Has anyone used the meaningful beauty line? I've had some friends tell me they like it, but I wanted a broader review before I purchased.

Thank you! I've actually NEVER been on a chat or message board or anything (I'm sure you can tell by my lack of smiley faces and pictures and such), but alas, I have a baby who woke me up tonight and now it seems I have a bad case of insomnia! I figured I might as well make use of my time! It's better than raiding the fridge like I would typically do.

Yes, I have been using Meaningful Beauty for about 6 months now. I love it and find that the products are uncomplicated and high quality. The key to using these products is not to use other products with them. Give them a fair try and use them alone for a few months. I have found that my skin is clearer and I have fewer breakouts. My skin texture is nicer and overall I really like the effects. I love the twice weekly mask and never forget to use it.

Re: Cindy Crawford meaningful beauty

Any new thoughts/updates on everyone's opinions of this skincare line? I just caught the infomercial for the first time over the weekend. I was really tempted to pick up the phone, but I held back (at least until I could get on the board here and do some "research"). Anyone had any problems with breakouts from this line?

I didn't even know that Cindy Crawford had a skin care line. Sorry, Amy. I hope someone will be able to help you out soon.

Re: Cindy Crawford meaningful beauty

Cindy Crawford actually presented this line on QVC when she first introduced it. Apparently it didn't do very well, because her shows were yanked shortly thereafter.

Re: Cindy Crawford meaningful beauty

I didn't know Cindy Crawford has a skin care line either. But then, celebrities nowadays are always trying to launch new lines of skin care, makeup, jeans, perfume and so on

We have the infomercial here too and I always wondered whether if her range works or not?!

well, if that's your skin, it's beautiful. What's your secret?
I just saw the infomercial too and was curious about it.

Have you actually seen changes that you didn't get with other skin care products? If so, what?

Thanks

Re: Cindy Crawford meaningful beauty

Cindy Crawford has been seeing a plastic surgeon for years. Her product line is a joke and is false advertising. I'm glad I never wasted any money on it.

Just do a Google search of Cindy Crawford Plastic Surgery.

This shouldn't come as any huge surprise. Everyone ages, no one stays 19 forever and there is no miracle cream in a jar that will ever erase the hands of time. Yes even supermodels age, just like everyone else.

have you checked the reviews here on MUT? I'm not sure if anyone has tried and reported back on here about it.

Re: Cindy Crawford meaningful beauty

I used the Meaningful Beauty line for about 4 months. I have both positives and negatives to say about it. On the positive side, I LOOOOVE the way the moisturizers felt - not greasy, wonderfully silky, not too creamy or thick, just beautiful. And they always made my skin feel so nice after applying too, but I believe this is because they probably have a good amout of silicones in them - which is fine. It's not an anti-aging secret weapon, but it does give your skin a nice quality. The reason I stopped using the product was because it was a bit spendy for me, and so I began researching it to see if it really was worth such a big chunk of my budget. (It was only $40 every other month, but I've got a very tiny budget!!) I couldn't find anything here, as I bought it when it was pretty new, but I checked out other reviews online, and especially The Beauty Brains and Paula Begoun, who both have very good science backing their analysis of products. The conclusion: It's great if you like it and can afford it, but the whole "melon" sales pitch is a bunch of hype. It's not going to be a miracle cream. At most, it's just going to make your skin feel really silky. But because of this, it is still going to be beneficial in the sense that it helps keep your skin in good condition for your age. It won't make you 29 again (and yes, Cindy has had lots of plastic surgery), but it will - like many other good (and cheaper) moisturizers on the market - allow you to age gracefully. I would recommend an additional sunscreen, though, as her line's daytime moisturizer is only SPF 8! Kind of odd. The absolute minimum you should use is 15. So anyway, if you like it and can afford it, by all means use it! I still keep my eye out for deals for it on ebay in case I feel like indulging for a month or two. But don't expect it to turn back the clock.

Re: Cindy Crawford meaningful beauty

I used the product for a couple of months. It dried out my face. The customer service is also rude and the product is consistently on back order.

