I saw Egyptian Magic at Whole Foods and I was impressed by the 4 oz jar. Usually we're lucky if we get an ounce of premixed creams. The label on the jar is worthy of Dr. Bronner, with its mess of symbols, aphorisms, and "Peace Unto You"; and the CEO of Egyptian Magic, LordPharaoh ImHotepAmonRa, may actually be even weirder than the kooky Dr. Bronner. Never being one to resist anything quirky, I bought a jar.This is a waxy balm that gets oily as the temperature rises, like coconut oil. At first it seems extremely greasy (like coconut oil) but it eventually soaks in if left on overnight. When I use this I have to have something covering my skin (like pajamas and socks), because it takes a long time to be absorbed. I use this at night, on my tormented feet, elbows, knees, thighs, etc. It softens callouses overnight. I've used it around my eyes a couple of times when the skin has felt especially dry, but only at night, because, on my skin, this stuff is oily, oily. It's great on neck and decolletage only if I have a low collar, because lint will stick to the balm. I haven't tried this on my whole face, because of the grease factor, but if I ever got windburn I'd definitely give it a try. I use this to tame frizz in my hair, and to soften dry ends. I also use it for chapped lips, but it doesn't last overnight. It's good for maintaining soft lips, but not for softening lips that are already dry. It doesn't seem to be fragranced, but if you get close and sniff it has a slightly sweet scent. This is much less greasy than Palmer's Cocoa Butter, and it doesn't leave a smell on my skin.This doesn't work as well for me for hangnails, chapped lips, dry patches, scars, windburn, elbows & knees, as Josie Maran Argan Balm (also in 4 oz. jar) and Josie Maran Argan Infinity Cream Intensive Creamy Oil. If these products disappeared, I might be satisfied replacing them with Egyptian Magic. I like Egyptian Magic better than Eight Hour Cream, 27 Wishes, Lush Ultrabalm, Waxelene (I hate this stuff), Jurlique Love Balm, and Embryolisse Baume Secours. Overall, for regular use that's friendly to my budget, Coconut Oil is the way to go, but Josie Maran Argan products work best for skin problems.

Great moisturizer for chapped skin. I use it on my face anytime the weather is cooler than usual. I have fairly dry skin, but someone with oily skin might find it too heavy. Texture is pleasant and it emulsifies very easily.

I initially bought this to try with my grandson who has eczema, but it came as a three pack with a very small travel size and so I decided to try it. IT"S WONDERFUL! I used it on my under eye wrinkles and around my mouth and on my neck where I was beginning to see some crepiness. . I also used it on a chronic dry elbow that NOTHING else had helped and as a general moisturizer on my hands. It is not a cream, but a thickened oil.It melts immediately on contact with skin and although it feels a bit thick going on it soaks right in and in less than 5 mintues my skin was soft and smooth. NO Oiliness at all. I think perhaps those who claim it's TOO thick and oily are applying TOO MUCH. A little of this goes a very long way. I LOVE how the skin on my face looks after one week of this. I have long used Philosophy skin care products and still use their moisturizer in the rmorning but Egyptican Magic is MY BEDTIME cream of choice. My nail cuticles and hands look better than they ever have and the dry elbow patch is GONE completely. It has also worked wonders on my grandson's eczema. His mother applies it to his damp skin after bathing, it soaks in, she applies another layer then puts pajamas on and in the morning, smooth soft skin with no more itching. My family will continue to use this product faithfully. Iit is dye and perfume free.

When I first bought this cream for $52 at my local Mecca store, like everyone else I was extremely surprised to see it has an almost wax-like consistency. I found that upon contact with hands (or on a warm day) this product instantly melts into a more oil-like consistency, and is much easier to spread across the face. As someone who gets oily very easily, I was apprehensive about trying such a heavy product on my face, so I used it before bed, and when I woke up the next morning I was shocked at how soft and smooth my skin felt! I applied a little bit before my makeup and I was glowing for the rest of the day. I now use this in the mornings before I apply my makeup (leave to absorb for 10 minutes), and at night before I go to bed. It has made my skin a bit clearer, a bit brighter and a bit healthier. It's a little expensive, especially if you're in Australia like I am, but I'd definitely recommend it. You can use it everywhere, I use it on my stretch marks and my mother uses it on her eczema and we've both found it to be a really good product. But one thing; the letters on my tub have started to slide off/disintegrate/rub off for no apparent reason, not sure if this has happened to anyone else.

This is a good, all natural moisturizer with a very decent, soft smell. I personally love the scent as I like everything that smells of natural beeswax. I especially like to use it as a footcream after showering as it makes my feet very soft and moisturizes the skin very well. And no, I don't think this is like vaseline - at all, as it has no mineral oil or derivates of it! It spreads easily and sinks into the skin quickly. Be careful to purchase the original product as there are many fakes with not all natural ingredients at all! (and I really wish people would at least try to write in a comprehensible language here. (g8? Wtf?)

Firstly, let me say that I've known about this product for YEARS & never would've bought it, but while shopping with my Mum @ Costco, she saw it & wanted to try it.It came in a pack which included a large pot & a smaller sized one, which Mum kindly gave to me.The ingredients are amazing, but it's definitely NOT a cream!It has a similar texture / appearance to that of petroleum jelly.I did try it on my face & wouldn't recommend it as it doesn't absorb & just makes my face look really shiny.So instead, I use it as a lip balm - a very expensive lip balm!I knew there was a reason as to why I didn't fall for the hype.So not worth the money.

Considering the ingredients, this product is good. But it's extremely oily, instead of putting it on my face, I prefer to use it as foot balm. It's extremely nourishing, so please take into consideration before you purchase!

I use it as a night cream. My skin is oily on the T-zone and i cannot wear this in the morning under my makeup. I only wash my face at night and put this on to sleep. Then in the morning i do nothing and just put my makeup on and it works really well. My skin is glowy and well-moisturized. It's a bit pricey and it is NOT a day cream unless your skin is very very dry.I hesitated between 3 and 4 lippies, it's a 3.5 in fact. I like the ingredients and the texture (wax-like) you only need a tiny amount and a jar lasts forever.
