STEAMCREAM

For those of you who read magazines such as Vogue, GQ, and InStyle, you may have already heard of STEAMCREAM. It  has won awards two years in a row (2010, 2011), once from the CEW for Best Everyday New Skincare and again the following year by the Pure Beauty Award for Best Design & Packaging. Between the magazine features and the awards, I really wanted to see what all the hype was about. As it turns out, STEAMCREAM is a U.K. created product that has made it's way to America. What makes STEAMCREAM so different from other skincare products is that it's freshly handmade using natural ingredients that are fused together by a shot of steam! 

I'm always looking for quality natural products and was really excited to give this a try. After using  my STEAMCREAM moisturizer, my skin felt soft and moisturized, without feeling greasy. The moisturizer is really lightweight and absorbs quickly into my skin. I'm really picky when it comes to face moisturizer because my skin tends to breakout easily. A moisturizer has to feel light and  absorb well for me to use it, without clogging my pores. STEAMCREAM definitely fits this criteria. 

The eco-friendly packaging is worth noting as well. It's a fantastic size in a sturdy container to throw in my purse or makeup bag for traveling, and the tins come in an unbelievable selection of stylish designs! I've included a few of my favorites, but you should really click on the link below to check out the amazing variety of designs they provide.

If you're as intrigued as I was as to the way they make this product, I've provided a blurb from their website to help explain it:


"It’s STEAMCREAM’s unique STEAM process that makes our cream much more effective on the skin. The force of the STEAM fuses the ingredients instantly - holding them together in a very gentle and loose emulsion. When it touches your skin, the naturally moisturising ingredients and pure, calming essential oils are released from the light emulsion so they can sink past the surface reaching the areas they are needed fast. Your skin will feel intensively moisturised and softer for longer.

By using such a simple process, we can invest in natural materials such as orange flower water, oatmeal and vegetable glycerine to hydrate your skin. Almond and jojoba oils, with moisturising cocoa butter, soften the skin’s surface.

We don’t need new science or fancy machines for this; we apply traditional yet effective methods in a simple new way."

    1. Agreed, my skin is so sensitive to break-outs, so non-clogging is a must!
