Results of The 30 Day Meaningful Beauty Serum Test – Comparison Shots

meaningful beauty serum results

I’ve been testing Meaningful Beauty’s anti-aging serum for the past 30 days. As mentioned in this post, I received it compliments of Influenster for testing purposes.

I did forget to apply it a few times throughout the month so I may have received better results had I been 100% consistent. I’d say I was consistent about 80% of the time. Here’s a comparison shot from Day 1 to Day 30

I tried to get the pics as close to the lighting as possible. As you can see, there is no dramatic difference but there is a difference. If you look at each photo closely, you’ll see slight changes. I will continue to use the serum until it’s finished to see if I can achieve even smoother skin.

What I Like About This Anti-Aging Serum

Although my results are not what I would consider definitive, I really like how gentle this serum is on the skin. It melts right into the skin and a little goes a long way.

What do you think? Was the 30 day testing a success or not?

A Peak at The Inluenster #MeaningfulBeauty VoxBox



I will be 45 years old in just 2 months. For quite a few years now I’ve been actively showing concern for my skin. And while women of color tend to get wrinkles much later in life than other races, it’s still a good idea to pay close attention to our skin and it’s “potential” concerns before they arise.

In this video I share a sneak peak of the #MeaningfulBeauty VoxBox. It contains an anti-wrinkle serum that I will be testing for the next 30 days.  At the end of the 30 days I will share my before and after photos.

My Quickie Beauty Tips


When you think of beauty, what comes to mind? Hair? Make-up? Skin care?

quick beauty tips

It’s all of the above really but the quickie beauty tips I’m going to share have nothing to do with hair (not that I don’t have tips for that!).  I’m thinking that you can probably pull your hair together pretty quickly so that it looks decent but you may need to do a little extra to prepare the “rest” of you :-)

When you have a last minute social function (ie. a date, happy hour) to attend after being at the office (or school) all day, you will  want to “freshen up.” Here are some tips to help you get the job done in record time:

  • Keep eyeliner, mascara and lip gloss on hand at all times. These are the basics and can freshen up your look in just a couple of minutes. There’s no need to add blush and eye shadow. These 3 will having you looking cute in no time!
  • Not into lip gloss? You can rock a red lip with the red lipstick of your choice. I recommend a matte red for a polished look. Plus, it can work double time as a blush if you want to look even more made up.
  • Keep a small roll on bottle of LaVanila natural fragrance oil in your purse. It’s a light all natural fragrance oil made from essential oils that lifts your mood too!


  • Never leave home without your oil blotter sheets! Even if you don’t have oily skin, you can use them to touch up smudges of makeup. More often than not though, your skin will have some form of oil that needs to be blotted away.
  • Keep some eye cream on hand in case of “emergencies.” Eyes tend to get puffy throughout the day. Since, I work near a Whole Foods, I scored some samples of eye creme which I keep in my purse.


I’m a pretty low maintenance kind of gal but I can freshen up my look with these few simple tips. You can too!
