Review: Egyptian Magic All Purpose Cream

Hi guys! Here's is the review for EM. I'm sure some of you have been waiting for this for a long time, so here we go!

As you all know, I have SEVERE scarring on my right cheek, I don't know why, but it's just on my right. I think that's the side I sleep on, which is why I need to wash all my sheets/pillow cases. After months of not seeing any results of scar fading from GOW products I was using (since they were more hydrating than"scar fading"), I decided to branch out and try more products. I've heard good things about Egyptian Magic but gawked at the high price tag of $35 at my local health food store (like Wild Oats, Trader Joe's, Whole Food, etc). However, I couldn't stand my scars anymore (and since I need a "referral" from my regular doctor to see a dermatologist, and she won't refer me, so I can't get Retin-A or Differin), I sucked it up and purchased my first jar of Egyptian Magic (EM).

HOLY MOTHER OF JESUS!! How did I live for so long without this piece of jem?!! I couldn't believe how moisturizing this is! So, move on to detailed review:

Name: Epytian Magic All Purpose Cream

Price: $25-$35 depending on where you buy it from

Where can I buy it?: online or big health food stores

Ingredients (This is the best part!): Olive oil, Beeswax, honey, Pollen, Royal Jelly, and propolis extract

Claims:"...used as an anti aging rejuvenation to maintin radiant, healthy, smooth and glowing skin."

Packaging: It's in a very plain jar. It's simple but a little unsanitary since you have to dig your finger in.

Texture: When you first touch it, it seems like vaseline, but it melts on contact and turns into oil.




Pros:
--Extremely moisturizing. I couldn't stop touching my face in the morning!
--All natural ingredients.
--Even though it's $$ at first, one little 4oz jar will last you a LONG time!
--I can see that my scars had faded quite a bit in the 3 weeks time.
--Works on all skin types. YES, even oily skin!
--It doesn't break me out or clog my pores.
--It evens out my skintone.

Cons:
--The intial cost.
--The stupid jar! Even though this is how they allow you to control the amount you needed.
--When you firt put it on, it's really oily. It takes about 30 minutes to sink in, which is why I recommend to only use this at night. However, your skin will be unbelievably soft afterwards.

My before and after:
Before: The scars are red and very visible.

After: Less visible and red. IDK why I was making that "I see dead ppl" face.

I know the lighting is different. I promise I will take better pics next time.

With makeup...You can barely see them! YAY!!

Let this be our little secret!


Overall, I give this product 4.5 out of 5! High recommend!

Thanks for viewing!
Take care!
Tao

Vanessa M. said...

fuzkittie said...

Nice! Seems to be doing its job for you!

MakeupByRenRen said...

wow that seems like good stuff!

Sher said...

I'm so scared of trying new face products cause almost everything seems to break me out :( I'm hoping my current routine will be the best since its very gentle :)
oh and the new MSFs, someone got it earlier and posted it on specktra :) I wish I had them that earlier lol

jojoba said...

WOW!!!! i so need ths product for my brown spots!!!

ps: i just discovered your blog and i really love it. listed on my blog roll now. i love all the posts i have read!

Sar said...

Do you use this as moisturizer all over your face? Or just target spots?

Mocha said...

Hey, what are the ingredients for this? Can this be used as a night cream?

M said...

woah. this is hot stuff!?!?! i wonder if it'll work on my oily skin ?

' * : . b | u 3 . : * ' said...

Thats so weird your doctor won't refer you? This product sounds good but really rich - does it smell strongly of beeswax at all? (like how Burts' Bees lipbalm does)

miemiemie said...

wow, congrats on finding the product that truly works for you :) and the scars do look lighter in the after photo :)

LadyJane said...

Interesting. I wanna try it now! I wonder if I can get it in Canada.

Askmewhats said...

girl you are so good with covering scars and i swear you look like you have the world's perfect skin :)

GirlyPosh said...

wow... i've never heard of this product before but thanks a lot for the review

ANGE said...

apparently, madonna swears by this stuff... and look at her - she doesnt look her age at all!

kawaiikao said...

Elisa said...

angie519 said...

Oh awesome! I'm using a bunch of scars right now and I wanna get that to try!! =) Thanks for sharing! Aw you're so cute! You make the funniest faces!!!

Anonymous said...

oh wow! i cant wait to try it... i've just started reading your blog and appreciate you sharing your experience and review on acne scars. i'm facing the same problem -__-

can you do a review and swatches on the coverblend concealer you use? i really want to try it but the colors on their site are pretty vague... thanks!

Anonymous said...

Ooh, I want to try it but one quick q first...did this cause any zits?

Zelly said...

Awww I am sooooo tempted to go and buy this Tao! But i have combination to oily skin. will this make me even oilier?

SunKiss said...

ANGE, I suppose u have no idea how much plastic surgery Madonna has done!lol

Anonymous said...

it may not be your pillowcase but your cell phone that is causing the breakouts on one side of your cheek. Certain cellphones contain a metal that irritates the skin. is that the side you talk on??

MandaxLeslie said...

thanks for the review!

nanshi said...

