I don’t have many fine lines and wrinkles yet. However, I am all about using anti-aging products early. Prevention is so important. If you can prevent your skin from pre-mature aging, then you will reap the rewards later in life. The earlier you start, the better. I do have a few fine lines around my eyes. When I saw there was a product that instantly reduced the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, I was all over it. My mom also has some fine lines and wrinkles, so I employed her as my test subject. She was so excited to test the product and give you her honest opinions too. Therefore, this review will be both of ours. Let’s get to the review of Christie Brinkley’s Authentic Skincare Close Up Instant Wrinkle Reducer & Treatment (Whew…long name I know)!

My Thoughts:

I tried the Close Up Treatment a couple times and I thought it was a nice product. I tried this product for a couple of days so I could review the product’s formulation. I didn’t notice any huge difference because I don’t have many fine lines. I used the product around my eyes (you can use it anywhere on your face) because that is the area I have a few fine lines. The product felt very nice on the skin. It is a thicker consistency, but sinks into the skin rather quickly. I did notice a bit of plumping, but nothing a photo would capture.

I really enjoyed how smooth and hydrated my under-eye area felt. It was not sticky and very easy to work with. A little bit goes a long way. The product does not have much of a smell which is really nice in skincare. This is a well-made eye treatment. However, I think the $80 price tag is a bit too high for this product. If it was $40, then I would be all over it. I didn’t notice any miracles in my skin, so $80 is too high for the small tube. If this product was on sale at 50% off, I would buy it! I really enjoyed testing it and loved how hydrated it left my under-eye area.




NoDue to price is just a bit too high

My Mom’s Thoughts:

I had my mom test this product because she is a better candidate for this product. She is over 50 and has fine lines beginning to form around her face. We chose to test the under-eye area because this is where the fine lines and wrinkles are the most predominate. I really appreciate her helping me test this product. Here are her thoughts.

I think the Close Up Treatment is a pretty great product. To me, it made my fine lines less noticeable. The product was cooling and soothing under my eyes. It was not greasy or gritty. The application was self-explanatory and didn’t take a lot of work.

I only tested this product for a week and that is not enough time to get the full results. However, I did notice some instant results and diminished fine lines. The only negative I have is the price is too expensive. Although versus plastic surgery and Botox, it is much cheaper. Overall, I really enjoyed this product and will continue to use it.

I really enjoyed trying the Christie Brinkley Close Up Instant Wrinkle Reducer & Treatment. This product really hydrates the under-eyes and does help to instantly diminish the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. I would definitely recommend purchasing this product if you have fine lines. I would wait until there is a sale on this product. The only negative I have is the price is a bit too high for the small amount of product. A little goes a long way, but it is still a fairly small tube. The tube will only last about a month. I also loved having my mom try the product and hearing her thoughts. I hope you enjoyed it too.
