If you believe the press surrounding this product then this is the answer to all your skincare needs. As well as rejuvenating and repairing the skin, Egyptian Magic, a multi purpose oil based cream, which looks remarkably similar to vaseline, is also meant to heal and minimise the effects of scars, burns, stretch marks, insect bites, rashes and skin conditions. You can even use it as a make up remover!
I first heard read about this product on a U.S beauty blog, about a year ago. It's not new, it's been around for a hot minute but when I heard last month that it had officially launched in the UK it aroused my interest again.
In egyptian Magic, the super moisturising benefits of olive oil are combined with the healing powers of bees wax and honey which are full of antioxidants to protect the skin. The other ingredients are royal jelly, bee pollen and bee propolis. All six ingredients are 100% natural which I'm sure will be music to the ears of many.
This has supposedly taken the celebrity world by storm with Madonna and Juliette Lewis being named as fans (when when brands realise that the vast majority of consumers don't care if a movie star/singer/*insert non-entity* uses their product and that it won't necessarily influence our decision to purchase it). Although it sounds almost too good to be true (healing third degree burns? Really??), I'd still like to try it out for myself at some point and see what all the fuss is about.
For those of you who've already tapped into the hype that surrounds Egyptian Magic and have had a chance to try it, please let me know what your thoughts are on it. A skincare must have? Or is it best left to float down the River Nile?
