So many questions come up again and again over the Fashion Weeks, but the most asked question this season was about what goes into my hand-blended moisturising potion, Charlotte’s Magic Cream…
My secret’s out… Over the past 20 years I’ve been mixing my own age-defying skincare known in the industry as CHARLOTTE’S MAGIC CREAM. I’ve been testing it backstage for years and models and my regular clients are already hooked. It’s a secret mix of patented anti-age ingredients, a hyaluronic acid booster plus floral extracts that lift and transform tired skin in an instant! Think of a wilting flower that’s just been watered – skin is flooded with moisture for a glowing complexion in a flash, no matter how dehydrated or lacklustre your skin may look.
A break-through, multi-tasking ingredient, the BioNymph Peptide Complex, fights the ageing process on all fronts: it stimulates collagen production and cell energy and fights free radicals, to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and smooth the skin. A hyaluronic acid booster called Sodium Hyaluronate floods skin with moisture, re-plumping the skin. And an infusion of rose hip oil and vitamin E bring your complexion back to life. Whether you’re stressed at your desk, dehydrated after a long-haul flight or an all-night hedonist with hungover skin, cheat the appearance of 8 hours sleep with CHARLOTTE’S MAGIC CREAM, for a lasting dewy, plumped-up finish. It’s one of my seven wonders for your skin!
• The BioNymph Peptide Complex is a unique, patented anti-age ingredient that multi-tasks in the skin, fighting the ageing process on all fronts. It increases collagen & fibre levels, prevents fibre break-down, fights free radicals and stimulates cell energy to reduce the appearance of wrinkles, improve skin elasticity & generally smooth things over.
• To properly protect your skin from the ageing effects of the Sun, I always tell my clients to use anti-UVB and anti-UVA filters. My MAGIC CREAM has an SPF15 and, most importantly, an anti-UVA filter to protect the skin from year-round ageing effects of UVA.
• Sodium Hyaluronate forms a film of hyaluronic acid over the skin to seal in moisture, whilst extracts of Wild Pansy promote the renewal of hyaluronic acid in the skin surface to retain moisture. Skin is plumped-up and youthfully dewy.
• A mix of rose hip oil, camellia oil and anti-oxidant vitamin E transforms a grey complexion into hydrated, mirror-shine skin, nourishing Vitamin A helps improves skin firmness and smoothness and energetic Vitamin C is able to promote collagen activity for more youthful skin.
• Damask rose water and organic aloe vera stimulate skin regeneration, fighting the signs of ageing, naturally and gracefully.
• Extracts of Frangipani, the symbol of eternity, form a soothing, purifying and hydrating comfort-blanket on the skin.
• Plus a little bit of top secret magic!

All Reviews For CHARLOTTE'S MAGIC CREAM
As an advocate for Charlotte Tilbury's beautiful products, and far too many lipstick purchases later I finally purchased Magic Cream and was so excited. Yes, like others I did wonder if £70 could be justified for this cream, but couldnt wait to try it after it promising wonderfully glowy skin. The packaging is pretty but the jar itself isnt glass its a thick plastic still pretty, but I'd prefer a glass jar for the price point. The cream is very thick and very much reminds me of rose scented cold cream. The smell is nice enough, but I'm not really a rose scent person. Also its almost as if underneath the rose I can detect a very slight chemical type smell which is probably the ingredient which isnt suited to my skin. I had high hopes for the results but was left feeling disappointed. Maybe its just teh fact this cream isnt suited to my skin, but there's almost an underlying harshness to the cream which belies the luxurious thick texture. It didnt react great with my skin, and left it a bit patchy and almost dries it out a little, its as though theres an ingredient which just doesnt like my skin and almost feels a bit tingly on my skin not in a good way. It does leave skin glowy certainly, but I did notice a few blemishes and spots where I wouldnt normally get them. I have used it for a few months and still have loads left in the jar, but have stopped using it now as I've given it a chance and its just not good with my skin. I know other reviewers have loved the cream and it's results, but its definitely not for me!
I love this! I was *seriously* skeptical about paying so much for moisturiser, but I will repurchase this again and again... I had read some very negative reviews of this cream on various websites, but experience has taught me that many of them are not genuine reviews and are simply people who haven't even tried the product concerned and are jumping on an 'anti' bandwagon for whatever reason. This is rich but light on the skin, smells divine and moisturises and plumps up my skin like nothing ever has before. The texture lends itself to the suggested massage and never dries into those little dry balls of product you sometimes get if you do that. Yet despite its richness, it sinks into the skin and leaves a beautiful finish on the face which is perfect for makeup or simply going bare-faced. Although the cream is expensive, you don't need any sort of serum or primer with it, and so if you factor that in, the proportionate cost comes down considerably.
