NEW YORK, May 2, 2016 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- In celebration of Mother's Day, Christie Brinkley, supermodel, actress, entrepreneur, mother and Smile Train Goodwill Ambassador, today announced the launch of the Ageless Beauty Set, a limited edition anti-aging skincare kit from her Christie Brinkley® Authentic Skincare™ line. From now through the end of 2016 (while supplies last), the brand will donate 20 percent of the purchase price from each set sold to Smile Train, the world's largest cleft charity.
The two-piece beauty set includes the Uplift + IR Defense™ Firming Neck & Décolleté Cream, a luxurious cream that helps firm, smooth, brighten and rejuvenate the look of the delicate skin of the neck and chest, and Refocus Under Eye Treatment, a potent anti-aging serum infused with the brand's proprietary Bio-Copper Complex™ that visibly reduces fine lines, wrinkles and crepiness around the eyes.
The set sells for an MSRP of $69 and is available at more than 700 Kohl's department store locations throughout the United States and on Kohls.com. "The Ageless Beauty Set is a great way to treat mom this Mother's Day, making her feel special and it's the best way to make her smile," said Brinkley. "As a mother of three, I'm excited to celebrate this special day and offer women my products that deliver real, visible results. Each gift set sold will benefit Smile Train, a wonderful charity close to my heart that helps to create new smiles for children in need around the world."
Brinkley has been working with Smile Train as a Goodwill Ambassador for nearly 10 years to raise awareness of the issues faced by children living with untreated clefts. Millions of children in developing countries with untreated clefts live in shame and, more importantly, have difficulty eating, breathing and speaking. Smile Train's sustainable model provides training, funding and resources to empower local doctors in the developing world to provide 100 percent-free cleft repair surgery and comprehensive cleft care in their own communities. Cleft repair surgery is simple, and the transformation is immediate. Since its founding in 1999, Smile Train has provided more than one million cleft repair surgeries.
"We are grateful for Christie's continued generosity and efforts to support children living with untreated clefts," said Susannah Schaefer, CEO of Smile Train. "Cleft repair surgery not only provides a child with the precious gift of a smile, but also a fresh opportunity for a full and productive life."
