Charlotte Tilbury Wonder Glow

    February 4, 2019

    If one beauty product got me through a horrible January then it was Charlotte Tilbury Wonder Glow Instant Soft Focus Beauty Flash (£38.50). Talk about a beauty pick-me-up … Charlotte Tilbury Wonder Glow made me look human on days when I was feeling utterly eeeuch due to a heavy head cold and/or a bout of menstrual misery.

    If the idea of a “dewy” look strikes fear into your heart, you’re not alone. As someone who has always been prone to a shiny T-zone, I usually proceed with caution when it comes to primers and foundations which promise a dewy look or a glow. But some of the more recent products on the market strike just the right note, dew-wise, and a little of this effect can go a long way to enhancing older skin.

    Charlotte Tilbury Wonder Glow is a terrific example of a primer which is subtle but very effective indeed. Its formula straddles the skincare and make-up categories thanks to its combination of ingredients which play with the light and provide a soft-focus effect, and an anti-ageing complex which stimulates collagen to promote elasticity in the skin.

    Not only does Charlotte Tilbury Wonder Glow make the skin look radiant and healthy but it’s also quite soothing when it’s applied, and it helps make-up to last longer. Can you tell I love it? It’s definitely earned its place in my daily routine this winter!
