Is it just a good marketing campaign or is it as good as the positive word of mouth that we heard?
Ok first of all, let me introduce you to Egyptian Magic Cream (EMC).
What is EMC?
It is all purpose cream, for acne bites to eczema, psoriasis to break out skin, even some claim it's good to reduce acne scars.
Made from natural ingredients which has been perfected from ancestor's legacy. They are Olive Oil, Bees wax, Honey, Bee Pollen, Royal Jelly, Bee Propolis and they also claim that they added DIVINE LOVE to their ingredients. How sweet? :D
First Impression and swatch, this similar to my Vaseline Petroleum Jelly, but of course they're totally different. From ingredients and smell it is different. The EMC has no scent at all. But the sticky texture is similar, if you don't have this EMC took your Petroleum Jelly, imagine that sticky stuff is on your face :D
Sounds like i'm not interested at all with this stuff? No, i'm not. I'm quite happy with this product, it's just sometimes people bought something just for the sake, "Oh... CELEBRITIES are using them", do you know how much products they put on their faces? Not to mention their expensive facial treatment, expensive creams, botox and photoshop! LOL!
Try to do a smart shopping girls, really. I heard so much about, people buying stuff just for the sake of that reason, and because of the cute packaging, or simply "If it is expensive, it is good" (especially when it comes to apparel). Not everything expensive is good, sometimes it's just the marketing campaign and pride.
Money can't buy taste everybody!
Now on to review, what i really think about this stuff?
If my face is on its best condition, i wouldn't bother for this stuff i would go for Kiehls or something like that, that available in my country. But now courtesy of my break out skin, and due to my aging, i think this is one of the best investment i do to my skin.
Texture if applied ( i applied this as night cream), your face will look oily and seems greasy and still oily if you touch it one hour later after applied, but it's actually the product working, i didn't feel any heat or nourishing effect whatsoever, but in the morning my face feel a bit supple. And it helps reduce the redness around my nose.
DON'T applied this too much, a little will do, applied it layer by layer because if you're using a lot of cream on your face, you know where'd it go? To your pillow.Beside our skin has it's limitation to absorb particular amount of cream.
I usually swatch and pat it on to my forehead, nose, cheek, and jawline, then i blend it.
If i used this EMC for bug bites, it didn't help at all, still feels itch, and the redness is not really gone!
Using this for 2 months or so now, i stopped about a week and put my new Gizi Supercream, and now start to using it again. My face feel a bit supple, but the neck area is still dry even though i already put it on my neck also for couple weeks. And as i read on Fashionesedaily.com (they have the thread about this EMC there) the acne scars is not really gone.
SO? This is a love and hate products for me.
Ah, the PRICE? Yeah i know, i won't forget it. It's suck we don't have the store here, we have to ordered it online, and some people do sell them on facebook, but some of them are suspected fake EMC, so i'm not gonna put a link. I'd recommend you to bought it online on their website.
$$$ : $24.80 (2oz jar) - $37.20 (4oz jar)
IDR (approx.) from 350 exclude shipping.
Although this product is made from natural ingredients, some people may allergic to bee's thingy (bees wax, honey, royal jelly, etc). So i suggest you guys to swatch it for couple hours on your hands, if it's ok, then you can use it on your face :)
