Is there anything better than climbing into bed at the end of a long day and being cosseted by a cozy blanket and crisp, clean sheets? Not really, at least in my book. I also find that my nighttime skincare regimen helps me unwind as bedtime approaches, but most nights I do it out of age-fighting necessity as opposed to a treat. But when I recently tried a sample of Charlotte Tilbury’s Magic Night Rescue Cream, I learned that these two worlds can indeed collide.
With a rich, balm-like consistency, this night treatment is an indulgent way to end the day—and give your skin a major boost of youth. Formulated with anti-aging staples like retinol, peptides and antioxidants plus more novel ingredients such as Winter Daphne Stem Cell Extract, Red Algae Marigel, olus oil and frangipani, your skin actually looks like it had a full night’s sleep before you even hit the hay. And as for how your skin feels after just one use… Think so incredibly smooth, soft and plump that you might be tempted to throw on a touch of makeup and go out so you can show it off.
I also sampled the Magic Eye Rescue in the same sesh, and this didn’t disappoint either. With a similar formula and consistency as the night cream, it instantly brightened my entire eye are and helped improve my undereye bags, dark circles and crow’s feet—as if my hellish day never happened.
So if you’re looking to add a little “magic” to your nighttime skincare regimen (and treat yourself as you treat your skin), these products fit the bill!
