Steamcream is a multi-purpose British (and Japanese) skin cream that I’ve wanted to try for years. Now I will admit my shallowness – I’ve always wanted to try the brand because of their cute packaging. Who doesn’t love cute packaging? They have every “art” tin that you could imagine. Pictured above is the Purpure design, which is perfect for a rose fiend like me.
This winter my skin has been so dry. I’m out in the elements more than ever and this is killing my already dry/dehydrated skin. I’ve been experimenting with every cream and salve that I can get my hands on.
The claims – The company says this handmade cream is a lightweight and instantly absorbs and moisturizes. It uses a steam method to hold the molecules together; hence, the name “Steamcream”. It contains nourishing ingredients like cocoa butter, sweet almond oil and jojoba oil. Plus, it contains essential oils like lavender, blue chamomile, orange blossom, neroli and rose.
The feel/scent/etc.: It’s a lightweight cream as advertised. The texture is very smooth. The aroma is a light “clean” lavender/neroli. The aroma reminds me of fancy Mediterranean soaps.
My experience: Yep, Steamcream was right. This is a moisturizing cream that is lightweight and absorbs quickly. For my needs, I’m using this as a daytime hand cream. It moisturizes but won’t leave a phone or a laptop feeling greasy. At night, I’m using straight up shea butter. Plus, a tin of Steamcream looks really cute on a desk.
If you are looking for a lighter weight botanical cream, I recommend this. It can be used on hands, body and even your face. It’s heavier than most lotions but it is quicker absorbing than many other creams that I have used.
Each tin is 75g (about 2.6 oz) making it great for travel. The lid screws on so you don’t have to worry about any messes in your carry-on. And I do like to travel with multi-purpose products to save on space.

FYI – This line is vegan and doesn’t test on animals. I know that my vegan friends have had problems finding natural and natural-ish hand creams without beeswax or lanolin.
