Egyptian Magic


The worst part about this broken-faucet-style weather (that's "hot and cold," get it?) is not just that it makes you feel a little crazy (turtlenecks in the morning and t-shirts by mid-afternoon) but also the number it does on your skin. So what to do? Think Magic. Egyptian Magic. Because it's endorsed by not one, not two, but three fabulous women—not to mention a pre-ITG Alessandra—and if there's one thing we've learned, it's that three is a bonafide trend.

Jessica Stam told us the salve is “great if [she] has a skin irritation.” Jessica Noghes-Menio said it's the perfect thing for her dry skin (she uses it on her face), and Caroline Trentini raved: “It has the right name because it is truly magic. It cures everything from sunburn to chapped lips, anything. When you have really beautiful skin, that’s all that matters.” Sounds about right. (The olive oil/beeswax/bee pollen/bee propolis/royal jelly mixture is also said to work wonders on dandruff, scars, stretch marks, and athlete's foot. Of course, none of this is scientifically proven.)

    I first tried Egyptian Magic because of the chic women on ITG endorsing it and, seriously, it is the BEST! It's name is accurate. My skin is extremely sensitive and dry and this product is so gentle and versatile. It is the perfect fix, especially during the harsh Chicago winter.
    Once again, I owe you big time ITG. Thank you for your wisdom. x

    I have this stuff and it is awesome - even on my oily, acne-prone, sensitized skin. Use it as a pre-treatment after peels or excessive use of retinoids (all the time). Crisco the skin and marinate...then I wash it off a few hours later. Awesome and comparatively inexpensive to other balms.

    Is it just me or does this stuff go bad really easily? I know it's not supposed to spoil, like ever, but over the years I've tossed several containers because it just gets funky fast. Now I've given up & moved on. The ingredients are really great though.

      Hi! The ingredients in this are natural preservatives, so the jars shouldn't be going bad. I would contact the company since they offer a money back guarantee.

    Good to know, thanks!!

    I just bought this the other day because my normal moisturizer is not doing the trick for my ridiculously dry skin (and also I have a massive problem with dermatillomania/skin picking and I have some scabs on my face...). So far so good! I'm a bit breakout-prone, but this feels amazing, and hasn't done anything negative yet! *knocks on wood*

    I love all purpose creams. Will have to give this one a go!

  • Ninacecily

    One of the Greatest Products Known to Wo-Man! I use it daily on my face, my entire body and my hair - It's uses are phenomenal and extensive! I've never EVER known a greater product! Every person I come into contact with asks me: What is your Beauty Regimen? I merely snatch out a jar of the "Magic" and they become instant believers and customers!
