Do you miss the good old days of slathering layers and layers of your body butter? Because it can’t be only me who uses less than a pea-size portion of my night cream so it could last the month. With prices getting higher, our hands our definitely getting tighter, and the only way to keep our skin clear is to stop worrying and start looking for alternatives.
May I say that during this journey of breaking up with my holy grail products, I found these 5 Egypt made products that mended my broken heart and monthly salary.
Vitamin C-Mix Serum by Pharmix
Pharmix has been receiving hype over this C-Mix serum and the Hair Mix serum. I only tried the face Serum and I love the results so far. Vitamin C is called the skin doctor for a reason, as you will get an instant glow, clearer skin, and enhanced complexion. And as we know, every skin is different, so if this did not serve your face the best, you can use it to fade scars and dark spots on your legs or back. This one retails for 150 L.E on their Facebook Page, but I always find it on discount in local pharmacies, so look out for it!
Thermos Scrub by Laurette
While scrubs are the easiest to DIY at home, this Thermos scrub saves you the hassle of mixing ingredients and you get a whole jar to for 75 L.E. It whitens, smoothes, and removes dead skin effectively. If you decide to follow a good skincare routine, this scrub is a must for starting off right. And the best part about it is that it comes in a glass jar that can be reused with no plastic waste involved.
Strong n’ Long – Nourishing Nail and Cuticle Oil by Joviality
Have you been a fan of Sally Hansen’s Vitamin E cuticle oil? Well, don’t dwell. This local Strong n’ Long Nourishing Nail and Cuticle oil (quite a name) costs 110 L.E and gets you similar results. It leaves your nails shinier, stronger, and your cuticles less apparent. Also, the applicator is very efficient, and it comes in the perfect size that fits in your make up bag.
Body Cream by Nefertari
This body cream with Strawberry essential oil leaves your body smelling sweet and smooth as well. Again, you get a jar to recycle, and the consistency is so rich it makes it worth the 137 L.E. I believe they have other yummy scents, but this one makes me miss The Body Shop body butter less and less.
Blush Cream by All Green Natural Cosmetics
This one is a real thrill, and while it is not necesssarily a skincare product, it is 100% natural so it can be included in your daily routine. All Green is created by a group of Pharmacists and they have released all-natural, chemical-free beauty products. This Blush Cream, which is one of their best selling, is for 60 L.E, and it stays on, looks so natural, and totally natural.
