There are people that you meet that radiate warmth, intelligence, and gumption, and Christie Brinkley just happens to be one of those special people. I remember being drawn to her beauty and charm as a kid of the 1980s, and as luck would have it, got to meet her at the press preview session, introducing her new line, Christie Brinkley Authentic Skincare. To sum things up, she was as excited and enthusiastic about the products as I was about meeting her!
Several years and tons of research and testing have gone into the line, which is poised to become a mega-success, canvassing the areas that women want and need to clean, exfoliate, moisturizer, and protect the most.The well-edited lineup of seven products range in price from $21-$69, and feature state-of-the-art technology in multi-tasking products that do everything from exfoliate to super duper moisturize AND protect your skin from the sun.
The sun protection is one of the most unique factors from the line, as it not only gives broad spectrum, UVA and UVB coverage, but also helps skin fight off infrared sun damage (IR), which Christie shared the fact that UVA and UVB are only 7% of the sun damage effecting us, while IR accounts for 54% of the rays seeping down to earth. Christie also worked with a team of scientists to develop the Bio-Copper Complex, a proprietary anti-aging treatment that combines the aforementioned copper along with amino acids and plant extracts to support the skin to combat the signs of aging and create smoother, firmer skin.
The products include:
- Recapture Day + IR Defense Anti-Aging Day Cream with SPF 30
- Recapture 360 Night Anti-Aging Night Treatment
- Complete Clarity Daily Facial Exfoliating Polish
- Refocus Eye + IR Defense Serum Infusion Eye Treatment
- UPLIFT Firming Neck & Decollete Treatment
