When it comes to beauty products, there are many that claim to be magical or life-changing—though few rarely live up to the hype. But according to Amazon users, this is one may be worth trying if you've got cracked hands, chapped lips, eczema, or other skin issues.
Egyptian Magic skin cream has a cult following on social media and the internet, with women swearing the thick, Vaseline-like cream is the ultimate cure for their winter skin woes—which may explain why sales recently spiked by more than 5,000 percent on Amazon, according to Allure.

The all-natural skin cream is packed with natural ingredients like olive oil, beeswax, honey, bee pollen, royal jelly, and bee propolis (read: if you're allergic to bees or their pollen, you should probably check with your doctor before using). You can use it anywhere you've got dry, itchy, or flaky skin—hands, face, lips, legs, feet, elbows, you name it. You can even work it into your hair if you've got dry locks. Just rub it in your hands first until it warms up and becomes an oil, then apply.
The cream's maker, LordPharaoh ImHotepAmonRa, was inspired to create the moisturizer decades ago after chatting with a mysterious jetsetter, who claimed a similar formula was found in ancient Egyptian tombs, according to The New York Times. While we're not sure if Cleopatra was a fan, but we do know the cream is getting rave reviews from hundreds of Amazon customers. Kate Hudson and Brooke Shields also love the balm, and Madonna is reportedly fond of it, too.
While it's ideal for the wintry months ahead (goodbye cracked hands and cuticles!), you can also apply it to skin after a bad sunburn, too. Folks also use it to treat stretch marks, eczema, scars, cuts, and scrapes, according to the Egyptian Magic website.
"Love this. I use it everyday. It really helps to keep my extremely dry skin moisturized," one commenter wrote on Amazon. "Love love this product! I use this for cuts, scraps and scars. I also use this for diaper rashes. Works like magic," another wrote. According to users, a little bit goes a long way, so that tub should last you a while!
