There are a host of beauty products on the market that claim to redefine the affects of aging and skin care, aimed at offering a lot of promise to middle aged woman who definitely don’t want to show their age. Cindy Crawford’s Meaningful Beauty and Victoria Principal’s Reclaim are two of the most popular products on the market. Both products target women who are looking for a worthy product effective at reducing wrinkles and fine lines, reversing sun damage as well as preventing premature skin aging. Meaningful Beauty reviews as well as Reclaim consumer reviews have been overwhelmingly positive and both products consist of a full skin care line that is to be used daily replacing all other products collecting dust in the medicine cabinet. So which one is best? You might have to try them both to decide; but the following information may disclose which one is your best bet as far as a new, age reducing skin care regime.
Cindy Crawford’s Meaningful Beauty skin care line has been developed and backed by a dermatologist by the name of Dr. Sebagh who is well known as the skin care specialist to the stars. The product line is based on scientific research showing that collagen and anti-oxidants are the leading beneficial nutrients when it comes to our skin and the key ingredient is an extract from a rare French melon that contains a high level of antioxidants. Meaningful Beauty has a very distinct smell to its skin care products which is the result of the rare melon. Consumer reviews suggest that the smell is very appealing. The makers of Meaningful Beauty have literally patented the phrase “age maintenance” and claim that this product with antioxidants, collagen, lipids, coenzymes and minerals will not just diminish wrinkles and fine lines but prevent new ones as well. This Meaningful Beauty skin care line comes with a 30 day introductory offer of $29.99 and a money back guarantee and the price jumps to $110 for 3 months after the trial period. This makes Meaningful Beauty not just revolutionary, but well priced for the average user as well.
One of the downfalls to this system is that the products and creams only have an SPF of 20. While the smell is appealing to most, there are some consumers who felt that it was too strong and even overpowered perfumes. Most consumers who used the product as designed (meaning all the products from the wash, scrubs to the lotions and night time creams) saw some results and it seems to be effective at removing redness and making skin much softer. Some dermatologists, however, claim that Meaningful Beauty’s claims to undo the affects of sun damage are false because sun damage drastically reduces the elasticity and deeper layers of the skin. All in all, the product seems to receive a rating of anywhere from 7-10 (out of 10) from consumers, which indicates that the product is useful and effective as designed.
Victoria Principal’s answer to Meaningful Beauty is a skin care line called Reclaim. Reclaim has become vastly popular probably in part because of its low introductory offer for a 30 day supply of $19.95. One of the secrets to Reclaim, part of the Principal Secret line, is the patented technology of moisture lock which ensures that the products deliver a time released moisture seal that will help to reduce lines and wrinkles. The science behind Reclaim is that by offering a continuous flow of moisture to the epidermis facial skin; it will remain pliable and the appearance will be smoother, softer and younger. Whether Reclaim is challenged with sun damage, frown or brow lines, it is the moisture that is the key to the products age reduction claims. The products also include exfoliates and a minimal SPF of 20. Reclaim is also sure that consumers will be pleased that they also offer a money back guarantee and they do have excellent offers for the first 3 months of use that can reduce the monthly cost anywhere from $5-15 dollars per month.
Reclaim has received positive reviews as a whole. Most consumers do recognize that their skin feels softer, more pliable and that fine lines are reduced within the first week of usage. Other consumers felt that the ingredients were too greasy and left a residue on the face that caused inadvertent breakouts.
Essentially, both of these products are valuable skin care lines. One of the problems is that both websites have excellent pricing structures for the first month until the third but then the prices jump up drastically. Unfortunately, few customers are aware of this at the onset! For women who have very dry skin, the Reclaim system may work a little better since it has been developed with moisture in mind. For other women who suffer with acne, redness or do not have overly dry skin, the Meaningful Beauty skin care system may work better as it is more abrasive and has some harsher ingredients in it that may help eliminate acne. It might be wise for consumers to enroll in the free trial period and try both products side by side to see which one works the best. Keep in mind that canceling both products in a timely manner is important to keep your account from being charged which has been the largest complaint by consumers for both products.
