I have been intrigued by STEAMCREAM for a while now. It is a product handmade in small batches in the United Kingdom and Japan entirely out of fresh, natural and vegan (approved by the Vegan Society) ingredients. A brand that has recently been causing a storm in the skin care world.
STEAMCREAM is made via a unique steam process. A shot of steam is used to force the ingredients to fuse together, creating a lightweight, effective and absorbent emulsion packed with essential oils. These oils penetrate the areas most in need of care and are suitable for every skin type.
I chose the Wendy special edition tin*, featuring makeup artist Wendy Rowe's portrait and the advice to use STEAMCREAM as "a great pre makeup base". Taking this advice, I used the cream over the entirety of my face. The cream has a simple and fresh (what I believed to be lavender) smell. It left a light, almost matte, texture upon my skin. I found it took a while to sink in, but I was left with such wonderfully smooth skin that the wait was worth it!
The cream is made with an impressive and beautiful smelling selection of natural materials including, oatmeal, orange flower water, almond, jojoba oils and cocoa butter.
In essence, every tin of STEAMCREAM contains an identical product. The variety comes into play when selecting your tin design. They have a huge variety, suitable for all tastes, some limited edition by well-known designers! These robust tins are made from stainless steel and perfect for reusing, be it to hold more beauty products or as storage! I admire STEAMCREAM for this eco-friendly and conscious attitude, and their use of raw and sustainable materials. To top it all off they are 100% against animal testing!
Is STEAMCREAM worth the hype? Definitely! It can be used all over the body, is ethical and moisturises like a dream! At only £12.95, your body deserves the treat!
