Christie Brinkley Skincare

Christie Brinkley Skincare: Company Overview

Christie Brinkley Skincare is a brand launched by the model, and Cover girl, Christie Brinkley. This brand offers a number of products that focus on anti aging skin care, reduction of wrinkles, and sunscreen protection to prevent dark spots on face. In its current line of products, Christie Brinkley Skincare offers items such as face moisturizers, creams for the neck and the décolleté, night moisturizers, under eye bag treatments, and facial cleansers, among others. Although the company’s website currently offers skin care advice, this is not as helpful as working with a skin care professional who understands the unique needs of your health situation. Therefore, if you are interested in this company’s products, it’s highly recommended that you work hand in hand with a dermatologist, especially if you are looking to build a complete skin care kit. Further, it may be helpful to read unbiased Christie Brinkley Skincare reviews, to see how other individuals fared with the manufacturer’s products.

Where to Buy Christie Brinkley Skincare

Anyone interested in where to buy Christie Brinkley Skincare products can order them directly from the website, or from a number of third party retailers, such as Amazon.com or eBay. However, anyone looking to purchase these products directly from the company is encouraged to find third party Christie Brinkley Skincare reviews online, as no reviews are available on the company website.

In addition, if you purchase the manufacturer’s products from retailers like Amazon, it is worthwhile to read Christie Brinkley Skincare reviews for the particular vendor, to ensure that the independent reseller is indeed reputable and won’t send you counterfeit or expired products.

And our #1 recommendation in 2017 is Advanced Dermatology. Excellent. 

Followed by Arrosa Cosmetics. Our number #2 recommendation. Natural, organic products.  

Christie Brinkley Skincare Ingredients

Christie Brinkley Skincare products contain a wide range of ingredients; depending on the specific item you are considering. For example, the RECAPTURE Day + IR Defense Anti-Aging Treatment contains ingredients like Neodermyl, to increase the skin’s elasticity; Sytenol, to reduce irritation; and Mitostime, an algae extract intended to increase the skin’s production of collagen.

Another Christie Brinkley Skincare product is the UPLIFT Firming Neck & Decollete Treatment, which is formulated for the thicker skin on the neck and chest. This cream contains Niacinamide, a vitamin B derivative to moisturize the skin and Sytenol, an antioxidant.

Then there is also the Christie Brinkley Skincare REFOCUS Eye, a serum intended to reduce under eye puffiness and to decrease the appearance of under eye wrinkles. This item contains ingredients like the ViaPure Poria, an anti-inflammatory; Horsechestnut Seed Extract, to boost blood circulation in the treated area; and Magnolia Super Extract, an antioxidant.

Cost of Christie Brinkley Skincare Products

The cost of Christie Brinkley Skincare items is relatively affordable for most skin care budgets, and ranges between $30 and $90 per jar. However, the jars and tubes in this brand are quite small; with some being only one third of an ounce in volume. Therefore, it’s a good idea to read Christie Brinkley Skincare reviews from other consumers to first assess whether these products may be right for you, before spending money on an item that may be ineffective.

Christie Brinkley Skincare Returns and Exchanges

To boost sales of its products Christie Brinkley Skincare offers a full 30 day return policy for consumer to receive a complete refund. The company claims that it will provide a full refund even if the jars or tubes are returned completely empty. However, consumers should be aware that the postage and other costs of returning any items to the manufacturer are the responsibility of the consumer, and will not be reimbursed by the company. This makes it all the more important to consult with a skin care expert before purchasing Christie Brinkley Skincare products.

    Ordered the trial, rec’d yesterday..Called at 8:14 tonight and cancelled after rep told me that monthly supply only the small jar sent, NOT the product shown with pump. Wanted me to try for FREE 10 more days-I said, “No, I might forget, just cancel”..I then asked if I needed to return the product and was told “No, you canc. within time period, keep”..
    Got an email a moment later for a $38.71 ORDER! Called and was told that I accepted and just like others above was told that I agreed to charge-I told him, “NO, I disagree and this is deceptive and I want charge removed..NO mention of a fee to keep after I asked about returning”! Then, he said that calls are recorded and I instructed him that he needed to ck.! He then offered to refund 50%..AGAIN, I said “NO and I WILL dispute charge on my cd. and file a complaint”. Email with $38.71 credit a minute later..
    Definitely a SCAM offer!!!

