Inspired by the vision of Christie Brinkley, supermodel, actress and mother of three, the Christie Brinkley Authentic Skincare Collection addresses multiple signs of aging and contains products that are formulated to help defend against skin damage.
Just launched, this revolutionary anti-aging skincare line asserts that the “most visible signs of aging skin come from the sun.” The various formulas are derived from “critically acclaimed anti-aging ingredients,” and combined to create nourishing vegan products that help “roll back damage and protect against future damage with better than full spectrum protection.” Most creams only defend against UVA and UVB, which represent just 7% of the sun’s rays that reach us. The reality is that 54% of the rays that reach the earth are Infrared rays. This breakthrough product line is among the first in the U.S. to defend against damage from Infrared rays.
Christie collaborated with renowned scientists to develop the Bio-Copper Complex, a proprietary anti-aging skin treatment, which features advanced plant extracts, amino acids and copper to support skin’s anti-aging defenses for smoother, firmer, healthier and younger looking skin. Dr. Doris Day, a favorite of celebrities, shares Christie’s passion for this project and will serve as the Medical Adviser for the line. “As a dermatologist, I have seen the harmful effects of rays,” said Day. “This new collection will help address and fight the signs of aging while bringing greater awareness to the unexpected dangers associated with the sun and other heat sources. There’s nothing like it on the market today.”
I remember Christie Brinkley’s modeling days, and admired her fresh, girl-next-door good looks, so I was very intrigued by this collection. I was especially eager to sample the products sent to me for review.
Infused with award winning anti-aging ingredients that offer UV sun protection (SPF 30), this “clinically proven multi-level, anti-aging treatment” is said to “help correct the most visible signs of aging by supporting the skin’s natural anti-aging defenses and the natural production of collagen.
I used this for several days under my make up and just loved it. It had the silky, delicious feel of a high-end cream, yet it was offering superior sun protection, a real plus since so many products with high SPF can be thick and pasty. My makeup went on easily and my skin felt pampered and nourished. This is my new go-to day cream. I love it!
Recapture 360 Night Anti-Aging Night Treatment, $79.95:
This breakthrough night treatment “supports the skin’s natural nighttime repair process with a unique peptide that is designed to work with the skin’s natural circadian rhythm.” Infused with the proprietary Bio–Copper Complex, it helps firm smooth, plump, and rejuvenate skin during sleep.
Lately I have been using serums at night and liking the results. So it was a switch to sample a thick, rich cream like this. The scent was lovely and fresh, and the feel of this on my skin was great—very rich and nourishing. I expected it would leave a greasy residue in the morning, but I am happy to report I was wrong. Despite the lush texture, it absorbed completely by morning—and my skin felt so soft and smooth.
Uplift Firming Neck and Decollete Treatment, $79.95:
A luxurious, fast working cream that is said to, “target the decollete and neck area with ingredients that help firm, smooth, brighten and rejuvenate the look of the delicate skin of the neck and chest.” Uplift supports skin’s natural collagen and elastin production for a firmer, smoother neckline.
I confess that I never use any product on my decollete, so I was interested to try this one. I found it to be another rich, creamy formula that went on easily and absorbed well. I can’t say it reduced the look of wrinkles or tightened the area in question. But it did leave my skin very smooth and supple, and that’s a big plus. I would continue using it, though perhaps a good body cream would offer similar results.
Complete Clarity Facial Cleansing Wash, $32.95:
This light foaming gel cleanser was effective and also gentle on skin. No post-shower tightness or dryness after washing my face, and my skin was clean of all traces of make up. Another must-have in the beauty regime.
Complete Clarity Daily Facial Exfoliating Polish, $34.95:
This creamy scrub boasts “a strong exfoliating action that refines skin texture, clear pores, removes dulling dirt and dead skin and stimulates skin turnover leaving skin feeling, purified, invigorated, and smoothed.” I tried it a couple of times in the shower and found it to be non-abrasive. I would continue to use this a couple of times a week as a pick-me-up for my skin.
The line also includes Refocus Eye Serum Infusion Treatment and Close Up Instant Wrinkle Reducer and Treatment.
