Having complicated skin, mostly dry then sometimes greasy and also acne prone, finding moisturisers is not an easy task for me. A friend told me about this ‘cream’ years ago and I must admit I was dubious at first. Egyptian Magic Cream sounds so gimmicky doesn’t it? But when I looked at the ingredients and they consisted of 6 things only: olive oil, beeswax, honey, bee pollen, royal jelly and propolis extract, I knew trying it wouldn’t do any harm.
Egyptian Magic Cream has been featured in all the beauty mags and is apparently used by top models and celebs, but is it any good?
I’m on my second tub and I must say it is a quality product especially if you have dry skin. The consistency is like vaseline and you’re supposed to rub a bit into your palm until it turns into oil, and then apply it. It hasn’t helped or hindered how many spots I get but it definitely leaves skin soft and supple. It also lasts ages, almost a year as you only need to apply a small amount. I haven’t needed to buy any other moisturiser for my face.
If you’re looking for a natural moisturiser then this is for you. It is handmade, not tested on animals, contains no fragrance, parabens or chemicals.
Egyptian Magic Cream can be bought from Selfridges, Liberty and Boots, and many online sellers but avoid Amazon and Ebay as there are many fakes out there. Check out the website for the more information about this cream.
Score: 8/10 – can be a bit greasy for the summer time.
Cost: £23-£30 for a 4oz tub.
