For the first time, EVER, I adore a skin care product that only meets one of the above listed criteria. I honestly don't know how I love the Egyptian Magic Cream when it smells like olive oil, leaves my skin extremely greasy AND requires some additional activation via hand rubbing.....oh wait, yes I do. It's because it makes my skin look glorious!!
I first heard about this product from a recent guest post from the fabulous Louise entitled the Top 5 Celebrity Beauty Secrets. As soon as I heard that both Kate Hudson and Gisele Bundchen were fans, I knew I had to try it. So I ordered some from Amazon and waited with bated breath for my package to arrive.
Less is best so the container will last a long time
Reduces the appearance of scars, acne and blemishes
Can also be used as a hair treatment
Reduces the appearance of fine lines and dark circles
Smells like olive oil
Leaves skin greasy
If you can get over the smells and the greasiness than this is definitely the cream for you. I should probably mention that I only use this cream in the evenings AND on days when I'm not wearing makeup. (I do think that it's a bit too greasy to wear under makeup.) Either way, this cream has not only diminished my acne scarring but leaves my skin extremely smooth and moisturized. I guess there really is a reason why celebrities love this product too...
Have any of you ladies tried this before? What are your thoughts?
PS - I wanted to leave you with the cutest picture of my mom and me. I went to a wedding fair this weekend with my mom since she was here visiting from Kelowna, During the wedding fair, a photo booth was advertising "Get your face on Real Weddings Magazine" so we, of course, did. Is she not the cutest thing you've ever seen?
