Skin Care Review: Meaningful Beauty by Cindy Crawford

by Stephanie

Adverse Effects

Definitely minimized pores and blackheads! Skin felt great, glowing and moisturized.

Terribly stingy even after 45 days.

I was thrilled to see the infomercial by Cindy Crawford and how her Meaningful Beauty line was full of natural skin cleaners, brighteners and all around "fixers". My shipment came about 2 weeks later. I used the skin cleanser, and immediately it started to make me cry! It hurt so bad, especially in the small crease around my nose and under my eyes. I then tried the mask, lotion and eye creams and they all produced the same effect. I joked with my girlfriend about how my "face was glowing and looked so clean and bright, but that I didn't know if burning the top layers off my skin off was worth it!" After 4 days I called customer service and the girl advised me to use only the MB line and not to mix with anything else, and that I should give it a 30 day try, they increased my 30 day money back guarantee to 90 days. I continued to use the MB line, after about a week I could use the cleanser and lotion without it burning, but the mask and eye cream continued to burn my skin. I called back after 45 days and told the representative that I needed to cancel, that I loved certain parts of the treatments, but I couldn't see pay for products that I am too afraid to use. She canceled my subscription without any problem. I didn't ask for a refund as I did find positive results and felt they were worth the two months I paid. Positives: My nose has always been plagued with huge pores and blackheads, I fell in love with Biore strips -- until MB cleanser -- within 1 week my pores were much smaller, by the end of two, I had no more visible blackheads and they pores were almost too small to see. This was a huge plus for me. My skin around my cheeks always seemed to be glowing and bright. I went without coverup and blush for a long time while using MB. The fine lines in the middle of my brow and around my mouth were minimized by the end of my 45 day trial. I didn't use the eye cream due to the stinging sensation, but I imagine if I could have, those lines around my eyes would have disappeared too.

Its well worth a try if the product line doesn't irritate your skin.