I am a convert!
I have heard about this cream for some time and after reading the exceptional reviews was worried that due to my sensitive skin it wouldn't work as well for me. I am happy to say I couldn't be more wrong! The initial impression was how beautiful the packaging was. Both of the box it came in and the container itself is stunning. The cream itself smells lovely and even though the initial texture feels quite thick it makes the skin feel very smooth and supple and feels wonderfully light. The video on the website with techniques showed by Charlotte is very handy and when recreating the video on myself I could definitely see the difference in my skin. It was glowing and baby soft. I was worried after using it for a few more days it may clog up my skin and cause break outs but that isn't the case at all. It's looked better than it ever has and I can't wait to buy the clay mask to accompany it in my skin care routine. For £70 it may be seen as a little pricey, but I ensure you it is absolutely worth it!
Unlike some of the other items from the CT range, this has no negatives for me. I know some people have mentioned that the fragrance additives can irritate skin but for me it was fine, and normally I am sensitive to those sorts of ingredients. The smell is lovely and the texture is unlike any other cream I have tried. I have already purchased another jar in preparation for this first one ending!
Every winter I suffer from really dry yucky skin thanks to Mother Nature. Have tried so many creams promising moisture, glow etc. I have tried from drug store brands to higher end brands like khiel's and they provided minimum moisture to my skin. After trying this no joke magic cream I feel like I finally got the moisture and glow to the skin I have been craving all winter long. Ty Charlotte for this Magic cream and giving my skin the glow of a godess I honestly needed. You are a life saviour
I was very dubious about this cream after I heard all of the hype but decided I couldn't contain my curiosity any longer and took the plunge. It is a high price tag but I do feel that the product is worth it. It gives me a lovely glow when I use it and makes my skin baby soft. Makeup applies beautifully over it and it just feels like a mini facial on a daily basis. I have combination skin and feared the cream may be too rich but it works wonders for me and doesn't cause any breakouts. Love this cream and would repurchase, the gorgeous jar takes pride of place on my dressing table.
Like one of the previous reviewers the magic cream did not suit my skin. It feels lovely and smells great, however it dried my skin out and left large red blotches.
This product deserves the hype it's gotten. I've been using this for 8 months now and my skin has never looked better. I had a period of not using it as often as I would normally (day and night) to see if it really was better than my other moisturisers and the difference was huge. I can't even tell you how much I appreciate the Magic Cream now, I mean I loved it before but after comparing it to something else I love it even more because I know it works! My skin looks and feels better and stays moisturised, it's the only moisturiser that locks in the moisture on my skin because in winter my face gets very dry which just ruins the way my makeup looks but I can't sing this products praises enough! Anyone who says it isn't worth the money is lying to themselves.
Negative side the magic cream not suits for all skin type, I tried this magic cream last night when it arrived,can't wait to try it on but disappointed my face goes bumpy it is like the ants bitten my face,so be careful not really suits
In all skin type. So I stick my own cream,like other review I been read the same reaction like me. Might be some ingredients not really suit my skin.
Positive side, all products,from magic glow,foundation and retouched ct I love it! Makes my face glowy radiant,dewy effect looks fresh and I can't stop looking my face in the mirror how really luxurious looks on my face. It's worth it though it's expensive but if you buy some other brands make up your wasting your money you cannot see the effect on your face,it is not cakes very light on your skin. The packaging was absolutely brilliant very neat and luxurious package. The CT mascara was brilliant,amazing as well, my eyes looks bigger it open up your eyes,looks fresh and very easy to use it.
I will stick the CT products make up range except the magic cream. In my opinion not all skin type are suit this magic cream.
It is truly magical as it makes you feel wonderful and you just glow inside out :) can't live without it since I tried it.
It seems everyone (no matter what their skin type) who tries this magic potion loves it. These reviews speak for themselves. It seems as if Charlotte really understands what women need and what has been lacking with a lot of skincare.... An oil rich, buttery cream like this is the missing ingredient for so many women. You need not fear the term "oil-rich" because this cream will actually balance out the skin, no matter what your skin type!! I don't know how Charlotte did it, but she truly has put beautiful skin in a jar. First pot I bought, I loved it, but bawked at the price. Thought I could find something similar. Five months went by, and my skin didn't look as fresh. Went back to my second pot, and lo and behold. It was back! The fresh, healthy, rested look. I wish it wasn't so pricey, but I'm finding out as I'm getting older, I really look so much better and younger with it! Thank goodness it's not just an anti ager... This also wears so beautifully alone or under makeup. Personally, I think it's better than any silicone laden ho hum primer out there ( which really does nothing skin care wise, but sit on your skin as an extra layer) as a base for makeup. I tell myself I'm saving money when I buy this cream, because it's my anti ager, sun protection and makeup primer in one. My only gripes....the jar needs to be bigger for the price, and I wish the SPF was 30 instead of 15. SPF 30 seems pretty standard these days, and I feel safer with a higher SPF. Maybe soon, Charlotte will come out with a version with a higher SPF, and also a night version with no SPF? That would be fab. But if you are someone who wants the ultimate luxury in skincare, and a product which can do it all, look no further. This American is stocking up like a madwoman when I leave the UK and move back to the States. I wouldn't be without this, and I can't wait until she brings this cream to America. It may sound funny to say, but....God bless Charlotte Tilbury! She is a genius.
