Effects[edit | edit source]

  • Generates one item from the current room's item pool.
  • Consumes 1 heart container or 2 soul hearts and turns them into a broken heart, which permanently decreases the maximum health limit.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • After using Magic Skin, if Isaac discards it and picks up another active item, Magic Skin will continue to appear in places such as Golden Chests and Treasure Rooms.
    • The more times Isaac uses Magic Skin, the higher chance Magic Skin will respawn.
    • Each new Magic Skin is fully recharged.
    • Magic Skin must be kept to prevent it from respawning; otherwise, new items will be replaced with Magic Skin in the future.
      • If Isaac has the Schoolbag, Isaac can keep Magic Skin in the inactive slot to prevent its respawning while still be able to use another active items.
  • After 12 uses, Isaac dies instantly.
    • If Isaac has extra lives, he will be revived with one heart, but picking up any new items kills Isaac instantly.
    • The Lost can use this item infinitely as he cannot gain broken hearts due to a lack of health.
  • Dying and reviving using any item does not repair the heart containers.
  • Collecting Missing No. while Magic Skin is not in your inventory after using Magic Skin at least once may replace all of your items with a single Magic Skin, even removing any transformations.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • This is a reference to the book by Honoré de Balzac called La Peau de chagrin. In the story, the main character finds a special talisman that grants wishes, but each wish weakens him and causes the talisman to become smaller, as well as his lifetime.
