SteamCream Ayame and Suruga Gift Set with Mirror

When I heard that SteamCream was releasing the limited edition Ayame and Suruga Gift Set with a mirror, I couldn't help myself.  I was first introduced to SteamCram by my U.K. partner in beauty and blogging, Grace (, who had purchased a Carmine box (a beauty box subscription service) for me, and it was one of the items in that particular shipment.

The Ayame and Suruga Gift Set is absolutely lovely and contains two full-sized tins as well as a lovely purse mirror that features both a regular and magnifying mirror in a sleek compact (£22.78 or $36.30).

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).

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
Overall rating: Booyah! for its cute tins, 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.
