Steam Cream

I first saw Steam Cream tins on the ASOS website and immediately thought how pretty the tins were. Now I've finally got my paws on Mademoiselle* a limited edition tin of Steam Cream 3-in-1 moisturiser. Mademosielle comes in a copper coloured metal tin, with purple, green and yellow stripes. Steam Cream is stamped into the top and it is adorned with a hand drawn image of a woman wearing a summer hat - it looks lovely on my bedside table.
Steam Creams are handmade in the UK and Japan using natural ingredients, fused together with a shot of steam. The moisturiser has quite a strong lavender smell which I'm not very keen personally on but I've found that disappears once I've applied it, though if you are using it to moisturise your hands it probably sticks around a little longer. But it's also packed with lots of other goodies such as oatmeal infusion, orange flower water, almond oil, cocoa butter and organic jojoba oil - wow that's a long list.
I was quite surprised to find my face gets on well with Steam Cream. Not because it's a bad product but because it's quite a rich moisturiser and suffering from an oily t-zone I was expecting to look super-shiny. But while it's a rich moisturiser it certainly isn't a heavy one and sinks in well to the skin. I'm still only using this as my night time moisturiser at the moment though, to replace my Eurcerin one, because I'm worried it will make my make up slip earlier.
I've also found that it's actually helped my acne a bit. I must stress that Steam Cream does not claim to be an anti-acne moisturiser and I don't know if it's just the cream or that in combination with my face wash, but I have found the little under-the-skin-bumps around my mouth and chin have gone down. Super plus points for Steam Cream from me.
A little goes a long way so I have feeling this 75g tin will last me quite a while, but I will do a little blog update once I run out to see how I am getting on. Steam Cream is priced at £13 a tin which isn't bad for multi purpose product which can be used n your face, hands and body and which is packed with fab, natural ingredients.

Have you tried Steam Creams? You can buy a tin online from Steam Cream or ASOS.
