Egyptian Magic cream review:
I’ve been using Egyptian Magic Cream since 2010 when I started coming across people hyping it up on YouTube, Beauty & Fashion websites and beauty blogs! I just had to see what all the fuss was about!
The main hype about Egyptian Magic is the that, allegedly, high profile celebrities were swearing by it. Celebrities like Madonna, Karolina Kurkova, Eva Mendes, Kate Hudson, Virgina Madsen and Oprah. How true this is…I don’t know!
My Experience with Egyptian Magic:
My first thoughts of Egyptian Magic was that it was just a very well marketed product…you know one of these new crazes that everyone wants to be a part of because celebrities are using it! I thought “so what if Madonna uses it?” she also probably uses cosmetic surgery and botox (I’m just saying!) That’s why her skin looks so “young” for her age. I was fed up of hearing about this cream, but also interested in finding out what it actually contains that is so awesome!
I was pleasantly surprised to find that Egyptian Magic it contains 100% natural ingredients.
That’s not something you often find in these cleverly marketed skin products that are purchased by the wealthy.
Check this out…the ingredients in Egyptian Magic are:
Olive Oil: Well for its uses as a natural eczema remedy. It’s easily absorbed by the skin to help moisturize and soften dry/irritated eczema skin. It also contains vitamin E.
Beeswax: emollient and locks in moisture. It creates a protective coat over the skin that protects it from irritants and the environment. It softens the skin and contains anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial properties.
Honey: Also has anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties.
Bee Pollen: provides relief for skin disorders and improves skin appearance.
Royal Jelly: This substance is produced to feed the queen bee. It contains vitamins B5 & B6 as well as vitamins A, C, D and E as well as containing anti-aging properties.
Bee Propolis: Contains antibiotic properties and is commonly used to heal cuts and other skin irritations.
And that’s it!! Oh wait I forgot to mention the “divine love” that they also included in the ingredients description (PS: They have now removed that from the ingredient list!)
So far so good, right? (I’m enjoying writing this Egyptian Magic cream review, can you tell by my excitement?).
My interest in Egyptian Magic cream grew and I was dying to try it out! At the time, I couldn’t find it in the shops as it didn’t seem to have caught up here in the UK and I was even struggling to find it online! A close friend of mine then told me she had heard of it and purchased it online. I told her I would wait until she tries it out so she can give me her thoughts.
Her feedback wasn’t too positive at first, but after she had been using it for a while, she admitted she had fallen IN LOVE with it! Reading positive feedback online is one thing, but hearing it from a close friend, I was totally convinced that this cream really was “magic” and thought “Now I HAVE TO buy it!”.
The website I purchased Egyptian Magic from is called LoveLula. It costs £28.50 for a big 118ml tub. Like I mentioned before, I did think it was quite pricy, but you do get a good amount that will last you quite a long time. And the best thing about Egyptian Magic, apart from it being natural, is that it has multiple uses. You can use it anywhere on your body and I’ve read that some girls use it on their hair if they have dry hair.
Egyptian Magic Cream Review – My Final Thoughts
Yes it’s helped my eczema skin in that it’s extremely moisturizing. It can also be used for chapped/rough skin, strengthen cuticles, for chapped lips, stretch marks, burns, scares and a few other purposes.
I use it on my face as a moisturizer and on the rest of my body after showering. It’s not too light that it doesn’t provide enough moisture, nor is it too heavy that it clogs up the pours. It’s safe to use on the face…I can say that with conviction since the skin on my face is so sensitive…almost everything irritates it!
I’ve read a few Egyptian Magic cream reviews by people describing the texture as being like that of Vaseline. I don’t use Vaseline because it’s mainly petroleum which is heavy and clogs up pores, so I’m not sure whether the textures are similar! I can say that it’s a yellowish see through balm like substance that turns into an oil when rubbed between the fingers. It’s hard in cold weather but starts melting at body temperature.
Egyptian Magic can be used as a substitute to baby oil. Mineral oil might irritate baby eczema so Egyptian Magic can be used as a moisturizer to reduce the effect of baby eczema. However some people are allergic to bees so I would recommend a patch test on a small patch of the skin for 24 hours to see whether or not a rash develops suggesting an allergy.
I have very oily hair, but if you have dry hair, or at least dry ends then you can also use Egyptian magic on the ends to help prevent those dreaded split ends.
