|Egyptian Magic All-Purpose Skin Cream|
Product Description: Egyptian Magic All-Purpose Skin Cream "The People's Choice" is new to your market. It is a phenomenal healing balm with legendary powers due to its unique mixture of all natural ingredients derived only from living plants and organisms. Egyptian Magic All-Purpose Skin Cream "The People's Choice" has been on the market since August 1991 with a solid track record, a loyal word of mouth following, and twice the healing power for half the price of conventional skin creams.
Direction: There are two methods that seems to be working well. The first method is to apply it on a dampen face. The second method is to warm the product between your fingers before applying. As stated on the website "Egyptian Magic is a solidified, oil-based product, you will see the best results if you soften it by warming it up before applying it". When you soften it between your fingers, it will turn into oil. You may then apply it wherever desired (yep...almost anywhere!).
Ingredients: Honey, Beeswax, Olive Oil, Royal Jelly, Bee Pollen, Bee Propolis.

My thoughts: Another product review ^^ And this time, it's a natural + organic product that is used by a lot of celebrities. Pretty harsh winter this year, and my skin has been pretty dry. Taking care of only my hands (previous post about Badger Balm for Sensitive Dry Skin), was not enough!
When I first received this product, I was quite skeptical. I read tons of reviews about how wonderful this product is, but I was thinking...how can a product be so good? Especially when it's multipurpose. It claims to treat eczema, works as a moisturizer, a hair mask, an eye cream, highlight for cheekbones, acne, etc and etc. Ouf. The list goes on and on, and I just can't believe that it would work for everything.
So I decided to put this product to a two week test. I don't have eczema, so couldn't test that, but I tested it as an acne treatment + moisturizer + eye cream + scars. Before testing this product, I was having a couple of pimples. I had two huge pimples: One on my forehead, and one on the left side of my bottom lips (the one you guys probably saw from my Hurraw! review picture). So it was a wonderful time for me to try how this product dealt with acne! I also had very dry skin due to winter as well as no eye cream. NO EYE CREAM? ya...I haven't found my natural/organic eye cream yet xD. A week ago before receiving the product, I also bumped my foot on a pointy wood...so I had a big boubou there. What a great moment (coincidence) to test this product eh?
Every night (yes night...I was too scared to use this product in the morning at first), I would take a little amount and dot it on my spots. At the same time, I would moisturize my entire face, including my eyes with Egyptian Magic. I would take around a dime size amount (around the same amount in the picture below), and rub it between my fingers, until it became soft and oily. Then I would gently pad it all around my face + eyes. I had to take a little bit more to rub it on my foot for my boubou.
The moment I rubbed this product on my face, I thought I was going to break out more! It was so oily, and my face was so shiny. I was quite worried there...However, after around a couple of minutes, I saw that the product settled a bit more, and I didn't look like a disco ball no more (phew).
The first day (right after I woke up from first use)...I just couldn't believe how soft my face felt! OMG. It was silky smooth to the point I couldn't stop touching my face! Believe me, this moisturizer is as good as any conventional high end moisturizer. I also used it at the same time as my Badger Balm on my hands, and it definitely gave that little boost of moisture.
Apart from feeling super hydrated and moisturized, I sadly did not see a decrease in my dark circle. But I felt that the the moisture was good enough. I also did not see any changes to my acne scars (redness). Maybe they faded a little bit? But I didn't notice much. Good thing is my two pimples definitely decreased and healed faster than it normally would! It normally takes me about a week to get rid of a pimple. But when I used this, it only took 2-3 days.
My boubou also healed faster! Yay! Now it's totally gone! Forgot to take a picture of that...=(
Overall, this is a really good product. At first, I thought it was too oily, but on the third day of use, I started using it in the morning as eye cream. You just really need a tiny little bit of amount, and you're ready to go! It's good as an eye primer also! But you really have to be careful with the amount you are using...or else it'll be too oily.
Couple downside though...first, the smell. Don't expect it to be smelling all yummy...It does smell quite weird. Smells like...Honey? Beewax? Olive oil? All mixed together? Ya, something like that. But it's not bothersome. The smell fades away after a couple of seconds. Another downside is the price (as usual, I will post the price below)! However, you really only need a little bit. So the jar will last quite a long time. But it was still piggy breaking!
Apparently, it is also good for bug bites! I will definitely try that when summer comes, and give you an update!
