Charlotte Tilbury Magic Cream Light review

Charlotte Tilbury Magic Cream Light: There is now a lighter lotion version of the bestselling Magic Cream moisturiser

16th June 2020 | Author: Victoria Woollaston-Webber

Charlotte Tilbury has been relentless with launches recently – and we’re here for it (even if our bank balance isn’t!)

Following the release of her Magic Serum Crystal Elixir and Lip Oil, and her Airbrush Bronzer, Air-Brush and Desert Haze Luxury palette,  she has now released something we’ve wanted for a long time – Magic Cream Light. 

Magic Cream takes the top spot in our best moisturiser list, yet as we note in that round-up, it has a thick consistency. Once it’s applied, it starts to melt into the skin so this isn’t a huge problem – and actually helps create a great base for makeup – but it does take a little more massaging than other formulations to be fully absorbed. 

Magic Cream Light is based on similar ingredients as this number-one, bestselling original Magic Cream, but comes in a much lighter, lotion-like formula. Something that becomes instantly clear as soon as you see it comes in a bottle with a pump dispenser, rather than in the pot with a lid.

Charlotte Tilbury’s Magic Cream Light is on sale now via Charlottetilbury.com and a 50ml bottle costs £75.

Charlotte Tilbury currently sells her Magic Cream in both 30ml and 50ml pots priced at £49 and £75 respectively, but there doesn’t (yet) appear to be a 30ml version of the Magic Light Cream. 

Ingredients-wise, the Magic Cream Light comes with a rating of SPF20, up from SPF 15 in the Magic Cream, and contains:

Results from a user trial, involving 211 people, found that 92% agreed their skin looked younger after using the Magic Cream Light for four weeks, while 98% said it made their skin feel nourished and hydrated.

In follow-up clinical tests, on 32 people, found that the cream boost hydration by 183% in one hour and defends against pollution, UVA and UVB rays. 

“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,” explained Charlotte Tilbury. 

“This new formula of my iconic award-winning Magic Cream has a light, lotion-like texture that leaves your skin feeling dewy and hydrated with a delicate veil of glow!

“When I traveled 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.

“I have worked with some of the world’s leading scientists, chemists and dermatologists to formulate this ground-breaking formula with clinically proven ingredients to give everyone, everywhere magic skin!”

Magic Cream Light will go on sale more widely from 25 June – just in time for summer.
