What do you change for winter? Christie Brinkley Authentic Skincare review

It’s Makeup Wars Monday and our topic this week is changing from Fall to Winter. I know I could include clothes, shoes/boots, handbags but this is MAKEUP WARS after all so I’m going to tell you about the skincare I’ve got in my arsenal for winter.

Christie Brinkley Authentic Skincare has my vote for a great winter brand. I’ve previously shared with you my feelings about Close Up Instant Wrinkle Reducer & Treatment, Complete Clarity Daily Facial Exfoliating Polish, and Recapture Day + IR Defense Anti-Aging Day Treatment. The love for this line keeps on growing. After I’d been using the Day Cream I was sent Christie Brinkley Authentic Skincare Recapture 360 Night Anti-Aging Night Treatment and later Refocus Eye + IR Defense Serum Infusion Eye Treatment which just intensify my feelings for the Christie Brinkley Authentic Skincare products.

I used Recapture 360 Night Anti-Aging Night Treatment often during the late summer and early fall and each time I used it I knew that this was going to be perfect for winter.

Both the Recapture Day + IR Defense Cream and Recapture 360 Night Treatment have a richness to them that is undeniable. Especially at night when I’m usually less rushed and can devote more time to my skincare routine I notice how wonderful Recapture 360 Night Anti-Aging Night Treatment feels. I love massaging it into my skin. I’ve put it aside though after using it for a month because I know how badly my skin will crave these products once it’s truly winter in Michigan. But every once in a while I sneak it out to get rid of the dry spots that will reappear on my skin.

Christie Brinkley Authentic Skincare Recapture 360 Night Anti-Aging Night Treatment is 360 degrees different from Recapture Day Cream. This night treatment works with your skin’s circadian cycle. When you are resting it works to repair the effects of aging as well as repairs sun damage. It is a fierce fighter against wrinkles so that your skin can appear more firm, smooth and elastic. It contains a bio-copper complex that works to increase your cell’s energy so that you can look like Christie Brinkley – or at least her skin. While you are sleeping the bio-copper complex is working to support the renewal of your skin.

The longer you use these treatments, the more your skin will respond. I think these two can easily be used all year round but with winter approaching, I want to switch back to these luxurious creams.

In addition to the two daily treatments I’ve used Christie Brinkley Authentic Skincare Refocus Eye + IR Defense Serum Infusion Eye Treatment. I am a junkie when it comes to eye creams and serums and can’t get enough of them and I feel honored to have this to use.

Refocus Eye + IR Defense Serum Infusion Eye Treatment also uses the Bio-Copper Complex that’s vital in the Night Treatment. Since this is a serum it’s not as rich feeling as a cream would be but that doesn’t mean it’s not as effective. I’ve realized in the last few months that a serum is wonderful for the fragile skin that surrounds your eyes. As you age you need more help rejuvenating the appearance of your skin. People notice your eye area right away and if that looks revitalized with fewer lines and a brighter appearance then you in turn look younger. I could go on and on about the ingredients that are used to create this award winning line but my experience is why you read these reviews and I’m telling you that I notice all the things I mentioned.

All three products are available at HSN.com, Kohls, and beauty.com. On October 29th Christie Brinkley will be on HSN live to discuss her line. In conjunction with that we’ll have a giveaway for one of these three products but you’ll have to read about it on Tuesday October 27th. I know you’ll want to enter. Who wouldn’t want the chance to find ideal winter skincare? — Marcia

Join the other Makeup Wars bloggers to see how they change for winter. I hope for their sake they don’t have the harshness that we have in the Midwest.

    I’m testing out the instant eye cream and it does give me an instant lift! I’m impressed with Christie Brinkley skincare so far! These products sound great too

  2. Brooke @ Blushing Noir | 26th Oct 15

    You alone have me wanting to be all over this line! Particularly the eye serum!

  3. Lola Seicento | 26th Oct 15

    What an excellent review, Marcia! You are definitely making me want to try these three products! The creams look so nourishing and hydrating!

  4. Christa @Perilously Pale | 26th Oct 15

    I’ve gone through a whole had of the CB Recapture Day. That is a miracle for me to actually finish something. Love it!

  5. Tina @ My Highest Self | 26th Oct 15

    The eye cream sounds like something I would like to try. Thanks for a great review!

  6. Destany | 26th Oct 15

    I have really heard some great things about this line.

  7. Kristina | The Feminine Files | 26th Oct 15

    I want that eye serum! In the summer, since I have oily skin, I don’t use moisturizer at night. However, when winter hits I need to use one at night or my face is so dry in the morning.

  8. Aleya Bamdad | 26th Oct 15

    I’ll have to keep the moisturizers in mind for the winter but I want the eye cream now.

  9. Phyrra | 26th Oct 15

    I want that eye serum! The day cream and night cream need to be in airless pump packaging 🙁 It makes me cringe to see great products in jar packaging.

  10. Renu | 26th Oct 15

    I have been wanting to try out this range. The Infusion Eye Treatment sounds great – I like the idea of layering a serum and a gel or cream over the under-eye area.

  11. BeautyJudy | 26th Oct 15

    This line sounds fantastic based on your reviews – I really need to switch it up for winter, this sounds like a great way.

  12. Carleen | 26th Oct 15

    This looks like a nice line of products. The eye treatment sounds great!

  13. Bailey | 26th Oct 15

    I didn’t realize she (Christie Brinkley) had so many products. The night treatment sounds pretty great.

  14. Cindy (Prime Beauty) | 26th Oct 15

    I’ve wondered about this line, good to hear it’s nice quality.

  15. Lisa Heath | 27th Oct 15

    I keep hearing amazing things about her skin line! Gonna need to try it!

  16. Erika | 27th Oct 15

    I tried the Instant lift eye cream and it hurt my skin. I was so sad, as other people were having good results and loving it. It makes me a little wary of trying any other products in the line.

  17. Kath TheFabZilla | 27th Oct 15

    The eye serum sounds promising!

  18. Miranda Mendoza | 27th Oct 15

    If there’s anyone I trust with skincare, it’s Christie Brinkley!!

  19. Eugenia | 27th Oct 15

    I have heard so many things about this brand but have yet to try it!

  20. Jess Scull | 27th Oct 15

    I have heard awesome things about this line!

  21. Anastasia | 27th Oct 15

    I always change my skin care around winter time, since my skin tends to be on the drier side during that period.

  22. Ashley | 27th Oct 15

    My skin has gotten so weird as of late. Dry around my chin and oily on my nose! I’ve been on a search for a line that caters to my combo needs.

  23. Laura MyNewestAddiction | 27th Oct 15

    I want to try this stuff. I have seen so many people talk about it.

  24. Kristin Bassett | 27th Oct 15

    I exfoliate and moisturizer much more during the winter. The dry weather hurts my poor skin.

  25. Hannah C | 27th Oct 15

    Wow, those look like such nice products. I must give them a try sometime. I mainly want to try the serum infusion eye treatment.

  26. Jamie | 28th Oct 15

    These products look so rich!

  27. Mercedes | 28th Oct 15

    I have been using her cleanser and really like it. I want to try more from her line.

  28. Alina | 28th Oct 15

    Thanks for this review. I’ve only had the opportunity to try one of her items and it worked wonders.

  29. Kendra | 28th Oct 15

    The eyecream sounds awesome!
