ESSENTIALS: Egyptian Magic

November 8, 2012

Filed Under : BEAUTY

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!