    Wow! Thank you all for the reviews. I feel ya…15th day since my Christie Scam-me order. I only ordered 1 free trial lotion. But received 2 and paid $10 for shipping. Woke up this morning with two $94 charges. Are you kidding me!!! Called customer service, they gave me the same run around. “Thats what you signed up for”. Asked to speak to supervisor first she was busy then he said she wasn’t in yet. His solution to my dilemma – would send me a voucher to purchase any items I chose. What? He kept repeating Q card. But I wasn’t giving up I kept repeating my speach. ” I want this charge on my credit card reversed”. After 40 minutes, yes he wore me down. I was told to call back and talk to the supervisor Anna, when she came in. But I thought to myself this is my day off i do not want to spend it tracking down another person who (from all these reviews) was going to give me the run around. So I called my credit card company. They are going to help me out. Thank you Capital One!!! And thank you all for listening to me vent☺
    DON’T FALL FOR FREE TRIALS…THEY ARE NOT FREE!!! 😑SCAM😔

    I just got off the phone with the most unprofessional customer service rep by the name of Axel! I had tried my so called “free samples” of Vderma and Derm Elite and had an allergic reaction. The first time I called them, I wanted to cancel make sure that no new products were going to be sent out to me, but little did I know that they were charging me $92.99 for those free trial products! The rep kept repeating to me that I had not completed my trial program, so I needed to call them back in about 2 weeks to cancel. So, she wanted me to continue using the products, even though I had told her I had an allergic reaction. I told her NO and that I wanted them to refund my money. After going around in circles with her, she stated I would only receive 35 % of the $92.99. After that, I have decided to tell all my friends about this scam and vowed never to be suckered ever again with any “free trial” gimmick!
    But, it doesn’t end here. Once again, they have debited an additional amount of $92.49 (less cents). This is why I was on the phone with Axel, the unprofessional customer service rep! I tried to explain the nature of my call, but he definitely did not want to listen to a word I had to say. He started raising his voice to me and wouldn’t let me get a word in and then he hung up on me!

    I initially ordered the free trial for the wrinkle cream, I then also purchased the 360 day cream with sunscreen. You do have to be super careful on the website not to accidentally purchase products you don’t want but I went on the site knowing this. My products arrived to NZ in a couple of weeks and aside from the annoying telemarketing lady calling me once arrived to try and sell other products everything regarding the purchase was great.
    I have been using for about one month and my skin has never been clearer, scars from acne are fading and my skin looks pretty good..I read reviews and was a little skeptical but thought I’d give it a go as if it works is cheap and have been pleasantly surprised.
    I have only the odd break out which for me is amazing. I don’t normally write reviews but I genuinely love the product. I normally wouldn’t leave the house without makeup and have done this twice in the past week because my skin looks so great.

  5. Nancy

    Sounds like I should of read these complaints before I got taken as well, I called their phone # & a nice voice came on telling me that someone would be with me & of course the phone call ended with no one answering. I read all information carefully before I made my $1.00 purchase only to be charged $4.95 & $5.99 plus $92.49 & $92.99. My disability cannot take this kind of damage. Terrible!
    When is someone going to stop this company for V derma & Derm Elite.

  6. Very upset

    Christie Brinkley skincare what a joke. I fell for the scam, I was initially sceptical but ordered my free trial anyway, I told myself surely Christy Brinkly wouldn’t rip people off or associate her name with people who would. Was I wrong. They took $200.00 from my account and sent an email saying day and night creams will be sent. That was a month ago. I have not received anything. I have sent several emails without response and phoned the 24/7 customer line everyday for the last month which only has a recorded message stating “we are having technical issues try again later”. I’m ready to phone a current affair or department of fair trading. Christy Brinkley you are a thief and your skincare is rubbish!

    I brought the 3 face creams and they arrived in very small jars and opted to try the trial night cream as part of that first order. The trial was for 3 weeks, within 2 days of this arriving in New Zealand (it was a fast delivery after my initial order) this arrogant woman that talked about a hundred word a minute rang me wanting to bill me for the night cream, plus 2 more jars. Well I agreed stupid me. But cancelled for any further orders going off my credit card. So she agreed with that over the phone that I would not be billed for anything anymore. All this has happened well before the 2 week trial period. I am hoping I do not have to go down to the bank and cancel my card in the near future. The cream is nothing to rave about, its making my skin dry. The night cream is bleaching my skin as my eyebrows have gone white. The wrinkles are still there and are looking as normal. A lot of money for a lot of promise in a product that is overpriced with a company practicing unethical selling tactics.

