~ Charlotte’s MAGIC CREAM Treat & Transform Moisturizer NOW Available.

You might be asking who is Charlotte? We're not talking about Charlotte's Web, but the infamous Charlotte Tiibury, and if you don't know whom she is no worries, that's why you have me to report these insider scoops. Charlotte is something of a legend in the beauty industry, credited for being the creator of many reputable trends that happen backstage in addition to beautifying the faces of such celebrities as Kate Moss, Victoria Beckham, Penelope Cruz and Rihanna. Being headquartered in the UK, many Brits are well familiar with her name as a staple in the industry, similarly the way Kevin Aucoin is known here. BUT, there is one thing that has always been associated with Charlotte, and that is the signature look she creates is always radiant, dewy and glowing and I mean G-L-O-W-I-N-G.

Charlotte's full line launched here in the states this month. A long anticipated premier since its debut overseas last year. If you were to buy just ONE product, Charlotte’s Magic Cream SPF15 ($95), is a must. It’s flying off the shelves in the UK, and had a waiting list in the U.S. before this month's launch.

Why the demand? Over the past 20 years, Charlotte has been mixing her own 'magical skin cream', appropriately called Charlotte's Magic Cream, which she has been using backstage and on her clients for ions. Models/Celebrities became familiar with this 'cream' as a miracle for their skin. Tired looking runway skin, became 'alive', dry, dehydrated skin became glowing and the demand for this cream in a pot started to become the talk of the trade. So what is it? Well, for starters, Charlotte herself created it years ago. It is a secret mix of patented anti-age ingredients, a hyaluronic acid booster and floral extracts (rose hip oil and water) that lift and transform tired skin in an instant! I've read that your skin will react like it was " a wilting flower that’s just been watered'---- within minutes it is invigorated and comes back to life. Intrigued yet? Well, I totally was and since my travels didn't take me to the UK, I patiently awaited its launch here.

One try, and I am hooked! If you want matte skin, this cream is not for you. This cream is only intended for those who have dehydrated skin or those who like that glowy, dewiness. Even after you apply your foundation or tint over Charlotte's Magic Cream, you are still left with an amazing glow. I even apply a light layer (I pat it on) as an afternoon pick-up!

Beauty, to me, is about being comfortable in your own skin.
