Meaningful Beauty Review
Benjamin Franklin once said only two things are certain in life: death and taxes. Not that we don’t agree with his words of wisdom, but he forgot about one essential thing: aging skin.
Wrinkles, sagging skin, dark spots, and a dull complexion – these become our enemies as we age. As much as we’re trying to accept the inevitable with grace, we would lie if we would tell you that we aren’t always looking for a way to cheat time.
That’s how we came across Meaningful Beauty, a line of anti-aging products that promise to turn back the clock and help you rediscover your skin’s youthful radiance. And, with former supermodel Cindy Crawford as their image, we were curious, to say the least.
Does Meaningful Beauty works? Is there any science behind the hype? Should you spend your money on this product or use it to buy other skincare products?
We’ll try to answer all these questions and even more in this article.
The Meaningful Beauty Story
In case you’ve been living under a rock until now (or you’ve been born in the ’00, in which case you don’t need anti-aging products yet – lucky you!) you’re probably familiar with Cindy Crawford and her glowing, flawless skin. At 51 years old, she doesn’t look a day over 35. Some say it’s genetics, but Cindy recognized that she uses a handful of beauty tricks to keep her skin radiant and wrinkle-free.
About a decade ago, the supermodel teamed up with her dermatologist, Dr. Jean-Louis Sebagh, to create a line of products that could slow down the signs of aging. The duo created Meaningful Beauty to give women with dry skin (although the serum can work for those with oily skin too), a product that can nourish their skin and give them a youthful and radiant look.
The power of Meaningful Beauty lies in a rare melon that contains a super-antioxidant known as superoxide dismutase (SOD). But, we’ll talk about it later.
According to Meaningful Beauty, several factors cause wrinkles: sun’s harmful UV rays, free radicals, dryness, poor skin elasticity, and gravity. We can’t fight gravity or the natural aging process, but we can combat the effects of sun damage, free radicals, and dryness.
Meaningful Beauty promises to help with several issues that all aging women face:
- Help smooth the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
- Give your skin a bright and youthful look.
- Improve skin firmness and elasticity.
- Protect your skin from the aggression of environmental factors.
Not only that the product promises to improve all these problems, but the Meaningful Beauty website even claims that if you use the creams correctly, you can see results in as little as four weeks.
That’s a bold statement. So, is there any evidence to support it? As it turns out, there is.
How It Works
As we’ve already mentioned, the secret to the effectiveness of Meaningful Beauty lies in a rare melon that grows only in remote areas of Southern France. This melon contains a powerful antioxidant, SOD, which is believed to be a fountain of youth due to its anti-aging properties.
According to Meaningful Beauty’s website, SOD is believed to be one of the most powerful antioxidants known to men. According to a consumer study of 132 women, 93% of them reported their skin looked healthier and firmer than before and 81% of them claimed they noticed a reduction of fine lines and wrinkles after just eight weeks.
However, other than this study mentioned on the Meaningful Beauty’s website, there is no other relevant research that can provide a consistent picture of the role SOD plays in aging.
In addition to SOD, the products also contain ingredients such as coenzyme Q10, lipoic acid, and minerals that have been shown to help maintain the skin’s health and reduce fine lines.
There was a brief scare regarding Cyclopentasiloxane, a silicone compound used in most beauty products that was believed to be a possible cancer-causing agent. However, no study showed that the compound carries any risk to humans, so the panic slowly succumbed.
Are There Any Side Effects?
Meaningful Beauty can help nurture and moisturize your skin, especially if you have dry skin. However, there are some claims that the coenzyme Q10 may lead to skin irritations when applied topically. That is why we recommend that you consult with your dermatologist before you begin any skincare treatment, whether we’re talking about Meaningful Beauty or other products. Your dermatologist can help you understand your skin type and which ingredients are best suited for it.
What You Get
For just $39.95 plus shipping and handling, you can purchase a kit that includes five essential products:
- Skin Softening Cleanser
- Antioxidant Day Cream with SPF 20
- Crème de Serum
- Lifting Eye Crème
- Ultra-Lifting and Filling Treatment
This kit will last you for 30 days. For $149.85, you can purchase a 90-day supply that includes two additional products: Eye Enhancing Serum and Glowing Serum.
What If You’re Not Satisfied
One of the great things about Meaningful Beauty is that they stand behind their products 100%. Therefore, if you are not satisfied with the results, you can return the kit, and they’ll refund you the purchase price even if the bottles are empty.
The main problem with Meaningful Beauty is that it doesn’t address individual skin types. However, if you have dry skin and you’re sensitive to harsh anti-aging ingredients, such as retinoid, then Meaningful Beauty can be an excellent addition to your daily routine. Its creams and serums have a thick and rich texture that nurtures your skin and make it feel hydrated. Some of the claims are a bit unrealistic, but you can expect to see an improvement in your skin’s overall appearance after several weeks of use.