  8. Elvira Starin

    I also had a promo to purchase these products for $1.00. I was shocked to see my credit card was charged for over $100.00. I had been using her products and was very pleasantly surprised how well my skin looked. No one knew I had started using these products. Many people told me how nice I looked. I had not changed anything other than my skin products. I am disabled and cannot afford these products, or I would continue using them.

  9. Anne-Louise

    I ordered some products from the Christie Brinkley website a few months ago. I think the items were advertised as only $1 or $2 for free samples, and I recall providing my debit card details online. Later, when I checked my debit card statement online, I felt shocked to see that over $100 had been debited (stolen) from my bank account from Christie Brinkley cosmetics. It took me quite a long time and much determination to have this rectified. I had to ask my bank to cancel my account altogether, cancel my current debit card, and have a new card issued by post with a waiting time of more than a week before I had the convenience of using my card. Also, I did phone the Christie Brinkley customer service number with no answer at first, and a call back after several attempts to talk to someone. They admitted they deducted the extra money from my account, apologised, and refunded the amount to me. I found this to be suspicious. I also felt naive to trust this company in the first place, and handing over my debit card details online feels risky now!

    I’m another with all of the same problems. Can’t contact them by phone or email. No return address. This is day 13. Going to try the bank to stop any charges. Does anyone have the name they bill under?

      Hi, I just got a call this morning 10/19/2016 9am. I missed the call and noticed it was a local number so I called back. Instead of ringing I got music like a cellphone can do… A woman asked if I was (had my first and last name because I filled out a form from Pinterest last night) I said I was, then she identified herself from the Christie Brinkley skincare line. I asked numerous questions but then I asked her to call me back in an hour and she said she would call at 1pm Eastern time. I live in CA and it was 9am, so she is 3 hours ahead-NOT LOCAL…but somehow was calling from a local area number. I’m talking the town over from where I live. Here’s the number-hoping this may help anyone trying to get in touch with a live person. . I live in Scotts Valley, CA.

    Back in early July 2016 I requested a free trail I just had to pay shipping cost. Plz. People don’t do this if you do you will be scaled I was, and they stole over $500 from my bank account. You can’t cancelle you are locked in the subscription permently.

  12. Rachael

    I don’t even care whether the product works or not, the company behind it is so unprofessional, I’m shocked. Like everyone else said, the fact that you are signing up for a subscription is artfully hidden as you go through the trial ordering process. You will get charged about $90 a month after that if you don’t cancel within 14 days of signing up for the trial product. I didn’t know this. I was out of town when the product came in the mail. I didn’t call them until 2 days after the end of this mysterious trial period, and they would not refund my money. It is embarrassing how little the customer service person cared about the issue.

    I, too, offered to return the product and was told no. $90 is a lot for a trial of a product that isn’t that amazing to begin with.

  13. schawn

    Unbelievable I fell for this scam. Make sure you read the very fine print because it’s misleading and customer service is not very servicing, they are however very good at maintaining a flat tone and repeating the script word for word over and over and over until even the calmest of person looses her mind.

  14. Principe

    Everyone , please read this . I too was told I could purchase a FREE TRIAL of EYE NOIR ( eye serum ) for @ $ 4.95 to try for 30 days … I was in and out of the hospital for three months and saw 3 boxes with two diff. creams .They had charged my credit card on the 15th day and two more times for $ 549. 50 total !! I WAS UPSET and called , and said I want my money back , where do I send this un opened stuff ? She said I couldn’t send it back , and I said you better cancel this now ! I asked for the company address , she said there isn’t one ! I told her to email proof that I cancelled it . She said she would . It’s been over 15 hrs !

    I was doing some research on this product I had seen it on FACE BOOK and the link took me to the Dr Oz show, now I’ve been caught out before with this quack so thats why I decided to do my own research and yet again the Dr advertising this product is a scam, so thank you ladies for you comments and I will not waste my money and the postage to Australia is always expensive

  16. Tessa

    Be careful of these so called ‘free’ trials. They are usually scams that have recurring charges on your credit card. Seems like only the people in the ads had improvement. Everyone else that tried it had no effect – if it smells like a scam and looks like a scam, you can be sure it probably is a scam.

