Charlotte Tilbury Review

IMG_3055

I was so happy to find these in my mailbox as I’ve never tired any Charlotte Tilbury product, and what better way to start than with cult favorite Charlotte’s Magic Cream and Wonder Glow.

Charlotte’s Magic Cream contains a peptide complex that stimulates collagen product to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and smooth skin. Rose hip oil and vitamins A, C &  E improve skin firmness and leaves skin with a dewy finish. I found that the skin was very moisturizing without being heavy, and absorbed quickly. This is a very expensive cream, but  a little goes a long way so the jar will last a very long time. I obviously only got one use out of the packet, so I can’t speak to any long term effects, but my skin looked great the day I used it.

The Wonder Glow is a complexion-enhancing light diffuser that is intended to wear under your makeup. It contains light-reflecting microspheres  that diffuse light to blur away lines and impart a  luminous glow on the skin. Additionally, this contains the same peptide complex as the cream to reduce the appearance of fine lines. I was slightly alarmed when I first saw this on my fingers as it looks like a shimmery sunless tanner. However, when applied in moderation to my face it did give me a glow and also helped to hid redness on my cheeks. Since I used less of this per application, I was able to get a few uses out of this and thought it was really nice and not nearly as scary as it looked!
