There are a few products I can name off the top of my head that always grace the bathroom vanities of Hollywood stars – Weleda Skin Food, Dr Bronner’s Castile Liquid Soap and Egyptian Magic All-Purpose Skin Cream. All very affordable products, mind you.

Now an accomplished author, podcast host and founder of feminine hygiene company Love Wellness, Lo Bosworth has left her reality TV roots behind – however, luckily for us, she’s still big on the ‘gram. Which is exactly how I found out about her obsession with Egyptian Magic All-Purpose Skin Cream, and why she’s now convinced she’s “reverse ageing”.
But what exactly is Egyptian Magic?
It’s a best-selling healing balm made from a blend of all-natural ingredients and is considered a must in bathroom cupboards to treat ailments from sunburn to abrasions, razor bumps to ingrown hairs, as well as chapped lips and nappy rash.
According to Lo, she uses it as a facial moisturiser under her sunscreen every day – a tip we think she might’ve learned from her old co-star Lauren Conrad who calls this all-purpose product “a serious miracle worker”.
What’s In It?
Egyptian Magic only contains six ingredients: olive oil, beeswax, honey, bee pollen, royal jelly and propolis extract. From that ingredients list, you may have already established this formula is not vegan-friendly, but it is free from additives, preservatives, fragrance and parabens.
This blend of ingredients is hydrating and ultra-nourishing, with anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties. It helps to form a protective barrier against environmental aggressors and seals in moisture to maintain hydration levels.
Egyptian Magic has a balm-to-oil texture that melts into the skin, and layers beautifully under makeup for a dewy, glowing finish. It can also be used to add gloss to the skin and eyes, and doubles as a hair and face mask too.
★★★★★ This stuff is amazing – Sylvia
“I got a sample of this & put it in my dry hands, elbows & arms before bed & next morning they were completely transformed. I ordered the big jar straight away. I find it a bit heavy for my face but good on the neck, great on the body & dry lips. I think it’s the bee products in there that make it magic. Will use forever!”
★★★★★ Yaaaasss – Lucy
“Always come back to repurchasing this “cream” after using Vaseline and other ointments that are cheaper. I use this on my face when my skin is dry and flaky! I know that after applying a generous layer overnight, I wake up in the morning and my skin is hydrated and no more dryness. I also love using this on my lips, my feet and sometimes under makeup.”
★★★★★ Lovely – Jessica
“This product is honestly amazing! It nourishes my skin and makes it feel so hydrated and soft! I definitely recommend this product to anyone and everyone, especially if you have dry skin!”
