I use the egyptian cream as my night moisturizer, also as my make up remover, and I use jeju aloe as my hair mask and gel, also as my make up primer. Been using both for like 7 days now. I cannot give you full review yet until I use these for a month at least, as long as they don’t cause trouble to my skin!

I really dont like how the oily feeling egyptian cream gives me. I put a tiny amount on my face but I still dont like it at all. I believe, this cream is more for dry and flaky skin. I’m thinking of replacing it with jeju aloe, as my night time moisturizer because I don’t like waking up in the next morning to super duper oily skin like this 😦 But I highly recommend egyptian cream if you’re looking for natural-based make up remover! Trust me, this works wonder as make up remover. It even removes waterproof eyeliner and mascara! HOW? Take a small amount of the cream and in rotating motion, apply it all over your face, focusing on waterproof make up. Take wet towel and wipe it off OR use cotton pads to wipe it off.

Been using Jeju Aloe as my hair mask and gel (hair treatment) – since my hair is quite dry! I spotted few differences after applying aloe vera gel to my hair. My hair feels a lot smoother now which I love. Best uses for everyone, women and men. This product also works like magic as a make up base and helps in soothing sunburned skin!

WHY ARE BOTH OF THEM CALLED AS ALL PURPOSE CREAM/GEL? Because they can be used for several other things like:

  • Make Up Primer/Base
  • Make Up Remover
  • Day and Night moisturizer
  • Face/Body Mask
  • Body Conditioner
  • Shaving cream
  • Hair treatment (hair gel, hair mask)
  • Body moisturizing lotion
  • Highlighter (Egyptian Magic – apply on cheekbone, brow bone)
  • Relaxing sunburn (Jeju Aloe only)

**DK – Don’t Know
