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.
--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.
--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!
