It is almost embarrassing to admit to this, but Egyptian Magic has become our household's multi-tasking potion of choice. As if the name isn't cheesy enough and the packaging as bad as it gets, the makers list "divine love" as an ingredient. Nevertheless, Egyptian Magic ($33) has ousted my old standby, Elizabeth Arden's Eight Hour Cream.

Egyptian Magic is really nothing more than a concoction of bee byproducts such as honey and wax. A particularly interesting one is propolis, a kind of bee mortar. Bees collect resin from trees and use it to seal up small holes in the hive to ensure it is water tight. In stark contrast, Eight Hour Cream is mostly petrolatum, an oil byproduct that can contain carcinogenic impurities.

Use Egyptian Magic for small cuts, insect bites, sunburn, ultra-dry hands or heels. The person who tipped me off about it said he uses it with great success on razor rash. My husband gave it a try, but said it made him look like an ancient Egyptian priest about to perform a sacred rite.

Ingredients in Egyptian Magic

Olive oil, bees wax, honey, bee pollen, royal jelly, bee propolis
