STEAMCREAM

I’m on a mission lately to use up my HUGE stash of skincare products before buying anything new. As a result I’ve discovered a few little gems that I didn’t even realise I had, in particular STEAMCREAM.

Steam Cream

I’ve known about STEAMCREAM for a while but have never tried it. I liked the idea of natural ingredients fused together with a shot of steam. I liked the idea of a fresh, handmade moisturiser. I liked the idea of those funky little reusable tins. But I wasn’t sure about the idea of this “one size fits all” approach. I didn’t want to buy some only to find it really didn’t suit me. Whilst £12.95 for 75g isn’t a huge amount of money for a moisturiser, it is if it doesn’t work for you!

On my mission to use up my massive stash, I discovered a sachet of STEAMCREAM lurking in the bottom of my cupboard. I finally got round to using it this week. This little 2g sachet amazingly gave three days worth of applications. I loved it from the first use!

Steam Cream ingredients

First of all, it smells beautiful. I am always going on about how I love beautiful smelling products and this is made with some of my favourite ingredients: neroli, lavender and rose. Have you ever tried the Gorgeous moisturiser from Lush? It smells just like that, only it’s way cheaper.

Surprisingly, it’s super light and absorbs so quickly! I don’t know why, but I had imagined that STEAMCREAM would be a thick, heavy cream but it isn’t. It’s not a cream-gel, but it feels like one as it’s so light, yet it has left my skin feeling so nourished and soft. I have combination skin which can be tricky to deal with; a lot of moisturisers can be too heavy for the oilier areas or too light for the drier areas. This just works, my skin loves it.

I’m actually now really annoyed at myself for not trying this sooner. The only thing making me think “hmm” is that it’s not selling itself as a whizzy, fancy, anti-aging cream. It’s just a simple moisturiser. I’ve been using anti-aging creams since my early twenties and I don’t have any wrinkles yet. Part of me worries that if I stop, I might suddenly get them! I think will buy myself a tin of STEAMCREAM (once I get through the rest of my stash of moisturisers so that’ll probably be after Christmas!) and just up the ante on my night-time routine.

Have you tried STEAMCREAM or found any little gems lurking in your cupboards? Let me know!

  7. A interesting and little known fact about Steam Cream, it is actually by Lush. It used to be part of their sister company B Never to Busy to be Beautiful but they now sell it as a stand alone product :)
    It's a really amazing cream though in terms of what is in it and how the ingredients are processed.

  8. I got a tin of this but I've only used on my body - I love the consistency and how it perform but unfortunately the lavander scent is not to my liking... wish they would do an unscented version :( xx
