Treat your skin with new launches


As the world opens up, it’s natural that after nearly 18 months of a slower pace of life that you’ll be feeling tired – and sometimes this can show on the face. Help combat this with two new launches from Charlotte Tilbury – the Cryo-Recovery Face Mask and the Cryo-Recovery Eye Serum with ICEAWAKE™ + CAFFEINE COMPLEX + REPLEXIUM. Launching on Namshi, these two new products use a cooling application of supercharged ingredients such as ICEAWAKE™, derived from the soil bacteria of Swiss Glaciers; Swiss Ice Wine, made from grapes frozen on the vine; and a potent, reviving botanical Caffeine Complex, all which help to reawaken the skin.
