I’m going to be honest with you: I buy a lot of shit. But…I try to invest in things (“try” being the emphasized word here) that I know will benefit me in the long run. Essentials, if you will.
So I’ve decided to start a new column about all of my favorite essentials. It’ll be anything from my go-to tees to my favorite kitchen tools. I’m no expert on products WHATSOEVER so you can completely ignore everything I say if it ain’t yo thang.
So here goes! My first essential is Egyptian Magic. One time, I left it at my parents’ house and my mom asked me if it was sex cream. UM, NO MOM!!!! It’s a salve for dry skin, JEEZ!!!!! #awkward.
It resembles Aquaphor or Vaseline but it’s a bit more natural with its’ beeswax and olive oil ingredients. Here’s what I use it for: on dry skin (face, elbows, toes, hands); removing my makeup (eye and lip); on my split ends; as a chapstick for my lips; on my eyebrows to create shape; on sunburns in the summer; and around my eyes. What a multi-tasker!
Also, it lasts FOREVER. I bought this jar probably 8 or 9 months ago and I’ve barely scratched the surface. I love it almost as much as when I click a link in Pinterest and it takes you to the ACTUAL original source. Best thing ever, am I right? You can find it here!
