  1. Makeup remover in a clear bottle with text on it that reads, 'Take it all off' with a white-coloured lid.

    Step 1: Remove Makeup

    After a long day, it’s time to TAKE IT ALL OFF! My gentle, biphase makeup remover is perfect for removing even stubborn, waterproof makeup, dissolving long-wearing lipstick and eyeliner without a problem. The oil-based formula is infused with chamomile for a soothing, calming feel, while working to hydrate and condition the eyes, lips and lashes. It’s as easy as SHAKE, SOAK and SWIPE!

  2. Two facial cleansers, one in lemon-yellow packaging and the other in charcoal-black, with rose-gold coloured lids.

    Step 2: Double Cleanse

    The second step in your night time skincare routine is to perform a refreshing double cleanse using my gorgeous Goddess Cleansing Ritual. This two-step cleansing system includes a Citrus Oil Radiant Cleanser and a Purifying Charcoal Cleanser, working together to melt away makeup and draw out impurities to leave skin feeling fresh after a long day. Using gentle, circular motions, massage the citrus cleanser into dry skin then wash off with a damp towel, then follow up with the deeply purifying charcoal cleanser on damp skin for spa-cleansed finish.

  3. An open clay mask in white and rose gold tube with a rose-gold metallic lid.

    Step 3: Apply a Magical Mask

    Before heading to bed, treat your skin to a luxurious face mask. Applying a face mask helps to restore and replenish the skin while also giving you the perfect opportunity to relax and wind down. Goddess Skin Clay Mask is a moisturising clay mask that’s inspired by my love for Ibiza; the Mediterranean-inspired beauty recipe is infused with Spanish clay to refine the appearance of pores and give the complexion a beautiful, brightening effect. Smooth the clay formula onto the face and leave for 20 minutes, enjoying a nourishing facial that unlocks GODDESS SKIN, nightly.

    Step 4: Depuff Around the Eyes

    To care for tired-looking eyes, apply Cryo-Recovery Eye Serum to the eye area for a dreamy, depuffing effect. Formulated with a caffeine complex and ICEAWAKE™ for smoother, brighter-looking under eyes, this stimulating eye serum helps your eyes to look refreshed and awake morning and night! The metal component is innovatively crafted to fit the natural contours of the eye area, gliding across the skin with a cryotherapy-inspired cooling sensation. It’s the relaxing night time ritual your under eyes need!

    Step 5: Deeply Hydrating Serum

    To give the skin around-the-clock hydration, apply Charlotte’s Magic Serum Crystal Elixir morning and night! Infused with polyglutamic acid, an agent of moisture retention that boosts hydration by 4x as much as hyaluronic acid, this superpowered serum gives the skin deep hydration while helping it to stay magically moisturised through the night. The formula contains golden vitamin C for a beautiful, brightening effect as well as REPLEXIUM™ for more youthful-looking skin, acting as a fountain of youth to drench your skin with hydration night after night.

This rich recovery cream nourishes the eye area overnight, helping you to wake up with brighter-looking under eyes. At your rescue, this supercharged formula features time-released retinol to smooth the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles around the eyes, as well as plumping the look of the eye area and reducing the appearance of puffiness.

    Applying Magic Night Cream is the key to waking up with magically moisturised skin that feels and LOOKS FIRM, SMOOTH and PLUMP! I created my Magic Night Cream as BEAUTY SLEEP IN A JAR, infusing it with a magic matrix of skin-loving ingredients including winter daphne stem cell extract to smooth and tone the look of skin, time-released retinol to reduce fine lines and provide a firming effect, and red algae marigel to strengthen and soothe overnight. It’s research-powered and rich in texture, lathering the face in skin-rescuing balm for some much-needed night time nourishment.

Lightly press a few drops of the weightless oil into the skin and use light, pressing motions to let it absorb to unlock glowing, spa-like radiance!

Roll my magic lip oil onto the lips, lathering on the product to deeply nourish the lips to provide instant hydration. I created my rollerball lip oil to have the power of a serum and the comfort of an oil, infusing it with a 5-crystal complex as well as potent plant extracts to deliver magical moisture with a gorgeous, glossy finish. The silky-smooth formula helps to reduce the appearance of vertical lip lines and locks in moisture, so you can awake from your beauty sleep with luscious lips!