  17. Debbie

    Based on the above feedback I will NOT order this product. But for ppl who must try these types of scams the best way to combat arguments with them charging your card; get a prepaid card and put only enough on the card to cover shipping. . Once the money is gone on the card they are not getting one cent from you.

  18. Tanya

    I first read several reviews on the product. Then I signed up for my free trial. I then checked my bank account. I somehow had two different charges on my account one for $4.99 and the other for $4.95. When I called the customer service phone number they told me that I signed up for both of them. They were actually quite argumentative about it. I did not sign up for the other skincare product that they’re claiming I did. When I argued with the customer service rep, he changed his tune to tell me that they would give me a longer supply for that amount of money. I told him it was a scam and I’d like him to refund my money. He argued and said that would not happen. He said that I could return the product when it came to me and gave me certain codes to put on the boxes for my return. When I then asked him if I was out the almost $10 for the shipping he said yes. And then I told him that I’d make sure that I would go on social media to smear this company all over the place. And then he said that he would send me an email with the refund of it. Time is gone by and I have not seen that yet. DON’T DO IT!!!!!!!

    Beware of Christy Brinkley Scam! Okay, so I don’t usually get caught out by internet advertising scams, but Christy Brinkley Skin Care is a total scam. When they say you get a Free Trial… they mean over NZD $200 per tiny pottle (30ml) of moisturiser, which they take from you in installments. I asked for both the night and morning ‘trial’, so that is over NZD $400! Sadly, these advertisements tend to catch out people who aren’t wealthy or can afford these payments. I only rang up because after money was taken from my account, I expected 2 ‘full sized’ pots of moisturiser. They said ‘you already received your supply, and your next installment is still to come out of your bank account’. The skin care was no better then my Neutrimetics (cruelty free), and 4x the price!!!

  21. Nat

    The product was okay.. no major changes sited with my skin. The day cream is light weight and not overly oily, particularly good if you are like me and have oily skin in general.

    Don’t be fooled by the cheap advertising of the product. I purchased it thinking it was a part of a free trial and ended up having over 100 bucks come out of my bank account. Also, once you do this, you are locked in and they will deduct payments from your account every 40 days. You will need to call the US to cancel all further subscriptions.

  22. Shirley D

    I ordered Brinkleys product, used for a month & saw no difference. Her company shipped my another months worth which I did not order. The customer service clerks were some of the rudest unprofessional people I have ever had the displeasure of dealing with. They trick you with their 14 day trail, and state you agreed to multiple shipments-NO I DID NOT! Good luck dealing with these thiefs!

    • Margaret Griffiths

      Yes Shirley D, I started to fill out a “free” trial but decided to to proceed when it got to leaving my credit card details – I had a feeling – although there is not mention of it on the site – that there would be ongoing shipments whether I wanted to continue with the products or not. Because I had gone past the point where I had left my phone number, I received a call from their “customer service” representatives who, when I said I was not longer interested in purchasing the products, began yelling at me wanting to know why have you changed your mind…tell me why have you changed your mind & was still yelling at me why have you…….as I hung up. Be wary people.

  23. Cm

    Not impressed.never got cream.waited and waited.they reordered.still never came. Then they charged me for cream i never recived. Be warned.im sure this is a scam

  24. DC

    Placed an order for the Free 30 day supply & They tried to charge me prior to the 30 days even after I notified them to cancel. They told me to return the items immediately & didn’t even attempt to give the 30 days. I missed their updated deadline due to business travel & they’ve tried to charge my CC every day since. This is not a Free 30 day supply as advertised if they they charge you for the full amount before you had a chance to really test it.

    • Jennifer Scott

      They have refused to give me a return address so I have no way of returning in the 30 days. I have phoned and emailed and they are very unethical
      Does anyone have s return address

  25. Suzann

    To NOT order this product. I returned it because it was too expensive. (almost $70.00 per jar) It was returned before the deadline, but I was still charged. When I called about it, they said it may take up to 10 days for the credit to appear. Funny, but the charge appeared instantly, but the credit takes 10 days? So, they have $70.00 of my money for up to 10 days. I should have never been charged. The customer service rep couldn’t answer my question as to WHY I was charged.
