Christie Brinkley stole the show when she starred in National Lampoon's Vacation in the 80s. And she's still hot after all these years, thanks in part to a to-die-for complexion. You'd never guess she's 61!
So when I heard she'd collaborated on a new anti-aging skincare line, I couldn't wait to give it a try.
This cutting-edge collection recognizes that most visible signs of aging skin come from the sun. The line is among the first in the U.S. to defend against damage from Infrared rays, which make up about 54% of the rays that get to us. Most other creams only guard against UVA and UVB rays, which represent about 7% of what reaches the earth.
In addition, these innovative products are infused with a proprietary Bio-Copper Complex. This blend of plant extracts, amino acids and copper is designed to support your skin's anti-aging defenses, providing smoother, firmer, healthier and younger-looking skin.
Christie's multi-tasking collection works on softening fine lines and wrinkles while providing advanced sun protection to guard against future damage. From day 1, these products have babied my skin leaving it feeling nice and soft ... not at all greasy. So whether I applied makeup or headed to bed afterwards, there was no waiting.
After using the line for several weeks, my face and neck are in better condition, there's no sign of dryness and I've had no unpleasant side effects. That's a HUGE plus because my skin tends to erupt in ugly red splotches when it's unhappy.
Complete Clarity Facial Cleansing Wash: Removes dirt and makeup without robbing skin of much-needed moisture. This light foaming gel is so mild you can use it morning and night every day, even when your skin's sensitive like mine. ($22 for 3 ounces)
Complete Clarity Daily Facial Exfoliating Polish: Gently removes dead cells, giving you a nice, healthy glow. Although it says daily in the name, using this creamy scrub a few times a week in place of the Facial Cleansing Wash has helped me put a stop to flakiness. ($24 for 3 ounces)
Recapture Day + IR Defense Anti-Aging Day Cream: Combines broad spectrum SPF30 protection and IR Defense to fight sun damage. Rich and soothing, this boomer-rific buy also helps smooth skin so fine lines are less noticeable. ($69 for 1 ounce)
Refocus Eye + IR Defense Serum Infusion Eye Treatment: Firms and brightens the skin under and around your eyes. I've enjoyed using this light-but-serious eye treatment morning and night to reduce the look of bags, puffiness, dark circles and wrinkles. ($69 for .5 ounces)
Uplift + IR Defense Firming Neck & Décolleté Treatment: Tightens and brightens your neck and décolleté area. Another favorite for a.m. and p.m. use, this thick cream supports your skin's natural collagen and elastin production for a firmer, smoother neckline. You gotta love that! ($69 for 1.7 ounces)
Recapture 360 Night Anti-Aging Night Treatment: Works while you sleep to help reverse the signs of aging and revitalize your skin. This deeply nourishing cream helps improve firmness and elasticity and reduces the appearance of lines and wrinkles. ($69 for 1 ounce)
Close Up Instant Wrinkle Smoother & Treatment: Tightens skin on contact. Although it's not Botox, this quick fix can give you a little lift before date night, book club or taking a selfie. It helps smooth wrinkles while reducing under-eye puffiness, providing visible results in less than two minutes. ($69 for .33 ounces)
