Charlotte Tilbury is a British makeup-artist turned miracle worker with her new range of both makeup and skincare products. While the line is fairly new, just being released in September of 2013, and just starting to really make it way over to the Unites States, and boy am I glad that I did. Over Christmas break, I had the privilege to do a haul of her makeup and skincare products.
These skincare products have been a long time in the making, Charlotte Tibury has been mixing and making her own moisturizer for years backstage before photo-shoots and fashion shows, and now it is available to be bought, and thank heavens for that. While these skincare products retail price is outrageously expensive, I do not regret any of these purchases at all. These products have not only transformed my skin, but changed my attitude towards skincare as a whole; in the past I could skip washing my face and not feel bad, but because of these products I have now become religious about my skincare routine.
Charlotte’s Magic Cream, retails at 100 dollars per jar, and while I cringe writing that, I don’t regret the purchase for one minute, this is a heavy duty moisturizer that glides right on the skin and has virtually no weight to it at all. It blends seamlessly and really gives the skin a glow that does not look greasy or oily. It also helps set a great base for foundation.
Now the product that I was most impressed with and can’t ever picture my life without is the Magic Night Rescue Cream, retailing at 145 dollars. This winter I had a severe dry skin issue, and for some reason nothing was able to help until I started using this product. This is a night cream like nothing I have ever used before. It is like a gel consistency and it leaves the skin feeling almost sticky for a few minutes after using it, but you wake up the next morning with the smoothest, softest skin you have ever had. Now when it comes to this product a little goes a LONG way you only need the smallest amount and it spreads so easily, this product has easily become the most used in my skin care routine.
The final skincare product I purchased was the Goddess Skin Clay Mask, retailing at 70 dollar. This product is a clay mask that not only helps with some of my skin issues, but is not too drying. Usually with my dry skin, using a clay mask on me is just asking to dry me out even more, but this mask is incredibly hydrating. I usually leave it on for way longer than the directions say on the bottle, which is probably not to smart on my part, but even after all that it still manages to impress me and leave my skin goddess like (if that is even possible).
After the LONG wait, Charlotte Tilbury did not disappoint, I have a feeling that she is going to become a permanent staple in both my skincare and makeup routine. Stay tune for more Charlotte Haul updates as the weeks go on….
