You guys know I love me some Charlotte Tilbury.
Just like everyone else who has tried it, I’m a big face of the brand’s Magic Cream, however, although I have tried out probably the majority of her beauty products, I haven’t really tried too much from her skincare line.
If you are a fan of their original Magic Cream, but find it to be a little heavy, then you’ll love the Magic Cream Light (C$125). This new formula is perfect for the summer time or hotter climates since it’s lighter on the face but still packs a punch.
This moisturizer is formulated with replexium (for anti-aging), vitamin E, and Citystem (for pollution defense) to deliver up to 24 hours of hydration. It also gives you triple protection against blue light protection (this is always a plus in my books), as well as invisible pollution.
This moisturizer has quickly become my new favourite daytime moisturizer since it’s so light on the skin. It also mattifies and smoothes your skin, meaning it will help against shine. In fact, this moisturizer is suitable for all skin types, including oily skin.
Unlike the original Magic Cream, this is dispensed via a pump, meaning you’ll get the perfect amount every time. I like using this one in the day and then the original formula at night. I will also note though that she does already have a Magic Cream Night version. The original Magic Cream is suitable for both day and night and I do recommend having it on hand for those days where you need little more moisture (maybe for days when you’re out in the sun for too long) or when the weather gets colder.
Pair her new Magic Cream Light with the Magic Eye Rescue (C$65). Using an eye cream day and night is imperative to anti-aging and if you are looking for a new one to try then I think you’ll really love this.
The Magic Eye Rescue helps to combat dark circles for a brighter appearance, as well as brighten, smooth, and reduce the look of winkles. The eye cream is powered by Winter Daphne Stem Cell Extract and saccharide isomerate to hydrate and moisturize, as well as time-released retinol, vitamin C, and a botanical eye complex to reduce the appearance of dark circles.
I really like this eye cream since it glides nicely on the skin and the jar is a little larger than most. I find it really does help with brightening and hydrating the undereye area.
Finally, since my desert island product is a lip balm, when I saw she released a brand-new lip oil, I just had to have it.
The Magic Lip Oil Crystal Elixir (C$45) is a lip serum that is formulated with magic crystals and potent plant extracts for nourished and full lips. With regular use, your lips will feel and look more smoother and hydrated.
You apply this oil via a roller ball, which as you squeeze the tube, it dispenses the product on the ball. It contains hyaluronic acid to hydrate and enhance the lips. In fact, Charlotte Tilbury says that with regular use your lips will appear larger over time.
I have so many lip balms in my collection but I have quickly fell in love with this one. I love the crystal ball applicator, which means it’s so easy to apply this product and it won’t leave your hands messy or melt on a hot day. It also leaves your lips looking shiny, making this the perfect summertime balm to add to your collection.
If you are looking for some new skincare products, I do recommend looking into these goodies from Charlotte Tilbury. I know I talk about skincare a lot on here, but coming from someone who has a million products, I find a lot of goodies that work for me and help with giving me younger-looking skin.

I’ve barely worn makeup since March.
Now that’s officially full-fledged summer and we are in a heat wave no less, the thought of putting makeup onto my face just to have it melt off doesn’t sound all that appealing to me. The one thing I will wear though is a CC cream since it gives me sun protection, skincare benefits, and a relatively good amount of coverage.
CC creams and tinted moisturizers are my jam in the summer time, especially during hot days at the pool or beach. Since we get all sweaty during these days, wearing cream products are a lot more comfortable on the face than powders, so when I saw that Fenty released new cream blushes and bronzers, I had to get my hands on them.
The Fenty Beauty Cheeks Out Freestyle Cream Bronzer (C$42) is a cream bronzer that applies onto the skin for a natural-looking application that will give you a beautiful glow or a stunning contour (or both!). The formula is very lightweight and non-greasy, meaning it will melt onto the skin rather than apply messy or dirty looking.
There are seven shades in this range in a variety of bronze tones, meaning that there is the perfect shade for just about any skin tone. I do find with cream cheek products that they can be rather difficult to apply or even just to figure out how to apply them. I use a brush, but you can just a sponge or your fingers. I will say that application wise, I find powders to be easier to apply, however I do recommend having a cream bronzer in your collection. You can either wear this on its own or use it as a base under a powder product.
I find this cream bronzer to be buildable in colour, meaning that you can’t really overdo it with this one (and if you do, it blends out perfectly). I got the shade 01 Amber, which Fenty says is perfect for fair skin types. Truthfully I like my bronzers to be a little more caramel in colour and find this one to be very dark, but I will admit that it does apply lighter than it looks in the pan.
