Steam Cream I won't forget you




Steam Cream moisturiser has become a bit of a cult classic, however one that I had never got involved in.  I think the beautiful packaging made me feel it was maybe a bit of a gimmick and would lead to disappointment in the long run. How wrong can you be?

So decision one is to pic your tin, and that is no easy job.  Floral, vintage, geometric, collaborations - Steam cream has them all. I was lucky enough to avoid this traumatising task by being sent one to try.  This stunning blue chrysanthemum tin was designed by Japanese artist Maki Kahori and sits as well on my dressing table as it does in my forget-me-nots.

The cream itself is an absolute delight to use.  The super light texture is achieved by fusing the natural ingredients together with a shot of steam (hence 'steam cream').  The product is handmade and contains camomile blue which lightens and brightens the skin gently.  It smells divine and I just can't quite work out how I survived without it.

The cream is not only great for soothing and reviving a tired complexion but also great for body and hands.  Treat yourself to this little tin of happiness, I promise you won't regret this one!
