The Egyptian Magic All Purpose Cream became quite the hype some years ago after big celebrities like Madonna, Kate Hudson and Oprah Winfrey started to rave about it. When I was offered the chance to try out the product myself I could not say no. I had to find out whether Egyptian Magic lived up to the hype.
Egyptian Magic is known for its natural ingredients that are supposed to hydrate and condition the skin. The all purpose cream can be used for pretty much anything. You can apply it as a face cream, and eye gel, to relief burn wounds, a shaving balm or as a cream for babies. It even claims that is can help treat eczema. Well, that is a lot to live up to. The cream comes in a jar containing 2 oz. or 59 ml of product. The jar looks rather boring, all white with explanatory writing in red and blue. I do like that it explains how you can use it.
This American product consists of 6 ingredients: honey, beeswax, olive oil, royal jelly, bee pollen and bee propolis. There are no additives, preservatives, fragrances or parabens. I do like the sound of that. You only need a small amount of product, then you rub it in your hands and the product will become oily. I used the Egyptian Magic cream for several months to hydrate my lips because it feels like petroleum jelly. I also decided to use it on my hips where I have stretch marks to see if it would make a difference. Well, over time the stretch marks did not decrease but I did notice my skin became much softer to the touch. So it really hydrates and softens the skin. It does so for my lips as well, but a petroleum jelly works faster but it also feels greasier. Egyptian Magic, though being an oily product, does not feel very greasy, but I still prefer using it at night before going to bed.
I like that the product uses natural ingredients, is so versatile and does wonders for dry skin without feeling overly greasy, but is it really something that is for me? I think not. I can not say I am raving about it either. If it would have really decreased my stretch marks (if something will really ever do that) then yes, I would have surely been very enthusiastic too. For now, it just seems like a great cream to use when one has very dry skin. You just apply it before going to bed and over time your skin will become softer and more hydrated. If that is something you are looking for, then you can find Egyptian Magic via Heavenly Pure for €39,95. Have you heard of Egyptian Magic before? What do you think of the hype?