Dissatisfied customer

Re: Cindy Crawford meaningful beauty

I didn't know she had a line.
Honestly I think it's good marketing and nothing more special then the stuff there is already on the market today. It will only hurt your wallet.
But I can be wrong, here it's just a thought.

Re: Cindy Crawford meaningful beauty

I am just now watching the infomercial on this line and looking up reviews.....you either hate it or love it .....I see a lot of both!

My question is ............well then....what do you use!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!?????????????????????????

It seems we can all ask a thousand people what is the best thing to use on your face and get a thousand different answers.

I am willing to spend the money on something that WORKS.....does it? OR...is there something better?

anybody"?

Re: Cindy Crawford meaningful beauty

Hi - I've been using Cindy's product for about three weeks now, religiously, and I think it's aimed for the 50+, but could be dead wrong. I am, however, 50 + and, so far, it seems ok. No reactions, and my skin does feel clean and the moisturizer is smooth and soft. Hang on, I gotta check the SPF. My jar says SPF20, which is great for me, living in SoCal, but I do recall reading someone said it was SPF8 above. Perhaps that's from a newer line.

Having said all that, I already have pretty good skin from staying out of the sun, drinking water, sleeping on my back, blah, blah, but I have no real issues with this product and will continue to use it. My son said my skin looks 'better'. whatever that means.

In the past, I have been a strong advocate for DermaDoctor and still use their cleanser in the shower. The products arrived as advertised and I have no info on how easy it is to return after 30 days, but will keep you posted.

One thing. Does anyone know if there are any peptides in her products (serum especially)? I can't find any literature on that. If not, it's probably not worth the money. On the other hand, if this stuff keeps my skin looking this glowing, I'm sticking with it.

I am a very new member (15 minutes ago), so if someone can tell me what the deal is with the top 3 recommended anti-aging products on the home page here I'd appreciate it. Are they products that you-all have recommended? I see they're all the same try for 30-days, give your cc number, get charged a LOT more than Cindy's, and then return, blah, blah.

Frankly, her ad on tv caught me and I'm hoping for the best.

In short:

The cleanser is really nice and doesn't make my skin tight. Breakouts are no longer an issue at my age, but moisturizing and wrinkle reduction are, so we'll see.
The moisturizer is just fine. No irritation and I wake up with smooth, smooth skin. May not be good for younger skin, tho.
Some stinging with the mask, but have used it twice a week and I notice smaller pores, but don't they all do that?

To be brutally honest, my skin feels the very best when I use good ol' Chanel's body cream on my face. I know. I know, but I'll be darned, it WORKS.

Hope this was helpful. (For the record, the whole neck/decolletage stuff isn't worth it, anywhere. At least I've never found it to be. Just stay out of the sun and moisturize, moisturize and use sunblock. Fake tanning is where it's at, at any age, but especially now.)

As a 50 year old+ CD, who lives life as a woman, I must say that I was pleasantly surprised on how good it work. My face is so smooth & winkle free.

I just received my first shipment of Meaningful Beauty. I may send it back quickly because there's so much fragrance in the creams, and I prefer no fragrance. Also, I noticed that the toner contains triethanolamine, which causes cancer, so I won't be using that.
post #30 of 49

I ordered the starter kit online after watching the infomercials forever. After waiting 3 weeks, the kit arrived and I began using it immediately. After 2 weeks, I noticed my skin hurt and was terribly dry, with patches of roughness and what looked like peeling skin. No matter how much of the creme's I put on my face thinking it was supposed to take off the 'dead skin', my face turned red and the texture became really rough and scaly. 

 

I stopped using the product, called customer service who tried to convince me to accept the automatic delivery every 30 days. I told them I wanted out of the 'club' and have ceased using the product. Now I'm hoping my skin will return to it's normal texture and look, it was pretty good for someone my age.

 

Before I purchased this line, I had read lots of good reviews by people so perhaps it's just my particular skin and sensitivity to something in the products.
