I have wanted to try Egyptian Magic cream for aaaagggeesssss. I first came across it years ago when I saw a recommendation for it in a magazine. I must have been a skint student because for all these years I thought it was way more expensive than it actually was! You know when you put off buying something in your head because you think it’s really expensive but in reality you’ve not checked the price in years, you’re a full grown adult, you’ve got a full time job and its time to stop spending all your money on McDonalds and Dominos Pizza? SAME. Chicken nuggets though…
Well anyway, I finally bought some because I got an e-mail from their subscription list with a 20% off code and free shipping. I’m not going to say no to that am I! So in the end for 59ml pot I paid £21, which is really reasonable!
Before even trying the cream out, this has everything I look for in a skincare product. It has no additives, preservatives, chemicals, parabens, its fragrance free and it’s not tested on animals. BABES. It’s made with 6 all natural ingredients…olive oil, bees wax, bee pollen, royal jelly and bee propolis. ABOSLUTE BABES.
The instructions for use are to take a bit of cream, rub it between fingers until it melts into an oil and apply to the skin. I love it. Seriously, this is going to get my dry skin through winter. It’s heavily moisturising and hydrating without feeling heavy or greasy. It sinks into the skin quickly, leaving a really natural healthy shine. After it has fully absorbed the skin feels really soft, plump, hydrated and healthy. I have been putting a thin layer under my usual evening Nivea Crème mask for an extra hydration boost and oh my god my skin looks and feels incredible in the morning. It feels like it doesn’t need a moisturiser, which is a first for me! I have been using a light lotion! Lotion! Who would have thought it??? All this after 4 days use…it makes me want to kick myself for putting off buying it for so long!
