I was lucky enough to be given Charlotte Tilbury's Magic Cream as a gift recently so if you've been thinking about splurging on this coveted SPF15 formula by one of the leading make up artists in the world, this review will be a good place to start.

I'll start by saying that I would *never* usually spend this amount of money on a skincare product as £70 is super steep but it did feel like a real luxury to be given such a high-end product that I wouldn't usually buy myself. 

Let's start with the packaging. As with all of Charlotte Tilbury's products, they have a glamorous look and feel, usually finished with rose gold. This 50ml product comes in a clear faceted jar and has a rose gold lid. I don't dislike the packaging as it's perfect for sitting pretty on any dressing table but what I do object to is the amount of plastic around the actual moisturiser, it feels like £70 is an awful lot for a fairly small amount of product.
The actual moisturiser itself is lovely. I use this product very sparingly and tend to use it at the weekend as opposed to when I'm working everyday throughout the week as I want this product to last as long as possible! A small amount on the end of my finger goes a long way to cover the whole face and neck area and it does leave skin feeling soft and moisturised. The cream also has a slightly pearlescent finish to give skin a pretty glow and paired with Charlotte Tilbury's Magic Foundation this moisturiser acts as the perfect foundation primer. 

The Rosehip oil used in the ingredients does have a lasting scent once the cream is applied but this doesn't bother me, I like the scent as it's fresh and delicate. However, if you're not fan of 'fragranced' moisturisers and prefer to have a more neutrally scented moisturiser this may not be the right product for you.

This product has earned a huge reputation for it's anti-aging properties but I'm not entirely sure I've seen the benefits of this as yet, but hopefully I will over time as I probably haven't been using the product often enough or long enough to see a huge difference straight away.

As I would suggest with any beauty product, it is worth picking up a sample at your local Charlotte Tilbury counter and trying it for yourself before you invest. I do thoroughly enjoy using this product and I would definitely consider buying this product again, but the hefty price tag will always weigh on my mind when I'm comparing this to other moisturisers out there. Overall though, it's a real luxury treat and my face looks brighter and happier for it so I'll enjoy it for as long as I can!
