Review: Steamcream

On April 4, 2012 by Michelle Ng

Hi all!

 

As the title suggests, today, I am going to review on Steamcream!

STEAMCREAM represents the latest concept in skincare. A longer lasting, intensive and effective moisturiser that is suitable for all skin-types and can be used on face, body & hands.

Natural and revitalising, STEAMCREAM is the ultimate multi-tasking moisture injection. Our unique STEAM process blends fresh, natural and traceable vegan ingredients for a deeper-reaching all-in-one cream.

STEAMCREAM breaks down immediately on contact with the skin, dispersing each ingredient directly to the area it’s designed to benefit. Plant extracts including oatmeal, orange flower water, organic jojoba and lavender oils can reach where they are needed instantly.

Many of you would have heard about the brand before and their iconic metal tin container. Each month, Steamcream releases new designs for the tins. This makes using the cream even more fun, especially if you like to collect metal tins like me! I am a fan of metal tins and cases and have a humble collection at home for display.

One Moisturiser – Many Designs.
STEAMCREAM comes packaged in a Japanese designed, flushed-lid, aluminium tin.Once sold out each eye-catching and constantly changing limited edition tin becomes a collectible and usable piece of art. Handy sized tin for on-the-go lifestyles at an affordable price.

Reduce – Reuse – Recycle!
STEAMCREAM is committed to being environmentally responsible and ethically sound. We encourage customers to: -

Reduce the number of products they use.
Reuse the tins for a number of storage options.
Recycle the tins to give them an exciting afterlife!

The design I picked up today was a limited edition design by Yoshino. This design is very much inspired by the cherry blossoms in Japan.

Check out their Facebook page HERE for the April designs.

Designed to suit today’s busy lifestyles – convenient to slip in your bag, take to work, the gym, on holidays or just keep at home. And its hand-luggage friendly at just 75g.

This metal tin is definitely light weight and its screw-top allows you to carry it all around without worrying its leakage.

This is one pot of luxurious cream, and for its price, I say it is worth the buy!

Ingredients:

Oatmeal Infusion (Avena sativa), Orange Flower Water (Citrus Aurantium amara, Aqua), Almond Oil (Prunus dulcis), Cocoa Butter (Theobroma cacao), Glycerine, Stearic Acid, Triethanolamine, Organic Jojoba Oil (Simmondsia chinensis), Lavender Oil (Lavandula augustifolia), Chamomile Blue Oil (Chamomilla recutita), Orange Blossom Absolute (Citrus Aurantium dulcis), Rose Absolute (Rosa damascena), Neroli Oil (Citrus Aurantium amara), Cetyl Stearyl Alcohol, *Coumarin, *Geraniol, *Citronellol, * Limonene, *Linalool, Perfume, Methylparaben, Propylparaben. *Occurs naturally in essential oils

Here is my review:

This is my first time trying out a product with oatmilk. From my research, oatmilk is nourishing, with high levels of naturally occurring minerals iron, zinc, manganese and vitamin B. It also soothes irritated skin and evens out the skin’s complexion.

I love any Lavender scented products and hence I might be a little biased towards this cream. If you have really sensitive skin especially towards fragrance oils, please try out a sample at the store before purchasing.

I think the ingredient that provides the most moisture to my skin is cocoa butter and jojoba oil. In fact, if you really want a complete organic moisturizer, jojoba oil is sufficient. I used jojoba oil alone as a moisturizer for most days. The added ingredients in this cream however, helps in your skin in other factors as well. These ingredients such as cocoa butter, retains the moisture in your skin. Hence, I like to use a generous amount of the steamcream as a night mask when I go to bed. This ensures that I wake up to soft and supple skin!

As I have dry skin, I cannot tell if the orange flower water, which is meant to control oil sebum, is working. Orange blossom is one of the natural materials that helps skin to balance its sebum production. If you have oily skin, it helps to slow it down and reduce skin; for dry skin, it encourages production and helps your skin to stay more flexible, naturally. Did this encourage sebum production? I cannot quite tell if there is a difference to be honest.

Overall, I like to use this mainly as a hand cream, and a night mask (by applying a thick layer on top of all my serums).

 

I foresee myself purchasing more of these once I run out of this cream!

Availability: BHG (Bugis and Clementi), selected Watsons, Nishino Pharmacy, SaSa and Unity

Price: SGD$25.90 (75g)

      Hi,
      I have been using a facial mask as a night mask for a year and i have faced no problems so far.
      This might be due to the fact that my skin type is dry and the products I use are either natural, or has very gentle ingredients.
      Hope this helps!
