Soft, Fluffy and Wonderful!

I am a SteamCream convert!

I’d heard a bit about these creams and I really didn’t know what the heck it was all about; a cream that’s made through steam processing with natural ingredients? Is this unique?

It turns out, it actually is, at least with SteamCream.

Their awesome formula includes a calming oatmeal infusion base as well as a variety of essential oils, vegetable oils and butters.

I honestly thought, meh, it’s just a glorified hand cream, but I’ve been able to use this on my face, hands and body alternatively with great effects. My skin has felt softer, more hydrated and youthful looking with this cream. Also, the one I received – Chagrin – was so lovely and has an amazing scent. It’s strange, I actually think that it includes some measure of rose, which I normally wouldn’t like, but for some reason, this scent is amazing. It works, whatever it is!! LOL.

Plus, they come in these amazing tins that are really cute and uniquely made – they have thread on them that allows for you to screw them closed so unlike most normal tins that you just push the lid onto (and that spill), this one was jostled around in my handbag all week and didn’t spill at all.

I highly recommend these for anything – as a quality hand cream, face cream, or body cream. They’re gentle enough to use anywhere you like. I would definitely take these in my purse for using anywhere, especially on weekend trips when I don’t want to drag my whole box of tricks with me. These work extremely well for traveling in your purse and the designs of these is so adorable! I will certainly be purchasing more of these, especially the UK and USA themed ones! I’m possessed with the Olympics spirit at the moment so I’ll be picking those 2 up! I definitely think they have many designs and types of creams that will be great for anyone and they’re very decently priced; I plan on giving these as gifts in the future as they’re really easily customized.