Pair the new bronzer with one of their new Cheeks Out Freestyle Cream Blushes (C$26), which are cream blushes available in a variety of bright shades.
These blushes are also very lightweight and melt onto the skin for the perfect wash of colour. There are 10 shades to choose from, so it’s easy to pick out the perfect blush for you.
Fenty sent me all 10 shades to try out and again, coming from someone who prefers a powder product, I actually really love these and find them a little easier to apply than the bronzers. I use a brush for these too and although some of the colours look a little too bold for my fair skin, I do find they melt perfectly onto the cheeks with the colour being very buildable.
I love the idea of these, and although Fenty already has creamy blush products, I do think these are a little more dewy on application than their MatchStix blushes. I also find the shade range to be very vast and love that there are 10 colours to choose from.
Both the cream bronzer and blushes are sweat- and water-resistant and apply without feeling sticky or greasy. In fact they settle onto the skin nicely and I found they don’t budge once applied.
Overall, I highly recommend picking up a shade or two of these products. I would recommend the blush over the bronzer a little more since I feel like it’s easier to apply and you can literally wear these everyday, even on bare skin since they give you such a beautiful natural-looking flush.
Once again, this is a winner from Fenty. I seriously think they can do no wrong with their products.

When it comes to skincare brands, I have a lot of favourites. One of those is definitely Fresh.
I’ve tried my fair share of products from the brand and consistently find that they work for my skin. Right now I’m currently using a few different skincare goodies from the brand and truthfully, my skin is just loving every minute of it. I also love that the brand is a clean one and they don’t include any parabens, MIT/MCI, formaldehyde and formaldehyde donors, BHA, phthalates, silicons D4 and D6, hydroquinone, triclosan, and triclocarban.
If you are looking into trying some products from the brand but don’t know where to start, here are three products I’m currently loving and recommend.
Fresh Soy Makeup Removing Face Wash
If you aren’t familiar with Fresh’s Soy Makeup Removing Face Wash (C$49/150ml) then you’re probably living under a rock.
I’m just kidding, but in all seriousness, this face wash is a cult classic, and for good reason. Suitable for all skin types, it targets dryness, dullness, uneven texture, loss of firmness and elasticity. It’s a lightweight gel that gently removes makeup, impurities, and tones for clean and balanced skin.
The pH-balanced formula is very gentle on the skin and thoroughly cleans your face while also nourishing it. Some star ingredients include amino acid-rich soy proteins to help maintain skin elasticity and suppleness; cucumber extract to aid in soothing skin; and rosewater to calm and balance.
I will say, $49 for this cleanser is a little steep, but I really do love it and there is a reason why it is so popular. Anyone can use it and it really makes your skin radiant. It’s the perfect cleanser to use morning and night to clean your skin.
Fresh Rose Petal-Soft Deep Hydration Lip Balm
Dry lips? Try out Fresh’s Rose Petal-Soft Deep Hydration Lip Balm (C$32).
Housed in a jar, this hydrating and soft lip balm gently conditions and helps to nourish dry and flaky lips.
Open up the jar to reveal a rose-scented balm that contains rose flower oil to moisturize and soothe dry lips; a blend of emollient oils to visibly soften and moisturize; as well as vitamin e to protect.
You can pair this with their Sugar Lip Polish for the ultimate in lip self care.
With regular use you’ll find that this balm will also help with your lips’ texture, making them look soft and kissable.
Fresh Black Tea Corset Cream Firming Moisturizer
I recently ran out of my beloved Neostrata Firming Neck Cream, so when I saw I had the Fresh Black Tea Corset Cream Firming Moisturizer (C$125) laying around, I thought it would be a good alternative to try.
This firming cream for the face and neck is suitable for normal, dry, combination, and oily skin, and helps to diminish fine lines and wrinkles, dryness, and loss of firmness and elasticity. It contains their black tea complex, goji fruit extract, and a firming peptide to help lift and tighten skin, as well as improve elasticity for younger-looking skin.
If your main skincare concern includes fine lines and wrinkles, dryness, and a loss of firmness and elasticity, then I think you’ll really love this moisturizer.
Another product I highly recommend you try out is their Black Tea Kombucha Facial Treatment Essence, which I love (I’m already on my second bottle!). I have blogged about this product before, which you can read here.
If you are looking for a clean beauty brand and haven’t tried Fresh yet, then you need to get your hands (or rather, skin) on some products. These three are great ones to try out and will really help nourish your skin.
