Steam Cream is made in UK and marketed as a multipurpose cream uniquely formulated using pure, unrefined steam for maximum absorption. And it does exactly what it promises – improves the appearance and softness of the skin.
The power and energy produced by bubbling steam melts and fuses the ingredients together at a speed that defies most traditional cream-making methods. The force and intensity allow the ingredients to emulsify instantly, producing this beautifully textured light and glossy cream.
The result is a soft, luxuriant and glossy cream. STEAMCREAM breaks down immediately on contact with the skin to disperse each ingredient directly to the areas they’re designed to benefit. The emulsion is held together very loosely and gently, allowing the cream to break down immediately on contact with the skin for maximum benefit.
STEAMCREAM refreshes areas of the skin that other creams find hard to reach.
In most creams, the emulsifying process is what holds the ingredients tightly together. It can also stop creams breaking down. Because of this, each ingredient struggles to enter the skin individually. It stays as a blend, moisturising the skin’s surface yet preventing its real benefits from reaching deep into the skin’s molecular structure.
The orange flower water, oatmeal infusion and glycerine hydrate and moisturise deep into the skin. The almond and organic jojoba oils combine with cocoa butter to seal in their goodness, softening the skin’s surface.
The process is topped off with a fragrance created from a natural blend of pure essential oils selected for their toning, soothing and healing qualities.
STEAMCREAM contains the following ingredients:
Oatmeal Infusion – anti-inflammatory, helps soothe and calm the skin.
Orange Flower Water – improves elasticity.
Almond Oil – high levels of vitamin E, anti-oxidant, conditions and keeps skin plump.
Lavender Oil – antiseptic, heals sore skin.
Organic Jojoba Oil – excellent skin moisturiser.
Cocoa Butter – softens the skins surface.
I got 2 tubs of Steamcream ( 10 GBP each ), lovely packaging ( yeah, I got the 2 featured above ) and smells divine. Personally, I think this line is very collectible ( artistically ).
Right, back to the cream itself. Steamcream feels very fresh & light, instantly soothes & calms my skin, very spreadable & doesn’t feels occlusive when used on hands & body.
It’s good enough to nurse & calm my Retin A induced redness & irritation. However, my complexion was rather greasy a few hours after application of this cream alone.
So, this will probably be my SOS intervention only if I am going to use it on my face; otherwise I am more than happy to slather this all over my body.
My verdict? A great product ( almost therapeutic ) that is very reasonably priced, nicely packaged but not ideal for facial use ( except for dry, atrophic skin ).
