As the winter months approach, I seem to be treating myself a little more often. Everyone needs a treat though, right? Back me up here girls. I recently purchased a moisturiser that has been on my radar for a while. After reading incredible reviews and also some reviews saying it is perhaps a little pricey. I decided to put together my own Charlotte Tilbury Magic Cream Review. Is it really ‘magic‘? The Charlotte Tilbury products definitely sit in a high end, luxurious category. So the question on everyone’s lips – is it worth the higher price tag?
Before we get into the product details, I want to make sure you guys get a real feel for my whole experience of shopping with Charlotte Tilbury. From the minute I clicked ‘add to basket‘. As well as the actual results of the product, I think it is important to know how the shopping experience was, the shipping, the packaging, the whole she-bang! I’ll be including all of those juicy details in my Charlotte Tilbury Magic Cream review as well.
One of the first things that caught my eye on the beautiful website, is that when selecting the moisturiser and scrolling down the read all the information. You are able to watch a video tutorial of Charlotte using this product on a model in a step by step guide. With extra hints and tips that she likes to use to get the most out of the skincare product. I think this is a really amazing personal touch and it is SO helpful. I picked up some great application tips myself. It was great to watch Charlotte work her ‘magic’ (Get it? Haha, sorry that was a bad joke!). You can also find, product information, more application tips and of course the all important ingredients.
The Magic Cream Moisturiser comes in three different sizes – 15ml £27.00, 50ml £70, 150ml – £180. I decided to go for the smaller tub as I wanted to be certain I loved it before I splashed the cash on a bigger size. When checking out your basket, you are given the option to pick two complimentary samples or either skincare or makeup. A fab way to try some more products, which my bank can thank me for later haha. Without completing boring you I will move swiftly through the shipping, 2-3 working days, approximately £3 which is pretty standard in the UK. My delivery arrived prompt and perfect!
Now, when this little beauty arrived, it was inside such beautiful packaging. A lovely Charlotte Tilbury parcel box finished off with burgundy tissue paper and a cream envelope with Charlotte Tilbury written in rose gold. I have absolutely zero photos of this as a tore it open aggressively hoping it was a letter from Charls inviting me for afternoon tea. Unfortunately, it was just my invoice. But a girl can dream for thirty seconds. I pulled out a cute pink box, with more rose gold detail and inside was my beautiful Magic Cream Moisturiser. From the moment I set eyes on it, I knew you guys would want a Charlotte Tilbury Magic Cream Review and I knew I’d enjoy sharing everything with you about it!
You cannot fault the packaging. It is absolutely stunning. Everything about it feels expensive, high quality and deluxe. The texture of the cream is beautiful, super creamy but not too heavy. It glides onto your skin without feeling sticky or leaving any tight dryness. I would definitely say a little goes a long way, so try not to get too product happy and use it all up too quickly!
After using the Magic Cream Moisturiser for a few weeks before bed, I have noticed my skin feels a lot more hydrated. When I wake up I notice my skin has a natural bright glow, making me look like I have had my beauty sleep! Having combination skin myself, I would recommend this moisturiser for any skin type. It isn’t too heavy for an oily or sensitive skin. But will absolutely hydrate dry and ageing skin too. Brilliant for smoothing out fine lines and minimising pores thanks to the amazing Hyaluronic Acid. Personally, I love using this as a night cream, as I always use a moisturiser with SPF in the mornings.

Is it worth the hype?
Everything about my Charlotte Tilbury experience has been fabulous. The reason I wanted to include all of the in-between bits in mu Charlotte Tilbury Magic Cream review such as ordering the products, how you feel when it arrives, the packaging, the personal touch with the little letter (invoice but looks like a beautiful letter). Is to really make you understand that it is not only a face cream you are buying but it is the whole experience.
Some people wouldn’t be too fussed about all the trills. But personally, I love that special feeling, If I’m going to treat myself, you best believe I am going ALL OUT. Overall, I can understand why people think the Charlotte Tilbury Magic Cream is slightly pricey. But when you add all of the extra touches, it is a luxury and you really do get what you pay for. The results for my skin have been fabulous and have exceeded my expectations.
I hope you have really loved my Charlotte Tilbury Magic Cream Review. Is it worth the hype you ask? Absolutely my little shopaholics. I am a Charlotte Tilbury convert! I think we all need to take time to treat ourselves, we deserve to be treated once in a while! When was the last time you treated yourself and what was the special something you chose?
