I’m ready for my CLOSE UP with Christie Brinkley Skincare

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

    Ha ha! Oh come on, go blonde for a few months. I haven’t tried anything from her skincare line but did recently hear about it. It does seem a bit too expensive for me but I’m sure women will eat it up to try to get her amazing skin. Thank-you for the honest review. 🙂

  2. Heather | 19th Jun 15

    I loved her daily moisturizer, and plan on buying some of her other products. I might just start with this one, I love KOHL’s and always have Kohls Cash to burn hehe

  3. Anastasia | 19th Jun 15

    I keep hearing wonderful things about Christie’s cosmetic line!

  4. BeautyJudy | 19th Jun 15

    I didn’t know she was coming out with her own line. I love that you can get a better deal at Kohl’s on this. It’s not for me, but it sounds like a great product.

  5. Kim | 19th Jun 15

    This is actually the 1st time I’ve heard of her line. I agree, she looks great for her age. $69-79 is pricey, but if it is something that works, why not?

  6. [email protected] | 19th Jun 15

    She’s still stunning!

  7. Phyrra | 19th Jun 15

    What a pricey line!

  8. Destany | 19th Jun 15

    Ouch at the price, but if it works, and you like it, I say it’s always money well spent!

  9. Stephanie Telford | 19th Jun 15

    So glad she’s started her own brand!

  10. Nidia - Lit From Within | 19th Jun 15

    She certainly is a perfect spokesmodel for her line. Who wouldn’t want to look that great at 60? I’d love to look that great now, in my 40s… lol!

  11. Lola Seicento | 19th Jun 15

    Wow, that’s a pretty hefty price tag, but I am definitely curious about this product! Thank you for the in-depth review!

  12. Kristina | The Feminine Files | 19th Jun 15

    She is so friggin gorgeous! I could definitely use this around my eyes, but it is a bit expensive

  13. Shipra | 19th Jun 15

    Cannot believe she is 60! She’s always been gorgeous! <3

  14. Chelsea | cute and clever | 19th Jun 15

    I think that I wouldn’t care for the tingling sensation and I doubt the copper peptides are doing much, it’s not a proven anti-aging ingredient yet even if it is a prescription wound care product in pure form. I’m not spending money on those kinds of products until further information is available

  15. Carleen | 19th Jun 15

    Christie Brinkley always looks amazing. Love her!

  16. Cindy Ingalls | 19th Jun 15

    I haven’t tried any of her products, but if they make her look this amazing, why not.

  17. Julie | 19th Jun 15

    Seriously, isn’t it so unfair how blessed this woman is?! lol She’s truly stunning, I can only hope to have her skin when I’m 60! This little treatment sounds like a pretty good start though! 😉

  18. Lisa Heath | 20th Jun 15

    She looks FABULOUS for her age!

  19. Alexandra Elisabet | 20th Jun 15

    It does seem a bit too expensive for me but I’m sure women will eat it up to try to get her amazing skin.

    Lastly, the regular Fitbit Charge is just not able to connecting to a coronary heart charge strap (of any kind).

  21. Erika | 20th Jun 15

    A tad spendy but if it works and you like it, it’s worth it! Work done or no, the lady has lovely skin and looks good. If she’s happy, that is all that should matter. 😀

    I double dog dare ya to go blonde. 😉

  22. Brooke @ Blushing Noir | 20th Jun 15

    She looks amazing. I’ll buy whatever she tells me to.

  23. Kat Dinges | 20th Jun 15

    I’m not sure if I can visibly see a difference yet for me but I can feel a little bit of a difference. Can’t wait until I finish testing this!

  24. Honeygirlk | 20th Jun 15

    This is something I think I definitely want to try – I could use a little tightening here and there.

  25. Susan | 20th Jun 15

    Thanks for sharing your thoughts on barbour sverige. Regards

  26. Mai | 20th Jun 15

    I could definitely see myself getting something like this for my mom, especially for her special events!

  27. Bailey | 21st Jun 15

    I don’t think I have a need for this just yet, but the concept is interesting.

  28. NORAH | 22nd Jun 15

    The cream sounds like it is good but for something like this, I am usually a of a skeptic although I must admit I am curious to try!

  29. Carmela | 23rd Jun 15

    I think that everything posted made a ton of sense. However, what
    about this? suppose you were to write a killer headline?
    I am not saying your information is not good., however suppose you added something that grabbed
    a person’s attention? I mean I?m ready for my CLOSE UP with Christie Brinkley Skincare is kinda plain. You ought to glance at Yahoo’s home page and note
    how they create post titles to grab viewers interested. You might
    try adding a video or a picture or two to grab people excited about what you’ve got to say.
    Just my opinion, it might make your posts a little bit more interesting.
