Review: Steamcream

After reading about Steamcream in a number of magazines and blogs I was intrigued to give it a try and test it out for myself. Then, low and behold, being the mind-reader that my mother is, she bought me some for my stocking this Christmas. Steamcream is a moisturisor made entirely out of natural , fresh and vegan ingredients, it has even been approved my the Vegan society. The cream is made by a unique process which uses a shot of steam to mix and fuse the ingredients together, which in turn creates a lightweight formula to provide beautiful skin. The cream can be used everywhere and anywhere, face, hands and body. I tend to use mine on my face and hands as I feel it is a bit of a waste to use on the body, but if your feeling frivolous  go ahead! The cream is suitable for all skin types and immediately hydrates and moisturises leaving your skin smooth and silky. It is a great base for make up aswell as being used on its own. 





I am a huge fan of rich, creamy moisturisors that you can feel working, and this one definitely covered those aspects. It left a light residue on my skin, which people with spot-prone skin may not like, however, it does leave your skin beautifully smooth and soft. The scent of the cream is also gorgeous, the natural ingredients of oatmeal, orange flower water, almond  jojoba oil and cocoa butter shine through, although I thought the scent was almost lavender. 



Each tin of Steamcream contains an identical product, however, the tin itself is unique. You can choose your own beautifully designed tin from a huge variety, including limited edition tins by designers so there is one for every taste! 




I would 100% recommend steamcream, it is natural, ethical, and is the ultimate all round moisturisor! 

Steamcream is available from many department stores aswell as online for £12.95

  1. I love Steam Cream on my hands as they get extremely dry, but I had to stop using it because I really can't stand the smell... I couldn't work out why, because the description doesn't sound toooo bad... but maybe if you think it's lavender, that would be why i don't like it because i absolutely hate lavender! Your tin design is absolutely lovely though!

  5. This product have some parabens. This has been found in breast cancer tissue and it has been widely proven that it messes up your hormone levels, acting as if it was estrogen and all that. It's not the worst there is, but personally I prefer as little unnatural substances as possible. It is very possible to make a cream without it, only it wouldn't last as long.
    I wrote to the company and suggested a smaller version so that it is actually used up within those couple of weeks. They told me that if more came along with the same thought, they'd think about it. If more write a little enquiry to them stating the same as me, we could all feel a teensy weensy bit safer, who's with me? ;)
