The Anti-Aging Face Cream Behind Salma Hayek’s Glowing Skin

Rebecca Carhart

The Golden Globes owned the spotlight last night, and one of our favorite looks of the evening had to be Salma Hayek’s. Everything from her cascading curls to her beaded drop earrings and gorgeous blue and white Gucci dress was flawless, but our favorite part of her red-carpet look had to be her glowing complexion.

According to her makeup artist, Charlotte Tilbury, the secret behind Hayek’s picture-perfect skin is Charlotte’s Magic Cream, from the beauty guru’s eponymous makeup and skincare line. The fast-acting moisturizer is made with a unique blend of shea butter, hyaluronic acid, aloe vera, and vitamins C and E, which work together to hydrate, plump, and brighten skin instantly and create a smooth base to apply makeup.

With details like that, it’s no wonder that the face cream is popular among celebrities and shoppers alike. Nordstrom customers, in particular, are fans of the beloved skincare product and have given it a near-perfect rating. “It really is magic,” raved one shopper. “It makes my skin soft and luminous! I pat it on my skin for the full effect. Great investment for your skin!”

“I have tried dozens of other expensive creams, but this is my favorite,” said another. “It never clogs my pores. It soaks right into my skin, and feels great under my make-up. I can’t live without it. I get so many compliments on my skin, and people ask what I use. If you are looking for a do-it-all face cream that’s light and fragrance-free, this is it!”

At $100 for a 1.7-ounce jar, it is definitely a beauty investment. But if you aren’t ready to splurge on a product you haven’t tried yet, you can shop the beloved cream in two smaller sizes as well. You can score a one-ounce jar for $64 and a .5-ounce jar for just $29.
