Egyptian Magic Cream-Day One

5 Mar

So today I picked up my ‘magic cream’ from the post office and could hardly wait to get it home and try it out! The first thing I noticed was that the tub was A LOT smaller than I thought…(I didn’t really look at the ml).




However, as I opened it up, I realised that it wasn’t a cream but a balm. So you don’t really need to apply much for quite a good coverage.

The small dip in the balm (as I will now be calling it!) is the amount I used to cover both hands, so the tub should last a long time!


My first impressions of it were good. I spread it all over my hands, including the cracks in my skin, and it didn’t sting or feel itchy! This was a good start for me. I was worried about the smell, as I had read reviews from people saying that the product had a weird ‘chemical’ smell, which I thought was strange since it boasts all natural ingredients, but I couldn’t really smell anything. It just smells like an unscented lip balm. I went to wash my hands about 5 minutes after I had applied the balm and it seemed to stay on my hands pretty well! The skin on my hands was already feeling more soft and supple after just one application, and didn’t leave a tightness like other excema creams did. I went off to work and after washing my hands several times throughout the day, my skin didn’t dry out which is unbelievable for me! I didn’t feel the need to scratch or pick all day.


When I got home I applied a second coat, and it just makes my hands feel wonderful! I can already feel my hands are able to move more fluidly, rather than not being able to bend my fingers due to cracks and severe dryness. The only trouble with this balm is that it is VERY greasy, like many other emollients, so I am finding that applying it when I don’t need to touch anything or do anything is best. I am about to apply a third coat and leave gloves on before I go to bed and see what my hands feel like in the morning.


I am already feeling like this really is a magic cream/balm! Very excited!



Egyptian Magic Cream Trial

4 Mar

After suffering from rather severe excema for many years and having tried every pill, cream and diet under the sun in an attempt to help the condition, to no avail, I was coming to the end of my tether. One day I was randomly browsing the net looking for makeup when I came across a cream that at first glance was supposed to be an extraordinary multi-use moisturiser that customers and celebrities were raving about. A product that boasts all natural ingredients, it is supposedly good for the face under makeup or as a general facial moisturiser, for the body as a general moisturiser and to reduce the appearance of scars and patchy skin tone. It wasn’t until I looked into this wonder cream a bit more that I discovered reviews claiming that it was amazing for excema, due to it’s healing properties and moisturisation combined. I read many reviews from people who had severe psoriasis, acne, burns and skin so bad that they couldn’t move without it cracking and bleeding, who found that the cream helped them.

It seemed too good to be true and at £25 a tub, it was a bit of an investment for me to make for something that might not work. However eventually I decided to take the plunge and order myself a tub, which arrived today! I am going to keep track of my experience and results with the cream on here over the next few weeks and I am hoping that this will be the answer to my prayers! It is not just for me either, as I have several friends who have varying forms of excema and I know they would love to try some without having to buy a tub themselves! Day one of the trial will start tomorrow!  

I really am hoping this is a ‘magic cream’!
