Hit or miss? Christie Brinkley Authentic Skincare Recapture 360 + IR Defense

RECAPTURE 360 + IR Defense Anti-Aging Day Cream

RECAPTURE 360 + IR Defense Anti-Aging Day Cream

Over the years I’ve become rather jaded when it comes to celebrity lines.  I’ve learned that just because a beautiful person espouses something it doesn’t mean it will work wonders on me, instantly making me dop dead gorgeous.  I honestly had no interest in trying the Christie Brinkley line until Marcia started raving about it.  She finally convinced me to try one of the products sent to the BIZ to test, and handed me the Recapture 360 + IR Defense Cream with a Cheshire-cat smile and a soft “You’ll see.”

I see.  I definitely see now!

RECAPTURE 360 + IR Defense Anti-Aging Day Cream

RECAPTURE 360 + IR Defense Anti-Aging Day Cream

Recapture 360 + IR Defense Cream ($69) is a truly beautiful moisturizing cream for the morning.  It’s thick, creamy, and silky.  It leaves my skin feeling incredibly soft and smooth.  It feels amazing going on and the effect really lasts all day.  I find that it makes my foundation go on even better, looking smooth and fresh.  It has Bio-Copper Complex+ protection to protect from UVA/UVB & IR rays and is a “true solution for visible wrinkle reduction & prevention.”   Just look at all the benefits:

  • Reduces the appearance of wrinkles.
  • Reduces the look of multiple signs of aging.
  • Key signs of aging are reduced so that skin looks smoother, firmer, and reduces the appearance of dark spots.
  • 3 effective technologies [Revive + Improve+ Protect] to help correct multiple signs of aging: Wrinkles-Firmness-Dark Spots.
  • It’s the ideal all-in-one solution for smoother, firmer, more even skin.
  • A global anti-age solution acting on wrinkles, loss of firmness and dark spots.
  • Helps rejuvenate skin and fight against wrinkles, lack of firmness and skin tone unevenness.
  • One single anti-aging formula to help correct [or address] multiple signs of aging: wrinkles, firmness, and dark spots.
  • Recapture your youthful appearance.
  • Decreases the crepe paper aspect of the skin for smoother, younger looking skin.
  • Enhances your skin’s natural ability to address multiple signs of skin aging caused by damage from UVA/UVB exposure, infrared radiation, oxidation and environmental stress.
  • Improves the look of sagging skin.
RECAPTURE 360 + IR Defense Anti-Aging Day Cream

RECAPTURE 360 + IR Defense Anti-Aging Day Cream

I find the moisturizer truly helps promote collagen production and evens out my skin tone.  It’s also a great wrinkle fighter and anti-aging treatment.  There is something about it that is crazy soft and cushiony, and it makes me feel pampered.  Kind of hard to explain, but some products just make me feel like I am really taking good care of myself, and this is one of those products.

As usual, Marcia was right.  I love this beautiful moisturizer.  Now, however, she has created a problem for herself because I want to review all the other Christie Brinkley Authentic Skincare products…so Marcia, prepare for some major arm wrestling!!  – Lisa

Get great skin while giving back with Christie Brinkley Authentic Skincare

Christie Brinkley Smile

Christie Brinkley Authentic Skincare has become a favorite brand of mine. I’ve told you before that I reluctantly decided to try the line when it was offered to me but within a short time became enamored with it. The products I’ve used are wonderful and I have no hesitation recommending them to you.

Starting December 1st, Christie Brinkley Authentic Skincare will be offering an amazing gift set for the holidays. Best of all, for each set sold, $50 will be donated towards Smile Train – an organization close to Christie’s heart.

Smile Train is an international children’s charity with a sustainable approach to a single, solvable problem: cleft lip and palate. Smile Train provides training and funding to empower local doctors in 85+ developing countries to provide 100%-free cleft repair surgery in their own communities.

Look at what $78.90 will get you from Christie Brinkley’s website:

Christie Brinkley COMPLETE CLARITY Facial Cleansing Wash

Christie Brinkley COMPLETE CLARITY Facial Cleansing Wash

Christie Brinkley COMPLETE CLARITY Facial Cleansing Wash ($32.95) is gentle enough for all skin types. It’s a foaming facial wash that doesn’t strip your skin.

Christie Brinkley Complete Clarity Daily Facial Exfoliating Polish

Christie Brinkley Complete Clarity Daily Facial Exfoliating Polish

Christie Brinkley Complete Clarity Daily Facial Exfoliating Polish ($34.95) can be used daily but I prefer to use this several times a week instead. This is a creamy scrub that is gentle on skin yet gives 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.

