Charlotte Tilbury Magic Eye Rescue Eye Cream ($60) is one of my holy grail eye creams. I absolutely love it.
A few months ago I purchased the Charlotte Tilbury The Magic Skin Trilogy which included full sizes of Charlotte Tilbury Magic Cream, Charlotte Tilbury Magic Night Cream, and Charlotte Tilbury Magic Eye Rescue.
I admit I had my doubts about Magic Cream and as much as I love Night Magic Cream I think it is quite expensive for what you get. I do not mind paying the cheaper $60 price for Magic Eye Rescue Eye Cream. I’m also vaguely surprised it isn’t more expensive!
Charlotte Tilbury Magic Eye Rescue is sadly not going to change your finer lines anytime soon since the jar packaging will render it useless quite quickly. It will however, provide plenty of moisture under your eyes so your finer lines will look less visible and better. Because, hey, we all know that dryness is the biggest contributing factor to finer lines looking worst than they actually are!
Apparently this contains Winter Daphne Stem Cell Extract, Second Skin Red Algae Marigel, and host of other botanicals along with soy and yeast peptides. According to the brand it’ll treat finer lines as well as dark circles and puffiness while firming and smoothing the skin under your eyes as well as stimulating collagen. I’ve been using it a few months now and here is what I did notice when using it daily and nightly for that time. I do believe I seen a big difference under my eyes for sure. Not only do my finer lines look less visible but I also feel like the skin under my eyes is retaining moisture for a good deal longer (thus my finer lines aren’t as prominent as they once were).
This formula is highly moisturizing and it retains moisture very, very well. I wouldn’t say it dealt well with puffiness or even dark circles but it did a great job providing intense moisture to my dry under eyes and for that alone it is worth picking up.
This is a rich creamy, balm-y like texture that absorbs easily under eyes. It does have a rose fragrance which might present a problem for sensitive users so keep that in mind prior to a purchase. I admit to being a little too overly generous with application but a little does go a very long way. It wears very well under concealer and makeup especially if you have issues with your concealer creasing or caking. This will allow a smoother, easier glide during concealer application.
I just can’t express how incredibly moisturizing this formula is. As someone who has been endlessly searching for a super hydrating eye cream I can safely say outside of my beloved Hydroshield, Charlotte Tilbury Magic Eye Rescue is one of the most hydrating formulas you’ll find on the market today.
There are no miracles to be had here but there is plenty of moisture. If you have drier eyes I have a feeling you’ll adore Charlotte Tilbury Magic Eye Rescue. I can’t recommend it enough for that reason alone.
