Glowing serum...I think this is supposed to be Meaningful Beauty's spin on Clarins Beauty Flash Balm. It's the same color and similar texture. And the effects are supposed to be the same, I think. But...as with all of the Meaningful Beauty products I've tried...it just doesn't do much of anything. It's another layer to put on. It's another added step. It's...not much of anything, but a bother. I wasn't blown away by anything in the Meaningful Beauty line. When I purchased, I used them regularly but after not seeing any difference of any kind, put them away. And no one I know has wanted to take them off my hands when I ask. I still have little odds and ends I'm trying to use up from the time I made the mistake of ordering a set. :/ I do not recommend.
What the heck is GLOWING serum supposed to do anyway? For that matter, what is Meaningful Beauty supposed to be? If it's supposed to put color in my face, no thanks! I found that it did absolutely nothing. It's just an extra step to a very confusing regime. This is all hype and no results. If anything, it works ok as a primer for under makeup. It does seem to make a slightly better pallet for a base. That is how I will be using mine and then NO re-order, for sure.
My mom bought the Meaningful Beauty (dumb name, IMO) products on an impulse while watching an infomercial (she's always getting suckered in by those things!)...anyway, she used them a couple of times & then gave them to me, since she's not one to really follow any kind of regimen/routine. I am reviewing product separately.
I'm not really sure what the point of this "glowing serum" is, but at first I thought maybe it was some kind of illuminating moisturizer, but it isn't. It didn't make me "glow" at all & what's worse is that it smells terrible.
At least it didn't break me out. That's the only good thing I can say about it, which isn't much of an endorsement!
Avoid Meaningful Beauty if you have any skin sensitivity at all. I had to send the whole works back, mind you they were very good about it when I called. This serum made my face glow all right---BRIGHT RED!!! Never had that problem before with any product. It looked like I had a second degree sunburn! Weird because I only had that reaction to the serum. Anyway, back it went, and I did get my refund, no problem.
I have been using the meaningful beauty complete system, but will review each in about a month to ensure an accurate review...... after 2 weeks, I can say this product is great already. I use it under makeup and I have that beautiful inner glow only youthful and pregnant women seem to posses. I work the midnight shift so looking fresh and well rested is a challenge. This glowing serum is exactly what it claims. You glow without looking shiny or plastic. I tend to stay away from any glow or shine product because I have combination / oily skin and they usually make me look like a greasy disco ball. This serum is completely different from the rest. It's wonderful.
I love the smell. I love all the products in the kit.I see my skin looks smoother.A lot of tanning and sun has damaged my skin.
It is a little expensive,though.Over time of consistent use, your skin looks better.So far,I really havent tried anything else that really works as well.
-Made my face glow

-good for your face
-makes your makeup go on nicely (can replace your primer)
-can only get online
Smells so nauseating.... I can't even stand to use it. i have to wash my hands after and hold my breath... ugh..... doesn't absorb too well so the smell lingers. Never using again. Thank god I only got the sample.
I like the glow that this serum gives my skin. I have been using MB products for 5 months. I find that this serum works better than more expensive ones.
I got this as part of the beginning kit, it's average. Like the rest of the items in the kit, I don't see any improvement but have no adverse reaction from it.