Christie Brinkley Recapture Day + IR Defense Anti-Aging Treatment

Christie Brinkley Recapture Day + IR Defense Anti-Aging Treatment

Christie Brinkley Recapture Day + IR Defense Anti-Aging Treatment ($79.95) is the product that sold me on the CB skincare. This gentle and very moisturizing day cream contains Broad Spectrum SPF 30 and feels so luxurious on my skin. I enjoy putting this on because of the way my skin feels and looks when using it.

“Infused with award winning anti-aging ingredients and beyond UV sun protection,  this clinically proven multi-level, anti-aging treatment helps correct the most visible signs of aging by supporting the skin’s natural anti-aging defenses and the natural production of collagen.

Recapture Day + IR Defense Anti-Aging Treatment has received the seal of recommendation from ‘The Skin Cancer Foundation’.”

For the cost of the Recapture Day alone you’ll be getting both cleansers which is an amazing deal. Just as important is that you are not only getting great skin but you are giving back to a cause that is so important to Christie Brinkley and to people around the world with cleft lip and palette. Do yourself and others a favor and consider this wonderful skincare. I know I’m taking advantage of it because of the $57 savings and because I want another Recapture Day + IR Defense Anti-Aging Treatment in my life. — Marcia

Makeup Wars – items that surprised me

This edition of Makeup Wars is all about items that surprised us. These could be winners, these could be losers, but they were all in the race since we’ve used them for our blogs and personal life. I’ve found quite a few products that I didn’t necessarily have high expectations of that have blown me away but unfortunately the opposite has been true too. I’m focusing on the positive because these have all broken through the finish line as winners.

Makeup Wars items that surprised me - Christie Brinkley skincare, Benefit Roller Lash mascara and Rimmel Lasting Finish Foundation

Makeup Wars items that surprised me – Christie Brinkley skincare, Benefit Roller Lash mascara and Rimmel Lasting Finish Foundation

CHRISTIE BRINKLEY AUTHENTIC SKINCARE is a skincare line that I turned down the first time it was offered to me. My perception was that as beautiful as Christie Brinkley is, that she’d probably slapped her name down on a line that offered to make her some money. I was totally wrong and now I’ve had the opportunity to try 4 of her products. These are all well thought out items that have performed beautifully for me. I want an anti-aging line considering I’m aging every day and not going backwards. I’ve found her products to be excellent especially the Recapture Day + IR Defense Anti-Aging Day Cream with Broad Spectrum SPF 30 Sunscreen (that’s a mouthful) and Recapture 360 Night Anti-aging Night Treatment. These are luxurious without being outrageously priced. They are rich and provide the anti-aging benefits I look for.

RIMMEL LONDON LASTING FINISH 25 HR FOUNDATION was a recommendation by a friend who loves IT Cosmetics CC+ Cream as much as I do. I bought it because of her raves but I was sure it wouldn’t work for me and I’d return it. SURPRISE! I really like the foundation. I haven’t trusted drugstore foundation for a dozen years. I never found a color match, I rarely found one that I could tolerate the scent of and I didn’t find one that looked natural on my skin. Rimmel’s Lasting Finish has done all 3 of these for me in the right way. My color match is 091 Light Ivory, the fragrance disappears on my skin and I love the finish it gives me. It lasts all day with maybe a little more concealer if I’m going out. This is a great $7 surprise.

My last surprise is BENEFIT ROLLER LASH MASCARA. I haven’t liked many Benefit products unfortunately. I have a few that I’ve enjoyed like Fake Up Concealer and some I’ve hated like They’re Real, Push Up Liner so I was surprised that I even bought Roller Lash Mascara. I’m even more surprised how much I like this mascara. As with all mascaras the reviews were mixed but definitely more in favor of the mascara than not. I first bought Maybelline Lash Sensational because I had heard they gave a similar look and as much as I’m a fan of Lash Sensational, it’s a bear to remove. One day Roller Lash slipped into my shopping cart and arrived at my house. I put off wearing it thinking it was just another mascara. It’s not! It’s a SURPRISE! I really love the look of the mascara and how it wears. What do I get from this?

