If your lips, hands, heels and knees are as parched as the Sahara and you've tried everything in sight, then you need to try this all queen of multi-tasking creams.

"What it does: Quite possibly everything, except your taxes... "--Real Simple

Yes, that is what you'll find in this cult cream known as Egyptian Magic. Made simply and naturally from the following ingredients: olive oil, beeswax, honey, pollen, royal jelly, and propolis extract--oh and "divine love." Yea, this homeopathic cream is a little funky and trippy. but so what? It works!

Used for years by makeup artists and superstars like Madonna, Gwen Stefani, Kate Hudson, and supermodels galore, Egyptian Magic comes from humble beginnings. Check out the (somewhat convoluted yet cute) story here by owner and found Lord-Pharaoh ImHotep-AmonRa, "with Peace, Many Thanks, and Many Blessings." Love it.

According to their website, "it improves your complexion, heals scars, relieves many skin ailments (eczema and psoriasis), leaves your hair with a lustrous sheen, and more." One friend uses it religiously after waxing. My friends and I can attest that this product does all that and more. (Note: gynecologists also recommend it. Enough said.) Try it on your split ends--"what split ends?" you will say after putting on the tiniest amount. Seriously.

One four-ounce jar will last you over one year, even with everyday use. As I say with most products I recommend, a little goes a long way; with Egyptian Magic, I really mean it. Price: $36 and it comes with a money-back guarantee. A steal for what you receive in return.

And really, who couldn't use a cream that offers divine love on the label?

Go to to order online or locate a store near you that carries it.
