EXCITING! Review - Steam cream

Hello lovelies!

Now I have something quite exciting to share with you!
The other day was sent a pot of Steam cream by the lovely ladies at the Steam cream HQ
I was so excited to receive the cream and a lovely handwritten note in the post, as it is my first professional review with an exciting product I haven't tried yet!








Note - I was sent this product for free, please see the newly added disclaimer paragraph at the bottom of my blog
But of course I will give you as much information as possible, my honest thoughts and opinions as always!

So let's get down to business!

TIN




Firstly how fab is the tin!
It is so me - pink & snake skin this particular tin design is the RITA , it's sadly limited edition though!
I think it would look so beautiful on my vanity and as it is so small it is perfect to pop in my handbag

There are other fab tin designs!



Another plus is you can use the tin when the cream runs out this is all part of the green friendly ethos of the product
Hair clip storage perhaps!

It is the perfect handbag size tin & I am definitely going to carry this around at school, perfect to quickly moisturise my hands & arms during the day as it gets colder

CREAM






The cream itself is designed to be used on face, body and hands - It is a really lovely thick cream and it left my skin feeling so silky and soft
What i really like about the product is it's different from other creams, it absorbs so easily into the skin and leaves it radiant

"The 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 allows the
ingredients to emulsify instantly"

The cream has quite a strong scent of lavender & other floraly herbally smells
It is a really natural smelling product, and I think this would be lovely to use at night as the heady lavender smell would definitely aid me on my travels to the land of nod!

It is packed with lovely natural ingredients too
Organic Jojoba Oil, cocoa butter, almond & lavender oil, orange flower water and oatmeal
And to top it all of, it's vegan friendly and not tested on animals!



Steam cream retails for £10 for 75g
I think this is very reasonable for the quality of product you get as it is so moisturising it will certainly last a long time
It is definitely going to become a loved part of my skin care routine & I totally recommend it to you girlies!

You can buy it from ASOS, Selfridges
Or the checkout the steam cream website here - http://www.steamcream.co.uk/top.html

I hope you ladies enjoyed this - Leave me a comment!

I would really love to hear your feedback and what you thought about this very exciting type of review!

Great review, and stunning tin design, I would have to pick the Union Jack. Funny cause i was going to say you could use the tin afterwards for earrings/hair clips etc... maybe collect the tins lol :)
