Magic Away Concealer
The NEW! magic wand of makeup you’ve been waiting for… Magic Away is a full coverage liquid concealer that Charlotte has been working on for five years to perfect the formula! Your new holy grail of concealers, this helps to reduce the appearance of dark circles, blemishes and imperfections, for fresher-looking second skin instantly.
HOW TO APPLY
Apply your foundation before your concealer to identify areas that need extra coverage. Once you have blended in your foundation, apply Magic Away Concealer to blemishes, redness and areas that need more coverage. For brighter-looking eyes, use a lighter shade to apply to under-eye circles, and tap with your ring finger to blend.
Goddess Skin Clay Mask
Charlotte created this supercharged clay mask in Ibiza. Based on an ancient Mediterranean beauty recipe, she combined gentle nutrient-rich Spanish clay, which extracts impurities and tightens the appearance of pores, with nourishing Sweet Almond Oil and the latest breakthrough ingredients like BioNymph Peptide Complex to create a glow-giving formula your complexion will drink in. This is great as part of the routine and is perfect for late-night hedonists who need an instant facial in a bottle.

STEP 2: Leave and relax for 10 minutes.

Use twice weekly as part of your skincare routine.