There is not much more I can say about Charlotte's magic cream, other than it's the most amazing product ever. I am utterly obsessed and can gladly say it will be a regular on my dressing table.
It's light enough for my oily/combination skin and smells divine.
This is the most incredible cream, I've tried pretty much every product range out there over the years and can definitely say I've never come across anything like this.
It's very hydrating but not at all oily, it seems to blur or fill in fine lines, creases disappear, skin tone evens out, it gives a really natural healthy glow and flawless finish providing a perfect base for Wonderglow and Light Wonder which are rather wonderful too. My skin feels amazing and looks the best it's ever looked, I'm hooked! Some people have mentioned price but I can now get rid of my moisturiser, primer, fine line filler, etc, etc so for me it works out as good value for money. Personally I will now never be without a pot of this fabulous cream.
Truly lovely product. Highly recommended. Expensive but worth it!
I got this as part of my birthday present and it is amazing! Use this after multi-miracle glow and your skin will be the envy of everyone! As soon as I put it on I noticed a difference and everyone can use it from my sister to my boyfriend. I will definantly be buying this again when my pot runs out.
Fantastic product leaves skin plump and glowing not greasy make up does not slide off with this love it.
I think the cream is lovely. It does make your skin glow and works very well with foundation. However I was very disappointed by the packaging. I was expecting a glass jar and not a plastic container. The cheaper packaging has really taken the shine off my purchases. :-(
I can not stress it enough how amazing this cream is , I have been lucky enough to get the sample size and after testing it I bought 3 , because I can't live without it. I have got combination skin and was worried that it will be too rich for me , but no - my skin gets the most luscious glow ever and it's so soft. It's a must for me for ever !
Lovely soft creamy moisturiser that left my skin feeling like silk. Really nice and a great primer for my make up.
This really works on oily skin, the cream itself does give a real glow and keeps the skin moisturised
all day, 2 wks of use and hardly shows in pot, 10/10 - for me this beats Creme de la Mer on all fronts,
This is a fabulous moisturising cream. It smells divine and I agree with Sarah that a little goes a long way. The cream is absorbed very easily into my skin and has made it feel incredibly soft. And, yes, I did get a dewy look, even with my skin (normal-dry). The 4 step instructions for the facial which are printed inside the box are brilliant too!
I have sensitive skin which reacts badly to many creams and lotions but this miracle cream soothes my skin and makes it feel like silk.
It leaves my skin prepared and primed beautifully for make-up.
I love it!
The first thing I thought about the cream was that it wasn't too greasy - unlike some expensive competitors - it's easy to blend and makeup glides on but stays put. I like the smell, very delicate. Good so far, I then waited a few weeks to gauge the ongoing benefit. I was prepared to be cynical - after all, everyone's skin is different and skincare reviews are frankly, very specific to your skin type/age/lifestyle.
BUT, this suited my teenage daughter as much as it has suited me. My skin looks dewy and plump and my make up lasts better without getting shiny. My daughter (who has been banned from using MY cream, so she has stolen my travel pot instead) has no breakouts but her skin is smooth and dry patch-free.
I am converted. And I am very loyal.
OMG. Just love this cream. Having used many top range moisturisers, I am now a convert to this lovely, creamy moisturiser. Love the way my skin looks and feels after applying. I now glow like never before!
A beautifully formulated rich moisturiser. Has a delicate scent of rose. Leaves the skin glowing and hydrated for the whole day. Forms a perfect base for makeup. My skin feels soft and smooth. Love love love this cream.
This cream is so light, yet so effective. No greasiness — it blends easily into your skin and leaves it soft and hydrated. You only need a little. A magic potion indeed.
Yes! Your skin will be really hydrated, soft silk , glowing... just perfect..prepared for makeup...
A little of this amazing cream goes a long way. It's texture is very light and it blends flawlessly into the skin. I used this with the Multi Miracle Glow Cleanser and it completely awoke my skin. Skin was baby soft and glowing. Love this product.
This cream is so light, yet so effective. No greasiness — it blends easily into your skin and leaves it soft and hydrated. You only need a little. A magic potion indeed.- Victoria
