Winter is the absolute worst for dry skin, but with a little help from Charlotte Tilbury, you’ll be able to hydrate even the thirstiest skin.
Having dry skin can be a challenge when you’re looking for make up and skincare. With all the moisturisers, cleansers, and retinol products out there, it can get overwhelming.
The wrong toner or foundation can trigger itchiness, rough patches, and flaking, so knowing the right brands or products will definitely help you avoid such issues.
The brand has won over 300 global beauty awards for their innovative, high-performing formulas. Charlotte Tilbury, legendary makeup artist and founder, has also put a lot of emphasis on inclusivity in her product lines.
The beauty brand offers an exceptional line of skincare and makeup products that enhances that complexion for different skin tones and types.
If you scroll through their website, you’ll find articles from the team catered to different skin types. You can read their skin routine for dry skin here, which includes some of their best hydrating products.
Before making a purchase, I scoured countless reviews and vlogs from other skincare and makeup aficionados to see if Charlotte Tilbury products are well-worth the hype – and more specifically, if they are good for dry skin.
So here are some of their recommendations. They’re a little pricey, but investing in the right products will reap long-term benefits.
Charlotte Tilbury’s Magic Cream

This is one of the brand’s best selling moisturisers. CT claims its hydrating formula, which includes aloe vera and Hyaluronic Acid, will ‘transform your tired, thirsty skin.’
After application it can make the skin feel smooth and plump. But the scent-heavy and creamy consistency of the product might be too overwhelming for oily and acne-prone skin types.
Magic Eye Rescue

A lot of Redditors are wary about products that has the word ‘magic’ in them, but this luxurious eye cream does what it says on the tin.
It’s clinically proven to target problematic eye areas-especially dryness.
Magic Serum Crystal Elixir

Beauty vlogger Stephanie Marie shared her experience using the product for 80 days and admits that CT’s claims can overhype what the product actually does, but she loves the immediate effects of the serum.
Stephanie mentioned that her skin feels more hydrated and plump after using it, which is perfect for dry skin types. The Evening Standar’s fashion and beauty team also reviewed the Magic Serum Elixir.
Many of their reviews echo Stephanie’s, from the lightweight consistency that doesn’t overwhelm the skin to its hydrating effects.

In this Reddit Thread, the Airbrush Flawless Foundation was a popular choice for people with dry skin. The feather-light texture offers full coverave and a natural matte finish without any cakey texture.
Compared to other foundations, CT’s formula includes hydrating and moisturizing ingredients.

The Hollywood Flawless Filter trended on TikTok for a reason. A lot of Reddit users in multiple threads about CT and dry skin products, mention that this filter is truly worth the hype.
