A woman claims she tried a skincare product affiliated with Christie Brinkley Skincare only to be left with burns on her face ... so now she's filed a lawsuit even though Brinkley says she has nothing to do with the product.
According to a lawsuit filed in Tennessee, Carla Young claims on March 3, 2017, she signed up for a trial of SkinNoir and EyeNoir to be shipped to her home. She says the products are advertised to "replenish and rejuvenate skin."
The lawsuit states that "Christy Brinkley Skincare is known to have helped promote, manufacture and/or distribute the SkinNoir and EyeNoir products."
Young claims she used the product a few days later and "became aware of burns on her face as a result of the SkinNoir and EyeNoir products."
She says she did not change her skincare regimen in any way other than using these products.
In her lawsuit, Young claims the company should have known "that it was not appropriate for human consumption and could cause serious chemical."
Young is suing for pain and suffering, plus medical expenses and lost wages. She is seeking at least $450,000 in damages.
A rep for Christie Brinkley Authentic Skincare tells The Blast, "Unfortunately, it has come to our attention that a rogue seller has used the Christie Brinkley name and images to distribute their products. By no means do these products have any relation to Christie Brinkley Authentic Skincare or Atlantic Coast Brands. We are working diligently to rectify and shut down this situation; fully prepared to take legal action."
