Now, I do like to keep my Beauty tips and tricks separate, as Beauty and Makeup are one of my loves (Trained MUA here with a love of science to find ingredients that are good for your skin!), but I do feel I should definitely let all the mums (and dads) know about anything that either makes us look better or you can use on the kids! For more Beauty info you can follow my Beauty alter ego on @blbeautyloves - I do have a blog site too but that’s next in line for a revamp and relaunch after this one.
So anyway, if you’ve never seen or heard of it, this is Egyptian Magic cream and it should be in any self respecting mums cupboard! It looks like lard (mmm) but it’s actually solid oil. So you scrape a tiny piece off and warm it between your fingers and it turns into the most nourishing and healing oil you can buy. Simple ingredients from a recipe from the ancient Egyptian times, it contains only olive oil, beeswax, honey, bee pollen, royal jelly and propolis extract. The honey and related ingredients are naturally antibacterial and healing. You can use this for so many things but I’ll just let you know what WE use it for:
Face cream at night to get rid of my dry flaky bits and wake up glowing, also under eyes at night.
Hair taker, defrizzer.
Spot cream (stops those horrid scans if you’re a picker like me!).
Conditioner for eyebrows and lashes.
Use on eczema patches.
Cuts and grazes for the kids.
Kids eczema patches or dry skin areas.
Chapped lips and nose etc when they have colds - it doesn’t sting!
All rashes including nappy rash - it looks like a barrier cream but isn’t as it all soaks in after a while.
It has so many more uses but is a great, simple and natural product to have lying around and I love it on my face as an overnight mask! Cured youngests chapped lips and nose overnight, heals cuts and spots. I buy mine from the Naturisimo website as that’s the cheapest, £26.50 with free delivery, and I think you can get a 10% discount code for your first shop.
I do have another amazing balm to tell you all about but that’s one for another day! I also use this as the base for a migraine head balm which actually works! 🎉
