Is Charlotte Tilbury Magic Serum Crystal Elixir going to make me look 93% younger? Probably not. I’m actually a big fan and supporter of Magic Eye Rescue and Magic Night Cream but I’ll readily admit I’ve called out the original Magic Cream for being bogus and promising way too much!
As they say with age comes experience….! I’ve found as the years pass I become a lot less gullible when it comes to skincare promises. There are no miracle lotions and potions. We get old, we age, we wrinkle, we get drier, we lose elasticity. There’s really not a lot of miracle, magically products that are going to cure aging. We can prevent and hold off aging though by taking good care of skin but it’s unavoidable that at some point we will visibly see signs of aging. I don’t really think Magic Serum Crystal Elixir will make me look 93% percent younger but it does have some interesting ingredients that may make my skin look a bit brighter and fresher.
With age you’ll also notice you’ll become a lot more educated when purchasing your skincare. For example, several long years ago if you presented a product to me that was “clinically tested” I would be oooooing and ahhhhing over it. WOW! It was clinically tested! That sounds very, very medical and professional! In reality, it just means they round up a bunch of random people and had them test the product and present their results. In my opinion, they only record the positive results as you never really hear about any of the negative results.
“80% of the people that used saw brighter, tighter skin” Yeah, how about that other 20% let’s hear what they have to say!
For Charlotte’s study and clinical study 49% of users experienced firmer skin, 34% experienced a reduction in finer lines, and 122% saw an improvement in elasticity. Shrug. This means nothing to me. I need to try it for myself before deciding.
The formula is water based and contains Polyglutamic Acid which is very promising as Polyglutamic Acid is more hydrating that Hyaluronic Acid. If you want to inject Polyglutamic Acid into your routine I’d recommend The Inkey List Polyglutamic Acid Hydrating Serum it’s $15. Remember, Charlotte’s new magical serum is $80. The formula also contains Vitamin C. The aim of the formula is to hydrate, firm, plump, and brighten.
One of the star ingredients is Niacinamide but lots of the really good ingredients are overshadowed by unnecessary gemstone powders like quartz, ruby, gold, and amethyst powders. I’m not really sure how beneficial those powders are.
Is Charlotte Tilbury Magic Serum Crystal Elixir worth $80 and going to make me appear 93% younger? Probably not. It sounds like a glorified highlighter with some skincare benefits.
This one might be a skip for me.
How about you?
