Product Review: Meaningful Beauty Créme de Serum

December 10, 2013

Face SerumSo last month I was the lucky recipient of the Meaningful Beauty Créme de Serum from Influenster. I received this for FREE and am reviewing it here for you tonight. I was a little sad that they just wanted to send me wrinkle serum. lol But I guess that’s the breaks when you are getting up there in years. :)

This is a 15ml bottle, so it is a good size. I have been using it twice a day in the morning and evening. It is supposed to be a combo cream and serum blend. It goes on nice and smooth and you only need a little bit. What I like about this is that it is light and NOT greasy. It also has some scent to it, but it isn’t overpowering. It is supposed to help with fine lines and wrinkles, but to be honest I think I would have to use it a bit longer to really tell if there’s a difference. So watch for a follow up post on that aspect.

It is a combination of superantioxidant melon complex, anti-aging peptides and hyaluronic acid which are all good things for your skin and to help combat the inevitable. AGING. So far, I like the ease of application, low scent and the fact it doesn’t turn my face into a grease pit when I put it on. All of these factors have swayed me to keep trying this product to see if it lives up to the claims.

Website: http://www.meaningfulbeauty.com/

Country: USA

Facebook: http://www.facebook.com/meaningfulbeauty

US Shipping: YES

International Shipping: YES

In looking at their website, it looks like you need to buy the kit to get this product. However you can go and get just the serum at Amazon here. It’s a better deal to get all of the products from their site plus they are offering free shipping on the set.

What about you? Have you tried this product? Do you have other Anti-Aging serums that you would recommend to me or others? If you like to review products, let me know, I have a few Influenster invites to the first people who message me through the contact form or leave your email and name in the comments below.

If you are an international winner it may take more than 30 days to arrive once it has been shipped. PLEASE Allow for this time. :) We are not responsible for lost or stolen items or items that are not shipped. Not that we anticipate ANY of that happening, but we need to put that disclaimer up for everybody. MOST of the contributors are willing to ship worldwide. In the event that your name is chosen for a US only prize, you can either opt to have it shipped to a US person to ship to you, or we will have to re-draw. This is why your name and country are mandatory entries on the Rafflecopter widget.
