Meaningful Beauty Crème de Serum

*Meaningful Beauty Serum was went to me via the Influenster VoxBox program for reviewing purposes.

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! 

Packaging:
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.



Application:
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.

Crème de Sérum


This crème de la crème treatment takes a triple approach to combating the signs of aging with three powerful anti-aging ingredients: superantioxidant melon complex, anti-aging peptides and hyaluronic acid. Combining the power of a serum with the rich, moisturizing effects of a crème, this super-boost is designed to help protect, increase hydration and prevent the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

I have to say this serum is all it's cracked up to be. My skin is smooth, and feels very hydrated. I'm seriously considering ordering the 30 day 5 piece system. (Purchase Meaningful Beauty here)
