I have always loved History ever since and I try to update myself on it every now and then by reading academic journals and watching documentaries online, and immersing myself in Discovery Channel and National Geographic Channel. One particular thing that got me interested is how recent anthropological and historical studies are challenging what we know about the glorious history of Egypt today. Some studies were quite old, technically, but if compared to what we were told, it is still VERY new. Indeed, much has yet to be learned about the entire history of Kemet (Ancient Egypt) as the real descendants start putting the pieces together and making their stories known. I just wanted to say this because I take delight (obviously) in the way the world surprises us and tells us something about ourselves every single day.
I'm still a noob on this aspect of Egyptian culture so don't y'all worry, it ends here-this is not an anthropology class after all. The measly information that I could gather was, long before Cleopatra's birth and reign, the early Kemetians were as equally fascinated at the art of beauty and wellness as well.
EGYPTIAN MAGIC CREAM IN DETAIL
Apparently, the Kemetian folklore reveals a miraculous cream that could heal just about any skin condition. This great skin secret was used by sages, mystics, and even royalties themselves to maintain beautiful skin. This thousand year old cream was revived and is now being sold as Egyptian Magic Cream and is reportedly a favorite of A-list celebrities such as Madonna and Kate Hudson.
The ingredients are not so much of a secret, but it is no secret that they're some of the most effective in the world. Egyptian Magic Cream is being distributed by Yumeimi- Sei in the Philippines.

The original EMC, the one that's being sold internationally comes in big tubs and cost at no less than $80. The one we have locally comes in this tiny pot (for trial purposes) and a bigger jar, which I think is around 30 or 50ml. I got the smallest just to know what the sorcery is all about.
The jar doesn't come with a spatula, however, so be sure to buy a separate one to keep the entire thing fresh since I believe this cream does not contain any preservatives.
It's just like petroleum jelly, but it has a looser, more watery texture-it's very spreadable and a little goes a long way. It has no fragrance and taste. It's actually an all- around cream for the skin that's meant to remedy chafed skin, chapped lips, minor bruises, cuts, wounds, and any minor epidermal condition. It's just like a cheaper version of Lucas Papaw and Rosebud Salve, but with more natural ingredients.
EGYPTIAN MAGIC CREAM IN ACTION
Here are the ways I've used Egyptian Magic Cream:
1. As an Acne Treatment- I've read reviews online saying that this cream also has the ability to minimize acne lesions. I tried it on my tiny zits and face bumps one night, and they were magically gone the next day-methinks Propolis, a known antibacterial agent did all the magic on me. However, on bigger zits, this is not effective at all.
2. As a Lip Balm- this is more effective as a lip balm as it provides all- day comfortable moisturization. I've used it for 2 weeks straight (up until this day) and my dry lips have drastically improved: Even without a lip balm during daytime, my lip still remain smooth. Beeswax, an effective humectant, could've done the marvelous work in here. Works very well on Cold Sores too.
3. As A Skin Balm- I've used it on dry, itchy patches on skin and it does the job. It's also effective for those who are sensitive to copper and fancy accessories: I get rashes on my nape all the time whenever I sweat while my fancy necklaces are on, and they could get pretty nasty and hell itchy. A layer of this cream soothes the nape and prevents rashes from getting worse.
Other uses for Egyptian Magic Cream, according to some sources:
1. Facial Moisturizer- For colder regions and dry skin, it might be okay. But since I have oily skin and I live in a tropical country, I didn't dare try it.
2. For Diaper Rashes
3. Sunburned Skin
4. Minor Cuts- Something as minor as paper cuts, that is. I applied it on a tiny cut on my leg which was caused by my Beagle while we were playing. It gets rid of the itch and pain, and caused the cut to heal quickly. For bigger and deeper wounds, I can't really advise you to use it on them.
5. Scars- Others said that this is not really effective on lightening up scars. While others have experienced slight lightening, it took them a very long time and a couple of jars to see it.
Overall, it's just a regular all- natural cream that's quite effective enough to consider-not really wowed by this though. It could be a gentler alternative to some skin treatments such as acne spot treatments, petroleum jelly, and antibacterial creams.
