I’m a staunch advocate of prevention is better than cure, health and skincare-wise. Thankfully, the groundwork I started cultivating in my early 20s seems to be paying off now that I’m in my early 40s. That and RBF. Resting Bitch Face. Wrinkles you said? nah I don’t have it. Yet.
But RBF aside, crow’s feet happen to be one of the first noticeable signs of aging. I had the opportunity to try Close Up Instant Wrinkles Reducer and Treatment, the brainchild of model/actress/activist Christie Brinkley. With ethereal beauty like hers, you know I’m up for the ultimate face rehab, haha!
Quite spendy at $79.95 (0.33 oz), this product claims to provide immediate tighter and finer-looking skin. “Use around eyes, mouth and forehead, it erases years from your appearance”. I’m not going to candy-coat, of course you and I know that there isn’t a product created yet to demystify the elusive fountain of youth. Skincare, alongside healthy lifestyle, sun protection, to name a few can delay aging but no matter how much we try, wrinkles will set in eventually. Fact of life. So if you’re 50 expecting to look 30 with this product alone, I call it wishful thinking my dear.
As for my experience with Close Up? While I did not feel the immediate tightening effect, it did a nice job of hydrating and smoothing the area around my eyes. It also helped the concealer stay put sans melting and caking. I just wish it came in a better tube if not elaborate packaging. I know the marketer can do more than plastic cheap-looking tube. I mean we’re talking $80 for a tiny product so it better be good from the outside-in.
