I have to admit, I had never heard of Steamcream before but when I was sent a tin recently & I read the information, I was really interested to try it out.
Freshly handmade using high-quality, natural ingredients that are fused together by a shot of steam. This unique method makes the cream very lightweight, providing long-lasting hydration for the face. The texture also makes it a perfect nourishing treat for your body and hands too. I know, when I read that I was a bit nervous as well! I have always stuck to the ‘rules’ separate creams for the face, hands and body. I have no idea why, I’ve never really been one for rules in any other department!
The steam process is not only how Steamcream got its name, but is what makes it such a unique and effective moisturiser. Many creams on the market use complex molecules to bind their ingredients, which gives them a heavy emulsion that sits on the surface of the skin and only moisturises the outer layer. Because Steamcream is so light and loosely bound it penetrates into your skin leaving it smooth, supple and flexible for longer, and without any nasty chemicals.
Recommended for it’s healing properties so it’s perfect for people who suffer from psoriasis and eczema and those with sensitive skin. Each ingredient has been carefully selected for its unique soothing, calming and toning benefits. Steamcream also contains soothing oats, calming neroli and chamomile oil, rose absolute and orange flower water.
Apart from the fab cream, which I have been trying on my face and hands, (still can’t get used to it, but it works) they also have a massive collection of tins, and you can pick your own favourite, if you head to their website, you’ll be amazed at the different tins! Their latest collaboration is with talented Japanese poet, designer and embroidery artist Mako Kikkawa. Mako Kikkawa was inspired by the majestic Hoàn Kiêm Lake in Hanoi, the capital of Vietnam, and this design was carefully embroidered by hand and transformed into a beautiful tin.
