About Face: Magic Cream in a Bottle
Imagine wrapping yourself in a down duvet covered in the finest Frette cotton. That’s what this thick moisturizer by Charlotte Tilbury feels like on skin…soft, comfortable, basically heaven. And it also has a faint rose scent that adds to the whole pampering effect.
Twenty years ago celebrity makeup artist Charlotte Tilbury started mixing up her Magic Cream moisturizer herself, to give celebrities’ and models’ skin an added zing on shoots.
Kate Moss, an old friend of Tilbury and godmother to her two children, has been using the cream for years. Living up to its name, it became so popular with celebrities that she decided to base her eponymous brand around it.
Like all the beauty products that I recommend (remember without sponsorship), I had to see for myself if all the hype about the product had merit. So I’ve been using Charlotte’s Magic Cream and Magic Eye Rescue for a month now and have noticed a huge transformation of my skin. My face now looks fresh, dewy and glowing.
The creams are so thick that I take a few minutes to massage it into my skin morning and night. This is also the first heavy cream that I’ve used that doesn’t clog my pores.
It’s a secret mix of patented anti-age ingredients, a hyaluronic acid booster, plus floral extracts that lift and transform tired skin.
Now I worry that if I stop using it, I’ll feel my skin aging over night. I guess you could say, I’m hooked.
