Introducing: Steam Cream

steam cream
I'd like to introduce to you a fantastic multi-purpose product that has been around for quite some time now. I feel ashamed that I haven't spoken about it before as I've been around the cream for years now. This is because the product I am about to talk about, Steam Cream, was originally a B Never Too Busy To Be Beautiful product named 'Sweet Asa'. You can still buy the Sweet Asa cream if you wanted, but this new cream is a lot cheaper (£9.95 vs £15.65 for Sweet Asa).

So what's this Steam Cream all about? As I'm rubbish at explaining things, I'll let Steam Cream introduce you:

STEAMCREAM represents the latest concept in skincare. Using a revolutionary steam-infused manufacturing process, STEAMCREAM provides a long-lasting, intensive and effective form of skincare that can be used on face, body and hands.

STEAMCREAM have pioneered the use of a steam technique to create this unique, gentle and loosely-bound emulsion. This looseness allows each ingredient – including a moisturising and soothing oatmeal infusion, orange flower water and healing lavender oil – to breakdown and penetrate areas of the skin that other creams find hard to reach.

Packaged in a compact, flush-lid aluminium tin featuring unique and collectable designs, STEAMCREAM is a perfect on-the-go product – convenient to slip into your bag, take to work, to school, on holidays or to the gym. And it’s hand luggage friendly at just 75g!

You might have read that and rolled your eyes at all this steam business right? Another product gimmick? Well not this time, because steam has been recognised for its benefits to skincare for centuries. For any of you beauty geeks let me show you how the steaming process works:

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 emulsion is held together very loosely and gently, allowing the cream to break down immediately on contact with the skin for maximum benefit.

You'll find that with your ordinary cream, the emulsifying process is what holds the ingredients tightly together and it can also stop creams breaking down. As a result, the ingredients struggle to be fully absorbed by the skin and therefore just 'sits' on the skin, unable to really benefit deep down. With Steam Cream, the steaming process creates a gentle and loose emulsion, allowing each ingredient to break down and be fully absorbed. And you may be wondering what wonder ingredients it has in it and being another sister company of LUSH cosmetics it doesn't disappoint. Here's an ingredients list:

Oatmeal Infusion (Avena sativa), Orange Flower Water (Citrus Aurantium amara, Aqua), Almond Oil (Prunus dulcis), Cocoa Butter (Theobroma cacao), Glycerine, Stearic Acid, Triethanolamine, Organic Jojoba Oil (Simmondsia chinensis), Lavender Oil (Lavandula augustifolia), Chamomile Blue Oil (Chamomilla recutita), Orange Blossom Absolute (Citrus Aurantium dulcis), Rose Absolute (Rosa damascena), Neroli Oil (Citrus Aurantium amara), Cetyl Stearyl Alcohol, *Coumarin, *Geraniol, *Citronellol, * Limonene, *Linalool, Perfume, Methylparaben, Propylparaben. *Occurs naturally in essential oils

There's some gorgeous stuff in there. Gentle oats to soothe dry skin, almond oil for their high levels of Vitamin E, Glycerine to help absorb the moisture, Lavender Oil to soothe redness and so on. But have I actually used the product? Well you'll notice that from the title that I chose to not include the word review as I have used it once or twice but not long enough for me to let you lovelies know what I think. What I'm trying to do here is to introduce you to this product so that you can all go check it out and see what you think! Having said that, when I have used it it's always left my skin beautifully soft and refreshed. I could definitely feel a difference. I love the fact that it's a multi-purpose product and that it comes in those adorable tins!

So overall this cream is definitely one to keep on eye on and I'm excited to see it doing so well already. If you want to have to oppurtunity to buy some then you can order online (www.steamcream.co.uk) but if like me you like to test products out in person then you can go to John Lewis, Libertys (London), The Saatchi Gallery (London) and M.A.D.E. You'll find more stockists on the Steam Cream website, oh and you can also buy from this product from ASOS. I think that's it for that, I'd love to hear from those who've tried the product. Let me know below!
