year long.  It is so important to wear SPF every day!

Meaningful Beauty is such a gorgeous brand!  This is Cindy Crawfords line of anti-aging products.  The line has lots of different products from cleansers, to moisturizers to treatments.

The products from left to right are the Environmental Protecting Moisturizer Broad Spectrum SPF 30 Sunscreen,  Youth Activating Melon Serum, Overnight Retinol Repairing Crème, Skin Softening Cleanser.

These are all so nice and work well with my sensitive skin!  The cleanser is easy to use and doesn’t dry out my skin. The day cream is very nice, and we all know that SPF is very important! The serum is very luxurious! It sinks into the skin quickly and leaves skin glowing!  I’ve noticed that my lines have become less noticeable. It could also be the wonderful retinol night cream.  That really makes my skin look smoother and clearer.

Meaningful Beauty Crème de Serum

I was sent a deluxe sample of Meaningful Beauty by Cindy Crawford Crème de Serum for my honest opinion by Influenster. Have you heard of Influenster?  It is a great site that you can join to receive and review samples of beauty, food and other great items.  If you would like an invite, leave a comment and I will be happy to send you one!

Here is the description of the serum: The Meaningful Beauty Crème de Serum takes a triple approach to combating the signs of aging with three powerful anti-aging ingredients: superantioxidant melon complex, anti-aging peptides and hyaluronic acid. Combining the power of a serum with the rich, moisturizing effects of a crème, this crème de la crème treatment is designed to help protect, increase hydration and prevent the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

More details:

  • Available as part of the Meaningful Beauty New Advanced Anti-Aging System.
  • Combines the best properties of a serum (concentration and potency) with the best properties of a cream (rich, moisturizing texture).
  • Formulated to help to visibly reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and leave skin soft and more supple.
  • Designed to help promote a smoother, more even toned, radiant complexion.

What I think:  I have tried other Meaningful Beauty products in the past and have really liked them, especially the cleanser!  So, I was really excited to try this serum.

The serum is thick, and almost had the feel of a primer.  When applied, it sinks right into my skin and leaves it feeling smooth and looking more even.  I used it (all) for a few weeks and really like what it did to my skin, and was upset when it was empty! I feel that it made my fine lines less noticeable and my skin tone smooth and even. Great Product!
