What makes this cream truly “magic” is its matrix of oils and ingredients that flood your skin with moisture, making for a glowier, dewier, plumper-looking complexion. Affectionately known as the “magic eight,” the ingredients include vitamins C and E, which work to brighten skin; bionymph peptide to plump; hyaluronic acid for hydrating purposes; camellia oil to lock in moisture; rose-hip oil for added hydration and depuffing; shea butter to nourish and soften; aloe vera for smoothing; and frangipani flower extract, which has moisturising benefits and gives Charlotte Tilbury Magic Cream its delicate, calming fragrance. And the best bit is the tubs are now refillable (making them much plant-friendlier than before).
“I always say that you can’t have a beautiful painting without a beautiful canvas,” reveals the woman herself, Charlotte Tilbury. “Which is why I never do makeup without my iconic, award-winning Charlotte’s Magic Cream. It gives me the perfect-looking, glowing canvas before makeup. The amazing thing about this cream is that it doesn’t take 28 days—you see the visible results in just 28 seconds! That’s what made people trust and believe in the magic.”
Having been using it myself for well over a year now, I now understand why Charlotte Tilbury’s Magic Cream continues to be so popular. Last year, one jar of the potent cream was sold somewhere in the world every two minutes, and I have no doubt I’ve been contributing to these figures myself. And if this article hasn’t made my feelings known, I seriously suggest you join me.
