Christie Brinkley Complete Clarity Daily Facial Exfoliating Polish

I recently purchased Christie Brinkley’s Complete Clarity Daily Facial Exfoliating Polish after seeing her interview on the Dr. Oz show.

At 61 years young, she credits her anti aging secrets to being grateful, eating a vegetarian diet, taking probiotics, exfoliating her face daily, and using a moisturizing lotion with SPF.  Those are fairly simple rules to live by and along with her good genetics, she has maintained her beautiful appearance.

I found the face polish to be lightly abrasive with a fresh floral scent.  The exfoliating beads are made of lactic acid and the product also contains salicylic acid which gave my face a bit of a tingle when applied.

Christie Brinkley Package Waste

When opening the box, I was surprised to see so much package waste.  The tube is 3 oz and it would have been nice to design a box to fit the tube.

I did enjoy finding the tube of polish fully sealed.  There are far too many sticky fingers out there, “trying before you buy” and it ruins the product for other buyers.

Overall, I like the polish and I think it was a good purchase, but not a must have or repeat purchase.  There are so many scrub type products on the market that once I’ve finished this product, I’ll move on to something else.

What is your favorite facial scrub?

Cheers,
Monica.

    I saw your post on IG. It looked interesting. I’m sorry you weren’t blown away by it. But it sounds like you’ll at least get some use from it. I use a MAC Volcanic Ash exfoliator. It’s messy, but I LOVE it! I’ve repurchased quite a few times.

      Yah, it’s an ok scrub, nothing to get excited about. I’ve always wanted to try the Mac Volcanic Ash .. I don’t think Mac sells it anymore, but see that I can still get it at Nordstrom’s

    I pretty much believe what Christie says, because somehow this is what I do :) I seldom use creams, for my makeup for the blog yes, but not on a daily basis, so sleeping well, being grateful and avoiding stress when possible I think are effective. BUT a good scrub is nice to remove “dead” skin :) I think I liked this one you described, although you said they should redesign the packaging and that it is good, but not a must-have. I don’t exfoliate my face often, because of my sensitive skin (and recommendation of my dermatologist), but when I do I have a product called Ionax scrub – unfortunately discontinued, so I spare every drop of it :) Maybe this one would be good when my tube finishes!

    What was the price for that scrub, Monica? You said you bought it on QVC, and I’m wondering whether the line will be carried in any stores at some point? I am supposedly being sent something from the range, but it hasn’t arrived yet. I’m glad you liked the scrub. I have a bunch of facial exfoliators that I like though most don’t have any beads in them, instead they’re glycolic acid/AHA. But I do have a cool one from Skin Inc that is clear, and when it dries, the skin cells sort of ball up and come off. It’s odd but effective.

      I purchased the polish from Kohl’s for $24. You can also purchase her products on HSN.com

      I think it’s an a-ok scrub, but I really want to try more Paula’s Choice products.
