Christie Brinkley Authentic Skincare is an anti-aging miracle! I was sent the following products to review:
COMPLETE CLARITY Facial Cleansing Wash ($32.95 USD) — Complete Clarity Facial Cleaning Wash is a luxurious foaming gel cleanser that is gentle on skin but gives strong cleansing action. This cleanser is designed to leave your skin feeling clean but not dry by balancing skin moisture. Removes residual make-up.
CLOSE UP Instant Wrinkle Reducer & Treatment ($79.95 USD) — Get camera ready in a flash! An instant treatment that tightens the look of skin while firming and smoothing the appearance of crow’s feet, fine lines, and wrinkles. Use around eyes, mouth and on forehead to erase years from your appearance.
REFOCUS Under Eye Treatment($79.95 USD) –A potent anti-aging serum infused with the Bio Copper Complex. Reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles in the delicate eye area while it firms, smoothes texture and tones the skin. Improves skin elasticity.
What I think: The foaming cleanser is fun to use and leaves skin clean and soft. The Instant Wrinkle Reducer is great to use before going out or special occasions because it instantly tightens skin and makes lines go away (temporarily). The eye treatment works over time to firm and smooth the eye area.

The perfect primer for makeup, this sunscreen filters UV rays and environmental stressors that contribute to hyperpigmentation, photoaging and skin-harm.

This empowered formula not only contains the patented blend of brightening ingredients with sustained delivery system, but also provides needed nutrition and hydration. Balancing and regulating skin’s performance all day, it wards off the effects of drying environmental stressors, for a vital, radiant glow.
What I think: This is another luxe foaming cleanser that easily removes makeup and dirt gently. The sunscreen needs to be shaken before use. It applies like a liquid, but dries down and is not greasy at all. The brightening cream gives an instant glow, but also brightens the skin over time.
