Dupes For Charlotte Tilbury’s Magic Serum Crystal Elixir

These dupes are based on the ingredient lists because I believe that’s the best way to find dupes, when there are SO many products out there.

They each have over 40% match!

We’re looking for dupes to this serum from Charlotte Tilbury!

So, let get into them.

Ole Henricksen Truth Serum

Match – 48%

Like Charlotte Tilbury’s Magic Serum, notable ingredients in this include; Vitamin C, Vitamin E, Hyaluronic Acid. However, it does not contain niacinamide, which the CT one does.

Their benefits are very similar. They both help with treating dark spots, dry skin and redness. They can also target skin texture, large pores and are anti-ageing. The CT serum is also useful for those with acne.

In terms of side effects the CT Magic Serum is more likely to cause irritation and make eczema worse.

Naturium Vitamin C Complex

Match – 47%

This one has more Vitamin C in it but less exfoliating properties. It also contains HA and Vitamin E.

The Naturium Complex is better at treating dark spots, skin brighting and reducing redness. However, the CT serum trumps it at treating large pores and acne.

Side effects are more likely with the CT serum. These include dry skin, irritation and worsening rosacea.

Naturium Vitamin C Super Serum Plus

Match – 46%

This one is bursting full of actives. It has BHA’s as well as AHA’s. Also, it has all the notable ingredients that the previous ones has; HA, Vitamin C + E, Niacinamide AND retinoids.

It’s benefits list is long. It’s good for dry and oily skin (remember they are both caused by dehydration) and has plenty of ingredients treat; redness, skin texture, large pores, dark spots, acne.

The Naturium Super Serum also treats scars and can brighten the skin.

However, it is more likely to cause irritation to the skin but won’t make rosacea worse.
