Take Egyptian Magic on the go—snag the smaller purse-friendly size.

Egyptian Magic

Birchbox Breakdown

Pulling a rabbit out of a hat or making someone disappear is impressive, but it’s got nothing on this cure-all known as Egyptian Magic. This 100 percent natural cream, said to be derived from a formula found in ancient Egyptian tombs, can pretty much do it all. It’s a face cream, an eye gel, a hair masque, a treatment for burns, and has even been know to heal psoriasis and eczema. And that’s just the beginning. It’s no wonder it’s become a cult favorite among doctors and celebs alike.

How it Works

The formula is made of just six ingredients, all of them completely natural (and never tested on animals). Olive oil penetrates deeply, leaving skin soft and supple, while beeswax creates a protective barrier to help retain moisture. Honey and royal jelly team up to rejuvenate skin and support collagen production. Bee pollen absorbs free radicals from skin and propolis extract promotes healing.

How to Use

Warm a small amount in hands to soften into oil, and then apply to skin or hair as needed. A little goes a long way.

It's Magic
Sampled

I had been wanting to try this product for, I don't know, FOREVER, so I was so excited it came in my Birchbox! It does go on a little greasy but it blends in pretty quickly. Plus, it makes your skin feel super soft and silky! It smells a bit like oatmeal, which I don't mind. Definitely psyched I got to try it.

It's OK
Sampled

This is very moisturizing, but not quite the 'magic' I was hoping for. It works on lips, face, feet, etc, which is nice. It was a bit greasy on my face, so I've discontinued using there except around my eyes.

eh

I'm not sure if it was the sample size, but it was difficult to apply cream from the jar. It was greasy and overall I was not too impressed.

Not for Oily Skin
Sampled

Being that I'm extra oily in the summer, I don't foresee myself using this much until the fall or winter. It's fairly lightweight, but it is still a bit too much oily for me.

Works Great

I think this is one of few products that I would actually buy full size. It felt greasy initially but absorbed well and worked wonders. I typically have oily skin but I could even use this as a facial moisturizer. I can't wait to find more uses for it.

No thanks

I'm not a member of the 'Egyptian Magic is the best-kept secret' society. It's too greasy for me, and I don't care for the scent. It is a nice size sample.

I wanted to like

I wanted like this product but it just seemed like standard jelly and had no real scent nor did it seem to provide much moisture to my skin.

Works great

I have very dry skin at the crease of my nose and this worked great. All other lotions didn't do much. It is a little greasy so you only needed a little bit to make your dry skin smooth.

great for very dry skin
Sampled

I have been using this on my elbows, feet, lips and other dry skin. It works great. I think its a little too greasy for general use, but wonderful for super dry skin.
