Test Drive your Cosmetics

Hey Dolls,

It’s been a while! wish there was more time in the day, writing up business plan, work, the twins and figuring out what new direction the blog is going! Anyway this post is not about that! However I will get back to that in more detail…Promise. Will try keep this post short and sweet.

Clients, girlfriends and family members always ask me, Christelle what’s a good eye cream or foundation etc etc. I obviously recommend what i know and I’ve tried, but that does not necessarily mean that it is right for their needs. I’ve always keep in mind if I’m going to spend money on good skin care, foundation or concealer….the list keeps going! Always ask for samples see if it works for you, see how you like it! There is nothing worst than spending £50 on a eye cream, for it to be siting in the back of your bathroom shelf because it is not working for you!!! We have all been there trust me, I know! It can be a little embarrassing to ask for samples….but don’t be, you have every right to do so.

I Asked for Charlotte Tilbury Magic Foundation samples, used it…Loved it! Bought IT!

Now kind of addicted to her products, I’m currently sampling her skincare range ‘The Magic Skin Trilogy‘.  The Magic Night Cream and The Magic Eye Rescue, haven’t tried The Magic Cream yet, however it is  an award-wining product! The samples I’m using so far so good!

The Magic Night Cream, has 8 de-ageing ingredients; Time-Released Retinol Molecules, Winter Daphne Stem Cells Extract, Frangipani, Vitamin E, Bionymph Peptide, Second Skin Red Algae Marigel, Castor Seed Oil is the healing properties in this cream and the last ingredient is Olus Oil.  It is always better to start using anti-ageing creams now to prevent the natural ageing process and avoid botox! I use a little, its an elixir so you do not need use a lot the texture is rich but velvety. My skin feels amazing in the morning, plump and smooth. I’m a firm believer of night creams and this one is 10/10.

The Magic Eye Rescue, contains 6 of the same ingredients instead of the Castor Seed Oil and Olus Oil; It contains Botanical Eye Contour Complex and Saccharide Isomerate. The Magic Eye Cream reduces the appearance of puffiness and dark circles, meant to smooth fine lines and instantly tightens and refreshes the skin. Well as you know the skin around your eyes is the thinest, so I apply very little around my eyes, you should always gently tap around the eyes not rub it! Because I used so little from my sample it lasted me a week and the appearance of my dark circles have reduced…I hardly use concealer around my eyes now! I will be making a trip to the nearest Charlotte Tilbury haul on pay day!!
