Christie Brinkley Close Up Instant Wrinkle Reducer and Treatment

You’ve probably seen bloggers buzzing about Christie Brinkley skin care; after all, the muse and creative mind behind the brand – Christie herself – does not look a day over 40 at her 61, so she must be doing something right! I received one of her famous treatments to try – Christie Brinkley Close Up Instant Wrinkle Reducer and Treatment, which in a nutshell is a targeted spot treatment for areas of concern.

Here is the official product description from Christie Brinkley website:
Get camera ready in a flash! Just a touch to eye, frown and smile lines, and the formula helps eliminate the appearance of wrinkles, so you look years younger in minutes and it will last for hours!
Ingredients: Water/ Aqua/ Eau, Adipic Acid/Neopentyl Glycol Crosspolymer, Dimethicone, Hydroxypropyl Methylcellulose, Copper Lysinate/Prolinate, Methylglucoside Phosphate, Pullulan, Porphyridium Cruentum Extract, Glycerin, VP/VA Copolymer, Acrylates/C10-30 Alkyl Acrylate Crosspolymer, Amodimethicone, Caprylyl Glycol, Ethylhexylglycerin, Trisodium Ethylenediamine Disuccinate, Sodium Hydroxide, Phenoxyethanol, Chlorphenesin.
I am familiar with these types of treatments, and currently already use another similar product that I’m happy with, but trying something new and potentially awesome is always fun. Never used one of these before? It’s actually quite easy:
  1. Cleanse, tone, and moisturize the skin as usual.
  2. Gently dab Christie Brinkley Close Up Instant Wrinkle Reducer and Treatment onto areas of concern, like visible fine lines, wrinkles.
  3. Wait a few minutes before applying makeup.
  4. Apply makeup carefully when going over the treated areas. Don’t smudge – dab, stiffle, or pat in instead to make sure the formula stays in place.

First of all, I have to comment on the outer packaging. Even though I normally just toss those, a beautifully designed wrap adds to the overall experience. Christie Brinkley packaging boxes look beautiful on the outside and on the inside, and each one is inscribed with a motivational message. Mine said “A smile is like an instant facelift, and an instant mood lift”, which is totally true! I don’t think I ever notice imperfections on a person who is smiling :)

The treatment comes in a pink pearly squeeze tube with a narrow nozzle. Since the formula is concentrated, it was very clever of CB to make the opening so tiny, making it hard to over apply on accident.

Straight out of the tube, Close Up Instant Wrinkle Reducer and Treatment looks like an off-white, slightly yellowish cream-gel, that has no noticeable scent. If anything, it smells maybe a little bitter from the ingredients inside, but I didn’t feel like there was any chemical fragrance added. The formula spreads well, and absorbs immediately, while the effect takes a couple minutes to fully develop.

So, is it any good? Well, it does in fact make the skin feel a lot firmer instantly, and plumps out fine lines for a more even surface, however, as nice as it is for shallow laugh lines and small crow’s feet, I don’t think this particular product is potent enough to make a huge difference for deep lines. I wouldn’t think of it as a big issue, if only the brand’s target demographic was a different age group.

Overall I think this is a pretty nice product and certainly makes the skin look more plump and youthful, but it’s not a miracle treatment by any means. On me the effect lasts about 6 hours [same as another similar product I currently use], which is long enough for a special event or a date night.

WHERE TO BUY: $79.95 USD for 0.33oz. Available at Christie Brinkley.

Summer and Vacation Ready With These Essentials


There are three things that I love and always associate with summer and sunny weather vacations: the color gold, glossy lips, and sun-kissed skin.

I wear gold jewelry year-round, but I especially love how it looks in the summer sun and paired with lighter colored clothing. Lately, I've been obsessing over hand chains like this one from Kendra Scott and shiny gold nail color (would also be great for the holidays!). For glossy lips, my fave of the moment is the Yves Saint Laurent Volupté Tint-in-Oil. Super hydrating and glossy, but let's be real, I'd buy it anyway for its beautiful packaging!

As far as sun-kissed, getting a healthy glow while staying protected from damaging UV rays had always been more tricky for me. Recently, I received a sample of Tone & Tan by Karin Herzog (c/o) and Miracle Skin Transformer BODY SPF 20 (c/o). The Tone & Tan is a self-tanner and toning cream, and the MST BODY is a tinted beauty balm cream with SPF. I love using the 2 together for a gradual tan and sunny glow while having sun protection from the SPF. The Tone & Tan is easy to apply, looks natural and didn't streak even when I was in a rush and quickly(sloppily) smoothed it on. The MST is hydrating and dewy, and is great even without a tan when you want to give your skin an immediate, radiant glow with its tinted formula. Love it.

Christie Brinkley Close Up Wrinkle Reducer: 

As a bit of a skincare junkie, I am always interested in trying out new products! Now that I am in my 40's, I am especially interested in anti-aging formulas. When I heard about Christie Brinkley's Authentic Skincare line and this Close Up Instant Wrinkle Reducer & Treatment, I jumped at the chance to try it out!

My Aging Concerns:

As I enter my 40s, my main anti-aging concerns are prevention and softening the look of my fine lines. Luckily, my fine lines are not that apparent yet. However, I do have some around my eye area. Plus, my eye area in general is my "trouble spot". I struggle with dark circles from hereditary, general lack of sleep (I am a Mom of a 1 year old and 3 year old), and allergies. So, I am interested in any product that refreshes, smooths, or soothes the eye area.