This is supremely late, BUT I also just wanted to point out that visiting a derm. might not necessarily be cheaper. I don't know about your insurance plan, but my health insurance is $40 copay for specialists and something around $10-15 for prescriptions.

So this is still cheaper. The only thing that's holding me back is I'm not sure if it will work successfully on me... =(

Female_intuition said...

Looks very intriguing! Don't use differin, my sister has severe acne and she has tried it. It doesn't work for her =\ She claims it actually dries her skin and breaks her out even more, weird!

FuN and MakeUp said...

wow veryyy good... great coverage!
btw.. im new to your blog.. and i LOVE your blog!!!!!!!

jennilynnexd said...

hmm this product looks like vaseline but from your review maybe i should try it. your skin looks amazing! so hydrated and clear! my skin is so dry from acne treatments and nothing works to fade those horrible acne scars. just makeup to hide them. but it sounds oily wont it make my skin break out more? maybe i can try Trader Joe's thats the only store close to my town. but thanks for reviewing it. but for $35 thats a lot do you have any samples?

hey tao! is there any any any any way i can get a sample of this product before i buy it in the stores for that much of the price?

tzu tzu said...

Hey Tao, Thanks for the review. Just wondering, since you posted this initial review, do you still in love with this cream now? I have this really nasty scar on my cheek which I had tried to get rid of using laser treatment once. After the treatment, the scar was faded by some degree. However, before I can get another treatment done, the scar came back with a vengeance. It not only gets bigger and darker also. Looking at your amazing result, I was wondering if I should try it myself, but a bit worry about my combo skin's ability to take this magic balm. one more question, do you notice any effect on shrinking pore sizes? I have pretty noticable pores on the both sides of my nose. I would appreciate if you can give me your extra two cents on this product. Thanks so much.

Wow this amazing, i have a hard time with my face being oily and i get zits and black heads all the time. And everytime my zits start to go away more comes up and its even worse. I dont know what to do, ive tried a few different things but nothing has changed. I would love ti try this product some time, how might i go about trying it?
Cant you help me out?

bunnikins82 said...

Ok, so that stuff is good but what does Jesus and His Mother has to do with it???????? Is there no other words in the mighty English language to express an excitement?! Don`t get me wrong, I am not trying to be rude but it is just getting ridiculous and offensive for Christians.

Tunics&mangochutney said...

Whoaaaa - Easy on the eyeliner there !

Use individually wrapped alcohol squares pads available in a pharmacy by insulin supplies a few times a day on your mobile phone.

Disinfecting your phone will cut down all that acne on your face.

Hey there.
I am glad to hear this news. (might be too late)
I always had acne, scars and oily face problems.
It was so hard to find a real good and suitable product for my skin.

So, may I know is this product available in any stores in Malaysia (Kuala Lumpur)?

I would appreciate much to receive your reply. : )

♥--Łϊиğg™ said...

Hey there,
I always have problem on searching real best or good products for my acne skin.
After all I watched Bubz video and she's reviewing this product.

So, is there any available stores in Malaysia (Kuala Lumpur) or would you mind to send me a sample product?

I would appreciate so much! : )

Desiree said...

Hi Tao!!! My name is Desiree...I am from California, allergy and acne prone, and 28 years old. I can never find a product that works and continues to do so. It seems like me skin gets used to products ad they only work for a few days. And if I stop even for an evening it's back with a vengeance! Does that happen to you? Any advice? ;)

Would it be possible to send me a small sample? I feel bad asking, but I would greatly appreciate it! Thank you!

Desiree said...

P.S. I am a new fan of your blog and your reviews! Your amazingly helpful! I can't wait to read more! Happy Holidays!!! :D

Vanessa said...

I adore this "cream" - it just has so many uses and leaves skin feeling oh-so-soft.Plus it's all natural - I highly reccomend!

HaloDior said...

I love this cream! Leaves my face amazing I use it every night. Also use it on my stretch marks on my stomach and it has done wonders to reduce them. I found that iherb.com has pretty good prices I paid only $31 for the 4oz jar. As well if you use the COUPON CODE ZEW235 you save an extra $5 off your order. I would highly recommend this product!!

pistiuie said...

Omgosh!!! I love this! That's really amazing as to how the scars almost!! I want try it too!! Do you where I can get a sample for it just to see if it works on my acne scars because I breakout a lot and scars are always visible! And not even that, I have oily skin and it bugs me a lot. :/

amaia marquinez said...

hey i love your blog!!!!, though i just found out about it thanks to 'bubzbeauty':). I was wanting to ask you if the EMC really works b/c i have tried too many products so far and NOTHING has worked/made my face look better.
I would as well like to know where to get it from, since i live in Finland i cant find it anywhere...

Hope you answer!(:

lovelightcentral said...

hey another tip to besutiful skin if you love the natural remedies is to not wear make up. or at least be very gentle taking it off it does such aging on your skin after all that tugging and pulling and clogging. besides we're all much more beautiful the way we are. we exist... does a flower do anything more to be beautiful?... nope it simply is all you have to do is be. i understand getting all dolled up.. im a girl i do it too. do yourself a favor. :-) not trying to ruin any ones fun just another point of view.:-)
