Yes, you read correctly.
Charlotte's Magic Cream has been a cult product for decades. And now, after 27 years in the making, we're seeing a new addition to the Magic Cream family.
Introducing the new Charlotte Tilbury Magic Cream Light - a gentler, lighter iteration of the original Magic Cream. It arrives on June 16 on CharlotteTilbury.com, so you still have a little while to wait before you can get your hands on it.
For those of us with oily skin (me), the Original Magic Cream may be too heavy, especially in hot weather. This new product has been designed with the same skin-loving principles as the first Magic Cream, but formulated for oilier skin types. Or for those dealing with humidity - like those of us living by the coast in Australia, warring with 100% humidity conditions.
“As the seasons change, and people’s skin changes, sometimes there’s a need for a lighter-textured moisturiser that still delivers clinically proven results in hydration, skin-smoothing and skin-defence. When I travelled to Asia, so many women and men told me that they adored Magic Cream for winter but needed a fluid-like moisturiser for humid conditions, sweat-inducing summer weather and oil-prone skin," Charlotte said.
So, what is it exactly that makes Charlotte's new Magic Cream magic? In addition to blue light protection, SPF 20 and urban pollution defence, this cream is packed full of high-powered ingredients. It has Replexium, a patented peptide duo, crambe seed oil for light-weight moisture, vitamin E for nourishment and coconut alkanes for a natural, light texture.
One of the reason we're such big fans of Charlotte Tilbury skincare is because her scientific formulations and transparency in testing. Charlotte has been very open about the time she invests in working with her labs to get her products just right. The brand also opts for both consumer and clinical testing, to paint a fuller picture of the results.
In the instance of the new Magic Cream Light, 92% of consumers agree skin looks younger. The clinical test showed that skin appears more elastic by 45%, reduction in appearance of wrinkles by 27% and hydration was increased by 183% (after 1 hour).
In essence, this is a product that certainly has a tick of approval.
