Egyptian Magic

IMG_7271

Egyptian Magic is ace! It’s a face cream, an eye gel, a hair masque, burn and wound relief, a baby cream, a shaving balm and can really help with eczema!

FAKE!

Fake pinky, less waxy cream on the right. Real deal on the left.

Unfortunately, there are counterfeit jars of “Egyptian Magic” being sold on Amazon and eBay. Egyptian Magic are working with both Amazon and the Chinese authorities to curtail this problem, but for now it is very widespread.

Distinguishing a genuine jar of Egyptian Magic from a fake jar is not easy, the one of the left is the real stuff which I bought from liberty’s. The one on the right is fake. You can check out the manufacturers FAQ page for their explanation.

I got mine from Liberty’s in the end, although you can also buy it direct.

Now you know.

  1. JUST BOUGHT MYSELF A FAKE EGYPTIAN MAGIC CREAM FROM AMAZON.CA. I TRIED TO OPEN THE PACKAGING AND THE WHOLE WRITING CAME OFF AND THE CREAM LOOKS EXACTLY LIKE THE RIGHT ONE FROM INSIDE. I HAVE ASKED FOR THE REFUND FROM THE SELLER. GOOD LUCK TO ME 🙁

  2. Hello Farwee,

    Did you hear back from the seller? When I contacted my supplier they promised me they didn’t know it was fake, thanked me and refunded me…

  3. I have used both and I can honestly say, the one on the right (pale pink) is far better than the one on the left. I was sent the pale pink one first and I loved it. Also, my daughter loved it for my baby grandson. The next time I ordered, I was sent the other one and it felt like vaseline. It did not do anything for my skin. I was terribly disappointed that it was not the pale pink version. I don’t care who makes it, I prefer the pale pink one.

  4. Hello Jennifer,

    Thank you for sharing your observations, very interesting. I still can’t be 100% sure which cream was the real one or the fake one. The Egyptian Magic website doesn’t have pictures and apparently it’s very hard to tell from the packaging. However I’m as confident as I can be that the ‘pinky’ version was the fake.

    It would be great to hear if anyone else has experience of the two types of cream, there doesn’t seem to be much on the internet about it.

    Also to be honest, the Egyptian Cream didn’t really work out for me. I’ve since moved on to ALOE VERA GEL – which doesn’t feel greasy at all and really helps my dry skin heal.

    Best one I found is SEVEN minerals ALOE VERA GEL 9% Organic, 12oz – NO XANTHAN, Absorbs Rapidly, No Residue.

    Here’s a link to amazon:

  5. Hey Jennifer, my only concern, especially for your baby, might be that the pink cream may not be regulated…hoping there are no harmful chemicals in there. Please use with caution or if you really love it, have it tested before using on the baby. Best luck to you!

  6. I think I’ve just purchased a fake from eBay 🙁 I should have known as the price was to good to be true! I orginally got my first tub on a flight duty free it’s the only cream that helps with my eye eczema I received my second tub from eBay and upon opening I noticed it has a honey smell, I don’t remember my original one uaving any smell at all!

    I did send an email to the supplier that I bought mine from and they were very helpful and thanked me for pointing out their product was a fake. They said they had no idea and did give me a full refund. Michelle, I’d also be interested to know which one of tubs in the picture above looks like the one you thought was fake?

  8. I asked a friend of mine who was in the UK three weeks ago to buy me the cream.
    He said that he ordered it online, only to realise that it is a fake one.
    This one even has a scent yet my first and second never had them.

Ever bought a fake online?
