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.

Maybe I was expecting "MAGIC"
Purchased

I have had a problem with dry skin on my cheeks and this really did not help the dryness go away. But I do rub this cream on my hands before bed at night and when I wake up in the morning, they are so amazingly soft. So that's why the 3 stars. It didn't fix the problem I bought it for but is useful for other moisturizing needs.

Where to begin
Purchased

I've loved product for about 7 years now and finally bought myself a new pot. I seriously use it for everything--lips, cuticles, dry skin areas, etc. The smell is a little meh but it soaks right in and doesn't feel greasy. Really is magic.

Great skin cream!!!

Really enjoyed this cream. Would love to get the full size to see how it continues to work for me. I added this to my face and elbows. Really moisturized my skin. LOVE!

So so

This cream was nice if I put it on directly before bed, but otherwise I found it to be greasy and uncomfortable on my skin. Not my fav

Great moisture without cloogging pores!

I have celiac as well as a contact allergen to wheat and gluten and this is the first moisturizer that does not cause a reaction. I love the moisturizing ability as well as the fact that it absorbs in to the skin quickly and then I can apply my makeup soon after. Great product!

Smooth Elbows!
Purchased

I have certain areas of my body that always get dry skin, despite daily use of lotions, and everything I have tried to get rid of the extremely dry skin didnt work until this!
I ususally put it on right before bed and I have noticed a huge difference!

Was expecting a bit more...
Purchased

I didn't really like the oily feel of this on my face. I also didn't really feel it improved my skin at all - and since I have dark spots and some blemishes, I hoped for more. But, for basic moisture at a good price that is all natural, I recommend.

It is MAGIC!
Purchased

I was a bit skeptical about this sample in my March box. I ended up with 3 small samples and it took me a week to use one! I have oily skin so i thought this was going to be a bust however it is the BEST face moisturizer I have used in years! I have not had a breakout since I started using this and my skin is so smooth. I just ordered a full size in hopes it will magically make my age lines disappear! MUST HAVE

Seriously moisturizing

This sample has lasted me so long because a little goes a long way! This cream is so moisturizing and really great for dry patches (especially on elbows). I found it way too intense and oily for my face (I have combination skin) but its really done the trick this winter on dry patches, recommend it for very dry skin!
