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
