Does Charlotte Tilbury ever get it wrong? The answer is no. From her stunning packaging, beautiful launches and epic products, I just cannot fault the brand. I always find myself stood at Charlotte Tilbury counters like a little over-excited magpie. I'm a sucker for beauty products, I always have been, particularly high-end and Charlotte Tilbury has been one of my favourites for quite some time now. I've never used a bad product by her. It was a very exciting day then when I got my hands on Charlotte's new Magic Night Cream and Magic Eye Rescue. Two skincare heroes. Let's discuss these new launches from Queen Tilbs...
The packaging is as stunning as ever. Charlotte Tilbury's products are always almost too beautiful to use. I love the simplicity of these two little pots.
First up, Charlotte Tilbury Magic Eye Rescue. A beautiful formula, soft, smooth and moisturising, it aims to firm the eye area and get rid of dark circles whilst revitalising the area too. I dot it underneath my eyes before bed. I like it because it feels so soft on my eyes, I trust Tilbs products so I know that it's doing me some good. I wake up and my eyes do look a lot less puffy and tired. It's got some serious magic in it too which I guess it why...see below.
Both of these new launches are crammed full of amazing ingredients (8 super ingredients to be precise). I don't usually like to sit and ramble about ingredients for hours but these deserve shouting about. Charlotte Tilbury's Magic Night Cream is an over-night powerhouse basically, it has a live stem cell elixir in it which is made up of 8 youth-boosting ingredients. What a mouthful but seriously, when you read into what's inside this little tub of magic and understand what these ingredients do to the skin, you'll want to run to the shop and buy it. Immediately. When I was younger, I used to hate anti-ageing products but I was always told that actually, you should use ageing products as a preventative measure rather than a way to fix the skin. This product isn't just an anti-ageing product though, the idea behind this product is to make you wake up with the best skin of your life. Her Magic Night cream is meant to be drank by the skin; it plumps, smoothes and tightens the skin with it's very special time release ingredients which work on your skin hour by hour. This product works to rebuild and renew the skin and I cannot get enough of it, already, I am hooked. That means hydrating, softening, smoothing and basically, multi-tasking to make sure you look renewed, energised and smooth. Count me in. Telling people that this cream will 'give you the best skin of your life' is a very bold statement but if anyone can do it, it's Charlotte Tilbury.
It contains a lot of different ingredients including Winter Daphne Stem Cells Extract: for firmer feeling skin. This also helps the skin to look more 'alive' because it boosts micro-circulation.
Retinol Molecules: It of course, includes retinol molecules, which are known to boost the rejuvenation process of skin cells whilst increasing collagen content = more radiant and younger looking skin.
More ingredients? Yes more. Next up, Red Algae Marigel to make your skin super soft (it's full of calcium and magnesium, which builds a strengthening and protective barrier).
Frangipani: To soothe and purify (I have quite a lot of Elemis products with this ingredient in, I love it).
Bionymph Peptide: This increases collagen and fibre levels, fights free radicals and stimulates cell energy to reduce the appearance of wrinkles as well as improving skin elasticity and generally smoothing things over.
There are so many other ingredients inside (8 in total, because apparently Charlotte is inspired by numerology and in Chinese prophecy, 8 is one of the most positive numbers which is a sign for eternity and prosperity.) Basically, this little pot of magic is rammed full of ingredients which really should give you the best skin yet.
So how do I feel about these products? You can't call them hyped up products because the proof is in the pudding, these products really are rammed full of the best ingredients so surely, that means these creams are going to be amazing? Yes, yes they are but obviously it's something that needs to be trialled over a long period of time to see a real difference. After a few weeks, my skin feels firmer, softer and happier. A lot of people have actually said my skin has looked better in the past two weeks since I've been using these two products before bed every night. I love the idea that you wake up with better skin and with these creams, I feel happy knowing that I'm putting something natural and good onto my skin to help it repair as I sleep.
