My Beauty Secrets

It was August 2014 when I bought my very first jar of Charlotte Tilbury Magic Cream. A pop-up counter had just arrived in Selfridges Manchester and I was absolutely desperate to try the mystical potion of wonder for myself. 3 years on and countless different creams later, I find myself right back where I started – infatuated with Magic Cream. From Embryolisse Lait-Crème Concentré to Clarins HydraQuench and Kiehls Ultra Face Cream, nothing compares to CT MC, despite all my eager efforts. My secret to beautiful skin is a thorough skincare routine; this sumptuous crème has a light and illuminating formula like no other and instantly hydrates my lacklustre complexion. Magic Cream exudes a decadent rose aroma that is delicately feminine and as the glamorous jar resides on my vanity, I can’t help but think that this cream will always be worth its mighty £70 price tag. As I discussed here, I love using cream products especially in the summer because they create such a radiant and skin-like finish. Thus, when I spied the Nars Orgasm …

Review: Embryolisse Lait-Crème Concentré

My go-to moisturiser is and I’m pretty sure always will be, Charlotte Tilbury Magic Cream. This is a product seriously worth the hype, I did a review here if you want to know more. Since I did that review, I’ve had some requests for a cheaper alternative since 50ml Magic Cream retails for £70.

Signs of dryness and discomfort are eliminated whilst the skin is left beautifully moisturised, nourished and repaired with a revitalised and radiant appearance.” I have found Crème Concentré doesn’t reduce my dry skin as well as Magic Cream however it is a  good dupe. I find it very moisturising with a lovely scent that only lingers for a moment. It melts into your skin effortlessly and it’s creamy constancy is lovely to …

Review: Charlotte Tilbury Magic Cream

Magic Cream by Charlotte Tilbury was the most reviewed and raved about skincare products I stumbled upon this summer.I consistently saw blog posts and youtube videos praising this transforming jar and so of course, I had to get it! I am a follower of Charlotte Tilbury and her world-renowned artistry in the fashion and beauty industry anyway and after being a fan of other products in her collection, I knew an adoration for this would be a certainty. ‘Magic Cream’ was entitled by the models that first used the blend, which was mixed by Charlotte herself backstage at fashion shows. It was the only formula that would rescue and rejuvenate their skin after vigorous makeup looks and glam sessions for shoots, events and shows. Finally Charlotte Tilbury has arrived for the masses at a Selfridges near you and after using the Magic Cream for a month I truly don’t know what I would do without it. It is massively hydrating and soaks into the skin wonderfully. There is a decadent smell about it that lingers …
