Can you believe this woman is 60 years old? I don’t even care if she’s had work done, her skin is absolutely stunning. And I want to be just like her. I don’t plan on dying my hair but I would if it made me have this glowing complexion.
Instead I’ll have to settle for using some of the Christie Brinkley Authentic Skincare and hope for the best. I’m starting with CLOSE UP which was sent for this article. This is a product I want to savor. It’s my “dress up” skincare product. I have used it for everyday use but now I’m using it more for out to lunch with friends, out for dinner with other friends, and party time.
CLOSE UP INSTANT WRINKLE REDUCER AND TREATMENT is the official name. The name tells you exactly what to expect from the product. It helps with all the small wrinkles and lines that we want to disappear even temporarily.
When I applied Close Up I rubbed it on in a circular movement and let it sit. I usually did this just prior to my eyeshadow application which is always my first step in makeup. I gave it time to dry thoroughly and I did press it in to set it. After my eyes were done I’d continue with the rest of my skincare and face makeup.
Here is what CLOSE UP tells us to expect:
- Immediate sensation of tighter and smoother-looking skin.
- Potent formula maximizes anti-wrinkle effects.
- Smooth under-eye bags and puffiness.
- Tightens skin on contact and takes years off appearance.
- Lasts for hours and can be reapplied throughout the day.
- Will wash off easily with water and no make-up remover required.
- Breakthrough discovery that tightens skin on contact to take years off appearance.
Here’s my response:
I don’t think it took years off my appearance but it did tighten somewhat and give me smoother looking skin where I applied it. I concentrated the treatment on the areas I need help: my crow’s feet, under my eyes, the nasolabial lines and those pesky marionette lines. I used it in conjunction with other skincare and even with similar products.
CLOSE UP provided me with temporary tightening. Enough though to make me feel I looked my best. It dries clear so it’s easy to touch up if you think you need to during your time out.
Two of the ingredients stand out – Neodermyl™ and LIFTONIN®-XPRESS.
Neodermyl is an energy source that helps recharge the skin, it has copper in it which helps with collagen production. Liftonin -XPress is the ingredient that gives the instant tightening effect. If you have deeper wrinkles this is especially good to help smooth those out especially on the eye area and forehead.
I know I’m never going to look as young as Christie but why not give it everything I can? This is a cruelty free, vegan line according to the website.
The only complaint I think you’d have with this is the price. On the CB website it’s priced at $79.95 but at Kohl’s it’s priced at $69. You can’t use Kohl’s coupons on this prestige line but you can earn and redeem Kohl’s cash so that’s a way to make this more affordable. I’ll have to pay more attention to my Kohl’s emails from now on. I want to look softer under and around my eyes especially.
Have you tried anything from Christie Brinkley Authentic Skincare? Would you be willing to? I’m ready to try more, just don’t expect me to go blonde. — Marcia
