Review: Steamcream - the packaging!!!

This is a review of the much-hyped Streamcream. This was a gift from Yuming from Beauty Box when we met up in November.

What it does: (from steamcream.co.uk)
We handmake STEAMCREAM in the UK and Japan with fresh natural ingredients, fused together with a shot of steam. Our unique method means that STEAMCREAM gives your face instant refreshment the moment you use it. It’s super-moisturising, sinks deep down and revives your skin straight away. Use it to soften your body, hands and feet too. 

Price: 10.50 GBP or 1500 JPY. At this price, the British version is about $3 cheaper.

Pros:
  • Lightweight moisturizer that absorbs quickly into the skin.
  • Skin feels moisturized after use, but not sticky or greasy
  • The scent disappears soon after applying. 
  • Because of the above three points, I liked using this on my hands. I hate it when my hands are greasy or when they smell too strongly of my hand lotion!
  • Steamcream often comes out with different designs which are super cute!
Cons:
  • Steamcream suggests to use this everywhere, including on your face and body. It was too heavy for me to use on my face, but too light for me to use on my body during the winter.
  • Dipping your hands repeatedly into a tin is not very sanitary.

Would I repurchase? Maybe. I think the price point of this hand lotion is not really worth it, but the packaging is amazing. I might repurchase this if I find a cute design. This is a great item to give as a gift, since it's something that most people wouldn't splurge on!  Thanks again to Yuming for this!

Hope you enjoyed this review!

xoxo, K

  3. Each time they release a tin it is a limited edition, so I can see why they collect them. Is the product worth the hype? Not sure I would use it for face, but keen to try it out.

  4. Cute tin!  I have one too that I haven't reviewed yet.  I like the packaging but don't know that I would repurchase either.

  7. I got sucked in by the packaging but I ended up buying the plain one so I could do a proper review - overpriced cream that stinks! lol

  8. Glad you like it! I also think it's too light for winter but it's great for hotter months.
