My skin saviour since February has been Steamcream.

Due to a slight travel disaster I have recently repurchased so I thought I would give it a little review.

Over the winter I had a total nightmare with my skin. Generally I am pretty lucky with it, however a combination of cold, being run down and early mornings over Christmas left it totally over sensitised with a patch of dermatitis which my normal skin care regime couldn’t shift.

My mum bought me Steamcream in an attempt to calm it down and since I started using it my skin is back to normal.

Steamcream is made down the road from me in Poole by the parent company of Lush. It isn’t available from Lush stores and is actually pretty tricky to get hold of. You can get it in John Lewis and a few independents but I got mine from Beauty Naturals where it is £11.99 with free delivery in the UK.

Steamcream is made by fusing natural ingredients with steam. It is extremely light but moisturising and penetrates deep into your skin. It also comes in super cute limited edition tins which are made in Japan.
It contains…..
Oatmeal Infusion
Orange Flower Water
Almond Oil
Cocoa Butter
Jojoba Oil
Lavender Oil
Chamomile Blue Oil
Orange Blossom
Absolute Rose
Absolute Neroli Oil
So as you can tell it smells great!

My tin is the fleur version.

Word of warning though if travelling you may want to put the tin in a zip lock bag…. Though the rest of my toiletries are VERY moisturising!
