So, for the past month I've been using the line and participating in Meaningful Activities. You can see some of the activities over on my Facebook Page. There are a few things not mentioned there, in truth because I forgot to take pics! Things like bringing donuts in to the ICU for my nursing staff on the week end, etc. It was really nice to have a little extra money each week to think about what was really important to me or would enhance my own life or those around me. I was able to go out to eat with friends and family, purchase a gift for our adopted family at work and I bought a few goodies to enhance the cooking marathon that was Thanksgiving. I have one more activity to post over there later today.
Overall, what are my thoughts on Meaningful Beauty? First, I am pretty impressed with the active ingredients. There's definitely stuff in there that works. After using the line for a month, there are a few products that if I wasn't a product testing beauty blogger, I would just keep using. After trying it out, Meaningful Beauty is definitely a line that I'll be recommending in the future.
In particular I really love the Creme de Serum, the Eye Cream and the Neck Cream. I do really like the Glowing Serum (especially with the added Vitamin C), but the more gel-like/matte formula of the regular serum has won me over for every day use. The Glowing Serum is something that I have been using just as needed, on days that I feel a bit blah or am a bit under the weather for some reason. I'm even using the neck cream (as a non-neck cream girl!) and it's really nice to have the spf in there with all of the other anti-aging goodies.
If you're first starting out with a fairly complete line like this, I really recommend trying out one of the monthly kits. You'll get to try out the whole line for a decent length of time (somewhere in the 4-8 week time period is when you'll start to see results), usually for a pretty discounted price. The 5 piece monthly kit from Meaningful Beauty is under $40 and today there's a code on the site for 50% off! While you can't order the products separately on their site currently (I swear you could before...) there are places that you can order some of the products on their own (Amazon and QVC).
