Saturday, June 9, 2012 Brings SteamCream to the USA!

I recently joined, an e-mail service that offers a variety of products at discounted prices.  The product sales change daily.  For my first order, I decided to order SteamCream, a product to which I was introduced by my U.K. partner in beauty and blogging, Grace (  She had been kind enough to purchase a Carmine box (a beauty box subscription service) for me, and it was one of the items in that particular shipment.

For those of you not familiar with SteamCream, it is a steam-infused skincare product that come in these really cute, unique, collectable, limited edition tins.  This Beauty Insiders' Choice award-winning product features tins that are designed in Japan and contain a lightweight, vegan moisturizer made in England that contains nourishing oils that can be used on the body and face (75g, £12.95 or about $20 USD).  Sneakpeeq's price was $5.00!!! Can't beat that.

SteamCream tops off their formula with a fragrance described to be "from a natural blend of pure essential oils selected for their toning, soothing and healing qualities."  SteamCream claims to use only the freshest, traceable, natural vegan ingredients including:

  • Oatmeal infusion - a proven anti-inflammatory that helps soothe and moisturize the skin
  • Orange flower water - helps to improve elasticity
  • Almond oil - contains high levels of vitamin E which condition the skin and keep it plump
  • Lavender oil - from Provence contains antiseptic components which can help heal and reduce inflamed and sore skin
  • Organic jojoba oil - helps produce and easily-absorbed cream and is an excellent moisturizer and skin softener
  • Cocoa butter - seals in the essential oils and soften's the skin's surface

As the Sneakpeeq offer was around Memorial Day, being the patriot that I am, I had to order the Liberty Tin:

Overall rating: Booyah! for it's cute tin, great formula and versatility, though I would prefer a formula that was paraben-free.  The fragrance of the lavender oil really comes through in this product, but that doesn't bother me.

Have you tried SteamCream?  What are your thoughts on this product?
