Beauty Review: SteamCream

Thursday, March 20, 2014

I was sent a tin of STEAMCREAM to try and I'm a believer. Before I even used the cream I had a positive impression because I love products that have more than one purpose (it can be used for your face, body, and hands) and things you can repurpose once you're done with the product itself (STEAMCREAM comes in a decorative tin that you can reuse any way you want once you have used up the cream). 

The cream itself has a natural but not overpowering smell, which isn't surprising since this handmade cream is full of high quality natural ingredients like lavender essential oil, orange flower water, chamomile blue essential oil, sweet almond oil, cocoa butter, rose absolute, organic jojoba oil, neroli oil, and others. The cream has a really gorgeous texture that absorbs into your skin quickly and is really effective without being greasy. You can really see an improvement after just one use. It didn't clog my pores on my face or cause any issues. On my hands it really helped my cuticles and the skin around my nails which is notoriously dry and I have a terrible habit of picking at. I was definitely impressed. It works better than a lot of expensive creams I've tried, and has much better ingredients.

Now for the packaging; there are so many fun tins to choose from you are bound to find a design you like and the possibilities for what you do with it once the cream is gone are endless! The tin they sent me is the one pictured the Precious design which is one of the newer ones. You can take a look at all the tins here in their shop. Not only does it look pretty, perform well, and contain high quality ingredients, but it's affordable. It's only $20 for 75ml. Definitely worth a try if you're in the market for a new cream or love trying out new beauty products!
