Balms are what you buy at the drugstore when you have dry skin, chapped lips or a diaper rash (in which case, your mom is probably buying it for you)—they’re rarely described as luxurious. But Charlotte Tilbury’s Multi-Miracle Glow is not only that (just look at the rose gold lucite jar), it’s wildly effective, too. The rich cream-to-oil balm contains a blend of antioxidant oils (rosehip, sea buckthorn, cranberry, camellia) and vitamins A, C and E to do just about everything you’d ask of your skin care. Anti-aging? Check. Intensely moisturizing? Yep. Brightening? Of course. You can use it as a cleanser to gently remove every trace of makeup, as an overnight regenerating mask and as a healing treatment for rough heels, elbows and cuticles. I love it for soothing sunburns, razor burn, and all general itchy-red-irritated patches almost instantly.
