“Ancient Egyptian folklore recalls a miraculous skin cream, a secret of the great sages, mystics, magicians and healers, used to maintain radiant, healthy, smooth and glowing skin.”
It’s not the first time on our blog that I’m talking about the miracles that Egyptian Magic works on the skin. It goes without saying that anything given to us by Mother Nature herself is the healthiest, purest and most environmentally friendly way of beautifying ourselves. Today I’m going to be talking to you all about the wonders of Egyptian Magic and how over the past few months it has improved the evenness and healthy glow of my complexion.
Ever since my teenage years I really feel like I’ve been at war with my skin. Being Irish I suffer a lot from redness and the cold climate always gave me incredibly dry skin even on top of having cystic acne. At 18 my acne was so bad that I ended up on Accutane but to no real avail as my skin is still prone to hormonal flareups even to this day at 22.
To sum up my cosmetic woes in short, I would say that I never really was blessed with the fortune of having clear skin. Staring into the mirror at my reflection every morning was often accompanied by cringing or a deep sigh of self-loathing as I examined my flaky, red and irritated skin taking over my entire face. A night’s sleep would leave me waking up the morning after with terrible acne and the scars never seemed to fade.
Moisturisers and different cleansing products worked for a while but I never really had anything that left my skin in a stable condition. It often happened that just as I felt that a product was beginning to work on my skin, my face would suddenly get used to it, thus adding another half-empty moisturiser bottle to the pile of used products in my bathroom. I’ve hopped on and off the skincare merry-go-round a thousand times by now and I honestly feel like switching to more natural products like Egyptian Magic has been a major help as it doesn’t irritate my sensitive skin.
Six ingredients make the product: Olive Oil, Beeswax, Bee Pollen, Royal Jelly and Propolis Extract (Which is yet another substance in the product used by bees.) There is absolutely nothing else in the moisturiser. No preservatives, no parabens and absolutely no chemicals of any kind, making it ideal for sensitive skin.
As you can probably imagine, the consistency of the cream is very thick and waxy due to its ingredients/components. To tell the truth, the overall feel of the product is a lot like petroleum jelly or vaseline. For that reason alone, I really would advise that you use this as a night cream as it does take quite some time for it to be soaked into the skin. The fact that Egyptian Magic can only really be used as a night cream (unless you suffer from extremely dry skin) is probably the only major downside of the product. However, I don’t feel like I can complain too much as there is always a major difference in the softness of my skin in the morning.
While Egyptian Magic may be an inhabitant of the pricier realm in the skincare world, there can be no doubt that it is definitely worth the investment. Not only because the tub lasts for months on end but also because of how versatile the product is. Because it can pretty much fix anything, it means that you don’t have to spend much on specific products anymore. Egyptian Magic is a way of warding off all enemies of clear skin with one single weapon.
Egyptian Magic is an all purpose skin cream meaning that it can be used to correct pretty much any imperfection on the face or body. From my experience, I find that it works particularly well against acne, redness, as well as any other type of unevenness in the complexion if you are trying to obtain a porcelain look. It also works really well for fading scars, moisturising dry or cracked skin, as well as an eye cream for preventing premature wrinkles and minimising the appearance of dark circles. I have also heard a lot of people saying that Egyptian Magic works wonders as a conditioner for your hair, however this is something that I am yet to try out!
I’ve had so many problems with my skin ever since the beginning of my teenage years and now that I am in my early twenties, the leftover damage still bothers me. I used to chop and change products a lot but I haven’t really had to do this since I switched to this moisturiser. Whenever I use products from more natural sources I notice the biggest improvement in the quality of my skin and I love how there is not a single synthetic ingredient in this cream.
Perhaps if you have skincare struggles like I do, giving Egyptian Magic a go is the route to go? Or maybe you have tried it already? Even if you have found a different skin saviour and would like to talk about it please feel free to comment down below. I’d love to find out what you like to use and what your favourite skin creams are.
That’s it for this beauty review today. I really hope that you have a wonderful day and I hope to see you in the next blogpost!
