Egyptian Magic - a Winter skincare must-have

 You've probably already read your fair share of Egyptian Magic reviews, but it's something I've reached for so much recently that I thought it was time to give it a blog post.

The multipurpose cream (is it a cream or a balm?) has long been a cult beauty product thanks to its simple ingredients and impressive moisturising effect. Many makeup artists keep a tub or two in their kit and for many people across the globe it’s become a bit of a household staple. It’s been around for over 2 decades but I've only used it for the last year or so, when I ordered my partner a tub because nothing was helping his poor chapped hands.

Egyptian Magic is a blend of Olive Oil, Beeswax, Propolis, Honey, Royal Jelly and Bee Pollen and is designed to bring moisture, nourishment and relief to pretty much anywhere.

With no added fragrance or preservatives, the skin cream can be used as an everyday moisturiser, eye cream, lip balm, cleanser, hair mask, cuticle oil, hand cream and all-round moisturiser for anything.

I like to use Egyptian Magic as a lip balm (a thick, luxurious layer as a lip mask overnight too) and to put some much needed moisture back into my hands. I also have recently been enjoying it applied quite lightly to my face pre-morning school run. It feels nourishing and protective on my face, like it's stopping the harsh winter wind from getting to my skin!

I’ve also been applying it around my son’s nose and top lip because he’s at that age where he has a perpetually runny nose and the Egyptian Magic both soothes and adds a bit of a barrier to curb further irritation.

To use, Egyptian Magic recommend warming the cream between hands until it turns oily, then applying where required.

I love honey in my skincare so it was a given that I was going to appreciate Egyptian Magic. The Egyptian Magic cream is very bee-centric, with the inclusion of pollen, propolis and royal jelly as well as actual honey. It has a lovely natural honey scent too which I find incredibly comforting – it’s not sickly, just that lovely hit of sweetness you get when you open a jar of honey.


I absolutely love this product and if you haven’t tried it already, there’s no time like the present, so get stuck into a jar of your own! You can find small trial-sized pots or just dive in with a 118ml size from Boots or Look Fantastic where it retails for around £29 (but there's usually a special offer or discount).
