A break-through multi-tasking ingredient, the BioNymph Peptide Complex, fights the aging 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 the seven wonders for your skin!
I was like the very many who couldn't wait to get this product after Wayne Goss continued to rave about it. (And I LOVE Wayne!) I was really, really hoping that I would be so blown away by the cream that I could justify the expense. And it is expensive. It is very nice. It doesn't take a lot and spreads well. It is a nice moisturize for my dry/combination skin and works well under makeup. But I have to say that I have used much less expensive moisturizers and had the same outcome. If it was a $50 cream, I would have given it 5 stars enthusiastically. But I can't justify the price for a "do-over" on this.
I bought this last year from the UK, and took some out of the big jar to try on my own skin for reference. It did an amazing job of moisturizing and plumping up the skin, but I was surprised by how obviously fragrant it was. I adore the scent and didn't have any kind of reaction, but I've had clients ask me not to use it on them due to the strong smell. It's a shame, because it's a lovely face cream and really does work well with makeup.
This is my holy grail. I ordered this from the UK last year when her line launched, and my skin glowed, my rosacea calmed down, and my fine lines were essentially gone. When I ran out, I tried other products for an entire year trying to replicate the same results. Nothing came remotely close, cheap brands nor expensive brands. I have no idea what's in this stuff but it is INCREDIBLE. I will use this for the rest of my life. It's the only moisturizer that works for my very sensitive redhead skin.
This is a terrific pre-makeup moisturizer and a very little goes a long way. Even with daily use, a jar should last a very, very long time.
I find that it is incredibly emollient, and at the same time, dries down to a really lovely finish very quickly and makes the perfect canvas for applying foundation, or just keeping your skin looking dewy without makeup. Yes, there is a bit of a scent, but I don't find it strong and I don't find that it lingers (and I am sensitive to scent in products).
This cream not only rejuvenates the skin, but leaves a divine delicious dewiness, which enhances and radiates your face to appear fresh and luminous. Absolutely obsessed with this product, it does not break me out, clog pores or irritate my skin. It may appear to be quite thick in the jar but once warmed up as you moisturise it just melts, ugh, heaven!
Wow, I was extremely skeptical about this cream, but after using it for 3 weeks, I have to say, now I understand why so many makeup artists love it. Its a great base for your make up. I rarely use foundation, instead I use loose powder all over my face because I have pretty clear skin. My skin is super oily, and this cream doesn't make it more so. I use benzoyl peroxide face wash and cream, so this balances it out nicely. Certain times of the month my skin will become dry, and this helps me out during those times to make sure it stays soft and supple. You don't need to use too much of this cream, I use very little actually, so it should last A LONG time. I know people are not too happy about the price point, but at the same time, I don't see too many people balking about Tom Ford's Intensive Infusion Moisturizer that contains the same amount and retails for $230.
It has a slight scent, and my skin is very sensitive. All my face and eye creams have no fragrance. This cream's slight fragrance didn't bother me in the least. I truly love this cream.
This product does what it promises and produced a hydrated and smooth surface for Charlotte Tilbury’s (CT) Light Wonder foundation. I’ve also used it under another foundation brand and it worked equally well. Magic Cream is the perfect combination of nourishing moisturizer and primer. Using it along with Charlotte’s Light Wonder foundation, Airbrush powder, Retoucher and Cheek to Chic blush created a beautiful complexion. I’m thoroughly delighted with all the CT products from Beautylish.
I was really excited to try this famous face cream after all the buzz about it in fashion magazines. I have been using it now once or twice a day for a month, and while I do not notice any drastic optimal changes to my skin, my skin stays very well hydrated without feeling heavy or oily in my T zone (I have combination skin). It absorbs really quickly and the texture of the cream is amazing. Nice jar too, almost like something out of the '80s but not in a cheesy way.
I give it 4 stars- because there are skin creams out there that can visibly improve your skin (though those are more expensive I guess...) I'll definitely finish my jar but may likely move onto a different product.
