There’s no denying that the topic of anti-aging is just as hot as ever. It’s everywhere and will be as long as we all continue to, well, age.
There seems to hit a certain point when you start to look in the mirror and spot those dreaded lines. They definitely don’t just land there one day, they’ve been creeping up on you over time, but it sure does feel like one day you went to sleep with a baby face and the next, you’ve woken full of crows feet and under eye bags.
We’ve all learned about prevention – caring for your skin, keeping it clear and makeup free and removing your makeup properly for that matter. Don’t smoke, drink less, eat healthily and you’ll be fine. But what happens when you’ve already skipped that step and are left with skin so unrecognizable staring back at you every morning?
Enter the never-ending battle of anti-aging skincare trials. It does seem to take forever doesn’t it – and the questions that come with it never seem to stop. Will it suit me? This review sounds great, shall I give it a go? How long will it take? How much younger will I look? And while they’re all necessary, they sure do seem to get you down.
So, it’s time we got to the bottom of something great once and for all, don’t you think?

Is this product the answer?
Well, for everyone, I don’t know. Developed with heavy science and one of the world’s leading anti-aging skincare specialists, you’d definitely think so. But, I’m going to show you what I’ve discovered.
With a need to hang on to her mid-twenties skin, Cindy Crawford found Dr. Jean-Louis Sebagh – the renowned skin specialist, dubbed “a world expert in medical anti-aging” by Vanity Fair. With his mission being to simply bring back radiance and youthful feel to tired skin, by slowing down visible signs of aging.
As he puts it, “My goal in this collaboration is to raise the benchmark of the quality of affordable skin care products, so we really bring the best ingredients and try to increase the concentration of ingredients. My job is to really bring this quality into it.”
And his secret? (Because we’re all thinking it – there’s just to be something that sets him apart from others and making him as internationally acclaimed as he is). Being one of the first to use it Dr. Sebagh’s work is based around SOD – the antioxidant found in a rare French melon. It really is that simple!
So, over the past ten years, the pair have teamed up to create an exceptional, yet accessible skincare brand, promising to bring the best in anti-aging to the masses. We’ve heard rave reviews since then, but now with their newer, more advanced range of products, can it be the answer all women (hey, and even men) have been looking for?
In Cindy’s own words, she tells us “I was already in love with Meaningful Beauty®, and now we’ve upped the ante, adding great new products and constantly seeking to improve the ones we love”.
So what does it promise?
To put it simply, this skin care promises to reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles, bring back radiance to the skin and generally brighten up your complexion to ultimately hold on to that youthful look we’ve all been wanting back! You’ll also find a little UVA and UBA protection in there too, to keep your skin protected from harmful rays on a day to day basis.
And how does it work?
The products in the five-step system – Cleanse, Protect, Hydrate, Revitalize and Renew – is what you’ll receive with the new advanced system, including;
- Skin Softening Cleanser (60ml)
- Antioxidant Day Crème SPF20 (15ml)
- Crème de Serum (15ml)
- Lifting Eye Crème Advanced Formula (8ml)
- Firming Chest and Neck Crème (14g)
And at the moment, Meaningful Beauty also seem to be offering the Wrinkle Smoothing Capsules (7 Capsules) as a bonus gift with the set too.
By following the process, skin will be cleansed free from dirt before the day creme is applied, setting your skin up for the day and protecting it from the sun. Then the serum and eye creme get to work, both being packed full hydrating and brightening agents. The collection also provides care for the décolleté and finally, the peptide-based bonus capsules contain a healthy of Dr. Sebagh’s key ingredient for maximum effect.
Or so I’m told. But now it’s time to see if it lives up to the hype. I’ve definitely secure in the knowledge that I’ve got 60 days of testing before I have to repurchase and can get my money back in that time if not sold.
What did you think?
Before I get into it, I want to point out that my skin is relatively normal. I have some days where it’s a little dryer and others where it feels a little combination – but nothing to drastic. I’ve got a few lines around the eyes that I’ve been conscious of and would love to try and combat them now so that they don’t get worse with age – as we’re all aware they do. I’m hoping prevention will be key for me!
Starting with the cleanser – I loved it. Not only did it so just that, but it actually felt refreshing on my skin. It’s definitely a mild one, with not to strong of a smell and leaves a smooth texture to my skin – perfect for a great base.
The cremes, overall, left my skin feeling bright and even gave it a bit of a glow. I think this was mainly due to the serum and the eye creme was great for me. My eyes felt more moisturized and I’d noticed the cakey makeup look I’d been getting recently had eased up.
And would I re-buy?
With the collection I go, probably. I loved that the décolleté area is catered for too as it’s something I’ve not spent a lot of time (or money on). I’m now enjoying taking care of my neck and chest area and working on prevention.
I would say that I do like a night cream however and this set of beauty products doesn’t come with one which is slightly disappointing. But, they are available on the site – so I’m definitely going to be giving this one a go too! I’d definitely say, for a fresh and bright feeling with your skincare, Meaningful Beauty is worth the try.
