I think beauty serum is one of the most important part of my nightly routine. I started to integrate serum into my routine when I received a complimentary sample from Lancome (Genefique). Once I saw how smooth and radiant my skin looked, I knew I wanted to continue to use serums at night. But we all know that Lancome comes with a hefty price tag - at about $86 per bottle. While I loved the results, I couldn't convince myself to shell out $86 every time I had to repurchase. So what's a girl to do?
Look for a dupe, of course! If you're familiar with this blog, you'll know that I usually purchase drugstore brands. Sometimes, I find that the products and results I get from drugstore brands is equivalent or better than department store or high-end products.
After doing some research, I decided to get the Youth Code serum by L'oreal. It worked great, and I was just about to repurchase, when Influenster informed me I was getting the Meaningful Beanty Creme de Serum to review. What perfect timing!
Meaningful Beauty is founded by model Cindy Crawford. She worked with Dr. Jean-Louis Sebagh (an anti-aging specialist) to create the skincare line.
My little VoxBox arrived and here's what I found inside:
A deluxe sample size of the creme de serum and an info postcard. I started to use the serum that very night. Every time I try out a new skincare product, one of my main concerns is "Is this going to break me out?". I'm happy to say that this product didn't break me out on bit!
The serum is in a little cylinder bottle, complete with a pump. The deluxe sample I got has 0.5 FL OZ of product. The full size has 1 FL OZ.
I also really like the little swirl of the product.
The pump is easy to use, and easily controlled if you don't want too much product at once. I use about a pump and a half for my entire face. The formula is super light. It feels extremely smooth and creamy. I've never tried a serum that's so velvety. It's very moisturizing so sometimes I skip moisturizer.
