COLLECTIONS FOR THE HOLIDAYS 2015 EDIT || CHARLOTTE TILBURY

Over the last week a lot of make-up product sets have been featured on my blog as part of my 'Collections for the Holidays' edit. Since today is the final day of this 'series', I wanted to include something a little different, that is still beauty related just to give the week some variety and show you what other sorts of Limited Edition sets you can pick up for the holidays. 
A huge range of different brands release holiday sets, including hair brands, nail brands, make-up brands, skincare brands...The list goes on! As this page is a very make-up based place to visit, I wanted to keep the majority of the week focused on that, but for my readers who want a bit more, I thought I would finish off by featuring some Skincare as well. 
Looking after your skin and having a good skincare regime is the first step to achieving flawless looking make-up. Not only does your skin effect the way your make-up looks, but it also changes the way in which make-up applies to your face and also how it wears throughout the day..so the pair go hand in hand!

Charlotte Tilbury is a very luxurious brand that specialises in make-up and skincare products, fit for the red carpet! If you have been reading my blog for a while now you will know that I am obsessed with the make-up range that they offer..everything is such amazing quality, the packaging is beautiful and I have never had a bad experience with anything I have tried from there. 
For quite some time now I have been wanting to expand my Charlotte Tilbury collection, and to do this I wanted to try out some items from the skincare range that they have available. I hear nothing but amazing reviews about the skincare products and if their make-up is anything to go buy, then I knew for sure that I would not be disappointed! 
I will be honest, the main thing that always put me off finalising my skincare purchases was the pricing..as I said this is a very luxurious brand with outstanding quality products, and the price tag definetely reflects that! However, you only get one skin in your lifetime, and if you want to protect it and keep it looking healthy and youthful for as long as you possibly can, investing in skincare will be the best thing you could choose to do! Also, a lot of people think that they need to be buying the most expensive make-up to achieve the best overall make-up results (don't get me wrong, in some cases this does help), but in reality it actually starts with skincare and I cannot stress the impotance of this enough. If you are going to put money into something, choose skincare and you will see the difference it can make! 

'The Gift Of Red Carpet Skin' is a gift set which was released by Charlotte Tilbury earlier this year for the holidays. The set includes 6 deluxe-sized products from the skincare range, that Charlotte Tilbury uses herself on the her models and actresses to get that red carpet ready, flawless glowing skin. 

The 6 products included in the set are :
  • TAKE IT ALL OFF | 15ml travel bottle
  • GODDESS SKIN CLAY MASK | 15ml travel tube
  • MULTI-MIRACLE GLOW | 15ml travel tube
  • MAGIC CREAM | 15ml travel pot
  • WONDERGLOW | 15ml travel tube
  • SUPERMODEL BODY | 15ml travel tube
This is the perfect set if you are new to the Charlotte Tilbury skincare range, as it gives the opportunity to try out a variety of the different products (at a great discounted price), to see what works best for you and you can then decide which products you would like to go and purchase full sized bottles of.

The first item you get is the 'Take It All Off' make-up remover, which is an oil-rich, two-toned cleanser that will remove everything in just one swipe..even the hardest to shift make-up. You cannot really tell on the picture, but it does have clear fluid filled up to the top, and this is one of those make-up removers that you need to shake up before you use it, so the oil mixes in with the remover. I love gentle, yet powerful eye make-up removers like this one, because it means you do not have to rub and pull on the sensitive skin in that area to get everything off, it all just wipes off with ease. 

Next up is a product which was released more recently in the skincare range and it is the 'Goddess Skin Clay Mask'. This mask is packed with Bio-Nymph Peptide, Mediterranean Clay and Sweet Almond Oil, all of which will help your skin become smoother, plumper and more glowy. With sufferimg from dehydrated skin that can get fairly dry in the winter, I like to try and use a face mask atleast once a week to try and restore some moisture. After hearing nothing buy great reviews, I am excited to try this clay mask out to see if it helps my skin at all. 

The 'Multi-Miracle Glow' is a 3-in-1 skin remedy product that will help to achieve baby soft skin. It is a 'deep cleansing face balm' with anti-wrinkle benefits, a 'regenerating mask' with an overnight facial finish and it is also a 'go-anywhere sos remedy' that can be used on cuticles, elbow, heels and shins to cheat your way to the body of an angel..it is a miracle worker! 
It has a cream balm like texture which transforms into an oil as soon as it touches the skin and it is great for taking off any make-up. Some of its ingredients include; sea buckthorn seed oil, cranberry seed oil, extracts of frangipani flower, rose hip, camellia oil and vitamins A, C and E, which all work together perfectly to help moisturise, purify, regenerate, smooth wrinkles and bring the skins complexion back to life!

When I saw that Charlotte Tilbury's famous 'Magic Cream' was apart of this set, I bought it straight away..this is definitly the product I am most excited about having to try out! I have wanted to try this particular product for so long now because it claims that no matter how dehydrated your skin is looking, this cream will make your skin look flooded with moisture and give off the appearance of a glowing complexion..sounds perfect to me!
The Magic Cream is a secret mix of patented anti-age ingredients, a hyaluronic acid booster plus floral extracts that lift and transform tired looking skin in an instant. Also, to make this an incredible skin protector product, it includes SPF 15 and anti-UVA fillers, to fight off year-round ageing effects. 

Until I got this set, the only product I had tried from the Charlotte Tilbury skincare line was 'Wonder Glow', and I absolutely love this! It is an illuminating primer that gives a 'lit from within' look to the skin. The cream has a gold tint, that is not overly shimmery and it just offers a nice glow to the skin. There are three different ways in which this product can be used to achieve different, stunning finishes. The first way is using it as a primer, under foundation, to give luminosity to the skin - this is my favourite way personally. The second way is to apply it over foundation, or mix it in with your foundation to get an overall radient, flawless finish. Or lastly, for those days when you feel like you do not need to wear foundation, just apply wonder glow on its own, after Charlottes Magic Cream for an all over lasting glow. 

Last but certainly not least, you have 'Super Model Body'. This is a body illuminator that gives a beautiful golden glow to the skin and I can imagine it being a must have product for the summer time! To mimic a slimmer looking figure, simply apply this super model body cream down the centre of your legs and arms to create an illusion of a leaner, longer limbs..It is like contouring but for your body! 
Ladies, this is finally our time to cheat ourselves to getting that Victoria Secret model body without the workouts or the deprivation of carbs! 

I hope you guys have all liked having some skincare pieces shared on my blog. Rather than having an entire week talking about make-up palettes, I thought I would mix it up ever so slightly! Have any of you used some of these products from the Charlotte Tilbury skincare range? Which are your favourites? I would love to know your recommendations! 
And that is it guys, I cannot believe that it is the end of my 'Collections for the Holidays' week already! Please let me know your thoughts on this little 'series', I would love to know if you have enjoyed it and if you have found it helpful in anyway! 

Thank you all so much for reading. Do not forget to follow me on Bloglovin' to make sure you do not miss out on any future posts, and in that case, I will speak to you soon.

Lots of Love
