In the search for the ultimate anti-aging formulation for my skin, I found that my skepticism grew with every failed product I tried, making it very hard to trust new entrants in the market enough to try them. Initially, I had not paid a lot of mind to Christie Brinkley’s Authentic Skincare Collection since the product I was using was modestly effective (I say modestly because not only did it take a lot of time and money, I also had to suffer through an onslaught of near-intolerable side effects).
I finally got around to trying the Christie Brinkley Recapture 360 anti-aging skincare formulation because of the free trial offer (you can understand my initial reluctance to spend money on another anti-aging product after all the mediocre results I had been getting).
The formulation is 100 % organic, which is a plus since most chemicals will not agree with my skin, and claimed to be very effective in the eradication of fine lines, wrinkles and other symptoms of aging on the skin.
What made me hopeful that this product would perhaps bring some significant positive change is the fact that it addresses the problem from a cellular level. Instead of just coating the lines temporarily, it fixes, strengthens and nourishes the skin cells to produce more youthful skin. Was I still skeptical? Slightly, yes.
However, I decided to give it a try anyway. Here is my experience with the Christie Brinkley Recapture 360 anti-aging item.
The Ingredients of the Christie Brinkley Recapture 360 Anti-Aging Product
As with any cosmetic product that comes in direct contact with your skin, it is prudent to know the ingredients up front. This includes all the active ingredients and the small, slightly shadowed constituents that are rarely mentioned in advertising (usually these are the ones that could potentially cause problems with how your skin handles the product).
· Systenol A – This is a powerful ingredient that tackles the formation of crow’s feet, brown spots, wrinkles, creases and other aging indicators at a cellular level.
· Elix-IR – This is one of Christie Brinkley’s proprietary ingredients. It not only functions as a very crucial, free radical-eradicating antioxidant, the ingredient also activates the skin’s natural defenses against UVA and UVB light. For those who don’t know, ultraviolet light is the primary reason why your skin develops brown and black spots for no reason at all.
· Aquaxyl – Aquaxyl mostly just helps the skin to retain its moisture, making it supple, firmer and more flexible. People with flaky skin will really benefit from the Christie Brinkley Recapture 360 for this reason.
· Mitostime – This ingredient enhances the production of collagen in your skin to make it look thicker, smoother and healthier.
· Resveratrol – Another powerful antioxidant within the formulation that is made from grape skin.
· Glycolic acid – Present in high concentrations, this ingredient also promotes the production of collagen in addition to nourishing the skin cells.
· Superoxide dismutase – This prevents the excessive breakdown of collagen, which is usually what causes the formation of wrinkles.
As with most skincare product, you need to first ensure that your face is clean. A mild cleanser with warm water on a soft rug will do the trick. I applied the serum on my face and some areas of the neck (problem areas with segments of loose skin) and as instructed, waited for around 2 minutes while gently massaging it into the skin.
I’ve always preferred daily application when it comes to organic serums since they are not likely to form any harmful chemical buildups. In addition to that, the Christie Brinkley Recapture 360 requires you to steer clear of alcohol and cigarettes so a little bit of sacrifice might be necessary. Other than that, maintain your daily routine but try to incorporate as much rest and hydration as you can fit in your day.
Cons and Side Effects
I had not been very worried about allergic reactions since the serum contained virtually no potentially threatening substance in its formulation.
Worth mentioning, however, is that the Christie Brinkley Recapture 360 is absolutely free of the toxin esculin, a horse chestnut derivative that has been known to induce dizziness, itching, headaches, and nausea.
The only thing that I feel could use an improvement is the size of the jar. For the price tag, it is a bit smaller than you would anticipate. However, this is only one of the many pointers that it is, in fact, the real deal, so it is hard to have any qualms with it knowing that it could solve all your problems.
My Results of using Recapture 360
There was a notable “pulling” sensation on my skin the first time I used the serum. It was not uncomfortable, just new. The serum itself has a gentle fragrance that is mild enough to be pleasant. It is also not greasy at all, meaning it gets absorbed into your skin quicker.
Barely a week had passed when I noticed that my crow’s feet were beginning to look shallower and a lot less permanent. My laugh lines were all but gone and the skin around my neck, cheeks and chin was feeling tighter than I had ever expected.
About two weeks into the regimen I was not the only one who was noticing the change anymore. My friends told me that my skin looked a lot more vibrant and had a much healthier and natural tincture (previously, I was known for my unusually pallid skin that often seemed powdery and flaky). The brown spots that had begun adding some contrasting detail on my pale skin had faded so much, they were virtually invisible. As for the feel of my skin, it was smoother, thicker and as supple as it was when I was a teenager.
The antioxidants are by far the most powerful ingredients in the formulation so the anti-aging effects of the serum kicked in immediately. What’s more, it was evident that this was no ordinary quick fix to a skin problem but a permanent anti-aging solution for my skin. After years of touch-and-go attempts to make my skin more youthful, the Christie Brinkley Recapture 360 proved to be the very solution I had been searching for.
Needless to say, I immediately made my purchase the second my trial offer was over.
The Christie Brinkley Recapture 360 is an anti-aging serum that works, but not only that, it works rapidly.
