Hey There - Hi There,
My review of two skin care lines - Meaningful Beauty & Serious SkinCare geared towards maturing skin - combating signs of aging etc... Just a side note: I did trials within 2 1/2 months of each other so as to not to interact with one another and let my skin react and recover from both lines if needed.
Price for Meaningful Beauty said it was $39.95 but if you keep products the total was $149.95!!!! A pretty penny - you do get bonus products and discount if you subscribe to automatic renewal - ( I don't do that )
Serious SkinCare was $79.95 period - you could get discount as well if did the auto renew - again chose not to.
I will say the Rep I spoke with from Meaningful Beauty was very pushy, wanting to add & add & add had difficult time getting just what I wanted and off the phone -took over 15 min to order - way too long in my opinion since I had no questions...
The Serious SkinCare Rep - was lovely - fast - not pushy - ordered and off the phone in less than 5 minutes - offered support if needed and threw in some extra samples. ( NICE!!!)
Meaningful Beauty - caused irritation - cleanser did not remove all my eye make-up and was a bit confusing to use - I had to keep referring to directions ( very unlike me ) with the eye lift cream I noticed no results - it added moisture but did not last - the bonus capsules were nice but not part of basic regimen - after a week I got little white bumps on my face and small breakouts - I expect some changes with new products possibly bringing up things - sometimes to bring on the good you have to get rid of bad, but this was not good. My makeup did not lay well over the products either, piling up where eye cream was used so my verdict I sent back and will not be trying or reffing my friends to use.
Serious SkinCare - took a bit longer than I expected to arrive (10days), packaging a little plain but the products worked really well! My 40 something combo skin Loves It! The cleanser was fine - ( I like my tired and true Clinique 3 Step ) but this was a very good alternative. The eye cream was super - did not travel or move into eye - was plumping and had good moisture hold. The face/neck moisturizer was not too heavy & the Retinol A Force XR very nice and non irritating - my makeup went on wonderful with the bonus primer they sent - it even has an iridescence to it like MAC's Strobe Cream.
Neither set came with a Toner/Clarifying lotion that I have with Clinique ( cant live without ) but the Serious SkinCare was the clear winner!!! Just ordered the pre-soaked retionol pads so even younger looking skin is just around the corner.
Thanks for stopping by,
