I bought this product thinking it would be more like a cream than an oily gel. It is a little hard to use, and I found I did not want to put clothes on right after using it for fear of staining.
Nice- but too much for oily skin
I have oily skin an this was too much for my face. it was great for my dry areas like my feet, elbows, and legs.
Although there is a bit of an oily texture, this cream quickly absorbs into skin and leaves a wonderfully soft texture to my skin. Will definitely buy again!
Not bad, but not "magic"
I've tried Egyptian magic as a skin moisturizer and as a hair conditioner. The latter, I would not recommend because it is very hard to wash out and doesn't make the hair easier to brush. As a lotion, it does rub in well, despite seeming oily. I didn't feel the moisturizing effects lasted. I also don't think this particularly helps with psoriasis, despite others noticing improvement.
Will last forever
I was a little stumped how I wanted to use this product. Dry hands for serious treatment? Under eye for serious moisture? I have done both. I think I bought into the advertising that 'everyone from Birchbox has this on their desks'. I had not sampled. If I had I may have passed. Nothing bad, just not a miracle.
Bought this for my daughter who has eczema. It's not a cure, but it defiantly provided relief during the cold and dry winter months.
great multipurpose cream
I use this stuff for everything: eyes, lips face, hands, dry patches. It is a bit greasy so I mostly use it at night. I keep it by my night stand and it does wonders for dry skin.
This stuff is great!
I use this primarily at night around my eyes, for my lips and also for any and all rough patches on my skin. The scent is pleasant without being overpowering and the ingredients are so basic yet effective.
Lives up to the hype.
This stuff is great, the end. It's waaaay better for your skin than something like Vaseline or Aquaphor, but for the most part serves a similar purpose. Except since it's made of natural ingredients (olive oil, etc.) and not petrolatum, your skin can actually absorb it. I had eczema and this really helped with hydrating my patches. Definitely recommend. It's useful for all kinds of things.
I heard so many great things about Egyptian Magic, so I decided to try it. The hype was real! It's almost like an emollient, it goes on greasy, but does not stay greasy once it's on/absorbed into the skin. It moisturizes like a dream. I had a few dry patches on my face and within days they were gone - leaving no dark spots behind. I would say, use it sparingly on your face - my skin tends to be oily. I use it on everything from my face, hands, elbows, feet. I love it!
