As a new mum I really think it is important to keep up a good skin care regime with all the hormones and lack of sleep its essential to feed the skin good quality products to keep it in tip top condition. I really liked Meaningful Beauty by Cindy Crawford; this anti ageing skin care range was effective and easy to use.
I really liked the cleanser, it was in an easy to use pump dispenser so no spills and it was non foaming which I like. It suggests using a face cloth to remove the product, I used a muslin cloth and found this gave me an extra clean feeling but without that awful tightness that some cleansers leave.
I tried out the face mask in the bath as this is the little bit of me time that I get. Once applied the mask has an instant tingling and tightening feeling I could almost feel the mask drawing out any impurities there may be in my skin. After fifteen minutes I removed the mask and I definitely think I looked more radiant and my skin appeared clearer!
I like that this system has separate night and day cream as the skin has different requirements during the day and night. The night cream is thicker and more luxurious which left my thirsty skin feeling sated, my only complaint being by morning my skin did feel a little dehydrated so it probably wasn’t quite rich enough for my skin.
The day cream is nice and light and provides a good base for make up, is easy to apply and just sinks into the skin. It’s a shame it has a low SPF (eight) as I like to protect my skin with a high factor all year round, even winter light can cause damage to skin.
The eye cream which I applied twice daily (which is essential to anybody over twenty five as this is the area in which we start to show the first signs of ageing) was nice and light since anything too heavy can have the reverse effect and cause ageing. I also find any creams that are too rich make my skin break out in milk spots – yuk!
I really liked the idea of a separate cream for the décolleté and neck these areas I sadly neglect. I moisturise my face but I forget about my chest and neck another hot spot for ageing, so this routine made me take notice and look after these delicate areas.
The last product in the kit was a bit of a life saver; my first evening out after having my little boy was to an RAF ball and everybody makes a real effort. I used the glowing serum and I think it definitely gave me an extra boost – I did get lots of compliments that night so it did the job!
Over all I think this is a really good skin care set it made me think about those areas that I so often neglect. It doesn’t take up lots of time so is great for busy mums and if you are travelling its small, compact and easy to carry. I give Cindy nine out of ten!