-Longer, defined lashes that have a great amount of volume

-Curl that lasts from morning through night

-Compliments galore on how great my lashes look (even when cringing in the chair at the oral surgeon)

-A mascara without flaking, clumping, or smudging

-A mascara that easily removes

Christie Brinkley Recapture Day + IR Defense with SPF 30 = radiant smooth skin

christie brinkley website

The first time I was offered Christie Brinkley Authentic Skincare to test I turned it down. I thought it would be just another celebrity branded product that wasn’t unique. I finally caved when I was offered CLOSE UP to test since that felt unusual and something that was out of the norm. Well now I’m hooked and everything that Christie Brinkley Authentic Skincare wants me to test will get a big yes.

The latest to make my dream of having skin like Christie is RECAPTURE DAY + IR DEFENSE ANTI-AGING DAY TREATMENT WITH BROAD SPECTRUM SPF 30.

Christie Brinkley Recapture Day + IR Defense w/ SPF30

I’ll tell you right away that I love this daytime moisturizer. It’s been hard to tear myself away from it to test other brands because I think this is the best I’ve used in a long time. Recapture Day + IR Defense feels silky on my skin, absorbs quickly and protects me from everything. Plus I swear there’s a radiance that wasn’t there prior to using this.

This day cream is made to rejuvenate skin, fight wrinkles, improve firmness and elasticity. Does it do all that? In my experience it absolutely does. I’m using different brands’ serums and essences but even before I started those I saw a big difference in my skin. It helps reduce dark spots although I can’t say they are gone (I never knew about sunscreen when I was young so I have damage from years of outdoor exposure).

What is IR Defense? IR is a type of sun ray. We already know we need to protect against UVA and UVB rays but now there’s the one in the middle called IR. Rather than worry though using this day cream helps you fight the IR Rays with an ingredient called Elix IR, a knotgrass extract formulated with flavonoids to help defend against this type of ray. (See we learned something new today!)

Recapture Day + IR Defense contains a Bio Copper Complex that has been studied by the brands scientists, including the famous Dr. Doris Day, to specifically target visible signs of aging. This complex has the following:

• Neo-Dermyl is a cutting edge copper based ingredient that helps firm and reduce the look of fine lines and wrinkles as it rejuvenates the skin.

• Sytenol A is unique and powerful retinol-like anti-oxidant that visibly evens and brightens skin tone.

• K 3 Vita C is a stable form of vitamin C that helps support natural collagen production and even skin tone.christie brinkley moisturizer box

I’m crazy about this day cream and I’m crazy about Christie Brinkley’s lovely attitude. You can find Recapture Day + IR Defense with and without sunscreen on her website and you can also go to HSN.com for some savings. There’s a great set there for only $99 with 3 fl. oz. Complete Clarity Daily Facial Exfoliating Polish, 1 fl. oz. Recapture Day + IR Defense Cream. and 1 fl. oz. Recapture 360 Night Beauty Treatment that I highly recommend. I’ve used all 3 of these items and I’m getting closer to my Christie Brinkley dream. — Marcia

Christie Brinkley Complete Clarity for refreshed skin

In my new quest to look like Christie Brinkley I think it’s best that I use her skincare products. I’m not ever going to be tall. I’m not ever going to make a 6 – 7 figure income. But I do have skin and I want my skin to look its best. I’ve used Christie Brinkley Close Up Instant Wrinkle Reducer and Treatment and like how that works on my fine lines so when I was offered another product from the line I was happy to continue on the quest.

Christie Brinkley Complete Clarity

Christie Brinkley Complete Clarity

COMPLETE CLARITY is a daily facial exfoliating polish. It’s double duty since it cleanses and exfoliates with one product. You can precleanse if you are wearing heavy makeup but in general I’ve used it when I’ve got on either light facial makeup or a bare face.

Christie Brinkley Complete Clarity

Christie Brinkley Complete Clarity

It’s easy to use since you apply a small amount to your damp face and massage in a circular motion. I always have a washcloth to remove this from my face when I’m done. This contains Lactic Acid Beads for the polishing; these won’t ruin our waterways since they dissolve. It also contains Aloe Powder to soothe your skin, Glycerin to moisturize and Salicylic Acid to help as an anti-inflammatory.

There’s basically no fragrance in this which makes me very happy. Complete Clarity is creamy and has a very fine scrubby texture to it. I make sure my face is quite damp when I start and add more water to keep it gentle. Complete Clarity is really helping the area around my nose from getting clogged with product. I have to admit that sometimes I don’t get it all off with my washcloth and have to use a toner or Bioderma Micellar Water to remove anything that’s sticking around. But when I’m done my face is thoroughly cleansed and ready for skincare.
